Dabid’s Blog – Dabid meets one of his heroes– Lil’ Anakin from #StarWars Ep. I Phantom Menace!

Lil’ Annie… all grown up! (Jake Lloyd & Dabid) Originally uploaded by Dabid_R2DB One of the huge things I was excited about at Star Wars Celebration V was that Anakin Skywalker from Episode I–Jack Lloyd–would be appearing and signing autographs! Episode I Anakin is by far my favorite iteration of Annie, so I woulda paid anything for this opportunity. Luckily, I only had to pay 20 bucks. I had to …

Worthwhile (And Not Worthwhile) Things I Did Today 8/22/10: How I Resisted Murdering LEGO 4-LOM.

Did anything worthwhile happen Sunday? Did it really…? I don’t recall… So this will be the shortest one of these entries so far… Worthwhile? Built LEGO Cube Dudes Bossk and 4-LOM from the Celebration V exclusive set. Resisted the urge to shatter 4-LOM to bits by hurling him against the wall after I put his head together wrong repeatedly for an hour and had to keep taking it apart and …

Worthwhile (And Not Worthwhile) Things I Did Today 8/16/10: Celebration V Hangover

Monday was a ho-hum day. Celebration V hangover is in effect. Worthwhile! Today was the first Matty Collector day since I decided I just didn’t gave a crap anymore. And y’know–my day was a lot better without spending an hour refreshing the White Screen of Death and getting myself pissed off and frustrated. To celebrate my emancipation from Matty, I put most of my Masters of the Universe Classics figures on …

Worthwhile (And Not Worthwhile) Things I Did Today 8/15/10: From Home to Endor and Back

Aaaaand I’m home. Worthwhile! Had a phenomenal Star Wars Celebration V. Too amazing for words. I was really happy. Not everything went as planned, but there was just so much that went right or above and beyond expected. I’ll blog on this extensively this week, but it was just a great experience. Definitely the happiest I’ve been in ages. Worthwhile! I took around 1000 photos (and a couple videos) with our …

Like a Bad Breakup. Burn in Hell, Matty Collector!

For anyone not indoctrinated with MattyCollector.com, it’s a collector’s site for Mattel toys run by their fictitious mascot, Matty Mattel. That’s him up above. Once a month, or twice on very special months, new products go up for order on MattyCollector.com. Which would be fine, except that MattyCollector.com simply does not have the bandwidth or customer service capabilities to take care of its customers. So promptly at 11:58AM before new …
