When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."

-Jack Burton

I adore Big Trouble in Little China (1986). I remember Dad taking us to the video store and picking the VHS up, saying: "You guys will really like this.." I pouted and probably said '"no", and he said something along the lines of: "It's like Indiana Jones with lots of adventure..."

I guess a few comparisons can be made to the Indiana Jones series, but, the point is I did really like this film. Over the years I have watched it again and again, in all it's 80s glory.

I just could not resist with I saw these. Laughed and then purchased Jack Burton and Lo Pan :)

Which Lo Pan? Little old basket case on wheels or the ten foot tall roadblock? -Jack Burton

You can get yours from Think Geek, or, if you are in NZ like me, from Mighty Ape.

Okay. You people sit tight, hold the fort and keep the home fires burning. And if we're not back by dawn... call the president. -Jack Burton
