    the usual geek stuff. Comics. Games. Movies. Music. Bread.
  1. Man these are awesome. It's a damn shame the Target's in this area look more like Kmarts....no dope Neca sections here.
  2. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! This is awesome. Magnificent work.
  3. CRIIIIIPES!!! Want these so bad.....I'm broke, butttttttttttt when has that stopped me?
  4. The same thing happened with a Nightwing figure I got...from whatever wave that was. This concerns me. If this is happening this frequently, something tells me this is not just a QA thing....but a scheme to save money. And if that's the case, if Mattel is trying to pull a fast one like that....they can kiss my money goodbye. .....until I see another figure I really want. And I sell out. And play into their hands. Because I'm weak.
  5. I'm fairly sure my opinion doesn't count either.
  6. Here's the deal. You should be getting on your knees and thanking paramount and J.J. to have the juevos to do something to make Star Trek relevant again. Remember when Star Trek was cool? When there were big lines of NON geeks waiting to see Star Trek IV? Yeah. I want to see that again. And the only way I see that happening is to reintroduce the original characters in a way that the kids can relate to without having to worry about 45 years of past nonsense. So yay Abrams. You get my $10 movie ticket and my thanks. Thanks for entertaining me and making millions of dollars doing it....you opportunistic pig. And on a side note, Star Wars should also be redone. By someone with taste. And Talent. And a new creative outlook. Yes...I'm saying Lucas is a no talent hack with archaic ideas. So there.

    I'm pretty sure high oil prices are contributing to this... the cost of oil goes up, causing the price of production to go up, causing the cost of shipping to go up....passing the cost to us. Also, the current economic climate isn't going to help things. I say pretty much count on prices going up on our fun little hobby. It was fun while it lasted.
  8. A lot of people seem to be having problems with the whole alien thing. My wife really didn't like that aspect either. She said that Aliens didn't fit because Indiana Jones is about artifacts with powers relating to God...which ever God that may be. But I look at it like this: What was Indiana Jones Really about? Indiana Jones was an archaeologist (is that how you spell it?). He's an archaeologist in this new movie. Indiana Jones was collecting artifacts with these wonderfully crazy legends around them. In this new movie, he deals with Mayan and Incan stuff. Both of which have wonderfully crazy legends surrounding them. Some of which involve the theory that Aliens built their civilizations. Indiana Jones always reflected the times he lived in. In the original movies, he was in the late 30's and he was dealing a lot with Hitler and his fascination with these godly artifacts. In this new movie, we're in the 50's....a time when the red scare was terrifying people...and a time when all of that U.F.O. stuff first started coming into play. Indiana Jones dealt a lot with religious themes. In this new movie, the same applies. He deals with an ancient civilization's religion and their gods....they're just REALLY different Gods...It's like he says in the movie after he and Mutt see the pictograph of the god with the elongated head and Mutt says God doesn't look like that....Indy says, "That depends on what god you believe in". So to me...it almost seems like a logical conclusion to go this route. Sure, there are other ways you could have gone..but I really didn't have a problem with this alien thing....or interdimensional being thing (a lot of people are starting to think these "aliens" that people have been seeing for years are actually beings from a different dimension....if you believe in that sort of nonsense). My problem was with the pacing and overall story/character development of the thing. It just felt a little choppy to me. And of course the Lunacy of Lucas that was spread everywhere.
