God forbid they read the, "Please shower before you go to the show" posts pertaining to C3 then.  Wouldn't want anyone getting a wrong impression.   ;D

Well, I do Bob, but I've got sets so I'm keeping that junk together.

I'll talk to you Saturday most likely...  Well, god willing I get this paper to where I'm content...  I'll likely just call you during the show this time so I'm not searching you out like last time, haha.

***Raises his hand for help***

Like I'd ever get to F'n SDCC.   ::)

Having gotten Palps though, and maybe Yoda here, I'm kinda getting into these Holo figures some.  Don't wanna quit now.

Other Toy Lines / Re: Dusty Trail Toys new "Wild West" Line

I don't have the mail any longer, but it was very nice, but not particularly informative either Paul.

Hard to say where this line stands.  They were pushing it at Toy Fair I know, and didn't have a buyer at that point.  it could be just in production, or still shopping it around.  Hard to say right now but I too am a little dejected to not hear more.

I'm sorta amped about the Terminator and Planet of the Apes lines though, those are cool.  Wish more military stuff was rolling around, but so far the Marines have been the highlight of '05.  :(

Hey Ook,

I've passed that along so we'll see.  It's a bit of work I think, and we're all bogged down at the moment, but the suggestion's in the proper ears now, just so ya know we're not ignoring you.  :)

Site Feedback, Suggestions, and Help / Re: Photo Novel section.

I'm concurring with Matt on the notion of making a mini-section within the Customs area rather than whole separate forum.  I've never liked that about hte Diorama section at Scum, it just feels like it separates two ends of the hobby that should go together.

"Hey, you got customs in my photonovel!"  "Hey, you got photonovel in my customs!"...  :)  They just go together.

But a separate section with customizing is a dandy idea.

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Busted VOTC Leia - bummer

I'm not sure that a screw in the leg would be a bad idea, there looks to be SOME material left, but not having one in the same state as yours it's tough to judge from a picture.

Worse comes to worse you could try that at least...   :-\

The good thing is she went for so cheap most places that getting a replacement isnt' a huge deal I guess.  Just a pain at this point I'm sure.

The best part of the story I've heard so far is that a kid is playing iwth a VOTC Leia.  I recall many people telling me VOTC wasn't for kids at all, and were meant to just sit in the packaging...  I can see some point that kids maybe weren't the target, but they're damn fun figures nonetheless. :)

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: How big is your army?
« on: April 8, 2005, 05:05 AM »
Well I managed (through my gf being at WM tonight) to get 2 more Clones and a Wookie Warrior.  The army gains a little ground I guess.  Not much though.

I'm more concerned with C3 right now, than army building.  I do want those higher # figures though.  Damn!

Revenge of the Sith / RotS Figure Sales!

I'm as amazed at the title I wrote as you possibly are at reading it.

I went to K-Mart tonight to score on the "2 for $11" deal they have.  Not much of a deal considering everyone else has figs for $4.99 this week or something, but I went anyway and I was shocked.

The only 2 figs I wanted were the 2 royal guards they had (red) on the pegs.  They had maybe 8 to 10 basic figures beyond that laying around, but probably 8 to 10 actual pegs for basic figures.  This place was packed on 4/2 also, from what I understand, and now nothing.

I'm amazed that, even at the mark-up, K-mart is still selling figures relentlessly.  That has to bode well for the popularity of the line overall, and I wonder if this is opening Hasbro's eyes that quality sculpts, articulation, and accessories are what sell this line in volume.  Perhaps this is a great omen for things to come!  I'm hoping so anyway.

I was cleaning up K-Mart tonight on a brief jaunt there looking for army builders.

Place was a mess, but I have to say they had maybe 8 - 10 figures TOTAL on pegs.  When a toy line's figures are selling, even at a $2+ mark-up (though they are on sale this week), you have to think the line's doing well.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Gas Prices

We're still at $2.19 or so...  I'm praying it goes down before the 20th...  That something is done.

I pray they develope a simple add-on hybrid kit for cars. :)  I can dream, can't I?  I'd buy it in a heartbeat at this point though.

Don't listen to the Mozilla whore.  He'll lead you down paths of great dread and despair. :)

BTW I don't have to hit ctrl, just printscreen.  I dunno why.  I have a program to pull multiple shots from video games too for reference galleries that I never work on for FFURG.   :P

EDIT:  BTW I'm glad I wasn't the only one who laughed when I saw Dustin's quote about "if you have a problem with being banned here, PM me"....  I truly let a chuckle, partly in disbelief at what I had read, out.  I'm sure it was an honest mistake, but it made me laugh nonetheless.

I gotta get on the ball.  Class is done this week so I'm going out tonight maybe.  Find some figs!

Celebration III: Indianapolis / Re: C3 - Where are you staying?
« on: April 6, 2005, 07:36 PM »
I have your Cell # in my phone Bob, so if you're gonna have it on I'll call you.  Mike was supposed to give me a hand putting the FFURG Table up real quick (just the tables), but if you're around you can coordinate the effort.  Act as foreman or whatever. :)

I'm doing that in the evening.  I'm leaving Pittsburgh around 8 I hope...  Probably just heading from my house down 66 to 70 and on our way then.

Lemme know if your plans are at all similar.

I've got a whole collection of Lego SW you can have for what I paid for it Bob, if you wanted. :P

Catch on or not, I don't have room for all these side-things I've bought over the years like MM's, Legos, etc.  Just too much stuff for too little room.
