Saga '02-'04 / Re: Burger King Glasses Figures!!!!!!
« on: May 4, 2004, 03:07 PM »
No sign of the second wave around here yet either, but the Luke glass is the one I have been looking forward to the most.  I really like these too, but I was a big fan of the Burger King glasses when I was a kid too, so that might be part of it.  $9.99 still seems a little steep to me, especially with a repacked figure.  I haven't picked up the Maul glass yet, although I have seen it several times, but I haven't decided if I'm going to get the prequel ones or not.  I just know that if later in the year they "surprise" us with an Episode III glass and figure, I'll have to get it, then I will want the ones from I and II as well, to have the whole set.  For now, only Obi and his glass are on my shelves here.  If they go on clearance I'd snatch up Maul though.

I agree Scott, might as well have the NBA Championship and Finals MVP to top off a terrific year :).  Big congrats to "Da Kid" on the MVP, he was very deserving and it is amazing how great he has become over the years.  I see he received 120 of 123 first place votes.  Here's the story:

Over at SuperHeroHype, they have the first look at Christian Bale in the Batman garb.  Apparently the image (and others) appear in this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly.  You can check out the picture online here:

Well, after another night of NBA Playoff goodness, the Kings and Pistons have moved on.  Another nail-biter between the Kings and Mavs, sans defense, and the Kings pulled out a one point win.  Now its on to see if the Wolves can finish out tonight.  A lot of trash talk going on in that series from what I have seen on Sportscenter this week.  I saw this morning that Nuggets backup Francisco Elson has even called Kevin Garnett "gay" in an attempt at trash talking.  Story  Hopefully the Wolves will rise above, and move on to the next round.

In other NBA News...or Olympics news depending on how you look at it.  It looks like Team USA might have to re-draft half of their roster.  The following players are said to be thinking about sitting out:  Kevin Garnett (wedding), Vince Carter (wedding), Ray Allen (expecting a child), Karl Malone (injury problems this season), Tim Duncan (injuries), Jermaine O'Neal (security concerns) and Kobe Bryant (legal concerns).

Big Fish is a movie the wife and I always wanted to check out when it was in theatres, but missed out on that.  We are hoping to rent it sometime this weekend to see how it is, and maybe buy it if we enjoy it.  It looked pretty good from the previews and comments I have seen on it.

Apparently, has a listing up for the Clone Wars Animated series on DVD.  It has a message saying it isn't currently in production, but if you sign up for their "e-mail me when available" feature on it, the information will be forwarded to the studio to let them know it is a demanded release.  If you want to see these on DVD, it might not hurt to try and help it out.  Here's the linky:

Well, the Lakers finished off the Rockets last night, so now we can move on to that 2nd Round matchup of Spurs - Lakers, should be a good one.  Hopefully the Wolves can take care of business tomorrow night against the Nuggs, and get out of the first round.  I'm glad these 1st round series are starting to wrap up for the most part, on to the good (or better) stuff now.  On a side note, they really could have left the first round series in the 5 game format in my opinion.  Seems like it takes a long time to get the first round done with, and really hurts any underdogs looking for an upset too.  I guess it didn't matter much since most of the series were sweeps or close to it.  Sacramento and Detroit have a chance to close out their respective series tonight.

For those of you who watch That 70s Show, they had a couple more references to Star Wars last night.  This show seems to be pretty good for a Star Wars reference here and there...last night Eric was constructing a "model" X-Wing, and later brings out a box of Star Wars models he had constructed while he and Donna were broken up.  They weren't actually models from what I could see, but actually Hasbro ships.  I think that is the second or third time this season they have shown Star Wars toys on this show, and maybe the 5th or 6th time they have referenced the movies.

Looks like it is a "no-go" on the Sandcrawler for now.  Hasbro has a brief Q and A update posted saying that Target has passed, and also answers a question about the VOTC line:

Thanks for the rest of the pics Brent, I didn't have enough time to post them earlier, so just got around to the Bounty Hunters one.  I'm another collector "stealing" these away from children I guess, because I really want to add these to my collection (the OT ones at least, although the others are tempting too).  As far as the figures, I don't think the Chewie or Vader are any different than the previous ones, but I'm not sure.  The R2 has the third leg, and 3PO is posed a little differently (first one had both arms down).  I hope that these aren't impossible to find, I've always really liked this line....I guess it kind of reminds me of the vintage days growing up too, simpler figures, but still fun.  I have every intention of saving these for any kids we might have in the future though.  Oh, and if any of you are holding out on buying the Falcon, I'd highly suggest picking it up....a real neat set.

I'll be picking up each of the New Hope Series, as well as the Bounty Hunters set (which was a nice surprise).  The PT figures look neat too (especially would like to have a Yoda), but I was trying to limit myself...we'll see if they ever show up in stores.  I hope these 2 packs continue, and they are reasonably priced (has anyone heard how much?).

Hasbro has posted an update of the continuation of the Playskool/Galactic Heroes line.  You can check out the article here:

Galactic Heroes

It looks like Wave 1 is A New Hope (although Han has Bespin Jacket), Wave 2 is Attack of the Clones, and Wave 3 is the Bounty Hunter Wave!  They are also re-releasing the Falcon in new packaging.

Stopped in at a Target while visiting some friends out of town this weekend.  The basic figure pegs were pretty bare, consisting of 1x Dutch Vander, 1x Hoth Luke, 1x R-3PO, and 2x Dignitary (Klen Blista).  They did have several Ultra figures though, 3x Jabba, 3x Denizens, and 1 or 2 each of Jango and Obi-Wan.  They had a pretty good stack of Obi-Wan and Maul glasses as well, still haven't picked up the Maul one for some reason (can't bring myself to pay $10 for it) :).  No sign of Star Destroyer, Ultra Ewok, or Endor Generals waves (and have only seen Dutch and Rappertunie from the previous two waves around here).  Still kind of a slow time for basic figures, I hope the OTC isn't this difficult to find.

Visiting friends out of town this weekend, stopped by a Target to check out what they had.  I found a lone Dutch Vander hanging on the pegs (as well as 1 Hoth Luke, 2 Dignitaries, and 1 R-3PO).  I picked up Dutch.  Not the most exciting figure in the world, but I was impressed with it nonetheless.  The helmet and articulation (specifically the knees, couldn't even see he had articulated knees until out of the package) are great, and a good background figure.  Still no sign of the Star Destroyer wave around, hoping to find Dengar and Bossk.
