I saw some of these at a couple of stops on the way home tonight.  They're cool.  I might even get some for my 3 year old nephew!

FINALLY!  Found some VOTC figures tonight.

How do you really feel, Ben?   :P

That's a bummer, but not terribly surprising considering it was Amazon.  They usually just throw their figures in a box, and toss one or two of those large "air pack" thingees, and that's it.  I would never go Amazon if I was shooting for something MOMC.  I was hoping that at least the VOTC plastic clamshells would at least be able to absorb most of the shipping truama though.  Guess not.   :-\

Mine actually arrived in pretty good shape.  Amazon stuffed quite a few of those air pillows in the carton, and they were all snug as a bug in a rug.  No visible dents in the clamshells.

JD Sports Forum! / Re: NBA Offseason
« on: July 15, 2004, 01:06 AM »
Honestly, the only things I care about this NBA offseason are these things:

-That the Nets don't have to play the Heat much

-That the Nets are able to re-sign Kenyon Martin

-That Jason Kidd's knee surgery goes well

Beyond that, I think the only other thing of interest is if some team is going to seriously pursue Kobe even while he's going to be on trial for rape.

My guess is that it's yet another OT DVD promotional tie-in.  My guess would be TRU, since they got the silver R2 and Clone Trooper.  As things stand now, the Silver Sandtrooper is the Fan Club's domain.  I can't see them taking on another silver exclusive figure so soon.

Don't get me going on Bruins Bourque.  I picked one up for a friend and didn't know the value of what I was giving him.  I did the same with a Ducks Kariya.

One question for those of you who have Dagobah Luke.  Can you pose him like when he's trying to raise the X-Wing from the swamp?

Well, I got my Dagobah Luke and opened him last night.  In fact, I've got the figure sitting in front of me right now.  I think it's possible to straighten out the handstand hands for the X-Wing lift.  I believe it's just a matter of boiling those arms and straightening out the hands to a more neutral position.

I guess I'm kinda glad that stuff showed up out in Tennessee after I left, 'cause how the hell would I have carefully transported 20 (actually double that) figures back to Cali?   :P

So does your floor look like this now Jamie:



At least I beat your ass to the VOTC goodies!   :P

What is that, the periodic table of OTC?

I gotta agree with Jeff, nothing beats the MN State Fair Curds.  Although fresh curds in Wisconsin are pretty dang good (and squeaky)

There are four major food things at the Fair, the Curds, Fresh Cut French Fries, the Dairy Building with Milkshakes and Ice Cream Sundaes and Buckets of Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Oh..and women carved out of butter



This is so totally screaming "butterface joke".

It's from series 1 of the initial Spiderman Classics line.  The packaging is the same as the Marvel Legends packaging.

I always thought it was kind of ridiculous myself.  Being born and bred in NY, you get used to the NY deli fare.  That's all the "smoked meat" in Montreal was, just with a strange, different name.
