I have acquired new frames for my borken glasses. After almost 3 weeks wearing old, scratched up glasses I'm very happy to be back to normal. Gotta wait a few months before my insurance will help pay for a brand new set. Then I'll have 2 sets that are the right prescription. Grabbed some 1" wide paint brushes and sandpaper for making terrain while I was near the hardware store too.

My LGS had a sale on X-Wing stuff tonight, so I snagged another X-wing and a B-wing!

B-Wings are the best wings.

The A-wing is the speed king. It's actually freaking awesome to fly in the old X-Wing game. 

(Tie Interceptors can't outrun you... and they pop easily... )

The X-wing is the stock 'don't know what'll happen' fighter, pretty decent weapons and shiels, lower speed and poorer maneuvering.

The Y-wing is if you have all day... and absolutely have to have heavy weapons. And don't mind the ping pong balls harassing you...   

(Space is big, so if you have a turning circle the size of a small moon, what does it matter?     )

My favorite Star Wars game ever is Rogue Squadron I: Rogue Leader. 

X-Wings are great all-around fighters

A-Wings are zippy but fragile

Y-Wings are slow but tanky

And...

B-Wings are the happy medium between them all, with an ion cannon.

 

But mostly, I just like the way they look.

 

 

 

 

 

Umm...I recently aquired...umm...ground beef for burgers! Yeah. On-topic. Yes.

Mmmm, ground beef and Star Wars, two of my favorite topics......

 

Another package arrived today.

bowden_tubes_pla.thumb.jpg.25b2e8dbdea22968d67bf9e8e1032720.jpg

Replacement bowden tubes and couplers for the Ender 3 (the stock couplers are prone to slipping) and another type of PLA to try out (you know, to pad the order out to $35 to get the free shipping :upside:)

 

Also got shipping notice on a Kickstarter, so I might actually have a box of minis show up soon.

The Defender (Why am I thinking of a British 4WD all of a sudden?) isn't in any of the movies (IV, V and VI ), so it doesn't count.

 

Today's aquisition is the Hardcover book IV of the comic SIthrah.

I think those are the ones I'm using. They are solid pieces.

Ok now I'm jealous. I want a new laptop and have been studying what's out there and that was one of my top pics. Can't afford it right now anyhow but at least I know what I'm looking for and can keep an eye out for deals. Might settle for a MSI GV63 because it's about $300 canadian cheaper but it would be nice to have the better graphics card. I don't really play top end games anymore but it's not like you can upgrade laptops easily if you decide you want better graphics.
