I'm pretty sure the regular version will be plentiful on evil-Bay for OK prices once these ship.

do you think they will be going for more or less than the retail price though?

I put myself on the wait list for the exclusive Vader about 7 weeks ago and it was activated last week. I can't wait to get this piece. I just hope they are able to get it out by the end of the year.

Actually it's not a boner. It's a Sigma Threepio Tape Dispenser that is positively the most ridiculous Star Wars item ever created.

By the way, using someone else's or societies' bad behavior as a reason for your own is Argumentum ad antiquitatem.

And since you used that fallacy, that's the end of debate.

HA. your pretty cool. im not defending anything. if i feel like calling someone a creep i will. thats called the first amendment. just like i dont have any ill will towards you and your self-righteous speeches and holier than thou attitude. you can hide behind big words and act like a Bill Mahr/Dennis Miller wannabe, but your still just a star wars geek like the rest of us. i dont need a philosophy teacher. i have one. and that thing LOOKS like it has boner, so whats the difference? here is some philosophy for ya, "Perception is Reality". you know its not a boner, but i think it looks like one. so it is a boner.

First of all, calling creep someone is offensive. Anyone can have a different opinion on a specific collectible and shouldn't be bashed for expressing it.

The thread has met its purpose and can be kept open if the subject is on the collectible, not a particular person... Keep it that way.

The price will fluctuate. When this thing is FIRST released, people will be paying over retail for it since there won't be as many out there. Some knucklehead will be the first guy on his block to get his, then he'll list it on eBay for a $600 buy it now and some dope will buy it. Once everyone and his grandmother receives theirs, though, you'll see the price drop to right around retail or maybe even below as eBay becomes flooded with 'em. Then once the supply thins out, the prices will go back up.

Or at least that's how these things seem to work. Heck, you can still buy the regular version for not too much over MSRP if you search Google hard enough.

Ah, the first ammendmant. There is another fallacy I could quote that deals with using a similar rational to defend an illogical argument, but that has already been met with resistance so I will defer.

"Holier than thou" would denote that I am preaching or have some religious conontation to my speech. You would be in error. I do not think that I am better than you. I do not think you are better than me. I simply try to offer a different, often overlooked perspective about societal fallacies. If more people took the time to study the logical nature of speech and method, I feel the world would be a better place. You must do what you feel is right of course.

But...I conceed on the tape dispenser. It really does look like a boner. However this strenghtens my argument that this is the most LUDICROUS piece of star wars merchandise ever to be seen in a 5th grade classroom.

my bad. when i call my friends a creep, or i get called i creep, we laugh. its funny to me. how often do you get called a creep??? its like calling someone numbnuts or nitwit. its funny. it was a lighthearted jab. it doesnt always need so black and white, does it?

You're right. Look at the Luke Sideshow. I think it originally sold for $199. And it sold out at that price from Sideshow. However now they can be found for $149 on ebay. I think the same will happen to Vader (though he is a more popular character and doesn't look like Tim Curry from Rocky Horror Show). Obviously the price drop will be relational as he is more expensive than Luke. My advice. Wait on the Vader. As he said, there will be plenty to go around for a song in 6 months.

i agree with everything you just said. i am actually very spiritual and caring, and i think the world needs to be more open minded as well. but this forum is about having fun and SW. so i figure i can take a little fun with my SW, and sometimes i might let out a "creep" blast, or a "nitwit" shot. its all in fun. Except with MR, i really do hate those shipping prices!!! those NITWITS! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

It depends on the context you're using it... but anyway let's keep this thread around the main subject: SS Vader.

Unfortunately, when dealing with written text, your tone and your intention can not truley be perceived. Sarcasm or jibes can often be lost in translation for that reason. Since you've had a history with name calling (at least in the prop forum on one occasion that I know of), I use that as the only form of "evidence" to decode your written message. So, since I don't know you from adam, I am forced to use only the text as my guide to your personality.

That opens my perception up for error, but none the less an opinion will be formed. Be careful with your text and your meaning and those errors will decrease. Or don't, it's your life.

Oh, and MR shipping does suck eggs. I think the ultimate creep, Eddie Haskill, is running the shipping department.

well then, let it be known on record that if i offend anyone with my written text, im sorry. ive been attacked with WAY worse PMs and even public messages for simply stating an opinion. so in all fairness, calling someone a creep shouldnt make me public enemy numero uno.

now, with all that behind us. can i see a bigger pic of that tape dispenser. ive never seen one, and its cracking me up.

I have a 1:4 Scale Darth Vader on order from Sideshow that I am going to be canceling sometime after midnight tonight. If anyone would like to have this order, I will change the information for the order and give it to you. I was just notified of another Wait List reservation that was sent to me for the Exclusive version of this. I no longer need the order that I currently have. Again, I will wait until about midnight before I cancel the order. If anyone wants this order, PM me. I have never switched an order like this, but I assume it's possible. Let me know, thanks.

Oh StarWarsShop.com.....I gotcha. After I left that post, I thought that might have been what you were saying. Anyway, yeah I do remember seeing that on there a few times. How much were they asking for it then? It's $362.64 shipped from Sideshow.
