(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!

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.  :)

The best of 2003:
- R4-I9
- R5-D2
- Wat Tambor
- Poggle The Lesser (from the screen scene)
- Carkoon Fett (especially once you replace the missile on his jetpack)
- Anakin Secret Ceremony (despite the fact that he has a skinny arm & robot hand)
- Hoth Han (with his mask on)
- Throne Room Jedi Luke (yes, the head looks kinda bad, but the statuesque pose works for the fig)
- Tusken Raider
- Darth Tyranus Geonosian Escape

The duds of 2003:
- Flying "Happy Meal" R2
- Throne Room Vader
- Treadmill Padme
- Skewered Mace

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What do you buy at the Movie Snack Counter?
« on: August 15, 2003, 05:34 PM »
I've learned to sneak a complete dinner with me to the movies, which consists of a T-bone, baked potato, dinner roll, and dessert (one Snickers bar).  I mean, a whole 1.5 - 2 hours of not eating or snacking is ridiculous.

Does anyone know when these will be available (release date)?  They look great.  I can't wait to complete my Geo War Table with the second set.  :)  I'll probably pass on the Jedi Council set (again).

I keep cardbacks, inserts, ship boxes, playset boxes, and 12" boxes.  Much like OCB, I enjoy looking through various cardbacks (whenever the mood strikes).

Quality over quantity any day, in my books!  Ranks right up there with being friendly and civil, and getting to actuallly know your collecting comrades here!  

I agree Matt.  However, if conversations are limited to a "non-politcal" nature, how can you really get to know someone?  I mean, it's nice to know what someone's favorite color is, or which movie they really like, etc., but to really know someone, you will eventually have to touch on "political" subjects at some point.  Personally, I prefer to make "friends" with someone based on moral principles rather than one based on which figures we really like.  ;)  Don't worry, as long as I'm here, I'll "play nice," but I just thought I'd make a point.  

Saga '02-'04 / Re: San Hill

San Hill is a tad bit off but I can't put my finger on exactly why, still a great figure along with Poggle who was at the top of my me wantee list forever.

It's the likeness.  Hasbro did a poor job with San Hill's face.  Oh well...

And yeah, Dooku is pretty lame, especially with that huge hand of his.  I still like the set, but I have a feeling that I'm going to like the second Geonosian War Chamber set a lot more.    

what would it be?

Anyone pick up anything today?

I picked up The Last American Virgin for $9.99 at Circuit City yesterday.  I originally went to Best Buy around noon, they were sold out!  The guy checked in the computer and told me that ALL of the Best Buy locations were sold out (which is why I ended up going to Circuit City).  It's a great, classic 80's flick.
