Watto's Junk Yard / Re: How Many States Have You Been To?
« on: September 5, 2023, 10:31 AM »
First update in 20 years  :o.  Went to Minnesota over the weekend to see some little known band Pearl Jam.  Even met some dude named Scott in a bar.

States I actually done something in:
New Jersey
New York
Rhode Island
New Hampshire
Arizona (ok, it was only the Hoover Dam side, but it still counts right?)
South Carolina
North Carolina

Total: 20

States I've either driven through or had a layover in an airport:
West Virginia

Total: 4

Out of Country:
Canadian side of Niagara Falls

Really need to spend some time West of the Mississippi to knock some states off the list.

This show is based off a book about the Targaryens and their house’s rise and fall in Westeros

Yep, Fire and Blood.  It's written as an in-universe history book so it's a bit dry at times.

The meat of the story happens next season(s).  If they follow the book closely, **** should hit the fan. And based on this season, I don't expect there will be much deviation. There's something that could rival the Red Wedding in shock value and a battle that could be up there with the Battle of the Bastards coming up.

I don't think you're supposed to root for or pick a side.  They're all a buncha pricks and ********.

I only bought this set for R3-T2; anyone interested in the others?

Kubricks / WTB Kubrick

After years of not really buying Kubrick, I've been slowly buying things I missed the first time around.  So if you're looking to sell off part of your collection or have extras, hit me up.  I know most of these are not exactly common figures and might be a pipe dream without resorting to ebay, but I figured it was worth a shot.  Not looking to break the bank, but I will pay a fair price.

*Tion Meddon
*AT-ST Driver
*Uncle Owen
*Jorg Sacul (loose or carded)
*Blue Star Snowtrooper (loose or carded)
*Spirit of Yoda (loose or carded)
*Shadow Guard (loose or carded)
*Holo Darth Maul (loose or carded)
*2-1B / B-Wing Pilot / Droids C-3PO / Luke & Yoda / Snowtrooper 5 pack
*Clonetrooper Red / Jango Fett / Padme / Super Battle Droid / TC-14 5 pack
*Darth Maul / Speeder boxset
*Darth Vader / 501st Trooper boxset

Managed to get the two common astro droids from the same seller for about $25 shipped each.  After searching for these at all possible locations when I was at DW a couple of weeks ago and coming up empty, I figured that's not too bad of a price.

That Chopper droid is a bitch to find on ebay though.  I should be happy with just having the OG Chopper and not worrying about any redecos that may come along.  Not sure I'm there yet, but it may be soon.

I don't give a **** about the BB droids.

Last I’d heard they’re sold out at wdw, but not dl

I'm pretty sure this is true.  I've been at DW all week and I didn't see these anywhere in parks or Disney Springs.

So yeah, this just got announced.  I'm all in.

Figures.  Just got mine off ebay for about $27 shipped.  After waiting on the rainbow droid and getting bit in the ass, I didn't want to take any chances.

Did you see it and actually decide to wait on it?  I feel like it was already going for $50 on Ebay by the time I even heard about it.

I was seeing the Pride Droid in the $35 range (which I gladly would have paid if I knew then what I know now) when they were first released.  I always try to stay under $25 shipped for these droids and for the most part, have been successful.

For those wondering about free shipping, D23 members get free shipping for a limited time -

I'll keep an eye out for it and maybe we can group order if it pops up.  I can check with my Disney contact too.

*EDIT* Reached out to my Disney contact on FB to check stock and prices.  Anyone else looking for these or just Dave and me?


Kubricks / Re: Recent Acquisitions
« on: January 15, 2020, 08:12 AM »
After years of not really collecting Kubrick, I've been going back and trying to fill in the holes in my collection (mostly chase figures).  Managed to win the Hoth Rebel Soldier, Imperial Commander and the black R2 unit for a good price a couple of weeks back (lost out on Owen from the same seller).  Since then, I've found Gree and Shaak Ti for a good price.  I got my eyes on some others that I might bite on as well.  Hammerhead, AT-ST Driver and Tion Medon might be pipe dreams, as those are few and far between and the prices are still a bit rich for me.

My short spoiler free review of Endgame - it was perfect.

Will discuss more once others have seen it.

If you've ever wondered what the Bat-Dong looked like, well, your prayers have been answered:

(Spoiler - it's nothing like Toad with Yeti pubes...)
