Kubricks / Re: New Star Wars Kubricks...
« on: April 21, 2003, 10:38 PM »
OH that's the last thing I needed to see, a Vader Kubrick.  Greeeeeeat.  Add to that the stormtrooper (mislabelled as a clone trooper) and biker scout, whee, so much for saving any money at all.  Wouldn't that sweet ANH set look good with the cinema scene.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Jorg Sacul AFA u 100
« on: April 21, 2003, 10:29 PM »
AFA is a waste of time.  For figures, for comics, for anything.  If you are really THAT concerned to pay those obscene prices, you're not a collector, you're a lunatic.  

Tell ya what.  I've got a minty, minty, absolutely freaking minty copy of Spiderman 300.  No creases, bends, fingerprints.  Colours are great, bagged and boarded from the time it hit the comic store.  What do you think I could sell it for if I dropped it on ebay?  $25?  Now, if I drop the cash to send it to get graded?  Lessee, $25 (last I checked) to get it done, plus the insured shipping in extremely protective shipping case at least another $25.  Let's say it's AFA 10, how much will it sell for?  $100s of dollars.  Why?  Cuz somebody says so?  Sure, ok, it's a consistent standard and takes the risk out, but what is the point?  Why bother?  The bottom falls out on collectibles all the time. Cards, comics, star wars figures (hey, anybody want to buy a mint orange US carded Ben Kenobi full body shot for $30 US? ::))

It's pretty laughable watching the McFarlane crowd.  These guys believe these things will only ever increase in value.  That's not to say I haven't paid ebay like prices for a couple of things, but I am not under the illusion I can fund my kids education off these things either.  I just wanted it bad enough to pay that much (hello, vintage collectors, can you relate?).  

I still believe if you are collecting for future value, you're collecting for the wrong reason.  No, I don't open everything I have, but it's just my opinion.

So are the tins the bootleg versions, or are they the regular?  All the ebay auctions appear to be without tins.

Just wondering ;)

Episode 1 / Re: What's your favorite vehicle?
« on: April 20, 2003, 11:21 PM »
I have serious issues with Episode I, it's becoming ever more clear to me.  I own zero Ep I beasts, vehicles or playsets.  

The movie wasn't that bad, was it?  Must discover origin of disturbance within my mind.......

Do you own any EP1 figures?

Yeah, basically all of them.  I might be missing a Naboo Royal Security, but I had one, just can't find it.  Have all the tough ones too.

That's what's weird about the whole thing.  I enjoyed the movie in the theater.  I like it on DVD.  Sure, Anakin is cloying and irritating, but I can get beyond that.  I loved the lightsaber battles.  The difference with those between the OT?  Wow.  Absolutely wow.  I wore out that section of the VHS tape.  

But...

I did not like the Gungans.  Boss Nass was eh, ok.  I loathe and despise Jar Jar (yeah, I have all the JJ figs).  Captain Tarpals was ok too, but in general, I disliked this aspect of the movie.  It was important to the overall scheme and the big battle was a visual specatacle but beyond that, I didn't find the subsequent vehicles to be of much interest.

Queen's starship was cool.  But I missed it originally and on clearance and it just costs too much to get it up here (plus I have the droid anyway).  I like Maul's speeder.  Beyond that, not much interested me.

I traded away both of my Gungan Sub's with Obi.  Never owned anything associated with the big battle and thought the space ships, for lack of a better term, sucked.  

I really don't know why.  I love the vehicles from the classic trilogy.  Weird, eh?

3 Canuckleheads not listing Neil Young  :'(

Go check my birthday wish to membraneman.  Surprised no one caught it there.

Neil Young is fine, but not really the type of music I typically listen to.  I had the (mis)fortune of seeing him once in concert.  Everyone was expecting the classic stuff and he predominantly played stuff from his then new country album.  No Cinnamon Girl, no Southern Man.  It's his show, but I won't say I wasn't dissappointed.

Mmm, Sleeman honey brown ale.  Now in cans (sort of blasphemous, but cool none the less for sitting around the pool).
