Title: The extra Sacul.....
Post by: WedgeWannaBe on November 24, 2004, 12:03:12 PM
OK, hypotheitc question here:

If you had two Jorg Sacul figs (both same gray beard), would you keep both carded or open one?????

Reconsgt's carded or not carded question got me thinking on the subject and the Sacul figure is the perfect example for the situation.....

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER open a Sacul figure....what, are you crazy?   I would like a carded one and you want to "hypothetically" open one?  you kill me dude! ;D

So I take it that your answer is no???   ;)

I have one opened and one carded.

If I had two of them I would NEVER open one just to display it loose.  I would more than likely offer it up for a nice trade or something... let someone else enjoy this figure.   8)

RIP IT OPEN!

You have two right? Get loose with your figures Rob, and everything will be OK. :D

I tried to tell this to Y-WingJager also. :-\  Thin is in but LOOSE is where it's at. ;D

  ^^^^ Ha Ha Dan, I'd only open one if I was going to put his head on a more accurate Porkins body. ;) ;D

 So in other words Rob, keep him carded. :)

Such a mixture of opinions!!!  Maybe we should cut it open like the Thanksgiving turkey????  Or rip[ it open like a new Christmas gift????

Keep those opinions coming!!   ;)

That's one figure that I would keep carded. I must say that I nearly blew a gasket when I showed up to C-2 on Sunday morning, and they were sold out. I'm still sore over that one. If you do open it, to really make the figure accurate, put the head on Jabba's body. I love George, but that poor guy needs to think about his health and lose some serious weight.

Since you have two, the only reason i can think to leave it carded is if you are going to sell it, Sacul go's for $40+ on ebay and other sites. If i had two i would probably open one! I m real sorry i didn't get this figure now, especially since I seen him at Bi-Mart for $4.99! >:(

yeah, I mean no.....that's what I'm saying, NO OPEN!   now, how about your extra Sacul for my VOTC Yoda and then your dilema is solved! ;D   c'mon, hook a brutha up!

Absolutely not. I had to spend a good amount of hard earned Republican credits to get the one I got. If I had two, that just means I spent more.

No government pun intendid in this post.

Post by: WedgeWannaBe on November 25, 2004, 10:22:19 AM
Interesting on how the consensus is pretty much right down the middle.....even though it is leaning towards not openeing.  I truly expected a larger majority for keeping it carded.

Post by: Trooper Larry on November 25, 2004, 12:06:54 PM
Wedge, this was an awesome question, and I myself am a little surprised that there are more openers to. Now the real question is whether anyone would open a Toy Fair Vader if they had 1 extra?
Title: Re:The extra Sacul.....
Post by: Major fett on November 25, 2004, 03:06:19 PM
Why not? I'm not in this to make money, if i had an extra i would probably open it. Unless someone wanted it in a trade for something i needed.

that being said, would you trade that figure for the value of $10, which it sold for, or would you want more out of it?
Title: Re:The extra Sacul.....
Post by: Boba Binks on November 26, 2004, 02:25:31 PM
I do have my Toy Fair Vader open along with two carded samples that are signed by Dave Prowse.  ;D

As for the Sacul figure if you have an extra OPEN IT UP!!
Title: Re:The extra Sacul.....
Post by: WedgeWannaBe on November 26, 2004, 05:03:39 PM
OK, OK, I'd be willing to trade the Sacul for one of those autographed Toy Fair Vaders.....you don't have to twist my arm.   ;)

Yes, because if i had the ability to have bought one or two back then for that price i wouldn't know any better. It would only be worth 10 to me, now i'm willing to pay about 150 for it!

Post by: Nick@TheJawa on November 29, 2004, 11:10:42 PM
I opened one and kept the other carded.  It's not like I'm parting with it anytime soon, either.
Title: Re: The extra Sacul.....
Post by: Mike S on May 06, 2008, 03:40:56 PM
I would try and score a loose one on ebay

I've got an open white beard one and a sealed grey beard haha  :o

I have one of each sealed, which I'm thankful for.

Post by: sraw rats on May 06, 2008, 09:39:05 PM
Carded, definitely carded...although that's coming from a non-opener.  I bought 2 that weekend, but ended up selling one of them to a guy who went along with a couple of us who made it up there but didn't make it to the store in time.  I gave it to him for $20.  Was it really $10?  Wow, how I've forgotten how much cheaper things were back then.  now we pay twice as much for a similar exclusive that they actually produce more of. 

Now, I really wish I had a white beard one too.  I honestly don't know what the other one I had bought was since I sold it the day I bought it.  But I'm pretty sure it was gray.

Let me rephrase what I said: I would open my first imaginary one and my second imaginary one

He was a pilot right?,Jorg Sacul?
Title: Re: The extra Sacul.....
Post by: sraw rats on May 10, 2008, 09:10:00 PM
I guess I never really considered one of those hard to find/hard to acquire ones.  But it sure sounds like many of you are still looking for it or just haven't had a chance to get one.  Sorry, just an observation.

I just saw that Brian's Toys has them for $20 if anyone really really wants one

Thanks fox for letting me know, because I THOUGHT I had seen him, but couldn't remember if he was a pilot or was something else.

Aye, that'd be me Sirrr. ;)


I wonder if they'd ever make an SA GL figure?
The ones we have so far (Sacul, GeorgeTrooper and Baron P) aren't SA.
I'd like to see an SA GL TIE Pilot - ever remember the tiny Action Fleet TIE Pilot?

I think we've given one away nearly every year for the past several for Sandblast! It's very possible we will have them again this year!  :)

I have a few, all gray beard, and they are all still on the card

if I ever happened across a loose one that was affordable I would buy it

but I wont open any of mine

I'd love to get my hands on the white beard variant
