I hopes it's true as well. We still need a nicely articulated one.

Hasbro reps must work for the government.

Royal Guards, Clone #6, Padme, Anakin #2 and C-3PO. There are other, but these I see less of.

Question about doing new molds -

Were all the big Gi-Joe sets that came out in the last couple of years re-hashes? Wasn't the mobile command center new?

Bottom line, if they can make new Gi Joe sets, they should be able to do Star Wars.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Hasbro to Offer Direct Sales?

Regardless if they sell Star Wars figures, this will be a great experiment and one well worth watching.

Isn't $10 for 5 clam shells a bit expensive? I don't keep my carded stuff in clam shells anyway. Takes up way too much room.

The thing about the second wave is that 2 out of the three sets are going to fly off the shelf (and I don't mean the two that fly in the movie ::).) The Vader and the clone trooper/vulture droid will do very well leaving poor Yoda warming the pegs.

I used to play the Sax. Haven't picked one for a while now.

Getting off the Middle Earth series, all of which I read the for the first time between the release of Fellowship and The Two Towers...

I just finshed reading 2061 for the second time and stated on 3001 for a second pass. I think I'm going to read the odessey series every couple of years. After 3001, I'll be reading Stephen King's: On Writing and then Dan Brown's Angels and Demons.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Official Movie Thread

I finally saw Sin City this weekend and loved it! I'm not so much into gore or violence or comic book movies for the sake of their respective genera's. I'm just into good movies and this was that in spades. I was very surprised that I found myself liking the Micky Rourke segment the best.

Next up, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Thanks for showing them to us all! You have the guts to show us what we all do with the figures when no one is arround. ;D

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.
