Hmmm

Cats...  Cats are always nice and soft.  My cats rock.
Smoking Monkeys (of course)...  See the other thread.
70-77 degrees and 0% humidity days...  OOOOOoooooo
Sitting on a bar's outside deck and having beers with friends...  
Star Trek:TNG Re-runs every night...

A few things I guess...

Ah!  WTF is up with that?  

No I don't want him to quit though...  It's his smoking and other bad primate habits that endear me to him.

On Ebay, smoking monkeys are relatively inexpensive...  And they make the #1 boutique X-Mas gift item.

Link saved, and many thank yous for it.

On a smoking monkey note, please observe some recent auction wins of mine!

A cigarette case...  Very classy!



And a cigarette-incense burner (the cigs are incense I guess?) made of ceramic, and wearing the classic fez design.



I'm ecstatic for both personally...  Excellent additions at low, low, low cost.

Recently I also used a lovely monkey .jpg to illustrate a point I was making about 2 of the more, uhm, "youthful" members at GalacticHunter one evening.

The link for the image was:

http://www.postcardworld.co.uk/cards/subject/animals/swords.jpg

But I'm not sure it's working any longer now.  A funny image of monkeys fighting with sabers while other dapper monkeys looked on.   It did give a strong visual of what I felt the "argument" would look like in real life as well.

Hey Scott, I BELIEVE it is the HS Trailer...

I changed the title of the thread here just so it's a little more clear since I see a lot of you have seen it already, haha.  Well I thought it was a scoop at least. :)

Being a non HS member (I dunno if I need to renew my Fan Club membership now or what?) I didn't even realize others had seen it a while back.

It was maybe helpful to the cheapies like me. :)  Ah well...  haha

Joe Defender / Re: G.I. Joe Toys Thread

Do any of you guys collect, and more importantly do customizing, with Joes?

I was looking for sites that do casts of G.I. Joe parts for customizers.  I saw one from J&R or J&P Customs or something like that...  I have that one bookmarked.  But, there's another site out there that I KNOW exists that I can't find anything out about.

They have a lot more headcasts including sets for Cobra Troopers with removable helmets and stuff.  I recall seeing Wild Weasel's helmet too.  I was wanting to just make a couple customs for myself and my brother and needed this other site's items.

I definately have the one site, just not the other.

Any help guys?

At least it didn't expand the size of the page so you needed to side-scroll to read a whole post.  :)  Had that problem recently!

You shouldn't joke about his mom - he's probably pretty sensitive about the fact he's never had one.

As my Grandmother would've said...  "Crows **** (poo'd) him out on a fence-post and the sun hatched him".

Edited my own post, hehe...  Figured the point would be made clear enough without my foul mouth setting a bad example...

Bad Jesse!  :)

I'm 100% sure GNT doesn't have the power to ban, but he does have the power of asking for one down like a pro.  And that's all it seemingly takes is the whistle-blowing to someone important...

No discussion, no explanation (at times?), and no debate from the opposite side.  If he did a good job and obeyed the rules of the site himself, and were a tad more courteous, I think things would be ok.

Then again if he did all that would he have so many critics?  A real vicious cycle there. :)

Maybe your kick in the nutz will be a silent one?

Why show any respect to forum members, even to tell them WHY they're being kicked off, or give it some reason/legitimacy from someone important?  That'd be a single iota of quality.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Battlefront Clan

I'd tentatively be in...  I don't online game much, but I do now have Cable Internet (have for a year I guess) and MAY be buying this.

If the game can prove to have a decent Single Player Feature I will most definitely own a copy.  I'm not holding my breath there though.  :-\

Call me spanky, but I'm more looking forward to Republic Commando.  THAT's looking good to me.

Or making a friend or two with KM's to help ya Diddly!  Don't give up hope.

I'm going to ATTEMPT to get an extra set or two for people, and I'm sure everyone else who can will.  KM's still a powerhouse here (Well, maybe not a powerhouse, but there's closer KM's to me than WM's or Target stores).

I'll see what I can do for people, as I'm sure others will as well.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: TRU Endor 4 Pack
« on: June 23, 2004, 09:05 PM »
Anyway you slice this set, it's terrible.  Things like this are why there's TONS of the PoC set and Jedi set sitting about at TRU's.  They just do NOT sell and they appeal to a minimum audience.

I liked the kitbashes of the Empire set, and wish they'd continued on with that...  This set would've been awesome with kitbashed figures, softgoods (nice ones) accessories, and a couple good army builders.

It wouldn't have really cost much more to make, and at $20 a pop you know they'd have recouped what little cost would've gone into the set and maybe (just maybe) actually sold these things well with the right items packed in.

As it stands, a sea of these will clog pegs, and they're not even useful at clearance prices anymore.

« on: June 23, 2004, 09:02 PM »
I'd love to see just retooled things with new heads/hands sometimes.  Not even brand new or entirely accurate, but just filler for a Cantina diorama.

As it stands, Jesus, some Indiana Jones guys, XD guys, and EU figures are stand-ins in my cantina. :(

Anyway, I for one am pleased with the 3-pack coming, though it coulda been cooler had they redone some things...

-Evazan's arms coulda used a redo, or at least new poseable hands so they could pack in the realistic version of his blaster that Bo Shek had.  A holster on his hip woulda been nice too then.

-Wuher's cool, even if his hand's gaping...  Maybe he's gonna bitch-slap someone?

-Ktik I'm just happy about period...  That's a weird, obscure character.

A "new" Cantina set's not entirely out of the question I think, but unlikely I suppose.  :(  Still I'd love to see some redone figures at some point...  Hell, I'd even take a set with a VOTC Obi packed in. :)

If this is a "downfall" over here, then give me more gloom and doom.  Couldn't ask for a better forum, better members, and better admin/mods (not to toot my horn).  

Just sour grapes on his part, but at least you got banned for a good cause over there.  :)
