Thanks Sweetest for the directions, went with my mate in his car, and picked up some new 19' wheels for my new project car.

You weren't kidding with the housies!!! F#$% me if they weren't the shiftiest people I had ever come across. I bought the wheels via Ebay, so I had no idea where this place was.

My mate was a bit apprehensive of the estate/village they lived in, as it was one way in and the same way back out.

I was a bit put off by being offered everything but the kitchen sink on the cheap. Guess it didn't help to turn up in a Porsche Cayene 4wd. They were like the Pikies in Snatch.... LOL

Got my wheels and saved a stack of money on em, so money for the swap meet, lol, I just got to wait for the wheels to cool down before they go on the project, cos they're obviously hot as hell.... hahahaha

I sense a town planner with a mortal Kombat fetish
Goro + Shao Kahn = Gorokan......
speaking of which an article in todays West Aust on how Midway are filing for some sort of temporary bankruptcy as they owe something like 200 mill... basically saying that they haven't managed to get much success developing for the new consoles + the huge cost to develop a game for said consoles....guess DC VS MK didn't do too well?

Actually DC Vs MK did extremely well...It exceeded expectations big time...But Midway were in the shit before it shipped and it just didn't make enough to save them unfortunately... Crying or Very sad

Haha no worries Scream. It's been what, 5 or so years?

UCK, DBF, interested in sharing a table next time? I'll probably still have some junk to get rid of then...

You guys just need to make note of what people asked for that you said "Yes! I have that! At home..." to. And then bring those things Wink
But yeah let me know if you do closer to then.

Well it was another good day, didn't buy much as its hard to buy when you have most of it, lol

Items purchased Giganta, a few boxes of JUJYFRUITS, DCSH Darkseid, Hellboy Animated DVD, 12" Bobby Lashey, TMNT van, the last 2 were for customizing. Oh a bag of diorama bits from the wealthy MR UCK, who I think had the sale of the day, but Ill leave that for him to disclose...

Oh and I scored two more sentinels from DBF, come on I have OCD!!!!!

Alot more Marvel at this meet, many many many carded ML's, one table had everything ML from FFC Skrulls (all 3) to ML series 2 - 15, and HML Variants galore.

Star Wars was a little less at this show, but its the trend, each show has more of one than the other.

Me and Sweetest discussed taking pics but it never happened.

UCK - Im so buying partial Blob next time and I need Legor - the Eternian Court Jester with battle cartwheel action, no MOTU collection could be called complete with out it.

DCUC got a massive showing too, with a range from series 5-7, no none varient was over $30, so decent pricing too, heres my haul!!



Orion is the 2 pack version, cost me $10 loose! And far too many spare legs for my liking, although Lego the amazing leg man was indeed a hit....
And FIELDY, i am officially HANGING for DCUC series 6, that Kalibak and Mr Miracle will finish off my Apokolips shelf nicely, although i may need some green parademons now....d'oh......

I'm just happy to hear you made it out of Gorokan. I will definitely be at the next one, sounds like I'm missing out on too much fun.

DCUC 6 is my favourite wave to date.

Oh, and you need lightwave as well.
