Things I want. . .
I collect Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazines.
Trying to say which I need is kinda tricky (I haven't even really
updated my database recently, let alone figured out how to publish it
on the Web). I generally value EQMMs at at most $3 apiece (for issues I
do not yet have) ($4 for issues before 1960). I don't have any of the
first four issues (Fall 1941--May 1942), and those will probably cost
me a lot more to get. I'm told that the second issue is especially rare
(I saw it in a Seattle bookstore a few years ago for $25).
I also collect stories by Edward D. Hoch. Again, determining what
is needed is tricky. There are a few relevent books on my Amazon Wish
List (how do you create links to those things, anyway?).
Most of the interesting Lego sets are only available from Lego Shop-at-Home. Sets of interest: Y-Wing (10134), Durmstrang Ship (4768), Darth Vader Transformation (7251), General Grievous Chase (7255). and Ultimate Space Battle (7283).
I'm trying to be Star Wars Lego complete through 2003. Sort of. I am SW complete through 2002; for newer sets, the LUGNET Guide pages should say if I have a particular set.
Accessory packs are always good. Lego Shop-at-Home has lots, most of which should have discounts for quantities of fifteen packs or more. Stuff I could use:
Of those, probably the most needed are gray plates.
Other useful stuff: straight train track (4515) and points (4531) are
always good. I think the best value for track might be one of the track
kits, the Deluxe (K3531).

I like Uno bars, especially the mint kind (which is presumably why those have been discontinued).
Jolt Cherry Bomb is my favourite kind of pop. The only sources I can
find in the Northwest (or, really, anywhere) are Bartell's Drugs and
