Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Return Kilbourne to Daily Show
« on: November 2, 2004, 03:51 AM »
Being that it's fake news, it's inevitable that the show's going to dump on anyone in the public eye, liberal or conservative, so while I can clearly see Stewart's leanings towards liberal the show itself clearly makes fun of everyone...

I watch it every night, and they really don't pick sides IMO...  Of course Bush is going to take a little more flak at the moment, just as Kerry would if he were president.  The show has always been that way in my view.

As far as Stewart Vs. Kilbourne, I think it's a matter of opinion, but the show's never had the success it has now under Kilbourne so I'm hesitant to say Stewart isn't legitimately a better host.  Kilbourne was good though, so that's a tough call at best.

The ratings for the show are at all-time highs though I guess, it's winning awards left and right, it's considered one of the better shows on TV right now I guess...  I can't really complain.  I like it as it is...  I was sort of fearful with the last loss of reporters like Steve Correll, but the new people are filling in great or even better... 

It's one of the few shows I watch every night I'm home, so I'm pretty happy as it is, and hope Stewart's on the show for the long-haul.  To me it's a situation of not messing with perfection...  Only tweak I'd make is to have Lewis Black's reports on a little more frequently since he's one of my top 3 comics, but I could see where too much "Back In Black" could clog the show up some.  Only so much time...

Overall though, I love The Daily Show just fine as it is myself.

Hmmm...  A douche or a turd sandwich. 

Decisions, decisions...   :)

I'm a bit more critical than you Dim, but even with my criticism I'm still pleased as punch with the figure.  It's great to me.

The VOTC are, for the most part, everything the line should be, and should've been from the start.  Great stuff, and figure bliss for me!

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Silver Vader Part 2!

Not I, though I'm gonna need a minty mint one to also keep my collection going.

As much as I wish they'd STOP with these figures, I have to say a complete mint carded set is sorta neat to have.  Like having a loose FreezeFrame or Force File set, or for a vintage nod a loose set of coins.

They're just something different...  One of the few things I hang to carded.

That picture at Scum would just confuse the majority who don't even know who CC is or where he came from.

Long-live Cannon Ball Run!

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Breaking the bank, what's the price?

*cough*playmates*cough*

Seriously though...  I think that's just speculation on the scale changes and such, as a reason for a major hike in price, but...  it happens, as with the PM Trek line(s).  Anything's possible.

Can't say I'm wanting to do a trade right now.  Too expensive...  I'm biding my time on all these.

People felt the same way when 3-Rivers Stadium was blown up to make way for PNC park and Heinz Field.

I mean, tons of championship years played there.  Time marches on though, and in the end it's for the best.  I long for the day the Pens get a new arena here because it A) Solidifies the team, and B) it means something NEW to our city that time forgot.

I love "The Igloo" though...  I know it like the back of my hand.  A new place added to the skyline would be nice though, just because it'd be good for the city.

And if they pull off anything as nice as PNC park, I'd be ecstatic.  It's a great park for a horrid team.  :)

around here it's slim pickings. 

Few planes remain at all.  The odd P-40 here and there, and that's it for planes.  Winter Shermans are in abundance, and the grey Tiger's out and about.

Beyond that, I really see nothing of interest.  I'd looked for a winter Tiger...  I've even heard people find them on sale already which I'd kill for one for cheap (I have a grey plastic original version, but would love a steel winter white one). 

The FW I'd buy if I found it, especially if it was cheap, but I haven't seen one up here.

With shipping, big items like those can be costly to get from out of state...  if you guys find the Winter Tiger or FW on sale, let me know.  I should talk to Justin at some point soon...  If I can get to FFURG chat some time anyway.

Are you finding them full price or cheaper generally?

Honestly, if I'd ever even SEEN a FW I'd be able to help you Bob, but that plane NEVER saw the light of day in Pittsburgh.  At least not so far anyway.

Hell, I just got a D-Day Spitfire from SMB because they put them on sale ($35 guys, that's a damn good price).  Another plane I was die-hard wanting (even as a non-plane guy) and another one that didn't show up here.

I'd say it's likely the screws are all the same size, so if there's others on the plane you may do well to unscrew one and get a couple copies of it.

Contacting 21st MIGHT yield good luck too.  They're surprisingly good with the public.  Could try anyway.

If I based it on my local Toy Show (bi-annual, and soon to be tri-annual), I'd say Star Wars surprisingly.  Every table has SOMETHING SW on it every show.  I'm always astonished by that.

Overall though, I dunno...  I follow toys, but not closely enough to monitor who's buying what.  I'll be damned if I can find a new LOTR figure out here though for my brother.  I haven't seen new stuff for months and months.  He's WAY behind and X-Mas is coming.   >:(

Jeff just helped me with some VOTC figures (Stormie, Fett, and Yoda), and they arrived well packed, quickly, and minty fresh.

Can't ask for more...  Thanks Jeff.

Other Collectibles / Re: WOTC SW Miniatures (RPG/CMG/Clix)
« on: October 28, 2004, 08:36 PM »
I have played it, but I personally like the West End Games version better and rather use the new minis in the old game. 

Bob (Bobafett14) is playing it though, or tries to when we have a meeting, so that's one...  If "Blue Harvester" is who I think he is, he too is playing it, or at least as much as Bob is.

It's a good enough game.  You guys should try playing some time, but I like combat games between "armies" more.  IE: Squads of troops, larger forces on a table, little more "military" feeling than WOTC's game.  WEG's version was tailor made for combat with troops.  "Heroes" were a secondary aspect to the game that was possible but not as important.

Generally the hero was a squad sergeant or something.  :)  Some guys snuck in Han leading a group of commandoes, or Luke or someone as a "goal" to be rescued or some crap.

I haven't even bought a set myself.  I bought commons from some local guys just to army build.  That's the extent of my minis buying.  Can't find them for a price I'm pleased with paying though.

I had a night that I looked much the same...  Little longer perhaps, but the Bannister suffered the same fate.

*sigh*
