Whatd'up?
« on: January 9, 2005, 08:20 PM »
Hey guys; figured since I used to spend most of my time in here, I'd just post here.

Been a while! :) I'm back though. I've definitely narrowed down my collecting, mainly Master Replicas and Gentle Giant (OT only with GG). It'll be a great year for Star Wars this year, plenty of cool "Other Collectibles" swag to go around, so I expect to be 'round here more often.

Awe man, I'm feelin awe sappy now, I missed you guys!

Hey Adam, nice to see you back!!

Yeah, it looks like it'll be a big year for Star Wars collectibles, for sure, but if you're going to be sticking to OT with the GG stuff, looks like you'll miss out on some of it. Are you going to be picking up the PT stuff from MR, or are you skipping that as well?

Yeah, I'll be picking up the PT stuff from Master Replicas. We're in it for 3 different ROTS Clone Trooper helmets this year, along with a ROTS Vader, amongst many other items! :) MR will be my main focus this year and will take precedent over all else.

Only collecting OT stuff with Gentle Giant will save some major bank, but there's still a lot of OT stuff coming; Leia minibust, 3PO, Sandtroopers, IG88; Chewie statue, 3PO statue, Vader statue (which is an idealized version of all Vaders combined), Sandtrooper/Dewback statue, and sometime a TaunTaun w/ Rider... So I've still got my work cut out for me, and will definitely need a break! :)

This is going to be an AWESOME year for food collectibles since M&M Mars and Burger King will both be doing huge, Saga-wide, promotions.

I'm more or less done with figures, except special items (Silver figs, con figs, VOTC, Clone Wars cartoon, etc).

Hopefully I'll be remodeling soon. No big themes or anything, just a fresh coat of paint and some new shelves. I still toy with the idea of a Star Tours theme, but wont be going that direction. I've got so many LOTR replicas, they wouldn't look right ;)

But hey, it's good to be back!

Where's good ol Matt C? He better still be around...

Don't worry, pinky's still here.  Welcome back Adam.  Since you're still into food premium's, I'll be happy to help out with stuf from north of the border, if you like.

 :D

I'm still here, of course!  Welcome back, fuzzball!  We've missed you...   :'(

We were actually just discussing your 2 1/2 month "disappearance" over in the staff section last week, wondering if we'd done something to provoke it since it seemed so sudden.  We figured since Scott can be such a dickhead sometimes, that it must be his fault.  Glad to see that's apparently not the case...   8)  But if it was Scott's doing, we all profusely apologize on his behalf...

Heck, you even missed your birthday wishes here a while back (see my OLD PM to you here trying to remind you of them).   ;)

Anyway, good to have you back around.  Must say, I was rather tempted to bite on those Fact Files of yours last week (at the most reduced price), but after the wife's crazy Christmas shopping, I decided that it was best not to buy them.  Hopefully you found 'em a good home!

Since you've left, I've expanded into MR's mini-saber line, and the Gentle Giant busts finally, so I'm ready, willing, and able to talk about those with ya'!  But for now, I've gotta get my ass to work, so I'll catch you back on the boards later...  Welcome back!

- Matt

I've got so many LOTR replicas, they wouldn't look right ;)

Adam, I spent this past Saturday having a mega-LOTR viewing marathon!  All three EE's in a row, back-to-back-to-back.  11.5 straight hours (less whatever the credits running time is).  Even kicked Patty out of the house for the festivities...   ;)  Pretty cool experience watching them all like that.

You done it yet?   8)

On an unrelated note, unfortunately you'll see that we're still a "little light" in the MR prop collecting department here.  That's one of the few lines that the JD'ers have still not delved in to too much (aside from Beth).  But man, would I ever love to!  But hey, at least a lot of us have expanded into the mini-sabers!   ;)

So how are you enjoying your AT-AT?  I assume you've already ordered the Snowspeeder as well, right?  Very cool stuff there.  Very cool...

P.S.  I think there were still a few folks waiting for you to chim in here.  Did you win?!?   :P
