Plo Koon Jedi Starfighter - Cancelled?

"June 3 2005: This item is not available at Entertainment Earth. Entertainment Earth has not received any units of this item from Hasbro."

Does this mean it's not coming or just that EE won't be carrying it?

Maybe it's now it's going to be an exclusive someplace else?

Hmmm...  :-\

A little birdie told me these are now shipping to some e-tailers.  They should be here soon...

I never heard of anyone actually getting them, but Rebelscum's report made it sound like they did come out at some point.  Really glad that's not the case, but I still despise OT product in ROTS packaging.


What?  An innaccurate/misleading report at Rebelscum?   :o   ::)

Seriously though, I'm glad Pawlus confirmed what I said, I'd hate for you to have to take my word for it...  :P

;)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Any ROTS figures you will pass on?
« on: June 7, 2005, 03:58 PM »
I've picked up all the basic figures I've seen so far (#1- #44).  I might not like them all, but I bought them all.   :-[

I think the only 3.75" stuff I've been able to skip so far is:

Deluxe Figures
Clone 3 Pack (Series 3) -- Haven't seen them yet, but I don't think I want them

Vehicles
Anakin's Jedi Starfighter (TRU Green Version) -- repaint ship + rehash figure = pass
Republic Gunship -- repaint ship = pass

I think the only other 3.75" scale thing I am planning on skipping so far is the Plo Koon Starship (repaint).  Everything else I'll probably end up with...  :-\

I still can't believe they changed the name from Anaheim to Los Angeles? 

I agree. 

"The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim"?

Is this the correct droid for the ARC-170?

I think R4-G9 is the droid for the Jedi Starfighter that Obi-Wan takes to Utuapau.

But, feel free to use him where ever you want!  ;)

Twinkies suck.


That's all.

 >:(

Minn = 33-22 (.600)
LAA ::) = 33-24 (.579)
LAD = 29-27 (.518)

If the Twinkies "suck", at least the Angels/Dodgers suck more.   :-*

Yeah, and IIRC, I think we may have one in the OTC section too, where we were expecting these 3 cups to actually show up.  So, what's the going price on a set of them from the OTC Japan line?  I have a bad feeling I'm gonna have to pony up for those now...  :'(

Actually, they were NEVER "officially" released in Japan as other sites would have you believe.

As an intrepid reporter once said, only salesman samples ever showed up on eBay for the cup sets in the OTC packaging.  Only a VERY few ever showed up on eBay, like 1-3 sets that I ever saw, all from the same seller.

Amazon Japan took pre-orders, but the pre-orders were never filled, they just kept postponing the due date every month for about 9 months, then finally gave up.

In fact, most Japanese e-tailers that still have the OTC version for pre-order now mention the new packaging.

I guess since these are in ROTS packaging now, we should continue the discussion over in Cup thread in the ROTS figure forum.

 :)

ps
YES, I bumped this just to be funny...

I read on a SoIaF message boards that Feast of Crows was soooo long the publisher made him go back and split it in two.  Opinions are mixed if this now means there will be 8 books or still 7.  It also sounds like the first book will deal solely with the South and the second with the North and they should both be out this year

Straight from the horse's mouth:

"About three weeks ago I hit 1527 pages of final draft, surpassing A STORM OF SWORDS... but I also had another hundred or so pages of roughs and incomplete chapters, as well as other chapters sketched out but entirely unwritten. That was when I realized that the light I'd seen at the end of the tunnel was actually the headlight of an onrushing locomotive.

And that's why my publishers and I, after much discussion and weighing of alternatives, have decided to split the narrative into two books (printing in microtype on onion skin paper and giving each reader a magnifying glass was not considered feasible, and I was reluctant to make the sort of deep cuts that would have been necessary to get the book down to a more publishable length, which I felt would have compromised the story).

...

The division has been done, and it think it works quite well. The upshot is, A FEAST FOR CROWS is now moving into production. It is still a long book, but not too long; about the same size as A GAME OF THRONES. The focus in FEAST will be on Westeros, King's Landing, the riverlands, Dorne, and the Iron Islands. More than that I won't say.

Meanwhile, all the characters and stories removed from FEAST are moving right into A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, which will focus on events in the east and north. All the chapters I have not yet finished and/or begun are moving into DANCE. I think this is very good, if truth be told, since it will give me the room to complete those arcs as I had originally intended, rather than trying to tie them up quickly in a chapter or two so I could deliver the massively late Big FEAST. "

Dated 5-29-2005

There is more, this is just an excerpt... head here to read the whole big long explaination of the cut.

Good weekend for the Twinkies!

Taking 2/3 from the Yanks forcing them to drop to 4th place in the AL East = priceless   ;D

Mid-June is when the Twins seem to hit their stride.  Only being 3.5 games back isn't too bad, I'm still confident the Sox will implode at some point.   ;)

Oooh... I'm in for this one.  I've got a few EU/fan-fic smugglers I could tweak for this challenge.   :)

Feedback / Texican's feedback
« on: June 6, 2005, 01:40 PM »
I have the honor of starting a feedback thread for Texican.

He bought some loose figures from me and everything went smoothly.  Quick to respond to e-mails and quick to send payment!   ;)

No worries on this deal!  Thanks again!

Jeff
