I'm really looking forward to the season starting tomorrow too.  I don't really have a favorite team, but trying to pick one to follow "more closely".  Either way, its going to be a great year for hoops I think.  I've always been a big NBA fan, and followed the Bulls religiously from 88-98, but things weren't the same after they broke the Bulls up, so I've been looking for a team ever since.  I really enjoy Tracy McGrady's game, so maybe it will be Magic (even though they have basically zero chance at a title, as with the majority of the Eastern conference).  Anyways, like OCB said, the west should be a tremendous race to keep an eye on.  The Mavs could be shooting for several 150 point games this year too, when everyone's on.  I'll admit I'm not the biggest Laker fan either (although I can admit they are a very good team), so the Shaq/Kobe thing is kind of funny to me, but I'm sure they will be dominant regardless of if they are getting along or not (I'm not so sure they ever REALLY have).  Watching some of the young guys (LeBron, Melo) should be fun too.  I hope people don't expect too much from "King James", but I do think he has the skills to be really good.  I think Carmelo might have the better year this year though.  Anyways, should be fun, can't wait for it all to start tomorrow night...good luck to all of your teams on the upcoming season though, hope its a great one :).

I thought I'd bring this back up, because I've been thinking about getting into these as well.  I did see the new C-3PO one this past weekend while shopping, although I didn't pick it up.  I found Angry Ewok's article helpful, because I was curious what has all been released so far.  Is there anywhere to see pictures of all of these ornaments, or is just searching on ebay the best option for this?  Also, would it be really difficult (or expensive) to catch up on these (Original Trilogy releases only).  Thanks for the info you have all provided on these ornaments too :).

I'm usually not much for expanded universe, but this Clone Wars cartoon looks to be shaping up to be pretty cool.  I noticed that the Star Wars official site has been adding more and more CW information lately, and at their "Inside Clone Wars" page, they have some pics and information on some of the characters, vehicles, etc. from the cartoon micro-series.  One new one I noticed was the Clone Scuba Trooper, which I think looks kind of cool.  Has anyone else taken a look at these, and if so, what do you think of them?

Although there are a few different snacks my wife and I enjoy from time to time (cheetos, nacho cheese doritos, pringles, fruit, peanuts, etc.) I'd have to say my favorite right now (and actually new within the past year) is Cheddar Jack Cheez Its.  They are quite tasty.  We happened to try a sample at Wal-Mart awhile back, and I've been hooked ever since.  I could eat them every day...although they give you breath that could kill gardens :).

Although I don't have one to sell you (or one for myself either), I thought I would let you know that Kebco does have these in stock right now at their site, but for $7.99.  I don't know if you would be willing to pay that much or not, but I just thought I'd let you know either way.

Is there still an Eastern Conference in the NBA?

 :D too true anymore.  I have always been a fan of the east as well, but the balance of power is most certainly westward.  It should be an interesting year with all of the team changes/upgrades.  I was surprised by the Dallas trade on Monday as well.  I've never been a huge Antoine Walker fan, and sometimes think he is a little over rated, but it sure seems like the Celtics could have gotten more for him in a trade.  Lafrentz might be able to have a decent year playing against eastern centers though.  I'm looking forward to seeing how this season goes...starts next week I believe.

I got my lightspeed pass on Monday, but unfortunately I am not able to order any.  My wife and I only have a Discover credit card, which they do not accept, so I guess I'm out of luck.  If anyone isn't ordering all four for themselves, I'll gladly pay for one!  Otherwise, I guess I'll have to talk the wife into signing up for another credit card to get one :).

I've really been looking forward to this game as well.  I don't really buy a whole lot of video games anymore, but this is one I definitely want to pick up.  I saw the reviews aren't exactly glowing either, although not necessarily bad either from what I have read.  I thought it came out today (or this week for sure), has anyone picked it up yet?

I really hope those wave thoughts/rumors/ideas turn out to be true, all of those figures sound great.  I'd really like to see the Endor, Bespin, and Dagobah waves pan out that way.  It would be nice to get a new OT Yoda, and a new Dagobah Luke as well, possibly with one or both coming with (parts?) of Yoda's hut.  It might not be do-able on the Deluxe/Ultra card, but it would be nice.

As reported at, Cartoon Network has updated their Clone Wars site.  You can check out bios, games, and more about the upcoming micro-series there.  A pretty nice site IMO, if you want to check it out...clicky here:

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Retail 2004: How Do You Think It Will Be?
« on: October 17, 2003, 10:47 AM »
I'd like to be able to rely on retail as well, its a little cheaper, and its always nice actually finding something in the stores like that.  I've had a little bit of lucky lately with the Screen Scenes, Hoth Han, the first 3 Clone Wars figures, and my brother found me the Faytonni wave, and JediMAC is helping me fill out some holes in my collection from this year....but I really don't want to miss out on any 2004 figures.  I was hoping that maybe the new "wave every month" thing for next year would help, but I don't know.  Since I don't have anywhere to shop in my home town for the figures it is a 30-40 minute drive just to check for them, most likely on a Saturday, so they'll probably be cleared out before I get there.  I don't remember having quite this much trouble during POTJ though.  Hopefully it will improve :).

I see according to some posts on that figures such as Fisto, er um...Battle Fist, King Hiss, etc. are showing up on ebay now.  I still haven't seen any signs of anything past Sy-Klone and Prince Adam around here, but if I'm going to collect these I'd need to do a lot of catching up anyways.  Now if I could only find Roboto somewhere for less than $30  :P.
