First encounter with Ross. It's nice to see someone like 2 mins away with the same interests. Went over for a quick transaction and was exposed to SW collecting heaven. Awesome collection Ross!!! I was in total awe of it! Man it puts my collection to shame, I can't call myself a collector anymore :'(. I'm not worthy  :(  Hope to meet again, gotta have another look at the treasures. Thanks for the fig Ross. :-*

I'll have to agree with every other post in this thread and say that Old Man Ben is one of the greatest traders on this forum.  He was a great communicator and very patient.  With his help I was able to bring my ROTS collection one step closer to being complete.  Never have any fears in dealing with this member as he is as helpful in building others collections as he is for his own.

Thanks Old Man Ben! :-* :-* :-*

Ross is a great guy.  Helped me out with the Tarkin wave big time!  Also had the priviledge of seeing Ross' collection in person, and wow is it impressive.  Very nice displays and TONS of stuff!  If any of you troopers get the chance to trade with OMB and are closeby, you should see his collection, it is really awesome.  

Thanks again Ross, appreciate the help getting the figures!  Peace.

Just snagged the AT-TE from Ross today -- thanks again to OMB for grabbing one of these huge puppies at the recent clearance sale for me!  :)`

Hope we get a chance to chat in person the next time!


Title: Re: Old Man Ben
Post by: Massacre Mike on March 10, 2009, 10:30:26 AM
Met up with Ross at his place two Saturday's ago (yep, I've pretty slow with the feedback, apologies) and picked up three AT-TEs that he'd snagged at the 20 dollar clearance price - one for me and two to be distributed to other Troopers.

Ross is a fantastic fellow and I'd highly recommend dealing with him.

(Ross's dog managed to orchestrate an escape while I was doing the AT-TE pick up however and I hope Ross managed to retrieve him without too much difficulty!)      :mad0218:
Title: Re: Old Man Ben
Post by: Hellboy on March 10, 2009, 12:08:51 PM
I'm an idiot too! Sorry for the delayed public appreciation!

Ross deserves as many thumbs up as this post can handle. He definitely went above and beyond to help a bunch of us out with the AT-TE connection.

Title: Re: Old Man Ben
Post by: Darth McAdam on March 10, 2009, 12:45:54 PM
Maybe we should form a splinter group called the Delayed Public Appreciation Society....

Ross kindly sent me a till receipt for an AT-TE that will hopefully enable me to pick one up for $20.  I also like the idea of getting another for the toy fund that somebody suggested, so might get two.

Anyway, thanks to Ross for sending me the receipt.  Much appreciated!

Just got my first Black Series 3.75" Rogue One figure from Old Man Ben. He went way out of his way to make the transaction as smooth and as easy on the pocket book as possible.

Excellent dealing with him.
