The Collectorate Update: Dynamic Abbreviations

Posted by Chuck | October 26, 2008 at 08:38 AM ET |

The Weelky Collectorate Update!

Dynamic Abbreviations

There are a lot of abbreviations associated with Star Wars collecting. Heck, any collecting for that matter. The abbreviations that collectors encounter can be a challenge if you don't know what they mean. There are not a lot of sources to help learn them. In most cases, if an explanation of the abbreviations exists on a site it can be hard to find and the list is not right with you when you see an abbreviation you don't know. MOC, MISB, ARC, ODST? These abbreviations in the product listing can be real important in choosing what you want and getting the right item.

Visual Guide Update - TLC Greatest Hits 1-4

Posted by Chuck | October 18, 2008 at 09:00 AM ET |

    The Legacy Collection has produced more subsets of figures than any collection to date! There's the basic figures, of course, but there's also the build-a-droid set, the Saga Legends, the 1st Day of Issue set for all the carded collectors out there, and now we have the Greatest Hits set. This very subtle subset consists of figures from the recent past, mixed in with the BAD figures in the same packaging, but with different numbers! Confused yet? To make things even more dicey for die-hard carded collectors, the included droid part changes depending on which wave the GH figures are released with. Don't worry, we've got these straight re-packs broken down in detail as we add this set to the Enhanced Visual Guides!

Changed Collecting Has... The Weekly Collectorate Update

Posted by Chuck | October 10, 2008 at 04:21 PM ET |

    You, the collectors, have spoken, and we at THE COLLECTORATE have listened!

For the past several weeks, fellow collectors have been asking us questions and making suggestions. We have been listening and learning!

Many Halo Collectors in particular told us that they generally open their figures after purchase. And some Star Wars Collectors told us they were “Army Builders” who also open their figures. However, we also heard from other Star Wars collectors who really liked the idea of their action figures coming with and being shipped in a protective plastic case (See Preview Article #4 on our Splash Page).

Why not have it both ways?
