Thanks guys! Getting the offerless Jedi Luke was something that completely came out of left field. On the occassions when I have seen one they were going for some mad money and I wasn't ready to go down that path. But for $45, I'll sure as hell do it.  ;D

Double I - if you're only going to have one carded figure, Jedi Luke is definitely the way to go!

Jesse - the Star Tots are awesome, Chris G and all the SWCA crew did a helluva job with this giveaway.

Found a loose Dagobah playset this past weekend for $5 at a thrift store.  It's missing the crates and one figure holder but it was in great shape.  Also found a loose Hammerhead for $2 and a single mynock hunt gas mask from the vintage survival pack for .50 at the same store.  Now I have to find this Yoda....if he even exists.

UM, what?!?!

Whoever was bidding that much must have thought they were bidding on all those items in that one living room photo.

I can't see one of those things being worth more than a Vlix. Does not compute.

Dale - great pickup on the Vlix, it's a beauty. Also great to meet you at C6, what a blast that was. Seems like just yesterday but really it was now a month ago :(

Yes, was nice to meet up with you too, good times.  :)  Having some CVI withdraws with the gang, tons of stories, eats & drinks. Will have to wait for the next Celebration in the US, Germany is out for me.  :-\
Great scores Jason, ya got more than I did.   ;D


Will just bring the otheR places discussion in here.  Also check the completed on that seller, 12 header,  20 header with Fett offer & a bin with tray... bidding madness!   :o

I decided to complete my vintage collection recently, so I started by taking the first step into a larger world (POTF) with these two:



They're perfect, which is nice. Probably overpaid for Lando, but got Luke a little cheaper than I expected. Got three of the last 17; 14 to go.  :P Plus a few common figures that need replacing.

Speaking of Amanaman, what's a fair price for a loose Amanaman, without his staff or coin?

I scored a minty complete Twin Pod Cloud Car for $15 yesterday as well as a $15 Complete Hoth Ice Planet playset.  Some of the cardboard is worn, but the elevator to the AT-AT still works and it looks clean otherwise.  Not a bad haul...

Did a little bit of trading last night...fist time in a long time.

Mostly promo, freebie, giveaways, and little stuff..nothing major.

I did manage to get a vintage C-3PO case. Nothing mint, but still nice to have...just one of those vintage items I just never got around to ever picking up.

He also had 2 vintage weapons and some parts, but alas, nothing I needed. Still need a couple weapons for my vintage stuff I never got a round to grabbing.

Everything else was modern, but one less vintage piece I need to get.
