        Those are pretty cool, I hope they keep expanding SW Miniland, it was a nifty design last year but more really would fill it out. I'm interested in seeing the gallery as well.

        That Sandcrawler is really impressively big, they should release it as a real set.

      How is the weather by you today?

      I think we've totally skipped Spring and gone straight to Summer. We've had 10-20 degrees higher temps than normal. Sucks.

      What have you watched recently?

      Patton 360 is good. My only complaint about the series was it rushed through late 1944 and the rest of the war too fast.
