Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Bachelor Parties
« on: February 3, 2005, 08:36 PM »
Hmmm, it's been a while...  I was supposed to go to one this year (near fall) but just in
the last couple weeks my buddy known as "Shemp" broke up with his woman
who had a gambling addiction (seriously) to Bingo.  I **** you not on this.

He's better off I say.

Anyway, that one was gonna be good because his best man already had a whole strip club in the city
reserved for us, and that woulda been nice.  Oh well.

The last one I was at then was a couple years ago for my buddy Matt.

In general we have a pattern for parties and they're pretty well simplified.  We go to a
bar/restaurant or restaurant to eat, most often Hooters.  Then we go to a bar to drink unless
where we were at is a bar as well and we wanna hang there.  If it's Hooters, we go to a bar then
afterward so we can do shots and stuff.  Get all liquored up.  Then we usually go to a strip club unless
that's a faux pau as far as the bride-to-be is concerned (not my choice I suppose, otherwise I'd force
the bachelor to go).

Club Erotica in Pittsburgh's our usual stop there, and we spend the rest of the evening there...  One time
till it closed around 4 a.m. which was a blast.

Now, I've been to other set-ups...  That's just my small group's "template" bachelor party we've used for friends
over the years...  Some of our friends have no guts though and "weren't allowed" to go to a strip club so we
instead went out to bars/clubs in the city, and eventually get someone at one of those places to take a shirt off
or something.  Gotta have boobie somewhere.

But at another party I was at for someone I sorta knew through my friend, they had rented the top of a club
in the city, and they'd gotten a private show with two girls.  Best bachelor party ever, and what all went on
goes beyond what I can say here even with our more mellow rules. :)  It was a fun show though.

After one Bachelor Party I woke up in my tub with the shower running, and I was short my shirt from the night
before but I had a nice fleece blanket from somewhere.  That was a fun night.

I didn't care for this show myself...  That's just me though.  I was more PO'd that Spike took TNG and DS9 (right when they got rights to DS9) and put them on at like 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., when I can't watch them.

The evening timeslots rocked...   >:(

Have you seen Dragon figures?  Well, outside of being used as hostages anyway...

They're incredible.  ;D

I think the best part was the guy from DML USA saying it was a compliment to him that so many people thought it was real.  It was on the Daily Show last night and got a pretty good laugh from Stewart...

He then went onto say, "No!  You removed it from the box and now it has no value!!!"  :)  Classic.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Would you have changed the Preview Wave?
« on: February 3, 2005, 08:11 PM »
In my neck, the R3 actually sold better than Jango or Zam, and I'd say it was on-par with the Clone...  Ironically those figures shipped again to TRU not TOO long ago (I think most areas were seeing that), and I actually couldn't get another R3 (was hoping to find one or two to repaint), whereas I saw all the other 3...

Still see almost all the other 3 though the Clone is drying up now as well.  R3's long gone again though out here.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Basic Figure Leak: Already?
« on: February 3, 2005, 08:05 PM »
My favorite is that apparantly INDY plans his stops based on the front page news of sites like us, Scum, or GH...    They're all reliable sites (not to toot our own horn) and it's funny that ours just doesn't set well with INDY or Pete_Fett or some others...  :)

INDY then can't find E3 figures leaked early on his way to school or work, so he then cries foul.  I guess every time I visit the Pittsburgh local forum, and my buddy Dave or Bob says "Hey, figures here...." and I go that evening to look and they have nothing, that apparantly I should assume Dave and Bob lied to me or something?

It makes no sense...

You truly were (and are) banging your head off a brick wall on that one Matt.  They're gonna come back again and again with the reply that you "simply don't understand" what they're saying, even though you've answered them clearly every time.

Fight the good fight though...  I find it even better than Mike Sullenger at GH pretty much confirmed us, and then Dan Curto from Scum came in and verified it too...  But the die-hards there won't back off their argument.  To them they need to see the body I guess.

I wonder if they act this immature when "The Swami" posts a list of figures?  I know I just get giddy at the thought of what is pretty well coming out soon, while I guess Pete_Fett and INDY just sit and brude till they wait on Hasbro to get off their ass and announce it...  Or is that news they are ok with?

I feel like I should wear a black armband for your loss dude.  I really do. :(

I think a soldier you re-release later in the regular line more abundantly (even if you relase a lotta Preview figs) is a good idea...

I like an astromech myself though.  Hell I think astromechs should make it into tons of waves (classic and prequal) just because they sell, they cost little, and...  uh...  they sell.  I dig the little roving trash cans.

I think a Clone in the preview wave's a good idea.  A SA, action feature-less clone that would see a re-release LATER on after the film's blitz...  Or, if I had my way, he'd be the Clone relased in the regular line, but I digress.

The Wookie Warrior's good, especialy if he's getting a basic line variant too.

That'd leave a spot open for me to keep either Greivous or Tion, or nix them both...  Part of me says a Greivous, just to pump people, is necessary so I'd likely leave him.

What?  Did he turn into Jello at this point?  :)  (I can't stand him, sorry)

I dunno...  High School Hockey's taking some steam here now that the Steelers are done...  Pitt Basketball's all we got till Spring Training, and I hate baseball so that nixes much for sports for me till Steelers kick in again...

They've been playing Pens highlight games.  I was heading out and caught that they were airing Lemieux's first game the other night, I think...  That or it was just a highlight for part of some show, but it was a long-ass highlight.

Oh well.  :-\

Other Toy Lines / Re: Terminator Toy Line... 4" Scale.
« on: February 2, 2005, 09:04 PM »
BTW,

I hope the T2 line isn't limited to like Arnie, an Endo Termie, or things like that...  The line was described specifically as an "army builder" toy line... 

Could it be we'll see resistance fighter/Endo Skeleton 2-packs?  Perhaps a vehicle or two?  That'd be some ideal stuff.  The human resistance aspect of the Terminator series always intrigued me more than the time-travel storylines...  I preferred the flashback scenes MUCh more.  That's a series unto itself that I'd watch intently.

The aliens...  That's a toughie on scale because they varied in the films even, but the costume was actually a guy in it in the original alien, and also in Aliens too I believe (at least at times), and so the height's about that of an average dude...

I've never compared the kenner figures to Hasbro SW figures, but if I held one of those aliens next to VOTC Han, Bespin Capture Han, etc. and it matched up fairly well (little taller but looked like an average size guy in a big costume), then I would think highly of the scale... 

I want to get some of those figures.  Some are in stock I just am not real high on fundage right now...  I could definitely at least use an alien and a predator...  Just something for a little taste of what the others would be like.

This talk of 4"-ish scaled figures really has me jonesing even more for figures in this scale.

LOTR right now would be my ultimate pick for the 1:18-ish scale treatment...  Star Trek would be right up there though so those sound intriguing.

What I like about those kits you showed me Mr.PL is that they appear to actually yield a VERY poseable figure.  As poseable or more so than most any SW figure short of perhaps a SA figure.  I'm intrigued and may just get a couple of what they do have to test them out...  Pose 'em next to a Stormie squad like they're ripping them apart. :)

Well, he's dead at least...

We can always just say a really tough stormtrooper punched him in the chest and caved it in.  That's why it looks like it does. :)

His helmet sticking to his head, even when dead, will always be an enigma though.

Hey Christopher,

Welcome to Jedi Defender, and it'll be nice having someone active in the vintage area and video games...  Good to have the additional voices in those two areas.

Thanks for stopping by and if you've got any questions feel free to ask away...  I'm sure you're used to the routine from other boards though.  We keep things loose here though so enjoy yourself.

Take it easy man,

JJ

 :-\  Well, it seems like they don't have many of them, and those they do have are sold out for the most part (not all)...  That sorta sucks.

I wonder where I could get a case, and what it'd run me?  I'd dig having one of those chase figures, bigtime!
