Watto's Junk Yard / Re: When They Were Funny...
« on: March 25, 2004, 01:35 AM »
Not to perpetuate things, but I didn't want Bill Murray listed on the top comedians list not because I dislike him as an actor, but because that's a comedian's list, not an actors list.

Bill doesn't do standup, and honestly I can't even recall a time after he was on SNL that I'd look at him and say "That's a good comic".  He's funny, and COULD do comedy I suppose since he ad-libs and makes crap up as he goes (or so I've read), but he's not a comic to me.

Dave Chapelle's a comic...  Dave Attel's a comic...  Those guys are comics and deserve on the list of top comics...  Bill Murray's an actor to me.  It's like listing Matthew Perry as a comic...  He's funny on TV (sort of), but he's not a comic, but just an actor.

I just wanted to make sure everyone knew I wasn't meaning to trash Murray because I actually really REALLY like him as an actor and think he's underrated.  He's also pretty ugly and that isn't gonna get him far...  Though Tommy Lee Jones made a career, so anything's possible, so I dunno.

Damned if I wouldn't like 1 or 2 of these extra.  I was lucky to get one for cost at a local collectors meeting.  Otherwise, I have not seen this figure EVER.  Never once in stores.  His wave wasn't abundant.  The Emperor shipped with him, did it not?  He too flew past us with his huge hood.

If it's a boy, Jesse, Cole, and Sean are wonderful names (Me and my brother's names  ;D ).

Just had to get my plug in there...  hehe  Anyone who knows the Jesse/Cole link gets a free handshake if they ever meet me too.

Happy Birthing of a Child to you and your wife...  Or simply Congratulations.  It's much easier to say, and likely won't get me smacked by the one actually doing the birthing thing.

Kids aren't my bag, but more power to you for having a family and being a father Scott because I admire those who do it well.  My brother Sean's had enough kids to last me a lifetime though, and I've had too much of a hand in raising the majority of them.  I'm all kid'd out and at a young age, haha.  :)

I'm holding off buying the Jedi 4-pack to get the Clone, personally.  TRU DOES have some stuff out there though...  Here anyway.  At least we have some Bespin Guards anyway for army building.  Not too much else, though Tatooine Wave's shipping to some TRU's here, and there's some Hoth leftovers here and there.  Cool stuff, sort of...

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

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.
