Vintage Kenner / Re: Original Vintage I have found
« on: April 13, 2005, 04:49 PM »
All of my vintage playsets and vehicles are in my parents' basement.  I removed the batteries a long time ago and have none of the boxes, but all the foam for the Death Star and on the Dagobah playsets are still in great condition!

I go and check out all the stuff when I go home on leave.  ;D

12" Figures / Re: New 12" Vader??
« on: April 13, 2005, 04:40 PM »
Ah...thanks so much for your help.  I can't snap together Lego's very well, so a model kit is out of the question.  Looks awesome though, gives me an idea on starching one of my many Vader's capes....I'll have to look into this.

Thanks again!!

Instead of starching the cape, you might want to try sewing in a wire around the edges of the cape.

I have one of these Luke figures and I think it's great!  The only problem is I have trouble getting his belt on.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: happy tree friends?

Happy Tree Friends have been around a lot longer than Aaron Ralston's ill fated hiking trip...and a lot more funny!

A question for you, Matt.  How many diecast Nascar SW cars are there?  I assume you're talking about 1/24 scale.  I only have John Andretti's car and the three 1/64 cars that you could get from a cereal promotion when AOTC came out.  I know Jeff Gordan is the main driver to have a SW paint scheme, but I refuse to buy any of that tool's merchandise.  Any other drivers with SW paint jobs (either previously or upcoming?)

Mikey, as far as I know, there's the Jeff Gordon Episode I car.  The John Andretti cars you have for Episode II, and the Jeff Gordon, Elliot Sadler, Dale Jarret, and the concept Promo Darth Vader car for Episode III.  I do stick with the 1:24 scale because of the detail, but I also have the three from the Cheerios giveaway back in 2002.

Interesting choices from everyone else...as I knew they would be.  I'm also glad to see that I'm not the only one to find the question a bit difficult.

The Happy Tree Friends have been around for a while...very funny stuff though.

They put a bunch of episodes on DVD and they were on sale at Best Buy not too long ago.

Hey JoshEEE.  I went to check again and Dustin was in the process of removing me as I was replying to your post in the Feedback thread.

And there I was, inviting you to call me names.  Now I'll never know what you were going to say.  ;D

I think the only thing I'd say negative about you JoshEEE is that I disagree with your politics.  Albeit, I might do that with a little more pizazz! ;D

Sorry...I really didn't mean it like that.

I just don't think his flat out deleting any posts in his forum that are even mildly critical of him or the recent actions over there is a good idea. You can't pretend something that's wrong will fix itself if you just get rid of the complaints.

Facism and Communism learned those lessons the hard way.

I wasn't trying to make a direct comparison to Hitler, however, sometimes this medium doesn't show me at my best.

BTW....I'm STILL on their lists! ::)

Not only that....he deleted the thread as well!  Didn't Hitler and Stalin try this same course of action?????

Other Collectibles / What's the Favorite part of your collection?
« on: April 12, 2005, 06:19 PM »
I was askedhis by Yodafan at a small BBQ at my place and I really had a tough time answering it.  Every part of my collection has it's own little appeal to me, otherwise I wouldn't have it, but still, what is my favorite???

My vintage figures are really special to me since they were what got me started in this whole crazy hobby.  I don't collect vintage anymore because I think it would ins some small way make the vintage figures I owned and spent countless hours playing with somehow less special.  I'm sure plenty of you disagree, but hey, that's just me.

My collection has evolved as this hobby has in the past 27 years.  I guess what really appeals to me in my collection are the odd pieces that most people and the casual collector might not have.  Stuff like:

-The Diecast NASCAR cars.
-My Movie Posters (which look great now that they're all up on my living room wall!)
-The odd exclusive figure like Theater Luke, Toy Fair and Lava Vader, Holo Yoda and the Holiday Sets....just because they are different and geared toward the collector and not necessarily the kids.


So what's the stand-out item(s) in your collection???

All of you who have asked to be removed from the mailing list (banned), might want to check to make sure they have.  I still have not been....guess Philip thought I wouldn't check or something and he could keep sending spam.

Barada, Don't even try to post a farewell, it'll probably just get deleted.  I wasn't very critical at all, and mine was just flat out deleted.

It's really that sort of treatment that made me want to leave, not the two e-mails.
