Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Reunions or Concerts that will never happen
« on: August 27, 2003, 11:10 PM »
Im not talking about circumstances such as death that keep a band apart.  But what groups out there will never get back together or tour again?  One band is Pink Floyd.  I came to grips last year that they are no more, whether with Waters coming back or without him.  Pink Floyd was by far the greatest concert experience of my life.  I saw them once in 1987 and three times in '94.   Who else is finished?  I also believe Zep will never tour again.  

Actually, Pink Floyd MAY actually happen.  With the downturn in the economy, some rockstars lost a lot of money in the dotcom's.  So, you may actually see something like a Pink Floyd reunion (minus Syd Barret) because of financial considerations.

There might be more legs to the LOTR than we thought.  The rumors still abound that after making King Kong and another movie, Peter Jackson may return to make The Hobbit.  Hopefully Toy Biz can continue on with that.

I was just at a store that some would consider expensive:  Toys R Us in Times Square.  They had the Clone Troopers for $11.99 each.  Considering it was the first time I've ever seen the Blue version at retail EVER, I thought it was acceptable.

"Stay on target"  Gold 5!   ;D

NICE!  I've been wondering when we'd get just a plain Uruk Hai, and here they give us the crossbowman.  Very cool!

Red 6's site is nice, but I think there's some liberties taken with actual names over what LFL deems their names to be.

Not that it matters honestly...  But I do believe there's some discrepency sometimes.

I'd be in army builider heaven if every figure that spoke got a figure...  Too bad no Fleet Troopers speak besides a grunt or groan. :(  I'd get a new one, and maybe a decent one.

I'm pretty sure that the Red 6 site has taken that info from the Decipher CCG.

Have faith Spuffy.  I found the new Aragorn and Gollum this morning, and I missed armored Eowyn.  Just keep looking out.

My email said that it won't ship until September 4th.  But, if I can save myself the stress and gas of running around looking...I can deal.

You could probably put them on the wall with tacs.  Or, possibly in some kind of picture frame.

That sounds like it might be one of the places on the North end of the strip.  Those are the older places, generally.  Pretty much from the Stratosphere north.

Also, those table rates are probably only in effect on weekdays.  Weekend table rates tend to be higher in Vegas and Atlantic City as a general rule.

I wish I could set them all up right now.  I've run out of room, and half of my army is in boxes right now.

This is a great figure.  It's a good likeness, and a good sculpt.  Could it have more articulation?  Sure.  But I actually like the blast feature, too.

Another cool thing about this figure is this:  you can pose him sitting in the forward hatches of the Republic Gunship in an interesting way.  You can have him sitting in that hatchway as a kind of door-gunnner, and it looks pretty cool.

I think  I'd rather see a more articulate basic Scout Trooper than a pre-posed group of 3 Scout Troopers.

My sympathies.  My nephew is crazy about the Wiggles, but I just don't get it.

I skipped mine.  First, I had to work.  Second, I wasn't really fond of a lot of the people in my school.  It was way too clique-ish back then, and I didn't really feel like revisiting that.

On a similar note, my 10th College reunion is coming up next year.  I might go to that one, although I haven't decided for certain.

I can't believe the way injuries are already affecting this season, and there's still a week of preseason left.  Whoa!

I just gotta keep my fingers crossed that the G-Men can stay healthy, and take it to each and every team we face.
