Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Fighting the urge to scalp.

I fought the urge this weekend.  I heard that Toy Fair Vader's with signatures were selling for at least $200.  Cash would be nice, but it wouldn't be cool to do that.  I'd rather get my Toy Fair Vader signed and keep it myself.

I saw one on a pretty dinged up card for $25 this weekend.

I think there's a Stormtrooper in there, also.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Favorite Band = Led Zeppelin

I'd say I'm a fan.  While I was only a whipper-snapper when Zep was still touring, I grew to appreciate them in college.  Even moreseo, after I took up playing bass.  I count John Paul Jones as one of my musical mentors.

I've also seen the remaining members live.  I saw Page & Plant twice when they were supporting their Unplugged album.  And more recently, I saw John Paul Jones and his band opening for King Crimson.  And he didn't just rock.  HE RAWKED!  

JPJ's original material is awesome, if you haven't heard it.  He's got a couple of fairly recent CD's in stores, Zooma and The Thunderthief.  Both are worth buying.  What was more remarkable about his show was the Zeppelin tunes he threw in.  He sang "That's the way" while playing mandolin, and his band accompanied.  He also did instrumental versions of "Black Dog" and "When the levee breaks".  The most remarkable thing about those songs was that he didn't play bass.  He had a guy playing a bass-like instrument called a Chapman stick.  So, that guy held down the bottom, while Jonesy wailed away on an overdriven lapsteel guitar in a way that would put Jimmy Page to shame.  "When the levee braks" was probably one of the most intense live performances I've ever seen, and I've been to a lot of concerts.  King Crimson actually had a hard time measuring up with their headline slot, and they're not exactly musical slouches.

How about this one:  bad spelling.  You can only imagine my plight on message boards, where it runs so rampant.

I saw the Super Bowl exclusives yesterday at Wizard World in Philly.  A dealer wanted $175 for Ladainian Tomlinson and Junior Seau as a set.  Still way too rich for my blood.

I bought two of these sets last night.  Pretty cool.  I'm quite fond of the whole set, to be honest.  While I know that every single thing in this set is a kit bash, for an Army builder like me, it's not bad.

The only thing approaching a gripe that I have is the finish of the figures.  It just feels a little less smooth than normal.  It was most noticeable on the Stormtrooper.

-Battle Droid-Invasion of Naboo.  Use the POTJ Security Battle Droid sculpt and plastic

-Naboo Royal Guard.  Different head sulpt, better articulation

-Clone Trooper.  White, well articulated

-Clone Trooper Sergeant.  well articulated

-Clone Trooper Lieutenant.  see above

-Clone Trooper Commander.   see above

-Imperial Scout Trooper with speeder bike.  Articulation should be similar to the SAGA Clone Trooper (Red/Captain)

-Death Star Gunner with control panel or turbolaser

-Death Star Trooper/Imperial Naval Trooper.  Better sculpt/articulation, and give him a functional holster

Well, they did finally get around to getting the Geonosian detention device out.  Albeit, with figures we already have.  The only glimmer of hope is the Nikto Jedi, who's barely different at all.

This is a long standing problem with a lot of retail chains.  The SKU #'s on all of these assorments are the same.  They're  just known as Collection 1 & Collection 2.  That makes it impossible for managers to order individual assortments at the retail level.

Next question....

What actor had a role in both Superman 2 and The Phantom Menace, and what were his roles?

Planet Action Figure has the Starspeeder 3000.  It's $35, but might be worth it to some.  Here's the listing page:
