    Super Battle Droid is Week 6 - You should still be able to find it. I'll watch for Boga & R2.

    I should have some pictures of my collection up in a couple of days. It's been a crazy week. On a good note I did go to Disneyland yesterday.

    Not really anything you can't find here. I bought a Star Wars pin And found 3 more Lego figure key chains.Those you can't get anywhere else. They did have the lifesize Yoda from EII but I had to controll myself. I had to make sure I have the money for my Vader statue this week

    The lifesize Yoda couldn't be cheap.

    One of my friends in MN just sent me the LEGO Obi-Wan keychain from the LEGO store in the Mall of America - too awesome! What other characters did they have?

    You would like the statue on StarWarsShop.com. It's Barriss Offee and Luminara

    Yesyes, I've looked at that. Very tempting, but my wallet has been far too loose lately.

    I just won this on eBay.

    Yes, I think the design on it is great. I got the Episode 4 Obi-Wan plate as a gift a few years ago, which is also great. As soon as I saw this new one I knew it had to sit next to the one I have.

    Are there any stores that sell collectibles around you?

    Not really. There is one comic store, but all the collectible stuff they sell is a bit over-priced.

    I see you like Obi-Wan. Thats my dogs name but it's just Obi, he's a all white wolf. He's just a big old baby too.

    Yes, Obi-Wan is my favorite character - something I can't even attempt to deny. ;)

    Aww, now that's sad. :(

    I have three hamsters at the moment, none of which are named after Star Wars characters. But they're all really cute. :)

    Oh yes, I'm always in costume.

    This year I'm planning on wearing a generic pirate costumes (ARR!!), a Harry Potter/Hogwarts costume (since the new book is being released at midnight Friday night of the con), and one other, which will either be a top secret costume or a Jedi. On Preview Night and Sunday I'll be wearing my new, handmade R2-D2 hat. :)

    Yup! I started sewing several years ago just so I could make costumes. Now I'm a sewing maniac and enjoy sewing both crafts and clothes. :)
