Well, I was excited last night because I was finally gonna pay out my layaway at Wal-Mart. Went to the back & when they pulled the items & sat them on the counter I was a little bit mad.
I am a MOC, MIMB collector. I know they're toys but I like em in their prisons (well Star Wars toys anyway). Anyway, I had 24 Saga figures & a snowspeeder on layaway. The person brings out my stuff and this is what I saw:
Snowspeeder - The person that put it in the back for me had wrapped packing tape all the way around the box of the snowspeeder, so when I tried to pull it off, yep you guessed it, the box, paper, plastic etc came off with it. It must have been industrial strength cause it did a number on it. Mark 1 to return.
Figures - I got these home & was excited to be able to have a whole set. Well, I knew already that I was going to return 15 cause I bought the ones with the background so I didnt need the ones without. Got to looking at the other figures & four of em had been demolished. The bubbles were all bent & creased, some of the cards were folded to make em fit in the box. I was like son of a biscuit!!!!!!!!!!! So now that makes 19 to return. I only kept 5 out of the original 24 I had on layaway.
What does this teach me?? I am never going to put anything on layaway ever again. I shoulda just bought the stuff when I saw it but I figured I would put it on there so that I could buy other stuff as I was paying the layaway. It was a good plan but it didnt work in the end.
So now here comes my question. My WM only got 4 snowspeeders (& they still have about 6 TIE Fighters).
Would anyone be willing to trade for a snowspeeder? I have positive feedback at Ebay & in the forums here. I can easily find the new Saga figures. I can also find a Garindan, Tarkin, Ponda Baba (all with holograms) at my local Freds Dollar Store.
I will even send cash/check/money order to get this Snowspeeder.
Please, help me out!!!!! Thanks!!!!!!!
