Remember, she originally got be TWO. because I couldn't be satisfied with just one! it takes two to satisfy me!
You seem to be standing firm with your decision.The_LingSter said:Instead of spending the money on a couple of dancing nekkid chicks, She bought me a Playstation 3 instead, with optional Force Unleashed game. It came to LESS than the price of the DNC.
Man that game is so different than the PS2 version. I was drooling inside of 10 minutes. Just being able to rip apart 90% of the environment was awsome.
I actually watched it on tv and thought it was decent. I plan on watching the new episodes for a few weeks at least and then reevaluating it then. (kinda depends on how far they take the humor in it)82jp said:Has anybody gone the iTunes route and actually downloaded the second Clone Wars episode (and/or the first, even)? Are we looking at a potential winner of a series here? I have a friend recording epsiodes for me off her DVR, so I'll get to see them once a month, four at a time (if all goes as planned).
I was dismayed a few weeks ago when I saw that Clone Wars got a 19% rating on Rotten Tomatoes! Such a lack of faith in George's vision! Let's hope the series proves all those critics shortsighted...
I'm not saying that it wasn't good. I just have this feeling that they may take things a bit too far with some of the humor. And yes that scene was good, battle droids humming to pass the timeNeal said:Watch the scene again from "Rising Malevolence" where the Battle Droids are venting the Clone Troopers out of their escape pods into the cold vacuum of space and tell me that this show is completely light-hearted and aimed towards children. I can deal with the Battle Droids stupid comments ... especially when they're murdering people while they're saying them.
The show is awesome.
I would see if you can find tan/cream/off-white pants, a white karate gi, a large belt and a floppy kids hat. That's sort of how I made this one for my youngling when he was 3 1/2Lukes_Dad said:Hey, has anyone seen a Tatooine Luke Skywalker costume, size small, in the Halloween shops around Rochester? I've seen a few at some e-tailers, but I'd rather pick up something local for my son, who wants to be everyone's favorite farmboy-turned-Jedi.

Dystopia or Utopia as long as it is make believe...Hedji said:The flavor of the month for pop culture lately is dark, grim, and serious, with an extra order of grittiness on the side. Maybe it's a reflection of our culture's growing narcissism, but I prefer my escapism to be light and fun, not burdesome.
Back in '78 they aired the hot pop culture on network TV, the thought of $60+ a month tor the cable monopolies makes my stomach hurt.Jedi117 said:I actually watched it on tv and thought it was decent.

No really it's OK, it's "clean radiation".Macross7 said:Never understood the point of those two guys there. What did they screw up to be stationed there? Being 10 feet from energy strongh enough to blow up a planet is probably not that healthy. Probably more healthy to lick the floors of Chernobyl.
It's ironic isn't it, just when ebay starts getting some real one of a kind items and people start selling off their collections at reasonable prices, very few can afford to buy them.Neal said:The market is terrible, but you have to put a positive spin on things. Everything is on sale right now. It's time to buy.
No Clash of the Titans?Mr.Curto said:This might just be the final installment for this feature...at least for awhile...
Thant's one way to look at it.Neal said:

Nice collection & photos, Rick & Curto!Mr Curto said:Once more....thanks to Rick!
The next installment of Flashback Friday features the FLASH GORDON line by Mattel. Based on the animated series (which of course is based on the classic comic strip), any science fiction fan from the late 1970s probably scored one or two of these figures themselves. I only had one of these figures myself, and incorporated it into our adventures as a kid. Never fear, though...thanks once again to forum member jediblood, we've got a half dozen figures for you to enjoy all day long!
