STARGATE ATLANTIS : The ANCIENTS CHAIR

One of my favourite TV series is STARGATE ATLANTIS, a spin off of the STARGATE : SG1 TV Series. In this series the STARGATE team ventures into the Pegasus Galaxy to further explore the STARGATE Universe. Finding the abandoned Ancients facility of Atlantis, they explore more worlds in the STARGATE Universe and encounter some old foes like the Replicators and some new ones like the Wraith.

Helping in the defence of Atlantis is the Ancients Chair which powers some of the most powerful weapons, the ancient drones which have enormous firepower capable of destroying even the most powerful space ships. Powered by those with the ancient genes, those who pose this can control these drones to take down any attacking force. John Sheppard, our hero posses the Ancient gene and is one of the primary defenders of Atlantis.

You would have had to purchase 4 different figures to combine the pieces included with each to build the Ancients Chair.

Quick Guide to Buying on eBay and online

I noticed that a lot of buyers seem not to use a little common sense when buying on eBay or any other online sites. Since you cannot physically handle the item you wish to purchase it is important that you actually read through the description of the item on sale and not base your purchase or bid on the picture or title alone.

Since the picture is open to interpretation and the title may be limited to the number of words that can be used, the description will provide all the specifications for the item that you are looking at. A good description will give you information on :
  • State of the article 
    • MOC - Mint on card
    • MOSC - Mint on sealed card
    • NM - Near mint
    • Loose - item by itself without the box / package
and so on
  • Any accessories or other items that are included in the sale. This is particularly important as it will tell you what you are getting.
  • Color (if relevant)
  • Size
  • Condition - New, Used, Display unit etc
  • Shipping conditions
    • Countries that are shipped to
    • Countries that are not shipped to
    • Shipment services available
    • Shipment costs and handling charges
    • Shipment processing times
    • Shipment estimate delivery times
etc.


If it is an international shipment which has been stated to take approximately 14 days to reach you, don't start worrying after 3 days. It is physically impossible for an international shipment to be fasted the a domestic shipment. International shipments will need to :
  • Go to an international departure point in their country
  • Travel across the globe (air obviously will be faster then land / sea mail )
  • Clear customs in your country
  • Depend on your local postal service to transport inland from the port of arrival to your location
The speed of all these depends on the postal service in your respective countries. Some inland postage will actually take much longer then the actual international journey. You will need to refer to your local postal service for delivery times. You can refer to your local post office website if they operate one in your country such as :http://www.postoffice.com/

TARANTULA - spike feet foe of SPIDER-MAN

Marvel comics presents the fleet of foot foe of SPIDER-MAN, TARANTULA

Marvel Spider-man Tarantula Captain America Fiercest Foe Legends Universe

First incarnation was Anton Miguel Rodriguez appearing in Amazing Spider-Man #134 (July 1974). Meant to be a South American version of Captain America, he went up against Spidey and the Punisher with his band of hijackers. With his razor steel tip feet, he proved to be a dangerous opponent. He has even faced off with Captain America.


Marvel Spider-man Tarantula Captain America Fiercest Foe Legends Universe



Eventually mutating into a monstrous arachnid creature due to an experiment to augment his power, he committed suicide in a hail of police bullets. Several others have taken the mantle of TARANTULA and the name lives on but the original has been captured in the Marvel Spider-man figure collection here.
