I thought we were getting an ultra-articulated Clone Trooper figure?   ???

Saga '02-'04 / Re: New Hoth 4-pack!
« on: September 16, 2003, 02:16 PM »
I found the Hoth set yesterday and picked it up.  My Tauntaun came with a broken horn (Luke's Tauntaun).  I was a little disappointed with the split-belly feature, being that the plastic is kinda hard and closes up to its original position right away.  It's hard to fit a figure in the belly, let alone the delicate guts.  The Leia fig sucks, but the others are alright (especially the droid).  It's definitely the best set out of the three (versus Imperial Forces & Bounty Hunters).    

Saga '02-'04 / Screen Scenes: first wave vs. the second wave
« on: September 12, 2003, 10:47 AM »
I spotted the second wave of screen scenes last night at Target.  I picked up the second Geonosian War Chamber set (my table is complete, YAY) but passed on the Jedi Council set (again).  I like the second Geo set much more than the first since all three figs included in the 2nd set are top notch (IMO).  The sculpts are great, and the Passel Argente fig kicks major booty.  The first set was somewhat of a letdown since Poggle was the only "great" looking fig.  In regards to the second Jedi Council set, I like the first set better.  The holes under Yaddle's feet look absolutely horrible and Yarael Poof could've been much better.  Anyway, which wave do you like better?

Damn, based on the title, I thought you were in Texas and passed the Crawford Ranch.  Silly me.   ;D

Here's hoping for the best.  Bale is a magnificent actor, but I just hope that the Batman franchise takes a turn in the right direction.  I don't know, I was always fond of Michael Keaton as Batman.

Yes, happy belated birthday Carrie.

Stevie Ray Vaughan should've been in the top 3.    

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Gas Prices

Yes, I blame it on the monopolistic business practices of huge corporations.  I mean, is there really anyone out there to compete with Exxon/Mobil or Chevron/Texaco?  The current national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $1.75, an all-time high.  Unfortunately the way the system is set up, we're at the mercy of huge corporations and special interests.  The same holds true for huge pharmaceutical companies and utility companies.  They control us.  I guess it's nice to have at least one foot in the door of the nation's highest office. :)

Saga '02-'04 / Re: AOTC Preview Clone Trooper

I have two preview Clone Trooper figs and that's good enough for me.  The preview CT's static pose didn't leave much room for versatility (which is precisely why I only bought two).

No one will ever be able to top Gene Wilder's performance as Willy Wonka...ever.  


Given the incipiency of Lobot's Dup, consider these vintage cards part of your collection Virex.  I'll send them out ASAP.  They are an integral part of any Lobot collection.  If I come across any other Lobot related items (i.e. Lobot bathrobe, Lobot boxer shorts, Lobot toothbrush, Lobot pencil, etc.), I'll be sure to let you know.

(In fact, I love that headset so much, that I've begun the preliminary sketches for making my own custom one.  I just shaved my head yesterday, to get the fitting down just right, and hopefully, I'll be able to start this bad boy here pretty soon.  I'll post pics of the work-in-progress, okay?)

I can't wait!  I love your virtual shrine to Lobot.  It's great and I'm glad that you shared it with everyone.  BTW, do you know if it's the world's largest Lobot collection?  At any rate, if it's not, it's certainly the best.  Praise Lobot!  

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Do Any of Your Figures Get "Replaced"?
« on: August 21, 2003, 10:01 PM »
I've "upgraded" several of my figs, but I've kept most of their POTF2 counterparts.  The only POTF2 figs I got rid of were the first few "steroid" waves.  Of course, at the rate Hasbro is going in terms of resculpts, you could find yourself "upgrading" figs of Chewie, Maul, and R2 practically every other month.  :)
