Saga Collection '06 / Re: Star Tours Mickey/Yoda 2-pack

Yeah, well RS has a history of being wrong.

I personally don't believe anything I hear from a stock-boy/girl or "cast member" as they like to be called.  We heard the same rumors about the regular star tours figures and other things that eventually appeared at DisneyLand even though they were "DisneyWorld Exclusives."

I'll just let things run their course and it won't surprise me when they do show up in DL too...

That's news to me, when did they announce the blue 501st clones as part of the regular carded line?

SDCC 2005:

III-65 Tactical Ops Trooper

He's a repaint of the #41 Clone...

Yet another great deal with my favorite Star Wars junkie from Saskachewan!

Once again I sent him some figures, he gave me some money, and everything went smoothly as always!   :)

Flyers have signed Forsberg.  They are now over the cap.  Rumor is JR is heading to LA.


Anything that makes Colorado weaker is OK in my book! 

Colorado minus Roy?  minus Foote?  minus Forsberg?

That equals good news for the rest of us in the division... if only Vancouver would have lost Naslund!   ;)

Sorry Brent, Grievous is as far as I'm going on this stuff. Spent too much myself. :-\


I didn't know you bought yourself a Grievous too, I thought you just ordered the one for me...  :P

Kubricks / Series 5
« on: August 3, 2005, 04:50 PM »
Got my case of Series 4 Kubricks from Jeff a couple days ago, but unfortunately, no chase Vader.  So that means the other two guys that he's giving the other two cases to now have a 50/50 shot at it.  Who were those 2 lucky fellas again, Jeff?

I don't know if I've mentioned it in here yet, but yes I bought a second Master Case of Series 4 off eBay a week or so ago.  (I'm a glutton for punishment I guess ::)).  I snagged the box with the Stormie Twins from the case for myself (2x Stormtrooper Luke), and I then shuffled up the other three boxes.

The first box went to Matt - no Chase Vader

The second box is still sitting here, waiting to be delivered to a local guy.

The third box was earmarked for JesseVader08 but when he passed on it, I offered it up to my brother instead who pulled the Chase Vader (I just got off the phone with him).

So, that brings my total Kubrick Series 4 expenditure so far to:

$70 - Set of 8 (basic 6 plus 1x extra Vader and Chase Vader)
$65 - Stormtrooper Luke
$57 - Stormtrooper Han #1
$70 - Stormtrooper Han #2 (accidental duplicate order  :-[)
$103 - Box of 12 (4x Vader; 2x Stormtrooper & Stormtrooper Luke; 1x Hoth Han, Bespin Luke, Emperor, & Nien Nunb)

$365 Total, which looks something like this:

6x Darth Vader
3x Stormtrooper
2x Emperor Palpatine
2x Han Solo (Hoth Gear)
2x Luke Skywalker (Bespin Gear)
2x Nien Numb
1x Darth Vader (Dagobah) - CHASE
3x Stormtrooper Luke - CHASE
2x Stormtrooper Han - CHASE

From the above total, I’ve got 12 extras that I'm selling:

1x Set of 6 - $60 (sold to local MN collector)
3x Darth Vader - $21 ($7 each)
1x Stormtrooper Luke - $65 (which is the price I paid for Luke on eBay)
1x Stormtrooper Luke - $57 (which is the price I paid for Han #1) (sold)
1x Stormtrooper Han - $70 (which is the price I paid for Han #2)

If my plan works (and they rarely ever work as well as I envision them working), the final cost for my full set of Series 4 (plus 1 extra Vader and 1 extra Stormtrooper) will be reduced from the $192 it was last week down to $92...  and that is much more palatable for 11 little plastic men.

Of course, I've had to put in a bunch of work and cash to get to this point - over $850 on 8 boxes of 12 (the first "screwed up" master case and the second "real" master case) - but I hope it will all pay off in the end.  :-\

Planning on picking this one up Jeff (or maybe you already have it and I missed it in your pics above)? 

Not quite sure yet...  My GL focus tends to go more towards the Silver Age and Hal Jordan stuff.  I've got a few Kyle things and a few Golden Age Alan Scott things, but the majority of what I have is from the Silver Age GLCorps stuff.

I haven't totally crossed that figure off my list though... maybe if I can find one cheap I'd grab him.   ;)

I've never used Amazon for DC Direct pre-orders, but I have used them to buy things once they are in stock.  It's always worked out pretty well for me that way and you don't have the hassel of the pre-order.

That's not a mullet :(

How is this one?  Mullet-y enough?

Count me in. :)

Without a HUGE turn-around in offense and a few killer games from Santana and BRadke, we are in a lot of trouble to even get a WC berth since Oakland and the Yankees are finally playing killer ball.  :-\

Case in point:

   A fantastic outing by Santana
+ a horrible offensive output against something called "Joe Blandon"  ::)
= yet another 1-run loss to a good team

I give up.  Let's just call it $10 K and leave it at that ::)


I'm giving up the monthly updates and we'll just see at the end of the year how bad I blew out my budget.

I know it's going to be bad because Kubrick Series 4 = $192 and I know I bought more stuff in July than that...

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


I don't really like the artificial sweetners in Diet Coke, and C2 was awfu (if I wanted to mix Diet Coke and Coke, I'd do it myself :-X). 

I've heard mixed results of this Zero stuff, some love it others hate it.   :-\

I meant to buy some to try it for myself, but I've been too lazy to do it...
