Right now this is the list:

This is the current list as it stands


Darthmatt22 (confirmed) (in US)
To someone for celebration in uk
Section 8 (confirmed he wants again when he is ready)(may move down a bit if not ready yet)
Lobotic (confirmed in uk)
Aussiejames (confirmed way off on the far side of the planet)


Andrew who is originally in front of Mark, may have to be moved down the list. If he is still not ready by the time tiggy gets done with celebration then he moves under Mark, if he isn't ready after Mark, then he can move under AJ, and so on. He wants Tiggy back, but has some stuff going on so we are fitting him in where possible.

If you want on the list to host Tiggy at some point let me know via pm or post it here. We don't have strict guidelines but we are trying to burn a bit of time for celebration as it is planned for Tiggy to attend. Once we get past that if you host Tiggy please try to keep him a month or so at the most and keep him moving.

I'd prefer Tiggy during my summer (Northern winter) - it's easier to find bikini boobs for him to play with tongue

Tiampggy is getting to see all kinds of cool sites. The Magic Gardens looks really neat. Is it all made from tile and concrete? What is a knick knack tree?

An artist named Isaiah Zagar made it. It's from concrete, tile, glass shards, ceramic pots, plates, cups, glass bottles, and a ton of other random "junk"

Passerby's leave little things on that tree and it accumulates. Items such as pom poms, beads, jewelry, dice, figures, etc. I saw a head and torso of a G.I. Joe and Jasmine from Disney's Aladdin. Laughing

I had a lot of fun! It was my second time there but I didn't have Tiggy the first. I knew I had to get him there, though.. as it would be a great trip for him to be on before he's sent off! Laughing

He looks right at home in the magic gardens and in the knick-knack tree. Excellent artistic spin on one of his favourite pastimes too lol!

Tiggy made it to New York City. I went to check out a couple new places and found some really cool stuff!

________________________

The new Think Geek store that recently opened on the 13th -- It's a mecca of pop culture items!



Here is a little bit of their Star Wars section:



And Tiggy with the man himself:



Found this really cool SW poster that I may have to go back for:



Then we went to the new Nintendo New York, which is the only location in the world!  affraid  











Upstairs is a nice mini museum of Nintendo through the years -- All the systems and all the gameboys:

The art of this poster "Mark" aka sublevelstudios is one of my Star Wars drinking buddies and only lives about 15 miles from my house. He's done a lot of Star Wars themed posters and usually has copies of some of his items which he sells signed.

Thanks Paul! It was a lot of fun taking him places. My friends even had a blast positioning him once they found out what the purpose was. Laughing
