Invasion of the NEWBIE kind!!
« on: June 3, 2003, 04:35 PM »
That's right, I'm a newbie to Vintage Star Wars collecting.

My name is Joel Lemon.  I'm 26, married with no kids.  I live in Redmond, WA(about 10 miles from Seattle).  

Some of you may know me from yojoe.com, joecustoms.com, and for a very short time rebelscum.com.  I've been trading/collecting GI Joes for a while and am about to complete my collection.  I started collecting vintage Star Wars about 3 weeks ago and am up to 20 figs, only 2 of which are complete.  I've got a loooooong way to go. :)

I'll be seeing you all around the board!

Welcome to JediDefender Joel!  Glad you swung by to check us out...  So, delving into the Vintage Star Wars realm, eh?  Cool!  Just remember to be patient, look for some good deals, and keep your wits about you, and you should be able to put together a real nice collection of Vintage goodies in no time!

Looking forward to seeing you around the boards here at JD!  And feel free to drop any of the staff a line if you've got any questions about anything.  Enjoy...

- Matt

Thanks Matt!  You know in all the time I've been collecting figures, that was the first time a moderator of ANY site left me a personal message!  You guys sure know how to make a guy feel welcome! ;D

Welcome, indeed.

I tried to salvage my GI Joe collection, but as fate would have it, I was rough on my Joes back in the day, and none of the figures were worth the time digging them out of the attic. Of course, one day I will buy a GI Joe figure or something, just to place among my other trophies of childhood (TNMT, Ghostbusters, etc), now if only Hasbro would make a decent Cobra charactor....  :-\... I haven't been to a GI Joe board before, so tell me, am I the only one craving a regular Cobra trooper or Crimson guard figure, instead of these super-armored villians I've seen all over the pegs?

Anywho, welcome.

Thanks guys.  Angry Ewok, If you want some joes you now have a contact.  I've got my trade list up with some Joes on it...

Loved the "YO Joel", Jengo Fettish.  Believe it or not but THAT was the first time anyone but me has said that! That was my favorite thing to yell during the cartoons when I was a youngun...
