Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What kind of car would you buy if.....
« on: October 27, 2004, 11:54 PM »
Sticking with the Chrysler Sebring Conv... 

Being a car you have to drive all the time, and all that jazz, that's why I went with it in the first place.  Comfy, practical, reliable...  Lot of the choices would be less than practical come crunch time and your car needs any level of work...  Especially the Euro fans.

While Smileyfaceguy is always a welcomed man, I disagree on jeeps...  2 of my friends have them.  They're some of the WORST rides I've ever been in, as far as comfort goes.  Bumpy, rigid suspensions don't make for comfort, but they're highly reliable vehicles that really perform above and beyond many 4x4's (even when stock) in bad weather.  Front wheel drive cars perform for what I need though, since I don't do off-roading, so that's my aim there.

Nick's choice of the new Mustang was borderline a choice for me...  Since no release yet, and nothing to really compare it to, I was hesitant.  I like its looks though.  It's a really incredible car though, from looks and its supposed features.  Dunno about traveling on bad roads in it, especially if it's RWD, though I don't know if it's RWD or not.  I'd just assume it is.

Yes and no...  Yes because it's there, but no because I think the feature it's accomodating is quite cool.  I'd actually kind of dig more sabres with that...  Maybe not so prominent/large, but it's a neat enough sabre feature.

Implies a removable blade too...  I loved those, even though some were breaking their figures because of it.  I haven't broken one yet, so it's a feature I highly enjoy.

I was wanting some Skeletons for customizing, but...  That's a tad pricey.  Hmmm

Nothing on tap...  I have been hoping for a Warriors 4-pack that just redecoes Teebo, gives him 4 different colored plain (Wicket) hoods, and includes generic weapons like a bow/arrow, spear, axe, etc... 

That'd be an ultimate army builder set to me.

A new Wicket wouldn't hurt though, given the outrageous size of the current one when compared to "proper" scaled figures like new Leia figures.

I'd like the last of the Vinty's rounded out as well...

And this news goes further in that BBI's "SW" cobbled together figures are a push of a futuristic military toy line (confirmed via  Dunno what the final product would look like, but it could be a neat complement to people's Cantina dioramas, or Mos Eisly/Espa streets or something.

Good filler figures.

And the other news is 21st's got a possible 1:18 medeival line coming (COOOL), and possible lines for films like Platoon, Bridge Too Far, and an upcoming film they definitely have likeness rights to called "Sahara".

Sculpts of Charlie Sheen, Tom Berenger, and the dude that played Green Goblin (Name escapes me) were seen as well, so it's a certainty they have the rights to Platoon...  Bridge too Far just had Airborne figures strewn about as a display.

Nonetheless, customizers rejoice at the notion of making a scarred Tom Berenger Imperial Officer or Rebel Fleet Trooper (Sergeant!). 

I'm giddy folks!  This is good stuff on ALL levels here.

I can't...  Even if you are.  :)

hehe  j/k of course.

I dunno...  I've debated buying the Cantina set too actually...  Haven't seen it to be thrust into the decision though...  With the crawler I'm thinking it may be there a while for me to think about.

Updating again because of some help locally this past week (Sorry Jeff for not updating this sooner on the Madines!  Hopefully I can find any custom fodder of them on my own then at a store...  Some areas supposedly have him in massive quantities?)

I want the DS Droid bad, but I just have a hell of a time justifying that price for the figure.  :(

The crawler itself is to-scale with minis just abouts, so it'd be set-dressing for a table-top game, but I just don't wanna blow $40 on a figure since it's really all I want...  Oh the dilemma's.

You can tell it's not Scott.  Not enough ICMG votes.  :)

Yeah, that is a key...  Having friends with an oz. of life left in them...  My buddy Dan is 27, but still has the mentality of a 21 year old guy, so he's all about going to clubs/bars...  At least a couple nights a week.  He and his girlfriend both have their costumes for this weekend, and my other buddy Eric lives for Halloween.

He's in prosthetics as his profession, so he goes all out every year.  Last year his costume was a Satan that had platform prosthetic legs, an unfolding set of wings on tracks/pullies that were hidden, goat-skin leggings/hoofs, a form-fitting prosthetic body-suit...  All hand-made.

This year it's an elaborate Jack Sparrow and his girlfriend's going as that woman from the PotC movie.

Myself.  A shark who'd had 1 too many...

danced an idiot jig

I knew those moves had a name to them...

A new dance craze we've not seen since the macarena, or the moonwalk.  The idiot jig.

I caught a link that Josh posted at Scum...  Great stuff, I mean really good watching.  :) 

I don't know her, I don't care about her...  I liked watching her fail on a massive level though.

The follow-up of her blaming her band is funny too.  Yup...  All their fault.   :'(   ;D

I found that Halloween became less than important for most of my teen years, but when I turned 21 I was opened up to the world of Halloween weekend at clubs in the city.

Most give away prizes and there's great costume contests...  It opens up.  It's probably the better night at clubs you'll have all year if you ask me.  Last year was tops really...  Great night out with friends, drinking and having a blast...  Even made it into the finals for the contest that year.

When you're younger though, Halloween goes from being dressing up and going door-to-door to doing nothing really.  My family's always decorated extensively, done that kinda stuff, but you just don't do a lot unless there's a party being thrown by someone at school or something.
