Saga '02-'04 / Cantina Wave 2 Sets a No Go (For now)
« on: April 11, 2003, 11:15 AM »

This really ticks me off.  Hasbro really screwed the pooch by releasing retail death in Greedo, Hammerhead and Walrusman in the first wave.  Wave 2 minus Wuher is where these sets would have started to shine.  There are a couple of e-tailers, Brians Toys being one of them where you can order them still.  Expect to pay a hefty price for them though.  This is a line which makes perfect sense for the fan club or an on-line exclusive for an e-tailer.

I was hoping too that it would continue and we would get a Hem Dazon, Myo, Feltipern, Dice etc etc etc

Watto's Junk Yard / Guilty Pleasures
« on: April 10, 2003, 10:37 AM »
Things you love but don't really tell anyone about ;)  Or things you only have once in a while

Trading Spaces  Ever since I became a home owner I can't help but like this show, no matter how much it challanges my masculinity.  It is really fun to watch and some of those designers are hot!

Cat Stevens Not sure where Cat ranks in the world of music but I hear songs of his and I can't help but smile and sing along.  I think he is one of the most underrated singers of all time

Snickers  Since I have been watching the waistline for a long time now candy bars are pretty much a no no.  But sometimes while standing in line at Target I just get the urge to grab a Snickers and eat the heck out of it, savoring every single bite.  

Shania Twain  I really like a lot of her music and she is such eye candy that she just oozes sexy to me.  I really can't stand a lot of anyhting that comes out of Nashville...

Natalie Merchant I have always been a 10000 Maniacs fan and when Natalie went solo she quickly became one of my favorite singers.  Her first solo CD Tigerlilly is one I would be bringing with if I was heading over the Pacific on a FedEx plane.  

Pizza  Another of the watching your waistline things but plowing into a Large Papa Murphy's Pepperoni Pizza with an ice cold beer to wash it all down with...

Steak  Steak is one of those foods I enjoy only when properly prepared for me with the right sides, marinated just right and it has to be grilled to the right temperature

I swear if I see Chewbacca in any form on any rumor list I might blow a gasket.  Darth Vader is quickly apporaching that point as well.  The Cloud City Chewie is about perfect.  It looks like the upcoming 4 pack Vader and the MOTD Vader are definitive scuplts of ROTJ and ANH Vader.  There are a lot more main character new sculpts and resculpts they can do before these two borons

Watto's Junk Yard / Class Reunions
« on: April 7, 2003, 05:24 PM »
In a sign that I am approaching that sure sign of oldness my 10 year High School class reunion is coming up this summer.  I haven't totally decided on if I want to go or not yet...

I was pretty much a geek in school I still had plenty of friends, some I haven't seen since graduation night so in that sense it would be fun.

I also am well beyond high school and most of my important friends I still see, not sure I want see some of the people I don't see and pay $30 to relive 1993 all over again...

Any of the older crew go to any of theirs?

Collector's Tips / Storing Loose Figs
« on: April 7, 2003, 01:17 PM »
I use Plano Tackle Boxes to store my loose figures.  It is sweet cause you can adjust the height of the slots and keep the weapons below each figure.  They harken back to the days of the vintage cases...

Saga '02-'04 / Same Body, Different Heads
« on: April 4, 2003, 02:26 PM »

Hasbro recently told Rebelscum that this scenario is the only way we would get such tertiary background characters as the above Faytonni and Ak-Med Beq.  While this isn't the greatest sign in the line's health IMO there are some instances where I would perfectly fine with them doing it...

Rebel Pilots (New Heads with Deco'd Helmets)
Ewoks (Two different size bodies with different cowels and paint apps)
Protocal Droids
Imperial Officers

Etc etc...

What do you think of this trend?

I was fine with figures like R2-Q5 and K-3PO which were straight repaints.  If this is what it takes to get some of the background of the background, I'm all for it!


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 two to three weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie.  This time around it is the latest movie in the saga SW:AOTC, or Episode II.  If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:   Episode II.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Watto's Junk Yard / Ever get in a fight?
« on: April 3, 2003, 03:09 PM »
I heard it through the grapevine that someone we all know recently got in a fight.  Get well soon if you don't want to reveal to the world who you are ;) :-X

Anyway, ever been in a fist fight?  I got into one in 8th grade with a friend of mine.  He was constantly picking on me for some reason and I had had about enough.  I told him to meet me down at the park at 3.  I didn't think was going to show up, well he did.  I had one of my other buddies there who wanted to watch.  We started pushing each other and then I hit him in the face I think.  He wound back and landed one right on my lip and cut me open...wide open.  I had blood streaming down my face and he got scared and said stop stop stop.  I was really bleeding and we got some ice (it was around this time too so there was still snow banks around)  I probably should have got stitches but the cut eventually healed.  Man did it hurt.  I still have a scar on my lip which you can kind of see in my infamous picture...bottom left side

I always kind of work that scar over subliminally and it reminds of one of the stupidest times of my youth.

Me and my buddy patched things up and he never really picked on me again, we are still pretty good friends he is a Doctor in Chicago...perhaps I should sue him for emotional damage :P

I am sure Sarge has seen his share of brawls (maybe even been in one)

Watto's Junk Yard / Breakfast
« on: April 2, 2003, 10:53 AM »
Breakfast food is my favorite stuff but I rarely eat breakfast.  As I stated in the exercise thread I could eat 2 eggs with hashbrowns every day it is so good.  We sometimes make this on the weekends and top the eggs off with some cheese and salsa.  Oh baby...

I also love pancakes and waffles.  I think Perkins is pretty much a national chain but they have this Deli Ham and Cheese Omelette with SOur cream that you also get a stack of pancakes with.  I swear if I ever got the gas chamber this would be my final meal

Then there is cereal.  I could also live off of Frosted Flakes with sliced banana and some ice cold milk.  I usually eat cereal before I go to bed.  I just don't usually have time to eat in the morning and will usually just grab a granola bar and a cup of joe for the road

All hail Breakfast!

Watto's Junk Yard / Thoughts and Prayers: To All
« on: March 19, 2003, 12:00 PM »
With the impending conflict in Iraq my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone I know.  To our soldiers and commanders involved in the conflict.  The uncertainty involved with terrorism here and abroad.  To the Iraqi people and soldiers who are forced to fight. neighboring countries and its citizens etc

I don't think anything drastic will happen...May God Bless us all if it does though  ;)

We have decided to separate out the Clone Wars line from the Star Wars Saga line in order to give this new and exciting line its own home.

Enjoy  ;D
