Check the card inserts.  You'll find some information on the bottom of them regarding manufacturing in the UK.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: TSC Recent Acquisitions

Scores like that don't happen every day.  The last time I made a score like this was Midnight Madness in 2005.

One thing about the arrival of those 30AC figures in eastern Canada makes me wonder, where do their figures come from?  I know that Hasbro does some manufacturing in Europe.  And it's been fairly well established that Europe is getting the first 30AC wave, too.  So I have to wonder if some of Eastern Canada is supplied by the European factories.

I believe that the North American sightings of the 30AC line have been in Canada so far.

Scored almost 2 full sets of these.  These are among some of the only TSC figures that I'll keep carded.  I got a complete carded set and 3 openers.  It's a novel wave, but I'm not terribly keen on buying most of these figures all over again.  At least it was somewhat easy to track down most of them in one shot.

I'm genuinely interested in seeing the difference between the original Kitik Keed'kak and this version.  I can easily recognize the different paint apps in the other cantina aliens.

Had a pretty decent score tonight. 

2 x Kitik Keed'kak
2 x Aurra Sing
2 x Nabrun Leids & Kabe
1 x Labria
1 x R4-M6
1 x Padme
1 x Yarael Poof
1 x Holo Obi-Wan
2 x R4-K5
2 x Commander Appo
2 x Elite Corps Clone
3 x Combat Engineer Clone Trooper


Looking forward to the morning when I'm a little more awake and I can open some of these.  I picked up a couple of extra things to help out some friends, but I really hope that the army builders don't go crazy on the Commander Appo's.  There's just no need, especially when there's a regular SA 501st Clone on the way in the SAGA Legends line.  Anyway, what are people going to do with all of those extra pauldrons?

Prices are starting to dip below the $2 mark in NJ again.  But just barely.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 2007 Rumors... Oh my!

I'm hoping it has 2 heads honestly...  I'd hate to hear the great debate and any anger/rage at the figure not being what people want...  That was suggested to Hasbro in a Q&A by the way, and they said it was "interesting".  Makes me wonder if they were just hinting at what they already knew or if they were shocked at the friggin' concept.

The body wouldn't need to change really, just needs 2 different heads is all...  Spirit of figures are so dull I really hope they don't milk this by leaving the option to do the "other" Anakin then.

I guess I could handle that since the Christensen character wouldn't be my first choice.

Hasbro mentioned in the Q&A sessions that if they would re-do the Spirit of Anakin Skywalker, that they would include heads for both Sebastian Shaw and Hayden Christensen.  Seems like that was a not-so-veiled hint.

I see the regular Face Off 2 sets on a fairly regular basis.  But I can't say that I've see any of the variant sets.  I'd like to get all three of those if possible, but I might have to wait for a con for the opportunity.

Dave Coulier is dead?

Where you been?  Uncle Joey's been dead for like four years now.

Not a day goes by that I don't miss that unfunny bastard.


Pshaw!  He ain't dead. IMDB told me so!!!  :P  Sad that I felt compelled to look that up.

R2 in cargo net?  What's that? 
As for the R2-D2 in cargo net, I'm thinking that's a ROTJ/Endor R2-D2.


Driodekas w/sheilds  ;D oh it's so on.  Hopefully it doesn't have kid freindly projectiles  ;) 
It's about time for this one.  I've been writing that in on wishlists for years now.

Jango Fett w/poncho?  Did I miss that scene?

That's from a deleted scene in AOTC where Dooku meets with Anakin and Padme before they're sent to the execustion arena.  I'm actually very happy to see this one.  Maybe Hasbro will make an SA Jango and decided to throw in the poncho.

1840 SW BASIC FIGURE CZ-4 JABBA PALACE DROID 6-53569-20657-6 is that CZ-3 pedecessor? ;)

You have to ignore some of the mispellings or typos in these things.  They called Darth Revan DARTH RAVEN, so some things just have to slide.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Utapau Again?
« on: January 29, 2007, 06:06 PM »
There seems to be some kind of assumption that this product, whatever it is, is going to involve Clone Troopers.  That may be the case.  But what about Obi-Wan, Grievous, the Seperatist leadership, the Droid Army, the Magna Guards, the Utapauans, the Utai...there are a number of possibilities here.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Vista: Bueno?
« on: January 29, 2007, 11:27 AM »
I was actually looking at a laptop recently at Best Buy and noticed that almost all of the laptops were gone.  The sales guy told me that they were cleaning them all out because they were XP equipped machines, and that they were expecting Vista equipped units soon.  But he also mentioned that people still wanted XP ready machines and to avoid Vista for the time being.  Best Buy is apparently offering people vouchers for Vista, but their computer guys are saying stay away for the time being.
