Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Jedi Defender: Scalper Supported?
« on: April 9, 2003, 11:44 PM »
Heh, start collecting McFarlane sportspicks if you really want to see what scalping is all about.  Ebay dictates price, even on that board.  Quite lovely, I must say, particularly since I can't always get to stores at 7 am.  Oh well, lots of contacts in the SW world to help me out.   ;)

I guess with respect to the sponsors, depends on how they obtain their figures.  If a store had someone out at store opening buying up figures to resell, yep, that's scalping.  If, on the other hand, they have product delivered to their door, they can sell it for whatever they please.  For every Ephant Mon they send out the door at $20, they probably take a loss on Jar Jar Senator.  

You've got the right idea Cory, no support, no business.  But I sure see why they have them as a sponsor, because the site costs money, so you takes what you gets.  And from what Scott says, for vintage, they're pretty good.  Not a bad thing to have redeeming qualities.  

Vintage.  *shudder*, now there's a road I don't want to go down...

Naw, that's ok, she's hot.  Ever see the cover with her in a white bikini? :o  That pic should be in the other thread. ;)

I just didn't bother listing all the comics, just the mains.  

Forgot to include spiderman/marvel figs as well.  Again, selective little git, I am.  

I collect bug books too.

Oh, stop thinking like a collector Scott ;)  

Seen any Chewie's or Vader's on the pegs lately?  Probably some of the figures that kids actually do buy.  Sales, sales, sales that's what it's all about.  

Not that I need another Chewie, just letting my right wing business side out for some fresh air. 8)

Hmmm.  

Bugs ;D

star wars 1995-present 3 3/4 figs,, Unleashed (though I won't own two Vaders) vehicles, playskool, action fleet;
but I've quasi-broken out of being a completeist.  I don't have every figure associated with Episode I or the vehicles or beasts.  Just no attachment there and same loathing for all things Gungan as I have for Ewoks (actually worse).  

Simpsons - Homers plus a few others.  Have the THOH figs plus Burns, Burns Manor, Hank Scorpio, Smithers and now, apparently Scout Leader Ned diddly Flanders.  No MOE :D

LOTR - started and abandoned.  Only have FOTR Ring Wraith, Gandalf, Gimli, Legolas and Aragorn and they are all available except for Gandalf and Ring Wraith.  Have TTT Ring Wraith and Horse, but will happily trade it away.  

McFarlane Sportspicks - NHL mostly.  Have all of NHL2-4 with the exception of a red Hull and a white Thornton.  Waffling about only keeping the goalies though.  These are the other acceptable things on display at work (Homer being the other).  

Comics - from 1984-1994 or so, I collected comics and comic related cards.  Mostly Marvel (X-men, spidey, DD, Thor, Hulk) and some DC (predominantly Batman titles, though some supe, catwoman), Image (Spawn, Gen 13) and some others.  I fell out of it when big boobs became a super power that resulted in high comic book value :-\ >:(

Only thing my wife collects is Disney movies/DVD's so I can relate Matt.  Oh how I wish she would start with something.  Much easier to rationalize a purchase that way, or so Koda tells me. ;)

OH sure, my moment of glory edited away.  

You starting to get nervous about the playoffs?  Trying to make sure my name ain't up there in glowing lights when the Oceaners fail to fourpeat?  Chickenboy?

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Coca-Cola or Pepsi?
« on: April 8, 2003, 12:28 AM »
Pepsi = Shaq, the taste of a juvenile generation.

Ergo it sucks.  

Funny how Pepsi can't advertise its flagship product without a reference point.  That reference point being Coca-cola.  

Figured out where I stand yet? :-*

The Jets huh? :'( :-[

Oh, sorry, ok, I'm better now.  Sorry, that should read bitter ::)

Prior to leaving, they were on the verge of being an amazing team, especially when you could get Zhamnov playing.  Probably the critical element you forgot Scott is Nikolai Khabibulin who started his career in Winterpeg.  They were all too young at the same time, but had they been kept together, they would have been frightening.  I still say they made a mistake when they traded Selanne rather than Zhamnov or Tkachuk.

Selanne is still my favorite player.  Just an all around classy guy.  3 years into his career, his and Tkachuk's contracts came up at the same time.  Tkachuck stayed home in what appeared to be the early years of a perpetual snit.  Selanne showed up at training camp without a contract.  Stupid in the sense of injury and end of career, but utterly and completely classy.  He just wanted to play hockey and do so for the people in Winnipeg.  There are rumours that the chase piece in the McFarlane series NHL6 will have Selanne in a Jets jersey.  I guarantee you, no matter the price, I will win the first one offered on ebay.  

Prior to that though, there was a year in which the Oilers, Jets and Flames, all in the same division, finished 1-2-3 in the league.  Jets beat the Flames in the quarters (IIRC) and then the Oilers, Cup champs that year (again) beat the Jets in the divisional final.  Tragic.  

Winnipeg Arena was a horrible place but it was beyond a shadow of a doubt the loudest arena in the NHL come playoff time.  The whiteout originated there and nobody did it better.  

 :'( :'( :'(

I'm guessing an Ottawa-Detroit final as well, with the Wings winning (unfortunately).  Jersey and Dallas should have a good shot too with Colorado on the outside, though they played extremely well to end the season.  Dallas-Edmonchuk should be a bloody brawl.  No offense to the battle of Alberta, but that is where a true playoff rivalry exists now.  

This should be a pretty spectacular playoff season.

I'm gonna go get a beer, put on my Jets jersey and cry now.  *sniff* thanks for da memories boys. 8)

I am more than a little dissappointed that Dale has not posted last night's pics of Shania for Scott.  Several different hockey based outfits at the Juno awards and no pics here?  Shame on you :'(

Episode 1 / Re: Commtech
« on: April 6, 2003, 11:15 PM »
Well, it just so happens that my commtech reader is right here beside me ;D

turn it on ;)

Hold your chip over the red dot at the bottom.  Hold the button (one of the four just above the label that says Star Wars Commtech) you want to have store that chips information down until it does beep, just as Chris said.

Stored in mine right now are:
Admiral Motti
Stormtrooper
one of the Darth Maul chips
R2-B1 ;D
