    went to the novi comic con today - disappointed in lack of star wars photos - they had tons of action figures, cards, etc. but i was looking for photos however i did meet an amazing star wars artist - he drew "darth vader's remorse" the image of vader thinking of padme (the image of her in her coffin ) he is holding is head and grieving - it's quite moving... i bought 3 of his RotS posters (he was one of the guest artists at C3) and his sketch book. this guy understandsstar wars - you can see it in his art. he is joe corroney and his site/email is his name.com

    Anything to report? Well, this is me, dropping by, 'cause I've actually been in the area this week. w00t for fall break. :D I'm almost finished with my Visas Marr costume from Knights of the Old Republic II, and I'll be sure to post pictures of it once I have some.

    Also, I've been ridiculously active in fanfic. I've taken on a huge project, that being writing a novelization of KOTOR, but from a slightly different perspective and a few paths the game won't let you take. Happy fun times there, to be sure. :p Seven chapters and counting, at any rate.

    This has been me saying 'what's up.' :D

    Hello. If y'all are from Grand Rapids I suppose this is where I belong. I'm originally from around Detroit, but at the moment am at college at CMU in Mt. Pleasant. ^.^

    Glad to hear that you are okay.

    Ah, yes, I used to work retail. It's not fun this time of the year is it? I know I didn't think so.

    said it before and i'll say it again - if you want to build a fan force, you must participate in the meetings....gives us a connection, a foundation. without that we are anonymous posters amongst the thousands on theforce. this is our speciality - grand rapids but we need to make that focus our reality.


    so...c'mon down....i've made the last two.

    Well, not very. Its hard to get people to come to the meetings. I don't want to scare you away because of this. I just wanted you to know. The battle has been going on for sometime to get people to come to the meetings. We do participate in charity events that TX0338 posts I must not forget about that. Those are very important and fun to do. Three of us went to Detroit to participate in the Timothy Zahn booksigning.

    I live in Mt. Pleasant and work in Lansing so your group is the nearest one I'm aware of. There are a lot of SW fans in the area but no club. I didn't make to the Zahn book signing but thought Outbound Flight was his best work yet.

    Hello, long time no post. :) I guess not much is happening. Haven't seen much of the latest wave of action figures. I guess thats about it.

    I tried to get some discussion going but didn't get much reaction, so I went on to other discussion threads.

    Hey guy's, Sorry I've been soo quiet lately, I've been super busy. I finished "outbound flight" and "swarm queen", I think I've finally fallen behind on my reading! Outbound was pretty good, but I think he left it a little to open for some sequels.

    "Outbound Flight" was a great read, but he did leave it open for a sequel. For instance, what happens to Obi-Wan and Anakin?
