Busy, busy, busy.  In part Dale's fault, he keeps emailing me BINs and I just can't resist.  Fish has me terrified that prices will skyrocket with the release of the DVDs.   ;)

Yoda, thanks Dale

I hear music, thanks Dale

Not the best price, but I can live with it

some headed back to ebay, some into the collection

Fore ;D

Oh, the indignation

Brent,

Some nice scores there.  Didn't mean to scare yah.  
I can't tell you how many A-Wing Pilot's or Lando General's I saw the last week going for $49 or more.  Nice to see you land that Amanaman with coin in stated "excellent condition."

Bored late last night...

I bid and won:

Lumat (figure o.k. condition) with bow for $11.00
Anakin (appears high grade) $6 and change

Only $3 shipping for both.  

I finally got a bow...

Weird aren't I?

Wowzers.  In certain respects, I should have jumped on it.  I know when I finish the vintage collection (which isn't that long from now I suspect) I'll probably chase that one.  

I need a few upgrades (my snowtrooper has no skirt) but not that many individual holes left.  Here's my list from the top of my head of what I need and what I hope to pay for them:

Yakface - under $100 preshipping
Imperial gunner - anything under $40 is good for me
Warok - would like to be under $30, but under $40 will do it
Lumat - I checked the bow again - repro :'(
Romba - under $15 - I lost an auction yesterday because I had to be away from the computer, but it was in this range
Blue Snaggletooth - around $80 for a nice piece.  

There's less than 10 non-HTF figures left for me to obtain.  Some of those are a good Leia and a good original Luke as well.  But I should be able to fill the remainder of the holes for $100 or so.  

I've very happy with the A-wing pilot/lot auction.  That netted me a few more weapons I needed and a couple of figures I needed, all for the cost of the A-wing pilot.  

I'll have a pretty decent assortment to sell off regarding extra figures at the end of it too.  May be able to generate a couple hundred back from that.  That should go to the TV fund.  

I also think I'm going to turf the trilogo hunt.  Some pieces are just too much to even think about.  I may opt for a carded ROTJ collection, but we'll see.  I'm just not that big into carded stuff anymore.  

I shipped out a couple of McFarlane variants yesterday, so the A-wing auction ended up being a net zero effect on my paypal account.  That worked out well.

Brent,

The race is on to see who can complete 100 first...I'm sure you will beat me to the completion Daddy Warbucks!

Matt,

only because my mom and dad were kind enough to drag my childhood toys around for 30 years :)

The daddy warbucks label sure fits, but this has been quite the treat buying like this.  Yes, I'm using money that's real, but it's not at all impacting my personal finances, which is quite the blessing.  Without those old toys, I sincerely doubt I would have any of the last 17, let alone be this far into it.  I am very fortunate and have an advantage few people would ever have.  All thanks to my parents.  

100 figures???

That's the original line, last 17, blue snag, wind up R2, Rebo band and the three legged R2?  Am  I missing anything there?

(BTW, thanks for the offer of the free figures, but I don't need them.  I'd only turn around and sell them and that wouldn't be right, so I'll duly pass)
