Is a goatee required to live in MN?



It's part of our winter coat.

Then what happened to Jeff?  He shaved part of his winter coat off it appears...  Or it's going into Spring and he's shedding.

If I ever get to the point where I have that much stuff in a storage garage... I think I'd just have to call it quits.   :-X

I've been trying.  :-\  That unit was only half full in 05 and I ran into some obvious space issues a few months back.  I just couldn't bring myself to start opening/selling stuff so my "temporary" solution was to go to a larger storage unit until I get a better focus on my collecting habits.  I do collect other toy lines so it's not all Star Wars, but the majority of it is.

It looks bad when you see the whole thing, and I'll admit that I even get disgusted with the amount of crap boxes I have.  Please note that no live fish were harmed in this process.

Sorry for derailing this thread - but I didn't post the picture.   ;)

Heh, you sound exactly like me. While I LOVE having a large collection, it does often suck that most of it remains in storage. I've got to make a point of it this summer to decide what the hell I'm going to do with it. Sell of what I will, display what I can, and store only what I have to. Wait look, I just decided.....lol!
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

I'm in a similar boat as I'm setting up my office/collection room.  I have a bunch of rubbermaid bins in a spare bedroom that are in the process of being opened for display.  Much of it will probably be sold off though.

As far as displaying this new Falcon, I have a table in the middle of my collection room (actually two TV stands I bolted together) and it will be the centerpiece!  I think the best parts are the inside playset sort of features.  My plan is to set up the cockpit as a scene in ESB when they are trying to escape from the Empire, and in the center, I plan on setting up the ANH scene where Chewie's playing chess with the droids and Han is talking to Ben and Luke as he practices with his lightsaber.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

I can't really tell...is the cockpit an open room in which Han and Chewie can sit while other figures stand around behind them, like in the movies? Or is it pretty much just seating for two and nothing else?

Nope there's seating for four (like in the movies).

Hopefully the rumored ANH Obi-Wan Kenobi will be able to fit in the Falcon's cockpit.  The VOTC version probably won't fit.

He should if you remove the robe. He didn't wear it riding in the cockpit anyway.  :P

Yes, but the knees on that figure aren't articulated.  It looks like the fit for the rear jumpseats might be a little snug.

I'm glad the falcon is coming out. I'm depending on it actually, as I decided to sell my OTC version a little ahead of its' ineveitable price drop. But if the TIE, X Wing, and Falcon are signs of eventual "supersizing" of a bunch of ships, we are all headed for storage lockers. Maybe to live in, so we can afford both the products and the storage.
Actually, the Falcon was a straw on my collection camels back. I recently sold every prequel toy except 3 ships and a contingent of clones. It cleared out some space, brought in some cash, and now there is less I intend to buy of the new product coming out, as I can claim something of an "OT" focus. I will however, collect the prequel kubricks. I just couldn't give up the kubricks...

Back to topic- Falcon looks incredible. I have a large white laminate cabinet (home depot) that has a large top shelf 48" by 20" with a Hoth display, and the Falcon will have a home below it in the "ice cavern" as it is trying to take off with snowtroopers swarming in.

Geez, I totally forgot about that with Ol' Ben.
