My Saesee is also in route from HK.  Hopefully he gets here sooner than 10 days  ;)

I could have splurged for the faster shipping from HK, but didn't because I'm cheap. :P  I actually got a great deal on my Saesee Tiin, thanks to a little leg work...

First, I picked up a 2nd Aurra from a friend in Japan ($82 shipped).  I was going to try to trade Aurra for Saesee, but when everyone started pulling Aurras from the Robby MCs, I knew that probably wasn't going to work, so I switched plans.

I picked up a "set of 8" (basic 6 plus JarJar and Tiin) for $270 shipped from eBay.  Then, I sold a "set of 8" (my extra Aurra plus a set of 6 and the JarJar from my MC) for $240 (after fees/shipping) on eBay.

When my "set of 8" got here today from HK, I took the Saesee Tiin and the JarJar (to replace the one I sold) and added them to my display.  The basic 6 from the set of 8 got dumped back into the "S8 sell pile".

After the legwork, I figure my Saesee Tiin cost me about $112 shipped.  Not too bad considering some of the prices out there... :)

You probably believe you are telling the truth...


I was profoundly pleased to be greeted by the mailman with both Tiin AND Blue snowtrooper today. A very nice Friday indeed.

Plus we had our Minnesota chapter gathering, so more Kuby news is sure to be posted.

Oh, and I'm up to 12 battledroids and counting...

As long as I don't go near Ebay when I've been drinking, I'm probably ok...

Thanks....


I figure it would be a while before tracking down the Maul Speeder Set. This will due for now...

That robe looks hysterical.  Great idea.  I wonder if you trimmed it down a little bit if it would look perfect.

Swung a deal with a guy on ebay for Aurra for $140. A little more than I wanted to spend but wanted to get her out of the way.
