I don't know if some of your remember the traveling IG-88 or the Traveling Bag from RS, but this gave me the idea to try to bring life in a similar kind of thing here on TIG. "The TIG" or "The World TIG" we can use an Beater Imperial Gunner,mark it with TIG (wich stands for the website and his name  Cool ) and let him travel with an greetingscard around the world so everybody where he pass along can write/sign on this card.
The idea would be to prepare a figure like that and then start an thread, where everybody who likes to participate can post a reply and if you have recieved the figure you'll have to forward it to the next in line. (And maybe posting a picture off "The TIG" enjoying his time at your place during his stay. I remember the IG-88 pictured almost across the whole USA Laughing)
I first wanted to wait with this idea untill i had an Beater Imperial gunner to use, but couldn't wait to share the idea.

Anyway, what do you guys think off this idea, should we prepare an Traveling Imperial Gunner?

Cheers, Dennis.

Ok since there seems to be some intrest, it might be cool to start it up and people can join in along the way the TIG travels.
I'll get startted by finding a Beater Imp. gunner first, does anyone has one that he's willing to sell for a slight amound (or even donate Smile for this cause?

I'm in Dennis. I tried this a few years back with Admiral Ackbar but he never made it past his fifth location. Guess it was a trap............

Wow that's very nice from Joe.

I just haven't got around to start it myself with our newborn son now.

Anyway, i think it's great as this means TIG could start the Travel soon and i hope that more members will chime in along his travels. Anyway i sure hope this one makes it way to visit Belgium this time.

Cheers, Dennis.

Well we are back in NY! The gunner had a good run at the beginning. Here's what we started with:

IMAG0999

Then we built it up to this

IMAG1000

And then we lost it all Sad Sad Sad Sad


So he's off to Dennis !!
