Revenge of the Sith / Re: Toy Runs affected by Gas Prices?
« on: September 7, 2005, 11:11 AM »
As prices rise, it affects the poor much more than the rich. Gas prices would have to go up to $10-12 a gallon before it starts to put dents into medium income households. Since I'm not poor, its doesn't affect my toy runs in the least.

I think the scarer thing is the rise in housing prices. Around here in California its gone up 400-500% in a few years. Good for me that owns property. Bad for you that rent. Most new families are being majorly sqeezed out of the housing market.

Real estate is a far better investment than star wars toys. We should all stop buying star wars stuff, pay off debt and save to buy property. We would all be better off in the end and also save lots of gas from not doing toy runs.

Believe me, if you care any kind of debt and you still buy every star wars item in multiples you will wind up dirt poor for the rest of your life no matter how much you make. Pay off all your credit cards, car and student loans and buy a house instead.

I've seen all three sets around here a few times. They go pretty quickly. I skipped the sith lord set. It just didn't appeal to me.

Funny. Down in southern california, Target far out ranks walmart for having star wars stuff. Walmart typically has bare shelves around here for most of their toys. Target always keeps them stocked with mostly frog warriors. >:(

At $40 for a new TIE, I'm going to be skipping this one. I havn't bought a new ship since the preview anakin starfighter.

Does anyone have any Bossk arms or feet?

I might actually go with gi joe hard drive. I'd have to remove his baseball cap and add some hair there.

Here is the beginnings of the head I'm using. This is a ep1 Naboo guard without his hat. He's going to be a slicer Jedi so he needs the eletronics on his head. I plan on using a ep1 Mace Windu body with some gloves for hands. I think he is going to be painted black or green. Maybe both.

Chewie, how do you get that kind of finish on the super battle droid arms?

I remember that. That was one of the more silly scenes in the movie. Good positioning on both yoda and the clone.

That looks like everthing. Thanks Jeff. Now, I've got to fix some of the broken picture links.

It has been suggested that I start my own thread for the figures I've made. So, I'm going to go back in time and slowy start showing some of my older figures.

Let's start off with some figures of Jorg Sacul. The first one is a bootleg copy of the C2 exclusive Jorg Sacul. This package is entirely fake except for the inner blister tray. I tried to make this exactly like the real thing back then. I think I got pretty close.

The other is my version of Master Sacul. This one is using a casted head with quigon body and mace windu hood.

Is that because you look like the comic book guy?
