Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Harry Potter

I finally finished. I have to say that I liked Order of the Pheonix more, but this one still has a brillient level of quality.

Out of all the books though, this one has me waiting for the next one the most. I can't wait and it's bummer that it's at least two years away.


I am dissapointed that she took Snape to the bad side. He was my favorate character because I'm intregued by conflicted characters like his and for him to be playing the good side the whole time seems a little cheep (although it was logically thought out.) My wife and I talked about this and she seems to think that there can still be a chance Snape was following Dumbledor's orders, but I'm not so optimistic.

Nice stuf Dale, Thanks.

The thing about Columbia that made me stop and think was is the fact that foam has been comming off durring evey lift off and that was the first time that it caused significant damage. It made realize that evey launch was a craps shoot, kind of a scary thought (beyond the million technical things that could go wrong.) I certainly hope they can figure it out, but perhapse this will push them toward a new launch vehicle.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: How big is your army?
« on: July 28, 2005, 11:04 AM »
Nice army there Vator. When are we going to see an update?

So then these "lava" figures are going to be similar to the Walmart Qui-Gon and Darth Maul hologram figures that stuck around for months at 9.99 and eventually I got them for $2.  I have five of those Mauls in my holographic army  ;D

LOL, I wish.

Nice set to keep carded. I'll have no interest in opening them.

Im kinda hoping this is a mock up pic. Like they initially did with the Wedge figure. New sculpts of 4-Lom and Zuckuss and an ESB deco VOTC Fett would seal the deal for me.

If they're going to due new sculpts, I'd rather see them on cards...

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: How long have you collected SW?
« on: July 27, 2005, 10:42 AM »
Since the beging. I guess you can call me a lifer as well. Never got the Earliy bird set, nor early varients like the VC Jawa or DT figs, but I had good 3 3/4" collection until the POTF line when I was pretty much forced to quit due to age. :(

Once POTF2 hit, there was no one to stop me, so I've been full steam ahead on the 3 3/4" ever since.

I head one rumor of these guys hitting, and with respect to the guy who reported it, I think the person who told him didn't know what they were talking about. Let's just hope they treat these like the cantina scenes an put out pleanty.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Target DPCI Number Reboot?
« on: July 27, 2005, 10:30 AM »
Ok - so as I posted over in the Evolutions thread - I'm willing to scan in the bar-codes from recent items so we can build an image library of assortment barcodes that can be used in lieu of typing in the DPCI number. Here are the lines I can think of:

Collection 1 Basic Figures
Collection 2 Basic Figures
Target Cups
500th Vader
Deluxe Figures
Unleashed Figures
Battle Packs

If anyone wants anything else let me know here and I'll let you know if I can accomodate the request. Just so everyone knows in advance, I do not collect: Galactic Heroes, the [du]MPire turds, Force Battlers and Jedi Force so I do not have source materials to scan for those.

I have the inserts from the Vader/Ventress/Sidious+Yoda Unleashed wave here at my desk along with the collection 2 insert I was using today so I could scan them here at work to get this started.

Good idea Pete. Thanks.

I'll bet the conversation that the Hasbro rep had with his superiors wasn't pleasant though....

Watto's Junk Yard / JD observation
« on: July 26, 2005, 11:32 AM »
I've been monitoring the touchy situation in the Why there are no pictures of Bly thread and it finally hit me what is familliar about the atmosphere of this sight. JD is college compared to all the other sights being High school.

Think about it. I don't know about you, but high school was kind of rough in that a lot of people were just immature and the teachers in general just didn't care. When college came around, everyone kind of bonded togeather and became more tollerant of others. I specifically remember the effort that people made to accept everyone without exception, and that's the feeling I get around here, an honest effort to make eachother as welcome as possible, even durring stressful situations.

I was just curious why you have no desire to get to know any of the locals out there, especially when they're having big get-togethers (10-15 people) every month now.

You've already answered your question, I'm a newbie around here

What does that mean? You're not alowed to associate with vets? I'm sure they'd be happy to have you.

I wonder what inspired the first version anyway?
