Survived my first week...
So did you all go see X2 this weekend? :D 86 Million dollars and #1, why am I not surprised - LOL. I went again Saturday with a full house. The energy was so cool. People were really cheering during the Wolverine/Deathstrike scene.
Well I survided my first week's training at my new job. I forgot how incompetant you feel when learning a new software from scratch - LOL. You might have noticed that updates were few last week. Being on a night shift doesn't leave much energy to work on the site. I spent most of my time sleeping the day away and then working during the hours I usually spend at home updating sections.
Bad news is that I am on the Night shift for the next 2 weeks. After which I will rotate to days for 2 weeks and so on...The good news is that I still had the chance Sunday to work on the Docking Bay. I just haven't found time to crop the pictures and write the text description. I will try and do that sometime this week. I also have gotten some new toys...Thanks to Paul Hruby for going to Dineyland and getting me the Wave 2 Star Tours figures :) I also got the X2 figures and Lord of the Rings. No promises, but I will try and get the reviews up this week. Have a great day :)

BIG things come to those who wait :)
Hey guys, thank you so much for all the emails on the new job and your understanding that updates are slow these past weeks. The cool news is that the Death Star 2 Bay floor is 85% complete. Wait till you see it :D
Wich brings me to the weekend...here in Canada we have a holiday Monday...YES...3
days off. PLENTY of time to finally get ALL the pictures together and
show you the final stages of the Docking Bay. You will have a LOT of pictures
to look at so make sure to get your coffee cup ready - hee hee. I also
BURNED my finger AGAIN with my Hot Glue Gun yesterday. Dripping Glue and
Skin don't go too well together. ALWAYS be VERY carefull when making your
dioramas. I have the scars to proove it :) Oh and I guess I don't have
to tell you Matrix 2 opens tomorrow ;p I am going to the noon show since
I have to work at 4. I will let you know how I liked it on Friday.

My Toy Collection - Two Towers Wave 5 and 6
I hope you had a great weekend :) I spent most of it in bed with a sore
throat feeling like Bantha Poop.
Well I managed to finally clean up the pictures for the Two Towers Figures I bought over 2 months ago. You can probably still find them in stores in case my reviews give you the urge to go shopping :). So head on over to My Toy Collection section, and check out the Reviews for Twilight Ringraith, Galadriel, Prologue Elven Warrior, Frodo Sword, Helm's Deep Aragorn, King Theoden in Armor, Helm's Deep Legolas, Mordor Samwise, Gandalf the White and last but not least...our friend Gollum. You will also find a brand new Group Photo of Waves 1 through 6. You can click on any figure to jump to it's review. I don't have to tell those of you who collect these toys how amazing they are. If you haven't seen the figures yet, it's worth a look.

My Toy Collection - X2 Wave 1 and X-Men Figures
Well I am a couple weeks late, I bought the X2 Figures about 3 weeks ago and they are SWEET :) I am sure I wasn't the only one to go and get a Nightcrawler after seeing the Movie :P That Mutant is Amazing. Unfortunately ToyBiz decided to only release 4 figures for the relase of X2- X-Men United...Logan, Wolverine, Cyclops and our Blue Teleporter Nightcrawler. How lame is that? Where is the rest of the gang :(
Well the good news is that I took pictures of the Original X-Men Movie Figures and decided to Review those as well :) You can click on My Toy Collection and go down memory lane as you read my thoughts on Proffessor Xavier, Logan, Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm, Wolverine, Rogue, Magneto, Mystique, Sabertooth, Toad and Senator Kelly. As with all Toy Reviews, you can also go directly to a Hot Link Sensitive GROUP photo and click on a figure to see it's Review.
If you bought these toys 3 years ago, why not send in your comments. I will add them to the bottom of each figures page.
Finding Nemo Starts Today !!!
I don't think I have to tell you what I will be doing this weekend :) From the feedback I saw on the web, This seems to be Pixar's BEST Movie EVER. Topping Toy Story 1 and 2, Monster's Inc. and A Bug's Life. That's a pretty darn good track record :) Stay tuned Next Week to see what I thought of the movie. Have a GREAT weekend everybody.
