About this journal

Hey folks, trying something a little different. I have been on the hunt for this book for several years now. I have a 9.6 and a 9.4. I had the chance to pick up the 9.8 on eBay a couple years ago but at the time I still needed about 30 other books to complete my set. Couldn’t justify the asking high price at the time. I am now at a point where this book is the LAST 9.8 that I need to have all books 9.8 or above in my set!

I’ve had a WTB post for over a year. I’ve met some awesome people through that post and was able to obtain a few others that were on the original post from other board members.

Starting this journal as another means to get the word out but also as a place where I can occasionally comment on how my search is going.

Thanks for reading and please let me know if you can help.

In The Meantime…

As I continue my search for my infamous ‘last 9.8’ life must go on. This is where I will talk about my collecting endeavors related to this set and things that come my way... in the meantime.  The inspiration for this entry is this Cyborg Superman 1:3 scale statue by Prime 1 Studios. This statue was worth the wait!  I ordered this in January 2019 and finally received it last week.  Almost three years!  I did the payment plan option through Sideshow and had this paid off for over a year... t

This is a place holder journal entry for when I DO find this book.  Positive thinking... positive thinking!!

Something Funny...

I've had a couple different WTB posts as my search for all of the books in my set progressed.  I gave up on the first couple as I was still new to the Forums and didn't understand how to put the books in one post, provide an offer price, bump it, etc. Then on 2 June 2020 I started a fresh WTB post for the last handful of books I needed... that post led me to find a few and I also submitted a few myself to whittle the number of books down...there were finally just two, and then one... the bo

So the other day one of these popped up on eBay for $350.00 BIN... raw!  I have to be honest and say that if I really thought that a copy of this book had a legitimate chance at 9.8 I don't think that price is too too (yes, two too's) high.  However, in order to fork out that much cash for a raw I would need tons of pics and be pretty confident with what I see. I'm not trying to criticize the seller at all as anyone has the right to ask what they think something is worth... on the other han

A Submission!

Although I had mentioned that finding a raw to submit was unlikely, earlier this year I did send a book in and am awaiting results. Got the book off of eBay for around $50.00. It certainly has a few issues. I think much of it will press out but I do not think this is my 9.8. If anything I think I sent this book in just for the excitement of sending a copy of this bad boy in myself… Looks like a small tear through the cover… lets see what CCS does with those den

The Search So Far...

Wanted to kick this off by including the current discription of this book in my set.  This pretty much details my search so far: "com·ple·tist - noun - an obsessive, typically indiscriminate, collector or fan of something."  Dictionary This is the last book in this set that is not 9.8 or above.  I believe the 9.6 you see here could have just as easily came back 9.8.  If I get my hands on a second 9.6 before I find a 9.8, I will submit this copy for CPR... as much as I think this book
