I did all my buying at either the meet and greet or in The party suite(What is the name going to be this year? I only remember Suite of the living dead which I think is what it was called in 2007).

I don't know. I'm really looking forward to WF, but ATM can't get excited to buy stuff
We have a Suite name and poster this year (thanks to Robb) but I can't tell you what it is because then I'd have to kill you and well......we just had George mop the floors in here.

I posted over in the New Stuff for WF thread on SM with what I will have but I don't think you're into Trek.

I know I've bought very little the last couple of years. I really only am into the smaller 2500 Trek stuff and there's really been slim pickings with that over the last couple of years. This year I'm only looking at picking up Blappy's Gunstar kit. I do need some more tools though so that's also a possiblity.

Yeah---please don't tell him....Eric always uses a wood chipper to get rid of the body, and it takes forever to clean up.

I haven't bought much of anything the last 2 years either---and what I have bought I coulda bought online from anyone anyhow.

This year though, I'm in for Blap's Gunstar as well. AND this might be the year Eric snags me on a kit.

You know you want a Jem'Hadar.....you know it.

Seriously though.....I was amazed at the first casting Erin sent me. It's stunning.....and I can't wait to get it back (it's being fitted for window decals) so I can start slopping paint all over.

Yeah, not into Trek. was hoping to Get Jimi's Radiant but I don't know.(see, Im so wishy washy on buying stuff). After last year, I realized I was blowing a shitload on expensive models and not really building any. I'm almost done with a 1/144 Falcon that I have been loading progress pictures onto my Facebook account and it's been coming along great. It's be done if I hadn't fucked up the clear parts.

Anyhow, I'm not sure about buying anything, but then, we'll see what's there.

I might buy a big resin Dinosaur this year. I have always had a fondness for the Stegosaurus. I'll have to see what I can see. I know there is always a nice selection at the show.

I might just trade Eric one of these Gunstar's if I can work out a deal to have a few for that purpose. The D-18 sure looks nice and I always liked the Vulcan Ringship.

Buy resin? Almost never. Trade for it? Hell Yeah!

Models? I'm too busy for models. Seriously, this may be the first WF I've ever gone to without entering something. I feel... dirty.

I had that happen a few times and it felt wrong. Like I was missing out on a whole part of the fun. I always try to finish something even if it's a quick build of something I cast for a customer just to show off the subject.

Exactly. A week ago, I was resigned not to bring anything as well---having the attitude that if I couldn't bring something good I wouldn't bring anything at all.

Then, a week ago today a friend of Marci's was killed in a car accident. She was 37 and left behind a 2 yr old, a 4yr old, and a Husband. Marci literally talked to her as she was leaving work and 10 minutes later she was gone. (literally)

Fucking brutal.

I took a sober reminder from that---the next time I walk out my door might be the last time. Good or not, I'm building this damned model----gonna have FUN with it, let the judges take a shit on it, and not waste my days NOT enjoying my life.
