    So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we can decide is what to do with the time given us.

    [face_plain] :) ;) :D :p [face_laugh] :D :p [face_laugh] [face_laugh]




    :cool: Me & my friend found 2 of THE MIGHTY REPUBLIC GUNSHIP today at TRU!!!!!!!!! :D

    We were looking at the SW display on the shelf and they had no new figures and we didn't see any ships or beasts we didn't have. We're looking at dozens of X-Wings, Speeders, Slave1s and Starfighters and I say to my friend where the hell is this Gunship!! :mad: Just as I was finishing that sentence he picks up the Life size Battle Droid Blaster right under the figure pegs and what is sitting right behind it??!!! :eek: 2 Republic Gunships in Mint boxes!! It was perfect, we both bought one & while we were on line some guy asked us where we got it, and my friend told him we thought these were the last 2 :(
    Great timing for me & my buddy, We just made it! :) :D WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO
    Going to open it in a little while! Very Happy LittleGreenMaster!! :)

    :) :D WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I have only had The Beautiful Republic Gunship since 1:30 EST today & I didn't get home from the toy hunting until about 4:45. Of course I went right on line to declare my Happy find here on the boards :p After admiring the box for a while (and surfing here) I finally opened it! :) Putting it together was fun, thank the force there weren't 10000 stickers like the Falcon. I opened the Extra Yoda I found & extra Clone Commander for it and positioned them inside(REALLY NEED THAT PILOT NOW!!) & then it was time for the fishing line!
    Anyway my point is The Gunship is ALREADY hanging from my ceiling!! ;) :D It looks Awesome!!! :D :D
    It's hanging right next to & Over the Geonosis Battle scene I have set up! It Looks REALLY SWEET!!It's my Biggest scene with 4 beasts,Over 40 figures, & Now the Gunship! :) The Gunship just Totally made one of my Best scenes 100000000 times Better!! :D I got Lucky too because I already had a hook in the ceiling right there which the Action Fleet Falcon hung from! :) I'll hang that somewhere else. It was also one of the easier ships to hang Surprisingly and trust me I know. It's the Biggest ship I have ever hung. I only have about 20 ships hanging from the ceiling both Hasbro & LEGO. LEGO ships are much tougher to hang! LGM Very Happy!! Be even Happier when I find me that Clone Pilot & Deluxe Clone, May have to get a few of each, Hope someday I'll be able to post pics of my collection! :mad: ;) :)

    Hey Drac, I tend to calm down AFTER I vent my feelings! :p"Trust Your Feelings" He He He :D
    That's kind of the point on the boards sometimes, to express yourself. It's getting crowded in my room & I need another job, & I LOVE to collect, But it's hard is all I was saying. ;)
    I don't have a Bunch of SW collecting friends, just a few, So I vent here from time to time. :) Nothing wrong with a rant every now & again :D LGM
