Other Collectibles / What's the Favorite part of your collection?
« on: April 12, 2005, 06:19 PM »
I was askedhis by Yodafan at a small BBQ at my place and I really had a tough time answering it.  Every part of my collection has it's own little appeal to me, otherwise I wouldn't have it, but still, what is my favorite???

My vintage figures are really special to me since they were what got me started in this whole crazy hobby.  I don't collect vintage anymore because I think it would ins some small way make the vintage figures I owned and spent countless hours playing with somehow less special.  I'm sure plenty of you disagree, but hey, that's just me.

My collection has evolved as this hobby has in the past 27 years.  I guess what really appeals to me in my collection are the odd pieces that most people and the casual collector might not have.  Stuff like:

-The Diecast NASCAR cars.
-My Movie Posters (which look great now that they're all up on my living room wall!)
-The odd exclusive figure like Theater Luke, Toy Fair and Lava Vader, Holo Yoda and the Holiday Sets....just because they are different and geared toward the collector and not necessarily the kids.


So what's the stand-out item(s) in your collection???

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Rebelscum Spam Mail? WTF???

All of you who have asked to be removed from the mailing list (banned), might want to check to make sure they have.  I still have not been....guess Philip thought I wouldn't check or something and he could keep sending spam.

Barada, Don't even try to post a farewell, it'll probably just get deleted.  I wasn't very critical at all, and mine was just flat out deleted.

It's really that sort of treatment that made me want to leave, not the two e-mails.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Why did you select your avatar?
« on: April 12, 2005, 04:39 PM »
I started using my avatar about a year and a half ago when I became part of the 400th Missile Squadron.  The picture is a shot of the 10 RV's coming into the range in the Pacific from a test firing of a Peacekeeper from Vandenberg AFB.

The 400th MS is my first operational assignment as a commissioned officer in the AF, and the 400th is standing down in October of this year due to a treaty with the Russians.

I thought having the Avatar would be an intersting tribute.

Other Collectibles / Re: Jedi Mickey plush from SW Weekends
« on: April 12, 2005, 04:09 PM »
The regular price for these plush bean bag toys is usually $12-$15.  As far as the availability?  I'm pretty sure they're only available at the parks for SW Weekends.

I cannot believe that I once hunted night and day for this "thing" ugh :P

Shorty after Return of the Jedi, Princess Leia had a short career as a professional wrestler! :o

just watch out for my hands Wednesday night... I hope Hooter's drink prices are at least reasonable...

I have an old menu from the Orlando Hooters.  It has coffee for a price of $10 and underneath (If you're buying coffee in this joint you won't know what price youre paying!)   ;D

Jaye, I think Corran Horn sumed it up perfectly.  It really wasn't about the e-mail.  I made that fairly clear in my farewell post that was deleted.  If the thread were I said goodbye to my friends in there that are not members here or at GH turned in to a bunch of the newer members flaming me and others....why not just lock it as was done to coutnless other threads in the past???  The reason: it's the same reason why the e-mail, and the why the bannings threads were deleted.  A lot of the older members became critical of the way Philip Wise is running the site.  I may be wrong, but it's looking like he's got a real ego problem and it's coupled with TF.N and RS making him money, and this is the last year he's going to be able to make large sums of money with these sites.  Ask a lot of the people who have been collecting what happened 20 years ago to this hobby when the prospects of new movies was gone.

I don't care what happens to RS anymore.  I will not post there and I told Philip that I no longer want to be on the mailing list (banned) and I did not appreciate my farewell to my friends there being deleted after being a member of those boaards for 5 years.  I know I'm not the end all-be all of this hobby and I do not expect a mas exodus of the RS forums because I'm not there anymore (but wow that would be cool eh?).  I'm a fan, of the films and this hobby, and after contributing to those boards for as long as I had I think it's just wrong in how they're being run.
