Is everyone getting tired of old Eric over here?
I'm thinking that most of you are getting tired of me. I have been trying day-in and day-out to find an E-wing. I finally saved up $70 to buy one. But now, when I email people, they either don't care and tell me so, don't respond, or tell me they want more $ for it. I am not like some people that just try to get certain things to complete a set or some such things. I geniunely would value and treasure my E-wing (if i had one). I mean, I think the E-wing is a DAMNED cool ship! So is the TIE Defender! But that doesn't really matter now does it? It seems like I am the only person who feels this way, and the only person without an E-wing. If you wanna sell me yours, then please email me ok! firstname.lastname@example.org Please reply!
P.S. I'm also looking for a TIE Defender, but not until after I get an E-wing.
you've already expressed your happiness over our trade girlfriend
but it's always nice knowing that you're thinking of moi!:)
psystinger, don't give up the hunt. in the 4 or so years of cyberwhackin' with most the denziens of this forum, impossible quests have been fufilled in ways none of us could have possible forseen prior to hanging out here at ssg (post buzz days).
it was only through this forum that i could have possibly acquired some of the toys that i play with today. (heh, and mason thinks i get em for him ;) )
i was extrememly lucky several years ago when i had gotten home from work, and mason indicated to me that he had seen that "funny tie fighter" with the three wings earlier when he was at targets with mommy. (he was 4 then, 8 now)
dropping everything i rushed to targets, and lo and behold were two tie defenders, two e-wings, and 2 jabba sail barges)(all marked down to $7.99)
the extra jabba sail barge went to a canadian gentleman in exchange for two imperila landing craft (one of em, found it's way across the atlantic into britcit's impressive collection), the extra tie defender also went to england in exchange for the impossible to find x-ray sets V, VI, and VII, and the e-wing went.............the funny thing is, i have no idea where the extra e-wing went:eek: , my guess is that it somehow ended up as a birthday present for one of masons friends several years ago:stupid:
when jeddah and i had made the deal of swapping e-wing for epic sets IV, V, and VI, i went to retrieve the e-wing, only to find that it was no longer there:eek: :eek: :eek: , so in order to complete my end of the deal with jeddah, i searched ebay, found the 1st e-wing auction with a buy it now ($125.00:eek: ). and gladly paid that premium price in order to keep my end of the deal intact with jeddah.
as fer lusting after something for like forever, and yet not being able to obtain it, i most certainly understand your frustration. i've been after an emblemless green a-wing for at least three years now, (and have even carelessly let one slip away not to long ago for el cheapo dinero :mad: ). i do know that one day i will have this seemingly elusive bird in my hand, becuase i have the help of quite a few people on this board keeping a lookout for me :happy: that's just what we do around here, help eachother out! :)
we generally like to trade in lieu of exchanging currency, (although if an item is snared we do forward it on to the person seeking it in exchange for the exact price paid, plus the exact shipping costs). if by chance you have some action fleet or micro machines that you're willing to trade, several folks who post here, (in particular, a certain native of rocky mountain high who go's by the calling of vulcantouch), have proven themselves to be quite resourceful over the years in tracking down the impossible dreams of others. :)
hang around awhile, jump on in to the ecclectic mix of cocktail chatter, and who knows, somewhere in the not to distant future, an e-wing with your name on it just might surface.
and once again (thanx swaffy for extending the official greeting), welcome to the micro machines forums of ssg!
