I think TRU and other such toy stores will survive. People are buying toys for the kids for Christmas and TRU is packed. Sure, people are not buying Star Wars figures but they are buying things like TMNTs, Legos, dolls, craft-type stuff, bikes, hot wheels, nerf, video games, etc. Toys do sell but regular people buy for gifts or implus buys for their kids. The Lego store down at Downtown Disney is always crazy packed. Collector oriented stuff doesn't sell at traditional stores. I think we get a little focused on our own little area of the toy world and think the toy industry is dieing but don't look at what kids really want. It ain't Star Wars but maybe superheros instead.

Watto's Junk Yard / Disney Buys Indiana Jones Distribution Rights

I didn't know that Indiana Jones was not part of the original Star Wars deal but I guess Disney just bought the Indiana Jones franchise. I guess now they don't have to pay royality rights for the theme park rides or merchanise anymore.

Filming for Indiana Jones and the Revenge of Goofy will start next month.

You know, I never showed the video game consoles setup. The systems are plugged in and working. The x-arcade is attached to the computer for MAME emulation.

From left to right: Nintendo 64, Panasonic 3DO, Colecovision (with AV mod), Sega CDX, XBox 360, stereo, Sega Dreamcast, Playstation 2, Atari 7800 (with AV mod & harmony SD cart), Atari Jaguar, Nintendo Gamecube, Atari 5200 (with AV mod and Ultra SD card). My 2600, O2 and Sega Genesis are up in the attic.

Figures must have a huge markup to discount these to 60%. You know they are still making money on these.

That's like winning the lottery since they only put one up at a time.

There needs to be a CG breast implant if she is going to play Wonder Woman. (unless she is going to play one of the wonder twins)

Emailed Amazon for the price adjustment. They did it within 15 minutes of me sending the email. Amazon rules!

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 2
« on: November 22, 2013, 04:13 PM »
Picked up a wave 2 Slave Leia last night.  And she definitely caught the attention of the cashier when I was checking out!  All of a sudden she wanted to get into a conversation about Star Wars with me, and talking about the new movie, etc...

...And I'm just thinking to myself 'Why didn't I pick up Greedo instead?  Especially since I've got my daughter with me?!?!'

At least she was with you. Imagine what a perv you would look like buying a bikini clad figure for yourself. At least you can say it was for her.

Just ordered them from Amazon using the $40 deal. I had some money left on my rewards card so they ended up being free for me.  I could always use some new troops.

Now rereading, "Speaker for the Dead" by Orson Scott Card. Sequal to Enders Game.

In the aftermath of his terrible war, Ender Wiggin disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: The Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story of the Bugger War.

Now, long years later, a second alien race has been discovered, but again the aliens' ways are strange and frightening...again, humans die. And it is only the Speaker for the Dead, who is also Ender Wiggin the Xenocide, who has the courage to confront the mystery...and the truth.
Speaker for the Dead, the second novel in Orson Scott Card's Ender Quintet, is the winner of the 1986 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1987 Hugo Award for Best Novel.
