Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Are there any products you endorse?

If given the opportunity, there are a number of pieces of musical equipment I would endorse.  They include instruments, strings, amplifiers and speakers.

Pretty sure I have an extra from my case, Scott.  You need?

Too bad Vince Carter came out before he got traded to the Nets.  Oh well.

I think my irony was lost in that post.  Drat.  :-X

I've seen the new Spiderman classics wave that has the Sandman in the wave.  Of course, no Sandman to be found.  Oh well.

Hamma's lame.  The guy gets eaten by a Warg before the Rohirrim even make it to Helm's Deep.

Looks like you got it.  I checked the scores again today, and the score I gave you last night was short by 1/100th of a point, so you increased your margin by that much.  I'm glad it was a tight week.  Too bad I didn't start Kerry Collins though... :(

Not sure where you got those numbers, but my Stat Tracker came up with the following final:

Nicklab's Nucklehead's:  43.46

The Zod's:  45.84

Congrats, KBZ!

I saw the Sam, but I passed.  I want pretty much everything else in that wave except him.

Ah, you grasped my point exactly, Scott!  The whole thing turned into a "dig me" exhibition.  But some people will probably still not accept that this piece is a promo, and continue to get agitated.

Something NOT so cool from GGS:

Chrome Sandtrooper for "friends & supporters" only 200. >:(

Here's what I wrote in that thread:


This piece is a promo, pure and simple. I know a lot of people are upset about this, but this sort of thing does happen in the toy and collectible industry quite often. Fact is that there are "promo" versions of even the limited pieces that companies like Gentle Giant, Attakus and Master Replicas put out. These can number in the low hundreds, and they're typically not numbered pieces in a limited edition. These things go out to dealers, media and peers in the industry.

I know someone at a major collectible company, and he routinely gets things from other toy and collectible manufacturers well before they hit the market. Case in point, he's had the ROTS preview wave for at least a month. This is a standard thing that happens within the toy industry.

Why has this situation blown up? Because of the fact that information about these pieces has been leaked to the general public. While I can appreciate any business giving out Christmas gifts, this should have been handled more delicately. How? Gentle Giant should have only given this piece out with the stipulation that it not be publicized by the media outlets it was sent to.

Might I get flamed for this post? Sure. But please take the time to read what I wrote, and view it objectively, not irrationally.

Good luck to you and the Zods.  Enjoy Florida too, and Happy Holidays.

I've heard reports that the new TTT figures are showing up, but I haven't seen them yet.  I also just recently got the new ROTK wave with Gorbag, Denethor, Citadel Guard & Prologue Smeagol.
