I don't know if anyone caught this 1/2 hour special on Cartoon Network...but it was pretty funny.

Already up at Amazon.

Not 100% sure what this game will be like, but Force Unleashed for the Wii is pretty cool.

Celebration V: Orlando / C V Build-A-Droid swap meet

I'm hoping for a little help here.

Since I cannot go to C v, I need some help with some BAD parts:

-Head and middle leg of the blue astromech from the ROTJ wave
-Left arm and right leg of the YVH droid

I have various droid parts I can send to who ever is willing to help out.

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
« on: July 19, 2009, 05:43 PM »
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.

Wide Shots:

Close Ups of the shelves.  They are either a major ground battle or Imperial ships (with scattered figures):

Carded Figures that I display:

Not sure if mixing vintage and modern is the best idea, but I like this display on top of my vintage cabinet:

Queen's Starship.  I have pilots in every vehicle:

Still have the cube cabinet for medium sized ships and random figures on top:

The corner display:

My NASCAR, Jabba's Palace, Complete Galaxy, M&M's and 25th Anniversary & Disney:

My desk credenza.  Features my MR Mini Sabers, Celebration Passes, Potato Heads and Assorted figures:

My ever faithful trashcan:

The center table where I have my Rebel Hangar, Jedi Figures, Sith Figures, Assorted Aliens, Politicians, Medical Scenes, Pod Racers and Mini Rigs:

Closet, where I display my Sideshow, Marmit, RAH 1/6 Scale figures, MR Sabers and Costume items and plush figures:

Just outside the closet, Slave 1s, US Stamps (Framed) and my Jedi Academy pennant:

Across from the Closet, I have my movie posters...with room for a few more:

Jocasta's Reading Room / Fate of the Jedi
« on: March 13, 2009, 04:49 PM »
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?
