Hey I don't blame you at all Scott.

I'd be the last person to claim anyone's overreacting or something...  It sucks.  I'd probably be irate if it were on a figure I maybe was more interested in...  Not that I'm NOT interested in Dannik, but I guess the background guys get less excitement from me... 

This were an army builder though and I'd be pissed.

But I'm not happy with it either.  It's ugly, it's unnecessary, and the EU concept behind it wasn't good in the first place which is really irritating.  I think that Hasbro THOUGHT they were doing the right thing...  They weren't, but maybe they thought they were doing us a favor on this one?

Like they were at the board room and one guy stood up and said "hey, this Dannik guy has this weird face pouch with sucker things, let's make that on him and make it removable".  Everyone cheered because they thought it'd be something the weirdoes like us would like, but little did they know that the gaping holes would irritate.

If it were an articulation point that made it slightly less aesthetically pleasing, I'm cool with that.  Articulation is a feature/function any action figure should have IMO.  The big pores on his noggin' are ugly though, and just silly.

I agree...  I'm just not as upset I guess, but I agree.  It's stupid, and was overkill on Hasbro's part.

I'm maybe just happy to get a Dannik figure at all, and maybe the ease of filling the holes in is what makes me think "eh" about it.  I agree though, it's up there in stupidity.  They did ruin an otherwise (near) perfect figure.

Dumb of them...  No doubt.

I could do it... 

You see, doing it for Matt would be easy.  Doing it for myself though...  I'd want to get a 2nd Dannik, pop the head, fill the holes, mold it, cast it in proper color(s) and then paint it all up...

So yeah, I doubt it'd happen in MY style, but if you want the holes filled with something, Matt, and then them painted over...  That's simple.

BTW I'd fill them with 2-part epoxy or something.  Devcon plastic welder woudl be better I think...  More durable, more plastic-like. 

Personally, I'm likely just gonna leave my Dannik alone...  It's **** looking, but I'm happy just to get him and the EU feature's "eh" to me.  Kinda neat, but I'll just deal with the holes...  It's the figures only real drawback though to me...  Maybe the elbows too, but the face is the only thing that bugs me.

JD Sports Forum! / Re: NFL 2004

I'd say tonight was Pittsburgh's sloppiest performance, aside from Ben's drive at the end to set up the field goal.  By the way, everyone on that team owes Reed a drink for putting it on target.

Anyway, they're not healthy, but nonetheless the offensive and defensive lines both played like shazbot, and the running game was stifled...  I hated the commentary, and I felt the cameramen did a piss poor job tonight, but I'll agree with the commentators that Bettis should've been doing MOST of the running with Staley regaining his legs in a supporting role...  Not the other way around.

An ugly game, even if a win, and generally poorly played.  I think if this is the effort put forth on the remainder of the schedule, the Steelers won't look too hot going into the playoffs.

NOT Dead...  Just saw her on TV (current TV) not that long ago, and she seemed rather spry and funny actually.

I was going to guess that he injested somethign while chasing a white rabbit down a hole, then he decided to "space surf" while enjoying the pill's effects.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Pics to names 2 - The 2004 Holiday Season

In the spirit of all that is good, I'd like to share our holiday photo here. This is the picture we'll be sending with our cards this year, who else cares to share?



Merry Christmas, and all that. ;)

Your picture looks like a Penney's ad.  :) 

Not that I'm implying any insult by the way.  It's very "perfect" seeming.  That's cool...  :)  Very nice family...  Even the pissed off dog.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS Nemoidian Soldier
« on: December 6, 2004, 12:22 AM »
Word out of Hasbro's been that they realize the potential with "army building" a bit more than they have in the past...  The Neimodian's a neat sounding figure, and a must-have, so I'm just hoping he'll be a worthy figure in the end.

Judging by most articulation seen, I think he will.  I hope they follow the design in Insider as well.  Nice continuity.  It was a pretty great design anyway as I recall.

Other Toy Lines / Re: The Official 21st Century Toys Thread
« on: December 5, 2004, 09:30 PM »
Power Team Elite has some things available on KBToys.com of interest.

Includes a look-out tower, their command base, and their littlebird.  Not sure if anyone's into these.  They're nice items.

Little talk going on in the genre otherwise right now which is sorta sucky.  Things were rumored, and right now nothing.  I'm hoping 21st comes through with what they are claiming but you'd think X-Mas would be a time to push some.

Lord of the Rings one is great.

When token comes out and says "That's it...  I'm done...", claps his hands and holds them up and then goes in his house.

Then later when the parents confront him, try to explain "love & sex", and his reply...  Absolutely classic.

Cartman's remark to the kids playing Harry POtter was great too.  :)

Weird Al Yankovich:  Dare to be Stupid

Yup, my first album I ever bought.  I did have some records bought for me to play on my mother's record player.  A PAC Man record, some Star Wars and Joe Records, and a Rolling Stone 45.  :P

The Matrix still isn't good, so she isn't that creative either.

Nonetheless, (hopefully) Justice prevailed and she gets her due.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS Fleet Troops - A New Hope?
« on: December 4, 2004, 01:15 AM »
If it meant a new figure like I'd like, I'd be all for it.  I'd just rearrange WHERE the Rebel's uniform came from in my EU sense of things....  That the ALliance just adopted a uniform Alderaan was creating for it or something along those lines. 

Their non-violent part in the effort.

If it got a SA Fleet Trooper though...  Whatever it takes. :)

The gaping holes aren't cool, but...  I'm still overall pleased with him.  The things are unnecessary though, and sorta silly. 

No holster on Gotal's kinda, eh, too.  Give him a hip or ankle one...  No big deal, but whatever.  I guess he's just always ready for a gunfight.

Myo's a 2nd favorite for me, as I've wanted a Dannik Jerriko for a while, and I'm gonna label Gotal as 3rd.  No real reason, as I would say each is equal to the other.  I'm just ranking them this way because I like Myo and Dannik more as characters I've wanted made.
