Something is coming in the mail


#1

Tomorrow. According to FedEx.

I have been waiting nearly a year for it.

It fits in the craft category, though I am not making it, I am putting it together.

I have wanted this since I was 4.

I’ll post a pic late Friday when I finally get it and able to post it online (odds are it I will have to pick up from Apt office or FedEx hub.)


Something Is Coming in the Mail (Redux)
#2

Is it a gun or a Boba Fett model?


#3

A gun was the first thing I thought of too! But what you want to bet it’s an Easy-Bake Oven instead?


#4

I vote for Boba Fett with the shooting rocket pack


#5

Neither - but Boba Fett is close…


#6

Bespoke Dildo?


#7

You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.


#8

I got this for it through a lucky craislist find early last year… should give it away…


#9

Depends on how big that dildo is, doesn’t it?


#10

There’s no way that’s going to fit in his eye socket.


#11

Forgive my ignorance… but what is it?


#12

The picture is a prop replica of a BlasTech E-11 Blaster Rifle from Star Wars.


#13

I thought that looked familiar!

You wouldn’t happen to be swearing in with your local chapter of the 501st once Some Assembly Required is finished, wouldja?


#14

It’s no wonder imperial storm troopers couldn’t hit the side of a barn, the scope is backwards


#15

A model of Slave 1?


#16

#?


#17

And it’s a tank sight, not a scope.

Also, they never pull out the stock, which shoulder surprisingly well. Makes me want to try a real one.

Not yet, though I might join up eventually. I used to do a Star Trek fan club when I was way younger, but I don’t know if I have the time.

Though I did have an idea. I looked at the local chapter’s charity events and they don’t have a ton of events. I was thinking of once a month going to Children’s Mercy and have a Star Wars nights for the kids stuck there. Personally I would have never stopped talking about seeing a real Stormtrooper when I was 7 or 8.

Also - FedEx updated the time table. Saturday delivery now.

Do I really not like it when that happens. Especially when looking forward to something.


#19

Well to be fair, when I first saw the notice I was like “Wow that was fast”. I think the first number was from when the ticket was made, vs when FedEx actually got the package.

Ah, it is still in the weekend :wink:
