"Once I was but the learner- now I am the master!"

Got all my GOLD now- opened AND closed :D w00t! Many $$$ later...MANY, MANY $$$ later...

Buuut still- I got 'em! :D

Enjoy the pics- and notice another variation between the Toy Fair and SDCC Gold Vader's TIE- the "2006 Convention Exclusive" words on the sticker are slightly more blue on the Toyfair Vader. :p

Now to get the new ships! :love:

Very nice, I hate the fact that they are packing the TIE in wiht the TF Falcon though and the Falcon too.

I'm a little peeved myself about that...only because the completist in me will want an SWTF Falcon closed with the 2 Gold Titaniums to complete the open/closed bit...I'll cross that bridge when I get there though.

For now? I got some mad gold fever :crazed:

They're horrid.:p

Warstar, next time I go to Paris, would you like me to pick you up a gold Eiffel Tower? Perhaps I could bag you a lighty-up, golden Leaning Tower of Pisa next time I'm there?

You know what I'm saying.... ;)

congratulations though

(Actually I know- they're quite gaudy- BUT they're part of the line and Hasbro is seemingly actually taking care not to over-produce them...though the fact that you can STILL order an SDCC version on Hasbrotoyshop.com (http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/ProductsByBrand.htm?BR=495&SBR=219&ID=17222) makes me kinda' :upset: about it all...ah well.

At least the ToyFair version will always be rare! Same with the X-Wing- now I have 2 out of the 500 in existence :p That's a whopping .4% of the entire run of the ship :D (Hehehe)

.04% you mean right? Since 50 is .1, then five would be .01, so actually it is .004% I think.

500 = 100.0% = 1.000
100 = _20.0% = 0.200
_10 = __2.0% = 0.020
__1 = __0.2% = 0.002
__2 = __0.4% = 0.004

The '%' character means "divide by 100" which is why it looks like a jumbled up "/100".

Oh c'mon! I knew it was .4%! I just want you guys to feed my delusions of grandeur! *SOB!* :cry:

Ah well :)

There could be at least 499 Gold X-Wings out there still in their baggies, admittedly :tired:

SO! If anyone else wants a Gold TIE it looks like they're still available! :p
