These showed up at a TRU near me this fine day for $4.99 hanging on pegs with every other figure I guess.  They're on their way.  Yay!  

*sigh*  These things are boring...  Oh well.  A complete set of silver figures, I think, will be sort of neat.

GH's report said it seemed like a lot...  

Still, I've yet to see Yavin wave here and I know they've hit this area but got picked up fast.  I figured that wave would fly off pegs, but yeesh...  This even surprised me.

Why is it that "GAME...  BLOUSES" Came to my mind immediately after this picture too?

There's a special paper for inkjet actually, and a "sealant" you buy that you should spray on with an airbrush, but you can thin it and brush it on too.  Looks real top-notch actually.

Bare Metal Foil should sell it if I recall.

You know the water-transfer decal paper you get with like a model car or whatever?

They make that paper and a solution that you can spray on it to waterproof the final decals.  It's MUCH better than stickers.  Very cool stuff...  It'll look like a Hasbro piece when you're done.

I'm waiting to see what my SW Minis Battles say about scale...  If they match up well enough to the WEG miniatures, then I'd pick them up...  If they're out of whack, I'm passing unless I see some I like.  

So far, they look nicely sculpted and all but this is an instance where the vintage are more special to me, and these are just good filler for minis battles if they fit in the right scale and all.

I'm hearing one version of every character, so every soldier is in that one pose.  I love the Scout, but the stormie and Fleet Trooper are "eh".  

I'll take my dozen Fleet Troopers from WEG over that one any day.   :-\

Damn you kids and your love of things that don't work right.   :P

That happened to the Pens all the time like early 1990's...  93 especially, they'd show a graphic, then boom it backfired on the Pens and they'd screw up whatever record they were going for.

I remember Lange and Steigerwald at the time actually knocking on wood and things so it wouldn't happen but it always did.  They'd even laugh at how often it occurred a few times.

Vator...  You win, I only ask that you pimp Super Articulation...  Tell them!  

Avenge me...  Avennnnnnngggeeee MEEEEEE!!!!

Pens have been kicking ass of late...  

Why'd they wait?  WTF?   >:(

Whooped up on the caps tonight, which isn't saying a lot since they're being predicted already as the worst team next season...  Finally someone to pound on!  :)  Oh wait, we always pounded on them before?  

I shouldn't speak too soonn actually, we have a few games with them left this year...  It's just nice actually to win some for a while.  I think we're 4-1 in our last 5...  That, for the dead last team in the league (or they were last I checked) isn't too shabby.   :o

Hey Jim,

My mom's my best friend in the world, and I am so sorry for your loss.  I can't imagine what you're going through, just that I know we all support you in any way we possibly can bud.

Take care, and we're here for you.

I'd like to say first I appreciate you guys chiming in...  Especially chiming in, in a very civil manner.

At Rebelscum, ultimately, I think the vast majority agreed with the focal point of the post and points I made...  

Not to b!tch about scalpers, but rather to point out that scalpers "in our midst" who admit to their actions (but still yet somehow attempt to deny the phrase scalper applying to them) aren't wanted...  That we, as a community, have a right to show some negative appreciation for these douchebags.

Are they there?  Sure are...  Do we have to like them?  No we don't...  Do we have to accept them in our communites?  HELL NO!  I wish people were just more vocal to the young lady I had a disagreement with about her activities selling figures she bought at the store that week to hock on Ebay.  Oh well, complacency will be what kills the line anyway, so I guess it's just shocking to see it now.

As for the card thing...

I'm happy to have seen you post Dave.  Because I know you know what you're talking about from the artist perspective on things, and I thought perhaps those responses would register with her.

She disliked me from the start...  She jumped on CorranHorn at least a couple times because she felt some heat from him though he was civil from start to finish.  Gee, awfully defensive huh?  Oh well.

MisterPL, I loosely quoted your opinion on the legality of selling customs...  I wanted to show that someone with experience here has some pretty valid words to say.  

Speedermike, I'd have loved for you to step in with the Insider story, but I want you guys to know something.

I wouldn't fault ANY of you for not getting involved.  I was happy to just see Jediraven (though the guy's harsh and blunter than I ever am!), CorranHorn, and Dave hop in there.  

I don't think any of you wanted involved in the pages of debate...  I was just saying to Jason in FFURG Chat about how I only debate like that because I have the time.  Love to sneak it in while watching TV, talking on the phone, and even talking to Jason in chat.   :P  I got skillz!  hah


I thank everyone for the support.  THere were like 2, maybe 3 guys at Scum who didn't strike me as posting like they even got 50% of the point I was trying to make...  While 100% get it here, I guess I shouldn't expect 100% at Scum...  Especially considering one of the guys was brand-spankin'-new to Scum and had the simply impressive business lesson to deal out of "Hey JesseJames, it's JUST GOOD BUSINESS".

Absolutely brilliant.  Yes, scalping Star Wars figures is the epitome of a top-notch economic, financial, and entrepreneurial mastermind.  F all these years of school, I learned everything I needed to know about business from "Tick Tock" in the scalper thread at Rebelscum.  :)

I wonder if he prints diplomas for these lessons?  

"Buy low!  Sell High!"

Wow, that guy has to run a fortune 500 with those kinds of words of wisdom.  :)

Again though, thanks for not going "Ugh, just another scalper's suck" thread guys.  I liked to see everyone who came in and said something here, or if you voiced a brief opinion at Scum.  

It's appreciated that I wasn't talking to myself on that one like I thought I might've been for a moment.

Hey IOC, nice to see you across the street here from GH...  Always nice to see familiar faces show up and say hey.

That is my point on Selling them too HMI.

One guy sees a profit froms elling his one-offs, then starts making repro weaons...  Then knock-offs, or repro cards for vintage trying to dupe somebody, and then making bootleg prototypes like Missle Firing Fetts.

I remember one day, you never saw that figure, then another day 90 of them appear...  Odd that there were that many unpainted Rocket Firing Fetts suddenly to flood the market, ya know?

That's my gripe against selling customs in a nutshell.  It's like the argument that marijuana use leads to more harmful drugs.  Custom sales leads to more unscrupulous sales of "customs" and passing things off as the real deal if you can.

Mel Brooks is a good one...  Never would've thought of him.

Martin Short's a very unfunny person.  Was he ever though?

And Steve Martin could be tacked onto that, but he was funny in that movie he made  with Eddie Murphy.  Actually Eddie Murphy wasn't bad in that come to think of it...

Bowfinger it was maybe?

Rosie O'Donnel was funny at one time.  She's just scary now.

I'd say the CURRENT cast of SNL but they sucked from the start.
