  1. I have a 9.8 SS of it with Stan, Claremont, and Wein. I wish it also had a Trimpe sig. For me it’s more about an individual’s appeal or influence on the character than just their work on a specific book. For example, Stan was the face of Marvel and a pop culture icon. Without his work who knows if Marvel would have even existed long enough for Wolverine to be created? He may not be the father of many popular characters, but he’s certainly the grandfather. I think it’s cool to have his sig on a book that means something to me. That’s probably why his sig is so popular, because people want that progenitor connection related to a piece they care about. It may be why people get actor sigs on comics they had nothing to do with. For them the person embodies the character and gives the book a deeper meaning. It’s not my kind of thing, but I understand the appeal.
  2. I never knew I wanted Logan in a cowboy hat, but here we are. There is also a Weapon X figure that looks pretty cool.
  3. Swami Oodles is the perfect name, never change. Shine on, you crazy diamond.
  4. I just did it Sunday. A slabbed 9.8 I would have bid up to around $100 for. It sold for $11
  5. I have an X-Men 12 that I sheared the cover off of while placing it into a razor-sharp mylar. Still looks good in the bag, as long as I don't look too closely.
  6. Received a PM that clues me in. Thanks for looking.
  7. Lots of replies, very little information. I'm starting to think that "Stu" doesn't actually exist, and is more like a mythical chupacabra who is blamed when unexplained, bad things happen.
  8. I often see the name referenced in threads but don't know the backstory. Can anyone provide a concise explanation of who it is, or more to the point, what happened? Not looking to wade through 20 pages of a decade-old thread, just enough to understand the reference. Feel free to PM if the topic is verboten.
  9. I'm conflicted on whether I think the book is cool or not, but I do like the seller's description: "The book was cut into a "V" shape by the manufacturer and is perfectly imperfect."
  10. Those are just speed holes to reduce wind resistance and make the comic go faster. List it as the super sport variant for 3x your cost.
  11. I watched a video on the Revoltech Wolverine and it looks cool, but there is a big price range difference. There are sub-$25 versions on eBay that look like Chinese knockoffs, up to around $90 on Amazon. I'm curious which version yours is and where you got it from. Anybody have experience with the knockoffs for a fraction of the authentic model prices?
  12. Oh man, a preview for an upcoming "It's Friday!" thread. It's only Monday and I'm already excited.
  13. I’m digging the PVC statues that have good detail for a reasonable price. The brown suit Wolverine is a recent release that I preordered for myself and my wife decided to wrap up as a Christmas present.
