Could've acted as a good draw to get people into the Library though when you think about it.

"See how dumb you could be?  Come inside and make sure this never happens to you"

Just be sure not to disclose her payment or you'll have every moron in the world thinking they can be that way too and make good money.

Leslie Boob ...  I mean Bibb... 
Never heard of her, but I see she's into sheer things.

BTW, where's Pee Wee Herman right now? 

I see she's wearing the giant Underpants from the playhouse.

jjks sums things up well, but yeah...  There's a lotta humor to that.

Reminds me of the woman I saw on Wife-swap last night...  Good God...  Get over yourself and admit you're an idiot already, ya know?

You guys cannot believe the WIP's I've got around here...  A SA Maul sits in pieces in a bag as we speak that I started back probably in 2001 maybe?  I've got sheets of plastic laying around...  I need more actually since what I have is too thick to work with easily.

Lots of stuff, no time, and no $ to buy a lot of the materials I want/need to work with.  Can't recall the last time I actually did casting even.   ::)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Episode III line....April 2nd, 2005
« on: October 7, 2004, 06:11 PM »
Seems to corroborate with the news we posted earlier on the return of C1 and C2 style releases with "kid friendly" figures and "collector friendly" figures.

I hope Hasbro doesn't snub the collectors though, and not dish them any main characters.  For every action-feature laden, pre-posed main character, he should have a super articulated, neutrally sculpted, non-action feature laden version as well.

It'll be interesting to see if C2 seemingly outsells C1...  Which would debunk a lot of Hasbro's insistance that the action features are popular.

Damn, I can't even find the VOTC at Amazon...  I hate these sites that have terrible search features.   >:(

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Target Sale... 10/3-10/9
« on: October 7, 2004, 06:02 PM »
I went to a Target late last night...  Nothing.  :(

OTC Pegwarmers galore, like the R2-D2 repack, some Dagobah wave, XW Luke, etc., etc...  The VOTC they had was merely a couple ANH figures.  3 tops... 

Nothing...  I'm dejected because I'm in big need of some stuff but not finding things...  3 VOTC elude me still, and the OTC has some figs I need too (Endor wave, especially Madine, Gam Guard, Tusken...), so I'm hoping these will just ship some more in the near future.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Holiday 2004 Jawas at EE
« on: October 7, 2004, 06:00 PM »
A friend of mine named Bill from the Pitt collecting group said he'd sell me his extra 3PO/R2, so I jumped on the Yoda when it resurfaced at SSW.com...  Then I went in on an order with Bill and another chap from the area, so I've started a complete carded set of these figures.  I almost wanna open them and display them at X-Mas time on the table or something.  I'll debate that when I have a full carded set to observe. 

They're nice for what they are, but for what it took to tool moldings, distribute these, etc...  I'd rather have seen a SA army builder put into the basic line or something. 

In business (and life) the term Opportunity Cost comes up a lot, and every time I see any of these side lines, especially when they take new efforts to make them, I always wonder what the alternative foregone was to make these.

I'd skipped the Holiday figs, but since Bill's offered me his extra R2/3PO (which I never saw) I'm on them now.  I figure I can't argue with that.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Silver Vader Part 2!
« on: October 7, 2004, 05:57 PM »
I have actually gotten a complete set of the silver figures, and just like I predicted, they look really nice together...  I'm not a carded guy, but these in a set are a neat centerpiece to an otherwise loose collection IMO.

I'd like them to do a 3PO, and then can the line...  The Sandtrooper and 2nd Vader were wastes IMO.  The Sandie could've been a basic Stormie I think, and would've made more sense...  not sure what the thinking was on using the Sandtrooper.

I'd almost take an Emperor...  A 3PO should've been in place of the 2nd Vader though.  I almost think they're doing this other Vader as an "apology" for the first Vader, but to me this is one of those series that you shouldn't produce to appease people...  I can see producing ENOUGH of a figure to make people happy, but not producing NEW figures to apologize for shorting a previous one.

3PO, Chewie, and R2 are the 3 I need for a single complete set...

Still needing doubles of Chewie, Fett, Stormie though.  :(

I'm glad R2 and 3PO are 2 of the last ones I need since they're the least impressive of the series IMO.  Chewie though is killing me.  Possibly the overall BEST figure and I don't have one yet.  :(  I'm a dejected collector at this point...

The Stormie and Fett not showing up for my doubles (and extras of the Stormie) is also pretty dejecting.  My efforts are yielding NOTHING right now.  Stores are dryer than a popcorn fart in Pittsburgh.

Indeed Jeff...

I like reading everyone's lists just because I see things I hadn't even considered on them.  Keep them coming guys, because you've got lots of great ideas there.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: 2005 Cantina Wave
« on: October 7, 2004, 05:50 PM »
Nice news Scott...  They are indeed a nice set of figures.  I mean, 3 Cantina aliens at one time?  That's a dream come true that hasn't been seen since the POTF2 cinema scenes, and these figures are substnatially superior to the old 3-pack figures.

Myo's currently ranking as my favorite I think.  That's just really good detailing going on.  Can't wait to have these 3 in the bar...  I'm gonna have to take some of my filler figures out.  I have XD pilots in there, the Toht, the Gestapo guy from Raiders is in there, a space man figure, and damn near a dozen Jawas drinking away.  :)  These 3 are welcomed by me for sure.  Good customizing sources too, especially if you're into fan-fic.

Can't wait to make an Abyssian Rebel Pilot or soldier.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Howard Stern coming to Sirius!
« on: October 6, 2004, 11:23 PM »
Man, we just got STern back...   :-\  I wanna get the system he's on, because he's all I listen to on the ride to school, plus his show would be uninterrupted to an extent I'd think...  At least less anyway.  And unrated, which is incredible because his PPV's were always good.

I can't justify paying for it just for Stern, but I'd like to have it nonetheless, just for Stern.

Man I miss them soft one-piece pajamas...  I like things with easy removability as much now as an adult as I did as a baby.  I need me some feety pajamas, stat.

That good?  :)  Still, I like my techs to take their anabolic Steroid tests regularly.  This guy somehow avoided the pee test.
