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.
