Picked up a carded Jann Tosh today to keep plugging away at my Droids collection. I may as well savor this because the remianing few I need, for the most part, are going to be very pricey.

Great game...scoreless after two! Next goal may win it. Both teams are skating well, refs are letting them play.

That play where the dude got smashed in the face with the puck was brutal. I never want to know what that would feel like.

Hockey players are the toughest mofos in sports, for shizzle.

Kenickie hell, he will always be Zack Allan to me.  :'(

RIP brother.

What, did they just limit it to stuff from the 80's or 90's? They missed several decades of outstanding programs.

Johnny Quest
Thundarr the Barbarian
Space Ghost
The 70's Flash Gordon
Original Spider-Man with that gay song
60's Fantastic Four

Shoot, I could probably come up with 25 just from my childhood alone...To Be Continued

I'm definitely bending over backwards, forwards and every which way to find not only Wedge, but another Gammo. This assortment has just not hit here yet. Apparently none of the peeps on JD have found him either.

What a wild game...I really thought the Bulls were going to get it done. For about 45 minutes they looked invincible.

Should be a great Finals, so many angles, storylines, etc. I just wish they would start throwing down this weekend!

I dug out an old box of original MOTU stuff and was disappointed to find out there is almost no secondary market value in these things at all.

Why is all the stuff from the 80's so worthless? Just too much of it around?

It doesn't really matter does it? No one ever dies permanently in comic books. I hate that.

Ok, we're halfway there! Awesome showing by the Mavs last night, Dirk was money once again. I think you have to be a little concerned about their propensity to fall behind late in this OKC series though. The thrilling come from behind heroics are exciting, but they're not likely to duplicate that success consistently against a veteran team like the Heat.

What's up with hometown hero Eric Maynor (VCU) waving off his OKC teammates at the end there? Did he forget who he was?  :D

Looking forward to a spirited match-up tonight, Bulls are going to bring it.

Losing the series is one thing, but giving up the tying goal with less than 20 seconds to play in a game you HAVE to have is pretty choke-worthy, IMO. Dudes, I was rooting for them, believe me, I rooted for them against the Red Wings and they almost blew that too, this after that poor showing last year.

Much as I root for 'em, the Caps certainly deserve that rep too now. Ya just gotta own it until you prove otherwise. No offense to anyone.

And ya, no interest in Bruins/Canucks, just no "zazz" in that matchup for me. Both teams just bore me to tears. Great franchises, lots of history, just not the marquee-type storylines an average joe like me could appreciate.

Admittedly, I'm just a casual fan.

Nice detective work there, that is really curious.

So they just slapped the wrong name on the card?

Since the JediInsider image was uncarded, how can we be sure THAT was not Blackout? He does look, well, blacker than the other dude.

I apologize also, because I have no recollection of who those source characters were from the show.

Whew, Miami really escaped narrowly last night, that would have been a tough loss to overcome. Pretty exciting stuff, although I still cannot understand how the Bulls are hanging in these games. They've barely got 2 guys that can score with any consistency. Yeah, the defense is good, but so is Miami's and their offense is much, much better. I guess rebounding is a big key, but still, kind of a head scratcher.

Hoping Mavs can close it out tonight and get some rest.

Will the Sharks EVER shed that "choker" label? Guess not.

If Boston comes out of the East, I'm done with watching hockey this year. I just have no interest in that match up.

At least if the Lightning win it takes a little tarnish off the Caps loss to them.

Ok, confused again.

So Sandtroopers has a new picture of the carded Stealth Ops Clone (CW57) - looks very cool.

I don't see what that has to do with Commander Blackout. (as per thr front page blurb) I mean, they are separate characters and that is going to be a separate carded release from TRU, is it not?

Is this another one of those Capt Fordo/ARC Trooper Commander deals where the same figure is being identified multiple ways by the online community?

I haven't seen any other sites refer to this figure as Blackout, so I'm just curious where that information originated.

I feel pretty secure that she has enough money already to resist the lure of ever writing any more of these. Kind of glad too, go out on top with the happy ending.

They just need to set up some kind of legal mumbo-jumbo that prevents anyone else from stepping in and besmirching her legacy by trying to write more books. I would hate to see this franchise go the way of Dune, or even Star Wars.
