Oh yeah, AJ is a no brainer for being on the short list of great tiggers. He is always helping out and is a leading weapons guy who does extensive research into the different bits. he is also a really cool guy to know, just wish he didn't live on the other side of the freaking planet (then maybe I could sneak his Ledy stuff away). I won't post the details here in case he doesn't want me to out it, but AJ and his family also have a really cool cause that they are heavily involved in. They help the physically handicapped/disabled to achieve mobility and excersize through the use of specialty custom built bicycles. More than a worthy cause if I have ever seen one. I am hoping to help sponsor a bike this year, or at least help towards one. (Depends on if business picks up or not).

Your 110% right Andy. Mark has come to the board as a force to be reckoned with. He took it upon himself to gather and organize tons of information and links and put them together. He is an awesome guy and very much appreciated. Matt is also helping mark with the task so I don't want to leave him out either. Both great members of TIG and both great guys. cheers

That's what this thread is all about. We have lots of super members here, and anyone can give a shout out to any of them. This thread highlights how great a family we all have become. It isn't just for me to pat people on the back but for everyone to be able to say how great an experience they have had with their fellow TIG members.

BTW: I scanned back and realized I missed the Walkie shout out. If you guys haven't had a chance to get to know Stef, you are missing out. He has put in endless time making various guides and he is the sole person who has designed our latest banners and shirt designs. He puts in tons of effort to help us all learn a thing or two and is an all around good person to have on board.

Also I didn't post any for a bit, so I am going to use my mod rights to post another. tongue

I have made some great friends here, but a few stand out as some of my best friends. Some are already mentioned in this thread, but this one hasn't been.......yet. I really made a true buddy lately who is also very active and has been great to have around. From private messages wishing me well, to public messages helping out various people; this guy goes out of his way to brighten all of our days. He participates in a lot of threads around here and is always helpful. He is also the current movie detail King (don't get used to it as I will play next time up yours ). Of course I am talking about Andy aka: Nico. cheers If you want to get to know a great guy this is one of the best. I live far away but I think if I ever went to the uk I believe Andy would probably welcome me with open arms. He is one of those laid back kinds who would be cool to grab a beer with and share some collector stories.

To many people to mention, but a massive shout out to these Guys - Bryan, Matt, Paul, Bill, John, James, Andy, Roger and Taz if i have forgotten anyone sorry.

You have all excepted me and been very patient (Bryan lol) even though i started a bit hectic and my SW knowledge was minimal (and thats being kind)!! But i do feel like i have a new circle of friends or an adopted family lol Stormie Smiley

If you think the links was a good idea wait till see my next one its a corker  Wink  !!!! And I am not going anywhere Smile I have been a bit caught up with work lately but i am here for good  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil

And if i must say something it would be...... Roger- is sleeping with Claudia winkleman!! Bryan- Patient, LILI LEDY and factory knowledge is subliminal etc etc (some knowledge there) etc lol!!, Matt- Quiz master, Marvel champ and perfect wingman!! I could carry on and on but some of us are here to work!!!  study  lol!
