jg: "do not intend to ask you more than"
-no harm done; but if i do send one of each variant, do you have a preference re which ones you want sent loose & which remain in package?

Well, in that case (if you feel so generous! ;) ) I would prefer if the variant stay in package. :D
In any case I never intended to exploit you too much. I will be more than happy with just one of each collection in wave 3. :)

-ferengi acquisition rule 242: "more is good... all is better" :)

"prefer if the variant stay in"
-actually i don't know that either version is "the" variant, so how's this: the non-metallic weathered & olive rider are unopened, while white & metallic-unweathered are loose so b'jr can have their unwanted trifi & atrt partners, sound good? :)
meanwhile got 2 more b4 offer expired: obijsf/arc and anijsf/trifi- how many is that total? :) so ltb & s43, how'd you do baggin "free" mvs?
oh goody, it's been rescheduled (http://tatteredcover.com/NASApp/store/IndexJsp;jsessionid=avZpRvx0-p-f?s=storeevents&eventId=314034) :crazed:

VT: I didn't get any of them, I went to 2 targets and all I saw was Landspeeders and Sandcrawlers at both so I didn't even bother. So if you ended up with more than enough for everyone else I'd gladly take one of each, and if there aren't extra variants I'd settle for a picture of them. LMK.

Thanks,

Didn't end up with any MV's cause we all came down with colds and weren't able to go over to Target. I may look in a week or so to see if they have any at least marked down or even retail priced.

If you can make happy both me and b'jr it is perfect! :D
Could you just reverse the order? The white & metallic-unweathered unopened and the non-metallic weathered & olive rider loose?
In any case I am happy if b'jr gets the trifi & atrt :) I usually try to avoid to have doubles, but I know b'jr thinks differently! ;)

-so you Failed, MIZ-ER-UH-BLEE!!" - zek, DS9's "the nagus" :p
i just turned all the xtras over to b'jr today (during tea at fs; fashots comin soon :cool: ) so
tell you guys wot: if no other foreigner asks for a set (and why haven't more axed i wonder? oh well), we'll hook ya up & send along w/stuff yer getting from deesale :) one of each variant is in the six i've set aside, so whoever wants which, speak up first :)
also turned over to him several cd baggins mentioned in posts 966-8, 970 & 977 above, so some of those (towa tei, morrissey, depeche, eskimo, Novocaine etc) is spoken for,all you snoozer-loozers ;)
fogrot to mention: i'd also bagged a slave1/tyderum 2-pak cuz kinda liked boba minifig. but i didn't want the rest of toy (slve, tyd & emp minifig) so waited to show b'jr in case he wanted it. was gonna xchange it for yet another wave3 if he didn't want, but he did, so now i get miniboba and xtra stuff ain't goin to waste :)

jg: "Could you just reverse"
-maybe, but since i just turned over xtras to b'jr they might all be open now. however, the reason i selected & opened the ones for you i did is to provide you w/the Best Possible paintjobs i could find on all six ships (actually eight counting the variants). if you're opening them all anyway it won't matter, right? lmk :)
so, if you got the best paintjobs i could pick out, naturally the 2nd best are reserved for ltb & s43; why? cuz the further an ambassador travels from home (don't know if i mms or mvs can be validly considered "ambassadors", but i do ;) ), the more impeccable his presentation should be :cool:

pkg from tojo just arrived, 2+ years in the making and worth the wait! will list total available contents soon, meanwhile here's what i'm keeping one each of:
galactica
basestar
cylon
viper (all 4 a bit bigger than i was hoping, but still like :) )

tomy (aside from maybe atte base, won't be keeping diorama elements from these in case anyone wants)-
atte & its carrier (loose rear gun on latter but otherwise Great; meanwhile paintjob & dull edges make former a bit too bug-like)
owenbike (don't want anifig rider)
e2 slave1 (redundant w/my mm but since paintjob & sculpt are different i'll keep; main hull guns are loose on mine; anyone else's?)
e2 jsf (nice flame effects, tho i'll prolly cut em off anyway)

furuta-
ent-e (too bad one this cool's the chase; shoulda been lame-o galileo :p )
ent-c (love the colors & saucer details)
pasteur (love cream base color & detailing on sphere & hull)
prometheus (underacheiving detail, esp. compared to above 3)
jemhadar (feh underside contours & paint, but Love rich blue-purp color)
kazraider (love colors' santa-fe ceramic connotation)
phoenix (hinged nacelles?? nice surprise)
borgcube (clever translucent-green w/thin black-metallic spray that yields Great lighting effect convinced me; very Endgame)

romando, both mini (1/7000) and mm sized-
nx01 (mm-sized And more detail than jl version, so may give up my latter!)
nite-glo ent-e
mini saratoga (has the side guns!)
k'tinga aka d7 update (odd but true-to-model colors)

considering keeping:
romando-
mini ktinga (redundant to above one, but sure is well done)
mini pasteur
mini stargazer
mini nite-glo 1701
nite-glo 1701
nite-glo nx01
nite-glo & regular mini nx01s
1/7000 ds9 (all parts included w/other 1/7000 ships might customize automated weapon array from these, since full assembly looks to be badly warped anyway)
ent-e (don't want sloppy saucer, but faithful details under saucer-sep surface!)

furuta-
excelsior (good, but romando & mm versions already cover this ground fine)
ent refit (hate flat upper hull, but like hull & pylon paint details, maybe i'll use latter on a custom)
ent-b (same, but also so damn Big)
ferengi (like painted upper-hull windows, but otherwise smaller mm's just as good)
grissom (mm's just as good, but kinda like saucer details)
runabout (different colors & sculpting, but bulkier & not as cool as mm version)

record cold here this week, so these should keep me busy w/plenty of indoor fun while i await replies to above post :)

Saw a few clearances the past few days. Nothing super great but I did see a Han Solo Bust on sale at Media Play, originally $45.00 (I believe) but clearanced to $28. Also saw tons of Unleashed Obi-Wans, Anakins and Assajs for a total of $11.00 apiece as well as the 500th Vaders reduced to $13. Tons of lightsabers on clearance as well as many Force Battlers and mini-figures.

Also sighted multiple Die-Cast X-wing and Troop Transporter, but they were not on clearance.

Give a shout-out if you so desire any and I will do my best to obtain them.

jg: "'best paintjobs', wonderful"
s43: "2nd best paint jobs"
-in interest of full disclosure, i spose i should qualify that by saying the ones i picked for myself are The best paintjobs. so how do i justify saying jg's are the best and s43/ltb's are 2nd best? the same way contest organizers justify distinguishing between a "grand prize" and a "first prize" :crazed: then again, these "bests" are culled from the 30 or so we bagged, each of which were in turn carefully picked from the dozen or so available at every store stop b'jr & i made (and we made ~2 dozen stops in the course of baggin these). of course, at that level of discrimination "best" becomes mostly subjective in that, since no mm is perfect, the choice becomes one of which tiny errors one finds less bothersome. but having thusly scrutinized bjr's entire mm collection (http://r2toyforce.net/sabretooth.htm), i trust you can trust my judgment? :glasses:

targ year-end clearouts sighted: $7 mv 2-pax down to $3.48, mostly sandcrawler/awing sets left; figs down to $2.38 (including an r4p17 4me :) ) and $20 targ-xlcusive microbattle sets holding at $15.38 but if/when they drop further i'll try to bag one of each for jg & any other foreinger who still seeks, since at that price they'd be too good for me Not to traffick in; say so here if interested, quantities limited. also, trashtaniums beginning to appear at targs, $5 each :p
baggins4me: saga2 boushh, $7 (of course i'll try to improve on that riDiculous price) and 4 cds, $.50 each: ultra nate's Situation Critical, dutronc's Dutronc! Dutronc!

as prev indicated, recent tojo shipment (which gave my mm collection its single biggest growth spurt since summer '97 when i scored 16-ship st le set 3, all aliens, b5 & terminator ships for less than 50% retail :D ) also included a number of extras i don't want and which i'm offering exclusively here :) i've not yet determined my exact cost for each (which is what you'd pay, except in event of trade- see wantlist at end) but i estimate $4-7 per unit which, any collector can attest, is damn good :) 1st priority will be given to those seeking to complete a set (or to acquire a near-complete set); after that, i'm happy to part these out :) 1 of each available unless quantities otherwise specified:

Hehe- I knew you'd look there is all- solly ;)

Well, the ST MM 3 pack may be common but maybe SOMEone will want them- and I figured you'd know best (as you normally do ;))

The Jedi Temple Assault Clonetroopers are Quick Draw (#6) molds (ala the Red Shocktrooper) versus the AT-TE Gunner mold. The paint jobs are supposedly better (the AT-TE Gunner mold Blue Clone has dirty feet while the Quick Draw's do not), the pauldron is removable (like the AT-Te Gunner) but there is no removable helmet.

I'm am completist with the ROTS Clones, and I have them all- even every variant (it was hell tracking down the 3 Bly's and 2 Gree's let me tell you)- except for the Jedi Temple Assault Clones. With Commander Cody and the Utapau Troopers coming soon, I want to catch up.

Granted the Generations MM pack might not be a good trade for the Quick Draw Blue Clones unless you paid retail for the Jedi Temple Assault, but the Generations MM's don't sell for Sithspit on Ebay and the Jedi Temple Assaults average $40+ and all I want from the dang pack is 2 of the 5 figures- so it's not worth it to me...yet.

If you happen to come across a Jedi Temple Assault pack I could make it worth your while (Cash, trade, whateva- I still have everything you ever found for me :D) Also remember I have access to tons of stuff in a nigh-collector free town, too :p

'Sides, I figured I could hope that maybe you had some Jedi Temple Assault Clones extra roaming around ;)

But there ya go :)

VT: Great, I just wanted to be sure I didnt miss a message about them long ago or something. Thanks also for the target sets, I'm sure the second best paint jobs will be perfectly fine with me. The Targets around here now have them on clearance, but they still only have the Landspeeder set. I haven't seen any of the playsets in a while but they never were important enough for me to get at full price. If you come across any at half price or less and no one needs them I'd gladly take 1 of each, except for the Turbo Tank. I did pick one of them up anyways.

Thanks again,
S43

-DEAL, mistah wit-da-quikness :cool: except as indicated it's Pegasus that's available. however, peg's identical to gal except for the tiny name stenciled on "nacelles" (and iirc bc3 sez it's slightly rarer than a galac). if that's ok i'll ship it w/yer deestuff, and feel free to send furvoy (don't need box, but i'll take pic insert- & feel free to give candy to local kid to keep shipweight down) either now or later w/deepayment; need any other bg's while you're at it, or do you already have all the others?

s43: "except for the Turbo Tank"
-as it happens, that's the one i've seen the most of :ermm: roger wants, i'll lyk any results :)

"they never were important enough for me to get at full price"
-same here; luckily, as recent fashpix indicate, i was recently able to arrange acquiring myself one each of the 6 miniships- separate from their playsets- for Much less :D

ws: "If you happen to come across"
-not sure i've ever actually sighted one but i've kept eye out, incl. at local k-mart that closed at year end; alas, no luck yet!

"still have everything you ever found for me"
-well That's not muchuva motivation- after all i'd've hardly turned any of that stuff over to you if i'd been Personally interested in it ;) alas, i fear you long ago sold away my strongest trade motivation, namely that fc-bagged $10 st le3 16-set you brought to a trekcon once so i could view it- now thems i could easily find a home for ;D

"I figured you'd know"
-oh sure i can always find a Home 4 it, just prolly not for those trade terms :dis:

"Gunner mold Blue Clone has dirty feet"
-actually i think that's padawan-blood spatterings :evil: thanx for jtablu info; actually i prefer my tacops w/that paintjob as, since i got rid of my gunner (exc. for his distinctive pauldron & helmcover) it gives me a unique sculpt in my quest to minimize my clone redundancy while consolidating & maximizing their diversity (color, features etc) :) speakin of which. . .

White TIE is the 1-per-case, Entertainment Earth in their case description called it a "treasure hunt". The Vulture Droid is the 1-per-case in the second wave, it's clearly nowhere near as popular as the White TIE which ships in both wave 1 and wave 2 yet is always snapped up when the Vulture Droid ain't.

Hehe- nice customs :D

I got one of every commercially released Clonetrooper ;) I even bought 2 Gray Evolutions packs so my ROTS Clone Commander could be busted down to Private :p

The Yellow Evo pack doesn't have the extra ammo belt so I ain't gonna go there...

STILL gotta' get the Temple Clones...

When I DO have them all, it'll be picture time- I've spent at least $200 securing them all, either by retail or Ebay...it's nuts...

Then again, aren't we all? :D

As far as trade terms go for the MM 3-Pack, I'm willing to take that extra White Titanium TIE off of ya- I need one to open :D

I'll have an extra Titanium Death Star here soon, as EE shipped my order with the complete Titanium wave to me, and I already have a Galoob Death Star opened. This means I just need a new one closed and the wave I got had 2 Death Stars in it. Looks like I'll be opening everyone else- save the Vulture Droid- which I could use an extra one of, too- to open of course :laugh:

I also have an extra AOTC Gray Clone with Pilot Helmet from the Gray Evo pack and the "Dirty" Gray-pauldron Stormtrooper from that same pack. I'm willing to add those to the deal if you desire them- if not, they are going to the Bay of E to help my continuing battle of off-setting my other Clone costs...

So, let me know if you have any ideas :p

-spek fer yerself, i like to think my collecting balances my mania for toys w/an equal mania for efficiency, so as not let them take over my life, finances & physical space :crazed: on the other hand, for the first time ever i may be deciding to leave a couple items unopened. one is the silver boba i got from dee- not for sentimental reasons ("hey. . . it's Me" :rolleyes: ) but cuz i don't imagine it'd look any cooler freed from its cool packaging. inspired by that i may also unopen the new saga boba (recently bagged, along w/boushh, for $5.88 each- better than prev. $7 but still not good enuf) as, while its aesthetic ground is already covered by the prev 2 bobas which i have opened, it looks nifty in its unique new pkg, the latter featuring stills of him i ain't seen b4 :)

"for the MM 3-Pack, I'm willing to"
-at $5&tax purch price for the tie, plus $4+ to ship to you? i'm afraid the highest total expenditure i could justify for trafficking in a common st3pak like that is ~$2-3 :dis:

"willing to add those"
-i was already able to get what i wanted from the gray & yellow evol pax (accessories mostly- btw i slung xtra ammo blet over left shoulder of gray/bacarahead/gunnerpauldron/bluegrayskirt/snowtroopbakpak custom)- and efficiently, non-scalpingly routed the remaining contents where they won't go to waste- but thanx anyhoo; it don't hurt to axe, so feel free to lmk any other idears you get :)

So...what are you saying? I'd have to add $2-$3 plus ship the ST MM's to you for a White TIE I may open (depending on if mine is better or not). Dude- that's a done deal if you're game...Got an extra Vulture Droid? :p

Otherwise, cool on the Evolutions front. I'll probably nick 'em on the Bay of E then- unless someone else has a trade idea...

I am on an all out quest for the Jedi Temple Assault pack. Let me know if you happen across them ;)

Cool on the Fett's- there's so much that's been released that I don't even know what I am missing lately- since the POTJ line even. I still look forward to that OOM-9- for sentimental reasons. :p

On your want list I am afraid I don't have anything I can spare but I'll keep an eye out :)

$20 targ-xlcusive microbattle sets holding at $15.38 but if/when they drop further i'll try to bag one of each for jg & any other foreinger who still seeks, since at that price they'd be too good for me Not to traffick in; say so here if interested, quantities limited.
Thank you very very much for your kind offer vt (you are really a dream for a foreigner MM collector :yes: ) but I already was able to get one of each of the 3 mini playsets, so I do not need them anymore. :)
It is always amazing to know about these clearances you have in the US, it looks like having patience it is possible to get almost everything for half the price (if not better). :shocked: Lego, mini vehicles, Titaniums, figures, etc.
Needless to say in Italy we do not have anything like that; items may decompose on the shelves but we never see any kind of discount. :sad:
Well, at least we may count on US friends like you and the other foruMMers! :D
Thank you in any case for your always v(t)aluable help. ;)

ws: "I'd have to add $2-$3 plus ship the ST MM's to you"
-actually you'd have to add $3 Plus shipping cost of tie to you Plus the 3-pak. only that way would the total cost of this transaction to me be $2-3 ;) but if you wait a coupla months maybe a white tie'll show up there & going to such overwrought lengths w/me won't be necessary on your part :)

"Got an extra Vulture Droid?"
-you mean trashtanium version? nope, not an Extra, since i'm not gettin one at All (the plastic one that came w/invishand playset's good enuf 4me :)). but are you saying it's htf, & want me to keep eye out for that too?

Maybe...I suppose...but I do want one opened...badly.

Same with the Vulture Droid, though I agree- it IS "Trashtanium-" they really dropped the ball on this ship- only in the eye department, really. I wonder if there's a variation on the way? But yes- please keep an eye out for one as I do want one to open.

-DEAL, mistah wit-da-quikness :cool: except as indicated it's Pegasus that's available. however, peg's identical to gal except for the tiny name stenciled on "nacelles" (and iirc bc3 sez it's slightly rarer than a galac). if that's ok i'll ship it w/yer deestuff, and feel free to send furvoy (don't need box, but i'll take pic insert- & feel free to give candy to local kid to keep shipweight down) either now or later w/deepayment; need any other bg's while you're at it, or do you already have all the others?

heya...sorry i've been our of commission for a bit...i'll be glad to go ahead and send you the voyager...i just need an addy to get it posted...the only hangup is that i misread your posting :frus: ...i've already got the pegasus and the atlantia but not the galactica, but that's no biggie...if it's ok with you, i'll just pass on the pegasus and pick up the romando ent-d (i guess having two won't hurt :ermm: ...i can always pull out the trusty old dremel and let my imagination have its way)

anyway, if you'll let me know where to send it, i'll go ahead and get $ and fur-voy in the mail headed your way...

-now That's more like it re trade motivation ;) i'll have to ask re the preds, but bjr's always lookin for more aliens mms so lmk what you got & i'll let him know :)
speakin of tradebait, do you have the elusive targ-xclusive sa clone w/red markins (may 05 release)? if not, wanna trade me your xtra covop for my unopened one? :D

I don't have an extra Covert Op? Weird. Lost in translation somewhere. The only Clones I have extra right now are the AOTC Style Evolutions Gray Clonetrooper with Pilot Helmet from Ep 2 (along with the blaster rifle- I kept the pistol for the ROTS clone I needed from the pack) and the Gray Pauldron "Dirty" Stormtrooper from the same Evolutions pack.

Cool on the MM's- not sure if I am willing to part with them but try me. I am getting desperate for the Jedi Temple Assault Clones...and will probably soon be desperate for those Titaniums (White TIE and Vulture). Of course, I AM desperate for any of the original Titanium Wave 4 ships in original packaging (Wookie Flyer, Naboo Royal, Ravaged Falcon and Green ROTS JSF) I still have the AF Dropship I got from bjr, btw- and I still love it dearly.:love:

I got the Target exclusive clone and opened him immediately but wanna' hear what's really amusing? It was $11 for me on Ebay BUT it was mailed from the UK! It has stickers on it- one over the "Target Exclusive" on the side of the packaging and another with tri-lingual crud on the back of the card. There was no protective case, either. These clones were apparently released in the UK, too! Odd eh?

I've only been buying one of each Clone variation and opening them- I am keeping none in package this time. I love 'em too much :p


"was hell tracking down the 3 Bly's and 2 Gree's"
-i know about bly shoulder-ring color diff (and incorporated 1 of each into 2 customs which, cuz they're yellow, i won't have occasion to fashdisplay til fall :crazed: ) but what other variants be there?

Ok- there's a last Bly variation that was at the VERY end of the line. The figure has dark yellow stripes down the upper leg armor, dark orange AND yellow on the helmet, and "silkscreened" ala Gray ROTS Evolutions Trooper battle damage all over it- most notably on the lower left leg. Here's a link to one on Ebay:

The guy is asking an insane price though...but I paid like $17 for mine with shipping- and it's opened :) (http://cgi.ebay.com/ROTS-57-Commander-Bly-Variant-brown-stripe-battle-dmg_W0QQitemZ6028654118QQcategoryZ101609QQssPageNa meZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)

I customized the first Bly with the white shoulder rings to a "busted down" Private. The Bly with the yellow rings is wearing only the command skirt, while the last Bly with orange and Battle Damage as seen in that auction is the actual "Bly" to me :p

Are you talking the 3 3/4 Plo Koon fighters? If so, um, please snag me one? I only really like it for the paint job, and would definitely open it. I would have bought it up here if I had found them that cheap but they're gone now! I still want to get the Anakin and Obi-Wan Starfighters and their TRU cousins but they are too danged much for me on Ebay at the moment...

...I am tempted to ask for another Utapau Shadow Trooper, but really, I only need one...*sob* I saw a COOL diorama that had an ROTS Republic Gunship, 2 Black ROTS Clone Pilot variants, 4 Utapau Shadow Troopers and a custom Bacara from the Target pack that had black added to him. It was like a "Shadow Squadron." Looked cool...since then, I have wanted more Utapau's but really...I don't need another one...*Keeps trying to convince self*

The only 2 Clones I need are still 2 Blue damned Jedi Temple Assault ones...one with rifle, one with pistol...and I am not looking forward to paying $50 for the pack on Ebay but oh well...

But, I got through a fifth of the thread so far and the only deal I've come across so far I'm pretty sure I paid you for. It was the package with POTJ Bucktooth Luke, besp Guard and some others.

Costs as much to ship them over there as it does to buy them...

Been holding on to an ARC-170 for AndyW for almost a month now but shipping is as much to where he is as it costs me to buy it.

Sucks. Double-edged sword really- GREAT ships with heft but that heft makes shipping them costly...

lotsa catch-up since forums were down ;) bagged the 3 bsg ts ships, and concur with y'alls difficulty in finding good paintjobs for same :p what i do is buy the best of whatever i find (unless i can tell right there that it's worse than what i already have), then compare it w/the (unopened) paintjob i already own. then i refund whichever one i like least :)

managed similar trick for a tsc boba w/prev-bagged, $1.18-clearanced nimoydian pegwarmior at a kmart (since their rots figs are still $6.99 like their tsc figs); same for utaclone & cody using a clearanced monmoth and chopdroid :) will likely use utaclone just to cannibalize surfaces from- right thigh etc- to increase cody's orangeness. also thusly traded a scrotch for a 2nd neimwarrior; i don't usually like xp-uni stuff, and his backpack looks a lil too much like it was designed according to lego parameters, but he still looks cool enough to take on. nice gun too :) but he looks to be hard to figure where to incorporate him seasonally (http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?t=356&page=17); he might go nice w/mv anijsf, which itself goes in fall, but not yet sure he'd be restricted there; he might crop up at diff times in my fashpix year like repcruis, melbourne etc.
i had to axe a targ floorwalker's help to score my codys & scorches; not my first choice of tactic, as i don't like to bother them generally-nice folk and it feels a little like cheeting ;)

"Lost in Translation soundtrack in your travels for CHEAP (i.e. $10 or below"
-tell you what, i'm so confident i can meet those terms i'll make you a deal: i'll supply you with a mint o-o-p yellow jsf w/black guns for $4 ($1 less than what was paid for it since it's o-o-p), the $5.24 +tax plokoon fighter i bagged a few months ago (since i haven't yet been able to trade it for a trifighter & its buzzdroids), And an under-$10 LIT soundtrack if you'll trade me your xtra covops troop fro my xtra utashad troop. lmk

ARGH! Talk about Lost in Translation- I don't have an extra Covert Ops Trooper (the gray/purple SW Fan Club Exclusive) I only have 1 and it's opened and displayed :( :( :( In fact, at the moment, I don't have any spare/extra Clone Troopers :(

The only Star Wars extras I do have are the blue small holographic figures of Darth Vader, Stormtrooper and 1 other one (can't remember who it is), a Senate Skirmish Pod, Yoda and the Emperor from the Senate Skirmish, and that's about it :(

I'd be all over that offer if I did have an extra Ops Trooper, though, let me tell ya!

Need anything else I might be able to get you here? I mean at this point the Droid Tri-Fighter in the Saga packaging are showing up here- maybe we could work out something with that? :)

I most definitely want everything you offered though!

LMK

(The Galactica stuff is still tempting, too)

Oh yeah- Michael Giacchino is the next John Williams. You heard it here first :p

Anyhoo, I spotted a few "warehouse find" Episode I MM listed for sale over at Toyzz.com (http://www.toyzz.com/toys.cfm?sid=84629158C64926061606002E1150464586203 S165N138N44N100Q89747097F81&c=1&pid=60596&nf=1).

What a "bargain". How generous of Toyzz.com for charging "only" $4.50 when most scalpers had mountains of these for the longest time and couldn't give them away at a buck a piece. Not your fault Ji'Dai, and I'm sure some completists would love to have 'em, but I hate to see this kind of thing happen.

I like how the company has advertised on that same site, the very inexpensive Episode I fast food toys that were available at KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut as originally costing $9.99 when everyone knows that they were under $2.00 and I believe 99 cents with a meal purchase.

Still thinking it over- I mean worse comes to worse would you be willing to trade a boxed Droid Tri-Fighter for the Yellow JSF, less then $10 LIT soundtrack, and the Plo Koon JSF? (all shipping $$$ to be worked in there someplace)

Anything you want me to add to sweeten that deal? (All I can think of that I have are Ep 1 MM packs 1-6 ((or was it 1-4- whatever the common ones were)) from the last Fan Club sale- they were $1 each I believe :)- plus I have access to a NON-Mint packaged TS Republic Attack Cruiser...)

Is there anything else you're after (it's been a while since you posted your "wants" :thumbsup: ) that might be able to hunt down in this collector forsaken place? :D

Wonderful! :D
Everything is OK in that list. :)
Paypal surcharge for cross-border transactions (see paypal site (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_display-xborder-fees-outside&countries=) should be 3,9% + 0,35EUR (about 0,42USD), so when you know the total + shipping we can add 3,9% + $0,50 and that should be it.
In any case if the fee you will pay for receiving the payment is not this one I can send you the additional money in the next payment. :)
Please let me know when you know the shipping and I will send you the money asap.
Thank you vt!

-worse'd have to come to pretty bad, cuz while i wouldn't mind getting a balled-up buzzdroid (already got an open one loose via trade), i'm not really in the market for a trifi, much less one that would in the end cost me full price give or take shipping. b'jr wants a bargain on a tri-fi, but he's currently so much in hock who knows if i could squeeze the xtra $$ outta him to make it worth my while :crazed:
