    Does anyone know if these chairs are child or adult size? I can't tell from the Target site.

    The ones that they used to have at WalMart were child size, but I am not sure about these ones. My guess is probably also child size but you never.

    I am all over those. I like the new packaging that they are going to start using to. It makes them easier to display without removing the figures from the box(which is like a sin, right Everett?).

    I'm really excited for those. I'm not much of a collector, but I'll get anything that's purely based on Luke and Leia, how they're twins, how they were separated, and how they found each other.

    Here's a question for all you post Jedi book readers, what did you all think of Vector Prime if you read it? I know the big spoiler from it already and am wondering if it is worth reading still.

    Yes, it is worth it. However, if you're going to go through the entire NJO series, don't feel obligated to read all of them. In fact, I'd skip straight from Vector Prime to Balance Point.

    Cool to hear. I have never been a fan of the NJO books but who knows maybe Vector Prime will bring me over.

    Not a problem. I am so looking forward to getting 2 of each (one to open, one to display)

    Josh,
    I don't know if you seen them or not but, the BX has ceramic Star Wars holiday ornaments. Thought I would pass that onto you. Could I have a look at your extra ROTS collector cards? You can send me an email if you want and we can talk about them.

    Now I have to stop at the BX after work. Thanks for the siting news. As for the cards, I don't know if you want me to just list all the extras I have or just wait and let you check them out for yourself. I also have two extra tins if you want them with each tins two extra cards. I went through the three packs in them but the rest you can have if you want. Just let me know how you want to do it. With all my doubles, you will probably just about have the full set of 1-99 which are the actually movie cards. I don't have as many doubles of the stickers, tattoos, foil cards, ect. that are also in the series.

    I've always wanted to get me a few of the holiday ornaments just never really got around to it. Hopefully this year I will. Who knows maybe they'll start selling some that are E3 related.

    I can stop by your house if that is okay and pick them up. Let me know. Did you find the ornaments at the BX? They are pretty cool.

    The ornaments aren't bad. I think I might go back and grab the R2 one. As for the cards, if you want to set something up for next week that works for me. I live right on base and am ussually home from work by 3. Tuesday is not a good day but any other would work.

    I just wanted to post that I recieved my Early Bird figures in the mail today. They are awesome. I love that they are set to the right heights. Chewy is much taller than Luke and Leia. That is one of the things that bugs me most with Wookie figures. They are bigger than everyone else and should be depicted as such. Now I have to decide if I am going to leave them wrapped or not. I know I should leave them in the packages but they are so tempting to open. It is probably my favorite Luke figure they have made to date.

    How does Wednesday sound? Let me know. I get off work around 4 and can stop by shortly after. Did you see the Boba Fett ornaments at the BX?

    My parents got me the Special Collector's Editon of the Chocolate Mpire figurines. The ones that came in it were Queen Amidala, R2-D2, and C-3PO. I am definately keeping them in their original package.

    They had Boba Fett ones. I didn't see those. They only had R2, Yoda and Vader. Maybe I will stop back by there after work today. And Wednesday works just fine for me. I am at 2420 D Eddy Loop in base housing behind the hospital. Let me know if you need further directions.
