Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Your Collecting Budget?
« on: September 3, 2009, 01:28 PM »
I've never had a budget before. I've had different levels of what I allowed myself to buy at different times. But with so many things coming out at a time lately I really start to wonder if I shouldn't come up with a budget soon.

Finished Abyss today and it was pretty good.  I didn't realize there is going to be a 4th book, but it doesn't come out until March!

That really sucks that it is such a long wait. Especially considering how little time there was between the other three books.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases

Thanks to a friend I now have the Ambush on Vulture's Claw BP. I like it more than I expected.

Jeff- I take it by the lack of a DPCI for the Target Clone builder sets that we don't know that yet?

Thanks for posting that Jeff.  Man, that's a lot of stuff.  I'm glad I'm not trying to get all of it - it would almost be enough to just keep up with the exclusives, let alone the mainline stuff that is coming out.

I wish you hadn't posted this because it is so true and it makes me want to cry a little. :'(

Episode 1 / Re: Look what I just scored!!!

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Walmart CW Octuptarra Droid

Did anyone else hear/read any body else saying this was found?

Someone on Scum claims to have found one of the new waves at a Utah WM.

Mist Hunter
Anakin's Y-Wing
Windu's Fighter w/Ring
Rebel Transport - variant??

I realize that Hasbro's release lists are far from perfect, but the Malevolence wave was supposed to be in stores before the Mist Hunter wave. I wonder what that's all about.

I pray to God that the same thing that happened with those three CW waves doesn't happen here. That is too much money at once. DON'T DO IT HASBRO!!!!!

12" Figures / Re: Sideshow 12" Grand Admiral Thrawn

Does anybody know when this will be shipped? One of my sort of local toy stores is pretty good about getting Sideshow stuff and I may have to bite on this if they do get it.

I WANT to purchase the two new Clone Wars books that have come out but I like to pick this kind of stuff up used at "Half Priced Books". Normally I don't have a problem finding it that way. But I think no one is willing to spend $15 for a over sized paperback new to then have a copy to sell to the used place.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: The Phantom Menace: Was it That Bad?
« on: August 27, 2009, 12:17 PM »
There was some bad acting and bad dialog. Did this particular story make for a great script for a movie? No, but to me the overall idea of setting up Anakin's fall and seeing how Palpatine duped everyone was interesting.

There is a humorous episode of the Simpsons that makes fun of all the bickering at the senate and the political aspects where an AT-AT looking being breaks through the wall and then is told to take his turn and he puts on his spectacles blah blah blah, but I think it summed up some of the points of why this movie wasn't great as a film.

I wish they'd hurry up and get some more new waves of these out in stores soon. With the line ending I'm sure no stores will have a spot for them post Christmas and nothing is more annoying than hunting down the last few things as a line dies. And these are so hit and miss anyways.

Picked up a Legends Chewie (sandstorm version) so now my correct VOTC version can make fun of the sandstorm version.

Other Toy Lines / Re: 2009: What Are You Collecting?
« on: August 25, 2009, 01:46 PM »
I was into a lot of different movies/tv shows/etc. when I was a kid that now have toy lines again and it is fun to take a look at them. But nothing else was ever nearly as important to me when I was a kid as Star Wars and so knowing how much space and money any other line would take makes it easy to say no for me, whereas I'd probably roll over and die if I didn't have the SW stuff anymore.
