  1. anybody see the latest episode? The guy named Sean with a massive action figure collection lives here in Sacramento. The host takes him to a store called "Toy Fusion" here in town to sell some of his extra... and nobody comes to his sale for a long time lol

     

    I have been to Toy Fusion lots of times, and I am not shocked that nobody came for a while. It's a pretty weak consignment store. There isn't much good stuff there, and what they have is overpriced. It's basically an ebay that you can walk into, but the sellers set the prices high instead of the market. It used to be an epic warehouse store a long time ago though.

     

    anyways.. I think I have definitely seen him roaming the aisles.. but I didn't know he was a toy reviewer.

     

    cool episode.. even better because it was local. And Sean has the same kinds of stuff that I have.. minus the Hot Toys

  2. I didn't see that game going the way it did. I was shocked that even with a dozen procedural penalties and an INT that came all the way back to the 2 yard line, the Cowboys still whooped up the Giants pretty good.

     

    And good job for the unknown Kevin Ogeltree!

  3. this is a dangerous game for DC.

     

    this will get them alot of hype. But it will also cause an uproar from muslim activists if they show the character breaking any of their religious rules.

     

    On the other hand, if they do show this muslim character doing everything the right way, he will be unrealistic.

     

     

    I used to date a muslim girl for almost 4 years.. and the ONLY part of her religion she followed was that she didn't eat pork lol

  4. could have probably made back the money by selling all the ones I don't want, but I didn't want to risk it (there might be alot of people trying to sell these on ebay)

     

    Unfortunately that's what's on the minds of EVERYONE who signs up for a figure sub, "Man, there's a lot of guys in here that I really don't want but I NEED the ______ figure, well, I guess I can sell the others on ebay". Problem is everyone else is thinking the same thing, usually about the same figures, and by the time you're done paying fees, you're lucky if you made your money back.

     

    It's one of the reasons I'll never sign up for a sub. That, and the sky-high cost, of course.

     

     

    right right. Now I am glad I didn't take the risk. There probably will be a ton of the extras on ebay of the less desirable figures

     

     

    I don't get why they chose so many bad figures. They said that they made the list based on fan polls... but I don't know many people that had this set as their most-wanted

  5. I almost pulled the trigger.. but I really only wanted 2 figures for sure.. maybe 3 of them.. 4 tops. and I am not a member so I would have had to sign up. (of course then I would have got Footloose)

     

    but I couldn't justify paying 350+ just for a handful of figures I want... could have probably made back the money by selling all the ones I don't want, but I didn't want to risk it (there might be alot of people trying to sell these on ebay) and I am sure the only ones that will go for anything are the ones I would want to keep.

     

    I can see Big Boa going for 150ish, Covergirl around there too.

     

    Big Boa is a nice figure but anyone who would pay in the neighborhood of $150 for it is just crazy or has money to burn IMO.

     

     

    have you seen what Dialtone and Footloose are going for? and those were the free club membership figures.... err wait.. maybe the loose versions were the free ones, and the carded ones were only at the con. But yeah, the carded ones go for that much.

     

    of course, since everybody had an easy shot to get these if they were willing to pay, maybe they won't go for that much.

     

    but my point was, I really only wanted Big Boa, Covergirl, and maybe Topside and/or TNT. I wasn't interested in any of the rest. But I am thinking that is probably what alot of people feel too. So Big Boa and Covergirl will be expensive, and the rest will be cheap

     

     

    but you are right. anyone that would pay 150 for a recent figure that would normally be 10 bucks, is crazy, or has lots of money and they don't care.

  7. Seahawks named rookie Russel Wilson the starting QB ! wow.

     

    after they paid Matt Flynn 26 million bucks for 3 years, you wouldn't even think that was possible.

     

    Poor Flynn, he should have went to Miami to be with his old offensive coordinator. They probably wouldn't have even drafted Tannehil and Flynn would be starting in Miami

     

    But he'd be in Miami. Then when Miami used the number 1 pick on a QB then he'd be on the bench anyway.

     

    no, like I said, Miami would not have drafted Tannehil with their pick in the first round if they had signed Flynn.

     

    But, it's likely that Russel Wilson will screw up anyhow and Flynn will get another shot

  8. Still haven't decided to get this...still got a couple days to decide...

     

     

    I know man.. I want to get it, but too expensive. I am interviewing for a new job tomorrow. If I got the new job, I would probably go ahead and order it, but it's not likely that I will know until the sub option is over.

     

    argh

  10. I got 11th.

     

     

    man.. like I said, I have that spot in the marvelous news league... it's a scary spot because you get the 11th and 14th picks.. and then you have to wait like 20 picks before you get another shot! I don't know what I am going to do in either league yet. both of my spots are at the ends of the snake order... so I have huge gaps between picks. I usually like to pick like 4th-7th.. that's a good spot

  11. the random draft order has been generated. Yahoo had a setting that I didn't see before. So everyone can now go see where they will be picking and think about it the next couple of days.

     

    I am picking 1st... which I definitely didn't want. In the MarvelousNews league I am picking 11th... both horrible spots. I hate this

     

     

     

    please remember that the draft is this Sunday, 1:30 PST / 4:30 EST

  12. I signed up for everything... What is a JBFL league anyway? I don't think I ever played in one...

     

     

    jbfl is the name.. I think it's something like Joe Battlelines Football League maybe.. it's run by Rhinoman, he is a member here and at marvelousnews.. I have played in it for a few years

  13. So the Draft's moved back a half hour? I just want to make sure so I don't come at the wrong time.

     

     

    yes, the draft moved back half an hour to 1:30. I am in the jbfl league too, and that draft is at 12.

     

     

     

    like I just said, the jbfl league has room for more teams for anyone interested

  14. draft time has been changed to 1:30 pacific / 4:30 eastern time this Sunday because I am in another league that drafts at 12/3

     

    that league is also looking for at least 3 players to make it 10. you are all invited to join. it's the jbfl league run by rhinoman, maybe some of you have already played in it before

  15. that's cool with me, thanks!

     

    alright, so who wants, or doesn't want the draft generator thing?

     

    normally, we wouldn't know until 30 mins before the draft what our positions would be.

     

     

    However, as Nevermore pointed out, there are websites that will generate a draft order for you. The website would email the order to everyone for verification. That way, you would have some time to plan your draft strategy or do some mock drafts.

     

     

    I vote FOR the generator.
