Way to go on catching up!

I think I'm only missing the Eopie and some Unleashed figures, but I don't collect everything Hasbro puts out.

My uncle has quite possibly the biggest private party in the state. Every year he does it, and it gets bigger every year. Fun to be had by all. The week before Halloween, he runs a haunted house in the same building as the party.

My siblings and I help with this endeavor, along with his friends. It's a great way to screw away your weekends from August until the end of October.

I'd do away with bigotry, intolerance, and competition. And get rid of crime too.

"This one goes on the gooch!"

Man, that was funny. Where do you get the idea to stick that on your balls anyway?

HMI (Hasbro's Missing Integrity)

Name: Ben
Where he be: Waterloo, IA
Occupation: writer, well-educated slacker, bum, whatever
Age: 22
Status: Single, then not, then single, then not. Single now.
Children: None they can pin on me.
Pet: cat named Peregrin, dog named Jarrett.
Musick: Kiss, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix in any form, and scored film music.

I was introduced to Star Wars by way of Return of the Jedi, that being in theaters in a rerelease in 1984. Loved it, and saw Empire and A New Hope on VHS shortly thereafter. Of course, like any child who saw these movies, I had to have the toys. And, here we are. I collect Star Wars, LOTR, Marvel Legends, G1 Transformers, and occasional McFarlane, Star Trek, GI Joe, MOTU, and Buffy figures. Also collect comics and DVDs. I play the guitar. Sort of.

I keep the moniker around because I like it. Hasbro really doesn't bother me that much any more.

My favorite skit was the one where that dude went to the hardware store and tested one of the empty toilets. What a jackass.
Before they made it to the store, the guy s*** his pants and the cameraman tossed his cookies.

I can't believe these hosers got rich off this stuff. Right place at the right time, I guess.

Damn. Just, damn.

So they're going to be statues then, right? I'd pick up the Schoolmaster.

I think I've found something to sink my former MOTU dollars into.

Is Gonzo only available in that funny suit with the cannon?

I'm also looking for the following figures:
Kermit w/out tux
Crazy Harry
Miss Piggy

Thanks, OCB. Can't wait for that figure.

I bought them at an online store for $10 each a few months after they came out, along with a Commtech Stormtrooper. Never have seen the droids at retail.

These were based on the movie? I thought they were from the book. Stupid me. I didn't look at them because I was going apesh** for new Star Wars stuff.

I'm not exactly sure who R1-G4 is. Does anyone have a pic?

Thanks in advance.

I cracked and bought the Ringwraith on Horse set. It's pretty wicked, but it's hard to screw up something as simple as this.

I like the Frodo/Sam/Ringwraith set. That'll probably be my next purchase. I wanted to buy Gandalf, but he isn't exactly white. Is it so hard to paint a Gandalf the White figure white? It's taken two companies and neither of them can nail it.

If anyone else is looking to buy a car, I suggest looking at Hyundai. I've driven my 2000 Elantra 60,000 miles and haven't had a single problem with it. I've changed the tires, oil, and all filters at regular intervals.

I'm buying one of those groovy Santa Fe's when I'm done with this one.

'oooooo, she's a little runaway...'

I think that's how it goes, anyway. I heard that song on the radio and now it's stuck in my head.
