Watto's Junk Yard / Re: '67 Shelby Cobra found after 45 years

If that ad includes the car's number, let me know what it is. Technically, we shouldn't have to go through all of this legal crap according to the police but this guy is playing politics. The local sheriff is a buddy of this guy and won't let the police impound the car. Not sure how legal that is or not. The DA says we have to go this direction. Basically justice delayed is justice denied.

Power of the Force 2 / Yak Face

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.

Suing someone takes time.

I just worry that retailers will be left with a line that is massively over produced and never restock again even after discounting the stuff at a loss. Greed is the factor here. If retail buys too much we may be stuck with old stock for a very long time and miss future waves. It's 1999 all over again.

Of course you know everyone and their grandma will be stock piling stuff in their attics right next to their worthless Episode 1 stuff.

Yikes! I assume this one is going to be R-rated.

Weren't the Episode 1 figures all 5 POS? We really didn't see articulated stuff until AOTC. The last lines of that post from JTA remind me how Episode 1 stuff was everywhere and then eventually sold at huge discounts to get rid of it. Could we be seeing a giant feast of stuff only to be followed by years of famine because the stores are too scare to buy Star Wars stuff again?

HTS hasn't bothered to ship my Stormtrooper yet. They were suppose to ship on 7/29. It is still sitting at not shipped status. I think they need more trained monkeys.

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?

It looks like the base is made from a cheaper thinner plastic than the US version. Is that true?

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Windows 10 ISO available
« on: July 30, 2015, 10:07 AM »
Considering it has been released to 190 countries, the deployment is running really well. I haven't experience any problems with the in place upgrade.  There are some huge benefits to upgrading from 7 or 8 to this. Start menu back. Multiple desktops. New notification system. Cortana search (like Siri for desktop). Camera login. The new Edge browser. It's free for everyone on Windows 7, 8 or 8.1.

Can you post a close  up picture of that desert speeder you have in the second picture?

Now if I could find a Toy Fair silver Vader....I should have bought that one when I had a chance all those years ago.

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.

I miss the old days when you could get an exclusive from SDCC both at the show and online the next day and it would stay up for a few days. Hasbro would actually have enough stock to sell for anyone that wanted one. The Hot Wheels guys have completely destroyed this hobby.

Got it!
