I was really surprised at how much the Lakers struggled with San Antonio last night, I figured it would be a blow out.  I guess they did what they needed to do though, win, so what can we really say?  It makes me think it might be competitive at least though, once S.A. gets Duncan and Parker back.  Great game though :).

This next wave looks great.  So far I've only been collecting the "Original Trilogy" ones, with the exception of Yoda, and a Jango that I got as a gift.  The Clone looks pretty cool though...tempting.  I'd really like to see full shots of the Luke and Chewie though, I've really been looking forward to a Chewbacca to go with Han :).  Hopefully Hasbro will put their shots up soon.

I just saw (courtesy of Yakface) that there are some unrelease protos for some Playskool figures (Leia, Han, Luke, Stormtrooper).  Interesting to see more of what might have been, I really hope they revisit this line.  Here's the link to the auction if you'd like to see the pics:

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: LFL Summit...OT DVD's and a TV Show !?!?!!

One thing I noticed in the AICN blurb, they never actually said it was OT DVD's, although it most likely is...they just said " then the original Star Wars trilogy is being released September 2004".  I would guess it would be DVDs though, I know we all hope so :).

I hope that all of this news turns out to be true, it all sounds great to me.  Hopefully we will get some confirmation soon on the OT DVD's.  You would think if this information is true, and leaking out, that they would go ahead and announce them...we'll see.  I'm not sure what I would rather have if they go the television route.  I'm just excited to hear that it is a possibility, to continue SW a little longer.  I sometimes think that if they are doing something, with classic trilogy characters, that cartoon might be better because it might be difficult seeing Han, Luke, Leia, etc. played by different people if it was "live action".  Live action could be neat too though.  You never know I guess, we'll have to see.  Maybe its not all ending as soon as we thought :).

I have been really curious about this announcement too....there was so much rumor/speculation that it might be about the marketing campaign for Episode III, or to announce the OT on DVD, or something along those lines.  I really hope that we hear some sort of report soon, and maybe find out some good news.

Nice score!  This looks to be a pretty good wave, with some variety and well-done figures.  As OCB said, the hunt begins!  Thanks for posting that they are out there.....somewhere :).

My wife and I just rented "Reloaded" this past weekend, we never caught it in theatres either.  It was alright, but I wasn't overly impressed.  The fight scenes, of course, were still great...but I didn't think it was nearly as good as the first one.  The first one is a pretty good movie I think, good story and everything.  Haven't decided if we'll go see Revolutions in the theatre, or just wait it out like the last one, we'll see I guess.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Hasbro Jedi Points Survey - Did U Get One?
« on: November 6, 2003, 09:56 AM »
I see I got one this morning (or yesterday) as well.  I started to fill it out, but I got to the question about how many points I had, and I really had no idea, so I closed it and I guess I'll fill it out later.  I guess it is good that they at least make an attempt to get some feedback from the fans/collectors though, hopefully it helps in the future.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Hall of Fame assortment
« on: November 6, 2003, 09:55 AM »
I'm kind of worried about this assortment as well.  I'm totally on board with those who have mentioned the true "hall of fame" assortment...all new, as perfect as they can be versions of these characters would be very, very welcome by me, and I'd buy each and every one.  But, some of these re-releases don't make sense.  If it truly is the Commtech Han and the "new likeness" Leia again, when they are already re-released now...that doesn't make sense to me.  At least release something like the Bespin Capture Han from POTJ, or maybe the Commtech Leia, or something different like that.  I really wish Hasbro would do an ultimate assortment and go all out on the main characters, make the definitive versions of them in their "popular" outfits...but I have the feeling we'll at least have to wait until the movies are all said and done before we get those.

I agree, this scoring (lack of) is ridiculous.  I really hope that the teams get things figured out, so that we can get back to the high scoring days!  I can understand some 80 point, even 70 point games, but 60's and 50's is a bit too low.  Hopefully it is just early, and things will improve....although scoring has been down in recent years too.  Do they need a little more shooting practice? :P

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Saga Purchases
« on: November 4, 2003, 12:38 PM »
Well, thanks to a preorder shipping from Kebco, and getting some figs from my buddy JediMAC, I think I'm "almost" caught up now.  Over the past week I have received Ephant Mon, Aayla Secura, Barriss Offee, Wedding Padme, Yoda and Chian, Ashla and Jempa, Vader Throne Room, and Luke Throne Room.  I am waiting on another preorder to ship from Kebco with Mynock Chewie and the Snowtrooper, and I think I will be all caught up until the Concept Stormie/Elan/Obi/Ayy/Dignitary wave hits the stores.  I hope that retail will be brighter for the upcoming year than it was in 2003.

I really like the looks of this wave, and the beginning of the great offerings for the next year.  I personally think the Luke Hoth looks really good, and the rest of the wave is nice too.  I think that the idea of themed waves is great, hopefully it keeps up, at least until Episode III hits.  I just hope that we are able to find/get these figures in the stores.  It has been better lately, but I still worry a little :).  I guess I should have, or still should, just preorder these and quit worrying :).

Yeah, I think that plot outline looks pretty sweet too.  Hopefully it will be something like this, but I'm never sure what to believe with spoilers (especially a year and a half in advance).  I really think that this movie could be really good, and I hope that Star Wars goes out with a bang.
