Sharon Apple Concert Attendee (4/15)



  1. Does anybody know how many stores will be releasing the PS3 at midnight on Thursday (Friday technically). I know some Circuit City stores will be doing that, but I don't want to drive all the way down to Torrance.
  2. Yikes! That pedastal head looks even worse when everything is colored. I really hope the thing is just transformed badly. I thought the photoshop version where the head is placed lower on the body makes SS look great! Keeping my fingers crossed.
  3. They seemed to have sacraficed the robot mode a little bit to make the best fighter mode. The proportions are a bit off, but I can live with that. What really bothers me is that they made the head sit a little too high off his shoulders. He looks like he has an unusually long and fat neck. Other than that, it looks pretty good to me. It is too bad though that they decided to take the route of making the vehicle mode better than robot. MP Prime was the exact opposite where the truck mode suffered because of the robot mode. But guess what, I can buy a great model of a truck or fighter plane at any model shop. I can only get one MP transformer that looks like Prime or Starscream.
  4. Bigbadtoystore, still has the binaltech Dodge Rams up for preorder. I am hoping this will go through as I think an alternators version would look piss poor. BTW, who the hell would want to buy an AFA graded alternator for triple the price? I can maybe understand grading a binaltech, but a cheap plastic toy. AFA grade a SOC or Yamato 1/48. Don't AFA grade a toy that was meant to be played with. Yeesh.
  5. I've actually been waiting for a Dodge Ram to be done as an alternator. True, this one should have been ironhide, but I guess Prime tends to sell better. The robot mode is a little funky. I like the vehicle mode a lot, though. I'll probably wait for the binaltech version since I am tired of collecting cheap plastic looking toys. I am really hoping that the black version will look ten times better and possibly will have a different looking head that can pass for ironhide. Custom anybody?
  6. But notice most of the trans fans on that forum are liking them. And people wonder why most transformer toys are so hiddeous. I'm sticking with MPs and Alternators.
  7. Where is the best place to buy this flip top? When you say flip top, are you talking about just buying the slim PS2 that has a top that flips up rather than the slider that comes out then using one of those CDs that somehow trick the PS2 into thinking it is a japanese version?
  8. That's what I did. I took the more expensive route and bought the limited edition Z Gundam PS2. 335740[/snapback] Where did you guys purchase the japanese version of the PS2? Was there a specific online store or ebay seller? Considering a mod chip will cost an extra fifty bucks anyway, I think I would like to go the route of just buying a japanese version. However, I was under the impression that the japanese version can play the US version games, or does it only play Japanese games?
  9. Just ordered a blue tracks. How does this work with HLJ? I made the order online as a new customer. They sent me an email confirming my order. However, there was never a page I went to that showed me the final price including shipping. On top of that, I never got to a page that said pay now. For people who have experience ordering from HLJ, what am I suppose to do next?
  10. Actually, after reading through the 9/11 commission report, I thought it did put a larger amount of blame on Clinton's administration than the Bush administration. There is a section that talks about how the CIA had a plan to take out Osama Bin Laden, but the operation was called off at the last moment. Also, it talks about how Military higher ups believed Osama Bin Laden was a big threat and some wanted to send in ground troops to get him. However, they were never given the green light to do it. Instead, Clinton authorized missle strikes that were ineffective because Osama was constantly moving so by the time the strike happened, he would already be gone. To me the commission just presented the information, and you as a reader needed to decide how you felt about it. Now with the levee plugged up, even Bush has said he wants the relief effort investigated. Why? For obvious reasons. http://news.yahoo.com/fc/US/Bush_Administration/ Click on video of Bush vows probe. We need to figure out what went wrong during the last week so that next time this happens, people will know what to do.
  11. I always thought the sideswipe design was terrible and ugly. However, that Hotrod looks great, and I would buy one in an instant. Always surprises me how fans come up with better designs than toy makers who get paid to do this stuff. Any pictures of car mode?
  12. Quote: Yeah, we really need a commision to 'find the facts', those commisions always do a bang up job, never get political or partisan or turn into blame game show trials. I can't wait. The 9/11 commision was very enlightening and we're so much safer from terrorism nowadays. Actually, I found the 9/11 commission report to be very enlightening. True, you had people blaming each other for why certain things happened. However, the report never says that one side is right or one side is wrong. It was more of a collection of information they found by interviewing the various people involved with Homeland Security at the time 9/11 happened and the years leading up to the tragic event. You as the reader need to make up your decision based on this information. (Which guy do you believe? Who's really at fault? etc...). Kind of like a documentary that shows both sides of a story. I found it definitely more informative than listening to people make a bunch of uninformed comments without having any factual basis. Seems like in this country citizens believe the louder and more outraged they are, the more their arguments are supported. Doesn't work that way.
  13. I read Hillary Clinton wants a commission put together to investigate what went wrong in the reaction time of the relief effort. I hope this happens. Usually, stuff like this is done just to try and make the other party look bad. However, it makes sense to figure out where the whole relief process broke down so they can fix it for the next major natural disaster or terrorist attack that hits the United States. Also, I just want to know WTF happened.
