I don't think it's a hotmail defect.  I got a similar style e-mail supposedly from ebay last year, and the exact same problem would happen when I tried to forward it to their "spoof" department.  I think the sender (an ID scavenger) must somehow have something built-in to the e-mail to prevent it from being forwarded.

Another trick to determine if the e-mail is fake is to place your mouse arrow over that link (without clicking it).  Look down at your status bar, usually the fake will be busted by the fact that a different url appears than the one that appears in the e-mail.

On a totally different note:

Can you imagine paying $100 for yet another one of the re-re-re-rehashed Hans? 
I don't imagine it'll be selling anytime soon.   ::)

I declare Shenanigans on that ****!

Amen.  Not only they charge 2-3X the domestic shipping price, many sellers (especially online shops) will also add a handling fee as well.  Hey, I know you've got to fill out the customs slip, but is that really worth another $5 to $15?  Argh.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Trooper 4 Packs!
« on: January 21, 2005, 01:01 AM »

It makes me wonder, would EE try to commision a second manufacturing run from Hasbro if they do pre-sell out the 4-packs from the first run?


I doubt it.  I would think that they'd just consider the sell-out a success, and perhaps use those production numbers towards another potential (different) exclusive in the future.

I just looked into this:

Insertion fee ($500US +) = $4.80US
BIN fee = $0.05US
Final value fees ($1,000US +) = 5.25% of the initial $25 = $1.31US
                 plus 2.75% of the initial $25.01 to $1,000.00 = $26.81US
         plus 1.50% of the remaining closing value balance = $66.37US
Total fee = $71.22

So he spends $71.22 and makes $2500 for a profit of $2428.78.  Not bad for something he pad nadda for.

Hmm.  I guess there's good (less $$ on shipping) and bad (more waiting) involved with that system.  You can tell that I've ordered so many times from - once, actually.   :-\

I just wanted to bump this up for anybody that might happen to find any of the last few OTC that I need.  I'd love to track down a Y-Wing and Slave I - anybody even seen these in stores lately?

Who knows?  Maybe the completist gene in someone will actually drive them to buy it.  I imagine (or at least would hope) that this guy doesn't actually expect to get this much $$ for it - he probably figured he'd just set an insane price and if someone bit on the price, what the hell, might as well let it go.

Has anyone received their bust-up stormtroopers from yet?

Quiet on this front too.   ::)

Did you ask them to hold the bust until your bust-ups were shipped?  If not, you'd think they would have sent it by now.

$2500?  That's insulting!  Please, please, please tell me that no one will pay that.   ::)

I love days like this - so much to look forward to!!

This might be a stupid question, but has anyone heard if all of these are new sculpts?  You don't think they'd sneak any repacks in would they?  I'm expecting they're all new since they are all specific to ROTS, but any possibility that Hasbro would simply repaint some old sculpts for some characters?  Geez, I must be getting pessimistic despite my excitement.   ???:)

The Captain's Log.

Man, if I had $40 to blow on one thing right now, I would.
currently taking donations. ;)

Can you believe that this went for $121.38?  Who knew Kirk with ******** Action Feature would be so valuable?   ;D

I'm thinking the figures where they are holding their drinks is the regular version. Were they made with the drinks just packed in first, and switched later, or is the other way around?

This is only my guess, but I'd bet that they were originally packed holding their cups, and then changed so that the cups were attached to the bubble.  I'm guessing some politically correct special interest group decided we shouldn't be directly encouraging kids to drink, so they took the cup out of their hands.   ;D

Patience is NOT a virtue of mine - if I see it, I will buy it.  That has pretty much always applied for the "basic" 3 3/4" line of figures (in this case, Collection 1 & 2).  I'm always a lot pickier with deluxe figures, beast, vehicles, playsets, etc.  Basic figures are the priority, and so I don't see myself passing on any of them.

This should give us all some perspective

Click the before and after button...its just horrible :'(

Wow.  Seeing those pictures really drove home what has happened.  It's actually a shame (for my empathy of the world) that I need the pics to "understand".  No matter what crappy things go on in my life, I've got it so much better than millions of others.
