First of all, on the Theater Luke front, part of the reason for the bubble drops or whatever probably has something to do with the quality of the packaging as a whole. Mine (and I don't know if everyone else's is like this) came on a card that is about half as thick as a regular POTF2 card of that time period, and is about a third as glossy (at least on the back). I would wager this is why it is so difficult to find one of these in perfect condition (out of the five that my friends and I got on opening night of the ROTJ: SE, and yes there were five of us, so it was only one each, only one had no creases in the cardback). If Hasbro/Kenner put that little effort into the card, then it only stands to reason they cheaped out on the glue as well.
Okay, now on to the fun stuff...
When I read that thread yesterday (linked to from the now locked RS thread), I nearly fell off my chair laughing. If it were possible to be funny and serious at the same time, you certainly achieved that, Matt. The thing I found most surprising was that one of the RS forum mods even pretty much agreed with you about Greg(g)'s lack of thinking. I'm curious to know if Wise-ass has already written to reprimand you or ban you for speaking the truth about his beloved GNT.
I wish I were banned at RS.
It'd be like a badge of honor for me at this point.
Also, if Greg(g) actually bought vintage Stormtroopers by the truckload when they were being clearanced out in 1986, then he would be the most powerful sperm in the universe. Much stronger than Superman's "Krypton Super Sperm" that could completely destroy Lois Lane's fallopian tubes and uterus.
