That may or may not work. If you picked up the bootlegs I'm thinking of, the plastic quality is roughly that of old cheese. It's worth a shot, though :up: thus why i used emblem cement in the hollows of the legs. it should only break if a weight of huge proportions, about 5-10 lbs is dropped on it....

i always wondered in the War Within comics why the Fallen was thusly named, it is like Tolkien's mythology's Satan character going from Melkor to Morgoth, but Morgoth just sounds cooler than the Fallen. THAT and Games Workshop has a name for the fallen Dark Angels in the Warhammer 40k line, The Fall...

I was trying to think of what was wrong with the FF movie but the acting was one of those issues. I remember watching the Marvel Cartoons and enjoying those a lot more than the Marvel movies. X men's only two redeeming factors were Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman. I had to admit that Jackman did a ...

OK peeps, I think we've made the point well enough now. Back to toy discussion. I still can't find the toaster bot. Sad. I really wanted him for comedic value! As well as the other appliance formers. i did spot a HA Sideswipe at Target. I wanted to buy him, but with the b.s. that has went on with m...

Ha! A Disney army would probably look like a kiddified Skaven army... I just hope that Disney doesn't ruin any future Marvel movies. That's not saying much though. Have you seen Fantstic Four? Ugh... I hated the Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer sequel movie. It just was horribly done and the wr...

I remember back in the nineties when the U.S. government was going after Bill Gates for monopolies. Aren't Wal Mart and now Disney, to name a few, doing the same thing? But this is news to me, I will have to let them know at work now so they don't get boxes marked Disney-Marvel, or some sort of logo...

That and the name of the series.. The Transformers. Rubbish I say. It should have been called "Mass Shifting Robots From Another Planet". The Japanese make winning cartoon and television series with horrendously long names. But yes, page sixty five and two years later for the wit? Absolutely horrend...

Well, not free , but not paid for on the spot like screws at a hardware store. The thing is that insurance is for the oddball chance that something happens. For cars, it'd be a wreck. However, health care is something everybody needs at regular intervals of life, making an insurance model a very po...

It shouldn't just be the medical insurance, it should be automotive as well then. I think if one doesn't use their insurance because of good health, no car accidents, etc. then the "money" saved should compound so that way if in the event something major does happen to the person who is healthy, saf...

under some employers and coverages, one might find that smoking, alcohol use, etc. is not a good thing to do while under those plans. no one wants to cover someone who makes poor health choices throughout their lives because that costs money and resources. nothing is perfect. not even the private in...

I am all for options, as everyone knows, but I would prefer to not have a government run health care since my experiences have taught me for a minor problem being in effect that I had to wait my turn for eight hours in a government/military run hospital.
