I don't believe so. LOL. They get big packages all the time.

So FedEx updated their tracker. It's in CT!

Delivered to my workplace at 8:34am this morning! I have yet to pick it up yet from the mail room.

What I find very amusing though is that it first went to the distribution center in my hometown prior to being put out in a truck and delivered to me at work. This is like Grayskull's Moving Castle!

Beedo finally gets to live the dream of just about every kid who grew up in the 1980s . . . .

dude, i hate to do this to you, i really do... cuz your skit is funny, and i'm not just saying that...

what i am saying is, the joke you wanted to do, the joke for public consumption...

beedo steps up with the power sword, holds it aloft, and says "the power of..." and gets cut off as han solo pops in from out of panel, and shoots him. the next panel is a smirking han solo saying "hehe... i shot first." and stealing the power sword. that's the rub right there. [smile]

either way, glad to see the castle made it casa kool, and that you're having fun. the interesting thing, as a SWB collector, is the castle is actually much better scaled for them than it is motuc. the quintain would hit maul or luke at cvhest level, rather that striking he-man in the wedding tackle as it currently does. the elevator is wide enough for two, and maybe that suave skywalker kid could rig up some kind of zipline from the top when he wants to take his sister on a date (ew!) everyone would fit in the throne, even R2... castle grayskull is perfect for the discerning SWB collector. hell, even the second story outer ledge is wide enough to get some poses on.

Thank 'e, DR!

Actually, the panel I didn't shoot (and perhaps should have) explained that Beedo was doing this so he could become powerful enough to get revenge on Solo for shooting his cousin Greedo. First. };D

And, yeah, the Castle does seem to fit the 6" SWB figures rather well. Pity I ain't really collecting them!
