Gentle Giant / Re: OT Gentle Giant Busts
« on: December 23, 2004, 02:25 AM »
Well, obviously GG has heard about the stink that is being raised by this:

Philip posed this at the scum:

FYI: From Gentle Giant:

In the spirit of the holiday season, this item was created as a gift for certain extended members of the Gentle Giant business family. We at Gentle Giant do not view this item as a part of our ongoing Star Wars mini bust collection, and we apologize if you view it as such. We hope that you will continue to collect the pieces in our collection that bring you enjoyment.

Answers to FAQ:
This holiday gift will not be made available for purchase through any outlet in the future.
No announcements have been made regarding a Sandtrooper mini bust and any information you may hear regarding one from sources other than Gentle Giant should be treated as speculation at best and falsehood at worst.

Gentle Giant will not be announcing specific details (recipients, etc.) regarding the gift at any time.


I guess knowing that it's not an "official" makes it easier to accept.  But just knowing that it's out there...

There's just something Canadian about bitching about the weather.  It must be our national pasttime.   ;)

So, I'll proceed:  currently -29o::)
But the cold snap should be over soon!
-14oc tomorrow and -2oc for Xmas.  More importantly, the wind seems to be leaving us alone now.   :)

Now that has got to be one of the coolest ideas they've had in a very long time.  What a tribute to the vintage line.  I love it!   :D

HOWEVER.... $70US?  How can they possibly justify that price?  :(

Definitely a scary situation.  Ebay can be so unpredictable as it is, so you'd think it would be safe to trust the ebayers that have proven to be reliable.  It's scary when even the guys that have been so honest in the past suddenly turn (whether intentional or not) and screw over even 1 person, much less the growing numbers in this case.   :-\

Hmmm... You know, I've never really thought about landed vs flight mode.  Very interesting.  I see now what you mean, if the ship is in action, it only makes sense to have someone piloting it.

In the past, I was never really excited about the Gunship, even how it looked in the movie.  But now that I've seen it in this form, I've really grown to like how they look.  Nice:

I've been keeping an eye on this thread for a while.  Very uncool.  I'm a little off topic, but I was wondering if he was telling the truth about PayPal complaints causing NeoToys account to be locked.  Does making a formal complaint with PayPal actually slow down the refund process?  (assuming he actually had any intent to refund people)

Wow.  Code 3 continues to amaze me with these.  I think the figures are a neat idea, but if I do ever get it (I hear you Matt and Dale), I'd probably display it without the figures.  I don't know, they almost seem to distract your eye from the ship.

« on: December 21, 2004, 02:22 AM »
Holy ****! You have to be kidding me! The wind just picked up like crazy & a storm is coming in.

Damn Albertans, always sending their **** our way.  Next time it storms, send us the nice gentle snow, but you can keep the freakin' 60km/hr winds, OK?   :P

At the peak today, it was -19oC, but with the wind chill is was a balmy -32oC.  But the week will improve until Boxing Day, when it's supposed to reach +6oC.  And on the 27th?  Projected high of -27oC.  WTF?!

When I'm posting, I'm at home.  Just using my 3 year old Dell that needs to be replaced this year (Doom 3 runs way too slow  ;D).  My desk is far from the stylish ones that are produced these days, but I absolutely love it.  It's a partner desk that is about 50 years old - it's just about indestructible.  Solid wood - they don't make 'em this way anymore!

I'd love to be posting while I was at work, but my bastard employers won't give us lowly staff pharmacists internet access, just the managers.  Bah!

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: McFarlane is Bankrupt
« on: December 21, 2004, 02:01 AM »
Sure, McFarlane is a bit of a spoiled brat, but awarding Twist $15 mil is a crock of ****.  Simple as that.  How this case wasn't laughed out of court by the judge is beyond me.   >:(

The Naboo battle(s) are the worst though, as Anakin miraculously pilots a fighter, and dumb luck finds him destroying the TF's ship.  I cry BS on that one...  Either have the kid more in control of the ship and displaying actual SKILL and ability rather than luck, or have him simply not be a part of the conflict really beyond maybe helping knock out some fighters who are after the REAL heroes (God forbid we develope Ric Olie into a deep character who is the one that takes out the TF ship ala an old Wedge ANtilles). 

Truer words were never said.  As annoying as Jar Jar was, I could tolerate him.  But when Anakin basically wins the entire Naboo battle BY COMPLETE FLUKE, I was seriously pissed.  You could say: the force guided him to destroy the power in the control ship.  Well then at least make it appear that he felt the force guiding him, rather than just randomly shooting.  So he accidentally destroys the ship, which shuts down the battle droids, which wins the Battle of Naboo.  All Fluke.  **** off, give us something more intelligent to work with Lucas.  The presence of a believable climaxing battle is the number one reason I like AOTC better than TPM.

And OK, so Jar Jar is there for comedic relief so that the kids can laugh.  Hey, I laughed at him a few times too.  (Let the flames fly).  But I hate it when the blundering fool can continually destroy battle droid after battle droid.  OK, once is funny, but again and again - it gets old in a big hurry.

The biggest drawback to the prequels?  Emotion.  In TPM, there is rarely any expressed, or when it is, it seems so forced that it's not believable.  In AOTC, Anakin's anger with Obi-Wan is what I expect to see, but Hayden manages to come off as too whiny rather than enraged.  I sure hope he can improve on his ability to project this rage in ROTS.   :-[

Other Collectibles / Re: Collecting 'To Do' Lists!
« on: December 21, 2004, 01:03 AM »
Okay.  2005 is going to be the year that I actually finish some of my frickin' collections.  It'll be tricky with so much ROTS coming out too, but I'm determined to get them done.  This is going to be a long and ugly list, but I think that if I see it up here it'll keep me motivated to complete the collections!

EDIT:  I've come very close to completing my OTC collection, including all of the VOTC and POTC.  I'm also working on the Galactic Heroes, Bust-Ups & Unleashed series - lots of fun!  :D
