Understood, but in the same token, we don't like bad mouthing other sites here at JD, so let's try to follow the old addage: "If you don't have anything nice to say, please don't say anything at all..."

Thanks!   :-*

Awww nuts!  :P ;)

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Jedi Points? Your Prediction

Auctions? Ugh. This just sounds like a mess to deal with logistically and a good number of people won't be able to "spend" their points as they will be outbid. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy that (hopefully) some collectors will be able to fill in holes in their collections, but this just isn't a good way to do it, IMO.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!  :D

Wanna buy some comic books? ;)

LOL - only if they are the specific ones that I'm looking for (early Claremont issues of Uncanny X-Men and Amazing Spider-Man 121 & 122).  8)

Good to see you here Matt.You didnt bring any chinchillas with you did you? :o

I tried. The security guy caught me trying to smuggle them in here from GH and made me turn them loose before entering.  ;)

Welcome to JD Matt!  I know you're just here for the Hooters hot wings though - admit it!  Regardless, I'm glad someone besides Bob was finally brave enough to venture over here to say "hey"!  After all, several staff members here have spent more than their fair share of time on "your side of the fence"!   ;D  We are getting a little heavy in the Matt's now though...  I believe you make it at least 6 now, which would make you Matt #6 officially here (just in case you see "Matt #_" around the boards - you won't get confused  ;)).  But I suppose we could just call you GH Matt, eh?!  Yeah, that works...   8)

Be careful if you brought any of your chinchillas over here, 'cause we occasionally have some llamas that run loose around these boards, and I'd hate for one of your little fellas to get trampled!  :P

Yeah, I'm here for the Hooters wings. I figured if anyone could hook me up, it'd be you Matt #1.  Sheesh, this is already starting to sound like the Stonecutters on the Simpsons with the numbering system...

Llamas? They can crush all the chinchillas they want, but I might start having issues if they start going after my monkets!  ;)

It's great to have you and your impressive Darth Vader collection here!  So how long have you been a Vader focus collector?  Certainly a great choice in characters to concentrate on.  

Thanks for all the complements on the collection. I've been focusing on Vader for about 2 1/2 years now. It's a really nice focus to have, as it allows me to collect a bit in so many different areas (modern, vintage, prototypes, micro, coins, etc.) while keeping a cohesive feel to the collection.

What's up guys?

I recognize most of the names around from Rebelscum, CSW or GH, but may as well say howdy and introduce myself to those that don't know me.

I'm 26 and a grad student at the University of Colorado-Boulder. I've been on the forums staff at CSW and then RS when the sites merged. I'm currently helping out Mike at GH. I dabble in both Vintage and modern SW collecting, with a focus on Darth Vader items. I also collect autographs and, to a lesser degree, comic books.

If anyone's interested, my website is here.

Well, I'm impressed.  At least it was this :-\ instead of this :'(

MS and PhD rolled together or separate?

MS and PhD in a single program, but separate graduation dates.

It's only this  :-\ so far - I haven't gotten into my thesis work just yet. I'm sure it will be  :'( before too long...
