    From what little I care to know about the game, mobility seems to be a necessity. Isn't a sarlaac immobile?

    I will say as Boba is awesome at least until unleashed comes out he is only part of the strength in that squad. Dengar and 4LOM both hold their own quite well!

    Chris, I signed up on shoebox.. problem is I can't figure out how to see what anyone else has for trade.. other than Lauren anyway and that is because she sent me a link to her trade list. I see tons of info for squads and comparisons of squads which is great and I am enjoying that part, but nothing about how to trade.

    Haha, I haven't been run off, I just suck at the internet. Trust me. I have a LiveJournal that's more a catalogue of dumb things I find on CNN.com and random song lyrics than an actual blog.

    Also, I never seem to get Private Messages! I never see the orange thing 'cause where I used to post there was a pop-up box that told you if there was a new one. Otherwise I would've come to watch AvP. :(

    But I do have exciting news. Zachary and I are going to be moving in mid-October, and it's almost definite that we're moving to a much larger house. So, not only will it be big enough for people to actually come over, but it won't be so flippin' hot then and we can actually have people over for minis instead of requesting that other people host. So I'm excited about that.

    Anyways, it's better for me if we pick a day or time for minis a few days ahead so I can make sure there's no other plans and stuff. I can also contemplate my squad longer that way, too. :)

    I think you have to get links specifically from other people about trading, I don't think you can just browse the Shoebox. But if everyone on here joined the Shoebox and made a trade list, we can trade amongst each other. I think there is also a trading community on the WotC boards.

    Also, Zachary's brother designed a minis map that had a sarlacc pit on it. I'll have to see if we can find it.

    Just an FYI for all of you... both of the Borders in Tucson have SW Minis, but the one on Oracle won't have it for long, I'm buying them out!

    (and praying for a Boba...)

    BTW, all of these minis are up for trade. I'd be willing to part with any of them, Laurenn, I know you wanted a Skiff, and I'll trade it to you, especially if you have a Grand Admiral Thrawn. But I also thought of the coolest freaking combo ever:

    Skiff carrying Emperor Palpatine and Royal Guard.

    Beat THAT!

    Chris, the Vigos are for trade. And, umm... the Boba if you want another one.
    Cat, the Luke(s) are up for trade as well ::cough::EXAR KUN!::cough::

    Prepare for my next squads:

    Boba and the Ewoks (no more worrying about Flamethrower!!!)
    Palpatine's Ride (Fast speed, go around and Force Lightning everyone, with protection from Guard)

    And, just cuz I feel like it,
    Exar Kun's Zoo of Horror (Kun, Reek, Krayt, and Dactillion)

    There was a game going when I left Cat's house. The participants were Mike, Cat, Brandon and Lauren. I took some pictures with Cat's camera, so whoever needs the pictures can get them from her.

    I hear that you, Laurenn, got a Thrawn. I know you don't usually trade your figs that you only have one of, but consider my offer:

    Nikto Gunner on Desert Skiff
    Boba Fett, Bounty Hunter
    Luke Skywalker of Dagobah
    Princess Leia
    Grand Moff Tarkin
    AT-ST
    Reek
    Utupaun on Dactillion
    X-1 Viper Droid
    that wierd Madnolorian tank thingie
    Young Krayt Dragon
    and many many more...

    You can choose any one or two of these for it... THINK ABOUT IT!!!

    Zachary's interested, but I'm more hesitant. We'd probably go for Desert Skiff and/or Boba Fett, Bounty Hunter (the one from BH, correct?), depending on how badly you want Thrawn. ;)
    On second thought, if this is going to make your Imperial squad even more devastating, I don't know if I want to trade him.[face_thinking]
    :p

    [hl=blue]This is how badly I want Thrawn. [link=http://www.swshoebox.com/displaySquad.cfm?getSquad=fixed&arg=74942]Here[/link] is my dream squad. It really doesn't have much to do with my favorite character, but hey, this squad is AWESOME!!! If you want the Skiff or Boba (yes from BH), I'll go for either, but I don't know if I want to give you both. But even if I did get him, this squad is a long ways away from being a reality. I'd still need 2 more Imp officers, another Swoop Bike, and two E-Webs.

    We have 4 swoop bikes and 3 ae imperial commanders... I'll talk to the boy and come back with an offer, perhaps. :)

    And hey, I haven't won against you, either! We should do a 2 player game if you promise not to pout. ;)
