Watto's Junk Yard / Re: A thread about concerts.
« on: October 15, 2005, 12:59 PM »
I'm eagerly awaiting my tickets to see Cream at Madison Square Garden.  I still cannot believe that I'm going to see this show in person.  I almost have to pinch myself!

Revenge of the Sith / Re: What about this Clone?

The original intent was to bring out Yoda's prankster streak.  But the movie is so dark at this point that any comic relief is really out of place.

Gentle Giant / Re: Gentle Giant Busts

You have to appreciate what Gentle Giant is doing from a collector's standpoint.  I think they realize the quagmire they've caused with such low production quantity limited edition pieces.  They also have to realize that they're not making ANY of that secondary market money.  So they might as well triple or quintuple the production runs.  At least the collectors are going to be able to get these pieces at a reasonable price.

This was definitely one of the more compelling images from the Official Site's most recent DVD article.  I'd be into getting a Clone like this.

Can someone help me out with Brady?  No way he makes the shelves here.

I'll do a trade or buy outright.

Brady looks like he's a pegwarmer already in CT.  You might want to hit the road Mikey.

I saw at least two sitting on a TRU shelf in Connecticutt this morning.  And I saw it quite a bit at KayBee when the ROTS line launched.

Made a couple of decent scores this weekend.  Got a Cooperstown Catfish Hunter (Yankees) and NFL 11 Tiki Barber.  Very cool scores, IMO.

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends
« on: October 2, 2005, 03:47 PM »
Got a chance to see ML 11 this weekend as well as the Sentinel series.  I'm waiting on the Sentinel series to show up at WalMart before I plunk down my hardearned.

The Legendary Riders are OKAY.  Not great per say, but OKAY.  Wonder Man and Hulkbuster Iron Man are probably among the best of the bunch.  I didn't particularly care for first appearance Thing...he doesn't look lumpy enough.  I have no interest in Vengeance at all.  I didn't see Ultron, but the pictures don't look good.  And as for the Days of Future Past Wolverine?  I still think it sucks.  Especially since I was able to see the Marvel Legends one in person and was then able to see the Marvel Select version a few minutes later.  Do yourselves a favor and leave this Wolverine on the pegs and buy the Marvel Select one.  It's much better.

I picked up a couple of Gondorians today.  Very cool figure!  Passed on the others for the time being.

Also managed to pick up some older stuff for a pretty decent deal, including the Pellenor Fields set, Council Legolas, burning Ring Wraith and Mount Doom Sam.

Here's hoping that the variant for the Nolan Ryan is the METS piece. That will make all 4 teams he played on then!!!

And here I was hoping for a version of Nolan with Robin Ventura in a headlock and punching him for charging the mound.  Oh well.

Nice lineup!  It looks pretty strong all the way around.  The only demand I have?  Fisk better be in his infamous "Stay fair!  Stay fair!" hop, making his way down the 1st base line in the '76 series.  And this is from a Yankees fan.

On that note though, it's great to see 3 of NY's finest in the lineup.  ESPECIALLY Jackie Robinson!
