Have you guys hear about this?

I heard on the radio today that Brosnan is out as Bond and Orlando Bloom will be his replacement in a prequel-Era Bond movie?!?

Star Wars Action Figures / Jeff's Custom Figures - Updated 6/7
« on: July 28, 2004, 06:26 PM »

I finally got off my lazy butt and decided to take some pictures of my 150+ custom figures to share with you guys.

First Up -

Baniss Keeg:

My recipe is very similar to some of the FFURG ones I've seen, but not quite the same:
Duros - head, hands, and boots.
FF BSH Helmet Luke - Torso, legs, arms
lotsa painting

I really like the way he turned out!  I think he is my favorite custom figure.   :)

Let's get this Thread started, baby!

Mmm... Padme.


Original Trilogy Collection / Hasbro's SDCC Q&A Session
« on: July 23, 2004, 12:16 PM »

Today's the day for the Hasbro Q&A...

11:30 to 12:30 (in Room 9) - Hasbro will host a Star Wars presentation with a Q&A session.

Think anything good will come out of it?  Anything more yet to be revealed?  Will we find out what's to come after OTC?  Will some putz waste Hasbro's time with a dumb question like: Is it hard to make figures?

I'll start the specululation and say that I hope we get some solid confirmation of the Coruscant wave and plans for the Oct04-Apr05 time frame.  Will there be new stuff or just nothing until the sneak preview stuff?  I'd also like to hear if there are any plans for more vOTC figures...

Just a few more hours until we find out I guess.

Bigger Breasts for Free: Join the Army

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Topless vOTC Luke

Something I haven't seen anywhere else yet, but Scum just put up a nice clear picture of shirtless vOTC Luke.

Luke - Will Dance for Cash

Thought all you other customizers out there might like to see what he looks like under there... not quite what I had hoped.   :-\


Original Trilogy Collection / TRU Naboo 4-pack
« on: July 21, 2004, 10:36 PM »
Info coming in from Comic-Con...

Looks like this set will include a kit-bashed Kaduu w/feathery saddle, kitbashed articulated knees Tarpals, Gungan warrior with minor paint changes, PotJ Security Battle Droid in neutral color, and Naboo Royal Guard with minor paint deco changes!

I think I'll have to grab this one for the new Kaduu w/Tarpals and the army-building figures that it offers... repacks I finally agree with!


Original Trilogy Collection / Coruscant Wave
« on: July 20, 2004, 04:58 PM »

I thought I'd start a thread here in hopes of seeing these guys at SDCC this week...

The GH Swami and a few others have forseen that the first wave after the 38 OTC repacks will be the Coruscant wave: Pablo Jill (Jedi), Sly Moore (Palpy's Aide), and Senator Yarua (Wookiee Senator).

I think that, perhaps, the forthcoming Coruscant wave may have accidently been confirmed, as reports are coming in that the latest issue of the SW Insider has this to say:

"since we never saw Sly's hands in Episode II, Hasbro was set to give her birdlike talons in an exercise of creative license. However, this was nicked just in case her hands are visible in Episode III."


Let's hope we find out more from SDCC!


Original Trilogy Collection / OTC Wal-Mart Exclusive Carry Cases
« on: July 13, 2004, 10:30 AM »
Seems like it.

Hasbro announced today that they'll be showing off Wal-Mart exclusive C-3PO and Darth Vader carry cases at this year's SDCC booth.

Yea!   More re-hashed goodness!  ::)

Once upon a time, the GH Seer, The Swami, predicted these may come with a figure as well, but no official confirmation on that.

Anyone gonna actually buy these?  

Not me... unless they do have pack-ins which are new, but somehow I highly doubt that.  :(


JD Sports Forum! / GI Joe and Baseball
« on: July 1, 2004, 10:04 AM »
Saw this in the paper this morning and wondered what you guys and gals thought...

Twins' G.I. Joe giveaway criticized

Basically, The Minnesota Twins will be giving away an exclusive GI Joe action figure (Duke) painted up with the Team's colors.  These will be given to the first 5000 kids (13 and under) who attend a game this weekend.

It was supposed to be a patriotic move for the 4th of July, GI Joe, Apple Pie and Baseball, but all the crazies have come out of the wood-work saying that GI Joe has no place at the ballpark.

Are the Minnesota Twins sponsoring a war-drive by giving these away to kids?  Or were the Twins just trynig to give away a cool TOY to kids to celebrate the 4th of July?

I am pretty sure that the Twins had NO intention to recruit for the military OR support any particular War with this give-away.  I think they were just trying to give a cool patriotic toy to kids and it seems to be back-firing in their face.  I don't really think that having a GI Joe as a kid will automatically make you a war monger as some of these people seem to think.

Anyone else have thoughts?  Does GI Joe belong at the ballpark or is it an atrocity?


Watto's Junk Yard / A "Friendly" Dog Saves Toronto
« on: June 25, 2004, 04:05 PM »
All you Canucks out there thank your lucky stars for dogs, eh?

Friendly Dog Prevents Killing Spree?

Crazy... I dare say though, that you won't find cats repelling 6,000 bullet toting crazies!


Original Trilogy Collection / OTC Package Insert
« on: June 18, 2004, 09:20 AM »
Hiya, has a cool feature on the Endor Ambush set... but of course, since the set is full o'lame re-packs, the interesting part is the new OTC insert!

Check out the coverage here for the Endor Ambush stuff or clicky on the picture below for the Insert goodies:

Nice to see the little package catalogs return!


Watto's Junk Yard / Has Anyone Built a Deck Before?
« on: June 16, 2004, 04:45 PM »
Hiya Guys Gals (I know there are 1-2 of you females out there),

Summer is here in full effect and we are ready to get rolling on our big summer project:
We are attempting to add a deck onto our house this summer.  

We started out in May (the five days it didn't rain) by preparing the ground/landscaping around the house:  moving trees/bushes/shrubs, building a new garden, pulling out some old hostas, etc.  Now that the area along the house and yard have been landscaped for the deck, it's time to actually start building the dang thing, and the more I learn about it, the more daunting a task it is appearing to be.

I've got my plans (thanks Home Depot!) and building permit in hand, and the raw materials will be delivered this weekend.  We've also rented up some power equipment this weekend to help us dig the 42" deep holes in my yard this weekend...

Anyone got some helpful tips for digging post holes?
Anyone out there in JD land ever built a deck before?  
Any helpful tips that you can offer up to a Novice Deck Craftsman such as myself?
(sarcastic "don't nail your hand to the deck" comments are not needed, but fully expected from you turkeys)  :P

I realize that we're all SW dorks, therefore the stereotype indicates that we aren't exactly outdoor-builder type craftsman, but I don't believe in stereotypes, so I'd like to think that SOMEONE else has gone through this before...



Original Trilogy Collection / EPISODE III SPOILER ITEM
« on: April 28, 2004, 02:39 PM »
Hi Guys,

I wasn't sure which forum to put this in, but apparently has an Episode 3 item up for pre-order!


It's probably just mis-listed, but this might just be our first Ep3 preview item???

Hall of Justice / DC Pocket Heroes
« on: April 15, 2004, 04:01 PM »
Anyone else collect these?

I do, and I love them.  Sure, they're hard to stand up, they tip over easy, etc. but I really love them.  Great character selection so far.

I finally got a chance to get to the comics book store last night and pick up my Green Lantern box set:
Green Lantern (John Stewart)
Sentinel (Alan Scott)
Guy Gardner (Yellow Ring)
Green Lantern (Kyle - original duds)
Parallax (Hal Jordan)

I'm a big fan of the Silver Age GLC, so I was pretty stoked to pick this one up.  They look nice with my GL (Guy), GL (Hal), GL (Kyle - new duds), Sinestro, and Guardian.

Anyone else have a craving for DC's Pocket Heroes?

Or am I the only crazy person who buys these...
