The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 2
« on: March 12, 2014, 11:53 PM »
Used SPRING14 promocode at HTS tonight to score Bespin Luke and Obi-Wan for $15.99 each, plus free shipping.  8)

I'm just tired of waiting for these to hit Target and I know I'll never get to TRU early enough to score their random 1 case when it arrives. This seemed like too good a deal to pass up. Now I just need that $%* Stormtrooper!

Thanks for the tip! Nice to get Luke for less than retail.

I liked everything about last night's episode. I do think these last three episodes need to ramp it up, but the last bunch of episodes have made me care about numerous characters this second half of the season I didn't care much about before. When they kill off Beth I'm going to care now.

And both Beth disappearing and Daryl joining the creepy red neck group left me with a bad feeling in my stomach.

Package at the door when I came home today. All's well that ends well.

Just thought I'd mention this because if I was a lot more wealthy I would like to have known, but there is a UK seller on ebay right now with some pretty nice custom wave 2 figures of both Droids and Ewoks up for auction right now. All out of my price range but pretty cool to see.

Lady at the post office says the carrier on that day said "he did not leave a package at my house, but remembers leaving one at a similar address number possibly with the numbers jumbled". So "it probably will show up". It didn't today. So I will let next week go by and if it doesn't I will probably call again and ask if they can do anything. Doubt they will even with him saying he didn't leave it for me. Not sure it should take more than a couple days if the wrong person put it back out for the mail man to grab, but I am impatient sometimes so hopefully it will come.

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?

I have and the post office and ebay both said, sucks for you, it says delivered. On the bright side, the package showed up a month later.

This is what I expect to happen. The sucks for you part that is. Tracking thing sort of sucks then. I had called the post office and they said they would talk to the mail man and see if he remembered but that he didn't have a phone to call so it would be when he got back. So I saw a mail man coming today but it wasn't the normal guy and he said he didn't deliver to my neighborhood yesterday so I am going to call again and see if the first person I talked to has talked to the guy from Thursday. Not sure what I just typed. Anyway I don't have high hopes, but we will see. At least it was only a grand total of $13 and not Star Wars.

Why did you have to post that?  :P I am not going to run to TRU after I just bought the Dixons 2 pack..... I am not going to run to TRU..... I am not

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.

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.
