Vintage Kenner / Re: My Vintage collection pics.
« on: August 14, 2006, 04:30 PM »
Business has been quite slow the last month but thats not the reason for sale really.
I had to sell them to fund some new lines for the store without breaking into my other funds.
I'm using the money to start stocking some of the new saga waves:
Wave 3 Battle of Coruscant
Wave 5 Battle of Tatooine
Wave 6 Battle of Endor
Wave 2 Battle of Genosis
And also to stock some of the Marvel legends and expand on our movie maniacs lines aswell as some other things.

To be honest I'm not really all that disapointed to see them go.
They were a nice talking point in the store for the few vintage collectors who visit but most people didnt really appreciate what they were and just asked why they werent for sale individually.
I personally wouldnt have displayed them in my personal collection as I'm more into collecting Sideshow and Gentle Giant pieces and they'd have looked out of place and to be fair there not the most attractive figures.
The main reason I started collecting them was as a hobbie and I had a bit of extra cash at the time. Once the collection was complete so was the hobbie and I wasnt really to bothered about displaying them, before i opened the business they where just bagged up in a box anyway. Hopefully they've gone to someone who will appreciate them but I think judging by the winners feedback he'll be reselling.

Thats gonna be one hell of a Jango when its finished Glassman.
Hows yours coming along Phurby I was realy looking forward to seeing that one.

Thanks for your help, I've decided to go with
Wave 3 Battle of Coruscant
Wave 5 Battle of Tatooine
Wave 6 Battle of Endor
Wave 2 Battle of Genosis

I'll also be getting a case of 6 vehicles when there released and the battle of naboo and the escape from cloud city waves..

The guy who wanted to collect changed his mind said it was too far to travel.
Havent recieved any payment yet though  >:( the buyer seems to have good feedback though so hopefully there shouldnt be any problems.
Once payment's recieved I'll be ordering a few cases of the the Saga waves for the store.

I wonder when or if they'll do troopers.  I would love to see a stormtrooper, biker scout, sandtrooper and snowtrooper oh and clones.
I'm pretty sure they'll do at least one OTC Trooper and one type of Clone.
I'm guessing we'll see a Stormie (Exclusive could be sandtrooper accsesories :D ) and an Ep2 style clone eventually.

Well he hasnt got back to me yet anyway so I'll wait and see what happens.
They're currently only £310 ($589.21) and with only 2 days 10 hours to go I'll be suprised if they increase by £400.

Well I've just had a message from a guy askng if Ill take £700 cash ($1,333.20) and he'll come and collect them to save me posting etc. Its pretty much what my reserve price was so I think I'll probably accept it.

Thankfully this bust is of no interest to me.

Vintage Kenner / Green lightsaber Vader????

I was just watching "That 70's show" and Eric had a "Darth Vader with rare and deadlier green lightsaber" :-\. Does this actually exist as its not something I've ever heard of until then.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions

HAHA! These are the sort of idiots I hate.
You see them all the time at second hand sales in the U.K trying to sell figures with arms missing etc for around $50

Hi, as some of you may know from when I post in other ares of the forum I own a comic book stlye shop in the U.K (only we don't sell comic lol).

Within the next couple of weeks I will be starting to stock the Saga figures but I'm unsure of which waves to stock. I'm probably going to be stocking 3-4 waves to start with so if you can please help me and let me know which Waves are the most popular/the best I'd be very greatful.

Well there now on Ebay† :'( Item number is 260017039902 if anyone wants to see how they go, there on U.K Ebay as well I'm in the U.K. Prices tend to be quite alot higher on the U.K market than the U.S one I've noticed.
To be honest I'm not really too disapointed.
For me the fun was collecting them, searching for a bargain or a badly listed figure and the fun you have watching those ebay auctions in the last minutes is great.
I think my best find was the last 17 R2D2 other than litlte yellowing on the sticker the est of its in excellent condition totally mint head and the legs etc are really white no yellowing at all.
At the minute there just in display in my store and really I could use the space and the money to start stocking the new Star Wars figures so they've got to go.
