Other Collectibles / Unique Japanese "Other" Collectibles
« on: March 23, 2007, 02:34 AM »
It never ceases to amaze me when I see the rather unique Star Wars items being produced in Japan.

Here's a few items coming out in the next few months:

#1. Die-cut Cushions - cuddle with your favourite!

#2. Laundry Baskets - Droid storage of your dirty laundry.

#3. Lightsaber Fans - a new look for an ancient tradition.

#4. Lightsaber TV Remote - a civilized way to change the channel.

#5. Darth Vader Apron and Mask - a Sith Lord's gotta eat!

#6. Mosquito Coil Holders - if the smoke doesn't scare off the skeeters, maybe the Dark Side of the Force will.

Modern Classifieds / Needed: 1 UGH sticker!
« on: February 12, 2007, 07:53 PM »
I have 4 of the UGH stickers from the vintage TSC figures and just need one more to send off for my 2nd LucasTrooper.  I haven't received the first figure yet, so I thought I should send off another mail-in to increase my odds of getting one.

Can anyone help me out?

Modern Classifieds / Wanted: GH Cinema Scenes & Unleashed Vader
« on: December 25, 2006, 05:24 PM »
Since I had such good luck with finding the Target Shuttle from a fellow JD'er (thanks Dan / Bob Dylan SW Fan!), I thought I'd make a new plea.  I'm looking for 3 of the Galactic Heroes Cinema Scenes:

- Battle of Geonosis
- Death Star Escape
- Vader's Bounty Hunters

My second request is the Wal-Mart exclusive "tube"-packaged Unleashed Darth Vader. 

I'm hoping to find them at the clearance price, so if you can help me out, please PM me!

Watto's Junk Yard / How were you affected?
« on: December 6, 2006, 05:56 AM »
Uh, ok, this is perhaps a bit more serious than usual.  Have you ever lost a friend or family member to suicide?  How did it affect you?  I just thought I'd generate some discussion after a friend of mine ended his life. 

Watto's Junk Yard / Internet Explorer 7
« on: November 22, 2006, 10:34 PM »
Anyone else HATE the new version of Internet Explorer?  I've never had so many problems with it locking up and crashing since I upgraded to version 7.   >:(

I was considering uninstalling in and returning to version 6, but that seems to be an even bigger headache when I started looking into it.  Or maybe use my other browser more, Opera.

Any fellow Canucks going to watch the playoff games tomorrow?  The Riders have made it to the Western final against the Lions, so I gotta watch it.  It's not very often we actually make it to the playoffs, much less actually win one.  Hopefully I'll be watching them in the Grey Cup next weekend.  :)

Other Collectibles / Hot Toys Chubby Figures
« on: October 23, 2006, 06:23 PM »
As mentioned by Jesse James on JD's front page, has some images about the upcoming Hot Toys Chubby Figures.  It appears they will be released in December. 

These are so bizarre looking - I must have them!  :D

Modern Classifieds / WTB: POTF2 Theatre Edition Luke
« on: October 16, 2006, 08:27 PM »
The title pretty much says it all.  This is the last 'basic' carded figure I need to complete my POTF2 collection - can you believe I'm still working on this?  ;)

Ideally, I'd like one in good shape, which seems to be hard to fine with this figure.  PM me any offers!

Other Collectibles / Duck Fadar
« on: October 2, 2006, 12:30 AM »

I have now seen it all - a Darth Vader rubber ducky!  ;D

Naturally, I had to buy one.  ;)

"The I-Duck has got to be THE 'must give' present. It comes in eleven great designs, Pink, Blue, White, Yellow, Green, England, Ducktor Who, Proud, Duck Fadar, Lover, and the cute I-Duck Nano. They all have a self contained battery which powers the internal LED's when they are placed in water. The duck has two small contacts in its sealed base, which are shorted, causing the duck to light up. When it lights up, the LED's changes through a wide variety of colours over a 45 second cycle. Each duck comes in its own colour designed presentation box, which makes it an ideal gift.   PLEASE NOTE: The battery lasts approximately 40 hours, but unfortunately cannot be replaced. "

Many thanks to Dale for pointing this out to me!
