1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    You've no idea the awesomeness that I have in my parent's basement. Includes but is not limited to that At At. Also includes a little thing I like to call the GI Joe Aircraft Carrier.

    Mostly because that's what it's called.

    It's in pieces and hasn't seen the light of day since the 1980s, but thats not even close to the point.

    We had one. Along with many, many other pieces of iconic Kenner goodness from 1980-83 (ESB and ROTJ). I fought my mom when she decided to donate EVERYTHING. I remember specifically telling her that they were going to be worth a lot of money someday (I had at least three unopened mint Darth Vader figures from ESB alone, ferchristssake!). And people wonder why I'm so obsessed with thrifting these days!

    Yes. I was there in late July this year. Another childhood dream fulfilled!

    Sadly its a new Hasbro one. I should still be able to quadruple my money on it IF I decide to sell it.

    I also passed on a pair of Magnanni Brown Suede Double Monks in pretty good shape that were $40. I feel like I shouldn't have. So if any of you Twin Cities people want them they are at the Goodwill in Stillwater.

    Oh yes. They're all quite loud, but I've had good luck flipping them, and I hope that luck continues.

    Ugggghhhh, I didn't have the Aircraft carrier, but I had the Terrordrome, amongst many other relics toys from the 80's, and I sold them in my early 20's when I was short on cash. :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

    Sometimes it's amazing what you can pick up for a buck.

    Never posted much in here but I'm sure I've picked up a few ebay sport coats from you guys [​IMG]

    Finally made it out to the savers in my area. Not bad. I've got a few other hot spots that the suburban kids don't know about so I'll stick to those. I usually just shop for myself.

    Picked this up for $10. No tags of any sort. Love the houndstooth though.

    Hard to tell with these pics but there's maroon and dark green in there.
