Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

Thanks. :)

I was going to buy a dewback from him, but he decided to keep it and there was an Interceptor, but the stickers were peeling up.  He's also got another pile of stuff he's going to bring in sometime that may or may not include an Ewok Village and some other good stuff.

Wow - you never hear about stuff like this these days.  Great catch!  If he has anything left, you should have him post here - I'm sure people would scoop up the rest of the leftovers!

We maxed out at $3.30 in Minneapolis this weekend.  It's down to $3.19 now, which is still ridiculous.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 2007 Star Wars Comic Packs
« on: May 15, 2007, 09:08 PM »
Yet to see these around Pittsburgh.  We dont' have pegspace for comic packs at ANY store even though...  TRU, Target, KM, WM, they all are devoid of comic pack pegs.  Kinda sucks since, of course, Wave 2 are the best so far and aren't shipping much around here (yet).  A sign of the times with Star Wars it seems.

We don't have peg space for them in Minnesota right now either.  I found them using the DPCI at Target - almost all of the Targets around here have them in the back room, but haven't brought them out because the aisle has yet to be reset.

I thought last night's episode was terrific!  I was a little bothered that they offed so many people in one show, who knows if they're all truly dead.  I was happy to see Ted go - he was sort of a wasted character IMO.  I'm indifferent on Linderman and Eric Roberts - They both died pretty senselessly and its nice to have some bad guys around other than Sylar.  Will be interesting to see who replaces ER at the agency and I'm just not convinced that Linderman is gone.  He's involved in almost every episode - I think it would be a shame if that plot line just vanished. 

As for Sylar, I think he'll kill Ando and that will finally drive hiro to slice him.  I don't think that will kill him though - he seems almost as indestructible as Peter despite not having Claire's power.  I think Sylar and Peter will have to face off at some point, but I don't know if that will come next week.  Peter seems fairly indestructible given that he survived the shard of glass through his brain and Future Peter survived the explosion that took out New York.  I don't get why Future Pete had a scar though - if he had the healing factor, then the scar shouldn't have been there. 

Definitely looking forward to next week!

Glad to see that this hasn't shown up yet. With all the buying over the last few months, I'm enjoying this little "vacation" from new stuff for a few weeks!

Picked up DS Troopers number 28, 29 and 30 yesteday. 6 more I've got my Platoon.

DA, do you have any pictures of your collection?  It must be massive with all those troops! I'm assuming you preak them out for some kind of dioramma...?

Snagged a Luke/R2 pack at the local Target using the DCPI trick. The box had already been pilfered of the others though. I noticed my Luke has a longer right leg... weird.

Uh...longer than what?  Heh heh ...heh heh.  ;)

Kubricks / Re: kubricks dead
« on: May 12, 2007, 10:31 PM »
Here's the funny part though - Mediacom doesn't make $100 on their varient figs.  They make fewer of them and sell them at essentially the same price as all the other figures via a case price.  Its the folks that resell the rarer piees on the secondary market that make the big bucks on variants.  So what I don't get is, why would Mediacom not just make the same number of all figures and capitalize on selling a lot more of the rarer figs?  Or do you think they keep some of the rare ones and sell them for more money on Ebay?

Kubricks / Re: kubricks dead
« on: May 12, 2007, 02:55 PM »
i agree evenflow....

i love the kubricks line and i know the demand is still there. it seems more like medicom is focusing in on other products (VCD, RAH, etc) that this line that we all love has taken the backseat. it's really sad walking into my comic book shop and seeing no kubricks, but seeing tons of dunnys and other imported mini figures untouched and collecting dust. there is no kubricks in site at any of those stores. kubricks used to be plentiful around these parts and would sell very well. the comic book shops never even got an assortment of Star Wars Series 7 kubricks (which the SW line was by far their biggest seller). i had to resort to the internet to buy a box of 12.

Not that I have seen any lost interest from other MN Kubie collectors, but what do you guys think about the impact exclusives have had on this line?  Have the kept people interested in the off chance that they can find the varient figures or are they a barrier for completists who refuse to spend +$100 for the rarer figures? 

I collect just the common figs and a few of the cheaper, more common variants, but I would definitely have bought all of the figures if they were priced more reasonably.

Yes its dead and prices have plummeted (trust me) so everyone sell me your kubricks.
I'm paying an outrageously HIGH price of $1.00 per kubrick.

LMAO.  I'll overpay with $1.50 for any chase figures out there.  Get in on these deals before your Kubes are worth nothing!   ;)

Thanks for the info.  So do people think that BBTS is not going to come thru on these?

I kind of think the Autobots look better so far too.  At least some of them are recognizable (compared to the cartoon versions), such as Prime, Jazz, and to a lesser extent Bumblebee.

I think they are okay, but definitely like the cartoon versions 10x better.  I don't get why they modified them and created new characters.  There are characters that would have worked for each vehicle they used, and why not at least keep the heads similar to the TF of old?  Getting a little tired of people taking cool stuff from the 80's, getting us excited by giving it new life, then bastardizing it with their "creative take" on characters/story.   >:(

They always change around noon these days Jay.  :-\  I think of it as gambling.  If I need gas, I drive by 3 stations on the way in and try to guess whether the price will be higher on the way home or lower.  I almost always wait to see if it goes lower and 99% of the time it goes higher.   >:(

There's no shortage of idiots in the NFL, that's for sure.

Well hopefully they keep him out and that's one less idiot to deal with.  You owe how much money and you're still doing this crap?  I totally believe in second chances, but this guy's on his like 6th or 7th.

They hit $3 mid week and I was holding out for them to come back down, but today they skyrocketed to $3.30.  I don't think the fact that fishing season starts tomorrow had anything to do with it.   ;) ::)
