with that said, it's mm time once again
i just received a package from Iain Crawford (irc.rockford), which completes our trade which began many moons ago.
Mr. Crawford had posted in the old ssg classified section, that among other items, he was seeking a tie defender. I responded that i had an extra tie defender, and would be happy to send it to him (he's in england), if in return he would keep his eye out for the very elusive x-ray sets V b-wing and tie bomber, VI landspeeder and tie fighter, and VII snowspeeder and at-st.
at 1st, he wasn't sure if he wanted to trade, (he was concerned that he might not be able to uphold his end of the trade), i assured him, that time was not of the essence, and that i had every faith that he would eventually deliver, and since i don't sell, the only way he was gonna get my tie defender, was by agreeing to the trade. he relented, and off i whisked the tie defender.
i am here to report, that not only was he able to deliver on the said x-ray packs (which btw, are the best of the entire line!), but he agreed to a further trade involving some lord of the ring figures which he was after in exchange for ep. I mm sets XII and XIII, which he had managed to find in england!
this is what collecting is all about! helping each other out, and as vt has pointed out on numerous occasion, creating good trade karma, which will almost always result in satisfaction for all involved!
vt, as i now have the mm royal starship via pack XII, i will not be needing your dupe which you were going to send me from the tatooine desert playset. i am sure you can find a good alternative home for it!
