    Is This Rare?

    I have got a carded Dexter Jettster, a figure quite rare itself, with a background packed in and on the side where it says all the accessories, it says pipe, which most of them don't say at all, how rare is it?

    I wouldn't say rare. Even if each store got 2 in, that's still a couple million in production, so locally uncommon, at best. You can probably find one for retail if you look hard enough, forgoing the figure hoarders and proceeding through an honest outlet.

    And if you can't find one, so what? The figure is the thing you play with, and the packaging, background included, is disposed of.

    Journalists are mostly centrist in their political orientation. The minority of journalists who do not identify with the "center" are more likely to identify with the "right" when it comes to economic issues and to identify with the "left" when it comes to social issues.

    I doubt there are millions of them, and not every store got those shipments.

    Dex isn't that rare himself...but that Pipe text showing w/ background version is QUITE RARE.

    "Street Music" (Directed by JD Marlow) is a documentary short about performance in public spaces, focusing on NYC street and subway musicians. Check out my web site for more information about the film!

    the only dexter's that i have seen around here were all the non-backgrounded type. and the "pipe" text was covered up. so i would thing that there are millions of them either.

    I've had this happen too!! I got the clean Biker Scout from POTJ and that was all I wanted. Then I saw the Dirty version come in, but I am no a varation hunter. So I let him go. For about a month, 7 of those figs sat on the pegs. Then I decide to do an Endor Diorama and I wanted a dirty Biker Scout to go in there. I walked out to our toy dept and behold, all 7 scouts, which were there the day b/4, are all gone!! I haven't see one since
    Dar' is no longer "Live in Orlando" . . . he may "Not be in Orlando" either . . .
