I'm beginning to fear the most boring Stanley Cup final series ever :o

Other Toy Lines / Re: Stealth Predator

Grabbed the Predator the Hunter figure today.  No deluxe Queen around here either.  Puppy alien didn't do much for me, nor did regular alien.  Maybe on clearance.

Oh my, I don't even know where to begin ;D  

Maybe I'll be gentle and wait until tomorrow ;)

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

Matt, you big chicken.

Pretty much everyone I know, knows of my obsession.  Many except for a few, and the people at work, aren't quite aware of the extent.  None the less, all are aware I am a severe geek.  One guy thinks it's a complete waste of money, which is correct, but who cares, it makes me happy.  

Non-work friends have seen some of it.  The room is not currently in progress, but there's no hiding it.  From the helmet on the monitor (and playskool biker scout and Vader) to Ephant Mon on the printer to the unleashed on the bookshelf.  The Vader standup and the R2 on the floor plus the 150 open figures.  Can't really miss it if you come into the room.  

Work people are all too aware and get tremendously dissappointed I don't come dressed for Halloween.  For about 18 months now there have been 1-6 boxes showing up per week for me, so it would be silly to hide it.  But it isn't all that accepted.  They love my Simpsons stuff and go crazy when I put a new McFarlane goalie up, but the SW stuff is so so in terms of reactions.  A new guy started last year that loves star wars as well and I pretty much hooked him into collecting.  So far, just blue boxed stuff (SAGA) but I'm working on my padawan.  Good to have another geek around.  

Best man at my wedding has a six year old into McFarlane stuff and a four year old into Star Wars.  Uncle Brent is a pretty cool guy in their eyes.  He's my regular golfing buddy, so he knows I'm not totally nuts.  

I've been a collector forever.  From childhood with GI Joes through bottle caps to cards to comics to Star Wars and bugs, I collect, therefore I am.  

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

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Accessories?
« on: May 14, 2003, 11:13 PM »
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?

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Which army-builders need a facelift?

I agree Ewoks, lots of little furry guys!!! They have a couple of molds already!!!

Aaaaaaaaaaaargh >:( ::) ;)

Saga '02-'04 / Re: What killed the deluxe line?
« on: May 14, 2003, 11:07 PM »
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!

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What's Your Ethnicity?
« on: May 14, 2003, 11:00 PM »
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' ;)
