Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Children's Artwork of Star Wars
« on: May 21, 2003, 10:50 PM »
Funny thing being a tad older than you guys.  My main drawing days were pre-SW so at that time I was absolutely fascinated (and not even remotely understanding the horror of) with WWII.  All I drew were pictures of the British fighting the Nazis.  Planes, ships, tanks, infantry, submarines, scuba divers, you name it, I drew it.

Sad commentary:  were a kid to draw now what I drew then, I suspect they would be in for some serious long term counseling.  Fascination with war, particularly Nazi military machines (spent my youth building Tamiya model kits, predominantly German), weaponry.  Yup, sign him up for remedial politically correct behaviour classes.  And be careful he doesn't go postal.

I suspect SW gets a pass because it is fantasy.   Glad that it is and does.  Nice piece up there, very reminiscent of the old drawings I did.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: How Long Will Hasbro Make 3 3/4"
« on: May 21, 2003, 08:39 PM »
2005 is next movie?  3 3/4 dies after Christmas of that year.  Done, fini.  Look at this year, how's distribution around you?  Pretty crappy huh?  Same things going to happen after Ep 3 unless George realizes what the fans really want.  Ep 2 was spectacular in many respects but the love story sucked, for guys and girls.  Point of fact is I have yet to meet anyone that enjoyed that aspect.  Leia/Han style is all that is necessary.  

If Ep 3 is same, you can bet figure distribution/production will cease relatively quickly.  Maybe we'll be lucky and see it ramp up again in late summer 2006 for Christmas season.  Four months of SW figs then blech, nada.  

6" figs a la McFarlane/unleashed style but more functional/posable?  I could see it happening, though sales of Epic Force and Unleashed make me mildly skeptical.  If they can produce in lower numbers for the collector market and target that intelligently, it could well work.  Then maybe they could put out a scale Millenium Falcon for your 6" Han and Chewie figs.  Oh sure, you'd need to take the door off to get it in the house, but who'd complain about that (other than your spouse)? ;)

The Original Trilogy / Next question, light saber colors
« on: May 21, 2003, 08:28 PM »
OK, as I understand it, the light saber blade color is related to the particular power source used for the saber itself.  This is related to the choice made by the Jedi in question.

The real question I have, and I'm certain it's been answered a million times before, but I'm just too lazy (comes with age) is why are Sith saber blades always red?  

I know I should know, but I don't. :-[

The Original Trilogy / Re: Where'd the AT-AT go?
« on: May 21, 2003, 08:25 PM »
I'd love to see some AT-AT's blow up the Redwoods.  I'd rather see them blow up some Ewoks though!   ;D

I love you guys :'( ;)

Good points.  No doubt those babies move really, really poorly in a forested area.  The AT-ST's simply make more sense.  Just something I thought about (apparently briefly) while watching the movie.

Aw Matt, see, you are to blame.  Without your post, mine would have been nothing more than curious.  Hey, how are those Lakers doing ;) ;D

Hi, my name is Brent.  I too have a problem.  Oh, not with Star Wars, with those pesky little furballs called Ewoks ;)

Hoth?  Isn't it supposed to be cold there?  How could someone so far south be cold ;)

Welcome he who has suffered as much as Vikings fans.

Very good to see you here, DCV... Over here, I'm just Brad, Ewok spokesman.  ;)

Greetings and welcome.  I am the bane of Brad's existence.  Well, Matt's too.  Maybe a few others as well :P

Hey, I never promised I wouldn't say anthing Mr. TBM. ;D  

And all I did was hint at the cause, I never revealed nuttin' :-*  I mentioned a ceiling fan as an early B-day present, nothing more.  Jim had ample opportunity to lie, he just chose not to take it.  No dark side in that padawan.  Much to learn, has he.

Other Toy Lines / Re: What else do you collect?
« on: May 21, 2003, 02:52 PM »
Yep, I missed on the Super Bowl sets too.  Just not going to part with that kind of money.  I know one of the guys that was in the lucky 100 though.  He deserved to be there too.  Same guy that got me into collecting them.  

I don't even look at the exclusives because I know I'll simply never see them.  Too bad, some are cool.  I won't get mad about it though until there is a hockey exclusive.  That will be painful.  Shouldn't complain too much though as we see all of the hockey exclusives up here.  Oly sets, TML 3 pack, 2-2packs, now NHL5.  Of course that just offsets all the SW contests I can never, ever enter because of my Canucklehead status.

All of football is ridiculous.  It's just insane.  The difficulty is figuring out (guessing) whether it will be worthwhile to order cases of NFL6 and 7 just to drop on ebay.  Funding the Star Wars (and hockey) habit by use of McFarlane football.  

and before anyone craps on me for scalping (which would indeed be correct in a sense) go spend a week reading the mcfarlane board.  It is a whole different world over there and ebay prices rule.  You end up making friends and helping each other out, but by and large, ebay sets the prices.  I'd dearly love to have a 49ers Rice to open and display but he was near $100 from the get go and never came down.  No way am I paying that for a figure like that.  

I have two of the repaints and those are the most I've ever paid for single figs.  I got a great deal from one guy (also a SW collector, almost former collector) on the Roy repaint for around $50 US and found the repaint Cujo for $75 Cdn in town.  Most recent sales of those two on ebay were between $110-130 US each.  

I managed to get two cases of NHL5 from a site that has already shut down taking orders.  Lots of good reason to be a regular customer ;D

Gas or electric?  And whatchou got to trade?

I'll let Jim explain the ceiling fan as an early gift himself, though I know Matt knows the story already.   ;)

Dang! 31!?  I've been trading with a younger man who's been lying to me about his age :o

Happy birthday punk, hope you enjoy the ceiling fan you got as an early present ;)
