Man Beats Donkey Kong Jr. Record

This record had stood for over 20 years!  

Great work dude...

Which reminds me anyone think George would have eventually gotten the Frogger world record?

Other Toy Lines / Welcome to the New Forum Section!

After convincing management that this section is a must have tonight is the debut!  Welcome and feel free to discuss any non-SW toy lines here!

We'll try and keep the lengths of the threads at a minimum and perhaps a running tally of threads on said topic.

Now lets talk toys! :-*

Watto's Junk Yard / The Wiggles!
« on: July 16, 2003, 03:46 PM »
My son (16 months old) recently fell in love with 4 crazy guys from Downunder called Wiggles: Jeff, Murray, Anthony and Greg.  Tack on a Crazy Pirate Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog, Henry the Octopus and Dorothy the Dinosaur and you have the biggest thing since Barney

Their show is on the Disney Channel two or three times a day in the mornings, they have a slew of tapes, CDs and DVDs out as well

Well, what brought this all up is that we are going to a Wiggles concert in August which is one of 4 sold out shows.  Tickets to the shows are being scalped on eBay for $100 a piece!  It is amazing, and the momentum is just starting.  

Anyone else involved in Wigglemania?

Announcements / Other Toy Lines and You...New Forum Section?
« on: July 16, 2003, 03:29 PM »
We here at JediDefender have come to realization that most of us collect other things besides SW...McFarlane, Simpsons, LOTR, Charlie Brown ???, etc etc

So, we have been kicking around the idea of starting a new section on the forums which deals with these lines and removes that talk from Watto's

Watto's will remain the place to talk about What You Look Like, Llamas, Current Events, Sports, Politics  :P, Music, Movies and everything else

So we are putting it up for debate and seeing what you the gentle readers and members of the site have to say

In the words of an infamous doofus

Saga '02-'04 / Padme's Secret

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  ;)

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

I have to go with Chunk, the dude was amazing

Favorite scene for sure is when he is telling the Fratelli's all of the crappy stuff he did when he was younger...

Bwooooaaaaahhhh, Bwoooooooaahhhh

People started puking all over

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!

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends Wave 4
« on: June 23, 2003, 01:18 PM »
I just read a report that Wave 4 has been spotted in a Tampa TRU, keep those eyes peeled.  I do want a Goliath so if anyone comes across an extra ::) think of your old buddy in Minnesota  ;)

Goliath with Antman and Wasp CHASE FIGURE

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: 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)!
