Watto's Junk Yard / Re: I think I need my head examined

Funny, as I was posting this, I kept seeing a metaphorical baseball in my head that I knew you'd hit out of the park.  Good job.

Don't you have any bosses, managers, co-workers that are like "what the hell's up with all this stuff dude?!"...  
Yup, that's why there is so little of the Star Wars stuff out.  Social engineering experiment of a sort.  They love the hockey stuff (small, hockey mad town - home of Eddie Belfour - goalie for Leafs).  Simpsons stuff is well received, possibly owing to my general likeness to Homer ;) but Star Wars stuff?  Yuck, that's for kiddies, isn't it?  I used to have a fair bit more up, but it wasn't worth the crap and abuse.

Yeah, we've heard all about your bubble wrap already, bubble boy
Hey, at least ya know my stuff I trade is coming well wrapped.  You're just jealous. :P  Maybe because the bubbles remind you of what's under that sweater :o

The VAder helmet may stay here.  It will be a nice quality piece, relative to the other stuff.

Watto's Junk Yard / I think I need my head examined
« on: May 1, 2003, 01:25 PM »
OK, this is sad.  I was digging around my office, looking for something work related and I became rather appalled at what I have in here as far as toys go.  I receive all my toys at my work address.  For two reasons.  The primary one being that nobody leaves crap on my doorstep to either get rain damaged (as my fan club Wuhers did) or stolen (still knocking on wood).  Here everything is delivered inside and gets signed for by me or someone else.  Good system.  

Anyhoo, all of my trade stuff for star wars is here (not listed), aging appropriately as it is stored in a tupperware tub.  But, I have lots of filing cabinets in here and the only reason for most of them (or so it seems) is to store toys.  Yikes!  Below is a list of what is just sitting around my office, MIMP or NM in condition.

Happy B-day, but as a resident old guy, you should know this is the beginning of the end ;D

That sums it up for us here in Canada.  :'(

Quite

Holy Crap :o  You guys won't believe this.  Y'know how Canada sucks as far as Star Wars toys go?  Well, you won't believe what I found.  

Six Walmarts and all of one figure on the pegs, Twister Han ::) >:( :( :'(

Yep, Canada still sucks.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Hey, I won!
« on: April 30, 2003, 12:33 AM »
only time I won anything was at another board cough*rebelscum*cough that I seldom visit anymore.  

I was lucky enough to get to pick in the top 25 people and managed to score my Walmart POTF2 poster.  All the toys were gone by the time I got to pick, but I was still damn pleased with what I got.  

congrats dude.

NRG on trilogo? ;) ;D  Does it need a home where it won't be discriminated against for it's trilogo-ness?

Removing price stickers is easiest with goo-gone.  Nothing works better.  Just drop it on, leave stand for a couple of minutes then peel off the sticker like it was just sitting on top, rather than stuck.  Wipe off the residue and no damage, no discolouration at all.  I won't remove a sticker without it now. It just makes it so easy.

Not totally true.  Once case of the pilot wave showed up.  For a city of almost 700K.  That's reasonable, isn't it?  

I gave up a long time ago on Canada.  Major kudos to the crew from Minnesota for keeping me up to date for the past year.  It's nice to find stuff in the store, but I don't expect it anymore.  I go to stores to look for LOTR, McFarlane, Marvel Legends, Spiderman stuff.  Maybe Simpsons, but we're blowing that too.  Instead of ordering portions of a Wave we just keep ordering the same wave over and over again.  Our TRU's are awful. They are clogged with Wave 10 while you guys are on wave 12. TRUly sad. :'(

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Bar's open! What'll you have...?
« on: April 28, 2003, 10:37 PM »
Dang, Rhode Island.  Hmm, lots 'o boxes round here with Star Wars and RI stamped on them.  Nice for your collection, better for your sanity.  Hang in there.  

That's the cool thing about being married.  No matter how much I drive Mrs. Bug nuts, she still likes to have me around.  And vice versa.  Lots of things are taken for granted, but better that than to be apart (yeah, I know, I'm not helping, but something for you to look forward too).  

Better than sappy old Matt MegaBucks ;)

Too rich for me.  Maybe if I hadn't started on that McFarlane stuff, but not now.  Very sweet, but those fall into the after I win the lottery category.  Heck, I'm wrestling with Kubricks still.  Should I?  Shouldn't I?

To be honest, I'd be really surprised if I did find something you needed.  I suspect you are rather much more the master ebay hunter than I.  Nevertheless, first time I'd ever seen it and at the very least, others might find it interesting.  

Just so you know, still no trilogo Jango pilot around me.  Quite sad.

Other Toy Lines / Stealth Predator
« on: April 28, 2003, 05:28 PM »
Waay off topic, but for those inclined to McFarlane's Movie Maniacs, the collector club exclusive Stealth version of the Predator is available NOW.  No idea how long it will last, but go today if you want it.  the last club exclusive sold out in about two days or so (deja - toy fair vader-esque).  

Pretty cool figure and only $10 plus shipping.  Joining the club is free.  store is found here 8)

Oh yeah, be prepared to be at the computer a long time.  3 hours to get my order in.  Also very reminiscent of the toy fair vader saga.
