    more than you can shake a stick at
  1. This was bound to happen...gray market VF's?

    I just want replacement parts and armor parts. If Arcadia can't/won't do that, then they're going to have to accept the fact that these products will be sold by someone else.
  2. Is it worth it anymore?

    I am faced with having to rebuild a collection after losing mine. I researched and remembered what I didn't like about my old toys. The v1 1/60 was a crap sculpt to my eyes, as was the 1/48. I don't like how small the new Bandais are. I settled on the v2 1/60. I only collect the vf-1 series. I said all that to say this: is it worth it to collect toys? Absolutely not. You'll seldom if ever get your money back collecting anything, nevermind toys. Buy what you like. If you stop to consider worth, or investment, you've already lost. If you just buy what you like, you can't lose. maybe you're the type of guy who is a completionist, you collect multiples of every scale in every model. You've got one to open and three to store. More power to you, there is no wrong way to enjoy your hobby. maybe you or someone you know buys valkyries and regularly makes 200 or 300% profit. More power to you, you're very lucky, that hasn't been my experience. so I buy what I like, I buy used, and I don't buy to resell.
  3. Custom Lineart Valkyrie Section?

    I haven't been here in a while but I could swear there was a section that people had taken the lineart for the VF-1 and customized it with their own colors. I did a google search and found isolated ones on people's pages, but not the repository I'm remembering. Was it here? Maybe it was a link to another page. Any old timers remember that?
  4. 1. Chunky monkey (this is where it started for me with my old Jetfire, it has to come first) 2. Yamato 1/60 line 3. Yamato 1/48 (I didn't love it, I thought the proportions were just off) least favorite? Are they Macross? Then least favorite isn't a thing with me...
  5. 1/55 Ostrich Custom

    heh, since no answer to Rnurmin's question, and I'd like to know the same, where is Jason these days? Nick? Tony? any ideas?
  6. 1/55 Ostrich Custom

    yeah its great hey Jason, hit me up on MSN, its my username here @hotmail.com
  7. Worst actors of ALL TIME

    I am just glad someone mentioned Keanu Reeves, he has got to be the worst. Now having said that, I love watching his movies, I dunno, its like they're good despite him, well, Constantine, meh, but I'm not going to lie, I loved Bill and Ted. And the Matrix? fuhgedaboudit
  8. Revenge of the Sith

    yeah Warmaker, like was already said: I created this as the tell all thread, so spill the Galaxy's beans, please.
  9. Revenge of the Sith

    what about how much Owen couldnt stand Obi Wan? He called him crazy and told Luke to stay away from him. I'd say, Obi Wan DID come and try to train Luke, and Owen told him to flip off.
  10. Revenge of the Sith

    it would be so damn funny if r2 had gone and told 3po about stuff in the first 3. if he knew everything, "whoa, dude, tell him not to catch wood for that chick, its totally his sister"
  11. Revenge of the Sith

    what do you mean, another? the thread I saw is for the NON spoiler discussion of the movie...
  12. Revenge of the Sith

    my favorite quote from the movie was "Is that guy retarded? Why does he keep talking like that?" - aside from my girlfriend concerning Yoda's dialogue. Classic
  13. Revenge of the Sith

    holy crap. some things jump into my mind as I sit here floored from such a kickass movie. Palpatine's transformation... ok no, just no, why oh WHY did Anakin's red flag not go up after the dude didn't change back? And what exactly changed him? the lightning? he must have done that before... I guess we'll never know. IF there were deleted scenes with Qui Gon, I need to view them, the end of the movie could have been more fleshed out and not seem so rushed to me. Leia said her mother had a kind, sad face... (yeah I guess it could be Bail Organa's wife, but ffs...) Wookies ROCK Grievous coughing was just annoying, yeah yeah yeah, I'm sure his biological parts were the ones coughing, but it was still messed up. Anakin killing all the kids, ok I get the council, had he gone after them, but they really should have made the clone troopers kill the gd kids, it was TOO uncharacteristic. Padme freaking out at the very end, I mean come on, you didn't know? Where the hell were you? Padme is the new Lois Lane, imho. NO jar-jar, ++ ________________ All I can think of now, more to come
  14. Revenge of the Sith ROCKED! (spoiler free)

    I freaking loved it, the VERY last maybe 10 minutes was wrapped up rather quickly, but my girlfriend was about to beat the tar outta me if it went on for much longer (convinced her to go, said it was the worst thing she's ever seen, Philistine )
  15. Revenge of the Sith

    Fandango said the 12:01 was sold out, going at 12:10
