Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Spider-Man 3

I liked the first movie. The second one could have been better, but I never really cared for the Doc Octo. character. The third one looks like it could be good, but there are too many "major" villians for one movie. Between Sandman,Venom and the New Green Goblin that many villians would lend to another movie, but I thought this was the last.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Your Loyalty?
« on: April 11, 2007, 11:02 PM »
If Hasbro does not renew their contract then the line should end at that. Zizzle is a possibility but you're right back to limited articulation and questionable likenesses. I do agree that the number of characters produced for a year does need to be cut back. If there are only 40 or 50 to get for a year than distribution would in theory be better since there would not need to be so many waves.

Some of the major problems with collecting that Hasbro has no control over:

1-Scalpers, a figure is popular or short packed and gets bought up quickly for a profit. One solution is equal numbers of each figure per case.

2-Army builders, I got nothing against army builders I do some myself but Hasbro can not keep up with the demand of people that build Grand Armies with 50+ of a trooper.

My loyalty is to the hobby but if someone else picked up the license I'm not sure if I would continue collecting. Look at the 12inch line. I have some of the Hasbro ones and they are OK compared to Sideshow, but I can't afford a sideshow figure and had to stop collecting them.

If Hasbro stops, I stop.

Day must have gotten longer or a bird must have farted causing more global warming because gas jumped 10 cents today. New price 2.79. Milk is about 2.99 unless you have a Safeway card than it is 2.50.

Daylight savings is to blame for the gas hike. More daylight is causing more people to be out which causes more demand. At least that what my local news just reported.

So here's the theory: Soilders in Iraq+Iran taking Brits Hostage+daylight savings-groundhog not seeing its shadow+local gas tax=2.69 for regular unleaded.

For those that are paying $3+ for gas has your gallon of Milk price also reached $3?

Army Ants

Same concept as the Little Green Army Men. They were about 2-3 inches tall and were one piece molds (for the most part) with cartoonish Ants with weapons in battle poses.

Didn't reach 40, didn't get fog. Instead it was around 30 and snow again and again another baseball game postponed.

I have a link if anyone wants Lucy for their computer wallpaper. It's from a UK based site. Due to a couple topless pictures I will not post this link, but will give it out as a pm. Most pictures are within the realms of images we would post on this site but about 4 are more adult rated.

Here is a sample

Got my album today and opened it. Now the debate comes to if I want to fill it. On the package it says there is a timeline included and the picture on the box that shows this timeline is not what I have inside. The slot on mine just tells about the joy and variety of coin collecting in the Star Wars Universe.

HAHAHAHA!!!! The timeline is on the back of the coin collecting paper..I have to start to drinking more.
