Thanks for the belated wishes guys.  Just got a few gift cards - nothing too special as my bday is so close to Christmas.

Party hard?  Always.  I don't need to have a birthday for an excuse just to throw back a few drinks - just a little bit more is all  ;D

That sux… imagine all the SW goodies you could buy with that $1500 buck :-\

At least they are in a safe place…

Do you go a visit them every once and a while? :P

I usually do a monthly visit just to make sure everything's kosher and to ensure no avalanches or anything of that nature has happened.  I actually get quite disgusted with the amount of boxes I have.  - I never thought I could have too much crap, but I'm far beyond that point now.

My collection resides in my appropriately named "Star Wars Room". 

Yes, I am one of the nerdy ones who has a whole room in his house dedicated to his toys.  The room is on the lower level of the house (not really a basement since it's a walk-out).  The room is about 12x12 with a bunch of shelf units and a display table or two or three.

Jeff has an awesome set up and it made me think twice about leaving all my stuff carded and boxed.  You really need to post a pic of your room Jeff, I know we all enjoyed it (the MN crew that is)   ;)

Ya, I was watching Futurama on AS last night and they had the bumpers which said that the entire cast is going into the studio and the 4 DVD movies should be out by Summer.

All my stuff is boxed in a 10x10x20h climate controlled storage garage.  It's been costing me $130 per month for almost a full year now.   :-\  I'm in a transistional phase in my life right now so I just have a few Alternators and some recent TSC carded figs and Titanium ships around my room.

We (my girlfriend and I) just found a "recipe" for the best chicken/pork breading ever. This is just so damn tasty, and easy to make.

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 envelope dry Italian salad dressing (we use the "Zesty Italian")
6 boneless chicken breasts

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Moisten chicken with water; coat with cheese/dressing mixture. Place in shallow baking dish.
3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes.

We made it with the chicken as the recipe calls for, and it was so tasty we have used it on just about any kind of meat you might like to eat. Boneless pork chops are so good with this stuff on them. Mmmmmm...

I discovered the parmesan chicken recipe a few years ago when I was on Atkins and it's delicous!  I only make mine with the cheese, garlic, and pepper - I'll have to try the dried Italian seasoning mix.  Oh, I also coat the chicken in melted butter, but I suppose that water would be healthier.

I get asked for the recipe almost everytime I make this and I'm frankly too embarrassed to give it out because it's so damn easy to make.   :-\

DCVDP is a great tasting soda, but I'm on a Sprite Zero kick at the moment.

Still haven't gotten around to tasting the new DBC Coke, but I'm intrigued to say the least.

No need to get snotty about it buddy.

You're Lucky that your Wal-Marts stock these sets.  My area stores refuse to stock this particular set.

I totally love the Titanium line for some reason or another.  You'd be happy with the majority of them even if they are out of scale with one another.  I was never able to find the first wave at retail and I believe they catch a hefty price on Ebay (haven't checked in quite some time.)  I've all but given up at this point in finding the 3rd giftset at Wal-Mart.  I am disgusted that Hasbro gives them the right to distrubute exclusives, yet they refuse to stock/re-order shipments at least for my local MN Wal-Marts.  Had the same problem with the Trash Compactor sets and the Twins.

Ok.  Here's the best pic I could get from my camera for the TH RG.

I've since seen the TH Tie twice since my last post.

Anywayz...What I found on the pegs was the following...

2x Imperial Shuttle
3x AT-AT
1x Republic Gunship
2-3x DV Tie (wasn't paying attention at this point)

Not sure if anything got picked over before I went as I don't pay attention to case assortments...

Oh, here's the pic of my loot....My camera didn't do too good of a job on the "foilesk" Titanium lable on the GS where it says Limited vs. Series.  I'll try and take a better pic of the ship's packaging by itself.

I found the new wave this morning at a MN Target consisting of DV's Tie, AT-AT, Imperial Shuttle, and the Gunship.  So I'm happy I got these out of the way, now I just need to track down that third elusive giftset.  -Damn you WalMart!

5278
Isn't there suppposed to be a third gift set out with a raw Falcon??  I found the first two and I thought I heard reports a few weeks back of these being found.... :-\

If they are out, would they still be WM exclusives that I have a horrible time of trying to track down???  Target actually likes to stock these ships and they keep em by the SW stuff which is a real plus.

I've found the TH Tie five times already and I wasn't even actively pursuing it after I found my original.  Hopefully I'll have the same amount of luck with the future hunts.
