Morgbug: In Canuckia Dr. Pepper is bottled by Pepsi? Interesting, since Dr. P is produced by the same company that makes 7-UP, which is definitely not a part of the Pepsi Company.

The two largest Pepsi bottlers in North America are The Pepsi Bottling Group and PepsiAmericas, togther they are responsible for about 85% of the Pepsi sold in the USA and Canada.

Both of these companies also bottle for the Dr.Pepper/7-Up company as well, which is why you ofter see one of the other's name on the bottles.

PepsiCo, Inc. holds approximately 43.7 percent equity interest in The Pepsi Bottling Group.
PepsiCo, Inc. holds approximately 41.4 percent equity interest in PepsiAmericas.

So, while PepsiCo doesn't actually own 7-Up/Dr. Pepper, they do own a HUGE percent of the companies that bottle and sell those products.

As for me, I like Coke.

If I go to a restaurant and order a Coke and the waitress says "Is Pepsi OK?"  I'm a big enough jerk to say "no it isn't" and then I often go for a root beer instead of drinking Pepsi...  :P

Don't forget the Wild...

We "upgraded" from enforcer Matt Johnson (473 games, 1523 Penalty Minutes) to left wing/enforcer Andrei Nazarov (569 games, 1403 PM).

But my favorite move so far has been drafting LW Benoit Pouliot...

Look at him!  The hair!  The name!  Now that's a Hockey player!   :P

A question about the repaints of the Clones....are they still Numbered #6 and #41 for the Clones and whatever the numbers were for Clone Commanders and Pilots?

Or are they higher up in number?

I keep sending my "scouts" on runs but I don't have the proper intel for them.

These are the only repaints that do have the same numbering -

#6 Clone Trooper (Red Shocktrooper)
#33 Clone Commander (Green)
#34 Clone Pilot (Black)

The rest of the new repaints are numbered #57-68.

Cool!  Nice pull Matt!  Looks like Dale got a Master case from HLJ after all...  ;)

As for me, my Stormie Han arrived today in the mail (from Ningyoushi)!  Guess I can go back to looking for carded 'brick bargains until Series 5!   ;D

(clicky for bigger photo)

And, as an FYI, this is the best picture I could get of all my Han's lined up:

You can kinda see in the picture that Han's head is definately a paler shade and actually, the hair-peice is slightly different color brown on all three of mine.

Great, just great.   >:(

Stick a fork in my beloved Minnesota Twins.  With the news that Torii has a broken ankle and will miss at least a month (and maybe the rest of the year) I'm pretty convinved the Twinks are done.

In the AL Central, we're now 14.5 games behind Chicago (who show no signs of slowing down).  Even if the Chi-Sox slow down to a paltry .500 pace to finish the year, the Twins would have to go 42-19 (.689) over the next 61 games to pull even with them.   :o

In the Wild Card Race, we're 4 games behind Oakland, the team we happen to be starting a 3-game series with, and we're coming off a 3-8 road trip.  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.  :-\

It was a good run while it lasted though...   :'(

Looks like they are trying to mimic the original EB tray/package.  Definately not carded though!

Any one know what happened to that Fantastic Four Kubrick set? Has the movie been released in Japan?

I think that some singles of the FF Kubys were released in bags for the movie promo, but I don't think that the box set has been released yet...

Palmeiro has been suspended for steroids!   :o


Wow, that's big news... My friend and I were just having a "Is he HoF material or not" debate the last time we hung out. 

With 3000 hits and 500 HR, it's hard to say he's not a HoF'er, but this is gonna hurt his chances big time.

I guess Jose Canseco wasn't lying about shooting up with Palmiero after all.  :-X

i dun think jabba is far off.. with 'bikini' leia coming out next series.. jabba and gang could be the next 'rebo' set!

I think that would be perfect for the next big box set.  Here's who I'd like to see in a nice Jabba Box Set:

- Jabba w/Dias
- Bib Fortuna
- Gamorrean Guard
- Skiff Lando

So, what about a creature like the Bantha?  That is pretty much flawless, but the rider could use an update (at least in my opinion).


They should re-release the existing Bantha without a pack-in (like Darth_Anton said) and then release a SA Tusken Raider w/Gaffi and Rifle that would be capable of riding it at the same time in a Battle of Tatooine wave!  Problem solved!

Bantha w/ Tusken (rehash w/ new Tusken) -
Rancor w/ Gamorrean (rehash w/ new Gamorrean) -

I think the POTF2 ronto and particularly the dewback hold up pretty well, so I wouldn't be against rereleasing these with new riders and accessories. Maybe a variant dewback equipped like the one seen in Mos Espa in TPM?

I'm going to have to say NO to these ideas!

Just say NO to rehashing old beasts with new figures/riders!  I've already got all these and if they re-released them with new figures, then me and all my OCD buddies will have to re-buy stuff we already have to get new figures! 

Nothing sucks more than dropping $20 on something you already have just to get the $5 figure inside.  >:(

AAAAaararggg!  Bad idea! 

If it's not ALL new or ALL old/rehash, then I don't want to see it!   ;)

In case anyone is interested...

Not too bad a price and it's already in the USA so shipping shouldn't be too bad.  I really considered it, but I just don't have an extra $300 to drop right now.   :(
