I currently have 6 opened here.

1's lying dead, in an incredible "gut-holding" pose with his lifeless legs propping his lower body on its side (to accomodate the grenade). 

1's fallen beside him, but is crawling towards his squad-mates, firing away with his E-11 while looking down his body at who attacked them.

1's got his left hand on his holster after undoing his E-11 and he's blasting away with it one-handed with his right hand.

1's kneeling behind the two prone troops, giving them support with his E-11 to help the struggling troop to relative safety.

1's holding the BFG the Sandtroopers had...  The T-21.  He's the team's support gunner, and he's doing his job standing behind my Alarm Clock for cover, and actually firing the rifle with his right hand and cradling it with is left...  Dunno what's up with the big stabilizer on the side of it.  Dumb.

And finally, 1's using the other Sandtrooper rifle, the one Chewie used on the DS.  He's giving some support as the team sharpshooter, also nicely tucked behind the Alarm Clock for cover.  :)

These things are Sooooo cool.  :)

Guy did the same thing to me on a gutted Queen's Starship I was selling to Minis gamers who wanted it as a playing dio...

First guy mailed me about it, and was interested, but never got in touch to my replies so after 3 days I gave it to the next guy.

Never did get a reply, and I wasn't gonna screw over the guy who was willing to buy it  for the guy who wasn't even capable of typing a reply.

It was sweaty firehall hot...  Like a redneck wedding in August because she's due to have her twins in September kinda hot.

Know what I mean Dean?

I just walked in myself...  45 minute wait in line to vote.  It's been a steady stream throughout the firehall all night.  The voting would go quicker if the old biddies working the election board would get their collective asses in gear.

There's 6 booths and at no point were all 6 filled.  That needn't be as painful as they made it. 

There were times 1 person was voting. 

My dad's cousin is the head of the group (my mother used to do it actually), and while she knows her stuff, the women working with her were ancient and were busy yakking to people they knew.   :-\

Plus it was hot...  It's November in Pittsburgh, and it's friggin' hot, and that firehall was hot...  Damn.

By all means, drool...

Before your eyes, witness the raising of the bar in 1:18 aircraft, as BBI sets benchmarks that every company must now live up to.

Hasbro, take notes, because your vehicles suck the sweat from a dead man in comparison to this thing of beauty.

By the way, Hasbro's pack-ins now officially wreak of "cheap" when compared to this plane's figure which not only sports super articulation, but removable officer's cap, leather flying cap, goggles, and oxygen mask.

Hasbro gives us what?  An underscaled , rehashed Y-Wing with cheaply kitbashed figure for $30 when BBI gives us this to-scale, brand-new sculpt, intricately detailed/sculpted, intricated decoed, licensed (for the noseart/designation), amazingly accurate plane with tons of separate and moving/functioning parts, as well as a pilot pack-in with tons of accessories and articulation.  And they give us that for $15 - $20 more.

Feeling ripped off by the "Big H" yet? 




Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Return Kilbourne to Daily Show
« on: November 2, 2004, 03:51 AM »
Being that it's fake news, it's inevitable that the show's going to dump on anyone in the public eye, liberal or conservative, so while I can clearly see Stewart's leanings towards liberal the show itself clearly makes fun of everyone...

I watch it every night, and they really don't pick sides IMO...  Of course Bush is going to take a little more flak at the moment, just as Kerry would if he were president.  The show has always been that way in my view.

As far as Stewart Vs. Kilbourne, I think it's a matter of opinion, but the show's never had the success it has now under Kilbourne so I'm hesitant to say Stewart isn't legitimately a better host.  Kilbourne was good though, so that's a tough call at best.

The ratings for the show are at all-time highs though I guess, it's winning awards left and right, it's considered one of the better shows on TV right now I guess...  I can't really complain.  I like it as it is...  I was sort of fearful with the last loss of reporters like Steve Correll, but the new people are filling in great or even better... 

It's one of the few shows I watch every night I'm home, so I'm pretty happy as it is, and hope Stewart's on the show for the long-haul.  To me it's a situation of not messing with perfection...  Only tweak I'd make is to have Lewis Black's reports on a little more frequently since he's one of my top 3 comics, but I could see where too much "Back In Black" could clog the show up some.  Only so much time...

Overall though, I love The Daily Show just fine as it is myself.

Hmmm...  A douche or a turd sandwich. 

Decisions, decisions...   :)

I'm a bit more critical than you Dim, but even with my criticism I'm still pleased as punch with the figure.  It's great to me.

The VOTC are, for the most part, everything the line should be, and should've been from the start.  Great stuff, and figure bliss for me!

Not I, though I'm gonna need a minty mint one to also keep my collection going.

As much as I wish they'd STOP with these figures, I have to say a complete mint carded set is sorta neat to have.  Like having a loose FreezeFrame or Force File set, or for a vintage nod a loose set of coins.

They're just something different...  One of the few things I hang to carded.

That picture at Scum would just confuse the majority who don't even know who CC is or where he came from.

Long-live Cannon Ball Run!

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Breaking the bank, what's the price?

Seriously though...  I think that's just speculation on the scale changes and such, as a reason for a major hike in price, but...  it happens, as with the PM Trek line(s).  Anything's possible.

Can't say I'm wanting to do a trade right now.  Too expensive...  I'm biding my time on all these.
