Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: As expected... PEGWARMERS!
« on: October 9, 2003, 01:08 PM »
We're just finally getting better than average stocking levels on the Clone Wars line in the NY metro area.  It remains to be seen if the basic figures will be pegwarmers.  As for the army builder sets, they definitely made too many of the Destroyer Droid launchers.  That is definitely a pegwarmer.

The platform hangs over the edges of the POTF2 platform a little, but it holds in place.  I've had it sitting there for some time now.  Plus, the grappling hook will attach to the overhead bar.

As for the Yanks rocking Wakefield this season I seem to recall the Sox rocking Clemens, Wells and Mussina at least once each as well.

And Pettite too the last time he started against the Sox.

And its not as quite as lopsided as Nick thinks it is:

copied verbatim from todays Boston Globe

(Stats are against opposing team this year for each probable starter)

Mussina, 0-0, 3.04ERA, 23 2/3 IP, 13H, 7BB, 19K, .163Avg.
Pettitte, 3-1, 5.04ERA, 25IP, 25H, 4BB, 28K, .250 Avg.
Clemens, 2-3, 8.67ERA, 27IP, 28H, 9BB, 24K, .328Avg.
Wells, 2-1, 3.91ERA, 25 1/3IP, 31H, 9BB, 15K, .292Avg.

Wakefield, 2-2, 3.96ERA, 25IP, 20H, 13BB, 17K, .217Avg.
Lowe, 2-0, 5.55ERA, 24 1/3IP, 32H, 9BB, 9K, .317Avg.
Martinez, 1-1, 3.80ERA, 23 2/3IP, 25H, 5BB, 33K, .266Avg.
Burkett, 0-1, 3.27ERA, 11IP, 13H, 6BB, 6K, .289Avg.

Slight edge to the Yanks, but in no way lopsided.



What, you forgot to mention the game where Mussina was ONE PITCH away from a perfect game against to Red SoX?  For shame!

Hey, I spotted a ROTK packaged Aragorn/Gimli/Legolas 3-pack at a local comic shop.  It was priced too high there, but does anyone know if this is coming out to mass retail?

I'm also hoping at some point that the King Elendil - Gilgallad 2-pack from FOTR sees the light of day at some point.  Anyone ever see a picture of it?  And for that matter, what about a figure of Isildur?

Well, these sets are pretty cool if you're making a Death Star diorama.  The Luke & Leia fit somewhat awkwardly on the POTF2 lightbridge playset.  That's kinda cool.

It's still possible to get the Luke & Leia set and the Han & Chewy set at a pretty cheap price at KayBee.  The Vader & Ben set is tougher though.

Oh, and the Sox players with the Lilly things on their jackets were the picture of classy baseball?  Please.

It really sickens me to see this happen.  I was at Chicago, and the crowd around the Gentle Giant booth was like a rugby scrum.  And after going through that...I"M NOT PARTING WITH MINE.  It was too much trouble and too much hassle to get to just get rid of it for the money.  I don't need the money that bad.

I like the Nets.  I'll go ahead and say that I'm a casual fan, and I only got into them after they traded Stefan Marbury for Jason Kidd.

The biggest question I have is how is Alonzo Mourning going to fit into their game.  It should be interesting.

I also get the feeling that they may make some kind of move soon, since they're on the verge of releasing Dikembe Mutumbo.

Well, if there was a Sox-Cubs World Series, somehow I think both teams would find a way to lose.  Seriously.

The test starts tomorrow night.  The biggest question for me is who's starting game one for Boston.  I'm pretty secure in the Yanks starting pitching after the Division Series.  Most people are saying either Wakefiled or Burkett.  Well, the Yanks have rocked both of them on a number of occassions.  I see this being a 5 or 6 game series.

As for the National League, I'm pulling for the Cubbies.  But once it gets to the World Series, if the Yanks are still in it, I think everyone knows where my loyalties lie.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Work layoffs...
« on: October 5, 2003, 08:22 PM »
Yeah, I got laid off from a job in 1999.  Just in time for The Phantom Menace, in fact.

What did I do?  Well, I knew that it was coming.  So, I started planning, and I was talking with people before it even happened.  I let them know what was happening, and some were sympathetic and offered some freelance work.  I kept on developing contacts and got more work, and also lived off some of the severance package.  I was lucky in that the company owed me half a year's pay.  It helped during the lean times.  And so, I kept on developing contacts.  Some led to more freelance work.  And eventually, it led to the staff job that I have now.

Layoffs aren't the end of the world.  Especially if a company isn't financially healthy.  And, it could lead to a potentially bigger and better job.  That's what happened in my case.

I'm kinda surprised that the Twins didn't pinch hit for Doug Mankiewicz against Rivera.  He's killer against lefties.

From the images I've seen, the head on the Marvel Legends 3 maskless Wolverine is different from the one that comes in the X-Men set.  I've been trying to find an image of one, but can't right now.
