Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Gas Prices
« on: May 14, 2004, 02:41 PM »
I paid $1.89 a gallon today in New Jersey.  This is the highest I've EVER seen gas prices in NJ.  I can only imagine what the rest of the country is like, because NJ has some of the lowest gas prices nationally.  The lowest price I saw yesterday in NY state was $2.08 a gallon.  It's really getting out of hand.

Today, I add A-Rod & Mariano Rivera to my list.  With as many Yankee games as I've been to over the past few years, this is the first time Mo has come in to save a game I've been to.

Also, forgot to mention Wade Boggs.  I saw him play on the '96 Yanks while on business in Toronto.

Just got back from the Big Ballpark in the Bronx!  The Yanks took it to the Angels in style, knocking three out of the park courtesy of red-hot Ruben Sierra, Bernie Williams and Hideki Matsui.  Jon Lieber had a no-no going into the 4th, but the Yanks came back in the next inning.  And when Mariano trotted in from the bullpen to "Enter Sandman", it was a thing of beauty.  Yankees win!   Thu-uh-uh Yankees win!!!!!!!!

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Honda Accord: Anyone drive one?
« on: May 13, 2004, 11:36 AM »
My family has had a number of Accords.  They've all been great, and extremely reliable.  I own a Honda currently, but it's a CR-V.  Still a really reliable car.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Hall of Fame R2 question...
« on: May 11, 2004, 11:38 AM »
While many collectors would find the CommTech R2-D2 more desirable, the real reason why certain figures get rehashed over others is a little more complex than what collectors want.  So, why did we get this R2?  It was most likely because of factory issues.  Different factories produce different figures, and also have different tooling.  

In the case of most of the Hall of Fame wave figures, there was an effort to consolidate production to as few manufacturing plants as possible.  Hence, we've gotten the POTJ R2-D2 instead of the CommTech one.  Likewise, we've also gotten the POTF2 "All New Likeness" Princess Leia instead of the POTf2 CommTech version.

This is WAY too high.  Especially for loose pieces.  Even moreso since I traded a Dengar for an SA Clone Trooper yesterday, retail value for retail value.

One thing to consider is that the seller may actually have friends who are bidding on the auction to drive the price up.  This sort of thing happens on eBay all too often, and it's almost impossible to track.  It's because of things like this that I don't use ePay.

A paper route.  I got it when I was 13, and did that for a couple of years.  It was fine in the warm weather, but trudging around in the snow was NOT fun.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: TRU Naboo 4 Pack
« on: May 7, 2004, 05:18 PM »
I have two Fambaas and they are opened.  If you ever decide to sell 1-2 of those, let this Wookie know! ;)

 :P

I'll take it under advisement, but beware when I get a real house and start making SERIOUS dioramas!  I might put Niub Niub to shame with the Battle of Naboo.  I have at least 40 - 50 assorted Gungans, a few extra Captain Tarpals, the Gungan cannons and I've even got a few Ammo Wagon's & AAT's, too!  And I haven't really talked about my Battle Droid army much.

So, let me get this straight:  Hasbro can't simply BUY a vintage Clound Car on the secondary market, take it apart and develop a mold from it?  Lame and cheap, IMO.

I would certainly hope that the General Veers would come with a small, holographic Darth Vader similar to the small, holographic Darth Sidious that came with the Count Dooku figure.  That seems to make the most sense.  Otherwise, I think we'd just be getting another ordinary Darth Vader.

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends
« on: May 5, 2004, 05:41 PM »
I just got the Mecha Hulk from wave 2 of the new Hulk line.  WOW!  This is one of the best figures I've bought in a while!  It's a heavy duty piece of plastic, and there's serious articulation and detail.  Throwing in a little Gargoyle to ride around inside is an added bonus.  Now I have to find the Absorbing Man.
