Jocasta's Reading Room / Millenium Falcon Book
« on: October 24, 2008, 12:50 PM »
Anyone else read this yet? A lot of it was kinda far fetched, but none the less interesting to learn the past of the Falcon.

I agree. But that's what happens when your reading a book that's a description of a video game. It was really easy to see yourself in the video game fighting off enemies and then getting to bosses and passing a level when you were reading. So that didn't surprise me.

I love this line because its nice to be able to get vehicles where scale doesn't matter. But they are so hit and miss. I read someone finds a new wave 3 weeks ago and then never hear of them being seen again until 3 months later. Quite frustrating.

Other Collectibles / Re: Clone Wars Happy Meal Toys

I haven't actually seen these in person, but from the pictures I've seen I like them. And off of what Jeff was saying, as crazy as it sounds, I think Happy Meals are meant for little children and not 30+ year olds.

Just wanted to point out there is a huge difference between a "street date" and the day a Target "planogram" is supposed to set. A 3/23 Target date just means the endcap has to be up by then not that it can't go up before then. A street date means you can't put in out before then and if you do you could get penalized by the company who produces it.

When I saw pics of this I thought what a waste but when I actually got my hands on it I was impressed. The two fat wookies together really looks cool. And to have them battling Stormtroopers instead of Clone Troopers tops it off.

I agree a lot with what you say Muftak however to say that they "killed off" Pellaeon doesn't make sense. I loved his character and will miss him, but he was 92ish years old. He had to die soon and I'd much rather he go the way he did than to find out he had a stroke two years later.

And I miss Mara but big characters have to go sometime otherwise there is no drama when they are in bad situations if you know they will always make it through.

I enjoy the Mando stuff, but felt it would have fit in its own book better than cramming it into these books ever so often when Traviss was the author.

And anything is better than the Killik books!!!!!!!

Its been a week and a half since I got mine but the book is only $20 on clearance at Barnes and Nobles now for anyone who isn't already aware.

Jocasta's Reading Room / Re: Darth Bane Novel
« on: January 22, 2008, 03:10 PM »
Has anyone read the 2nd Bane book? I did and I think they easily could have called it Darth Zannah instead of Bane. I wanted to learn about his apprentice but still more about him than I felt the book did. If they were going to concentrate on a different Darth so much why not do the Plagueis book like they were originally.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: AT-TE to be released next fall in 2008!

I don't think its fair to say us collectors need to put up or shut up in this case. I agree if hasbro sold these out at $100 each we would see other large scale vehicles. But I'm not going to pay a $100 for a vehicle I want just to hope it gets me a $100 vehicle I do want down the line.

Couldn't disagree with you guys any more. I love having one timeline. It of course doesn't always work out but I love it. I also loved the Vong!!!!

Vintage Kenner / How to do "self" grading?
« on: December 15, 2007, 03:41 PM »
I have a 21 Back Boba Fett and it has some creases and a small bubble crack and some yellowing. When I look for a guess at value I see all the C#'s and prices but I have no idea how to guess what condition mine is in and I'm not going to send it in anywhere to have it graded.
Any suggestions?
