    Hobbies/Interests: Custom Figures, Prop and costume Replicas, Drawing, Airbrushing, Sculpting, and various other art related stuff :)

    Costume: Gonna have trooper Armor soon, but still want to do something else.

    Favorite SW Movie: Empire Strikes Back

    Favorite SW Book: Heir to the Empire Trilogy - Great storyline that didn't need to kill a classic main character to get people to read it...

    SW Characters / Celebrities you have actually interated with: Characters - David Prowse, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Jeremy Bulloch, Antony Daniels, Warwick Davis, John Hollis (Lobot), Bill Hootkins (Porkins), John Morton (Dak), Femi Taylor (Oola), Mercedes Nogh (Rystall), Shannon Baska (Mara Jade), Caroline Blakiston (Mon Mothma), Maria de Aragon (Greedo), Phil Brown (Uncle Owen), Julian Glover (general Veers) and I'm sure some others I've forgotten about...

    Celebrities: Don Bies (R2 Handler), Steve Sansweet (LFL marketing), Timothy Zahn (Writer), Doug Chang (art Director E1 and E2), Mark Bodreaux (First Kenner Toy designer), various ILMers, and some people I shouldn't have forgotten...

    Freakiest Star Wars Moment: I'd actually have to give this a tie. The first took place about three or four years ago. Anthony Daniels was hosting a Plano show. Well, at the same show - there was this threepio costume. Knowing the owner I asked if I could go upfront and take a closer look and he said yes. So now I'm playing around with this suit see, and I get a little curious to see just HOW it fits :) Being the genius that I am I put it on. No sooner then 5 seconds after I put some of the parts on, guess who comes around the corner and is staring me right in the eyes - Anthony Daniels... I kid you not. here is the conversation verbatum:

    Me: hi....
    Anthony: Where did you get that...
    Me: Uh.. I think it was used at Disneyworld...
    Anthony: Oh, well, its very innacurate...
    he turns around and walks off...
    Me: ....?

    Think I'm lying?

    2nd Freakiest Moment...

    Again at a Plano show. Bree and I rush down to PLano and can only be at the show for a few minutes. Well, Julian Glover (General Veers)is there and I took a custom Walter Donovan card from Indiana Jones down for him to sign. Well, while waiting in line - he says the following line for another fan: "The shield Generator is down Lord Vader - you may start your landing" and I swear he got it DEAD RIGHT. That just about damn near gave me goose bumps. Thats probably the first time I've actually heard one of the actors say their line from the movie :) At that point I knew I was a true SW geek :)

    SW Character you most want to meet: Gotta agree with the wife :)- Frank Oz

    What drew you to the Fan Force: The chance to finally get together with people with the same interests... picking on Otto :)

    No, Sentinel Vash, I do not work at west, but i did breifly for a 3 week peroid, until school got in the way. My best friend works there though, he used to work in AOL, but now for Direct TV. His name it Tim. (Looks like the grown-up version of Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes)

    I don't know how often I will check the boards. I don't have the swiftest or most reliable connection at home . I usually get on at TCC.

    Welcome, banditajs!

    Amanda and her husband, Rusty are from my home town of Claremore. As children, her husband and my wife used to live in the same neighborhood and played together all the time. I had both of Amanda's parents as teachers at one time or another at the high school. We used to have so much fun in their classes. Bottom line, they're great people.

    "Favorite SW Book: the whole NJO series" Nice to see that there's someone else who enjoys the NJO as much as I do!
