Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Comic Book Thread
« on: July 9, 2014, 10:26 AM »
Speaking of comics, has anyone here ever unloaded some of theirs - or have suggestions on where to store things?  I've basically at this point filled up my supply of long/short boxes, and have them all stacked up in our office (which is also the collection room).  Although I do like to go through them every so often, as we've been trying to clean the house out a bit I've considered getting rid of some of them.  The vast majority are more recent (within the past 10 years), so I'm not sure there is necessarily a lot of value, but again I don't just want to throw them out either.

Brian - I had some storage issues a while back as well. I had all my comics bagged and boarded, and you'd be surprised at how much space the added protection takes up.  I ended up changing my storage from one comic/board/bag to two comics (front to back) per bag.  So, Issue #1 goes in the bag, issue #2 gets flipped backwards and goes in the same bag on the other side.  If I pick up the bag and rotate it, I can see the covers for both issues.  With the bag thicker and binder reinforcement on both sides, you don't need backing boards anymore, though I still use them every 20-30 issues to protect an anniversary or #1 issue sometimes.  I probably gained about 20% more storage per box with this method.  Might buy you a little more time.   ;)

There aren't too many cities I can work in and Chicago is worth the price.

Too many arrest warrants in the other big cities?

It has ended at a whopping $50,099.00.  Not bad for an auction which had a bin before of 25k! Oy!

WOW.  I just can't even imagine that.

Pass.  Any news Kubrick releases are dead to me.

Not a fan of the hideous movie bots.  If this was a redo of the G1 figures, I would be in trouble...

This is crazy.  I'm about to buy a new car and it's going to cost me a few hundred dollars less than this figure is about to cost (and probably thousands less once it's over).

That set of unproduced Droids and Ewoks is amazing though... any idea roughly how much a set like that costs to put together?  I'm assuming they're all real?

Better up the price of your car.  Its past $30k now with over a day to go.  That's nuts.

I'm sure there's more to it than we are privy to.  It's unfortunate that they don't have a PR group interested in communication with the fandom to help us understand issues like this.  Without any information, all we can do is speculate on their assumed incompetence.

Yeah, nice additions!  The boots and accessories are often missing, so that's a nice find.

I like these three.  Less excited about Threepio, but will be glad to have him with R2.  Maybe later on they can release a $50 Threepio and R2 2-pack.  I just hope C3PO isn't 2 per case.   :P   Bossk will be terrific - there's tons of detail to that figure, so can't wait to see what they've sculpted.  And I really like the Han Trooper idea.  On paper it's a win for Hasbro with less sculpting/tooling and a win for collectors who get another version of a favorite character OR another stormtrooper, which is still tough to find.  I'm assuming of course that it comes with a helmet.

would they scale down the Luke to make him appropriately sized as being "a little short for a Stormtrooper"?

This please! that would be a great win for the line given the infamous "short for a stormtrooper" line.

Bounty Hunters seem to be a safe direction for this line.  I would expect that Hasbro might want to space them out for a couple of reasons:  keeping the Bounty Hunters hot in the minds of collectors, and prolonging the longevity of the line.

I hope we end up with all six bounty hunters in the line, but you never know.  The old 12" lines had them all eventually, but I don't recall any of those individual 12" lines having all six.  In the latest vintage carded assortment, I think we only got Dengar, Boba, and 4-Lom, so it's not a sure thing.  I'd actually prefer they get to them soon versus later, so if the line gets cancelled at some point I'm not stuck displaying 5/6 of the Hunt for Han scene.

Anybody see the GOTG Lego Set that's out now?  Groot & Rocket look incredible!

A no-brainer two pack would have been two Stormies.

How about a 3-pack of identical Boba Fett figures.  Now we're talking.  Yes, I'm being sarcastic.

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...
