    Woo! Finaly got my acount password email (about a week after trying to sign up)- but anyways...

    FRESNO SUCKS!

    and to answer those questions: I'll be seeing Ep3 at Signature, because I work there and hopefuly still will in a year... and the best collecting spots for me have been Target on shaw & west and the one on bullard & blackstone (I don't go to scalper shops, but I know there's one in Manchester Mall across from KB that usualy has SW stuff).

    The best collecting places are anywhere but Bases Loaded. FOr 10 dollars a figure, its not the best price. Those scalpers order their figures from EE.com, whichc Ive seen with my own eyes, at 6.50 per figure and charge 10 each. I think you should get your figures from EE.com.

    Ive seen them at WM and Target, buying up figures for that shack they call a store, just to charge honest collectors $10 for HTF figures.

    I have stories. Dont support the hunch! Suppost collectors. Have we seen any new figures recently?! Nope! All are at Bases Loaded.

    But, there is a website that helps out collectors here in Fresno. I dont know many that collect here. So far, Don and I collect. And some are ex-collectors. But Hey, welcome and have fun.

    They should offer a free bottle of K-Y jelly with their figures at collecting stores... for obvious reasons... ouch!

    Yeah there were a bunch of people who dressed up for Episode II at Edwards. I know some of them, they don't post here though, and we kinda lost touch after high school.

    oh yeah, and any previous pics would be great :)

    Yes, EL blades are fun. I will be at the premiere with Finney. I'll be dressed as a Jedi because I already have the costume.
