First to all my friends especially John (Darthberizing) and Cristian, an apology for dropping off the radar for so long and being hard to get a hold of while there was an unfinished deal on the table. As has been mentioned there were a lot of pretty serious things going on that kept me from having the kind of time I generally devote to the hobby. So I didn't do much of anything hobby related in that time span.

I even almost lost out on an item that I'd had on hold that was on my hitlist for a while. Thanks to the push back to reality from one of my truest friends in the hobby Daren (EmperorBurns) This rare beauty(2 known?) now resides in Mos Yglesias

Now the coincidence that I started coming back around just at the time where a couple of my other very close and truly appreciated friends (Andy Anderson, and John) were also plotting to find a grail piece of mine to brighten my spirits while I was down and out. Well, just as I came back and started working on projects that I'd left unfinished, as well as some new things..... I get a mystery box in the mail.......

Containing.......





wait for it......

seen hanging out with some of my Dias De Los Muertos collection.

Big thanks to Andy and his wife, as well as John for the laugh that I got when I opened the inner box. It's truly nice to know that I have such true and real friends thanks to this hobby....And while I can be a grumpy bastard at times, stuff like what John, Andy, Daren, and Mike Vogt have shown me as friends over the past couple of years definitely means a lot and is genuinely appreciated. I also even had a collector I don't personally know, offering to send me money to help when I was trying unsuccessfully to sell a couple of items in Dec. I'm not going to mention name in case he doesn't want to have it out there. But, thank you as well, I ended up selling some vintage BMX stuff locally to get thru that minor tight spot.

Joe,

First and foremost, welcome back. I missed your honest and to the point posts.. If you find yourself in Northern Virginia, hit me up and you are welcome to Casa West for food..

Second, congrats on the grail Uzay and the simply Kickass Amanaman bootleg. I remember that being on your hit list for a while..

I truly hope you stick around a very long time. Hell, it is nice to fuck with you at times.. Very Happy Looking forward to your Uzay article..

Jason, it's actually not the bootleg Amanaman that's on my hitlist, but a Hasbro Amanaman, painted with a sanchez moustache a sombero and a poncho...making him a "Mexican Amanaman" All for a fun laugh! And Hopefully when I get some time to travel and see my friends collections in person, I'll be able to take you up on your gracious offer. And of course if you find yourself in RI, you're more than welcome to hang out at Mos Yglesias,and enjoy the cantina cuisine.....lol

Cheers
Joe

Joe,

Let me be the first "new" member to welcome you back. Although I have read snippets about you, your collection and personnel worries I hope we can become friends and get to know each other better.

Appreciate the kinds words Joe. Like I said the Anderson's deserve the credit on Senor Amanamexico (ole')!

More importantly , I'm really happy to see things turning around for you personally. We all go through these times and they certainly do try us. But they pass and we return stronger!!

Glad to see you in a better place, and happy to have you back on here!!

Haha!! Really glad you enjoyed the meximanaman! John and I thought you'd get a kick out of it or think we were the biggest dumbasses ever! So, glad you liked it Wink. I thought my wife did a great job on the poncho. Made it out of an old piece of khakis. Got the hat on eBay. But I really wish I had found one of those mini bottles of Tabasco. If you get one at a restaurant one day, you'll have to complete the figure.

Congrats on the Uzay. Glad you're back in action my friend! Now, where's that Uzay article!?

Uzay article is finished, save for some gramatical editing, and waiting for a clean pic of the light caped ERG from Mete; it's ready to be transfered to HTML and formatted.....


Cheers and thanks again for the warm welcome home!

Looking forward to reading this article, i'm currently toying over the idea of weather to start collecting Uzay figures myself. I'm not a huge fan of bootleg items but i'm on the fence with Uzay at the moment.

Welcome back Joe. I was beginning to think you had decided to wander off to some quiet mountain retreat and teach monks how to tell the difference between Uzay and production Vaders.

Good to see you back.

Getting back on board plays second fiddle to the most important thing- your life back on track. Glad to see/hear both occur.
