Watto's Junk Yard / Oscar's anorexic looks
« on: February 25, 2008, 09:12 AM »
Did anyone watch this thing last night?

I'm not a big fan of Hollywood's I love me attitude and all their awards, but my wife was watching so I'd look up from what I was reading from time to time.  Is it just me, or did all the ladies presenting look like they were anorexic and unhealthy?  I mean, many of them looked like a skeleton with skin.  I think everyone enjoy's a thin woman, but come one, go at a hamburger.

LEGO / Need Lego Millenium Falcon help
« on: February 21, 2008, 12:35 PM »
I'm not sure what model I've got of the Millenium Falcon.  I think it's the one that came out in either '05 or '06.  I've got a a cockpit that fell off and I can't seem to get it back together.

Can anyone help me out either with the paper directions or hook me up with downloadable ones?  I've looked on the Lego website and can't seem to find the directions.

Watto's Junk Yard / How many presidents can you name?
« on: January 15, 2008, 08:58 PM »

Stumbled across this on another message board that I frequent.  I got 35 my first time through.  Luckily I named all but two through the first part of US History, the part that I teach.

Watto's Junk Yard / Prayers for my wife and I
« on: November 14, 2007, 03:39 PM »
It's odd how quickly life can change. I have been so excited the past 4 months that my wife was going to give birth to our first child in May. We went to the doctor on Monday for a checkup and sonogram. The sonogram showed the heartbeat we had seen in the previous two was no longer there. So this morning my wife had surgery and thankfully is resting now after the two of us have been pretty much sleepless since Monday morning.

For those of you that pray, please do so. We were so excited and thought we were out of the "dark" time of pregnancy only to have this happen. Only those who have had this happen or have kids can understand how truly devastated we are.  Sadly the next time she gets pregnant, we are going to have a constant fear hanging over us.

Vintage Trading and Classifieds / WTB Bootleg and baggy Han Solo
« on: September 3, 2007, 11:32 PM »
I'm looking to expand my foucs a bit.  I'm looking for bootleg vintage Han figures.  I've got an unarticulated Polish Han and that's it.  I'm looking for loose figures. 

I'm also looking for bagged Han figures.  I don't care about bag variations. I'm just looking to get one of each Han in a bag.

Shoot me a PM if you can help me out.

Watto's Junk Yard / I'm gonna be a dad!!!!!!!!!!
« on: September 3, 2007, 03:43 PM »
Yesterday afternoon, I head off with a buddy to take some batting practice (I'm playing softball in 3 leagues in the DFW area) and she takes the test.

It obviously comes back positive and I'm freakin' thrilled to death.  For you dads, you know how high I'm flying right now.

I've got a Saga X wing that is complete and I'm looking to get rid of.  I am also including a POTJ Luke pilot as well.  This was used strictly for display and was either on a shelf or hanging from the ceiling.  As of the last year it has been disassembled and put in a box.

I'm looking for $50 shipped for it, but will always negotiate.  Please PM me because I don't normally cruise down to the modern classifieds.  I'm more than happy to ship overseas, but the shipping will be a little extra.

Collections / Vintage Han Solo run
« on: February 5, 2007, 06:39 AM »
Okay, because I don't want to have to go through and reload everything to village photos from RS, I'm just going to send you to the RS page where I've already got the stuff loaded up.  Enjoy, after about 3 years, this is what I've put together.  You know how it is, you post at one site, you have to post it everywhere.

I've got a vintage Han on each cardback.  Example, Original Han on SW, Bespin Han on ESB, Endor Han ROTJ, Carbonite Han POTF, etc, etc...

I have finally completed this thing.  It's been almost two years of off and on work and finally I've finished this thing.  Here's a teaser pic for you and follow the for the whole gallery of pics.  The pics range from picking parts, to some painting, and through some of the construction.  Although not all of the constructions is documented.  I know that some of the parts may be mounted a little crooked, I did that on purpose for the most part, but not all of them.  Remember, it's an ugly.

Watto's Junk Yard / How many softballers do we have here?
« on: September 29, 2006, 02:10 PM »
Lately, I've taken a rather large hiatus from collecting and have r  arely been visiting the net for SW related stuff.  I've spent some good SW money on a couple of softball bats.

I've played a ton of ball, 2-3 nights a week from spring until fall, but until this year never got ate up like I am now about playing.  I can't wait for game night to get here.

Anybody else around here play ball?  Anyone very serious about it?

This is the last figure I need to complete my basic run of Han on each cardback, before I get into variations.  Can anyone hook me up for a decent price?

Customizing Tips and Tricks / What would you do???
« on: July 4, 2006, 10:44 AM »
Recently my wife and I have bought a house and have finally gotten moved in. I was trying to decide how much of my collection I really wanted, and how much I should sell. Included in that were my customs. I have two completed ships and one I've been working off and on for about a year on. I've got a ton of stuff about to head to eBay, and a lot of it is my modern Han collection.

I had a custom gunship and wa on the fence about either selling it or trashing it. When it was moved, it apparently got jarred pretty good and is now headed to the trash bin. My other custom was a sandspeeder based loosely on the unproduced Kenner version in the 80's. (If you want to see it, you might be able to run a search here or head over to FFURG to the vehicle section.)

I'm not sure what to do with the speeder. I don't really think I want it because it's taking up space and much of my interest lately has turned away from SW and custom projects. Anybody been in the situation before? What did you do?

Modern Classifieds / Massive Collection Cleanout!!!!
« on: May 29, 2006, 12:02 PM »
I'm trying to get a most of my modern stuff sold off and I really, really want to let go of my POTF2 figures.  I've linked to an old eBay auction of mind that is obviously over.  You can take a look at the pictures there.  I probably should have sold the set at $400 or so like the bidding ended at, but I didn't...stupid me.  I'm looking for an offer on the set.  I'd like to sell it as a whole preferably, but will consider breaking up pieces if the price is right.  I really want to get rid of it as a lot so I'm not trying to keep tabs of stuff that I still have and don't have.  My wife and I are finally moving into our new house in three weeks and I really don't want to drag this stuff with me.

Can somebody hook a brotha' up? :D   Shoot me a PM if you are interested.
