The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Does Hasbro replace broken figures?
« on: December 9, 2008, 01:40 PM »
No, I got a Legends clone trooper for a VTSC IG-88 (I sent the Leia back).  The price I paid for the IG-88 is irrelevant - either way you slice it, it was a defective figure.

My post was questioning what sort of value or deal you got from this circumstance.  The fact that you got the figure on clearance is relevant, as swapping a full price $10-12 IG-88 for a $6-7 Clone Trooper would still not be an acceptable deal in my opinion.

I sent mine out Friday - should be there in about a week or so I think, so well in advance of the 25th.   ;D

The Terminator Salvation site has a motion poster up online, clicky link.

I was sure that was a typo but the thing is pretty neat.

WOW.  Awesome!

Wow, it's a mess down here at the bottom.

Well, I don't think my 30 or so points are going to cut it this week.  Been a good season (in other leagues at least!).  Best of luck to those in the playoffs!

At least they have a chance at the playoffs unlike Favre & the Packers...oh wait...they got rid of him.  Weren't they like 14-2 last year???

I would equate no chance with no chance if you want to compare Packers and Vikings this year.  The purple will just whip their ten remaining fans into a heated fervor for nothing, just like they always do.  Players from both teams will be sitting out the playoffs talking about their past superbowl victories...oh wait, I guess just the Packers will be doing that.

It's pretty funny to hear squabble about whether your chances are better with Jackson or Fur-Rot.  We may have traded Favre, but I'd take A-Rod over either of those guys every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

If you truly have any faith in your team, why don't you go double or nothing with me on them even reaching the SuperBowl?  I'm from Wisconsin, so I won't have any trouble downing a second brew if you ever get back up to the cities.   ;D

Plus, if you're like me, you don't have one shorter than an hour away ;).

That close?  Lucky you.

I have no idea where the nearest K-Mart is to Dallas, but it's a long way.

There's one in Longview and one in Killeen.   ;)

I was sorely tempted by this one, but space and money constraints held me back.  I'll probably regret not getting it down the road, but those figs are just too expensive.

I would have loved to take him back to the store but they were on clearance and I snagged the last one.  Hasbro did acknowledge that the Leia figure was not a 'fair' substitute for IG-88 and I reluctantly settled for a Legends clone trooper.

Wait, so you got a free Leia and a free Clone Trooper for something you bought on clearance?

Anyone interested in this tasty nugget?  It's just taking up space in my basement, so I'd love to give it a new home if anyone wants to trade for it or but it...

Sucks to see the Vikings advance after such an awulf showing.  I hope the Bears can catch them and take the division at this point.   :P
what was so awful with that?  The Vikes pretty much dominated the 2nd half and are looking like a surefire playoff team.  Stop the run and run the ball  = playoff success

Yeah, "dominating" with nothing but the run on a winless team in what may be the worst division in the NFL.  A 20-16 victory over the hapless Lions is not very convincing IMO.  If the Refs hadn't arbitrarily reversed that Calvin Johnson catch in the 4th quarter, the vikes would have been fighting for a tie at best and could easily have been the first team to lose to the silver and baby blue.  I give them no chance to advance in the playoffs, especially if the Williams Wall is on suspension.

Just FYI that the 3packs of little DC Infinity figures are marked down to $13 at Target this week.  Still not a great deal for 3 figs, but way better than the $17 regular price.

Should be lower, but I'll guess the prices will be about the same as you were paying for ML in the early days.  Granted things have changed quite a bit, but the price being the same would be hard to take. 

And yeah, I'll admit to being tempted as I love me some Marvel.  But I'd guess I have maybe 100+ in the larger scale and if I could get anything for them, I'd happily part with them for the smaller scale, but it's not worth the effort.  We're seeing so little in the way of stores stocking stuff up here.  The FFF wave did actually show up just this week, but not all of them.  And they are now at $19.99 per (reasonable relative to the US pricepoint, but not reasonable relative to what I want - though actually seeing that FFF head up close -  :o) so not going to happen.  I did get to see the She-Hulk figure from that wave too and I was more impressed than I expected to be. 

$20 a figure?  Even in Canadian money that's ridiculous.  My Target has lowered the price of Legends down to $9.99 instead of $14.99.  I picked up a Spiral if anyone is looking for a Red Hulk head.

Congratulations Chris!  Now get ready to go bald worrying about a daughter the rest of your life. :P

Seriously - my daughter is already pretending to talk to boys on her play telephone at the ripe age of 2.  Nevertheless, congratulations on the new ball of Joy Chris!

The Legacy Collection / Re: Legacy Collection Comic Packs
« on: December 4, 2008, 09:42 PM »

Wave 4
1x Legacy #2 with Darth Talon and Cade Skywalker
1x Shadows of the Empire #5 with Princess Leia and Prince Xizor
1x Heir to the Empire #1 with Grand Admiral Thrawn and Talon Karrde
1x Infinities ROTJ #3/4 with Darth Vader (White) and Princess Leia (Sniper)
2x Dark Empire II #1 with Clone Emperor and Luke Skywalker
2x Republic #82 with Commander Faie and Quinlan Vos

I found this case at Toys R Us this evening.  Only one Clone Emperor left, but that is definitely a sweet pack!  My only complaint is a cloth robe for Emperor and a plastic robe for Luke - looks silly to me in the same package.  They should have stuck with one or the other for both.  The Vos set is nice too.  I don't like the deco on Faie, but Vos is well detailed (straight legs though).   ::)
