Vintage Kenner / Vintage Carded Figure Restoration

So my son went into my SW room last night to show the babysitter and this happened.

It's a signed POTF Vader, so not really something I can replace.  Luckily I bought it signed, so it doesn't have some amazing memory tied to it.  Any suggestions on what to do with it now?  I thought about just just taping it up, but not excited about how that will look.  I could open it, but I dont really display the cards ex figures or collect the loose coins.  I could try to sell it damaged, but not sure if it's worth anything at this point.  Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated in my time of mourning.

Looks like amazon now has 6" figures list at a "regular" price of $21.99.

Do you have a link?  Poe, Phasma, and Guavian are all showing up much higher than that...

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Scale Vehicles, A Fool's Dream?

The mid-size vehicles like a TIE or X-Wing are just too big for me given all the other Star Wars stuff I'm trying to display.  I'd love to see them go for more of the smaller scale stuff:

  • Landspeeder
  • Dewback
  • Cantina Booth (Full size, Plastic not cardboard)
  • Probe Droid
  • Imperial Troop Transport
  • Ewoks with a Glider or Catapult
  • Emperor's Throne
  • And all those smaller ships from the new movie, which are the most likely I suppose

The one big ticket item I might bite on would be a Sandcrawler with 6" scale Jawas.  I know it would be huge, but that's the one big vehicle I could see clearing out space to display and really forking over some big money for.

I think Jeff's point is that the printed source material in the link provided specifically calls out that item as "Available 11/15."  Obviously they are already in the inventory at a lot of stores and there will probably be some variation in when stores actually get them on the shelves, but I would trust the printed date of 11/15 over random red shirt guy if you're planning on a date to go look for these.

I nabbed a few of these at Target this morning using the DPCI mind trick.  No hassle getting them brought out, but the guy took the rest back to the stock room without even looking for a shelf location.  I think they are intended for some kind of upcoming display like Nick said - probably based on the Target Wish List items that were posted a few days ago.

Cool - thanks for the update Nick!

Revenge from the 60s < 2015 Marketing Ploy.  And I'm not in any way biased towards Marvel.   ;)

I hoped there'd be one left yesterday at open but nope. Ordered a Grievous online.

Well crap.  Looks like they are sold out online.

Supergirl premiere tonight! At 8:30? Screw you, CBS. I watch Gotham.

Supergirl...all you had you wasted!

I want to want to see this, but the ads didn't look great to me.  The actress is too spunky and seems to be a high cheese factor.

I'm also bothered that they chose "Kara Danvers" as her name.  I'm not a big DC guy, but I believe it's supposed to be Linda Lee Danvers or Kara Zor-El.  Marvel has been building up to it's Ms. Marvel introduction with "Carol Danvers," so now it's going to look to the casual fan like Marvel is copying Supergirl if the show actually takes off.  They even go so far as to call Kara "Agent Danvers" in one of the trailers, when Carol Danvers from marvel is referred to as "Agent Danvers" from SHIELD.  I call Shenanigans!

Did anyone try to get one at the store?  I'm curious how the lottery worked.

Just watched it.  Gut wrenching for sure - I did not see that coming.  I thought for sure they would climb the side fencing or something.  I can't figure out any logical way that Glenn is okay.  Sounds like we will have him in a Flashback or maybe as a ghost/hallucination.  I'm guessing they track down his pack or something to know for sure that he's gone.  It is odd that they didn't show him on TD as being gone though...

There sure were a lot of trapped/closed off alleys in that little town.  Or did group run into the only two places in town with highly secure fencing blocking the path forward?

As for Rick, I know he was exhausted, but how do you not lock the doors and keep an eye on your surroundings?  I think he'll just quietly escape to the top of the RV and the herd will push past or get drawn off.  If they can't see or hear you, the top of a high vehicle like that would be pretty safe I think. 

The last two shows were really awesome to watch.  Morgan flashback next week will hopefully still show some material from the present.

Is anyone watching "The Man in the High Castle" on Amazon? Admitting that I like most everything by Philip K. Dick, so I may be biased, but I watched the pilot tonight and I'm hooked. I imagine it'll be just as confusing as anything else by Dick, but so good at the same time.

Forgot about this until you mentioned it, but the trailer looked cool.  I will definitely check it out.

I didn't check out the live game, but did notice some updates pushed out for various scoring.  It was kind of cool/kind of invasive.  I'm assuming you have the ap?  I dumped the NFL ap because it was constantly sending me updates throughout games. 

Can someone please lay a loss on Rob to get some of the pressure off my back?

This 'crackdown' does not mean you won't be able to buy these things in the USA.  It just means you'll have to spend a little more to get them.  Instead of buying from HLJ to get your model kits, you'll have to buy on ebay or buy from a secondary seller... BBTS sells a lot of things that are "not for sale in the USA".  There are ways around it if you really want something...BBTS has been doing that for years and years. ;)

So sites like HLJ and BBTS can no longer sell this stuff to us?

These posts were in the wrong order.   ;)

Has anyone gone to either the Maul or Anakin release dates? How does the process work?

Per Yakface:

"Between 12-1pm (Est. Time Zone), lottery slips will be given to people in attendance.  Those who’s lottery number are picked will be able to purchase the figure later in the day."

So you need to get in line, then hope to get the right lottery ticket.  Ugh.
