Power of the Force 2 / Yak Face
« on: August 6, 2015, 09:29 AM »
Why has there never been a resculpt of Yak Face since the POTF2 version? Every other less worthy character was redone a couple of times but not Yak Face. Hasbro could do better than this version.

Other Collectibles / Box busters
« on: August 2, 2015, 11:04 AM »
Yesterday at tru I came across the first toys with the TFA box art on them. These things are called Box Busters. They are boxes that unfold to show a battle scene complete with little ships. It comes with dice and chips and a play map. I guess it is some kind of game. The big set had a death star that explodes. Anyone see these things yet?

Watto's Junk Yard / Windows 10 ISO available
« on: July 29, 2015, 10:45 AM »
Microsoft has released a tool for downloading and setting up the windows 10 iso on a flash drive. I guess it will also install windows 10 on any Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 machine.

This kid and his mom tape recorded Star Wars when they saw it in the theaters in 1977. It's interesting hearing the audience reactions.

Joe Defender / Why 12" GI Joe is dead
« on: May 6, 2015, 09:48 AM »
There is an interview with Derryl Depriest about why Hasbro killed the 12" Joe line. What I found interesting is he said there were 12" Joes in 2011 but no one bought them. I would have shot back that they weren't available at retail so how was I suppose to buy them? The same applies to star wars that he runs. How can he say sales were bad if product was never available?

TV-9D9 / Star Wars parody on Sesame Street
« on: April 29, 2015, 11:20 PM »
Recently was watching Sesame Street and they did a parody of Star Wars. Cookie Monster was Han Solo. Chewbacca was a cookie. Cookie Monster was learning about self control. Anyway, the middle section featured Grover as Yoda (Groda). I hear it was done by Frank Oz.

Watto's Junk Yard / '67 Shelby Cobra found after 45 years
« on: April 29, 2015, 11:00 PM »
The day I was born, my dad when out and bought a '67 Shelby Cobra. He figured my mom was occupied at the moment giving birth and could say no to it. He bought it to work on it and to race it. My first car ride was in that car. About ten months later the car was stolen from our locked garage in board day light. My dad only put on 700 miles in that time since it was always in the shop.
 
Last month, my dad was at South Coast Corvette talking to the owner of the shop about that Cobra he had 45 years ago. He told him that he had still had the title, registration, vin number and lots of documentation on the car. They decided to look the car up in the Cobra registry just for fun. It turned out the car was in there!!! It seems the car was Carmel, California. The owner of South Coast Corvette has been friends with my dad for almost fifty years and said he would help get the car back. They hired a private investigator to go find the car.
 
Today, the PI gave my dad a call and said he found the car and will be picking it up next week and bringing it back to the police. We can then pick it up in LA. The story is still unfolding.
