Other Toy Lines / Thundercats, Hoooo!!
« on: September 23, 2003, 03:42 PM »
At least that is what I remember the battle cry being :).  This was another toy/cartoon from the 80s that came up when my friend and I were talking about our childhoods the other day.  Did any of you have these figures as a kid (or even now)?  For some reason, I only had/have Panthro, who was my favorite...not sure why I didn't have more, I remember watching this show all the time (as well as another show called Silverhawks)...maybe it was just bad timing.  Anyways, I remember Cartoon Network used to show this show once in awhile when I was still in college...wouldn't mind seeing it make a comeback ala MOTU.  Anyways, I was just curious if anyone else remembers/liked this toy line/cartoon...and thought we could discuss it here.  I wouldn't mind seeing the toyline make a comeback in the Four Horseman style, although I don't know if I could afford buying it...it would still be cool to see :).

Other Toy Lines / Does Anyone Remember "Gobots"?
« on: September 23, 2003, 03:13 PM »
Although I know they were pretty much a ripoff of Transformers, a friend of mine and I were talking about toys we had when we were growing up, and the Go-Bots came up in conversation.  Although I had Transformers too, I do remember having quite a few Go-Bots (probably because they were cheaper for my parents to get me for presents).  I even remember having some sort of a command center that many of them fit in.  It just got my nostalgia going and wondering if anyone of you had (or have) these.  They were a lot of fun for my friends and I back in the day.  I remember "Turbo" being my favorite.  Here is a site I came across while looking some information up (I'm sure there are some better ones too).  Just curious if any of you had/have these:

I'm having a hard time forgetting about this line as well.  I have kind of been trying to since many others were quitting, I don't have a lot of extra spending money right now, and my wife isn't too crazy about me picking up another collection besides Star Wars.  I told myself I was only going to get Roboto (and maybe Skeletor) and not worry about the others, but when I see some of the other figures online, take a look at my (or others') vintage figures, or happen to catch the show, I sort of want to look into them again.  For now, I'll be happy with a Roboto though...he was my all-time fave :).  Nice collection by the way OCB.

I just got my notification as well, expected delivery by Thursday.  I'm really looking forward to seeing these...but just like Mikey D...I have to find somewhere to put them.  I'll make room if I have to :).

Saga '02-'04 / First Look at Jabba at GH
« on: September 20, 2003, 05:59 PM »
Galactic Hunter has posted the first picture (a fairly blurry one) of the upcoming Jabba the Hutt.  Kind of hard to tell exactly what it looks like from the picture, but we shouldn't have to wait too much longer to see it in the next issue of Insider.  Anyways, what do you guys think?

I agree, I'm not sure how much of this line I will be able to collect ($ and room), but Roboto was always my favorite character, and if anyone has one they don't want, I'll take one too :).  Its a shame this line is handled the way it is, doesn't seem like it has a whole lot of life left in it.

Great topic, the original NES was a great system.  I actually have my old one hooked up in our spare bedroom as well.  A lot of great memories with that system.  It might have been the fact that we were kids, but even with all of the graphical advances, etc. of the new systems, I almost think my friends and I had the most "fun" with the old NES.  Hours upon hours of Tecmo Bowl, I can tell you that for sure.  I still have fun playing that game.  Don't get me wrong, the new games are pretty spiffy too, and we never had anything like Rogue Leader on that old system either ;).  Anyways, the NES was and still is a great system to just have fun with I think.  A lot of great games like the ones you mentioned....I also remember Castlevania, Mega Man, Kid Icarus, Mario, and of course Star Wars.

12" Figures / Re: Your 12" Figure Collection .
« on: September 19, 2003, 03:35 PM »
My 12" collection is pretty scarce, but I don't have the room for it anyways.  All I have is Stormtrooper Luke, Stormtrooper Han, Endor Han, and Dagobah Luke w/Yoda.  I also have the new 12" Yoda (or 6" I guess), preordered through Kebco.  There are a lot of great figures in this line, but I've pretty much limited myself to 3 3/4" for now.  Nice collections everyone though!

The Original Trilogy / Re: Trilogy out on dvd 2004?
« on: September 19, 2003, 02:25 PM »
I really hope (like all of you), that this ends up being true.  I can't wait for the OT to finally be released on DVD.  I have the same complaints as you about the special editions as well.  It would be great if extras like "From Star Wars to Jedi" were included in the set, I loved watching that when I was a kid.  It used to be on TV around here from time to time.  I think it would be neat to see the old trailers and/or some deleted scenes as well...but who knows what we will end up getting.

TV-9D9 / Re: Download Clone Wars commercial
« on: September 19, 2003, 02:18 PM »
I agree, I wouldn't mind seeing some sort of Star Wars cartoon after the movies are over.  Just a nice way for some of us to get our "fix" without new movies, and maybe without messing up any continuity either.  I remember in one of my Insider magazines, one of the main guys involved with the Clone Wars cartoon (name escapes me right now), said he would love to do a Han and Chewie cartoon when the Clone Wars stuff is done with.  Anything would be pretty cool, I do hope they release these on DVD as well.

Collections / Re: dustrho's collection
« on: September 19, 2003, 02:13 PM »
dustrho...great collection pics.  I had a question for you, do you happen to know where you got those white shelving pieces that much of your collection is displayed on?  I noticed them on the pictures at your site, and I really need to do something different with my collection (need more room, a long time ago)..and was thinking of something like this.  Are you happy with it, and is it somewhat affordable?

Other Toy Lines / Re: Lord of the Rings: Armies of Middle Earth
« on: September 19, 2003, 12:41 PM »
I've really been having trouble deciding which line to collect, Toy Biz, or Armies of Middle Earth.  Since I don't have any LOTR collectibles so far, I'm starting from scratch and could go either way.  I have always wanted a few TB figures, but the AOME are appealing due to a space issue with my collections, and being able to get three figures for about the same price as one 6" figure.  I'm not sure what to do, but both lines are looking great lately...and easy to find thanks to KBtoys.com.  Do any of you prefer one line over the other?
