I am itching for Phantom Menace vintage-style cardbacks.  And I doubt they'd consider doing a Kitster/Wald two-pack, so I broke them up this time.

  1. Holographic Darth Sidious (upgrade)
  2. Ben Quadrineros
  3. Kitster
  4. Wald
  5. Sio Bibble (upgrade)
  6. Jira
  7. Bib Fortuna
  8. Greedo
  9. female Naboo pilot
10. handmaiden repack

Yeah, I'm terribly disappointed that Sommers is gone.  The GI Joe movie was just like the Sunbow cartoon, and it moved at a nice pace.  Too bad that the cast will probably change, but with any luck they won't do another damn origin story.  I am so tired of franchise origin stories.

This new series is charming.  I like that Dr. Mindbender is some punk kid, and I like how young everybody is. 

I'm guessing that Lady Jaye & Flint eventually become part of the Renegade group; maybe at the end of this season? 

Not sure how long they can sustain this whole A-Team theme, what with the whole show being an arc and not particularly standalone.

Wow, I'm not used to seeing her with blonde hair.

When are they going to get to Lobot, that's what I want to know.

I'm almost certain the reason Hasbro balked at the Twilight was because of the association with the super-popular vampire movies.  Perhaps in a few years when the movies are all done and gone we'll get that vehicle.

Call me delusional, but I think he's decided to halt development of a live-action tv show to work on a sequel trilogy instead.  I have fanaties of him announcing this at Celebration V.

I'll be there, not that any of you know who I am or anything.  I will be attending the Yakface/SWAN party, and I might also catch a showing of The Expendables on Friday.

Just ignore the grumpy old-timers, of course you wouldn't know about the vintage toys.  What I think is neat is that with each iteration I (and others) think "eh, I don't need a new Gam, the one I have is fine and probably couldn't be improved upon anyways.  And then wham-pow!  Hasbro knocks it out of the park with an impossibly good-looking figure, wayyy better than the old "just fine" stuff.

Hasbro is just screwing with everyone on pricing anymore. Typically a manufacturer doesn't compete directly with it's customers. In this case not only have I seen these instock on the Hasbro site but they were $7.99ea. Maybe that's changed a little since I haven't checked back today but when I did they were in stock so apparently only Hasbro wants to be able to sell these prior to 8/6/10? That's pretty shoddy.

I think that this has more to do with the street date confusion than anything.  And TRU regularly marks their stuff up a little higher than everybody else, so no surprise there.

[quote author = Dressel Rebel]Well maybe if my TRU could have sold some of those 500 Willrow Hoods forming a solid wall of pegwarmer bricks grouted with dust,[/quote]

That's craziness.  I've only seen about three ICMGs total, in all the TRUs within 30 miles of me.  Is it possible that most other TRUs were suffering from other, earlier figures pegwarming, and that all of the one wave ended up going from the distribution centers to your TRU?

Wal-Mart Exclusive?  Jabba + Dias + Oola minimum package contents?  $65.99 - at the low end.

I am sorry if I sound like a jerk but on a side note I really laughed my arse off with some of the choices appearing here: The Statue, the British Padawan even Padmes Mom and Dad!!

I missed this a while back, but I *need* Padme's mom and dad so I can make the funeral procession diorama.
