Don't know if there's a better thread for this, but I won both of these on ebay (still don't have them in hand). Seller lists them as prototype, I'm leaning more towards they are just figures that didn't make it through the whole production process. Even with shipping from Hong Kong the total was less than $10 so either way they are neat little additions to my collection. Anyway, does anyone know a good way to tell the difference? Neither has a COO or date on them. Thanks

Vintage Kenner / History of vinyl cape Jawa
« on: July 30, 2014, 07:16 AM »
Mods feel free to combine this somewhere else or delete it for that matter (though I'd appreciate the chance for someone to respond and not that you needed my "ok" to do that).

Anyone know the general time table of when people realized the scarcity of the vinyl cape Jawa? And then how quickly did the $ value shoot into the multiple hundreds to the thousands? Could you have picked one up in the mid 90's for $100 or had the market already realized how low the supply was?

I have no idea when I found out how rare he is, but it certainly was after I started "re" collecting in the 90s, not when I was a little kid playing with my toys.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

Cost wise probably talking about loose. Even okay with a robe-less version if that's all that's available.

Thanks for looking.

Could I be any more excited about the "Tarkin" book? NO!

If Washington really signs Desean Jackson, I just want to say that is going to be a fun car wreck to watch. And you deserve every part  of it Dan Snyder!

Watto's Junk Yard / TWD-To Read or Not to Read
« on: February 16, 2014, 11:50 PM »
So I now have the first seven (plus some after that as well), sorry I am not a comic book guy so my terms may be wrong, graphic novels of The Walking Dead comics (the paper bound multi comics in one things). And I can't decide if I should start reading them (I have read the first one) or not. I want to so when Abraham shows up I can be all excited about him (or when Michonne did, etc.), but I also kind of like not knowing what is going to happen. Of course I know they are far from following the same story, but for instance I hadn't read the first set until after Shane died in the show and I didn't see that coming. At least not nearly as much as I have to guess the comic readers did.

So I would appreciate thoughts from others if anyone is so inclined. Thanks in advance.

Hall of Justice / Wonder Woman

Acknowledging my "like" of Wonder Woman to have always been about appearance and not knowing a bunch about her story, so I'm not talking likeness, costume, etc. here, I picked up a DC Comics Unlimited Wonder Woman recently and the thing is gorgeous. The figure and the artwork on the box are really top notch.

Jocasta's Reading Room / Choices of One
« on: February 15, 2012, 02:37 PM »
I have read "Allegiance" and now am getting close to being done with "Choices of One". Anyone else read these? I feel like Mara is a little too "good" in these books. To become Luke's wife she couldn't be straight up dark side maybe, but being one of the Emperor's Hands I feel she's too concerned with saving the innocent of the Empire. Just don't buy it. Almost wished I had stuck just with the older Zahn books and then the Mara Jade Skywalker books.

Jocasta's Reading Room / Recent Releases

Just thought I'd start this thread (it may already exist if I had read back farther) because I missed Darth Bane 3 and Crosscurrent had been released til just the other day.

Any help posting when new SW books come out would be appreciated.

TV-9D9 / Conan O'Brien "M*st*bating Bear" Frozen in Carbonite
« on: February 18, 2009, 08:40 AM »
Last night on Conan O'Brien they froze the Maturbating Bear in carbonite to retire him. Then Carrie Fischer came in said you can't do that and unfroze him. The bear then made a run for it, escaped "Fugitive" style and at the bottom of the waterfall Carrie Fischer brought him onboard her yacht where they drank champagne together. Very hilarious.

I just heard that the Falcons are trying to trade the rights to Vick now. Who is going to want to trade for an overrated QB that hasn't played in years and is still suspeneded? Even if a team wants (I wanted to say is dumb enough) to trade for him some day wouldn't they wait to see what the NFL is going to do when he does get out of prison?

Anyone else read this yet? A lot of it was kinda far fetched, but none the less interesting to learn the past of the Falcon.

Vintage Kenner / How to do "self" grading?
« on: December 15, 2007, 03:41 PM »
I have a 21 Back Boba Fett and it has some creases and a small bubble crack and some yellowing. When I look for a guess at value I see all the C#'s and prices but I have no idea how to guess what condition mine is in and I'm not going to send it in anywhere to have it graded.
Any suggestions?
