View Full Version : OT: new addition to my collection

This addition arrived on Friday, October 24th. Her name is Samantha. She doesn't have many play features, but I expect her to develop some in the coming months. My time around these parts is already reduced, and sure to be even more reduced now. But that's okay. She's worth it. :D

is she your 1st child?

i miss the days of watching my kids grow in wonderment at each new thing they discovered while young.

not that they're old and jaded now at ages 8 & 9, but there is something magical about a childs 1st 5 years. cherish and enjoy these coming years, they will be your finest!!!!!!!!!

and i imagine, despite the investment potential, also too much trouble ;)
all i can think is, how's this gonna affect your attendance at future vtffs (http://www.experimentalfilmchannel.com/id7.html) :o

Hi Haggie,

Congratulations to you and the mother !!!

Man, you really should avoid getting your collectibles from scalpers, the markup on something like this has got to be a killer. :D

Thanks, all.

Yes, she is our first. And I'm sure she will make it even harder to get to a VTtime (seeing how I've never been able to make it before having the kid).

Cheers, haggie.
Always be a good example to her! :D

How many Action Fleet points did you have to save up for this mail-away?

Sorry for the lateness of my congrats, but just now saw this thread haggie :eek: .....but I did want to congratulate you and your wife on your little new addition. She is beautiful! :)

Enjoy her while she is micromachine sized, enjoy her as she gets into things and is "Action" Fleet sized and cherish her as she becomes her own one of a kind individuals, ready to take on the whole Empire. :D

Thanks for all the kind words. :)

*Throws some congrats in as well* :D

....and I wouldn't send her to get AFA graded! I am sure she is going to be much more fun to display outside the case they'd put her in ;)
