I was much happier when that was an anonymous ass.   :P

On second thought, maybe "PDiddy" didn't refer to me at all, but to PDiddy Wise instead.

Maybe I should stop being so damned self-centered.

Now someone go get me some breast milk from a Cambodian immigrant.

I only drink the finest breast milks.

Now you're just making me sad again that season three of Chappelle's show has 50% less Chappelle.

Dude, image crop is your friend!

I don't know what it is about Brooke but she doesn't do it for me.  She's hot and all, I guess just not my type.


They look great!  How well are they constructed, pretty sturdy or not so much? 

Nice head swaps.  Did you have to modify the Joe heads to fit the Marine bodies?

You know, I'm just ******* pissed at that.  A regular fan had no chance to win and instead the entire thing is being wasted on an insider that already gets benefits others don't have access to.

It's not even a or Dustin issue, I'd be upset if anyone related to a fan site had won this thing.  Just like any contest you see, employees or associates aren't eligible.  I'd argue that fan sites with inside connections like should be exempt as should their employees.


Other Toy Lines / Re: What is Your Favorite Figure "Scale"?
« on: July 10, 2006, 01:10 PM »
I've always been a fan of the 3.75" scale because of a lot of reasons mentioned previously in this thread; the ability to have vehicles, playsets and multiple accessories.  Plus I grew up with Fisher Price Adventure People, SW and GI Joe RAH.

Although I still like my 3.75" figures I'm also a fan of 12" because of the cloth outfits and the ability for more detail than at the smaller scale.  The Sideshow SW figures are a perfect example.  I'm a big 12" Joe fan and have some Action Man, 21st Century, bbi, Dragon and Max Steele items as well as Hasbro SW items.

I'd love to see a 12" scale line with $10 figures and various accessory packs similar to how Joe ran in the '60's and '70's and Barbie does now.  It won't really happen though.  Even Barbie is hurting these days.  Kids, and parents, just want to drop cash on one box and have everything included for that toy (not counting vehicles). 

It's a shame, really, that the way kids play today has changed so much since the late '70's/early '80's when a lot of us were growing up.  Nobody has an imagination any more. 

I may be wrong but just based on what I see in local neighborhoods and the apartment complex where I live, kids don't play with toys any more.  When I was a kid on a Saturday you could find me and my friends with SW and/or Joe figures spread out over two or three front lawns.  Now I see kids walking around with their iPod in their ears and their PSP in their hands.

Eh...sorry for the rant.  Anyway, 3.75" is my favorite scale with 12" running a very close second.

Man, does it surprise anyone that the origianl re-paint company has a variant for each figure in this line? 

They look pretty cool, though.

If anyone here is a member of the GI Joe collector's club did you get your 12" or 3.75" subscription figure yet?

I got my 12" Foreign Adventurer yesterday and it's really cool.  Picked up the exclusive accessory set as well and it makes a great set when all put together.

Now I can't wait for the con to be over (it's this weekend) so I can get my 12" con set!!

Once people realize that everyone is racist and/or prejudiced it makes it easier to deal with.  However, that has nothing to do with people that are just plain stupid...that you can't fix. (To paraphrase the great American, Ron White)

Five million?  I'd pay off all my bills, build my dream house and retire to it.  That should leave me with about $4.5 million left over for me to live off the interest.

I have enough interests and hobbies that I could do them full time and I would if I didn't have to work.

You can take the girl out of the trailer park but you can't take the trailer park out of the girl...


I took a couple pictures the other day of the two Predator and one Alien figures that I bought.  I used a Joe and Luke Skywalker for scale.

I've seen it twice.  Shocking.

It's like a train wreck...

But if it's that easy to catch these guys and it's not entrapment, why aren't there set ups like this all over the freaking place at all times...

Actually I've read that even small local law enforcement officers have set up similar stings using the Dateline model. 

I would think that you'd either need someone on staff that can do it or you'd have to get with the Perverted Justice people to help you out.  I'm sure that budgets for that type of thing might also not always be what's needed to get the job done.

As bad as it is, though, I still can't believe that people are shocked this is going on.  ****, my friends and I were picking up women across campus using IM programs back in 1989.  That was like the first thing we learned how to do on the VMS systems! 

A lot of these parents can't be that much older than me, they should be relatively savvy but, apparently they aren't.  They don't have any clue about what's going on on-line.  That's why a (mostly) boring web site like is suddenly the top news story almost nightly.  Internet predators are a problem but come on, the same people that install security systems in their house, lock their car doors while driving and put in anti-theft devices suddenly get stupid when they see that "Windows XP" logo pop up on their computer screens.
