Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Gambling...

I've only spent about $10 on Powerball tickets, when the jackpot gets to be over $100 million. Never hit a single number.

I don't like card games like blackjack, so I avoid them. And I've heard bad tales about the addictiveness of one-armed bandits, so I stay away from casinos. I waste enough scrib on my hobbies.

Too bad they don't have a list of what markets are getting lucky. I might make a road trip to see these.

Middle Earth / Re: Lord of the Rings Figures

Have faith, Spuffy. I found it at TRU, of all places. If one can find a one-per-case figure there, it will arrive everywhere so all who want one can get one. I haven't opened mine yet, because I'm still basking in the 1-2 punch of a figure and picture of Miranda Otto-ness.

There's no way in hell FOTR and TTT will be played here, so I'm not worried about it.

Thanks, OCB. I watched that preview. ROTK is going to be one insanely awesome flick.

Another thread where I'm just talking to myself.

Anyway, check out this spoilerish shlock, courtesy of TheGD.com:

Looks like Philip deleted all of the Kebco threads over at RS, since it's one of their main sponsors...

Must be why the forums were down earlier today...

I see them as two different movies, so I really don't feel like I'm put over a barrel or anything. Even if both versions came out on the same day, eventually I'd own both of them. But, given a choice, I'd like the EE first.

Joe Defender / Re: G.I. Joe Toys Thread
« on: August 26, 2003, 12:05 AM »
Man, I loved GI Joe. I liked that they were cheaper than MOTU and Transformers, so I could afford them with my measly allowance. My personal favorite figures are the first versions of Wet Suit and Serpentor, both from 1986. That's the year I got heavy into Joe.

I bought the RAHC and the first five waves of the new line, but repaints and terrible shoulder joints on the new figs made me decide to discontinue collecting it. Although I still pick up the ones I find cool, like the Sand Viper and the upcoming Lady Jaye and Pimp Destro.

I have 4. I'd rather see the red one repainted white before buying anymore of these.

I found a five-spot in my jeans last week. They were sitting on my floor for about two weeks. I had to clean house because a girl was coming over, which is something I should do more often.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Ever Walk Out of A Movie?
« on: August 24, 2003, 11:16 PM »
The only film I've ever walked out on was one for one of my film classes - David Lynch's "Lost Highway."  I believe I screamed "This is (expletive)!" and left.  I enjoy a lot of his films, but that was a colossal mess and had no business in a university film class.

Man, I hated film classes. I took a couple at UNI and couldn't believe the pretentious drivel I was forced to sit through. At one point, if I had seen another French film, I was going to rip the videocassette apart. Still can barely sit through 'Amelie'. I do just because Audrey Tautou is in the flick.

I still haven't seen all of Goldmember. I just cannot get past that Sumo shower room scene and not feel the need to toss my cookies.

Other Toy Lines / Re: Why Do You Collect?
« on: August 24, 2003, 02:34 PM »
I collect Star Wars and Transformers mostly out of nostalgia, although as far as TFs go, I didn't have too many of those, so I'm going back and buying what I didn't have then. Nostalgia was the reason I collected GI Joe and MOTU, but those were either driven into the ground (MOTU) or reached a state where I didn't like the way they looked anymore (Joe).

I collect Marvel stuff and Lord of the Rings because the characters in their respective media fascinate me and I like to have figural representations of them.

I found Eowyn at TRU today, no Bilbo. Oh well.
I thought her hair was supposed to be more blonde. Meh. It's still cool.

Edit- I read that TRU.com has a red-boxed Boromir up for pre-order. I didn't check, but does anyone know?
