That's interesting.

What all extras do they have?  Any additional footage my videotaping feind? 

Nothing here in Pitt yet.  Soon though I hope.  Soon...

I thought he was trying to decide if it's a coin or a medallion?

Image for fun...

Remember openers for those damaged.  I'm an opener and will take anything I can find personally, and even the extra damaged stuff just to help out the minty's out there.

Took a damaged VOTC the other day just because it was gonna sit, I could tell.

Toy Reviews / NEW! Review: Tanus Spijek & J'Quille!
« on: August 12, 2004, 12:49 AM »
Yup folks, back again with a new review.  My Deluxe Durge was just a starter for great things to come as our own jokabofe's going to personally be helping to get my reviews up routinely at the site now, so expect good things (fingers crossed here) to come in the near future.

We have reviews that go back as far as the Clone Wars line and beyond, so good stuff on the way (Or I like to think anyway).


This go-round is Tanus Spijek & J'Quille, Jabba's 2 furball bafoons in his palace, and two great figures to review.

By all means, click through RIGHT HERE and check out all the reviewing goodness.

Keep your eyes peeled for a new title for our reviews section as well, and for many more reviews to come!

My financial situation's in the toilet at the moment, but I'm goiong to TRY to help who I can as much as I can, and with so many of you NOT having K-Marts I doubt I'm able to make much of a dent.

I'm sure others will put forth the effort if they have the ability.

KM's a big player here yet, so I'll do my best to help and let you know when/if I nab any extra sets and I'll cruise the "I need help with these" posts and offer them up in the order I see 'em.

No control from the start I think.

Mihalko, who said sexual arousal does occur, and that participants shouldn't be turned off or scared by erections. "They happen."

Ya know...  I use this one a LOT, but nobody buys "They happen.", even if they just do happen.

Oh well...  Win some...  Lose some...  Scare some away with your manhood.  Such is life.

Great story, but one disappointment.

Not one mention of a jeep/SUV flipping over.  :)

That was funny, and the picture makes me laugh.

Interesting news, but sounds like it may nt happen at all.

I figured this story would've surely had a series of "EU" to it somewhere.  There's a lot you could come up with.  Hell, I'd just like to know what even ahppened in the first place besides the vague "Apocolypse" references.  

Who fired at who?  What lead to everything.  I'd buy that EU. :)

OOOoooo goody.  A new Cantina alien, an improved Doc, and an improved Wuher.

I can't wait.  Wave 2 though...  :(  Bleh.

I had not heard this, but Gibson's still spry enough to pull it off if he did it.  

I'd just worry it'd be a bastardized Road Warrior, ala the sequal to "Escape from New York", or some such.  Something that tries to hard to mimic the originals (or in this case, "the best") for a new audience...  

I'd like seeing it if it tied some things up...  If it at least showed some conclusion to how society developes.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Pegwarmer of the Year Award
« on: August 11, 2004, 12:09 AM »
In Pittsburgh, the reigning champ is STILL the Hoth Rebel Sooldier.  This guy's dominating pegs at Wal-Mart stores, a few Targets, and TRU's he's at times the only figure it seems.

NOT good.

Had this figure been a GOOD figure, would he be sitting?  I somehow doubt it.  If he'd had a neutral pose, incredible arm articulation, a proper height, and a nice sculpt, he'd have been one of the hottest figures for army builders in '03/'04 I believe.  He might've even required repacking to satiate demand.

Throw a working holster w/removable to-scale RFT gun, and a removable hat and you'd have a figure you couldn't have kept on the pegs IMO.  SA would've made him so hotly demanded it'd have taken army builder sets to make people happy I think.

In the same vein, some Wal-Marts in my neck show signs of the Yavin wave backing up, but I think you'll see them move eventually.  Antilles seems to back up then trickle off slowly.  "Dutch" and TIE Pilot never last.  Dodonna's always left last.

I see the Hoth Soldier everywhere though, save for a few Target stores who had been emptied prior to OTC shipping.  

It's really terrible.

Now, WM has pegwarmers exclusive to themselves...  The Younglings/Yoda E2 repacks, and the female Jedi repacks (Aayla Secura and Barris).  They are EVERYWHERE at Wal-Mart.  I honestly can't think f a Wal-Mart that desn't have at least one of those figures, and most of them have entire pegs full of them.  One WM in particular near me has the normal peg hooks filled with them, and then n an Endcap they have a TON of stuff from the end of Saga like Hoth, Yavin, Star Destroyer, and Jabba's Palace waves.  

Endor was there, I guess, but sold out.  The rest are just hanging around...  They're stripped down, and there's less every time I go, but it's an ENTIRE endcap, so it's slow dwindling at that store, and there's still those repack Jedi and Younglings in the regular area just sitting on 10 pegs or so full.

Beyond Thunderdome was on tonight, and my mother and I were talking and she said she saw my brother also watching a Mad Max film, and she asked me questions about like where Max went, etc...

And, I'd never really thought about it, but this is a series I REALLY like, and I feel all 3 were solid films, but I honestly don't know what else there is?

What did happen to Mad Max?  There's some illuding towards the lost children making a society...  The oil hogs in The Road Warrior make a home as the "great Northern Tribe" as well...

But is there more to this series that maybe you guys know of?  Comics, novels, what?

I was thinking too, that in this day and age of video games that meld genres together like GTA, or Halo, how nice a well made Road Warrior game could be, but I digress.

I'd just never really thought about this series, and if there's more to it...  I haven't seen the original Mad Max in so long I don't even recall the details as to what happened to the town he was from, or the people.  It's just vague recollection, and that I actually liked it too.

What's the deal anyway?  Are any of you guys Road Warrior nuts?

I've found the guns to be pretty rigid in cmparison to others actually.  Han's didn't pull as much detail as the Cantina's, but the 2-pack Han's gun (virtually identical, with only minor differences in the sculpt) is far more detailed than both and a really rigid plastic.  Go figure.

Leia's stormie blaster's rather nice thugh...  As rigid as any ofo those things are.
