Other Collectibles / Re: Who wants more Unleashed?!?!

I wasn't into this line until I saw the original Vader.  Now I have them all and am really looking forward to the rest, especially that uber-cool Palpatine.

My wish list:

1.  Chewbacca "howling mad" style
2.  Gamorrean Guard
3.  Tusken Raider
4.  Stormtrooper
5.  Clonetrooper

While I do belive we'll get a Chewie and possibly a storm and clonetrooper, I doubt we'll see any of the secondary characters.  I believe Hasbro will stick to main characters, in which case, this line won't last as long I as hope it does.

Wow, ten for ESB is tough considering my love for droids and weird and wacky aliens.  My list is also based on the rumour that my #1 choice (Riekkan) is coming and we'll get R3-A2 in the Hoth 4 pack.

Anywho, here it goes:

1.  Major Bren Derlin, who knows everyone's name on Hoth
2.  Toryn Farr
3.  General Veers pre-Hoth invasion
4.  R-3PO with authentic "Thank the Maker" tatoo on his ass
5.  Ice Cream Maker Guy, just for you Scott ;)
6.  Cloud Car pilot but only if Hasbro releases something for him to fly (hint, hint Hasbro)
7.  Treva Horme, although I've never this alien in the movie this list would be mighty boring without her.
8.  Utris M'Toc, the Star Trek wannabe.  See #7 for comments
9.  non "Saturady Night Live" Lobot

Hmmm, looking at my list, I've only determined nine.  I know who I want, but since I'm too lazy to look up his name, I'll give you the actor's name.  Are you ready?  Why we don't have a figure of him yet, I have no idea.  I present you my #10 choice, the most obscure character played by a well known actor in the OT:

10.  Scott Bakula's Imperial.  That's right, the star of Quantum Leap and Necessary Roughness.  Its gold baby, I'm telling you!  Nobody would pass him up.  Get to work Hasbro.

I just had a brain fart and started a new thread before I saw this one >:(

Its about friggin time.  November is going to be a great month with Indy and LOTR:TTT extended DVDs coming out.  I can't wait.

And MisterPL, other than restoration and sound, no other changes have been made (ala guns erased in ET)

Stuff and FHM also will not be sold there.

It doesn't bother me because I subscribe to all three, which is cheaper, I don't have to go to the store to get it, don't worry about missing an issue and actually receive it approximately a week before newstands do.  Good deal in my book  ;D

Last CD bought in a store was Godsmack Faceless (not as good as their last album and not certainly no where near any good as their first) and before that was Elephant by TWS.

I had some bonus points at CH and used them to get Social Distortion Social Distortion and Lauryn Hill The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.  I wanted to get a few Weezer CDs, but alas CH doesn't stock them  :(

I saw Dallas tie it up and then fell asleep before OT started (around 10:30EST).  From the sound of it, the game seemed similar to the Flyers - Pens 5OT game a few years ago, which I did stay up to watch.  Truely an amazing game.

I love playoff hockey.

Flyers - Senators tonight.  Should be a good game.

The Pats are looking to get an interior D lineman to plug the middle and move Seymour to DE (they're plan on playing a 3-4 this year).  Right now, the rumor is them giving up their two #1's to Chicago and draft fourth to get Robertson.  If that doesn't happen, I still feel they'll try to move up ahead of the Jets as I have a stinking suspicion that they'll try to pooch the Pats. (as the Pats did to them when they drafted Matt Light a few years back)

If they don't move up, hopefully Sullivan will be there at 14, who should work well with Seymour (both Georgia grads and Sullivan backed up Seymour while they were both there).  Look for the Pats to get a O lineman with the 19th pick.

I also heard rumors of Houston swapping (plus a few in subsquent rounds) with Cinncy to take Rogers at #1.  Both Houston and Detroit need a wide out to go with their young QB.  Cinncy would still be able to take Palmer at #3.  I think it would be advantageous for Cinncy to do this.  They move up higher in the second round, still get their #1 player and wouldn't  have to pay him #1 pick money.

I'm thinking about picking up Enemy at the Gates... I've rented it before, but I can't remember if I liked it enough to buy it... So, now I gotta think real hard about the lame parts (romance)....

Also, I'll pick up TNMT and Batman, One Flew Over a Cuckoo's Nest and maybe The Longest Day, eventually...

If you find EatG for cheap, you should buy just for the shot of Rachel Weisz's bare ass  ;)

Great night for hockey tonight.  Three game 7's.  Obviously I'm rooting for the Flyers to handle the Leafs.

I would like to see the Wild get an upset, but wouldn't be mad if they lost.  I have nothing against the Avs.

In the final game 7, I'll take the Blues.



As you can see by by feedback, I don't ebay too often.  The items above complete my figural mug collection.

However, I have been eyeing a few Gamorrean Guard items for a character collection I'm thinking about starting.

Go ahead Sarge and ask a question.

Thanks for that pleasant image, Scott.  Thank God I just finished eating lunch before I saw that  :o

What is she, like 50 years older than Kurt?

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Your Bands...
« on: April 17, 2003, 12:33 PM »
Soundgarden and AIC are probably in my top three along with Zeppelin.

My tastes are pretty much the same as yours, Scott.  While not as big a fan of PJ as you, I do listen to them.  I really would love to see them live, but nobody really wants to go  :o
As for bands not mentioned:

I've seen Aerosmith three times (with a possible fourth this summer) and have never been disappointed, although I did enjoy the arena show (Worcester Centrum) more than the two outdoor shows, but I think that had to do with acoustics.  My wife absolutely loves Joe Perry.

Metallica: Never saw them live (and don't want to pay big bucks to see them tour with  Limp Bizkit and the tool of all tools, Fred Durst) While many people bash their records post And Justice for All, I actually enjoyed them.  They've grown as artists and change styles.  While the speed metal style of MoP and RtL was great in its own way, so are their other albums.  And I enjoyed S&M immensely.

And now for the guilty pleasure artist:

Bon Jovi: IMO, just go old fashion rock and roll with catchy lyrics.  Even if you're not a fan, I can bet you can see along to at least one of their songs.

Good to see the Wings go down in 4.  Guiere (sp?) is one hot goalie right now and goaltending wins championships.

Flyers-Leafs went to trip OT and the friggin game wasn't on in Boston  >:( >:(  Glad to see they tied the series up.  Next game is a Saturday matinee.  I'll actually be in the Philly area this weekend, so everything should be hopping.
