Done.  Remember to include either Chronopia or Warzone in the subject heading of any e-mails you send to Thad.  That way he'll know they aren't spam and delete them without looking first.  I apologize if he's slow.  While he's an owner of Valhalla's Gate, he also has a full-time 'real'  gov't job.  He doesn't check his VG e-mail everyday and he can't legally do so at his other job.  Not an excuse, but more of a reason behind the process.

TK & Rad...let me know which way ya'll jump on this and I'll update the list.

Has anyone completed a deal with Thad?  If so, could you let me know so I can update the list?  Thanks!

no, he hasnt even replied back to my original email.  i went and placed an order with spirit games instead (note: this was before my window was broke, veez :P), and depending on what they have in stock (i should be getting an email from them soon) i would change my order with valhallas gate. that is, if thad ever actually writes back, which i kinda am not even expectin much anyway...

That's disappointing.  Anyone else?  I don't exactly know when I'll be in Columbia again, but I can certainly e-mail him and try to get the figs myself.  I apologize to everyone that this hasn't come out like it should.  I think I overestimated his want to offload his minis.   >:(

Looks like this guy doesn't want to mess with the packing and shipping small orders so I will make his life easier. I will offer the guy $80 for the shooting match and he can ship it to me by cheapest mail possible - probably about 7-10 days. Then I can get paid by you all and ship it on. With luck this can all be done in about 10 days. If he won't do that much then Petru could go to the store and pay him the eighty and ship it to me? I will dig up as many of the Capitol Inf up to the max (if I have that many) you are looking for to cover shipping.

Still interested in the figs but with everyone dropping out I am not going to pay his prices. I will go $1 a fig and $3 each for the larger figs (hammerheads and Mounted Hussars) - he snoozed he losed. If he's not interested then let the figs sit...just remind him that doing that he gets nothing.

I concur, TK.  I don't think he'll go for that, but I can only ask. 

What's lousy to me is that I offered him a way to offload dead lead in a very convenient manner (IMHO) to a group that will actually use the minis, but instead he decided not to play ball (or if he did, very selectively).

Again everybody, I apologize.  It will be a little while before I'm back in Columbia and at Valhalla's Gate, but I'll make sure to let everyone know when I'm there so they can fulfill missed orders.  You never know, I may just go ahead and buy everything he has and become a mini-TK!

Dude -

Totally not your fault. If you want to buy the lot go for it. Just realize that at his prices you won't make too much of a profit. I also warn that you may end up with figs sitting around your house for awhile. Let the guy stew a bit and then hit him with either my offer or your own.

Will he be at your local con?

I might be interested in some the of B-hood figures that left. I'm just trying to figure out the current status of the trade/sale. Should I contact Thad, or wait and see what's happening with the mass order? I would be interested in Blessed Vestal Laura (both versions) and the Bhood Sgt that's left.

No.  Valhalla's Gate (or Thad) doesn't travel to Recruits (even though it's less than 2 hrs away), otherwise I'd tell him to bring them.  I understand that I won't make money on this.  To me, especially in a situation like this, promotion of product to people that appreciate it is more important than making a quick buck.  Thus, when I put out the Lanard sale info, I don't pad the costs:  What I paid is what you pay, plus actual shipping.  I think Veez can attest that dealing with me isn't always about the money.  If I were to buy all his stuff, I'd honor the prices I quoted.

Doompup - The issue is that people have tried to contact Thad, but there has been limited or no response on his part.

Petrus,

Thad's lack of respnsiveness in no way refelcts upon you.   So, we can all just move along.  Thanks for bringing some hard to find figures to the attention of the forum.   I would have been nice to let some folks fill in their armies. 

Doompup.  Anything that was marked as being under offer by me is fair game.   I am no unemployed, so new toys will have to wait. 

Hope everyone ends up having a great week!
