jes received a snapfast trade federation lander courtisy of brit cit!

until mm sets 14-16 are uncovered, this makes a wonderful substitute for this sorely needed vehicle!

after snapping it together, i was able to fashion a small hole in the bottom, so's that it can be placed securely on a mm stand!

it is currently on my computer screen at work, nestled between a trophy sith infiltrator, a klingon battle wagon, and die-cast gian speeder. the overall color scheme reminds me that fall is almost upon us!

thanx brit cit! i love it!

No problem GSJ - I'm glad you enjoy it!

Your Buck Rogers Starfighter should be with you in a few days too.

By the way, I have a SPARE snap fast Trade Fed Lander if anybody wants it - LMK.

Hey VT

I scored 2 BR Starfighters dirt cheap at auction (paint a bit chipped) - I knew that you had one so I offered the spare to GSJ.

The snapfast - it's yours - do you want it sent to Jeddah or directly to yourself?

he had indicated that since you already had one, (he refered directly to your post about it) he wuz offering it to me.

ok, ok, ya big palooka yoooze.

even though i thought i had clearly stated that brit cit only offered it to me cause he thought you had one, but that's beside the pernt.

since all's fair in mico machinery land, let's say i trade you said bucky fer something (lawd knows the last person who needs rescuing is you!),

as indicated in the bounty hunter thread, you seem to have forgotten some dinero's that i owe ya, so lets say we call it an even steven swap (if you wanna throw in your snap fast republic cruiser, seeing as how britcit snagged yoooze a real life mm one awhile back, i wouldn't complain) :D

glad to hear it. . . i Think ;)
i'm afraid i planned on keepin my snapfast repcruiser, not only to compare it with the mm version (kept my snappy mtt for same reason; fascinating subtle diffs :) ), but cuz it's cool in its own right. however, if you're interested & bc3 don't want it (& as we haven't hearda peep aboot it from him it seems he don't), i'll be happy to add that quiksnap maquis i found at the con last weekend. i got my own already & consider it a sufficiently intruiging variant to warrant inclsion in my mm collection. so lmk if interested, i'll even assemble it for you if you wish :) meanwhile i'll keep eye out for good snappy reppy bargains :)
of course, i Never forget deniros, be they Casino deniros or Untouchable deniros or Heat deniros or Midnight Run deniros or Meet Dah Parents deniros or Analyze Dis deniros or Gweefwalloes deniros (not to be confused with Gweefwalloes joe peskys or Gweefwalloes ray liottas :p )

it's a neat little guy, ain't it! :)

when you position the lever which controls the wings on the underside, it fits very nicely on a mm stand!

you also included two st guys! (ent d, and ent b)where are these ships from?(hallmark?) they are a little smaller than the mm versions, and not quite as detailed, but the painted schemes (particularly the ent d) are pretty cool!

sooooooooo, mr. t, whachawannado?

i will be more than happy to send you the bucky if you so do desire (as i have said on way toooo many occasions to number, if brit cit had known ya wuz in need, he woulda sent it you youse!)

lets say we do up the marquis youse mentioned, as well as you keepin an eye out for a snappy radient VII. does that woik fa ya? it does fo' moi!

Eh? Nah, I'm not really into the snap versions right now, I wouldn't mind seeing some pics of them next to their MM counterparts (if they're available for the photo) so I can see how big they actually are. I was doing some searching on ebay and if anybody needs it, here's an auction for a quick snap Sith Infiltrator (http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1465029487) ;)

snappy voyager, marquis, and the oh so small delta flyer arrived today! thanx britcit!!!!!:D

however did you manage to get all the decals on? i am amazed by your talents! i can't even believe that they make you apply the decals yourself! the flyer makes the sw se theater give aways, positively huge in comparison! it's half the size of slave 1!

thanx again!

Took about 1 hour per flyer - but far from perfect - I am certainly not proficient in applying decals (especially when they are 2mm long).

I'm glad that you are happy with them though.

Hey gsj,
I am really really impressed by your generosity!

First of all you remember I am still missing that MM Royal Starship, moreover you propose to vt to get it and forward it to me. I am impressed!

But I am afraid I could not accept your generosity unless you allow me to pay for it. Unfortunately shipping prices from US to Italy are awfully high (I know it!) and moreover I am afraid I could not send you anything as a trade, because of the well known Italian shortage for SW MM and AF.

Anyway it is a real balm for the spirit to find disinterested people like all of you on this forum.

Thank you,
Jedigoofy

. . .as i'm afraid gsj's a lil slow on the draw: i already remanded custody of that queenship to b'jr :(
[Now, before the resta you (i.e., jt :p ) get on my case about b'jr bein my "dumpin ground", lemme just point out that it's thanx to me & him workin together which's made a lotta great deals possible for the restaya. how? i turn over large quantities to him, which in turn makes him more comfortable with parting with the occasional rarity so that one of our mm netpals may have it. for example, by now he Coulda had five sickosailors; instead, four of you have them. so trust me: as i've said before, collecting's the art of the possible :) )
howEver: since bc3's sending me (via jdah) an xtra, beat-up one for b'jr, i may be able to get him to part with it when that one arrives. i'll keep you abreast- and feel free to remind me if i forget :) ]

also enclosed: euro-packaged quicksnap voy mminimodel :) the lack of deatil on this thing makes you appreciate the density of same on the galoob one; nonetheless, i find its differences intriguing, so thanks again :)
finally: mmm-sized delta flyer, which bc3 kindly detailed for me (painted, decal application)! damn this thing's immaculate! i put it in the ds2 socket-berth of my mmm 3-pak for safe keeping & e-z ogling :) super-thanx :):):)
now all we needa do is pressure jdah into sending my pkg, so that i won't have to wait any longer to send off jdah's containing-your-pkg shipment like i sed i would (timminator's mixtape'll also be enclosed; see the nice peer-pressure angle i worked into my piggybacking plan? now there'll be Three of us heckling jdah to hurry up ;) )

Glad that you like the stuff.

Did have the sets 5/6 cards for B5 MM's but binned 'em - it was along time before I set up my website so I didn't think that I'd need 'em.

Int Droid - hold off - just aquired a Dave Vader for my little boy and would you believe it, it has a Int Droid included.

Customs - will be updating soon - new stuff and I have re-painted a few pieces that I was uphappy about.

The new paint job on the TIE Hornet Interceptor is great - it is by FAR my best custom ever as it looks like a real MM - will be posting the new work in the next few days.

fabulous! the republic cruiser is all that i hoped it would be! a real stand out micro machine!

upon looking at the packing card, some of the shown but never released micro machine toys are a wattos shop platform set, which seems to include a never before released land speeder. The swamp invasion platform set includes a mm stap, and there are two more sets of pantspod racers. (actually in the jansen household, those guys ain't pants, the two jansen offsprings love those guys, and are always racing each other down the hallway)(dad jansen has fun with em too!)

brit cit also heard my cries regarding sci fi mm space ships, and included an aerial hunter from the terminator micro machines collection! a really supberb micro machine!
