  1. I don't remember the date for the Ep1 stuff, but the Ep2 stuff was released on April 23, 2002. I remember this because I went to the Monday Night RAW show in St. Louis on April 22 & got back home right after midnight, just in time to hit Wal-Mart & blow even more money. @smilepunch@
  2. I fear that GG & the wookiee will be the peg warmers, simply due to the case ratio for the Wal-Mart display tray that popped up last night here in C'Dale, IL. R4-G9 x 3 Tion Medon x 3 Grievous x 7 Wookiee x 7 And this store got 5 cases total. 15 each of the droid & Medon, but 35 each of GG & the wookiee. Oy vey.
  3. A little bit longer than a week, but the missile got here today. And I called the day I posted about it. 11 days, not a bad turnaround.
  4. Great deal man. As for the missile, just call Hasbro's customer service #: 1 (800) 327-8264 between 7:30AM-5:30PM (EST, I think). That's what a friend & I have both done. Should be getting them sometime next week.
  5. No they're not. The OTC line is done with (including the VOTC & other related stuff like the Falcon) so all of that is being clearanced out. The Titanium series is (I believe) exclusive to Wal-Mart at this moment, so they're obviously not dropping the line. Plus they're already getting the POTC, newest Galactic Heroes & the third batch of Clone Wars animated figures. All of which I've seen in the past 24 hours at local Wal-Marts. The people who come up with these ridiculous rumors do it just to see who's gullible enough to believe them so they can get their jollies. Truly pathetic losers is what the rumor-creators are. There's no way in hell any of the major retailers are going to stop carrying a line as major as Star Wars until it's time for it to completely dry up after the movies are done with (hopefully not for a while though).
  6. You mean Yoda/Clonetrooper. The only Stormies are in a 2-pack which is currently shipping with waves 3 and/or 4.
  7. That's wave 4 actually. And they popped up here in Southern Illinois as well. Wave 1: Classic Trilogy packs Wave 2: Episode II packs Wave 3: Bounty Hunter packs Wave 4: What you listed #US1#
  8. Roughly between 16 & 17". Give yourself a 17" wide (and deep) space & you should be fine.
  9. Yep, I got the shipping notice last night. Supposed to be here between Tuesday & Friday. Right on time. #US1#
  10. Just got the final one today, but haven't had time to open it yet.
  11. I like the concept, but those 2-packs would definitely need to be switched up. As Dragonrider said, we wants armies of Stormies. I'd say these would be better breakdowns... Case 1: 2 packs per case of: Han & Chewie Luke & Leia Obi-Wan & Vader R2-D2 & C-3PO Stormtrooper & either Stormtrooper, Imp Officer, TIE Pilot or DS Gunner Jawa & 2 various droid (R5-D4, mining droid, R1-G4, CZ-3, DS Droid, Gonk) Case 2: 1 pack per case of: Han & Chewie Luke & Leia Obi-Wan & Vader R2-D2 & C-3PO 4 packs per case of: Stormtrooper & either Stormtrooper, Imp Officer, TIE Pilot or DS Gunner Jawa & 2 various droid (R5-D4, mining droid, R1-G4, CZ-3, DS Droid, Gonk) This would help cut down on the potential peg-warming of the regular character packs wihle also helping to get more army builders out there. And with the Jawa pack having 2 different droids it would help sell that one as well.
  12. It's also online over at www.starwars.com for your viewing pleasure. I still haven't caught the Wal-Mart one though.
  13. Yeah, that's the Emperor's Wrath Vader (the one that had the glow-in-the-dark skeleton) mold. It's been used in the Imperial Forces TrU 4-pack, the Silver Vader & the "Hoth" Vader. It's a helluva a good Vader too.
  14. Yep, I hear ya. I was watching this & thinking "Damn, and I thought Excel Saga & FLCL were messed up." Definitely something very...bizarre. What do ya think the creators were smoking? @loll@
  15. Yeah, I caught most of it. Pretty cool. I like the soundtrack quite a bit (as well as the regular series). The one that aired on CN was the original OVA that introduced Yomiko Readman. It kind of set up the premise for the actual series which is airing on G4TechTV. I like 'em both so far. And again, the music is pretty good. I'm finding myself saying that about quite a few animes of late. @hmmm@
  16. Damn, they're hitting already? Jeezum Crom, I'm supposed to be packing stuff up to move, not buying more. @firedevil@
  17. Lando & C-3PO are out. Found mine at the TRU in Marion, IL. They had at most 4 of each over a 3 day period this past weekend. So they are starting to pop up. Now, bring on the ROTJ crew. @firedevil@
  18. This was a very "horror movie" type issue. Entire population missing, shadowy beasties attacking rescuers, etc. Very nice feel, IMO. As for Marissa Fairborne, she was in season 3 of the cartoon & is the daughter (although they mentioned her grandfather?) of Flint from G.I. Joe. It's a very nice nod to the fans of both shows. #US1#
  19. Holy mother of pearl! I knew it was huge, but I didn't expect this.... Balrog v. Gandalf the White! Man, that's a thing of beauty. @firedevil@
  20. Outsiders, where in Illinois are you? I know prozac is in the area near St. Louis. I'm in Carbondale (a couple hours south of St. Louis) & the Marion, IL TRU just got these in this weekend. Not too bad of a set. I might get this one.
  21. Yep, at the TRU in Marion, IL he rang up $24.99. I got him since I never had the original. I didn't see Sideswipe though.
  22. Oh bloody hell. I think I just heard my wallet let out a cry of pain. @smilepunch@
