Being the photoshop reject I am, anyone else already planning on super imposing Hasselhoff's head on Fright's body, and of course keeping the hair-did?

Just a thought...  A funny, funny, laugh till my sides hurt thinking about it, thought.

This guy's like internet fly ****.  He's everywhere, and the next picture's funnier than the last.

Pittsburgh's a 2-way tie between Baseball and Hockey after Football which will always dominate the Steel City.

That said, News always devotes mroe to Baseball which always garners heat from the real sports press in the city (in the papers and such) because the news channels will pimp the loser pirates like they're the end-all and be-all.

They suck, but have a nice stadium.

The Pens will live on though, and when they rebound (they will, I feel sure), they'll be back in the saddle.

I hope we build the underground arena they've said is a rumor.  THAT would kick ass.

Early sketches of Chewie as a long haired freak are cool to me...  That's the one Mc-figure I'd personally love to have, mostly because I could blend him into damn near any diorama. :)

This one's perplexing to me as well, but you guys have me fearing the customer service over yonder.

I've not dealt with them, but if it's all I've read I'm not looking forward to trying to get this figure.  The last Insider owners did a half-decent job I felt.  Too bad LFL/Hasbro are in charge now, more or less.  Neither's the swiftest at making people happy.

You rock Beth...

Thanks.  You'd make my brother happy.  He's got things rough because he's in grad school to be a Dr. of psychology, and he's married and all...  He doesn't get to the stores much so my mom and me keep up with the line as good as we can for him...  

I get a figure here and there but always turn things to him first.  I got the Witchking which rocked...  Loved that figure, and nw I wish I'd gotten a KotD at the same time but I passed cuz I was short on $ and this is a line I just browse through.

Then Cole's figure broke upon opening...  Blah.

I'll let you know via PM if I can't find one in the next two weeks.  I appreciate the help!

PS: I knwo what you guys mean about the articulation loosening.  It's an area Hasbro does pretty great on and other companies flub sometimes.  Then again Hasbro doesn't do much articulation to begin with. :)

Happy B-Day to everyone I've missed here for a while...  Sorry bout that.   :-\

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Chores... What do you do?
« on: June 2, 2004, 06:48 PM »
Well, here's my list...

-Wash/Wax/Detail car(s)...  My 2, my mother/fathers car, & my father's truck.  Sometimes my girl's truck too, but it's garage kept and she's not going to hang onto it for long before getting something new so usually it's just a wash here and there.

-Oil Changes, help (at least) with brakes, etc...  Routine maintenance.

-Yardwork (just a catch all for my life around here)

-Work out...  I consider this a chore.  I don't get the "pleasure" others do from working out.

General stuff like that...  There's a creek across the road from my place I've been having a bitch of a time with this year keeping it from eroding away at a walking bridge I've got built there...  I guess that is yardwork, but it's turned into a routine chore with the wet weather we've had.  No flooding though so I can't gripe (not that we ever have flooding here...  knock on wood).

Oh yeah, and looking for Star Wars figures, cuz Hasbro and retailers have made that one a chore.  Can't even order cases from what I read about NewForce cancelling orders...  Thanks Hasbro!   ::)

Hmmm I dunno...

Perspective or not, $60's pretty outrageous for something being produced now with no tooling costs.  I'll wait for it to come down in price and, if nothing else, get it later than everyone else.

It's just not that good to me in the first place...  I was going to justify it by using it as a set piece for SW Minis battles games since it'd make a possible objective or something, but beyond that the RA-7 was my only desire from it.

I just can't compare it with the vintage toy...  It'd never replace it to me.  There you're getting something they're not making right now and which has real nostalgia.  But here with the modern crawler it's just a watered down, dirtied up version of the original...

That RA-7 is neat though, I like it.  :)

I'd like to see what Hasbro's MSRP was in ink on this beyond what the actual charge is.  I recall multiple people contradicting me (at the time) that the Shuttle was selling for its legitimate MSRP and that it was as low as Hasbro could get it...  Then we found out that wasn't so much the case.

Diamond's never been exactly cheap with their exclusives, and old SW exclusives sold for higher than their MSRP so I'm wagering it's spiked for the Crawler as well.

I think $50's even too much for this though...  It's not that big a vehicle even.

I'm bummin' right now.

I got a KotD figure at TRU a short while ago for my brother Cole and his freakin' hand broke off.  I got back to the store today and low and behold they are fresh out of KotD and so is every store in the area it appears. :(

I now am hesitant to return the figure for him since I don't know how tough to get he's gonna be.  He was in abundance just last time I was there too!  I wanted one for myself even, but I always get for him first because this is his "thing" he likes to collect.

Anyone know if he's gonna be one of the tougher ones to find over time?  I'd hate for my bro to miss out on this one just because TB made a figure whose hand broke at the slightest touch.

Taking a look over yonder at GH's preview, I noticed a few things...

-Leia...  I'm overall pretty happy, and while the attempt at "sheer" spacey fabric is different I'm not really disappointed with it.  The figur'es what it should be to me...  Simple, effective...  Accurate headsculpt.  A softgoods skirt with bendable knees might've been nice just so she could sit, but she's cool nonetheless.

-Lobot...  Pretty great really.  I rank him in there as being similar to a Senator figure.  No need for flashy articulation, no need for goofy gimmicks...  no need for any pose really.  Just a nice vanilla cyborg.  His implant thing coming out is weird, but I assume it's not intended to.  The accessories rock and Hasbro gets an A for creativity in designing some "just off-screen" doo-dads for him.  Nice figure, and nice apology for POTF2 version.

Now, the figure I actually had a problem with is the one I was hoping I'd love the most...

-Cloud Car Pilot...  Not that he's bad by any means, but what the hell is up with Hasbro insisting on making "leaning" action figures?  That lean doesn't totally ruin him, but it sure as **** detracts from an otherwise PERFECT action figure.

I don't get it...  Why would they do this?  Why'd they do it to Ach Med Beq, Lt. Faytonni, and the Clone Pilot as well?  Is there some odd sculptor at Hasbro who specializes in figures who lean?  Does this sculptor perhaps have a condition where he himself is constantly leaning to one side so when he sculpts figures they lean as well?

I want answers to these questions because I'm tired of leaning figures.  Hasbro's new craptacular trend!

Don't do stuff like this...  :(  Faytonni and Beq would be ultimate Custom Fodder if they didn't lean.  CCP would be a simply amazing figure if he didn't lean.  Other figures in the past were "ruined" by a lean that kept them from being truly great!


There...  Said my peace.  Whoever did that sculpt's a real jag-off for doing that.   >:(  

Really nice accessories though...  Love the belt/holster thing.  The blaster and communicator are cool nods to the vintage figure too, and the helmet's see-through visor rocks as well.  

Just wish that sculpt were NOT leaning.

Bill Shatner's great.  :)  I could listen to his music all the time...  

Leonard Nimoy's is great too.  Much more "musical" than Shatner's actually.
