Collector's Tips / Re: Cases for carded figures?
« on: January 19, 2016, 02:36 PM »
I'm getting ready to display one version of each card design created and was trying to figure out what sizes to buy.  Does anyone know of a guide that lists which "style" of case fits each card back?  I know there are "A", and "B", and "C", and so on styles.  Just trying to figure it all out and can't seem to match up the card backs with the cases.

I'm not aware of a guide by series if that's what you're looking for.  I think I went with all C's for my cases just because the bubble size can differ even within a series.  For example, you'll almost always get a smaller bubble with Leia vs. the Gamorean Guard.  I wanted the option to mix and match figures, and I think they look better with the same depth in each anyway.

Kubricks are awesome!  I miss collecting these, expensive as it was.  I like your display box for them.  I have a bunch of regular series and chase extras if you're interested.  I'll try to pull a list together in the next week or two.

Judith might be a much more effective tool to paint Negan as a monster than just about anything else.

I might have agreed with that except would everyone's apathy toward Judith make us not feel as strongly toward Negan being a monster if he killed her? I feel it wouldn't work.

I think they would have to take Negan very differently if he killed Judith, but I like the idea.  I think Rick could eventually reconcile in some way with other character deaths, but would be pretty impossible to let the guy that killed your baby daughter go on living.

I think they got stuck with what to do with her after deciding to have her survive the prison and now don't have any good ideas for how to get rid of her.  It's tough to spin zombies killing a baby into good TV for the general public, but I agree that she's pretty pointless to keep around.  Maybe there is some bigger design to have her play a role years down the road. 

In the comic, Judith and Lori get shot/killed in the prison battle with the governor and they don't really have any pregnancies to worry about after that.

I hope I'm not creating competition for someone who was already planning on bidding on this but zero bids so far so I'd rather see someone here get it:

Hoth Rebel Trooper for $150

Thanks for posting this.  I have one, but was tempted to get a second for my hoth display.  When it didn't sell, I PM'd him and we hashed out a deal for $130 shipped.   ;D

Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort?  Really?  Is early Han a Dejarik chess nerd?  Not overly excited about any of these, but Jack Reynor kind of has that look...

Thanks Paul for hooking me up with another Disney exclusive that I couldn't otherwise get outside of eBay.  Thanks for always helping out the JD community!


Not in my area...FO Stormtroopers are scarce.

Ditto.  That's the one that's always gone first in my experience.  Everyone wants multiple troops, but not so much of any of the other figures.  I'm planning to keep two Reys (mask on/mask off), but don't need multiples of anything else.

That's insane.  Real cool figure, but insane.

Got this for my 9yo son on XBox for Christmas.  He doesn't play other first person shooter games, but is pretty good with the remote from playing Disney Infinity, Minecraft, etc.  I'm not much of a gamer, but continuously get schooled whenever we play against each other.  I cannot seem to aim as quickly or memorize the map the way he has and most matchups it's not even close.  We have been playing the local co-op missions a little more and definitely having more fun partnering up than getting slaughtered by my kid.  We tried online for just a few minutes last night - I died in 60 seconds, but he was able to get a few kills in.  ::) #HowdIgetsoold

Nice win Cory. Congrats!

I think you hit on something there Dave with the bare minimum product idea.  I know that close to half the Wal-marts near me supposedly don't even have the Black Series figures in their Planogram.  Some local collectors have taken to buying up the leftovers from a participating store and dumping them off at non-participating stores to drive faster replenishment.  I never see an issue like that with Target or TRU, and there are 50ish Targets in the local metro versus maybe 10 Wal-marts.  Not offering up at least a minimum amount of product at each store kills shopper interest and minimizes their return for having an exclusive in the first place. 

Well said Nick.  I did the same thing with these.  Ended up trading some of my wave 3 with Indysolo for wave 2 figures he found.

I would be pretty suspicious if the figures were damaged in shipment.  Either a tank rolled over the box or he's trying to pull a fast one.  Did you look at his buyer history?  I wonder if there's any evidence of him doing something similar in the past.  It's probably not a bad idea to snap a picture of stuff as you box it up just as evidence, though I never remember to do that.

I've yet to see one in a Walgreens
