I keep cardbacks, inserts, ship boxes, playset boxes, and 12" boxes.  Much like OCB, I enjoy looking through various cardbacks (whenever the mood strikes).

Quality over quantity any day, in my books!  Ranks right up there with being friendly and civil, and getting to actuallly know your collecting comrades here!  

I agree Matt.  However, if conversations are limited to a "non-politcal" nature, how can you really get to know someone?  I mean, it's nice to know what someone's favorite color is, or which movie they really like, etc., but to really know someone, you will eventually have to touch on "political" subjects at some point.  Personally, I prefer to make "friends" with someone based on moral principles rather than one based on which figures we really like.  ;)  Don't worry, as long as I'm here, I'll "play nice," but I just thought I'd make a point.  

Saga '02-'04 / Re: San Hill

San Hill is a tad bit off but I can't put my finger on exactly why, still a great figure along with Poggle who was at the top of my me wantee list forever.

It's the likeness.  Hasbro did a poor job with San Hill's face.  Oh well...

And yeah, Dooku is pretty lame, especially with that huge hand of his.  I still like the set, but I have a feeling that I'm going to like the second Geonosian War Chamber set a lot more.    

what would it be?

Anyone pick up anything today?

I picked up The Last American Virgin for $9.99 at Circuit City yesterday.  I originally went to Best Buy around noon, they were sold out!  The guy checked in the computer and told me that ALL of the Best Buy locations were sold out (which is why I ended up going to Circuit City).  It's a great, classic 80's flick.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Screen Scenes

Next, the holo-projector in the Jedi can't tell who it is.  It's just a robed figure.  In fact, it's almost like a mini-mini version of the holographic Darth Sidious that came with Lott Dod and Count Dooku.

I found both sets today at Target, & I thought the exact same thing: the holo-fig is miniature!  It's like 1/5 the size of holo-Sidious.  At any rate, I passed on the Jedi Council screen scene.  Of course, I didn't think twice about picking up the Geonosian War Chamber SS.   ;D  I'm still a bit disappointed with San Hill (particularly with his face), but the screen scene is cool nonetheless.  Now bring on the second wave so that I can complete my Geo War table.  :)

It's a three-way tie between Rune Haako, C-3PO, & Darth Maul from the Tatooine Showdown cinema scene.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Favorite 80's Teen movie
« on: July 31, 2003, 04:40 PM »
Err..I think some of yous guys are a wee bit confused.

Just what I was going to say Cory.  By "teen movies", Force Guy is referring to movies about "teens" (like American Pie or Clueless), not movies that you watched when you were in your teens (though there could be some crossover between those two subsets)!   :P

That said, teen movies were/are just a silly, fun, guilty pleasure of mine too.  So here's most of the ones I'll get sucked into when I come across them on the tube (most of which have been listed here already)...

  • Some Kind of Wonderful (Lea Thompson)
  • Can't Buy Me Love
  • Fast Times at Ridgemont High
  • Breakfast Club
  • Ferris Bueller's Day Off
  • Weird Science
  • Sixteen Candles
  • Pretty In Pink

I was just waiting for someone to mention Can't Buy Me Love.  :)  I'm still waiting for someone to mention Just One Of The Guys, The Heavenly Kid, Reckless, or The Last American Virgin.  Of course, maybe there's a reason that they haven't been mentioned yet.    :P

And Jedi Mac is right.  By "teen movie," I mean 80's movies that were about teens.   ;D

I'm a huge fan of John Hughes and the 80's teen movie genre in general.  Ah, the memories.  So how about you?  Which 80's teen movie was/is your favorite?
