NIUB IN THE REAL WORLD - SITH HITS THE FAN

You might of noticed it's been a while since I've updated, after my bike accident and work on Final Destination 3 starting to pile up, I had to get something done that I've been putting off for over 10 years. NiubNiub got yanked out his Wisdom Teeth. Even worse, it was only the LEFT side, I have to go back on the 16th for the other side. I am such a wuss LOL. Long live Codine :P

As if that didn't discomfort me enough, the Hot Water Tank erupted causing once again flooding in my basement. Now after the HORRORS of Katrina, 2" of boiling water spilling onto a toy collection seems extremely petty. Those people know what BAD really means. I can't imagine having your entire house flooded and only the roof peeking out from the surface. If 2" of water makes everything STINK, I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like for the thousands of victims and their homes in New Orleans.

 

MAKING OF DIORAMAS - NEW IMPROVED MENU

Finally, after more then 5 weeks work, I present to you the new Making Of Dioramas Menu. Now better organised in categories and with pictures to help you find exactly what you want to build at home. If you find any broken links or missing pages please let me know. I'm pretty sure I got it all updated but with over 1000 pages, you never know.

 

 


GOOGLE SEARCH - DO YOU USE IT ?

It's been over a month now and I would like to know what you guys think of the Google Search? Is it handy or do you not even use it to find specific items you are looking for? I did a few searches and found many links from the search not pointing to the correct pages. I'm debating if it's a good thing to keep on the site. Your feedback is MUCH appreciated. Take 2 minutes and send me an email.

 

HELP NIUB FIND NEW BIG WING TIE FIGHTER

One of the coolest toys ever finally made it out of Hasbro's doors - the NEW improved correct scale Tie Fighter. What really sucks is that it is available ONLY in USA :( Since I am in Canada, I need your help. If anyone spots one of these in a store near you, can you PLEASE pick me up 2. Heck, even ONE will make me the happiest Ewok in Canada. I can paypal you the refund same day you buy it. Let me know if you can help.

NIUB HAS HIS BIG WING TIE FIGHTER :)

WOW, you guys are great. I can't thank you enough for keeping your eyes peeled out for me. SPECIAL THANKS to Ben, Austin, Peter and Dave for sending me the COOLEST ship hasbro should have come out with 5 years ago :) Hee hee. Seeing it next to the Deluxe X-Wing is just too cool. Too bad there was no sound, but I can always use my Action Fleet chip for that effect :)

As you might notice, there weren't many updates in September. At least not as many as I would have liked to give. One problem was the weekend hours getting the Final Destination Trailer ready for theaters. Then my basement flooding which caused me to clean up house for the past 3 weeks. Last but not least, something I know many of you can probably relate... I had my Wisdom Teeth yanked out. 3 weeks ago the left side and just last week, the right side. This time at a surgeon since the tooth was impacted (growing horizontal and under the gum) and had to have stiches which I could feel going into my skin since the anesthesia had not quite frozen my mouth yet. This was for sure a day I want to forget ASAP.

Hopefully October will bring us finally the Episode 3 toy reviews I've promised all summer and a peak at the new Legends Window Diorama Display.

Frank. (NiubNub)
