If you're thinking of doing a trade with or buying something from Dan, stop thinking--do it now! Really, a perfectly pleasant transaction from beginning to end. Thanks, Dan!

Jim Ward makes the other truckstop prostitutes look like high-priced call girls.

Brad (aka Vader0519) is a pleasure to deal with. He had things I needed for ridiculously great prices, communicated like a champ, sent everything with care, and appears to be an all-around winner.
Thanks Again, Brad!

Doc, I've seen all those older sets newly put out at Target and Walmart the past few days , so you still might find them. I was pretty close to going the HTS route, too, but found the last two ROTS sets I needed (Utapau and Felucia clones) since Saturday.

Up until about a month ago, I was also uninterested in these, and told myself that I didn't need to start another line. Then I bought the Yoda/Chewie/Aayla pack, and have since grabbed everything but the Han/Tauntaun/Chewie, which I haven't found yet. I love these! There's so much potential for this line...The two deluxe sets, though too pricey by about 5 bucks, are great--I'll probably buy another Hoth turret set or two, especially since they can all connect.  Scale-wise, the 3.75" scale AT-AT looks pretty impressive towering over the Hoth set-up.

I might be getting ahead of myself, but I can't wait for the ANH sets, let alone the Order 66 sets coming this fall. Not only do I get a vintage Micro Collection vibe from these, but they also remind me of Galoob Action Fleet battlepacks. 

The only real negative thing I can say about these is that they're a bitch to get out of the packaging!

Several of you guys once agreed that they had the best soup in town.  You used to go there every week.  Now, some folks either broke the rules in the soup store or pissed off the Soup Nazi, and got themselves banned.   Yeah, it sucks cause you're my friends....but darnit, I still want my jambalaya.  

As soon as there's another site that matches the resources of RS, I'll abandon that place and go where my friends all went....but it just hasn't happened, so I just can't join the hater brigade.

Forgive me for being blunt, but it's this  mentality that keeps people like Phillip Wise in business. If nobody bought "jambalaya" from him based on how poorly he treats people, he wouldn't have so much power in the SW collecting hobby.  This stance seems unapologetically selfish, and if you're fine with that, well, great. 

Rather than hang on to something rotten to the core just because it has more "resources" , why not be part of building something better at any of the other fine sites, like here, GH, Yakface, etc.? I don't post in any other forums--I mostly just read through threads at work--but there is such a clear difference between Rebelscum and most of the other collecting sites. This place has heart and soul, and I would proudly point it out to any of my friends as representative of my hobby.

Both at Rebelscum and at the formerly (though not for years) indispensable tF.N, I have watched Philip Wise spread out like a cancer across the hobby. I don't begrudge anybody from making a buck, but being a Grade-A dick is unforgivable. I could never support somebody that lousy, regardless of what they may have that I want.  Whether he had anything to do with "rigging" the FC President thing or not is beside the point--the biggest issue is how he treats people, and the negative impact it has on SW collecting.
