Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Does this guy disturb anyone else here?

Yes, and yes to the hypnotized aspect too.

I saw commercials all summer for the theme park he ads for, and they're really disturbing.  Oddly, he looks a LOT to me like Dana Carvey in heavy make-up.

Really freakish...

I almost have a sick feeling when I see close-ups too.  Disturbing.

I was making some headway this summer with organizing, removing, selling off, and basically getting things in order.  At this point I'm bogged down and school just started today but I'm wanting to keep at the idea of building some shelves.  I have a nice idea of a shelving unit/entertainment stand combo...  I want to get my work bench built as well...

Lots of projects, and no time.  Not a good prognosis, but perhaps I can speed things along.

Thanks man,

I agree, the scale's perfect too.  I remember when I was working on increasing plans for something that I used a CT Stormtrooper because it's so well sized too. 

There's a few figures that work well for that, and this Lando would be an ideal one given his very neutral stance.  His articulation's pretty great too in the arms (rare that I praise the angle articulation over ball/sockets), so he can be action posed too.

Short of some leg articulation, he's great.  Knee hinges, or ball/sockets at the knees/feet,  for when he's hanging off the skiff would've been neat, but it wasn't to be.  :(

Just goes to show that I don't keep up with Unleashed...  You posted on those on the front page matt and a week ago + those arrived out here.  One of those odd times something shows here first I guess.

I need to pay more attention to what's not out I guess.  :(

I want a Bossk though.  He's nifty.

My search continues for VOTC Yoda and Vader, and OTC Jawas, Tusken, and Gamorrean Guard.  :(

That damnable Saga Madine's still on my list too...

I consider them akin to the Marines of old...  They perform ship's security primarily, but also function as working crewman aboard the ship (performing various specified duties/tasks).  They're a bit more valuable than a "grunt" soldier in that regard because they have skills beyond fighting.

That's how I've always viewed them personally.  Akin to the redcoats on British Naval vessels in the 18th and 19th century perhaps...  Like on Horatio Hornblower.  They seem to work anything that has a remote function in the navy.  Like even planet-side stations, such as the shield on Endor, which was directly linked to the DS2.

Buddha didn't acheive PERFECTION, just enlightenment.  Sheesh, dude needs to pick up an Introduction to World Religions book sometime.   ::)


Seriously, I like his softgoods cloak.  Nice.  Some will complain that sculpted cloaks look better, but I doubt Buddha would agree.

I'm wagering Malakili here but...  Wow, that's surprisingly good fatguy in a diaper sculpting.

Wish I had a set for fodder or to have them hang out at the Cantina.  That legit Christian toy line out (produced down in Pittsburgh actually) are like more in the 5" scale.  Blah.

I want my Christ to stand toe-to-toe with Wuher and Blue Snaggletooth.  And to knock a whiney bitch Luke across the table before he cuts Obi-Wan down in a mad, drunken rage.

Then he and the super holy friends ride away on swoops, raising hell and spreading the good words of their respective religions as they ride out of town...

Yeah, a bit overactive imagination on that, but they'd look good filling out the Cantina.

Luke in Messiah disguise.  One more way for Hasbro to put a Luke on the pegs?  Or simply Hasbro writing a ticket to hell?


The tail-end waves of the Saga line really were some obscure characters, some good new figures, and many much needed resculpts.  Lando alone got two, and his first was the Skiff Guard version of him.

Much needed?  Many debated that notion, but after seeing the new one it's tough to dispute that he needed it. and myself are proud to present the latest figure review of Lando Calrissian (Jabba's Sailbarge).

A good figure overall, and a great one to review, so Click Right Here to read the full review!  And of course, as always, share your thoughts here as well.

Beyond Wal-Mart, you wono't find much.

The only items I hear of at TRU's are sporatic (very sporatic) sightings of old stock that was lost in the back room, Command Cars, Battle ofo the Bulge Jeeps (which I believe are all gone), the odd airplane showing up in a return or the stockroom, and clearance playsets.

Oh, and the Walker Bulldog tank I think it is, which wasn't evne used in WW2 I believe but has a WW2 tanker.

Beyond that TRu is all BBI stuff.

Most Wal-Mart stores here have Sherman Tanks in Winter White...  There's also Cobra choppers, P-47's sometimes, and P-40 Warhawk planes, and Huey's in Air American deco.

Not a lot...  But some out there. 

Battle of the Bulge figures are available online...  So are the single-carded pilots.

I believe that's He-Man luke entirely with heavy modding.

Nice packaging...  I mean, seriously, that's creatively nice packaging.

Those are indeed cool Vator.

I like seeing others who go nuts for the military side of Star Wars...  It's a must that you play some of the games then though.

To me, the WEG books really expanded upon the military aspect of the films a good bit.  Lots of nice images, good stories and characters.  DIagrams of bases and battlefields.  Fun stuff.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Mister Hypocrite

Wanna bet?

Seriously, Sansweet's right here holding a .44 to my noggin'.

Honestly, I like the SE's enough to not gripe.  I got love-erly burnt edition of the originals...  I'm content.

And the Prequals aren't...  Well they aren't horrid.  They're ok I think.  I'm always happy after watching them so that's a plus, I guess.

He is still a hypocrite though, proven by the point of this thread.

That one's yours Dave?  haha, oh the irony.  :)
