Default "Statues/Busts I Want"-potential new thread?

with the Vault coming to an eventual end, it seems that other than Ebay (and what we might find at a comic book store or convention) the only place that someone could find a statue would be here. Now we do have the "Statues for Sale" thread which is a big help but this is my idea to get the right statue into the right hands.

"Bowen Fan X" would like the following
-a Daredevil Statue (red costume)
-Moon Knight Statue
-X-Characters for their budding X-Men display

Bowen Fan X would post his list under the "Statues/Busts I Want" thread. I would see his post and even though I am not actively selling my statues I might be like "I had these statues for a while and now someone else should enjoy them" or "I could use some extra cash", etc.

I do not know how well this would go over but I think that we all have statues that we want and I think that this forum is a much better place to buy and sell than Ebay. What does anyone else think?


Hoping for a Phase 6 with FS Statues of the following

  • Moondragon
  • Mantis
  • Wonder Man (in the Perez Designed costume)
  • Havok (need a new one in his classic costume because the existing one is too expensive on Ebay)
  • The Red Guardian (The Defenders member-this one is a longshot)
  • and a REALLY GOOD Phoenix Museum pose

I like the idea. A central area for it rather than mixed in with the various sale threads. They get lost all too often.

Excellent idea.
I picked up a couple of difficult to find items (not statues) when eBay offered it's "Want It Now" postings in the past. Unfortunately I think they've eliminated that option, but it certainly worked for me at the time.
Most newspaper classifieds offer "Wanted" sections, so I don't see why it wouldn't be helpful on SM also.

I like the idea, but I thought we kind of already did that? People create a new thread titled: "WTB: XXXX statue". By being a new thread it shows up as new for people who watch for new threads. By having it in one thread, you have to sometimes scroll through right?

Not trying to nix the idea, just thinking it though, but I agree a way for people to quickly find a seller would be helpful.

Yeah, that's a good idea. I think it might work better as a forum than just a thread, though. This forum moves pretty quickly and that's without all the traffic you could expect with Bowen in full swing. I think one thread would get swallowed up and lost too easily. You also have to consider the people that may not be aware of the thread, whether new users or not active at the moment. They'll probably just post their own WTB threads. So, yeah...great idea, but maybe a For Sale forum and a Want To Buy forum would work best. ...if that's workable. It'd definitely be cleaner and quicker than having to scroll through all of the FS threads.

I like this even better. Make a WTB thread and update it when needed.

I like the idea too, maybe as a sticky?

All my resources are devoted to buying as much as I can from the Vault now, but that only has so much longer to go, and then there'll still be 50-60 pieces that I'll still want. Better to buy here if possible.
