Star Wars Universe / Re: Disney to Purge Select EU
« on: April 25, 2014, 04:41 PM »
Interesting that some fans are up in arms about this and claiming Disney raped my childhood.

Not sure what's "interesting" about it. I know you hate EU so you don't care, but some of us do care. So it shouldn't be a surprise. I know we've discussed this before and I won't make a production about it again. I am just glad they are not just pretending the books/games/comics/etc didn't happen by using their "Legends" title.

They're not discarding it completely, it'll live on as an "alternate universe" type thing under the Star Wars Legends branding.

I can live with that Mickey

Got someone to pull a case from back at Target today, but he then showed me they do say "do not sell before May 1" on them so at least I know they are street dated until next Thursday.

Does anyone know if May 1 is a hard street date or just a general release date? I imagine the latter since so many places are selling them.

Obnoxious guy at one of the Targets by me that won't pull them from the back because first he said they "may be street dated" then decided he knew for sure they are street dated.

I worked at Target for a long time and ran both electronics and toys and am very aware of not breaking street dates, but this guy's attitude really bothered me. Both in person and then a few days later when I called and unfortunately he answered the call. Don't treat me like a moron.

That is if you walk into a fresh case. Around me the places that got cases sold through all of them in a day. I had a chance to grab a few, but with my two year old with me I didn't have a ton of time and then when I went back they were gone. The Walgreens near me must think I'm stealing. I stop in every day for 30 seconds and then walk straight out.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: TWD-To Read or Not to Read

Next question. Wondering how others read these.

I just finished volume 20. So do you wait for volume 21, etc. and read them that way or do you buy issue 121, 122, etc? Obviously it would be nice to know what is happening month to month, but I'm not a comic book guy and not a big fan of the thin little comics.

And you can laugh at me here if it is deserved, but could I go to my local comic shop and still find an issue from 6 months ago?

P.S. Does it make me a horrible person for loving Negan?

I'm reading this is a hoax. That sight doesn't post real news.

Wanted something Blade Runner for a while now so I picked up a carded Ertl Rachael's Spinner. Package not in great shape, but it still displays nice.

Picked up a custom painted loose Droids C3PO (regular pull apart vintage painted to look Droids). I'd say very good version. Good paint job. Very close to original colors. Blue in the eyes is too big compared to the real thing, but it holds the place of the real thing well enough for me until (I fear "if" is the better word) I get an authentic one.

Paid $11 for it and just watched a loose authentic go for $200+ so I'm happy.

I have a feeling if I ever have one of these for real it's going to just be his torso and head or something like that.

Not very exciting, but picked up a custom printed Mungo Baobab Droids cardback. Okay printing job and straight corners, but the artwork is cool (Mungo knocking out a couple Stormtroopers) and my favorite part is the second wave of Droids figures are all shown on the back with a description of their character.

And it cost me all of 99 cents w/ free shipping.

Another one down, three to go.

Added a loose Droids R2D2 to the collection today. No saber. Sticker is a little dirty and where the two ends meet it is missing a small piece of the bottom corner of sticker. But I'm happy with him. Paid a little more than I wanted to, but I still had some paypal sale balance and in the same lot I got the R2 Droids coin in a holder as well as a 1986 PVC Spain Droids C3PO.

Now I just need a relatively cheap Droids C3PO, Tig Fromm and Sise Fromm and, unless I win the lottery I'm not counting Vlix, I will be done with the "non variations" vintage figures.
