I was wanting some Skeletons for customizing, but...  That's a tad pricey.  Hmmm

Nothing on tap...  I have been hoping for a Warriors 4-pack that just redecoes Teebo, gives him 4 different colored plain (Wicket) hoods, and includes generic weapons like a bow/arrow, spear, axe, etc... 

That'd be an ultimate army builder set to me.

A new Wicket wouldn't hurt though, given the outrageous size of the current one when compared to "proper" scaled figures like new Leia figures.

I'd like the last of the Vinty's rounded out as well...

And this news goes further in that BBI's "SW" cobbled together figures are a push of a futuristic military toy line (confirmed via Figures.com).  Dunno what the final product would look like, but it could be a neat complement to people's Cantina dioramas, or Mos Eisly/Espa streets or something.

Good filler figures.

And the other news is 21st's got a possible 1:18 medeival line coming (COOOL), and possible lines for films like Platoon, Bridge Too Far, and an upcoming film they definitely have likeness rights to called "Sahara".

Sculpts of Charlie Sheen, Tom Berenger, and the dude that played Green Goblin (Name escapes me) were seen as well, so it's a certainty they have the rights to Platoon...  Bridge too Far just had Airborne figures strewn about as a display.

Nonetheless, customizers rejoice at the notion of making a scarred Tom Berenger Imperial Officer or Rebel Fleet Trooper (Sergeant!). 

I'm giddy folks!  This is good stuff on ALL levels here.

I can't...  Even if you are.  :)

hehe  j/k of course.

I dunno...  I've debated buying the Cantina set too actually...  Haven't seen it to be thrust into the decision though...  With the crawler I'm thinking it may be there a while for me to think about.

Updating again because of some help locally this past week (Sorry Jeff for not updating this sooner on the Madines!  Hopefully I can find any custom fodder of them on my own then at a store...  Some areas supposedly have him in massive quantities?)

I want the DS Droid bad, but I just have a hell of a time justifying that price for the figure.  :(

The crawler itself is to-scale with minis just abouts, so it'd be set-dressing for a table-top game, but I just don't wanna blow $40 on a figure since it's really all I want...  Oh the dilemma's.

You can tell it's not Scott.  Not enough ICMG votes.  :)

« on: October 25, 2004, 04:31 PM »
Yeah, that is a key...  Having friends with an oz. of life left in them...  My buddy Dan is 27, but still has the mentality of a 21 year old guy, so he's all about going to clubs/bars...  At least a couple nights a week.  He and his girlfriend both have their costumes for this weekend, and my other buddy Eric lives for Halloween.

He's in prosthetics as his profession, so he goes all out every year.  Last year his costume was a Satan that had platform prosthetic legs, an unfolding set of wings on tracks/pullies that were hidden, goat-skin leggings/hoofs, a form-fitting prosthetic body-suit...  All hand-made.

This year it's an elaborate Jack Sparrow and his girlfriend's going as that woman from the PotC movie.

Myself.  A shark who'd had 1 too many...

danced an idiot jig

I knew those moves had a name to them...

A new dance craze we've not seen since the macarena, or the moonwalk.  The idiot jig.

I caught a link that Josh posted at Scum...  Great stuff, I mean really good watching.  :) 

I don't know her, I don't care about her...  I liked watching her fail on a massive level though.

The follow-up of her blaming her band is funny too.  Yup...  All their fault.   :'(   ;D

I found that Halloween became less than important for most of my teen years, but when I turned 21 I was opened up to the world of Halloween weekend at clubs in the city.

Most give away prizes and there's great costume contests...  It opens up.  It's probably the better night at clubs you'll have all year if you ask me.  Last year was tops really...  Great night out with friends, drinking and having a blast...  Even made it into the finals for the contest that year.

When you're younger though, Halloween goes from being dressing up and going door-to-door to doing nothing really.  My family's always decorated extensively, done that kinda stuff, but you just don't do a lot unless there's a party being thrown by someone at school or something.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What kind of car would you buy if.....

Chrysler Sebring Convertible.

Economical gas mileage, sporty looks, speed/power without an outrageously costly engine, reliable in every way, dependable in winter conditions/bad roads, and of course a lovely convertible.  Pain in the ass to maintain the tops, but worth it IMO.

Now...  If we still have the leftover cash, I'm gonna nab a Corvette Stingray too...  79'll do.  Or a restored 59 Thunderbird convertible.  That's a classy weekend ride.

I didn't know you'd pulled the Nazi card and gotten banned too Tripper.

That's kinda funny...  There is over-sensitivity there on many issues, by a vast majority of people.  Tack onto that all the liars, all the completely arrogant people, all the "kids" (not all kids are bad, but the "kids" are guys like Gen Windu, yodaboi, etc. who are considered above and beyond annoying), and all the condescending attitudes.

There's a lotta Comic-Book-Guy syndromes over there...  Especially towards new people (old or young) and it transcends sections of that site.  Vintage has them, Modern areas have them, the film sections have them, and Wuhers has them by the truckload.

Also, there's guys there that simply aren't respectable...  The kind that fight just to fight, argue a point when they're wrong (Some even being proven they were arguing the opposite way in other threads), and won't back down at all...  These are people that simply like hearing themselves talk, and making sure everyone else has eyes on them.  Little attention from their parents, so they crave it on internet forums.

Then there's the political BS...  There's still guys there that think making a point politically is what every post should be about, even when against the rules of the site...  It's one of the few rules Scum tries hard to enforce.

I mean, there's names there that really should've been banned LONG ago, even when it was a half-decent forum, but they still are trolling around...  Some of them are people let back in that were rightfully kicked out in the first place even. 

Yet someone makes a Nazi "joke" because of the over-policing on some issues, and that whole site is up in arms on it.  I'll never get that way of running things.  That's what doesn't make sense, and I think it's the reason for the downhill days.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: EP3 Prototype Images!
« on: October 22, 2004, 03:14 AM »
The thing about Super Articulation is...

Do you think you'll not buy a pre-posed, or otherwise specific version?  Suspending disbelief on the action features for the moment, as I can't think of anyone (sane) who actually thought those were the hottest idea in Hasbro's history of not hot ideas.

To me, the SA only enhances the pre-posed figures to me.  Like VOTC Han kicks ass in every way imagineable, but there's the bonus enjoyment I now get out of the POTJ Death Star Escape Han because I have that VOTC Han that is the definitive to me.  DSE just looks kinda cool now, whereas before I really hated that figure and considered it a sheer waste.

I really love these new E3 figure images...  Proof Hasbro's learned something in the last 2 years or so...  Collection 2 figures weren't vaguely close to this level of quality in Saga's run, so I'm really excited at what is awaiting us with ROTS, and then what could be coming beyond that!  I can't friggin' wait. 

Best figures ever are coming our way now and in the future...  That's bright news.  They know how to go into a line's (supposed) ending period, and make you wish it wasn't stopping any time soon.
