Can I use my Hyperspace Access Code from the Earlier Bird Kit to register and vote? I almost used one and there was a space at the bottom of the page to imput a referal, but it said nothing about the election. Anyone think that would count? If so, I can get you three votes.

I cracked my EB kit open a month or two ago and the access code was expired.  Maybe it's only the "newer" sets that still have a valid code??

Saga Collection '06 / Re: RUMOR AT-TE Possibly Coming?
« on: March 30, 2006, 11:37 AM »
Nice rumor and I hope that it's true, but I highly doubt that Hasbro has the balls to make an entirely new scuplt, plus one that's so big (not as big as we all would want though.)  With the re-released AT-AT coming with new deco, I can't see the AT-TE coming out anytime soon.  At least not now.

I do like the fact that Cody has a background image of the AT-TE.  Gives us hope I suppose, but do you remember the Cloud Car Pilots??  I thought for sure that Hasbro would re-release their vehicle in the OTC line, but no dice.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: TSC Recent Purchases
« on: March 30, 2006, 11:25 AM »
Picked up a TSC Cody to finish off that wave.  Also scored UGH Han and Vader.  I almost blinded myself while trying to clear the fingerprints off the foil logo in the light.  Guess I can't blame that on the HW guys though as I'm sure they wouldn't have been on the pegs to begin with.

Bigbadtoystore has all the UGH figs in stock, though most are a bit too expensive.

Read through alot of Jeff's thread on RS and I must say that there are some nasty kids folks on that site that post there.

Yeah, the wost is, they know you don't give a crap about HW, so they'll beat you to the SW section. >:(

This has been happening to me every morning I venture out and I can't stand it.  More so than with any other line of SW figs.  I've never had to race to the SW section to get what I need.

Are all HW people scalpers or do some actually collect both lines?  If they collected SW on a regular basis for their own needs, then I wouldn't have as big of a problem with them as I have now.

I bought Starship Troopers 2.

Is that movie any good?  I loved the original, and bought the sequel for a few bucks, but I've yet to watch it.  In fact I've only seen about half of my DVD collection which is quite sad.

Short answer: It's horrible.

I picked it up for about $5, I think, because I loved the first movie, too. The first thing you'll notice is this LAME title scrawl, ripped off of Star Wars... The second thing you'll notice is that the video is grainy and ******, worse than a hand-held camera... this movie obviously didn't have the graphics budget of the first... I almost expected to see a Bug hand-puppet, in some of the shots. The entire movie, even the few outside shots, is all very clausterphobic. It's obvious that the B actors are all working on a very, very small set... The lighting is god awful, the script is shoddy. The storyline is 'aight'...

The only nice thing I can say is that there's a 'decent' pair of boobs, which, while making the movie that much more lame, at least gives you something to look at. *Sort of joking*

You'll enjoy it more if I tell you it's that its the absolute worst movie I've ever seen. Expect the absolute WORST... Maybe it won't be as bad as you expect it, then.

Oh... Don't bother turning the brightness up - you'll only see better just how awful the graphics are.

All of that said - I actually laughed through most of the movie, so it was worth my $5.

Edit:

Oh, and the Commentary is pretty funny... The guys spend most of their time trashing their own work.

Makes me feel better that I haven't watched it.  I love "stupid" movies that they make funny kinda like the original SST which I believe was produced by the Robocop crew.

Hmm.  Boobs the only thing to look forward to in SST2?  Guess it's worth the $3 I spent to see that even though the movie presumably sucks ass.

I disagree...I get about 90% of my SW goods from WM.

I've received maybe 10% (if that even) of my collection from MN Wal-Marts.  They just suck for SW hunting flat out - ask most of the MN crew.  Guess it all depends on what part of the country you live in.   :-\  Must be nice to have both a Target and a WM to look for new figs.

End

Anybody ircked about Canadian accents?  I don't have a pic to show like everybody else, but I'm sure you get the point.

Pegs read $6.64 tonight at a local MN Target.  1 entire cent more than Wal-Mart.  Can't get any better/worse I suppose.  Twas nice to have a price cut for at least a few weeks.  WM still sucks monkey balls in my opinion.
