Vintage Kenner / Re: New To Vintage Collecting? Some Tips!
« on: December 9, 2009, 09:22 AM »
Yep, I am in the process of completing my vintage playset run right now. I lost all of the cardboard backdrops and somehow missed 1 or 2 of those altogether. (Cloud City?!?!)

If you scan through some of the older threads in this forum, there is a wealth of information to be found. I know I have read about the decaying foam issue before. There is replacement foam available, but it is not the same as the vintage stuff, so to me it is a poor substitute. You might check around on eBay, I believe I have run across some on there.

I have the same problem with the foam in my Death Star trash compactor. It literally crumbles in your hand if you touch it now.

Interesting. So is the guy who sends JD the pictures the same guy that just posted these on eBay? Or are people just "borrowing" the images?

I do recall seeing the Vebb image here first, but at the time it was a random posting and not tied to an eBay auction. I guess we are making progress though!

I guess the next step will be seeing these in stock at the e-tailers.

I just hope they decide to release this as part of the TCW line. Seems like a perfect fit.

Does it matter?  ;)

can't...resist...taking...bait...  ;D

Yep, it matters. 2 reasons, both selfish. First, I only collect TCW stuff, I don't care for the TLC figures, although the ships are cool. But I am a super-strict collector in terms of my focus and what I will spend $$ on. No mixing and matching, TCW uber alles. Second, I just think it's a cool ship and would love to see this in the animated show wreaking havoc in all its glory. If they make a toy of it for that line it increases the likelihood we'll actually get to see that thing in action.

This wave has hit here in VA too...I saw Willrow, Zuckuss etc at my local Wally last night. $6 isn't shabby either.

According to JTA there are more loose images showing up on eBay, even a carded Vebb figure! They are speculating that these are likely to hit retail soon...oh, let it be true!

Got my vintage Hoth Ice Planet playset in the mail yesterday...the cardboard backdrop was all I really needed and it looks great. Very pleased with this one.

It still seems messed up to me that I can pick up all these playsets and vehicles cheaper than the remaining figures I need.

That was a pretty rough looking card...I'm glad my collecting sickness does not extend that deeply. Collecting carded stuff would be a nightmare right now.

Ok, one more down...I hunted down the variant Droopy w/silver mic stand and black clarinet today. That leaves me with 9 basic figs and 10 variants to complete the collection. (although 6 of those variants ain't happening anytime soon short of a financial windfall)

I'm doing a comprehensive review now of Gus' variant list posted elsewhere in this forum, but so far I feel pretty good with the group I settled on to begin with. Not sure I will be adding much, if any, to the Master List.

I'm all psyched for knocking out the Droids next though!

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
« on: December 7, 2009, 11:54 AM »
Got the loose figures from the upcoming Walmart sets I wanted:
Plour and Dllr (both great) Rom (great head sculpt, looks very much like Tagge, body is awful-a mishmash of Sunbers legs and Ozzels! top painted bottle green with a heavy dark wash, made me sick in my mouth a little) IG-97 (Eh, not a uninteresting figure, same body as Geonosis commander, very stiff joints) And General Weir (glad to have him to lead my evo Storm commandos, but he suffers from bad pin-hotheadedness) . Not a great bunch altogether, but more Rogues is always good.


Where did you manage to procure all of those? eBay?

I love it...totally mini-rig. I just hope they decide to release this as part of the TCW line. Seems like a perfect fit.

Am I the only one who thinks this is going to show up in the TCW line? It is mega cool either way, but this seems like something we are likely to see on the show this season at some point.

Oops my bad...you are 100% correct. That is odd, Stone is definitely part of the next wave. (CW44)

I got my CostCo exclusive AT-TE in the mail yesterday...this thing is monstrous and totally worth the $$$, IMO. It was a long time coming but well worth the wait. My Clone Wars collection is officially complete!

Snagged the variant silver microphone for Sy Snootles this morning...a most welcome addition. Now I need to hunt down the corresponding variant pieces for Droopy. List is getting nice and small now, I love it.

I thought Commander Stone was part of the wave after this one with Cold Weather Gear Anakin, Darth Sidious, Thi-Sen and TX-20.

He is, that is Jek in the new photos.

I agree, the figures look great, although the Aayla hip-to-chest ration looks a little whacked. (She's very "hippy")

Can we assume that the arrival of these photos bodes well for the possibility of seeing these before the end of the year? :)
