I am being serious, I got the ship off of ebay for like 30 dollars and its missing alot of stuff. Was gonna try to resell it on ebay, but no one even bidded on it. So I am stuck with it. So now im gonna try to find the parts to fix it back up into a better condition.

No clue. Brian has replacement parts and repro stuff only for vintage stuff to my knowledge. But the PotF2 line and TPM is getting up there in age. Perhaps he or Cloud City or other places will start to provide the same sevice they do vintage stuff. eBay is your best bet. *shrug*

I got that ship for Xmas. Pretty neat scene I got, but even cooler play ability.

What does "noobian" stand for ? :confused:

It doesn't stand for anything. People and things from the planet called Naboo are called Nubians or Noobians. No, they're not related to the people from Africa either.

I actually got this from Brain. Well maybe later down the road I will just get one off of ebay...a full one. And I might try to do something with the one that I have now, maybe do a custom ship or something.

It is worthy of a question of The Official EU Trivia Thread (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=141927)... :D
Objects coming from Naboo are (perhaps) called Noobian, but not Nubian ! This last word designates objects from Nubia... ;)

I just used Noobian, because the other way didnt look right. Plus thats what Qui-Gon told Watto in Episode 1.

Yeah, it's not EU. It was stated right in TPM....

Yeah... that's why I thought you were just dicking around. Referencing and what not. Sorry that I didn't get you really needed replacement parts. :(

Actually I do need replacement parts for the ship. Its about half empty. It has just one landing gear, thats how bad it is. Doesnt even have the red r2. And plus missing a panal on the top side of it. Thats why I came here to see if any of you knew any sites or something that sold replacement parts. I think I might post over at the TFN collecting boards. I would really like to get the parts then buying another ship for about 100 dollars.

And you payed $30 for this? Man, you got screwed!!! Sorry to say, but good luck selling that for near what you paid and finding a cheap, complete ship off eBay. That may be your best bet. It would be different if it were vintage but there are a ton of collectors now who probably haven't even opened that thing yet.

I wouldnt say I got screwed, I knew what I was getting and was planning to try to do some custom work with it. And ive already gave up selling it back. Ive paid a really close watch on ebay for cheap buys but a new in package will cost over 100 dollars and an opened one for 50 or higher.

What did Qui-Gonn tell to Watto ? "Noobian" or "Nubian" ?... :confused: (I prefer to be sure of the answer...)

Wow, I didn't know that ship was worth that much. That's nice to know. I know my Target Y-Wing goes for big bucks, as does the AT-AT (which I never got :(), and the AT-ST and Snowspeeder (either packaging) goes for 50-60. At least from Brian. Nice to know that.

Pfft, they were selling it at TRU 2 years ago for 50 in box.

You can get an At-St on ebay for about 15 dollars now. Ive got an AT-AT which I got from kay bee toys for around 100 dollars. Which still sells for about that price on ebay. Brian isnt cheep, ebay is the way to go if you wanna get some ships for good prices. Just keep an eye out for those new sellers that sells for low prices that they dont know how much they could really get. Ive got some good deals that way.

The only place I know to get toy parts is my local comic shop. Can't really help you. You could try hitting up some comic shops though. Maybe some antique stores, I've seen a lot of Star Wars stuff at some lately. Old ladies selling off toys they had (for their grandkids to play with) not realizing how much they're worth.

Man i think im only missing the fx x-wing for ships....well im missing the new slave 1 too...didnt care to get it.

The Ep2 Slave 1? That is actually a nice ship, looks more real then the old potf2 one. Well the potf2 ship was nice, you could store cargo and stuff in it when your playing with it, but the ep2 one is really cool to have setting out.

I got Red One's X-Wing so didn't bother with the F/X X-Wing. Same model, different colors and no sound, but hanging up makes it hard to play with sound anyways....

I never got Jango's Slave 1 or the Target Boba Slave 1 which was just Jango's repainted.

Oh, I also never got the Outrider and for the prices it goes for, I don't care to anytime soon.

I got the outrider from cloudcity for like 30 something, which was a good deal. Those Slave 1's are good looking ships.

Ugh, and don't remind me that I don't have the AT-AT. I still kinda want one. I played with my friend's as a kid, so I'd still have special memories about it if I had it.... I plan on settling on the WotC mini one. It's alot cheaper that way and to scale with the things it was made for making it that much more impressive I guess.
