Revenge of the Sith / Re: "Evolutions" assortment...
« on: August 14, 2005, 09:36 PM »
I actually saw one of these in person yesterday at a dealer shop. But don't get excited yet. The guy who rents the case was stalking figures and such, so I asked him where he found it. He claims he has a Hasbro connection who floats him a few items now and then (I think he said rejected samples.) He also had the Rebel vs Empire and separatists 5-packs.

A few of the asian e-tailers have actually started to get the Clone Evo sets in stock (that's how RS and GH got their samples for the photos they did) - don't get too excited, they are asking $50 each!   :o

Star Wars: Evolutions Clone Trooper to Storm Trooper 3 Pack

It could be true that he got them early from an overseas source...

Another great deal with Dale!   :)

I sent him some figures, he sent me some money - everyone wins!


Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Jedi Council sets 3 & 4

Just like the Naboo set I just posted on, I picked up one of these from Amazon!

Star Wars: 3.75 Jedi Council Scene Plo, Eeth, Obi-Wan = $7.50

I was ordering some stuff anyway and I couldn't resist some decent Jedi Custom Fodder for $2.50 per figure!

Anyone still need this thing?

Star Wars Naboo Final Conflict 4-Pack - $10

I was ordering some stuff from and I noticed it's still in stock over there for only $10, so I added one to my cart.

$10 is a pretty good deal for a new Kaduu, the Ep1 Royal Guard, Gungan Warrior, and a Battle Droid.  3 Army Builders for $10 is a pretty good deal!   ;)

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Comic Book Thread
« on: August 12, 2005, 02:27 PM »
I picked up a few comics this week, and decided to pick up an issue (the latest) of Nightwing to see what it was like.  I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but thumbing through it doesn't look too bad. 

The Nightwing book is headed in a really odd direction at the moment.

After a really bad decision (or rather a moment of in-action to prevent something), Dick's life took a very strange turn.  This, coupled with the recent War Game cross-over in the Bat-Books have taken Nightwing down a very strange road.  I'm still not sure where they are taking him.

His fall into crime and now team-up with Deathstroke ahve me going, "huh?"  Hopefully there is a payoff at the end of this story, I'd hate to see Dick become yet another "Good Guy fallen to the Bad Guys until he's saved" shtick.


Revenge of the Sith / TRU Attack on Hoth Battle Pack

Just an FYI, but Amazon moved up the release date for the TRU Hoth 5-pack.  They now say it will be in-stock September 5th...

TRU Exclusive Star Wars 5pc Imperial force Hoth Battle Set

Now, don't hold your breath because these dates have been wrong plenty of times before, just thought I'd let you all know in case anyone was champing at the bit to pick up this exclusive box of rehashes.   :P

Other Collectibles / Re: Lava Lamps
« on: August 12, 2005, 12:11 PM »
Beacause I love you crazy Jesses, I did a bit of digging...

Here's an e-mail I got from a rep at Idea Nuova:

Hi Jeff,

While we did distribute to a large number of retailers in April, most of the
quantities were relatively small (and I don't anticipate that they would
have much, if anything, left).  However, we did a very large program with
Target and they continue to merchandise it in most of their stores.  The
program is primarily in their outdoor section.  We did sleeping bags, beach
towels, fleece blankets, folding chairs for them.  Additionally, we
have large orders being shipped to Wal Mart in October to coincide with the
DVD launch but we currently have no product there now.

I hope this helps!

So, the bulk of what they shipped so far went to Target and what they shipped so far did not include the Lava Lamps.

I sent her a follow up e-mail and from her answer to that one, I got the distinct impression that while the Lava Lamps have not been released so far, they may however turn up as a part of the stuff they are shipping to Wal-Mart in November for the DVD.

So, for now, you're not going to find the Lava Lamp anywhere, but it could still turn up this fall (November) for the DVD.

I was planning on dumping the hats...
I'm still torn on the Cards.  I know I used to love looking at my mom and uncles old cards and seeing the old uniforms, hair and names of the 60's.  I would think my boys would too but keeping just the HOFers would be good enough.  I see no value in keeping 2000 1989 Donruss Baseball commons.  The hassel of trying to sell those anywhere is more than I want to deal with.

The idea of throwing them away though is a little disconcerting realizing how much money I sunk in to all of that crap.  It sure was fun though :P

Here's another idea if you don't mind holding on to them during the move...

Pack them up in little ziplocks of 10-12 cards and give them away at Halloween.

Maybe the little fat kids expecting candy and the anti-sports "girly" girls would hate it, but the tom-boy girls and the sporto kids would love it!

I also really dig Coke Zero, really, really dig it

I just tried one for the first time yesterday and it suprisingly does really taste like Coke.

I picked up a 12-pack of Coke Zero (C0:P) last night.  There is one can in the fridge right now waiting for me to try tonight when I get home from work...

I've been preferring Coke (classic) for at least 20 years that I can remember, or at least since the New Coke disaster.  I hate Diet Coke with a passion - the diety after-taste is just gross. 

I guess it will be an interesting experiment to see if this Coke Zero stuff tastes OK to me or not...

Old sweat stained dirty ass hats  -  Trash Them. 

I am of the opinion that you should only ever wear Baseball hats if they have Baseball team logos on them, so you never should have had football/basketball hats in the first place...

20000 Sports Cards from 1986-1992 - Hmmm.... this is a tricky one. 

If they are just commons, you'll probably never get anything good for them.  Here's what I suggest - just walk over to Maplewood Mall and start handing them out to random people shouting "It's FREE card day here at the Mall!"  Try to look a little bit crazy when you do it...

Old Star Wars magazines - see if you can donate them to a local Elementary School.

It sounds kinda silly since they are old, but Teachers LOVE stuff like this that they can use to get kids to read/participate in class.  I donated a BUNCH of my old comics/magazines to the local Elementary School where my mom works and the teachers loved it.  With the school year coming up, you should be able to find a school who will take them for a reading program.

Actually Jeff I have been eyeballing that.   ;D  My buddy has my chips since he's been playing like crazy the last few months w/ his office buddies.  I saw this on the Wings site but it says it's a pre-order scheduled for delivery in 12-15 weeks.  It says it's an Upper Deck product.  I'm totally buying it.  Just curious when it's actually due for release. 

I saw it over at Entertainment Earth with a due date of Oct/November 2005 so it should be out in time for Christmas.

And Jamie, don't you have a reaction to Paul Kariya?  At least your club finally did something...  while your club was signing him, my club was signing Andrei Zyuzin.   ::)

I mean, he's a fine defensemen and everything, but where's our free agency superstar (or at least has-been superstar)?   :'(

Great transaction with Mike!

He sent me some moolah for some Kubrick figures and payment was sent lightning fast!

Thanks again and enjoy your Kubricks!

Sure, maybe the NHL isn't on TV, but hey - the merchandising juggernaut is back in full swing!

Hey, Jason - have you picked up one of these yet?   :P

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Jedi After Episode 3?

Just an FYI Slothus,

"Nazi" is a word we take on a case-by-case issue.

If someone is using it to describe the Nazi party/regime in Germany (as Jesse has in his post) as a historical reference AND it's in good taste, that is OK.

If someone uses it as a deragotory term (ie, something like "Figure Nazi") or uses it to defame someone (ie, "don't be such a Nazi"), it WILL be edited or removed if it is brought to the staff's attention.

And that's all we have to say on that issue.

Awesome!  I was just listening to that today too!

In fact, I haven't listened to it for a while it seems...
