Re: Meet the Members! Introduce yourselves here!

Hello TXI Community,

I'm Danny, and I was invited to come check out this website by a couple of cool SW fans!

The first thing I wanted to do was post some images of an ESB carded Farm Boy Luke for TheGent's thread on Lightsabers, which looks like quite an undertaking, and I wish him well with the project...

Other than that, I, like all of you love SW, and the vintage Kenner line... I have not been much of a variant collector in the past, but I do have an appreciation for all cool SW toys from all over the world. Unfortunately, I have little working knowledge regarding Coo's and what not... but I do love to look at pictures of old SW toys whether they are Junkers, or pristine sealed examples, I love them all and I do not discriminate...

I was speaking with another member, and I mentioned that I eventually got sick of the modern Hasbro toys because they just did not resonate with me like the vintage Kenner always has, and I pretty much got rid of 98% of what I had. Apparently, I am not alone...

I pretty much just kept some classic figures, especially anything from Tatooine, which I always had an affinity for going all the way back to when I was little.

Growing up in South Florida there was no snow, and white plastic figures always seemed to turn yellow faster than pigeons drop their loads on tourists, so for my brother and I the sand stuff was the best. Especially if you had a cheap plastic sand bucket and went to the beach when you were little, in a few minutes anybody could make a Sarlacc pit, and the shoe box the figures came to the beach in could be flipped over and become a Skiff.... good times.

Anyway, didn't mean to go on for that long, but I did want to give a sincere thanks to all the nice community members that have been so welcoming already!

Now the welcome is official. Smile

That's a cool idea with the shoebox skiff. I could have seen my younger self having fun doing that.

Not all of us are experts on COO variants either. Wink Collect what you like, as that's what'll keep the motivation going.

Welcome Danny! Great to have you onboard mate.

Was going to ask the same question as Clint. We were both in Orlando last April for Celebration.
