Now if they can make it backwards compatible, I might just buy one.

We could use some of that Water here in Colorado Springs.

Other Collectibles / Star Wars NASCAR collectibles

Hey all.  I've been kind of bitten by the collecting bug again, but since Hasbro has had nothing to offer, I went back and started upgrading my NASCAR stuff.  Nothing too big, but I went and upgraded my 1999 1:24 scale Jeff Gordon Episode 1 car to the Elite version (found it on Ebay for $12.99 + modest shipping), and gave the original one to my son to play (at 2 1/2 he's into cars now).

I also started looking into the 1:64 scale (Like Sheldon half the size....double the fun!).  I've managed to pick up a John Andretti episode II car at that scale with an opening hood and trunk, with an Episode I Jeff Gordon version on the way (probably in today's mail) to compliment the 1:64 scale cars from the Cheerios promotion back in 2002.  These are nice because they already come in their own collector's case!  The tricky one to get is going to be the Jeff Gordon Episode III car in 1:64 scale.  I don't know why this one is so rare, other than he won the race when driving that car.

I've also purchased collector cases for all my 1:24 scale cars.  It's forced a bit of a re-arrangement of the cars, but they do look nice.  I'll update pictures soon.

Sorry for your loss Jesse.

I saw Bastilla's wave probably 4 or 5 times?  At least remnants of it, but only saw her twice and a couple EB Troopers.

That's 4 or 5 times more than I saw it.  Shame, I really wanted to add the Bastilla figure to my Jedi shelf.

I saw it today and I thought it was better than the first one.  It definitely had some annoying plot holes (some mentioned by Bill and a few more that weren't), but then I remembered this is Star Trek (famous for remodulating something at the last minute to save everyone) coupled with Damon Lindelof (arguably the laziest writer alive) and you get what you get....a decent popcorn flick.

I just hope that When JJ Abrams screens Episode VII, the lightsabers aren't causing so many damn lens flares!

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Sequel Trilogy Speculation

We'll see what Abrams can do.  The first new Trek wasn't horrible.  Decent popcorn flick.  But the plot was a mess, and it was pretty empty.  I've read mixed-to-negative reactions to the second.  I don't know if I've seen any of his projects where he's gotten really great performances from marginal actors.

That I blame on Damon Lindelof.  That guy is the most over-hyped "writer" going.  He should change his name to McGuffin.

Saw the  movie today and thought it was excellent.  I did get the feel that they could be wrapping up the Iron Man single movie series and just have him in The Avengers sequels.  I think I'd be ok with that, even though I thoroughly enjoyed all three IM movies.

Star Wars Universe / Re: Are you ready for yearly Star Wars films?
« on: April 22, 2013, 12:36 AM »
I got a couple local buddies with 4 and 5 year old boys...  I envy them.  It's good timing.

I think that's the guys who should be most excited are the ones with lil kids.

I have mixed feelings about this.  The part that thinks it's great is in line with you Son will be old enough to go to these movies and I'll be able to take my son to see Star Wars in the theater.

On the otherhand, I'm afraid that oo many people are going to have their hands on these, I wasn't fond of GL just surrounding himself with yes men, but too may people having input might be just as detrimental.  Also, with so much coming out, it might actually be too much.

She was the female lead - married to Leonidas.

And unlike Game of Thrones...she has a nude scene.

Funny how it has the same electronics....for te Hoth battle.   ::)

I have to say, Cersei may be one of the biggest shockers.  Maybe it's the hair color just throws me off, and don't get me wrong I think she's cute on the show, but she's f'n smoking off it.  Way hotter in her natural hair color and all dolled up in modern clothes.  I'm kinda floored.

Go watch 300 again.

I actually like the Mickey Jedi Starfighter...but I've been kind of a sucker for the Disney stuff.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Disney Kills LucasArts

I think the last rue good game Lucasarts put out was Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy.  Fun games to play with excellent storylines.  The Dark Forces games are truly the best to come out of Lucasarts.

I'm glad that they're bringing in new blood because 90% of the people they just brought over from Woodbury is nothing more than walker bait!
