The Vintage Collection / Re: 2018 TVC Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna)

If you simply can't justify the price, that's you and your business, nobody else, and I hate that some folks are taking this as a chance to **** on other people's fandom or passion. 

No one needs to buy something at full retail, if they can't afford it. If they pick it up on clearance, they're taking advantage of a market that decided the thing was too expensive or unwanted. That's how it is in collecting. if you have a problem with 'those people' then you have much bigger problems in your life. They're toys. That's all.

Yeah, +1 on this.

I'm lucky to be at a point in my life where I can drop $500 on this and not have to freak out about it.  Not everyone is that lucky or in that spot in life.  I can't shame anyone for waiting and hoping for clearance because of finances.  They are just little plastic toys at the end of the day.

Commander Wolffe was a creation of the CLONE WARS series, and ties in with series director Dave Filoni's fascination with wolves.  He also turned up as one of the three aged clone troopers on the REBELS animated series with Rex and Gregor.

I don't want to get stuck in the tar pit of JTA's many, many character defects, but this is as others have said, simply irresponsible. No one else needs to go into debt, manageable or otherwise, to subsidize someone else's hobby. No one needs to buy something at full retail, if they can't afford it. If they pick it up on clearance, they're taking advantage of a market that decided the thing was too expensive or unwanted. That's how it is in collecting. if you have a problem with 'those people' then you have much bigger problems in your life. They're toys. That's all. Don't skip meals. Don't skip payments to other obligations. Get your priorities straight.

Such a douche move for someone who has $500 to spend and not bat an eye to try and shame someone else into this who may screw themselves by spending $500 they don't have. Just to assure "rich" guy gets to have one

When is The Thing due to arrive? Or Mr Fantastic for that matter?

Did they say anything about doing the rest of the Inhumans?

Was he ever in any of the ST movies? Or is this straight from the Clone Wars show like Rex?

I'm hearing there is some brow beating going on...  telling people they're not real collectors if they don't support it, blah blah blah.  F that noise.  If you can't you can't.  If you simply can't justify the price, that's you and your business, nobody else, and I hate that some folks are taking this as a chance to **** on other people's fandom or passion.

Oh, there is plenty of that going on right now, and I'm sure it wouldn't surprise anyone who is leading the charge. (DouchebagTempleArchives)

I would also throw out there that if the people running these websites want this thing to happen, STOP TALKING ABOUT HOW FAR AWAY THE GOAL IS. Telling people they are "nowhere near" getting this thing is just discouraging. It would be a lot more motivating to focus positively on the progress so far, IMHO.

Wasn't the Castle Greyskull kickstarter kind of a similar slow roll?

I am late to the groan party, but groan. Here comes a $50 aftermarket price.
