Watto's Junk Yard / Stupid Criminals
« on: May 1, 2008, 05:06 PM »
Do we already have a stupid criminals thread?  Point it out to me if we do.

I saw this today and had to re-post it.

Man Accused of Trying to Cash Check for $360,000,000,000.00

07:59 PM CDT on Wednesday, April 30, 2008

From Staff Reports

A man has been accused of attempting to pass a $360 billion check, which he claims was given to him by his girlfriend’s mother to start a record business, Fort Worth police said.

Charles Ray Fuller, 21, of Crowley, was arrested on April 22 on an accusation of forgery, police said.

Charles Ray Fuller

Police responded to a report of a man attempting to pass the check about 4 p.m. that day at the Chase bank in the 8600 block of South Hulen Street, Fort Worth police Lt. Paul Henderson said.

The personal check was not made out to Mr. Fuller and when the bank contacted the check owner, the woman said she did not write a check for $360 billion.

Mr. Fuller was also accused of unlawful carrying of a weapon and possession of marijuana, Lt. Henderson said. He may also face a theft charge in Crowley.

Lt. Henderson said he did not know if Mr. Fuller and his girlfriend were still together.

I should have the coins available too on the DST's - asking $50 for each dozen troops, plus about $5 to ship.

That's only a hair over $4 per figure.  All are like new, and complete.

Buy both and I'll pay for the shipping.

PM me if interested.

Thanks.   8)

Watto's Junk Yard / 2008 DVD Releases Thread

After slowing down for a long time, I've jumped into Blu-ray and am sort of back to buying movies.

Modern Classifieds / I've got some DVD's to part with.

I've gone Blu-ray.  So I'm upgrading slowly on some of my movies - and I figured I'd offer the DVD's that I replace up here.

So, all discs are scratch free, or brand new and still sealed.

The Omen (the new one) – brand new, factory sealed - $5.00
Rounders - $4.00
Top Gun - $4.00
Bram Stoker’s Dracula - $4.00
The Devil’s Rejects, 2-Disc Director’s cut – brand new, factory sealed - $10.00
Pirates of the Caribbean, the Curse of the Black Pearl, 2-Disc Collector’s Edition - $5.00

Harry Potter films -
-   Sorcerer’s Stone, 2-Disc - $5.00
-   Chamber of Secrets, 2-Disc - $5.00
-   Prisoner of Azkaban, 2-Disc - $10.00
-   Goblet of Fire, 2-Disc - $10.00
   Or all 4 for $25

Corpse Bride – brand new, factory sealed - $10.00
The Fountain – brand new, factory sealed - $10.00
Order of the Phoenix, 2-Disc - $10.00

$2.00 to ship one via Media Mail - $0.50 for each one after that.  Or if you want to have them shipped with something faster we'll figure that out on the side.

I'll be adding to this periodically.


I'm seriously considering selling off the carded collection again for lack of space.

As stated above I believe there are around 850 pieces.  It's about 700-750 basic carded figures, plus about 90 deluxe packs, plus about 25 Exclusives in Star Cases.

I do not have straight repacks, but I do have things that were never on the card before, or things that have enough of a paint change to make them into a different troop or soldier or character. There are some pictures in my sig that would probably show a lot of the items available. I have some of the older variants too... long saber figures, Pop-up Artoo with the saber on the wrong side... open hand Han, etc...

Serious inquiries only please, I'm hoping to get about $5 or so per figure, about $8 to $10 per deluxe, and about $12 each for the exclusives. That becomes a pretty big number pretty fast - in essence I'm looking for nearly $4000 to $5000 for the set. I know that sounds like a lot, but I doubt a set like this becomes available very often, so I think that near retail wouldn't be so unreasonable.

At present time I am only interested in selling this as a lot. It would most likely be a complete beast to ship, so buying a one way ticket and renting a truck to drive back to where you live might be the best way to go but we could figure that out if we're able to strike a deal.

The last time I posted this, I received a lot of offers from people who wanted to offer me $1 or $2 per figure so they could break it up and re-sell it, I'm really not interested in those types of conversations this time through.

So, please PM me if you are seriously interested and let's discuss things


I've got them all except the Helmetless Vader.

This includes EE's new ARC Trooper.

All of them are loose and in great shape, complete but a little dusty.

I don't even know what a fair price for this would be but by my count there are 35, 7" unleashed figures in there.

Would $300 be too much to ask?  That'd be a hair over $8.00 per.  They were originally $15.00 each (sometimes more), and that ARC Trooper just cost me $25.00.  I'm open to any reasonable offers.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Here are some pictures, it's all of these plus that Entertainment Earth ARC Trooper:





Pay attention to the opening title credits.  They were done by several co-workers and I at Reel FX Creative Studios.  I animated roughly the first half of it, and a few cards in the second half.  It's the first time I've had the opportunity to work on something that has a major theatrical release.

I can't say if the movie will be great or not, but if you make it all the way through to the closing credits, I was responsible for those too - even though they're not as big a deal as the opening.

Anyway, we're pretty proud of the opening, so I thought I'd toot my own horn and share.

Thanks in advance.

There is an auction for 26 empty Kenner Baggies on eBay right now.  I'd like to win this auction and destroy the bags to keep them from becoming fake re-seals and further screwing up the baggie market.


Everyone who wants to help, please send contributions to Paypal address

I'll bid up to whatever amount we raise - and I'll keep that number secret until afterwards. If we don't use all of the money, everyone will get a proportional refund from whatever is left. 

If we don't win the auction, everyone will get a full refund.  I've never given a refund though - if Paypal fees aren't returned when I issue a refund, your refund might be 3% smaller than whatever you donated.

If I'm able to win, I'll take some pictures of them being destroyed!

Tell all your friends - even if we don't win, at very least we can drive the price up and make it less profitable for whichever scumbag decides to make fakes out of them.

Who's with me?

Spread the word - we've got less than 2 days to raise as much as we can.

Need an original B-Wing Pilot/AT-ST Driver/Leia Poncho weapon to complete a nice minty B-Wing Pilot I ended up with...

Anyone able to help out?

The only hitch is I need it to be original - no repros please.


Vintage Kenner / Slave I Ramp Question
« on: July 25, 2007, 08:23 PM »
So I've got two different Slave I ramps...  both are black, but one is glossy one is flat.

Both are stamped 1014 C 017 - 02

Any ideas if one of these has been painted or if they came both ways?  And if they're both legit, is there a more desirable one to collect?

Vintage Kenner / Reproduction Sticker Sheets?
« on: July 16, 2007, 03:03 PM »
This may have been covered but does anyone know somewhere where I can find reproduction sticker sheets for vehicles?  All the ones on eBay are overseas it seems.  They don't need to be actual stickers, just images of them at the right size... I can print and cut and glue myself...
