Saga '02-'04 / Re: New Luke,R1-G4,R2-D2 Carded Pic
« on: November 25, 2003, 10:07 AM »
Well, the drink tray is removable from Artoo, as I hoped, but it looks like the little top-of-the-dome thing may be permanently stuck in the upright position, as I feared.  Hopefully not, but that's what it looks like from the cardback.

Other than that, it looks great--that little thing may keep it from being the perfect Artoo figure ever made.  Oh well--probably an easy enough custom job.

Luke looks great, too, and so does the R1 droid, if not a little boring.

Confession time...I've never seen a single Aliens movie  :(

With that said, what should I do, I've fairly certain I'd enjoy them, so should I look at picking up the full set in December or wait until January and only get whichever one is "best"?

Well, I would probably say that the first two are essential to having a good movie collection.  However, a lot of folks hate the last two just as much as they love the first two.  If I were you, I would wait until January, and buy the first two seperately for the forty bucks or so, as opposed to dropping seventy on the box.  Or, you could rent them (the 1999 discs) all now, watch them, and if you like the last two, you could spring for the box next month.

Me, I've seen the first three (still haven't seen Resurrection yet), but because I'm a total sucker for stuff like it, I'll be picking up the box next month.  I have no doubts that the first two are going to be amazing, and I'm interested to see what they are going to do with Alien3.  

Another option would be to pick up the 1999 discs on Ebay or something on the cheap, because surely people will be dumping their old ones in favor of the new ones.  However, all of the reviews I've read so far are saying that the new discs kick the crap out of the old ones, in terms of, well, everything.

And on another note, I miss you Virex, but not in a gay way.


Well maybe a little bit  :-X

Well, thanks.  I miss you too, but only in a gay way.  Odd, that, since I'm not homosexual.  

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I PMed GNT to see if I could get any inside confirmation on whether in fact he had actually been "unmasked" and apparently....he says you have found a picture of a cousin of his with the same name.

Lemme guess. . .  

Zoman, right?

Yeah, you guys are right.  Lord only knows that I'm nothin' to look at (probably why I walk around in my bear suit all the time), and I sure wouldn't like it if someone was making fun of the way I looked.

It was just an opportunity for a cheap-shot, low-blow and I took it (what else is new?).  I don't believe in editing-out or deleting comments after the fact, so I won't, but I apologize for saying what I did.  

And Gregg, since if you're reading, sorry, buddy.

I love you.

Watch it fellas...Gregg didn't ask for this to be posted and I don't think anyone should be making fun of the way he looks

Sorry, man.   :-\

On an unrelated note, is there any kind of a demand for Pat Benatar lookalikes Down Under?

Is he a girl with a fake beard? Kind of reminds me of Charlie's Angels when they dressed up as guys.

Mystery solved, only to raise more questions...

is GNT really a woman...hmmm...

Man, I'm glad you said this, because I was thinking earlier he looks a little "tranny".

Now, I don't have to say it.  Thanks.

As a new era begins, another one must end:



Goodbye, dear friend. . .

Now Playing: Smashing Pumpkins, Adore

Good album.  Underrated.

And for some strange reason, for a brief period of time yesterday, I had "Heaven" by the awful and terrible Warrant running through my head.  Probably haven't heard that song at all in over ten years or so.  Weird.

I threw a mustard packet at Steven Tyler at an Aerosmith concert in 1993, which glanced off his right facial cheek, if I remember correctly.

Yeah, I'm a dick, but I don't feel too bad about it--the man's been artistically bankrupt for twenty-five years.
