Watto's Junk Yard / Everything eBay! Scams, questions, etc...
« on: January 29, 2003, 11:19 AM »
Ok as some of you know I am having a problem with a seller. I posted the info in the vintage section. Well anyway Paypal close the case stating that the time limit of 30 has exceeded. I paid Dec 10 and filed the claim Jan 24. I know that 30  days are up but what really is pissing me off is the fact that this seller delayed me by emailing excusses until I was feed up, then proceeded to email saying the package was sent. Well guess what ,that ate up the 30 days so now because I beleived this person and waited for my package and until he would no longer email me. I am SOL.

 This is crap. If these sellers know the system they can esentally screw you with little or no consequencess. I am getting very frustrated with these auctions and internet payment sites. If they were not so convienent and fast I would say to hell with them all but you are kind of between a rock and a hard place.

 What else is there to be done to resolve these types of situations short of a baseball bat. I filed a claim with Ebay but the seller is no longer registered. He will not reply to emails. What is next sending a certified mail but that can always be ignored.

 I had to let that out. I am still pissed and I think I will give the A hole a call since the only good thing that I got from this was his adress and phone #

I need some help from anyone who knows tricollectables. I paid for an auction on 12/10 I never received my item and when I emailed tehm I got no reply I have been emailing and the last one they posted feedback for me on ebay. Positive but still would not answer any email and my items still have not arrived. Now they are no longer registered users but have no neg feedback either.

Does anyone know of them and can offer any help?

Thanks in advance

The Prequel Trilogy / Just a thought
« on: January 24, 2003, 09:04 AM »
 we all know that at some time the Jedi will be wiped out wwith the exception of Obi-Wan and Yoda but do you think there is a possiability that some maybe only a few would also follow Anakin into the empire?? There is the chance that some are disenchanted with the jedi order.

 The Royal Guard possably could have dark jedi couldn't it? maybe not I am not familiar with there origins off the top of my head. Also Nikto is that the same Nikto from Jabbas palace?  T

Any of you guys collect master of the universe?

I was cleaning out some toy boxes at my dads house and I found some old guys, the problem is I don't really collect them and don't remember alot about them from my youth. I was wondering if they are complete, proper names to them and so forth. Is there a site that has a good archive.

Watto's Junk Yard / Collecting, how did you get hooked?
« on: January 3, 2003, 09:33 AM »
Just curous how did you all get started in collecting?

Me I had a number of figs and ships when I was a kid but never thought of them more than old toys until a few years ago. About the same time as EP1 I was getting a tattoo done by a guy who I have known for years. Well we got to talking and he said he was picking up some new figs. He casually asked if I had any old ones. I said sure. Well after a while we talked and he dug out some he had at the shop and here I am today with a room full.

For me it brought back alot of those childhood memories of gazing at the backs of the cards trying to figure out how to spend my allowance now when ever a new find shows up at the door I feel like a kid again ripping open the box to see whats inside. For me it isn't a monetary investment it is more as an investment in my youth.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / 96 Chewbacca
« on: January 2, 2003, 02:01 PM »
I have a few questions about the collector series Chewbacca.
 It came out in 97 but some were released in a 96 box. Was this fig supposed to come out a year early and does anybody know the ratio of 96 versus97?  Also was the figs the same with only the printing error on the box?
