I try not to, when at all possible. I'll gladly pay the additional money at the local place for the parts if they have them in stock. I'l go online if all else fails - or Best Buy is the only remaining option. I've had local stores order my stuff before going a block to give Best Buy money.

So, what did the pricetag say?
The price for all of the items was $50.00 USD

it also included two Babylon 5 action figures as well (not pictured).
$50 - you didn't buy it - you stole it!!
I also would have bought it. Well done.
That was my thoughts when I noticed the price of it. $50.00 for everything, oh hell yes. I momentary considered not doing it, but I knew if I left that place without it I'd hate myself. And I'd really hate myself if I came back latter and it was gone.

According to Ebay my collection isn't worth much, maybe just the $50.00, but its not about the money as it is about the memory.

I love the personal attention and how you're able to be nerdy with the guys in the local places.

Re: I am a Nerd.

My single warning ever was after a squabble in a thread about nerds. I called out the mod, Lord Garth, on this and challenged him to a duel with pocket protectors. "Let's see whose is bigger!"
The scoundrel declined the duel and the warning was rescinded instead. Victory!


Okay, there were some other details I've left out. But those events did happen.

Re: I am a Nerd.

You don't need to protect a pocket protector. It does the protecting for you!

Maybe it should be "usernames have been changed to protect those involved." Listen, if someone takes a shot at Lord Garth, I wasn't here, okay?

Beverly is just in the warp bubble.

She'll be back later in the episode.


I would love to be able to buy my computer parts in a local store. It would make returns so much easier. But the prices online are so much better.

This. Completely and utterly this. I was in my late teens when TNG came out, and back then I never had the inkling to buy any of the action figures and sets, much to my current regret. The only thing I've treated myself to so far is a K'Ehleyr figure, but I'd like to expand the collection.

Is it the lifesize K'Ehleyr figure?

Sorry, no. Good thing, as I'm 5'2". We'd never be able to share a wardrobe.

I once accidentially initiated a Klingon bar brawl when I growled at a board member in a Quark's bar thread. It took several pages till he finally discovered that he had misinterpreted the nature of the growl: I'm female and he was handsome

Am I not a nerd because I have no action figures, toys, collectables, models? (Though I've secretly desired one of those neon-y lightsabers).

Or am I a nerd because I own every Star Trek series and film, at least one Trek game and LoTR (the books and the films?)
