Congrats to the 'Wolves Scott, nice to see them 1st in the West...without their full roster even.  I hope this is the year they get out of the first round (or further).  K.G. is one of the best players on the planet right now, and deserves to have a better team for once.  Anyways, in other NBA News...I just saw that the 1st in their Division Nets fired coach Byron Scott today.  I guess I'm not surprised, from what we have heard in the past, but it still is funny how coaches get fired even when they are winning (of course, the Atlantic isn't exactly winners central this year, I think the Nets are 22-20 in 1st place).  Check it out here:

Well, we got our biggest snow of the winter so far last evening/overnight/today.  I think we have around 6-8", and its blowin like a mofo today.  Luckily, we don't have to leave town for anything it doesn't affect us too, for some reason I kind of enjoy a good snowstorm once in awhile, as long as no one is hurt or anything.  I don't know if it was because we were little back then, but it just doesn't seem like we get the snowstorms like we did when I was a kid (at least here in Nebraska).  This is the most we have gotten this year, seems like it came down in feet when I was a kid (ok, maybe exaggerating a little). :)

I know these might be tough finds for anyone right now, but if anyone has these somewhat plentiful in their area, I'm looking for the Saga Luke Skywalker (Hoth Attack) as well as the Saga Ultra Wampa.  It seems as if I am always missing these figures in my area, and I am hoping to pick them up for around retail price.  Card condition isn't a major concern to me (I'm an opener), although I would like them carded.  Also, while I'm at it, I'd be happy to take a Jabba's Palace Luke (or anything else from the Tatooine wave) if you happen across extras :).  Thanks so much for any help!

Well, after shopping this weekend...things must still be selling well..and I'm always a day late....or they aren't getting product.  A newer "Greatland" Target that we frequent has been my best bet for new stuff this year, but all they had for the past two weeks is some Animated Clone Wars figures and a lone R-3PO.  Then, a trip to TRU revealed the majority of the Bail Organa wave and another 4 R-3POs.  I must always miss my chance at that elusive Hoth Luke (and Wampa for that matter).  I have only seen the Ultra figures show up once, they aren't at any of the stores near us now.  I'm about ready to go the ebay route, but trying to use some patience :).

I wasn't able to get online until late today, looks like I missed it.  Is there still anywhere that this can be seen?  Sounds like it is pretty sweet!

I hope the Ultra series continues as well, its a nice way for us to get some of the "bigger" items.  Aside from Riekaan, I think most people have been satisfied with what is included for around $10.  Anyways, I really wish we'd have some sort of Chirpa as well.  I'm one who would be happy with several new Ewoks to add to our collections (specifically the ones that were in the vintage line).  But, if nothing else, we should at least get the Chief :P.  Hopefully he will appear single carded, or as a two pack with another (a la Yoda w/Younglings).

The latest update at has a pic of the Saga Ultra Ewok w/Glider, also includes this blurb at the end:

"Coming next month…
Don’t miss the first look of Unleashed Bossk in the Star Wars Insider #74 in February!"

I guess the rumors are true, it will be interesting to see how this one turns out :).

I guess this is an Ultra set, but kind of fits in with the "Battle of Endor" theme too...if I posted this in the wrong place, I'm sorry :).  Hasbro has a pic up of the next Ultra figure....Ewok w/glider:

Yeah, my friends and I were just discussing this a few days ago...that is a great idea.  They should either release greatest hits discs or include the vintage games along with the newer versions.  I think they'd find a lot of buyers if they'd include the old Marios, Zelda, Tecmo Super Bowl, Kid Icarus, Castlevania, Mega Man, Turtles, Double Dribble, etc.  Nice idea Scott. :)

The Original Trilogy / Re: News regarding EP 7,8,9 rumor (TV Series?)
« on: January 23, 2004, 09:22 AM »
I kind of agree with those who would rather see an animated series.  I think it would be pretty great to have Star Wars in some form after the final movie, and I'm one of those who greatly enjoyed the Clone Wars shorts.  I think you could explore a lot of different areas, and I really think they would be popular if they included OT themes, characters, etc.  When it comes down to it, those are the people and areas that most people (and casual fans) associate with the most.  Everyone knows Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie, Vader, 3PO, R2, Yoda, and Lando.  I'm not quite sure how live action would work out either, I guess you never know, I guess I'd just as soon see animated.  I'm one of those too who doesn't really want to see the "name" of Star Wars drug down by being "too much" what happened in some instances with Star Trek.

I just saw that GH has news/pics of a possible prototype Ewok with glider.  Could it be coming this year?  You can check it out here:

Yeah, Wal-Marts seem to be the worst around here too.  The one closest to us has had the Obi-Wan club wave here and there, but that is it so far.  The other one closest has had solid pegs of Padme pilots for a looooong time.  With the exception of a couple of figures from Wal-Mart, I've had all of my finds at Target and occasionally TRU.  Glad to hear people are finding the Hoth and/or Tatooine waves in their areas...that hasn't hit too much in NE Nebraska/NW Iowa yet from what I have seen (although I did find a lone R3PO.)

How are the Star Wars toys selling through in your area?  After taking a look my last few shopping trips, it really seems like Star Wars stuff is selling great around here.  Although I am disappointed to find empty pegs a lot (still looking for Hoth Luke, Wampa, Tatooine Wave, etc.), it is so much better than seeing 2002-2003 stuff hanging on the pegs forever.  At least around here, even the Clone Wars stuff is sold out for the most part.  The only things I saw last week were the Clone Wars animated figures at Target, the regular fig pegs were completely bare.  They also had 2 Screen Scenes left.  The TRU had the Concept Stormie wave (finally got one), and the new Jedi Warriors pack, but the rest of the basic figure stuff was gone pretty much too.  It is kind of heartening to see Star Wars selling well, unless it is just me seeing things.  Although it is hard for me to find stuff, since I'm in a small town and have to drive 40 minutes to go to these stores, I have still had better luck the past two months than I did the entire year before that.  And like I said, its better than seeing old pegwarmers.

Other Collectibles / Re: Playskool Line: Do You Collect...Opinions?
« on: January 20, 2004, 02:11 PM »
If the Playskool line does end up making a comeback, which characters/ships/etc. would you like to see done in this form?  It might be a good guess that there would be character two packs, judging from the past survey Hasbro sent out, and the 3PO/Leia combo in this auction.  Anyways, for those of you who collect these, what would you like to see?  A few I wouldn't mind seeing (keep in mind, I only collect OT that is why my list is the way it is):

Leia (the one in the auction, possibly other versions?)
Obi Wan Kenobi
Lando (Bespin first, then maybe other versions)
Han (Bespin/Endor outfits)
Luke (Bespin/Jedi outfits)
Royal Guard
Jabba the Hutt (with dais)
Tusken Raider/Jawa 2-pack

Tie Fighter w/Pilot
AT-AT (wishful thinking probably) or AT-ST

Just a few thoughts, I figure we won't get a whole heck of a lot in background characters in this line (but I guess you never know), so I stuck to somewhat main ones.  I'd be pretty psyched if this line came back, and some of these were included.
