New additions to my MR LE and SE collection!
« on: November 11, 2010, 02:40:24 PM »
Okay, this place seems a bit deserted...but I got some new MR stuff from eBay and decided to post up some pics!

First up is one of my favorites!

Thermal Detonator SE #25/750!








Luke Skywalker V2 SE lightsaber #325/750




Count Dooku LE lightsaber #171/3500





Mace Windu LE lightsaber #1398/1750




And last, the BIG DADDY, Boba Fett's blaster SE #976/1000




Sadly, the IDIOT who sent me all of this, was totally careless with the packaging. He just wrapped everything (except the sabers) in garbage bags and threw them in a box. The Mace Windu acrylic cover was broken. **I had an extra one from Brian's Toys that I slapped on there  ;)** Along with the TD base legs, Count Dooku's base, Mace Windu's base, and Boba Fett's tall stand part was snapped off. Happily, there is the wonder of SuperGlue! Everything looks all right now..except the Boba Fett stand. It's a bit beat up and the acrylic cover is just demolished.... :'(

Well, hope you guys enjoyed part of my collection!

Very nice Fetts, those are five awesome items there.  8)

Man, really sorry to hear about the poor packaging and the damage.  That just sucks.  I hope you left him a fitting feedback.

Btw, you can always file an insurance claim to get back the value of the damaged things.

Nice acquisitions, Fetts! All great items. Sorry to hear about the poor shipping. I'd look at doing as Obi-Wan suggests. That, or seeing if the seller will at least reimburse you the shipping charges.

Thanks guys!  :D I called him right when I got the items, and I know it wasn't ENTIRELY his fault. He went to the post office and complained, and they said they weren't liable. But it's all good, like I said, super glue fixed everything! The only thing that bums me is the acrylic cover for the blaster. I'm not too worried about it. The reason I didn't even leave feedback is because he cancelled the auctions and allowed me to buy them all at once outside of eBay, which was a stupid idea but I got a better deal that way! Besides, I'm sure someone could make me a new cover!

Yes, very nice collection... those MR acrylic covers are tricky to ship... the secret is rubber bands... I found a plastics guy in my home town that remakes the covers for me... you should check yours... you might find one there also... good luck!!!

Thanks BK! I have four more LE sabers that aren't shown, and I plan on keeping the collection growing!
