Can't we have a Squadron?

I'll settle for a flight.  :)

Sorry to hear that Bilbo.  I think a good starting place would be the classified section or the trade section.

Another good and thorough review Jesse.

I also think it's kind of wierd that Hasblo can't give figures some sort of standard articulation.

Cute puppy Jaybird.

Just thought I'd post a semi-cute Bailey story.  About two weeks ago she came in the house at about 6:30 in the morning (I leave the back door open for her so she can go out on nights I don't have an alert the next day) and she hopped up on the bed meowing like crazy.

I gave her a little ear scratching and rolled over to go back to sleep when I noticed she had brought me a present....a snake!  It was a garter snake about 1.5 to 2 ft long and STILL ALIVE!  Needless to say I didn't need coffee to wake up that morning!  :o

I had a nice long chat with Bailey telling her I appreciated the gesture, but more live snakes in the bed!  :)

$320 US for the LE Obi-Wan Saber from Master Replicas.

Luckily, I had a $50 off code for joining the collector's society.

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.  >:(

3641 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
« on: August 21, 2005, 06:19 PM »
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.

Other Collectibles / Re: Star Wars Passes

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.   :)
