Hmmm. That's a tough one. On one hand you seem to have clearly stated what the auction was, but on the other hand it's bad to have a dissatisfied customer. It depends how much money we're talking here. Can we see the auction?

I bit and picked up one off eBay for $125. I can rationalize it any number of silly ways but what's the point? I wanted it and I got it, no time for remorse.

At least now I can be happy with a complete collection. I wonder if there will be any minor tweaks between this and the Wave 2 Boba...guessing not.

Dude there's nothing wrong with that. I wanted the Star Wars and 2 Marvel exclusives at SDCC this year. I happened to be flying NY to SD for work right after the comic con. I figured I'd leave 4-5 days early and go to SDCC also. But when you factor in hotels, rental car, admission, and the crowds and hassle, it's a hell of a lot more expensive, annoying and time consuming.

The $75 extra you spent was a pittance for the relaxed convenience of having it shipped to your door.

If they were $15, I'd be all in.

That's what she said.

They're all up on HTS at this moment.

P-Sizzle stop thinking in 2 dimensions.

I got my first Sandtrooper today and it is AMAZING!!!!!!!  First time ever since 1977 that a storm trooper helmet was sculpted correctly. Absolutely perfect. I'm getting a freaking hundred.

 And 1 Maul when I see it.

Target for those on the hunt.

Avengers - solid/good
New Avengers - amazing
Uncanny Avengers - really good
Avengers Arena - one of the unsuspecting top titles in Marvel Now
Secret Avengers - solid
Uncanny X-Men - disappointing
All-New X-Men - solid
Uncanny X-Force - disappointing/solid
Cable and X-Force - good/solid
Superior Spider-Man - solid
Superior Foes of Spider-Man - solid
Daredevil - solid
Thunderbolts - solid/good
Ultimate Spider-Man - good/really good

** My scale: bad-->disappointing-->solid-->good-->really good-->amazing

Prior to Marvel Now, the 3 books I found to be the best were Uncanny X-Force (2010), Thunderbolts (2009-2012), and Wolverine (2010).

Pujols wasn't suspended. His foot was jacked up a few days ago. There really aren't too many stars being suspended for roids after Braun and A-Rod.  The next biggest name is Nelson Cruz and after that the talent drops off to fringe-fantasy impact.

That was some epic suck!

It'll be back for Episode VII.

Maybe.

Sets were $15 retail...  I got a few for $10 all ATST guys though ironically though Ewoks lingered longer.  The ATST guys I got seemed to be returns or lost in the stock room then bam.  Weird.  Still ATST's here.

Sweet. I saw this thread this morning and remembered I never picked them up. Got em on ebay for $15 each and was stoked.

Wow. That is nice. I actually totally forgot about this ewok and at-st driver KMart stuff last year. Went over to eBay expecting to have to lube up, but they're actually only $15 for each set. That is a lot cheaper than last year. Maybe even better than the MSRP?

Winning.

Surely I don't have any pitchers on roids.

I heard Clemens is working his way back.

Packaging is awesome. Not really into the set though and it doesnt seem like Headpool is included.

He is. He is to the right in the blister with Wade.

I actually do hope Miguel Cabrera and Chris Davis met once a week to inject each other with steroids.

With Paul Goldschmidt as their dealer no doubt.

Well, Goldschmidt supplied Adam Jones and Yoenis Cespedes, who then dealt it to Davis and Cabrera for profit.  Adrian Beltre was a mule.

Which is great.  Because if your offense weren't such a huge pain in my ass, my lead would probably be 20 instead of 10, and this thing would be about over already.

We've all been jacked by injuries. Depth has played a role. And late round value picks/free agent pickups has been huge this season.  My team actually has gotten better with Bryce Harper, Price, Crawford and Utley out.  That defies all convention.

Here's another nugget. I have been playing fantasy baseball since age 12.  Before the web. Drafts in our living rooms. Stats tabulated by hand with sunday's USA today.  Stud hitters then were 30 HR guys. There were very few injuries!  My theory: as steroids came into the game, when Sammy Sosa, Brady Anderson, Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds and Luis Gonzalez went nuts, the muscles got too big and put more strain on tendons and ligaments than is intended.  Therefore more injuries.  At first, everyone was saying the ball was juiced.  That it was more tightly wound in the guts. But now we know better.

About Braun, he tested positive last year.  He attacked an innocent man and claimed sample tampering and skated on a bull**** technicality.  MLB is out to nail him this time.
