Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Rebelscum Spam Mail? WTF???

I was told that it was a mistake, and that I've been around too long to be banned for someone else's actions. 

Yeah, well...

So, even though both Jesse and myself have a year on you, we weren't "around too long to be banned for someone else's actions."   ::)

Of course, we don't have 10,000 posts and we also have a closer relationship with JD (and the offender) than you do Rob since you are a newer staff member.

Apparently, there's "you've been around too long" and there's "you've been around JD too long"...  :P

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: digital photo printing services
« on: April 5, 2005, 05:26 PM »
We've got a place we take all our regular film to get developed (Proex) and we now take any digital stuff to get printed there too until we find a printer we like for home.

They've got one of the "easy to use" set-ups where you plug in your Flash Card and just print photos you want from there.  There is always someone there who can help if things get messed up or something isn't turning out right.

Plus, I've found the quality of the printing and the photo paper at an actual Camera/Photo place is soooo much better than the set-ups at Wal-Mart, Target, Cost-Co, etc. 

Sure, you can get $0.09 cent prints at some places, but like the saying goes, you get what you pay for...  :-\

Hooters every night? ;D

I need to be in at least 1 jedidefender hooters gathering photo.


You can't get into Hooters, can you Kevin?  If so, then that's a problem, 'cause that's specifically why were going to be hanging out there the whole time...  :P

He can probably get in if he brings his Grandma with him...  ::)

Ain't no party like a Gramma Party!


Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS ARC-170

Did anyone else end up with four extra stickers and no spot on the instructions as to where to put them? This annoyed me.

I finally got around to assembling my ARC last night and I too was left with 4 stickers.

I just used my "imagination" and stuck them on the bottom of the ship since it seemed to be lacking in stickers.  The sticker witht he triangle I stuck on the wing, kinda under where the one on the top wing went.  the other two parallelogram type stickers I stuck on part of the wing in a place where they kinda seemed to go.

If it was wrong, well then I guess it's wrong.    :-X


Revenge of the Sith / Re: Target Figure with Cup Sets
« on: April 5, 2005, 11:52 AM »
I know the three second wave OT cups were up for sale at Amazon in Japan, but did anyone hear about someone who ordered them and got them shipped to them?

No, no one I know who ordered them (including me) ever got them.  My order was cancelled with a "we are not expecting this anymore" type e-mail.  :(


Did these three cup sets ever come out? Now that we have the three cups from ROTS, it would be great to get them - if just for the cups alone....

No, they were never released.   :(

The early salesman samples popped up on eBay and a few Asian stores took pre-orders only to have them cancelled a few months later.  These 3 cups (and the rumored next wave of Vader, Greedo, Luke) are just another one of those mystery items that dissapeared into the night (like CD-ROM Bespn Dinner Vader).

I think I have 3/4 of it, just can't figure out the "clue" on the EB Kit...  >:(

I forgot about this lame contest.   ::)

OK, I have all 3 exclusives in front of me now.

I've got the Target Vader and Holo Yoda figured out... working on the EB Kit now...

Just thought I'd post in here for no reason...

Oh yeah, by the way as long as I'm here -

The LAkers =
7-16 (.304) Since the All-Star break
5-15 (.250) In their last 20 games
3-12 (.200) in their last 15 games
1-11 (.083) in their last 12  games

If they continue at this rate, they'll be winless the rest of the year... :-*


The Wolves
12-8 (.600) Since the All-Star break
10-5 (.666) in their last 15 games
8-4 (.666) in their last 12  games

Still not making the playoffs, but at least they are trying...  ;)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Target sale = $5.00 for basic figures
« on: April 4, 2005, 03:45 PM »
Man, that's definitely the way to do it, Jeff! 

No kidding, any time you can walk away from Target with 56 figures for $208.74?  :o

It boggled my mind that I saved $148.50 off the original $5.99 price at Target or even $103.77 off the Wal-Mart $5.24 price...  ;)

The savings will go towards the Celebration 3 Hooters activities budget.

Maybe I haven't been paying attention, but I was unaware that the first 56 figures were out already??

What I meant was that I bought 56 figures total - 1 to open, 1 to keep carded of the first 28 which was all they had at my local Target.

Sorry about the misunderstanding.   :-[

My wife let me head off to Wal Mart on Saturday and I went nuts!  I filled my cart wqith all I could find.  But then I started looking at them a little closer and put back R2-D2 and Yoda.  My Wal Mart only had 1-28  No Jedis around.  I got my unleashed as an earlty Birthday present.  Weee!

Glad you could make it out for some shopping, wasn't sure you'd get to go... AND Happy Birthday my South Dakotan friend!  Maybe you'll be back more now that a new movie is coming out...  ;)

I think its just the angle of that shot, but from the other pics we've seen of this, I think it is some sort of antennae coming from his back (backpack type thing?) or something, but I'm not sure.

Here's the EE picture - definitely an antenna of some sort...

Here's how I faired today...
Guess total = $576.52

Actual Total = $527.44

Since I took my reciept to Target totday to get a price adjustment, I can knock $53.14 off the total!

Actual Total = $474.30  Woo-Hoo!
