I'll move this to the sports section later, but figured maybe it would get a little more visibility here.

I know we lost some people last year and it kind of fizzled out, but Brent left commissioner tools with me and I figured I'd see if we could gather up enough interest for an 8 or 10 team league this year.

I'm in...
Nick seemed to be participating last year...

Jayson's got another scoop... I'm not clear on if we can order this one or if it's in park only, but here it is:

(I'll move this to the Episode I section later, I just wanted to see if I could get some quick replies in the more active section of the forum).

I've got a chance to buy this figure... I've always wanted one... there was one on eBay a few months ago and I offered the guy $300, he balked at it and it went to auction and he sold it for $320.  I told him to let me know if the sale fell through...

Today he asks me if I'm still looking for one, wants the same $320 and sends me the photo below... His feedback is stellar, he's in China, and seems to sell a lot of prototypes and weird stuff like that.  I'm tempted to buy it, but given that he somehow has another one and I don't know how rare these are, I'm skeptical.  Do you guys see any red flags in this photo?








I found this photo of the bottom of an existing copy where it's not molded-holo style plastic on the bottom...



I also found this one where the eyes look like they shoudl be painted...

The Vintage Collection / TVC Carbon Freezing Chamber Playset
« on: June 22, 2020, 03:15 PM »
Photos at Yak Face's Instagram. 

I appreciate that there's a new TVC item, and that it's a display piece / playset at that, but, it doesn't look like much.

I keep looking at the stacks of these at TRU and keep hoping they put them on sale again.  I want one, but not for $250.  $150 and it's mine.

Same boat... I don't have a spot for one, but I've wanted one for years.  They're $274.99 at the TRU near me... that's obscene.

According to Yakface, this is coming back to Target and Galaxy's Edge... my last post didn't age well, and at this point I'd pay $400 for one if it'll display as an OT Falcon.

The Vintage Collection / Wow - Modern eBay Auctions
« on: June 7, 2020, 02:37 PM »
I was just looking around eBay to see if I could find any production samples of cancelled Hasbro 3.75" items and stumbled across completed auctions for comic pack figures.  Some of these are selling for $150 to $300 for a pair of figures and I started thinking we should have a modern version of this thread that we have in the Vintage section.

Like... $300 for KASHYYYK TROOPER + COMMANDER BOGEY Republic Comic Pack STAR WARS Legacy 3.75in.



$270 for Exar Kun

$180 for Rohlan Dyre and Jararel



$250 for Deliah Blue and Darth Nihl



Like... when did this become a $330 pile of figures?!



I know these might be outliers because I was narrowing my search by highest price sold to find expensive items, but I had no idea some of this stuff sells for this kind of money.  I always figured my collection was worth $5 to $10-ish per figure on average, now I'm not so sure...

If you see crazy 1995-present auctions, post them here!

Watto's Junk Yard / How's everyone doing?!
« on: March 23, 2020, 05:31 PM »
Since everything is basically come to a screeching halt... I figured we could commiserate here and see how everyone is.  We were buying a new condo and backed out of it last week just because nothing seems stable and I didn't want to dump our nest egg into real estate until I feel better about it.  I'm working from home, so far so good, but it's all weird.

Chicago is Shelter in Place, so we're only going out for exercise and groceries at the moment.

How are you doing?

Not sure if you guys all saw this, but incase it was interesting to any of you, it seemed worthy of a thread... the mockup pages look awesome.  The only thing I can't stand about this kind of thing is that they're incomplete after a few months... I went ahead and backed it for now so I could get the tier I wanted before they sell out... it's jumped $9,000 in the 20 minutes between when I learned about it and when I posted this...

Watto's Junk Yard / 4K TV's
« on: March 9, 2018, 10:34 AM »
Anyone have one? 

What do you have?

Pros and cons of that model?

I'm thinking about buying one, I'm leaning towards the Sony X930e and while I've been reading a lot, I don't have a lot of recommendations from people who I KNOW don't have an agenda.

So I'm curious.
