Darth Tater Head

Pretty cool looking. Might be a neat "novelty" item to have.

Watto's Junk Yard / Mikey D is now Daddy D
« on: January 13, 2005, 07:50 AM »

We've known for about a month now, but there is always that waiting period until you decide to tell family and friends.  We broke the news to our parents at Christmas.  Both mothers cried hysterically.

Jen is almost three months along and the baby is due at the end of July.  Her and baby are doing great.  She doesn't want to know the sex, whereas I do.  I just have to work on that.  ;)

Both excited and nervous at the same time. 

Modern Classifieds / WTB: Kubrick
« on: January 4, 2005, 09:58 AM »
I'm a virgin in this whole Kubrick craze, so my wants are pretty extensive.  I would like to get this sealed in baggies / boxed.  I would also like to get as many as possible from one source to save on shipping.  I have pending deals for series 1, series 2 and the three common figs from series 3.

Series 2
chase Indy  ::)

Series 3
AT-AT Driver
Chase Han

Early Bird  ::)
TRU 5 pack

I might also be interested in other chases (Bobas, Band member, vinyl Jawa, Logray, etc.) and carded if the price is right (and I can afford them) but they're not my priority right now.

PM here is the best way to get a hold of me.

Hell of game last night to start the 2004 season of what could possibly be a glimpse of the AFC Championship game.  The Pats win streak is now at 16 in a row, three short of the all time record. 

The D-line needs work (Ted Washington going to the Raiders leaves a huge - no pun intended - hole).  But they found a way to win, like they always do and that's all that matters.  And to do it against the Colts is a plus.  This loss may get into the Horses' heads and affect them.  They'll always be thinking that they can't beat the Pats.

Well, it's here.  The Yanks - Devil Rays are playing as I type over in Japan and Opening Day in the States is here in 5 short days.

Who you got to win?  What teams will surprise people this year?

I think, much like last year, the Red Sox and Yankees will beat the sh!t out of each other once again.  And I also believe if one of them falters, then Toronto could be right there lying in the wings.  

My predictions:

NL East:  Phillies
NL Central: Cubs
NL West: Giants
NL WC: Houston

AL East: Red Sox (got to give the love to the hometown boys, plus I think they have the better pitching staff)
AL Central: Royals
AL West: Mariners
AL WC: Yankees

Surprise teams:  Toronto and Baltimore should make the AL East interesting and could possible contend, especially if the Red Sox or Yankees don't do as well as expected.


Modern Classifieds / DVD wanted
« on: February 27, 2004, 07:39 AM »
Does anyone have this dvd still sitting on their store shelves?  Due to my complete ineptitude and laziness, I never got around to picking it up and now, of course, I want it.  I know it's OOP, but figured it might be sitting on shelves in other parts of the country.  If anyone can help me out, please PM.  Thanks

That's right.  If you're a child of the 80s, everyone's favorite gross out trading cards are making a comeback.  Read all about it here.

I had fun collecting these back in the day.  In fact I even went as far as designing some of my own.  I had a composition notebook filled with my own creations, such as "Bloody Mary" (a vampire), among others.  Man, I wish I knew where that notebook was.

What do you think?  Another 80s property trying to recapture old glory ala GIJoe and Transformers geared towards the twentysomethings that were their original customers or are they trying to snare the GenXers of today?  I think its the former, kids now a days have seen alot worse.  I must admit, I'm mildly interested in checking these out.

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends Wave 5
« on: July 9, 2003, 09:17 AM »
Just thought I'd bump this up now that Wave V has been officially confirmed (I expect pics next week at SDCC)

  • Colossus
  • Red Skull
  • Nick Fury
  • Sabretooth
  • Blade II
  • Mr. Fantastic
  • Silver Surfer with Howard the Duck
Colossus will the be the first one I buy when these start hitting stores.  I've always been a fan of the gentle Russkie and his appearance was one of the many highlights of X2, IMO.

Well, its about 13 hours away from the new book being released so I figured a thread was in order.  There was some rumblings about this book in the "What are you reading now" thread, but figured this book, with all the hype, warranted its own thread.

I won't be picking up the book at midnight tonight but will go out to Target tomorrow morning and pick a copy up.  (I believe its on sale for $14, which is more than 50% off)

I still have to finish the book I'm reading now, but will start HP & tOotP soon after that's finished.

Anyone else as excited about this as I am?
