Gotham Knight DVD for $4.99 at Best Buy. It's on sale this week and though I've read mixed reviews from my fellow SSG'ers, I figured at that price, why not?

12-07-2008, 10:58 PM
Birthday haul: "BMF" Millennium Falcon

12-08-2008, 07:36 PM
Gotham Knight DVD for $4.99 at Best Buy. It's on sale this week and though I've read mixed reviews from my fellow SSG'ers, I figured at that price, why not?
It's a mixed disc, but at that price it's good enough.

I picked up from Amazon the Sony PS3 component video cables for $5 with free shipping. And the free shipping was VERY fast compared to normal. The cables make a subtle but noticeable difference on my SD tv.

12-08-2008, 10:29 PM
2 Titanium P-38 Grievous Bodyguard Fighters.

12-08-2008, 10:40 PM
Gotham Knight DVD for $4.99 at Best Buy. It's on sale this week and though I've read mixed reviews from my fellow SSG'ers, I figured at that price, why not?If it was the two-disc, then totally worth $5 for the second disc alone.
Still a pretty good price for a single-disc version.

12-08-2008, 10:54 PM
Another 2 years of registration for my car....$41....fun.

You're complaining about that??? My car is $90 for a year.

12-12-2008, 12:44 PM
House, M.D. Season 3 DVD
30 Rock Season 1 DVD

12-12-2008, 12:58 PM
House, M.D. Season 3 DVD
30 Rock Season 1 DVD

30 Rock Season 1 is one of the most satisfying DVD purchases my wife and I have ever made. We have rewatched it 3-4 times all the way through and certain individual episodes way more than that.

12-12-2008, 09:36 PM
The Dark Knight Blu Ray - very good transfer, haven't watched much extras, very annoyed at BD-Live.

Imation Atom 8gb Flash Drive - teeny tiny, could fit it in my wallet if I didn't already have another flash drive in there. Got on sale from Fry's for $28, currently loaded up with music and attached to my PS3 so I don't have to use up HD space.

TLC FX-6 - decent, lots of arms, but could be a little more exciting, and stability is weak due to foot design (should be wider, accurate or not). I was expecting a little better sculpt and paint too.

TLC General Grievous - Good sculpt minus the oddball shoulder half-armor and weird hand poses. Figure feels a little wobbly, fragile. Articulation is good. Paint is a little odd but works. Mixed, but mostly good.

12-13-2008, 06:42 PM
Bunch of Indiana Jones Titaniums (on clearance @ Kmart for $3 each)

LEGO 7621 Indiana Jones and the Lost Tomb (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/7621) (my second one, I'm buying additional copies of all the OT sets)

Also picked up the old Sahara movie figures from 21st Century Toys at WM. Both figures are in Arab disguise. I thought they'd look good in an Indy diorama.

Three $20 PS3 games for my brother for christmas

Thursday I got a NIB LEGO 7418 Scorpion Palace (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/7418) I won off eBay. Part of the 2003 Adventurers theme, it's a set I always wanted but never got around to getting. I paid five dollars over original retail price so I thought it was a pretty good deal. The set builds an Indian palace and features a LEGO elephant. I'm going to integrate it into the Indy line.

12-17-2008, 09:02 AM

My haul from today's spur-of-the-moment shopping trip. I was finished and back on the road home by noon, but got caught in an ice storm and was stuck on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere for over three hours. Finally a salt truck came and the roads were passable again (southern Indiana is quite hilly and without adequate traction, roads there are rather difficult to traverse). So a four-hour shopping trip turned into nine-hour ordeal. The things I do to find toys :D Great haul though!
