George Washington

Robert E Lee
Davy Crockett (had to get this one, the guy is my hero)

I got a Michael Jackson hits package today. Seriously. It was a 3-disc expanded version of The Essential Michael Jackson for $12.99 at Costco. Add a third disc that includes "Blood on the Dance Floor" (the only song I want from his remix album) and drop the price a few bucks, and that turned out to be the cheapest overall way to get his Motown solo singles, the good tracks from Off the Wall I'm missing, and his very sporadic worthwhile stuff since Dangerous. Now I'm only missing "We Are the World" and a few tracks by the Jacksons from the 80s that never show up on compilations.

Hasbro Star Wars Jodo Kast - ok I guess, but very sloppy paint. One of those characters that should have been long ago, almost seems too late now.

Marvel Transformers Wolverine - I really dig this one. Very nifty alt mode and transformation, good robot mode but has a hard time standing due to foot design (takes action poses better than neutral), and snikt spring-loaded claws are always welcome.

Marvel TF green Hulk - interesting, not entirely satisfying but some cool ideas. I think if the bot mode had been bigger, even if just bigger legs, it would have worked a lot better.

Iron Man Blu-Ray Target Exclusive - my first Blu-Ray movie. Comes in a nifty container shaped like IM's helmet.

Haunted Mansion glow in the dark Playing Cards - $5 at Disneyland, and they're nicely stylized, but the g.i.t.d. aspect makes the backs gritty and I suspect that'll affect shuffling and dealing. More to look at than to play.

Tune-up for the car - gotta get it smogged this month.

TFviews.com's News system and the snazzy graphic I made for my lil site - see for yourself (http://www.tfviews.com/news/).

DC Universe Deathstroke - good sculpting, still a gap at the bicep though, lots of accessories, paint a little simplistic but works alright.

SWTF Grievous Starfighter - fattened up but decent alt mode, though underside shows upper legs and crotch. Transformation is pure shellmaster but with a few clever ideas. Bot mode is a lot of kibble in a poor pretense of a cape with a spindly but serviceable figure on the front.

Clone Wars Super Battle Droid - looks nifty out of context, spring-loaded launcher gimmick is whatever but nicely removable, design and paint watch are simplistic but fine. Biggest problems are that he's TINY to the point of ridiculous when put next to a clone, and his wrist-cannons are poorly realized, basically just lines.

Looks like it's time to start hitting the Joe section again. "Just when I thought I was out (for a while) they pulls me back in again."

Was that the only one they had, or was the Hard Master comic available, too? I think that's in the same assortment.

Transformers Universe Sideswipe - 20% off and free shipping from HTS. Nice figure, good change to the transformation scheme, colors work better than Sunstreaker. I don't like this head though, they made the face too big and the ears stick out too much.

TF Titanium War Within Prowl - I dig him, but his bot mode proportions are weird and the gap under his head is lame. Nifty but flawed in both modes, interesting transformation that I keep enjoying.

Indy Dlx Mutt on Motorcycle - on sale for $8 at Target. Decent set, fun even, though not very Indy-esque. Sunglasses on Mutt look pretty bad, and misshapen. Head is misshapen like they didn't let the plastic cool right, his head is dented and his jaw out of shape. Body is good except for wide crotch. Bike is very good, rubber tires, Hasbro aped most of the notes including the goofy stuff like disk brakes; only drawback is the triple-tree and headstock are stretched way up, raising the headlight and handlebars. Footboards are rubbery and warped but I suspect they can be returned to regular shape.

Indy Grail Knight - very good, a few little things holding back from greatness, but looks nice holding the grail. This one and the next were thanks to the help of Old Fossil, who is da man when it comes to IJ help.

Indy Elsa Schneider - Looks good, but I haven't opened it yet, not sure if it'll fit in my collection.

Tickets to the season opener of our local ECHL hockey team. Although we lost to the Ontario (Calif.) Reign, our little team looked good defensively in spite of the final score. Our offense definitely needs work. The Reign looked very good fundamentally.

(Attn BCJ and Chux: if you're in to hockey I think the Reign would be considered your local ECHL team. I think they'd be worth following from what I saw last night. :thumbsup:)

From her and the inlaws, two 6" replicas of the Terra Cotta Warriors guarding the tomb of the first emperor Shanxi provence.

Finally with pics:
The first Chinese Emperor, almost 5000 years ago, commissioned an army to guard him in the afterlife. 1 Million Terra Cota warriors, each individually crafted were made. That's one million custom warriors made of clay that are life size. The tomb was forgotten until nearly 15 years ago when it was rediscovered by a farmer in Shanxi province. Now, there is a burgeoning tourist business both for foreigners and the always nationalistic Chinese to take back replicas of these warriors in scales from 4" to life sized replicas. My wife recently went home to Beijing, but traveled around as well. She got me 2 warriors in 6" scale.

10-21-2008, 05:23 PM
HTS 20% off and free shipping finally delivered...

Marvel Transformers Human Torch - fun in both modes, fairly solid if you transform the backpack right (it's confusing because it doesn't lock into any shape and there's a lot of variety in doing it wrong), could use more sculpted detailing and the alt mode undercarriage could be better. Overall, nifty but more fun than cool.

SW Comic Packs Legacy Imperial Knights - I don't know or care what their names are. The armor is way darker and less shiny than early samples suggested, soft goods - especially the hood - doesn't work that well. Articulation and sculpt are very good, "silver" clear sabers should have been more white but are decent, hilts are too rubbery and packaging causes them to be bent. Overall, good but not outstanding.

New catalytic converter for my car - it's being installed right now, the last one was done in a poor manner and seems to have failed for an unknown reason prematurely (all the normal likely causes for CC failure are not applicable here, the car has been running fine the whole time), but the guarantee on it lapsed.
