Hey thanks Daniel. Really appreciate it! Yes I must say you have so far fulfilled everything you promised! You Da Man!

Now lets see if you can deliver a copy of the AoSW Teaser Poster... :lol:

j/k...j/k... :wink:

And Dan, sorry for being deffensive but I just want to make clear to everyone, especially those I didn't have the pleasure of meeting during my recent trip, that I'm not one of those 'lazy bum fans' who talk-and-don't-act. If I was even in West Malaysia at the time I would definitely have taken a train down to S'pore to meet Kerrie.

I share your frustration. Like you, I'm equally peeved at Malaysia's so-called 'fans', who often boasts of their 'great love' for SW, but would not get off their butts to attend a gathering or event which is a short drive/bus ride away, while I'm willing to take an almost 3 hour flight to attend that same gathering/event and pay for everything from plane ticket, lodging, food and ground transport out of my own pocket. That is if and when I have the time and cash to spare...

Yes that's my real name Des :wink:

You didn't think my name is Plo did you? :roll:

Sorry lah that's a common misconception...although my name's the same pronounciation as 'Paul', its actually spelled 'Pol'

Long story...I'll show you why the next time we meet... :D

I can VOUCH every word that Pol has posted here. Pol is a MODEL Example of a TRUE STAR WARS Fan who walks the talk, 'nuf said. As an active STAR WARS Fan myself I've seen many of such LOSERS who tells the whole world by posting in local forums or even to the local Malaysian media that they "love Star Wars" and collect this and that Star Wars collectible, but when there is a local STAR WARS themed Event, NEVER SAW their faces, shadow or even presence as it IF they don't exist. Always the same old excuses - not free lah, no transport lah and a whole lot of crapola despite being given the heads up in advance via Forum Announcements, E-mails, PMs and even SMS.

I won't be surprised that a BIG number of these so-called Malaysian Fans have YET to MAKE the Effort to make it to PAY a visit to the AOSW Exhibition in Singapore even IF they have the TIME and $$$$....and when the Exhibition is over, they would probably WHINE to everyone that they wished they have made the trips and lotsa other crapola.

i think i have made my explanation clear here folks that time and money is essential...but that is not primary factor but like sith overlord mentioned there are just too many fans out there waiting to chance upon and proclaim or magnified their doings that and personally being a costumer and being part of this team i totally agree...

Let me add on here Don. Proclaim or magnify their doings, BUT WITHOUT the ACTION(S) to substantiate it. You know the No Action Talk Only types which can be found in any community in STAR WARS fandom. :x

I was just wondering... what's the next big event?

Visit by George Lucas? Mark Hamill?

I Think Mark's a better bet, unless Mr Lucas has some business with his company here that it deserves for a tie-in. 2 birds with 1 stone mentality.
