Ok guys... we filled up anther one and just in time to bid farewell to Summer!

Last topics were the newer figs preview at the NYCC and the upcoming Kane Show...

Joe - I will need shelvs if you can help out. I also would like the exact same set up as last time... Bill, Me... Mike. I will have compensation for you for setting up and letting me use your shelvs.

Tweek, if I have space, you can rent it out, I'll JimmyTime it out to you for $5 an hour per square foot, lol. I'll be there Sat to set up. So far Tweek's side is the same as last, Jimmmy/Slappy/Doug/Fred/George/Carl/Stan/Val/Jason's side will be a little different with the added people, but I guess it's first come first serve on that side. I forgot who's sharing tables and what not, so when you get there, you'll have to figure it out. I'll be on the end, facing McBeardy.

I'll be there Sat, prob around noon, like last time, so those on the contract meet up with me so we can get in, if you're not on it, then we'll have to wait till a couple of us are in and set up and then swap out people.. they're picky on Sat and I don't want to step on any toes.

Joe, can you list who is on the contract? I'm not sure if I am or not, I don't recall ever hearing about it.

Jimmy, I'll give you a call over the weekend, things have been a bit hectic for me lately.

Ok, here are my questions after yesterday's panel.

Is there going to be another midnight madness sale on the 30th? I am all for hanging out again (last time was a great night), but waiting for several hours outside in late January doesn't sound good to me.

What is the Movie Heroes line? Are these are repacks (I hope).

Is this wave that is hitting (Ponda wave) the last one we are getting until January 30th?

Are many of the Clone Wars figures they showed Savage Opress, Mace, Cad, Yoda, Anakin, Aqua Droid, Plo Koon and listed as coming late January old? I have most of those (unless they've done something to them or added something new).

FO SHIZZLE, WE CHANGIN' TO DA CTW????


Tweek, did you mean use my shelves as in using them over by your tables? If so, I only have the two I had last time and plan on setting up by my table, if you mean use them as is if I had extra space, that's fine, my bro might either come with me or give me some of his stuff to sell, so not sure how much space I'll have... we'll have to see.

.
The full Revenge wave should be the last one we are officially expected to receive this year. The Ponda wave includes some Revenge figures, but not all of them. The full wave should be out soon I believe. But knowing how Hasbro futzes distribution up, we'll likely see a good chunk of those Episode 1 figures around X-Mas time.

Speaking of the Ponda wave, I was able to pickup the Walrusman and Hoth Soldier today at the Target on Rand/Willow. No Bastila Shan to be found, but they do have some leftover Revenge figures - did also take the Return Wicket. I was at a few Targets today and a couple had stuff in the back, turns out they were all the old figures (Dengars, Sandtroopers, Clones) that were supposed to be pulled by Hasbro. Obviously they never went out, so I wouldn't be surprised to see them come back out during the X-Mas rush. So be forewarned if you ask a Target employee to pull out stuff from the back, it may be 2 year old leftovers. :mad:

NYCC news seemed once again underwhelming to me, it looks like they're using a lot of 10+ year old pieces for the coming year. Sometimes it makes sense (Podracers) and other times it's utter crap (Rebel Heroes BP). Well that's ok, I'll stick to what I want, which isn't much, and focus on the Kenner vintage.

I have no shelvs at the moment so please lmk if you find any good sales.. I know I wont be there Saturday so... I will need a total of 3 badges Sun morn for myself and my buddy with his helper. Everyone can have them after we get in though. I think Im gonna sell the SDCC Death Star set with the Revenge figs... I think Im totally done 100% with the 3 3/4. All the lifesize things Ive gotten latley is just head and shoulders above the rest IMO

Is the "full Revenge set" the set that was in the SDCC Death Star? What other figures other than the four or five Vintage (and the Clone Wars figures) that are hitting right now should come out this year?

Oh yea... sorry bout that Bill. and yes Bill... the set I am talking about is the death star set from this years SDCC... I hate to let it go (not 100%.. 98 right now) but Id rather have some extra $$$ for items coming through in the next few months and my last 1:1 purchase for awhile.. the SS EX Vader bust... I really cant wait for SS to show their full size Yoda.. I picked up their Crumb and its beautiful so I can imagine what they are going to do for a full body Yoda. Anywho... I just cant wait to be there and set up. I wish I didnt have to work... Id love to set up Saturday,.. actually... Im going to see if I can switch days off.

Good chat w/ Jason about Kane tho. Lookin' forward to it guys!
Yeah can't wait. Jimmy give me a call on Saturday if/when you're planning to drive down.

Sidenotes:

* I have a shirtless Savage Oppress if anyone is still looking for it.
* I'm looking for a cheap vintage Jabba to complete a set that I want to sell at Kane. The Jabba I have is missing his right arm, LOL!

Hope Bosski got em...otherwise I will check the local Ebay Sellers pages.

Just to clarify, I have no luck at all. Bad night, I didn't sleep at all. I read about the land speeder and tauntauns showing up in the recently founds. 2 of each in a box at 25 each. They seem to have hit in several states. I did not find them myself.

Got a RFT...so he will be open and ONE Fett form is yours Tweek.

I will do a shelf count since I am bringing some youths for heavy lifting (my 18yr old cousin and his friend).

My chip clip holders and a method to hang them.

ANY idea what is hot at the tables...My son's Godparents called and might want me to put her original Cabbage Patch dolls...(really..but ok if it keeps people travelling and stopped at our tables that is fine with me.)

Jimmy, I saw a packaged, still wrapped in the plastic ties Blaster carring case at a local shop for $25, think it'd be worth it to snag it and bring it to Kane or is that the going price?

Don't encourage the guy...

I saw the landspeeder today. Hopefully I'll get one after Kane. Gonna try to keep to just having my core favorites and that one was always one of my favs when I was little, maybe I'll get the Blueray packs so I can set up that scene with some Sandtroopers surrounding them.. I dunno... maybe I'll just wait, lol... next thing I know, I'll be $100 in the hole for a lil' scene I want to set up.
