Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Walking Dead

That looked like a pretty major accident occurred (cars flipped over, etc.), I imagine some of the occupants died in the crash and if they didn't, they died from their injuries when no helped arrived.

And don't you need to be bit by a walker to become a zombie?  Dying from natural causes or an accident injury won't make you a walking dead.

LEGO / Re: Legos

Series 7 apparently.  Love the blue space man, black knight, tarzan, bagpiper, aztek and neptune.

Too bad the bunny's not pink for Scott's alter ego.

I've been on a Lego kick recently.  My oldest is obsessed with them (after Christmas he'll have a complete Atlantis, Alien Attack and Spongebob collection and I know he'll want the superhero sets) and it's making me dig out some of my older SW sets and rebuild them (they were put away because I have no room to display them). 

I joined the VIP club at Lego and since October is double points month, had family buy a bunch of stuff for Christmas.  I just ordered The Black Pearl and with those points, should be able to get close to $50 off the Imperial Flagship.  It'll go nicely battling it out with the Pearl and QAR.  Hopefully the Flying Dutchman gets released.

Awesome.  Love the Dreadnok set, what a great way to get the remaining original 'Noks (plus Zanya and the black dude).  Must be a rights issue with calling Thrasher Thunder.  Hopefully Gnawgahyde comes with his wild boar.  I'm also glad they didn't include another Zartan with the set.

Getting the Marauders set strictly for Mercer, Red Dog and Taurus.  Would love to have seen Sarge included as I never managed to get him.

I'm sure the Yankees were not trying to tank that game near the end there.  ::)

bull****.  I hate the Yankees with all my heart, but Giaradi had every right to manage his team the way he saw fit.  If that includes resting his players, making 18,000 pitching changes a game and playing the scrubs, then so be it.  The Yankees didn't owe the Red Sox anything.  And if you think about it, the Yankees kept the Red Sox alive in the hunt by taking 3 of 4 from the Rays last week.  Without that, this penant race would have been over last week.

Did they get a little joy by keeping the Sox out of the playoffs?  Maybe, but that doesn't mean they intentionally threw games (although I do question why Texiera didn't score from second  on a clean double).  The Sox have no one to blame but themselves.  They assumed they'd be able to coast into the playoffs and it came back to bite them in the ass.  The Rays had the will, desire and guts to fight to the bitter end, the Sox were the complete opposite. The only ones pulling their weight the last month were Ellsbury, Pedroia and Papelbon (although he blew it last night).  Everyone else were a bunch of entitled prima donnas who couldn't pitch, couldn't play defense or get the big hit when needed.  They deserved everything that happened to them and deserve all the criticism they're receiving now.  Maybe this will light a fire under their asses and they'll play a complete ******* season next year, start to finish.  The difference between the Yanks and Sox is that the Yanks play for the division and the Sox play just to make the playoffs (ie, the wild card).  At least the Yanks have something to fall back back on if they falter a bit.  We all saw what happened to the Sox - another third place finish (by the so called "greatest team ever").

I can't with good conscience root for another AL East team and I don't really like Texas, so I'll be rooting for Detroit in the AL and Philly in the NL.

I also found 30th wave 1 last week - grabbed the Iron Grenadier, Steel Brigade and Hazmat Viper.  Haven't had a chance to open them yet, but they look great in the package.

Is anyone still seeing Crazy Legs and Rock Viper around?  Doubtful, I know, but that wave didn't appear around here (or if it did, I missed it).  Any help would be appreciated.

I need to see if I can score some tix to the Winter Classic this season.  My father knows someone that's been hooking him up with various Philadelphia sporting event tickets.  Hopefully he can come through with the WC.

Club is a go!

Hi DC Universe Club Infinite Earths fans!

We have some good news…the 2012 DC Universe Club Infinite Earths subscription program is moving forward! As you know, we did not hit the number of subscribers we were seeking for the club, but we know that there are some very passionate DC Universe fans, so we found a way to make the program work.

Current subscribers will get 6″ and oversized figures according to the schedule that was originally communicated at San Diego Comic Con and online. All figures that have been revealed will be part of the subscription program.

In order to make the program work, we needed to raise prices for day-of sales. So if you are NOT a subscriber, you will be paying more for the figures on the day of the sale. The good news for subscribers is that you are locked in at the subscription rates previously advertised.

And the even better news is that we are exploring re-opening the subscription program for a limited window of time. We’ve heard fans online posting that they wish that they had subscribed, so now you’ll get that chance. Be on the lookout for more details and dates next week.

We still have more good news, we are excited to reveal the winning club exclusive figure…Metron! So all of the subscribers will get their very own Metron, along with his Mobius Chair!

All of this good news will hopefully mean a fabulous start to the weekend for all of the DC Universe fans!

-FanGirl 2.0 


I actually signed up for the club after debating for awhile.  Definitely want the first four figures revealed - Jay, Atrocitus, Starman, Poison Ivy - and hope Mattel delivers what they've promised - classic characters and finishing up teams.  I don't want this sub to become a dumping place for Batman and Superman variants.  It's sounding like that's what the new retail line is for.  Hoping they blow us away with thier character choices.

While I didn't vote for Metron, I'll take him.  Hoping Rocket Red is coming (the one I did vote for)

Ok, I don't really need another thing to collect, especially at $70+ each, but the upcoming Bandai SH Monster Arts Godzilla figures are beyond awesome.  I've been a Godzilla fan since I was about 5 years old (so much so that I'm thinking about getting a tattoo of him on my leg.  The only other "geeky" thing I'd consider would be Batman.  Not Star Wars, not GI Joe, not a sports team logo - but I digress).

This is my favorite pic:


More here - http://www.toyark.com/news/godzilla-toy-news-32/sh-monster-arts-godzilla-from-bandai-4368/

Upcoming monsters include Mechogodzilla and SpaceGodzilla.  I'd love to get them all, but like I said, $70 each is tough to swallow (especially with Marvel Legends making a comeback after a hiatus).  Maybe I'll grab Gojira only and Gigan (my favorite monster other than the big G) if they make him.

Still no shipping notice for me so I checked my account status and the items haven't been cancelled, but have not shipped yet either.  I'd have liked to be one that already received them but no luck there, so now hoping they don't cancel them either.

My order hasn't shipped yet either.  I checked my account earlier this week and noticed that my old credit card number was listed, but I knew I entered my new one, so I sent customer service an email just to check on the status.  They said they're still shipping orders out because of the insane amount they had.  My order is currently processing and should ship soon.  I'd imagine yours is the same way.

You know what, so far all 4 figures shown / confirmed I want and I still haven't bitten on the subscription yet.  I should really do it because out of 20 waves, the only one I haven't bought in full is 17 (the deputy lantern wave).  However, it's **** like that wave that's scaring me into not getting the subscription.  Black Lantern Swamp Thing as one of the choices for the bonus figue isn't exactly filling my with confidence either.  You just know Mattel wants to get the most out of their Swamp Thing.

If they just let us know that more Metal Men, Doom Patrol, Rogues and Bat villians are definites, I'd bite on the subscription in a heartbeat.
