Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
« on: April 13, 2005, 09:43 PM »
Found a pile of new figures tonight at Kohl's! I picked up 1x each of the following:

#35 Palpatine w/RED Saber
#37 Vader's Chopper Droid
#38 AT-TE Gunner
#39 Polis Massan
#40 Mas Amedda

I gladly bought them despite the price -  $6.99 seems a bit steep, but really only $1 more than Target/TRU ($5.99).

Ugh.  He is creepy looking...  :-\


Ever talk to him?

I'd love to know what the story is with that weird hat he's got.

Looks kinda like a flasher, or something...

I have actually talked to him a few times.  He is hyper-obsessed with the Ice Cream Maker Guy from The Empire Striikes Back.  It's all he ever wants to talk about.

"Do you think they'll ever make ICMG (pronounced i-cee-em-gee)?"
"I heard on-line that they're gonna finally make ICMG!"
"Man I wish ICMG was gonna be the C3 exclusive."

There is this one creepy collector in my area named "Scott".

He is always buying the rare and HTF figures from the stores before I can find them.  >:(

Anyway, this dude is seriously tall - almost freakishly tall - and he gives the store clerks the strangest looks.  Here, I happened to snap a picture of him once:



I'm getting creeped out right now just remembering it... :-\

The one about Creepy Collector Sightings?

It was moved from the RotS Figure Forum to Watto's. 

http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=7149.0

We figured it was about more than just RotS figures, so it was moved to the general discussion of Watto's.

$15 each with $7.00 shipping = ouch :o!

To be fair, that's $15.00 plus $7.00 shipping for a set of 10...


Quote
To keep this very simple, they will be sold in lots of 10 only, and the price each below is for each set of 10 and the shipping is for each set of 10.

Works out to $2.20 each with shipping.

Maybe you ban people based on geographical location. I'm pretty sure no troublemakers are from the Northwest like me, but just in case they are I could always decide that I'm "From" California (cause that's where I grew up).

I think you're absolutely right Jeff, and that's something I'd already been contemplating myself.  So let's see here...  Since Bob got this all started, and he works at GH, any other GH'ers are officially toast now.  LJ's on the list too, so I think that's going to have to wipe out any RS'ers as well.  But Jamie though?  Hmm...  That's a tricky one, 'cause you know what that would mean...  :-\

Oh, yeah - let's go GEOGRAPHICALLY too!

Imagine the banned list...

everyone who is from Canada- OUT (thanks to Brent/Bob)
everyone from Tennessee - OUT (Jamie)
etc etc etc

That way we catch all the stragglers who are associated with the banned that might try to sneak under our radar

We'll keep you guys posted on your status, so stay tuned...

You know what we should do?  We should ban anyone who is from the same place as them, because where ever they are from is most obviously a source of trouble-makers.

Eh, we all go by our real names around here most of the time anyway, so changing your forum nic won't make all that much of a difference to me really, Natacos.  :-*

But if you must, you must.

Yeah, I need a change I guess...


OK, you got me.   :-[

Really, it's so when I hand out my JD Business Cards to the Hooters waitresses they won't have to wonder what the hell a "Nataku" is.  It's bad enough having a business card from a nerdy SW internet site, let alone having a business card from a nerdy SW internet site with a nerdy internet name on it.   :P  ;)

Celebration III: Indianapolis / Re: Star Wars Celebration 3
« on: April 13, 2005, 01:48 PM »
Brent's actually gonna be free-ballin' it though, so that may, or may not, be of interest to some folks here...  :-\

Everytime I read throught this thread, I learn something else I didn't need to know...

Only one week to go... anyone else getting excited?  I've already started throwing a few things together so I remember to bring them along to C3!

I'd have thousands of extra dollars in my savings account probably... or at least a new car.

I'd probably be the same... a nicer car and less debt/more savings.

Without the PotF2 of the 90s, I never would have gotten into Toy Collecting, I'd probably kept reading DC Comics and maybe picked up some more of the DCD Line, but that's about it I guess...

Well, my JD Forum Name was originally the name of my favorite Gundam Mobile Suit design - Gundam Nataku. 



I figured with Gundam so closely related to SW, it was a good fit, so I started using the name when I registered with the TradeFederation and it stuck... until now.

I've decided that in honor of Celebration 3, I am going to slowly phase out my "Nataku" moniker and just go by my "regular" name, Jeff.

I figure, most of you guys know my name is Jeff anyway, so why not just step all the way out from behind the curtain and finally join the "Guys Who Use Their 'Real' Name" club?   ;)

Look for "Nataku" to be phased out this week as "Jeff" is phased in. :)

Kubricks / Re: 400% Kubricks
« on: April 13, 2005, 11:04 AM »
Eek! This thing is ******* huge!  :o   280 millimeters is equal to 11.02 inches.

My friend has the DC Direct 400% Batman, and yeah, it's about 1 foot (12") tall - huge!

This Fett is really really cool, but at $56 retail, I won't be surprised to see him fetch $200+ on the eBay market, and that's just the starting bid!  :(

Probably gonna count myself out on this one and use my left-over C3 cash to chase Logray down...
