  1. I’ve done just that with saving his info. I’ve even saved most of the pictures from his image cache as well. 

    He’s a really nice guy to talk with. I contacted him through eBay a while back and he was very helpful.

    Last night on ebay I scored the final character that completes my Star Wars kubrick collection .......DX4 Imperial Commander  :banana:   'He' wasn't cheap but ... 

    Big congrats! That is one hell of a collection to complete.

    What about Bawbricks or B@wbricks as my Eastern friends marketed them ?  Dog & cat articulated Kubrick-like critters.  Yep....... I have all but one of them ......whoopee do.:D

    The one Bawbrick I have, (at least I think it's technically a Bawbrick?), is the one included with the Cosmonauts set. That set is one of my favorite toys in my collection.

  4. I have one Bearbrick that I bought solely because it’s from the tv show Fringe. When I saw that I had to get it. Fringe is one of my all time favorite tv shows and there is basically zero merch for it.

    I have that Tarkin!  My SW Kubrick collection consists of about a dozen figures.  Very cool figures, but I think the repacks and spotty distribution killed the line.

    How married are you to that Tarkin? ?

  8. This thread is nothing without pics... I've usually kept my pre-production collection pretty private. But before it gets split up, (some of this I will keep), I wanted to revive this thread, which has long been one of my favorites. So here's what I was able to put together. I know there are better collections out there, (I've seen them, mostly!), but I was always kind of proud of these.

  9. Hey everyone. It's time for me to say so long to the good old 'Verse. Collecting Minimates just isn't fun for me any longer and it's time to focus on other things. I'll be getting sales lists together soon, but most of my posting will be in the Classifieds section from now on as I sort through and let go of my collection.

    Thanks to everyone that has ever traded with me, sold something to me, bought something from me, (which I turned around and bought more toys with!), and kept this place a collection of some of the coolest collectors on the net. You all are the best.

    Is this another example of all the characters in the boxset also being available at TRU? That can't be great for LCS sales.

    This is a very interesting question. I guess I missed the whole Watchmen Box Set  being re-released as TRU two packs, but I was pretty bummed out when I saw it. I bought two Watchmen box sets. After shipping, each one of those sets was more than $10 more than getting the corresponding sets from TRU. Maybe every once in as while that's not too bad if there are army builders or something like that involved, but it's really just wasted money. I don't mind spending an extra dollar or two here and there to "shop local", (or smaller business from a different part of the country), but $10 per box set is just too much for me to take a stand on supporting small business vs. corporations. At that point it's a stacked deck that DST is dealing in TRU's favor. Which is perfectly fine if that's what they want to do, but they have to see that box set sales will dip if there's a significantly cheaper alternative.

    In this case it cost me more than $20 extra. That's a Star Wars 6" figure, or most of a DCC BtaS figure, etc... Just doesn't make a lot financial sense, and is something I'm going to pay more attention to going forward.
