Power of the Force 2 / Re: Favorite Ship
« on: May 14, 2003, 11:21 PM »
I'd have to say my current favorite ship today would be the AT-AT.  It's just enormous, has awesome sound effects, and comes with 2 awesome figures (General Veers and AT-AT Driver).

I'm right there with you on this one.  It was hard for me to find, and at a reasonable price too.  Maybe those two are related somehow given that I passed on all the ships initially ::)

This is just a cool, cool vehicle.  Huge, maybe not quite to scale, but just awesome.  Goes well with the Action Fleet and Tomy versions for a display.  

got the AT-AT and T-16 for $70 Cdn shipped ;D

The thing I liked best about the old card/bubble combination was easier storage.  These saga figs are a pain.  Cards are worse (who knows the cause); because the bubbles are larger, they are much more susceptible to damage, it's really quite annoying.  

Accessories?  These things come with accessories?

Oh you people, no more damn Ewoks, alright >:( ;)

Me like 3PO builder, like the Yoda.  Geonosian is feh, ok by me.  Interested in receiving my shipment from Newforce (soooooon) to decide on others.  

Thank heavens for those Jango fanatics that took both my trilogo deluxe Jango off my hands. ;)

I must say, I am expressing some relief that Matt was indeed a chicken and never took that bet.  Whew!

Depends on how far back you go, at least for me.  Going by grandparent heritage, I would be 1/2 German and 1/2 Irish.  Basically my grandparents almost went to war against each other (fortunately the German side had emigrated to Canada prior to WWI).

But if you dig further, you will find that my ancestors further back were Scottish.  Legend has it they were thrown out of Scotland for stealing sheep (note:  Stealing).  That may be entertaining to those of you without Scottish blood, but those that enjoy Haggis will know that most every line of Scots have been under similar duress. ;)

WEll, maybe if the Tavern came with a Moe... ;D

Oklee doklee.  I'll call it $40 and see what I can do.  

Duly noted.  I'll see what I can scare up for ya.  I'll likely have to trade for it.  I'll be parting with hockey chase pieces, but the good news is I got them at retail, so we'll work the trade ;) based on that.  

What's your upper value on Daunte, Scott?

One of the first signs of being an alcoholic is setting time parameters around when you can drink.  I kid you not, it's in the AA list.  

Besides, that's what light beers are for.  Up north we call them 'breakfast beer' ;)

Huh, not that long ago I could have grabbed you one for about $40 US shipped.  Oops, should have taken it.  I'll be happy with my white Culpepper, though having all three Vikes in purple would be nicer.

I'll see if I can't find you one over at the spawn board.  Is loose ok?

Isn't Canadian Currency worth as much as Canadian Tire Bucks?
At Canadian Tire?  Yes, exactly the same.  

Not that it's a real good idea to get smug about a dollar that's worth only $0.72 of a Yankee greenback, but...

Since December our dollar has gone up by $0.11 US.  Relatively speaking, as compared to the Canadian dollar, the US currency has lost 10% of its value in a space of less than 6 months.  

That's probably not a good thing for you.  For me, Dale and the rest of the Canuckleheads that are addicted to these stupid toys, it's great news as we're essentially getting a 10% discount compared to half a year ago.   :)

I'll check my stuff at some point for you (all stored in a rubbermaid tub right now) but just to add to the confusion, there were Canadian versions released to.  Or I presume there were.  Though Ididn't buy them at the time, Canadian TRU's carried these and at that time, the rules about packaging were much more stringent than they seem to be now.  Whereas we see numerous US carded figures showing up in stores now, at that time, everything was on trilogo.

I don't know whether that held true for that time though.  I believe I've obtained most of my stuff from US trading partners, so I can probably address your question if I have some of the unusual stuff.  I jus thought it necessary to further complicate the issue for you ;)

Thanks for the updates ;D

That is the beauty of the NBA though.  Game is not over until the last buzzer sounds.  so easy to come back from 20 down.  

Out of curiousity, will Laker fans be whining about the reffing?  Curse those conspiratorial directors at NBA headquarters.  BTW, was game 3 still the turning point ;)

Please do keep me updated.  The only sports on the tube up here right now is a Braves game.  *shudder*

Hockey game is over.
