Saga '02-'04 / Re: New Army Builders?

I'll vote for the Imperials as well.  Multipose snowtroopers would be uber cool.  

Biker scouts would be a nice addition to my little Ewok barbeque diorama.  Bunch of biker scouts roasting Ewoks on a spit with the heat coming out of the back of the speeder bikes.  Removable helmet biker scouts would be very helpful for that ;) ;D

Thanks for the words TopJedi.  In time, I may begin.  So many other things of interest though (Kubricks, Master Replicas, back filling the Riddell helmets) and only so much cash ;)

You are however wrong about Ewoks.  Vile little things leaving fur everywhere, eating cats.  Terrible house guests they are.  All Ewoks must die.  Simple as that. ;D

What benefit would it have if you did?  Would you get some satisfaction out of it?  Would there be a point other than you can?  

The deal is that Philip is responsible for the site and as such, legally responsible for the content.  I do not agree with lots of what RS is doing right now, but the content that may be deemed offensive, whether you think so or not, is Philip's responsibility.  That the words "Japs" and "Nazis" are deemed contextually offensive or a liability risk is not at all unusual.  Is it correct?  Nope, not necessarily, but hey, run your own site, make your own rules.  When the Japanese veterans society lawyer sends you a letter regarding the "harmful content" of your site, you can take the risk associated with your decision.  Similarly when the Jewish community gets up in arms (or the non-Nazi German community is offended) you can bear the brunt of their anger.  

Are those events happening?  Nope, I seriously doubt it, but in the litigenous US they easily could.  The point is not what you find offensive, it's what the site owner finds offensive.  Try the same stunts at boards you remain fond of and see how long your behaviour is tolerated.  

That said, I'm not much of a fan of RS and haven't been for quite a while.  It's been far too juvenile for this old man for too long.  It's sad, but I've never seen the point of pouring gasoline on an open flame.

Vintage bad, tree pretty.  Oh, sorry, Buffy-ism there.  

No to vintage, at least not yet.  I'm sort of hanging around stalking the forum but really know diddly squat about the fits.  Some I genuinely don't like, but since I broke my completionist ways, that's not such a big problem.  My main worry is simply getting taken on ebay.  Given that ebay functions on a competitive basis, I'm not likely to be able to score any superb bargains.  Oh well, perhaps in time.  I suspect I would never own a vintage Ewok though. ;)

Other Collectibles / Re: Installment Plan at Master Replicas

Cool!!!  Now I won't have to sell my bodily fluids to afford one!!! ;D :D ;)

Be happy you can, I have to give mine for free ;)

Hmm, installment plan eh?

I wanted to be Mara Jade when I joined CSW but it was taken so I went with her ship instead and I used it ever since because it was never taken anywhere else except (where I am LadyStar because she's a character I drew back when I was a little girl - think Storm/Catwomen and you know what she looks like as well as her super powers  :) ).

That sounds pretty cool for a character.  Send me some pics for my daughter ;)

Morgbug - Morg is taken from Borg, a mentality some of my fellow moderators and I were accused of having at a site I used to moderate at.  Moderator + Borg = Morg.  Bug is in relation to my career of choice (yes, I said choice) - entomologist, ergo, bug.

I won't even comment about Bob's age, because I was always told to treat your elders with respect.   ;)

Oh, puhlease ::)

Sorry, but there just aren't that many of them :P

"You can easly describe the taste of Ewok"

What are you looking at me for? ;D

And for that reason alone, Jersey MUST prevail.  Well, that and I'll feel fully justified starting a thread with all of Matt's quotes regarding the Ducks and the Lakers :-*

Dang, that's the predator I can't get my hands on.   >:(

I also want to get my wife a Matrix figure, but I haven't seen them up here yet.  Need to start slipping collectibles into her office to justify my own purchases ;), doncha know?

The McFarlane stuff is really amazing quality and detail.  Me like.

RS (tragic, really) eh?
Simpsonscollectorsector - but not a whole lot, just when I need to - the truly dark side

and a couple of science related sites, my other passion.  If you need to find me, I'm always Morgbug. ;D

I just feel so much better now.   ;D  Well, not as lonely anyway.  Last three things through the door were a case of figs (hey, I count it as 1), a Hobgoblin (which my daughter loves - so much for hiding it) and a Marvel Legends Magneto.  Heh. :-*

Heh, must be time for a post from the dark side.  Now, before y'all go gettin' your knickers in a knot, I trade fairly and by the given rules of whatever board happens to be the origin of the trade.  

No one here has responded with respect to McFarlane sportspicks.  Totally, absolutely different world.  The rules of value there are governed by ebay (price/value wise).  Like any other board, I'll help folks out and have had the same in return.  Largely, I am now trading with guys that I know from previous trades and we try to match up as best we can.  The most scandalous trade I made was a Saints Ricky Williams for 2 hockey variants :o  Anyone from the spawn board that hear's that trade thinks I'm nuts.  Whatever.  

I have also traded variant figs for multiple SW items.  Typically I ask for 3 SW figs for a single variant, so I am asking $15 for $10 worth of "value".  The catch is that is the way those boards work.  I have yet to sell anything on ebay.  

As far as chase figs like Doombot, no mask Wolverine or gold Ironman, hey, I'd buy two if I found them.  Dain Bramage and I have an agreement to trade them fairly to each other to help one another out.  If I found multiples, I'd grab them for other board members around here or elsewhere that I know.  That seems contrary to the philosophy of many around here.  I used to scoff at the thought of scalpers buying SW stuff around where I am.  Ebay isn't much of a market right now nor is there locally.  That was until I got into McFarlane stuff.  Hell, I know the scalpers by name and I'll be damned if I'd leave something for them to drag off to the local flea market.  Am I taking it away from a kid or other collector?  Yep, but they can find me on multiple boards and I'll help everyone out.  Can't do much about the kid, but no way a schoolkid is going to score a chase figure on a weekday.  Stocking at our stores is overnight or early am, so collectors and scalpers are out en masse early.
