I've been collecting the price tags from Target on their exclusive figures to go along with them.  Lame, yes.

A question about the Nightmare on Elm Street Boxed Set.

I have all the older DVD's (the red ones)... I'm wondering if there is anything different content wise about the nicer boxed set - I'm thinking about buying it and trading in my red versions - but only if there's a reasonable difference.

I haven't had a chance to watch any of mine yet, but aside from the awesome box, it does come with some 3-D glasses for Freddy's Dead #6, plus a booklet expaining every movie as well as an 8th disc titled "The Nightmare Series Encyclopedia" filled with bonus stuff including Docs, Trailers, interviews with all seven directors, MTV appearance, and and interactive Freddy for your DVD-ROM.

There's some special DVD-ROM trivia games entitled Dream World on every disc, but I'm not sure if the feature was on the originals or not.  All my discs say that they're remixed in 5.1 if that makes any difference.  Aside from that - there doesn't appear to be any additional content.

I despised the US 20th Prime because of his small stacks (just like the TRU reissue ex) and held off on the Takara MP version at the time because I had so much other stuff to worry about - now he's a little too pricey, but MP Ultra Magnus seems to be at a good price.

I did get my Star Convoy today (if anybody knows who/what he is) today from BBTS, but I've yet to crack the box open.

Found The Nightmare on Elmstreet complete box set today at Target for $39.99.  Not a bad deal with the $5 off coupon that was in my Sunday's paper.  Not sure if it's any cheaper anywhere is, but I haven't bothered to look.

Actually, provides that ad, so we have little control over that.

It is cruel though, isn't it?   :'(   ;)

He keeps popping up from time to time so I'd sit tight...

I've found him several times over the past week on the SWshop, but it never lets me add any to my cart....  Just worried about not picking up another exclusive brings cold feelings to my heart.

I think Jeff is helping me out on this one though  ;)

Can I suggest that the ad be removed from this site since it's "no longer available?"  It just keeps taunting me everytime I see it.

Another flawless transaction today with Jeff for the Anakin Sith Eyes variant.  Glad we bumped into each other yet again.

Nate hooked me up with my first black Clone Pilot tonight...Good trade for the senator, glad I could help you out as well.

Thanks much!

I feel your "pain" as I'm going to have to put SW collecting on hiatus for at least the next six months to 2 years due to life events.  I've been a 3 3/4" completionist on all carded figs and boxed vehicles/playsets since POTF2 through ROTS of which I started collecting when Ep1 came out. 

On average I've had about 2-3 small/large (if not more) purchases per week since 99 be it online or from retail so it's going to be hard for me to not have anything new to look forward to SW-wise each week.  I'll still be able to pick up a few basic figs now and then, but I'll unfortunatley have to look forward to picking up where I left off on Ebay.

Thanks for all the input you guys!!  I really really appreciate all of the great advice.  Reading up on this thread was almost an assignment in itself - you know who you are ;)

Day two and only one snag with my Comp1 class, but I won't bore you with how well/bad college life is going for me.  Maybe I'll chime back in a few months though just to let you guys know what worked best for me - if anybody really cares.

Thanks again everybody!!

I was wondering if I could perhaps get some advice from the JD community on study habits as the majority of you guys seem to be well educated.  I graduated high school back in 96 and I swore to myself that I would only take a year off before attending college.  Well, that never happend and one thing led to another so I just kept putting it off until now - Monday actually. 

College seems like the perfect thing in my life right know as I'm getting laid off from my job after 5 years unfortunately due to consolidation so the state is going to pay for the first few semesters of school for me.  I don't come from a wealthy family so this was good news for me.

I hate reading, always have, always will...Now I have 10 books (which weigh about 20lbs) to read for the Fall semester.  I've not read a single book since high school, so obviously this will be a challenge for me.  I won't be working for the first semester, so I won't have that extra burden to worry about.

Any tips on the best way to study?  Self or group enviroment, online, in a library, on a train, in a plane???  I used to just blast my stereo at home which seemed to work perfectly for me back in the day, but I don't think that's such a good choice.

I'm a lurker on this site with the exception of the MN finds thread btw.  I read a lot of your guys thoughts on comments, but I don't contribute much, obviously.

Hands down any flavor of Coke beats Pepsi.

I also really dig Coke Zero, really, really dig it

I just tried one for the first time yesterday and it suprisingly does really taste like Coke.  Plus there's hardly any weird diety after taste.  Tastes much better than the Diet Coke I've been drinking for the past few years.  Has anyone tried the Coke with the Splenda sweetner?
