This will be the second Celebration appearance, and only the third Star Wars convention appearance for the writer/director, who last attended Celebration III in Indianapolis, Indiana, in 2005.

Lucas will appear onstage at a date and time yet to be scheduled during the four-day run of the show, which takes place August 12-15, 2010 at the Orange County Convention Center.

Next Batman Movie Coming July 20, 2012!

Warner Bros. Pictures has set a July 20, 2012 release date for Christopher Nolan's third Batman movie in conventional and IMAX theaters! That is a little over two weeks after Sony Pictures is releasing their Spider-Man reboot on July 3, 2012.

I have an extra ACME Character Key Obi-Wan Kenobi CW Printers Proof for sale as I already have another PP.

The key is in awesome shape & has never been removed from the plastic sleeve, limited to 750. This one is not marked like other printer proofs, it is blank. When I picked it up awhile back, the person mentioned it was 17PP tho no markings of this number is on the key that I can see.

I am asking $100.00 US (which is par right now) plus shipping. I take Paypal & the gift option is the best.  ;)

Please note that I am from Canada & shipping will be what Canada Post asks.

If you have any questions, please drop me a PM.  :)

Other Collectibles / Fine Molds 1/144 Scale Model Kits

Since we have a thread on Fine Molds 1/72 Scale Model Kits, Fine Molds is coming out with a 1/144 scale Millennium Falcon which I thought deserved it's own thread.

Bigbadtoystore has this 1/144 Millennium Falcon model kit up for preorder for $74.99 with a release date in late April.

More pictures can be seen over at HLJ where it was shown at the Winter Wonder Festival 2010 in Japan.

Small-Scale Falcon from Fine Molds

According to the HLJ link, this Falcon might be a little over 7 3/4 inches long.

Not a bad price considering the 1/72 scale Millennium Falcon that came out a few years ago commands a hefty price of $375. plus.

Watto's Junk Yard / The Great 2010 Collector's Challenge
« on: January 5, 2010, 12:32 AM »
2009 is done & gone so onto the 2010 Great Collector's Challenge.

Reference from the past Great Collector's Challenge:

The Great 2009 Collector's Challenge
The Great 2008 Collector's Challenge
The Great 2007 Collector's Challenge
The Great 2006 Collector's Challenge
The Great 2005 Collector's Challenge
The Great 2004 Collector's Challenge

I'll keep the 2009 Great Collector's Challenge pinned for awhile for those who have not posted their damage year end tally yet.

This year starts off with a bang for me, I have already past the $500. US mark & only 4 days in. What's in it for me this year, anything vintage that is eye candy, maybe the odd animated character maqettes (1 on preorder) & animated character keys if any are done this year. SW Kubricks, well you know I can't past them up so that is going to put a hole in the wallet bank account.  :P

I have also been working on my Space 1999 focus so I can see that putting more some more damage "2nd mortage".   ;D

I will have to see what happens before/during C5 & what I can find/get. I can see some $$$$ spent in Orlando.  >:D

Watto's Junk Yard / Happy Birthday Rob!

Big JD Birthday wishes goin' out to Rob today!  
(please scroll to the very end of this ever growing thread to join in on the most current JD Birthday bash!)

New Year, new Birthday thread!!!   8)  Here's the old one, in case you were still interested...   :P

To start off the New Year, Big Birthday Wishes go out to our one and only OCB.

Now that this young old lad has turned 35 today, join me in wishing Scott, the official pursuer of the Ice Cream Maker Guy Action Figure & yes it's going to fricken' happen, a great big Happy Birthday!

Have a great Birthday Scott.  Hope you get lots of cool goodies!  :-*

Also sharing a Birthday today is Smartypants1635. Hope you also have a great day!  :)


I'll leave the last Birthday thread open for abit for those who missed out on the Birthday wishes from the end of the year.  ;)

What are your Hotel plans to stay in Orlando? Any good restaruant ideas & what attractions will you see if you stay longer or during the event?

I'm staying at the Rosen Centre just across the street from the Convention Centre. I booked a few days after C5 to take in some sites.

SeaWorld looks nice but not sure if I can fit it in.

Universal Studios looks intersting, I took in Universal when I was in LA back in 1986 & would like to take it in if I can.

Disney World is another place I would love to see, can I do that in a day... lol!

Kennedy Space Centre, oh man I'm in heaven. Being a space buff, this is one tour I can't miss. Tours can be had for $85. up & are aprox 11.5 hrs long. No launches are on tap for this time period tho... bummer. Still, this is where space history is... spam in a can.  :D

Restaraunts, some choices to get some grub close by. Elegant Pizzeria & Deli, IHOP, Denny's, Red Lobster, Taco Bell, McDonalds & whatever else is handy. Nothing really different than up here in Canada tho.

Anyone with some advice for other places to chow down or see the sites (reviews), holler.  :)
