Jocasta's Reading Room / Kid's books
« on: November 13, 2005, 07:04 PM »
I usually get my younger cousins a little something for Christmas every year, and I wanted to get them something besides action figures this year.

I thought about the children's books, and have no idea where to start. Are there some decent currently-available books that have the story of ROTS? I know there are some for the OT, and I'm going to get those for them.

Watto's Junk Yard / The Scam of Quixtar
« on: September 27, 2005, 11:45 PM »
Just a little heads-up to my buds here at JD. I'd hate to see anyone here get hosed by this scam.

Link to a really long post from my blog.

I'm sure more than one of you has been contacted by one of these people and hopefully, you've turned them down.
This thing simply doesn't work, except for a certain few.

Don't believe the hype.

Modern Classifieds / Toy Biz stuff to sell
« on: September 19, 2005, 10:41 PM »
Lord of the Rings:
Trilogy Gil-Galad
The Two Towers Trilogy wave 5:
Battle Action Aragorn
Balrog Battle Gandalf
Possessed King Theoden
Battle Cry Uruk-Hai

I paid $40 for the set after shipping, and I'd like to sell them as a set. Will sell for a reasonable offer.

Marvel Legends/Spider-Man Classics:
Bullseye variant
Phoenix
Mysterio

All items are mint on fair-to-beautiful cards or clamshells. Will trade all items for a Target exclusive TIE Fighter.

Thanks,
Ben

Edit- Mysterio sold, Gil-Galad added.  :)

Star Wars Action Figures / Ben's custom figures
« on: August 9, 2005, 07:40 PM »
I came across a grab bag of vintage capes and weapons a my local comic shop for $7. I mainly bought it for a Jabba pipe and bowl, and some Ewok stuff, but then I was left with these extra capes. So I stuck them on my Clones.

And yes, this is pretty much the extent of my customizing skills.

That jerk Bacara really doesn't like new Joes.

Too funny. :) I can never get enough engrish.

Watto's Junk Yard / Explosions rock London.
« on: July 7, 2005, 06:25 AM »
Oh ****.

I'm thinking the worst, myself. A day after the announcement of the Olympics in London? In protest of the G8 summit? Hopefully, I'm just being paranoid.

Vintage Kenner / Storing vintage figures
« on: June 5, 2005, 04:24 PM »
I bought those C-3PO and Vader carrying cases that were exclusive to Wal-Mart recently and have decided to store my vintage figures in them.

My question is, is that good for the vintage figures long-term? I just don't want to end up with discolored figures later on since I have put a lot of cash into updating my vintage collection.

Thanks and other love.

Watto's Junk Yard / The Minibosses
« on: May 24, 2005, 06:03 PM »
No, it's not a Springsteen cover band composed of midgets, but rather a rock band playing covers of music from old NES games.

Download Mega Man 2. It's awesome.

There's some video here of them playing music from Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! and Rygar.

and believe it or not, I'm happy.

Maybe it's just the shock, but I think it's the best day of my life.

I was going to quit soon anyway, this just means I can collect unemployment.  :)

Unfortunately, it pretty much means the end of my collecting days, at least until I get a new job.

I'm so glad to be out of there. I hated that job with a passion, and this will be the thing that kicks me in the ass and brings much-needed change to my life.

I know I promised to buy things from jadesfire, Famine, and other people, and I apologize, but I'll not be able to buy these things. And Morgbug- I won't be able to buy those 12" figures you asked me about.  :(

Thanks for letting me vent.

The Prequel Trilogy / ROTS news article thread
« on: April 23, 2005, 04:01 AM »
I haven't seen one of these yet, and I figured it would be a good place to show everyone the press this flick is getting. 

I'll start with this one from Yahoo:

Other Toy Lines / Sin City
« on: April 17, 2005, 03:54 AM »
Anybody else buying these?

Over the last three days, I've acquired a set of them. I opted for the color versions, since the b&w ones looked a little funny, plus they wouldn't jibe too well with everything else in my collection.

I got the hair-down version of Nancy, because I haven't located the wind-blown-hair version in color yet.
I also bought the smiling Yellow Bastard, since he looked more evil.

Plus, there's a Wizard exclusive of Marv that doesn't have bandages on his face. He comes in color only. I'd order one, but I've had nothing but bad experiences with Wizard/Toyfare exclusives. So bad, in fact, I've never received any that I've ordered.

Wizard linky.

I'll probably just go ahead and order it and see what happens.

Revenge of the Sith / RotS Figure Impressions?
« on: April 2, 2005, 03:24 AM »
What do you think of the figures you bought?

So far I've only opened Obi-Wan, Anakin, Padme, and Grievous, and I'm actually having a blast with these action features I so professed to hate.

I think that by making the features activated by squeezing legs makes these far more enjoyable.

Anyway, I gotta open the rest of my stuff.

Thoughts?

Watto's Junk Yard / Child prodigy kills himself
« on: March 19, 2005, 07:39 PM »
Damn.

14 years old. And he blows his own head off.

Say what you will about an IQ of 178, but smart people don't die with guns in their mouths.

Maybe the fact that he was a prodigy is what made him do it. Maybe he was lonely and isolated, since it looks like he never stayed around the same classmates for very long. He probably just couldn't be a kid.
