If you visit the The Green Dragon, there are now scanned pictures up of some new LOTR figures (courtesy of Toyfare Magazine).  Included are Armored Merry, Gondorian Armored Faramir, and the King of the Dead!

I think we got some transfer player from your team there Brian - North Carolina.  I forget his name, but he transferred out in 2001 I think, and has been kicking some booty for us so far.  Dropped five 3's the other night I believe.  With UCLA's hoops history, expectations are usually very high, which is why Steve Lavin got canned despite going to like six Sweet 16's during his tenure.  Championship or bust in Westwood.  Just probably not this year though...

Yeah, I think that guy's name is Brian Morrison.  Not too bad a player, I hope he does well even though he left Tarheel land.  He can shoot the rock pretty well...and if I remember right from last year, he has some ups too for a shorter player.  Good luck to him, as well as the Bruins :).

I'm not sure how many college hoops fans we have here, but I thought I'd start a place to discuss the season, your team, and eventually March Madness.  In Nebraska, we've never been much known for our hoops, which is probably why I have been a North Carolina fan since I was in junior high.  It has been rough the last couple of years, but hopefully they are turning it around a little this year.  So far so good (5-0).  I'm not expecting a National Title, but it would be nice to just be back in the Tourney :).  Good luck to all of your teams out there!

I really doubt I would have been able to avoid as much of the LOTR figures as I have if they were in the 3 3/4" scale...I would have been all over those I'm guessing :).

Looking at the various pictures of this super articulated clone online, and today reading the review posted over at GH, this figure really looks amazing.  The combination of likeness and articulation has to make this one of the best Star Wars figures ever made.  It can be a neutral figure, but at the same time is capable of a number of poses.  Plus, it sounds like it has all the articulation necessary (let's face it, we're probably not getting articulated fingers, toes, etc. like the Marvel Legends this scale).  It would be nice if all Star Wars figures could be made in this fashion, particularly the main characters and army builders.  It might be a little more difficult to hide the articulation as well on figures like Han, Luke, Vader, etc....but it would be nice.  Hopefully we can at least get a Stormtrooper done in this fashion...and while they're at it, they might as well use that body to make a new Stormtrooper Han and Luke :).

Other Toy Lines / What is Your Favorite Figure "Scale"?
« on: December 8, 2003, 03:27 PM »
I'm not sure if this is the best forum to post this in, so if its not, feel free to move it :).  I was just curious, which "scale" of action figures do you feel is the best, or your favorite?  Do you prefer the 3 3/4" scale of our beloved Star Wars, or the 6" scale that is more common in many other figure lines?  There seems to be advantages of both scales, such as the space/vehicle/playset advantages of 3 3/4", and the added articulation (and in some cases, detail) of the 6" scale.  Personally, I really like the 3 3/4" scale, because that is basically what I grew up with between Star Wars and GI Joe, and it allows more vehicle, playset releases, and is easier to display overall I think.  I do have some 6 inch-ish scale things, a handful of ML, LOTR, and MOTU well as some of the Unleashed line...and in the case of Unleashed, it seems that the likenesses are often done a little better, although I think hasbro does a pretty good job overall with the 3 3/4" scale liknesses.  Anyways....what scale do you like the best?

We're headed to the Alamo bowl, but I can't complain.  We had a decent season after last year's debacle, and it should be a good matchup with Michigan State.  Hopefully we'll play well.  Kind of a strange year in BCS land again, with USC kind of getting the screwgie.  Of course, any of those three teams (OU, LSU, USC) would have a gripe if they weren't in the title game.  At least USC has a chance at a share of the title.  That system just doesn't quite work right :).

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: New Anakin pic on Hyperspace

I saw this pic last week, and I agree...this is how I imagined the pre-Vader Anakin.  I think that Hayden looks perfect in that pic...very battle worn, the glove is awesome, and it does look like he has "bulked up" quite a bit from the last movie.  The movie is looking good so far... :)

Happy Birthday (or Belated Birthday to some) to all the recent b-days.  I hope you had great days, and God bless you!

« on: December 5, 2003, 10:36 AM »
I was really happy to see that Swami report as well, I hope it all turns out to be true.  I've personally really been hoping for an Endor Han resculpt (I wasn't overly happy with the 2002 version, like many others).  I hope they do it up like Jesse James suggested....lots of articulation, working holster, soft goods coat, etc.  I'm also very happy to hear about a General Lando, another needed resculpt.  Madine and any Ewoks are always welcome as well, hopefully they use this two pack to release a couple of the vintage ones that haven't come out yet.  I'll be looking forward to (hopefully) confirmation and, in the future, pics of this wave.

Kubricks / Re: Kubricks and Minimates

Yeah Matt, I got an e-mail from Tim as well, I'm really sorry... I didn't realize that it wasn't supposed to be posted, and I hope I didn't cause anyone here or anywhere else any trouble because of it.  Again, I'm very sorry.

Kubricks / Re: Kubricks and Minimates
« on: December 4, 2003, 03:54 PM »
I don't follow the mini-mate stuff really, but I assume these are sold domestically here, right - unlike my beloved Kubricks?  Hmmm...  I don't collect any other lines, but I love LOTR and if this particular mini-mate line expands a bit more I just might start looking into it...

I agree Matt, they do look kind of tempting to me too.  One of the reasons I haven't picked up more LOTR figures (only 2) than I have is because I don't have the space...especially for the 6" figures.  These little ones might be a little more tempting :P

Kubricks / Re: Kubricks and Minimates

Although I don't collect any kubricks or minimates (although they are really cool), I did run across this while visiting the Green Dragon this morning.  Maybe its old news, but I think its the first time I have seen these:

Edit:  Had to remove the picture, sorry for any trouble everyone.  And sorry to Art Asylum as well.

Kinda cool I thought, sorry if it is old news though. :)

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends
« on: December 3, 2003, 05:12 PM »
I just had a question for those of you that collect Marvel Legends.  Although I only pick up the X-Men from this line, space is still at a premium in our office (where the Star Wars collection resides).  I have my ML figs out too, but am running out of space fast and thought about putting the bases away to save a little bit of room.  Do you display your with your bases, or without?  Some of them look pretty nice, so it is nice to have them out, but they do take up a little more room in some cases.  Just curious what some of you do :).
