    Any other places or threads where I can find canons for my 2002 X-Wing? Just picked one up from eBay, but need to snag a few missing parts. Seems like their modern additions are pretty solid as far as quality and detail.

    One of the best lines ever. A perfect mix of OT and TPM. I have nearly every figure from it.

    Hello Everyone,

    I had been collecting Star Wars action figures from the later 90's until around 2004/2005 or so for the mere enjoyment of trying to collect all of them. I have since accumulated over 200 figures that are still in their original packaging from the Power of the Force figures, Episode I, Power of the Jedi, and the Saga action figure line. Unfortunately, at this point, I am looking to sell them all as they are just taking up too much room. I recently visited a vintage toy store that purchases all sorts of action figures and other toys. Now, I am not looking to make a fortune by any means on the action figures that I have been collecting, but am looking for a fair price. They were going to offer $1.00 apiece for the majority of the action figures.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to whether waiting a little longer until the new movies come out if the prices may go up slightly to maybe $3-4 per figure? Am I better off just selling to the toy store? What are your thoughts?

    Keep them and wait for the new movies to come out, then try to sell the lot on Ebay or Craigslist. Take great pictures and know the shipping cost beforehand. Or try to find someone who has children and see if they can catch the Star Wars bug from you. I sold some of my hoard to parents who wanted to introduce their kids to Star Wars. It was a win-win situation.

    I had a chance yesterday to pick up a POTJ Tie Interceptor for 30.00 in the box. Box was opened and in fair condition, but the Tie inside was never taken out as far as I can tell, looked really good. Offered the guy 25.00 and he accepted but I passed on it. Im thinking I should have picked it up for display. Anyone think this was a fair price. Happy May fourth scummers.

    SacredKnight:

    1)POTJ B-Wing: I have a few a couple of the POTJ B-wings and I do have say it looks better aesthetically, at least. IMO the slightly darker blue on the POTJ one make it look much, much MUCH better.
    The weathering on the POTJ version looks much more realistic IMO as well. The scraping, wear & tear, scarring, etc on the POTJ ship carry over seamlessly onto the whole of the ship, most specifically onto the circle red markings. All of this adds up to a much better looking ship.

    2)TVC B-Wing: This ship does have really nice upgrades. First thing being are the black "burn marks" on the engine, in front and on the back where those 4 muffler looking this are. That alone wouldn't entice me towards the VC mold. However, the one (and IMO)best upgrade is the inside of the cockpit----the inside is all new, as far as I can tell, and its actually done up extremely well.

    So my opinion is this: If you are looking for a ship for hanging or some suspended mode. I personally would go with the POTJ, However, if you are going to have it in "park mode" w/the cockpit open, I'd go with the VC version.

    And also, almost forgot----if you're one that keeps his items in their boxes, the POTJ version is the easy choice. It getting more & more difficult that we get clear/see through boxes, then it's a no brainer.

    Hope this helps.
