I picked up the red-boxed Fellowship pack at Wal-Mart today for the handsome sum of $25, apparently a 'clearance' price from the regular $29.72. Hm.

It's cool, but I really didn't figure that I have to put it somewhere when I got it home. Damn thing's huge.

I get a medium Coke (damn theaters don't offer Pibb >:( ) and a ridiculously small bag of Reese's Pieces that usually end up thrown at punk kids talking during a movie I paid a lot of money to see.
 Small wonder DVDs and home theaters sell so well.

I have my 5-year coming up next year. It will be a cold day in hell before I actually want to see those people again. So no, I'm not going.

This isn't a midnight sale, but TRU has it for $14.99. YOu have to preorder it and put $5 down, and the day it comes out you pay the remaining $9.99. It's the best price I've seen yet.

Way to go on catching up!

I think I'm only missing the Eopie and some Unleashed figures, but I don't collect everything Hasbro puts out.

My uncle has quite possibly the biggest private party in the state. Every year he does it, and it gets bigger every year. Fun to be had by all. The week before Halloween, he runs a haunted house in the same building as the party.

My siblings and I help with this endeavor, along with his friends. It's a great way to screw away your weekends from August until the end of October.

I'd do away with bigotry, intolerance, and competition. And get rid of crime too.

"This one goes on the gooch!"

Man, that was funny. Where do you get the idea to stick that on your balls anyway?

HMI (Hasbro's Missing Integrity)

Name: Ben
Where he be: Waterloo, IA
Occupation: writer, well-educated slacker, bum, whatever
Age: 22
Status: Single, then not, then single, then not. Single now.
Children: None they can pin on me.
Pet: cat named Peregrin, dog named Jarrett.
Musick: Kiss, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix in any form, and scored film music.

I was introduced to Star Wars by way of Return of the Jedi, that being in theaters in a rerelease in 1984. Loved it, and saw Empire and A New Hope on VHS shortly thereafter. Of course, like any child who saw these movies, I had to have the toys. And, here we are. I collect Star Wars, LOTR, Marvel Legends, G1 Transformers, and occasional McFarlane, Star Trek, GI Joe, MOTU, and Buffy figures. Also collect comics and DVDs. I play the guitar. Sort of.

I keep the moniker around because I like it. Hasbro really doesn't bother me that much any more.

My favorite skit was the one where that dude went to the hardware store and tested one of the empty toilets. What a jackass.
Before they made it to the store, the guy s*** his pants and the cameraman tossed his cookies.

I can't believe these hosers got rich off this stuff. Right place at the right time, I guess.

Damn. Just, damn.

So they're going to be statues then, right? I'd pick up the Schoolmaster.

I think I've found something to sink my former MOTU dollars into.

Is Gonzo only available in that funny suit with the cannon?

I'm also looking for the following figures:
Kermit w/out tux
Crazy Harry
Miss Piggy

Thanks, OCB. Can't wait for that figure.

I bought them at an online store for $10 each a few months after they came out, along with a Commtech Stormtrooper. Never have seen the droids at retail.

These were based on the movie? I thought they were from the book. Stupid me. I didn't look at them because I was going apesh** for new Star Wars stuff.
