Collections / My collection has been stolen
« on: December 28, 2014, 10:37 AM »
My collection has been stolen. In November, I moved from PA back home to TX. My "friend" and I had a long-standing agreement that I would send money each month to pay for shipping my collection, as well as extra money for gas. On Christmas Day, I discovered, to my horror, that he had begun selling my toys on December 9th. I politely called and texted, with no reply. I had already sent him the first payment for shipping, so I opened a case on PayPal about that. This makes the second time that 99% of what I own has been stolen from me. His eBay ID is frazeta1, so if you buy a toy from him, you are contributing to theft and my misery. I will never be able to recover from this one.

I was looking forward Dr. Evazan but since I totally missed Walrus Man, what's the point...

I am really at the end of this...after collecting from 1977-1985 and from 1995 to the present...I just think I'm done...very, very down on this whole thing.

Totally agreed, speedermike.  My disgust with Hasbro and what Star Wars has become was gradual.  First, when I saw for myself that all three prequels were a joke, I unloaded every last item related to them and stuck with OT only.  Then, the price increases and lack of distribution got even worse.  So, I scaled back yet again, and unloaded more.  Now, my modern collection only consists of Boba Fett and Darth Vader items, and a few choice items that "wowed" me, like the Millennium Falcon, AT-AT, and figures that were finally gotten as right as they could be.  Even with everything so scaled back and not having a "gotta have it all" attitude, the lack of Hasbro product and price increases only say one loud and clear thing: Hasbro just doesn't care, and they haven't for years.  I would really like a Walrus Man, Slave Leia, Sandstorm Leia, and VC93 Vader.  But, I'm not holding my breath.  It truly is sad.

My complaints about this figure are the same as everyone else, that's for sure!  While VC93 Vader is my priority (which also needs to be fixed by putting the Commtech Vader cape on, and what, no saber hilt??), I will probably pick a Luke up if I see him, and he will be seated on his Tauntaun.  The only way he looks decent.  You'd think at this stage in the game, Hasbro would be better about making sure the MAIN CHARACTERS at least have been given everything they got!

I snapped some shots of my Starspeeder and included a couple comparison shots of the Disney R2 next to the Hasbro one:

Mine finally arrived today.  I was worried that the shipping from California to New York was going to ruin it, but Disney actually packed it well with padding, and even included a shopping bag that my girlfriend likes.

There is good news and bad news on the Star Speeder 1000 front.

The good news is they are back in stock at Disneyland and elsewhere.

The bad news is they raised the price from $55 to $69.

WHAT???  You gotta be ****ing kidding me!

*Sigh*

I won't be able to get one of these until February.  By then, it will be gone.  :(

Thanks.

Wow, I can't wait to figure out a way to get one.  In the meantime, can you guys provide pics?  The undercarriage, the lights, perhaps YouTube clips?

10
Heh, I hope you're right.

11
It's Goofy...  That moron can't work the hold button.

Man, thanks for the laugh.  :)  I've been concerned that I'm not going to get this thing, but at least I cracked a smile for the first time in this thread.

call the number and order one?

877-560-6477

As I stated before, I won't have any funds until January.  This thing is so popular that it will likely be sold out by then, hence my original request for help.

13
Dammit.  I guess all I can do is hope that they are still around in January.  Nobody has contacted me, so I guess that's what I have to do.

14
Dammit.

15
Oh man!

I'm not going to have any money until January!  I hope this thing is still available then!  What if it's not though?  Dang....
