Interesting.  Compared to the one from Ryan Shaw, that one doesn't do it for me.

I lol'd. 

Then I bought one.

There aren't too many cities I can work in and Chicago is worth the price.

Too many arrest warrants in the other big cities?

Man... that Chicago stereotype is completely valid, but only for certain areas.  Go too far south, too far south west and you're ******.  Live up by me and it's yuppies and Cubs fans.   It's expensive, but my neighborhood, and most of the north side, is completely safe.

I'm in Downtown Chicago so it might be higher than other places, but yes.  Also the sales tax in the Loop is 12% - so you're looking at nearly $18 for that Qui-Gon.

I figured it was over, was just wondering if the auction page was still online.

Here you go:



Looks pretty good overall.  Probably a little shiny for my tastes, but a cool piece.

Is the auction for the Slave Leia you bid on still around?  I'd be curious to see what they look like.

Can't say I've ever seen a cheap (or simply normal priced) figure in a pharmacy, sooooooo....  Yeah, careful what you wish for mayb?  :-\

I ran into a 2012 Legends Qui-Gon a few months ago in a Walgreens.  It was $15.99

No.

Or they could go Holiday Special or the prototype armor. 

So many ways to milk that one...

So Callahan is staying with the Lightning.  I figured they'd given up St. Louis for a late season rental and the picks, so that was nice to hear.  I know this doesn't matter to anyone other than me and people in Florida - but I'm happy about it.

I didn't know this thread was here... I'd love to see photos of the Tarkin.

Here's my only bootlegs... although they look so damn good I don't even think of them that way.  Both are from Ryan Shaw.  As far as I know there are only four of the Leia's out there.  He made about 25 Gargans.  This was the last one, and the paint on it is different from the rest.



There's also this Sandtrooper... he just gave me the Torso and while it's a little sloppy, I did my best to paint it and hack it together out of a beat up stormtrooper:

This might actually work for me...  There are about 85 Walgreens stores around here.

I doubt Disney is unhappy.  Even if Johnson does end up taking over, I'd bet my left arm that Abrams stays on as executive producer.

You couldn't get a 500 square foot studio around here for that. :)
