7 degrees yesterday here in Southwestern NS. :D

The thrill of the hunt has gone from driving around to clicking around. One step closer to us becoming the blobs of gelatin floating around in electric chairs at the end of Wall*E.

Or should I say  :P

Scout Report / Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!

Will skip those completely I think.

For me, the resistance line can be described in one word: "GARBAGE".

Maybe.  you know what else was "garbage"?

I disagree. These were made 35 years ago and are about the same quality as the Resistance figures, so I don't think you can compare them.  I would bet my bottom dollar that the Resistance figures won't be going for anything near 50-100 times retail in 35 years, the way the Droids figures and vehicles are. Sure, a lot of that is nostalgia and supply-demand, but still, for their time, they weren't bad figures. Personally, I would love to have a complete set of Droids and Ewoks cartoon figures, and not for the value, but to personally enjoy them.

It's been a crazy winter here. We were about -15 Saturday night. It snowed early Sunday, then warmed up to about +11 and rained ton with lots of wind. Now, today, it is back to -10.

Make up your mind already! :artoo:

Wampa Cave / Re: Merry Christmas everyone!

For the first time in forever (sorry for the Frozen pun) I didn't get any Star Wars stuff for Christmas. In fact, I didn't have a present under the tree at all! I actually was quite sick and in the ICU for 6 days, and was discharged on Christmas eve. It was a good enough present just to be at home with my family for Christmas.

On the bright side, I am now essentially back to 100% finally, and I am anxiously awaiting the Barge (which, to be fair, was negotiated with my wife as a substitute for a Christmas present, so essentially it will just be a late gift).

Nice :)

I forgot to mention a pretty cool item my wife sought out - an 8 disc cd set of the original Star Wars radio drama put on my national public radio a good few years (pre-prequels, if I'm not mistaken).

They added a good number of scenes, including Leia with Bail on Alderaan.... nothing that completely collides with modern canon so it was a great listen! Thanks, Jodi!!! <3
Nice present, for sure. I have that set - it is great, very well done. I pull it out and re-listen from time to time. I have all 3 (ANH, ESB, ROTJ) - ROTJ was released much later, in 1996 rather than right after the films, as the first two were, and is much shorter. They are all great, though.

Star Wars and TV show together are exciting regardless, but this one could be cool. Looking forward to seeing what they come up with :r2d2line:

Wampa Cave / Re: Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz has passed away.

[ (I'm thinking of Han piling on stuff to 3PO and then telling him to hurry up as he doesn't have all day  :rollfloorlaffsmiley: ).
I love that scene! Poor 3P0 doesn't know if he is coming or going, as Han keeps tapping him with a new demand every time he is about to comply with the last one :artoo:

If I get down to the Parks,  will probably pick one up. The size makes it more attractive than the Hasbro version

Wampa Cave / Commentary on Solo: A Star Wars Story from Jon Kasdan
« on: September 14, 2018, 05:26:52 PM »
Read an interesting article today that referenced an even more interesting post on Twitter by Jon Kasdan, where he outlines over 50 behind the scenes things about Solo. I certainly enjoyed reading them. Take a look:

I just got Allainaces in the mail last week. I am travelling the next two weeks and hope to read it and a few other books.

It seems odd that they would have filmed scenes then that would fit now. Maybe they are really going to do CG, and they feel the CG is going to be so good no one will now the difference :speechless-smiley-004:

Wampa Cave / Re: Clone Wars is back !
« on: July 22, 2018, 09:37:17 PM »
Still working on season 4 here. It's slow going.  :indifferent0020:
Season 4 of Clone Wars?

I enjoyed most of the Clone Wars, but not all of it. I am looking forward to this story arc, though. Sounds like a great one!

Wampa Cave / Re: Lando is back!
« on: July 10, 2018, 08:09:44 PM »
I was so excited to think Lando was back that I never even considered these issues!  I hope they let him live - they have to throw us OT people a bone and let SOMEONE survive. Come on!

I am trying to wipe much of Episode 8 out of mind, so I kind of forgot about DJ. I was expecting him to have a very Lando-esque story arc. Interested to see where that goes now.
