    a bit about me and obsession

    I have been a fan since the 1st movie. The 1st movie to me is a new hope. I was hooked from then. I have a huge collection that i will share pictures of as soon as i gain privilages on this site. I am so Glad i came across this. It is the best site ever. my daughter is now hooked too. I thought i was going to be the only one in my family due to her being a female. Sure she has interests elsewhere but she is very involved and loves going to conventions with me. She is a huge fett fan and i am building a full costume for her with all the bells and whistles. I asked if she wanted to create her own style of fett and she loves the original boba. I had the chance to take her to a convention that mr. bullock would be at. being that mr bullock is the greatest celebrity ever she fell into the star wars obsession with me even more. if you get the chance to meet him you will understand. we have also met peter mayhew. another great one. I had a chance to meet him in my home town. I was lucky enough to spend quite a bit of time one on one with him. this was just before celebration 4. he told me where he was staying in LA. i thought how cool that he would share that. as i left i thought "well maybe he says it to everyone". finally when i did show up to C4and i was in line for an autograph in the next line from him. He looked over and smiled with head tilted like chewy. he remembered me. its those kind of things that make this so cool. enough of the cool opportunities. now i am building a jet pack for her.WOF plans of course. has anyone had success with it. if so let me know. what a great way to spend time with your kid.

    hey man, totally awesome what you just said...i remember going to the movie theatre in 3rd grade to go see the 1st episode...and like you, totally hooked from then on....of course we grow up, and the childhood gets left behind for awhile, but then you have kids of your own, and you want them to feel the "force" that just eminates from these movies, characters, games, figures...my son absolutely loves SW, and when he is old enough to help me in the shop, it will be his turn for a boba outfit...i think that is really cool that you and your daughter spend time like this together....and you are right, what a way to have time with your kids...let people call us SW geeks, at least i spend quality time with my son...

    Well, Fettdad is far more elloquant than I am. I can say that while I was too young to fully grasp the story line (i.e. princess Leia's full impact) I too fell in love with everything Star Wars and kind of sat and watched as the new movies came out. When The Phantom Menace was released my girlfriend at the time watched me as the opening "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." came across the screen. She later told me that my look said it all and that those movies meant more to me than words can say...she was right. There is something magical about them that can only be felt rather than experienced. My wife had to sit (and sleep) through A New Hope and even though she doesn't "get it" she gets me and lets me and my step-son go at it with this stuff. Fact is, she even loves this board as she sees what a GREAT and powerful community it is and that we care enough for this hobbie so much that we pour our hearts and souls into it and made it a community...I digress.

    Welcome brother. Its great here to say the least...

    Welcome, Berravecal! What a wonderful way to spend time with your daughter and bond with her. As a daughter myself, I can tell you that these times with her will mean the world to her.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing pics of your projects with her.
