  1. Maybe it's on her list too... And you have officially become my new best friend with that comment. A man can hope. He can hope. @loll@
  2. Oh, so they want to make the sequel what the first should have been. Instead of the goofy build up to a sequel that we got. Here's hoping.
  3. No real surprise here. Regardless of what critics say, it's still Transformers, and it's still a summer popcorn cash cow. Not surprised in the least.
  4. Hurry up kid, it's momma's turn to sit on my lap and tell me what she wants.
  5. This will be a perfect statue to put on top of our secret Cobra base.
  6. Duke: If this guy passed the psych eval, what does that say about Blackout?
  7. Palin: Had I been allowed to wear this outfit, we would have one for sure.
  8. Stalker: So, Duke, does this mean I get to keep this figure stand?
  9. "OK, characters with horrible movies to the left, and those with watchable ones to the right."
  10. Spaces in the display names? Is that even possible? @hmmm@
  11. Like most collectibles, these are only worth what you can get someone to give you for them. In pristine condition, there still isn't much of a market for them. These things were made in HUGE numbers, and nearly every kid from the late 70's to early 80's had them. I personally had four different ones. They are tough to find in good condition because they took a ton of abuse. I remember riding mine down the sidewalk. That's when toys were toys, and Tonka Tough actually meant something. You can usually find small lots of these on eBay in various condition selling for fairly low values. Were I to try and sell one, I would seek out someone that was a collector looking for the exact ones that I had. Even then, the condition is always going to be a big concern. These things were metal, which any time there was a paint chip meant there would be rust. These were also often times left in sandboxes or outside on the porch exposed to the elements. The typical yellow paint has a tendancy to fade after long term exposure to the sun. And the metal axels and hubs that kept the wheels on rusted usually after the first time being rained on. Bottom line, if you have one in great condition, you are best off trying to find a collector looking for what you have. Otherwise, you're probably looking at a yard sale toy, unfortunately.
  12. I remember my Grandmother used to wrapped up in these Hess trucks. She tried to get me into them as a kid, but I was only worried about them as far as their play value. I recently read an article about how these are some of the worse collectibles ever to collect. Right along with Hummel figurines, Beanie Babies and Precious Moments figurines. Looks like my grandmother went four for four there. The number one worse collectible was the collectible plates. Any of them. Thankfully, Oma never got into those. She still has Barbies to fall back on, too.
  13. It seems these Cars ... uh ... cars ... are a huge cash cow. I never saw these things leave retail like most movie lines do. The Cars from the first movie were still up on shelves when Cars2 product started coming out. They could do a ton with this line really. I'm sure it has to do with licensing and what not. But they could be a great step up toy for younger kids to get into Hot Wheels. If they had characters modeled after real cars it would be really great. I'd love to see what they can do.
  14. I keep saying they shouldn't be making these sequels, and then they turn out to be pretty decent, unlike Cars 2. I'm pretty sure that franchise is dead now. But as long as these things are making money, they're not going to stop making them. And to Pixar's credit, they have at least given us some new properties inbetween money hungry sequels.
  15. If this really is like Pawn Stars for fan boys, I'll be all over it. I love Pawn Stars. I love it when people think because something is old that means it's worth money. I can't wait to see what some people think about their comics. This is going to be great. Comics and comic related merchandise was hard to sell back when comics were big. Back before the bust. I can't imagine how it is nowadays. I remember selling my entire McFarlane Spiderman collection, including his Amazing work, an autographed silver Spiderman #1, his Spawn series #'s 1-25 all for $60 because I couldn't move them otherwise. It was hard, but I was getting out of comics and wanted to unload everything. This is back when things were good in the comic world. I'd probably be lucky to $30 for that lot nowadays.
  16. Thanks for the tour of the town. I've often wondered about the backgrounds myself. You've done an excellent job there.
  17. Hmmm. Now there's something I can add to my bucket list. Of course, it would have to be the last thing I do before I die, because if my wife found out, she'd kill me. @loll@
  18. I'm at work, and I've found time to post at least 17 times. Wait, this will make 18 today. But who's counting?
  19. I think this will be Haynesworth's way of redeeming himself. If for no other reason than to prove that the Redskins are a horrible organization.
  20. Maybe it's a case of no news is good news. At least they didn't say it was cancelled, though it probably will end up that way if those numbers hold up.
  21. Maybe if the real sergeant's contract ends with WWE you will, but don't hold your breath. Yeah, I'm sure the real Sarge is going to do everything he can to keep that WWE contract going. That's his golden ticket. I hate it that it means we won't be getting a Sarge, but I guess I can live with it since his sculpt was far too realistic this time around. I wanted muscle bound Sarge, not tubby Sarge.
  22. I don't think it would be hard to give us a Zandar figure. The most I think it would require is a new head sculpt. I'm sure they could make good use of some other parts to take care of the rest. Still don't know why we wouldn't get a Zarana figure at retail sometime. If we don't, it has to be the biggest waste of money tool wise on Hasbro's part. There's not too much else her torso or head could be used for.
  23. I'd buy the 3DS at that price if there was a new Castlevania game for it available. I think I would pass still. Not because of the price, just because my family has about 10 different versions of the DS floating around the house right now, and I've not seen anything so 3D that warrants me plucking down the bucks for yet another one.
  24. Very odd. Whale sharks don't often go after people. I've actually 'surfed' a whale shark before. Unless of course it is illegal to do so, in which case I'm just making this all up to look cool on the internet. @hmmm@
  25. I'm excited that this is back. I remember when it went away. That was such a sad day. I really hope this helps us bring some more posters. Things have seemed like they've slowly picked up over the past few months. I hope it continues. Good luck to everyone else.
