Yep, nice interview.  I must confess though, it doesn't compare to having one of your rants corrected in an open thread though.  Ahem.  

I guess like everyone else my main concern is with the Fett.  Of course there are no guarantees with anything, but is production of the figure being adjusted to suit demand?  By corollary, is there a set number produced and what is not sold at conventions is what becomes available at the fan club?  In other words, will I be spending 4 hours starting at 2 am trying to refresh the page like I did with toyfare Vader? ;)

Regardless, appreciate the participation in a site like this.  Cheers.

Undergrad: University of Dayton:  B.S. Mathematics & Physics. Yeah, 2003 Atlantic-10 Basketball Champs baby! :)

Grad: University of Colorado-Boulder: M.S. Applied Mathematics and slaving away towards the PhD currently  :-\

Well, I'm impressed.  At least it was this :-\ instead of this :'(

MS and PhD rolled together or separate?

Hmm, overtime.  Who does that favor?  I know the Ducks have been exceptionally good, but is Brodeur's experience more important?

And didn't somebody once suggest that games would be OT with the winning score being 1-0? ;)

Nicklab, same goes for you.  I can't necessarily promise anything with respect to variants, but if there are just a few regs you need, I'll happily help you out C&S.

Where are you Spuffy?  I'll check a couple of the local stores.  I doubt he's around, but if he is I'll let you know what they're asking.  Sometimes you get lucky.  I managed to score my McFarlane repaint Cujo (only NM though) for $75 Cdn at a retailer when it was going for over $100 US on ebay.  At the time $100 US was around $150 or so Cdn, so you can imagine how happy I was.  Just missed a repaint Roy at the same store for the same price too :o

Sith Lord Cosmo, LMK when you're dumping your variants I may be interested.  Given I have around 500 posts over at Spawn, I understand how that world works, so I'm sure we can come to an agreement ;)

I'm sort of in the same boat, though I'll probably be unloading my regs and variants of the skaters while keeping all the goalies.  I'll keep a few skaters that I really like and that's about it.  It's your Avs Bourque I'm more interested in than anything else.  

If you need help with NHL5, LMK.  I can do the regs for cost and shipping easy enough.  You'd be #3 on the list for the variants and I also need to trade some for a black Vick and a couple of purple Culpeppers ::) :o  I have two cases of NHL5 on order (well, depends if the retailer - McToys.ca - gets shorted on his order).  Only variants I'll probably keep are Roy, Cloutier and Sakic.  Possibly a Messier or Hossa.  Oh wait, that's most of them 8)  Still, I usually find around 5 at retail, so as long as the orders are the same as they usually are, I should be able to help a bit.

WEll, there you go.  Are the cardbacks going to be different, or will they have switched to the clone wars by then?  Presumably all the new version.

Dang Scott, some of those figures look Canadian.  YOu must have been desperate (or generous).  

Spuffy,
do you have all of the Buffy figures?  I thought about them, but being in Canuckada, distribution has been worse than awful.  TRU brought in the first series then nada.  Oh wait, that sounds like everything. ::)

Good old University of Manitoba (go to Scott's alma mater and drive 8 hours north :o).  

Bachelor of Science - Zoology major, botany and statistics minors

Bachelor of Science in Agriculture - Entomology major

Master of Science - Entomology Major.

Currently mulling a PhD offer from Kansas.  Trying to work it with minimal time away from work and paid at that.  Like you Matt, I do not enjoy a decreased income.  I did my time as the poverty stricken student.  Never again.

Yep, I'd agree with that assessment.  Too bad Brodeur will be standing on his head tonight.   :-*

Oh sure, when I'm looking for a Pierce you can't find one (truly an unlikely story - can't find a Celtic figure in La La land).  But when Minnesota boy wants a baseball fig, you find it lickety split.  Sure, fine, I get it.  Staff first :-* ;D

Sith Lord Cosmo, what do you collect in this line?

SLC, you have the same name at sportspicksarena and spawn?  I'm not there all that much, but I don't remember seeing the same username.  What McFarlane do you collect?  There's a thread around here somewhere...

Not sure about the sponsors of this site, but my regular online retailer has the following available today:

Collection 1, Wave 16
4 each of Anakin Skywalker Pilot,Scout Clone Trooper,Yoda w/ Hover Chair. ETA is June/July 2003.

Collection 2, Wave 17
(2) Waitress Droid, (2) Night Club Alien, (2)Darth Sidious, (1) Luke Skywalker, (1)Darth Vader, (1) Wat Tambor, (1) Colman Trebor, (1) Ashla and Jempa, (1)Archive Droid. Release is August 2003.

If anyone knows of details or pics of the figs, help would be appreciated.  I grabbed wave 17 as it should be easy to unload some of those duplicates.  

Wave 16 is surprising to me.  Was the Yoda/chair figure that hard to find that it needs to be four to a case?  And Anakin pilot?  Huh?  Clone Wars?  Sorry, I know I should remember this, but I don't.  I'd be happy to have one Yoda, one Anakin and the four scout clones, but not so keen on trying to unload the remainders.  Anyone interested in splitting (Scott?)
