    I just know I'm gonna forget someone - damn!

    When I read this thread, I couldn't let the holiday pass without giving thanks to everyone here for their camaraderie and their time spent sharing thoughts and ideas.

    In addition to the great discussions and humor we've shared, I also want to thank a few folks for helping me with my Galoosbro collection.

    Shinky43 - for the battle squads C130, HUMMV, Ent-E, "Stroop" Tanker Bug, and assorted other swaf & battle squads items - thank you, sir!

    JT - for getting star tours vehicles for so many of the forumers, and for being a voice of moderation (no pun intended) when emotions and replies sometimes run hotter than they ought.

    GSJ - for the extra figure SWAF battle packs and numerous hot leads to great auctions and great eateries - thanks much!

    VT - For Sandcrawler, Rancor, other assorted SWAFs (w/ sci-fi-con help from r2dee2 & Warstar), Aussiebraid, a complete set of PlaymAFes ST ships, the "Danglees" I just received, mixtape, and the ever-thoughtful extras like collectors cards and postcards - your bounty hunting prowess is rivaled only by your class & style.

    But VT surely has no monopoly on class & style among this group. From the anti-scalper creed to which all have so scrupulously subscribed, to the honorable cease-fire on auction competition for items so many of us want once one of us declares intent, to just being told we've been missed after not posting for a while, it is a genuine privilege to be in such good company.

    VT - Alot of e-mails on my extra MMs

    BC3 - A few private messages

    The MM board - Alot of odd posts...

    Yeah I know this post is another odd one, but I felt like adding something.

    Thanks to all of you mugs for being the greatest group of MM collectors and making this section so cool to be a part of. Thanks to all of you also for nifty stuff which you've helped me get in one way or another (whether it be someone sending me a big heavy box without a return address that the post office was very suspicious of or a Just Found post on the old Buzz Board that let me know to look for the then-newest AF). And a super special thanks to R2dee2, who got me the whole final wave of Ep 1 AF *and* the gold-plated 2packs *and* lots of SSG news, etc. etc..

    VT, these are not the times to be sending "wacky" packages without return addresses, I still don't actually HAVE it yet. Now if you were sending "Wacky Packages", the sticker/cards from the '70s and '80s...

    re: Wacky Packages

    I haven't even thought of those since Carter was the Prez, but after reading JT's post, I just saw a lot of over 100 pre-1975 cards going for almost a buck a card. I sure wish I still had all my wacky packages from the first two years they came out. Those things were SO hot back in the early 70s! It got to where we were buying not just individual packets, but the entire boxes that held the packets. The local stores couldn't get them in stock fast enough. I probably had 1500 or more at one time. Hmmm, I guess I owe my kids a little apology for ragging on them so much about their Pokemon collecting, now that I remember back to my Wacky Packages days.
