9 chances out of 10 the NE is always last to get anything.  I think it's all the pot
hole filled roads myself.  Truckers don't wanna come up.

The tank you speak of Famine is the 1:6 scale Stuart tank.

It's made for the 12" action figures by 21st...  I'd like one myself.

21st had a little video of it set to music on their site, and the thing is
really incredible.  Going up steep hills, turret moving.  Looked like a blast.

Greg(g) thing is exactly what I thought...  Good eye to get it before removed.

Nice man...

The jets are friggin' HUGE I hear.  Definitely a put down to anything Hasbro
has offered up IMO.  Giant, and definitely worth their price.  Most I've seen them
ring up around is $80 or so, and that's online.  I hear they're cheaper
at TRU stores.

Not that I've seen one at a TRU, but I digress.
 
I'd like to nab one...  Something in a general paintjob...  Nothing special
like the blue angels or the fictional black jet I hear is shipping.

I only want one jet though.  I can't go overboard on those.  I can't afford the $
or space for all the WW2 planes I've got, much less modern stuff which dwarfs
the old planes.  :)

The computers settings and the pegs haven't transitioned together.  I'm hearing about this all over the place.  The publicly shown price is the price though...  It's false advertising otherwise, and you'd have a gripe WAY beyond the service desk if they tried saying "welp, you gotta pay $5.88". 

That's a bigtime no-no, and could be argued as false advertising (or simply, lying), or "bait & switch" selling in a way. 

They just don't have their crap together though, that's all.

I'll try finding them Morg, but so far only one sighting in my neck of the woods unfortunately, and sold out.  I'll try though!

I've always gotten along with LJ, but I have to admit that what's being said is true.  She's a post-count/padding champion.  She always has been, and it's cost her respect from a vast majority.

I don't mind DBB as a person either...  I think LJ and DBB are probably good people.  The same can't be said for my opinion of the other monkeys in the cage, like Yoda Boi, General Windu, etc...  Those guys irk the **** out of me because their personalities are in the toilet along with their habits at the site. 

That said though, DBB and LJ tend to not represent ideals in behavior, especially from a site that bitches about post-padding like Scum does.  They hired GNT though, so the tone has been set.  What can you really say about it at this point?

Anything's fair game I guess.

Word on the street is that the BBI Shermans have shipped and are arriving.

Good news to me, I just hope the figures are a short distance behind.

WW2's sorely missing mucho figures at this point.  BBI could be
the 1:18 salvation.  Even if they have to market enemies online
only at this point.

If they did, I'd be all over some enemy modern, enemy WW2, enemy
Nam, etc....  Any non-PC Enemy from any era actually.  It would open
up the door for some of the enemies that weren't even touchable
before the pressure to drop all German product on TRU.  Stuff like
Waffen SS, honor guards, or even specific characters like a
Rommell figure.  Be a nice compliment to 21st's Patton figures.

Beth, thanks for the heads up that he's NOT as bad off as he and I had predicted.

Morg, I'm gonna try finding them here...  If desperation sets in though, my bro's an opener and we may be sending a distress call your way.

I wanted a few of the army builder-esque guys myself too, and Shelob...  I'm cutting most of the LOTR stuff out though, due to $$$ just not being there for it.  Having a significant other can cost too much, and so do Star Wars things, so something had to give...  LOTR was right there.

For you LOTR fans though, you may find it interesing/sad/humorous that I have a "J.R.R. Tolkein Studies I" course next semester.  I don't know how to view that, but it sounded great...  And yes, it's just a BS filler course for my Gen Electives, but I want to take stuff I think I'm gonna like for many of those, short of a few to give my major(s) some focus.

Anyway, thought you'd enjoy that.

I'll keep hopping in here with little updates on what my bro has/doesn't have.

I know he and I are both wanting the Super Poseable Boromir, and I wanna nab the Aragorn (any resculpt that's SP really).  Should be fun tracking all this down.   /end sarcasm

My eyes gravitated right to it...

Pink sweaters on guys are usually the last thing I look at.  I know that's not all the staff's view, but it's mine.  :)   :-X

Hooters frown is classic, and kinda disturbing like the exagerrated features in a Missy Elliot video.

Hey Jared,

Ironic, but I was JUST unloading some NES boxes the other day...  We had HUNDREDS of games between my 2 brothers and I, and now basically we'd like to sell...

Do NES systems & games go for any decent $ at all?  We had the original with the robot even.  We really gotta unload these, but I'd hate to sell them for $.50 a game or something.  That'd really just hurt, thinking about all the $ put into them, ya know?

No?  :(  Sorry...  It's always embarassing when I pull out the helmet only to find I was mistaken.

Plinko was spiffy, and I remember actually feeling a little bit anxious and excited, even from home.  Could've been the prize girls though, I dunno.

But I liked the game with the mountain climber as well...  The song was creepy, but I remember as a young child how I would sorta be scared when the dude went over the edge.  There was an equal rush when he'd just stop at the very end.

It was cool...  And I wanted to play with the game itself with my G.I. Joes on it.  Dunno why, but it looked like a neat Cobra Mountain playset to me.

Saw it just a while ago...  Pretty interesting.  As much as I know DBB's popularity, he's not a bad person at least...  In that regard, they could've DEFINITELY made worse choices...

Jeff's, to be exact.

But, yeah, it does have to be somewhat of an insult to you KBZ, considering... 

He's got the qualities they want.  He's there 24/7 it seems, he is generally indifferent from what I've seen, and GNT seems to have set the tone for post padding being somewhat of a plus as well.

So be it...

The horsemen of the RS apocalypse are Jeff's picks though.  *shudder*

They're a kindergarten class run amock.
