Watto's Junk Yard / Re: How's the weather?

Not sure if we have any JDers in Calgary, but I sure hope they've grabbed their scuba gear and/or fled for the high ground or their boats.   :-\

Was reading a report that the first ten rows are underwater at the Saddledome, the Calgary Flames dressing room is totally submerged and the water has effectively shorted out all the electronics in the building, including the jumbotron wiring.   :o

Apparently the Jumbotron was on the floor surface for maintenance work and is completely done. 

Oddly we got some pretty heavy rains in Winnipeg the exact same day, to the point where the drain in our new Ikea store was shooting up water and they had about 8" of water on the main floor so they had to close down.  Obviously pales in comparison to Calgary though, that's just crazy.

****  just ****  <----------------------  Inside pics of Saddledome.   :-\

Wacky wild weather here lately, not like Calgary but we did have odd flooding back in the end of May from the storms that are looming around. Had to fight the waterfall & hail that was coming down the alley from 6-8 blocks away. Luckily no water in the house, was close tho... by a 1/2". Not fun!

Mentioned long ago... it was a WFT did Jonathan say?

Jonathan: "...Maybe"

He made his choice!

Remember, it's a reboot... not really the Sup's we grew up with.

Saw MOS today & all I can say is EPIC!   8)

Yes this is a reboot, not the Christopher Reeves or the Brandon Routh nod to Reeves. If I sit thru a movie that is bad, I will look at my watch like those last 3 SW flicks & Indiana Nuke the Fridge "cough-cough". MOS is fricken' awesome! I did see it in 3D & the CGI fighting scenes looked off. As for the suit, never bothered me & Cavill, perfect! Nice glasses Clark, no one will still notice.... lmao...  :D
I will see it again & own it to watch again & again!

Spoliers:  Anyone else notice the Easter eggs in MOS? LexCorp logo on a couple tanker trucks, Wayne Enterprises logo on the satellite, 2 signs on buildings, Blaze Comics & Utopia Casino, Ezra’s Mail Depot store & Sullivan’s Truck & Tractor Repair sign. Smallville?  Chloe Sullivan?

B+

Will that include the 400% Kubs?

As for an isbn number, sure why not. Think most books have them.

Look's awesome thus far. I would go with a softback cover like Coining the Galaxy that James Gallo, Mark Salotti & Jeff Correll did. Same as Duncan & Gus did with the Cast & Crew Items book.

I'm sure a few of us can supply pics if needed of various Kub's that you do not have. Even the odd surprise.  ;)

I'll get it, down the road. Medicom is really beating a dead horse being on hiatus with Kub's.  :-\

Really nice grabs here gang, nice to see vintage collections getting bigger. So much stuff to get & it never ends.

I have not picked up much in awhile, just upgraded my Canadian Regal stuffed Jawa. Complete with bandolier & vinyl pouch. Hands still squeaks.  8)



I will be selling off the other Regal Jawa "hand squeaks/no bandolier vinyl pouch" soon. If you are interested, Pm me.  :)

Yep, measured my Carb Block & it's almost 8" long by 3" wide & 1" deep. Tho the Stormtrooper is very nice, still not worth the $75. shipping to Canada via FedEx. The Carb Block cost me a tad over $200 & I could have shipped it for less even with FedEx.

The Carb Block seems to be a cold cast porcelain so adds some weight. The packing for shipping is terrible, no bubble wrap or peanuts. Just drop in an outer box & they ship, have heard a few received damaged.  :-\
