I wish they'd gone with "small head" Han.

Watto's Junk Yard / It's about damn time!
« on: June 18, 2010, 12:02 AM »
Someone has created a "working lightsaber".

So who is going to add this baby to their collection?   :D

Check it out!

The throne environment will be sold separately, but looks pretty cool.  I'm expecting it to look very similar the Thrawn's command chair.

Pre-order is Friday 18 December.

Grand Admiral Thrawn 12" Figure!

I might just have to buy this.  I have every other Grand Admiral Thrawn figure....easy focus collection!

The Original Trilogy / Deleted Return of the Jedi Scenes

I went looking for the sandstorm scene which they made action figures for, but I don't think I've ever seen the entire scene.  I know it's out there, but it's not on Youtube....unless I missed it.

Does anyone know where on the internet this scene is?

Watto's Junk Yard / Warriors
« on: April 13, 2009, 02:08 AM »
This is sort of a shameless plug for a show on the History Channel, but it's actually really good!

I don't know if any of you have seen this show before, but this Green Beret, Terry Schappert goes to various historical spots and talks about famous battle, famous warriors throughout history.  So far he's covered the Mayans, the Vikings, the Samurai, the Germanian barbarians' victory over the Roman Empire, the British Knights and chivalry.  All with a pretty unique viewpoint.

The cool part is when Terry is not doing this show or out doing whatever his unit does, he's my brother's neighbor up in NY.  I met him briefly this past Christmas, before the show aired, and I can tell you that he's not acting at all in the show.  Real nice guy.

Check it out here.

Collections / My Collection Updated 8 Feb 11
« on: March 27, 2009, 07:46 PM »
Finally took some pictures of my collection room, and uploaded the images.  Of course, there have been some minor changes since then...hazards of a continuous work in progress!   :D

The only carded pictures I display.  The McQuarrie figs, TF Vader, 25th Anniversary Fett and R2, Jorg Sacul, CIII Vader, Theater Lukes, SDCC Holo Leia, Maul with Infiltrator, Sith Lords 2-pack and Lava Vader and some other exclusives.

The Central portion of the room is a table which I set up a rebel hangar on top.  Best way to display the BMF Falcon.  The shelves have various collections of loose figures, Jedi, Sith, a Rogue's Gallery, medical, politicians, concept vehicles, podracers and a Jabba themed one that turned into a miscellaneous.  Yes, I know I should've dusted first!   :D

I flanked the table with my cinema scenes and battle packs, along with both package variations of the 300th Fett.

Jocasta's Reading Room / Fate of the Jedi

The next chapter of EU is about to begin.  Looks like there will be a serious Anti-Jedi backlash after the fall of Darth Caedus.

Book 1 due out 24 March

Book 2 due out 23 June

Book 3 due out 25 August

I'm looking forward to reading these since the Legacy of the Force series ended so quickly.

Vintage Kenner / Restoring Playsets and Vehicles
« on: December 25, 2008, 09:59 PM »
Hey Y'all,

I'm in the process of shipping out all my old vintage playsets and vehicles but after 20+ years in my parents' basement I've noticed a few problems:

-lots of dust in the corners and grooves
-the foam on the Dagobah and the Trash Compactor from the Death Star playsets have really deteriorated.
-The cardboard pieces of the Death Star walls are really frayed at the edges and would probably need replacing.

Anyone know of a cheap way I could replace the foam and cardboard cheaply?  I'd also like to print out hi res images instead of purchasing anything.  Also, what's a good cleaning technique?

Watto's Junk Yard / The Stargate Thread
« on: July 11, 2008, 06:48 PM »
I'm looking forward to the new Season of Atlantis tonight.  Also, it's been kind of fun revisiting all the episodes of SG-1 with my wife.  I got her into Atlantis, and now that we have some time, we've been watching all my SG-1 DVDs.

Just to add a little geeky trivia, we can see Cheyenne Mountain from our deck.   :D

Vintage Kenner / A good, Complete Vintage database
« on: July 6, 2008, 10:21 PM »
I was trying to find some good pictures of some vintage playsets and was having trouble remembering some of the really good vintage database sites out there. has a lot of good information, but it isn't complete (no good minirig pics etc).

What others am I forgetting?

*edit*I remembered toysrgus, but they moved here.

Watto's Junk Yard / Bad news for British costumers?

The Lucas legal bureau is at it again.

I'm not 100% convinced that Team Lucas will win out this time.

Power of the Jedi / Dejarik Chewie question
« on: March 18, 2008, 08:18 PM »
As I set up my collection room, I'm setting up ships and putting pilots in them and such...with larger ships like the Falcon, I'm setting figures up inside like mini-dioramas.  My question is will the Dejarik Chewbacca fit in the place of the Dejarik board inside the Falcon?
