Modern Trading / WTB: POTF2 Grand Moff Tarkin head
« on: February 4, 2010, 05:02 PM »
Does anyone have an extra of a POTF2 Grand Moff Tarkin head? I just need the head not the figure, but if cheap, would buy the whole figure. I need it for a custom figure. Please PM me if you have one, to make a trade with me.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Toy Fair 2010!
« on: January 8, 2010, 12:40 PM »
Okay first apologies to the mods if this is in the wrong place.

With speculation running rampant about an AT-AT, pics now seen of the snowspeeder, twin pod cloud car, and swamp speeder, what else would you like to see revealed at Toy Fair.

Personally I'd like to see Hasbro reveal when the planned Hoth Rebel trooper variant is as well as the plan to release the comic pack figures that aren't going to be released as comic packs. (I really wanted Delia Blue among others.)

We also know of the Galactic Heroes AT-AT and I'd like to see more pics of that one even if it is pushed back to 2011 for release.

Beyond this I suppose we'll see the EU wave again.

So what else SW related only would you like to see coming out of Toy Fair?

The Prequel Trilogy / Origins of "Shak-ti" (the name)
« on: September 10, 2009, 12:15 PM »
The origin of the Jedi Master's name are rooted further in the Force than we ever knew.

I'm currently producing a printed piece for an upcoming Indian classical music concert. While doing a search on the net for info for this I came across the name of another concert and musical group called "Remembr Shakti." Of course my curiosity got the better of me so I looked up the group then the word "shakti" on it's own. 

It turns out that the word "shakti" means: from Sanskrit shak - "to be able," meaning sacred force or empowerment, is the primordial cosmic energy and represents the dynamic forces that move through the entire universe.

For a further comprehensive understanding of the root of the word go here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shakti

I thought this was fascinating. It can't be coincidence considering the "Force" within Star Wars and it being a Jedi Master's name. So someone did their homework when coming up with a name for the character.

Cool huh?

Modern Classifieds / Scramble at Yavin Battle pack extras!
« on: August 9, 2009, 08:38 AM »
Man, after what seemed like forever, I finally was able to find more than just the one set I have.

I have already PM'd some folks who had shown interest in my potential extras from a few months ago, so they'll get first crack.

However, should they not be interested and/or I still have some left of my extras, Im' more than willing to help out anyone here that I can.

Here's what I have:

2X RED Leader
1X Cart

Yeah, I know not much. I wanted an extra Red droid and I thought I'd have the other one for sale. However, once my wife saw it and the color scheme, she immediately wanted it as it's the same colors as her high school. LOL.

Hopefully, I'll be able to find more of this set, but in the meantime, this is what I have.

If you're interested, PM me.

Each item is $7, plus exact shipping. This cost me $26+tax for each set (approx $27.81 each set). So I'm not making any money on these. Just looking to help others (as wel as not be stuck with extras of course).

Modern Classifieds / TLC "Scramble on Yavin" Battle Pack
« on: January 16, 2009, 01:00 PM »
I'll be buying 5 sets of these. From those sets I'll only need 2 of the carts, the 5 rebel troopers, 1 of the pilots and 1 of the droids.

So I'll have for trade/sale:
3 carts
4 pilots
4 droids

Perfect opportunity for any of you who want just pilots and/or droids.
Likewise those who just want an extra cart or 2 or 3.

Trades are figure for figure. I'm not sure what I'd take in trade for the cart yet.

Prices will be determined by what I pay for the sets.
If $25 sets then each figure will cost $6.50 +shipping and the cart would be $7.50 plus shipping. Combined shipping of course applies (to save you money).
If $20 sets then each figure will cost $5 +shipping and the cart would be $6 plus shipping. Combined shipping of course applies (to save you money).

(Prices reflect tax I'd have to pay on these as well-so you are still getting them at cost.)

I'll take trades first over straight selling them. Please PM me if interested in either trading or buying.

Modern Trading / B'omarr Monastery Battle Pack
« on: October 24, 2008, 10:31 AM »
I ordered this set through HTS. I won't need the animated figures, so they will be up for trade/sale. Those not buying Anakin yet, this is a great opportunity to get an SA one. Those army building or want an extra STAP Battle droid can get this one from me.

Trades are preferred first.

Please PM me if interested.

I was talking about this on another SW board I'm a member/moderator for.

Even though this would be yet another coincidence, how would you folks feel about having the Falcon at some point replace the Twilight as Anakin's ship?

I mean seriously. Not only would we get to see it in the cartoon (whic would be ultra cool to me), but Hasbro would then have a REASON to rerelease the ship, just with a different deco. Bam, repaint and instant dollar. This means the Falcon is not just an OT ship anymore and would have appeal for the kiddies.

This would bring the Falcon further into the prequels than just a glimpse of similar ships in AOTC and ROTS. In fact it could have that neat greenish pinstripping it has as seen in ROTS. That would be yet another way to rerelease the BMF, just in different colors!

Hmmm, now why didn't Hasbro think of that and talk with LFL about it. Perhaps it's still possible.

Maybe we could start a movement towards that!

I think it would be ultra cool to see the Falcon in the Clone Wars cartoon, and more than just a cameo.

Maybe near the end of the cartoon, a certain Sabaac player would find his way to it???

Thoughts?

This set:
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS16131&mode=retail&picture=out

Is up for preorder at BBTS.com.

I'm actually thinking of getting it for the vehicles as I think they'd make excellent SW customs. Anyone interested in just the figures then (as I won't need them)? I'd be willing to sell the 4 figures together for just $24 plus shipping or three SW figures in trade (we would then pay for our own shipping).

The whole set costs $65, plus shipping, which I think would be around $10, soit would be $75 to me. The asking cost of $24 plus shipping (which I'd estimate to be no more than $3) I think is fair.

Joe figures cost this or more at least on the pegs. This is a good opportunity for those who army build Joe figures.

Just thought I'd throw this out there if there might be anyone interested in just the figs from the set I plan on ordering.

LMK by PM please.

Watto's Junk Yard / I'll be getting married tomorrow 8/8/8.
« on: August 7, 2008, 04:59 PM »
I didn't want to make a big deal of this, so I waited until near the last possible moment, since I don't expect to be on SSG tonight or tomorrow. (but will be on over the weekend)

After 10+ years, I'm finally getting married to my fianceť.

For us, it's really nothing more than a legal ceremony. We're not doing anything big, just going to the Justice of the Peace. In reality the main reason for us choosing to get married now is that we're looking to buy a home and in order for her income to count towards me getting a VA (Veterans) loan, we have to be married.

We've already thought of ourselves as "married" for some years now and under current Pennsylvania law are considered "commonlaw married." This just puts a stamp on a piece of paper saying so.

Anyway, just figured I'd mention it, since I won't be on and when you folks start seeing me reference her as my wife, you'll know why.

The ceremony is at 8:30 am here in Pittsburgh. At 11:15 am we'll be taking our 3rd look at a property we pan on making a bid for as our house. Afterwards we'll take in lunch, then a movie, do some shopping, then dinner, then watch the Olympics on one TV and the Steeler game on the other TV. The honeymoon is postponed for now since we need to focus on getting the home first.

I know this isn't all "romantic," but remember, she feels the same way about this as I do. So, it's not just my opinion of the day.

Watto's Junk Yard / TRU Midnight Madness CONFIRMED!!!
« on: June 28, 2008, 04:18 PM »
Mark your calendars if you already haven't for midnight July 26 (Friday going into Saturday) for this!

Okay first before everyone gets too excited, this will NOT be at every location. Check your local stores for details.

As some know, I've been pursuing my local store's participation in this. I finally got confirmation last night that they indeed plan on doing this and that other stores around the country will as well.

I've volunteered to be in Jedi costume and will be asking for local members of the 501st for their help as well. We are not getting anything for this mind you. In fact doing this does NOT guarantee that we will be ale to secure our toy wants early. However I will have my fiancee with me, who will be armed with a list and shopping cart that night to scarf up as much as she can that pertains to my list.

Anyway, no further details were given to me regarding anything special for that night, however the store manager DID elude to something special for that first night. Now this could just mean the "First Day of Issue" stickers on the cards. I did ask him about that and he said he couldn't say anything about that...yet. So, I'm inclined to believe this IS that special something, but perhaps there will be more. Since we know that TRU Germany has bigger plans including some other promotional items, it's likely, but not a given that U.S. stores will follow suit.

Folks, I can't say enough how much we NEED to support TRU. We need to have them around to keep Target and Wal*Mart "honest." Yes, I realize that TRU is a little more expensive, but not much more. And they're a toy store for gosh sakes. This will in all likelyhood be the last big hurrah for we SW collectors (live action TV show notwithstanding). I implore you that if you have a TRU close to you (I'm aware of gas prices and hence the need to shop somewhere else closer to save on gas) and that that TRU location is participating in Midnight madness (MM) that you take your business there.

Target NEVER does a MM (that I know of). WM does by default of their hours, but beyond the A-wing IIRC they have no other exclusive due out that day. TRU will have the Holo Greivous at least and possibly more.

Most respectfully posted,
-Sal

I happened upon 2 Shadow Stormtroopers and 1 Covert Ops Clone Trooper.

If you'd like to buy these from me, the cost is $7.50 per figure and exact shipping. Shipping cost depends on how you want it shipped ie., loose, carded, priority, etc. But rest assured it will only be the exact cost.

Shoot me a PM if interested.

Thanks and I look forward to hooking someone up with these.

Modern Trading / Rex certs and UPCs for free!
« on: April 2, 2008, 12:34 PM »
Anyone needing a Rex certificate, PM me. I got two cases of TFU figs yesterday. I'm trading/selling (at cost) off 4 of those figs and saving a few of the certs for me. However, I still have about 15 certs left. I won't need them. First come first served. Maximum of 2 though please, as I want to be as fair as I can to as many people possible.

Also, I have a good many UPCs to go with those. PM me if you need those as well. Deference will be given to those I have had deals with in the past for the UPCs (the certs are for anyone however).

You will need to send me a PM stating if you want 1 or 2 Certs and if you do or do not need a set of 4 UPCs. It's Only 4 UPCs per person, no more. Again just to be fair.

As well, you will need to mail me a self addressed stamp envelope so that I can send the cert and/or UPCs to you.

If you request both a cert and UPCs and I've run out of UPCs I will still send you the cert in the envelope you send me.

Doing it this way is still much cheaper than you having to buy the figures to get the cert and UPCs (especially if you're not an opener).
