Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Garfield

This is one of only three strips I read daily, the other two being For Better or for Worse and Foxtrot, which is my personal fav.  The strips in the Boston Globe suck, no Blondie, Hagar or Beetle Bailey, just crap that doesn't interest me or is funny for that matter.

Its amazing to see the change everyone's favorite fat orange cat and company have gone through over the past 25 years.

Well, its about 13 hours away from the new book being released so I figured a thread was in order.  There was some rumblings about this book in the "What are you reading now" thread, but figured this book, with all the hype, warranted its own thread.

I won't be picking up the book at midnight tonight but will go out to Target tomorrow morning and pick a copy up.  (I believe its on sale for $14, which is more than 50% off)

I still have to finish the book I'm reading now, but will start HP & tOotP soon after that's finished.

Anyone else as excited about this as I am?

I don't collect this line, but here's some pics of series 6's Statler and Waldorf





And I'm still waiting for a Sweetums figure  >:(

My avatar is Space Moose.  Space Moose was the star of a an extremelyprofane comic strip that ran in a Canadian college's newspaper in the early 90's.  

And for the record, extremely funny.  Cosmo emailed me a link last year after I inquired about it following a similar thread at RS.  Its not for everyone though, there's definitely some raunchy stuff going on.

I joined it back in March after finding nothing since Nov. 02.  My first shipment of the speeders and Vader / Leia Unleashed shipped within a week.  Since I had already ordered a case from newforce with the padawans, Aayla, etc., when I signed up, I just didn't order those figs. (leave the qty as "0")  My next shipment should be huge: Luke, Sidious, Obi Unleashed, Clone Wars vehicles, Han Hoth, Chewie Mynock, and the items I have on hold: Mace, R2 and spider droid.  So far, their service has been excellent - always a quick response on email - and they're willing to hold figs to save you on shipping (which is fair to begin with, only cost $10 to ship 2 Unleashed figs and 2 speeders).  They charge your credit card with a 50% deposit to secure your items, but everything is laid out nicely on your account status page.

I recommend giving it a shot, Cosmo.

Episode 1 / Re: Queen Amidala Battle with Ascension Gun
« on: June 19, 2003, 08:38 AM »
This is the only figure I need to complete my standard Episode I collection, but I refused to pay a high price for it.  If this fig was released near the beginning or middle of Episode I's run, it would have been warming the pegs for months or in some cases, still will be. (A TRU near me still has a row of clearanced Nute Gunrays for sale.  The only activity on these has been moving them from the clearance section to the Star Wars section)

Nope, buying it all  ;D

Saga '02-'04 / Re: What 2003 SAGA product are you still missing?
« on: June 19, 2003, 06:51 AM »
Due to the lack of figs, I joined kebco's one of every figure club.  Everything is pre-ordered for me and I expect a huge shipment soon - Luke, Obi, Sidious unleashed, Clone Wars vehicles, Han Hoth, Chewie Mynock and the items I have on hold: Mace, R2 and Spider Droid.

The only figs I need that are those that weren't available when I signed up: first variant Imperial officer, both variants of the Rebel Fleet Trooper and Tusken Raider.  Other than those, I'm caught up.

Jocasta's Reading Room / Re: Best place to purchase new comics.
« on: June 18, 2003, 02:47 PM »
I still think to best way to purchase new comics is to find a comic shop near you and buy them there.  No shipping charges, new books every Wednesday, etc.  Most have a "club" you can join and they hold the books you want for you.  That way you don't have to go every week, you just do a pick up once or twice a month and pay for it then.

Wishing Well by Terrance Trent Darby

He claimed his album was going to be bigger than the Beatles Sgt. Peppers album.  After that, his career went down the crapper.

Can't wait.  Another 45 minutes of extra footage makes me one happy camper.  I'll pick up the theatrical edition when released and the EE also (like I did with FOTR).  The sneak peek of ROTK on the theatrical edition will hold me over until December - like the theatrical FOTR did for TT.  

I too hope for the "origin" scenes of Gollum.  The pics floating around the net were awesome.  I want to see more Ents and more Helms Deep.  Hopefully Faramir character gets fleshed out more and acts like his portrayal in the book - the complete opposite of Boromir. In the movie, he came across alot like Boromir - someone who feels like the Ring should be used as a weapon.

Wave 1 pieces were showing up at WalMart's as part of the "Best Of" assortment as recently as a month ago or so.  Might be worth checking out.

I have been, but WMs around here suck.  They have nothing Marvel wise but endless rows of the movie Hulk figs and crappy Spider Man classics figs.  Almost as bad as the Star Wars situation  ::)

Lots of Human Torch still around up here if you need it Mikey.  But about Namor?  You hit it right on the head.  Lots of Thing on the pegs, but I think he was overpacked.  Kinda like Iron Man ::)

Thanks, but no need.  I found Torchie and Namor last night at Gamestop for 50% off.  I got both for $10.50.  No Thing though.  (It would have been sweet if Thing and Doom were sitting in the clearance box, but oh well).  I'm not in panic mode yet about wave II and I'm going away for the weekend, so I'll definitely be looking for these things in another state.  For wave I, I might go to ebay.  I saw a few deals for a complete set that I might jump at.

Matt, the Falcon is around $30, the X-wing should be $15 and the Endor and Hoth sets should be around $8.  And KB is the only place I've seen these.

And if its not too much trouble, I'm in need of an Xwing set if you find an extra one.  My area ran out of them a long time ago.  I will of course pay you cost, tax and shipping.  Thanks.

Mikey
