Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Stupid **** From the Internet Thread.
« on: January 11, 2005, 03:20 AM »
I liked how they basically said long hair could make you dumb.

While one could agree if they know many dumb long-haired people, the whole article just made me laugh with its absurdity.  I mean, they honestly said,

 "consumes a great deal of nutrition" and could thus rob the brain of energy

That's why I keeps my hair nice and short.  It's brain food baby!  Hair is the glutton of the body.  Using up all my valuable stored energy.

God damn hair.  May go shave my head now. 

Thank you North Korea, for yet another laugh.

BTW who's going to tell Capt. Supercuts here to get his hair cut?  I mean, the "Don King" went out a long time ago...  if it was ever in.

Stupid ****, and on the net but more aptly titled "Stupid **** From North Korea" tonight I guess...

Were they turning into San Fancisco or something?  They're suddenly sick of "dirty hippies". :)  Guess that whole "Try to feed your people" thing can take a back seat for a while.

I just found this article very funny.

JD Sports Forum! / Re: NFL Playoffs!
« on: January 10, 2005, 09:58 PM »
West meets East, and West will cremate the opposition of course.  ;D

BTW, ESPN and Fox are combined to make the worst sports-casting of all time in any sport.  Fox ruined any NHL coverage it ever had, and ESPN ruins any coverage of anything it has.

I dont' know anyone in Pittsburgh who wasn't trying to coordinate their radios to their TV's on that last ESPN hosted game the Steelers had (forget who we even played...  I was out X-Mas shopping I think).  They're attrocious on all levels.  Probably worried about FCC fines because of the "mooning".

it was an ass malfunction maybe.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Trooper 4 Packs!
« on: January 10, 2005, 09:52 PM »
The $6-ish price, on the case orders that is, is tolerable I've come to grips with...  Though it's more than $6.25 I've found I think.  $6.75-ish a figure was what our total came to out here in Pittsburgh.  I mighta found a 2nd case I can get in on and get 2 extra white sets (1 BD & 1 Clean).

That's not bad...  Not great, and no 4 in a white mailer price, but it ain't no $10 a figure crock of **** they've been trying.  The extreme variances in price also tell me that either they needed to ALSO offer a completely white case (no officers) or at least offer a 3-set of white Clones for the $6-ish price.  I'd have been pretty content with that I believe.  These gaps in prices are shady though, if you ask me.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: The Mustafar Playset...
« on: January 10, 2005, 02:45 PM »
The set's confirmation came with the Insider #80 today, as per the front page.

Not much detail released though, but it did say the "Action Assortment" of battling figures will interlock with the playset.  Sounds interesting to me.

Playsets tend not to do well, so I'm going to be curious as to this set's popularity.  If it's nicely done as far as proportions and things, I'm in.  Playsets have the luxury of giving you a to-scale PIECE of a scene.  That's one area that I wish larger vehicles would simply be made into a section and act as a playset rather than a stand-alone vehicle.

As a collector I'd much rather have had something like that than the Sandcrawler as it is now, or say an attempt at a dwarfed down Tantive IV.  That's my take on things though...  LEave bigger vehicles like those to the Action Fleet line, just do them to-scale for it instead.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Star Wars Strategy Game Coming
« on: January 10, 2005, 12:29 PM »
Eh, yeah, but I just hate when they do dumb **** like that.  Take the old design, use it, and just bedone with it.  I'd say they felt it wasn't logically laid out, which I can't say I disagree with, but respect those who "created" it, ya know? 

And the Alliance tanks look to NOT be the Force Commander/G Battlegrounds tanks, which were perfectly designed and quite "Star Wars-ish" I thought.  Again I think they're taking themselves too seriously with bashing the old RTS games and trying to distance themselves from it.

The irony is they took the EU design of the AT-AT barge that Force Commander actually created, and that the ICS books adapted for their own use.  I think they didn't realize that FC came up with that design. :)

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Star Wars Strategy Game Coming
« on: January 10, 2005, 01:59 AM »
And the front page now has more information on this game with links to a magazine article soon to be on shelves.

Interesting if true...  I truly dislike seeing this game's developers take it upon themselves to "rewrite" EU as they see fit though.  EU's supposed to at least TRY to work together, and they're simply scrapping past RTS designs it appears.

The TIE Crawler looks NOTHING like the craft that appears in numerous EU writings as well.  This is a design as old as EU itself since it came from the old West End Games books, and the game's developers seem to have felt that they could redesign the vehicle as they saw fit.  Not a good move IMO.

Hope the game is as good as they boast, otherwise we'll see more the same opinion about Star Wars RTS gaming.  It's not been good over the years, so let's hope that doesn't happen.

I believe Obi-Wan's his pack-in, but since I'm not keeping up with the spoilers much I'm not entirely sure on that.

So does she get bumped up on the list now?

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of her.  She's ok though, but just not "wow" enough with all this competition.

And she's also too good for Brad Pitt.  I mean, how tough must you be to please, ya know?

Other Toy Lines / Re: Army of Darkness?
« on: January 8, 2005, 04:22 AM »
I wanted some of the skeletons and such for customizing...

I've heard of issues with them being fragile though, and breaking like a McFarlane "toy" tends to, after just a few movements of a joint.

Still wanting to get the dead bits and pieces for customs though.

Beru and Owen charred, here I come!

As a matter of fact he PM'd me about something I was selling, showing interest, and never got back to me...  I hate when people do **** like that.

Sorry Jesse

For what Dave?   ???  You didn't do something did you?

Just concurring with the above...  If you listen to that Bowl game's half-time show and still think AS is a "good singer", your opinion is 100% invalid.

I have flatulents that carried a tune better.

How can you have head variants on Capt. Panaka? That's like saying make a Darth Maul with head variants  :P

Generic Naboo Officers dude! :)  There's more than Panaka throughout the flick, he's just the one that's gonna get us the generic white guy to go with him, and get offed in the hallways of Theed Palace.
