Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Collecting: Did You Intend to Go This Far?

I collected vintage as a kid and just picked up the POTF2 Fett in '95 because he looked kind of cool.  An overflowing SW room later says "NO...I did not intend to go this far, but I am lovin' it!"

They can still sell 5 lb metal trucks to club other kids with, but all of my SW guns need to be made out of bendy silly puddy?  harumpf!

Bay reposted saying he acted rashly and WILL do number 2 now.  ::)

Funny. My potty-training two-year old said the exact same thing to me last night!  :P

That's the funniest thing I've heard all month.   ;D  :D  Wish my kids would give me some kind of warning - we're still in the butt sniffing stage.  Thanks for the chuckles.

My guess is 8 will be out around Nov/Dec and then 9 around Dec/Feb...

My guess is that 9 will hit Dec/Jan...makes no sense to release them in December, hold out through a 31 day month like January, then come back with more of them in February.   ;)

I'm just tired of the whole "Let's be totally PC and not offend anyone" attitude that the whole country has taken on.  Its a fictional story, so why should it have anything to do with the issues in the Middle East?  How does America's Elite Fighting Force taking on an paramilitary army of baddies bent on world domination offend or hurt anyone?

Rumor on IRON MAN (SPOILER ALERT) is that Tony Stark now get's shrapnel because he's in the Middle East...either incorporate current events into your flick or ignnore them, but you don't have to totally revamp the entire concept of GI JOE on the off chance that it hits too close to home for someone. 

Heck, if anything, they might get some free publicity if they stayed true to form.  :P

Got my TIE Interceptor today, but the box is pretty banged up.  Sort of a hollow victory.   ;)

Watto's Junk Yard / GI Joe - The Movie
« on: August 27, 2007, 01:45 PM »
Well, that's one movie I no longer need to see.  Here's the money quote:

"Variety offers this new description of the team: "G.I. Joe is now a Brussels-based outfit that stands for Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity, an international co-ed force of operatives who use hi-tech equipment to battle Cobra, an evil organization headed by a double-crossing Scottish arms dealer. The property is closer in tone to X-Men and James Bond than a war film."

 ::)  :P  >:(  :-[  ???

That is a must have.  I'm going to need a new SW room just for comic packs...

That's so funny because of the 5 I've opened, plus the Order 66 one, I have to either hunch the figures over or put them in walking position to get them to stand erect. ???

Maybe you should try to stand them without an erection.  ;)

It's a custom.  The bubble's all wrong.   ;)

First thing I noticed.  Damn, if I'm not careful I'm going to start looking like a Star Wars geek.

That was pretty obvious, seeing as how I made one that looks just like it.  Why do people take the time to make fake crap like this?  All you did was was gum up a perfectly good loose Fett.  Oh, and if someone slept with my girlfriend, I'd do a lot more than dip their Fett in honey and send them a cozy little vidmail.

What a jip.

Agreed.  Nice to see DC continue their stumble, while Marvel just gets better and better.

I found the mega packs at TRU today, but had to pass on them.  They had the Sentinel and Galacticus ones - isn't there supposed to be an Avengers one with Goliath?  I might buy that, but $11 seems steep.

With the exception of Iron Hide, I'm really not liking the movie figures.  All of their faces look goofy to me.  I swear, every time I see one I think of that robot from "Short Circuit"...Johnny #5.   ::)

  Despite whatever the manager told you, I'm sure the lady left with every gold coin they had. 

No, you see, that's one of the reasons why she came in with guns blazing. She blamed me, and rightly so, for them limiting her quanties the previous day.

If they were already limiting her quantities, why did she want all of the gold coins you had?

Yeah, but he still ain't gonna be able ta stand. :P

My Order 66 Mace Windu Galactic Marine stands just fine...


Both my TAC and O66 figures seem to stand okay as well.  ;)
