Modern Trading / 1 Complete Vintage Millenium Falcon
« on: January 19, 2004, 10:23 PM »
O.K. I'm tapped for cash and the wife won't let me by Star Wars stuff. So trading is the best way to stay active.  ;)

I would like to sell off one of my complete loose vintage Millenium Falcons (including the hard to find Jedi Ball). I am willing to trade it for a variety of vintage items. According to page 355 of The Star Wars Super Collector's Wish Book (2002 edition) it is valued at $95 US. I am easily flexible on that. I would love an AT-AT (pg.354 @ $88 US) for example.

I will take an assortment of these items. If you make it sound interesting we have a deal:

AT-ST Scout Walker (chicken walker)
POTF figures loose (especially R2-D2)
origional weapons-Leia Organa, Han Solo
complete Luke Jedi Knight
Tie Fighter
Vader's Tie Fighter
Ewok Combat Glider
Ewok Catapult
Rebel Transport
Droid Factory
Rancor Monster
Droids R2-D2 loose
Droids Coin R2-D2
C-3PO Carrying Case
Any complete sets of trading cards

Episode 1 Figure MOC
Captain Panaka
Naboo Royal Security
Adi Gallia
Darth Maul (Sith Lord)
Obi-Wan (Jedi Knight)
Darth Sidious (Holograph)
Naboo Royal Guard
Jar Jar (swimming)
Qui-Gon (Jedi Master)
Destroyer Droid (Battle Damage)
Pit Droids
Queen Amidala (w/ Ascention Gun)
Accessory Packs

And any R2-D2's moc or loose from any line that I don't have.

If you've always wanted a Millenium Falcon here's your chance. You can get rid of your extras or unwanted items and help me out at the same time.

Lets make a deal!

Watto's Junk Yard / The Worst Movie Ever
« on: January 4, 2004, 07:18 AM »
What movie do you feel was the worst creation to ever leave Hollywood? I know the last two Matrix were pretty bad, but I don't think either qualify.

My vote goes to the 1980's version of Flash Gordon or maybe Never Ending Story II.

Does anybody know of any good english speaking Canadian/European/Asian Star Wars forums?

I can think of:

I'm curious to see some foriegn input regarding Star Wars collecting and find some of those hard to get overseas cards.  ;)

Vintage Kenner / $1000 Shopping Spree
« on: December 13, 2003, 10:29 AM »

You've just won $1000 US credit from ebay to spend on Star Wars products as you see fit (just pretend). You can get as many items that fit in your budget or just 1 big juicy one. Don't forget to keep shipping in mind. Its your chance to get those certain things you wouldn't normally think about spending money on or the opportunity to finish off part of your collection.

What would you get?

What particular items would you aim for if you had money to burn?

Tell us about it in this thread or if your on ebay browsing, post a link to that particular item(s) you would get.

Feedback / TopJedi's feedback
« on: September 9, 2003, 01:41 AM »
This was the best thing that could have happened to me. TopJedi sold me my "brass ring" of collecting. Not only was it described to a "T", it was well packed and at a very reasonable price.

Take a look at his trades list and don't fear about not getting exactly what is described.

Thanks man! A+

(I wouldn't have got this item if it wasn't for JediDefender)

Collections / Specialized Collections

What are you specializing in? Are you trying to collect all the Boba Fetts? Are you trying to get every speeder bike? Well whatever it is, post it in here.

Be the local authority on what you specialize in.

Modern Trading / My Big Fat Vintage Trades List
« on: August 24, 2003, 04:30 PM »
This is a list of my vintage haves for trade. I am trying to be very picky in my c5-c10 descriptions so they might actually rate higher. Items marked with an "x" have extra descriptions (definately not a c9) but better than you might think. Before any trading is done we will communicate with better descriptions of eachothers items to avoid complications.

I will be listing the weapons separately so you can get just the figure and/or the weapon.

I have a bunch of vintage and a bit of modern for trade. If you have or need origional ( no repro ) weapons I would love to see what we can do.

Maybe you want a Falcon or parts?

Vintage Kenner / Done
« on: July 19, 2003, 05:03 PM »
I finally got my last vintage loose figure up to ROTJ. It was Lumat the Ewok and he is mint!

How many more vintage figures to that point do you need?

Can anybody tell me if they have a Clone War R2-D2? If they don't, are they going to make one?

Any pictures?

Watto's Junk Yard / What are your collecting goals?
« on: June 23, 2003, 09:38 AM »
The way I look at collecting is having a collection inside of a collection. Some people have alot of Star Wars stuff but they specifically try to collect a set of something.

Myself I have alot of figures moc from the different series-just the ones I like. My collections inside of a collection would be trying to get one of every loose vintage figure, all Ep.1 moc, and one of every different R2-D2 card variation that ever came out.

Realistically, what are your immediate goals (not like "I want one of everything"). What is your collecting passion?

Does Jar Jar Binks suck or am I alone on this one?

Hey Hasbro! / Hasbro Points
« on: June 8, 2003, 11:26 AM »
This was a little something I started a few months ago at . The article ran its course and had alot of feedback I was thinking we can get the views of the JD members in this forum. This was my post in part:

Every time I bought a Star Wars action figure since the Power of the Force "Commtalk chips" came out in 1999, I looked on the back and saw "Jedi Master Points". This magical statement was written on top of the proof of purchase bar code until the end of the Episode 1 line, and was to hopefully signify good things to come.

Nothing happened.

Then came the Star Wars Saga/Episode 2 series and they changed the name on the proof of purchase to "Hasbro Points". Since then I have continued to wait patiently for good things to come.

Still waiting...

When I was a kid, collecting wasn't an issue. I would get my Kenner Star Wars action figures, rip them from their packages and send my handful of those proofs of purchase away for my free Admiral Ackbar, Nien Nunb or whatever the offer at the time happened to be.

Seeing the Jedi Master Points from Hasbro had me feeling like that little kid again, but with a twist. This time I had money. I would buy one for a keepsake, another to have loose and send the proofs of purchase in for Hasbro's big deal.

But lately, my enthusiasm has started to fade. I e-mailed their customer service department last weekend, writing:

"Hello, I require information on Hasbro 'Jedi Master Points' relating to all Star Wars products. Myself, all others in my group and those on other web sites are wanting information on when these points will be activated for something.

I don't necessarily want to keep all my packages or cut them up for a "someday maybe" moment that might never happen. I do have a million of these things and would deeply like to use them for something.

I live in Canada and would have liked to see them used for the 25th Silver Anniversary R2-D2. Then I could have picked one up without spending $10.00 USD from an eBay scalper + shipping + handling + customs and taxes. In comic shops up here in Quebec, they are selling for as much as $80.00 Canadian. For a supposedly free item there are people selling these on ebay by the box!

I would appreciate some news as soon as possible so I can have some information to write on a couple of web sites on April 4th. I do love the toys and Hasbro makes a quality product, but if there isn't going to be a use for Hasbro points are you going to stop making them? "

I would like to hear everyone's opinion regarding this subject. State why you feel we deserve something and what you feel the points should be used for. At the bottom of your reply write in the total number of points you've accumulated.

Today is the day I found JD! Nice place you have here. ;)

I've only been collecting for a year now and it started to get ridiculous so I've put it on hold for a bit. I have all but 1 vintage fig loose up to ROTJ, almost all of Ep. 1 moc, 10 vintage Millenium Falcons (yes 10) and more or less any POTF2 and Saga figs that strike my fancy. Of course I have a bunch of other vintage ships and trinkets but too many to mention.

When I figure it out I'd like to post my collection photos (mildly outdated but good pictures).

My collecting goal is to get one of  EVERY R2-D2 package variation that ever came out as well as one of every loose one. As of June 07/03 I have 32 different package variations with no end in site. There are alot more then you might think. :-\

JD looks like a nice site and I'll be browsing around it for a long time to come. ;D
