i just received an email from cloud city that john kellerman, the author of that awesome book, is selling his entire collection through them. doesn't give any reasons. i can only imagine what kind of prices they are going to be asking for some of that stuff...

Watto's Junk Yard / madden 2005 vs. espn nfl 2k5
« on: August 12, 2004, 11:39 PM »
so, out of the two new football games for this year, which do you prefer? i bought espn nfl 2k5 (for xbox), and i admit that the $20 price tag (actually, it was $15.88 @ target) had alot to do with it. but i also rented and played madden 2005 (for ps2), and i have to say that i just think the espn nfl 2k5 is a better game. better gameplay, better graphics, better features... just all in all a better game.

The Prequel Trilogy / prequel races in the ot?
« on: August 4, 2004, 08:45 PM »
so, since george started introducing an ass load of new races in the prequel trilogy, what happened to all of them in the original trilogy? were all of these races extinct by that time? wiped out during the clone wars? or do you think that he will just digitally add some of them for the dvd release? or maybe he'll do that in a few years and have an "extended extra special edition" of the trilogy?

just off the top of my head you got:

chalactan (depa billaba)
zabrak (darth maul)
cereans (ki-adi mundi)
lannik (even piell)
dorin (plo koon)
quermian (yarael poof)
thisspiasian (oppo rancisis)
iktotchi (saesee tiin)
nautoloid (kit fisto)
togruta (shaak ti)
all the pod racers

there's a whole bunch of races of creatures and characters introduced in the pt not in the ot. what happened to all of them?

aside from the obvious general grievous (happy matt???), what are the chances that we will be seeing some of the new characters introduced in the clone wars cartoons and comics actually appearing in episode 3? the first (most obvious one) that comes to mind is the arc trooper... what do you think?

and what about some of the "villains", like durge or assajj?

Watto's Junk Yard / happy tree friends?
« on: August 3, 2004, 07:41 PM »
anybody out there like the happy tree friends? if you have no idea what i'm talking about, click the link and watch some of the episodes online. they are pretty short. most of these are from volume 1.

i got hooked on them a while back, they are just soooo amusing. i picked up the first dvd when it came out:

then the second:

last week, i scored the third volume. more insanity:

and today, i find this on

so naturally, i had to order it. i had to. it was an exclusive at last weeks sdcc (see matt, i didn't know about that one, otherwise i would have asked you to pick it up for me  ;D ). i hope they make a whole line of figures for this show. awesome.

Original Trilogy Collection / dagobah luke paint variation?
« on: August 1, 2004, 01:13 AM »
i just noticed on my dagobah luke that he has teeth sculpted inside his mouth (on the upside down head), but they are not painted (on my figure). was this released with painted teeth and without (kinda like the vintage lando)?

Watto's Junk Yard / what's your favorite scary movie?
« on: July 31, 2004, 03:11 PM »
anyone who looks at my dvd collection will be able to see that i'm a hardcore horror junkie. i like all kinds of horror films, from the golden age classics like frankenstein, dracula, and the wolfman, to the silver age films like american werewolf in london, halloween, friday the 13th, etc. i'm a fan of just about every sub-genre of horror - slashers, monsters, aliens, mutants, zombies, vampires... it doesn't matter.

for more modern horror, i've been turning to the japanese market for the past several years, as all the good stuff seems to come from there. the ju-on series (soon to be re-made for an american audience, starring sarah michelle gellar - ugh),  ringu (not that p.o.s. re-made for america), the tomie series... i could go on and on.

but if i had to narrow it down to one film, one single film that scared the bejesus out of me so bad that i'll never forget it, it would have to be the exorcist. i remember seeing it when i was fairly young one night when the parents weren't home, and being completely freaked out. i was about 6 or so, and the images have stayed with me since. of course, i've seen it again and again since then as well, but i'll always remember the first time.

even if you're not a fan of the horror genre, you have to have a favorite scary movie... what is it?

The Original Trilogy / top 10 classic trilogy moments
« on: July 20, 2004, 11:04 PM »
okay, got the newest issue of insider today (#77) and was reading this top 10 classic trilogy moments. i agreed with a little more than half, but not in the exact same order. the other four... not so sure. so, here are my personal top 10 moments, along with the insider rankings (where applicable).

10. the crawl/ tantive 4 chase (insider ranking #10) so i agreed with this one, because it kind of opens up the saga and shows who seems to have the upper hand. the rebels are using small ships to battle the evil empire, and the giant star destroyers.

9. lando double crosses han and the rebels (insider ranking - not ranked) this to me is an important scene, because again it shows how powerful the empire is, and how scared people are of them (and darth vader in particular). even though it appears in esb, and you already know vader and the empire are evil, it's still an important point to me.

8. han kills greedo in the cantina (insider ranking - not ranked) this is an important scene to me, because it shows (or at least it did show at one time  ::) ) that han solo really isn't a goody goody, and he will take action when it's neccesary to do so.

7. ben feels a disturbance in the force when alderaan is destroyed (insider ranking - not ranked) ben feels the death of millions through the force when the planet is blown up. this to me shows the scope of the force itself, that he can feel all of those deaths even though he is no where near the planet. it shows how all encompassing the force really can be.

6. ben sacrifices himself to vader to save luke/leia (insider ranking - not ranked) shows how much ben believed that luke would be the saviour - the greatest jedi master of all - the same way that he watched anakin's power grow before he fell to the dark side, but ben can sense that luke must survive if the galaxy has any chance to. and of course, saving the galaxy is more important than one's own life, at least to a true jedi master.

5. destruction of the first death star (insider ranking #4) okay, so my pick for this one is pretty close to the insiders, but i just don't see as being as important to the overall story as they did. but it's just off by 1 place.

4. luke faces vader on dagobah (insider ranking #6) to me this is a very important aspect of luke's training, showing him that if he is not careful walking the line between the light side and the dark side of the force, he will follow in his father's footsteps towards the dark side.

3. darth vader overthrows the emperor (inside ranking #3) okay, so i agreed with this one as well. very important turning point in anakin's redemption.

2. luke returns home to find his aunt and uncle dead (insider ranking #8) #8?? what!!?? without this, there would probably be no story. how can you rank this as #8?? with his aunt and uncle dead, there is nothing to keep him at the farm, and he can follow ben on his quest to find the princess. this is what puts him on the path to becoming a freakin jedi, fer crying out loud. #8??!?!

1. luke, i am your father (insider ranking #1) okay so i agreed with this one too, this is quite possibly the best scene in cinematic history.

and here's the rest of the insider list's top 10 that didn't make my list:
9. we have spotted imperial walkers - esb
7. darth vader unmasked - rotj - i kinda put this in with my #3 to be honest.
5. yoda makes the x-wing take flight - esb
2. han solo's deep freeze - esb - #2?!?!

so, what about you guys? how many of the insider's (or my) picks do you agree with/disagree with? and what's your top 10 moments?

Watto's Junk Yard / anybody like david blaine?
« on: July 15, 2004, 10:52 PM »
there was a david blain special on tlc tonight. even though i've seen it, i had to watch it again. i don't believe that whole levitation thing, and i don't go for freezing yourself in ice or any of that crap, but as far as card tricks go - he's the best magician i've ever seen.

anybody else dig david blaine?
