Watto's Junk Yard / "Troopers of the Galaxy"
« on: May 24, 2003, 01:14 AM »
Saw this pretty cool little news article on the official Star Wars website about the different "Troopers of the Galaxy."  Thought it would be cool to share with everyone here who hasn't seen it yet.  There are some troopers that I didn't even know existed (mainly from the EU series).

Episode 1 / Royal Starship Astromech Unit
« on: May 24, 2003, 01:08 AM »
What's the official name of the red astromech droid on the Queen's Royal Starship (playset)?  My friend just got this droid off eBay, and I was curious to know what the name of it is.  The guy who sold it didn't know the name of it either.

Watto's Junk Yard / Children's Artwork of Star Wars
« on: May 21, 2003, 05:55 PM »
Wanted to share this beautiful piece of artwork I found over on Something Awful's website (click here to go to it).  I will include the review they did on this picture (listed in yellow) and they were pretty harsh toward George Lucas, but I thought the drawing was pretty good for a 10-year old.  These are the kind of pictures I used to draw all the time when I was a kid.  Did anyone here ever draw pictures like this when you were a kid?

I really am in shock after seeing this picture. It's got tons of action, explosions, lasers, and plenty of neatness. Sure it's rather crude, but Andrew clearly has the same emotional maturity as George Lucas. If that bearded bastard can make hundreds of millions of dollars adding laser effects and crappy CG characters to ever inch of film space he can get his inept hands on, then this picture qualifies as good art. I never thought I'd be this generous, especially since my aim is to be mean and hateful, but I suppose I have to be objective from time to time.

Additional Comments: Good job, your special effects really are a step above Industrial Light and Magic.
Final Grade: A+

Watto's Junk Yard / Personal Digital Assistants

Who here uses them?  Do you enjoy using them?  Have they helped you live a more productful and organized life?

I live and die by my Sony PEG-SJ20 handheld PDA.  It uses the Palm OS, has a black-and-white display, and has 16mb of memory (includes memory expension slot).  I use this thing all the time, and I don't know what I would do without it.  It sure is a lot nice using this than a regular day planner.  I've used a Palm OS device since 1996.

I'm happy to be the first here to start a thread for Karma.  Just bought the Bloody Luke Bespin figure from her, and am most pleased with it.  She shipped it very quickly, and was very responsive to my emails.  Thanks Karma!!!

Watto's Junk Yard / Thunderstorms and a Camera/Camcorder
« on: May 10, 2003, 07:07 PM »
There was an awesome storm that swept through the Chicago area on 5/8/03 (and also on 5/9), and I was able to get some cool pictures using my digital video camcorder.

Does anyone here ever try videotaping or picture-taking of thunderstorms?  Anyone here have some awesome pictures to share with us?

Conventions / Wizard World - Chicago
« on: May 8, 2003, 11:04 AM »

Hey, I think I want to go to this thing, but what exactly is going to be there?  I'm at their website right now, and it doesn't mention anything about Star Wars.  Has anyone ever gone to this show before?  If they have a bunch of Star Wars stuff, and especially those blue Clone Trooper busts then I'm going.  I've just never gone to anything like this before.

LMK... thanks!!!

JD Sports Forum! / The Official "WWE" Thread
« on: May 6, 2003, 12:12 AM »

Who here loves the WWE?  I've been a huge fan for the last 3 years, and it's almost impossible getting me away from the TV when Smackdown or RAW is on TV.  I occassionally will order one of the special shows on PPV, but that is quite rare (too much money for a show, even though they're great to watch).

Who's your favorite character?  Who do you most resemble?  What do you like watching better... Smackdown or RAW?

Let this be the thread where anything goes... as long as it involves the WWE.  If you have any spoilers please make sure you mention that at the beginning of your post.  Thanks!
