  1. Many 'collectors' hate me because I am the opposite of this. I open everything. I did this back in the day with GI Joe and Marvel, and now I do it with Hot Wheels and other diecast. I see the cries of the MIB people every time I post the fallout of a good cracking session. The way I look at it, I don't collect cardboard. I collect the toys. I want them free of their plastic prisons. I want to see the colors, the details, the articulation and movement the way they were meant to be seen. Up close and out of the package. I want to pose my action figures in action poses. I want to race m
  2. First, let me preface this by saying I am one of the older members on here. My journey started around 2004, and there have been multiple long term absences from time to time. So, some of what I 'remember' may have happened before many of the current members even came around, or I may just be misremembering it completely. I seem to remember back in the day there was a section called 'The Garage'. It was a small section of the forums where the diecast car guys could get together and talk. There wasn't many back then, and I wasn't one of them by any means, but they had their spot. The d
  3. OK, first let me just say I don't agree with the OP at all. I believe if you purchase anything with the intent to immediately resell at a higher price, you are scalping. If you are buying up all of the stock, creating a false sense of demand with the intent to drive up said price, you are scalping. If you are army building, or the items are for your own personal use or consumption, then more power to you. You found the goods, it's your score. Enjoy. The one question I do pose to you all is this: What is the timeline for it to be determined scalping? I'll give you an examp
  4. Found these guys while digging through my boxes again. The BAF Sentinel is missing the tentacles, otherwise complete. Both Galactus and the other Sentinel still work fine and are missing nothing. Red Goliath and Skrull are in perfect shape. Would love to let these all go to a new home together. If buying as a lot, I'd let them go for $500, plus actual shipping. If you want individuals, let me know and we can try to work something out.
  5. I'll say they go with the Ghost Hawk. It's a small flying craft to combat the recently released Fang. Not too big, not too small. Could still be priced at the $20-$25 price point and not seem too outrageous. Plus, they have two versions of it from the 25th line and the Rise of Cobra era that they can choose from.
  6. This is a good way of breaking things down. I think the metal rivets is a great feature to focus on when telling the eras apart. The quality of the modern O-Rings should not be held against that of the Vintage era. When I use the term 'modern' when describing Joes, it is solely for the non O-ring figures of the 25th Anniversary and beyond. Which is funny because in the 2000's, 'modern' was used for the new non-Vintage era figures. I feel like there were a few gems in the modern O-rings, but not that much that I feel I need to track anything down from them if I already missed it.
  7. So, I have gone back and forth several times on this subject. When the 25th line began to hit, I was very much against it. Especially the diaper crotches of the first run. I had also been back in the collecting game for about 4 years at that point and had amassed a large RAH style collection. The modern style figures didn't really trigger any nostalgia on my part because I had spent those last years reliving my childhood dreams of grabbing up all the figures and vehicles I had always wanted as a kid, but never had the money for. My nostalgia was already used up with toys that I actually r
  8. I just found a carded 25th Snake Eyes in my boxes of long forgotten Joes. Wanna work out a trade?
  9. I have been very blessed to have a large amount of what others would call 'grail pieces.' However, there has been 3 major ones that I've never owned, either as a child or as an adult. Terror Drome USS Flagg Defiant If I can get my hands on those 3, I would consider my search pretty much done.
  10. Entrances this year seemed so weird without the fans. Canned, recorded reactions and countdowns were ok, but can never truly mimic a live crowd's reaction.
  11. Giving you guys, and the guys at Marvelous News a shot at this before I put it up on eBay. EDIT: Adding price. $160 shipped.
  12. Looks like things died around here. That's a shame. I do so love my pro wrestling. I've been watching since I was old enough to sit and watch TV, so almost 4 decades now. I've seen the Rock n Wrestling era give way to the Attitude era to Ruthless Aggression ... and so on and so on. My favorites have varied over the years, but never seemed to go along the with the norm. I guess I've always been a bit of a 'smart fan,' having been able to predict most of the big matches throughout the years based on how I saw the 'business' was going. The last few years have been brutal for me though beca
  13. For a long time, I had displayed my Joe collection proudly. A few years ago, I moved into a much smaller apartment. I had to justify even bringing the Joes with us and not putting them into storage. Unfortunately, they now live their lives in boxes and plastic containers. I think them being put out of sight is part of the reason I moved onto collecting Hot Wheels. I needed a collecting fix, and I could display so many more of the smaller cars than I could the Joes. But, every now and then, I pull the boxes out from the closet, or under the bed, and look at parts of my collection, remembe
  14. Not a fan of repaints, but I am a huge Soundwave fan. He was my first 'official' Transformer as a kid, so he's always had a special place for me. I don't even mind him being that Hiss Tank. I could see myself trying to get that Hiss somewhere down the road.
