Yeah, I am one of those people. I play World of Warcraft pretty religiously. The new WoW expansion (Wrath of the Lich King) released on thursday, and I have been devoting a large chunk of my time to the playing of it. So if I were you, I wouldn't expect a terrible amount of posting on the turtle van unless something in the turtle world explodes. Once I get my sufficiant fix, I am sure I will be back to my almost one a day posting habbits. Until then...courage.

Anyway, pretty much all my claw machine animals get sacrificed to my dogs. This is Max with the bear about 30 seconds after I'd given it to him. He had already ripped its face off lol. As you can see, hes already done a number on the couch!

Jurassic Park is my favorite book :-(
Michael Crichton, the million-selling author of such historic and prehistoric science thrillers as "Jurassic Park," "Timeline" and "The Andromeda Strain," has died of cancer, his family said.He died Tuesday in Los Angeles at age 66 after a long battle with the illness.Chrichton was a brand-name author, known for his stories of disaster and systematic breakdown, such as the rampant microbe of "The Andromeda Strain" or dinosaurs running amok in "Jurassic Park," one of his many books that became major Hollywood movies."Through his books, Michael Crichton served as an inspiration to students of all ages, challenged scientists in many fields, and illuminated the mysteries of the world in a way we could all understand," his family said in a statement.The 6-foot-9-inch author was also a screenwriter and filmmaker, earning producing and writing credits for the film versions of many of his titles. He also created the TV hospital series "ER" in 1994.In recent years, he was the rare writer to get on well with President Bush, perhaps because of his skepticism about global warming, which Crichton addressed in the 2004 novel, "State of Favor." Crichton's views were strongly condemned by environmentalists, who alleged that the author was hurting efforts to pass legislation to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide.A new novel by Crichton had been tentatively scheduled to come next month, but publisher HarperCollins said the book was postponed indefinitely because of his illness."While the world knew him as a great storyteller that challenged our preconceived notions about the world around us — and entertained us all while doing so — his wife Sherri, daughter Taylor, family and friends knew Michael Crichton as a devoted husband, loving father and generous friend who inspired each of us to strive to see the wonders of our world through new eyes," his family said.

I know I am a couple days late, but Halloween was the 9th birthday of The Technodrome!
I make references to it all the time in my blog, and if you've never been there, you should check it out! Come rub elbows with the Ninja Turtle elite! lol
Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TECHNODROME!
So I'm pretty excited about this. This is the non-glow in the dark variant on the Japanese exclusive devil-shredder. Surprisingly, this non-glow in the dark variant is much more rare than the glow in the dark one! This was the last Japanese figure I needed to complete the set.
Here are both Devil-Shredders side by side. The box art is actually a little different as well. The silver signature on the glow in the dark variant is that of Kevin Eastman.
