I received an e-mail from MR recently that says this:

"Master Replicas is very excited to announce an alliance with The Medicom Toy Corporation, to distribute specific Medicom Toy products. Until now, many of Medicom Toy’s expertly crafted, highly sought-after Disney collectibles have not been made readily available outside of Japan. Now, Master Replicas and Medicom Toy have teamed up to bring you those collectibles you’ve been yearning for!
Currently, three products have been selected for distribution, with additional products to be announced as they are made available. The first three products will be:

 
 
“That's got to be the best pirate I've ever seen.” Of course, the pirate in question is Captain Jack Sparrow, whose exploits in 2003’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, have become the stuff of legend. And now, Captain Jack is back as an authentic prop replica!
Just in time for 2006’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, Master Replicas and Medicom Toy are pleased to offer this 12 inch tall Jack Sparrow figure, featuring a realistic likeness and authentic costume and weapons replicated from the film. Jack Sparrow is being released as a part of Medicom Toy’s coveted Real Action Heroes line, and will make a great addition to any 1/6 scale figure collection!

“What’s this? What’s this?” It’s Jack Skellington, star of Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas as an authentic prop replica. Released in 1993, the first full-length, first stop-motion animated film ever created won critical acclaim and a huge following for its endearingly ghoulish characters and delightfully “twisted” visual style.

Jack stands nearly 18 inches high – the exact size used during filmmaking - and features 12 interchangeable soft vinyl heads and an internal brass armature, so you can pose the Pumpkin King for maximum spooky fun.

Released in 1991 and flying straight from the pages of Dave Steven’s graphic novel, The Rocketeer recreated the 1930s world of gangsters, spies and the beginning age of Aviation.

The authentic prop replica of the Rocketeer is 12 inches tall, fully articulated for maximum posing, complete with “replica” chewing gum on his rocket, and comes with his own stand.

Hell, seeing as they're getting the OT from the Laserdisc versions, I'm hoping all the extra scenes will be in there as well!

Not a huge fan of the Supes casting or costume design, and have pretty low expectations for the movie... but damn, that's a fine looking poster.

I think Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor is awesome!

The X-Men trailer also looks great!

Hey Beth, I have a quick question for you.  I figured I'd post it since it might help someone else down the road.

How did your moving experience go with regards to Master Replicas?  I know you were awaiting some items, plaques etc.  I'm curious since I'll probably be moved in with my Fiance before the Obi-Wan FX saber ships as well as the ROTS Obi-Wan plaque with the final edition number on it.

Also, is there a way you can go back and change a shipping address for something like that extra plaque?  I already have the saber obviously, but would hate for that extra plaque to end up in limbo because I could not update my address and MR use some sort of shipping that would not forward it.

I just ordered the Obi-Wan FX.  I forgot I still had the $30 off coupon from last years CS member ship so I got it for $89.

Jeff, If youre looking for a relatively inexpensive Darth Vader FX dsaber, I have two of them and I'm looking to unload it.  I was hoping to trade it originally, but I figure that was pretty much a pipe-dream.

Watto's Junk Yard / Computer Companies and customer service
« on: May 11, 2006, 04:40 PM »
I thought I'd share this little story with all of you and see if any of you have had any similar experiences with your computer(s).

About a year and a half ago, I purchased a laptop from HP.  The laptop I bought was fairly top of the line and quickly became an important tool in working towards my Masters degree as well as games and entertainment when the Air Force sent me TDY to california for 6 weeks for training, leave etc.

Unfortunately, I kept having display problems every few months.  The tech support people were very helpful and even though I would lose my laptop for about a week, they'd fix it and send it back to me no charge.  Unfortunately, I ended up having this problem yet again and my computer was out of the warranty.  Even thoough it was out of warranty, HP tech support said they would pick it up and fix it for free yet again, but after having this problem for the 4th time in 18 months, I was understandably not at all happy about it.

Luckily, my fiance works for HP and had access to this voice of the customer tool that tech support normally doesn't have.  She gave them all my information and in about 3 days, HP sent me a brand new laptop that is top of the line by today's standards and still have the great features of the 17" screen and full keyboard.

Bottom line of my story, even though I originally received a bit of a lemon for my original laptop, HP's customer service has been nothing short of outstanding and I'd probably buy another one.  I don't mean for this to sound like a great HP commercial or anything, but I was curious if anyone else had similar problems with either an HP computer or another brand and how well their experience with customer service/tech support has been.

Ummmm....yeah.

As far as Yakface getting their own forum that's actually pretty cool news.  I think that's about the only thing missing from that site, I bet they could get a pretty good community going.

I doubt I'd join up over there, hell, I barely have the time to post over here anymore.

Nice pics Beth.  I almost regret not getting one.  Although I'm still dealing with space with the mov in with my Fiance, so I'm kind of glad I'm on a collecting Hiatus (with the exception of the Darth Maul FX saber!)
