Yes, two more episodes on BBCA -  Fragments and Exit Wounds. Lets just say that Spike (Captain John) is back and things change alot in the last episode.

Aren't we suppost to see more of Martha Jones in the first half of the new Torchwood season? Then she will return to Doctor Who during the late second half of season. In the mean time we have to deal with the awful Catherine Tate for the first half of Doctor Who.  Is David Tennant still taking a year off from Doctor Who to do Shakespeare delaying season five?

From what I have read, it was always the plan for Doctor Who to take a year off after Season 4.

Are there 13 episodes in Season 2?  I just watched episode 11 last night.  I am wondering if a rumor I heard is true if people are saying Season 3 is going to be different.

Modern Trading / TFU figures for Trade
« on: April 7, 2008, 11:52 AM »
I found an extra Imperial Evo Trooper and an extra Imperial Jump Trooper and they are both up for trade. I need helping find the last few figures before our spring hiatus since Hasbro will only be pushing Indiana Jones. I need in order of priority:

Battle Damaged Darth Vader from TFU
Either Legends figure that has the black coin, does not matter which figure, just really need the coin
Tri Droid from '08 Wave 1

Let me know if you are interested.

Is it just me, or does it seem that Rebelscums efforts get more lame each year?  A podcast in Spanish with a few English words thrown in?  Sad.

Remember the one before either C2 or C3 when they had an article about the first 12 vintage figures being repacked and randomly inserted in the gift bags?  That one at least made me think for a bit until I realized it was April 1.

If I had $4 million just lying around I'd be tempted to have bid on it!  It's an incredible looking book, it's for a good cause, but not only that, I want to read the stories!


I think JKR will eventually release this book in the same manner as the Beast and Quiddich books at some point.  She did retain publishing rights to the material.

I would think the show would be back.  It did pretty solidly in the ratings for a Fox show.

I must say I was a bit shocked by the ending of the Reset episode.  I can't wait to see what happens this week.

I think chase figures will turn people off from this line.  Who wants to spend $450 for a case to be stuck with three figures.  I'm sure you can sell the extra chase figure, but where are you going to find someone to buy the three regular figures?

Another e-mail from Sideshow:

At this time, we would like to inform you that this item is estimated to arrive into our warehouse within approximately the next 3-5 days.

Sweet!  8)

Just as another one arrives, a new one goes up for preorder.  It seems strange that we'll only have Luke, Han, Praji and Clone Kenobi on preorder after this one shows up...I wonder what else Sideshow has in store for us the rest of the year.

However, the guy with the flush should have gone all in after the flop.

It may, but you saw what slow playing got him.  The winning hand needed cards on both the turn and the river to beat him.  On these on line sites it seems that winning hands get cracked all the time like that, regardless of how you play it.  I would say 75% of the time I have had pocket Kings, and Ace would come out on the flop.

Just curious, but wouldn't that pretty much scare everyone off their hands unless they had an ace?

The set has been sold.

That's pretty amazing and exciting poker there!  4 of a kind on the river to win!

Help me on this:  Announcers/poker players are always talking about "outs".  In this scenario, how many outs did you have?  You could have won only if you got a full house or 4 of a kind.  That's assuming that he wouldn't be able to improve his hand on the river, and it doesn't look like he can.  So 4 of a kind is 1 K, and full is 3 8s, 3 As, and 3 Qs.  I'm thinking out loud by writing - 10 outs.  Am I missing anything?  Then they'll translate that to a possible winning % - 10 cards out of 52, so about 20% chance?  Close?

That is correct.  Its good to see that Pokerstars isn't the only site with bad beats on the river.   However, the guy with the flush should have gone all in after the flop.

Only 20 or so Stormtroopers.  But I seriously doubt that guy has paid over $200,000 for his collection.  If he has, I think he's gotten ripped off somewhere.  I've spent a lot of scratch in the last 12 years but nowhere near that much.  And I have a LOT of stuff (for good or bad).


That was my first question while the heck does he get to $200K?  ST armor could be around $1500.  A complete set of vintage figures can be found on ebay for around the same.  The CNN clip showed that he had an icons saber.  I saw mostly Hasbro and Legos in his basement with a few GG statues.  I have a large quantity of MR stuff, not everything, but pretty close along with all the 3 3/4" and 12" Hasbro, all the Legos, about a dozen or so GG busts, and all the Sideshow 12" and a ton of books and I haven't even spent half that amount according to my spreadsheet.  I think he has over estimated his spending.

$5 for shipping one figure is about the going rate, if the shipper uses priority mail.  The minimum priority mail is about $4.55 and delivery confirmation is $0.70 for a total of $5.25.  Also, etailers might get bulk rates, but I know NewForce ships cases via UPS for around $8 to $10.  Usually, their cost plus shipping is the same price as the just the cost for most other etailers.

The one thing that surprises me about ebay not cracking down on shipping is that there are so many auctions now that hurt ebay.  I see a lot of $1 Buy it Now auctions with $100 shipping.  Ebay only makes money on the listing and a percentage of the $1 instead of percentage on the $100.  I would think they would crack down on stuff like that at least.
