Back in Summer of 2002, I went on collecting Hiatus due to moving from Alaska and going to OTS for 3 months.

Once I got out and settled in California, I just didn't feel the need to get back into it save for a couple of figure (Saga Pilot Obi-Wan, and 12" Jedi Figures like Yoda, Plo Koon and Ki Adi Mundi) and a few bvehicles like the to scale X-Wing and Imperial Shuttle.

I did get into collecting Oddball stuff, like the Jedi Academy pennant I got from Disneyland and a few other items, but I didn't really get back into collecting until this year.  Even now though, I've scaled back, I don't buy two of each figure so I can open one, and I'm really more in to the prop replicas and the oddball stuff than I am the regular Hasbro lines.

I think the only thing I regret about my hiatus is missing out on the AOTC Obi-Wan LE Lightsaber.  :-[

I just called the 1-800 number and they aren't accepting orders for this pack anymore.  >:(

3483 are my hero!

I hope they put them up for order soon.  :)

There are some new pics of these on the JD website check them out here.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Sideshow 12" EU Poll

I bet we'll see all of the figures up for the vote, the vote is most likely what we'll see first.

I think it's been said before that Sideshow is checking out fan sites to see what collectors want, so I wouldn't be too suprised if we got a Kyle Katarn down the road.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Speculate for me

Although I pretty much stopped collecting vintage in 1985, I do look around occaisionally just in case I decide to get back into it and here's what I've noticed:

I think the movie year has pushes some of the prices up just because there is some renewed interest, but as always, if you look around, you can find what you want for a good price.

Good Info Dale, makes me wish I had waited just a little bit.  :-\

I managed to pick up my first of the Celebration II passes (I missed out on getting a set because I was at OTS at the time).  Does anyone have a list of what passes there are for Celebration II?

I'm not saying this will work for you, but this has always worked for me in the past.

Go to the library, or somewhere that is suited for studying.  (I'va also been known to pull up a table to a comfortable chair at a starbucks).  Make sure you're comfortable and just get to it.  I also find that having my cd player on, or the radio or something in the background can help break the mundane silence of the library, but don't get something that's too distracting.

Don't try to read everything right away.  Pace yourself by reading sections at a time and then taking a break, otherwise your mind will wander off and you won't get anything out of it.  Schedule breaks just to get your mind on something else for a bit, but don't schedule them on time, make them after you get so much of the work done.

My undergraduate was in math so this was particularly important.  WORK EVERY PROBLEM MULTIPLE TIMES!  Practice definitely makes perfect.

Hope this helps you and good luck.   :)

Can't wait to see some of your work smartypants.  I'm not a customizer myself, but I am impressed by a lot of the work by everyone in there.

The photonovels are also a great item of interest for me.  ;D

Diddly, I think I can speak for the rest of the forum when I say.

Damn you!  I'm so FREAKIN' JEALOUS!

Yet another cool set from the people at Disney.

And I have to wait another two years before I can try to get an assignment at Patrick!  ::)

I could not find an "All of the above" vote, so I went with:

Awesome job!  The story is solid as well as intruiging.  I can't wait to see where the plot goes!

I also liked the facial expressions you added, not perfected yet, but well done for a first effort.  How did you pull it off btw, photoshop manipulation?

Bring on Chapter 13!

Don't know Lando, and I don't care....I don't look ahead and I'm enjoying the ride.

Kind of late on this, but Sci Fi had a small Marathon of new BSG episodes last night.  Hope any of you that needed to play catch-up did.

« on: August 17, 2005, 07:26 PM »
I think it's great that some other "quality" posters from RS are finding there way here...even if it's because of RS technical difficulties.  I hope they stay.  I also hope the Matkatnadams and others of his ilk stay away from this site.  :-*

I also know a few of the Colorado folks are starting to frequent the store reports section and are pleasantly suprised by the registered member feature.  I think that will keep them here.  (Good folks all of them and hope to make, or host, the next barbecue).  ;D

As far as the vintage, I try to contribute what I can there (as I did in my CSW/BHC/RS days), but it's tough since I really haven't collected vintage since I was a kid...back when that's all there was!  :o
