Nothing distribution wise seems to work for anyone.

Do you mean people or retailers?  The Wave 4 case sure seems like it will work well, whenever it bothers to get here.

I haven't watched the ship dates very closely, but it feels like those are always off.  Anyone track these on a regular basis?

Modern Classifieds / Selling: Bravestar & Visionaries Figures
« on: June 12, 2014, 06:22 PM »
My neighbor grabbed these out of storage after 20 years and wants to sell them off.  Anyone have an interest in them or have any idea what they might be worth?  They're almost all sealed, including the big playset.  Never opened.  I only took one picture of the Visionaries figures, but he has 11 of them all still sealed.

Any interest/help would be much appreciated.  He's not looking to make a fortune on them, so if you're interested I'm sure I can get you a deal.  Thanks for looking...

I bought one online for $25 and another at B&N for $25.  I also traded a vintage Stormtrooper carded for the SDCC version.  So I will be super excited to see them quickly clearanced everywhere for $10 each.  I love that they included him again as 1x in future shipments, but 3x in later cases is definitely overkill.

Wave 5 Up for Pre-Order at EE

2x Darth Vader (Episode III)
2x Luke Skywalker (Jedi Training on Dagobah)
2x Yoda (Jedi Training on Dagobah)
2x Wedge Antilles (Hoth Pilot)
1x Snowtrooper Commander
1x Toryn Farr
1x Ree-Yees
1x Jabba's Skiff Guard Sgt. Doallyn

So, the wave 4 case includes 2x of all new figures (see below).  They follow this up with 2x new Wedge, 1x new Ree-Yees, and 1x Doallyn?  Is the Vader at least new?  Someone please give me some logical rationale as to why we're getting 4 Yodas and 4 Lukes across two cases, but only one each of all new characters.   >:( That makes no sense>:(   Are these guys less desired than Toryn Farr who appears in both cases? Could they at least double up on the Snowtrooper instead of Yoda?  Unbelievable.  I swear they are purposely tanking this year to make next year's sales look even stronger.

Wave 4 Assortment for Reference...
2x Luke Skywalker (Jedi Training on Dagobah)
2x Yoda (Jedi Training on Dagobah)
2x Snowtrooper Commander
2x Toryn Farr
2x Bastilla Shan
2x Dak Ralter

Harrison Ford hurt his ankle...

As long as none of these guys break a hip I suppose.

He had to go to the hospital?  That should be a good story.  Guessing it's more precautionary than serious injury, but yeah, these guys are getting up there in age.  Unlike the rest of us.   ;)

12" Figures / Re: Disney Exclusive 12" Electronic Figures

Was tempted for about a minute on the Stormtrooper last weekend while at the MOA. But the $30 made it any easy pass in the end.

I picked one up a few weeks back.  I was really on the fence at that price point, but the sound is great and the trooper at least feels like he fits better with my other 12" figs.  So almost the same experience as you, except you still have $30 in your wallet.   :-\

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The "Space" Issue
« on: June 11, 2014, 04:00 PM »
I was in a pretty good place at the point they shut down the Clone Wars line, I had just enough space to house a complete carded/boxed collection. And after that the SW stuff I was still getting were just random one-offs here and there. Then I decided to jump in on the 6" line and figured I would at least open these to conserve some space. Ok, no problem.

But with the announcement of the new Rebels line, I may be screwed. That's going to be another one where I will get everything MOC/MISB. If this goes a couple of years it will present some real challenges. Something will have to go.  :(

+1 ...definitely feeling your concerns there McMetal

That's crazy.  If each figure averted $100, you still wouldn't be at half the asking price.  And for most people, buying a huge lot is less enticing than just buying up the specific figures you want.  Nice collection, but totally unrealistic price.

I ended up moving to a bigger house for a variety of reasons.  It has a larger space than my old house, but I don't want to jusr cram everything in like I did before. I'm trying a strategy where I've allocated certain shelves for a type of product like 12" figures.  If I get something new, it needs to fit in that space, likely replacing something else that will then get sold off or donated.  We'll see how that goes.  The majority of my stuff is still boxed up from the move.

Is anyone else a big fan of these characters?  The whole Daredevil/Powerman/Iron Fist/Jewel lineup seems really boring to me.  The comics generally have these guys in some offshoot of the Avengers and I just can't get into any of the characters.

Careful guys - JediJman is gonna come down on you for not believing the "dog ate my homework excuse" - it's exactly because of buyers like you guys who don't believe that dogs can eat homework that he left being an eBay seller.  ;)

WOW.  Are you really still butt hurt from getting called out over a week ago?  Gotta say, I'm a little freaked out that I've been on your mind all this time. 

So let's just move on for the sake of this thread.

Right.  ;)

I've been doing PayPal stuff all week with no problems either.

What has more likely happened is that they have frozen his account for some reason and he is unable to send or accept payments. That happened to me a few months back when there was a concern about overseas fraud. (Thankfully I was not victimized and the hold was lifted after a week or two)

That doesn't explain why he isn't responding to emails.

I bet Han has to go into the sealed Hyperdrive chamber where he will get a lethal does of radiation, but Luke uses his force powers to capture Han's essence into a Jedi ghost before flying the Falcon through a gas cluster and destroying Kaaaahhhhhn.
