The Prequel Trilogy / Re: The Phantom Menace: Was it That Bad?
« on: April 7, 2008, 11:40 PM »
TPM is easily the worst of the SW movies.  Its only redeeming values are as follows:

1.) It sets up the next two movies
2.) Introduces Qui-Gon and Maul
3.) Has one of the best lightsaber fights of all six movies with Maul fighting two Jedi

I don't hate E1, but I do find it really boring through most of the movie.  I'm sure Jar Jar and the pod race are fun for some kids, but I can barely stay awake through the whole race.  I was okay with Jake's performance as a young Anakin, but way too many plot stinkers for my liking (only one TF control ship left to guard the planet? Anakin accidentally launches into space then accidentally blows up the droid control ship by accidentally flying into it and accidentally launching missiles?  That's more ridiculous than Greedo shooting first.   ::)

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Battlestar Galactica

I haven't been watching the series as closely as some of you...do we know for a fact that the "humanoid cylons" don't age?  Sure they download into a fresh body when they die, but they are essentially flesh and blood humans, right?  If so, then the final five could have been created many many years prior as babies that would grow up not knowing they are cylons. 

What I want to know is this: is it just coincidence that 99.9999% of the human race is decimated, but the final five (who all come from different backgrounds) all make it to the Galactica and survive?  That seems a little far fetched.  I'd almost rather see the body snatcher theory come into play - maybe they were all replaced when the cylons boarded Galactica a while back or when they were in the New Caprica camps.

Got my monster load of imperial scanning crew guys from my favorite Canadian today.  Thanks Bud!

Mikey, if you want to use Oakdale for dumping until July, go ahead.  Honestly, I won't mind if you dump .. there since it is already filled with useless junk. 

I do Suburban/Woodbury/NSP, Matt does Midway/WSP/Suburban, and you do VH/Shoreview/NSP pretty regularily...

I started buying up the Iron Man figures.  Iron Man had always been a favorite of mine, from the comic series through the animated series, the original Iron Man Toy Biz line and onto Marvel Legends.  The figures are actually pretty cool so far.  I managed to get both exclusives.  Not sure if I'll buy everything, but so far the 6" figures have been pretty cool.  Although I think the Iron Monger should probably be larger.

I picked up the Target Silver Centurian with a coupon I had and am really liking this line.  I'll probably get the Mark II and Mark III at some point and the WM Exclusive War Machine as well.  Not as interested in the bad guys or the Mark I, but maybe I'll change my mind after seeing the movie.

Picked up a couple of Biker Scouts, a 501st, and a few other Legends at Target today.  Time to army build during the lull...

Am I the only one that thinks Transformers shot themselves in the foot by getting rid of the Alternators line?  Those things always sold out at the stores I hit and I bought close to every one of them even at $20 a pop.

I certainly don't.  There was more than enough of these things sitting on the shelves constantly with the exception of a few characters.  These were very complex in the transformations so that probably led the kiddies away even though the ALTs were obviously aimed at collectors. 

Hasbro was also running out of ideas for cars, with Prime being the only execption as one of the larger vehicles and Screamer to some degree, but he wasn't marketed as an ALT.  Takara/Tomy is starting to reboot the Binaltech line with a repaint of Decipticharge as Arcee, and I think a yellow Prime.

There's still a few vintage characters they could touch on, but look at the last two releases - Ravage & Rumble?  Those were tapes...Not automobiles.  I would love to see this line continue, but I think it's been put to bed.

Well, I agree with a lot of those points, but I never thought Ravage or Rumble should be in this line - would have much rather seen runabout and runamuck.  I would have liked to see a few more of the autobots - some kind of smaller compact for the little guys like Bumblebee and more of the bigger G1 guys like Red Alert.   Thing is, these fit perfectly with the masterpiece line, so if you want more decpticons, this helps oen the door for a bigger Soundwave, the tapes, Shockwave, Seekers, etc.  :-\  I guess I shouldn't complain - this is one more line I don't have to spend big bucks on.

How much are they? I plan on getting M2, M3 & Monger. Maybe M1.

Target has them for $10 a pop, which feels a little high to me.  I'm either getting them via trade or waiting for a $7.99 sale, which I'm sure is in the works.

Vent away, JACKOFTRADZE!

At least we have an opportunity at Target to get them to pull stuff from the back.  Granted it can be rough some times to get the employees to do so, but we don't have the "luxury" of this option at TRU and WM.  The only response I get out of them is what's out is all we have. 

I take what I can get.

Gotta side with Mikey on this.  It is frustrating when Red Shirts won't help you out - after all, you're essentially going out of your way to ask them for an opportunity to take your money.  But having the stockroom checkers every few aisles and at least potential for someone to check the backroom for you is light years beyond whatever Wal-Mart or TRU will do for you.

I've been too lazy to make a run to Wisconsin so I've been taking small dumps at some of the East side Targets....
