Anyone find the little surprise with the RAM?

Just thought I would bump this one time to try again.  I had an offer, but it was higher than I wanted to go.

Items Wanted / Looking for a Crimson Attack Tank II.
« on: July 03, 2008, 09:17:45 PM »
Hey guys.

I'm looking for a Crimson Attack Tank II.  This is the one that is mostly red from a few years ago.  It can be MISB or loose, but it has to be complete and in great condition.  Just message me if you have one.  Also please not I am not looking to spend a lot so only reasonable prices.

I have one that I wish someone would have asked at the con.

"Will the star cases that the DOC figure came in, be available for purchase like the Star Wars cases?"

This has already been answered recently.  We should see these cases introduced at SDCC later this month.

Sweet, now we just need to get them made available to us Canucks.

My thoughts exactly AK!

The cost of gas of running around would likely be more now than that of postage.  I am frustrated as well by making the run toa store and finding nothing.  I have bought the last 2 waves on line.  Hopefully I'll find the Wave 4 Comic Packs at the store (not that we don't have excellent members who we can purchase items from at reasonable rates!).

That's because you are too slow!!! HA!! 

KIDDING!!!

I'm in the same boat.  I use to make a monthly, or twice monthly run down to Buffalo/Niagara (from Toronto).  Now I don't bother.  I might go once every two months, and I don't "hunt" locally anymore.  I may stop off while out, but I won't make a specific run anymore for toys.

Online, especially with guys like Hal, make it easy to get the US stuff for what it would cost me going myself.

There are people called "benders" who go around bending cards so scalpers cant get them but then there is also scalpers who, if they can't get all the figures on a peg, will bend the cards so other scalpers or collectors cant get them. I think both practices are sad and pathetic.

The only reason I think it was intetional was because every other place I've gone thats had wave 7/8 figures, the cards were in good shape and it was only the one wal mart that had the bad cards.

I really think it might just be the way they came.   I can't say for sure in your case, but the ones I saw were not on a peg on a shelf, but on these plastic "hanging" type strips.  They basically sat right on top of each other and had to bend a bit to fit on the little hook. 

I think the intentional bending by scalpers, or whoever, is more of an urband legend than a reality.  I would be more prone to believe in people hiding figures rather than bending cards.  Mostly because I have seen posts on other websites by people who do that with rare items and then get off on making people PM them to get the location.

Hal is awesome to deal with.  Without a doubt the best resource for US stuff in the Toronto area.

I found a couple cases worth of wave 8 at Walmart (Eglinton & Pharmacy) a couple days ago. 

The cards were about 80/20% in regards to the condition of the cards.  80% were in fine condition and 20% had creases or bends.  It could be just some bad packing by the factory, or carelessness by the staff.

Weird, it isn't allowing me to send a PM. 

So I'll ask here.  What are you asking for the CAT II and Crimson Sabotage set?
