Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Wars toys are OUT!!!
« on: June 25, 2003, 12:23 AM »
I heard something about a street date for Clone Wars at Target, might anyone know when this is? Are they just waiting for the Christmas reset?

I'm trying to find Yoda and the Younglings now, as well as a bunch of Unleashed figures I foolishly didn't order online, seeing as how not a single store here carries that line anymore.

I want to take a sick day today and not do a damn thing. Too busy at work, gah, I hate it.

I was considering using some vacation time, but I need it for when Return of the King comes out in December.

Schindler's List
Saving Private Ryan
(I think I should stop watching tear-jerking Spielberg films)
 And Braveheart, at the end.

Also, Boromir's death in Fellowship of the Ring. Also Gandalf's line "All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you."

I'm not sure if it's real or not, but it's a good idea. Since Freddy vs. Jason is finally getting made, why not this one?

But if it's pre-production, I doubt costumes and sets like those pictured would be ready to go already.

I don't know if there's a thread about this or not, but here goes.
Anyone else collect these here? I'm a G1 addict. Anything G1 that Hasbro reissues, I buy, even if I have the Japanese counterpart. I just found the TRU exclusive Prowl, and thirty dollars later it was sitting on a shelf next to the rest of my G1 stuff.

I might post pics of my stuff later. I'm hoping they don't have to be on the 'net as they do when trying to post at RS. ::)

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?
« on: June 20, 2003, 02:00 PM »
I want a bunch of different colors. I'm thinking I'll buy about five sets, regardless of color. I wanted to get a bunch of Droid sets, but those are a little on the ugly side, so I'll just use that money to get more Clones.

I wish Hasbro would do something like this for Stormtroopers. Man, that would be sweet.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Target Has New Items
« on: June 20, 2003, 01:57 PM »
I think my local Target has already received and burned through their allotment of new stuff. Damn. They got in the Padawan case a week ago, but they haven't yet received the stuff with new cardbacks.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: What 2003 SAGA product are you still missing?
« on: June 19, 2003, 01:44 AM »
I'm missing Chewie Mynock Hunt, Yoda/Chian, Ashla/Jempa, Red Battle Droid, and the new Deluxe Obi-Wan and Jango.
I also lack the following Unleashed figures: Mace Windu, Vader Redux, Leia(really want this one), Luke, Sidious, Obi-Wan, and whatever else is coming out on those groovy new cards.

I hope I find all this stuff before the Clone Wars line debuts and takes up the meager space retail stores have for Star Wars.

I'll pick stuff up off the floor, but only if it's a line I collect. I also put figures that are sitting on top of vehicles back on the pegs as well. I'll try to put rarer figures on the front of the pegs or stash 'em for fellow collectors.

Bring on those Clone packs!!

I've been jonesin' to go nuts buying SW figures this year. Hopefully the Clone Wars line will be given more shelf space than what Saga currently has now.

Maybe, if we all eat our vegetables and clean our rooms, Hasbro will be nice and have plenty of those 2003 figs everyone's been looking for right there with the Clone Wars toys.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Your Bands...
« on: June 17, 2003, 12:40 PM »
Led Zeppelin
Metallica-before St. Anger, anyway.
Pearl Jam
Jimi Hendrix
Iron Maiden
Nerf Herder

I also dig some one-hit-wonder 80's bands, like Fine Young Cannibals and stuff you get on CDs when you subscribe to Entertainment Weekly.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: ...More than they can chew?

I've noticed, if it's on a 2003 card, no matter what it is, it doesn't last long. R2 and Mace, supposed collector stinkers, disappear in 1-2 days, and it takes weeks before anything else remotely new arrives on pegs. What's the dillio? Are these not in distributor's warehouses or what? I find it hard to believe they get cases that infrequently and pegs sit empty most of the time, at least around here.

I found a blonde Imperial Officer at Target today, so maybe that's the place to be. I didn't find any Younglings or Yoda, or Red Battle Droid for that matter. Hopefully BBTS will stock them soon, cause I don't like buying cases.

I also bought Hail to the Thief. Good stuff. An early favorite is 'There There.'
