Gotcha.  I guess I didn't realize that a master case was only 4 boxes.  That makes sense since the 3 of you go in on them.

Do you usually save by doing that over buying boxes individually?  I guess I've never asked you that before.  I bought a box of the Bounty Hunter wave way back when...ran me about $100 shipped from Hong Kong.

Damn, many boxes of Kubricks do you buy when you order up the SW sets?  Or do you just buy cases?

Sweet score on the Shockwave.  I bought one last year but I think he's missing his knife.  I got a file card with him but not the full back.

Over the last 3 years or so I've slowly been filling in some holes in my collection for 1985 and tacking on the 1986 collection as well as a few others here and there.  Maybe later this year I'll work on it a little more.

Ah, yes.  Emmanuelle Vaugier.  One of the lovelier Canadian exports over the last couple of years.  She hasn't had a breakout role yet though.  She does keep showing up on some of the WB shows though.  Smallville, One Tree Hill.  I think she was on another but I'm drawing a blank and don't feel like hitting IMDB.

Where's he moving to "back east?"  Because I'm really hoping it's nowhere near me.

How do prisoners actually find out about their fellow inmates' crimes? I'd think there'd have to be some sort of outside source involved. Do guards slip out inmate's info to other inmates?

Yeah. When you get to prison you get a little sheet that says all your stuff on it, including what you are there for. People will look at your sheet or steal it if they don't believe you. Word spreads fast, and guards could care less about stopping people from learning what those bastards did.

(Don't ask me how I know all this.)*

* I saw a tv special on it once.

You're right, all the info is available.  Plus the court cases can be looked up in the law library unless the specific case is sealed.  The law libraries in prison can be just as good as any so it's available. 

Also most prisons use inmates for garbage detail, cleaning, all sorts of things where they have access to info.  Many times they know info about what's going on in the prison before all the guards find out*

*I'd reveal my source but the CO is looking over my shoulder.   ;)

What a great word.  I'm going to petition Webster's to add it to their next edition.  :D

It's got my vote! :D

Voted.  It's way better than the more widely used "ass hat."

Didn't he also get discharged from the Air Force for some reason, injury or something? 

You know, I have to take that back, about not finishing anything and the Air Force.  I was a little pissed when I wrote it and thought better of it between work, when I posted, and home.  If he was in the AF and was injured on the job it still can't take away from the fact that he served.

It still doesn't excuse the fact that he's a, how did Jesse put it, "sopping wet ******bag."  And what did I say about name dropping?  Calling Dustin and Philip into his tirade?  Pure genius.   I've never said word one against Dustin or DBB and although I disagree with how RS is run some times, my problem is more often with the forum rats than anyone else over there.

I wonder who's name he dropped?  I missed that, but yeah it's funny to think about it.

I don't recall now. He tossed out some high post count names...about how he's "friends" with them.  As if to say that even though his answer was wrong, if his post count didn't make it right, knowing these people would.

I'd like to invite Mister Kenobi back to continue our discussion from last time.  He's called out several people in the Rebelscum Photo Album thread and I think that it would only be appropriate to discuss it in a place where he can actually see the replies.  Since I'm on ignore and he can't see posts from me over there.

Here he calls efranks 'thick'

Just like efranks - that guy is too thick to understand t

Thanks fan-*******-tastic!  He called me out in a thread I've never read, about a comment I made on another board.  I guess I'm going to have to go and read that whole topic now to see why that even came up.  It's pretty funny though...and now we have further proof that he haunts this board looking for any mention of his name.

What's really sad about that comment, recanting his previous marriage support question, is that he probably needs help.  If you lived with that guy wouldn't you be looking for a way out?

I heard about his being sent home from C3.  What a waste of time and money.  Didn't he also get discharged from the Air Force for some reason, injury or something?  It just sounds like he can't finish anything he starts...except his EP1 figure collection.  Which, any die-hard would have completed sometime around 12/31/1999 if they were really a fan.


PS - Although most of this post was me being sarcastic, have no doubt that I believe Matt is a ******* *******.

I don't drink coffee which has caused some odd looks, especially when I worked at Lowe's and coffee and cigarettes were a given on break.

I like my hot chocolate in the winter though.

I'm a little sick of the post counts as well. Some members who have only been there for 6 months now have Moff status (not like it matters) because they post pad so much...a certain post padding "Commander_____" comes to mind (he tried to secretly get me banned for no reason while being nice to my face before so screw him).

I could not agree with you more.  I don't give a crap about what my post count is and most of the upstanding members (of any board, this isn't just an RS problem) don't care either.

It's the people that pad their count in an attempt to gain legitimacy rather than gain it through posting relevant and intelligent information. 

Mattkatandicanthitthepostbuttonfastenough is a prime example.  I've seen where he tried to use his post count as a reason why his incorrect answer to a question should be accepted as fact.  When proved wrong he dismissed it and argued that he was a "respected" member and then proceeded on to the second method of trying to become relevant; name dropping.

There's a new guy over there now following the same methodology: high post count = knowledge.  Yet, by the questions he asks and the answers he gives it's obvious he doesn't know what he's talking about.

There is a God :o

Actually, I've been providing such exhibits that God exists on my blog for a while now:

I think I'm up to Exhibit V now.   :)

I think you skipped "U"   ;D

I used to do a feature on my site called "Hot Broads You've Never Heard Of" where I'd spy a good looking girl in some commercial or as a bit-player on a TV show and track down pictures and any bio info I could find.  I haven't done one in a while.  Two that stand out as being fun were Sienna Miller and Mandy Amano.

Amano was in the "Rich Girl" Pepsi commercial but I never was able to track her down till Maxim did it for me.

You'd think so, but that Durge ****** wrecked their forums so badly, that if even Jesus Christ himself came back to Earth and started posting there tomorrow, he still couldn't save it from the way Durge left it.

Durge was the personification of everything wrong with the world today.  He was the first character I've ever met (online or otherwise) that I'd burn down in the street just because.

However, I thought that when he finally got the boot from RS that the trolling would end.  But the likes of Mattkatandidontknowhowtokeepthespiceinmymarriagenowthati'mtrollingrebelscumtwentyfourhoursaday, Greenday and a few others have stepped right up. 

And, by-the-way, does anyone know who this "david_kay" character is?  Because he's had his nose up the asses of the mods for a while now...but Tuesday was a crappy day (outside of the forums) and he stepped on my last nerve.  That's when I started noticing just how annoying he is.


Other Toy Lines / Re: 2006: What Are You Collecting?
« on: January 12, 2006, 01:30 AM »
This year I plan on cutting back on Hasbro.  I probably won't be buying vehicles, deluxe or Battle Pack sets or pretty much anything that's not a 3.75" figure.  I'm sticking to 1 of each new figure or a re-pack/kit-bashed figure if it has been significantly updated in some way (paint, head, arms, etc).  All loose.  My carded days are over.  Along the way I'd also like to get a set of the 12 holos.

The exceptions to the rules are the AT-AT Driver and any Republic Gunship items Hasbro sees fit to produce.  I'd like a carded AT-AT Driver with each holo available because they fall under "carded variations" and the AT-AT Driver is my focus character.  Plus I want a couple loose because it looks to be an amazing figure.

Hopefully this path will free up some cash for the year.  I'll probably buy the odd Titanium but no more Galactic Heroes and I'll be a little more picky on the exclusives.  I plan on buying a few of the SS 12" figures and probably a GG bust or two.  There are two .45 scale MR lightsabers I want and, depending on how they look, a couple of the new blasters they're talking about.  I don't see any more Code 3 items in the future either.

There are a couple holes in my collection that I'd like to plug including trading cards, WOTC Minis and a handful of miscellaneous other items.  Oh, and in 2006 I'm going to finally buy that friggin' Blue Snaggletooth figure I've been needing to complete my vintage collection.

I've debated replacing SW with something else but I don't know.  My other collecting habit over the past few years has been 12" GI Joe figures, but with them done at retail for now I don't see much money being spent in that area.  Maybe I'll use some free time to customize some figures out of parts I already have...or start rescuing vintage figures from eBay and refurbishing them.  I've picked up a few of the new Sigma 6 figures and there are at least 3 more I want to get; Cobra Commander (who just showed up at retail), Storm Shadow and Scarlet when she comes out.

Anyway, like I said, I'm hoping to free up a lot of cash this year.  Pay off some bills and work towards my goal of buying a house.

I'm going to bump this up to ask if anyone has been buying the Viking sets?  I hadn't heard anything about them till I stumbled across a huge display in a TRU in Dickson City, PA back in November. 

They just showed up in the newest Shop@Home catalog and I was looking them over and they seem to be nice sets.  Anyone build any?

Also I saw some new $4 sets at Target last night, the Lego X-Pod.  They're pretty cool little sets and affordable.
