Wow, just 2 days later and I've already gotten my shipping notice on this thing. Should be here today or tomorrow, since their warehouse is just 45 minutes away. Cool! 8)

Looks like the Mini-Busts are arriving already!

In fact, DualSaberMaster recieved his today and was kind enough to send along some pics of his bust:

Looks pretty nice!

Where'd those sexy low BIN's go?!   :P

Well, if 3/4 of the items I listed in an afternoon sold within 30-45minutes of their posting, I'd probably raise my prices too...  :P

I think he faked it so he wouldn't have to face King James 1-on-1...  :-X

Nah, just kidding.  Everyone knows that LAkers like Kobe always give 100% every night.  ::)

Stupid internet filters...

I've got a bad feeling about this... like Scott said in a different thread, this is a bad sign of things to come.  I can only imagine that ANYTHING Hasbro can stick the SW label on they will.


As for Tater, well... I guess it's OK if you a Mr. Potato Head fan.  Since I'm not, well... I pass on this one.  :-\

Car won't start!   >:(

(I was going to plug it in last night, but I forgot   :().

Had to push it into the garage after the wife left, so it's warming up now though...

Last night started A Clash of Kings


Oooh... you will like it! 

Now we can finally resume our discussions on the happenings of the Stark Family.

Me?  I'm about 200 pages into this one:

I've had less time to read thanks to the busy Christmas season, but I've started up again in the last week...

We've already had our high today, it should be below 0 oF for the next 3 days, warming up to 5 oF on Monday :o

Unless, of course, they are wrong about THAT, too...  ::)

Stupid weather people...  >:(

Wow, those Metamorphs look kinda lame.

Maybe it's the small pictures, so you can't really see how cool they are, but I'd have to guess that they will suck.

I can't seem to recall an issue of Wolverine where he transformed into a jet plane...  :-\

The Royal Guard Bust-up seems to be exactly the same, nothing different I could see.

The Holo Emperor/Sidious is kinda nifty and should look good with the AFXpress Holo Sith 2-pack!

I guess I have one more to get :)

Looks like McF won't be going to the NBA All-Star Jam, so you can pick up the exclusives via the club:

"McFarlane Toys will be selling exclusive versions of two of the NBAšs most dynamic players -- Carmelo Anthony and Latrell Sprewell -- on beginning Thursday, Feb. 17. We produced a limited supply of each exclusive figures and will sell them for $10 each plus shipping, with a limit of two of each figure per household.

The Anthony figure is our NBA All-Star Jam exclusive and features the forward in his Denver Nuggets Hardwood Classics jersey driving hard to the net. The Sprewell figure is a redecoration of the guard/forward representing his current team, the Minnesota Timberwolves, and sculpted in mid-dunk pose. Each figure features a base and ball, and exclusive clamshell packaging.

Due to a change in plans, McFarlane Toys will not be attending this year's NBA All-Star Jam in conjunction with the NBA All-Star Game in Denver, CO, Feb. 17-21. Now, instead of traveling to Denver to get the event exclusive, collectors can purchase direct from us via the Collector's Club Store on "

Looks like you've got a good shot at nabbing Spree now, Scott!  ;)

Not quite as ironic, but still pretty unusual...

Amish Teen Electrocuted in Ohio


A 17-year-old Amish boy was electrocuted trying to remove a power line that got tangled in his horse-drawn buggy's wheels, authorities said.  The boy drove over a power line Tuesday that had sagged down within a foot of the road after separating from a pole, authorities said.

The line got stuck in the wheels and stopped the buggy. The boy got out and grabbed the 4,800-volt line in an attempt to remove it from the wheels, the Geauga County Sheriff's office said. He died at the scene.  The boy's name was not released because his family had not all been notified, officials said.

The Amish are a deeply religious group who shun modern conveniences such as electricity, telephones and car ownership. About 40,000 Amish live in Ohio, the most of any state.

The boy was traveling south on a road near Geauga-Trumbull County line in northeast Ohio, about 25 miles east of Cleveland.   The horse pulling the buggy was not injured.
