Watto's Junk Yard / Funny Movie Edits...
« on: September 12, 2004, 10:54 PM »
Anyone enjoy good (bad) movie edits that are put onto TV? 

As I watched the A&E Special on Star Wars this evening (very good by the way), I was ******* around watching The Patriot on TNT.  TNT's shown graphic stuff before, like Andersonville (its own film), Gettysburg, etc...  I seem to recall violence in those galore.

The Patriot had HORRIBLE edits in it though.  I mean big cuta-aways with the sound left in tact...  Fight scenes which have the speed increased to a comical Benny Hill level to make the edit "fit".

I can only imagine Gibson's other spirit-rouser Brave Heart which made The Patriot look like a kiddie film in its levels of graphic violence.

Other films I've seen have really awesome made up words snuck into them to replace swearing, which really often makes for a good bellie laugh from me I know.

Anyone love watching horrible TV editing jobs though?  This is really kinda sad, but comical nonetheless.

Steelers 24, Oakland 21, and Jesse +$50.00

:)  Here we go Steelers here we go!

The game was REALLY good and Oakland made a nice run at the end that I missed because I had to go pick up some food for supper.  Fun to be back in Football season.

One was pictured, dunno what came of it or if it's due this year or next...  With 21st stuff you really can't gauge when it's coming. 

They're piss poor about accurate street dates.  What's worse is you never even know if you'll even see one in your area, or if you'll be relegated to going online for it.

As far as HTUSA carrying this stuff, some do and some don't...  Mine doesn't for instance, but I've heard others have extensive selection at good/fair prices.  Even figures.

Hit or miss...  I've not been to my HTUSA in probably 3 months or so, so I can't even say mine DOESN'T carry these still.  They may now.

Don't drink?  That's unamerican!  haha j/k...  You hear that enough I'm sure.  :P  (I mean that in a funny/haha way of course)

Uhm, birthday cake then?  Rest of us will drink in the meantime.

Plus, no rounds for the crowd...  You REALLY don't drink if ya don't know that your friends pick up your tab on your B-Day...  If they're good friends at least Rob.  :)

haha, you guys are nuts. :)

So does anyone think they'll play the OLD SW Minis game with these?  It's more involved, but visually it's like combining Chess (without the simpler rules), with diorama building...

If I get into these, my goal's to have a set of individuals and army build galore with any and all troopers, officers, etc...  Customizing too.

I've only got the two promos I've been given so far though.  :-X

Modern Classifieds / Stuff I Want To Buy (Loose, Carded, Various)
« on: September 10, 2004, 11:47 PM »
I figure I'd throw this up here...

I'm wanting to buy lots of things listed below...

If anyone can, I'd appreciate any help, though items marked with *** are my main priorities at this point.  I listed some ROTS stuff that, while I'm not "paniced" on it, I would buy some extras anyone had maybe nabbed and didn't mind passing on if they wanted to...  was trying to buy "in bulk" with those a little to make shipping worth it.  They've been a royal pain to find around here, but hopefully that'll change. :)

Episode One:

-Battledroids (POTJ Security Droid as well) Any Variation
-Blue Pilot Droid w/mini tank
-AAT(ATT?) Model Kit (The large scale one)
-Destroyer Droids (First or Battledamage)
-Slice Apart Battledroid (from Playset)
-STAP (any version) w/Battledroid
-Droid Fighter 3-pack (with the 1 walking droid)

POTJ:
-Imperial Officer
-R2-Q5 or R4-M9 (or whatever those droids names are)
-Boomer Damage BD (buy in multiples!)
-Mon Calamari Officer/Trooper

Saga Basic:

-McQuarrie Trooper
-Imperial Officers (Blonde or Brown hair)
-Capt. Antilles
-Adm. Ozzel
-Red Battledroids (Target Accessory, Basic, or 3-pack)

Saga Deluxe/Ultra:

-Super Battledroid Builder Set (The Playdoh set) ***
-Gen. Riekean (computer screens only, though I'll take the whole set if people have it for the right price)

Clone Wars Basic:

-Red ARC Trooper *** 
-SA Clone Trooper

-EE SA Clone Army Builders (White, Clone or Battle-Damaged)

Vintage OTC:

-Stormtrooper   ***

Revenge Of The Sith: (Would like to buy multiples to make it worth the shipping)

-#41 Clone Trooper (Super Articulated)
-AT-TE Gunner
-#6 Clone Trooper (Not high priority)
-Turbo Tank Driver
-Preview Wookiee Warrior
-Tarkin
-Medical Droid
-Polis Masaan
-Royal Guards (Blue or Red)

Vintage Weapons:

-Need lots, all originals, so if anyone deals in these, by all means I'd appreciate a note of what you have.  I need the regulars, especially Leia guns and the like, but other random pieces like Ewok weapons and such, as well.  Especially looking for original Jedi and Bespin Luke sabers (blue, green, and yellow), and a brown Yoda snake...  Also looking for POTF Ewok weapons (spears, bows, quivers).

Thanks for the help guys/gals!

No no no, just kicking in on that uber cheap booth...  We're $48,890.00 away from booth-dome...  If we just work at it, we'd have a communal thing there.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: PS2 GHOST RECON!
« on: September 10, 2004, 11:35 PM »
Ghost Recon's cool, but I'd like a classic trilogy version of a Ghost Recon/Rainbow Six, Clancy-esque game before a prequal game.

But moreso I'd like a single-player Call of Duty Star Wars version set in the classic era.  I think the gameplay's faster-paced in line with the Dark Forces series, but the team aspect of it's fun.  It's definitely not as complex as Ghost Recon, but fun.

I've played some good tactical action or FPS games lately...  SOCOM, Conflict Desert Storm I & II, etc...  Ghost Recon's in there for tactical effects.  I imagine a REbel Commando or Infiltrator team using one of those game engines.  SWEEET.

Mission taking an AT-AT over or something...  Super SWEEEEEET.

It came with a modern dude...  It's a modern paintjob though, so I'm assuming the original came with the one Nam guy with the peace symbol necklace?

I never saw the first one I don't believe...  The new one's got a tan/grey camo that I'm not sure if it's legit Army or if it's a NATO scheme or something.

New one's neat, and cast in steel like the Winter Sherman was, so it's pretty unique.

Apparantly the Tiger's shipping to Wal-Mart right now (I've heard both an original grey pattern and winter deco) and they too are cast in steel.

Honestly, if it's not changing costs (IE: we can't get it cheaper as plastic) then I'm all for this die-cast stuff.  Feels much more "tank" to me.  Really neat.

I want a winter Tiger now!

Anyway...

Tonight extended the good fortune.  I got 2 Fountain's for $10 each at TRU, and I got the LAST LAV they had for $16-ish.

Not a bad haul at TRU then tonight...  I have to say that for $10 the fountain's suddenly a prime piece.  If this had been $10 or $15 in the first place I may have bought one ages ago.  Thankfully I never got one because the store has about 10 (well, 8 now), and they aren't flying off the shelves exactly.

It's a nice piece, but not $30 nice like they wanted originally.

$20 was too high too, but $10 sure as hell felt right, especially since the removable helmet German Infantry dude's packed in there too.  :P

I'm pretty happy.  Dunno why I bought two Fountain's, but I think I know a use for the 2nd one. 

I guess other people's TRU's have tons of other stuff though...  I've heard that there's a lotta Patton Cars, even old tanks and stuff, but mine is now cleared out of most all 21st product except fountain's and I think 2 of the weird era tanks (The Walker Bulldog or the other one...  The tanks that didn't really have an era to fit in, ya know?  I think the other was a Chaffee perhaps?).

Yup, but bought it myself...  Dunno how much of a "gift" that is I guess. :)

On another awesomely bright military toys note, I got a clearanced Bradley today from a really kick-ass nice guy at GP's.  I didn't recognize the nic there actually, and I'm always hesitant to do business with people I don't know especially because at GP's they don't monitor the trading/selling whatsoever, and there's been some serious sheister's there as well as people just trying to jack prices up and make a buck.

I mean, a dude offered me a BotB jeep not long ago for like $35 before shipping.  I damn near told him off.  It's a shame GP's doesn' thave a solid collecting code and tight-knit community like we have here.

But I digress...

Anyway this dude got me a Bradley for $25-ish shipped (I believe it was less actually).

How kick ass is that?  SHIPPED, and I'm talking 2-day with confirmation.  I owe him big now...  He went above and beyond.  Even overpacked it really.  haha

Sometimes ya just win out I guess.  I'm gonna see if he customizes and offer headcasts or something as a thank you.  I owe him that much. 

Now if I could get a 2nd Bradley to take apart and actually cast a lot of the pieces.  The hatch covers and stuff rock all get-out.  I'm thinkin' Star Wars custom if I could get a 2nd one that cheap, haha.

PS: The modern tanker, if anyone's curious, sucks bigtime.  Terrible figure, and no bicep articulation like the Royal Marine.  I don't get 21st's modern figures....  They are just atrocious.  This company's weakest offering ever, without a shadow of a doubt.

The seeming herpes outbreak on her mouth there is real attractive.  :)

Seriously though, Kate Winslet's one who never did it for me either.  Could've been Titanic itself that turned me off, and sign me up for Drew Barrymore hatred.  She's a pig, and my friends dragged me to both Charlie's Angels films.  There's $20 I'll never get back.

Spears...  All made up I'm into her actually, but if those images of her aren't doctored, well...  In the immortal words of Phil Hartman playing Fank Sinatra:

"Turn her around and do your business...  I hear ya kid!"

A neat score at the local TRU last night...

Someone bought the BBI Apache Helicopter and returned it because, I am assuming here, they broke the one pack-in pilot.  One of them has his arm glued at the bicep (in a relatively straight pose), so I'm assuming they were twisting the joints and broke it.  I know the wrist joints on both pilot pack-ins were tight.

So anyway, the box is resealed and the contents are just thrown in.  They're rattling all around.  Low and behold the price is $9.90.  A $40, to-scale, amazingly detailed chopper for $10.50 after tax.

One busted pilot's nothing for that price, so I bought it...  I wasn't sure it was complete actually, but I figured even if not then I'd just make a custom downed Apache diorama.  I could sorta finegal that.

Low and behold the chopper's complete and in pristine shape though.  $10.50 got me my Apache with one pilot that has a non-functioning left arm at the elbow.  Yippee!  :)  I'll take that thank ya!
