This is something we used to do on the Joe boards I used to be on. It was called " The Travelling Joe", and what we used to do was one of us would take one of our joes (usually a custom) take him around our home town and take pics of the figure doing different things, and visiting interesting places. Once the pics were posted we would then proceed to send the figure to the next person and they would do the same. I would like to know if anyone would like to participate in this. If so post your names here.  If there are enough people interested, well do it.Ill start with one of my figs.

That's a neat idea. I want to play. How about a traveling Yoda?

HE would travel whereever the next person lived. Personally I'd love to see him having fun in all parts of the world. Theres been a good enough response to this so lets do it. Hopefully when everyone else sees a couple of the pics others will want to host him. Since Chewie was first Ill send it to him after I finish with my tour around town. I still have to put a few touches on the custom Im making for the trip. Ill reveal him to everyone after Im done which should be another day or so, then Ill take him around town. I think this is going to be fun. ;D

So... is it going to be a Stars figure, or a Joe figure?

When do you think it will be done?  Will it be a fan fic character, or a redo of an existing character?  Have you already decided on who it will be?

Maybe it could be a "travel trooper" - a clone/stormtrooper w/ a tourist camera and a suitcase?   ;)

Maybe he should have a suitcase, or at least come packed in one.  Each customized can add a travel bumper sticker to it!

Yes, I have seen this thing before with 12" dolls on the Men with Dolls forum on Ezboard: Bouncing Betty and Jaunting Jet.  Each person who "hosted" the doll took her around to various places in town and shared photos with everyone, and then added some small accessory or item of clothing to her "suitcase" when it was time to send her on to the next host (similar to the sticker idea suggested by BrentS -- either would work well).

It's a very cool idea, and it would be great fun to do it with SW figures -- count me in, too!  Do you know which figure you're going to use, Ennis?

Well I I like the idea of the travel case any suggestions on what to use. As far as the fig goes Ill have it posted on Tuesday, and possibly take my " Tour Photos" Monday. The reference is pretty obscure but once I saw it I just had to make it. BTW Chewie I will need your addy youre first on the list. I also like the Idea of everyone adding a little something to the box.

Is the figure coming with a list of people to cross off? I guess we should just email the next person of the list for their address once we get the figure.

Who is on the list?
