The TURBO TANK features electronic sounds, running lights, phrases from the animation, a hidden, launchable speeder bike and a removable command center."

AWESOME.  I'm getting more and more jazzed for this thing.

It looks like JediJman is really stretching his literary bounderies. I hope he can work his way into the classics like Green Eggs and Ham.

We're already past Green Eggs & Ham, though that is an old favorite.  Unfortunately my reading is pretty much just limited to what we read the kids these days.   :-\

I wouldn't bet on that!

I didn't say for how long it cleared up, whatsyername.

The plot is so predictable.

Oh that's not even bad....but I am going there now.

When the red lights and engine start up she gets bug eyed  :o and cries out "It's working!"  No one else is allowed to touch it (except Daddy)

Ha!  Nicely done, Mike.   At first I thought you made that quote up, but my senility cleared up after reading a few times.   :-\

I'm not buying time hopping baby Charlie, but I WAS thinking...what if Miles is Candle.  Not Candle's son...Candle.  Go back and watch the filming of the orientation tapes...same attitude.

The only problem there is that Candle talks with more of an accent than Miles.  I don't buy that it's the same guy and he developed more of an Asian accent as he got older.  It's easier to stomach that the baby should have just looked more Asian IMO.

Well, if Kohl's had some current stock (like Wave 5) in, they'd have a pretty good deal (BOGO free, I think... Even BOGO 1/2 price would be almost a steal at Target's rates!)

Kohls is BOGO this week?

Wow do I hate all of these.  I'm so glad Transformers is turning out this way - that's a line I could easily have been sucked into if there was a single robot form I liked.

I love the idea.  I'm already starting to forget some of the individual stories from NJO, so this will be a great way to relive a terrific era of the EU.  I'm looking forward to seeing artist renditions of Vong ships and weapons along with some of my favorite jeedai (like Ganner!).

Well Tibetan monks are suppost to be able to leave their body via mediation. Maybe Locke learns to do the same thing?

I'm not saying it's not possible - I just think that's a big wrench to throw in the mix on top of everything else and pretty difficult to cover in the time they have left.  If he had started out as a tibetan monk, then maybe you'd have something there. 

My theory is that Locke isn't dead when we see him in the casket.  Nobody came to see the body except Jack and Ben, so I think Ben set this up to jerk Jack out of his funk.  Think about the darts that Sayid took - he looked just about dead, but was really just heavily sedated, so maybe Ben's been hit with the same stuff.  It's not like Jack took his pulse.  I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the Oceanic 6 hop on a boat along with Desmond and find Ben alive and well on board.

Just some additional food for thought - Locke is posing as Jeremy Bentham.  The real Bentham's dead body was put on display with a wax head, so could be something similar going on here.  Maybe Locke never even leaves the island - Ben just pulls together a wax replica in a coffin to get his plan rolling.

Awesome pics - thanks for sharing!  Green Arrow is a must have out of that lot - wow!

I do not get the massive inflation on vehicles. It would seem the AT-TE and BMF justified raising the price of larger vehicles in retailers eyes. This is will bend over for since it's OTC but man more than 30 than the TRU Dagobah one is getting out of hand.

Its really not that different from the basic figures on a percentage basis is it?  From $7 at Christmas to $9 at some Target stores - I heard today that someone found basic figs for almost $9 even at a Wal-Mart.  This isn't about a cost of goods increase - this is about manufacturers having no idea what to do with price these days.  Obvioiusly, they're in it to make profit, so I think they're testing the waters.  If things don't sell, they can always take the price back down, just like they've done with every single price increase over the last ten years.  Time may prove me wrong, but this should be simple Econ 101.  If demand stays high, they can continue to charge what they want.  If surplus of suply grows, prices will come back down.   :-\
