Saga '02-'04 / Found New Figs, But Not For Sale?
« on: July 23, 2003, 11:30 AM »
That right you heard it right.  Walmart Blows!  I went there early this morning hoping for a miracle and what did I find?  The same 10 Padme Pilots and Jangos, plus about 50 Cantina Packs.  I asked a stockperson in Toys if he could check the back.  He scanned one of the pegs and told me that the inventory showed about 100 figs.  With only 10 or so figs on the peg I got excited thinking I was finally going to score.  So he went out back and returned empty handed.  The verdict?  No figs on the floor til the pegs had been cleared.  Do you believe it?  I wonder how many more stores are sitting on product.  I was fully prepared to spend a good chunk of change but they did not want my money.  Whats going to happen?  The figs will probably be returned for credit in the future, leaving us collectors empty handed and making twice as much work for Walmart to return the items in the future.  Where is the logic?

Anyone have no trouble finding multiples of this fig?  This to me was the toughest figure to acquire of late.  No online sellers have him and he rarely comes up on ebay.  Whats the story with the variant head sculpts?  I thought these would be somewhat easy to find.  On the other hand, the blonde variant is everywhere, and seems to be shipping in greater numbers.

I am officially back in the SW community and think I will set up home here at JD.  It seems like alot of old familiar faces are hanging out here which I have really missed over the last half year.  Just wanted to send out a big hey to all those that have helped me out these past several years and especially the last several months.  Special thanks go out to OCB and Jedimac for welcoming me back.   ;D

Anyone remember these? It got me thinking after I saw the Garbage Pail Kids thread.  These were great IMO.  I still have some of mine from the early '70's as well as the early '80's.  It seems Topps used to issue these every 10 years or so.  Heres hoping they make a future return.

My son is 19 months old and all I can say is that his mannerisms and things he does totally mirror myself.  Its amazing how genes are past down.  At times it is a frightening reality with pure humor mixed right in.  Not only is he a spitting image of myself, but all those little things my parents say I did as a kid are playing out through him now.  Its like your parents always said:  "I hope your kids are just like you were."

Saga '02-'04 / Jedi Points? Your Prediction
« on: July 17, 2003, 10:15 AM »
Looks like this will be announced tomorrow.  What are your thoughts of what it might be? Like most people I have so many points I am afraid that it will be an item that will only use up about 1/10th of my points.  I am hoping for some type of army builder which will allow us to get rid of them all.  It would of been nice to offer a few items to those who collect different items or have a certain amount of points.  Hasbro should of offered 4 items that would appeal to everyone.

1.  Basic fig
2.  Micromachine
3.  12" fig
4.  Playset
