  1. I need help and so I turn to the best toy resource I know of. Recently while visiting with their cousins, my kids discovered Zoobles. I have a young son who is on the autism spectrum (he is hyperlexic). He generally doesn't play with traditional toys. I want to encourage both his fine motor skills and his imaginative play with a goal of social interaction/conversational skills, so when he showed some interest in these toys, I got excited. Unfortunately, it appears that these toys may no longer produced. I could find them on amazon but the prices seemed high. From some internet searching, it appears that Zoobles were introduced as friendlier versions of Bakugan Battle spheres and were aimed towards a girl audience. They are basically ball shaped toys that transform into colorful figures when placed on a magnetic stand. Anyone know anything about these things or where I might be able to buy them at a reasonable price? I would be happy to trade minimates for them if anyone had some. My son would prefer the Zoobles, but I would be interested in the more aggressive looking Bakugan figures if that was what was available. Anyone run across these in their travels?
  2. Can I vote for more teams? What about villains? How can I vote for the Wrecking Crew? Generation Next or this version of X-Force?
  3. My Rewards coupon expires next week. Fingers crossed.
  4. The Johnny Cash Unearthed Boxset is fantastic.
  5. R.I.P. Mark SandmanPaul's Boutique - Beastie Boys Electric Ladyland - Jimi Hendrix London Calling - The Clash Workingman's Dead - Grateful Dead Innervisions - Stevie Wonder RIP is right. I probably saw Morphine more then any other band- they used to play Philly a lot- and they were surprisingly awesome live. He was a great frontman, with a really great dry wit. His death was one of the most devastating for me, right up there with Jeff Buckley.This is one of my five favorite songs, although it's a terrible introduction to the band, since nothing else they ever did sounds like it: That's my favorite Morphine song but it kind of makes me cry so I cant listen to it often. There's a DVD about his life. From what I can gather this is a song about his younger brother who died young. Heartbreaking. Also, FUCK DREAMWORKS. His estate produced a double disc featuring outtakes and whatnot. Dreamworks agreed to let them use out-takes from "The Night" but then rescinded the request at the last minute. There's still some good songs on that set though. It's 'Sandbox' by Mark Sandman.

  7. It's like you jinxed yourself. Next time say you are really picky about the quality of the packaging.
  8. Has someone mentioned octonauts? The main characters are anthropomorphic but they interact with a lot of non-anthropomorphic sea creatures.
  9. From the other thread. This cover was drawn by Frank Miller.
  10. I know it could never happen due to licensing, but wouldn't it be awesome to get 'mates based on movies like The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, Jason and the Argonauts, the Golden Voyage of Sinbad and Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger. So many great creature designs.
  11. Completely unrelated to anything but this is the first comic I remember buying.
