Posted on 09/29/2013 4:50:48 PM PDT by Jack Hydrazine
Last Saturday, we told you about how there's a gigantic AT-ST Walker for sale on Ebay right now. It's still there, but why sell such a masterpiece in the first place? Because your girlfriend is freakin' sick of having it around.
The AT-ST's owner, Martin Fillery, explained the situation to the Daily Mail:
"I think my girlfriend is starting to get a bit worried about me. I've always been a bit mad, and I love sci-fi stuff, but my spending on props is going through the roof. ...The Scout Walker is amazing, but I realised pretty quickly that it was just too big to use as on stage, so I'm selling it so I can get more toys."
Those toys he's got his eye on? A batmobile and the ambulance from Ghostbusters. Seems like something of a lateral move, but what do I know; I've never owned an AT-ST.
But the moral of the story is: she's probably right.
He has a girlfriend?
Time for a new girlfriend.
(Maybe I’m kidding)
Read the comments at the link. Someone said the same thing!
He might as well have a circumcision right above the gonads, since the GF will bore of that soon as well (especially b/c his gonads are the size of peas).
Penny's comment was great: "That looks like something that Elton John would drive through the Everglades".
Just came across this about The Big Bang Theory show.
This Is the Physicist Who Makes Sure That the Science on The Big Bang Theory is Accurate
The guy’s blog is great!
Along the same vein is this - perhaps the funniest thing Conan O’Brien ever had on his show while on NBC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zWNJHS9PBE
You’re not the only one surprised: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zWNJHS9PBE
The number of people who, in a Venn diagram, would intersect in the populations of “No longer want my AT-ST” and “Need $15,000” would be very small, but getting rid of it because your girlfriend is sick of it is still no excuse
And yes, that's a carburator soaking in solvent in the bathroom sink. Please don't smoke in there.
Oh, please. What's the difference between an AT-AT, an X-wing, and a girlfriend?
You can always get another girlfriend.
Along with her hair.
That was absolutely ruthless; I loved it. I haven’t laughed that hard in some time. Thanks.
actually it looks more like a cheap porn shot...not that I would really know.
"why yes, that's an AT-ST walker in my front yard, you got a problem with that?"
I getting rid of mine too. The maneuverability is great, but with a growing family I need a smoother ride.
I’m looking to uptrade to an Imperial Walker or possibly will consider a Battle Mech Atlas.
Hurry - this deal won’t last.
It would make a fair deer stand but for what they want for it, no.
Probably the one on the left .... after an all nighter attempt by the one on the right!!!!
Looks like he’s going to keep the tardis...(in the background in one of the pictures at the link).
Hey! Fake blondes with fake body parts need millionaires, too!
He began dating, became engaged, and subsequently married, then eventually
bought a house with his new bride.
On moving day, it went right on the fireplace mantle in the living room. That
lasted all of about 43 seconds.
It looks like he has a Tardis as well in one of the pictures.
"Even dirty old men need love". *grin*
Pfft! Oh, please. ‘What is a “Tardis” ‘.
I went to the website and still don’t know what a AT-ST Walker is. Or why anyone would buy one.
>> And yes, that’s a carburator soaking in solvent in the bathroom sink.
Baked the front springs in the oven.
It looks smaller on the outside!
You did powder coat in the oven?
My instructions said absolutely not to so I got a junk one just to do powder coat.
Wanted to reduce the coil height. Nothing like have a fully compressed spring in the oven. Not something I’d now recommend doing. I was a kid at the time.
Oh that’s ok. Just a little residual dirt burning off.
Now the powder coat has some nasty burnoff that they say will be “not good” for the next casserole you bake in there.
soaking in solvent in the sink???
dude! that’s what Tupperware is for
(plus if you put the lid on the solvent wont evaporate and you can shake it to get better cleaning)
Definitely an old oven for coating.
Here it is in Star Wars: Return of The Jedi.
Does it work? I’ll buy it
No, but this one does.
You could make a walker costume for a child.
Note to girlfriend:
“you don’t own me. if you ever deign to tell me what to do with my money, time or intrude on the simple pleasures of life like heli-boarding, solo hiking, surfing, sky diving or anything else like wanting me ti divest myself of that which I worked hard to get, know this; You’re Fired!!!”.
No hard feelings and I’m jealous of that bass terd.
I want one of them things.
Tho if the Batmobile became available and my budget allowed I’d rather have that.
Can’t he just a small room into a starship bridge or space fighter simulator?
I think I just inspired myself.
That TARDIS could be the outhouse
Jubba the butt!!!..
The Batmobile did show up at DragonCon 2011 parade.
You see it here
at around the 2:49 mark.
Here’s an AT-AT costume that takes two people to operate.
