  1. Paul, just out of curiosity, what do you collect? G.I.Joe, Transformers, He-man ??? Also, are you a loose figure collector or a MOC collector? A toy club sounds cool, all you need are a dozen more people and we're good to go. Sal
  2. Dude, that's an awesome setup. Very clean and organized, especially given that everything is loose. Admit it though, that's gotta be a #$## to dust. @loll@ Sal
  3. No luck here synch. I was considering it, but after watching the guy open up a fresh box of kirks and start pulling out mangled and bent cards i refused to spend a dime on them. This is a con for collectors run by supposed proffesionals, wouldn't you think they of all people would try and keep a limited edition collectors item like that from getting ruined? I'm waiting for the skyway show in a month or two, now that's a true toycon. Sal
  4. Well, between me and my brother we didn't get a thing that we actually went for. He's trying to polish off a marvel comics gijoe run with no luck, and the comics i was looking for to finish my silver age jla run were all there....but i refuse to pay double or triple guide value for fair to good comics. He ended up with a few robin comics and a few other miscelaneous books. As for me, i almost bought the gijoe Rhino vehicle but siver snail had it overpriced too. I ended buying some foreign porn from a dealer @firedevil@ , and i got my girlfriend a PILLOW FIGHT LEAGUE t-shirt...those girls were
  5. Went to the show today. Major dissapointment. It was in a new, bigger hall yet it felt way more crowded than in the past. Took a ten minute walk through the maze that is the toronto convention centre, 2 hours in line to buy tickets, and 45 minutes in line to get in, comic book area, 2 isles, toys and assorted stuff about 1-2 isles, manga 3 isles, horror con about a third of the freakin hall, video game areas scattered everywhere, one entire room the size of a movie theatre dedicated solely to those freakin card games kids play, famous people all along the outside perimeter of the hall, lines f
  6. I'm going, but i'm not expecting a great showing of toys. This con has diversified itself so much that toys are the last thing people are selling. You'de have more luck finding a bootlegged copy of some 80s' tv series than you would any vintage toys. @grumpy@
  7. Great series. I'm definitely picking it up.
  8. No prob hawk. It's about time a COPS site popped up. Any idea about how much the average figure goes for, and which, if any are rare or hard to come by? Sal
  9. Great site hawk. Trust me when i say this toyline is not forgotten. Me and my brother are both eagerly awaiting the DVD release and we've both been frantically searching for figures for the past few years. I've been looking for any MOC figures with no luck, do you have any extra MOC your willing to part with? Sal
  10. Does anyone have a phone number for this place or a link to a store website?
  11. It's ok, I don't find any of it offensive, you as a person, I find offensive. As for the US, hey there's some good and there's lots of bad. Do I give two bits of monkey crap how you feel about us to the north or the rest of the world, nope, cause we know how we feel towards "MOST" of the attitude of the US. You write it's a good thing the french are rioting and burning their cities and all that, well sheesh guess what, it was a good thing Al Queda smashed a plane into the WTC in my eyes. Does that offend you??? Southern states were hit hard by multiple hurricanes, people were forced

  13. When i was a kid i had a pet rabbit, George, in a cage in the backyard. I'd pet him and talk to him. Then one day i came home from school and George was gone. My dad told me he had escaped and ran away. Well, the following weekend we went to my grandparents for dinner, and wouldn't you know it, we were having rabbit for dinner. At the time i was like 10 or 11 so i thought nothing of it. I didn't learn that it was George until i was in my early twenties i believe. My mom had let it slip out in some conversation she was having with an uncle. The worst part of it all is that to this day i cannot
  14. Mmmm mmmmm mmmmm....rabbit tastes delicious. @popcorn@
  15. ..can't wait. Anyone remember how many episodes there were? http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=4468
  16. I seldom consider myself in a slump, and I have less varied tastes now then I used to. I used to buy something every week, but now its more like every month and that's manageable. The toy hobby can be addictive in the truest sense and addictions of any kind are not healthy. Moderation is really smart and its less devastating to the pocketbook. One need only pay attention to the one or two folks a month that post "must sell/need cash" threads to realize that spending too much on toys can really hit when hard times happen. And folks, please heed a lesson from my own experience--I we
  17. I'm never in a toy slump. My collecting habits cover a large variety of action figures, mostly from the 80s' and 90s', so theres never a lack of something else to go after. :-) Sal
  18. I believe Lady Jay was killed off recently. Sal
  19. What stores currently carry the Elektra? I've been loking for one for my gf forever. Sal
  20. Poor ? Before it got totalled that was one heckuva nice Jetta you guys had. @hmmm@ Ya, this kinda confused me too. $40,000 for a Jetta no problem...but no cash for meds....hmmmmm.
  21. My girlfriend rocks. For my birthday a few days ago she got me an Al Bundy statue from Entertainment Earth. This thing is awesome. Gonna see about getting peg, kelly and bud as well. WOAHHH BUNDY!!!!
  22. Forgive me but I'm assuming thats Canadian dollars. Cause if it was $40,000 US, that better be one tricked out Jetta. Yeah that's Canadian. It was fully loaded (leather, CD/MP3 Player, Tiptronic Shifter, sunroof, 2.5 5cyl. automatic engine, air/sidecurtain airbags, 16'' Alloy Wheels) RIP my little Jetta, you will always be "Betta" in my mind. No offence shark, but that was a heck of a lot of money to spend on a Jetta. My dad used to work for VW and i've been in every model since the rabbit. Heck, i own a Golf myself and i've always been a loyal VW fan but i had no idea they
  23. White Cheddar Kraft Dinner is the best. Mmmmm mmmm good.
  24. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. As usual we're left in the dark. I have yet to see Sigma 6 anywhere in Toronto at least. Anyone in Canada actually spot some yet?
