Well hello there!
« on: July 18, 2004, 10:58 AM »
Finally decided to register, been bookmarked for a while now.

I've known Jesse James for a while, he's been over my place a few times for a few SW get togethers.  Briefly, I'm 32, married, I pretty much travel the east US hiring brokers to represent our company.  Have a home in Pittsburgh.  Western PA contact for the PA SW Collectors Society www.pswcs.com I also frequent www.thejawa.net/pitswcc

Currently have over 3600 SW items in the collection both modern and vintage.  Lots of vintage figures both carded and loose, lots of the vintage vehicles/playsets, and all kinds of quirky SW items (I love the oddball stuff)

I also am kind of a SW packrat-I love to collect stuff like articles/ads/etc.  Also do all the posters/comics/and really anything SW.

Love to attend the cons WW/San Diego/Pgh toyshows-comicons/San Diego CC/ and the Celebrations!

MTFBWY!

Hey Bob!  Gave you a welcome in the E1 bootleg thread but glad you came by here to say hi too...

Bob's a top-notch guy...  I can attest to this.  He actually lives only like 20 minutes from me actually.  He does indeed have a very nice collection, and a great focus on Boba Fett (even a dog by the same name  :D ).

I'm glad you've come by and hope you're gonna stick around and become a regular.  You're definitely welcome in my book.

Bob's a super collector...  Lots of stuff.  I really streamline thigns but Bob's all over the board.

Good friends with Bill Cable and many others from the PA and Pittsburgh collecting circles...  Hopefully someone I'll be hanging out with as well as the rest oof the crew from Pittsburgh a good bit out at C3 (god willing I can get there).

Can't say enough good things really...  So welcome Bob, and thanks for finally stopping in.  Any questions or whatever, and you're welcome to ask myself or one of the other staffers around the place.

Take it easy bud!

and Jesse...likewise... and if you need any help w/C3 let me know, we'll probably be carpooling, etc.  hanging out, partying all week long.

We always have a blast!  Hope to see you on the 31st!  Hopefully I'll have some cool stuff from San Diego!

Holy crap!  I didn't think anyone paid attention to a single word I ever said!

This now changes my whole outlook on life itself!

Yeah, I also suggested a few years back about doing troopers in the style of the old "green army men" AKA different poses like kneeling, prone position, etc.

Lo and behold they came out with the clone 3 packs-I may have to have a talk with Hasbro when I'm in San Diego this week ;^)

over the yrs. I've printed out and saved all my "ideas".  Love to talk with someone who influences things over there.

I was about to welcome you over in the SDCC thread Bob, but figured I should check over here first.  Nice to finally have you swing by JediDefender.  Jesse's definitely mentioned you enough times that I feel like I already know you!   ;)  Maybe we can hook up down at SDCC in a few days.  I'll shoot you a PM in a little bit, and we'll try to work out the details.  Who you heading out here with, and how many days will you be at SDCC?

Anyway, great to finally have you aboard, and I look forward to chatting with you around the forums here!  Don't hesitate to give any of the staff a shout if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions on how to make JD a better place.  We're here to serve.  With that, welcome to the Cheers of the Star Wars collecting community.  Enjoy!   8)

- Matt

P.S.  As for this:

Morgbug is old, and Brad is furry.  :-*

I'm great.

Kevin speaks the truth about those two - you'll see.  His being "great" might be debatable though.  Depends on who you ask...   ;)

Welcome Bob!!!!!!!!!

They are all a little off their rockers here (some are literally in their rockers) but they can be trained.  :-*
Have fun and post pictures of your collection if you can, it sound awesome!!

From JediMAC:
Sorry Force Guy, but this isn't how we greet new members here at JD.  "Issues" from other forums stay at other forums.  Fresh starts for everyone here at JD (please)...
  ;)
