    I'm done!!

    You're a blahblahblahblah. First, the price of manufacturing and tooling toys is only going to go up because the materials are getting more expensive. That's going to be reflected in the retail price. It's called making a profit. A bottle of soda used to cost 5 cents. Now it's upwards of a dollar. Do you think that's because the companies are trying to push soda sales online? No, it's called inflation and manufacturing cost increases. Second, part of the hobby is spending way too much money on insignificant crap that only serves to make you happy. If the hobby's too expensive for you, my advice is to blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah Or you could just blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahI'm sure that will really help. blahhhh Edit by Card- okay kids, lets play nice, no need for name calling.

    Grow up. Free enterprise and capitalism are not illegal. Yet. I guess we should accept any and all business practices...o ok, I guess deregulation that cost millions of American jobs is ok because its free enterprise and capitalism.....yay, then someone buys up figures to resell at a higher profit...yay, yeah we don't like it. So go find a hobby where you won't run into it? I'd be hard pressed to compare the resale at a premium of action figures to business practices that lead to jobs lost and a tanking economy. If you honestly think they're even close to comparable, I have some swampland in the Everglades to sell you. For all the whining and moaning about scalpers, you know damn well that you've spent more than retail price on a figure you wanted. If you've even paid $0.01 higher than retail to an individual that is selling a figure he bought at a retail store, you have absolutely no right to cry about scalping, because you've contributed to it. I'm convinced the only reason half of you even collect figures isn't because of a love of the property, but because you're masochists who aren't happy unless you're bitching about not getting everything handed to you on a silver platter. Part of the hobby is doing whatever you can within your means to obtain a hard-to-find figure. If every figure was produced in the millions, and you all had no problem finding them, your interest would be lost because it would be too easy to get them. But God forbid someone get what you want before you could get to it, or tries to make a profit to recoup some of the gas they spent trying to find the figures they want. They're automatically a scalper because they did something you didn't like. Boo God damned hoo.

    Found a full case on the shelf at Wal-Mart in Houston, TX. Only collect the Bat-family and rogues, so I grabbed a Bats, Joker and Man-Bat and left the rest.
  6. I'm starting a new job, and this is to help with my car payment this month in case I don't start as soon as I'd like, so no trading right now. I don't really want to sell it, but I need the cash.
  7. MOC Yellow Stalker up on eBay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...em=260285408652
  8. Great figure. I had to modify the crap out of mine to be 100% happy with it by putting the Takara cape on it, fixing the triangles, and a few other things, but damn he's nice.
  9. Go back to English class, for the love of God.
  10. No interest in Manga Batman. At all. Looks like crap. Of course, I hated Gotham Knight, so yeah.
  11. Bingo. Every piece is hand painted. Every bit of clothing is tailored. Have you ever seen clothing on a 1/6 scale figure that consistently fits so well? They don't look like doll clothes. They look like clothes. That alone drives the cost up, plus the material they use for the clothes is almost as high quality as what would be used in real clothing. Then you have the accessories, multiple heads, etc. All painstakingly detailed and, when needed, hand-painted. They mass produce statues, that don't move or have any sort of tailoring, for the most part, and they tend to be in the $300 - $1,000 range. Just because these are technically action figures doesn't mean they aren't works of art. My Hot Toys figures are the best looking pieces I own, and I've got a few statues myself. Nothing comes close to them.
  12. Not sure, I haven't tried it.
  13. Look. I respect the living hell out of anyone that has the courage to be who they are and tell their family, friends, and other loved ones the truth about themselves rather than live a lie, regardless of whether they can accept it or not. My point is that, at least in my case, before you respond to something I post, at least read it first before you comment on it. I clearly said I was at least getting the v2 Joker head, but for the 2nd or 3rd time, you posted and responded to something I never said. It happened before, I can't remember which thread it was, but I think it was the original HT thread. I said something, and you read it completely wrong and went on a rant about what you thought I said, when in actuality I said the complete opposite. I don't feel you should be anything, to be quite honest. I'm merely presenting to you a couple of quibbles I have, and I hope that at least in the future with me, you'll actually read what I say before launching a reply based on what you think I said, rather than what I actually did say. And I've spent 27 years coming to terms with the fact that I'm basically Patrick Bateman, though I've managed not to murder any hookers yet. So hold that over my head the next time you get pissed at me, and we'll call it even.
