I'll be there the whole time. The collecting track panels are going to be awesome and the giveaways are one of the best yet. I'm sponsoring the Blue Snaggletooth Star Tot so be on the lookout for him. See you guys next week!

We're doing dinner Friday night (the locals) if you wanna join us James. Just let me know. I have your cell # I believe.
Thanks for the info, that is great to know!
I have tried to be pretty selective about the loose figs I am picking up, most are from reputable dealers with 100% feedback and have detailed descriptions and photos. I have definitely noticed a few auctions that seem intentionally vague out there.
Last stupid question - what kind of a grading scale is being used on these things? I see lots of C10 and C9.5 but I have no idea what those points correspond to. Is it some kind of AFA standard?
I can see I'll be spending a lot of time in here.
I have caught the vintage collecting bug BAD in the past few weeks. I was a dedicated collector in my younger days and then lost interest around the time Kenner went under.
I got back into the whole thing with the first Clone Wars animated series. (Tartakovsky = brilliant) From there I morphed seamlessly into the CGI CW merchandise. I have pretty much everything CW related that is currently available, so my interest soon gravitated back to the original Kenner swag.
Luckily most of my early collection survived, with the exception of a few vehicles and playsets, so after a quick review I found I only needed about 18 more figs for a complete collection. And with that, the hunt was on.
Luckily eBay and I are old friends, so I have not had much trouble scoring the remainders so far. I can already see Yak Face will the the last to pick up. Even loose that mother is pricey!
I do have a question about "repro" weapons - I often see this noted in auction listings. Are these vintage era weapons from other figures being substituted or post-80's reproductions, like from the "Saga" re-releases?
I try to steer clear of anything that isn't 100% authentic or complete, but I'm still curious what that REPRO tag implies.
I am already stoked for this guest. New center, awesome guest... You gotta come eat at Primanti's with us too for once.
