    ...BECAUSE I GOT TEH GUNSHIP TODAY!!!!!!!!!!111!!!!1! w000000000000000000000000000t!!!!!!111111111!!!!!!

    Yes, hell has frozen over, pigs fly, and Sithy has TEH GUNSHIP!!!!

    So the UPS truck goes by my house around 11 oclock this morning, like it usually does, but DOESN'T STOP!!!!! I literally was screaming (which terribly embarrassed mom :D ) and telling it to stop!!!! I was so mad!
    So I sulk for the rest of the day.
    Then, at 3:24 P.M. September 4th, 2002 something happened.

    I hear the sound of a truck coming down the street. My brother goes "Ooooooh Kev, listen!" By this time I'm so grumpy I just go "Pete, that's the school bus." Then, it rounds the bend, in all it's glorious, gleaming brown color!!! IT WAS THE UPS TRUCK!!!

    I played air guitar and danced around my room (literally) for about 10 seconds before screaming downstairs to the front door. THERE IT WAS!!!!!!!! :D

    Unfortunately, I had to go ALL the way up to the local college where I'm taking classes before I could open it because I had to pick something up there. The whole way there and back I'm practically BURSTING with anticipation.

    Then I arrived home. :D :D

    I raced up to my room with the box, gently nestled it onto my bed, slapped in the AOTC in my CD player, turned up the volume... then I turned my attention to the box that awaited me. :D

    I ripped open the outer boxes to the Star Wars Main Theme, battled with uncooperative twist-ties to the AOTC "Mystery Theme", and put stickers on to the tune of the Imperial March (in the end of AOTC).

    Finally it was done: 3 clonetroopers and Yoda stood on it's main deck and I flew it around my room making "brrrrRRRRrrr" noises, even playing the music in my head. :D

    Alas, it has been a day long remembered, but it is time for me to retire.

    I shall have more to tell tomorrow, I'm sure. :D

    THANKS GUYS!!!! :D

    Yes, a poem, pics, and pointless posts are DEFINITELY ON THE WAY!!! :D My dad's bringing the digital camera home from work tomorrow (or on Friday) so I'll take pics of my whole collection for Postman's "Collection Pics" thread! :D

    First off, this bad boy is HUUUUUUGE! Not just big, HUGE. Do you have the Millenium Falcon figure? This one is at LEAST 1 and and a half times bigger. Yes. It's HUGE.

    It's got SO many things to shoot, levers to move (those slotted doors on the sides open and close :D), and LOTS of detail!!

    w00000t!

    I Lurked through the WHOLE Gunship Thread (All Hail The Mighty Republic Gunship!) & have loved it since I first saw it. Congratulations Sithman! We all know how you felt when waiting for That Very Special SW Package in the mail. And isn't Rearranging your SW shelves half the Fun of Collecting?Until that Shuttle comes anyway!
    Gotta Love Toys!! Enjoy the Gunship!(hopefully TRU will get it soon!I need it Bad too!!)

    Stove, actually Neck said I could have my own thread. :D

    "And isn't Rearranging your SW shelves half the Fun of Collecting?"

    Dude, I totally agree. I love dusting my bedroom because I usually spread out the ordeal over a good hour's time. I blast Star Wars music, play around when I take my ships off the shelves (to dust the the shelves) and it's really fun (though my family thinks it's funny that I enjoy dusting so much. :p



    Oh, and at least 3 times when I was going to bed last night I looked up, and just to see that magnificant sillouette of TEH GUNSHIP just sorta gave me chills. :D I love this ship. :D

    So I got home from class today...

    Walked into my room and said "WHOA! Pete [my brother] there's a gunship in my room!". I say that everytime I walk into my room now, and he's getting quite annoyed. :p

    So after walking in, I stare at teh gunship for a while, make little blaster noises, then I start to get inspired. I pick up teh gunship, fly it around the house. The whole time making it's engine sounds everytime it makes a banked turn. :D

    Ah yes, I think a gunship should be in EVERYONE's house. :D

    A guy brought a gunship to our FF meeting last night....I don't collect toys, but I may have to pick one of those bad boys up, espeically since they're only $40. Holding that thing reminded me of my day's in the snow with my AT-AT...very nice. Kept thinking I was breaking it with all the guns unintentionally popping off, but wow that's some hunk of plastic. Congrats on your purchase! :)
