I really love Brick, and Brothers Bloom was really great too, but I'm not sold on the idea of Rian Johnson being the guy to take over Star Wars unless JJ Abrams is still going to be heavily involved.

Going to check out the dark grey, 2014, limited Crosstrek this weekend.  I think we're buying one next month.



EDIT:  Put the deposit down.  The car will be here around July 10.

Real Rob... very real. As for a price putting a set together, ya better win the lottery. Best guess.. errrrr 250k give or take.. prolly the latter. Vintage has gone up a tad now & with proto's/pre-production stuff prolly commanding more.

Have a read & check out the links in this thread. Some amazing stuff in the past auction links from 2011.

$250K for a loose set like that?  They're really selling for an average of $15k each!?

Incredible.

Better up the price of your car.  Its past $30k now with over a day to go.  That's nuts.

Yeah, no.  This is fun to watch.  It'd be nice to have that kind of disposable income, but I feel like I'm pissing money away when I buy a collectible that costs $250, forget $25k.

This is crazy.  I'm about to buy a new car and it's going to cost me a few hundred dollars less than this figure is about to cost (and probably thousands less once it's over).

That set of unproduced Droids and Ewoks is amazing though... any idea roughly how much a set like that costs to put together?  I'm assuming they're all real?

So does anyone more knowledgeable know if these are reasonable prices for that piece or if it's getting run up so high that it's likely to end up going to a deadbeat bidder?

Oddly enough a buddy of mine posted that on Facebook too the other day... left me wondering why this started making the rounds again...

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 3
« on: June 12, 2014, 03:13 PM »
So, for those keeping track (and complaining on and on about it), we've now had Boba in...
- SDCC Carbonite Block set
- Wave 2 (x1)
- Wave 4 (x1)
- Wave 5 Rev 1 (x3)

Will this be enough to satisfy the "I can't find Boba" crowd?

Should it be?  The only time I've ever seen one at retail was the Disney store and they were about $28 after tax.

I bought Legos early on and bailed...  I consider, often, selling those early kits...  The first TIE Fighters, B-Wings, etc.  I just can't see keeping them. :(  I've taken a lot of my micromachines and other early 90's stuff and just done away with it, usually to Goodwill to avoid hassle. 

I love the Lego stuff.  I've never been able to properly display it and over the last two years I've gone way out of my way to fill in a lot of gaps in that collection.  So I'm sort of dying to have a room big enough for it all to go up.  There's OT Star wars (nearly all of it, just missing a few of the early kits and the new Sandcrawler), then there's pretty much complete sets of Classic Space, Futuron, Blacktron I, Blacktron II, M-Tron, Space Police I, Space Police II, classic Pirates...  Then there's a ton of the castle stuff from Crusaders up through Lion Knights.  Basically, OT Star Wars and then almost complete sets of all the lines I loved as a kid, so almost nothing is newer than maybe 1996 or 1997? 

Someday.

If you happen to have any of these older SW sets, they're still on my list:

7190 - Millenium Falcon
7264 - Imperial Inspection
8129 - AT-AT Walker
10178 - AT-AT Walker (Motorized)
101143 - UCS Death Star II
10198 - Tantive IV

My whole collection is in a very small room... about 8x11.  Unfortunately this has left me with no room to do a display with the legos, which I think will be really impressive once I get to it.

As long as it continues to fit in one room, I'm holding out until we buy a place in the next 1 to 5 (?) years before I go downsizing again.

Yikes.  Kings in 5 was too optimistic.
