Here is my Haiku about the latest Star Wars line of figures (Saga)-
Enjoy.


Could Not Find Dooku
I Looked Everywhere For You
Now You Warm The Pegs.


I was lsitening to a radio show last week and they were doing stupid Haiku's- I thought I can do stupid Haiku's too! It's just a 3 line, 5/7/5 syllable, poem. Besides, I was getting tired of the "Rate the Figure" threads, so....

Started Haiku thread
Post your worst Saga Haiku
I get sober now.

:crazed:

Anakin is the best yet
But I can't find him

That's awesome Deadeye- you crack me up!:) :D :happy:

Hango- Haiku has 5 syllables in the first sentance, 7 in the second, and 5 in the 3rd. Good try though.

Luke figured varied
Could not find the bloody peg
A scalper's delight

Odi,

nice one. I've got one of my own:

April 23rd
But since then nothing too great
Must keep searching pegs

Bespin Luke is the
best. He is the man. More like
him hasbro must make

If I remember english well enough you can have multiple sentences on each line or split a sentence onto two lines...

Could not find Nexu
So I ordered it online
Found it the next day.

Dear Amanaman
Why can I not use your hands
To strangle Hasbro


Djas Puhr is upset
Why can't a Jawa come and steal
his poor feeble guns


Padme got quite buff
Quick-draw holds her armpits wide
Smells like Teen Spirit


Ani in disguise
Didn't mother ever say
Learn to share your toys


Scalpers search the pegs
They seek not the fair and young
Profit in old guys


Sio ponders such:
Why Hasbro will ship BoShek
Before rare E-1.

DeadEye

The newest waves are
Always difficult to find
Frustrating as hell
:D

TA Ani still
Eludes me; did he ship with
A cloaking device?
:D

Here's a 3 part Haiku:

Star Wars Saga Figs
Nice Boxes, Accessories
That Grab Children's Eyes

We should be content
Figures like Djas, Bloody Luke
Low prices to boot

Yet you still warm pegs
Fans not like poor quality
Hasbro shame on you

UK has got toys
this must be a major first
Hasbro does listen

I found the Acklay
Tri-logo box, really cool
the damn thing won't stand

Hasbro has old staff
They aren't in touch with young kids
confused marketing

Emperor Jargo
If you don't like your acklay
Then give it to me
:D

Hango Fett, if you
Don't pay attention at school
Your girl will leave you
:D

Jargo
07-22-2002, 03:20 PM
Oh, no chance deadeye
Acklay looks fine, just won't stand
not like the Nexu

Eagerly waiting
For Teemto and co, to show
a really good wave

Star Tours figures blow
made from horrid cheap plastic
two more still to come?

DeadEye
07-22-2002, 03:34 PM
Hasbro is wasting
Its time on dumb Star Tours droids
Let's have the new wave.

Emperor Jargo
As you describe the acklay
You make me want it.

:D

I love the Detail
Of The Saga Figures Sculpts
The Cheap Gimmicks Blow

Why Such Cheap Plastic
With Bad Quality Control
Hasbro Ticks Me Off

Haiku require brains
to work that little bit more.
Besides which, it's fun

Too many new toys
Hasbro should slow right down now,
before there's logjam

Given the high tax rate of New York state, hango, I think you and most other collectors probably pay a little less for each figure.

This is my haiku
Oh yes, this is my haiku

Must be very popular

Figures evade me
Scalpers invade all the stores
And I'm out of gas

I can't find new stuff
All of the west gets stuff first
Why, New Hampshire, why?

Aint got no money
I'd be saving for a car
But payday is soon

Deluxes: 20
New Unleasheds: 45
New Ani: Priceless

That Haiku would make a great blues song Detori.

Here's another of mine

Saw Acklay today
at Wal-Mart. Did not get cuz
blew cash on tacos

Wait for payday. Sad
part is no check till Friday.
Acklay disappear! :cry:
