  1. People are already picking up wave 10?! I still haven't seen wave 7! In fact I have been to every TRU in Oregon and haven't seen a anything past wave 6 in over two months...
  2. I hear you, your points are very valid. Forgive me for being one of the older members and really not trying to doll out advice. My story I'm a semi adequate singer, tons of stage work, musicals, sang with the opera for years, the money I made barely paid the self employment tax at the end of the year. I have MANY friends who are trying to follow thier bliss, not wanting to sell out or become a corporate drone. In the end it's a lifestyle choice. I work for a fortune 50 company that pays well (well maybe pays ok) have a home, car, blah blah blah. Do I love my job? No. But it becomes a means to an end, it serves a purpose, and I have chosen to live a lifestyle that requires more than the few dollars I made at my passion of singing. If you ave a gift at writing, use it! Continue to write. No one says when you're done at work you can't continue to write. And if you keep at it, odds are you'll have some success. You might not be the next JK Rowling, but if you keep at it there's certainly some satisfaction knowing you're doing what you love. Being a corporate sell out I often question what's the point, what's going to be my legacy when I'm gone (aside from my formidable minimate collection). I can't answer that, though I think that's a lifelong struggle to find the point. Please, keep writing, don't give up.
  3. I work for Sprint and carry the Samsung Epic, got it mostly for the super AMOLED screen and slide out qwerty, though I use Swipe for most all of my messaging now.
  4. Minimates_checklist_11_10.xls Hey gang hope this is kosher I did a little updating of the Excel spread sheet, I'm sure I missed something, hope this doesn't offend anyone...
  5. Just so I'm clear (been distracted for a while) the Universal Monsters box set each contain one original mate along with re-relelases of three we all scoured TRU to get our hands on, correct?
  6. Aapje ,you may have spelled that wrong............... & I'm hoping you meant 'puked' . Oh no, I think he meant Pucked, most definitely!
  7. Adma Corolla show is a lot of fun, plus I do a few NPR shows Car Talk, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me are a couple fav's.
  8. I've got an ax for you. I know a special way you can mount it...
  9. Shatterstar, Shatterstar!!! Really I would LOOOOVE a Longshot and Mojo! Sorry off topic BUT STILL!
  10. Let's make it a real action movie, Director John Woo starring Tom Cruise!!!
  11. I don't rmember Slimer ever getting blown, at least not in the version I saw. Maybe it was the unedited sequal "Ballbusters" or "Ghosthummers" ?
  12. Wow it's so big!!! At this rate we'll only need 37 of them to hold our entire collection. Not counting 3 inchers. Or two and a half inchers. or... Still it is nice they threw in a preview of the pirate mates!
  13. Add me to your fans I've used your site numerous times to keep tabs on what I have and what's missing, really thanks man!
  14. Just noticed the update thank you SOOOOOO much with all the variants and different waves (TRU, movie, Marvel, SDCC exclusves) it's the only way I can keep track of how many I missed. Thank you thank you thank you!!
  15. I JUST started picking a couple of these up, mainly favorites that havent been made into minis i.e. Vigilante and Firestorm. Is there a good place to find a list of whats been out or a good place to pick these up? I've been on ebay, amazon, bbts, etc trying to find a couple...
  16. I started with a few favorites, Iron Man, a couple spideys, then went for everything I could get my hands on! I sold off all my C3, LOTR, SF, and 3 inchers only to end up buying them all back (at a premium) on Evil Bay. Now I drift back and forth taking a break until 3 or 4 waves come out then buying everything I can get my hands on. Lately I've been struggling with the movie/TRU/regualr wave variants and such as it makes it hard just keeping track of what's coming out when and how many exclusives are there. And don't get me started on battle jerks...
  17. TRU in Beaverton OR has all the IM2 mates in stock, and LOTS of them. As well as GB, some Marvel from last wave, and a couple BSG. Also got my single pack IM2 mates they freakin rock!!!
  18. Went to the Borders in Tigard OR they had one labelled "Borders Exclusive" the battle damaged Whiplpash then two with Potts and drone not labelled Exclusive. Does that mean they will be available in another wave? So confused as i am not a packaging variant just want one of each figure, oh the humanity!
  19. Recently finished Dennis Leary "Why We Suck" and Craig Ferguson " American on Purpose". Working on Tad Williams latest Shadowrise.
  21. I know I saw that too, unfortunately not available in the US and haven't been able to find a picture. Problem is (and I love the car truly) maintenance is also a small fortune. But really it so choice...
  22. Why has it got red headlamps That's the arse you arse!
  23. Found these at the TRU by Clackamas Town Center in Portland OR along with the GB mates, a few straggling BSG ones too.
