Saga '02-'04 / Padme's Secret
« on: July 13, 2003, 05:30 PM »
I opened Wedding Padme just a little while ago and took a gander up yonder.

She is wearing a neat little garter belt, nice touch Hasbro!

And I always look ever since "Party" Amidala came out  ;)

Other Toy Lines / Dream Toylines
« on: July 11, 2003, 02:48 PM »
What Line hasn't been made yet but you wish someday a manufacturer would pick up the license and run with it

For me I have the following wishes:

Indiana Jones Preferrably by Hasbro and same scale as SW
Ghostbusters Movie line not the cartoons, very realistic...I'm thinking McFarlane
The Goonies One of my favorite movies and would make for some neat figures
M.A.S.K. Re-Release, these were the best toys of the 80's behind GI Joe in my book, up the scale to 3 3/4" and bring back a new cartoon...mmmmm

And right now at #1 is Sesame Street style Muppets figures

Someone is sitting on a serious goldmine

JD Sports Forum! / JediDefender 2003 Fantasy Football!
« on: July 8, 2003, 11:48 AM »
There are a bunch of free Fantasy Football sites out there and I have tried this before and it has never, ever worked but thought I'd give it another chance to see if anyone would want to play

Ideally I'd like 8 people...first come first serve and we could probably have up to 12.  Let me know here and if not I can try again next year and just play in my real world league ;)

Not something we do around here but we just passed the 20,000 post mark here at the site and due to the fact that humans have an affinity for numbers that end in 0 for some reason, we wanted to thank all of you our member and mods and admin and others for being a part of our community that we are working very ahrd to build, foster and maintain.

We can't do it without you!  Thank You all and May the Force Be With You, Always!

Watto's Junk Yard / Movies that make you cry
« on: June 23, 2003, 11:45 AM »
 :'(

I am never ashamed to admit that some movies just have that certain oomph to reduce me to tears every time I see them

From the obvious

The end of Saving Private Ryan
Schindler's List

To the not so obvious

I cry every time E.T. goes home, I always wanted to be Elliott, and the fact he died and came back makes for some stellar cinema

Notice how there are 3 Spielberg movies here

I also cried profusely during the schlock fest called City of Angels with Nic Cage and Meg Ryan.  My wife and I were in the process of tying the knot and the song (In the arms of the angel) and moment just hit us right I guess and we both just broke down

I also remember sobbing profusely when Han was put into the carbon chamber...poor guy

Oh and my mom and dad tease me to this day that I used to cry during the Wizard of Oz because I was scared of the flying mokets and I didn't think Dorothy was ever going to make it home

I guess I am a big softy...

In a continuation of previous Defender Wish Lists, we move along to the final movie of the Original Trilogy: Return of the Jedi.  Fuzzy little teddy bears, gigantic gangster slugs and a plethora of aliens dot this movie and make it full of undone favorites.   There are some badly needed resculpts as well.   Feel free to send in your lists via e-mail: spearson@jedidefender.com or post them here.

If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:   Episode VI.  Also check out Red 6 for even more great charcters (and petition supporters) :P

Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Be it your spouse, your family, your other non-SW friends?

My buddies tease me incessantly about my "On-Line Star Wars buddies" even though we belong to a group of "On-Line Fantasy Football Buddies" as I like to point out.  I like to point out little know facts and cool things I pick up here, show them some of the latest new toys coming out etc.

I sometimes talk with my wife about a humorous incident that happened or Matt's Bulky Sweater but usually about the time her eyes glaze over I stop and then she teases me a little

Watto's Junk Yard / JD Book Club: What Are You Reading Now?
« on: June 6, 2003, 10:35 AM »
I just finsihed on the plane ride home yesterday The Silmarillion[/i] which is history of Elves in Middle Earth.  The thing is epic in proportion and may be my all time favorite book.  It is a very difficult read though.  There are like 200 names you need to keep track of so I was only able to read 3-4 pages a night.  The whole world that Tolkien created to supplement the history of LOTR is so rich and detailed and stunning.  You really have no idea until you read it all.  The gods, the elves, men, what went wrong etc etc  You can see some really cool almost Biblical connotations throughout the book...why do we die and is better to die than it would be to live forever?  It will definitely require a second reading just to make sure I have it all down and it will go a lot quicker then next time

Next up is Breakfast of Champions[/i] by Kurt Vonnegut.  I read this back in college but probably did not appreciate it very much so I am rereading it. :-*  

After that I am not sure what I will go for, I may dive back into the Hobbit or I may go onto something else entirely.

Saga '02-'04 / Has the Hoth Han Ad Been Released Yet?
« on: June 6, 2003, 10:11 AM »
I paged through a few comics this last week but didn't see it?  Anyone spotted it yet?



I'm going to frame this baby!

The Prequel Trilogy / Tarkin
« on: May 30, 2003, 02:37 PM »
The latest Homing Beacon also features Tarkin in the corner (As did the last one).  I read somewhere that Chewie was featured in 2 Homing Beacon Corners before he was announced as coming back for Episode III...

I think our man may not be too far behind and something I have been wanting to see forever...yes sir I will build you a Death Star
