Vintage Kenner / My Han Solo run
« on: February 4, 2007, 08:03 AM »
Okay, because I don't want to have to go through and reload everything to village photos from RS, I'm just going to send you to the RS page where I've already got the stuff loaded up.  Enjoy, after about 3 years, this is what I've put together.

I've got a vintage Han on each cardback.  Example, Original Han on SW, Bespin Han on ESB, Endor Han ROTJ, Carbonite Han POTF, etc, etc...


Link to RS

They originate from the books after ROTJ that came out in the early/mid 90's...either Kevin Anderson or Timothy Zahn.

I have finally completed this thing.  It's been almost two years of off and on work and finally I've finished this thing.  Here's a teaser pic for you and follow the for the whole gallery of pics.  The pics range from picking parts, to some painting, and through some of the construction.  Although not all of the constructions is documented.  I know that some of the parts may be mounted a little crooked, I did that on purpose for the most part, but not all of them.  Remember, it's an ugly.

Follow this link for the full gallery.

We have a VCR/DVD combo in the living room.  We also have a PS2, Dish network, and a DVD player.  We haven't even plugged in the VCR since moving and probably won't.  When we need the DVD player, we have the PS2 and DVD.  If we want to record something, we have two TV's with DVR cabability.  So, like I said, we'll probably never plug in the VCR combo.

Rob, I have sold just about all of my modern stuff in the past couple of years. With the exception of one botched transaction for Ep I stuff, everything went pretty smooth.

I divided all my stuff into lines, POTF2, Ep I, POTJ, and Saga.  The Saga went first when I was selling followed by POTJ, POTF2, and Ep I, which I still have now.  I sold all of the stuff on eBay, knowing I wouldn't get all my money back, but happy to get something for it and get it out of my house.  If you want to sell fastest, put an entire line on ebay with a decent BIN and you may get some people to bite.

Otherwise, I suggest do as someone else (Bill maybe?) suggested and divide the stuff into lots of 10-20 or just donate some of them to a kids program for Christmas.  I'll be donating much of my Ep I to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots.

That sucks man.  Thank God for disability and a pretty good insurance plan from my job.  At least if I got hurt (depending on the injury) I could still work in some capacity.

Lately, I've taken a rather large hiatus from collecting and have r  arely been visiting the net for SW related stuff.  I've spent some good SW money on a couple of softball bats.

I've played a ton of ball, 2-3 nights a week from spring until fall, but until this year never got ate up like I am now about playing.  I can't wait for game night to get here.

Anybody else around here play ball?  Anyone very serious about it?

Fun job Matt.  Do you get to spend days on end with the SP's down in the silo's?  I never got the "joy" of missile field duty, but I did spend quiet a bit of time watching fighters sit on the flightline and checking ID's at the front gate.

Anyway, I teach 8th grade US History.  This is my 6th year doing that and for the most part I love it even though I'm beat at the end of the day.

He was being a smartass and I was calling it how I saw it.

Sorry 'bout that cockbite. Just for you, I'll type a bit better. 


Didn't you get a suspension recently for acting like that?

It's kids that act like you that make life so difficult for so many people.  Just accept the statement for what it was worth, close your mouth and go about your business.  Take a little criticism, grow some thicker skin, and get over it.

And that same stuff gets drilled to the students as well... ::)

Yup, but you try to be creative in your approach to teaching so it is interesting to the kiddos.
