I wish I could say there were lots of great auctions. There weren’t even interesting auctions to talk about. Below are the handful of auctions that I thought were good and/or interesting.
If I’ve missed any, then please let me know in the Comments. But know that I don’t want to comment on the same senseless auctions each week. That omits many of the most obviously egregious. But seriously, did I miss anything?
– I was going to praise it, but the shipping is just too high.
– Can someone explain this price for a dirty lot?
– I’ll always have love for $0.99.
– This doesn’t feel like a good lot, but it is better than most.
– 50 Flesh starting at $15.
– I can’t see paying a premium for a Class A when he is a better example of this.
– This Tortle made me feels sad.
– It is a shame the starting price is so high; some nice bootlegs here.
– The clamps I need for repairs. Anyone want the figures?
– Is this really from Doom Toys? I don’t remember that.
– Yikes. If Doom did this one, then…yikes.
Watching this with my kids really hit me. It filled me with far more feelings than I was expecting.
My OT experience was built on VHS. My parents took me to Empire and I stood for the entire movie, but I don’t really remember it. Star Wars was a big part of my life – because it just was.
However, I can clearly remember seeing the prequel trailer for the first time. It filled me with hope and excitement. I had rediscovered SW through books, video games, and being a “collector” instead of just playing with toys. It felt more personal than ever.
Now I watch it with my boys. We watched it on Laserdisc so they could see the original versions. They only commented on not seeing the Wampa as much; which they liked better. It is amazing to me watching the movies through their eyes.
I’m no longer Luke looking off to the future. They are.
I am sure people will suggest Han has found “god.” Hell, maybe that was the goal. Maybe the movie will negatively change my positive perspective on the scene. It won’t matter.
It will be about that moment with my boys. It was real.
