    Bibble found at the flea market?

    I went to the local flea market this past Sunday. On a table I see none other thatn Sio Bibble! He had no gun but was in good shape (after all, what kind of adventures would kids have with him?).

    I ask how much. ONE DOLLAR.

    I got him! I never saw one in a store but I got one now!

    I now ask, have you ever seen an ultra rare figure like that? The odds, as C-3PO would figure, are so low!
    You may know me as: Chuckles at joecustoms.com, Boshek at sirstevesguide.com and he-man.org and Eaglekiller at allspark.com.

    I used to have some luck at the flea market when I was in Colorado. I picked up a loose AT-AT commander and a Han Stormtrooper (I'm not sure which version). As for carded figures, I found Ree-Yees for $5 when he was almost impossible to find in the stores.
    Yo momma. That's right, I said "yo momma".

    No, it was the one in Colorado Springs. The few times I went to Denver, they never had anything I needed. This was back between 96-99. Although I never bought anything from him, there was one guy was in the CS flea market that had mostly vintage SW items and some newer figures (12" and 4").

    "Bibble found at the flea market?"
    OK, every time I see this thread title I think ... "what does finding a Bible at the flea market have to do with Episode one?"

    But then I read it again ...

    You know, oddly enough ... I've been to that Denver flea market a few times.

    Is anyone believing this? I am not saying it is false...it just seems weird. I have never heard of this before, I need to go to flea markets more often if this is a fact. (No, let me guess...this is luck. And I have never had any luck thus far )
    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    Oh it happens from time to time, but not too often to guys like us. The only thing I've found at the flea market worth a scoot is comics from time to time. Lots of deals on 80's stuff out there, as that's when the hobby was at it's peak. So many people got out after just a few years and are ready to get rid of the whole box for 25 cents a pop. Sweet deal if you get there first and find some good books.

    Most of the SW stuff I've found at flea markets has been over priced. One good find was a full set of brand new Burger King ESB glasses for 2 bucks a piece - they look great on display.

    Damn, you are one lucky dude, TW. That one time I found a big box of comics from the early 60's all in mint condition autographed by Stan Lee, I didn't have the 15 bucks on me the guy wanted for the whole box. I went back the next weekend - but they were gone.
