Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Honda Accord: Anyone drive one?

My family has had a number of Accords.  They've all been great, and extremely reliable.  I own a Honda currently, but it's a CR-V.  Still a really reliable car.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Hall of Fame R2 question...
« on: May 11, 2004, 11:38 AM »
While many collectors would find the CommTech R2-D2 more desirable, the real reason why certain figures get rehashed over others is a little more complex than what collectors want.  So, why did we get this R2?  It was most likely because of factory issues.  Different factories produce different figures, and also have different tooling.  

In the case of most of the Hall of Fame wave figures, there was an effort to consolidate production to as few manufacturing plants as possible.  Hence, we've gotten the POTJ R2-D2 instead of the CommTech one.  Likewise, we've also gotten the POTF2 "All New Likeness" Princess Leia instead of the POTf2 CommTech version.

This is WAY too high.  Especially for loose pieces.  Even moreso since I traded a Dengar for an SA Clone Trooper yesterday, retail value for retail value.

One thing to consider is that the seller may actually have friends who are bidding on the auction to drive the price up.  This sort of thing happens on eBay all too often, and it's almost impossible to track.  It's because of things like this that I don't use ePay.

A paper route.  I got it when I was 13, and did that for a couple of years.  It was fine in the warm weather, but trudging around in the snow was NOT fun.

I have two Fambaas and they are opened.  If you ever decide to sell 1-2 of those, let this Wookie know! ;)


I'll take it under advisement, but beware when I get a real house and start making SERIOUS dioramas!  I might put Niub Niub to shame with the Battle of Naboo.  I have at least 40 - 50 assorted Gungans, a few extra Captain Tarpals, the Gungan cannons and I've even got a few Ammo Wagon's & AAT's, too!  And I haven't really talked about my Battle Droid army much.

So, let me get this straight:  Hasbro can't simply BUY a vintage Clound Car on the secondary market, take it apart and develop a mold from it?  Lame and cheap, IMO.

I would certainly hope that the General Veers would come with a small, holographic Darth Vader similar to the small, holographic Darth Sidious that came with the Count Dooku figure.  That seems to make the most sense.  Otherwise, I think we'd just be getting another ordinary Darth Vader.

I just got the Mecha Hulk from wave 2 of the new Hulk line.  WOW!  This is one of the best figures I've bought in a while!  It's a heavy duty piece of plastic, and there's serious articulation and detail.  Throwing in a little Gargoyle to ride around inside is an added bonus.  Now I have to find the Absorbing Man.

Here's one of the funniest things I've heard this season.  San Francisco traded with the Twins for catcher AJ Pierzynski.  Word is that he was not the best guy in the clubhouse.  Well, that rep has followed him to the city by the bay.  It's only May, and a Giants pitcher was quoted as saying that Pierzynski was a cancer in the clubhouse.  To make it even more interesting, when the Giants were playing the Padres, Pierzynski was talking trash about his own pitcher to Phil Nevin during an at-bat.  Can you believe this?!

What the hell's with all the old men kicking ass this year?  Damn...

Clemens, Kevin Brown, Glavine, and obviously Bonds.  Sheesh, has this become an old farts game, or what?  These guys are incredible testaments for keeping yourself in shape, and for proving that the young punks in today's game aren't really all that.  I'm stoked for Clemens, annoyed with Bonds, and pissed with Kevin Brown (since we traded him to the Yanks for NOTHING).  Regardless, it's fun to watch, and good for baseball that these geriatric patients are still hangin' around...
As much as I was ticked off at Clemens for coming back after he said he was going to retire, you've got to respect him.  He's able to spend a lot more time with his family, so you've got to be happy for the guy.  AND, he's still churning out good starts, all while closing in on Steve Carlton's position as second on the all-time strikeout record list.

Kevin Brown is turning out to be a great acquisition, especially since the Yanks were able to part ways with Jeff Weaver.  If you want to blame anyone for the deal, blame the Dodgers for wanting to dump salary by making the trade in the first place.  Brown has turned out some great performances thus far.  Plus, now that he's got some offense and not the Dodgers, I see his W-L record going up this year.

Dodgers and Angels are still playing pretty well, which is cool.  Can't figure out WTF is going on down in Florida still, with that crew of no-namers.  Almost the same can be said for the Twinkies right now.  Those clowns better slow their butts down too, 'cause I don't want Scott to be able to talk too much smack this season.
Well, I've got tickets to see the Yanks take on the Angels in a couple of weeks.  I'm curious to see how Vlad and Colon are going to mesh with that team.

The Sox are still up there too, so Matt, Mikey, and Jim must be pretty happy these days.  Just don't get your hopes up too much fellas, 'cause after all - they're still the Red Sox...   ;)   :P

True.  It's only May.  There's a full 5 months of baseball to play, and it's only going to get more interesting.  One of the most interesting stories to come out in the past couple of days?  Pedro Martinez suspending contract extension talks with the BoSox, and saying he's going to test the free-agency waters come the offseason.  That, and him getting rocked by the Rangers of all teams last night had to bring a smile to my face.  But as much as I think the Yanks might be interested in Pedro in the offseason, I sincerely hope they don't pursue him.  He comes across like he's a cancer in the clubhouse.  Do you really need someone like that?  Especially when they come at the price of $17.5 million a year?  No thanks.
