Other Toy Lines / Re: What Toy Line Should Never Have Been Made?
« on: August 2, 2003, 10:49 PM »
Those overpriced TRU exclusive...things that a company Stan Winston started put out. They're all really cool monsters, but when they're priced at $15 a crack, sheesh. They sit next to the Transformers at my local TRU, and I just wish Star Wars or MOTU had the pegs those forsaken things are sitting on.

Another line that shouldn't have been was Art Asylum's line of Star Trek:Nemesis figures. If you're not going to do the whole crew, don't bother starting, IMO.

This is off the topic of Buffy figures, but it's still Buffy-related.

Thanks for adding the alert to the title. That was my next step after the pics. :)

This pic is probably a spoiler, but if you clicked on a thread with the letters 'ROTK' in its title than you're probably asking for it.

Right now it's Pearl Jam's Given To Fly.  The first time I heard this, I was as low as you can get emotionally. It really picked me up, and I still get a feeling every time I hear it.

There are a few songs I like that are listed here that I'd probably never admit to liking. But, they're good tunes.

Cold beer. Or Dr. Pepper.
A stack of new comics.
Finding new swag for my collection.
Riding my newly fixed Sea-Doo at idiotic speeds and loving every minute of it.
Spending time outside reading or playing with my dog.
Grilling a fat steak. Yeah.

Other Toy Lines / Re: Which is Your Favorite "Other Toy Line"?

Besides Star Wars and LOTR, I collect Hasbro's Transformers G1 Commerative Series. People blather on and on about Takara's stuff being better, but missiles don't really matter that much to me. Besides, that chrome wears off eventually.

I'm really hot and cold on MOTU. Probably due to the length of time that passes between actually finding the figures.

I tried to start on the Buffy line, but after receiving a couple of figures and MAC canceling the line and then putting out exclusives, who knows where that's going. ::)

Man, Clayburn Moore IS a tool. He should just keep sculpting female's asses and leave business decisions to anyone else.

If you're looking for older stuff (funny term, the line's barely a year old) try KB. A local one here still has Jungle Attack He-Man and other pegwarmers. Also try out-of-the-way Wal-Marts, like those found in smaller towns. I've had insane luck there, and they often have figures like Beast Man, Stratos, and Man-At-Arms.

Also, keep checking every other Wal-Mart you can find, because I found MEF and Buzz-Off with Free Video #3 attached to them today, along with rage-inducing He-Man variants. ::)

Stole it from a link at RS. I had a hard time keeping my jaw from hitting the floor after I put it in place. It's quite sad and hopeless in its tone, especially the conversation between Gandalf and Pippin. :(

Eventually, Mattel's going to run out of coffin nails. I think this line's living on borrowed time as it is without crap like this.

I suggest going to .org's forums and taking a look at what's being shipped with Evil-Lyn in the new villain cases. I won't link, because the horrors are too great for eyes so young. :-X

Goodbye, MOTU.
So much potential, so little anything else.

I was dating a girl that had a kid, and I've come to not really like kids all that much. I can certainly see where the term 'rugrat' came from, now.

I love AA's new figures. Unfortunately the second series of Enterpirse figures featured the crew in their EVA outfits and had two really cool aliens to boot. I never have found the aliens, and I really wanted that Andorian. man, they kick ass. (Unfortuantely, I lost track of the show because the local WB screws with the scheduling. We don't get UPN here.) And I'm not pleased that my second fave character, Trip Tucker, was an exclusive to some website.

When the Nemesis line came out, I was hoping for the entire Next Generation crew in their movie uniforms. Didn't happen.

Now I'm just hoping the TOS figures do extremely well. I need me a yellow shirted Kirk, man. Can't wait for AA to get to the Romulans and the Gorn. Maybe a Mugato. Sweet.
