Watto's Junk Yard / Are you a Hitchcock fan?
« on: March 21, 2004, 12:43 PM »
I always have been but seem to be getting into it more and more of late.  Stayed up last night to watch Frenzy and was moderately impressed.  It's been said before but Hitchcock was so far ahead of the curve in scaring/shocking people, but for the most part, without gore.  Frenzy is another good example of this.  

I expect most people have seen his more common movies (Vertigo, Psycho, The Birds) but are there any fans that have other favorites that didn't achieve such notoriety?

I vividly remember watching Psycho for the first time in the campus bar during my first year of university.  Very old movie, even at that time, but still managed to scare a lot of the patrons in the bar.  We mostly laughed.  Twisted 18 year olds, I suppose. :-\

Ok, I'm taking credit where it's not due, but Find your MIddle-earth Name

Granted, I am crossing into LOTR territory, however....

Elven Names:  Caranbor/Caranborion

Hobbit Name:  Tom Brandybuck from Haysend

Jeff and I hooked up for a fine trade.  I'm very satisfied.  Shipping was timely (especially considering the circumstances) and packing was excellent.  Super communication all the way through.  No worries here at all.  Thanks Jeff.

Hmm, get to start a new one.

Jeremy was kind enough to help me out with a Tour Animal for cost and shipping only.  A far, far better deal than I could find anywhere else, so thank you kindly.

Shipping was super quick and it was packed very, very well arriving in perfect condition.

Site Feedback, Suggestions, and Help / Computer freeze up??
« on: February 2, 2004, 04:27 PM »
Ok, bear with me here, I'm 99% certain it is my old clunker of a computer that is causing this.  

The situation: certain pages on varying boards/web pages lock up my computer.  Ctrl/ALt/Del doesn't unlock it.  The only thing that gets it going is to hit the reset button which requires a complete reboot and MS scan of ye olde tugboat-of-a-computer.  

Two pages on here currently are doing this:  Marvel Legends latest page and the Saga thread TRU finds or whatever the real title is.  I also have the problem consistently with the Galactichunter main page (I know, not your problem, just for reference sake) and have from the get go.  I also have problems over on snowtroopers.ca but I finally figured out it is something in the script of G3PO's sig.  

I primarily use IE for surfing as I find Nutscrape to be unstable.  It is an older version 5.x?

So I'm wondering if anyone can help or suggest anything?  Outside of a new computer that is.  I plan on getting one, but probably not until summer.  So I'm stuck here for a bit.  I've defragmented and done all the usual virus scan stuff.  

Thanks in advance.

Watto's Junk Yard / Sick of scalpers
« on: January 1, 2004, 09:05 PM »
I am seriously tired of people going on Star Wars and other toy boards and blatantly scalping stuff.  There are people on other boards that are asking double + for current figures.  They rationalize that it's to help pay for their gas.  Well sorry, but some of those prices pay for the gas, lunch, breakfast, dinner and a couple of movies in addition to their kids college tuition.  

Now, I get an email back from a guy who posted about a 12" figure I've been looking for.  No responses to his thread, I email the guy this afternoon and he sends back a message indicating that someone else is interested in it and hints strongly that it will go to whoever pays more for it.  In my email I offered his asking price.  Basically he wants a bidding war for his stuff.  There's a perfectly legitimate place for that, it's called ebay.  

Sorry for bitching but I've just had it with guys who think they're doing me and others a favor by grossly overcharging for toys.  And no, it was no one from this board.  Frosts my..... >:(

Watto's Junk Yard / The Great 2004 collectors challenge
« on: December 30, 2003, 11:58 AM »
What, you ask, it that?  

Well, out of curiosity I want to know what I (and others) spend in a year on toys.  If you wish to participate and perhaps frighten the hell out of yourself, please feel free to join in.  If not, no worries.  

Here's the deal:
Keep track of every penny you spend starting on January 1st.  
-Anything that is in transit does not count.  
-If you've paid for and shipped your end of a trade prior to that date, it doesn't count.
-If you have paid for something (item in hand) and are still in need of shipping, the shipping costs count
-for Canuckleheads, customs fees (taxes +$5.00) count, if applied to a trade of international origin
-preorders count if your credit card is charged after January 01, 2004
-travel charges (i.e. gas, bus, etc.) do not count as they are too intangible to keep track of (you're welcome Matt)
-all toy lines, collectibles, etc. that you collect are to be included - Master replicas, vintage, display cases
-fees for entrance into conventions do not apply nor do associated travel costs - it is presumed you would go anyway, but costs for items purchased at these events are included

These rules are welcome to be ammended as they are likely not complete.  I expect keeping track in this thread is the best idea, though it may lead to divorce ;)

Anyone up for it?

Feedback / Nicklab's feedback
« on: December 15, 2003, 12:58 AM »
Ok, I looked twice.  Can't believe there's not a thread here.  

Anyway, my fellow McFarlane Sportspick nut and I finished off one trade and are just waiting for my end to get to him on the second.  

Great communication, fair deals and excellent packing.  A pleasure.

Vintage Kenner / What's the difference between...
« on: November 25, 2003, 10:49 PM »
Nikto's battle staff and Yakface's staff?

Looking through the action figure archive, they look awful similar.  Is that accurate or was there some creative license/error in the photos?  I wouldn't be surprised to see the same weapon for both figures as that seemed very common through the vintage line.

Nowhere near acquiring a Yakface, but wondering if I should snag two complete Nikto's?

Modern Classifieds / My want list
« on: November 11, 2003, 02:16 PM »
Greetings,
this is mostly for the guys that help me out all the time.  I've been fortunate enough to have a pile of guys hunting for stuff for me and sending it all up for C&S, to me the true spirit of star wars collecting.  Since I am so horribly disorganized I thought I should create a master list for folks to have for reference (mostly me).  Anyone else that wants to help out is more than welcome.  I can't do much in return with respect to Star Wars but possibly I can help you from a McFarlane sports pick angle, mostly hockey.  If you see a number behind it means multiples please ;)

Saga
Hoth Trooper - 2
R-3PO
Luke Skywalker Hoth Attack
Han Solo Hoth Brown Coat
R2-D2 with drink tray - 2
R1-G4 - 2

Ultra Figures (?? = deluxe)
Wampa
Jabba the Hutt
Jabba's Denizens


Cantina Bar Section Figures  ::)
Doctor Evazan
Kitik Keed'kak
Wuher

12" Figures
Biker scout

Clearance category - hey, you know how it is.  Sometimes you want something, but not neccesarily at full price ;)
Saga Tie Bomber (I know, gone)
Hailfire Droid
Geononsian Fighter
Clone Wars Republic Gunship

I'll inevitably update this.  Thanks again for any and all help.  And yeah, I know I resemble a desperate collector always asking for help.  I wish it weren't so.

Newbies / Hey! Who's the new guy in yellow?
« on: November 7, 2003, 10:50 PM »
Jokabofe?  did I spell that correctly?  

Now I admit to not reading the front page very often (crashes my home computer :-\) so if it was announced there, please excuse me.  

Otherwise, welcome new and powerful overlord type. :-*

Vintage Kenner / What are the "last 17" figures?
« on: November 3, 2003, 11:15 PM »
Yes, I know, the last 17 vintage figures made, but specifically what are they.  Not like I would expect to be lied to on ebay or anything like that.   ::)

Currently these are the figures listed as "last 17" in the titles on ebay:

Anakin
EV-9D9
A-wing pilot
Imperial Dignitary
Lando General
Luke Battle Poncho (Endor)
Romba
Warok
Yakface
Lumat
R2-D2 with pop up light saber
Han Solo Carbonite
Luke Stormtrooper
Imperial Gunner
Barada
Amanaman
Paploo?

Is that correct?  Some seem relatively "common" on ebay

And while we're at it, what are good prices for each?  Do we have a price guide here?

For me it's about 5 1/2 hours ago.  

Less than a mile from home, I stop at the red light.  Waiting for my turn, it's essentially post rush hour and WHAM!!  Some guy in a truck plows into the back of me :o >:(

Guess what the first word out of my mouth was?  Inside the car that is.  I see no point, no matter the overwhelming temptation to beat the snot out of the guy, in getting mad.  License, registration and get out of there before hitting someone.  This is not to say I'm not unbelievably ticked but it serves no good purpose.  

Even worse, red light, maybe 10-15 cars around at various points of the intersection.  You think anyone pulled over to be a witness?  Nope, not a chance.   >:(  Thanks folks, maybe I'll help you out when your house is on fire ::)

Anyway, for our American friends, no civil suits of that sort up here.  A vehicle has to be insured to be licensed, so that side is covered as should be all the damage to my car, but what a pain in the butt (neck?).  Probably $1500-$2000 damage and I'll have to file a police report.  The good news is that our insurance adjustors and the guys who estimate damages are pretty clever in determining how the damage occurred.  Even if the guy turns into a complete knob and tries to claim I backed into him, the damage will tell a different story.  Here's hoping he doesn't try that.  

Annoyed, I am...
