Happy 2015 and Hope your all your Geeky Dreams come true this year.

I hope everyone reading this had a great Christmas and a good New Years... 

So that was 2014.... the year went by way to quick but it was a pack year with Cons, Movies and all sorts of other geek related going on's... And 2015 is looking like it will be even more busy... Got lots planed for the coming months. Just hope that unlike most of my plans they don't fall apart.... 

I quick update on the Darth Vader Armour.
I am currently working on lifting the dome of the helmet. I have some ideas and will be doing a post soon. But i nee to think if i want to make the dome a permanent part of the helmet or keep it as a two part helmet... The biggest problem i have is that the Velcro never stays stuck to the mask and the dome keeps falling lower than it should be...  

New Years Revolution.
With it being a new year i have decided to reevaluate things nothing to major just looking at little things like what i buy and how i collect and where i can... no... MUST cut back on.... 
And how i want my collection to evolve... In other words i have to sell a load of stuff... and rethink about the direction i want to take the collection.... It's a topic that all collectors must face at some point... I just don't have the room for everything i own and lets face it i don't display most of what i have... and even if i did you would never be able to see it cause "you can't see the forest for the trees..." 
The weird thing is i am actually a minimalist type of person and like to keep things clean and simple... but i have a huge collection of stuff and everything is on top of each other. I have a feeling of constant clutter around me. But i need to trim the fat off the collection... keep the good stuff and get rid of the tat... Well none of it is tat  but you know i mean.
Lets face it i can't go to SDCC with a big debts over my head... you should get that after the holiday not before... 
So to get the house in order and to slim things down i will be selling a lot of things on Ebay, Amazon and trading.... The funds will go into clearing my debts and saving for SDCC... Hell i started with cancelling a load of pre-orders i had on Amazon, Hobby Link Japan and the Forbidden Planet.  
Now i know i wont be going to the 2015 nor the 2016 one but maybe the 2017 or 18 one... But in-between i will be heading to a lot of cons. 
With Star Wars epVII coming out in December and a Star Wars Celebration happening in the US this year i am hoping there be another Celebration Europe in the UK. I went to the first one back in 2007 and i didn't get the chance to go to the one in Germany in 2013. So i am hoping there will be one in 2016 but lets not wish this year away to quickly... after all There is so much to look forward to this year. 

So this is the first post of 2015 and here is to many more... 
And here is to you all hope you will have a great 2015 and thank you for reading....
