You simply must watch this guy!

Post by the89thchris on Tue Jun 06, 2017 12:43 pm

This is a video, but it's really vintage toy discussion.

This guy is a wild man. There are a few minutes in here of him ranting about vintage Kenner that are beyond priceless.

I don't know if he's acting, maybe it's for real lol but it's a long video so go directly to 5:28 if you want to cut right to the lols. It picks up again when he opens a carded DSG from eBay and cries at its sight lol this guy is a hero  lol!   rockon

Did he seriously compare Chewbacca to a Yak Face for prices? LOL

$2000 for a loose Vader with a standard single telescoping saber? Loose cloth Jawas at $100?

He cries over his MINT Gunner, with a yellow bubble and crushing on the top corner, lol. He thinks he could relist it with a starting price of $1000 and it would sell, which is even funnier. I couldn't get a good look, but was that AFA 80 or 50?

He certainly didn't hold back on his inner feelings for Carrie Fisher....

Crazy guy, who should know his stuff better before collecting it. He's going to seriously overpay for something eventually if he doesn't learn something.

Add 2 grand if your Vader has his sword thing! What great laughs. I usually get annoyed by people rattling on about stuff they have no knowledge about, but this guy is hilarious. Hard-fuckin'-core, man!

Lol yeah he is but at the same time, it shows you that there are people out there with crazy loose collections and don't really know much about it.

Although I think some of the parts I quoted above are almost funny enough for a Vintage Rebelion intro sampling lol too far? rofl

I'm new to the Forum, so firstly hello.

I've been watching this Guy for ages... I love his passion for the old stuff. He's out on his own, collecting his way. His video's are so funny with some really emotional bits. So funny that this was the first link I stumbled upon. He's quite sensitive so don't give him a hard time. He's old school Star Wars through and through. Great post! Great forum. clapping clapping clapping

You're absolutely right Bobby. I just found his enthusiasm hilarious.

Not only that, but I'm really new to collecting vintage Kenner myself, and I was saying perhapse equally ignorant stuff (in terms of valuations and reproductions) hardly a year ago. I'm lucky that I asked certain questions on this forum as opposed to other places online or I would have been lit up lol

If anyone here is genuinely annoyed by what he's saying it's just because he put videos out there without researching facts that are plainly available online.

He just has some remarkable quotes in there rofl

First of all, welcome to the site Bobby!

I'm not annoyed with this guy, I just shake my head. He's getting into collecting carded figures, and it's clear he doesn't know what he's doing. I shake my head because he's going to end up getting ripped off huge. The repro Jawa does annoy me though - we need to eliminate repros, and he's showing it off like it's one of the best things he has ever bought. Anyway, I did actually cringe when he tossed a POTF Jawa on the ground. In the Gunner video, he didn't know about grading. Now, he thinks missing a punch tab will significantly affect a grade. Sad The case on his POTF Jawa is from the early 2000's VOTC line, and that symbol he couldn't read was the Hasbro logo. Smile It's certainly not a 'rare' case, lol.

Of course, this is someone who is showing off his new Tiffany CD and an unopened pack of blank VHS tapes, which he thinks will be worth a ton of money in the future. rofl

I know this post makes me sound elitist. There's just so much misinformation in these, and I wish I could help him so he doesn't get screwed over.
