Found a brace of Mawae's over the weekend.  Looks like he'll be one of the tougher figures in the new NFL series.

Got my Varitek email today 8)

Screw McFarlane.  As cool as the Umpire is, I wouldn't buy this set on principle since the catcher is a Red Sox player.  Any other team would've been fine.

BTW, anyone been seeing these solid regional cases showing up?  I've been seeing solid cases of Tiki Barber and Lawrence Taylor around here lately.

I agree, the Cloud Car is a definite must...and one I think is do-able at retail.  It isn't huge, so it should easily fit into the $15-$20 range as an exclusive somewhere (probably Target, if anywhere).  .
15-20 ? Sorry my friend it will cost around 25 and 30. Exclusives always go for more. I mean theys no reason why the TRU's Obi and Annie's Star Fighters are so high other than the pack in and it being an exclusive. It's too bad these things just can't be general releases.

I agree.  The running trend with exclusive vehicles has been $25 - $30 per unit.  A Cloud Car would easily run the same ammount, especially since the status of the original Kenner molds appears to be dubious at best.  I don't care for the price, but the trend is your friend when it comes to predicting these things.  And the trend is that if it's an exclusive we're looking at a $25 - $30 price tag.

Still waiting for my vader.  Has anyone who ordered it through diamond received theirs yet?

Not yet.  Got Yoda, the Sandys and Grievous maquette though.  Sometimes individual items can be a little slow.  I still wouldn't trade the discount I get by ordering through Diamond for getting the thing early.

hmm i wonder why Jordan is not in NBA Legends line up yet? maybe a potential super chase  ;D

Actually my guess would be that Jordan is too expensive to get his likeness at this point.  And believe me, if they break down and pay Jordan, it'll be like the Gretzky fiasco all over again.  No one, not even in Chicago, will have a hard time picking up a Jordan figure.

That's been the party line all along on the Legends figures.  Each player's likeness is individually negotiated, and word is that Jordan wants A LOT o' money.

Chiming in on this issue since I have been directly involved in the situation as one of the Administrators of the New Jersey Star Wars Collectors Club.

-Both traders had a good record of trading at the NJSWCC prior to this incident.
-Communication on this trade was not evidently not clear.
-This was a trade for a MOMC variation.

-The site this transaction was coordinated through (the NJSWCC) attempted to rectify the situation after a complaint was made by Tykrazen.  Jerkytoys was uncommunicative.  Based on the lack of communication and Jerkytoys unwillingness to void the trade altogether (including both parties shipping the goods back to one another) led to this dispute and his banning from the NJSWCC.

I'm getting the second edition Vader through my local comic shop for somewhere between $36 and $40.  It all depends on what the MSRP is.

Picked up my 2 Sandtroopers and Yoda the other day as well.  Can't wait to get those on the shelf!

So I guess this quote doesn't influence peoples opinions?

"The dark side clouds everything.  Impossible to see the future is." - Yoda in Attack Of The Clones

Yea, my AT-TE Driver's legs are pretty loose.  :P But no popping off of the limbs. :)

I had a Clone Wars 2-pack Clone Commander's arm come off.  I wasn't doing anything crazy with the figure, either.

I wonder, is white Sasquatch supposed to be Wendigo?

It might actually be Snowbird taking the form of Sasquatch.  I seem to recall that happening at least a couple of times in Alpha Flight.  She couldn't turn into an owl all the time.

I'm eagerly awaiting my tickets to see Cream at Madison Square Garden.  I still cannot believe that I'm going to see this show in person.  I almost have to pinch myself!

The original intent was to bring out Yoda's prankster streak.  But the movie is so dark at this point that any comic relief is really out of place.
