Hi Josh,

In regards to your statement that the TRU spam wasn't a big deal - you're right to a certain extent.

I have NEVER given RS my work email addy and sure as ****, I got that stupid TRU email.  The only time I EVER sent it was in a PM to Zod.

Are the PM's monitored?  I mean, can a mod or administrator read them if he/she really wanted to?  I'm thinking so.

And of course, I may be mistaken, but I can't recall signing up for a contest (when was the last time RS ever GAVE anything away?  And my sign up email is some POS hotmail account which I don't give a **** about in regards to spam...

BTW, if there is only one reason to come over here to JD, it's the ability to curse when you feel it's necessary!!   :P ;D :D ;) :)

While I'm excited to get the clone 3 pack, I'm not - these things can NEVER be found at retail.

I never found the CW versions - only the HORRIBLE turd that was the destroyer droid shooter thingy.

Man, when that Boba came out originally in 1997? I was really excited - now I look at it and I say "Wow, Boba has small ****** head!"

Little Chapelle's Show humor there....

Due on May 8th:

087-06-1489 - Collector Edition Stormtrooper/SW Articulated Super Clone Trooper
087-06-1490 - 5-pack Collector Cases

In light of recent developments ... how exactly does this fit with the 5-figure Battlepacks and the 3-pack Evolutions sets? Or are they all completely separate? ???

I almost forgot about the 3 pack evolution sets...were not these supposed to be available this Sat.?

The five packs have potential if they consist of figures everybody wants...really this work well with the OT.

-Vader with 2 stormtroopers, Motti and Tarkin would be neat.

-Hoth Luke with Hoth Han, Leia, Chewie and Reiken.

-Obi Wan with 2 clonies, droid, and Anakin.

-Dooku with Jango, Sidious, & two battle/super droids.

Man, I wish I worked for Hasbro!

Not to brag, but I was lucky enough to have a forum member sell me one of his that he found early for cost.

I will still go out on 4/2, but now I don't have to wait in line and risk the chance of not getting one.

As well, I know I won't have any luck finding clones, or the elusive regular DV - I am totally blown away by the fact that there is only ONE Darth Vader in the entire 3 3/4 ROTS line!!!

He is the focal point of this movie and the entire marketing campaign revolves around him - won't somebody please think of the children!!

Mark my words, this is the figure everybody will be clamoring for!

And on that note, please save some for the kiddies!  It always nice to see the kids get back into SW during a movie year....especially now that I have my own son who is only 2, yet loves to watch SW and begs to play with my Unleashed and Koto figures - only because he can't!

Here's the pic, hosted by me.

If I'm not mistaken, the price is kinda high - $14.99.

Is that the VOTC Vader?  Or is it just the cape that is throwing me off?

Edit:  And am I the only who was hoping for the top of the chamber?

Ruiner!  It's about time man!  A most welcome addition.


My main man Dressel!  Haven't talked to you since you know when.

Seems like a really cool place here; everybody is friendly and welcoming - I don't know how to react!

It works out similar to that if you manage to convince Walmart to take the Target Coupon... It'd be $4.24 - which is what I plan on trying.

I think it depends on the manager and how bad they want your business.  A lot of managers are really cool and others don't give a crap if you shop there or not.

It's like everything else in life - it's a crap shoot.

Ahhh, my fellow comrades all together...Cable, Zod and the guy that can't spell.   :P

I, too, received that TRU email at work and I am still wondering how the hell that thing got through our spamware and how RS even got it!!

I tell ya, that Wise character is making money hand over fist off of us - he's whoring us out!!


I have four of the Struzan posters framed in oak and hung in my office - still waiting on the AOTC and ROTS frames...I can post pics if anyone is interested!

BTW, is the coloring kind of dark on the displayable side of your ROTS posters?  The reversed side is printed perfectly while the flip side is really dark and just doesn't look right....??

Any word on when the "regular" will hit the market and become available for order?

I'm hoping to save some $$ by skipping the ultra rare mouse droid version! :D

Some of you may know me from RS and very few of you may remember the heated political discussions that went on between myself, Dressel, Zod, and others that may or may not be present here at JD.

Well, I just wanted to say "Hi" and so far so good.  The crowd seems to be a lot cooler here than other places and oh, BTW, how the heck do I add a custom avatar?

Do I have to reach a certain pinnacle of posts or something??

See ya around!

Hi -

Some of you may know from RS - I'm going to try to phase myself out from over there and make this my new home.

The mods suck over there and PW's attitude is getting out of hand...

I honestly believe that the Big H does not know what these EB figures will look like, otherwise we would have seen pictures. 

I also think that WM wanted an exclusive real quick like to counter Target's Lava Lamp Vader and this was the quick fix for Hasbro.

Cardboard backdrop with a plastic stand and off the shelf display case can be done very fast - can't believe they are selling us an empty box of air! :P
