Other Toy Lines / Medicom RAH Figures
« on: September 2, 2005, 10:27 PM »
I'm not a huge fan of the show 24, but check out the upcoming Jack Bauer figure from Medicom.



They really nailed his likeness.  I may have to keep an eye on this line (besides the Star Wars ones they're already making).

Jocasta's Reading Room / Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader
« on: August 18, 2005, 07:55 PM »
I just finished reading an article in the latest Insider (#83) about the upcoming novel, Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader.  I haven't read many novels lately, but this one has piqued my interest.

It's written by James Luceno, the same author that wrote Labyrinth of Evil, the lead-in to Episode III.  It's available at Amazon.com for $17.13, 34% of the list price of $25.95.

(Mild) Spoilers below:
















Apparently a big focus of the novel is the relationship between Vader and Palpatine, which I'm very curious to read about.  Obviously Anakin was manipulated into his position, so what does he think of that?

Watto's Junk Yard / Disneyland!
« on: August 8, 2005, 06:24 PM »
Out of the blue, my family may be going to Disneyland - definitely a "last minute" decision, because we would be going August 27 to September 1, less than 3 weeks away.   :o    My wife, nearly 4 year old daughter and mother-in-law would be going, but I'm still scrambling to see if I can get the time off work.

I've a 29 year old big kid that's never been to Disneyland, so does anyone have any "must sees" for a fairly quick visit (only 4 days)?

« on: August 2, 2005, 10:24 PM »

Need something really unique?  How about a Shoetrooper?

According to this eBay link, it is 1 of only 25 made.  It is made by Michael Lau, apparently otherwise known as Mr Shoe.

And a bargain at only 99.99 pounds (nearly $200US).   ;)

Other Collectibles / Darth Vader Statue in 1/2 Scale
« on: July 9, 2005, 09:16 PM »
Slave1.jp is reporting that a 1/2 scale Darth Vader will be released in July in Japan for the price of 64,000 Yen ($570US or $695CDN).  Unfortunately, I'm not sure who will be releasing it.  The following information is translated from Slave1.jp:

"The reservation of big size DarthVader of 1/2 scales was started. The breath sound of Vader is done the internal organs, the gimmick where the light/write saver radiates with single three electric battery 3. Total length: Approximately 1m, manufacturer details obscurity. Sale day: 2005 July reservation price: 64,000 "

Check out the above PDF catalog for some amazing production artificats that will be auctioned off.  But be patient, it's a very large file.   :)

These are original, one of a kind items, used in the movies, etc.

I'd LOVE to get that stormtrooper blaster, but I don't think I've got $25,000 kicking around.   :o

Watto's Junk Yard / Gone to the Dark Side, he has
« on: May 24, 2005, 06:57 PM »
http://www.wistv.com/Global/story.asp?S=3377573

"Darth Vader robs Illinois theater

(Springfield, Illinois-NBC) May 22, 2005 - It appears Darth Vader delivered an unwelcome show of force at an Illinois movie theater this weekend.

Police in Springfield, Illinois say a man wearing a Darth Vader mask walked into a movie theater, shoved an employee out of the way and grabbed a bunch of cash.

Investigators say the robber fled the theater and ran into a nearby wooded area. Police have no suspects.

"Star Wars: Episode Three-Revenge of the Sith" was actually one of the movies playing at the theater.

Investigators say the robber didn't display any weapons- not even a light saber. "


Gotta love that last line!   ;)

Celebration III: Indianapolis / Don't forget these for C3
« on: April 18, 2005, 12:12 PM »
I just thought I'd start a quick thread of things we'll all likely need for C3.  We're all too excited to think straight and probably going to forget something, so let's help each other out!

  • C3 Passes if received in mail
  • Paperwork & credit card for Passes for Will Call
  • Cash / Credit Card(s) / Left arm
  • - can't pass up on that purchase of a lifetime, can you?
  • ID - "are you sure you're 21?"
  • Camera
  • Batteries & charger - for lots of pics!
  • Cellphone & charger
  • Binoculars?
  • Backpack
  • Jacket / weather appropriate wear
  • Poster tube?
  • Loose action figures for FFURG's booth - should be fun!
  • Deodorant / breathmints / toothbrush and toothpaste - I don't want your stinky ass standing next to me!
  • Clean / extra underwear - listen to your mom, dammit!
  • Snack foods

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things at this moment, so be sure to add more kids!

edit... Added in Princess' excellent suggestions.
