I'm not too big into autographs.

Lynch, do you attend autograph signings?
Sorry - I missed that reply!

Yes, I attend when I can. My wife and I work a lot, trying to save for a house so I can have a place for my collection . . . um, I mean, a place to raise a family.

I go to a lot of cons (which is why my signature is what it is) and do a ton of through the mail autos also. It gets very addicting once you get a couple of autos back. I also go in a lot for the Wattographs private signings.

Oh, and nothing new at all at Setauket Target & Centereach Wally.

That's pretty cool, Lynch!

Found two Snowtroopers today at TRU and Target in Riverhead.

autographs can get addicting. I have most of my cds autographed but it helps workin in the music industy to feed that addiction in music. the star wars autographs i dont go all crazy for. I just wait till then show up at the big apple con so i get them in one, big shot.

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

Actually, the Big Apple Con was how I really got hooked.

My 1st SW auto was at I-Con many, many years ago (Stony Brook Univ.) - I was there when I found out that a last minute guest had been added - Caroline Blakiston (Mon Mothma). I raced home for something to have her sign, and all I could find was my action figure.

A year later I went to Big Apple Con - they had Bulloch, Prowse, Baker & Mayhew all in a row! I got 10 autographs that day, and that was it. Now I have more than 100 autographed SW action figures, plus a few random pics. I also have some Farscape figures signed, and a ton of Trek stuff, plus some stuff from other sci-fi shows. I've even gotten my wife involved & into auto collecting. When one of my boxes comes back, she is just as excited as I am to open it.

Okay Flo - what do you do in the music business that you get your CDs signed?

I work for a music company in new york that also allows me to work with several radio stations in the country. I meet all types of musicians. the worst part is that I meet new artists when they are "up and coming" and I dont bother getting autographs but I end up regretting it when they blow up and you cant get near them much any longer!

The new Titanium wave has hit: Hound's Tooth, Sebulba's Podracer & Clone Wars Y-wing... I need one of each of these, if y'all can help me. Also looking for the Transformers Animated Activators Cliffjumper.
Start searching Atreyu! Target Medford had 1 of each which I got for myself + a Booster Gold to complete my DC Classics wave 7. I also got the Magnaguard fighter & Droid fighter from Walmart in Setauket. They only had 1 of each though. Nice haul today.

Dude - you gotta get me hooked up with Rush man! Haha... they're are my favorite band, but while I have met all the other bands I dig, I have never had the opportunity to meet them.

OK - fanboy rant & wishing done. I have found nothing over the past week. Still looking for new Titaniums.

im sure the yavin one will be gone first, as in the case of most stores, leaving the jabba ones behind.

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

Thanks for the heads up on the Titaniums. I went to LG TRU, Commack North, South, Setauket & Medford Targets, Commack & Centereach Walmart... but I only found the Hound's Tooth.

I need 2 Sebulba Podracers, a Clone Wars Y-wing & a Red IV X-wing. Oh sh*t, I also need a Anakin JSF w/hyperspace ring (ep3) and a Red I X-wing if anyone see's those still floating around. Please STASH all & PM me... LOL

By the way, I went to Middle Island Walmart yesterday and they had a whole bunch of the Scramble on Yavin battlepacks. They must have put out like three boxes.

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

Setauket Target had nothing new. Centerach Wally had a bunch of the ANH wave, doubles of everything except Wioslea. And plenty of CW Anakins.

Still searching for CW Jar Jar (and close to going through an online store) and the Ugnaught & Hoth Trooper from the ESB wave.

Darth Lynch check Central Islip Target for Jar Jar. I saw some there a few days ago. Everytime I go there they seem to have him.

Thanks for the tip! I'll try to make it out there today. If anyone hits CI Target before 330 today, lmk if Jar Jar is still there.
