    Greetings to my fellow STAR WARS Fans in France.

    My name is Dave, and Im now living in Pittsburgh, USA.

    I apologize for not being able to write in French.
    My study in school taught me spanish and latin only.
    ;-) However, I hope some of you will still be able to
    read my post. Perhaps a kind frenchman would even
    translate my post in a follow-up reply for all to read.

    I just heard about your fabulous STAR WARS REUNION
    convention. I just returned from our own CELEBRATION
    III party one week ago, and Im happy and excited about
    the new (and last) STAR WARS movie about to be released.

    I am a member of the PENNSYLVANIA STAR WARS COLLECTORS
    SOCIETY (www.pswcs.com), and am interested in
    organizing a trade with someone in Paris who will be
    attending the REUNION convention.

    I like to collect the international exclusive toys,
    and I see the special chance here to do some trading
    in the spirit of good will and cross-cultural
    generosity. :)

    I am hoping to find someone there, in Paris, who can
    get me one T-shirt, and one of the exclusive ANAKIN
    action figures from the REUNION show. And in return,
    I have plenty of extras of the US Celebration-3
    exclusive DARTH VADER action figures, and posters/hats/
    and many other CIII exclusives to offer.

    If anyone who reads this post speaks english, and
    is planning on going to the REUNION show, Id like
    to hear from you at either of the following two
    email addresses:

    davidjaybrown@engineer.com
    blue_harvester@programmer.net

    I am not a scalper, and I do not plan on re-selling
    the REUNION toy. I am a dedicated collector, and I
    would display it proudly in my own home. Id also
    like to have the chance to help out one or more
    fellow french collectors with some of the stuff which
    may be equally hard for my EU brothers to acquire. :)

    I will be *very* generous in my trading, and I am
    really only looking for ONE T-shirt and ONE boxed
    exclusive action-figure, for my own personal
    collection. If we can work out the details, I will
    also take all the risk by shipping first.

    If anyone is interested, please email me, or reply
    to this post (in english, if you please).

    Thank you.

    May the Force be with you! ;-)

    Thank you both. I await your emails with eagerness.
    :)

    -Dave

    p.s. Have fun at the show. With Rick McCallum
    coming to Paris, I am sure that he will be bringing
    some of the same EpIII footage that he brought to
    the US CELEBRATION-III show -- which was FANTASTIC !!!

    You will be blown away by it ! :cool:

    p.s. I might add, that I also have extras of the
    several hasbro toy premier exclusives (holo Yoda,
    lava vader, and I can get an extra Earlybird set)
    if such things interest either of you. I dont know
    if these were made available in the EU.

    Thanks to Redlord,

    We have solidified a deal, and a huge box of
    american exclusive toys :) is now on its way
    over to France. Redlord will soon have a
    nice display for everyone to admire.
    I hope that the package arrives quickly, and without any
    complications.
    This deal is moving into the 2nd-phase... :)

    -Thanks to my friends on FFF.

    I want to tell here this guy, is totally fair and pleasant to talk by mail, and his offer were very serious (and interesting).

    So I hope this embassy of Pittsburgh will serve later.

    Go Steelers Go :D

    I am happy to report that this deal has
    concluded, and it has been GREAT SUCCESS ! :cool:

    Redlord received his package from me, and he placed
    the REUNION items back in the same box, and mailed
    it back to me.

    I just received them yesterday. (June 7th)

    I would like to thank Erik (Redlord) for
    taking a chance on me, and for purchasing
    the shirt and toys for me up front. Not only
    did he make ME very happy, but after hearing
    that he wanted MANY of our new US exclusives,
    He offered several more REUNION ANAKINs for
    fellow members of my club (PSWCS - the
    Pennsylvania Star Wars Collectors Society).
    So, THREE more of my best friends will are
    also excited to be receiving one of the
    exclusive REUNION toys too.

    We all wish to thank Erik, and FFF, for
    taking a chance on us... for spending
    many extra Euros on only a promise, and for
    being an honourable representative to
    our collective hobby.

    I also hope that this success translates
    into future successes for both PSWCS
    and FFF for a long time in the future.

    Thanks Again, Erik, from all of us.

    -David Brown (& friends)

    I will be sure to have some pictures to link
    to after our next club meeting. I will
    report back then ;-)
