The Vintage Collection / Re: 2012 "Vintage" Collection Wave 13
« on: January 29, 2011, 08:38 AM »
Who is Nom Anor ???

An excellent EU character. If you hate EU then you won't care, but I don't hate EU and loved his character.

I don't hate EU, I just don't bother following it much at all.  I do think it can be a pretty dicey proposition for a Hasbro toy release though (yes, even moreso than a Willrow Hood type of release) simply because I think a lot of fans are out there like me that don't have a clue or follow EU at all.  I readily acknowledge there are a lot of hardcore and dedicated EU fans but I think they'd be a subset of what Hasbro views as collectors and we all know how much they aim their stuff at collectors.  So I see it as a subset of a subset and that second subset gets some love, but not as much as the kiddos.  

I agree that Hasbro would lose big if they did this a lot. But how often do we get an acutal EU fig? Using the definition that CW isn't EU and especially OT isn't EU. So every once in a while isn't gonna kill anyone. I just think some of the outrage that people have is humerous. I have to poke a little jab in at them. Let me have my figure and then I'll wait a while for the next one to come.

I love a great upgrade to Han or Luke, but I also like to add a new character to the collection here and there

Yeah, I loved that he was "playing both sides" but really just in it for himself. I did like the Vong (I don't watch Star Trek since apparently they were stolen from that which I'm told every time I say I like the Vong) and Nom was my favorite Vong.

I am so happy they are releasing such a cool character like Nom Anor. Thank you Hasbro

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: 'The Hobbit' movie

I don't disagree with a non Christian movie doing better, but Lewis was a Christian author so of course he wanted that message out there. Tolkien wasn't. I love LOTR. Like Narnia. But I'm all for a Christian author writing a Christian story.

I'm gonna get yelled at for off topic soon.

The latest Narnia movie tanked big time.

Maybe people over the age of 13 realized this was just a thinly veiled Christian parable and churchy God stuff is not nearly as cool or interesting as actual sword and sorcery/fantasy stuff?

Any religiousy type junk like that can be the kiss of death for the fanboy set.

C.S. Lewis never meant for them to be thinly veiled. The first two were Christian parables (as all the Narnia books are) and did just fine despite being "religiousy type junk" as you so eloquently stated.

Did anyone else hear Welker's "foot" interview? That was ingenious.

I still think you need to put up great career numbers AND be one of the elite at your position for multiple years.

So Alomar yes

Bert no.

Individual Figure PT: Should not be on "Vintage Cards"

Amen.

Dear Hasbro:

Please continue to make PT items on Vintage cards that have never been on Vintage cards before. If you get access to a time machine and can actually go back to the 70s and 80s then please don't add PT stuff to those.

Sincerely,
Me

Twins' lose Crain and Guerrier (as expected). Not very confident about our pitching this upcoming season.

Some of the Vikings are worried the cold hard TCF Bank field may hurt them.

GROW A SET!!!!!!

Hasbro puts out Battle Packs all the time with crap figures in them... at least these are good figures.  And they're a limited release and a fair price per figure.  Plus a great novelty item.


Great take on this!!!!!!!!

What I've learned this season is the Vikings need to find a rapist or a dog murderer for a QB and then they should be good to go. Sexual harassment just isn't enough. Go Vikes!!!!!!

Doesn't matter. We just let go of a WR who took a cop for a ride on the hood of his car.

As for Vick, he did his time for his crime. Forgive and forget.

Forget? NEVER. I don't care what he does on the field.

Forgive? I'm trying my hardest. I want to see in his mind and know he is really sorry for what he did and realizes how horrible it was. I know I can't so I'm trying to forgive on faith.

Has the DPCI number for this item shown up yet?

I'm going to quote this just in case someone knows and missed your original post. I'd love to know it too.
