That reminds me, about the Falcon....

Should I have an acrylic case made that fits just the box? Or, should the case be able to fit the box, with the toy assembled in front of it? I'm thinking it would be much more enjoyable if I am able to see the toy....

Also, can someone move my thread to the appropriate area, titled "JediTray's Toy Quest", and send me the link?

Pwetty Pwease? Smile

Your thread is now moved to the limelight section Tray.

That is a really nice Micro Falcon you have there. Both of those options are good as far as display goes. If you have the room then both box and toy would be good, but if not then just he box would look great in acrylic too.

Yeah, agreed. I went ahead and ordered one that will accommodate both the toy and the box.

And thanks for moving my thread for me. It got littered with pictures and I didn't want to have to start over! Smile

Marion Ravenwood and Luke in Battle Poncho arrived today.

All that remains is the Droid Factory R2-D2 and the correct staff for Barada! Smile

I've never seen a collection of this size come together so quickly. I think you're doing what I would do if I just won the lottery. Keep up this pace and you'll have a museum next month.

If I won the lottery, I'd be moved into a house by now! Smile Things are slowing down now, and I'm enjoying my collection again.

Yeah, I was lucky with the Bespin Leias. I'm just so glad that the Micro Falcon is protected.

Received the Droid Factory R2 just now. It is TERRIBLE and does NOT look like the one pictured in the eBay auction. I am SO disappointed and mad as hell, after the amount of money I paid.

Pictures are useless. Even with the flash off, it doesn't show how yellow the figure is. So, that tells me that the eBay seller took advantage of this fact and of course sold something that is not up to par. Looks like I might be trying to use the eBay buyer protection shit.

No response to my message yet.

Also, the other eBay seller that sent the wrong staff with Barada, yet the correct one was in the auction pics, has not replied and already has "forgot" twice to send the right staff.

**Sigh**

Ah thats a pain in the arse m8, probs better getting those kind of items off the forums.

I hate those obscure pix on ebay, even though most people are useless with cameras theres no excuse for not taking a better photo that represents what your selling

The seller has replied and is offering a full refund if I ship it back. Pain in the ass indeed.

Well, I've posted my plea for a DF R2. I sure hope somebody out there can help!

Oh yeah, I "cheated" on the Marion picture. The nose is missing a spot of paint, but I brought the image into Fireworks and got rid of it. I have contacted the seller to ask for a partial refund because the pics do not show the missing paint. Of course, I have yet to hear back. Another seller that has what appears to be a Marion in good shape has not responded to my questions about her paint.

Sometimes this hobby, and the bastards on eBay particularly, really pisses me off.
