Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Walking Dead
« on: October 21, 2012, 01:08 PM »
Well, I bit the bullet and watched the first episode of The Walking Dead on Netflix yesterday. I've resisted thus far as I'm not really a "zombie guy". I also don't usually enjoy watching movies about people suffering (I'm much more of a campy feel good kind of guy) which I think this show will be about.

However, too many people keep raving about this show. I liked the first episode but I'm not sure if I'm hooked. I will watch through Season 1 before I make up my mind  ;)

I liked the Jedi Robes. That's about all I can say.

Wait a minute, Kate from Lost is in this movie?!?! How did I miss that?

Yep, she plays a Peter Jackson made up Elf, Tauriel.  Although given the way the movies may break up into 3 parts, I suspect there is a chance that she might not show up until Part 2 and Part 3.  Of course, PJ managed to work Arwen into the Two Towers movie even though she never appeared in that book so I don't presume to be correct that Tauriel would be limited to only the later chapters.

I really like that poster.  First shot of Bolg the Goblin leader.  Fili and Kili are the second most prominent Dwarves which is consitent with what Nicklab suggested.

If you search the internet you can find images of a lot of the toys that are being released in conjunction with the Hobbit.  These include the Great Goblin and Tauriel (Evageline Lilly) and many of the Unexpected Party.

My brother strongly recommended Ready Player One as well. I've been trying to get through the Song of Ice and Fire first.

Just finished "A Storm of Swords". Wow. I really loved the last third of this book. So many twists and turns. Way more than I was expecting!!  On to the next.

 Very interesting perspective on how to weave the Hobbit into a trilogy with an eye on the Lord of the Rings.

I pulled out my Batman Begins disk to watch again.  I don't have a DVD copy of TDK so I may just have to play the memory game on that one!

12" Figures / Re: Sidshow 12" Boba Fett

Sideshow agreed to send me a replacement for the Light up base... in accordance with their policy, you also have to "destroy" the deffective piece and provide photographic evidence.  If you don't they will charge you for the replacement.

I love their instructions for destruction:

Quote from: Sideshow
** Please use care and precaution when destroying this piece.  We ask that you use a rather blunt instrument to crush your piece only. We would advise placing the piece in a cloth bag, pillow case, or heavy duty trash bag to contain any flying debris as well as any small pieces that result from destroying your piece. DO NOT set fire to your collectible or drop it from a high altitude as this may cause bodily harm to yourself, bystanders, private or public property. We also ask that you protect yourself from flying pieces or shards by wearing eye protection, if possible, as well as proper footwear.

Got my Boba Fett. Nice looking figure for sure. Lots of hands and accessories. One issue with my figure though.  My base has some sort of a part loose as it rattles when you shake it. I'm going to have to get a replacement.

Andy Griffith dies at 86

Makes me sad.   I grew up watching the re-runs of the Andy Griffith show on television.  It was (and still is) one of our families favorite shows.
