Sorry if it's in the wrong forum, it applies to all lines and eras.  

With a new movie coming out, I'm curious as to what will happen to the value of toys in the short term?  No, I'm not speculating, just curious, I collect and open my toys for the most part, so I've killed any true residual value in most of them anyway.  

But I am curious what people think will happen to the various lines/eras of the toys.  I don't think anything unusual will happen with OTC stuff, being a new release.  Those that are impatient will always be as such and pay too much, but after the dust settles and lots of stock is out there, most of it should be pretty easy to come by.  

With respect to VOTC, I'm not clear what should or will happen.  Hasbro has of course stated that this will be an extremely limited line ::).  The question remains as to the veracity of that statement, but I suppose we'll see.  I think this line has potential for value, due to the quality of the figures and the nifty card backs.  

With respect to everything else modern; POTF2 through Saga is where I am really curious.  My tenure on star wars boards started in earnest just before the release of Episode II.  I had been reading snowtroopers, CSW and RS for years, but never participated.  I didn't pay too much attention to pricing for stuff prior to Ep II but noted that the prices for most things, figure wise anyway, started to drop within about 9 months of Ep II.  Prices sat high during the in-theater rush of Star Wars enthusiasm and has been steadily dropping since.  Does anyone think we will see the prices of common stuff eg. POTF2 mail aways increase in price or has the market set itself and interest dwindled sufficiently to stabilize the price market??  I was absolutely amazed to be able to buy lots of army builders off RS for about $2 or less per figure.  And not necessarily POTF2 stormies, these were Saga royal guards or even POTJ Coruscant Guards.  Do you think we'll see a glut of new fans in the short term, driving prices up followed by a precipitous crash, a la Ep II?  

Finally vintage figures?  I know Matt (Fish) has made the comment about values going up of recent.  Interestingly Dale and I noted just the opposite to some degree, with a bit of a dip in prices.  The value here is of particular interest to me as I try to finish up the vintage figures.  I've been at it for almost exactly a year and have about 25 or so to go.  On the positive side, I am about 1/2-2/3 through the last 17.  Some stubborn figures are left to get, though I managed to luck into an Amanaman of late.  So what say you?  Vintage value: up or down?  Short term or long term?

Watto's Junk Yard / How did Cloud City get my email addy?
« on: May 28, 2004, 11:10 PM »
Not complaining really, it's a neat site and their updates are interesting.  But I never signed up to receive it from them and I've never ordered anything there.  So how'd they get it?  Do note I am not accusing anyone of anything, it's just an odd curiosity to me. :) :-\

Power of the Force 2 / Mail Away A-wing Pilot?
« on: May 12, 2004, 02:59 PM »
Was there actually a mail away for an A-wing pilot?  

I came across an auction on ebay for one and I'd not known it existed.  The guy had it with a little white mailer, but that could easily have been extracted from any other mail away (Ben, Han Stormtrooper).  Does this really exist ???

Vintage Kenner / Tell me about trilogo carded figures please?
« on: April 30, 2004, 12:20 AM »
In a moment of lunacy, last summer I purchased a trilogo carded biker scout.  A very, very nice piece when it arrived and to continue with the insanity, I started collecting (slowly, very slowly) trilogo carded figs.  

I'm curious about the relative rarity of them.  I seem to recall last year that there was quite an uproar over a number of auctions for trilogo carded figures with some pretty astronomical prices as ending bids.  Have I gone in waaaaaay over my head?  Is there some degree of commonness among some and more rarity among others?  

For example, on ebay right now, there are carded versions of 2-1B and FX-7 with $45 BIN prices.  Is this good, or not good?

Enlighten me please.

Modern Trading / Anyone need a J'quille or two?
« on: April 28, 2004, 01:27 PM »
or holy crap, do I have a lot of junk around here.  The people at my office always accuse me of running a toy store out of my office.  I've finally come to the realization they are correct. :-[

The rules:
1. I'm in Canada.
2. I'll tell you the condition of anything before I send it.
3. Where possible, I've indicated US versus trilogo, etc.
4. Who cares about rules?

« on: April 6, 2004, 12:19 AM »
Anyone collect these stupid little items?  I just bought four on ebay to go with the Tie Fighter and Sith Infiltrator I already own.  

I picked up the Death Star, Millenium Falcon, X-wing and Destroyer tonight.  I think I overpaid, but I don't see them often on ebay and all four from a single seller.  

I'll find some pics, but is anyone else quite so loony?

Modern Trading / Anybody need a doombot?
« on: March 24, 2004, 05:22 PM »
I have two (well, three including my own).  They are both bilingual/bilogo (french and english).  One is with the poster (more common to Canuckada) the other is with the comic (like the US version).  

I have no doubt we could come to an agreement, I collect too much crap.  I'd love a red skull but that might be setting my expectations too high.  LMK if you need it and we'll chat. ;)

Watto's Junk Yard / Are you a Hitchcock fan?
« on: March 21, 2004, 12:43 PM »
I always have been but seem to be getting into it more and more of late.  Stayed up last night to watch Frenzy and was moderately impressed.  It's been said before but Hitchcock was so far ahead of the curve in scaring/shocking people, but for the most part, without gore.  Frenzy is another good example of this.  

I expect most people have seen his more common movies (Vertigo, Psycho, The Birds) but are there any fans that have other favorites that didn't achieve such notoriety?

I vividly remember watching Psycho for the first time in the campus bar during my first year of university.  Very old movie, even at that time, but still managed to scare a lot of the patrons in the bar.  We mostly laughed.  Twisted 18 year olds, I suppose. :-\

Hmm, get to start a new one.

Jeremy was kind enough to help me out with a Tour Animal for cost and shipping only.  A far, far better deal than I could find anywhere else, so thank you kindly.

Shipping was super quick and it was packed very, very well arriving in perfect condition.
