Doh!  Here I was hoping you might have a white Alstott, black McAllister or blue pants Alexander.  Drat!

Other Toy Lines / Re: McFarlane Led Zeppelin & Jimi Hendrix
« on: October 13, 2003, 09:41 AM »
Yeah, I think you're right.  I'm pretty sure Mitch Mitchell played with Jimi at Woodstock, but I think Noel Redding had left the band by then.  I think Billy Cox played bass with Jimi at Woodstock.  Still it would be sweet to have the entire Experience band as a set.

I'm also wondering when we're going to see the Led Zeppelin figures.  I hope they do the whole band, and don't just do Page and Plant.  That would just suck.

I've got most of Hendrix's catalog.  But don't be advocating downloading, Brad.  It is stealing after all.  And as a musician, I'm acutely aware of just how much money downloading costs artists who are just scraping by.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: 3 new Screen Scenes?! Your guesses...
« on: October 13, 2003, 06:55 AM »
I'm just quoting myself from another thread here:


I'm certainly hoping that the multi-packs listed are Screen Scenes.  I think these have been reasonably successful items.  The Trash Compactor is nowhere to be found, and the Jedi Council and Geonosian War Chamber don't tend to hang around on shelves for too long.

A third Jedi Council set would be most welcome in my collection.  Having a Shaak Ti you can seat would be a nice bonus.  And since she's in the AOTC version of the Council, a seated Coleman Trebor would be cool, too.  A third member?  Perhaps a softgoods Plo Koon.

The Naboo Final Battle screams the Darth Maul/Qui-Gon Jinn/Obi-Wan kenobi duel to me.  I could see these released as two sets.  One with Qui-Gon dueling Darth Maul.  The second as Obi-Wan trapped behind the energy barrier, watching helplessly.

A Pit of Carkoon Screen Scene is a little puzzling to me.  It seems that it could be any of a number of things.  I'd be genuinely surprised if it's our heroes from the Skiff.  The only other settings I could see as likely candidates are the Sail Barge deck, with gunners, guards & Luke.  The other would be in Jabba's chamber on the Sail Barge, with his various alien hangers-on and C-3PO watching through the blinds.  Not terribly exciting stuff, though.  My money would be on the Sail Barge deck, as it might integrate with the POTJ Deluxe Leia's Sail Barge Cannon.

Just my two cents worth

Jimmy, I can see how you might be right regarding the TIE Fighter listing.  I'd be very surprised if Hasbro released two distinctly different TIE Fighters in the course of two years.  I'm just curious how long you've had the info floating around.

Jimmy, you're one of the good guys out there.  I know enough about Mike after seeing him hang around with SirSteve in Chicago.  He's certainly not high on my list of individuals with tremendous ammounts of integrity.

The one thing that's interesting about this list is that it fills out some of the waves.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Major DVD Release List for Fall '03

I'll be at Best Buy right after work on Tuesday.  Got a gift certificate to use and everything for my Matrix Reloaded DVD.  I'm wondering what the bonus features are going to be like.

As much of a die-hard Yankee fan as I am, if it comes down to the Yanks and the Cubs in the series, and the Cubs win, I can live with that.  They've had a long enough drought in my opinion.

I would not be able to live with the Red Sox coming back in this series to beat the Yanks.  Then, I'd become either the biggest Cubs or Marlins fan going.  Anything to keep the Red Sox from winning it all.

I've seen scattered reports of these showing up in the NY area.  Haven't seen them yet, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pack Green Standing Spotted
« on: October 12, 2003, 09:56 AM »
While I'm all in favor of getting a standing version of the Clone Trooper sergeant, all I can say is UGGGGHHHHHHH!

I've only been able to get the white set, a few blue sets, and two green sets as is.  No sign of the yellow or red around here yet.  This is getting intolerable.  I don't want to resort to ordering online, but I might have to cave in.

Can you believe we might have a Cubs-Yanks World Series?  Wow!  It's an awesome proposition.

Collections / Re: dustrho's collection
« on: October 12, 2003, 07:27 AM »
Chris, I love the collection pages!  I'm just like WOW!  Your army building may put me to shame.

I also love that you've got some Micro Collection stuff in there.  That's always been one of my favorite segments of the vintage line.  I only wish I had some of those.  Especially the Carbon Freeze Chamber.  

Also, I think it's cool how you lined up your vintage bounty hunters with the modern versions.  Nice touch!

Add in the bonehead groundskeeper in the Yankees bullpen who wasn't enough a professional to keep his fandom under control, and that's what led to the fight in the bullpen.  Supposedly, both Jeff Nelson and Karim Garcia could now be facing assault charges because of what this clown started, and Garcia hurt his hand in the process!

Good lord, what a wild game!  It was more like a circus than a baseball game, IMHO.
