The "post sober" motto seems to continue...  :)

Vinty figures?  I'd have killed the man myself...  Modern I woulda let it slide with maybe a knee-capping or some such.  That's me though, my friends are merely place-holders so I look better as a person.

Well, I was gonna do the picture joke...  Matt killed it, but I'm doing it anyway.

There ya go old fart.

Welp, not ALL the figures I want of course, but many nonetheless.

I'd say Hem, Hermi, Bom, and Veers all are figures I'd love to see...  Veers especially if he's got the removable armor/helmet, belt, and officer's cap.  Excellent.

While I like the list, I think this is a list of figures that would rock if mixed in with a variety of other "types".  Army builders namely, but resculpts of main characters as well have their place I think... 

It's good, and I think all of the top 10 have a strong chance at plastic between 2005 and 2006.  :)

Hey Jeff, glad you've stopped by.  The more the merrier...  usually. :P

Take it easy man, and anything you're curious about feel free to ask any of us.

I'm perplexed at this too, especially because where they're from is a VERY high traffic area.  Then again everyone's saying the Scanner Tech is around for $3 and I've yet to see this figure on pegs... 

Maybe it's just where I'm going that sucks?  Where I went tonight is an odd jaunt for me because it's not my usual haunt, but I was in the city so I made this run.  Glad I did and that my friends didn't wanna meet us out tonight or I never would've even gone up there.

BTW on the site I found that image at this is a really nice CG shot.

Very sensitive primate he is.  He likes bunnies.

This is but take away the bucket he's on and stuff.  He's just painting.

I don't know if it's a painting or what...  It's 1 in a series of 4, and she
won't tell me where the other 3 are so she can have something to get me
for gifts because she says I'm hard to buy for.

I suppose when almost all you want is stuff only YOU know you can find
and when you usually do find it yourself quickly, then yeah you're hard to
buy for.

Sadly I think you're right Bob.  Disease being the biggest looming threat, and now panics of more tsunamis because of increased seismic activity.

Truly terrible, and not much more to add to it than that from my end of things.  I just hope everyone can be as safe as they can and as many happy stories can come out of this now as are possible.

Bob,

Go to www.photobucket.com and set up an account.  Real simple, really reliable, or so I've found.  My buddy Dan uses a Yahoo set-up to host photos too that he shares after we've been out or when he's been somewhere and took pictures...  That's an idea.

I'm a photobucket fan though ever since someone showed that site to me.

What's it doing, exactly?

BTW while it can do that, the VOTC Stormtrooper's still better...  It looks like something other than an artists tool that has lego hands. :)

I'd say that Old School is the only one that anyone should show shame for stealing.  That movie deserves every dime it earns.

Beyond that the people who made those other ones should be thankful anyone wanted them enough to take in the first place and that they still have careers after making them.

Someone's a Stiller fan by the way...

Benoit also won the "World's tallest midget" award, but I think that was at another ceremony.

Didn't he play the tall Jawa in ANH?

That Zam speeder is still an attrocious POS in and of itself.

#1 anything that size should be done to-scale, no excuses.
#2 if Hasbro took the time to actually research their own product, they'd have realized that the paint on the rubbery part of the ship would react with the materials used to construct the "damage" feature, and would forever remain tacky.

The Zam speeder is a lint/cat hair magnet.   ::)  Brilliant guys, just brilliant.

Anakin's speeder suffered from the same scale issues, though at least the engine cowls (why'd the damn thing have a damage feature in the first place, when it never even crashes?  Stupid...) weren't tacky for all eternity.  Still a sucky vehicle.  Got 'em for $3 each as I recall and still regret it.

Good fodder scores Jason.  My purchases tonight were:

1 Ozzel for $3
1 Lando Skiff (Saga) for $3
1 Gold Leader for $3
4 VOTC Stormtroopers for $7 each
1 VOTC Vader for $7

I got a couple more WM's and Targets to hit up possibly tomorrow.  Word is some have Scanner techs, which I want ONE (Figure still sucks) just because the paintjob's so vastly superior on it.

Lotta stores are bare-to-the-bone empty though now.  Especially Target and TRU who seemingly have nothing, though I have to admit I haven't been in many TRU's lately.

He shoots he scores!

Tonight I went out for New Year's Eve, and all we basically did was go out for dinner and have some beers.  We were done right away so I said, "Hey, wanna run up Route 8 to Wal-Mart" and she went right along with it...

OK, so I got 3 old Saga figures for $3 each for customizing...  Then I said, "Hey, wanna run up the Turnpike to Cranberry now?" and she said, "OK" so we were off to another stop...  Target had just closed (dammit, what store closes at 10?  Pfft), so we went to the Wal-Mart then which is 24 hours...

SCORE!  4 VOTC Stormtroopers for $7.  They had one Fett I left and some ESB figures too (Vaders, Yodas, and Landos).  Not a single other ROTJ than the 4 Stormies and Fett, which is odd, because it means someone (or multiple people) were in and got the Chewies, R2's, the other Fett's, etc...  And left 4 Stormtroopers.  Weird, but lucky for me. 

The army is at 19 for me.  Now I want at least one more for an even 20.  ;D
