    I am starting this thread due to a suggestion from Mr. Neck who said:

    <<One of the things I always meant to do, but never actually got around to, was starting up some sort of official collecting chat thread for the regulars here to post and have some fun in. I figured a thread for talk about collecting in general instead of focusing on any one topic would help keep a few other topics from getting "hijacked" with people socializing and whatnot. I understand that folks around here are fairly close and would like to chat with their pals, but I've seen a lot of threads derailed by this sort of thing and think an official thread for collecting related chatting would help with this.>>

    So welcome to the Grand Opening of the Collector's Tapcafe! In case you don't know, a tapcafe is a bar, often housing several games of chance. Here you can relax with your fellow collector's, drink some Whyren's reserve or Lomin ale and complain to the Twilek bartender about not being able to find "Teh Gunship", about how your favorite sports team is doing, or anything you like. For the younglings, the tapcafe has Nerf Milk and a correllian desert called Rhyscate (which tastes much like chocolate cake.) We just have a few simple rules, no flamming, and no blasters. Enjoy!

    "housing several games of chance."

    Does that mean you're going to give us the chance to win some of your collection, MJF? Go on, it'll be fun!

    Hey, Did you ever wonder what creature produces the blue milk in a GFFA? :p
    It's probably a bantha or something. :D

    So Mace, I hear you got beat up by a little red dwarf ?[face_plain] :p

    Actually, I do that often. For each of my FanForce meetings I generally give away at least one prize to encourage more people to come. I have given away several Boba Fett 300th figures, a POTF Bantha, sealed boxes of Star Wars CCG cards, a set of Doug Chiang lithographs, two-for the price of one laser tag certificates, lots of stuff. And at the comic con, I gave away hundreds of dollars of prizes during a drawing we had also to get new members. Dave Prowse (Darth Vader) himself drew out our first winner's name. :D

    ;) He He, me neither Orange Sith :D
    Oh and if we had anarchy how in the #### are you going to get your SW figures. I mean they'll be scalpers murdered in the aisle :p and people attacking each other for figures. " If you do it, We'll all do it! It'll be Anarchy!" However I know what you were getting at I think.
    :D

    P.S. Saber Holder! :) I can't wait to see Red Dragon too, Looks real Good & creepy. alot of Great actors in it also.

    ^ Pick up Obi-wan? I'd love to pick up Obi-wan! Any suggestions on what pick-up-line I should use? How about "The Force led me to you Obi-wan... I am your destiny...you cannot deny your destiny."

    Well?

    Thanks very much Linda! :)

    I think I'll be sticking mainly to the "Collecting" section of the boards because it seems the friendliest place and has the least negative Star Wars chat so it's an all round cool place to be!

    :cool:

    I look forward to talking with you all about the greatest hobby on Earth!

    Thanks again,
