Watto's Junk Yard / Re: A thread about concerts.
« on: April 18, 2005, 12:51 PM »
The very first concert I ever went to was Sha Na Na in Allentown PA when I was 9 or 10.

In highschool, I saw the Monkees with Weird Al opening and the Hooters doing a benefit concert at a local High school. The Hooters concert was memerable because they played one of my favorate Beatles songs, "Hide Your Love Away."

In collage I saw Genesis in 92 and Yes twice during their Union tour. I also saw Meatloaf and Paul MaCartny, but missed Pear Jam and Bob Dylan when they came to town. Genesis is my favorate band, and when they started "Dancing on a Volcano," I could have died a happy boy.

After I moved to LA, I got see a lot more shows:

Pink Floyd
Rush - twice
The Who at the Hollywood bowl. - I'll never forget Pete Townsend's acustic "Drowned."
Yes - three times, once at a 500 person concert at Tower records, they signed autographs.
The Moody Blues at the Hollywood Bowl
John Williams at the Hollywood Bowl - I do this show every year.
Peter Gabriel - Up tour, I had 3rd row seats.
Bare Naked Ladies and Alanis Morrset
Spocks Beard - twice
Porcupine tree - at the house of blues

My freind also plays in a Genesis cover band, so I go to his shows every other month. They're excellent.

But I have to say, the best concert I've ever gone to, and may ever go to in my life, was last year by a cover band called The Musical Box. They reproduced the 1974 Lamb Lies Down on Broadway tour with props, slides and costumes on loan from Genesis. The music was spot on and the vocals were uncanny. It was quite simply an amazing concert and ahead of it's time for 1974.

Added Lava Vader

KBZ can vouch for me as he saw my army grow on another site, but I have 43.
Luckily, some were gifts, some were from sales, some were on clearance and some were from trades.

Can I send both forms and UPC codes together in the same envelope with one receipt, or am I screwed?

Well, it looks like we have Hasbro's Answer:

I purchased more than one Star Wars Early Bird Kit on one receipt.  Can I use one receipt to send away for multiple kits?

Yes, you can send in for multiple kits together using one receipt as long as each kit you are sending away for is listed on that receipt. Also be sure to send in each original UPC code and certificate per kit.

Sounds like you should be OK putting both your redemption forms in one envelope...


Thanks Jeff! I bought 2 on-line for me and my neighbor, so I was wondering about that as well.

Has anyone opened one yet? What stickers come with it? The original twelve? If so, could this mean that the first 12 of the '06 line will be the original twelve?

The movie, definately the movie.

I would love more accessory packs. Just give us existing accesories, no need to make up anything new.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Holo Yoda?
« on: April 13, 2005, 03:32 PM »
Interesting tid bit I stummbled upon because of the Holo Yoda's. On Sunday 4/10 I tried o get credit for the Yoda I bought with a $25 purchase at MM and was denyed saying that corporate said they wouldnt allow it. Figuring that the manager was giving me a hard time, I went again on Monday to try again as was told that they couldnt because they dropped their price guaranty policy. I called Customer service to confirm, and that did go into effect on Monday the 11th, the day after I asked for the credit.

CS told me to talk to the manager from Sunday and ask for the credit and if they refuse, to call them back.

I'm kind of a "one of everything" type a guy, but dispite that, I won't be picking up any of the Wholesale club packs.

A little tidbit about my name, Anton -

Invariably, when I hang out with a new group pf people, I get a nickname. Don't know why, might be because I'm a likable guy. ::). Anyway, my good friend George dubed me Anton because he was to lazy to say Anthony all the time, and I wouldn't accept Tony, so it stuck.

What were some other nicknames you ask? Ant, Squire, Tone (when I was going by Tony,) Swordy (becasue my last name is Sword), and Rusty (again, because of the Sword thing.)

Further trivia, I was strongly leaning toward going by the screen name Blix in honor of the character from Legend.

I have two daughters, 5 and 1 1/2. Every day I am reminded of the awsome responsability it is being a parent and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I look at it as my way of having some part in shaping the future of man-kind. ;)

Hey Herbert!

Glad to see another familiar name from RS. Thanks for all your thoughts over in the RS Feedback thread, I think you got to say alot of what many were to afraid to say.

See you around,

I'm going to have to echo a lot of what Ruiner said, I couldn't beleive the welcome I got the day I registered. There is a sincere feeling here that your voice counts and that if you do step over the line, instead of getting flammed, you get reasonable and pointed counter view. The government should work like this. :P

And I have to say that I think the the OPT in or Get out rule is kind of silly, I mean, how many people would actually take the time to opt out? I think that RS lost just as many e-mail recipients from the bannings as they would have if they would just give us the option to Opt out and stay in. Most of those people over there are kids, they don't pay attention to that kind of thing. To be honest, I would not opt out, but it annoys me that I don't have a say in the matter if I wish to remain there as a member, and that hurts more than getting an e-mail that I can block if I wished.
