Newbies / Been too long...
« on: July 17, 2007, 09:38 AM »
Hello one and all Defenders...

Some of the old timers may remember me, I used to hang out here a lot back in 2002 - 2003 but work, life, family stuff has taken over my life for the past several years.

Now that my son is getting older, and a big SW fan it has rekindled my interests in collecting again, so I hope to drop in more often.

Nick (my son) and I spent the weekend setting up a few glass display cases of loose figures in the family room, which reminded me how darn hard it was to make those AOTC figs stand-up! 

Anyway, that's it.  I don't really have a collecting focus or anything (up here in Canada you take what you can get right?) but I hope to have my new home theatre room filled with as much loose SW stuff I can lay my hands on.  I'm an opener lol!  Love the smell of fresh plastic!

Thanks for reading, hope to chat with you all soon.

The Original Trilogy / EP IV Video Clip...
« on: March 30, 2007, 12:20 PM »
Hey Guys,

Long time no talk...  I could list a bunch of excuses but suffice to say work, and family has been taking up most of my time added to the fact internet axs at work is significantly monitored, and where we live now the fastest I get is 28.8 KBPS!!  Anyway  I hope all my old SW buddies are still around and can help me out...

I am looking for a place to download a specific video clip from ANH.  The clip I want is when Luke is lightsaber training on the Falcon.  I need the part where Luke complains about not being able to fight without being able to see, and Obi-Wan goes on about feeling the force around you...

Anyone know where I can download that?  Or anyone able to rip it form the DVD for me???

The closest I found is this clip, put it is a little too late in the movie.

Anyone??  Help me Jedi Defenders.. you are my only hope. ;-)

Watto's Junk Yard / Did I see this here????
« on: April 28, 2004, 01:39 PM »
A while ago I saw a post with a link to some guy selling pictures of a cargo ship named the Millenium Falcon.

Was that on this board???

Does anyone remember???



Watto's Junk Yard / How many here live far away from family?
« on: November 25, 2003, 11:24 PM »
How man people here live far away from your family, and how do you deal with it?

The reason I post is, my Dad has just sort of semi-retired.  He bought a cabin in the mountains about a 10 hour drive from me.

Now, I know 10 hours isn't that far, but I have little kids and the chances to see their grand dad have now dropped to maybe x2 / year. :(

I do have a lot of family here too, but I have a pretty good relationship with my Dad, and I guess I am having a hard time dealing with the fact he is leaving.

I'm 30 years old... you'd think it wouldn't be a big deal.

Anybody experience this before?  Any tips.



Watto's Junk Yard / Car Insurance!!!
« on: November 20, 2003, 11:21 PM »
Sorry, I just have to get this off my chest!!

I hate insurance companies!!!!!!  This year so far my car insurance company took three months of payments within 3 weeks of each other, and last month took two payments again!!

Ever try to speak to someone about getting your maney back (I am paid for the year, and they took an extra payment anyway) GOOD LUCK!

But this is the kicker!  I got my renewal form in the mail tonight!  I was expecting an increase.. as there always is.  They want to increase my premium by 115%

That's right, more than double!  Accidents... NO!  Major moving violations ... NO!  One speeding ticket (14 Km over the limit - no demerit points) DWI... NO!,  New Car... NO!

WTF is that about!!  

I am pretty sure its because the new provincial government elected last month promised to take control of the insurance industry "to stop price gouging" and they are jacking everyone for what they can.. while they can!

If I can't find a lower rate - I can't afford to put the car on the road - simple as that!

Its crazy..

/end rant - Sorry, but thanks!

ANyone else have this problem with crazy rates?  What's it like in the US?

« on: October 15, 2003, 10:38 PM »

Watto's Junk Yard / Luke Skywalker is my Pharmacist
« on: October 2, 2003, 09:09 PM »
Thought you all would find this kinda odd.

Hopefully he can use the force to help me get rid of this damn cold!


Watto's Junk Yard / Any Geocachers here???
« on: September 15, 2003, 10:45 PM »
Subject line says it all.... unless you don't know what Geocaching is, read here:

GEO Caching


If yes why??

I just find it kinda odd, is all. ;)

Myself I like decide one board and post there.  

If its a Canada related issue, I'll post on

If it is vintage related and very specific I will post on RS, but if vintage related but just sort of general discussion and I don't feel like reading 20 replies of "Its amazing what you will find on the archive", or "try the search function" I will post here.

General DIscussion OT stuff, here because I like the small group.

Anybody else??


Star Wars Action Figures / Need some customizer's help.
« on: June 26, 2003, 10:39 PM »
Hope this isn't too OT .. crosses fingers ..

OK, so I know its not Star Wars, but I need some help.  Don't ask me how, but my 4 year old son managed to pull the head off his Spiderman & Friends Fireman Spidy fig!.

Any ideas on how to get it back in??

I tried just forcing it in, and I can't find any obvious screws or anything to open the fig?

Any tips??



Vintage Kenner / Hoth Leia.. which hand?
« on: June 19, 2003, 10:54 PM »
OK, so I just picked a Hoth Leia to add to my ever growing (not as fast as I would like ;) loose collection.

Which hand is she supposed to hold the gun in?  

Neither one of the hands hold the gun well, it just kinda dangles there.

There is no damage on the fig either... anyone else have this prob?

Any tips?



Other Collectibles / Press Kits...
« on: June 5, 2003, 08:50 PM »
I recently saw some vintage and modern press kits on eBay.

I would love to sameday pick them all up, they seem really cool!!

Anybody here have any of collect them?


Hey Hasbro! / Does Hasbro have a warranty??
« on: June 5, 2003, 11:54 AM »
I mean, I know these are just toys, but still.

The "Return to the point of purchase" thing doesn't apply mainly because most of the times the figure / vehicle you purchased is no longer availiable a few weeks after you bought it!

IMHO Hasbro should have some sort of way to get products of theirs that are OBVIOUSLY defective replaced somehow.

The recent "My Nexu is cracked" thread comes to mind.

Though I can imagine the logistics nightmare of it all...

Just a random thought, anybody else??

Scott :)
