Other Collectibles / Re: Master Replicas Force FX Lightsabers

I have the previous FX sabers and like them. I will be getting the Mace saber as an Christmas Present to myself.

Gentle Giant / Re: Luke as Stormtrooper GG MiniBust

I thought last year with the Clone Pilot there was going to be a limit!?! I think that did not happen and I do not think it will happen this time around.

Hopefully if I can't acquire on at Wizards World (if I get to go this year) someone might be able to get one for me. If not I think that will nail the coffin closed on this line for me. I really wanted the Clone Pilot but I am not paying over $20.00 retail for it. I can live without the Green Clone but Not the Clone Pilot and now the Luke.

I think I have missed this wave several times. I keep running by Lando Skiff, Luke Hoth, ect. I think these figs are in that wave. I hope to find them before too long.

The Hunt Goes On...

Gentle Giant / Luke as Stormtrooper GG MiniBust
« on: May 14, 2004, 08:06 PM »
 >:(  Ok I have missed all the Exclusive Mini Busts except for the Blue Clone. I missed out on the Clone Pilot and the Green Clone. Now GG is making a Luke in Stormtrooper Bust for the Conventions. Only 3,500 of them. I would have thought from last years  fiasco they would make more.

I hope I can attend Wizards World in hopes of getting Luke. I doubt it though. The GG Mini Bust line is making me very mad. It is getting way too hard to collect them. Depending if I can get the Luke will determine if I stay with the line or drop out and sell the ones I have.

What are your thoughts on this really neat Luke Bust?

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Bit Late, but... KOTOR II announced.

I thought KOTOR was great. I am going to be getting the second one when it comes out.

In the first game the Dark Side ending is the best!

The Wookiee Arcade / Battlefront Demo with DVD Trilogy!!!
« on: May 12, 2004, 10:18 PM »
In case you missed it. Go to and click on Battlefront.
The little box says that a playable X-Box demo of the game will be packaged with the Star Wars Trilogy DVD set.

Pretty cool.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: If You Lost Your Collection....
« on: May 7, 2004, 10:17 PM »
I currently have a $50,000.00 Insurance policy on my toy collection.
If I lost my toy collection do to some event I would hang it all up and stop collecting for the most part. To me it would not be worth all the effort to try to replace the entire collection that I have been massing for most of my life. For one I have some one of a kind items, those would be gone forever.

I might collect a few figures or items just to keep my inner child alive but I would not rebuild  to be where I am now with my collection.

I would be upset... very upset and sad.

I would hope that this would never happen to anyone.

THOH is cancelled... I was not too excited of the choice. It does not bug me that it is cancelled.

I am sad that Frogurt Guy, Crazy Cat Woman, and others will never be made.

What is Friends?  ;D

I have never really watched this show. It has a big following.
Good bye Friends.  ;D

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Stupid tech question on burning DVD's
« on: May 6, 2004, 02:20 PM »
I have an external LiteOn DVD Burner. It comes with software but any pre-packaged burner software sucks anyways. If you want to duplicate entire DVD's with everything you must buy DVD X-Copy Gold. It will allow you to copy an entire DVD to one disc at DVD quality.
You can get it here.

I bought it and it is great. It is simple you put in your DVD and a blank disc, then hit the copy button. Within an hour you have a perfect duplication. I highly recomend this software. This particular software will be banned soon due to the copy technology it has. The ball already started rolling on that.
Better get it soon before it is taken off the market. What is nice about it, it will also copy some Computer, PS2, & X-Box Games.

Watto's Junk Yard / I am out of here for about ten days.

To all my friends at Jedi Defender:
Just to let everyone know I will not be posting on the forums for at least the next week up to two weeks.  :(

Today I went to Sports Medicine to get my knee checked out again.
In the bone itself I have an infection that is not going away. The bone has become brittle and has actually cracked near the joint. A small bone fragment is floating around in the joint.

On Friday (4-23-04) they are going to go in a drill out part of the bone to remove the infected area and remove the bone fragment. It will then be filled and repaired. I have already been told that I will be spending at least 24 hours at the hospital for observation of infection. The healing process will be several weeks with physical therapy after.

Well my friends I will see you when I can.

Until then Happy Hunting!

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Are you a "bad" person?
« on: April 18, 2004, 02:27 PM »
As Stormie said.
Much like everything else, I think being a "bad person" is relative to each individual's definition of what "bad" is. I've always tried to follow the Golden Rule -- Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. (or something like that  ) It's tough, but I think I've basically adhered to it my whole far. However, as JediMac confessed, I too have become more and more pessimistic and mistrustful of others...basically as a defense mechanism to what others have done to me. This makes following the Golden Rule all the more difficult. Now, instead of being very outgoing and friendly, I'm more apt to just be quiet and reserved; waiting for others to show friendliness first. This is something I know I have to work on (admitting you have a problem is the first step...).  

It is all true to myself as well.

Now for my results... I do not agree with them. Like many of you I thought I was a better person. According to this test I am one bad person.  :'(
On the good side it is Lucky #7!  :D

Seventh Level of Hell

Guarded by the Minotaur, who snarls in fury, and encircled within the river Phlegethon, filled with boiling blood, is the Seventh Level of Hell. The violent, the assasins, the tyrants, and the war-mongers lament their pitiless mischiefs in the river, while centaurs armed with bows and arrows shoot those who try to escape their punishment. The stench here is overpowering. This level is also home to the wood of the suicides- stunted and gnarled trees with twisting branches and poisoned fruit. At the time of final judgement, their bodies will hang from their branches. In those branches the Harpies, foul birdlike creatures with human faces, make their nests. Beyond the wood is scorching sand where those who committed violence against God and nature are showered with flakes of fire that rain down against their naked bodies. Blasphemers and sodomites writhe in pain, their tongues more loosed to lamentation, and out of their eyes gushes forth their woe. Usurers, who followed neither nature nor art, also share company in the Seventh Level.

As for the other level listings... wow I am a bad person.
Level Who are sent there? Score
Purgatory  Repenting Believers  Very Low
Level 1 - Limbo  Virtuous Non-Believers  High
Level 2  Lustful  High
Level 3  Gluttonous  Moderate
Level 4  Prodigal and Avaricious  Very Low
Level 5  Wrathful and Gloomy  Moderate
Level 6 - The City of Dis  Heretics  High
Level 7  Violent  Very High
Level 8- the Malebolge  Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers  Moderate
Level 9 - Cocytus  Treacherous  Moderate

Raised as a Catholic trying to do well in life, I have always put others before myself which has done some harm to my well being. I am just stubborn when it comes to me. I would rather help out others in life before I take care and help myself.
In my life I have been all the way to the top down to the bottom and back. I have learned from my mistakes to make life better. I have succeeded more times that I thought I could and failed more times than I can remember. It is life. Not too long ago in my life things were not looking good for me and I had a serious self reflection time. I was heading down the wrong path and I was builiding walls up all around me. There were things in my life that I had to come to realize and deal with instead of trying to be something that I was not. I hurt many people who were close to me and for that I have said I am sorry more times than I can remeber. Due to my fall in life I have lost many friends who I know will never forgive me. I have accepted that they are now no longer part of my life. I have torn down the walls that I have built up. It is sad that many of those walls still haunt me from time to time. No one is perfect we all fail from time to time.
I have moved on with my life and have accepted who, what, type of person I am. I hate labels of any kind for a person. We are all human of all types. Though I was raised a Catholic I do not believe that any religion in the world is totally correct. They all have their Pros and Cons. I feel that if you are just good to your fellow person and just live life and be there for others that makes you a good person. The definition of "bad" is what you personally make of it. If the world does not want to accept me for who I am. Then I have learned to say "F-It" and go on with my life. You cannot please everyone.

Wow. Self Reflection... try not to dwell on it to much. It will only make you feel worse than things really are. Everyone here is A GOOD PERSON. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise.

Now Group Hug!  :-*

Well if anyone is going to be joining me in the 7th Level of Hell I have the drinks (the good kind)!  ;)

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Sad to see SAGA end?
« on: April 15, 2004, 09:19 PM »
I am not sad. I look at it as the line is progressing. Thus change to show. To push on into the future. That is a good thing.
I will be sad when Hasbro says this will be the last wave of Star Wars figures.

The last set for the Simpsons and they blew it! The Mananimals are not cool. I was really hoping they would go for the Jack In The Box Homer, Raven Bart, Alien Maggie, Vampire Krusty, Werewolf Flanders, the Frogurt Guy, and a wacky Snowball II that were planned. That would of made a much better set. But I always say be happy with what they put out. They did not have to make it in the first place.
So sad to see this line end...
