There's actually been good news on the 12" front, at least if you're an Adventure Team fan.

Hot Topic just had a great run with their $15 Land Adventurer and they're ordering more.  Urban Outfitters will also be carrying some of the LA figures and will also have an Air Adventurer, probably some time in January.

I thought that the Cylons and humans were both on the same path for Earth...both based on calculations that Baltar did.  I don't imagine Adama took the fleet that far off course looking for food so that's how they found the algae planet.  I'm guessing that the Cylons found it the same way.

I have a question: Do we know all the numbers for the 7 known Cylon models (Six, Sharon, D'Anna, Leoben, Doral, Simon, Cavil?

I think in "Download", D'Anna says that she is 3, Sharon is 8 (and obviously we know what model six is). What about the other 4? Anyone able to help out? Thanks.

I don't know if they've told all the numbers yet.  But recently they've been referring to Six as Caprica if I'm not mistaken.  So, they all have names now.

Anyone that has ever taken a sensitivity class at work knows that a man can be accused of sexual harassment by pretty much just speaking to a woman. 

But, let's get back to what this thread is supposed to be about, hot broads   ;D

I received my two Hot Topic Land Adventurer figures today and they're awesome!  The box art is is really cool and has a very vintage feel to it.

They used the same head sculpt as they did for the 40th Anniversary figures.  The ******* isn't as thick as some of the Fan Club repro figs but it's better than a couple of the retail figs they put out like the Meijer figures and the Wal-Mart Deep Sea Diver.

The KFG hands rock, the Luger is a nice change to the standard Lebel revolver and another set of short black boots is a good thing.  Standard camo fatigues and AT dog tag.  The shoulder holster is more of a rubbery material than some of the earlier repro holsters that were harder plastic.

Overall the figure looks great.  One final note on the *******, mine have more of a dark brown look to them rather than black.   So standing on the shelf next to my Fan Club repro Commander and the Foreign Adventurer he looks just enough different to not be someones twin.

I've never been a big fan of tabbed browsing but after using it for a couple weeks I'm getting used to it.  I haven't had any performance problems with they system in general but it has locked up and crashed (not the whole system though) at least twice since 11/7...IE6 didn't crash twice in the previous 6 months.

I don't care for the button placement either.  The refresh and stop buttons are just oddly placed.  They should be next to the back/forward buttons IMO. 

I haven't spent a lot of time with it yet to see if any of that stuff is customizable but I'm thinking probably not.  Microsoft doesn't seem to build in that level of user friendly customization.

But, if you guys don't like the interface in IE7, wait till you see Vista!!

Can I have your space in the line then? ;)

You can have my place in line as well. 

This is the only Kate from the UK that I need.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: New Line has license for 'The Hobbit'
« on: November 20, 2006, 11:38 AM »
I can't seem to find the article right now, but thought I read that MGM owned the rights to produce the film but New Line had the distribution rights?

If so, wouldn't that make it MGM's decision when picking a director and not NL? 

Unless part of an agreement between NL and MGM, in order to get the movie made, put more control over that sort of thing in the hands of NL.  Sort of like a licensing contract...NL would license the production rights from MGM to make the film and then distribute under their own distro rights. 

I don't know about all the behind-the-scenes legality of getting a Hobbit film made but I do know one thing; I'm NOT happy about the possibility of seeing a Hobbit film that's not directed by PJ.

I've been picking up the Titanium vehicles.  I passed on the 2" Galactica and Home One but did get the Ultra Galactica.

If they made a 3.75" line of figures for the new series I'd probably buy them but I haven't picked up any of the larger scale figures that are out now.

Isn't Torchwood the weapon they've been referring to in the second season of Doctor Who?  Iit has it's own series in the UK? 

I'd love to see it if so.  Come on, Sci-Fi, import it!
