What about all the different COO's? :twisted: :lol:
You don't own your toys, you only borrow them until you sell them or die!

Some will have loads of posts and some will have very few.
But I’m sure it will evolve some memories just like when the VR do when a new ship/play set is discussed.
Looking forward to this.
Well done Lars for putting this forward.

Good idea Lars you sassy little minx

I'd opt for one a week, does it matter if it's ongoing for a long period? I personally think not. Unless you did a figure plus one other item.

Be good to see peoples items and discuss the items too, great shout, roll it out angel buttocks

I like this idea. I'm sure it will trigger some good stories and discussion about the item. No doubt learn a thing or two too!

Yes I can't wait to see how many that will join this little adventure and share pictures and discuss the items with us :D

Great idea and should get a few people posting pictures
Would it be done in some kind of order or mix it up a little? Looking at the list and the way it's numbered now I wouldn't even have a go until 56 pops up :(
Hooch, somehow you always make ewoks look cool 8)
