But how many of these will sell?  

I just finished reading the 'what killed the deluxe' thread, come in here and go, hmm, Deluxe Ackbar?  Not bloody likely I'd buy it and I buy damn near everything.  

The mains would sell - 3PO, R2, Chewie.  Lando's a stretch, IMO but could be good.  Stormie's could work as could Clonetroopers.  Any imperial with a helmet should sell well, so the DSG, Tie pilot, AT_AT driver (with cockpit?) would probably do well.  But so many of these guys don't lend themselves to either the sexy aspect (Leia, Padme) or the aggressive aspect (all the male characters).  Perhaps some of the female Jedi would lend themselves to unleashed figures, but how would they sell.

Actually, how is the line in general selling?  They are quite nice, but the price point is higher than comparable McFarlane figs (due nod to Carrie for pointing out the comparison).  It's tough for me to comment, as I've only ever seen Jango and Maul at retail.  Padme, Anakin and Vader I had through trades, but arrived here on clearance and the most recent 4 have never been seen in Canuckada, to the best of my knowledge (outside of comic shops).

As another astromech freak, I can relate.  But I was very fortunate, I only had to trade to current Saga figs to get the droid.  It wasn't minty fresh, but pretty good shape and that's quite a bargain for the droid alone.  

The Starship would be cool to own, but I missed the clearance sale.  It weighs a ton and the shipping alone would cost a fair bit.

Hey, you got a blue and yellow Wolverine, what more do you want?   ;)

I think this version of Nightcrawler is nicer though than teh comic series.  Blue white and red was not that pretty really.  Still haven't picked up any of these yet.  Thinking about a new widescreen TV, so lots of toys would have to be passed up on.

Matt.  Question time.

Do you think the NBA really actually calls all the fouls?  Ever?  In any game?  Remember, I'm old enough to recall when basketball was a non-contact sport.  It looks more and more like a rugby scrum all the time.  

By the same token, 3 in the key; travel ball?  This is why I prefer college, they actually play by the rules of a game called basketball, rather than an entertainment program known as the NBA.  

Don't worry though, the calls will be reversed when the series shifts out west.

Hey Dale, you listen to that CD or just drool on the booklet? ;)

It's just begging to be said guns don't kill people, people kill people.  I used to like to laugh at the US as the land where personal responsibility had no place.  Until Canada started doing the same.  

I despise Walmart and basically only shop there prior to 8 AM.  No other Canadian retailer carries a decently priced (remember, we pay $12.99 plus 14% for Marvel Legends) toys with a marginal selection.  Prices at TRU suck and their selection is worse (this is a store that still has Homer Wave 1 on the pegs).  

I buy toys there, and that's about it (well, maybe toilet paper).  I'll get my Maxim at 7-11.

Trivial cross border fact.  

US Mountain Dew has highest amount of caffeine of any soda/pop/coke.  No wonder y'all like it so much.

Canadian Mountain Dew has zero caffeine.

Actually, the ducks play hideously boring, trapping hockey that sucks the life and joy out of the game.  It wins, but it's tantamount to blasphemy.  

As regards kicking or knocking the puck out of the air, well, kicking is a no-no, but it depends on whether there was forward motion of the foot or simply a deflection off the foot/skate.  Redirecting with the stick in the air is allowed, so long as the contact with the stick is not above the waist.  Tough call there and other goals in the playoffs of questionable nature have been allowed.  One of the OT goals in the first round was allowed that was clearly a high stick.

Oh yeah, if you are watching US based hockey announcers, I'd have very little faith in their opinions.  No offence, but they tend to be transplanted baseball guys that really don't understand the game very well (unless perhaps they are out of the traditional hockey grounds - MInnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan).
