Modern Classifieds / Box of #41 clones for sale
« on: October 31, 2006, 01:05 PM »
Box of 12 #41 clones for sale.  All are on ROTS card, some US cards, some Canadian cards.  Some cards could pass for display but none are mint.  I can open them up for you and ship loose too if you like. 

Asking $70 USD plus the shipping.  And if you don't know, I'm in Canada so shipping won't be as fast as it would be were I in the US.

30th Anniversary Collection / Anyone else losing interest?
« on: September 28, 2006, 02:11 PM »
I think there are other topics along this line, but as I poked my head into this particular topic area today, I realized I have hardly been looking at all at the Hasbro areas of the board.  So I thought I'd ask if this has been the case for anyone else of late? 

I still like the Hasbro figures and don't really intend to offload all of my figures as some other folks have done.  But I've already started reducing my armies and don't particularly feel a need to have five death star gunners or the like.  I find the new pictures of the figures with the coins interesting and some nicely done figures in that mix as well.  At the same time, my completionist ways have easily dwindled as I no longer care about a repaint of a new figure very much at all and something like a Mustafar lava miner holds little interest to me. 

Given most people in here are probably still pretty keen on this stuff, this might be the wrong place to ask, but I'm curious if anyone else is feeling this way at this point.  I just don't really look forward to finding 60-70 figures next year, much preferring to wait on my twice per year Kubricks, seeing what Gentle Giant has for me and then a few other items. 

What say you?

Unbelievable but the link on yahoo for fantasy football is up already :o  I'll commish the league if no one else wants in but I'd prefer to pass as I'll probably be doing multiple hockey leagues come fall time. 

Who's in?

Modern Trading / Looking for EU Dark Trooper, have HTF Ep I
« on: April 23, 2006, 09:36 PM »
I'm looking for a carded or loose, mint, complete EU Dark Trooper.  I plan on opening it anyway, so carded is sort of a waste, but I'll still happily take it.  I'm looking for the 3 3/4" version, not the mini, btw.

For trade I have the following, all MOMC, US versions:

R2-B1
Sio Bibble
Darth Sidious Holograph
TC-14 Protocol Droid
Jar Jar Binks Naboo Swamp ('swimming' Jar Jar)

If you don't know, I'm in Canada but it's not that expensive to ship up here anyway, a bubble envelope would be fine.  LMK if you're interested.

Saga Collection '06 / Anyone else think we'll see more pods?
« on: April 16, 2006, 12:49 AM »
Just wondering if anyone else out there has the feeling that we'll be getting some more packs of figures that come with the pods?  Though I've not seen one up close yet, I can't imagine them tooling something like that to only release in the one package. 

I can at least see a (bad) rehash that has Mas Amedda, Palpatine (disfigured) and perhaps a new Padme and a slightly modified Bail.  Boredom at the Senate or something like that. 

Any other ideas?

Watto's Junk Yard / When you think of Canada....
« on: March 22, 2006, 03:18 PM »
What comes to mind? 

Here's your chance to have a little fun, be nasty, whatever works for you.  I have a presentation to make next week in Bloomington to about 400 Yankees and want to have a little fun with it, so I can't think of a better way than reinforcing some cliches y'all might have about us.  Eh. 

Have at it.  Pics are helpful.

Time to start a new thread for 2006 or change the title back.

What's wrong with athletes these days?† I want a raise even though I suck.† And I like Culpepper, but someone ought to point out to him that the time to ask for a raise is when you exceed expectations, not fail to meet them. ::)

Modern Classifieds / Anyone here need a ship?
« on: December 10, 2005, 05:07 PM »
I've got a few I'm looking to unload.  They're loose but minty, just displayed and actually not too much dust on them.  Shipping's extra, of course.

POTF2 Tie - $10
POTF2 Falcon - $20

I can be convinced to trade, the Tie is no prob to ship, the Falcon I might ask to even out because it's so darn big.

Watto's Junk Yard / In the spirit of Christmas...
« on: December 1, 2005, 02:09 PM »
Since Matt has the secret Santa thread going, I thought I'd make a small suggestion. 

I know I have a lot of toys (dregs, if you will) that I can't trade or seemingly even sell below cost to anyone that are perfectly good and in the package.  I'd like to suggest that folks follow my lead and take them somewhere locally that can make use of them.  I'm sure most places have a big bin in a mall where you can drop off new, unwrapped toys for Christmas that end up going to folks that can't afford them.  My intent is to go through the stuff I have an unload what I can't make use of.  No sense in opening something only to throw it in a drawer or bin to never be seen again, especially when the option is you might make some kid's Christmas much more enjoyable. 

Just a thought.

Vintage Kenner / What causes fading/greying of figures in package?
« on: November 9, 2005, 10:42 PM »
Here's a Vader with the head faded I'm referring to.  I'm curious what causes this in such a specific and limited part of the figure.  I've seen it on numerous figures of late and mostly they seem to be on twelve backs or at least Star Wars carded figures.

Anyone out there help?

Other Collectibles / Star Wars mini-mates?
« on: November 8, 2005, 08:49 PM »
Ignore the delusional aspect of this auction but click on the bottom picture in the auction. 

Mini-mates Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade?   Yeah, I'm pretty sure they're customs as well, probably using a Jean Grey head for Mara, but they're reasonably well done.  Maybe some photoshopping for effect as well, no reason for the name plate to overrun the logo.

« on: October 18, 2005, 04:50 PM »
Now that the new Saga numbers are showing up it would be mighty helpful to have a numbered list stickied to the top for reference purposes.† Reasonable?

Since I have no grand love for the Ewoks, I'll finish them in due time, but no hurry. 

I've a few figures on trilogo cards and I do like them, but I worry about finishing that collection off. 

I picked up a boxed X-wing in very nice shape so I'm contemplating vehicles, but I want minty boxes as well.  I'd probably dump most of the modern vehicles to get there as well. 

Creatures are of interest, boxed as well. 

So, what would you proceed to chase down next?  Suggestions please, all are valid.
