Hey all you noble collectors out there...how about this for an idea?

Every one in this forum has complained about not finding this or that...then another chimes in and says I have seen twenty...

I would be willing to search and hunt for not only what I need but for what you need. Can we create a code of honor between us that states we'll help the collector in need? I would be more than willing to buy the figures should I come across them in the store and sell them to those in need for cost+tax+shipping...any one caught scalping would be ignored.

Cash transactions made simple...save receipts because if your buyer flakes out then simply return it...nothing lost

I would love to help out those guys in the UK...they are so depraived of the figures....

I could even start a web site where if you find something to offer at cost, you can lock in the trade or sale on line...like an e-bay but no money to be made...

C'mon guys show some compassion for the collector...stick it to the scalpers....

That is a great idea, something that I've thought about doing lately. One thing is I would always be the guy buying since I can never find anything new. And you just really never know or can trust anyone. I'd hate to send a money order out for $20 for some figs and then the guy turns around and keeps the money and then runs. But then again if I get real desperate i might try the gamble. It's a great idea that I will give some good thought into. Nice to know that there is at least one decent person out there. :)

If you all would keep it clean and honest in the Classifieds section, we wouldn't be needing this. Don't be an opportunist!


As for figure-finding, Yakface has a pretty good Store Reports section, that I found very helpful during POTJ.
