Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians

I LOVE an extra day off of work - Woo hoo ! I have been having a lot of fun this weekend - well sculpting and painting 150 cushions wasn't that fun actually - LOL, but putting it all together was fun indeed. I usually show pictures Monday but since I have an extra day to continue working on it, I thought I would wait till tomorrow. Make sure to drop by tomorrow, The Falcon is looking good...you won't believe your eyes :)

3 faces of Dagobah vader

I got an email from Michael Contreras telling me about a feature I did not know about in the Dagobah Darth Vader Figure. I knew that his face plate was removable but did you know you can remove his head as well? This is really a cool feature - hats off to Hasbro for including an extra little secret!!! and thank you so much Michael for letting me know. Was I the only one who is surprised by this? I'd love to see how many of you knew about this feature.

As if you didn't know :) Episode 1 DVD Today !!!

I am pleased to be among the 1 trillionth site on the net to mention the release of the Star Wars Episode 1 DVD today. I am gonna go get my copy during my lunch break. I have a feeling many of you will be doing the same thing.

Personally I am more excited about the 2nd disc and the Lucas Commentary then the movie itself. These alone will be worth the price of the DVD. The Pod Race will be awesome in 5.1 Digital :) I will give you my review after I watch the entire thing. I also got a hold of The Phantom Menace VHS (I know YUK VHS - LOL). So I will be able to make a comparison between the 2 versions. Is it really a big improvement like they said on the net? I can't wait to find out.
