    I guess the economy has turned the tables on those who lived on the fringe (making their living on eBay and what-not).

    Agreed. I'm sure the scalping business has taken a major hit. I don't senese much of a demand for SW stuff these days, even here in the heart of Scalperdom, LA. With the ebay profits disappearing, these "dealers" have only their welfare checks to rely on.

    At least there is a positive aspect to the $8+ price point on basic figures!

    I see headphones at target a lot, I like to pretend I am racing him to something so he takes off running full on, then I walk the rest of the way.

    You see Boyardee at Burbank TRU lately? I am thinking he finally got s**t-canned.

    I went the other day and saw wormser only. Haven't seen the Chef in a while. Their main manager (Bill) was transfered to another TRU and I'm guessing the Chef got fired or transfered along with his pal.
    Plumber Bob still is a Burbank target regular and as far as I know, Hootie still goes to NoHo, unfortunately.

    I saw Peg-leg Pete a few times recently. Once at PC WM and the 2nd time at Target. He's still after those Hotwheels.

    Hey, good to see you CrunchyNug! We had good times back during last July's Midnite Madness, what with AT-TEs and BMFs, V-19s, Homing Spider Droids, Clone Scuba Troopers, and what-not.

    And nobody at the store in San Diego that I picked was (at least definitely) a scalper. Let Toys R Us (Prices R Up) deal with those guys.

    Jackie Chan

    Anyone seen those guys lately?

    I haven't heard descriptions of some of these guys, I think:


    Beautiful Bobby - I picture Sasha Cohen portraying a gay metro-character.
    Blackberry - seems self-evident, but more description could be fun.
    Lynyrd Skynyrd - this guy is news to me.

    So please give me the lowdown.
