Could it be his disturbingly odd nose? 

Ya know, guys who never got broken noses in school were never well liked by the ladies, yet Owen Wilson becomes a pseudo famous actor.  Incredible.

I've pushed mine back in place for fear of it setting outta whack.  Maybe it was all for not.

Investing my friend...  You forget my whole misery at school!

A million could easily be lived off of comfortably.  :)  Even with the addiction.  I'm sure of it.  I could even get something accmplished for once!   :-\

Toy Reviews / Review: Anakin & Padme Wedding Ceremony!
« on: September 2, 2004, 12:40 AM »

An oldie but goodie...  This is one that's been in the archives and heading up now.

I bring you Anakin & Padme (Secret Ceremony), in all their glory.  Very fun figures to review, if not a bit awkward that each of them has major flaws, major positives, and some minor flaws here and there too.  Click HERE for the full review!

In the end I liked Anakin enough to give him a thumbs up, but Padme really disappoints me.  Padme figures should, without a doubt, be flawless considering that so few of them have any level of articulation that's logical or even feasible because of the dresses.  Wedding Padme's a statue, and a nicely sculpted one, but read on for her flaws.

Anakin on the other hand turned out to be the best Anakin in the line from E2.  Ironic that he's been the last as well, but it's unfortunate that Hasbro cut corners on this figure they didn't need to.  Some nice tweaks in the right direction and this Anakin would rival the VOTC Han Solo in poseability, and he'd be awesome.

Again, read the review and share your own opinion here, whether you agree with me or not.  :)

They restocked here sometime this week...  There's a TON of the set now, so if someone winds up needing one get ahold of me.  I'm able to pick one up for someone SURE they want one.

Seems like demand's pretty satiated at this point though?   :-\

Nice point about THEM killing the Screen Scenes Jared, and not us, but unfortunately we'll hear the same old rhetoric down the road where, "Well these were poor sellers at retail, so since they can't sell we're scrapping the idea...  Blah blah blah."

They are disappointing.  Some of the few action figure sets I've actually never picked up.  Holding off to at the least get something for free when I buy them, or perhaps a sale. :(

TRU's supposedly opening itself to the notion of price dropping in a timely fashion to better compete with big-box retailers, so we shall see.

The Eeth Sloth, to me, is the worst.  I mean...  Good lord.

Vipers were disappointing to me.  Nothing could replace the troops aside from Crimson Guards.  I thought Vipers were kind of the beginning of the end to me.

I'd be content with a million, only because I'm sure I'd be more than capable of living happily off that the rest of my days.  Billion be nice too though.


Then, what to buy...  I'd quit him-hawing around about buying the cheap pop-tarts instead of the Kellogs brand ones, I know that much.

Probably missed 'em because everyone and his brother bought EVERY set they saw at retail.

I got one, and even as a  non-Joe collector I had to have it and wish I had more.  It's one of them sets that having 5 (for 30 troops) would've easily been justified.

Their packs and rifles blow, but I'd have just cast them some AK-47's and an RPG or something, and had a dandy little terrorist group.

If BBI and 21st aren't going to release "enemies" en masse then they'd have fought Cobra on a daily basis on their shelf in my room. :)

Dale to the freakin' rescue on that one!

Indeed Carrie, congratulations...  Come time we'd at least like to see pics of the wedding, if no invite for the entire site.   :P

Country Music is so damn depressing.  I'm amazed there isn't a high suicide rate among its listeners.  There's always lyrics about losing your wife, your car...  Death...  Violence... 

Gimme Faith Hill singing about something sunny while wearing something skimpy.  That's Country Music goodness.

Can always hack the hands off and put a set on from any 21st or BBI Elite Force figure though.

Something to consider.  Dagobah wave's hit en masse here...  Don't count that wave out as being pegwarmers yet.  I'd dare say a couple from it already are earning that status in my area (R2 namely).

BTW I haven't found the arms yet, but I'm still looking so dn't worry. :)  My 21st extra stuff's boxed up though, so if they're anywhere they're in there.

Toy Reviews / Re: 12" Boba Fett - VOTC

That's a bummer.  A lot of photos I've seen of him have the rifle by the stock, so I guess that explains why they're that way.  :(

POTF2 seemed to hold it well as I recall...  Weird.

Bossk is my focus actually, so I too have a Bossk, and he's one of the RARE occassions Hasbro nailed a 12" figure pretty good.

He's pretty nifty. :)

The VOTC Fett's a pretty nticeably different figure than the POTF2 after looking at images.  Much better proportions...  Dunno on the poseability though.  That POTF2 Fett had the new body they were using at the time that had good poseability to it as I recall.

I only fail when I ask you why IE's not wrking.  :)  And that's not THAT often.  Like twice a year tops, and usually my own fault.

No...  Van Halen tune actually...  Dunno the song you mentioned actually.  I'm not much of a music person. 

I played Tuba for like 2 years when I was in Jr. High.   ::)
