How about you guys, any plans to change anything right away?

The only thing I plan on doing when we move in is to POSSIBLY finish the basement.  Nothing really needs to be done as far as repairs, but there is one room we MIGHT change the color of the walls.  Otherwise, the house is in as close as perfect condition as you can get.

Fish, that is one beautiful home you have there!  I love the pool with the table... how cool is that!?  Are you guys all moved into it yet, and if not what's the date of your closing?  Only 19 more days for us to move into our new crib, and I just cannot wait any longer!

My wife had already looked at this house and had totally fallen in love with it.  She called me while I was on the train ride home, and said, "You have to come see this house tonight!  It is by far the best house we have seen yet!"  I was in no mood to look at houses that night, because I had a really crappy day at work and I had a massive headache.  But, I decieded I would look at this house for her.

Good thing I went to see it that night, because I fell in love with it just after walking through the front door.  I said within 10 seconds, "THIS is OUR house!  I want it!"  So, after looking for 3 months it all paid off in the end.

Fish... congratulations!!!

Did you ever find a Red Clone Trooper to add to that Unleashed collection of yours?  I know I haven't found one yet.

Our townhouse sold yesterday for $1,000 less than what we really wanted to get for it, and it sold to a non-contingent buyer!  That means she can move in at any time, and she isn't in the process of selling any property that could have belonged to her.  Also, she's already given us a nice FAT check for earnest money, so everything is all complete.  We'll be moving into our new home in late June.


Sent you a PM and email for a bunch of figures.   8)

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Silver Sandtrooper

This is the first time the Silver Sandtrooper has been brought up here?   ???

The only silver figures I really liked are the Darth Vader & R2-D2.  This spray painting effect is starting to get really lame.  The silver Fett wasn't too bad, but I have yet to even make an attempt at getting the silver Clone Trooper, and I'm not going to try that hard for this silver Sandtrooper either.

I think it's time for Hasbro to come up with another exclusive figure... something that's not silver.

Talk about a great score there David!  Can't believe you found all those figures for $1 and $5 each.  My K-Mart never has squat so I don't ever go there anymore.  Might have to make a run out there one of these nights.  Thanks for the heads up.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Re: 12" 2-1B and Lobot

I still have been unable to find that 12" Biker Scout.  Oh well I guess.   >:(

I'm not all that impressed with this.  I was expecting more detail, and it would have been better if it came with either an orange pauldron or interchangeable pauldrons.   :-\

Always interesting to see someone start a new display of their collection.  It's coming along very nicely, so be sure to keep posting updated pictures of your displayed collection.   :)

Hey Kevin, I hope you have a terrific birthday, and hopefully you'll get a ton of Star Wars items to add to your collection.  And welcome to the wonderful world of adulthood.   8)

WHere at in the Chicago area do you live?  My buddy lived in Lisle and the Roselle for like 5 years when he went to Optomotry school so I got to see that part of town fairly often.

We're going to be living in the same town that we currently live, and that is Aurora.  Lisle is about 20 minutes east of us, and Roselle is about 45 minutes north of us.  My wife works in Roselle, and it is a very nice town.
