    I need to stop by Toys B Us soon. My sister wants the Yoda "Unleashed" figure.

    I always love to hear that other folks have rooms in their house dedicated to some form of sick collecting! Mine's 'the bat-cave'. Scary, huh? I got a lot of my bat-guanno from a buddy who had 'the bat-shrine'. He got married, moved, divorced, moved, married, divorced, moved- well, you get the picture. Every time he had to relocate I bought stuff from him, or had it given to me for helping him move.
    My Star Wars collection is mostly in boxes in the bedroom closet, or sitting on a couple shelves with my SW videos and books. I'll take a shot of what I do have, or maybe just the really cool or wierd stuff. I do have a couple Darth Vader appearance shots I took at the Fred's Super store when Empire first came out.

    Sal- do me a favor and shoot me your email address when you get a chance.

    Hey peoples I didnt have much luck finding any of the new stuff in Chi-town all I found was the Destroyer droid battle launcher [image=http://systems.figures.com/archives/images/95/51395.jpg] and 2 sets of the clone troopers 3 packs [image=http://systems.figures.com/archives/images/93/51393.jpg] but I did find the Kingdom Come Superman figure and some of the Justice League 10" figures! [note to self: STOP COLLECTING SO MUCH!]

    P.S. Tim I dont think the Yoda Unleashed is out yet... But if it is that wave also includes Unleashed Han and Boba Fett from ROTJ!

    Hey Sal,

    Glad your back. Thanks for sending me you addy and the shirt designs.

    When I was at Toys-B-Us the other day I saw some of the group boxes of figures- Imperials mostly I think. I have seen the BIG JLA figures (and have the Batman!). I also saw the new Batman line that was Sculpted by The Four Horsemen (same guys that did the latest He-Man figs). I've been waiting for this line to hit- and especially for the Joker figure. No such luck yet. It's all the funky paintjob and flipper ones! Ick! Let me know if you see the Joker, Robin, or regular Batman. I went ahead and picked up the Batman/Superman 2-pak.

    Hey Lin I have seen the Joker and regular batman and I had the batman in my buggie but i left him for the LOTR gift pack... They had them at the new Walmart here on Germantown PKWY. let me know if you want me to check for them since the store is right here close to my home.

    P.s. I have been looking for the Batman/Superman 2 pack where did you score those?

    I'll have to slide by the M.O.M. toys this week. At least I know what to look for, and that they're out there. I think I'm going to have to pick up the big Bats. I really dug Sal's new BladeII figure!

    Good hanging out with you and Sal on Saturday. Had a blast! The ride home sucked- was coming off that coffee-caffine buzz and had to pee at the same time- aaggh!

    Unfortunately, the four shots of espresso in my Caramel Macchiato didn't last too long for me, Lin. I knew I should have upped it to five. Traci called me at 1:10 am, which was at the exact moment I pulled into the driveway. She's not used to her husband running around town with the boys. Of course, knowing her husband and the boys are at toy stores and comic shops instead of Tiffany's or Platinum....

    That was only the second time I've been to a comic book shop. I'm glad we made the trip, because it forced me to start doing what I've needed to do for months now- start distributing promotional materials for the group. Maybe we'll gain some new members from the flyers and pens I passed out around town.

    I should've bought that Yoda lightsaber for Rachel.

    Geez, he makes me sound like a stalker. 8-}

    The only thing I worry about is the size of the Toys R Us bag that he'll bring home and where we're gonna put all the stuff, LOL.

    Nope- I only spent about 12 bucks at TRU, for once.

    Tim you know those 12 bucks you spent were all the singles you were throwing at the dancers. By the way did you wash off all that glitter that you had on your head?

    p.s. I dont think you killed that stripper by shoving all those bills down her mouth it was when I hit her with chair (I must learn the Heimlich maneuver)

    p.s.s. We need to keep Lin away from poles!

    If I were ya'll though, I'd wait for the 'special edition'- the added sounds of Sal screaming like a girl when he falls down this big hole is worth the wait!

    (Heh, heh, I said "big hole"...)

    I stopped into our local WAL-MART this morning and was able to get the Barriss Offee figure for Sherri and noticed the new Clone Wars figures, which are AWESOME. I didn't buy one though...I had to save that money for The Lion King DVD.

    I need to get that DVD, as well as Season 1 of 'Smallville' and 'Angel', and Season 4 of 'Buffy'! There's a few new horror DVD's that are out I need to snag, as well as some of the 'Stargate' ones.

    Well, looks like I'll be hitting Best Buy and Suncoast after Nightmarez is over!

    I saw a "Special Edition" of Killer Klowns from Outer Space at the big music and video store at Wolfchase and immediately thought of you, Lin.

    Those and the Kiss action figures at Spencer.

    I've got the Killer Klown video- but not sure if it's the special edition or not- I'll have to check.
