Question for anyone who's seen them in the last 5 to 10 years:
Pearl Jam is one of my all time favorite bands. "Black" is my favorite song of all time.
Having said that I think their, let's say pre 2000 stuff is brilliant overall, but their post 2000 stuff is only "good" overall. When they perform now do they do a nice mix of their stuff or do they "promote" newer stuff? I know they don't have any super recent releases so that maybe helps my cause.
Any thoughts?

I think I got pretty lucky, $25 plus shipping.  He's definitely showing his age, but I'm stoked to have him.

Nice! I'd have jumped at that price.

(I believe) complete remote control R2D2. He is a little dirty, but comes with R2, the remote, the antenna, the instructions, a couple tabs I think went around his legs saying "electronic do not drop", both styrofoam inserts to hold R2 and keep the box's shape and an, I'd say, good to very good condition box.

Grand total after bid, shipping, (unfortunately) tax was $18.18. I thought it was a home run. The fact only one other person bid maybe says it isn't. Fun to get something with a box AND inserts though.

Oh and seller had it listed as "untested". I probably will leave it untested.

And now I type this more for myself than any other reason, my vintage funds need to replenish so unless I can find a reasonable priced Sise Fromm or the item is less than $10, I WILL NOT BE HAVING ANY LATEST VINTAGE ACQUISITIONS FOR A WHILE!!!! Self control, self control, self control, self control....................

Sounds like maybe it'll prevent idiot sellers from incessantly relisting toys with ridiculous BINs.  Can't complain about that!

That is a good point. One of my biggest pet peeves about ebay is the sellers who spend no research time on what their stuff is worth (same item selling for).

Sadly I paid a little over sticker price...  :)

He had to pay tax and shipping too obviously Justin.

But seriously that is cool. I will never have a 12 back and it's neat to see people who do. So pretty.

Decided to check out the classified section on Rebelscum. Good God there are a lot of a holes on that site. Settle down people. I thought I could get over emotional over toys.

I think what he's saying is there is a fee on any toy you list BIN style. Not no BIN for toys.

Droids Sise Fromm

Cost wise probably talking about loose. Even okay with a robe-less version if that's all that's available.

Thanks for looking.

Checked Tig Fromm off my list today. After watching paint rubbed, no staff or coin loose versions sell for $100+ on ebay and complete loose ones sell for closer to $175 I decided to jump on one at Brianstoys that I've had my eyes on for a while. It was right in the middle of those as far as price. AFA graded carded version. C50 B70 F80. I thought it was a steal of a price. Not sure why it lasted. At $150 (-$15 w/ coupon so $135) it was a little more than I wanted to spend on a loose Tig Fromm which is what I was expecting to own some day, but I sold some sports cards I decided I could let go in place of this and am happy I did so. Cool to have one carded.

I know AFA is not everyone's favorite, but it can't be that hard  to bust open one of those cases. Again just surprised it was that price. Obviously the card and bubble aren't great, but it's just a couple creases and dent to the lower right of bubble. The figure, staff and coin alone are worth that (again if the recent ebay auctions I've watched are a good judge). So needless to say I'm excited about it.

Sorry to make a short story long.

Has anyone verified that Jerry Jones wasn't kidnapped?

Jerry Jones was replaced by a cyborg 3 years ago.

Why didn't they upgrade to a cyborg with good general managing skills?

Exactly. That $9.95 is too tempting.

Stopped by two different B&Ns near me with no sign of these. Probably a good thing. I don't need them........

Picked up Mark Hamill today. Pretty cool. Really liked the Maggie in pink jumpsuit with her gut hanging out but passed. Great wave if your a Who fan. Kind of obnoxious to me to have three band members in the same wave.
