go visit them at www.dnstoys.com
also, if you let em know any special requests that you might have, they will e-mail you to let you know if and when they get it! that's how i got the tail end ep. I action fleet, sith infiltrator, droid control ship, royal starship, and att:happy:
over in the classified section
this person is selling (among other things) a pod race arena for $4.00. as indicated in the above post, this is the only way to get aldo beeders pod.
i don't find such opportunism all that offensive. . .
. . .as its VulgariTy actually seems kinda fitting, in light of the vulgar emotions & values upon which it attempts to Capitalize (capitalism & militarism may be the lesser of multiple evils, but they're also undeniably Vulgar :happy: tastefulness doesn't enter into business- that is, unless one's in the business of selling tastefulness Itself :Pirate: ).
but if one really wants to contribute to charity, one should just do so directly. buying something in part cuz some of its proceeds go to charity, or attending a primarily social/entertainment function whose ostensible purpose is charity, are inefficient, self-congratulatorily, ostentatious, dishonest activities. donating to charity's like carrying out an assasination: it's best when it's done discreetly, efficiently & to-the-point :dead:
np: norma jean, "havin a party" (rodgers/edwards wrote/produced)
jdah: "vulgarity is fitting?"
-indeed; in some contexts it's not only fitting, it's exactly what's called for; '60s vogue editor diana vreeland famously remarked that a well-placed splash of vulgarity is often a perfect, enlivening finishing touch. and she wasn't just tawkin bout purely aesthetic matters either :)
"seems like sometimes you say things just to appear to be different"
-ooo, what a deliciously Vicious accusation :evil: my response: in this context as in most others, there ain't no diff between "appear" and "be" :D "tryina be different", "ever-cognizant of paradox"; po-Tay-to, po-Tah-to ;)
alas, i gotcher dark clouds right here :dead:
rose is rose? that's funny, i Too didn't know swaffy & i frequent other forums :eek:
actually, for a while now ssg's pretty much been the exclusive provider of all your VaconTeur needs ;) i no longer participate on fsm or the john barry egroup (quit the latter after their absorption by yahoo made re-registration problematic). i've checked in a few times on the forum for the new official mawsite but not often, as you can see :zzz:
btw, i re-edited my 1st post above cuz i was able to come up with a more apt analogy for charity than "children" ;)
np: "i wore black, you were black; jazz is paris, and paris is jazz" :happy:
dave and the boys seem to have some new shipments in!
D & S Toys have a bunch of galoob stuff in stock, which some of you may wish to take a closer look at!
dave roberts (the D in D & S) has always been a helpful, a1 online seller, so i recommend buying from them instead of ebay. i only have the wave three episode I action fleet, cause he sent me an e-mail letting me know he had em, before postin' em on his site! a great all around online toy store!
some of the stuff in stock are;
series alpha cloud car - $18.99
chewbacca transforming head playset - $21.50
what appears to be a large vaders tie in a gold labeled box - $17.50
die cast radiant VII (republic cruiser) - $10.99
die cast sebulbas pod racer - $3.99!
they also have the three, 1, 2 , 3 gold plated mm sets for $35.00 apiece. i know that these things were available last year at big lots for $15.00 per, but considering that they originally were $100.00 apiece, as well as being limited, certain store exclusives, if you havn't picked em up yet, but wanted to, here's a good place to do it.
as the gold plates are not toys, and definately fall under the showin' not playin' catagory, i personaly have no interest.
check em out, they also carry a large selection of potwhatever stuff too.
