I was shocked I left it too, because Roboto was one of my fave toys in my youth. But, I can't keep sending money to a company like Mattel, especially with their attitude.

Haven't seen the new Aragorn/Brego set yet.
I searched through every Pelennor Aragorn at TRU to find the best one. I also found an armored Eowyn with the hair not glued on correctly. I'd hate to be the guy who buys that one.

So, really, how do you feel about Amazon? :) j/k

I think even ebay's prices would be cheaper than these.

Yeah, it does look like Jabba Glob. Provided they paint it reasonably well, we might come out OK. Have to see better pics.

I'm wondering if these are replicas or real authentic vintage. Strange, to say the least.

I found all but Leia, Darktrooper, and Spacetrooper at after-Christmas clearances in '98-99. I eventually got the Troops through the FC, and it wasn't until 2001 that I finally broke down and ordered Leia through Brian's Toys. Of course, they failed to tell me that the card would have a big Japanese sticker on the back. Dicks.

Dude! That's neat. I've got to dig those things out now and try it out.

I only found one clean one. I opened it gleefully. I ended up with three more Hustler-reader ones. Never have seen another clean one.

Episode 1 / Re: The Original "Midnight Madness"

I went to MM99. It was actually quite orderly, considering the stories I've read here. I just bought Maul, Qui-Gon, and Obi-Wan that night, and I was the first guy out of the store. When I walked to the register, they were like "Is this it?" I was like "Yeah, especially when I'm on a limited budget and you're charging $7 a crack." I ended up getting the first three series before the movie opened.

Then at school the next day (it was my senior year of high school :P) I got flak because I was in the footage they showed the next morning on the news. It was slightly embarrasing, but I didn't care, because I was going to graduate in ten days and never see those people again.

For MM02, there wasn't a TRU opening for it, and I was working 3rd shift. I went after work and found lots o' goodies. My first figures were Yoda, Anakin HD, and the red Clone.  I also had every figure available before the flick opened.

My hunts have been wallet-strainingly successful in the last couple of weeks, and I couldn't be happier. Or broker. :)

I have two, actually. One doesn't work anymore, and the other I picked up at a pawn shop for $15, MIB. I about **** when I found it.

I have it hooked up right now while my X-Box isn't. Go figure.

Does anyone have a problem with keeping Aragorn/Brego standing? Mine keeps falling over.

Oh, I bet the .org is even a more vile place to be right now.

I found Roboto tonight. Too bad it didn't happen three weeks ago, when I might have cared about this find. I left it, something I've never done with a MOTU figure.

Meh. That Gandalf is saddeningly inferior to the one packed with Shadowfax. But this version does hold Glamdring better than previous ones, so that's something. And at least it's white this time. Ah screw it, it's not inferior, I just think the head looks funny.

I had a CJ-7 that was nearly twenty years old when I got it, and it was an absolute nightmare. But, when it worked, it was a blast to drive.

Talked to the people who gave me the loan. They said I could keep my same interest rate, but my monthly payments would go up slightly. Eh. I wonder how bad Allied will knock me for insurance, since I'm not 25 yet. Thieves. >:(
