Wow, they sprung this preorder on us quickly.  I was just thinking yesterday with the Mechno chair, Leia Boushh and Asajj all currently shipping on shipping soon, that we were getting low on preorders again.

So when do we find out that Voldemort was really Harry's father and Hermione was his sister?

Actually, it turns out that Harry and Voldemort were related, albeit distantly.  If you believe Marvolo Gaunt.  Gaunt claimed that the Gaunt's were decended from the family who made the Deathly Hallows, and Dumbledore said that Harry was decended from the youngest brother who made the cloak.

A pretty big loose end, unless I missed something in my reading, is that we never found out who else was at the Potter's house or in Godric's Hollow when Voldemort tried to kill Harry.

Of course, there was also Andrew Johnson and Lyndon Johnson, his son; and perhaps the most famous presidential family of all--the Roosevelts--from which two of our best presidents came:  Teddy and his little boy, Frank.

I hope you are joking...Andrew Johnson was dead before LBJ was born and Teddy and FDR were only distant cousins.  FDR did marry Teddy's niece (who was also his distant cousin).

For an extra fee, they will double box the figures for you.  That is what I did after I got a crushed box on my Anakin figure.  They will send you a new box, but it comes unfolded.  You have to put the new box inside the packing box to get it to keep its shape.

Hmm, I wonder why they chose another Luke for the next figure.

Yes, we all know that GG has sucked in the past year or so, but I am tired of hearing this silly "east coast" theory in regards to winners.  I live in Delaware and have only won 1 of 7 raffles that I have entered.  Another bit of knowledge...the majority of the population lives on either the east or west coast.  That can help account for the numbers.  At the present time, we do not know the number of members or their locations, so to say only the north eastern states can win the raffle is a little ridiculous.  Why "rig" the raffle for those people?

So, is this guy upset because Hasbro has made a Darth Malak figure?  It is clear the person is upset at Hasbro, but there is no reason to why the person is upset.  They seem to think Hasbro's one and only purpose is destroy their life.

MR has been given permission to make both the Ep. I FX Kenboi and a FX Dooku.  If they can get it finished by years end, then we will get them.  I have seen picks of a Dooku prototype as well as the Kenobi one.

Should be fun today about 12 PM EST.  I wonder if that third server will make a big difference.

I am happy with my copy that I believe is labeled 1,000,000 or so.  I wouldn't pay that much for something is just #6 and really not that rare.

The Mara Jade saber is up for order today for CS members.  $300 shipped and it is a signature edition limited to 750.

Got my shipping notice as well. Should be here soon.

Ditto!  Now I just need to remember to order my Ben Kenobi tomorrow!


My notice came in as well saying he will be on my doorstep on Tuesday.  I guess it will a push for the week, one item off the preorder list and one put back on with the Kenobi this afternoon.

I winded up signing up earlier today to. The only thing is when I went to purchase the CIV exclusives (Scaled Medal Of Yavin & Wedge Helmet) it came uup as it's listed prices and not 10% like the other products on my product page.

I noticed that this morning as well, and e-mailed Master Replicas about right after I placed my order, inquiring as to my missing $5.50 discount on the Wedge helmet (the Stormtrooper helmet got reduced, however).  Haven't heard back from them yet, but I'll let you know what they have to say when I do.  I trust I'll be getting an adjustment to my order, since CS members are supposed to automatically receive the "10% discount on ALL items"...

I don't believe MR does discounts on exclusive items.  The Gree helmet was regular price for CS members.

I believe the V2 Luke saber is the saber that we see for the majority of ROTJ.  I believe it is one of the stunt sabers with the blade part removed or sawed off.  I'm sure there must be some suttle differences since MR is making a full size one this year.

The CS kit is listed as in stock, so you can still grab one for the Qui Gon saber.  I just got mine yesterday and it looks great.  Sad to see that this will probably be the last one.

I'm on page 6 of my Star Destroyer and I've got 4 dark grey "triangle" pieces facing right and 2 dark grey facing left....I can't borrow from any of the other color fields as I'll face the same problem down the road, so what do you do in this situation??  I bought this thing on clearance at Target so I can't exactly exchange it as they're sold out.

You can contact Lego and tell them that your set was missing pieces and they will send them to you free of charge.  I did this with the Death Star II since I was missing a piece or two and several pages from the instruction booklet.  At the same time, I got a piece for my Mustafar Duel set and the Hailfire Droid set, so age of the set didn't matter either.
