    I didn't see any of the Throne Room Duels- drat!

    I did pick up an extra Unleashed Boba Fett at Toys B Us. I think they had the Speeder Leia.

    Ok, went by Toys R Us last night. Picked up the Anain saber in a pak with 3 figures for $14.99. Didn't see any Unleashed figures, or much else. They had a few 3/4 figs, some Jedi and other 3-4 paks, and some 12" figures.

    Got the SW Insider last night. I want an Unleashed Clone Trooper! They had a list of the ones out and upcoming ones- man, they are getting better and better! If anyone finds a Hoth/speeder Luke or a Clone Trooper I'll be glad to trade my extra Boba Fett! I'm also on the lookout for the second wave of Clone Wars figs- if anyone see them give me a yell.

    Oh, they also said a 3/4 Admiral Ozzel is coming out this year. I wonder if it will come with a 6-pak of Natty Light? I've got a Superman figure that falls down whenever you get a 'kryptonite' magnet ring next to him. Man, I wish they'd do a 2-pak with Ozzel or other officers and a Vader with a magnet in his hand. You could get Vader near them and f-choke them!

    Just got back from the Target on Hickory Hill- I am now the proud new owner of the Throne Room Luke and Vader!

    They also have several of the Clone Wars 1st wave.

    Ran into a guy searching the HotWheels- he had'n seen any Batmobiles there, but saw some out in Bartlett at the SuperWalmart...

    Groovy- I'm off at lunch to check out the Target by Hickory Hill.

    Oh, keep your eye out for Hotwheels Batmobiles. They've got 3 or 4 different small ones, and 2 larger 1/18th scale '89 movie ones.

    I'm not- but John may be.

    I just got back from Target. Nothing new. I did pick up the jedi kids and a snowtrooper. They had a ton of the Clone Wars animated figs- 1st wave.

    No Batmobiles...

    Hey, Ben, got any Zoids you're still looking for? They have them on clearance at KB Toys in Raleigh Springs Mall. (The store is going out of business.)

    John: I stopped by the RiteAid and got that Boba you told me about. BTW- they close at 10pm, although they'll ask you to leave at a quarter 'til.

    I saw some more of the Clone wars toon figures at Target. I got all the second wave except for Yoda.

    Toys B Us had more of the Unleashed Obi, Han, Yoda, and Boba. Didn't see any Luke or Chewie.

    If anyone sees a non-toon Clone Wars Asajj Ventress figure let me know- oh, and a Clone Tropper single or set if there is one. I meant to pick up the Stormtrooper set the last time I saw them...

    It's official. I've been hanging out with you guys too long. I just realized that I was arranging Unleashed figures while cleaning my bedroom....no, Han can't be facing that direction 'cause it looks like he's trying to shoot Luke....

    ACK! I'm going to paint my nails now.

    Good thing I've only got the Leia and Padme unleashed figures, they can fight anytime....:)

    I finally came across the Throne Room Vader and Luke. Not very impressed with the Vader but got it anyways. The Luke on the other hand is pretty awesome. Cool action feature. Wish I could bring myself to open it so I could play with it.

    The only place I've found Star Cases is Tennessee Card Company. But I don't like spending nearly 3 bucks a peice on them when I could order them online for about 99 cents.

    www.wholesalecases.com

    It's worth it, I'd buy some more (lord knows I need them) but I've got to replace an idler arm on my little junky truck, gonna run me about 200 bucks parts and labor. And I just put some new rims in layaway at hubcap annie's, so I'm kinda thin when it comes to cash right now. I doubt I'll make it Sunday, going to the movies with my parents to check out this Passion of Christ movie. No new toys since my last post, but I have bought a few comics. Had to have some sort of reading material while I sat at Gateway tire for 4 HOURS waiting for them to tell me they'll have to replace a part before they can align the front end of my truck.......

    I hate it when it takes them three hours to tell you that can't do the work without replacing [enter car part here] first. And they never have crap to read that isn't hunting, fishing, or sports related, the coffee pot never works, and the TV only picks up channel 50, but only if you sit there and hold the antennae. (And you try anyway lest Betty Lou, sitting next to you with her bouffant hairdo and frosted lipgloss, will start to tell you her life story. Her WHOLE life story.) And then Leroy, fresh from his 10th smoke break since putting your car on the lift, comes out to give you the spiel that always starts with "Lookacheer". It all makes me really miss having a mechanic in the family.

    Sorry- Anytime I hear about anyone sitting around at a car shop I start to have flashbacks.

    Well it's not toys but it's definitly something we'd all like to have. I recently found my cd that has all the original starwars trailers. None of that special edition crap, I'm talking 1977 cheesy as crap star wars trailers. I love it.

    3 Star Wars
    3 Empire
    1 REVENGE (pretty cool)
    2 Return

    I feel as though I've found the holy grail.

    Dale- copies would make great Christmas presents... and a great opening to one of the drive-in movie nights!

    Got a new Killer Croc fig from my buddy Dave. His little brother told me he sees that one and other all the time in Memphis/Millington and has almost all the rare figures- Croc, Joker, Robin, and Mr. Freeze! I've got to hit more Walmarts...

    Got two prototype figures coming in from ebay- a Clone Trooper and Asajj Ventress!

    Have ya'll checked out the Clone Wars cartoons on Cartoon Network? The new ones start around MSC time this month. I'm really diggin' them!
