Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What are you guys doing this summer?
« on: July 1, 2003, 01:32 AM »
I'll be working, squirreling away cash for my big move to LA to attend the New York Film Academy's satellite at Universal Studios. Until that time, I'm thinning the collection so I can keep it at my parent's house, writing more and hopefully better stuff, and finally starting my band that I've decided to name Chew Electric Death, Snarling Cur! I've finally gotten rid of the nagging pain in my fret hand and learned some songs in the process. Now, to find like-minded goofballs and conquer the world! Of course, provided there isn't another band out the named like mine. will know us as CEDSC! in case the name was too long.

Wow, great stories, dustrho and chuckles.  :)

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Your Break Up Stories

Ick. I hate relaying my breakup stories. I only wish I could beat the living **** out of both the girl and the dorkwad she was cheating on me with. But, whatever. They aren't worth it.

Conventions / Re: Anyone going to San Diego Comic Con???
« on: June 28, 2003, 06:34 PM »
If anyone going could hook me up with a Keldor, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'd pay cost/shipping and throw in a carded Ephant Mon to the kind soul who picks up one for me, please.

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends

I love the X-books. I never bothered to read DC comics, because a guy with awesome powers, a square jawline, a beautiful love interest, and a killer bod is something I can't relate to. Neither could I relate to a millionaire who dresses in tights.

I could relate to Marvel's angsty characters because my life has been a living hell since age 10, much like many of Marvel's characters. Misery loves company. I'm sure Batman and Superman have their own problems, but their lives aren't totally in the s***ter like Wolverine's.

These bastards used to fill up my answering machine with offers to sell my vinyl siding. Considering I live in an apartment building, it's beyond stupid.
I switched to a cell phone exclusively and haven't had single telemarketer call. I'm still going to sign up, but I'll wait a bit until it isn't being accessed a million times a minute.

A Do Not Spam list would be awesome, and bring this world one step closer to Utopia.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What else do you collect?
« on: June 26, 2003, 01:19 PM »
Modern and vintage Star Wars, just about everything but 12"
Vintage RAH GI Joe RAH, pretty much from 82-89
G1 Transformers and PVCs, the only collection I'm equally obsessed with as I am for Star Wars.
Lord of the Rings, loose and carded. Haven't decided on Armies of Middle-earth yet.
Marvel Legends, but only the characters I like or know something about.
Kiss figures, but McF seems to be done with those. Looking forward to Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix figures.

Also, I collect vinyl albums from lots and lots of bands. Something about the album art. It's just too damn small on CD booklets. Especially the UK version of Hendrix' 'Electric Ladyland.' Hubba.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Top 5 Hotties
« on: June 25, 2003, 01:22 PM »
1) Natalie Portman
2) Audrey Tautou
3) Eliza Dushku
4) Sarah Michelle Gellar
5) A girl at work currently rocking my world.

Honorable mention goes to Drea de Matteo, from the Sopranos. She was hosting VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the last 25 Years and she showed off her AC/DC tattoo, and I really liked it. A lot.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Wars toys are OUT!!!
« on: June 25, 2003, 12:23 AM »
I heard something about a street date for Clone Wars at Target, might anyone know when this is? Are they just waiting for the Christmas reset?

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What are your collecting goals?
« on: June 24, 2003, 01:29 PM »
I'm trying to find Yoda and the Younglings now, as well as a bunch of Unleashed figures I foolishly didn't order online, seeing as how not a single store here carries that line anymore.

I want to take a sick day today and not do a damn thing. Too busy at work, gah, I hate it.

I was considering using some vacation time, but I need it for when Return of the King comes out in December.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Movies that make you cry
« on: June 23, 2003, 01:19 PM »
Schindler's List
Saving Private Ryan
(I think I should stop watching tear-jerking Spielberg films)
 And Braveheart, at the end.

Also, Boromir's death in Fellowship of the Ring. Also Gandalf's line "All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you."

I'm not sure if it's real or not, but it's a good idea. Since Freddy vs. Jason is finally getting made, why not this one?

But if it's pre-production, I doubt costumes and sets like those pictured would be ready to go already.

Other Toy Lines / Transformers

I don't know if there's a thread about this or not, but here goes.
Anyone else collect these here? I'm a G1 addict. Anything G1 that Hasbro reissues, I buy, even if I have the Japanese counterpart. I just found the TRU exclusive Prowl, and thirty dollars later it was sitting on a shelf next to the rest of my G1 stuff.

I might post pics of my stuff later. I'm hoping they don't have to be on the 'net as they do when trying to post at RS. ::)
