Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Are you having fun collecting?
« on: August 25, 2004, 11:36 PM »
Yes.  I am having fun.

Of course, I'm not a completist, so I can pass on things like the TRU Darth Vader TIE or the OTC TIE and OTC X-Wing and not feel bad about it.

To tell you the truth, I am loving these vOTC figures.  The giddy feeling I get when I crack open one of these bad boys completely washes away the worried thoughts about how much gas $$ I just shelled out to track them down.

I think I hit "the wall" back during Episode 1 when crap was flying at us a mile a minute.  It was then that I decided to ditch the "buy two of everything" mentality.  I sold off a LOT of my extra carded deluxe figures, Cinema Scenes, boxed vehicles, etc.

I pared down my collection to one of every NEW toy (figures, vehicles, etc) and one of every basic figure MOMC as well.  If it's not NEW, I don't buy it.  This allows me to pass on things like the Wal-Mart DVD sets or the Carry Cases, or the TRU Vader TIE. 

So, yeah.  I am still having fun collecting, but I think every collector goes through the ups and downs.  The best part about collecting is that that next big score might just swing the pendulum back the other way, and you'll be doubting as to why you even though of giving it up!  :)

There are members that really appreciate our help, so it is worth the extra work most of the time. 

I wonder who they are...?

I think you all are most excellent for helping out us poor midwestern shlubs with these cool Disney exclusives...

Well,

I see that Wayne is no longer on-line so...
By the power granted to me by the wise Wayne/reconsgt, he selects:

(Round 2) pick #28 - Trent Green, QB

(Round 3) pick #29 - Aaron Brooks, QB

Back to Dustrho...

At least you're willing to admit that it's blind homerism that led you to that conclusion...

Exactly.  He may be a good/successful football player, sure, BUT as long as he wears the loathesome Cheesehead Green and Gold, he is and forever shall be a "wuss".

AHEM...

Favre is a wuss. 

I am sorry if my views offend you or cause you two to think less of me, but as a fan of the beloved Purple and Gold, it is my legal obligation to think this way.

SKOAL VIKINGS, HONOR YOUR NAME,
GO GET THAT FIRST DOWN,
THEN GET A TOUCHDOWN.
ROCK’EM... SOCK’EM...
FIGHT!!! FIGHT!!! FIGHT!!! FIGHT!!!

GO VIKINGS, RUN UP THE SCORE,
YOU’LL HEAR US YELL FOR MORE.
V - I - K - I - N - G - S
SKOAL, VIKINGS, LET’S GO!!!
SKOAL!!!

Jeff

ps.

Favre is still a wuss.

Favre is a wuss.  Plain and simple.

  Just seems strange, and inconsistent to me.

What?  Hasbro did something that's strange and inconsistent?   
That's not at all like them...

:P

FYI -

Due to the size of this thread, I spun off two new threads for the ESB and RoTJ waves...

The vOTC ESB wave Thread

The vOTC RotJ wave Thread

Feel free to continue discussing the ANH vOTC figures or other random vOTC topics here, as JD.com is a place where there is no "Official Thread" for anything...  ;)

I was wondering, for those of you who ended up ordering cases of the VOTC online, have any of you received them yet (the ones that are out, anyways). 

I have not yet recieved ANY of the vOTC cases I ordered, including wave 1 which I am sure is going to be cancelled at some point...

So far, I am happy with Vader and Yoda.  I opened up my extra set (thanks Scott!), and thought I'd do a mini-review.

Vader: Excellent.  Great articulation, although his shoulder joints are a bit strange, not quite the normal ball-joints them seem to be different.  I love the flowing cape, and I must be lucky because my Vader's chain stays down.

Yoda:  So far, he ranks only higher than Luke in my vOTC rankings.  Not quite the right color and a little bit tiny compared to other Yoda figures.  I love his individually sculpted legs though!  First time they tried it and his legs seems so skinny and alien.  Very good.  The rest, eh.

Han is still my favorite though...

Stormtrooper:

Since our VOTC thread is getting so huge, I thought I'd abuse my new found Mod skillz and spin off separate threads for the ESB wave and the RotJ waves...
