Other Toy Lines / Re: The Official 21st Century Toys Thread
« on: September 9, 2004, 08:58 PM »
A neat score at the local TRU last night...

Someone bought the BBI Apache Helicopter and returned it because, I am assuming here, they broke the one pack-in pilot.  One of them has his arm glued at the bicep (in a relatively straight pose), so I'm assuming they were twisting the joints and broke it.  I know the wrist joints on both pilot pack-ins were tight.

So anyway, the box is resealed and the contents are just thrown in.  They're rattling all around.  Low and behold the price is $9.90.  A $40, to-scale, amazingly detailed chopper for $10.50 after tax.

One busted pilot's nothing for that price, so I bought it...  I wasn't sure it was complete actually, but I figured even if not then I'd just make a custom downed Apache diorama.  I could sorta finegal that.

Low and behold the chopper's complete and in pristine shape though.  $10.50 got me my Apache with one pilot that has a non-functioning left arm at the elbow.  Yippee!  :)  I'll take that thank ya!

Divine justice...  Personally I wouldn't have had a thought of remorse had the bullet gone somewhere more vital to him staying alive.

Shame the vigilante puppy didn't act sooner to help his/her siblings out.

Celebration III: Indianapolis / Re: Star Wars Celebration 3

Contacted my hotel today, just to confirm, and I'm still good...  Bumped it up to me arriving Wednesday as well.  WOOHOO.  A night of drunken revalry beforehand.

Clubs in Pittsburgh are 21 to get in FOR THE MOST PART, so I dunno that you'll be in much luck Famine.  Just a heads up.  Depends where you look...  Some are 18 + in my neck, but not the vast majority, and those that are 18+ usually aren't overly popular, especially among the 21+ crowd.

Same era...  I'd say JUST before N'Sync came on the scene...  I think BsB were probably "bigger" at one time.

Nick Lachey was in 98 degrees or something right around the same time.  I have to admit I give him respect.  He manages money well and after watching that show he's in with his wife I can safely say he's a very patient person.

Jesus Christ what has my life come to that I'm discussing this!?

Ah, I see...  Hmmm, oh well I guess...  Some of it brings some good nostalgia in, but I dunno that I'd wanna play pong for hours like I used to.

Totally agree with Jesse that the 3-pack clones felt cheap, but since we also got the SA Clone to balance it out, I found them to be great filler.

I agree that with a SA version they're not so bad...  The price and everything balancing out.

The problem being that, as ya mentioned, Hasbro's shite at giving us the GOOD figure and experts at giving the crappy ones.  I'm hoping, as Vator is, that things are the other way... 

Optomistic's something I abandoned a while back I guess though.  Hasbro's proven they don't do what's most logical to us, and what would push sales.

SA Clones?  There's not a sole out there who could tell me those would ever "back up" at retail.  They'd always move steadily...  The demand there is only finite in conjunction with the finances of the buyer.  I think most SA army builders would be that way really...  There's rare exceptions, but the Clone wouldn't be one of them.

The 3-packs though are nice if they do have a SA counterpart that's easy to find, and in multiples.  Hell, pack ONE SA figure in with 2 pre-posed in the 3-pack.  Save a little tooling costs.  Still card one individually.  I'd still buy the 3-packs then.

I'd do that with all army builders if they just did that one, easily available SA army builder as well. 

I think that translates to core characters too.  You give me that one nice SA Obi-Wan and I'll take 3 pre-posed with expressions that represent a single scene as well.  And ya know I'd even be happy to do so.  :) 

VOTC Han, to me, improves Death Star Escape Han in my eyes 100%.  Suddenly DSE Han's pretty damn cool because VOTC Han's everything I want for a "playable" figure and DSE Han will look kick-ass on a shelf made to look like the Death Star.

SA shouldn't kill the pre-posed figures, it should just make them complements to the SA figure.  Poses you can't get out of that figure.

Noone thinks of me in a big series of slapping man-hams.  I'm hurt and elated at the same time.

Indeed, happy B-Day again.

I've found Sept. to be the month...  Like 3 people I know well have B-Days on or the day after mine.  Weird.  January-ish must be a busy time of year.

My mother's and brother's were this week (Mom's today).

So happy birthday all around and definitely to the traitorous trader.  :)

As I mentioned elsewhere, the JD staff is happy to see this is resolved...  It's a shame it took so long though, and such hastle.

It's sorted out now though, so that's a plus at least.

I was more honoring your intellect that you'd be the only one with $ when everything was said and done, while the rest of us have an E! True Hollywood Story or are forced to host the Kid's Choice awards.

BTW this is the Backstreets Boys Princess...  They're dreamy.

It's ok to be "particular"...  Or gay for that matter, but straight and particular is ok too...  if you can take the ridicule.  :)

Come on guys!  Break out some harmony with me!
