The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Best X-wing?
« on: March 31, 2009, 12:51 AM »
What's your favorite X-wing? 

As I continue to assemble my room and cull my collection, I think I may have room for some vehicles.  I know I'm keeping the shuttle and quite likely the AT-AT, but beyond that I'm not sure.  I'd like to keep some Ties but we'll see about that.  Bomber would be first, followed by Interceptor. 

Where I'm stuck is the X-wing.  I think I asked this before, but couldn't find the thread.  I don't have them all, but I do have the original POTF2 with electronics, Red Leader's and a couple of other Luke ships, but not the Dagobah (by the time it rolled around, I knew I was done with larger ships).  So, do you have a favorite and if so, why?

Modern Classifieds / Clone Wars ACME Character Keys for sale
« on: December 30, 2008, 03:12 PM »
Hey gang, I've decided to not bother trying to finish out the Clone Wars series of the character keys.  So I'm going to sell off what I've got left over for either retail, below retail or what I paid for them on the secondary market (ARC/Padme/Sidious). 

Asajj Ventress 0453/1250 $25
Count Dooku 0060/1250 $25
Anakin Skywalker 0788/1000 $25
Durge 0633/1000 $20
Kit Fisto 0074/1250 $25
Arc Captain 696/750 $60
Padme Amidala 448/750 $55
Darth Sidious 428/500 $70

also have a spare Sandtrooper key for $30 - 0254/1000

PM me here if interested.  Shipping should be fairly reasonable I'd think given their size. 

Other Collectibles / Is Gentle Giant in its death throes?
« on: November 24, 2008, 04:33 PM »
Just wondering, but it is seeming to me that their product is suddenly very, very cold.  The older, mostly limited stuff still holds some value on the secondary market, notably the AOTC busts, but not much else.  Most collectors seem to have figured out that just waiting a bit means that you can get anything newer at 25% off MSRP at a minimum and often 50% or better.  Not much is selling for retail and that just can't be good.  If the retailers cannot make any money on it, then they likely are not going to carry the product going forward.  I'm not a fan of some of the price points, but these aren't Hasbro plastic products either.

Animated maquettes run greater than 25% off. 

Bustups are pretty much dead period.

Mini-busts are not really selling all that well.  The Galactic Marine PGM offering is still not sold out, so the PGM really isn't that big anymore.  There seems to be some horrible information on various collecting boards and I'm not sure if that's intentional by GG or whether collectors are just not paying attention.  Over at Scum there was much talk of a very limited run of the Galactic marine with only 300 being offered to PGM members.  Well, turns out the edition size is 3000 and they maybe sold only 1000 at the event in England.  Much ado about nothing would accurately describe collector panic on this one.  Same too for the Airborne trooper with an identical edition size of 3000.  Sold out quick at, but pops up every so often (anyone need one, I have three on order ::)) and four hours after going up on the PGM offering is still available (as is the Marine that went up Friday :o).

At least the animated maquettes are sort of selling well, though lots are pretty cheap secondarily as well. 

The classics busts were an unmitigated failure.

The Customz I don't know how they did, but I gotta guess they weren't much better than the busts if at all. 

Statues are selling at 50% off their MSRP on the secondary market, if that in many cases. 

I know this place is pretty dead with respect to GG (and there is a similar sidebar to a thread at Scum) but I'm curious what people here think the future holds for them?   I'm looking forward to a number of products that are still to come out in the future, but I have to confess I really wonder if those products are going to make it to market.  Tie Pilot bust, Snowtrooper bust, Obi animated maquette are all on my 'want' list and I'll buy them.  But will they make it out?  What do you think?

Watto's Junk Yard / 'Lectric shave!
« on: November 15, 2008, 08:33 PM »
Yeah, lame title.

My old Phillishave rotary has died, so I'm looking for a new razor.  I usually use blades but sometimes I'm in a hurry, so I keep an electric at work.  The Phillishave with rotary heads was ok, but still better than the old Braun microfoil I used to have.  Looking to upgrade to a nice razor at Christmas that won't leave my neck looking like hamburger.  Any recommendations?

Brent -

Just like that you have nearly all the pieces for Red Hulk now.

Uh-huh, pretty cool. 
HULK PIECES for Brenty:
Wolverine - Ryan
Spiral -Ryan (you can keep this or give it to someone else, I'll be buying her anyway)
Adam Warlock - Mikey
Union Jack - Mikey
Shadow  ;) Spiderman - Justin
Silver Savage - Brent

Anybody buying a Silver Savage figure :P  Or does anyone want a Silver Savage figure?  Ryan or Mikey?  I'll buy the figure for the piece and you can keep the figure?

Anyone still interested in sharing pieces?  :)

I think I just want to find a Spiral, somehow, some way and be done with it.

Modern Trading / Lots to trade or sell
« on: August 14, 2008, 02:32 PM »
First, for those that don't know, I'm in Canada.  If that matters, so be it. 

Second, I'll sell anything on the list instead of trading.  Pretty much all would be at or below original retail so no scalping here.  If you buy, you pay shipping. 

Third, if card condition matters, ask first please.  I'll do my best to indicate if anything is less than mint when you ask.  No scamming on condition here.  Shipping stuff loose makes it easier/cheaper to ship for me and ergo for you.  Cards will be Canadian cardbacks unless denoted as US.

I'll add/modify the list as we go along:

Watto's Junk Yard / Problems shipping to Canada?
« on: June 2, 2008, 04:42 PM »
This thread feels way familiar, so I'm sorry if I started it once before years ago (but the search engine still sucks). 

I'm very curious what kind of problems guys have with shipping stuff to Canada?  I see this a lot on various boards and certainly on ebay, to the point where US sellers have even blocked me from bidding because I reside in Canada (yet have a US address for delivery through a friend).  I'm certainly aware of some horrendous delays in stuff getting here, thanks to our craptastic system but in all my dealings I've never actually had anything go missing going from here to south and only had some dubious incidents of things going missing from there to here (can you say scammed, yeah, me too). 

So what are the huge hassles?  Are they real, or are there a bunch of Canadian scam artists ruining it for the rest of us?  I know of a couple of guys that have done that in the past but I also know of guys in the US scamming as well.  Lack of tracking?  What gives, why you hate on Canada mon? 

Well of the Souls / Indiana Jones Peg Warmers?
« on: May 29, 2008, 04:38 PM »
Yeah, it's early, but I like starting these. 

I hadn't seen all that much lying around for tremendous periods of time but when I went out today, I was sort of amazed to see one thing at each and every store and each store had lots of them too:

Deluxe Indiana Jones and Ark. 

Honestly, I thought this would be a top seller because it's a good Indy figure with a pretty much madatory accessory to collect.  Can't not have the Ark or this version of Indy because they were both in the vintage line.  And the Indy figure is one of the best facial paint jobs I've come across consistently. 

Aside from that there's no shortage of vehicles up here either and lots of both versions of Mutt to be found.

Well of the Souls / Sideshow Premium Format Indy
« on: April 9, 2008, 03:08 PM »
Looks like the premium format is confirmed (maybe it was before, I'm not so much for the details in advance).  Sideshow still has the teaser photo up but cooltoyreview has got a picture of the full statue up here.

I'd been really hoping for the iconic pose from the streets of cairo with the gun in one hand, whip in the other.  This is nice and I like that they worked the idol into it (I thought it would be included with the exclusive version instead) but the pose is kinda blase and doesn't seem nearly as iconic as it could have been.  It's just sorta there.  I mean I really don't recall Indy standing still with the idol in his hand, so a static pose like this just doesn't seem relevant. 

I'm not sure if I'll opt in on this piece or not.   :-\
