Anyone got an ETA on this thing?  I don't seem to recall hearing about one, or seeing one in this thread...  Of course, I don't pay attention real well either.

It looks like we'll finally be seeing this set released sometime in 2006, according to MR's plans for the upcoming year.  This would certainly be one of the more unique items in a collection.   8)

This was rumored to be a Target exclusive long ago, IIRC...  I'll have to check it out in person and decide, but I'm somewhat interested in them, and am long overdue in getting some new poker chips!

Sure will be interesting to see what this will cost and what the chip weight is, hopefully 11.5 gram.  :)

Why Beth, don't you play with any of your toys?  :P

I'm going to be busting them out for the Friday night Poker games. Of course, that means I'll have to actually start playing again. But I'm sure I can convince a few buddies to come over for some free beer and food.

Yes, that's whom I was referring to!  I know there was more to the story in another thread but the link is gone.  Thanks for finding that Dale.  I still laugh out loud every time I think of Jim.

I had e-mailed MR a few months ago about this and they replied that this was still going to be coming out, but that they were pushing their other merchandise first.  They wouldn't confirm a date, but gave me a 'soon' reply.

Can't wait to get one or two sets.  My current 11.5g set needs to be replaced and this would be the perfect set to do so.  Any word on how many will be in a set (300? 500?)

Found the original e-mail:

Dear Michael,

I believe we will be doing this product evenyually. It had been pushed
back due to the volume of products we are releasing at the moment. I believe the Marvel one will be released first and then the Star Wars one. I do not have any specifics however on when.I am sorry I can not be more informative.

Sincerely,

Jerry
