Dr. P (or anyone), can you do me a favor and take some measurements of the JSF for me?  Any of them would be fine of course.

Wing-tip to Wing-tip, nose to tail, and if you can get a "height" measurement I'd appreciate it but it'd be a bit more difficult to get accurately I know.

Thanks!

Ulf's always attested that it wasn't intentional, was purely an accident with both of them having their knees out trying to avoid the hit...  It happens I guess, and I like to think it wasn't something Samuelson did with malice because it did end a great player's career real early.

Not to mention that ESPN's filled with A-holes itself...  I've despised their coverage.  I'd sooner read about it in the paper than listen to Al Morganty.

OK, move along...  move along.  ;)

Don't worry about it Jessica, it's just sometimes a post can be confusing so I'm sure it was just a mistake in haste was all.

The guidelines linked to are good things for everyone to check out around the site I think...  We don't want to be too pushy with them though so if the staff feels a need to step in and bring them to someone's attention we'll get on that, but remember to keep things friendly everyone. ;)

Latex is VERY quick to break down unfortunately.  I've used it to work with molding/casting, and you're definitely not gonna get much mileage out of it.

That said, it may not be latex used on the Yoda or the Cave Trolls and the like...

It may just be a similar, and cheap rubber.  Wouldn't surprise me.  Later Trolls fixed the problem using a stronger material, generally a Silicone rubber that has a longer life I think (I also use these frequently in casting).  A means of maintaining the material can be the same way you maintain weather stripping on convertibles, by using silicone sprays.  It's a bitch but it could work. 

I hope that's able to help some?   :-\  Or at least give some reason for anger anyway.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Are Stormtroopers Clones?
« on: August 19, 2005, 01:14 AM »
If the Empire's instituting xenophobic/speciesist policies though as its power is consolidated though, then alien cultures become less important to their military machine.  But there again it depends if you agree with them being xenophobic and also depends on how you view humans in the galaxy...  Like if they're the dominant species by a long shot or what.  They certainly seem it.

I'm all for the idea that the Empire has anti-alien views and all that stuff, but some disagree with that because the films don't really say it outright plus the Alliance is sporting a ton of Aliens either until the battle of Endor we see them...  But all-human (or nearly all human) institutes within the Alliance are definitely possible (especially if humans are, again, the dominant species of the galaxy).  It's all very complex though because it's so easy for nobody to agree.

I guess the bet is still open though man. :)

So you're someone who bastardizes Ulf Samuelson then Jesse? :)

He was one of my idols as a defenseman myself when I first started hockey...  Since I started fairly old (especially by Canadian standards) I was always stuck on D.  Hated it.

Ah, well I guess those have shown here...  now...  I dunno.  I didn't buy them, but they had plenty it seemed.

I think I have extras of her too.

Monkey face...  hah!

Feedback / Re: Scott's feedback

Scott hooked me up with some of his army building extras from over the years.  A nice AAT, some STAPs, and a slew of Droid Fighters.  The Separatist ranks grow!

Thanks Scott, pleasure of course to deal with...  Fast, and puts up with me dilly dallying on paying him too. :)  Plus my ineptness with Pay Pal!

Thanks man, I appreciate it!

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: The Tantive IV is... NOT the Tantive IV?
« on: August 18, 2005, 11:18 PM »
I loved that ship of hers. 

The Enterprise though, in AGT, I remember it ripping right through the hull of a Klingon Warbird like it was a hot knife through butter.  Sweeeeeet.

ST:TNG and DS9 (at their respective ends) had probably the best Space Battles short of Star Wars.

I hit up Target tonight, and no Clones but they DID have the clamshell case packs out in abundance.

I thought those were a bust and got recalled since they didn't fit?

Thoughts?

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Build your own lightsaber
« on: August 18, 2005, 11:09 PM »
I actually really want this, and I'd love to get the kids each one, but at $35 a pop that's steep.   :-\  The only place out here with them is Target currently.

If I could find them at Wm I'd get 2 on lay-away to ease the sting of that buy.

If the droids were made of a decent plastic, I wouldn't cry foul on a re-release of them either.  Cream, Red, EU Green, and a Commander would all be welcome...

Just gotta get the plastic fixed.  It's fine on the Episode One versions, and they have an extra joint in their legs, so Hasbro's just letting everyone down on those.

I scored Marine figures tonight, finally.   ::)  And the one rifleman they only had in camo so I had to settle.  I don't like the camo though since it wasn't heavily used in the pacific theater.

Gotta pop these open! :)

Not a fan of the headsculpts on some, and the hands that are molded so you can't use them on some are REALLY F'n annoying.

Finally some Leathernecks.  Now I need to find those Japanese.  The cardbacks show 2 of the same Japanese guy though.  I hope that's a mistake.  Some of their headsculpts look almost racially stereotypical.  Kinda frightening.
