Fake. No person that would have a 16 foot tall AT-ST has a girlfriend.
 
2013-09-28 01:32:38 PM  
50 pct of the population at any given time is female. There are alot more potential girlfriends than lifesize Hulk statues.
 
2013-09-28 01:33:09 PM  
Then you bloody get a girlfriend who likes Star Wars.

That walker needs a squashed Ewok under it. Get a girlfriend who will sew up a little fuzzy corpse for it.

Not that would be with a guy with a 10 foot replica of an obscure star wars vehicle.

Or he could grow a pair of testicular units, tell her to STFU and make with the nerf sandwiches.
 
2013-09-28 01:37:17 PM  
You can always get another bird.  When are you going to get another AT-ST?

Kick that nerf-herder to the curb!

An AT-ST is not obscure, they showed up in multiple movies, and the heroes even used one.  Now an AT-PT, that would be obscure.

I'm torn on this one. You shouldn't give up what you love, but neither should you be an attention whoring man child.

This Way 2 Much Like amateur radio ops not allowed to have tower in yard due to spouse disapproval.  Never Mind local zoning disapprovals, there's way around some of those called PRB-1. Also long wires & antenna tuners, like we need.  de N8CGM

Meh for a girlfriend I wouldn't waste the effort getting rid of stuff I like. Just means she'll have more demands later until she dictates every aspect of your life. Life's too short for that kind of relationship in my book.
 
2013-09-28 01:41:35 PM  
Well its a very limited market and it takes up a lot of room in my shop, Ill give you fifty bucks for it.
 
2013-09-28 01:42:16 PM  
Dear girlfriend, It was nice knowing you. Good luck with your next boyfriend.

Seriously. My wife of 25 years doesn't mind me being a comic nerd. I have Nerd stuff everywhere, but then she rides horses and shows dogs, so she has animal grooming tables, etc. all over.
We each have different hobbies and don't care what the other does, as long as it doesn't interfere with each others lives.
If the ATST was so big you couldn't park your car or something is one thing, but screw it. I've seen plenty of nerd girls who are hot that wouldn't mind living with this guy.
 
2013-09-28 01:42:35 PM  
If I have to see one more mention of the guy eating food out of his beard......

Pomeranians and Belgian Sheepdogs here.  What does she raise?

Repeat from a couple weeks ago -- it must not have sold. So this time he went to the press to get a free advert...

Not to mention the framing costs.
 
2013-09-28 01:48:48 PM  
I know a girl that loves Star Wars, and would gleefully screw to death the guy that had that, regardless of his looks.
 
2013-09-28 01:49:46 PM  
OK, so, besides looking sort of cool, does it actually do anything?  It's basically just a huge statue from what I can tell.  Now, if it had an engine and could be remote controlled, that would be pretty cool.
 
2013-09-28 01:50:30 PM  
To be fair, this can't really be decided until we see a pic of the girlfriend. One really needs to know which is the better looking ride.

This. Seriously, WTF is wrong with that chick?

/female, single
//Star Wars nerd. in his age group
///might be willing to relocate (at least to the UK) and let him keep it, but not sew an Ewok. But I have friends who'd sew him one. He's decent-looking and if he could afford that and the car in the pic, clearly has a job.
 
2013-09-28 01:52:15 PM  
My girlfriend both sucks and blows.

buzzcut73: Fake. No person that would have a 16 foot tall AT-ST has a girlfriend.


Wrong, anyone who builds a 16ft AT-ST doesn't have a girlfriend. Anyone who can drop $160,000 on a 16ft AT-ST probably has his chose of gold diggers.

/Personally, I'd just dump here and head to the next comic com to get me one dressed like Slave Lea.
 
2013-09-28 01:54:15 PM  
A) From what's said in the article, he's already done with it and is going to use the money to buy more geekery, so this feels like trumped up bullshiat.
B) If the girlfriend is the primary reason, she needs to go.  If you can't love somebody for who they are, that shiat's going nowhere fast and will never be real.
 
2013-09-28 01:55:03 PM  
I feel like pointing out that an AT-ST is probably less than a wise technological investment.  What the empire really needs are some kick ass exoframes.

That's the one-legged one that bounces around like a pogo stick, right?

johnperkins: Pomeranians and Belgian Sheepdogs here.  What does she raise?


Boston Terriers. Small, portable. Her sister raises Newfies, which is like feeding a herd of horses and I'd probably leave her like a girlfriend of a guy who has an ATST.
 
2013-09-28 02:02:07 PM  
Honestly, as much as his girlfriend is probably a useless sack of meat who reads celebrity mags, gets drunk at hen parties every weekend, and whines about wanting a giant engagement ring, this thing is kind of an eyesore and I wouldn't want it around either.  And I'm a male Star Wars fan myself.

The money would be better spent paying some eng students to make him a two-foot AT-ST that actually runs, and chase chickens around the yard with it.  And he could put it in the shed when she has her mum over and wants him to "hide all that star trek stuff, it's embarrassing".
 
2013-09-28 02:02:34 PM  
I've now had about as much fun as I can have from it.

In other words, its not big enough to have sexy time in.

God I'm going to miss her....

The AT-ST is awesome, but I will give so much head to the man who gets me an entire replica Ecto-1. All of the orgasms will be yours. All of them.
 
2013-09-28 03:03:27 PM  
What about his box of gay Nazi dolls?
 
2013-09-28 03:08:09 PM  
Ditch her. There's got to be other girls who can give a good blowjob.
 
2013-09-28 03:12:15 PM  
dump her before you feel sorry for yourself

I have a replica Proton Pack that lights up. What can a guy get for that?

This was covered in Free Enterprise about guys and hot women who don't get geek stuff.
 
2013-09-28 03:40:53 PM  
If Future Mr. Mouse got his hands on an AT-ST I would make him get a storage unit for it until we could afford a house with a large enough man cave/basement/work space.

/been trying to wrangle a "live" R2D2 to be our ring bearer as a surprise for him
