Where's my Checkbook???

From slashdot, we have someone who's selling an approximately 1/32nd scale model of a rebel blockade runner. Sounds reasonable? Take a look, the model is 32 feet long. Built so you can play with the action figures Kenner makes inside it to scale.
Lord help us if Richie sees it. He'll probably want to live in it.
eMail this entry!
Wow.... and I thought I was a SW geek. Damn, I've got to get off my duff and start building custom, to scale toys. And to think I was perfectly happy throwing the Millenium Falcon off my roof to see if it would really fly (w/ figures inside, of course). Now that was a pretty damn resiliant toy! Not only did it not smash into tiny pieces, it barely had a scratch.
Try THAT with your to-scale blockade runner, Michael!
I was the prissy kid that kept all his toys immaculate. My brother was the one that tossed sh*t off of roofs (when he wasn't falling through them).
Strangely now, our roles have reversed. He barely touches his cars without gloves on, and I barely wash mine once a year.
You were both adopted. LOL
