    That is so true! I just got these in from Japan:

    They are actual aluminum Pepsi bottles. Three of the four are going up on eBay. Guess which one I'm keeping :).

    I want none of those things. You people need help serious help.

    I forgot to mention that I received my Leia figs yesterday and two more stickers for my new machine. I can't wait to put them on!

    I got the Hallmark SW ornaments the other day, thanks to a shin-kicking good friend.
    I want to wear my new SW Converse shoes to Vegas this weekend, but I don't wanna get them dirty.. what to do?

    Spray them with scotchguard. It'll protect them from most stains. I wouldn't want to wear them because you will likely step in something or scuff it or something. Then again, the rubber will just rot over time so you may as well enjoy them.

    Those shoes are cool, JR. I want all that except the trooper flip flops...but I know I can do without it too. The airsick bags are the coolest. The shoes would probably hurt too much to wear. The bottles are way cooler than our pop cans.

    You're such a liar SR. You know you want those converse.

    I agree with ES, Converse are the most uncomfortable shoes anyone can wear.

    You guys are just jealous that you don't have $150 Converse Star Wars shoes. Plus most women don't complain if shoes are uncomfortable, they just wear them because of the way they look, even though they are torturous.

    On TOPIC RELATED news, I went to the sad and dying outlets in Barstow on my way back from Vegas, and picked up a bunch of Episode III Party Goods: plates, napkins, tablecloth, inflateable lightsaber, and a soccer ball. I didn't even know they had such things. They even had a Vader pinata. I didn't buy it. I also saw a SW EpIII Folding Table with Folding Chairs at this toy place! There are so many SW stuff out there that I didn't know existed.

    I love Converse tennies, and find them very comfy, as long as no LONG walks are involved. I have four pairs now: black, navy, red and pink. I want the Star Wars style!! JR, do you have a link?

    Here's a link to Converse Japan
    Click on "Limited", and scroll through the shoes at the bottom of the page. It's in Japanese, so you may have a problem viewing it.

    Here's the table that JR mentioned (at least, I suspect this is it):

    I want that! Wow! I would be the most styling person out there with my Vader chair and table or ottoman, whatever it is. Do they sell it anywhere else besides Barstow?

    That's close, but it looked like this. I dunno if it's full size or kid sized. The box wasn't that big, so I assumed it was kid sized.

    I don't know where else they would sell it. It was at a K-B outlet. I think there's one at the Citadel outlets, which is much closer than Barstow. I dunno if they have the set though.

    There's so many things out there, but all I want are figures 51+ and the new Unleashed wave (save Vader, which I already have).

    I have to admit that VK's looks much cooler than the one you were referring to, JR. Man! I'm too poor though. I need to win the lottery.

    While touring DC, my padawan was given a Marin County Yoda Jamboree patch by one of the Marin County Scoutmasters. How my padawan was singled out is beyond me, unless it was the Scoutmaster I've been buying my Jamboree patches from but how he picked my padawan out of a group of 39 scouts is beyond me.

    I finally received my R2-D2 bowl from the Kellogg's Crispix promotion. It's pretty cool.. it's a big bowl.. it's not for eating cereal, unless you're into eating half a box of cereal at a time. I guess it's for party mixes and chips and stuff like that. I'm ready to have a Star Wars party now.
