Are you sure?
Some say $3000 (for a MOC) but that is actually stated as $3000 pesos?
MUCH cheaper but doesn't seem right............. really?  Rolling Eyes

I belong to a couple groups on facebook, but I never really check them. I'm a forums guy when it comes to Star Wars. I did remove myself from a group called "Action Figure Junkies" It was all types of action figures. Like I mean EVERYTHING.

Guys would post pics of yard sale finds, or what have you. These things would be beat to bloody hell. Missing body parts, no paint, ect. These guys would be all excited! Look at my killer score, they only cost me a dollar! Well, yeah. They are shit.

If anyone asked a question about a figure, like Is this worth anything? They would all assume you were a scalper.
I saw some guy get completely trashed for that. And he just worded the question wrong. What he meant was was it worth getting..... He was looking for other opinions on what others thought about it and practically got dragged through the mud and accused of looking for info to scalp the figure!

Constant drama, too. This guy is a scammer, this guy never pays, so and so is a scalper. Blah Blah Blah. There was a guy looking for some of the modern build a droid parts from the 2008-2010 figures. I offered the guy what I had for a price, to which he told me was too much. So we worked a deal, and then he tells me it would be like a month before he could pay. And we were only talking a few bucks! Then he backs out all together.

I've got no use for ass holes who waste my time. I'll offer things up to TIG, RS or ebay before I'd ever offer anything for sale in one of those groups.

There are some real winners in that group. At least the forums still survive.

The little time I have spent on supposedly "invite only" groups has been a big disappointment. Many members feel entitled to have everything the want (whether real or reproduction) and don't seem to care if it is damaging to the hobby. One guy was furious because I suggested unmarked reproduction store displays we're not a good thing. He argued that because he couldn't afford the real thing, he had the right to have an identical reproduction. I think I'll stick to the forms, where people value saving and hunting for legit items verses buying cheap knock off items. Smile

Shame on me I just joined FB :opps: ...on a secret basis (no personal pics or datas) but still.
Actually makes contact easier for trade. Time will tell, if was a mistake or not. :I am stupid:
