Yeah, not often that happens... In Canada, the rights for distribution were acquired by Mongrel Media (Canadian company). In the US, rights went to Well Go, so they both had the option of releasing based on their own schedules. » 1/13/15 10:45am 1/13/15 10:45am

I've been keeping an eye on ebay with the intention of buying back a lost piece of my childhood... my 1980 Kenner tauntaun and Han Solo in Hoth gear. But this version may actually be a nice alternative. » 12/03/14 7:08am 12/03/14 7:08am

I still have a scar on my shoulder from where a lawn dart grazed me on the way down at 5 years of age. Probably missed my head by less than 3 inches.
