I've been away...
« on: July 15, 2005, 08:53 AM »
...I take a couple months off and this place blossoms like nobody's business! I'm very happy for you guys at JD, this place is a lot more active than it was when I left.

As I mentioned sometime before, I got married in May (the Friday after Episode III came out, actually.) as well as a serious promotion and transfer at work, so things have been way too busy for me. On top of that, I have taken quite a break in the Star Wars toy collecting area, as most of the E III stuff hasn't caught my eye (Except for the nice Threepio, who filled in the hole I had in my loose VOTC collection.) And those Evolution toys look to be all that I hoped for!

Anyways, it's nice to come home again. I can't believe how much I've missed around here!

Here's a shot of me on my honeymoon in the Mayan Riviera that I thought everyone would enjoy:



To all the new guys: looking forward to seeing you around!

Welcome back!  Great pic, congratulations on the wedding/promotion/etc. 

You've been gone about 2 months!  I was wondering when you'd be back... are you going to continue your awesome dioramas?

 :P

Thanks everyone. Looks like I picked the perfect time to get back into the game, with all the great Comic Con news.

Nice shorts...

Welcome back Bobb, good to have you back on board.  Yeah, a lot of new faces but we're still Cheers and all that stuff.

Hey, welcome back Bobb!  Glad to see that Muftak is no longer "Muftak (on hiatus)"...

But if you're going to finally pop back in after a few months, you better have some updated pix of some of your insanely incredible custom playset/dioramas!

But if not, I guess I'll let it slide, since you had all that "real world" stuff going on...  ;)  Congrats on the nuptuals, and the work gig.  Great to hear.

Looking forward to seeing you around this joint some more!  8)

Gee, Matt. If only you'd look in the customs section, you'd be blown away! ;D

Dressel said it. With no reason for toy runs lately, I've been able to get quite a bit of work done on the monster...

Uh...  Whoops.  I knew that!  :-[

But with all the time you've had off, you should've been finished with Level 3 by now as well, you slacker!  :P

Regardless, I greatly look forward to it when you find the time to polish things off...
