Those big tubs full of DV's gold pics Tie I've seen kinda tick me off as I thought it'd be another TH ship, yet it's a convention exclusive.   :(Hopefully they'll offer some extras of the ship up on SWshop.com.

There was also the Autobot ship from TF: The Movie previewed there as well

What's up with the single TF ship????  I saw the packaging for the BG stuff and it's the same except for the label.  Are they just going to mix this one Autobot ship in with the SW or BG assortments or are there more Titanium TF's that I didn't see??

Found this blub from Tformers.com, but it doesn't really answer my quest:

HASBRO’S TITANIUM SERIES EXPANDS TO INCLUDE NEW OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD DIE-CAST VEHICLES AND FIGURES FROM STAR WARS, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA AND TRANSFORMERS

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (February 2006) – Intergalactic spaceships that are powerful enough to shuttle heroes and villains across a variety of sci-fi universes at the speed of light are now small enough to fit in your hand (or on your bookshelf). Hasbro, Inc.’s (NYSE: HAS), TITANIUM SERIES, a line of die-cast collectibles featuring intricate micro-detailing and action features, will be available nationally in early 2006 and is expanding to include new 3” vehicles, 3.75” figures and TRANSFORMERS robots!

Each vehicle comes complete with a display stand.

Also available in January 2006 will be the TITANIUM SERIES Ultra Vehicles. These hefty die-cast vehicles feature moveable action features and include a premium display case. The first vehicles available are the ARC-170 Starfighter (with opening cockpit) and the Trade Federation Droid Fighter (with rotating cockpit).

Darth Vader and Boba Fett will be the first Star Wars 3.75” figures available from the TITANIUM SERIES Collection. The intricately micro-detailed figures each include a custom base and premium display case and will be available in March 2006. Collectors will be interested in limited-edition versions of each figure featuring a patina finish.

Throughout the year, the TITANIUM SERIES universe will continue to expand with the addition of vehicles and figures from TRANSFORMERS and Battlestar Galactica: The expansions will feature the following:
• TITANIUM SERIES die-cast collectibles, to be introduced in July 2006, will include a variety of unique 3” robots as well as fully changeable 6” robots. Each one comes with a display base.

• The TITANIUM SERIES Battlestar Galactica line will be available in June 2006 and will include 3” vehicles and 3.75” figures from both the classic and new TV series.

The TITANIUM SERIES all caps Collection vehicles and figures will be available at toy stores and mass merchandise outlets nationwide.

Glad to see someone else on this site that's interested in the Alts.  I've been collecting them since Smokescreen was released and I'm up to Skids and Sunstreaker right now.  I've heard reports that Rollbar (D) and Ricohet (A) are hitting stores in case you're interested.

I haven't had a chance yet to transform Grimlock or Wheeljack back into their vehicle modes and frankly, I'm not looking forward to it.  These things are pretty complex and it takes a lot of fiddling with them to become good at transforming them back and forth so I pretty much either leave them all in the vehicle modes or the alt forms which I "alternate" every few months or so.

Hope you find the other guys you're looking for and I hope you enjoy the line!

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Bald or grey?
« on: February 1, 2006, 09:43 AM »
I've had baby thin hair all my life which in itself sucks, but I had some long locks back in high school that I was quite proud of even if it was thin.  I also was told by many that I'd be bald by 18. 

Well it's been 10 years and I still have most of my hair, though it continues to thin (on the top only) and the years of stress I put on my body has caused quite a bit of grey to sprout up (on the sides only). 

So I'm just waiting till it thins out a bit more to go with the que ball look.

Thanks for the belated wishes guys.  Just got a few gift cards - nothing too special as my bday is so close to Christmas.

Party hard?  Always.  I don't need to have a birthday for an excuse just to throw back a few drinks - just a little bit more is all  ;D

That sux… imagine all the SW goodies you could buy with that $1500 buck :-\

At least they are in a safe place…

Do you go a visit them every once and a while? :P

I usually do a monthly visit just to make sure everything's kosher and to ensure no avalanches or anything of that nature has happened.  I actually get quite disgusted with the amount of boxes I have.  - I never thought I could have too much crap, but I'm far beyond that point now.

My collection resides in my appropriately named "Star Wars Room". 

Yes, I am one of the nerdy ones who has a whole room in his house dedicated to his toys.  The room is on the lower level of the house (not really a basement since it's a walk-out).  The room is about 12x12 with a bunch of shelf units and a display table or two or three.

Jeff has an awesome set up and it made me think twice about leaving all my stuff carded and boxed.  You really need to post a pic of your room Jeff, I know we all enjoyed it (the MN crew that is)   ;)

Ya, I was watching Futurama on AS last night and they had the bumpers which said that the entire cast is going into the studio and the 4 DVD movies should be out by Summer.

All my stuff is boxed in a 10x10x20h climate controlled storage garage.  It's been costing me $130 per month for almost a full year now.   :-\  I'm in a transistional phase in my life right now so I just have a few Alternators and some recent TSC carded figs and Titanium ships around my room.

We (my girlfriend and I) just found a "recipe" for the best chicken/pork breading ever. This is just so damn tasty, and easy to make.

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 envelope dry Italian salad dressing (we use the "Zesty Italian")
6 boneless chicken breasts

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Moisten chicken with water; coat with cheese/dressing mixture. Place in shallow baking dish.
3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes.

We made it with the chicken as the recipe calls for, and it was so tasty we have used it on just about any kind of meat you might like to eat. Boneless pork chops are so good with this stuff on them. Mmmmmm...

I discovered the parmesan chicken recipe a few years ago when I was on Atkins and it's delicous!  I only make mine with the cheese, garlic, and pepper - I'll have to try the dried Italian seasoning mix.  Oh, I also coat the chicken in melted butter, but I suppose that water would be healthier.

I get asked for the recipe almost everytime I make this and I'm frankly too embarrassed to give it out because it's so damn easy to make.   :-\
