You might want to check with your neighbors for the package.

I will. I kind of assumed they'd have thrown it at my front door if that were the case.

Really a USPS question, but I did buy off ebay. Anyone ever have a package marked as "delivered" in tracking but not get it? Anything I can do about it?

33
For the most part I won't "pay" for shipping on ebay. So if I would bid $x then I actually bid $x - shipping cost. Unless I really want it. So shipping cost stops me from bidding on a lot of things.

I enjoy the character development episodes too and thought the last 20 minutes of this episode was excellent.

Picked up a loose Darth Vader's Star Destroyer Playset. It is missing the hatch door, the gun, and most important to me the top part of Vader's chamber. That said it was less than $10 total. Hopefully with some patience I can get the other pieces cheap. I am, however, the type of person who is willing to pay a little more total if I can pay in "installments" so I am happy.

Sorry, I spaced on this, but just checked and here's what I found:

I have the gun that goes on the front
Did not have the hatch door - sorry
I have the top of Vader's chamber, but it is missing the cap to the very top of the cylinder where the batteries go in I believe

LMK if you're interested in either of the 2 pieces above and I'll be happy to work something out.  :)

I am interested! I've never bought something not on ebay or a website so let me know what you are thinking. Thanks

Going to see Eric Burdon and The Animals on Friday. As long as he doesn't have a heart attack during the show it should be really cool.

Pretty awesome that at 72 he could still rock it out like he did last night! Awesome concert! Small venue. So cool.

I think I have a problem:
Passed on these for sooooo long. Which sucks now because I have held wave one in my hands numerous times year or two back when they first came out. Anyway finally caved on the Walgreens Rick a few months back. Then wanted Maggie, but found Glenn first. Then got Maggie. Then bought comic Governor. Then remembered the sports card shop by me had some WD stuff so stopped there and bought Tyreese, wave 3 Michonne and wave 2 Shane all for $13.95 a piece which is an awesome deal for Michonne and Shane. Then stopped into TRU with my 15% coupon and bought the lone Daryl/Merle 2 pack they had. And had to buy a Bicycle Girl off ebay. Good God. My wife is going to kill me.

Saw the first wave at TRU today. Liked the Heff. Wanted to punch the Kid Rock in the face. Didn't buy any. Will wait for Mark.

Finished volume 5 last night and I have to say I'm loving this. Had to force myself to bed at 1 a.m. I do find myself sometimes mixing stories in my head between the show and the comic, but happy I decided to start reading. With that said I haven't hit the point where I'm "past" the show's storyline to thus possibly "spoil" things for myself.

Just nabbed a sealed on a cut card Droids Sise Fromm coin on ebay. VERY cut card, as in I have pretty much a rectangle cut around the coin, but still like that it's "uncirculated" AND am happy that the back of the card is where the picture of the Sise Fromm fig itself is.

Now I at least have something that came in the same package as the Sise and Tig figures with my other recent purchase. (yeah I have weird theories)

I'm going with reading but slowly so I don't leapfrog the show.  I'm doing the same with Game of Thrones.  Even if stuff doesn't line perfectly between the two I still prefer to be behind on the reading.

That is a tempting plan of action. I'm surprised you've been able to not "need to know what happens next" and thrown out your plan though. Not sure I would be able to do that.

Compendium 2 was $25 at Amazon a few days ago.  It's up to $30 now.

I decided to stick with the smaller versions. Those Compendiums are so huge. Not sure why that matters to me. (leave it alone Justin)

Thanks gentlemen.

Based off the way I was leaning and no one saying "don't read them", I am half way through volume 1. Now to hope I can find the others I need used before I get to that point since my self control isn't good and I don't want to spend $15 per on the others.
