Hershey, Wilkes-Barre, and Philly but not the Western end for Pittsburgh?

Eddie van Halen can suck an egg.  Or perhaps 2 of them nestled comfortably between...  Ah, nevermind, not worth the effort.  Eddie Van Halen's still a DB though, and as much a coke-head as Dave ever was.  Dave at least had a sense of humor.

Conventions / Pittsburgh Comic Con
« on: March 23, 2004, 11:45 PM »
Coming April 30th, May 1st, and May 2nd is the 11th Annual Pittsburgh Comic Con.

Check here:

http://www.pittsburghcomicon.com/

Anyone attending from the boards here?  Of course I'll be there since it's about 40 minutes from my house at most, but will likely only attend the Saturday show because of my time constraints on the weekends.

I'm sure most of the Pittsburgh guys are gonna be there like BobaFett14 from Scum forums and some of the Eastern half guys (Bill Cable I think is coming out for it).

The show this year coincides with the same weekend of the Pittsburgh Toy Show as well.  Mousedroid let us know at Rebelscum that this wasn't intentional but that it's worked out that way.  They're in the same building, so you can do a Con and Toy Show the same day.  Makes things convenient.

If you're gonna be in town, you'll have to let me know...  Either to run into each other or even if you're curious about things to do after the show's closed.

The show's at the Pittsburgh Expo-Mart by the way, which is in the Suburb of Monroeville (Not within the Downtown Pitt area) which is really easily accessible.  Very convenient for everyone to get to, and only a 15 or 20 minute jaunt (traffic permitting) down into the heart of the city too.

These showed up at a TRU near me this fine day for $4.99 hanging on pegs with every other figure I guess.  They're on their way.  Yay!  

*sigh*  These things are boring...  Oh well.  A complete set of silver figures, I think, will be sort of neat.

GH's report said it seemed like a lot...  

Still, I've yet to see Yavin wave here and I know they've hit this area but got picked up fast.  I figured that wave would fly off pegs, but yeesh...  This even surprised me.

Why is it that "GAME...  BLOUSES" Came to my mind immediately after this picture too?

There's a special paper for inkjet actually, and a "sealant" you buy that you should spray on with an airbrush, but you can thin it and brush it on too.  Looks real top-notch actually.

Bare Metal Foil should sell it if I recall.

Scott,

You know the water-transfer decal paper you get with like a model car or whatever?

They make that paper and a solution that you can spray on it to waterproof the final decals.  It's MUCH better than stickers.  Very cool stuff...  It'll look like a Hasbro piece when you're done.

Other Collectibles / Re: Star Wars Miniatures
« on: March 17, 2004, 11:32 PM »
I'm waiting to see what my SW Minis Battles say about scale...  If they match up well enough to the WEG miniatures, then I'd pick them up...  If they're out of whack, I'm passing unless I see some I like.  

So far, they look nicely sculpted and all but this is an instance where the vintage are more special to me, and these are just good filler for minis battles if they fit in the right scale and all.

I'm hearing one version of every character, so every soldier is in that one pose.  I love the Scout, but the stormie and Fleet Trooper are "eh".  

I'll take my dozen Fleet Troopers from WEG over that one any day.   :-\

Damn you kids and your love of things that don't work right.   :P

JD Sports Forum! / Re: NHL '03-'04

That happened to the Pens all the time like early 1990's...  93 especially, they'd show a graphic, then boom it backfired on the Pens and they'd screw up whatever record they were going for.

I remember Lange and Steigerwald at the time actually knocking on wood and things so it wouldn't happen but it always did.  They'd even laugh at how often it occurred a few times.

Pens have been kicking ass of late...  

Why'd they wait?  WTF?   >:(

Whooped up on the caps tonight, which isn't saying a lot since they're being predicted already as the worst team next season...  Finally someone to pound on!  :)  Oh wait, we always pounded on them before?  

I shouldn't speak too soonn actually, we have a few games with them left this year...  It's just nice actually to win some for a while.  I think we're 4-1 in our last 5...  That, for the dead last team in the league (or they were last I checked) isn't too shabby.   :o

Hey Jim,

My mom's my best friend in the world, and I am so sorry for your loss.  I can't imagine what you're going through, just that I know we all support you in any way we possibly can bud.

Take care, and we're here for you.

JJ

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Not to start a Scalper Topic, but.....
« on: March 16, 2004, 02:24 AM »
I'd like to say first I appreciate you guys chiming in...  Especially chiming in, in a very civil manner.

At Rebelscum, ultimately, I think the vast majority agreed with the focal point of the post and points I made...  

Not to b!tch about scalpers, but rather to point out that scalpers "in our midst" who admit to their actions (but still yet somehow attempt to deny the phrase scalper applying to them) aren't wanted...  That we, as a community, have a right to show some negative appreciation for these douchebags.

Are they there?  Sure are...  Do we have to like them?  No we don't...  Do we have to accept them in our communites?  HELL NO!  I wish people were just more vocal to the young lady I had a disagreement with about her activities selling figures she bought at the store that week to hock on Ebay.  Oh well, complacency will be what kills the line anyway, so I guess it's just shocking to see it now.

As for the card thing...

I'm happy to have seen you post Dave.  Because I know you know what you're talking about from the artist perspective on things, and I thought perhaps those responses would register with her.

She disliked me from the start...  She jumped on CorranHorn at least a couple times because she felt some heat from him though he was civil from start to finish.  Gee, awfully defensive huh?  Oh well.

MisterPL, I loosely quoted your opinion on the legality of selling customs...  I wanted to show that someone with experience here has some pretty valid words to say.  

Speedermike, I'd have loved for you to step in with the Insider story, but I want you guys to know something.

I wouldn't fault ANY of you for not getting involved.  I was happy to just see Jediraven (though the guy's harsh and blunter than I ever am!), CorranHorn, and Dave hop in there.  

I don't think any of you wanted involved in the pages of debate...  I was just saying to Jason in FFURG Chat about how I only debate like that because I have the time.  Love to sneak it in while watching TV, talking on the phone, and even talking to Jason in chat.   :P  I got skillz!  hah

Anyway...

I thank everyone for the support.  THere were like 2, maybe 3 guys at Scum who didn't strike me as posting like they even got 50% of the point I was trying to make...  While 100% get it here, I guess I shouldn't expect 100% at Scum...  Especially considering one of the guys was brand-spankin'-new to Scum and had the simply impressive business lesson to deal out of "Hey JesseJames, it's JUST GOOD BUSINESS".

Absolutely brilliant.  Yes, scalping Star Wars figures is the epitome of a top-notch economic, financial, and entrepreneurial mastermind.  F all these years of school, I learned everything I needed to know about business from "Tick Tock" in the scalper thread at Rebelscum.  :)

I wonder if he prints diplomas for these lessons?  

"Buy low!  Sell High!"

Wow, that guy has to run a fortune 500 with those kinds of words of wisdom.  :)

Again though, thanks for not going "Ugh, just another scalper's suck" thread guys.  I liked to see everyone who came in and said something here, or if you voiced a brief opinion at Scum.  

It's appreciated that I wasn't talking to myself on that one like I thought I might've been for a moment.
