Daisy's up too if you're interested, but she doesn't have a crazy cool store preorder bonus like Scrooge does.

Nah he's sitting in my POL at BBTS. Got some other stuff coming this month that I'd rather ship at once.

Oh no, I meant in terms of BBTS. Anything over $300 or so from them usually needs an NRD.

Not a big fan. Few have really impressed me. There was the Super SFIV one that had Shinkiro vibes. Also, I just came across this on ebay that is based on the SSFII intro

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Street-Fig....c100005.m1851

I kinda like it.

I ordered two because who knows why. Its like $115 USD. I'd have it shipped to me then out to you free of charge unless you live in like CA, NY or another place where it costs an arm and a leg from Chicago.

I gave up preordering from AmiAmi unless the discount is huge or they have some bonus. Seems a lot of US online stores have it around the same price once you include SAL Registered shipping with AmiAmi. Doesn't make it worth preordering from them anymore.

What did it for me was their shipping costs. They started to get really pricey because of all the packing material they use. I switched to Hobbysearch and the shipping costs came waaay down. Their discounts aren't much less than Ami's either.

So I got my claim check for my flooded lower level of my house. I stored my comics down there. All of the comics were were less than 4 years old. Nothing really valueable. Two short boxes were damaged by water. I claimed 120 comics total with a cover price of 2.99 for a total of $360. They gave me $250 so I get a Hot Toy now!

I'm thinking either K2SO or old Luke.

I'd go for the droid, unless you really have to get each movie version of a character. I imagine the Last Jedi version will be the definitive Luke.

Yea, I might go back to HobbySearch for JPN preorders. Just gonna let my AmiAmi preorders continue to lapse. Don't even care if I get banned on their site anyway. BBTS with $4 shipping is fantastic and of course Amazon has been stocking more import figures and that's good as well.

But you're paying $800 for a LEGO set. I'm getting 2 PFs for not much more than that.

But the LEGO set looks good on display AND gives me 20 hours worth of hobby time with the assembly. A much better investment. And the last UCS Falcon ended up costing 10x more than retail on the aftermarket once production stopped, which is something that PFs don't even do.

I mean it completely sold out in two hours and that's with their servers shitting the bed.

AFOLs are nuts, man. Add the Star Wars collectors to that group and it is seriously probably the craziest group of collectors you'll see.

Well after the assholes that collect Hot Wheels. Never met a nice person who does that but whatever.
