    I need to sell more to finance either a home expansion or new storage building so I can buy more!

    Oh, what a vicious cycle...

    I want a Garbage/Matrix/Transformers/Star Wars shrine. Even my aunt has a Disney soft toy room, for Gob's sake!

    Hey, we could still put those up on our SMT store, Lin. They don't say jack about SW. We could do "I make fangirl look good" and "I make fanboy look good"

    Rhonda- How about "Fanboys want me....Fangirls want to be me" for your T-shirt? And we know what that Vader means- "Don't F with me."

    Optimus Prime roughing up Star Wars figures, Ben? Could you at least put a Jango Fett in place of Vader? Come on, man- That's blasphemy! :p

    At least he didn't have a Leia figure- or we'd have to call the law on him for a domestic distubance!

    I'lll see what I can find, Tim.

    Close, Sal. It's the Japanese version, which has long smokestacks and no battle damage.

    Sorry, John- didn't realize that was you I was bidding against!

    Just kidding...

    Yeah, I went for a whole week on a couple items only to have someone snag it at the last minute! Don't worry, there will be more. I've learned that if I want something, see it, and can live with the cost- snag it. If I get outbid on ebay, keep looking and it'll show up again! I can't count the number of times I missed out and found another the next time I did a search.

    Well...ONE WHOLE DAY!!!!...after I receive my $30 working Anakin FX saber...my Vader has crapped out on me...it worked fine when everyone left...but I was perusing the Ebay auctions, and I noticed a Vader FX saber that was cheap for some reason. The seller said the saber wouldn't turn off and has no hum. Well...guess whats wrong with mine!!!! Just giving everyone a heads up...I'm going to try and see new batteries will make it work better..if not :( !!!


    Needing another FX...AGAIN!!! John

    Well, new batteries didn't help it any, but looking and troubleshooting my now broken Vader saber...I think I have diagnosed the problem...a loose or broken wire within the string of LED lights or a wire broken loose that was sautered within the hilt portion near the on/off switch. Anyways, I'm sure you are asking what does this have to do with my Vader or future Vader FX lightsaber, well good question. My hypothesis is that a good blow/hit at the correct angle or an improper clash against something will break loose an important wire within the LED lit saber. (Future sabers should be LEDs) So the solution should be.........NO BANGING SABERS!!! Especially if it is not your's.....you don't want to have to pay for a new one like I will have to do here soon if I want a new Vader saber. (By the way I'm not blaming anyone or pointing any fingers...just giving a warning for future episodes, I was the last to use it or hit against something!!!)

    Your fellow SMT and highly disheartened FX owner!!!!

    The funny thing about the MR FX sabers is this: If they didn't want us to hit it against anything, then why include the clash sounds?

    Crikey Dude, That's bad craftsmanship on MR's part. I agree with tim on the fact that they shouldn't give crash sounds for impacts, or even the fact that the tube is made from..."unbreakable" high impact acrylic. Anyways, sorry for the badluck dude.

    What kind did 'Mara' have at MSC? She was banging the crap outta it! I even saw the blade bend!!!

    How're the other sabers doing, John? Have you gotten your new stand in yet?
