Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Price Gouging Clonetroopers?
« on: September 4, 2003, 11:42 PM »
I picked up a set of the Green Clone Trooper 3-pack for $14.99 today at KayBee.  Not very cool, but these things are scarce.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Amazon has screen scenes 2
« on: September 3, 2003, 10:19 PM »
Series 1 has been in NY area stores.  I've seen them at least a couple of times now.

But, I'm yet another victim of Amazon cancelling the order for wave 2.  Why did they list them so early, and then go ahead and cancel so many orders?

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Your commute... How bad does it suck?
« on: September 3, 2003, 10:17 PM »
I've praised the day I stopped working in Manhattan.  That commute was terrible!  Even working off hours (6AM - 2PM), I had at least a 2 hour roundtrip commute.  And that was when it was fast!

Now, it takes me about half an hour.  Thankfully, I tend to work off hours, so it helps.  But working in Jersey as opposed to NYC has really helped my sanity level.  I feel much better now!

The funny thing about Bush's dog is this:  it doesn't walk when he wants it to.  He has to carry it all over the place!

Middle Earth / Re: Lord of the Rings Figures
« on: September 2, 2003, 03:00 PM »
The Merry and Pippen that come in this set are the same as the ones that came with the Moria Orc, in the FOTR packaging.  The Merry and Pippen that came out in TTT packaging are actually a different sculpt (just some different parts, I think).

The Frodo and Sam that come in the Fellowship 9-Pack are the ones from the Elven boat set.  I think those are probably the definitive Frodo and Sam.

Collector's Tips / Re: Collecting Star Wars autographs
« on: September 2, 2003, 10:21 AM »
I know that Christopher Lee has his own site, and sells autographed pics.  They go for 50 pounds each (about $75, I think).  Other actors will sign for free as long as you send the return postage.

I'm currently getting ready to send something out for the first time.  Someone passed along info for Ewan McGregor for me to use, and I'm going to send an 8 x 10" and a figure for him to sign.  I'm hesitant to pass it along, since the info was given to me by a good friend, and he seemed a little cautious about handing out the info.

Other Collectibles / Re: Unleashed Discussion Thread
« on: September 1, 2003, 10:16 PM »
I've really come to like this line.  It's a new, modern take on the characters.  It picks up where the 3-3/4" and 12" figure lines left off.

Does it have play value?  Not really.  But the sculpts more than make up for it.

The distribution has definitely been spotty.  I've had to weasle and weedle my way to get all of them.  This needs to get addressed.

I'm kind of curious to see where the line will go.  We know what's coming up for the remainder of the year, in terms of Yoda, Boba Fett & Han Solo.  Plus, there's the rumors of a second Boba Fett, Chewbacca and a Clone Trooper.

I guess I just want to know what's coming in the near future.  There's plenty of Jedi to pick from.  IMO, a Qui-Gon would be great, as would some of the Jedi from the arena battle.  I just wonder what other characters are good sources for this line.

JD Sports Forum! / Re: NFL 2003

Detroit may finally be coming around.  With this move, plus Joey Harrington and Charles Rogers, I think the Lions might finally turn some people's heads.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: She's blonde, and she's all mine - Pics inside
« on: September 1, 2003, 01:02 PM »
Well, it probably sounds better than my Japanese Telecaster, which I play through a 15 watt Vox amp.  Especially with that cool amp you've got pictured behind it.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Favorite Imperial Officers!

Captain Needa.  He actually seems to think that Vader will understand, and goes to personally apologise.  Nothing like being accountable!  ;D
