View Full Version : June Hauls

06-01-2008, 01:42 PM
A short road trip yielded this morning's finds, my first haul of June:

Indiana Jones
Cargo Truck
Troop Car
German Soldiers 2-pack

All this and $40.01 in gas ($3.89/gal)! I've been filling up when the tank hits the halfway point, helps take some of the bite out these high fuel prices.

Hauling about 65 lbs. of recylcing: aluminum, glass, and plastic; as a result of my son's (19th) birthday party last night (and into early morning today). We still have guests hanging out........:yes: (GTA4, Mario Kart still in progress...)

My suit for my wedding, I paid for it in May, but it needed alterations, and I picked it up today. Also new shoes, and a shirt for my big day, as well as a suit for my son, whicjh I paid for today, and pick up next Sunday.

Star Wars insider issue 101

Creating the worlds of Star Wars 365 days by John Knoll for 30% off because it has a few nicks in the bottom back cover, and the manager of the bookstore I bought it at, is a huge Star Wars fan, and understands my pain.

At online shops:

Ultimate Soldier 1:18 Tiger Tank 49.00 free shipping (eastern front camo) discontinued.

At TRU online:

Ultimate Soldier 1:18 P:40 Flying Tiger (British Africa desert markings)
This one was discontinued way back when you could only get it at Walmart. Then it was selling on ebay for way over 100. It's been re-issued as a TRU exclusive for 39.00+shipping. Yay! They'll go fast.

Get them while they're hot if you are into the military stuff. The 1:18 scale is getting scarce, and they go nicely with the GI Joes.

Beast, if you're going to do that, you might as well wait for the rerelease of the Grodd packs (in August perhaps?). That way, prices might come down on them.

Holy Cripes I hit the mother load yesterday!

Okay first I made a great deal with one of our fellow forumites for 1 each of Covert Ops, Shadow storm and Clone troopers.

Then last night I went to TRU:SCORE (unlike those danged Pittsburgh Penguins...lol)

Anyway, I got TWO of each:
Shadow Stormtrooper
Shadow Clone trooper
Covert Ops

To boot I have another deal for just the black coin from a different forum member.

Wow all in the span of 24 hours!

Now if I could score a few more Neyo's I'd be golden on that wave.

Oh and I happened upon three of the new order 66 sets. (One of each)

Those Order 66 sets are up for trade/sale (at cost which was $10.70 each) + exact shipping to you.

If interested, please PM me.

Well, technically, yeah.

It's tied with this one (http://cyberstore.decepticon-matrix.com/tshirt_grimlock_kickbutt.jpg).

And another one I can't find a picture of online, which is a picture of a turn-of-the-century football team that says "Intercourse State Teachers College - 19[something] National Football Champions - You should've seen them score."

Batman Animated Series Hot Wheels - nice, but overpriced and missing a few visual cues the larger Kenner version got right (mainly the height of the back fins, and the color's wrong). I wish it was more like the Corgi line, where every car had a cool feature and more detail, but it's not bad on its own.

Samsung WEP-410 Bluetooth headset - defective, expecting a new one from Amazon any day. Fits nice tho'.

Samsung WEP410 bluetooth headset - a little smaller than my WEP200, and noticeably clearer on both ends. With the $30 mail-in rebate, comes to $13 on Amazon. In-ear instead of earbud design is a little unsure, but doesn't have discomfort like either of my other headsets. Only real issue is the main button behavior which redials on a click rather than a click-hold, very stupid. Still, dandy earpiece so far.

which comic pack? I'm only interested in the Purple Neyo clone/Wookiee set myself.

Can't wait to get a whole set of the Droid Factory. I'm drawn to some of these weird colors of droids for some ungodly reason.

I only picked up the Purple Neyo clone/Wookiee set. That was the only one that interested me too. The set of droids plus the one you can build from the parts in each package is cool. I just am not sure about the color they chose for the figure you build. I wish they would of went with something else besides the gold color like C-3PO

Grail Knight
Young Indy Boy Scout
Dr. Elsa Schneider
Colonel Vogel

...alas no Dr. Jones Sr. yet.

I saw the Droid packs a Walmart, and also the Ex. SW Comic packs. Nothing really exciting there though I might pick up Lando and the blue trimmed stormtrooper. The blue on him is the correct tinted perfect blue they should have used on the Clone Wars 1 Arc Troopers btw.

Emergency last-minute run to Fry's for the following:

Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 flatbed scanner - the old scanner I was taking to grandpa's to put in his digital picture frame was missing a part, didn't find out until the 45 mins before Fry's was to close, so I hit the roads and after a wrong turn ended up with 15 mins to spare. $50, nice price, small and light. Decent if not perfect installation, small and light enough that I was able to fit it in my courier bag alongside the laptop, laptop charger cord, and various gear, that kicked ***. Decent scans, ok speed, good enough.

Microsoft Wireless Mouse with USB dongle - cute travel mouse, my mum bought it for herself a year back or so but didn't realize it was a travel mouse, not meant for everday use, it takes only 1 AA battery so if you don't dock the USB dongle into the underside, it never stops transmitting or scanning for mouse-movement. Paired very quickly, range isn't much but enough to work great for the laptop, nice feel although a little fast, easy to just pop into the zipped pouch on my courier bag. And free, that's nice too.

I got a wedding complete with catered food, wedding cake, and a gold band to wear on my finger.

Nothing left after that for SW goodies, well we did get money, but it's "our" money, so I don't want to dwiddle the cash down, on silly plastic figures, Yes, I do, but I can't, so I'll wait until I have some of my own money.

TFU Rancor marked down to $27.98! Then I used a $5 off coupon! Ended up paying $24 and change with the tax. Sweet! I may take my first one back and get the difference. Then again, I may just hold on to it. I wanna see how many of these suckers are really in the game. If there are more than one, then I'll prolly just keep it.

Transformers Animated Lockdown - very cool alt mode, nifty transformation, bot mode is very big but lanky and has limited articulation. Hands are designed wrong and can't fold all the way out, very very annoying.

Transformers Animated Prowl - nifty alt mode but could be a little better, clever transformation, nice bot mode but could use a little more articulation and I don't care for the head design, and the knees are partly blocked for no reason at all. Traffic weapon is lame.

Saga Legends Cmdr. Neyo - decent, but design of shoulder straps makes mid-torso articulation useless (or the belt pops open, not good).

Sideshow 12" ANH Han Solo - Good but problems too: overpriced, not enough accessories, shirt is cheap material, arms too long, hips suck in the pants which looks bad, gunbelt doesn't work at this scale as designed at the belt or the holster. Still, very good likeness, nice outfit aside from the shirt.

Futurama: Beast with a Billion Backs - underwhelming. After coming off such an amazing success of Bender's Big Score, this falls flatly into the weaker aspects of the last 2 seasons of the show. Not a failure, some funny stuff, but the drama stuff is heavy-handed and sloppy, and the overarching storyline doesn't really deliver much of anything.

1 pair Costco "Kirkland" brand denim jeans, courtesy of my wife for $13! In spite of the generic label, these things rock! I believe I'm on the road to forgo my usual brand of Land's End jeans with a price like that!

Also....smog certificate and new tags for my wife's car.
