Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Sick of scalpers
« on: January 2, 2004, 06:49 PM »
Tho, true scalpers suck.  Alot of people are named scalpers when they are not.  I do agree that if your selling or trading on the message board,  don't try and get a bidding war going because it does not belong...  take it to E-bay.  I do E-bay as well as trade,  alot of it is done to help my own collection.  Hehe, please keep our message boards clean of bid wars.  Not needed, or wanted.  :P

No one will ever be able to top Gene Wilder's performance as Willy Wonka...ever.  

I have to agree,  I loved Gene Wilder's performance.  But it would be intresting to see it.  I always loved the story.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: BE CAREFUL (Please Read about Super Clone)!!!

Well I have noticed that the legs are getting loose on one of mine that I have been playing around with,  So... just to confirm yes your correct the kneeling postion could damage the figure Be Careful guys.  This is still my Fav. Figure but as alot of people have stated it would of been nicer if they had added the Ball joints in the upper legs.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Vintage Style Figures from Hasbro???
« on: December 15, 2003, 11:33 PM »
Well, I love my Vintage... but on the other hand for the most part I love my New ones too.  If they make figures that should of been  made that never where in the OT then that maybe cool.  But as for as makeing re-issues of Figures that have already been made I am againt it.  I was really upset when they did that to MOTU, kinda made me feel like nothing is sacred and to this day I still see those MOTU Figures Hanging in Wal-marts and Toys R Us and everytime I turn around I see differant ones showing up.  Then I look at the ones I have and they are a copy of the Vintage in almost everyway.

It wasn't directed at you Valtar at all...it was like Jesse said.  A backlash at the "modern collectors" don't belong in the Vintage section posting about modern reporductions of modern figures

Got ya, OCB.   As for that, if they do happen to make these... I dont know if they would belong in the Vintage area or Modern,  they may need a new area just for them.   If you think about it they would only be done in vintage style they would still not be Vintage.  But still, I agree with everyone who has said it will be intresting to see where all of this goes.

I only pray that Hasbro does not try and ruin our Vintage Line with a bunch of repros. Thats my Main concern.

Well, I collect all the lines but I mostly collect Loose Figures as the Vintage line goes the main reason I posted this remark at RS :

If this is true... I hope it's not but if it is, bet your *** I will be sending Hasbro a letter Cursing them.

Its not Right what they did to MOTU and if they do it to the Vintage Line I think I will Quit collectiong SW toys.

Is because I don't want to buy a Figure on E-bay thinking it is a Vintage and get it in the mail look it over and it be a new one...  And yes I can see people doing this as I have also alot of sellers have a statment in there auction saying ALL SALES FINAL and then you just get ripped.  Ok befor anyone gets offended Im a seller as well as a buyer.  I just forsee alot of none collecters comeing out of the woodwork and try and pull one over on the collecting community.

Personally, I'm a bit peeved at the snobbish attitude displayed by "vintage" collectors

My comments probley may not of been the proper thing to say,  but as a Loose collector on Vintage Items this concerns me.  I don't want to be had by someone with a brite idea on E-bay.  I'm sorry that OCB you feel that Vintage collectors are being snobbish about it,  Im sure everyone whom said something has there own reasons... Maybe you and others will understand why I feel the way I do now.  I don't say those things to be snobbish,  I say it for the future of Vintage collecting, and Im sorry if you or anyone else found my View as wrong it's just how I feel about it.   :-\
