That is a pretty swindly move. The Lightning went to cards this year too. But we can email or print tickets and give them to anyone. If you are in a group you can ask for extra cards and your agent will put each person in the groups games on separate cards.

I am sure once the find out about True North's bs, that might change down the road. But I thought it might be a one year deal to save on reprinting tickets knowing there was going to be a lockout.

Nice work!

I started doing this last year and only got through seasons one and two. It is a great resource for dreams. There are still some flat out no brainers that they should make though. Here is to hoping, and thanks for making the list!

I assume they are talking about syndication there, but it would be nice to imagine that the show might actually continue its run of new episodes post-Cartoon Network. I believe the contract is up after this season?

I believe it says in the article that the Clone Wars has always been on a year to year contract with CN. I am still surprised we don't have word on season six one way or another by now. I would think they would have to be doing story boards and initial artwork at least by this point if it was a go. If not, would they not have leaked that by now? As hit and miss as some of the episodes are, I love the show and hope it stays on at least until Episode 7 arrives.

Everyone's favorite Jedi media specialist arrived at my door today! Now I have to decide if I should open her or not.

There are some folks suggesting Jagr will challenge for the scoring title.

Or, ideally: "We sold that sub-line to Disney. They will have 40 new figures out in 2013 starting this spring with the Pong Krell wave..."


That would be the kind of news that makes me take out a small business loan!

     As far as the players, I can't agree more. Fans have seemingly become more and more of a nuisance to them in the last decade. Maybe social media is to blame, and we have too much access, but whatever it is instead of shaking hands and talking to kids, more and more of the players seem to want to be protected from the masses instead of embracing them. That is what always made me prefer hockey to baseball and football, and now sadly that my be slipping away. Hopefully they make a genuine effort to reach out to fans, but we will have to see how everything plays out.

     I also have a problem with how Bettman has been cast through all of this. He has helped expand the game, (as evidenced by players from 13 states including Florida and California on the Gold Medal US Junior Team). The league has never been more profitable. Other than fans in Atlanta, Hartford, and Quebec City home teams are still home teams. Some people will never be happy until every team has been removed from the league and only the original six remain, but for the rest of us there is a lot to root for.

So apparently there's this new book out called "Darth Maul: Shadow Conspiracy."

And why should you care?

Because it reveals things. BIG things. About the upcoming Maul/Mandalore arc.  :-X

Spolier: Lots of people die. :o :o :o

If the storyline summary I read based on this is accurate...This could be the best Clone Wars Arc ever.

No body, therefore possibly not dead:

Darth Maul
Ahsoka Tano
Mace Windu
Emperor Palpatine
Various Jedi Council Members: Shaak Ti and others

Am I missing any?

Ventress, Cad Bane, Rex

I ordered a Fox online because of that, and only ever saw two in the wild. All of my stores are currently a wasteland of Obi and Anakin figures from last January.

It really needs another section down there to support the tower so it can keep being a tower... maybe something with EV-9D9 and some busted up tortured droids.

Add a cell for Chewie and Han to reunite in and I am out another 60 bucks.

And while we are at it, a stage with Max Rebo's band, even though I think he will be included in the new barge.

The tower is connected with 3 posts, so you could opt for the hanging on look or just disconnect it and place it where you like.

The palace trap door and sliding throne for Jabba are sweet. I just wish it was bigger for 100 bucks, but it is still awesome.

Rancor Pit looks decent.  Just not sure I'm willing to dish out the cash for Jabba's chamber or palace or whatever they call it plus this set.

To sweeten the deal, according to the notes on the TRU website, the rancor set will attach to the bottom of the palace set and make that working trap door actually really cool. They did do a nice job with the palace though. My 8 year old is only half way through the build, (I so badly want to help), but the details are nice. They even have the droid ball that pops out of the door to greet R2 and 3PO.

Also it looks like the Hoth set that is not available for pre order from Amazon will be a TRU exclusive, so be prepared to overpay if you want the probe droid to complete your set.

IFett, now that the new versions have been announced the price of those old sets should fall a bit. The barge looks different,based on the first few pics I would say I prefer the one you have. The gunship really seems about he same.
The nice thing about Lego is you can almost always get at least your money back, so if you like the new minifigs better sell and upgrade. If not you have two fewer items to buy this year, it's a win win.
