Other Toy Lines / Re: What else do you collect?
« on: May 9, 2003, 01:36 PM »
Thanks for offer Morgbug, I appreciate it!  I'm gonna pass, though.  I've scaled back on getting the variants unless it's a player I really want, or it's an NFL player, or something from the older series' that I missed.  I think I'm going to completely skip MLB4.  I'm still on the fence about a couple of them.  I'm pretty much waiting for MLB5 to get back into things.

One thing I am doing to help things is ordering cases.  At least for the NFL line.  I already pre-ordered a case of NFL6 from www.spawntoys.com, and I'll be pre-ordering a case of NFL7, also.  It helps with the variants.  You get at least one per case, and sometimes 2 per case.  Plus, you don't have to worry as much about the shortpacked figures.  As for the excess, I'm just going to trade or sell those off at cost + shipping.

I primarily collect the NFL line.  I get scattered pieces from the NHL and MLB lines.  It's ususally dependent upon me liking the player, or the player being from a NY area team.  I don't collect the NBA line at all, and won't be getting any of the NASCAR pieces, either.

Episode 1 / Re: The Original "Midnight Madness"
« on: May 9, 2003, 11:23 AM »
I admit I was roped in by Midnight Madness.  At least the hype.  I didn't attend, but I was certainly curious.  I had only gotten mildly back into collecting the previous year when I bought some Action Fleet pieces.  This, after my Star Wars hiatus from 1984 to 1998!

So, instead of attending Midnight Madness (I had to work the next day at 6 AM!), I went after work.  I decided "You know what?  These are kinda cool.  I'm going to get some figures".

So, I got Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Anakin, Darth Sidious, Palpatine, and Queen Amidala.  Then, I asked one of the guys at the store "Do you have any more Darth Maul's?"  He disappears for a couple of minutes, and brings one back to me.  And that's how this mess all started for me, all over again!

I've heard that the cartoon is coming out in November.  I'm thinking possibly July or August for the Clone Wars toy lines.

Conventions / Re: Wizard World in Chicago
« on: May 9, 2003, 11:10 AM »
A friend of mine has gone to this show religiously for the past several years.  Both of us went to the Wizard World Show in Philadelphia, which was a substantial show.  He informed me that the show in Chicago was easily double the size of the Philly show, if not bigger.
