I've traded with Bill before and have always enjoyed his posts. He had an excitement about the hobby that makes one proud to be a toy collector. He will be missed.

Yes, thank you for the link. This just blows my mind and really hits home how limited our lives are.

Holy Crap- :shock: :( :( :( :(


I was away for one week-- and was getting ready to start being snarky about nothing happening here in some posts-- that is truly tragic and depressing news...

He will honestly be missed.

Thank you very much for sharing this sad news with us. I especially appreciate the link to the obit. Bill was a great guy, a great trader, and whether or not you agreed with him, always, always interesting. He will be missed.

I know it probably didn't happen, but I hope Matty got him that last Aquaman figure he ordered in time. I'll miss his enthusiasm for the character.

Hook hand Aquaman came 4 days too late :( That was a hard package for me to open in his honor.

It is falling on me to go through, organize and sell off his collection. :(

He was massively into SW, Marvel Legends/universe, Dc, street fighter, Gi joe, minimates, transformers, Motu (matty stuff), godzilla imports, heroclix and some lego and so on....mostly loose of course. $ will be going to his family

i will be getting a list together. If anyone here has any requests, anything they know that you need and he might have....hit me up, pm me? PLEASE
i know that Bill would want his AFi crew to have 1st shot. i know that i havent traded here....but this is for shellhead

still no more info on cause of death. :( it has been a tough week.

Man, I'm still trying to come to grips with this one. His passing definitely puts things in perspective and makes you realize how short life is.

This is horrible news. I didn't know him outside of his AFi moniker. I seem to remember the two of us having some give-and-take opinionated takes on Justice League Unlimited. I always saw his replies to me as somewhat tongue in cheek, tinged with a sense of pointed humor. I respected his opinions, and I will miss them.

Very sorry to read of this. We always seemed to be in the same threads and had many interactions through the years. Always respected his opinion and he was a fellow Cane.
