Modern Classifieds / WTB: Deluxe PGM General Veers Mini-bust
« on: January 5, 2014, 03:49 PM »
That says it all... PM me if you happen to have one to sell.  The last one on Rebelscum sold for $200, the last one on eBay for $240 - so that's my target price range.

Just got a shareholder alert.   I wonder what the implications will be, if any...

Since I pretty much finished my vintage star wars set, I've been toying with the idea of assembling a nice set of vintage Indiana Jones figures.  Does anyone know if there's any online authority on that line?  I want to be more knowledgeable about what the line consists of... variations, accessories, and average value before I go diving in.

Wasn't quite sure where to put this but here goes...

I'm looking to help a buddy get one of the Albino Predator figures, and one of the Nintendo Jason Voorhees figures.  It doesn't seem like you can get them online (outside of doing the eBay thing afterwards...).

Is anyone happening to go who might be willing to try to pick one of each up?  I don't know how difficult it is to get NECA exclusives in person, and I don't want to ask anyone to do anything that's a huge pain in the ass.  But if it's as simple as swinging by and picking them up, I'd appreciate the assist.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Brent,

I know you sent out the invites, but we don't seem to have a thread.  I wanted to start one so I'd have a good place to ask if we could move the draft back from Wednesday to Tuesday or Monday.  Marin, Patrick, and I are heading out of town for the holiday weekend on Wednesday and would all have to miss it.

Watto's Junk Yard / "OTHER" (film I worked on) - Got into SXSW
« on: October 28, 2011, 11:00 AM »
So we put together a large team of incredibly skilled filmmakers and artists to shoot and finish our first seriously produced short film here through Vitamin.  We've been submitting to festivals and just launched the Facebook page and website.  So I wanted to share with the class.  Check it out and pass it on!

So, I did something stupid today and got my finger caught in my bike's freewheel while cleaning it.  It (I) crushed the finger pretty good... it's swollen and cut up, but I don't think I broke it or anything.   I'm mentioning this here because the nail is pretty much cracked in half, although largely still attached.  I cut off the little bit that I could but cutting it any more is horribly painful. 

Has anyone around here ever done anything like this?   My understanding is that it will pretty much grow back slowly as the cracked nail grows out... but I'd love to hear more confirmation on this from someone who's done something similar.  Reading fingernail forums and Google is only getting me so far.  I've got it cleaned up, wrapped up, medicated and dry... I'm just trying to figure out if I have to do anything about the nail itself.

I can post a pretty disgusting photo if needed, but I'm assuming no one wants to see it.

If we have a thread for this movie, merge away, if not... go see it now.

I figured I'd toot my own horn for a minute and share these with the class.  We recently launched a new website of our work and included are a pair of spots for Hasbro light sabers.  So, if you're into that sort of thing...

Watto's Junk Yard / Anyone ever filed a patent?
« on: April 7, 2011, 04:27 PM »
I've got a new (maybe) idea for a product that we use every day and I'm trying to file one.  Without talking about the idea... I have no idea what I'm doing and would love any advice anyone could offer up.

Other Toy Lines / Record Breakers: World of Speed
« on: March 28, 2011, 08:44 PM »
I had these race cars when I was a kid... the tracks were customizable and had side walls.  The cars had 6 rollers on them to keep them in the track.  You could take the body of the cars off and swap engines and other parts to make them faster.  

The tracks were about 4 or 5 inches wide and 2 or 3 inches deep.  The cars were maybe 7" x 4" x 2"

Can anyone help me figure out the name of the brand?

By any chance do you any of you know the answer to this question?

My girlfriend is a graduate student in Michigan. She's living here in Chicago though. She received some fellowship money this year and is entering all of her tax stuff into Turbo Tax, and it's apparently telling her that she needs to pay state income tax on this money in Michigan and again in Illinois.

That sounds completely wrong to me but I don't really know this for a fact. I would think that she either earned the money in Michigan and it is not Illinois income or she's a resident of Illinois and should be taxed as residential earnings here.

Does anyone know if this is accurate? I'm trying to save her the few hundred dollars it would cost to hire someone to file her taxes for her since it would cut significantly into the tax savings if it can be changed.

So yeah, I'm looking for free tax advice.

Thanks in advance!
