I got the labcoat free when I was able to correctly answer the BBC booth gal's trivia question from the awesome panel a couple days prior. It was a great panel, I didn't think for a second, the answer was on my lips instantly.

- (4) each Nerf Alpha Trooper CS-18 blasters. 1 for me, 1 for a guy getting married to our BrideZilla friend (I felt sorry for the guy. I wrapped it up really classy like and didn't sign the card I taped to the box that instructed him to use it in good health to amuse himself and irritate his new wife). The other 2 are Christmas gifts for my oldest nephew and a son of a family friend.

- SW LEGO 8089 Hoth Wampa Cave set for my wife.

Snowspeeder
AT-AT
Dak
AT-AT commander
Jabba's throne

That takes care of about 75% of my "wants" from now until the end of the year. If the hailfire droid goes on sale between now and Christmas I'll probably end up getting it just to chase the cats.

Not really a purchase, but I'm sure it'll cost me plenty of money... yesterday I brought home my new baby boy from the hospital. Mom and baby are doing great. He was born on 8/12/10 and weighed 8 pounds 12 ounces. :love:

Thats kind of cool. While "color change" isn't anything new, I don't think I've ever seen it applied to a shirt before. Any special wash instructions?

At TRU's BOGO sale I got Saga Legends Hoth Han to get the hood up version of this figure and a Snowspeeder Luke. Since I'll be getting one of the vintage package Snowspeeders, I'd like an extra Luke to display inside the speeder.

Nothing on the shirt OR tag. That's the scary part! I'll have to do some research (or maybe just call the crazy store my son purchased it at) and find out.

- Nike Zoom Converge sneakers (white, grey, red, and black).

- (3) Arturo Fuente cigars from Rich's Smoke Shop in downtown Portland.

- Benchmade 3350 (Mini Infidel). This was a disappointing purchase. The action is crisp with no lockup or lag, but the blade was less than sharp when I got it home and while spending way more time than necessary, I just could not get an edge on it. Combined with a less than practical blade length, this knife, while very cool in concept and looking good in the display case, is going back to the store for a refund. Complete bummer, since I have other Benchmade OTF's and 2 regular sized Infidels in my collection, but this one just isn't working for me.

What type of steel is the blade made of? That's really disappointing to hear from Benchmade. Is this one of their second-string offerings? I have one of their "economical" second-stringers I use daily at work and the business end is made of ATS-34. Boy that sucker keeps an edge!

Okay, so here's the troubling thing... It's D2 which is the same steel as my originial Infidel. It's not a second stringer, it's made right here in Oregon. It's a compact version of the double edged Infidel. In concept, it's awesome. But I've been disappointed. Hopefully the store I bought it from will give me a refund when I take it back tomorrow.

I bought one of their tactical sharpeners last year for touch up sharpening and it works on EVERY BM knife of theirs that I own. When I brought the Mini Infidel home, I noticed the blade was a little dull, so I tried putting an edge on it and NOTHING! I spent a LOT of time on it. Finally my wife told me to give up and take it back.

ATS-34 keeps a pretty mean edge, I agree!. I have 2 Eclipses from the late 90's (my first Benchmades), and they have ATS-34 steel blades.
