Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Sesame Street
« on: September 15, 2004, 03:20 PM »
For some reason, I really want a set of Sesame Street Kubricks now.   :-\

My Top Five - all classics:
The Rubber Ducky  lovin' Ernie
The Paper-Clip collecting Bert
The Count, ah-hahahaha
Grover (or SUPER Grover)
Cookie Monster

I could really take or leave the Elmos, Prarie Dawn, Telly, Zoe junk they have on now a days.   IMHO they suck, but my nephews seem to like them a LOT.  Dumb kids.  ::)

Heck, I can sometimes still remember lots of the skits from those days, they just seem to pop into my head every so often. 

Glad to hear I'm not the only person that has this happen to them.   :-\ 

To this day, old skits pop into my head when someone says something to trigger the memory....

- When a family member says, "Duh" I'm always tempted to respond, "Ooor.  Door."  or maybe "Og.  Dog."

 - When ever someone asks me if something is NEAR or FAR from my house, I always picture poor Grover running around yelling "NEAR!" or "FAR!"

Gone are the days of 3...2...1...Contact! and The Electric Company too, both of which I watched as much as I watch Sesame Street.

Jeff 

ps.
When I was about 3, I went to see "Sesame Street on Ice".  I was picked out of the audience to ride on a sleigh with Bert and Ernie... in the photos my mom took, I look about as happy as any 3-yr old could ever look!   ;D

$79.99?!?  :o

Cripes!

I guess that means that the retail on these suckers is gonna jump back up to $6-7 per figure!   >:(

I wonder if TRU/Target/Wally will jump before or after Christmas?

Well, I'm back again. 

The two extra boosters I ordered on-line arrived in the mail today (FAST!).  So, with those 2 plus the original booster I bought and my recently  completed trade (thanks, Matt!), I've got the following:


Common figures (16 of 16): :)
  6  Elite Rebel Trooper
  8  Hoth Trooper
17  Rebel Pilot
18  Rebel Trooper
19  Rebel Trooper
20  Wookiee Soldier
35  Snowtrooper
36  Stormtrooper
37  Stormtrooper
38  Stormtrooper
41  Bespin Guard
45  Ewok
51  Jawa
53  Mon Calamari Mercenary
57  Tusken Raider
59  Twi'lek Scoundrel

Uncommon figures (10 of 16):
16  Rebel Officer
23  Elite Snowtrooper
24  Elite Stormtrooper
32  Royal Guard
33  Scout Trooper
39  Stormtrooper Officer
44  Duros Mercenary
47  Gamorrean Guard
49  Ithorian Scout
58  Twi'lek Bodyguard

Rare figures (2 of 16):
  3  Chewbacca - SWEET! ;D
46  4-LOM

Very Rare figures (0 of 12):
31  Probe Droid - had, but traded away

So, I picked up 3 boosters so far and nabbed 2 R and 1 VR.  Not too shabby, especially since one of the rares was one I REALLY wanted!  Plus, I was able to trade away my VR to get a bunch of the C/UC figures I still needed.

AND, I've got a coupon to a local gaming store in Oakdale for BOGO 50% off on Rebel Storm, so I'll likely stop by after work tomorrow and grab two more boosters!  :)

Thanks for the tip!

Got my pre-order in, not terribly thrilled but it will probably look OK with Yoda and R2/3PO sets.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: TRU Endor 4 Pack
« on: September 14, 2004, 02:48 PM »
Ugh.

My local TRU is FLOODED with these things.  They are piled up 20 deep, right next to the Jedi Warrior 4-packs where I am sure they'll sit until unwitting Grandmas buy them for holiday gifts.  :P

What a waste of space!  They started out pretty nice with the Imp pack, but then Hasbro had to go and cheap out again.  Way to run this idea into the ground, Hasbro!   >:(

Kubricks / Re: Power of the Kubricks!
« on: September 14, 2004, 02:31 PM »
It's not much yet, but...



Well, I managed to nab a few more of these little guys in a trade, so very soon I'll be adding Greedo/Tusken/Obi-Wan to my shelf!   ;D

Still watching eBay for cheap speederbike sets to pop up...

Just completed a trade, so I thought I'd show off update where I was at:


Common figures:
  8  Hoth Trooper
35  Snowtrooper
36  Stormtrooper
37  Stormtrooper
38  Stormtrooper
45  Ewok
51  Jawa
57  Tusken Raider
59  Twi'lek Scoundrel

Uncommon figures:
16  Rebel Officer
23  Elite Snowtrooper
24  Elite Stormtrooper
32  Royal Guard - w/bent force pike
33  Scout Trooper
39  Stormtrooper Officer

Pretty good for only buying one booster pack so far.  ;)

I have ordered a few more on-line and they should be here by the end of the week.  I've decided that I don't really need a complete set of these, just going to focus on Imp Troops and my favorite Characters and try to skip the EU stuff.

I'll probably end up trading off most of my Rares and VRs for Imp troops/Han/Chewie so you guys might benefit from my boosters as much as I do ;)

Fellas,

RE: flex player

LET IT GO.

I'd hate to see this thread closed...

Anyone besides Colman go and see Without A Paddle?  I have not...

Guess what movie I went to see tonight...

Yep.  A few scenes with Lillard and friends in nothing but boxers.    :-\

I have to admit that I actually laughed at more than a few parts though.   :-[  There were a LOT of SW and Indy references, even vintage 3PO had a small role to play...

Fellas,

I think we should drop the flex argument debate.... it seems to be leading down a dark path.  Let's just agree to disagree and leave it at that.

 :-\

Yet somehow, amidst it all, the Twinkies just keep winning...  I just don't get that.  Oh wait, yes I do.  They play in the worst division in all of baseball.  That's right, now I remember!

Sounds like someone's jealous!   :P
