Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Rebelscum Spam Mail? WTF???

Okay - we're going to go ahead and reopen this for the time being - since there's been a new barrage of spam and complaints and potentially new angles to the conversation...

Well I broke down and bought a second one today.  I'm still not sure I can justify buying a ton of these with the Clone Comander, Pilot, and Tank Gunner floating around - plus with the SA clone on the horizon.  Maybe I'll grab half a dozen or so...

Maybe this would be a good time to start drinking then?


(either way, good speech)

Should be interesting to see if I got it at my work email on Monday - the one that they were supposed to remove from the list.

Either way, I'm going to go ahead and lock this and merge it with the other one.  If the other guys decide that they want to reopen the larger thread in light on this recent spamming, we'll do that - but until then, the word is that we're going to take a break from the rebelscum bashing.

It would be something else that's superfluous that's for sure... I buy star wars as a hobby, an extra.  I would never put it before home ownership or anything like that.

So, probably some other toy line... I'm also considering buying a complete Edo Period suit of Samurai Armor - I'd probably already have that.

Two dogs is more than I can handle.

Besides, the cost of a kid would mean no more SW collecting.  I've got my priorities here!

Yeah.  The All Caps thing was the part that made me think maybe if I write her back she won't be able to resist replying again.

I loved this line, and despite the higher pricepoint wish that they would continue the line and just do each and every one of the figures released from 1977 to 1983.

Revenge of the Sith / Super Rare Royal Guard Auction....

I decided to bring this thread over here because I'm having fun with it and, would rather discuss it here as it unfolds.
This super-rare piece of nothing, ended at 13 dollars, and the reserve wasn't even met.

So, before the auction ended I basically emailed the seller and called her out on the bogus auction (while giving a little politness just incase it was an honest mistake) and yesterday I receieved the following reply:

Quote
FYI, I HAVE A RED GUARD FORM ROTS IN HIS OWN BOX WITH THE RED GUARD ON THE BACK SAYING SOMETHING TOTALLY different from THE ONE THAT HAS THE BLUE GUARD ON THE BACK. SO BEFORE YOU POINT FINGERS AND ACCUSE SOMEONE FOR MISLEADING PEOPLE DO YOUR HOME WORK.

FOR YOU NEW STAR WARS FANS WHO JUST STARTED TO FIND OUT ABOUT STAR WARS BECAUSE OF EPISODES 1 2 AND 3. THE BLUE AND RED GUARDS ARE TO DIFFERENT CHARACTERS. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME THAT JUST CHANGED FROM BLUE TO RED OVER THE YEARS.

This clearly warranted further response - so the last email I sent said the following:

Quote
FYI, I have been a Star Wars fan for over 20 years. I have been collecting Star Wars toys for over 10 years now. All of the Red Guards come on the SAME EXACT CARD BACK as the Blue Guards. They are a variation in terms of packaging, and not two separate figures as evidenced by the fact that BOTH blue and red come as number III-23. I am fully aware that the Blue Guards become the Red Guards in the film. Yet this doesn't change the fact that you don't seem to understand what Hasbro is putting out and what's rare and what's not - because your item is NOT any type of error or variation, it is the standard, regular, ordinary release of the Red Royal Guard.

If you do infact have a Red Guard with a Red Guard pictured on the back, which I do not believe you when you say you do, THAT is the rare one and would be a production error, and not a variation. I know because I now have 7 Red Guards and 4 Blue Guards, and every single one of them came on a card with the BLUE Guard pictured on the back - just like your 'very rare' item in the auction.

Next time save your high-and-mighty accusations about being a prequel-era fan for some other schmoe and enjoy the 13 bucks you just ripped someone off for.

Anyone heard of any version of this thing with any picture other than the BLUE one on the back?  I sure haven't...

Developing...

I looked for almost a year for a Lando General cape to complete a figure I had... Eventually I just gave up and bought a complee one, and then sold my incomplete one to re-coup some of the difference.

This thread IS locked.

Well that's good then.

But someone refresh my memory, when did leia appear as a hologram that wasn't a foot tall?  We already have this figure, it came with Artoo Detoo one time, and was correctly scaled at that juncture.

I'm getting tired of the exclusives being rehashed junk.

If it's a special exclusive deal it should be a special figure - someone not made before or a serious twist on something, not just a painted silver or translucent repack.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: How big is your army?
« on: April 8, 2005, 10:22 AM »
Well I managed (through my gf being at WM tonight) to get 2 more Clones and a Wookie Warrior.  The army gains a little ground I guess.  Not much though.

I'm more concerned with C3 right now, than army building.  I do want those higher # figures though.  Damn!

The Sneak Preview Wookie Warrior?  Or are the 41-44 figures showing up already?
