View Full Version : Who would buy this junk?

07-14-2006, 07:19 PM
I was just searching ebay (as I do every day) when I ran across this auction (http://cgi.ebay.com/VINTAGE-STAR-WARS-PARTS-FOR-MISCELLANEOUS-VEHICLES_W0QQitemZ160008191508QQihZ006QQcategoryZ5 0271QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem). My first thought was what is this junk and who would buy it? The first part of my question was answered by looking at the photo more closely. I don't have a clue as to the second part. So I'll ask you guys. And please feel free to add your odd ball auction finds (vintage only, unless the mods move this thread).

The black rectangular piece looks like the drawbridge from the Death Star Playset or maybe the cargo hatch for Slave I. The tan wheels probably belong to the landspeeder. The rest looks like pieces of a model car or something, not Star Wars.

No, they really are all vintage Star Wars parts. The black rectangular piece is like you said, the bridge from the Death Star. The rest is from the landspeeder. The large black is from inside and holds the wheels. The springs are the suspension are should attach to the black piece. The silver pieces are the sides. The screws be from anything, but are the type Kenner used to hold their vehicles together, so my best guess is they're from the landspeeder when it was opened up.

ok, I see it now. That makes sense with the screws and springs. The chrome parts were on their sides so I didn't recognize them. How do you end up with only the bottom side of a vintage landspeeder?

You never know what collectors need to repair an older item. For every Y-Wing bomb or Falcon training remote with string that's missing, there's probably someone who wants a Cloud Car landing gear or Mini Rig canopy. I think it would've been nicer if the seller mentioned what the pieces belong to, instead of just calling it "Star Wars parts."

Slicker's mom wouldn't buy that junk. (Of course, she has a garage-full of vintage vehicle parts she's been given as payment for services rendered.)

She's also got alot of this junk in her trunk.

No, seriously. Her Pinto is full of vintage parts.

I had pinto beans last night for supper. They were yummo, to quote Rachael Ray.

Speakin of Pinto Beans- google "Pinto Rage" and if you find a video by that name, give it a quick watch, it's a really funny piece and it's not "adult" in any way shape or form, but it is catchy :beard: Iso & Baws
