    The SSG 2009 Year In Review has been published

    http://www.sirstevesguide.com/index....articleid=2686

    Chock full of trivia, vehicles, and insane ramblings! 2009 will never be the same again! The delay was entirely Steve's fault!

    Anyway, hope you guys enjoy it, we had fun working on it. Steve says this will be the last YIR article in this format, he wants to make a change to a new format for 2010. So we have 10 months to get used to that idea.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    "We named the dog 'Chewbacca'!"
    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Oh, and for reference, here's the '08 YIR.
    http://www.sirstevesguide.com/index....articleid=1919

    I mention this because Tycho and I made several references to our comments there in this year's.


    Haw! Re-reading the '08 YIR, I see my opening comments then said that Lukenesses (Luke likenesses) no longer seemed possible, and then in my '09 opening comments I say the exact opposite.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    "We named the dog 'Chewbacca'!"

    The lopsidedness in Titanium love is despicable, you should have brought in someone like Warstar just to add to that!

    Aside from that, nice work. It was a very fun read!
    "Hokey packaging and ancient gimmicks are no match for good detail on your figure, kid."
    "I am a Klingot from Oklahoma in human boy form."
    "We came, we saw, we conquered... We, woke up!"

    I would bet we might not be allowed to give out raspberry awards for the line's turkeys any more because it's not good PR to say a sponsor's product sucks.

    Imagine Billy Mays: "OxyClean actually sucks! For tough stains, even if it IS OxyClean, it's never going to get clean!"

    But I don't think we really bashed products this year. Moreover, we bashed prices.

    I do see how lowered enthusiasm hurts the collecting community's moral or fans of particular niche interests like SW Transformers and Titaniums.

    But I wonder if my comments are hitting the mark on the changes Steve wants?
