Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Military Surplus Anyone?
« on: March 27, 2007, 06:53 AM »
One thing I picked up years ago and haven't done anything with to this point is my Grandfathers' WWII uniforms.  I'm planning to eventually get his ribbons and stick them on.  He commanded a tank destroyer and his uniform as the patches still.  However, the one on the uniform blouse has the tiger with the tank treads in it's mouth, but the treads only have four wheels, an indicator it was not a mainline TD unit, but more of an elite force...however, I've yet to find more information on that and unfortunately he passed away a few years ago.

He never told me much about his expiriences until I came home from overseas when I was about 25, sadly it will be very difficult to find out more about him.  Sorry to head off on a tangent here.

I forgot about the coins....and most are right here on my desk!  I keep two in my wallet to be prepared for such challenges.

Being that I'm only IRR now, I don't even bother carrying them with me.  I'm thinking about getting into collecting them and putting them into a display case, much like the POTF coins are.  I was thinking about picking up as many AFSF coins as I could, being that is all I've got on me now.

Like Matt, I've got mainly stuff I was issued and a Blackhawk Industries tac vest because I didn't like the issued one.  Pretty much for me also, BDU's and a few pairs of boots. 

I've also got a handful of challenge coins, but I can't be sure of where all of them are.

I've got a Saga X wing that is complete and I'm looking to get rid of.  I am also including a POTJ Luke pilot as well.  This was used strictly for display and was either on a shelf or hanging from the ceiling.  As of the last year it has been disassembled and put in a box.

I'm looking for $50 shipped for it, but will always negotiate.  Please PM me because I don't normally cruise down to the modern classifieds.  I'm more than happy to ship overseas, but the shipping will be a little extra.

Collections / Vintage Han Solo run
« on: February 5, 2007, 06:39 AM »
Okay, because I don't want to have to go through and reload everything to village photos from RS, I'm just going to send you to the RS page where I've already got the stuff loaded up.  Enjoy, after about 3 years, this is what I've put together.  You know how it is, you post at one site, you have to post it everywhere.

I've got a vintage Han on each cardback.  Example, Original Han on SW, Bespin Han on ESB, Endor Han ROTJ, Carbonite Han POTF, etc, etc...

Enjoy.

They originate from the books after ROTJ that came out in the early/mid 90's...either Kevin Anderson or Timothy Zahn.

I have finally completed this thing.  It's been almost two years of off and on work and finally I've finished this thing.  Here's a teaser pic for you and follow the for the whole gallery of pics.  The pics range from picking parts, to some painting, and through some of the construction.  Although not all of the constructions is documented.  I know that some of the parts may be mounted a little crooked, I did that on purpose for the most part, but not all of them.  Remember, it's an ugly.

Follow this link for the full gallery.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Do You Still Use (Or Have) a VCR?
« on: December 1, 2006, 07:05 AM »
We have a VCR/DVD combo in the living room.  We also have a PS2, Dish network, and a DVD player.  We haven't even plugged in the VCR since moving and probably won't.  When we need the DVD player, we have the PS2 and DVD.  If we want to record something, we have two TV's with DVR cabability.  So, like I said, we'll probably never plug in the VCR combo.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Looking for ADVICE on selling a collection...
« on: November 11, 2006, 08:23 AM »
Rob, I have sold just about all of my modern stuff in the past couple of years. With the exception of one botched transaction for Ep I stuff, everything went pretty smooth.

I divided all my stuff into lines, POTF2, Ep I, POTJ, and Saga.  The Saga went first when I was selling followed by POTJ, POTF2, and Ep I, which I still have now.  I sold all of the stuff on eBay, knowing I wouldn't get all my money back, but happy to get something for it and get it out of my house.  If you want to sell fastest, put an entire line on ebay with a decent BIN and you may get some people to bite.

Otherwise, I suggest do as someone else (Bill maybe?) suggested and divide the stuff into lots of 10-20 or just donate some of them to a kids program for Christmas.  I'll be donating much of my Ep I to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots.

That sucks man.  Thank God for disability and a pretty good insurance plan from my job.  At least if I got hurt (depending on the injury) I could still work in some capacity.

Watto's Junk Yard / How many softballers do we have here?
« on: September 29, 2006, 02:10 PM »
Lately, I've taken a rather large hiatus from collecting and have r  arely been visiting the net for SW related stuff.  I've spent some good SW money on a couple of softball bats.

I've played a ton of ball, 2-3 nights a week from spring until fall, but until this year never got ate up like I am now about playing.  I can't wait for game night to get here.

Anybody else around here play ball?  Anyone very serious about it?
