    Just curious what was going on in the collecting world.
    I just purchased the newest Vader Unleashed (not the Best Buy exclusive) off of E-Bay!
    I also recently purchased the Mace Windu Force FX saber, which gives me his, Anakin/Luke(EPIII) and Vader's.
    Dark Lord Rising is my newest book purchase. It may shock some fans to know that I haven't read the Thrawn trilogy, although I own them! I started on the first book like years ago but never finished it...I'll go back and reread them here soon!

    I would like the new Republic Commando figure that has just been released or will be released soon.

    I would think that Empire at War is my next big purchase of SW.

    Dark Lord is a great read, Outbound Flight is getting better by the page. The Legacy of the Force series sounds incredible.

    You should read the original Zahn trilogy QGJ it is after all one of the reasons the Prequels were made. Not to mention IMO the best of all the SW novels.

    My collecting of Action Figures has been cut back a little, because of lack of funds[face_frustrated] (and lack of Action Figures on the rackso_O ).
    I have started collecting minis for the Star Wars Miniatures Game. The down side is that the minis are random. I'm trying to get a Rancor, but no luck so far, and I can't aford to just buy one on ebay(they're $30-$40). I have gotten an AT-ST and a Grand Admiral Thrawn mini! Also, I did buy a Mara Jade mini(and others) on ebay. Of corse, I have made many custom minis too[face_mischief]

    is the minifig game any good?

    right now my collecting of ANYTHING has gone down the drain due to the fact I spend $20 every 3 days on gas communting from Mountain Home into Meridian

    though I WILL be buying Empire At War the very minute it's released

    Just purchased Outbound Flight. I'll give this a read and then start on the Thrawn series.

    Dark Lord was great! I like how they deal with Obi-Wan finding out about Vader being alive, and speaking with QUI-GON!

    Yeah, I'd highly recommend this read.

    Most of my SW collectables I lost in the fire that burned my house down in September. I didn't really have a place to put anything until I got my own place this week, so now I'll start replacing them and getting new stuff.

    This might surprise you even more. I've never read any SW books. Crazy eh? My niece has a bunch but I've never picked one up before. Well I do have the D20 core rulebook, but that's it. heh.

    Have any of you built your own lightsaber? My friend Brandon,( you might know him as Kenshin from fandemonium )made one and its really cool. I want to build one of my own.

    Be sure to read "Spectre of the Past" and "Vision of the Future" and "Survivor's Quest" all SW Novels by Zahn before you read "Outbound Flight". I know it sounds like alot, but it will help you understand OF better. (If you need to borrow any of the above, I own them all).

    Yes! Someone to play Star Wars Minis with!

    Have you heard of Twilight Games? They're a small local game store, on Fairview and Five Mile, in the shopping center across from K-Mart and Savers. They opened in late Sept. and are very small, but they are closely involved with Fandemonium. I have gotten most of my SW Minis there, and when I was there on Wesnesday, I inspired one of the owners to schedule their frist Star Wars Minis Event for the 17th!

    B.T.W. Twilight Games has the Universe Boosters for $16(incuding tax), most places have them for $19.99(plus tax)

    Hi, this is Sean Humphrey with Twilight Games. I didn't realize it at the time (and it is all my error), but there is a Fandemonium dance scheduled to be at Twilight Games on the evening I had decided for the minis event. I'm very sorry, but I will have to postpone it a week and a day, to the 25th, which is a Saturday. The event will start at 4:00. If there are problems with this I may reschedule it again.

    Again, I'm very sorry.

    Well I got a few things to comment on...
    This actualy works better for me. I don't usally work on Saturdays, and now I have more time to prepare[face_mischief]

    Yeah, that Die-Cast Gunship is cool, but not as cool as the Action Figure sized one they're coming out with in May!
    So you got Baron Fel, well I have Wedge! We could biuld Rebel and Impeiral sqauds around them when we play!
