About

Always growing older - never growing up.

Eclectic random geekery: Star Wars, Doctor Who, Sci-Fi, science, photography, LEGO, and stupid, stupid things.

This is my personal opinion / reblogging blog. If you're after my personal photos or awful photoshop creations, the links are below.

(waves his hand as he smiles knowingly)...

This isn't the tumblr you're looking for.

Move along.

LIKE YOU CARE...

As they say in the classics "I'm too old for this shit".

That said, I live in sunny Brisbane (Australia), forging a career in advertising / marketing whilst enjoying life as it comes.

I take photos on my iPhone, listen to (a lot of) music on my iPhone, and like Star Wars. So yes, I'm a geek.

That's about it.

Party on!

TUMBLRING SINCE AUG 2010

Star Wars Action Figures: Collect All 41!
Vintage Empire Strikes Back cardback from Kenner offering a “Free Action Figure Survival Kit” with purchase of any five Star Wars Action Figures. 
Scan by Skip The Frogman


I collected my tokens diligently, sent them off, and waited. And waited. Double the time past expected delivery I wrote to them saying “where’s my pack? I’m a sad teenage geek”.They very kindly sent me a pack with a letter of apology. Then a few days later the original kit finally arrived. I was mortified. I felt like I’d lied to, and thereby cheated (nay ripped-off), my hero George Lucas.

There you go. Photographic proof of my geekiness.
Darth Vader carry case chockablock full of Star Wars action figures.
Taken seconds ago with my iPhone … because I keep them next to my computer so I can play with them.

the original lineup of 12 star wars action figures by kenner

1978

Hmm, I’ve got most of these. Luke’s light sabre has been chewed a bit & Ben’s robe has fallen to pieces, but apart from that (he scurries to check the action figures in his Darth Vader carry case), yep, they’re still in good nick.  Only missing the Leia, Stormtrooper & Jawa, but I’ve got Bespin Leia, a Snowtrooper & AT-AT Driver to make up for it. 

Any my Greedo shoots first.

Happy Birthday / Anniversary (whatever) Darth Ambiguous!

Wow. 365 days of being here on Tumblr, seeing lots of groovy things, meeting lots of cool people.

I’m not quite sure if I’m statistically a freak, but here’s the important data:

  • 4,768 posts (average 13 per day)
  • 33,683 liked posts (average 92 per day)

My poor clicking finger, hand & brain! Anywhoo, to celebrate I’ll be reblogging some of my favourite posts over the next week. Trollin’ my own archives. Heh heh heh.

Thanks for hanging around - let’s see what year two brings us!

Oh - and bonus points if you can count all the Vaders. Any takers?

Yeah, we’ll have two large big mac meals, one without pickles, a large chocolate shake, and the droids we’re looking for.

Meanwhile, in Mississippi…

“but will she make .5 past lightspeed?”

That’s one small step for a Stormtrooper action figure…

HERE IT IS. THERE IS OVER $3,000 WORTH OF FIGURES ON THAT TABLE. MY CATS HAVE NOT BEEN ALLOWED IN MY ROOM FOR LIKE 2 HOURS. MAY THE FUCKING FOURTH BE WITH YOU.
I actually took close up shots of all my figures because there were SO MANY on this table that I could not focus on all of them. My 1/4 Premium Format figures suffered the most, I think. I’ll probably post those pictures over the next while just because I CAN.

Impressive collection!
