LOL! Dude, I *LOVE* that movie!

And, I'm collecting the toy line. I'm just not sure about dropping that kinda cash on that...don't know if it's overpriced or not.

Peace,

Chip

What? They don't have Old B.O.B?

That's impressive. I'm not sure I knew they made S.T.A.R.

Old B.O.B, S.T.A.R., and The Humanoid were released only in Italy and Canada. Same with the magnetic figures and the walking VinC.E.N.T.

Peace,

Chip

When I worked for Disney (working at one of the Glendale buildings) one of the maintenance guys I knew saw all the toys in my office and said to me "You know they have a bunch of that stuff next door, right?" I had no idea what he meant. I then found out that the building next door to me was one of the wardrobe houses. This guy also worked for them so he took me in there. Hanging on the racks... all the TRON costumes... and then in the back, high on a shelf... Old B.O.B... just sitting there. The full sized prop.

So cool.

Wow. I would've asked if I could put him in my car. :)

Peace,

Oh man, Old BOB just sitting there?

Chip, I think this is a little high, I used to have a STAR in similiar shape but was forced to flip him to obtain a tougher piece. I think I got 3 bills for it.

I was thinking that S.T.A.R. and Old B.O.B. were similar in terms of rarity, so I was also thinking $300 max for one.

"We're the best."

I LOVE that movie! :D

Peace,

Chip

Awesome, thanks!

You can send that little acrylic case full of three figures over to me anytime. ;)

Love the CB McHaul stuff, too! And boxed Buck Rogers!!!

You really need to take pics of everything so I can drool. :)

Peace,

Chip

Always a trip for me down memory lane with you guys! :wink: Dan - you really should have ran out with B.O.B!!

Chip - if you can afford it - IMHO you should get it. Who knows when you'll see another one?

& sham on you hutchprime for saying this movie sucks!! Its a classic Disney pic!! I'm a bit partial to Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea myself. When I had my office, a model of the Disney Nautilus sat on my desk.

Good point, but I don't want to overpay, either.

I'm sure I'll see another one. I used to see lots of them years ago.

It's like that sealed Atari 2600. Yeah, I'd spend $2k on one, but there's just sooooo much cool stuff you could get for $2k.

A near-complete set of white-carded Mego Pocket Heroes, for instance. ;)

Peace,

Chip

True. I suppose the question is: How bad do you want it?

Chip,

There is a rather large toy store within 45 minutes of my house. This store is so full of toys that you cannot see any wall space and it is not possible for me to go around the entire store in my wheelchair.

If you want, I can keep a look out for Blackhole toys because the last time I was there he had some stuff.

It's up to you, and before you ask, no he does not have a website. I don't know why though. I have recommended that the store be represented online it for years. The owners excuse is that he enjoys doing business with people in person. While I can understand and appreciate that sentiment, it's not always possible to do all business in person.
