Customizing Tips and Tricks / Built to Rule..Figures
« on: August 6, 2003, 11:43 AM »
Built to Rule is the new attempt by Hasbro to infiltrate the Lego market.  Each set contains a figure...

Anyway...the Tonka line seems to be chock full of generic 3 3/4" figures that actually have a little articulation to boot.  May be worth checking them out while browsing the Lego aisle at Target next time you are there

Virex's post resparked somehting I had been thinking of for a long time...how long will DVD's and CD's be here and when will they go the way of tape?

I envision eventually, everything entertainment wise in your house will be networked through your computer, all of your movies, music, games will be stored as files with portable equipment to transfer to your car and walkman (which is the way some people are already doing).  Your receiver (I guess "hub") will then route your media to the TV, Speakers etc...everything will be bought on-line and just downloaded to your computer

This is what the PS2 was supposed to eventually be, perhaps that is what PS3 will become

Are we talking 5 years?  10 years?

Watto's Junk Yard / Worst CD you Bought...And Still Own
« on: August 4, 2003, 04:08 PM »
WHilst chatting with a friend the other night we were reminiscing of unfortunate CD purchases of the past 10-12 years and I amazed at some of the crap I still have in ye olde collection

Something I bought, listened to one time, thought, wowza that sucked and put it away.  The sad thing is, it is still sitting there.  Not thrown away, sold at a garage sale or given to charity.  It sits there mocking you, saying nah nah nah nah nah, you spent $12 on me!

My nomination.

Chris Cornell's solo CD, Euphoria Morning...I loved Soundgarden, geniunely liked his stuff on the Singles soundtrack, think Audioslave is pretty cool.  This CD however absolutely sucks...it blows chunks, and I still have  ::) :-*

Say what you will about it but...ick

Watto's Junk Yard / Chronicles of Narnia
« on: August 4, 2003, 11:34 AM »
Anyone read these books?  

I read a blurb in USA Today a couple weeks back that they are adapting the first Book..."The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" to the big screen.

Some of my favorite books as kid I was happy to hear that (I suppose to try and capatilize on the LOTR and Harry potter trend)...not sure if I am alone out there in a sea of literary geekdom though.

To be honest, I didn't read all of the books either, the first one is one of my alltime favorites though and the highlight of 4th grade for me :-*

Saga '02-'04 / Defender Wish Lists: Mos Eisley Cantina
« on: August 4, 2003, 10:33 AM »


Send your Wish List for 10[/i] 3 3/4" Figures to me or post them here, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases and I'll tally the votes.  After four weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie (or scene :-*).  This time around it is the wretched hive of scum and villainry...the Cantina.  If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:   Episode IV.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Also check out Red6's archive for the very obscurest of the obscure for more choices...

So...lets make a list of figures that have not been made

Let's start with

A New Hope

Imperial Gunner #1 "There goes another one"
Imperial Gunner #2 "Hold your fire, there are no life forms"

Watto's Junk Yard / Your Song...
« on: August 1, 2003, 10:24 AM »
MY wife and I have a song

Here, There and Everywhere by the Beatles...we had it sung at our wedding and we make and effort every now and then to play it every now and then (especially on our anniversary) which is just a simple reminder of what our marriage is, was and will be

My own personal song is Sweet Child O' Mine  The opening guitar lick followed by the greatest bass riff of all time jsut gets me everytime.  Anywhere I am and Sweet Child comes on I can't help but get a big goofy grin on my face and sing along to my hearts content.  It was the highlight of the GN'R concert in Fargo I went to last winter

Watto's Junk Yard / Sigh...The Family Truckster
« on: July 31, 2003, 02:00 PM »
Wifey put her foot down last Spring that she would not be driving my Mustang this winter to work after she went in the ditch with it.  I am inclined to agree with her so the hunt has begun for a new car

BEing on the road quite bit the past few months I have been able to test drive quite a few different models (Toyota, Dodge, Ford etc) for an extended period of time.  I'm thinking of getting a 4 door sedan as opposed to a SUV, pseudo-SUV or Wagon.  Taurus, Saturn L Series (we have a Saturn S Series now) and Toyota Camry are leading the way right now.

I am just in denial that my sportscar will be gone in a few weeks replaced by a 4 door Taurus or Saturn and it makes me sad...

Anyone have a similar experience or recommendations for me :'(

Watto's Junk Yard / Dream Toy Runs (I had a great day)
« on: July 30, 2003, 09:02 PM »
Ever have that toy run that you sometimes only dream about???

Today started off with promise and ended like none I have ever seen before...

I started at my local Target (2 blocks down the road)and picked nada but saw parts of Simpsons Wave 13 (this I have on order from Newforce).  Wow I thought great start

Went to the next Target and found the new Spiderman and Daredevil from the Spiderman Classics line.  Wow 2 for 2!  

Next Target before I had to start work I found a literal motherload...  Wave 1 of Simpsons 2 Packs, Zipline Batman and The Jedi Council Screen Scene.  Wowza!  3 for 3!

So I decided to head out again after work thinking what the heck why not...I headed north and stopped again at Target...Joker (which I think looks awesome) the Geonosian Screen Scene and Sam Gamgee in Orc Gear.  My head was literally spinning.  4 stops, 4 finds!

There is another Target sorta on the way home...I thought what the heck...I walked up to the aisle, and sitting right on the front peg was Goliath.  Unbelievable, I seriously almost fell over.  

It was a dream day and one I will never, ever duplicate.  The only bad thing was all the $$$ I dropped...good thing was I filled a lot of wants and I literally have nothing to hunt for for a long while (yeah right)

Hall of Justice / Mattel Batman
« on: July 30, 2003, 03:48 PM »
Another impulse buy today was the latest Mattel Batman (The Zipline version)

What a great figure this is, sculpted by the Four Horseman (Same guys who do MOTU) it looks like the Batman people have wanted forever.  Looking at what else is in the line though makes me cringe...

A line I probably won't collect but a figure I couldn't pass up!

Other Toy Lines / Lord of the Rings: Armies of Middle Earth
« on: July 29, 2003, 10:38 AM »
I saw the Battering Ram set with Uruk Hai and the Catapult with more Uruks last night at Target.

I told myself time and time again that I cannot and will not like these because I don't have room

But holding them in my hands and inspecting them made me drool over the detail that Play Along has put into these little guys

Anyone seen the Helm's Deep Playset...OMG what a masterpiece that is

True too for the Balrog/Gandalf scene which may break me and make me get some of these

I may also just complete a set of the Fellowship and call it good.  Try and finish out the Toy Biz line with some key pieces and be done with it all
