Hi!
« on: January 2, 2006, 11:11 AM »
Hi everyone. I just registered over here at Jedi Defender although I have been a lurker for a long time. I like what I see over here.

Some of you may recognize me from my posts at scum. My name is really Alex and I'm not really a captain. Captain just a nickname I got when I was younger from friends who use to say I was good at organzing people and leading. It kind of stuck so I countiune to use it to this day.

My home is in Rochester, NY. There is a very active collecting base in Western NY especially in Rochester and Buffalo. For the most part the collectors that I know help one another out and try to stay one step ahead of scalpers.

I mainly collect the 3 3/4 figures, Kotobukiya's, Code 3 Posters, and the Animated Maquette's. My collecting is also focused on store displays big and small. I also like unique and different "kitchie" Star Wars items as well.

I have started to keep a collecting blog with my thoughts on collecting and photos at Captain Alex & the Shrimp Shack Shooters

I think you guys run a good forum here and after recent events at scum I think a lot of the bad mouthing of JediDefender I have read/heard over the last year is not warrented.

Keep up the good work. This is a place for collectors!

Hey Alex, good to see you at JD.  I'd welcome you but you registered before I did! :)  Actually, seeing your first post on these boards is partly what inspired me to join.

See you in the forums!

Lol! Obviously Dale is not the chick in the avatar ;D

Thanks for a name. I just found a webpage with numerous pictures of her.

Oh my :P

Hey Alex, welcome to JD!  Glad you've finally joined the "Rebellion", and found the light side of the collecting force...  ;)

My Dad was actually born in Rochester, but I'm born and raised in SoCal, so I've been taught to hate N.Y. ever since the '77 World Series.  :P  That aside, kick up your feet, relax, and enjoy JD.  Drop us a line if you've got any questions, comments or suggestions about anything.  Looking forward to chatting with you 'round the boards here...
