I did the Midnight thing for Episode I. It was fun, and I managed to find the three figures I wanted before any others- Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, and Darth Maul.
For Episode II, I could have gone to Wal-Mart to pick up stuff, but I waited and made the rounds the next morning. I found Anakin HD, Yoda, and a red Clone Trooper, but I didn't find Count Dooku until a few weeks later. Great times, man. I might hit a Wal-Mart at midnight for Episode III, but I've got some time to think about that.
I was thinking about picking up this line. Maybe Art Asylum will pick it up and actually get the figures out to people. I, for one, have never even seen one of these, except for pictures on ebay. But I kind of doubt it, because the show isn't having any new episodes made and it isn't exactly up to Star Trek's popularity.
That happened to my first car, a VW Jetta. I was just standing there, talking my someone, and I heard this loud 'pop' and the glass just busted. It stayed in place for a few seconds and then it all fell inside the car. Nothing hit it, it just blew up. I think aliens were involved.
I may be alone in this, but I can't wait to see the final movie in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. In fact, I've already got December 17th off of work so I can stand in line and await cinematic bliss. I didn't even do this for 'The Phantom Menace' or 'Attack of the Clones' or the previous two LOTR flicks, for that matter.
Anybody patiently or not-so-patiently awaiting this movie?
I want to get there after the new year, but it may be even longer. God knows I need to get out of here, but I don't want it to be a mistake. I'll let you know when I get ready to go, Matt. I may need some help finding my way around. Thanks for the encouragement, Darby. We do seem to have a bit in common, now that you mention it.
I'll be working, squirreling away cash for my big move to LA to attend the New York Film Academy's satellite at Universal Studios. Until that time, I'm thinning the collection so I can keep it at my parent's house, writing more and hopefully better stuff, and finally starting my band that I've decided to name Chew Electric Death, Snarling Cur! I've finally gotten rid of the nagging pain in my fret hand and learned some songs in the process. Now, to find like-minded goofballs and conquer the world! Of course, provided there isn't another band out the named like mine. ...you will know us as CEDSC! in case the name was too long.
I love the X-books. I never bothered to read DC comics, because a guy with awesome powers, a square jawline, a beautiful love interest, and a killer bod is something I can't relate to. Neither could I relate to a millionaire who dresses in tights.
I could relate to Marvel's angsty characters because my life has been a living hell since age 10, much like many of Marvel's characters. Misery loves company. I'm sure Batman and Superman have their own problems, but their lives aren't totally in the s***ter like Wolverine's.
