I was pm'd over at scum and asked to change my signature regarding my appreciation for Dan Curto....  It read "Dan Curto made,"


I respectfully said I would, but my opinion will not change.

I seem to remember a day not to long back when a lot of folks around here (myself included) got banned for having a certain website in their signature lines...

Good times.   :P

The playoffs have been pretty exciting so far. I've only caught parts of games here and there but it has all been some exciting hockey. Jonathan Quick looked really good in the LA - VAN game tonight.

Out of the blue I got some free tickets to tonight's season finale against the Predators. Ninth row behind the bench. Too bad they lost 6-1. But it was good to finally make it to a game this year

Either way though, I'm in the same boat of not really wanting to pull the trigger on a case buy right now, but at this stage, I may be compelled to and just hope I can unload the extras somehow.

That's been my dilema, too. But I can't get myself to do it. The extras all tend to be stuff that is either readily available at retail, or extras that most of us around here seem to want to get rid of anyways. I can't afford to get stuck with a bunch of extras I don't want and can't get rid of. I'll probably just continue to try find things at retail when I'm out and pick up anything else online individually.

It's sad how much the Northwest has dropped off as a Division over the last few years. Vancouver hasn't had much real competition late in the season for the division title for a few years.

I still think the Avs can make a run for the playoffs this year. They did certainly make it a lot harder on themselves with that loss to Columbus though. If they miss the playoffs by a point or two, that will be the game that lost it for them.

Add last night's other loss to Columbus and there goes the playoffs. I'm still pretty excited about this team in the future, but I think they need to add a good veteran goal scorer in free agency this year. But they won't of course. They had a few disappointing games down the stretch, but really have played great since the end of January or so and have been a lot of fun to watch.

I'm not sure who I'm pulling for in the playoffs this year. Vancouver I suppose.

Great update Justin! Those scientists are creepy looking. They remind me a lot of THX 1138. The gladiators are fun, I really like the helmet color you chose on them, oddly that is my favorite part about them even. I really like how it looks like a muted steel, it kind of gives it much more of a Roman gladiator type feel. The background aliens all look great too. Great stuff as always!

Top-notch stuff Incom. It really is fun to see just how much better you have gotten over the years. I love the Ven Zallow's. They really are great looking figures. That Novuc figure is pretty cool too. I wonder if you could somehow sculpt some dreads for the helmeted version as well? Just hanging out the back of the helmet. It seems like he wouldn't be able to fit them all up in there. Great stuff! Keep in coming!

Name-dropping. Especially when it is when it is over really stupid ****.

He died in your arms?  Oh man, that must have been tough.  Sorry Ryan.

Yeah, I held him while they put the shot in. I hadn't cried so much in a really long time.

I held him in my lap the whole hour long car ride home the day we got him 14 years ago. And I used to pick him up and hold him all the time so I guess it was only fitting that I held him for his last adventure.

I'm really sorry to hear about Tarkin, Jesse. He sounds like he was a great cat. Unfortunately I totally know your pain.

Yesterday we had to put down our 14 year old Aussie/Border Collie mix, Blizzard. He was my first dog. I know he was old and lived a good long life, but it really sucks to see him go. He died in my arms at the vet yesterday morning. I was a wreck all day.  :'(

Bumping up this old relic...

I currently work full time at a retail store as a peon(for one of the shittiest companies I have ever seen), despite the fact that I have a bachelor's degree. In addition to that, I also go to film school full time and work part time at the film school. with school I'm constantly working on my own projects and helping out other students with theirs. I haven't had a Saturday off since the beginning of August. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays are all 14 hour days for me. And on top of all of that I've been trying to plan my wedding. I've been doing all of this since August. Several times within the past month my work has basically told me that my schedule is no longer going to work with them and that I'd either need to go part time, drop out of school, or that I wouldn't be able to work there anymore. They have been giving me about the worst possible schedule that they can. Anything less than full time there and my girlfriend and I can't pay rent/bills. I've been working at this company for two and a half years.

I've been looking for other work for a while now, but because I'm now in school all day Mondays and Wednesdays and really need an additional day off for filming/mental sanity during the week most regular companies won't hire me. Fun.  :-X >:(

The Vintage Collection / Re: Keeping Cardbacks
« on: March 20, 2012, 01:21 AM »
Not only have I kept the TVC cardbacks, I've kept all cards (including duplicate/army builders) since 1995. I may have an issue.

I used to do the same... Including all of the blisters. I even had all of my old LEGO boxes back from when I was 4. I've done 2 or three major purges in the last few years and got rid of almost everything save for a few LEGO boxes from my favorite sets and some Star Wars Vehicle boxes.

That being said I still have one of each Vintage cardback. I always cust the bubble nicely off the card. I've been trying to find a binder I like to save all of my TVC cards in.

I nabbed the first Toys 'R' Us Endor Pilot pack finally yesterday. Along with another Rebel Fleet Trooper. I was looking back at my 2011 Great Collector's Challenge list and noticed I bought my first Fleet Troopers over a year ago. It is ad that I have bought every RFT I have seen at retail and have a massive army of six troopers...

It really does say a lot about distribution and case ratios lately when a figure that has been out for over a year can still feel so new.
