When's the drawing?

The contest ended on Sunday night, so we are in the process of verifying the entries (removing duplicates and frauds) and should have a winner announced soon...


Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Deluxe Figures

On the topic of Yoda, I must admit I was a little disappointed with the Yoda figure.

They really should have called this one Can-cell with Yoda, because the Can-cell is the deluxe figure and Yoda is the cheap pack in.  No articulation in the legs, so he's really only good as a "sitting" Yoda figure (not to mention the square box in his behind where he plugs onto the saddle of the Can-cell  ::)). 

I really like the Can-cell (it is a little too large for my shelf though  :-\), but the Yoda is really only good for riding the Can-cell or sitting on a chair.  Luckily, I've got plenty of other Yodas, so I'm probably not going to lose any sleep over it...


Thought I'd bump up this thread in case you guys didn't notice the front page...

Well, this RotS version is the one I got.  *whew*  :)

I'm not really interested in the TPM color since I've already got like 4 of those (the 3-pack and the one from the Naboo Ship).

I guess it fits with the standard Hasbro practice to take the suckiest figure in a wave (Vulture Droid) and make it the one that pisses collectors off because they can't get it (or all the variations of it)!  :P

Anyone have a picture of the color variants on the Vulture Droid?  :-\

I got one last week, but have no idea which one it is...  :(

I don't really care if we get all the Clones with the pretty paint schemes.  As otheres have said, it's not too hard to paint/repaint clones yourself.  Just find the right shade of paint and a #6 or #41 Clone and you're off!

What I would like to see though are all the unique Clone Commanders - those with the different helmets/armor designs, like #33 and Bacarra.  I'm glad we're getting Bly in the Evolutions set and I'd like to see Commander Cody and the other Commanders too.


Kubricks / Series 4
« on: May 9, 2005, 04:59 PM »
I had a dream last night about SW Series 4...

In my dream the chases were:

Lobot (in the Bespin Luke box) - 3/48
Capt/Adm Piett (in the Vader Box) - 1/96
Imperial Dignitary (in the Emperor box) - 1/96

In my dream, they kicked ass!  Guess I'm starting to get ansy for Series 4 in a few weeks!

Of course, I am not known to predict the future, so take it with a grain of salt for now.  If it turns out to be right, I'll start up my own Psychic hot-line or something...  :P

From the fine folks at Hasbro:

"As our collector fans know, Target will offer an exclusive Star Wars: Episode III Collector's Case 5 pack for 2005. Originally scheduled for release early May, we are reworking based on initial collector feedback, making adjustments to ensure every Star Wars: Episode III 3 3/4 inch action figure fits properly within each case.  We will update fans on availability of this improved value 5-pack version when we have more information.
Thanks for your feedback and we are confident you will enjoy the final product soon. "

My third deal with everyone's favorite Canucklehead from Saskatsewnaawnan...

I sent Jesse a bunch of stuff and he paid me right-quick.  I hope you enjoy your box of RotS Loot, Jesse!   ;)

Another good deal with Brent!

I sent Brent a big box of exclusives and he sent me some cash.

It was an awesome deal that I will keep in my heart forever.   ;)

I have a totaly apathy for the NBA this playoff season.

No Wolves to cheer for, no LAkers to cheer against... boring.   :'(

Seems pretty quiet in here, so I must not be the only one.  No playoff smack-talking without the Woofies and the Kobes?  :-\

How 'bout those Celtics Brent?

Bonds -

First, will he make it back this year?

I kinda hope he does only because I want to see him come to town when the Twins play the Giants, but I don't know if he will be the same player with his bum knee.

Second, will he have to move to the AL to be a DH to end his career?

Can you picture Bonds in Pinstripes?  You know if they Giants decide to move him, the Yankers would be all over it.  I'd love to see where the bidding war would end up...


Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS Pegwarmers?
« on: May 6, 2005, 02:07 PM »
Thought it was time to bump up the pegwarmer thread...

Here in MN the pegs are full of the first wave of deluxe, lots of all 4 of those guys left.  :(

For the basic figures, just about everywhere I go Tarfful and Grievous Bodyguard outnumber the rest of the figures 5-to-1.  Anakin and Obi-Wan (all versions) sell pretty well and disappear over time, but those Grievous Bodyguards just sit there and clog up the pegs.

One Target I hit today had 20+ Bodyguard on the pegs and 15+ Tarfful, easily outnumbering anyone else that was there.

Have a pegwarmer you're sick of seeing already (even though it's only been 1 month  :P)?


Any tally for this one yet?

Wow, it's been several days and still no word on whether these will be available beyond Khol's. Also, why would Khol's be able to get something first?

This is quite interesting.

All the info I have heard thus far from Hasbro indicates that these will only be able at Kohl's (therefore Kohl's exclusives).
