TV-9D9 / Re: The Book of Boba Fett (SPOILERS possible)
« on: June 3, 2023, 07:39 PM »
If that show is going to be any good, two things need to happen IMO. 

1) Don’t let Robert Rodriguez anywhere near it.
2) Get back to Boba Fett’s roots.  Go be a badass bounty hunter instead of a local crime lord who “rules with respect.”

Thank you for coming to my TED Talk. 

All this tracks with what I got… I already returned it and am waiting on a replacement.  Hopefully it’s correct.  I didn’t think to take a photo… but I don’t think it had a satchel.  Must have just been a straight up regular Indy on this card.  I kind of wish the bubble was attached, someone might have wanted the error…

Just got my Last Crusade Retro Indy and he doesn't have a tie.  He's essentially the exact same thing as the Raiders Indy, but with a Grail instead of a Whip.

Do we know if that's intentional or not? 

The bubble also popped off of the card in shipping, so it's POSSIBLE that someone switched them, but I don't know why anyone would bother or why Amazon would have mailed me one that wasn't attached.  Maybe if the Bubble was attached this would be a relatively interesting error... the card is a Last Crusade card.

I just noticed that they're jacking the price up another $25 or so.  Can't say I'm surprised, everyone everywhere is taking their pound of flesh... but it's definitely disappointing.

I don’t mind them reusing and recombining parts to make interesting new stuff like that Jabba’s Denizens pack, but lazy kit bashing for a figure that we have 8 versions of… blah.

That’s basically the price I had mine all preordered at.  I bought 12 and once I had them all set up, it felt like too many.

I sold mine.  I complained about it before, but the paint apps just weren’t different enough for me.

I’ve always just sold on eBay.  The fees suck, but the buyers are there… that’s kind of what you pay the fees for. 

I also like the ease of getting shipping labels and getting paid.

They only have Hoth Soldiers left but you can stack EXTRA25 with SHIPMAGIC and get four of those sets for $89.

I counted the other day.  I have 238 mini-busts in TEN Detolf cabinets.

I don't have room for an 11th.  So when these are full, I'll have a problem.

At the moment my plan is to stop pre-ordering uglier busts (Endor Han, Bespin Luke) and picking them up when they're clearanced out later because no one wanted them.  But once these cabinets are full...

I've toyed with keeping just OT... I could get rid of a ton of them and still have a collection that way...

I bought a bunch of extras of these around Black Friday or Christmas when they were similarly priced and just don't need more.

The price is right for sure, but I have two Deathtrooper packs and two Shoretrooper packs in a cabinet just waiting to get used somewhere...

Ultimately, there's a huge difference between selling your stuff for fair market value and scalping.  If I know a hot new toy sells for more on eBay and I buy them up, that's kind of ******.

If I have something I've collected and it has more value now than when I bought it, there's nothing weird or wrong or questionable about selling it for it's going rate. 

I love the Stan Solo stuff, I just paid an arm and a leg for a few of the ones I'd missed, and I'm lucky that I got into them when I did.  Even ones I got for $40 a few months ago are $150 or $200 now... Someday when if I sell them, it'll be for whatever they're worth when that day comes. 

As for ditching stuff... 3.75" Star Wars will be the last to go for me.  If I sell those, it means I straight up quit collecting.

I quit collecting ReAction figures about 3 years ago, I have 450 of those I'm getting ready to throw onto eBay. 

If I decide to keep pairing down, Gentle Giant Mini-Busts are on the chopping block next.  The costs have gone up dramatically, and the sculpt quality has gone down dramatically (on some of them at least... some look great still).

Rome... Punisher... he'll be in Ahsoka soon...

I actually found him and a Clone Trooper at Target today… my Amazon order was supposed to be Wednesday, but the Target I was at still had them marked as $13.79, so I bought them in store
and canceled the order.
