Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What Blue Ray DVD player to buy?
« on: September 29, 2008, 07:33 PM »
Brent, blu-ray discs only play in blu-ray players.  The hardware in regular players can't read them.

Wish I would of read that before  :P - oh well, I guess I put a blu-ray player on my Xmas list!!

I don't know how to post the clip here but if you go to the front page at and scroll down to the left side video's, you can see Darth Vader dance to 'Thriller'. :D

PS; Dale if you can grab it and put it here, that'd be great - I think it's pretty funny.

I have no will power on this stuff  :-[.  I have so much bedding it's embarrassing (considering I was a kid in the 70's and THAT bedding was used for my own son's room in the 90's!!).  I just hope this holds up as nice as the stuff from the 70's.  The last batch I bought that was the cartoon characters of Yoda, Vader and such still feels "rough" and I washed it several times!!

I am going to hold off and order Vader on Friday.  I want the 'choke' hand - that's the one I will use.  As for the other two....I might order them from SS or wait and see if I can get them cheaper elsewhere.  I still haven't gotten the Endor 3-pack or any of the Empire guys.  I dunno...I didn't even order the latest Luke.  I am holding out hope for Lando and a Padme in one of her beautiful gowns from AOTC.

With being out of the loop the last few months, I didn't know about any of the new stuff so imagine my surprise when we stopped off at a Walmart coming home and I found the Evolutions Padme pack!!  :o

Then, I found a picture of another Padme on the back of Saesee Tiin but I couldn't find her on any of the pegs.  I did pick up a battle damaged Darth Vader and a Captain Rex (though I don't know what the blue first day of issue sticker is all about).  Vader and Saesee came with parts of a droid so I am going to have to write down what I got and see if I can build one with the few other figures I might want.  Looks like this Walmart had all the figures on the back of the packages ('cept Pamde) as well as biker scout vehicle two packs and some other two packs as well as Han and Chewie and C3PO packages, a spider droid package with some figures (can't remember who) and all sorts of other ships and stuff.   All in all, it was a lot of fun to dig through the pegs like the old days.  I now have the family on the hunt for Padme  ;).

Happy Belated Birthday everyone!!!

Wow - nice score Chris! 

Does anyone remember if they have a preset amount for SDCC exclusives?  I will be out of town (and no computer access) that day and my family will all be with me.  I can have one of them call but would prefer to go through the internet.  I am sure the hotel will have it but they probably won't be back to the room until evening.  If I remember right, I think I will be okay but would feel better about it if anyone knows and can post the info.

Thanks!! :D

So, how do I go about trying to get the Leia/Padme sets?  Is stuff like this available if you call Disney directly and have it shipped to your home or is Ebay my only option?  I have to have those sets - they are what I've always wanted from Hasbro but never got. 

That's great news that you got your helmet!  I was wondering whatever happened with that.  So...where are the pictures already!!! ;)

I would assume Claire has to die also for the baby to go to Kate but how does the baby get to Kate?  Does she get shot and Hurley goes and gets Jack for help and then she has Kate promise to take care of Aaron?  Is that why Hurley ends up with Jack and company when they leave the island?  I dunno....but this season is much better than last season, IMHO.

Even though I am not a gentleman, I am butting in to point out the new Coach wallet I just picked up this past weekend.  At first I wasn't sure I wanted pink (not Colman pink) but I like it.  Now, I just need to find a matching pair of shoes....

No.  I'm still a long winded blowhard with a cranky temper.
