Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Star Trek
« on: December 31, 2014, 06:32 PM »
I liked Trek...  Not so much TOS but I love TNG and DS9 (and Voyager to a lesser extent).  I like the new movies, but I'm also not one of the Trek fans with a stick up his ass about anything either.

It's like EU was to Star Wars...  I ignored it mostly and still will going forward.  A bad cartoon (which IMO Rebels is sorta leaning more to negative than positive) doesn't ruin the movies to me.  The Prequals didn't ruin the OT, etc., etc.

If it's good I'm glad.  If it's not, I don't care.

Scott, I'll try to get it together.  If I can't, I think I know someone on here who could.

Yeah I wasn't sure how to comment on any of that myself either...  I think I liked it though.  I know I dug her.  I just don't know what my thoughts are on the performance besides finding the muscle control impressive.

Also agreed that LoTR is possibly right up there with the OT and the Indy movies for me and these were nowhere near that.

Best way to sum it up IMO. 

The Hobbit is in my memory like the Prequals are for Star Wars...  I'll watch them, but I'll never watch them like I did the OT.

And likewise I'd put LOTR right up there with Indy and the OT. 

KotCS falls into that Prequal/The Hobbit category by the way.  I'll watch it, but with some eye rolling.

Interesting to see that apparently the Flak Bike is heading to production, if I'm guessing correctly.  A mix of a Kettenrad from World War 2 (think motorcycle and mini tankette have a baby), and a friggin' cannon, combined into a transforming vehicle...

This has been one of my top wants since they debuted prototypes a while back...  Artillery doesn't generally make for an exciting toy, but when it's a tank-ish motorcycle that transforms into artillery, how can you say no?

Jeff will cave.  He'll at least get a figure.  I can see it.

Saw $2.45 today.  It's getting close to where with my coupons from K-Mart I may get it for under $2/gal.

I do.  This was my first instance ever ( albeit as a bystander) of a potential cheating seller in that manner.  I find it curious.

Nobody does panel lines like the Japanese!  I love that figure.

Not thus far...  Toy fair isn't too far off so I'd say any sniff of toys we will get between feb and August will be there and will be meager.

Saw it over the weekend, and I would say it was about what I expected.  A lot of death and destruction...  Sets up LotR nicely but doesn't overdo it too much with the references.  It wraps up some relationships, a lot of reconciliation and all that.

I was a little miffed at how they handled some aspects of it, like drifting from the actual battle to focus on characters specifically far away from the action.  Hard to explain but it detracted something for me.  Plus it basically pulls you away from ALL these other characters you care about till the very end...  It was odd is all.

The Hobbit is not LotR and never will be.  It's ok though, and fun.

Wow.  Aliens has my attention some.  ET for an ET for E1 figure (seriously).

Trek and Trek TNG both have my attention...  and Jaws, and and and...  Good list.

I think a 2.5" line could happen and 4" figures could be canned...  It could be a way for Hasbro to reintroduce higher quality all around the line (vehicles, figures, etc.) while getting costs down so prices are at levels where they'll actually sell well.  I can see it going the other way too and being a 6" line for collectors and 4" line of 5POA stuff for kids and no 4" collector line at all.  I could see it being exactly what it is now too though as well.

I can't say I'll care tremendously, either way.  I'll be a little bummed at no 4" collector figures for the new films and what ultimately never was for the existing films and EU...  I'd also be glad to save the $ and move onto something else I find interesting.
