    I mentioned this in another thread but thought we should dedicate a thread to this.

    Star Wars Interests :

    Collecting
    -Action Figures - Started back up again with ROTS. Every figure up to #44 (including the first 4 preview). Waiting patiently for #45+. I check the two Targets, 3 KB Toys, 2 Walmarts and 1 TRU on a weekly basis. Things have calmed down since the movie came out. Not much into the vehicles. I don't have any of my original 1977 figures. I gave those to my "little" brother....they have been lost. I have some of the POTF line introduced in 1999 and a few of the TPM figures. I have the first wave of Unleashed figures

    -Replicas/Props/Busts - Just started collecting some of the FX sabers this year. (Vader IV and Anakin III thus far). I've ordered the Sandtrooper busts, Darth Vader bust, Clone Trooper full figure-GIANT , Darth Vader full figure- GIANT. Haven't yet forked over cash for those die-cast ship replicas.

    -Trading Cards-I still have my original 1977 set of cards. My Empire Strikes back set is not complete. I do have the complete base set of Attack of the Clones, Clone Wars (cartoon), Revenge of the Sith, Heritage line. I have most of the Chase cards for ROTS. Only two hobby Sketch cards. The ROTS set will take a while to complete. Looking forward to meeting anyone who wants to trade.

    -Movies-I think this is a given for everyone here. I have every major movie release on DVD or VHS (I think I have 3 versions of a New Hope on VHS). I have most of the Original Triogy Mememorized. (who doesn't right). I can't wait for Episode III to be released so I can see the whole thing in numerical order.

    -Books- All the major novels. My expanded universers collection is not complete. I have read Shawdows of th eEmpire, Tales of the Bounty Hunters. Tales from the Mos Esiley Cantina, Tales from Jabba's Palace, The Timothy Zahn trilogy, Vector Prime, Spliner of the Mind's Eye, Labrinth of Evil (between Episode II & III). No comic books as of yet. I have all of the "Art of Star Wars" book series, as well as the visual dictionaries, cross section guides, essential vehicle guide etc.

    -Video Games (Battlefront, KOTOR etc.) - I'm mostly a XBOX Live kind of guy. I think I have every SW games on the XBOX platform. Not to many are XOX live aware. I can't wait for Battlefront II later this year. My Gamer Tag is Raptor Alpha.


    Other Interest besides Star Wars

    -Sci-Fi/Sci-Fantasy in general (The new Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek etc.) - I like the genre. I'll watch most of the stuff out there but I don't read any other Sci-Fi books.

    -Movies - I like watching DVDs at home (50" DLP screen with surround sound). Besides Sci-Fi I like almost anything. See here for my list of DVDs that I own.

    -Video Games - I have an XBOX, PS(1), Gamecube, Nintendo 64, Sega Genesis. It has been years since playing the Genesis or 64. I'm into racing simluations or FPS.

    -Books - Other than Harry Potter I don't think there is another franchise that I'm into. I've read many of Michale Crichton's books. I have really enjoyed Dan Brown (Davinci Code, Angels & Demosn etc.) and read most of his work.

    -Music - I'm into the 80s' music the curse of my youth. Most current music. Not a big country fan (Shania Twain is the farthest I would go) or heavy metal. I play the piano and trumpet. There is more music that I like than note.

    -Sports - No interest at all. I'm the atypical guy in this regard. My wife likes to watch the NASCAR races and WPA shows but that's as close as I'll get.

    -Travel/Sight seeing - I love to travel abroad. My last trip was an 18 day cruise to the Mediterrean. I loved it. I hope to see more of Italy this year.

    -Computers - Well my day job involves these so I guess it is a good thing that I like using them. I have 6 systems at home. Most are Windows based but two (laptop & desktop) are running Mac OS (Tiger) and Linux can be fou
