Modern Trading / Re: Be Wary of Franticjedi

Anyone know if this guy went by the name of sofa-king at one time?

Is that a guy on snowtroopers that's trying to sell/trade a bunch of stuff?  I was considering buying some stuff off of him (I've really got nothing to trade), but if you got a bad vibe, then maybe I don't want to.  Sometimes you've just gotta go with your gut feeling on these things.

I was playing with the idea of getting one of these since I've never bought a MR lightsaber, especially at such a good price.  However, I realized that they only ship to the US (us poor Canucks!).  Oh well, must be a sign to save my money for something else!   ;D  So, what should I try and convince the wifey I need...

You guys keep this up and I'm gonna dig out a case of beer, boil a package of noodles and really be back in university.  Cheers!  Time to go watch TV on a 13" screen while sitting on an egg crate.

My busts were shipped very nicely as well.  I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and say that they are learning from their mistakes.  You can see that these were pretty safe in the bubble wrap and styrofoam pieces.  Two thumbs up here!   :D

Oh, yeah, good stuff!  Of course, we don't have it as often these days, with the wifey on a healthy kick and all.  But the other essential is our lives is KD!  With a 3 year old daughter, what else is there to eat?

OK, you got me on that one Jesse... wha'ts KD?

Sorry Dave, KD = Kraft Dinner, macaroni & cheese!  I've probably eaten it a 1000 times, maybe more.  Man, I miss the days of living on student loans.  Funny thing is, we're still eating it...

And as for turkey HH, we've tried that too.  But it's too dry.  It leaves my Beef loving tastebuds unfulfilled.  But it's still edible at least.

Just out of curiosity, have you ever counted the number of troopers you've got there?  I was just blown away by that pic.

Power of the Force 2 / eBay Shipping Woes
« on: November 24, 2004, 10:32 PM »
A couple of months ago I won an auction on eBay for a couple of the POTF2 Eletronic Battle Fx figures - Vader and Obi-Wan.  I've made a couple of purchases on eBay over the last couple years, but I've never had anyone do something like this:



I mean, what's going through a person's head when they ship something like this?   ???  -- Let's see, box is too small, oh well, I'll just bend the cards to fit...--

Thankfully, the cards were only warped, and have nearly straightened over time, but I nearly had an aneurysm when I saw this.  Of course, when I e-mailed him about it, I didn't receive a reply.   ::)

Wow, that's an awesome collection there Jesse! Very well rounded with so many different sublines represented. Most jealous I am!

I have to concur on that Vader sculpture there. Very unique conversation piece, and an excellent addition to the collection. Congrats.

Thanks for the comments Mr Bandar.  Yes, proud am I of my collection, but I keep reading that Kubricks thread, and I'm dangerously close to wanting those!

Am I wrong in the assesment that Luke was NOT there in that photo yesterday? :o


Kevin

I depends on where you've seen my pics - I've got a couple posted in different spots on jedidefender.   :)

Jesse, have you ever seen our SWS.com thread in the Watto's section?  (it's 33 pages long)  You pretty much hit the nail on the head with your observation there:


Ha, I forgot about those pics!  Actually I have read through some of that thread (probably not all of it), I think the stories in there are what made me so nervous about ordering ANYTHING from SWS.com, much less somewhat fragile busts.

I've got my fingers crossed for you guys, if these actually do make it, you should be very happy with them.

I don't envy you Kevin.  I think job hunting is one of the hardest things to do.  I always dreaded it when it came to summer job time in university.  I don't take rejection well and when the 15th person tells you "Well, we're not looking to hire right now, but we'll keep your resume on file," I get pretty depressed.   :-[

The worst part is when you see the morons that do have jobs, and you think, well if that idiot can get a job why can't I.  I know I'm smarter than him, so what am I doing wrong?

But, eventually, your hard work will pay off.  Honest.  Stick with it, you'll see.   :)

I'm not sure what they're doing over there.  Ship some 2 weeks early, ship some (at least) 2 days late.  Must be a monkey running the show.  Hopefully they're taking the extra time to package them well.

Happy B-day, Mr. Cable!  So have the 30's brought you "the wisdom of your years"?   :)
I'm hoping so, I'll be joining the 30 club next year, and hope it'll stop me from doing stupid things on a regular basis.  We'll see!
