while looking for new stuff at toys 'r us, twice this week, two women asked me, "do you work here"! i wasn't even dressed like one of their employees. i was on my lunch break. i guess when some woman sees some dork rummaging thru the 5000 12" mace windus to find the only geonosian warrior, it must look like i'm stocking the store or something, regardless if i'm wearing a red vest or not.:)

but i did show one "grandmother" where the star trek stuff is. ;)

I get that when I do my DVD shopping, someone is always asking me where somthing is, or when somthing is coming out. Sad part is, most of the time I'm more knowledgable then the people they have working there. But I don't mind, I've been able to use that knowledge to convert a few people to DVD and Widescreen. :)

MTFBWY and HH!!

...when your children ask if you're going to Toys R Us for them or for yourself.

When your Nephew asks,
"Uncle Mike, did you sell your star wars toys?"
"No, Zach. I didn't."
"Then can we open them?"
"No, sorry, Zach, I'll buy you some and we can open them."
"Uncle Mike, why do you buy so man toys?"
(silence)
"Zach, I really don't know how to begin to answer that."

...when you move and there are more boxes marked "Star Wars" than there are boxes marked "clothes," "kitchen," "bathroom," etc.

It's funny to see my bookshelf become an "action figure" shelf. 3 of the shelf's sections have been jam-packed with figures now, layer by layer, and finally all your "favorites" are now covered by the "new". When you've filled up "all you can", you'd never stop and ask yourself, "Where am I going to put the next figure I buy?" Next thing you know, you come home with one more, and you go, "uh-oh." You end up squeezing them through the smallest gaps, stacking them sideways, and belly-up, and now you can't see them anymore because they're ALL covered up. :D

I think i'll go buy one more tomorrow, btw.

... when you come home, break the figure free from the blister, throw the packaging in the trash, go upstairs and add the figure to the shelves of stuff and go back downstairs without stopping to look at what you just bought.

...when the manager of TRU asks what you'd like him to order in for you next.

...when you start charging the public admission to the toy museum in your bedroom.

...when you get a letter from Hasbro with a dividend return on the shares you purchased in the company.

...when you can smell the difference between plastics used in the figures and know which one is the cheapest nastiest plastic by smell alone. :crazed:

...when your spare bedroom is known as the toy room.

I have been asked too many times if I worked in a store.

Uh, actually our spare bedroom is know as the Star Wars room, and it's bigger than my daughters bedroom.

But hey, she's only a year old.:crazed:

I can do that! :crazed:

There were 3 different kinds of plastics used to make the ultimate Star Wars figure: THE MOUSE DROID!

The differences between the one that came with the Death Star Droid, R4-M9, and the Death Star Trooper's accessory pack are profound!

Hey, I DID that!

I just bought my house in August, and when looking, I HAD to have a basement for my toy collection and video games! :)

I just finished putting up shelves the other day. You can look at the pictures of it with the link in my signature.

Me and my wife are talking about buying our own home and are looking for a house with an extra room for my figures.

LOLOLOL!! :D That's too funny! That actually happened to me. :)

Y'know, when i move I'm not putting star wars on the boxes. I'll just put 'bedroom stuff'. reason being I never let the new neighbours see what's going in. Call me paranoid but what's mine is mine and I want it to stay that way.

I just wrote basement on my boxes when i was moving to my new house. Though, because of my collection, there were more boxes to the basement, than to any other room in the house.

When you move to a new house and have 3/4 of your stuff still stored at your in-laws bigger house, and your kids' SW toys and yours still make your floors a precarious place to walk.

When I moved to Va. I had to leave all my toys in NYC until I went back there 4 months later to get them. I had to rent a bigger car to take them back. And my parents brought some down when they came to visit. It took me a total of 9 months to get them all here.
