this is a bit tricky as its actually two characters talking to each other plus there's more complexity to it, but i wanna see if anyone gets it first...

character #1: "that guy's wise!"
character #2: "modern for sure!"

Had to do a search on that one!


correct, you're up next! :)

Muftak, again I've gotta say some really outstanding work. Your penchant for detail is amazing, especially in the anteroom near the detention cell. A nice nod to the vintage era with the background. How'd you go about making the computer console? And what's the next step for the Death Star? Keep up the great work!

what do u think this guy is thinking when he makes the reseal... "hmm letsee the tear mark on the card is ye big, so lets go with this bubble.... sure the figure doesn't fit, but it will look great!" what a waste of time on the guy's part...

Saga '02-'04 / Re: 3 Toughest SAGA Items to Find
« on: October 4, 2003, 03:20 AM »
I can only add to this based on what I've been actively searching for.

1.) Imperial Officers (either variant)
2.) Ephant Mon
3.) Acklay
4.) Theed Hangar Darth Maul (one that isn't damaged in some way, u couldn't imagine how many times I've found one of these and either the saber is broke, or the bubble has been torn open)

Hi Dr. Nick?  I watch The Simpsons but I don't understand why that reference is applicable here.  

It's applicable because you titled this thread as  "Hi everybody" just the thing Dr. Nick says before entering a room :)

yes, yet again hasbro contradicts themselves. taking a look at the size of the tactical display, this item could easily fit on a standard single figure card. has anyone ever noticed how huge those bubbles are? just make the desk and "glass screen" two seperate pieces and you could stick the whole thing in there and it probably would still weigh less than Ephant Mon did....

Vintage Kenner / Best vintage deals you've gotten
« on: September 24, 2003, 09:22 PM »
I couldn't find a thread talkin about this so I thought I would bring it up. What are some of the greatest vintage deals you've gotten over the years, something to give us hope for the future. There was a time when I could get a great deal on something on ebay almost everyday, now i find it quite hard, but letsee what you've gotten that could be deemed a "greal deal!"

Here's some for me...

1.) Loose, mint, and complete (LMC) blue saber Jedi Luke for $15 at a time when this guy was going for $50 easy in that condition
2.) Loose, near-mint and complete w/ box Death Star Space Station at of all things a baseball card convention. EDIT: hehe oops forgot to mention I got the set for $50.
3.) All 3 POTF mini-rigs, LMC for $30 in 2 seperate deals on ebay
4.) 12 LMC figs for $70 that equated in getting me a great EV-9D9 and Green snake Yoda for less than $6 a piece!

Saga '02-'04 / Re: First Look at Jabba at GH
« on: September 23, 2003, 02:29 AM »
Well said Matt. As JesseJames and I often talk about, Hasbro has a penchant for doing things half-assed. And this Jabba if it is indeed just a repainted Jabba Glob is the icing on the cake. The Big H is in a process of downgrading, doing things in such a fashion that a few years ago they never did such as lack of basic 6 pts of articulation on Cinema Scene (Screen Scene) figures. This rehashing molds to make "new" figures is weird in another light too as I think of it. Remember all of those Tatooine Luke's we got in the POTF2 days? All were new sculpts, well the POTD Luke was a bit of a rehash, but the carded ones were all new sculpts. Though nothing spectacular in the sculpts, Hasbro put the effort there, nowadays we get garbage like an Ep1 KiAdi Mundi with a new arm and paintjob and wa-la its an Ep2 KiAdi or a repainted Ep1 Yoda. There's a time and place for a rehash of a figure, when its an army builder or droid whose figure has been perfected such as the R2/R3/R4 units or Imperial Officers.

By the by, Hasbro I believe does owe us. Why? Because we buy the damn SW stuff and keep the line marginally profitable, it sure as hell isn't the kids and their p's who keep buying stuff.

But thats just my opinion, I could be wrong.... but then again I'm not  ;)

Good thing they decided to go into this half assed, its not like people have been asking for this for years or anything.

Half-assed? Is that what the H in Hasbro stands for? I understand cost cutting procedures when necessary, and so far I won't judge on the Jabba, but as always they do things half-assed where it isnt warranted and where precedent has been set for a full-assed job. One day perhaps they will see the light...

Vintage Kenner / Re: Mysterious Vintage @ Amazon?
« on: September 21, 2003, 12:05 AM »
doing a quick google search on the company DISTRIBUTOYS, INC a Chicagoland based company which is listed as the "manufacturer" of the figures it appears that they are a distributor of supplies to toy manufacturers as well as a wholesaler of assorted items including toys and books with previous items for sale on amazon. the likely scenario is that they came across a large amount of loose vintage figures and are more than willing to sell em via amazon as they can set their own price. take note at the good guys collection, they have only 10 sets available which certainly indicates that they are of a limited supply. these must be originals as well if this sale is to continue and if they were repros hasbro and lfl would be all over them like syrup and pancakes.  though at the sametime they never mention if the weapons/accessories that come with the figures are original or repro so that could be iffy right there. but its an interesting concept for sure, but $30 for a jedi luke, c-3p0 and rebel soldier is a bit stretching when u can get all 3 easily for half that on ebay
