  1. Awesome review as always! I didn't buy this statue because I already had the Sideshow PF Aquaman from a few years back, and am not a big enough Aquaman fan to want more than one statue of him. Having said that, your review has made me seriously re-think this. I agree with you and really enjoyed the movie, and think Jason Mamoa was a great choice/spin on the character. Will have to think about ordering this guy now that I've gotten a better look at it. You asked for advice on your display... I can't pinpoint it but something doesn't seem quite right about the four statues side by side. Each statue is awesome on it's own but something doesn't feel right about how they look together. My wife (the Feng Shui expert in the family) suggests to try switching Aquaman and Green Arrow, this way Aquaman's trident and Green Arrows bow will both be pointing outward rather than inward. I don't know, might be worth a try. Pretty awesome collection!
  2. Ordered this guy back in Jan 2018. Finally arrived tonight... 25 months later. Well worth the wait in my opinion! The Motherbox seems to also be 1/3 scale per the movie but feels more like a nice actual size. Alternate angry head. I don’t like my Supes statues looking angry so usually display all with normal faces. Displayed with the 1/4 scale New 52 Darkseid which actually looks pretty good with this 1/3 scale statue. Do wish they would make a 1/3 Darkseid to go with the 1/3 Doomsday though!
  3. Generally speaking, I would prefer an unpunched card but would not pay a premium for it. I wouldn't purposely look for unpunched cards but if I was lucky enough to run across a figure that I liked on an unpunched card I'd grab it even if it ended up meaning I had a double of the fig. Kinda cool to think it never made it to the pegs!
  4. Just collect what you enjoy. Your origin story now also includes posting your question here, and getting some pretty positive support... that's a pretty cool part of your origin story. Or, perhaps your origin story is a whole franchise/extended universe, and you've only seen the first part so far.
  5. As someone with one of these sets registered, I concur with this request. As Brandon said, it better reflects the chapters of this storyline! Thank you!
  6. ... Giggity Giggity. (You forgot two Giggity's)
  7. I used the Help Center and had them call me back. They returned my call in about 30 seconds and it was definitely a native English speaker!
  8. I think I’ll be avoiding that seller altogether! Thanks for the extra research!
  9. Thanks for the replies. Kind of what I thought too! This is the first time I’ve personally encountered something like this on eBay. Will have to keep an eye out from now on. Gives me another reason to prefer the BIN option! Take care!
  10. I can't find a better place for this. I wanted to see what people thought of this. Please look at bid retractions and bid history on the image. I had placed a max bid of $51.00 on an auction, bidder after me (1429 feedback guy) outbids me with $77.00. Discovers my max bid, retracts his, then immediately rebids precisely below my max bid driving my bid up to my max. Anyone ever seen shady business like this? I've since retracted my bid and contacted the seller. I also reported this to eBay. I didn't want the book that bad but probably would have went a bit higher if I thought the bidding was fair. The 1429 feedback guy has retracted 664 bids in the last six months and 8% of his bids have been with this seller. Not implying anything but that seems a bit off.
  11. Awesome! Will post my question there. Couldn’t find this when looking for where best to post this! Very much appreciated!!
  12. Hello, just click on the number of bids and then click on that bidder... their feedback has since went from 1429 to 1431. Sure seems like a lot of retractions to me.
  13. You can go to their bid history. I will try to do a snip... might have to wait until I get home cause I am not so good with the eBay app on my phone.
  14. It said it's okay to post anything and I can't find a better place for this. I wanted to see what people thought of this. Please look at bid retractions and bid history on the image (both images the same... couldn't get the second one to remove!). I had placed a max bid of $51.00 on an auction, bidder after me (1429 feedback guy) outbids me with $77.00. Discovers my max bid, retracts his, then immediately rebids precisely below my max bid driving my bid up to my max. Anyone ever seen shady business like this? I've since retracted my bid and contacted the seller. I also reported this to eBay. I didn't want the book that bad but probably would have went a bit higher if I thought the bidding was fair.

  15. I agree with you here, and this is a real bummer. But then again, if everyone sought after 9.4 moderns then they'd cost a fortune too!
