Sorry to hear that Bilbo.  I think a good starting place would be the classified section or the trade section.

I'm impressed that in just 2 weeks after a house fire in which belongings were lost, one of your first priorities is to rebuild your star wars figure collection.  Thatta boy!!   :D

I think you can usually find huge lots of figures on eBay as well, I see it all the time.

Sorry to hear about your fire, Bilbo.  Best of luck in rebuilding things, including your collection.

I think if anyone here actually knew who you were though, you may have better luck with the donations...  :-\

I dont think anyone gives Brianstoys enough credit.  Cant any of you remember some of the deals he used to offer?  With every $200 purchase he used to let you pick a free gift.  Usually some $1 clearance pegwarmer.  Sales I bet skyrocketed.

I'm a bit disappointed that Bilbo hasn't come back to let me know how much of my collection he can handle.

Hey guys, I'm serious. And for what you got for free, I remeber buy $150 and get my Boba Fett vs. IG-88, I think that was a good deal. I buy stuff to trade and for me was a good deal. Right now they have:
  • Emperor $1.99
  • Han Solo $1.99
  • Leia $1.99
  • Han Solo CT $2.99
  • Lando Skiff $2.99

Those really aren't great deals. You can get most of those really cheap ones for that on E-Bay and you can get most of those loose for about $5 or less in the classifieds here. The "freebies' are always the biggest pegwarmers. And for awhile you could get Silver Fetts for the cheap price of $325.00 ::)
