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.

Just throwing in my dislike of the cards too.  Figures so far getting a +, and cards a - for me.  Craptacular guys!

The OTC spoiled us.  Won't be long till it's back I believe.  :)  Or at least I hope...

Poseable, and a hidden feature are good.  Can't say what the leg poseability is, but the arms are looking good.  To me I'm not underwhelmed...  So far.

MILES better than Saga's initial offerings, without a doubt.

The photos are so grainy and terrible, that making out any real detail is a pain in the ass...

The astromech I'm actually happy to get, as I would buy repaints of Astromechs all year round.

Tion's been seen so I'm not excited on him.

Like others, I wish the photos were clearer.  I'd like to see Obi and Mace closer up and higher res, but to me they look half decent...  Surprisingly.  Short of them having a possible button, which seems very unlikely now, I'm content. 

I'm happy to see that, even with action features, they're waking up to the realization that articulation is a BIG aspect to the Boys Toys market, and that it can make or break a toy line.  Took them what, 26 years or so?  :)  Way to go.   :P

Why didn't Lucas focus in on anything GOOD like this?

We saw Rebels getting offed and some helping others...  Why not this?  Dude needs some lessons on the minor things that brought out the old films more, because that is a cool photo.

Hah, another Steelers win...   :D

Whoooo!

Saw a picture online once...  Said the only sign of intelligent life in Cleveland was a roadsign saying how far it was to Pittsburgh on the Turnpike.  How true.  :P ;)

Thanks Beth,

Now I just gotta sort through and figure out what's out there he doesn't have.  I know Gamling's among them, but there's a LOT more.  Moria Orc and some olders like that that were tough to get, but it's mostly new stuff...  At least the Shelob wave onward.  And I wanted one of her too.   ::)
