The Bullpen / Marvel Legends
« on: June 28, 2003, 12:06 PM »
I've always been much more of a Marvel fan.  Especially when it comes to the X-Men and several of their offshoot books.  I was also reading Thor, The Avengers, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Captain America...the list just goes one.

I read a few DC titles, but not much.  The Flash and Green Lantern were pretty much the extent of it.  I never really could understand the appeal of Superman, and I guess I missed the boat on Batman.

Other Collectibles / Re: Quesion about my E2 basic lightsaber
« on: June 27, 2003, 05:43 PM »
That, or they used the same tooling as in 1999.  Your 1999 stamped lightsaber very well could've been made in 2002.  However, Hasbro is probably unlikely to change a machine tool just to update the date stamp if they're happy with the existing design.

Well, there are some exceptions.  Oppo Rancisis is markedly different from most other aliens.  So was Yarael Poof.  I think Pablo Jill also has a fairly different anatomy, too.

Sounds like you need a squeegee!  At least I could make you laugh, Morg.  Can't do anything about the monitor though.

I'ma confessed sunglasses junkie.  I won't even go outside without a pair.  I saw the Smith glasses at Suncoast, but they were far too small for my bulbous melon head.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What else do you collect?
« on: June 27, 2003, 12:05 AM »
In terms of the other things I collect, I've gotta give props to Toy Biz this year.  They've really improved from their early days of hackneyed Marvel representations.  Just look at some of the Marvel Legends line, and the LOTR figures.  I'd argue that the LOTR Prologue Elf is one of the best basic figures I've ever gotten from any line.  And Sauron is right up there as a Deluxe.

And as for Marvel Legends, can you believe the fan base they've built?  It's incredible!

Is the Clone Trooper Lieutenant bust going to be there, too?

I know there's also the MOTU Keldor that will be at Comic Con and at Wizard World Chicago.

JD Sports Forum! / Re: Golf
« on: June 26, 2003, 11:52 PM »
I like disc golf.

I assume that's the same thing as "frisbee golf", right David?  If so, that's pretty fun, though I've only played it a couple times...

As for the real golf, Patty and I haven't touched our clubs in well over a year now, but the house that we just bought is in a neighborhood that has a "homeowner's association" (and corresponding monthly fee), but included in that is a 9 hole golf course throughout the area that we get to play for free anytime we want!  It's just a bunch of par 3's, but it's kept up extremely well and will definitely help fine tune our games to the point where we've got enough confidence to head out into public again to do the real thing!  Can't wait to move in!   8)

Sounds pretty cool!  I have a similar situation.  My dad is retiring, and moving to a community that has a pretty nice course.  I can get something of a deal on greens fees there, and I can stop in at his place for a drink on the course, since right behind his back yard is the 17th tee.  I'm gonna have to visit him a lot.  ;D

Dude, try barking up another tree.  I know far too many people who were directly affected by the events of September 11th.  Including a firefighter who was in the Trade Center when it came down.  Miraculously, he survived.

On the subject of racism, I believe in absolutes.  Meaning don't even assign racist slurs to the most evil of people.  And if you're willing to let the racial slurs fly with conditions, one can only imagine what your regular thought processes are.  I made a judgement call, and I still think it's uncool to use racial slurs.  Deal.

WOOHOO!  I just scored a set of these, along with the Droid Army 3-pack, and Destroyer Droid launcher.  I can't wait to get home and open them.
