You never know, but the old EU timeline for Revan was ~4000 BBY while the article mentions "hundreds" of years before the Skywalkers.  You could easily make a trilogy out of all the KOTOR stuff, especially if you include the MMO story lines with the Sith Emperor.  I'm not sure if they would want to rehash a video game or just put a new spin on Revan, much like what has happened with Thrawn going from Legends to canon.

One thing I would like to see would be some sort of series that shows the lineage from Darth Bane to Darth Sidious.  I doubt you could effectively do this in the movies since the Sith were hidden for 1,000 years so you really can't have the Sith vs. Jedi confrontations after Bane establishes the rule of two.  You could probably do it in a series of books or comics though.

I have a hard time finding any mercy for the guy either.  It isn't like he stole some POTF2 carded figures.  He stole a freaking Rocket Firing Boba Fett among other rare items.  We are talking hundreds of thousands of dollars in collectables.  He also stole from people who considered him a friend and invited him into their homes.  Sansweet said he knew him for 20 years.  I would be pretty pissed, even at this point if I were Steve.  I have a hard enough time keeping track of my collection on excel that I can't even imagine having to re-inventory everything like Steve had to do.  I don't think the article really goes into to detail as to what was stolen besides the Fett, but I could hazard a guess that some of the stuff would be really hard to replace.  Finding a rocket firing Fett isn't an easy task.

I would say the easiest answer for the tesseract changing hands are the Skrull.  Anyone of them could have infiltrated Stark's facility and made off with it.  We really don't know how long the Skrull were living on the hidden labratory.

Got my email from Haslab as well.  Also a Friday delivery.  I'm glad I have the day off of work so I don't have to go pick it up somewhere due to the signature requirement.  I am also glad this thing is already paid for ahead of time.  I really have no clue what I'm going to do with it, but it was just too cool of an item to pass on.

King Kong Bundy of WWF/WWE fame has also passed away.

Man, I guess I should list mine.  I have been selling off 3 3/4" carded figures.  I had no clue any of them was worth anything.

Just wanted to see if there was any interest here in the Mara Jade Signature Edition saber hilt from Master Replicas.  It has only been out of the box twice.  Once when I received it and now to take pictures to sell it.  The signature plate has been attached to the plaque stand.  It comes with the original COA as well as the black storage box and the cardboard shipping box.  I figured I would post in the collecting forums before going to ebay.  Right now I'm trying to gauge the value based on completed ebay auctions so I don't have a price in mind yet.  Just wanted to see if there was any interest.  The edition number is 115 of 750.

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but listening to the Star Wars Action News podcast, I believe these were made in a similar process to the Gentle Giant Jumbo figures.  They 3D scanned an existing vintage figure and went from there.  That is why they are a bit off on size.

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2019 Retro Kenner Tarkin with Board Game
« on: February 21, 2019, 06:43 AM »
When I heard the name of the game I thought of the POTF2 version, too!

Having seen this set?  And knowing that the Retro Collection will likely be LIMITED to the 6 figures AND exclusive?  This line doesn't seem like as much of an inherently bad idea as it did to me yesterday.  And the TBS and TVC reveals gave me a glimmer of hope, too.

Making a Kenner style Tarkin is actually a great idea, since he was always a notable absence from the Kenner line.

So the bulk of the line are the six figures we saw from Toy Fair that will be at Target?  That makes it an easier proposition to pick up the set.  The board game I would definitely get just for the figure.  I think I may still have the POTF2 version of game in a closet somewhere.

For exclusives, I hope they go the route of the board game and make OT characters that never got a vintage sculpt.

I think the line is neat from a nostalgia standpoint.  I remember the rereleases way back when POTF2 was starting.  I too would be worried about vintage fakes now.  I love the look of these, but I have the vintage counterparts loose and I have been trying to sell of my carded collection, so I can't see myself picking these up.

Now the Tarkin figure on the other hand, that I would like to have just because he never got made in the vintage line.  The new playset is calling my name as well.  However, I really want to downsize my collection.  It is a daunting task.  I have only managed to sell my orange card figures and my purple card SOTE figures.  I have had a listing for the green card POTF2 and my freeze frame figures and haven't gotten any hits yet.  I have so much in totes that I really can't bring my self to buy something new even though I really like the look of it.  Of course I foolishly signed up to buy the Barge...the playset lover in me just couldn't pass it up once it was fully funded.  If they decide to make a Death Star playset next through Haslab, I think I will just pass out.

I love the look of the set.  I wonder how much different it is from the old Cloud City set.  I haven't looked at the old one for a while.  I haven't even had a chance to put together the big Hoth set that I got who knows how long ago now.  I really do love the idea of these playsets for lego.  It is what Hasbro is missing out on creating.  The Death Star lego set was a dream come true.  The vintage Death Star playset was always my favorite toy growing up.

Collector's Tips / Re: Selling a Collection
« on: September 25, 2018, 06:48 AM »
Just wondering if anyone has any more success in this realm.  I have purchased anything new in quite some time except for the Doctor Aphra set.  My collecting has been limited to legos, books and comics and the hallmark ornaments.  I think I am ready to unload all my Hasbro stuff, but it is such a daunting task.  I have just about every carded figure from the POTF2 Orange cards to somewhere through the vintage collection figures when they did the convention exclusive set that has the Jar Jar in Carbonite.  Not sure what year I ended, but it would have been just after the Disney sale since I knew there was no way I could keep up any more.  I have a ton of vehicles as well as pretty much every Hasbro 12" figure.  At this point, it has all been in boxes for so long taking up space.  I just want to try to break even with what I paid for everything.  Can you even get $4/figure for the old POTF2 stuff or $20 for a Hasbro 12" figure these days?  I just need to move on and declutter.  I have seen a few people in Star Wars groups use Facebook market place to list stuff.  I may contact one of them to see how it goes.
