Alright, yet another poll about bases!  I'm in discussions with a distributor for the Bandai Action Bases, about purchasing a case for sale on my website.  For those that don't remember, here are the pictures:

They are pretty cool, and can be linked together to hold multiple models together.  They retail for about $4.75 on HLJ, and I'd probably be selling them for about $5.75 to cover shipping of the bases to me from my distributor - but the question is, is anyone interested in these?  Vote now!

EDIT: Oh, one other thing - please only vote if you're serious about purchasing these from me - I want to have an idea of numbers before I actually place an order - thanks!

Those are pretty nice looking actually. I'd take 2 off your hands.

The more I think about it... I might get more than 2... just because I could use them on some of my older kits to replace some of the crappy bases or the excessively large one of the Shinobi Strike.

I'd actually like 3 of them, but my question is (because I don't have a credit or ATM card) can I pay with cash? If not, it's cool because i can just have a friend buy it and then pay him back, but if so, awesome.
ime is of the essence.

yes, it is!  I will come after you now!   Muahahahaha!  Actually, no, it's not binding - I just don't want the people voting in the poll who have no intention of ever purchasing this base from me - makes estimating whether I can sell a case worth of these guys pretty difficult to determine.

That's really what I wanted to see - since they come in case quantities of 60!  I'm working out the details right now, but I should be buying these in the next few days...
