Wow. Elrond. About time he showed up again.

Too bad I've spent all my toy budget.

Oh well. The shipping notice I received said that my Frodo is sitting in Roanoake, VA right now.

Ugh. Country music. Proof that God really does hate us and wants us to suffer as much as possible in our short time here. Johnny Cash is the only artist to come from this genre I can stand.

It's like I've always said in actual social interaction: If you're a country music fan, your life is probably as empty and pathetic as it deserves to be.

If we who don't like hip hop make snarky comments about it, it's because we don't like it, not because we're ignorant. No amount of rolleye graemlins will likely change that either. I don't mean any offense here. No flames; the site's name isn't Rebelscum after all. :)

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Your Best of 2003 (So Far)

I'm in the minority in that I have nearly everything from the 2003 collection, but here are my faves:
Padme DFC (especially once I did the headswap)
Coleman Trebor (I'd like to think this was the standard for the line instead of the exception)
Wat Tambor
Aayla Secura

Repacks. They were a good idea for RFT, Imp. Officer, and the Teebo wave, kinda lame-ish for the rest, especially Jango.
R2 Booster rockets. Icky.
Barriss Offee. I didn't mind the pose as much as the open mouth. Damn, I hate bug-catching mouths of my figures.

They look like customs to me. Lousy ones at that.
To each his own, I guess.

The link doesn't work, but I read this already.

Looks like Affleck came to his senses. About time.

I'm nearly positive that the Prologue Bilbo has the body from the articualted Pippin from the TTT line. It has a new head and the Ring sculpted into his hand. Also, he features Sting, the one that came with the Frodo from the Elven boat pack. But, it's still a cool figure, and it's a shame TB decided to short pack it.

I think I'm going to rent 'American Psycho' again and see this smarmy bastard in action. Doesn't hurt that it's one of my favorite movies that I haven't bothered to buy yet.

Check your local Suncoasts, if ye have them. I hit the jackpot, finding every figure released in the ROTK line thus far, including Prologue Bilbo. Since I just ordered TWF, I couldn't really afford Gandalf and Aragorn, but I got Bilbo and Armored Eowyn.

I'm on quite a plastic high right now. :)

That's probably true. Now they need full cases of Prologue Bilbo and Crossbow Uruks. Yeah, baby.

Oh yeah, baby. I hope they don't end up out of stock or something. That would really bite.

I'm glad I only had to pay $20 instead of $150 on ebay.

Of course, this could be the store that had those cases of Twilight Frodo cooked up for 'em. Oh well, whatever.

Finally, WB makes a decent choice for Bruce Wayne/Batman:

I'm not much for the comics (really haven't read any but the Hush arc) but I love the first two, maybe three movies. I'd like to see where this one goes, what with Christopher Nolan directing and co-writing.

Ick. Always songs I hate that end up stuck in my head. That 'song' from Ashanti and Nelly makes me want to pull a Van Gogh and cut my ears off. Such dreck.

Don't worry, mosnab, by the time you have the available scrib, I might still have the figures. I posted the list over at, and for a bunch of folks who complain about not being able to find these things, they didn't go for 'em, even though I added some Star Wars and LOTR stuff I needed to the list. They wouldn't even buy 'em. So I think the the .org is just full of a bunch of hot air.

I typically ignore store employees except for cashiers, who I have to at least say hello to. I get the feeling that some employees hate collectors, but after seeing a feeding frenzy of Hot Wheels a couple weeks back, I honestly can't blame them.

I'm cutting down on hunting, because soon the Christmas season starts, and I really hate hunting then with all the accusory stares from the folks MisterPL mentioned.  Strange folk they are...

I'll take an elderly person's cart to the corral. I'd hate to see them get hit by some jackass on his/her cell phone.
