Actually, yours seems like a good plan Phruby. That would make more sense. Lets see if we can get in touch with Blaster and see if he wont mind postponing TPPDK's european vacation a couple of weeks.

You are right though, it does seem to take forever sometimes. I don't really know why that is. ???

I think it's a customs thing with international shipping.  Back in January, I sent 4 figures to a friend in Canada, and it took 6 full weeks to get there!

I'm going to send it to Findswoman.

I've got my pictures taken at Disneyland last night. I got some pretty weird looks from people and cast members as I setup the figure in front of the castle and elsewhere. My wife was completely embarrised as I ran round Disneyland with Obiwan in the stroller and set him up in various locations. I figure weirder things have been done at Disneyland. I need to photoshop them and post them tonight.

Darth_Ennis, have you considered setting up a web site with all the pictures people take and an interactive list for others to sign up?

I'd love to do just that, but unfortunately I still dont have my own internet access yet. I would love to see it happen though.

Omigosh, is it my turn already?  Yikes!  :o

Phruby, I'm looking forward to seeing your Pimp Daddy Kenobi photos -- I bet he had a great time at Disneyworld, even if Mrs. Hruby didn't.  ;)

I can totally relate.  My brothers who were at the basketball game with me wanted absolutely no part of me when I stopped for pictures.

Well here is Pimp Daddy's visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! No.... not the Flamingo Showgirl Theater on Ball. I mean Disneyland!!!



Here we have Obiwan taking the traditional tourist picture in from of the train station on Main Street with the floral Mickey in the background.


Obiwan was riding in style!


"Man the cannons! I just saw the biggest rat in the world! And I don't mean Eisner!"




Obiwan hanging out at Walt's firehouse apartment on Main Street, USA.


Waiting for chocolate chip cookies to be made by the Junior Chief kids.


DUCK!




Having fun storming the Castle.

Sneak attack on Princess Aurora (aka Sleeping Beauty)
She ran off before ObiWan could get any closer. :'(


Hey look! A well.


Sure is deep. I think I hear someone wishing down there!


In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Room!

"I need to pee."


"Where is the restroom?"


Lets check the map!

A ride on King Arther's Carousel  (of Progress)


Foot stomping time with Bill Hill and the Hill Billies.


It's time to head off to Planet Oakland to visit the Findswoman.


I guess they had some trouble with that ship.


Let's check the arriving flights.



This droid kept babbling on about excess baggage.


Checking out the safety video.


Getting on the shuttle.


"I wonder what the in-flight movie is?"


"Oh no! Not at crazy RX pilot again!"


"Do you know the way to Oakland?"



"How the heck did I get to Mustafar?"

Meeting up with long lost cousins.


This place is pretty plush.


This place is as expensive as Frank & Sons!


Well, that's Pimp Daddy's trip to Disneyland. I hope you enjoyed it.  ;D

AWESOME!!!!!!!  Sure glad he didn't fall into that well.  Were you at least a little nervous??

Not nervous. The well is only four feet deep. I was more worried about him falling out of the stroller and getting lost.

Well they say, " It ain't easy but it's neccessary!" Great pics. I hope he had a great time.

Of course I do think booking a trip on Star Tours to get him to Findswoman's must have been a bit expensive. ;D

BTW I never realised how small that Donald Duck statue was. And Eisner is the biggest rat in the park. :P

I guess Obi wan wasn't able to get into Club 33.  Even after using a mind-trick!

Great pictures!!!  Well-done!
