  1. http://shop.ebay.com/dubloondude/m.html?_trksid=p4340.l2562 Couple of these auctions are still really low... Lots of variants!
  2. Yeah, I'll confirm that. Only on one card I found... which leads me to believe the cards are stamped, cut, and passed off to assembly with figures already packed in blisters before they're joined/pressed. Simply because out of the case I saw opened, only one card had the heavy embossed foil stamping. You're right, it looks 10 times better than the standard metallic undercoating alone.
  3. It's simple supply and demand. If there are enough people out there trying to form complete collections, including variants, then the limited number of these that hit the market will continue to rise in price. I recall someone from LA selling a bunch of yellow stalkers in November, at $80 a pop. That seemed crazy at the time. Looking back, you could have made a decent profit off those by holding on to them. Think of it like this... in coin collecting... there's the 1909 SVDB Lincoln Wheat Penny. Those go for thousands. Do coin collectors say "oh that's ridiculous, it's only a pen
  4. It's true, most of the high-priced auctions go without bids. A vacation to Washington (I'm from Southern Ca) has reassured me that the supply and demand issue is at the heart of the perceived problem. There are relatively few auctions showing up on ebay from Oregon and Washington, compared with SoCal, AZ, and FLA... and there are just as few joes on the shelves up here. I've checked stores in southern WA, and northern OR at this point, and only seen a few second release wave 3 leftovers, and the remnants of two wave 4 cases. The thing you gotta remember, when you're drooling over Cr
  5. A paint pen probably won't achieve the same effect as foil... although trying something like that on a card is more likely to cause it to look worse than better... just keep them out of the sun (UV = bad) and in a relatively low-humidity environment.
  6. Call me crazy, but I'd pick Airtight and Eels.
  7. The sculpts on the twins are absolutely fantastic. It's how I imagine the originals looked... of course a quick reference against the real thing proves my instinct wrong. Perhaps if the oringinals looked this nice, I wouldn't have smashed them all when I was 12 years old.
  8. Prices seem pretty decent here: google 'action figure protectors' cool, so would you recommend the original starcase? what about for the comic packs or a figure like roadblock with a bigger bubble? The starcases seem to have a little more depth to them, so you could handle a taller bubble probably. But I wouldn't know, I open one set of figures and send the other ones to my nephews...
  9. Pretty awesome, how long did all that take to put together?
  10. Not bad, what kind of putty are you using?
  11. Prices seem pretty decent here: google 'action figure protectors'
  12. As long as the figs have "modified" crotches, it sounds like they should be okay.
  13. Well I *will* admit that perhaps my response to your invitation was a little immature, and I apologize if my comment was misinterpreted as slander towards your action figure club. But I stand by my statements, anyone who buys more than their fare share is depriving other people of something wonderful, and for that they should feel ashamed. I'm mostly just blown away that there are clubs of people who hang out to buy hard to find toys at local retailers... then again I've never attended a comic convention (which I would imagine attracts these sorts in droves), and so that's probably why
  14. Well if that's all you do, I guess it sounds alright... but perhaps you should reconsider your slogan "Join or die". To someone who just got back from searching fruitlessly for a recently released wave, it almost sounds like you're holding my team hostage, asking extortion fees to allow them to join the ranks of my other fellow Joes. You see, my first impression when you say "collector club" is the 45 year old guy with a pony tail who stands at the Target entrance at 7:45am, then immediately as they open the doors, follows some crazy pre-planned route through the store, running when he k
