HE DID IT!!!



This man is YOUR World Heavyweight Wrestling Champion.

In a sport that is often contrived and of course pre-determined, never has there been a more exciting moment for me as a fan than this moment as THE BEST wrestler in the business today is finally declared the World Champion!!

Having met the guy myself a couple times, he's always seemed to be a true down to earth kinda guy. Having seen the work ethic he has shown over the years in Japan, Mexico, ECW, WCW, and the WWE, no one is more deserving of being called the Professional Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion more than....

CHRIS BENOIT!!!!!!!

Full results of WrestleMania XX with some notes from me about the show are below....

John Cena defeats the Big Show for the US Title (Quick match so as to not show the faults of either guy)

Booker T/RVD retain the RAW Tag Titles over Dudleyz, La Resistance, and Cade/Jindrak (ugly match which should have been a tables match or something, had almost no heat)

Christian over Chris Jericho due to Stratus-ference (Christian's biggest win ever, Trish's heel turn looks sweet, Jericho showing he isn't like one of those kliq-diqs)

Evolution over Rock-N-Sock Connection when Orton pins Foley (The right call based on all the build-up, even though the only over guy for Evo was Flair :P)

Torrie/Sable over Stacy/Jackie in what became a lingerie match (We want puppies!!!)

Chavo Guerrero retains the Cruiserweight title in the Cruiserweight Open after pinning Rey Rey at the end. (Poor pacing and set up of the 1 on 1's, right decision for who won though)

Goldberg over Brock Lesnar, afterwards Austin hits stunners on each of them (The crowd hated both men pretty much, though Lesnar got the You Sold Out chants way too much that it slowed the match)

Rikishi/Scotty 2 Hotty over TWGTT, APA, and Bashams to retain Smackdown tag titles. (TWGTT were robbed!!!)

Victoria over Molly Holly to retain Women's title and shave Molly bald (for real too)

Eddy Guerrero retains the WWE Title by pinning Kurt Angle. (Sneakiest world title retain in history, the right decision too)

Undertaker defeats Kane, as Taker returns with Paul Bearer and a modern version of his original gimmick (Old-school reborn rocked!)

CHRIS BENOIT wins the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP by making HHH tap to the Crossface. Oh yeah HBK was around somewhere bleeding like the stuck pig he is. (Greatest thing ever, Benoit is the man, and HHH actually acted like a man by taking the job cleanly)

Eddy Guerrero congratulates Chris Benoit and the show ends with the two World Champs in the ring celebrating.

Best Wrestlemania EVER!!!

Star Wars Universe / What actress could portray Mara Jade?
« on: February 29, 2004, 02:47 AM »
The other night in the FFURG chatroom several people and I were discussing what actresses could be good fits to play the role of Mara Jade if sequels to the OT were ever done and they were based on the established EU. It was an interesting discussion and I thought I'd try to get a wider scope of a view on the thought. Got to keep in mind that the actress should be someone who if she isn't a natural redhead would look the part of a redhead like Mara who looks very similar to a typical Irish woman (don't go thinking I'm being stereotypical with that statement, I've got a bit of Irish in me  :D).

Some suggestions I heard were:
Monica Belucci, Angelina Jolie,  and Nikki Cox.

The first two didn't seem like they would be a visual match for Mara with a dye job, and Nikki Cox just seems to flighty to me to be in an action role that would be typical for Mara.

My choice was Charlize Theron, she has both the look and the presence to pull the role off and if you have ever seen her as a redhead, all I can say good gawd almighty!  ;D

So what do you think, if we were to be blessed with EU-based Episodes 7 thru 9 what actress could easily fit the role of Mara Jade?

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Hardest Video Games To Beat
« on: February 26, 2004, 01:10 AM »
Pitfall...

I swear to God, that damn game had no ending.  Everyone said they "knew" someone who beat it.  Nobody ever beat it.  It never ends...  It just goes on, and on, and on, and on, and on...  Jumping scorpions, climbing up and down ****, swinging on vines, jumping on alligators...  

It's neverending.  I always wanted to see what the hell he was running around doing.  What the purpose was that Harry was loose in this jungle.

Most Atari 2600 games didn't have an ending, in fact the only games I've ever beaten on the 2600 were Vanguard and Jungle Hunt. And even though they had a last level, they never really end, the game just starts over with the levels just being harder the 2nd time around. I never heard about an ending for Pitfall, but I had people swear to me that the Empire Strikes Back game had an ending. For years I would try to reach it, but couldn't do it. I was bummed out to find that there never was an ending. Another 2600 game though that I believe had an ending was Raiders of the Lost Ark, I could just never reach it, such a difficult bugger.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: New List at Rebelscum
« on: February 26, 2004, 01:03 AM »
-Toy Fair/Convention figure...  Ugh.  :(  The thought alone is depressing.  I just hope the Fan Club offers it.  I think a 3PO or Stormtrooper makes sense, vac-metalized and all.  What Say Ye?  

I say....
* CorranHorn slaps JJNT with a big trout!!   ;D

I'm thinking perhaps the Naboo 4pack if it isn't Maul vs. Obiwan/Quigon with someone else to the side, its going to be something like the firefight in the halls of Theed Palace. Perhaps Amidala and a Naboo Guard vs a Battle Droid and Droideka.

And I don't believe the TIE Fighter one bit, we've been hearing about an accurate TIE for years now and every chance Hasbro has had to release one, they've screwed us over! If anything the TIE mentioned is probably the "exclusive" Darth Vader TIE that TRU.com has listed. Don't believe the hype on this one, Hasbro isn't giving us what we want in a TIE anytime soon. Besides wouldn't releasing 2 different TIEs in one year cause confusion in the market between the VOTC TIE and an Accurate TIE?

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Wanna see something cool?
« on: February 25, 2004, 04:02 AM »
Wow that is a sick amount of Clones. That's taking army building to a whole other extreme. Too bad though for any collectors in his area, looks like he got every clone a big city would ever get....

Vintage Kenner / Re: Memories....
« on: February 25, 2004, 03:57 AM »
All my money went to girls, sports and beer.   :)


Got you further than me.

I have never owned a vintage figure.

Of corse, wont SAGA be considered vintage when Im older like Morgbug or some of the other vets?

Kevin

Never!!! Vintage is Vintage 4 Life!!!  ;D

The Kenner line from 78 to 85 will always be considered the "Vintage" line. The best thing to call what we refer today as the "Modern" line (POTF2 '95 thru Saga '04) could be "Post-Modern".

But ahh yes the memories of the vintage line, when I had no clue what was coming out next, what was the hottest toy, I just knew if it said Star Wars on it I had to have it. My only real fond memories of vintage SW and prices is the clearance stuff I found post 1987. At one mom and pop toy store in Chicago you could find carded ROTJ or baggie ROTJ for 3 for $1. At a TRU I once grabbed 3 Desert Sail Skiff minirigs and 3 Radar Laser Cannon's for a buck a pop. And another time a POTF Imperial Dignitary for $1. And ya know what I did with them all? Opened em up and played with them! Oy!! Good times, good times...  :D

Bloody hell is the guy who's link you posted a moron? He's asking people to pay a BIN of $72+ US for a repro blue snag when you can get a real one for around the same price? Fools and their money.....

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Fan Choice #6
« on: February 25, 2004, 03:47 AM »
I can't believe they'd RE-release that thing and not just cast an Imperial Officer in grey and pack in the blue box accessory.

Yeah but that's what we call common sense. You know hasbro doesn't have any of that.  :D

Well it looks like I was wrong, the community has changed its mind about getting these figures re-released and just hates this whole FC #6 poll. Lets just be careful though, too much complaining over this process and hasbro just may scrap the whole FC concept.

Yeah what Matt said.

Matt, the only reason GNT isn't posting there is he can't transfer his post count anywhere else.  ;)

Randall, one of the authors, called his findings "depressing stuff" and warned that it might even be too late to prevent future disasters.


"We don't know exactly where we are in the process. It could start tomorrow and we would not know for another five years," he told the paper.


Ummmm if we don't know exactly where we are in the process how can they make all the claims of stuff happening in 2007 and 2020? What a load of crock! Right now there are tons of doomsday believers reading this article and wanting to stock up on supplies. Well ya know what I say to the apocalypse? Bring it on jerky!!!  :)

Other Toy Lines / Re: Transformers toys
« on: February 24, 2004, 02:54 AM »

Tracks looks a little dodgy to me, so far. Not much like his G1 namesake at all, is he? Well, except for the red face...

Yeah Tracks doesn't look as streamlined as his G1 counterpart, but I think overall it's a cool looking bot even with the fugly yellow.

Hasbro's announced that the Mazda RX-8 Alternator will be known as Camshaft (one of the G1 Omnibots). So there ends the rumors of Jazz being the RX-8...

A quick reminder guys, the deadline for the February Casting Call of Coalition Troopers has been extended until Feb. 23rd. You can always send in customs to be displayed after the announced deadline of any Casting Call, but for this particular CC the deadline of Feb. 23rd is specifically for the contest that will be involved.

Happy Customizing!

Star Wars Dioramas and Displays / Re: Modular Death Star
« on: February 24, 2004, 02:50 AM »
Muftak,

Again an oustanding job. The 5th level came out great and really rounds out the whole Death Star. Did you make the tractor beam control area from scratch or did you utilize parts of the Kenner DS set?

Happy Customizing!
