I was in awe when watching Aliens yesterday. Awe that Horner got paid for reusing chunks of his Star Trek scores. Oddly enough, I noticed this as well- I was watching Aliens yesterday, and during the Newt rescue scene, I was like "hey, wait- that's "Battle in the Mutara Nebula" playing!" I've watch...

Do you guys ever go through this experience when listening to such beautiful music? :up: The scene in Jaws where Brody is at the kitchen table with his son made me cry. I freely admit that. For years I searched for that specific accompanying piece, and was not able to find it until either the 25th ...

Usually why it's a good idea to check the toys section of the site as well as the reviews forum here and the claims thread to see what's been done already. Not sure if yours reflects my opinions on the toy, since I had done the first review of ROTF Voyager Starscream. Again, I'm SORRY. I did check ...

I'm surprised they actually showed any concern at all, considering they've been hitting the kerosene themselves. Gives glue sniffers a bad name. T...

For the record, I was actually unaware that I was doing a second review of Starscream until after I was done. I am sorry that my opinions reflect the same as the first review. It was unintentional.

Allingham credited "cigarettes, whisky and wild, wild women – and a good sense of humour" for his longevity. See, this is what gets me about life in general- how can people absolutely say that drink and smoke are killers? I mean, I'm having the toughest freakin time quitting smokes, but I enjoyed t...

Given how many versions of Prime I have purchased over the years, the one that keeps making me think "yeah, that's a ****in cool truck" is the Leader Nightwatch Prime from the first movie. Bayformers were pretty damn cool in their re-design, and I thought the toys reflected that as well. Also, becau...

I'm actually having the same exact issue that you are facing, but the roles are reversed- I have two newer kittens and one older female who just gave birth to a litter of 4.

Given the small pond between us, I'm not sure how retail differs on your side, but there has been an influx of Sigma 6 Joes around Massachusetts for a while now; generally on discount as well. There are also the cheap knock offs of Joes which I believe are called "The Corps" or something to that eff...

I'm probably not familiar with 95% of your collection, but I like it out of sheer respect for the "family photos" and groupings. It would really be cool to see a family photo of your entire Go Bot collection..... One quick question on the Autobot cars- How come you don't display Ironhide and Ratchet...

I just noticed I mispelled the name "ralph". You would think, after 33 years, I would know how to properly spell my own dad's name. :p
