Hello,another Star Wars Geek
« on: March 11, 2004, 02:15 AM »
Hi all,My name is Ricardo and I have been into Star Wars since I opened my first Return of the Jedi book back in the 5th grade.  I have been collecting since '96 and now mostly focus on newer stuff POTJ and above.  I  especially love anything to do with Jedi/Sith,and the whole Star Wars universe in general.  I learned about this site by clicking on another members link in his sig over on RebelScum,which I am also a newbie there.  I look forward to being part of this great site and hopefully trading/selling with my fellow Star Wars geeks. ;D MTFBWY

Hey Ricardo!  Welcome to JediDefender.   8)  I'm sure you'll enjoy it here, as we've got some of the friendliest and most knowledgeable collectors in the galaxy 'round these parts...

So kick up your feet and relax, and we look forward to chatting (and trading) with you around the JD boards!

Ricardo,

Welcome, I am glad I could help you out on my extra clone troopers at regular retail price.

As I mentioned earlier, this is a nice site with some good collecting folks.  Some are known to wear sweaters in Cali though ;D.

Anyhow, welcome aboard!

Oh no you didn't just say that!  Especially before you've even gotten your hands on my Clone and Kit figures that I'm currently holding for you...   ::)  Risky move there One Eyed Willie!   :-*

But if you're the reason Ricardo's decided to join us, then I guess I'll forgive you just this once...  But watch yourself!   ;)

LOL,you guys are a close bunch here huh? ;D  Thanks for the warm welcome guys!  Yeah,Fish hooked me up sick with him being gracious enough in parting out his few remaining Troopers to me.  He helped bring forth my vision: "And as my first act with this new authority,I will create a Grand Army for the Republic." :P :)

You'll find a lot of "old timers" from Scum have moved from that site into other sites like here and elsewhere.  So most of us have a pretty solid comradery going among ourselves.  We're always welcoming new folks in too though because I for one love the additional input in conversations.

Glad you came over after checking the site out...  I think you may find a new home around these parts.

I think so too.  Scum is cool,but JD from the short time I have been here feels alot more user friendly.  The members here definately seem to look out for one another.  :)

Does it look anything like this one, Ricardo?   :o

As for us being a "tight bunch" here at JD - yeah, I'd say that's pretty darned accurate, and kind of our mantra here...  That's how we got our nickname of "the Cheers of the collecting community"!   8)

BTW, check your private messages (at the top of the screen).

WOW! now that's a Grand Army of the Republic! :o  I can only dream of having a  fighting force that big,mine is more like a platoon+2 Gunships.LOL   I don't think there is enough money in my defense bugdet to fund such an Army. ;D

Thanks for the welcome.  Cheers sounds like a good place to be,especially when everyone knows your name,wants and haves. :P :)

By the way, it was great meeting you yesterday down at Wizard World L.A. Ricardo!  Hopefully we can get together from time to time around here in the future...   8)

And I'll get your package out to you as soon as Jared gets his trunk unlocked so we can get to your figures!   ::)

 ;)
