Other Collectibles / Star Wars NASCAR collectibles
« on: June 15, 2013, 12:20 PM »
Hey all.  I've been kind of bitten by the collecting bug again, but since Hasbro has had nothing to offer, I went back and started upgrading my NASCAR stuff.  Nothing too big, but I went and upgraded my 1999 1:24 scale Jeff Gordon Episode 1 car to the Elite version (found it on Ebay for $12.99 + modest shipping), and gave the original one to my son to play (at 2 1/2 he's into cars now).

I also started looking into the 1:64 scale (Like Sheldon half the size....double the fun!).  I've managed to pick up a John Andretti episode II car at that scale with an opening hood and trunk, with an Episode I Jeff Gordon version on the way (probably in today's mail) to compliment the 1:64 scale cars from the Cheerios promotion back in 2002.  These are nice because they already come in their own collector's case!  The tricky one to get is going to be the Jeff Gordon Episode III car in 1:64 scale.  I don't know why this one is so rare, other than he won the race when driving that car.

I've also purchased collector cases for all my 1:24 scale cars.  It's forced a bit of a re-arrangement of the cars, but they do look nice.  I'll update pictures soon.

Who's watching what?

I'll watch the swim events when I can as well as track & field.  Hard to do without spoilers because NBC's coverage is horrendous!

Does anyone remember these gems?  Here's a classic commercial!

Me and my best friend had a bunch of these sets when we were kids.  I remember taking my Northwoods Trailblazer set and the wilderness explorer set (A pontoon boat, Cessna plane and 6-wheel ATV...the boat connected to the plane to make a sea plane!) and we would play in the stream behind his house!  Great times!

I've pretty much given up on seeing these in a store.  I know some here have much better luck so if someone could help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Jocasta's Reading Room / Revan

I received this book As a Christmas gift and I'm a couple of chapters into it.  Pretty good so far, and is probably required reading for KOTOR fans!

I don't know if anyone caught this 1/2 hour special on Cartoon Network...but it was pretty funny.

Already up at Amazon.

Not 100% sure what this game will be like, but Force Unleashed for the Wii is pretty cool.

Celebration V: Orlando / C V Build-A-Droid swap meet
« on: August 5, 2010, 11:52 AM »
I'm hoping for a little help here.

Since I cannot go to C v, I need some help with some BAD parts:

-Head and middle leg of the blue astromech from the ROTJ wave
-Left arm and right leg of the YVH droid

I have various droid parts I can send to who ever is willing to help out.

Someone has created a "working lightsaber".

So who is going to add this baby to their collection?   :D

Check it out!

The throne environment will be sold separately, but looks pretty cool.  I'm expecting it to look very similar the Thrawn's command chair.

Pre-order is Friday 18 December.
