But I have to wonder after reading the latest issue of Dark Horse's Dark Times if they'll do a repainted version in a grey/Imperial color scheme.

Let's hope that they decide to go that route and not the rainbow route that they did with the Jedi Starfighters.

Snow expected in the 4-12 inch range with 20-25 mph winds right now in Chicago.  Oh how I love the Midwest in winter...

That price makes it much more reasonable to get all 6 of these, but I have to admit that I was getting them regardless of price.  Now I'll be able to afford a few more $6.99 basic figures  ::)

I've let my 2 and 3 year old watch TPM and ANH numerous times and they really like them both.  They were a little scared at times during AOTC, so I've only played that one once.  They have no idea about timelines at this age, so I'm ok with not showing them in order at this point in time.  They are mostly interested in the action and who has/doesn't have a lightsaber.  They love the pod race and the lightsaber fighting in TPM. I think that your 4 year old will enjoy the movie, so my recommendation is to start there.

I personally won't be letting them watch ROTS until they are at least 7-8 and even then, I'll probably still skip the scenes where Palpy and Anakin are both getting burned to a crisp.  Not sure about the Jedi purge scenes either right now...

I was surprised at how bad the Bears D ended up being. I really thought they'd keep the Colts in better check, maybe even sack a few times. I'm thinking the Bears might need a new QB.

I think that the telling factor of why the Bears D performed as bad as they did was when they showed the total Indy plays at 64 and the total Bears plays at 24...  When your defense is on the field for that long, you can't expect them to do very well, especially late.  I agree though, I thought that they were going to have a much easier time stopping the run than they did.  I'm looking forward to next year when they get Tommy Harris and Mike Brown back.  They also need to make sure that they keep Briggs next to Urlacher for a long time...

As far as Rex is concerned, I take him for what he 'technically' was this season, a rookie quarterback with a lot more to learn.  This was his first full season at the helm and he was able to help get them to the Superbowl.  If he can work on his weaknesses in the off-season and work with Ron Turner to develop a more diverse offensive attack, I think that they will be in good shape again next year.

Congrats to the Colts, and Tony Dungee.  It's been a long time coming.

My understanding is that the rule has always been that you can count whatever you want to count.

That pretty much sums it up.  Include whatever you feel belongs in your tally.

Sounds good, thanks for the input.  That brings me up to $245 for the year.  I had no idea I could spend that much in such a short time.

Actual temperature near the Illinois Wisconsin border was -2oF when I was on my way to Target an hour ago.  It's really too bad they aren't playing the Super Bowl in Soldier Field tomorrow...  I'd like to see the 'Domers' deal with sub zero weather during the game.

Just a general question as I haven't done this before and I couldn't find this 'rule' in the previous challenges.  Are the novels (Allegiance, Path to Destruction) and coffee table books (SW Chronicles, etc)exempt from this?  I know that I can't count comics and tpb's, but I just want to make sure I don't miss anything.  Thanks.

Got the three of these that I wanted.  Thanks to my relative down in Texas for picking them up for me!  Can't wait for her to ship them to me.

Got the ones I was looking for today.  Or I should say that my relative in Texas found these today at their local WM and are shipping them to me tomorrow.  Can't wait to get them!

I'm rooting for the Bears all the way but their output will really depend on which Rex shows up.  I'm praying that it's 'Don't do anything that will hurt the team' Rex.  If he shows up then I think that the Bears have a better chance than most people are giving them.

I would also love to see 'Peanut' Tillman run back a bad Peyton throw, and not to mention Hester rip up a return or two.

In the end I think that it's going to be a really good game, and if the Colts do end up winning, at least we won't have to hear every media outlet talking about how Manning can't win the big game...  Enough already!

I just ordered the Star Wars Shop exclusive hard cover edition of Legacy Volume 1 - Broken.  The cover has Darth Talon and is limited to 1500 copies.  Here's the link for anyone interested:

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 2007 Rumors... Oh my!
« on: January 31, 2007, 04:14 PM »
I've never heard of the 'Force Unleashed' line of figures before, has anyone else?

The assumption right now is that Force Unleashed is the working title of the big new SW Video Game that is coming this Fall... the game is the one that has been teasing with their Secrets of Star Wars 07 posts they had on the site in fall/winter 06.

The current rumor is that much like Shadows of the Empire, we're going to get a huge media push to support the Video Game.  We'll see things like a comic series from Dark Horse, a book or two, and then the line of figures based on the game that you see here. 

Thanks Jeff, I do remember the discussion on this now.

I also just scored a Mace FX for $65 shipped via ebay!

Strike that.  The guy sent me an open box Mace FX instead of a 'new in box, never opened' Mace FX like he had advertised in the auction.  As a result, I got him to refund me $35, thus getting this FX saber for only $30!!!  This is now the second FX saber I've gotten for only $30!
