    I did a Google search and came across this ebay for a fan-made life-size Vader.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/VADER-LIFE-SIZE-MANNEQUIN-PROP-REPLICA-STATUE_W0QQitemZ330049500179QQihZ014QQcategoryZ790QQcmdZViewItem

    Only got 16 bids and didn't make the reserve the guy had on it, but dang, that's one awesome job he did.

    I here it's pretty popular over at Baruk's Bar on Nar Shaddaa. I'm not sure if our in-house bartender can make one yet.

    JediYvette has a trade route that goes near there, maybe she can stop over and pick some up for us all *hint-hint* [face_batting]

    I think some stores pay people to intentionally go around to rough up the displays. Kind of like a Holiday tradition now.

    Either that or Yvette's messing with ya :eek: [face_laugh]

    Well, I caved in and finally bought this one. BestBuy dropped it down to 16.99 so I couldn't pass that up. It was 75% off the orginal price and I figure this will probably be as low as they will go.

    HAPPY HANUKKAH MERRY CHRISTMAS HAPPY KWAANZA HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

    Ok, late on most, but that's ok! Work has been INSANITY. I love Christmas Eve because you can literally just hand them something and they'll buy it. :p

    Now I get to prepare for New Years. For just my departments alone, I have:

    The Main front Octagon display
    2 full-sized tables (along with most or part of 2 other tables)
    3 Small tables
    2 Mini tables
    6 Endcaps

    Plus...
    Find stuff to fill armoire, regular cooking table, and 4 other endcaps.

    All due 01/01, 01/02, and 01/10 (for just one endcap I partially already put up)

    Is it sad that I still LOVE my job? :-B :p

    I have heard of the Cheeto Goddess and her desires. I think that Cheeto Puffs are the best. //runs away

    oh no you di'nt. the only thing going to the xbox360 is that it has better graphics and halo. its just a better xbox. nothing special about it. While the Wii doesnt have top o' the line graphics, it has a new control system which makes fps's more natural, and it has Zelda. <3
