Doesn't sound like it will be painted, but rather it will be finished with a weathered "bronze" look.

Here's an updated picture...

Anyone actually bite the bullet and order this one?

Just out of curiousity, I spliced the 3 photos together...

Clicky the pic to check out the whole thing as 1 picture:

- I love the fact that the Ep3 Wookiee Warrior is different from the Preview figure.
- I love the fact that there are a ton of Army builder figures in there.
- Still don't know what a #52 "Tado" is, must be some prominent Jedi Padawan I guess  :-\
- #50 Anakin = creepy...
- I like how the picture includes both the blue & red guards!

Very excited to get my hands on these...

I've re-wound the tape (yes, I am a caveman with no Tivo :() and watched it 7 times now.

So beautiful...  :'(

Kubricks / Series 4

I'm probably preaching to the choir in here, but...

We finally got  Dale's long promised Carded Kubrick Feature up and running, so head on into our new Feature for all the details on those elusive exclusive carded Kubricks!

Dale - Are you sure you can't send them on a tour of Minnesota for Scott and I to uh "look" at them?   :P

Another lightning fast deal with Jesse!

Once again, I sold some extra stuff to Jesse.  We started the deal, closed the deal, AND he sent payment all in the same day!  Can't get much faster than that!   ;)

Thanks again for the quick and easy transaction, Jesse!  Your loot should be out in the mail tomorrow!

I personally think that he WILL eventually get voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame... but it will be posthumously.

Once he dies and is no longer around to enjoy it (or profit off it), the Veteran's committee will vote him in.   



Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Taxes

We used TurboTax for the first time this year.  The TurboTax software made everything go very quickly (started and finished in only a few hours) and it turned out to be pretty hassle free, even the Schedule A Deductions stuff.

After the Best Buy rebates and incentives, the software for Fed and State only cost about $15, so it was a great deal.  Plus, with the software, we got to e-File (for free after another rebate) and ended up getting our tax rebates within 10 business days!

We ended up getting a nice refund from Federal (cha-ching!) and a pretty small one from State (small is better than nothing though).



Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Gas Prices
« on: March 10, 2005, 04:14 PM »
Definitely a good time to bump this piece of crap back up.  I think it's funny that I keep seeing "National" news media outlets discussing gas hitting $2 a gallon. 

Yeah, last week around these parts we hit $2.19 and I was tempted to drag this thread back up.

I drove on fumes for 2 days hoping it would drop and managed to wait it out until it was back to a "low" $1.96  ::)

Today, we're sitting at about $2.09 at most places...  >:(

I guess "no" didn't mean never!

Looking forward to some more consistent sports chatter in here...

Kubricks / Series 4
« on: March 10, 2005, 01:02 PM »
For Series 4, I plan on buying a Master Case off eBay again.

I managed to snag 2/3 of the chases that way last time and I had relatively little trouble selling my extras (though I do still have 2 wickets and 1 Jawa left over from Series 3  ::)).

Maybe I can get a few of the same people to go in on the case with me again?

In other Kubrick news, my Max Rebo band set was shipped out to me this week so it should be here next week!   ;D


Celebration III: Indianapolis / Re: Autograph Guest List C3
« on: March 10, 2005, 12:19 PM »
From the Official Pix website:

We have about four more names pending and hope to announce them soon. Many, many of our customers have written requesting dozens of names.

As of 3/10/05, the following headline guests that we regularly work with can not attend due to schedule conflicts: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, James Earl Jones, Samuel L Jackson, and Christopher Lee. If their schedules open, rest assured we will do everything we can to get them to the show!

Right now we are at an unprecedented 39 guests, and will top 40 by the end of the week. We hope all STAR WARS fans will have an opportunity to visit Celebration III and meet this incredible lineup!

-Official Pix

No JEJ?  :(
No Sam Jackson? :(

I'd pretty much decided that the only people I'd stand in line to meet were: Ewan MgGregor, Harrison Ford, Sam Jackson, Billy D, and JEJ.

I'm almost 1000000% positive that Ewan or Harrison Ford will not be there, so that just leaves the Colt .45 Pitchman for me to hope to meet at C3...


JD Sports Forum! / Steroids in Sports
« on: March 10, 2005, 11:53 AM »
OK, since this is bigger than just NFL or MLB or the Olympics, I thought I'd get us rolling on this topic in our new Sports Forum!

So, in recent 'Roids news, the US Congress is trying to get baseball players to testify on the subject:

MLB leaders plan to fight subpoenas

Do you think these guys should have to testify on the subject?

Is it in baseball's best interest to never find out if Bonds or McGwire or Sosa were on steroids?   :-\

I don't know how I feel about it.  If the players did it, it kinda sucks, but then again there was no testing for it - who knows what the right answer is?
