Yeah, the Hulk and X-Men lines died a quick death.  Too bad for the Hulk line, since there were a few good things in the mix.  I'm kind of disappointed that they didn't make a decent grey Hulk other than Joe Fixit.  While that's a notable part of the grey Hulk's saga, I kind of liked the period right after the grey Hulk re-ermerged.  Especially the issue where he fought Wolverine.  I hope they at least revisit that incarnation of the Hulk in Marvel Legends.  As cool as the Marvel Select grey Hulk is, I don't think it's a good rendering of the Hulk from the period I'm mentioning.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Has Anyone Built a Deck Before?
« on: June 16, 2004, 05:19 PM »
There are actually some manually operated drills/augers that you can use to dig post holes.  There are also some specialized shovels for doing that, too.  The tricky thing is this:  how deep does your town's building code require you to get your posts & concrete or cement?  The deeper you have to go, the tougher it's going to be.  Be sure you check the town's building code to get the proper depth.

As for the deck itself, I recommend nails over using screws for securing the planks to the joists.  Nails are a lot faster, whereas screws are more labor intensive.  You also might want to consider an adhesive coated nail for a more secure joint.  A pneumatic nail gun will speed this process up immensely.  If you don't have one and don't want to buy one, you can probably rent one.  You may be able to rent an auger as well.

Or is it Yahoo's 2 gigs of virtual memory for $20 a year?

Well if people really want a Black Cat figure, they can always go for the Marvel Select version.

And now, unfortunately, Detroit may burn and suffer through a riot.  Why does that sort of thing always tend to happen in these midwestern cities after championships?  Chicago (Bulls), Detroit (Nasty Boys era), Columbus (Ohio State)...what gives?

I can't believe I'm seeing this?!  As much as I hate the Pistons for eliminating the Nets, I'm glad they took down the Lakers!

Tough.  You could ask your buddy if you like.  Too bad we had to revoke his store report priveleges because people ratted him out for being a scalper.


Although I don't think that compares with the creepiness of your stalking tendencies.  Like asking said scalper where I work and live.

I saw them today.  They look alright, but I can't understand why they're doing this series now.  When is the movie due out after all?  And then there's the matter of the toy line for the movie as well.

Hey, Nicklab, that person in your club (in the NJ/NYC area, right) might have seen the OTC stuff at Toy Tokyo.  They had the firrst waves there about 2 weeks ago.

Sorry.  That info is from the collector's club I belong to.  We try to keep that kind of info exclusive to our members & contributors.

Google's IPO and/or email system would be my guess.

I haven't seen any yet, but someone in my local collectors club saw something at a store that led everyone to believe that the OTC figures are showing up.
