Re: Latest Acquisitions

Damn Frank! That's mailer shipping case is awesome! Been pretty quiet for me for awhile, but this turned up which I had to snag. I've been after one of these alt logo POTF coins for a good couple years now. I had to let another proto coin go to help with the cost, but it was well worth it. http://po...

Re: Trailer is up!!!

It's pretty funny what an 88 second SW trailer can do to the internet. :lol: It looks great to me so far, but I also am not a complete prequel hater. So far I like the look of things and I also still get that there should be some kid elements in these films. There always has been even in the OT, but...

So far so good guys! I've just finished listening to the interview with Joe which was great. I think we need the explicit version of him talking about AFA posted somewhere though. ;)

Re: EB Baggies Question

If this is the set I'm thinking of, these are all loose figures. I believe the collector just put them in those baggies for display reasons, but didn't bother with tracking down the correct ones.

Depending on when the set was mailed it can consist of or a combination of SW-A to SW-D bags.

Re: Luke Jedi - Tawain

A pic would help and which 65 back version. The molded face version came from Taiwan and can be found on the 65a card which typically includes the snap cape. Also, the 65b and 65c taiwan versions have the cape in the green sleeve as opposed to the Hong Kong which has a different inner bubble tray.

Re: What a twat!

That whole video is a bunch of caca. :evil:

I guess by his standards I should just open up my Trilogo LJ/Ben miscard since there's a bubble crack. I need to get the gold out.

Re: Best way to open MOC?

That's exactly what I've done :lol: I've got a couple of blue sets which will remain sealed and even though I've picked up the black ones to open I do like the look of the card backs this way also so thought I'd try to keep them nice. As a side note I also picked up the blue egg chamber set and ord...

Re: Best way to open MOC?

It's up to you, but honestly with them being the cheapest right while being produced still, I'd just pick up another set of them. That's what I opted to do when they made the SDCC sets the different blue cardbacks since I couldn't bring myself to open those.
