This forum is about Star Wars collecting only, but I'm in a good mood, so I'll let this one pass, just this once. But remember, in future keep your threads on topic.

Yeh leXX. We just need threads. Collecting is already as slow. :(

I collect:

Foreign Money (Alittle bit)
The new Quarters
PEZ
Baseball Bobble Heads
Baseball Cards
Baseball Action Figures

I used to collect GI Joes. I don't have enoguh money to buy those though. The last one I got is the JFK one.

I was gonna post this but never did because of what leXX said. But she gave us permission :D Thanks leXX!!!

GI Joes/ Ultimate Soldiers/ Dragons/ Blue Box soldiers. I get all sorts of Joes, but only WWII for the last 3 brand names.

Planet of the Apes. I got a few Medicoms (the coolest figures for PotA EVER never released in US and sell for 20-40 each :(), the crappy Hasbro ones from a few years back, and even... even the 2001 movie figures :o

Indiana Jones. All the vintage and even the 12" one. I got 'The Relic Hunter', a nice 12" ripoff of Indy with a much better likeness to Ford then the Toys McCoy one. Got a custom of Indy as a German, and 2 Professor Jones (the second one looks more like Connery, but unlike the first, is in the wrong outfit :rolleyes: ) I have the Disney one, and cannot wait for the second wave of Indy guys :D Know when those are coming out anyone?

Batman. Well, not anymore. I have all my Batman toys I played with on display though. I will retire them soon when worse comes to wose and need it for SW guys.

Xena. Haha, yeah, I just packed them up to make room for some soldiers and SW guys. Maybe if I ever get room, they'll once again be shelf worthy :)

And.... well.... Star Trek. Playmates and Art Asylum. I got 9" and small. I got all the crew members from each series in the 9" assortment (except for the Klingon chick from Voyager, they never made them :mad: ) I cannot wait for the original series Art Asylum guys :cool:

I got tons of crap from movies and other things (Jurassic Park, Congo, Waterworld, Spawn, etc etc etc) in storage. I learned my lesson after selling off my Turtles. I was sitting on a gold mine! They might go up in price over the years. You never know.... ;)

lets see, some star trek toys, not many now, x files,simpsons, varuous army things, things that have to do with the marines(pins ect), pretty much anything from mcflaren toys(matrix,spawn so on),im gonna start with bond and indy.

Indy, eh?

Here's some MUST haves.

Vintage Raiders of the Lost Ark figures from Kenner. Very expensive for a few, but not hard to come by. At least here with all the toyshows. eBay is good. I have Indy, Belloq, German Mechanic, and Toht on the card. The rest I have loose along with 2 of 3 playsets made. One thing I need for the collectin to be complete in my eyes is the Ark that came with the 3rd playset!

12" Relic Hunter. Brian had it. I got mine from some military action figure store for only 110 dollars. It's a 12" generic Indy. Don't think it looks bad. It's the best out there, save for the hat. Not terrible, but I've seen better.

Disney Indys. I got the first one they made of him in the leather jacket. I can't wait for the second wave of them as you know.

Misc things to have.

Vintage Temple of Doom figures from LJN. VERY hard to come by. My Indy is a beat up peice of junk I was lucky to snag for 30 bucks at a show. Repro hat from Brian. I got the Giant Thugee loose and on the card and Mola Ram from a dealer at the toy show I now refer to as... Mola Ram :p

Custom Figures. eBay has tons. I got 2 different Henry Jones Srs (12") from there. Plus, I got a 12" custom of Indy as a German at a toyshow. I had my eye on his Indy in tux, Lao Che, Belloq, and Sallah. This fall... this fall...

I have quite a few GI Joes Taters. Having 1 or 2 figures of soemthing doesn't count as colelcting, like X-Files, you have Mulder, Scully, and an Alien. thats not really colelcting. I have atleast 20 GI Joes, and thats good, since they are expensive.

First things I'm gonna start collecting without my dad and his money!

Matrix - I plan on just Neo and Trinity from the lobby scene, but may get more if I like Reloaded enough.

Lord of the Rings - Armies of Middle-Earth. They're cool little minatures of characters or army builders. Cheap too. Plan on getting the main characters and a few army builders like the Orc 3 packs. I know, I know! I don't like these geeks either into AD&D and LotR and all, but I like LotR for the movies and books. Not for the Elvish and all the chronological crap written on them. I reserve that much useless ficitonal knowledge for SW alone :D

Might I ask how common the McFarlen Sammy Sosa was? Kerry Wood was around, but Sosa was impossible! I was lucky enough to snag some Starting Line Ups rare here in Chicago-land up in Wisconsin's Walmarts (along with some SW and ST if memory serves....) I'd have gotten Wood if I saw Sammy :)

By the way, off eBay? I managed to snag Indy Disneys Wave 2. All 5 for 62 dollars! That's less than 13 bucks a peice :) (my guesstimate of what Disney's gift shop will charge)

Sammy isn't that rare. I have him. Its just they release about 2 of the hometeam's figure. I know, I never saw Manny, Nomar, Pedro, or Derek Lowe in stores. We had to order them off EBay, and I still haven't gotten Derek Lowe yet.....

Oh I've seen that at TRU, but the box is always smashed up and it wasn't looking too cool. I don't look at the Matrix stuff to often, go straight to the SW and military, and am usually outta there.

Now that I got to get Neo and Trinity, WOOSH! Gah! I'll have to look at the other TRUs in my area. Hope I can get those 2. Those are the only Matrix ones I want. And that TI83 I had to buy for Trig? Yeah, no LotR for me :( :p

Yeah, I've been running outta room for the past few years. But, Z, it's Indy! Indy is the greatest thing, second to Star Wars in my opinion.

Already taken care of!

Sure, I had no room in my Indy display (which you haven't seen) but with the Starting Lineup Baseball guys hanging up on this one thing packed away for a toy show we'll sell at, there was room for them! :D

I'll take a general shot of my basement to show you guys how big my basement is and how many collections we got going. Like I said, Batman is gonna go soon :( But it is for a greater good. Star Wars of course! :p

I really wanna take them out! I want them all out! Are you taking yours out? Do you have the original Indy with the jacket from 2000? The face on the jacketless one is much better ;)

12" Indys. (http://home.comcast.net/~pahnke6/wsb/media/150725/site1132.jpg) The Indy as a German and two Professor Henry Jones Srs are customs. The Indy in normal outfit is the relic hunter.

Disney Indys! (http://home.comcast.net/~pahnke6/wsb/media/150725/site1135.jpg) With the schwatztica on the German's crate and it being Disney, I have a feeling it may be retired and be super rare :cool: Well, not for you Taters, but it'd be cool for me :p

Brian gets 100 for the set of 5 new Indys. I saw a set of 6 (the 1st edition one included) for 100 on eBay. IS Taters back yet or what?

Now for why I came here:

Well of Souls eBay Auction (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3160134525&category=2622&rd=1)

Or, if you have crappy connections, here's the description:

You are bidding on the Well of the Souls playset from Raiders of the Lost Ark. In MINT condition with original box (not in mint condition). Includes base, two arches, replica Ark of the Covenant with carrying poles and cover, two torches, 14 snakes, grappling hook with string, mummy and wall with "breakaway" section. Assembly is required; approx. 12"L x 7-1/2"W x 8"H when assembled. Will be shipped DISASSEMBLED with box.
HEY! I mentioned a bonus, didn't I?! Original set did NOT come with action figures. However, I've added an Indiana Jones action figure with pistol and whip plus a Sallah action figure with torch!! Arms on both move at shoulders; legs move at hips and knees. NOTE: Indiana's right thumb broke off years ago and was re-glued (pistol is too large for hand). Although right arm has "quick draw" action, I strongly recommend against using it because the thumb might come off again.

The pictures look very nice, but the pistol that comes with Indy is actually too small for his hand so I have a feeling it may not be the original. Nevertheless, I don't need it for that scene. Wish me luck :D

Anyhow, I went to my hobby shop in search of it but could not find it. I did get those 7" Monty Python Knights and they are spectacular :D

Lines said are:

Arthur: "I am Arthur, King of the Britains!", "You stupid, bastard! You got no arms left!" and "The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch!"

Bedevere: "What if we were to make this giant, wooden badger....", "What do you do with witches?", and "How do you know so much about swallows?"

Robin: "I am Robin of Camelot!", "Well, I am a Knight of the Round Table.", and "RUN AWAY!!!"

My newest Indy acquisition:

Click (http://www.indianajones.com/collecting/news/img/20040302_bg.jpg)

Muppet Babies is the reason I had a desire to see Star Wars (along with looking at vintage figures at antique stores when I was really young). Anyhow, I had already seen Indy before SW and Kermit as Indy was my favorite thing outta the show :p

Sadly, the new SW store is being gay so they took it down and I gotta wait until I place an order. Really hope I get one to make up for that Kirk.

I set up wave 2 of the ST Art Asylum Original Series guys. Very cool figures. :)

Went to the toyshow and the only SW stuff I saw I needed was that furry guy (not Jquille) from the sailbarge and Dengar. Both were 15+ so I left them there.

But I did get some very nice things.

One, a custom 'Commander' Bond. It's Sean Connery in the Commander's uniform from You Only Live Twice. I got it from the guy who had those custom Indys. He also has a Connery in white tux from the opening of Goldfinger I might get. The cool thing is he has a cigarrette in his fingers! :D

A better find was a carded LJN Indt ToD. It was 130 and I asked if they could do better and they said 115! I took him without hesitating. His card is C8 or higher but the bubble is yellowed. It's hard to find those guys without a yellow bubble, let alone on the card.

Hrm, I'm in a tight spot here. I need all these things but have no money! My b-day is coming up though so let's see what I want:

Video Card
Watch
Matrix Guys

I wanna get Neo and Trin Lobby shootout (still) and Smith and Neo from Revolutions. I don't see them for a nice, cheap price so I can only get all the Matrix guys or one of those other things!

If I am to get the Matrix guys, I wanna know if Revolutions Neo has to be up in the air. Can he stand on the ground too and fight Smith? I'll probably get them anyways (though I'll need that video card soon).

06-08-2004, 03:46 PM
Well, are you planning on getting any games soon for the PC? If so, get the video card, Matrix, then watch (Who needs a watch anyways? :p).

The matrix figures are cool, but you can do so much more with a new video card. And besides, the figures will go down a litle moe if you wait I bet. ;)

06-08-2004, 05:47 PM
Well I suppose I shoulda said I planned on getting the Matrix Online.... Yes, I know MMORGs suck but it just looks so cool! I signed up to beta it but doubt I'll be selected. I need a new card.

Yeah, who needs a new watch?! :p

I'll get Smith vs Neo first and work on the Lobby set later. :)

FYI neo cannot stand, however, he has two possible heights at which to fly, on, so close to the groud (WHICH IS WHERE I HAVE HIM) that it looks like a standing pose.

btw,z, the prices will rise on those figures, not drop.
i know you dont read much up on toys, but all the matris figures from series 2 and 3 have risen, and the only one to considerably drop from the 1st is tank.

I don't like the non-McFarlane ones. I was considering getting a Smith from them but he looked.... well, compared to the McFarlane one crappy.

Yeah, I saw Smith once in the store. I didn't realize Brian got so much for him. I see a good auction for Neo and Smith together on eBay for 10-15 dollars. I'll try to get that. The last few didn't have any bids on them.

Oh, and I was talked outta getting MxO. MMORGs suck; I don't care if it looks cool :p

They might if some other people made a kijillion Matrix toys. But that's not gonna happen. Indy guys aren't going down in price just because they don't make a million of them like Hasbro does for SW ;)

I'm still getting the video card over the watch for my birthday, but I'm using all the money I have left in my pocket to get the Matrix guys over a female lizard.... I'm only getting Smith and Neo, I want to get Neo and Trin still but will have to wait until I find a good deal (and some money :p).

I had the chance to get Smith and Neo 'Buy it Now' for 14.99 but passed it up! I am such a jackass! :mad: :p

I found Smith for 7.00 'Buy it Now' and used PayPal so he should be here any day now but I'm looking for Neo to hook up with. Price doesn't matter since my dad said he'd pay for the shipping of both of them, just as long as I could pay for the actual figures :)

By the time the Fall toyshow comes, I'll have some spare cash and will look for the Lobby figures for a deal. Only for a deal though. I'll have to be paying for XBOX Live around that time too so I might not get them.

And one last thing: I think McFarlane should make Seinfeld action figures. I'd get 'em! :D

Yeah, they changed too much from the Comic. Had to have been due to copyright issues because some guy from another comic kills Al Simmons, not Jessica Priest. She is in the comics and does work for Jason (forgot his last name) and does fight Spawn, but she came much later in the story.

I heard a rumor they were making a Spawn 2 some time ago. If that was true, all I have to say is Angela or Tiffany has to be in it. They're the angels that battle Hellspawns and both have had their share of awesome encounters with Al Simmons.

I do Warhammer fantasy. You build sets of guys for your army and built them and paint them, and then you can battle your friends armies. Here (http://us.games-workshop.com/) is a link to the Games Workshop (the company that makes Warhammer, 40K, and some other similar games) home page. If you have the time to paint the guys (and the money to buy them, its getting pretty expensive) I would highly recommend it if it interests you. It is a ton of fun. When I first started, my guys looked like poo too but i've been playing for 6 years now so my guys are turning out real well.

I heard rumors they'd be doing figures and got mixed feelings. Detail is not their thing but hey, toys are toys in my eyes. But not when they're ships of both the '70s show and the new one. I wanted the Sci Fi series to have figures as detailed as that of Sideshow, McFarlane, or Art Asylum or something.... Perhaps a few more seasons wait they'll do it?

I chiefly collect items that represent ways of life or people who symbolize them. I have a 12 inch figure of Vader, as he symbolizes the devotion to his own kind of order. I wish he would have tried to overthrow the Emperor himself, because as he demonstrated with the bounty hunters, he is capable of greater leaps of logic than his master.

Other than that I enjoy collecting masks, or rather apparel worn by those who strive for their own goals, such as Jason Voorhees mask. His machette is not one of my possessions, for it is not the real one. If it were possible to aquire an authentic, metallic recreation of one, I would almost certainly own it.

I would love to catch up on my Star Wars collection whenever I get a good paying job, there are so many cool action figures I would have killed to have had when I was a kid!

Daring Dueler is doing well too, if anyone is wondering.
