The Vintage Collection / Re: Will your collecting habits change?
« on: September 6, 2012, 11:56 PM »
I'm looking to hang it up after that last group of vintage figures comes out and I grab that BMF reissue. About the only thing I'm interested in next year is Jocasta Nu, so I'll get that when it comes out. I really can't think of anything else I would want Hasbro to make other than more characters on vintage cards (like Garindan) but that would technically make me a cardboard collector.

I think Droid Factory is a great thing, but I really don't want to feel compelled to buy new versions of things I already have to complete a droid. I'll see what 2014 brings, and welcome the break in 2013.

It would've been nice to get him for that price. As it is, I found it at TRU this morning for $70.  :)

The Club called me this morning and everything got straightened out, so I'm also a subscriber now. Here we go.  >:D

Just tried to subscribe, and both my cards were declined. Obviously a problem on their end, but considering all the roadblocks thrown up in my way, it's fate telling me not to sub, so screw it.

I really wanted a bunch of these figures, but from these bushleaguers? Well, they can just take a long walk off a short pier, and take Iceberg with them. I'm done with them.

Picked up a vintage Shock Trooper, Clone Lieutenant, and 2 Sandtroopers at TRU today. The sale on them really helped this purchase. Kind of nice to get them for $7.50 each.  :)

Thanks! Very happy with it.  :)

I'm not sure on Stalker. I know one of the DVD Battles sets had a similar yellow Stalker in one of them, which killed the value of loose ones. Carded might be a different story.

I'm pretty happy with the Steel Brigade. Super mint, came with his original baggie (opened on the side) and the patch, but the hard-to-find dark gray Airborne rifle isn't any easier to find. But I got a hell of a deal on it, so he'll probably just get a regular Airborne rifle.

I'm also torn on a carded Jinx and Zarana. I have a carded and loose Slaughter, but he was $15 cheaper than either of those two.

The USPS finally found the Jinx that was delivered July 31st (  ::) ) and I also grabbed a vintage Steel Brigade version D (according to Mark Bellomo's guide) from ebay, though he lacks his rifle.

Missed this from SDCC, but it seems we're getting the Asia Generations exclusives after all, as a TRU exclusive line:

Which is nice, because I really wanted that G2 Megatron and Springer.

Also, MP  Thundercracker is starting to show up too. Guess I'll be spending a lot of cash at TRU this fall.  :o

If I find a wave before the rest of the local guys, it usually means that wave will be easy to find. So here we go. I'm guessing because of the Sandtrooper, this wave will be a breeze to find.

Liking the Bespin Vader and Mara Jade figures, though God knows I don't need or want another Vader figure...

I guess seeing the Class II packaging with Yoda in the corner confirms AOTC 3D is actually happening.

Kind of a weak showing, but the Yoda Jedi Starfighter is awesome.  :)

Found these today. Four Pilot sets and two Ewok sets were all that was left, so I figured I better grab an Ewok set before they disappear. I'm stoked to get a new Teebo since the POTJ one is too big.

Grabbed Vader, Leia, 2 Jar Jars, and the Ewok set at my local TRU. So nice to actually find new figures at retail.

Same thing for me at TRU. The vintage ones scanned fine, but the Lost Line Jar Jar I bought did not.

Still undecided on an opener of Leia, and I'm not sure I'll get the troopers. Still nice to be done with this wave already.

And, right on cue, another personal info debacle:

Buyers Beware!

Apparently the Club is getting addresses/confirmations confused from the Joe and TF subs. What a bushleague operation.

I was considering buying Voltar and Darklon for more than  $100 each on ebay, and it appears that might be the smartest thing to do to acquire Big Boa. There's just no way I can willingly give them any card info, outside of using one of those reloadable deals.
