    Should I start a separate thread for a sale list?

    I am going to be putting some stuff on ebay. I've been saying that for years now, but I have some motivation now. I want a new mountain bike and I've a lot of SW stuff I just don't need or want anymore.

    There will be a lot more than this, but I just thought I would put up this list I made up a long time ago, while I was on the computer.

    The grading is pretty strict. I'm not a picky collector, I would probably normally give all of these a higher grade, but I want to be as technical as possible, so I won't get any negative feedback when I put them on ebay. With the exception of the C6s, they all look great hanging on your wall or on a shelf, but they're not perfect or case fresh when you look at them closely.

    Some of us are toy stoopid and have no idea what the numbers mean...

    Maybe you could post a rough description of the grading system...

    c-10 would be the best, obviously, but nothing is that good--they don't even come out of the case without blemishes anymore...
    c-9 or 9+ "Case Fresh" Since noone would dare call theirs perfect, this is as good as it gets. Minty fresh. No noticeable blemishes, scratches, bends or creases--clear bubble/blister, clean seal, etc.
    c-8 one or two problems--I think a piece should be marked down a grade per big blemish. I'm not too picky, so a lot of my collection falls in this category, between 8 and 9. It may have a few scratches on the bubble or card, or slightly dog-eared corners on the card, or the card may be a little bent or wavy. If they are minor details, like the scuffing on the card corners or on the blister that you get, even straight out of the box, than I might not grade it down until there are two more minor problem areas.
    c-7 one more significant blemish, or two or more lesser ones. Dog-eared corners and a scratched blister, for instance...
    c-6 "Opener" Most collectors wouldn't hang a c-6 on their wall. It is great for finding a figure you want loose, minty-fresh from the package.
    AFA grading is of course going to be a lot stricter. And this is just one man's amateur assessment of what he's learned in 8 years of collecting but not being to picky about it.
    Any feedback, Henry, or any other serious collectors?

    Just an example of the subjectiveness of the system:
    I think my C2 Jorg Sacul was a c-7 from Brian's Toys. I wouldn't grade it so low. It would be a c-8 or 9 for my purposes, and I might grade it c-7/8 if I were to sell it, just to be on the safe side.

    Sounds like you got the grading down about right. But everryones idea is differant. Thats why AFA was born they go by more finite rules than the everyday Joe.

    So, I'm kinda on a toy-buying moratorium...

    So when I found multiples of most of wave 5 at Walmart this morning...

    I almost cried.:_|

    I called my boss and she let me get a few:
    Darth Malak
    Darth Revan
    Tattoo Ani
    Yoda/Kybuck
    Roron Korobb
    Organic Grievous

    She let me have two of them and the rest are going under the bed for Christmas or whatever...

    There were still a lot I wanted, like Hermi Odle, Threepio and Salacious, Luke with bone (that came out wrong), and that drummer from the band is a really nice sculpt and paint job.

    One thing that was missing was Starkiller Hero. I don't know if this was a slightly different case pack, or if someone else had already picked them all off.

    I still want another Darth Revan to keep carded, since it is a Fan-Choice figure.

    I saw the concept Vader and a GH Gold McQ Stormy at Target, but I'd already overspent.

    I guess what I saw at Target was Wave 4 revision 2...

    Cartoon Boba was there, but I am not impressed. It is a rather boring repaint. If there had been a new cartoon-inspired sculpt, I would be all over it!

    I went into Walmart today for some batteries and passed through the toy section and almost fainted! There was probably 10 figures I would have bought if I wasnt able to control myself. There was a ton of concept figures; Boba, Vader, Starkiller, Snowtrooper, Stormtrooper, pre droid Grevious. There was also a bunch of new clones, a grey clone commander, red,blue,yellow Clone Captains, fan choice Dark Troopers, fan choice Sandtroopers, fan choice Scout Troopers, droids, droids and more droids!

    I'm not sure what series they all are, but it was a nice collection!

    Woo! What a great time to be a figure collector! Unless you're my checking account, that is...[face_blush]

    So...which Wal Mart was that?

    Cool that you found some stuff that you were looking for otisdodge

    And I know what you mean about the checking account Jaira

    I don't hunt anymore since I just started buying the waves... I'm only going to do that with this coin run
    and it's just becasue I want all the coins... Guess I shouldn't say only going to do that with...cause they'll
    come up with some other gimic that makes me want them all...but, since my collection wasn't very big at all...getting
    figures and stuff makes some sense.

    At least they've got soemthing new out...

    Well, I'm as happy as a drunken clam. I just had to make a last minute run to my neigborhood Walmart to pick up a prescription before getting ready for work, decided, "what the heck," and wandered over to the toy aisle; you know, just incase. Luck was with me tonight. I finally found a McQuarrie Concepts Darth Vader! Only one, of course, but that's one more than I had. Also picked up a CZ-4 figure. If anybody is interested, they had a Darth Vader Tie Fighter. Only one, so hurry. That's at the Jacksonvile Walmart.

    I want to get those Battlefront II sets but it's a Previews exclusive.
    How do you order from Previews? I didn't see them on their site.
    Do I actually have to go into a comic shop and order it from the catalog?

    Surely you can order them online somewhere. And if not, whats so bad about going to the comic shop to do it?

    I'd try Entertainment Earth....

    I don't know what the Battlefront 2 sets are...

    But, I know I just ordered my kid the Mandolorian packs for christmas...

    Don't remember if I saw the ones you're looking for but, I'd try there.

    Where do you do your comics shopping?

    The only comic shop I'm familiar with here is actually just called the Comic Book Shop just off of Rodney Parham.
    Entertainment Earth always runs me off with their prices.
    But I don't know how much the sets cost through Previews.

    The Battlefront 2 sets are two hasbro battlepacks based on the game. One with clones, the other with battle droids. Mostly just repaints, but there are some new weapons that were in the game (rocket lauchers, shot guns and such).

    Ok. Don't take this personal, but you just summed up why I never got into the EU.....Shotguns? In Star Wars? "Hey, you kids! Get off of my Death Star!"

    The battle front II figures are at EE. For both sets it is $74.99 and shipps in November. Plus probably $10 shipping. Theres 13 figures total so it would end up about $6.50 apiece. So not a bad price.
