I shared this over at RS.

Is this some super realistic action feature (I know it's not) or is this actually breaking down already? Mine can't be the only one to be doing this. Anyone else experiencing this? It definitely felt like oil on my fingers when I rubbed them together.>

I've been looking for a place to tell this story. My Jabba Walmart sat on his throne on my shelf for a few years until we finally installed a legit collection room to keep my massive figure collection away from our baby that was about to be born last winter. I painstakingly moved a few figures at a time a couple rooms over to their new home, but Walmart Jabba was stuck to his throne, and the tip of his tail was touching Max Rebo's piano and the oily secretion from the tail MELTED the part of the piano it was touching!!! I threw that Jabba away before it destroyed anything else. Funny now that a new Jabba is out, people are finally fondling the old one and discovering this. I moved 2,000 Star Wars and Marvel figures a handful at a time, Jabba was the only figure like this. The only other noteworthy destruction was yellowed VOTC scout troopers and stormies, in a room with no light and climate controlled year round.

Also funny, looked at ebay Walmart Jabba selling for $125-250, yeah right!!! It's worth $0. The throne survived ps, no damage there.

I'll take status quo. H2H adds too much luck and dice roll, there's enough of that already in roto with the injury lightning bolts that randomly strike.

The idea of making Captain Plasma poseable is a good idea and might get me back into customizing again. I can totally see dremeling out the armor and putting it on a micro-women figure just like did with Scorch. I need something better than latex balloons for the body glove though.

It's too much work, usually by the time I'm done doing something like that, Hasbro is showing the figure I just made at the next toy fair/comic con. This movie is so huge there must be a **** ton of SA figures coming in some line in the near future.

I'm a Notre Dame fan, and a fan of the Cubs and the Sox (due to my dad), and I'd love to see Samardzija succeed, but he really needs to be more consistent. I was hoping he'd stay with the Cubs, but I'm glad we didn't drop a ton of cash on him.

I'm hoping the Cubs will be improved this year, and at least be fun/interesting to watch. At this point I think playing .500 ball would be considered a success, despite what the talking heads say.

Disagree on Samardzija, Cubs should have kept him or at least signed another starting pitcher as good, in addition to Lester. They will have great offense with Starlin Castro, Bryant, Rizzo and Soler, Soler in particular should not be underestimated, he's a beast. And this is before Adisson Russell and/or Javier Baez come up.

Note the start time please: 8:00 CST.  Gotta get Dressel to sleep half an hour earlier.

Because that's worked so well for you in the past  :-* I slept half the day just for this.  The 3peat is happening.

And we could probably grab a couple of those RS guys if we post in that thread.

There is a 20 team league going at RS that I joined, also Yahoo based, 1 opening left if anyone wants to try a super deep league. Draft Sunday at 1 PM. Grab that last spot.

Well Sentry is a must to display with Ares and Iron Patriot.

KC vs. Baltimore. Just like all the experts predicted at the beginning of the year.

Hard to believe the Tigers and Angels got so thoroughly whipped via sweeps. You cannot predict these best of 5 series.

Even harder to believe this is Baltimore without Manny Machado and Chris Davis.

Just realized our draft was on March 18 this year. Next year I'm expecting the birth of my first child on 3/20. If this interferes with the draft is there anything I can give my wife to put labor on pause? A pressure point to squeeze or something?

Thank you all. And a fine job all around by everybody putting that Dutchman in his place.

It's being billed "The Fappening 2014".
