I joined just to get a good laugh : )
Actually, I do enjoy looking at Ozio's and Joseph's group page. I like learning about the items featured there. Even Ross's page is good.
But, after being called a "liar" or that my pieces are "fakes", I am starting to think FB is not for me. Seems I have to provide proof they were graded before people take them serious. I get that, they don't know me. But with a group that size on the "vintage" forum, you certainly get idiots. I try to be kind in my responses : )
Again, it can be fun for a good laugh most of the time....

I think it shows one thing I've suspected for some time. Hopefully I type this so it makes sense.

Groups like on FB attract Star Wars collectors of all types. Guys and gals who collect and enjoy their hobby be it vintage or otherwise. But their knowledge isn't as strong and they're unwilling to learn certain aspects of the hobby like our people here on TIG or RS or SWFUCK or whatever forum you name. Trying to explain something as simple as the difference between a repro and a bootleg or the YPS thing mentioned above is a long drawn out painful process that falls on deaf ears. I think the short version of my long winded rant here is that I think people who really want to be serious collectors of vintage will seek out a forum like TIG for answers and to chat with like minded folks.

Now while I have your attention. I have some Power Of The Jedi figures still mint on their cards. Anyone want to give me 1500 bucks for them?? They're vintage right??? Wink

Facebook is starting to really kill me, the majority there couldn't care less about our hobby. I rarely post there these days except on the 20/21 back group. Joe's bootleg group is cool too. He runs a tight ship.

Published a selfie of himself naked with a bunch of POTF2 figures in his garage. It got quite ugly till the mods over there closed the thread and banned him.

Why are so many people interested in my nude selfies?  lol! 

Yes, I did get my first ban!!

In a nutshell, here it is:

In August Rick Alsop was selling a 12bk Chewbacca. He needed to move it quick (vet bills) and I knew someone who wanted one.

My buddy wanted to offer a trade and cash. Rick didn't want to do it. Since the trade item was foreign I told my friend I'd buy it for the exact value in the trade. So Rick wanted $400 for the Chewbacca. My guy offered $250 and the other MOC. I paid the $150 so Rick got his $400. Simple

Chewbacca arrives and the bubble is lifted on the top. I contact Rick. Rick tells me it's my problem now and he wont' look at pictures or get involved. I actually sent a $40 refund to the buyer under some bull story about it not being my money (so he'd take it).

I let it go until Rick showed a photo of it yesterday talking about how he wished he didn't sell it. I cordially reminded him about leaving me to clean up his mess.

I steer clear of FB for the most part (99.96% of the time), but I have to ask, what groups are worth looking at?


And if you get a random FR from Jay Williams.... well, that would be me. I'm gonna give it a little whirl... well, at least see what the heck is going on there... oh and to defend my LB crap when its mentioned.  Twisted Evil 

Anyway.......................

cheers!
Very Happy

I've unfollowed the vast majority of fb groups once I realised that no matter how many times I punched the idiots' profile pics with my mouse pointer it didn't actually hurt them.

Good ones:

Joe Y bootleg
Echo base
SW 12-21 bk
Lili Ledy
International collectors

and I think that's it but I may have missed a couple.
