Yeah, scary is right.  It's so bizarre when something a stroke hits a guy at the peak of his condition.  I'm amazed at expecting him back in 6 weeks, all the best to him.

I purchased a few Imperial Kubricks from Dan and can't wait to set up my Kubrick shelf in my new room.  He's a great guy to deal with as always!

What a fun week we had!  We hit Disney for four days and Universal Studios for a day as well.  I think we picked the right time to go because there were hardly any lineups to deal with.  Star Tours, Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, Matterhorn, Radiator Springs Racers -- just so many fun rides.  I'm normally a big wimp, but it was so worth pushing myself to try them out.  I still couldn't bring myself to try the California Screamin' rollercoaster though!

Naturally, I had to grab some collectibles too!

Jedi Mickey's Starfighter - I don't even remember hearing about this coming out, so it was a neat surprise to find.




Ambush at Star Tours - I only found one of these sets, there was no way I could pass on this set with Vader.




Star Tours Search for the Rebel Spy - During the Star Tours ride, one person is chosen from the group as the "rebel spy" and their pic is shown on the screen.  My wife was chosen!




Droid Factory - My daughters and I each made 2 droids and had a lot of fun doing it.  I went with a red & white theme for both, gotta show my Canadian colours!  I still need to come up with names for them...




Vinylmation Pins sets - I haven't purchased any of these pins online before, but seeing them in person they were much cooler.




Vinylmation Droids Pins and Regular Pins - The Droid series pins are "Junior" ones, so a little shorter and come blind packed with 5 per package.  There are 14 in total to collect.  I was pretty stoked to get only OT ones (C-3PO, R5-D4, 4-LOM, IG-88, 2-1B), there are also some PT pins and Star Tours pins.




R2-D2 Mickey Ears hat - I just couldn't pass on the chance to dress like a kid and wear some Mickey ears with a Star Wars style.




R2-D2 Light Chaser - Who doesn't love hearing R2s sound effects?  Throw in some lights and I'm a sucker.  Check out the video!

Indiana Jones Vinylmation Figure - I bought one of these to try my luck at what I'd get from the blind package and got the chase Idol figure.  Pretty cool.




R2-D2 Popcorn bucket - My wife bought this for me!

42% off?  Whoa, that could be dangerously tempting.

My kids bought me these books for each of the last two Father's Days, so they're rather special to me.  To see these statues, I just can't resist. 

They're actually cheaper through BBTS -- $134.99 each -- and shipping to Canada is about half the price, so I put in my order through them.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2014
« on: January 20, 2014, 03:40 PM »
I'm certainly hoping to see the next couple waves of the Black Series, both 3-3/4" (Wave 4 and more) and 6" figures (Wave 4 and more).  I'm hoping we'll see the 6" Scout and Speeder Bike too.

Sounds great guys, I hope to cover everything multiple times.  My daughters have become daredevils along with their mother, so the rides will be a big focus.  Since we're going in between Christmas break and Spring break, I'm hoping the lines will be a little quicker to get through.

I should really do some research to see what collectibles I can hope to find at Disney.  I hope they're still doing those Build-A-Droids.

12" Figures / Re: 1/6 Han Solo - Hoth
« on: January 10, 2014, 02:55 AM »
Besides getting Willrow Hood made...getting Hoth Han with a Brown coat is the second greatest achievement of my Collecting Career.  Man that was awesome...cool that they are making both and acknowledging my gadflyness

Well done, Scott.  Well done.  8)

Kubricks / Re: Show me Your Kubes!
« on: January 10, 2014, 02:30 AM »
I haven't looked at Kubricks for quite a long time, but I just wanted to say how awesome those dioramas are Dan.  The use of spray foam for the snow is genius.

These are all I have these days, but I'm hoping to add some more Imperials.

I started this thread over 8 years ago but wasn't able to go at the time.  My wife and daughter (age 4 at the time) and mother-in-law went, and now it's MY turn!  Our family -- 2 daughters (now 12 and 6), wife and I -- are going at the end of January and I'm pretty damn excited!

We have 4 day passes with the FastPass option and are staying at a hotel across the street from the entrance. 

I can't wait!

I like to display one of every Jedi, so these sets are a must have for me.  Seeing them on sale, I couldn't resist, though they're not supposed to be available until Nov 1 up here in Canuckia.
