    I have pics of some of my collection at the URL in my sig. If other people (such as Jeff) have pics of the collection online anywhere, I'd love to see!

    This is JediPastor checking in.

    I've been busy with my video for the Lightsaber Choreography Competition 4 (LCC4) on the fan film forum. Mine is entry 8 and I got second place.

    In fact I'm looking to make an entry for the, yet-undetermined, LCC5. I'm looking for anyone in the B-town area who can weald a lightsaber with some expertise.

    Hi. Remember me? It's been a while.
    It has been a busy Star Wars year for me. ROTS was awesome. Plus Clone Wars was cool. I have all the DVDs. Most of my money has gone to buying all the ROTS books as well as all the other SW books that came out this year. Now I have to find time to read them all! I have went to the San Diego Comic-Con for the last 2 years. I got to meet Ben Burtt, Ryan Church & Chris Edwards at the panel for CHASSIS. It should be really neat. I went to the John Williams concert at the Hollywood Bowl. And to cap off 2005, my question got published in SW Insider #85 by Steve Sansweet! Check it out. I have 3 of the 5 Silver Edition Figures. That was the coolest thing to ever happen to me. I have sent in questions before, but they never made it to print in the magazine.

    I wish everyone a Merry CHRISTmas and a very happy new year.

    Sorry I dissapeared for a while. I sorta gave up on this because nobody would ever respond to me besides Jedi Riibu. Not much has changed for me, I have been working almost 7 days a week since August. Good news is the extra money has been able to get my Star Wars collection much larger, I am now collecting all of the Sideshow statues, and I'm caught up on all Code 3 ships and Gentle Giant statues, I even got a Yoda bowling ball. Well if someone wants to get something going then lets do it! But I won't go on to this site just to write to myself.

    I'm curious when there's going to be another lightsaber training day at your house. I missed the last one because I was busy and didn't know it was going on.

    I'm thinking about adding "lightsaber training" to my workout. I noticed that it was a great exercise when I was practicing for the competition. It would be cool to work on it on a semi-consistent basis.

    BTW did you pick up more of the BK toys? I didn't quite get them all the second round. I did get all of the watches, I believe.

    Nice to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Our fighting group from Tulare FF "IWS Productions" is caught up in some live steel fighting at the moment three of us are doing a fight at the Visalia con. center for the "creative center" they're doing A Mardi gras dinner cance and we're also helping with the sets. Afterbthat we've got a few Renn faires and then a fight in the competition at World con. I would like to make it back down to b'field as soon as the weather warms up and jeff's schedual slows down. And I have yet to see the film of that choreo that place second but I would much like to.

    Just kicking it.

    I've been periodically coming by here to see if anyone was still around.

    You're the first to post anything in almost 2 months.

    I'm waiting to see if anyone wants to get together to do some lightsaber choreography.

    I look in from time to time also waiting to see if the interest might spike some. Tulare Fan Force is putting on something tonight at the condords game, I guess they will all be in costumes. I need a good mannequin for a Darth Vader costume let me know if anyone has any resorces.

    Greeting's Bakersfield, from a former resident who is now in the mile high city. Boy I wish I knew of you guys when i lived there. Anyway, did you mention the Tulare Fan Force? I am on the Sac boards and i know there is a bunch of stuff going on with 501st, a couple of the Fan Forces and the Rebel Legion. You guys might want to check it out.

    Jedi Pastor, you do lightsaber duels and all? I wish I knew where some the web sites are located but I am in a group in Pueblo, CO and we are doing fight scenes for a bunch of fan films a friend of mine is putting together. We're called the Steel City Jedi. Look up Rav-Loc Vos on either the Rocky Mountain Fan Force or the Southern Colorado Fan Force.

    And, BTW, how are the Condors doing this year? I still have a Condors T-shirt I wear around here once in while.

    I'm still hanging around!
    I read SW books mostly and some comics. I only collect a few things any more.
    I got the 501st Stormtrooper from Comic-Con.
    I guess I will get the new DVDs - the original versions - seems to me they're just trying to make more money from us fans. They are just taking the old LaserDisc versions and puting then on DVD. No restoration, clean-up, THX sound, or any other extras such as BTS documentaries or the TV making of shows.
    LATER Lucasfilm will probably release them again correcty the way fans want them!
