I can't believe that nobody has chimed in about how this new design will be shattering their childhood memories.  Apparently folks just don't care about this movie anymore.  Oh well.   :)

I would have, but risk sounding like a broken record (odd statement, since a broken record probably doesn't make any sound at all).

All of em!

There's always room for a Rattler.    ;)

On our way home from visiting my Wife's grandmother yesterday, we pulled into a convenience store to pick up a couple things.  They didn't have what I needed, so I just grabbed a bottle of water for my Wife who had waited in the car.  As I'm standing at the counter, literally 2 feet from the counter, another customer steps in front of me and sets his arm load of items on the counter, without saying "excuse me", or "I'm just going to set this down", right in front of where I'm standing, not on any other part of the big counter that wraps around (like 20 feet of counter space), so I say "Excuse me", no response, "Excuse me, sir!", the guy half turns and walks back towards the rest of the store past me, announcing that he wasn't "cutting", saying that I don't need to call him "sir" (I didn't realize that was no longer a polite term for an adult man you don't know...).  The clerk, who had just gotten to the register, sheepishly apologized about the people that come in sometimes.  I guess I won't be going back to that store.  Did I miss something and its ok to set something in front of someone who is already at the register without saying anything to them, wouldn't it be better to say, I'm just setting this down, or put it over to the side.....

I'd like to know what the guy was buying that was either so heavy or so bulky that he had to set it down anyway.  Seriously, has anyone ever bought so much stuff a C-store that you had to set it down?  "Stang, this 16oz soda and box of candy are too heavy to hold on to for the 90 seconds I'll be in line!"


I think the inclusion of R2-D2 is actually pretty important to this set. 

Why?  I'd rather see a new Ewok or a Rebel Commando given the potential for a different scene.

Moss, 4 catches 25 yards...0 TD's

On pace for... 816 yards and 5.3 TD's  :o

Okay, WTH is up with the Patriots?  I was tailgating at the Packer game, so I didn't get to see any of the do you let Miami rack up 38 points on a team that hasn't lost a game at home in like three years?!  That's insane.  I guess when I thought Moss could be worthwhile this year, I should have factored the the Pats stink now that they're not allowed to cheat and yes, apparently Brady was the whole team, defense included.   ::)

He looks like someone I know.

This receives my vote for most worthless post ever Anton.   ;)

Just wanted to pass along this feature over at Newsarama, which is a Friday Flashback focusing on Secret Wars.  I remember this comic and toyline being one of the main things that got me to expand beyond Spider-Man (and Batman) comics at the time, and get into the Marvel Universe as a whole.  Its kind of a nice trip down memory lane of one of the first major line-wide "events" that have become yearly these days.

That's funny.  I was a big Avengers fan and it was the Secret Wars event that got me hooked on Spiderman comics.  I wanted to see what happened with that black suit!

Big thanks to Jay on the Luke Legacy swap tonight and for letting me borrow his DVDs for the last three years.   ;)

I ordered one against my better judgement.  My willpower to avoid these is only offset by ridiculous pricing greater than $70 and this one made the cutoff.

Japan is finally rolling out take on Classics which is called Henkei and they're all have vastly superior paint apps compared to the US versions.  Megs and Screamer have been released in that line, but it's going to cost you just as much for the import as it would be to track down an original on eBay or what not.

....but here's more pics of RH/Classics/Animated stuff.  I do see a Classics Screamer in the gallery so he just might get rereleased.  *still hoping we get the other three seekers*

Oh - and I love that Snarl(Slag)/Sharkticon set.   :)

Is that Inferno near the bottom?  That doesn't look half bad for being outside the Alternators line.  Wonder how his scale matches up...
