The Bullpen / Marvel Legends
« on: June 28, 2003, 01:50 AM »
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.

These bastards used to fill up my answering machine with offers to sell my vinyl siding. Considering I live in an apartment building, it's beyond stupid.
I switched to a cell phone exclusively and haven't had single telemarketer call. I'm still going to sign up, but I'll wait a bit until it isn't being accessed a million times a minute.

A Do Not Spam list would be awesome, and bring this world one step closer to Utopia.

Modern and vintage Star Wars, just about everything but 12"
Vintage RAH GI Joe RAH, pretty much from 82-89
G1 Transformers and PVCs, the only collection I'm equally obsessed with as I am for Star Wars.
Lord of the Rings, loose and carded. Haven't decided on Armies of Middle-earth yet.
Marvel Legends, but only the characters I like or know something about.
Kiss figures, but McF seems to be done with those. Looking forward to Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix figures.

Also, I collect vinyl albums from lots and lots of bands. Something about the album art. It's just too damn small on CD booklets. Especially the UK version of Hendrix' 'Electric Ladyland.' Hubba.

1) Natalie Portman
2) Audrey Tautou
3) Eliza Dushku
4) Sarah Michelle Gellar
5) A girl at work currently rocking my world.

Honorable mention goes to Drea de Matteo, from the Sopranos. She was hosting VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the last 25 Years and she showed off her AC/DC tattoo, and I really liked it. A lot.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Wars toys are OUT!!!

I heard something about a street date for Clone Wars at Target, might anyone know when this is? Are they just waiting for the Christmas reset?

I'm trying to find Yoda and the Younglings now, as well as a bunch of Unleashed figures I foolishly didn't order online, seeing as how not a single store here carries that line anymore.

I want to take a sick day today and not do a damn thing. Too busy at work, gah, I hate it.

I was considering using some vacation time, but I need it for when Return of the King comes out in December.

E.T.
Schindler's List
Saving Private Ryan
(I think I should stop watching tear-jerking Spielberg films)
 And Braveheart, at the end.

Also, Boromir's death in Fellowship of the Ring. Also Gandalf's line "All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you."

I'm not sure if it's real or not, but it's a good idea. Since Freddy vs. Jason is finally getting made, why not this one?

But if it's pre-production, I doubt costumes and sets like those pictured would be ready to go already.

Other Toy Lines / Transformers

I don't know if there's a thread about this or not, but here goes.
Anyone else collect these here? I'm a G1 addict. Anything G1 that Hasbro reissues, I buy, even if I have the Japanese counterpart. I just found the TRU exclusive Prowl, and thirty dollars later it was sitting on a shelf next to the rest of my G1 stuff.

I might post pics of my stuff later. I'm hoping they don't have to be on the 'net as they do when trying to post at RS. ::)

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?
« on: June 20, 2003, 02:00 PM »
I want a bunch of different colors. I'm thinking I'll buy about five sets, regardless of color. I wanted to get a bunch of Droid sets, but those are a little on the ugly side, so I'll just use that money to get more Clones.

I wish Hasbro would do something like this for Stormtroopers. Man, that would be sweet.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Target Has New Items
« on: June 20, 2003, 01:57 PM »
I think my local Target has already received and burned through their allotment of new stuff. Damn. They got in the Padawan case a week ago, but they haven't yet received the stuff with new cardbacks.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: What 2003 SAGA product are you still missing?
« on: June 19, 2003, 01:44 AM »
I'm missing Chewie Mynock Hunt, Yoda/Chian, Ashla/Jempa, Red Battle Droid, and the new Deluxe Obi-Wan and Jango.
I also lack the following Unleashed figures: Mace Windu, Vader Redux, Leia(really want this one), Luke, Sidious, Obi-Wan, and whatever else is coming out on those groovy new cards.

I hope I find all this stuff before the Clone Wars line debuts and takes up the meager space retail stores have for Star Wars.

I'll pick stuff up off the floor, but only if it's a line I collect. I also put figures that are sitting on top of vehicles back on the pegs as well. I'll try to put rarer figures on the front of the pegs or stash 'em for fellow collectors.
