Exactly... I am going to have a hard time parting with anything that I've made, but I'll sacrifice something.

I think you should try one of these:

Black Hole Clone with Jetpack
Winter
Calista

I don't think we should rip any sites that don't post it, but I do think we should applaude those that do.

I wasn't planning on ripping any of the sites that don't want to help out some people that could really use the help, but I think it's really ****** of them not to post it. I mean, really... is it because of the petty jealousy that goes on between the respective sites, and how that site doesn't like our site and vice-versa? I don't want to turn this into an us-versus-them topic (again, like we need another one of those) but I just wish that some people could grow up - even for just a few days - and come together to help out a good cause. That's all I ask. After that, you can hate my and my website's guts again. It doesn't bother me at all.

I totally agree, and it says something about the class of a site and where their morals are.  It would be great to see every site mentioned post it, but I have my doubts that they all will.

Here's the list of sites that I've emailed about this:

Rebelscum
Galactic Hunter
TheForce.net
Yakface.com
FFURG
NiubNiub's Universe
thejawa.com

Any others you can suggest? I'm sure there are a ton more than this out there... I just don't know too many.

Try sandtroopers.com. I'm pretty sure they'll put this on their site.

I really like that Santa Chewie and Ewok elf, but it might be a bit early for a Christmas item.  I would probably vote for the Mon Calamari Dancer, although I can see you not wanting to give that one up  ;)
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

I like Jeff's idea of the holiday figures or Kermit:



I'd definitely bid a few bucks on that.   8)

I'll try and get in on this action too.  That ARC looks like he's been to hell and back.   8)

If some more auctions are up, I'll ask the Belgian Star Wars fanclub to also put up a news message + link

That particular kermit was taken apart for a refrebishment. The black hole clone trooper with jedi pack was a commissioned piece so I don't have it anymore. It would be easy enough to make a new one if I can find a clone trooper jet pack. Anyone care to donate one? I'd want to have it packaged.

The mon calamari dancer would be really hard to part with. It's not the easist figure to make. I'd be really bumed if it went for very little. The golden arc commander packaged in ROTS Target clone packaging is definately a possibility. I'd just have to change the artwork a little.

Another possibility would be to finish the walmart clone by giving him the blue vest. I could card him in the target clone packaging

First of all, what you guys are doing is great.  It's times like this that the SW community really shows its heart to people who think we're all just obsessive nerds.   :)

As for the site issues, I'd actually suggest contacting non-collecting SW sites as well.  I'd be willing to bet that some of the non-TFN affiliated sites such as Jedinet or T'Bone Fender's starwarz.com would be willing to post a link, and our very own Valin Kenobi could and would probably post a link on the CloneWarz.com site.

I started a thread over at the RS customizing forum about these auctions. Hopefully it won't get taken down. I asked the moderators to pin it to the top.
