Saga '02-'04 / Re: Your Best of 2003
« on: December 12, 2003, 08:44 AM »
If I had to pick the best figures of 2003 to me: (in no particular order)

1.  Saga Imperial Officer Both Head sculpts
2.  Rebel Fleet Trooper
3.  Hoth Han (in spite of his terrible stance)
4.  Mynock Hunt Chewie
5.  AT-ST Driver from 4 Pack

Saga '02-'04 / Re: RED LEADER COMING TO TOY'R Us

The possibility exists for a decent Pilot figure.  They have in their factories, the Wedge with Removable helmet and the new Gold Leader.

I am just hoping it is not like the Y-Wing Pilot we got with it.  

I'd take his astromech too.  Very cool possibilities.

But I think somebody else also pondered the idea that it MIGHT be a Rebel Technician...maybe that one from the cancelled sets (like the DS Trooper, Scout Trooper, Hoth Abomination, Battle Droid sets, I can't remember what they were called.)

Here is the question at the price are people going to buy it or are they going to wait for the clearance like in the past?  I am going to snag 2 in the beginning and hopefully have enough $ laying around to buy another at each price drop.

EV.1 GalleryFurniture Playing Before New Years Eve, but at least after Christmas Day Houston Bowl!!!!

I am not a big BCS supporter myself, I would like a playoff, but the main problem with that is, that Texas Tech would never get a bowl game then.  So I am torn.  I want a definative National Champion in College Football, but I don't want to sacrifice any possible Bowl Money. Not that I get any of it.

But it you did a tournament like in Basketball, you would end up needing to have just 10 game regular seasons or starting the season in Early August and  I think it starts too early already. (Of course I don't feel that way in July, when I am jonesing for Football)

Wow, well that will either dispel one rumor or prove another...

Unfortunately for that player you have to REALLY be looking.

I don't drink it normally, but if we are somewhere that will amuse me and put about 90% Half and Half with sugar and about 10% coffee then I'll drink it.

It shocks people because my dad is known for being a coffee ZEALOT.   It is amazing.

Of course, if our 2 year old daughter has a rough night and it is my turn to get up early with her, I'll down a few cups.

The last cup of coffee I had was at Starbucks, it is Vanilla Latte with 8 pumps of Vanilla (cream and sugar too of course).

I usually just wake up, grab a coke and head into the day.

Go to and listen on the net, they'll let you know exactly how the rest of us Cowboy fans are feeling about certain players and positions.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Rebel Uniforms
« on: December 1, 2003, 08:59 AM »
Ok rather than start a new topic, I'll just add a second question...

On the Xwing uniform (and Y Wing Uniform in ANH), were the boots they are wearing more of a "Jack Boot" or more like a riding boot.  In all the publicity stills and stuff that you see of Luke in his Xwing gear, he is wearing the Riding Style boot, like Han Solo Wears the whole trilogy.

Anybody seen any other pics/sources of pilots that aren't Luke(since he may be the exception and not the rule)

They only thing that makes the Cowboy loss tolerable is the fact that Brett Fahrve lost today too.

Oh well.  you can't win em all.  I am proud that in a losing effort we were able to put points on the board..since we've laid the goose egg twice this year.  We are a Quarterback and a Runningback away from winning 10 games in a season.

Just think how much better Miami's record would be if Fiedler would have been playing this last few weeks(the whole game).

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: My new love...Chipotle Burritos
« on: November 26, 2003, 09:02 AM »
I have yet to make it to Chipotle, even though they have popped up like crazy around here.  There are just so many local "hole in the wall" Tex Mex and real Mexican food places around here that I never make it.

It would help if they have a drive thru, that how Taco Cabana gets all my business...and whoever said it before is right, TACO BELL?  Surely you jest....

Does Chipotle JUST have Burritos?

« on: November 26, 2003, 08:57 AM »
My parents live about 10 miles from us right now, but in a couple years they will retire to their cabin in the Mountains. (also about 10-11 hours away).

It is great having them so close on Weekends, because they love watching our 2 year old.

That would have been great...and man if my wife thinks she is cold at a Hockey Game now, imagine that!!

OF course if we tried that here, it would be water polo....

By the way, when does Dallas get the All Star game?  I thought it was either this year or next since we got the new Arena.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Thanksgiving Plans?
« on: November 25, 2003, 05:00 PM »
Fried Turkey is Great.  I have yet to do it myself (much to my wifes pleasure), but my Uncle Does one every year since it got "trendy" and it is always evenly cooked and tender throughout, and he used to petrify some poor butterballs back in the Smoker days.

Luckily for me, both sets of MY Grandparents live with 30 minutes drive and this our year to be with my family so I actually get the day off. (not to mention the InLaws don't watch TV on Thanksgiving, some sort of tradition)

Should be fun though, since my brother and his wife are FINALLY getting the divorce they have been fighting about for a year..., but sadly for me his wife is still coming with him, so we may have some Springer Episodes before the Cowboy game. (if they try getting loud or disruptive DURING the game, my 88 year old Guadalcanal Vet Grandfather will throw them out of the house, he loves the Corps and Cowboys)

The other twist this year is that I am on day 16 of the South Beach Turkey=good, everything else=eat while the wife isn't looking....

I wonder if Brenda throws better than Kurt these days?  Man I guess all the Hot wives are married to Hockey Players...

Spiderlegs does have a point, we are not 5-11 or 1-15 so this season is a success for the 'Boys.  I am just scared where we would be with a REAL Quarterback.  Probably 9 or 10 wins...

It looks like whoever ends the season in the NFC with 10 wins will be in the playoffs.  How sad is that.  No dominant teams in the NFC, where have you gone Late 80's early 90's???? I blame Parity, the Salary Cap and Chan Gailey....

Saga '02-'04 / Re: New Luke,R1-G4,R2-D2 Carded Pic
« on: November 25, 2003, 03:37 PM »
I am excited by these for sure.  Jedi Luke is one of those figures that I have wanted a re-do on since the SOTE days.  Until this one, the Vintage was still a superior figure.  I also like the soft cloak.  The Molded Cloaks just never really looked right to me.  I know other people like em, but ever since the POTJ Lando, I've been hoping they'd do more.

I don't know if I'd call R1 boring, I mean, it IS a figure of a character that has not seen plastic yet.  I realize he doesn't do much..but I do plan to get at least 2.

I like the R2-D2 too. I haven't thought about it enough to know if I am disappointed about the lack of colored plastic in the cups, but I would have expected just like you guys did that that would be the case.

Oh well.  Instead of just wanting one figure per wave, like this year, it looks like I can finally buy cases online and not get stuck with a bunch of useless (to me at least) figures.
