    I need to save up for a Eowyn Costume. Yet I'll be sure to save for the Toy Fair aswell.

    I need a man servant to carry around my stuff though :p

    If you look up 5 posts from this one, you wrote that you were going to Toy Fair. I assume you meant the toy show as Dad has explained. Toy Fair is a toy trade show in NYC so I was surprised when you said you were going to Toy Fair.

    Well I do have a small update to pass along. I spoke to my Hasbro rep neighbour and he is reporting that there should be a small trickle of tri-logo Clone Wars toys available this fall from Toys R Us. Hopefully the toy situation should start to improve by next spring. Wal Mart has dropped the line for now but will pick it up again as EPIII approaches...

    I do not know if the blue starfighter made it to retail stores in Canada but you can
    pick one up at Silver Snail for about $30.
    It is in Saga packaging and it comes with
    an Obi Wan figure...

    Just a heads up, The General Store, that weird boutique store full of stalls for other business has a large section of Figures, including:
    aalya Secura
    Teebo reissue
    Taun We and Clone Kid
    Yoda and Bear Clan member
    Padme/Anakin/Kenobi from the release era

    And a bunch more. 14.99

    Burlington location anyways. Don't know about others.

    Oh, and my loose figures are almost all sorted and bagged with their bits, Mike, do you want first crack at them? Would you rather a list or just a sampling at a time to ponder?

    I thought that I would post this here for
    folks to read today:



    As I think of you all
    tears fall from my face.
    Remembering that day
    so much grief so much waste.

    How strong you all were
    in the weeks and months to follow.
    Courage, dignity, and strength
    through the pain and the sorrow

    The fire, port,and policeman
    working all day and all night.
    such heroes there have never been
    it was an unspeakable sight.

    Brought us much closer
    as today we reflect.
    On a city that is reborn
    9 11 I will never forget.

    Sorry Dad,

    So far all my US buddies has only found me the Jedi Knight 3 pack (finally). They're still working on finding me the Jedi Council sets. As for the Clone Trooper 3 packs, those have sold very well. And it seems like the one with the Green Clone Trooper has been garnering a lot of attention.

    The zgenosian fighter and Haifire droids are starting to appear at Target stores in the US. Silver Snail should be getting them in
    the coming weeks. They will probably be selling for $40- $50 CDN....
