Oh dear Carrie.  I'll need to get the bigger bubbles for that.  Snapping them little buggers just ain't as satisfying.  

Better to be bubble wrap man than TBM.  

Am I still allowed to post?  Only by the good graces of the lead admin, one would suspect.  Thanks Chris ;)  The cheque is in the mail (bubble wrapped, of course).

Dang, I forgot about the TBM thing.  Thanks for reminding me :D

Hey Matt, if you're moving soon, wanna buy some bubble wrap?

Testing, testing.  Is this thing on?  See you in a week :o

Hey now, I'm the Funniest Muskateer dag nabbit, so you better back off now!  Just ask chuckles (the Tallest Muskateer), he'll tell ya'!   :-*

Congrats again on your incredible bubble wrap score though...   ::)

Oh man, please don't shoot me with your Muskat dude.  I heard those things were dangerous.  As for the rest of the Musketeers, I have no doubt chuckles is the tallest, but aren't you the fattest Musketeer?  I thought we had proof of that? ;D

Are you going to send the Bubble Wrap to the AFA?  ;D

Well, most of the people here have a sense of humour at least.  Unlike some people that live out West.

;D :-*

Well, the comics were cool but the figs aren't really that interesting to me, but hey, if I can find trade bait, I'm all for it.  

Sorry but you needed to be slapped buddy.  Geez, guy finds red battle droids and blonde IO and still grumpy.  Lakers lose again or what? ;D

Again, if this irritates Matt by placement, all the better.  (I was going to send your cash out today, but feh, later).  

Four new x-men figs, articulated in a fashion similar to the Marvel Legends are out at Wally worlds in Canuckada.  Two Wolverines - 1 in uniform, 1 in leather jacket; cyclops and nightcrawler.  

Any rarities in this line?  chase pieces, etc.

maybe I'll start shipping stuff without bubble wrap, eh Matt?  slap a receipt or two in there as well ::)

Maybe the wrong forum, but somebody will move it if need be.  

I'd dearly love to show a picture of this beauty, but words will have to suffice.  Let's say it is a spectacular thing and quite a bargain.  Buying six of these separately would more than double the cost of buying it all together. Oh, you want to know what it is?  

A box with 150 feet of bubble wrap.  Pretty cool eh?   ;)

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Sarah Michelle Gellar.

I like her, but she could use about 18 cheeseburgers.  A day.  For a month.  

Early Buffy was pretty hot (though admitedly young) but she kept losing weight with each passing season.  Thank you, no, a little more beef please.  Cordelia was hotter, if not dumber.  Much better character in Angel.  Charisma Carpenter.  Yum.

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.

what would happen if we paid Scott to shave his head?

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.  


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?

Paige hot, cannot beat to watch entire show.  Sound turned down is better.  Must relinquish remote every now and then.  Mostly now AND then.

mmm, I wish I had red vines now.  Yum.
