I also add my toes behind the Return of the Frank - ROTF.

Come back to us Frank, you are our only hope (with baggies and anything Power Droid related...)!!

Hi guys

It's been a while I know & I really appreciate all the kind words of support, think you all know SWF has been my collecting home for as long as I can remember, but after that thread I was just not feeling the homely feel round here & needed a serious break away from it.

I see non of those who were rather rude in that thread have bothered to put on their big boy pants/swallow their pride & comment on this thread in ways of an apology, but I did not expect it either so no great shock to the system there :lol:

I have popped on now & then to have a look at the odd post in my absence but think it high time I start working on putting the baggie guide back into some kind of order after photobucket doing what they did, so made a start just now & have the first 4 sections done, though putting it right is most likely going to be almost as difficult are doing it in the first place as I can't even save the images one by one as I am rewriting it, so it's all most time consuming & will mean ferreting through 100's of images for each one needing adding, so please bear with me I will be dong my best with what time I have, suffice to say it will be some time before order is restored, couple that with the fact I am limited to 10 images per post, means I am looking at a fair few 100 hours work just to get the main guide back up to speed, then will work on each of the others one at a time.

I also have some very stressful times on my hands right now with a pending house move & nowhere in sight to get moved to, but fingers crossed something will materialize in the fullness of time, sadly due to it my entire collection is packed in the seemingly endless sea of cardboard boxes & I have had to let many of my non baggie related items go as it's likely I am looking at a substantial downsize in accommodation, I am determined to keep all my baggies & baggie related items even if I have to share a bloody bed with them though :lol:

I will endeavor to become more involved with the forum again as the days & weeks go by, but no doubt most of the time I get free will end up being eaten up by the reconstruction of the guide.

Feels good to be posting again though regardless guys - I miss you to ;)

Let me be the first to welcome you back to the forum Frank and it is great news to hear that you are working on restoring the baggie guide, as the photobucket fixes many have applied just don’t work on an iPad. Hope there is light at the end of the tunnel with the house move. In the meantime sleeping with your Star Wars figures isn’t all bad :lol:

Welcome back Frank, when you get a minute can you have a look how much you paid for that Kenner 20 Back Power Droid about 3 years ago! :lol: :lol:

No but seriously great to see you posting again.

Nice one Frank. You know all your buddies are behind you and they are more important than the few knockers.
Mind you there’s nothing wrong with knockers...big...heavy ...pendulous knockers swinging ....
Fuck, where was I again?

Always welcome at my house Buddy.

Thanks gor posting again, it’s good to see your avatar on a new post!
Good luck with your rewriting of the baggie guide, sounds like it’s going to be a long job, but so many collectors relie on this as their “go to” that it will be worth it. Keep telling yourself that... :lol:
Please do tell what enticed you back, my money is on the well built young “lady” :roll:

Good to have you back :-D

Best of luck recreating the baggie guide. You'll get there in the end, I'm sure, just don't knock yourself out trying to prioritize it over more important things in your life.

What a ridiculous thing to say. As IF family could ever be more important than Star Wars (says the man who's wife is not looking over his shoulder and is likely never to read this post.... please Lord... : :D )
