Okay - I'm in this year.  I've got all my reciepts and will add them up periodically.  Rough Estimate, off the top of my head, not including tax:

Animated Clone Wars figures $6.00 x 13 = $78.00
POTC Cantina Wave - $7.00 x 6 = $42.00
Clearance 12" VOTC - 2 x $7.24 = $14.48
Clearance Lego Millenium Falcon - 1 x $55.00 = $55.00
Clearance Lego Mini's - 2 x $1.73 = $3.46
Clearance Lego Mini's - 1 x $2.00 = $2.00
Clearance Lego Cantina Set - 1 x $10.00 = $10.00
Clearance Lego X-Wing - 1 x $10.00 = $10.00
Clearance Cloud Car Pilots - 6 x $2.00 = $12.00
Clearance Hoth Trooper - 1 x $1.18 = $1.18
Clearance VOTC Stormtroopers - 6 x $7.00 = $42.00
Clearance VOTC Stormtroopers (Walmart) - 4 x $5.00 = $20.00
Misc Clearance OTC - 15 x $2.00 = $30.00
Unleashed Aura Siing - 1 x $15.00 = $15.00
Sneak Preview Wave - 8 x $6.00 = $48.00
Darth Maul with Sith Speeder - 1 x $5.00 = $5.00
Darth Maul Deluxe (E1) - 1 x $0.50 = $0.50
Loose Action Fleet X-Wing - 1 x $1.00 = $1.00
Loose Action Fleet Misc - 3 x $3.00 = $9.00

Rough Total 3 weeks into the year:    $398.62

Also, if I just spent 85 dollars on shelving - specifically for my star wars collection, with another 75$ or so to go, does that count?

I don't get people who buy the iPod mini when you get 5 times the storage space for $50 more

Pretty neat stuff

Because it's 1/8 of an inch slimmer and is way more stylish.  Duh!

Yeah, but someone who wasn't in good shape might not have been able to fend the animal off.   :P

Will Eisner has passed on.

List updated.

I bought every stormtrooper I saw.  They were here for a grand total of four days at retail and have not reappeared since.  Never mind clearance prices. :-\

I guess I just live in a good area for them... for every 3 I bought, I left 2 on the pegs - and I have 35.  I bought them over the course of probably 6 or 7 weeks and saw them quite regularly.

And Paul managed to find a similar amount in the same basic area.  They were pretty much everywhere.  Not Orn-Free-Taa-everywhere, but certainaly abundant.

Happy Birthday Scotty!

Nice work - there was an out of the way Walmart that as of a little over a week ago had about 7 more stormtroopers collecting dust...  I think i'll go down at lunch tomorrow on the off chance that they're still there.

There are websites that will charge you like 50 bucks plus shipping - you mail them your CD's, they rip them all and load them onto your IPOD and mail it all back to you.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: New Years Plans?
« on: December 31, 2004, 09:59 PM »
I'm back home in So Cal for the holidays and am going to the Galaxy Theatre in Santa Ana to check out a special New Years Eve concert featuring Dick Dale and the 5,6,7,8's!

Fingers are crossed that Quentin will be somewhere in the crowd!

Now if the 5,6,7,8's were playing I'd go - as it stands, New Year's doesn't do jack for me.  The girlfriend and I are going to watch a movie and go to bed.

This is a horrible event, more than likely the worst to date in our life times.  :'(

In terms of natural disasters you'd be right - in terms of man-made disasters you'd need to remember Rwanda and the Sudan.

I work with a guy who's from Sri Lanka - he tells me his father's beach-house was destroyed - but fortunately for him his family is accounted for.  Talking to him for 3 minutes yesterday made this whole thing seem 10 times more real - and less like a media extravaganza.

There isn't even anything that can be said - I can't believe any of this is real.

The estimated death toll has risen to over 125,000 - just in the time that this thread has been around, 9,000 more confirmed dead. 

How horrible.

Well, my 'they come in 3's - who's next' comment shouldn't be necessary.  I forgot that Reggie White died a few days ago - theoretically, that should be all until the next wave.

That explains why it didn't come up in the Google search.

Jerry Orbach - being added now.

That's two that I actually enjoyed in 2 days - crappy.
