  1. This is exactly why I sell now too. Going back to the hoping to get my collection for free. I don't buy everything anymore. I used to collect all SW, Joes, DC and Marvel, now I'm picky. So if I have a chance to be into my stuff for free or better I will do it... No soapbox here just a simple question asked and answered...
  2. FYI you asked a question and I answered it. I don't want nor need anyone's sympathy especially yours. I certainly did not pull the oh poor me card. Fortunately your eyes matter to only you, you what they say about opinions... Figure swappers are stealing from a store. I purchase legitimately from a store and sometimes resell it. I can live with myself as I am doing nothing wrong. If you knew me, which you don't, you would know how I've helped more than I've sold. After that I take care of myself. But I don't to explain myself to you. Take care and god bless...
  3. First you say you gave a set to your brother, later you said the last 3 sets were sold by "your brother", to buy down the cost... which one is it and what's buy down the cost mean anyway? They weren't cheap enough?You're either helping people out, or you're scalping.. I don't believe in those scalpers that buy stuff, throw them on ebay and then claim they do it to help others...Anyway, I'm glad I'm not a huge collector anymore, lol.. this is one of the things that ruined it. So you are one of those guys who tries to decipher every word huh? Honestly not that it matters but I gave a set to my brother for himself then with the remainder sets he sold them as I had no interest in doing so. My goal for years has been to get the cost of my collection to $0. So that is what I mean by buying the costs down. Now I am almost positive no one put a gun to anyone's head to purchase these above an "assumed" cost. I have helped many in the past (including today with 90% off Legos) and have sold for profit. If I buy something for 75% off and sell it for retail did I scalp it? Lines get blurry as some point... Oh and I've been unemployed for a year now as well... Does that make a difference? The "problem" here is someone didn't get what he thought he should for $5.99. And because someone beat him to it (and he assumes beat him to everything but doesn't care to hear the actual truth) he now would have to pay higher prices because that is what the market is currently dictating. All again because over a 3 day period (yes 3 days) someone else beat him to it. And don't forget this is around Christmas when mom and dad are buying up everything in sight. If this "scum" as you say (nice play on words) got more than the 5 sold sets, how come he has no more up for sale? Because he has no more. After taking care of a few buddies those 5 were it. So guess what? Someone else got the rest. Think what you want but this guy bought about 40 pieces total. You assume more but truth be told that is it. This may be hard to believe but there really are other collectors in the Sac area who go around and hit every store that don't belong to RS. But hey no biggie right? We keep going round and round but no biggie? I tried but to avail. Think what you want, I'm done with this. See you in the aisles...
  4. Arrow thank you for saying what I wanted to and doing better than I. Clam I only checked this thread yesterday to see your posts so no I didn't help you on this as I saw it too late but yes I have offered to help you in the past. Now I've spent too much time on this. Good luck to you sir on your hunts...
  5. oops... it was scalpers, even though I didn't want to believe it was. I just saw that one guy in my town put 5 sets on ebay and made 385 bucks. Hey.. I can't blame the guy for doing it (I might have sold an extra set too if I found more than one at a store, but there is no way I would have went to every store and bought every set... and we know each store got 2 sets at least)... but I just hate that I missed out because these rebelscum.com guys went to every single store in town (we have 5 or 6 Ross stores) one morning and bought everything in sight.. and I just wanted a couple Range Vipers lolApparently starwars collectors are worse than hotwheels collectors Just for the record I personally found 6 complete sets in 1 of the 4 Ross stores in my neck of the woods that is not Sacramento. Of those 5 one went to my brother a huge Joe collector, one went to another Joe collector here in town who is a hisstanker and I kept a set. The other 3 were sold by my brother who wanted to buy down the costs. There are 3 other Ross's in my area and I went to 2 of them over the course of the next few days as they are really close. Only Air Gliders and Ram Cycles but I left them all. You can say what you what about "the rebelscum guys" but I've offered to help you in the past and will continue to do so. The guy you refer to has helped us get all of our DCUC at $5 and below for the last 5 waves and takes care of anyone who asks including his hisstank, fwoosh and rebelscum friends. And those sets he scored he got on 2 different days not one morning. BTW, he's a Joe collector first and SW oh about 4th... Now you can continue to be pissed and say what you want it really doesn't matter to me. But if you need some help looking for things I will keep you in mind. And on that note do you need a POC Vamp, Black HISS or Fury for cost?
  6. At $25 I was not fan of this either but since I found a couple at Ross today (along with more Furys) for $11.99 I am growing to like it alot...
  7. I'm hoping to find this wave on clearance down the road....would love to get Alan Scott and Tyr but not at full price. Have the previous Walmart waves ever been on clearance? Actually, I've never seen any DCUC go on clearance at Walmart. Actually there's a WM in this area that has DCUC at $5 and has been that way for about a year now. Without too much detail I haven't paid more that $5 for the last 4 waves... Also I was at another WM today that had at least 8 cases of Wave 14 on the floor with more in back. Not sure if this is at the expense of other stores but I know where to send those looking for some...
  8. Found a bunch of these today as well. Can't beat the price...
  9. This is not necessarily true. Looks like WM will auto ship this wave to every store. The amount each store gets is based on sku volume. I have a buddy who has been moving case after case of wave 13 out of his local WM for about 2 months now. This store now has 150 figures coming that the toy manager did not order but said is being auto shipped. Needless to say we will be camping out there for the next week...
  10. Thanks wheeljack35 for the tip, I went to my local Big K and grabbed 2 at 49.99 each plus used that $5 coupon for an out the door price of $49.04. So the unofficial sale is in store as well...
  11. I picked up 3 and friend grabbed 3 using coupons on each to buy my cost down to $3 each. No variants or correct MM's but I'll use those to return to Target later when they get hopefully corrected ones. I'll also return and rebuy using coupons the full case I got 2 weeks ago. Now back to bed...
  12. Well there you go, I guess I just needed to wait a few more mins. Time to print up more coupons!! Luckily the stores in my area have not put out there cases yet...
  13. Anyone else hear that the Kmart promo in association with the release of Wave 15 is that the figures will be $7.75 ea in honor of the 75th anniversary of DC? Suppose to start Oct. 24th. If that's the case will definitely need to buy another set to return since I will just miss the 7 day price adjustment period...
  14. For those not finding this wave yet on the shelf it pays to just ask. For the most part Kmart is a lot easier to deal with than WM, Target or TRU. Take any DCUC figure to someone with a gun and ask them to check stock. A buddy has gotten 3 cases pulled this way and I got 2 but mine were wave 13 unfortunately. No variants but I do now have a set and I'm good. I need the MM variant but I'll wait to see if they fix the biceps hopefully when Target starts to get this...
  15. A buddy in Sac got his shipping notice today from BBTS so that's at least 1 e-tailer that has them or had them I should say since they sold out...
