The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 2
« on: March 5, 2014, 09:16 AM »
I gave up, and found a reasonably priced one on ebay.  Price was only $2 more than retail (though I did have to pay $8 in shipping).  Good enough I guess.  Now the fun starts with trying to track down stormtroopers.  I want 2, so I can have them flanking Vader when he releases.

Chewie looks great, but I think I would have preferred a closed mouth.  Still, I'll get it if I ever find it.

I agree with the massive shortage of biker scouts.  Other than Greedo and Han, I rarely see anything from this line.

Need to track down two stormtroopers, and will definitely need to find that Vader.

Collecting in general seems to be winding down for me, but there are still a few things I'll look to pick up.

SW Black 6" - hoped to stay away from this, but my brother got me the Luke and Sandtrooper from wave 1.  I went the ebay route for a boba, and am hoping to track down 2 stormtroopers when they launch plus get a few others.

GG Marvel Busts - started on these a few years back, and have 8 or 9 of them.  I'll be getting the spidey this year.  Beyond that I'll have to see what is announced.  Would love a Dr. Doom and Colossus.

DC - Been collecting the DCUC line since wave 1, and was a bit sad to see my final sub figure ship last month.  There are a few I've missed that I would like to track down, plus hoping to get some of the unreleased figs that were planned for this years sub.  Will have to see what they do with them.

MOTUC - Hoping to get Modulok next week.  would love to one day get a whiplash, and Castle Greyskull is a dream (that sadly will probably never happen).

I was trying to stay away from this line, but then my brother got me the x-wing luke and Sandtrooper for xmas.  Now I'm trying to track down Fett, but haven't had any luck so far.  And the pictures of the new stormies make me think I need two.

I'm sad to see it go, but I'm one of the people who had the sub for the first two years, and didn't renew this year.  The figures announced looked good, but costs were getting high and I felt I already had most of the "must have" figures.  Although I'm a big enough DC fan that I want *most* of the figures, I have been in it since wave 1 of DCUC.  After 18 waves of that, 2 waves of green lantern, 2 years of subscription and assorted box sets and exclusives, plus some of the early DC Superheroes ones - I've got a ton of figures.

Even still, it really came down to cost for me.  This past year each figure has been around $32 after shipping (to Canada).  Quarterly shipping would have helped, but I wasn't sure if I wanted to commit the money this time around.

The line has lasted a lot longer than I ever could have imagined, and we've got some really cool stuff out of it.  If anything I say thanks to Mattel for making it last as long as it did.  Superpowers was the previous high-water mark for DC figures for me, and this line blew it away.

So I broke down and got the membership - used the free gift on the Marvel War Machine bust and then took $10 off the Boba.  Man, that shipping is a killer - $46 to get Boba shipped!!!  Ah well, he's the last of the ESB bounty hunters that I needed.  I'll keep telling myself that.

I hear you Brent - collecting has slowed to a trickle for me as well.  With the GG busts, I have a few "core" groups that I wanted.  Vader, and the assorted stormtrooper variants, the main characters in their classic looks, and then the bounty hunters from ESB (plus a few other cool looking characters like hammerhead and admiral ackbar).  I wrapped that up a few years ago, but was missing Boba and a classic farmboy luke.  When the finally released farmboy look I wasn't crazy about the pose, so I recently picked up X-wing luke.  He's pretty well done so he fills in nicely.  Now it's just the Boba.  I was actually really disappointed when they announced that he was the SDCC exclusive, because I knew that would make him tougher to get (and more expensive).  Maybe I'll just watch ebay and see what happens.  Might regret it, but I've been missing Boba for years anyhow.

Hmm, just looked into the premier guild, and it's a possibility I suppose.  If I can wait until the Fett is available and then use the $30 for him then it's more appealing.  Otherwise the $80 is pretty pricey to add to the $150.  Any canadian guild members out there - any idea what GG uses for shipping?  Just wondering if I'm likely to get hit with a bunch of customs fees.

If there's anyone out there who has the membership but doesn't want the Fett (and is willing to order it for me), let me know.

I've started looking at ebay for the boba, and already the pre-sells are stupidly priced.  The Boba bust is supposed to be at the GG booth for $150, but the presells seems to be $250-$300 without shipping.  Like many out there I'm sure, Boba is the last of the bounty hunters from Empire that I need, so I've really been hoping to get him with this second run.  Maybe prices will come down post-SDCC, but right now it's looking like I'll still be needing him for a long time.

Not expecting to have much luck here, but if there's anyone who is likely to get one they don't need and isn't looking for a crazy premium on it let me know.

Just saw some pics of the SDCC exclusive Boba (  Looks awesome, but damn, I wish this was a regular release bust.  I got into this line when the Bossk came out years ago, and Boba is the only bounty hunter I'm missing.  Not looking forward to trying to track this one down  :(

Man, I got on an hour late today and Castle Greyskullman is already sold out!!!  I wonder if they had less stock than usual?

I still want to see Battle ram.  I loved the old one, and saw prototype pics of a new one show up a few years ago that looked fantastic.  Most of the vehicles I wouldn't care about, but I would love to see that one.

Not sure how fast Rattlor went, but I managed to snag one.  I was happy to also finally get a King Greyskull.  Now I just need to figure out what to do about the castle. ???
