I really like the looks of the new figures we have been shown too.  I was also over at GH looking at their coverage so far, and things look pretty good.  However, it was kind of disappointing to only see a handful of new things from the "Saga" line.  Clone Wars doesn't look too bad, I'm looking forward to seeing what the cartoon is like too.  Overall these figures (Bail, Padme, Dignitary, Sketchtrooper), all look great, and I will add all to my collection (if I can find them).

Announcements / Re: Other Toy Lines and You...New Forum Section?

This is a great idea OCB.  I know I sometimes feel bad posting all these questions in Watto's about other toylines (Marvel Legends, MOTU, Simpsons, etc.).  Also, like you said, it seems like many of us are interested in other lines, especially with the Star Wars drought.  I know I would visit the new forum, as well as Watto's for other general discussion. :)  Plus, we might be having more posting going on with new pictures from different toy lines coming up at Comic Con this week/weekend. :)

Just saw news at ESPN.com that the Miami Heat have offered Elton Brand a 6 year, 82 million dollar deal.  Now we'll have to see if Sterling and the Clips will match....they're going to have a whole different team next year...losing all of their talent.  Oh well, they probably wouldn't have ever put it together anyways :).

Here's the link to the story:

One other question about this line (sorry).  Is this a difficult line to collect overall?  As far as finding figures, or maybe there being too many releases or too expensive to keep up?  I think I will only collect the ones I like if I decide to start buying them...plus, even if I were to be a "completist", it would only be with the regular release characters, not the exclusives or "smash blade, super armor, etc" He-Mans and Skeletors.  And most likely, no vehicles or playsets either.  Have there been certain figures that have been a problem to find?  I do realize it will probably be a little more difficult for me if I decide to do this, since I am coming into the game later on.  Thanks again for all the advice and info everyone.  I hope people continue to discuss the line here, when there is anything new popping up :).

Thanks OCB!  To ebay I go! :)  Thanks for the links to SCS as well, I've been there a few times...really a well done site, especially if you want to learn more about any of the figures that have been released.

I had a question for you Simpsons collectors.  I have never collected this line (although it looks great), but have always wanted to pick up a few here and there.  One that I want the most is a Ralph Wiggum...and I was curious what a decent price was for this figure.  Should I just look through the ebay auctions, or is now a bad time to go after this figure?  Also, what is the best (and hopefully not overpriced) version of Homer to get.  Those are my two favorite characters, and I thought about trying to pick them up to have them on my desk.  Thanks for any advice!

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Comic Con!
« on: July 14, 2003, 04:11 PM »
I really hope that we will be able to see some new stuff as well, maybe some figures that haven't even been announced.  I'm sure we will see things such as the other two screen scenes, and the concept stormtrooper, since images have already leaked relating to those pieces.  I know they "mentioned" a 2004 preview, so hopefully we will get some more confirmations or even some early protos/pics of some of the goodies for next year.  I just hope we don't only see more pictures  of the figures shown at the Hasbro show in March...some of those figures are great, but I think we're all ready to see something new too....plus, many collectors need something to bump up their spirits on the Star Wars line.  Hasbro may start losing customers otherwise.

I was just curious....a question for you experts out there.  I was looking over some of the pics from Toy Fair earlier this year, and I wasn't sure exactly what this figure was supposed to be?

It looks somewhat like a skeleton or something, you'll have to forgive me, I haven't seen all of the episodes of the new Masters show :).  Anyone have an idea?

***Edit:  Nevermind, after looking through the rest of the pictures, it looks like it is part of the playset that is pictured next to it.  You can view the rest of the pictures here

if you want to, there is also Roboto and Zodac preview pics here.  Although it is old news, I thought I'd post it here just in case there are other new collectors that haven't seen it.

« on: July 14, 2003, 10:42 AM »
Oh yeah, seeing that post also reminded me that I occasionally watch the Looney Tunes when they happen to be on....that was always one of my favorites, and I watched it as a child, through high school and college, and some times now even.  I think many of those cartoons have stood the test of time well.  I also catch Spongebob Squarepants on occasion, but it has been awhile...its actually funnier than I thought :).

I agree, although I did see a few kids in the Star Wars aisle last year, and once in awhile this year, its been mostly collectors.  I'm really not a fan of the action features, and I am glad they are leaving...and I'm not usually a big fan of extreme poses either, although it sort of works for some figures.  This just hasn't been a great year for Star Wars, with people having troubles finding so many figures.  Some of the figures have still been great, but just a big pain to find and obtain.  I know I probably wouldn't have started collecting or looking at collecting other lines if I could find more new SW product on the shelves...but you get to the point where you want to collect something you can actually get :).  Of course, I'll always be a Star Wars fan first, I just hope they are able to get some of these problems fixed somewhat...and get everyone excited about the line again, more like they were during POTJ.  Maybe the rest of this year and 2004 will bring that about.

« on: July 14, 2003, 09:39 AM »
I haven't really had a favorite NFL team for awhile now, and have been trying to pick a team to follow.  When I was  younger, I was all about the Raiders (in the Bo Jackson/Marcus Allen/Willie Gault time)...but haven't followed them as closely anymore.  I need to find a new team to follow :).

Watto's Junk Yard / Cartoon Watchers?
« on: July 14, 2003, 09:37 AM »
I was just thinking this weekend, and was curious if there are many cartoon watchers out there?  My wife sometimes gives me a hard time because I watch them from time to time (although she will watch with me)...but I guess I just enjoy them.  Currently, I watch X-Men Evolutions, the 90s X-men series that is on ABC Family, occasionally the Spiderman cartoon on ABC Family, Masters of the Universe (although I haven't seen it for awhile), and I also caught the new MTV Spiderman last Friday (not too bad).  I also used to watch Justice League somewhat regularly, but I haven't seen that for a long time either.  I also see there is a new "Teen Titans" series coming out (this week I think?)...might watch it to see what it is like.  I'm also looking forward to the "Clone Wars" cartoon coming up, even if its only in 3 minute episodes.  I guess I also regularly watch the Simpsons, Futurama, and Family Guy, although I don't really count those as "cartoons" more like comedy shows to me :).

Thanks for the replies everyone, I'm really on the fence whether or not to collect these, I've heard nothing but positive things about them though.  Just not sure if the wallet can handle it or not.  Anyone have pictures of their collection they'd like to share, or which figures are their absolute favorites...and why?

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends
« on: July 11, 2003, 11:23 PM »
I was thinking of either of those too Morgbug, specifically the Series I Spidey classics one (with the big red spidey disc).  I was just looking at some pics of that one at offthecard.com the other day, it looks pretty nice.  Not sure if its still around here or not, I'll have to take a look :).  Thanks!
