I'm sure if I would count Vlix. Was he officially released?
Yes, but only in Brazil. I think most people don't count him due to how rare he is when they say they have a complete collection.

Anyone left alive or did the Zombies get to everyone?


Yikes..is that a pic of the poor folks in the Gulf?? The more PR I see on the tele I can't help but wonder what the attendance at CV will be.....


RATS?? Was that the Dome? Glad to hear something positive on this thread.....made the rounds this past week for openers and found nothing but empty pegs...very depressing times. ~Looking forward to the Vintage line OH SO MUCH!!

"Iron Man" R2 is very cool.


Peace to all.

Thanks for the news.

Does anyone have a copy of the 20th Century Fox fanfare in wave format?

I've been looking for it with little success. Yes, the opening part of Star wars is what I'm lookin for. in WAV format. I want to have my PC start up with that sound instead of what I've got.

Just download a format converter program, there are a bunch that are free or free for a trial period. Just google it.

The Vader Project....there's a new version coming to C5. It's all the rage now I guess.
CV will be the debut exhibit of the 501st TK Helmet Project for Make-A-Wish.

We've gotten some really neat submissions so far.

The earthquake did not affect my collection at all. The kids (who were home today) said they didn't feel a thing.

I felt it...and it was a doozy.

anyone know where I can print a PDf of an Out of Print book? Does the whole copyright thing come into play when it's so out of print you can't buy it anywhere?

Well, just don't put it on a shelf.
Tables, floors, walls if possible are fine.

Henrietta had vintage figures out today. Found a 4-LOM (should have been labled Zuckuss) at Henrietta TRU. Bubble trashed. Whats up with the $9.99 price? Thought they were supposed to be cheaper. The CM person said there were 3 left but I didn't see the other two. Cool to see vintage stle cards in a store.

They had the new Legends & CW figures out as well. Didn't seem to be anything new in the CW wave. Strange to start out a new line with repeats.

BOTH TRU's had the new figs. but when I got there, they were all gone except a lone Vader. The CW figs and legengs figs filled the pegs with repeats.

anyne know if these are showing up in other stores too?

Only TRU so far...and at the higher price.

4-LOM should NOT be named Zuckuss...he is 4-LOM ("el-oh-em").

The convention vintage deco 2-pack will address the incorrect names from the Kenner days.
