Oh my goodness :o

I want as many of these as is humanly possible.

So, what did all you Winnipeggers start doing when the Jets left?  Become Oilers fans?

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends

That's possibly the weirdest Magneto I've ever seen.  Gotta be a factory mixup, because all of the Maggie's I've seen in the X-Men sets have faces pretty much like the Marvel Legends version.

On another note, has anyone here seen Marvel Legends 5 at retail yet?  I'm jonesing to get Collosus and Sabretooth.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What's spinning?

Of course I'm also getting a fair amount of the new Fleetwood Mac, and Norah Jones since that's what Patty's been listening to for the past 3 weeks...   :-\

Especially in the eyes of all the hard modern rockers that seem to be most Star Wars collectors these days...   :P


Ah, don't worry about this collector being too trendy as far as music goes.  The Norah Jones record is awesome.  And I've got plenty of other gems that people might not expect.  Warren Zevon's "The Wind"  has also seen plenty of spin time in my car's CD player.  What a way to say goodbye, and have all your cool friends like Springsteen, Tom Petty, Jackson Browne, Billy Bob Thornton and your son help see you off at the end of your musical journey.

There's also the perennial Miles Davis hanging around my CD player.  Usually one of my all-time favorite albums, "Kind Of Blue" (IMO, the greatest jazz album ever), or some Charles Mingus.  I usually lose a lot of people there.  But how can you deny that a title like "The shoes of the fisherman's wife are some jive-ass slippers" isn't the greatest song title ever?!

The hand is removable.  But, yeah, it should be a stump with some wires protruding.  But then, we couldn't have gotten that nifty  ;) repaint of this figure in the Imperial Forces 4-Pack.

It's varying between Radiohead's "Kid A", "Amnesiac", and The Flaming Lips' "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots"

TV-9D9 / Re: CLONE WARS Cartoon... Reactions

It re-airs at midnight, EDT.  Also, it'll be available to Hyperspace subscribers on the official site within a half hour or so.

I think the episode was decent.  However, the intro sequence ate up a lot of the showtime.

The voice actors seemed decent.  Yoda sounded good, and so did Obi-Wan.  I didn't think Palpatine was quite so good though.

It's playing at the local IMAX theater, so when I get a free moment I'm gonna see it there.  That'll probably be next week at the earliest.

Other Collectibles / Re: Unleashed Discussion Thread
« on: November 6, 2003, 09:47 AM »
I've been in on Unleashed since it began.  It's a great line.  Especially if you like some other toy companies, like McFarlane, Art Asylum, Mezco, etc.  It's a cool, modern take on the characters.

There have definitely been some misteps in the process, especially with distribution, and maybe the Darth Maul and Padme figures.  If Hasbro can find a way to get a proportionate ammount of Unleashed to market, I think they can do really well.  As things stand now, I think some are collecting Unleashed merely because it's been tough to get.

What is the name of the Gran pod racer?

I'll be getting the Obi-Wan to go along with my Jedi-Sith-Bounty Hunters-Droids theme for my 12" collection.  I'll be passing on the rest.
