View Full Version : Anyone else preorder cases and trading doubles?

I have preordered two cases so far. The first one is the Dagobah wave and the doubles have been traded away so far. The other is VOTC and I will have a double of 3PO. I am willing to trade it for a Lando VOTC. If mydeal falls through on the oTC Dagobah wave I will let people know.

This is a good way to support fellow collectors.
What I usually do is find out what friends who collect are looking for and then pick up accordingly. When we trade, it's ALWAYS for face value, often even swaps, unless there is a lot of stuff; then tax gets factored in.
I will probably just order a case or two of both the OTC and the VOTC line. Whatever doesn't get taken among the 2 other collectors will probably get mentioned in the NE PA Just Found Forum for folks such as Sith Lord 0498, etc. Trading is really a good way to go, helps out a lot.
I find if I buy one too many of a particular figure, it's usually no problem finding someone who needs it...

Are we talking about the VOTC Kid?

06-17-2004, 10:57 PM
Yes sir. VOTC. I will have a double of 3PO if you need that.

I pre ordered all the cases that EE has to offer. I do this as an insurance in case I don't find them at retail. I end up canceling a few cases here and there. If I have extra, I will trade or sell them for what I paid. I might wan to open a few also. I think I'll have extra of the 1st VOTC. I'll have to check it out.

Sounds good, just LMK what you got when you get it.

any word on when SWS.com will be shipping the 1st OTC waves out?

06-22-2004, 08:45 PM
Dunno, but probably sometime in July like EE.

I was just looking at the assortments on EE and I just now noticed that wave 7, 8, 9, 2 waves of VOTC and the new 12" are all coming in July and probably all at the same time. That's over $400 bucks. Nothing for months and now here comes bombardment.:frus:

Ack,good thing I only ordered one case for now. Got one in July and one in August. Check you r cases Turbo, see if alot of them will be doubles as most might be.

06-27-2004, 11:23 PM
Yes there are some doubles, but the 98% of the repackes are 1 each per case.
