    As for myself I got a Han Solo ( Endor Raid ), a Bespin Luke and the Action Fleet Solar Sailer on December 24th. ( In Austria Christmas gets celebrated on the evening of December 24th. :D )
    I also got a cinema suround sound system ( best one availible at the moment
    :D :D :D ) and a flat Pionier DVD player.

    On December 25th ( my Birthday ) I got a
    Pilot Clonetrooper and a Action Fleet
    AT-TE.

    P.S.: Soon granted wishes are a trip to
    London and a digital video camera! :)
    :) :) :) :D

    WOW!
    Now what did you guys and gals find under your tree?

    If that's a trip to London UK, let me know and we can see about timing a FF meet with your visit ;)

    Didn't get any Star Wars stuff myself, but that isn't a surprise.

    Got a Cheshire Cat mug including a Cheshire Cat cuddly toy to match, a diamond necklace and earings, gift vouchers to spend at my favourite beauty shop, a hamper from Fortnum & Mason and a tripod to go with my camera.

    Only other thing I'm awaiting is a rather large replica of Aragorn's sword from my wonderful husband - was a bit of a surprise and heaven only knows what I'll do with it :)

    Saber_holder is a one man army! :eek: :p

    To Charis:
    I`m planning to go to London ( yes, UK )
    in late January / early February.
    I love London and the UK. It has it`s own flair. Last time I´ve been in England
    is only four months ago.

    P.S.: What`s a FF meeting? Please explain that one for me. My bad.

    FanForce ;) There's a small one on the 29th Jan for a meal and coffee and another on 1st Feb which will probably involve going to see Star Trek Nemesis. If interested, PM me. It's always a pleasure to have visitors attend the London FanForce meets :)

    I´ve just checked my calendar and it seem I´ll be going to London somewhere
    betwen February 3rd to 8th.
    I guess I´ll be staying there for three to four days.
    Seems like I have to skip both meetings.
    Are there any FanForce meetings
    betwen the 3rd and the 8th of February?

    Never been to one of those before.
    What are they like? Are those meeting
    conventions or discussion groups?
    Where in London?
    Thanks for the help.

    A new 27" television
    a new suede jacket
    2 pair of jeans
    1 pair black cordoroy (sp?) pants
    Socks, t-shirts
    LOTR DVD, and video
    A Simpsons talking beer bottle opener
    Mini salt and pepper shakers (I cook, I can't help it)
    Money from my grandmother
    And of course the obligatory candy.

    I had a star wars themed christmas this year.

    I got an 8x10 signed Autograph of Carry Fisher in all her glory (gold bikini) sitting in front of Jabba the Hutt. (Movie shot). (Been waiting for this one for 2.5 years now. ever since I met Carrie Fisher at StarWars Weekends in DisneyWorld, but didn't have time to spend 5 hours in line getting her autograph) My wife actually talked another fan/collector out of it, it came from his personal collection.

    an 11x14 Of Darth Vader's mask (not action, but still) Signed by David Prowse AND James Earl Jones.

    8x10 of Jeremy Bullock as Boba Fett (movie shot) (signed) (Oh How I wanted the studio shot of Boba and Jango together, signed by both of them, but my source only had 1-2 available and they sold quick)

    8x10 Of Jango Fett and little Boba Fett (Studio shot, but a nice one) Signed by Mr. Morrison.

    Christmas Money will avail me a Signed & Authenticated Studio shot of Christopher Lee as Count Dooku. (I can't believe he's still making movies.)

    AND, AND AND AND. As A Present to myself, for successfully completing 3 semesters of college at 31 and maintaining a 4.0, I plan on ordering the Count Dooku Lightsaber from MR when I return from vacation. (or maybe while i'm ON vacation. heh.)

    My Autograph collection doubled in size, Previously, I had Kenny Baker and Anthony Daniels, signed movie shot. Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca, Frank Oz as Yoda, and Ray Park as Darth Maul.

    Also received a Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and the two droids in Rawcliffe pewter, to go along with my Millenium Falcon, Chewbacca, Darth Maul, and Boba Fett.

    Wow, a lot of good stuff. Clothes were out this year, that will probably come in three months for my Birthday unless MR manages an SE edition of Mace Windu, or an FX edition of Count Dooku's Saber by then. hehe.

    Anyways,

    Merry Christmas to everyone, and remember, it's not about the presents. :)

    well that's just lovely.



    Addition : I forgot to add, I also got the SW Monopoly game, but it hasn't come yet.

    As well, I got the original trilogy Soundtrack Anthology, with outtakes, expanded music by John Williams (was made for the movies, but not used.) and it came with a 64 page guide. The box uses the original artwork.

    My wife bought this, and two days later a friend asked where she got it, so we went back and checked Barnes & Noble, and it was gone.

    If anyone knows where to get this, let me know as he'd like a copy too. I'm just noticing, but the original copyright for this boxed set was 1993. I can't imagine this has been sitting in a warehouse for 10 years though.

    It was published by Arista Records.

    And Jedi Outcast for the PC.
