Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Vintage OTC Figures

That's on the clamshell that's holding the card, and not the card itself.

I fish, too.  Not as much lately, but it should be a good summer with my Dad retiring and getting a boat.  I'm looking forward to going for some fluke and bluefish this summer.

Now that's a valkyrie.

Too bad Toddy went back to their old ways of minimal articulation. (As if they ever left.)

But, they're pretty cool anyway.

This is like a nerd fantasy gone horribly wrong, but in kind of a gross way.  :o

I know it way too well.  And the reality?  Ray Lewis is one of the most sought after players in all of Sports Picks, the same as Urlacher.

Actually, it looks like we're going to get a new model Jedi Starfighter.  As for the Clone Troopers, I think we might see a new helmet design based on the Insider article.

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends

I didn't really take issue with the X-Men box set.  There are different head sculpts on Wolverine and Magneto, Beast has all of his accessories, Gambit has a different accessory set, and Rogue is all new.  The Urban Legends set bothers me more, since all it was were 3 repaints and the Punisher with different accessories.

Jeez, how did I miss this thread today?  Hey, do we have any Houston area JDer's out there?  I'm jonesing for that Clemens/Bagwell Fan Fest set!

The NFL 8 figures definitely look nice.  But once again, there isn't a single defensive player.  I've known the lineup for a while, but it still irks me that McFarlane won't give guys who play D their props.  Defensive players have been some of the best selling of the NFL line.

 Still need to go back and get a Vader too, the collection doesn't look right without one :).

I also need to pick up Vader.  I have the one with the helmet on with the bridge/steps but I need the helmet off one with the rock(at least I think it's a rock).  I am also glad though, about the re-release of Leia as she was packed in with rock Vader and were either underproduced or sold extremely well.

The Vader is actually posed in what looks like the base of his meditation chamber.

Just to play Devil's Advocate here...How many '03 reissue figures are you seeing?  I'm referring to the figures that were listed in the late 2003 line.  Frankly, I don't see many of them at all.  I'm not seeing too much of the Hall of Fame wave sitting around for very long, either.  Is anyone else seeing this stuff warm the pegs?

This was a popcorn movie, pure and simple.  I saw it last night, and it was alright.  Not the best thing I've ever seen, but not the worst either.  I'm begining to like Kate Beckinsale more and more, that's for sure.

I kind of knew what to expect going into the movie.  After all, this is the same director as "The Mummy" and "The Mummy Returns".  Both were reasonably predictable and slightly campy.  Is that bad?  I'm not sure.  I think that depends on your tastes.  If you want to go to the movies and have some fun with something that's less than cerebral, then check it out.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Endor Wave
« on: May 14, 2004, 08:18 PM »
Haven't opened them yet, anyone else found them???

I lucked out.  A friend of mine found a couple of sets at a local store and picked the wave up for me.  I like the Lando the most.  Nicely done!  Madine ranks second for me.  The arm articulation is nice, and I like the figure overall.  I'm somewhat indifferent about the Han Solo.  It's good, but the freak collector in me knows it's kind of a kitbash.  But hey, I'll take a new figure over a reissue any day.

Did you notice this in their news post?

Distribution of this summer's exclusives will be as follows:

Comic Con International San Diego - July 21-25, 2004
Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise - 400 pieces allocated for every full day; 200 pieces allocated for Preview Night
Spirit of the Rebellion 4-pack - 600 pieces allocated for every full day; 300 pieces allocated for Preview Night

Wizard World Chicago - August 13-15, 2004
Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise - 400 pieces allocated for every full day
Spirit of the Rebellion 4-pack - 600 pieces allocated for every full day.

The remaining quantities of each piece will be made available exclusively online to members of Gentle Giant's Collector's Club after the shows.

The following measures will be in effect in an effort to make the exclusives as widely available as possible:

Exclusives will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Exclusives will be limited to one of each per adult.
Badges will be punched with a Gentle Giant logo for purchases of Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise. Attendees with punched badges will not be allowed to purchase additional exclusives.


I hope they learned their lesson last year.

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.
