I held off on some items in the past and got burned.  Case in point, the EPISODE I Jabba the Hutt with 2-headed announcer.  I saw it at retail once, thought "Oh, I can buy is later", and it didn't show up again.  That was one of the only instances where I really got burned.

With figures, especially with a select few that have been HTF, I've bought them as soon as possible.  After all, there were some I just never saw at retail.  Case in point, the last wave of Clone Wars.  Never saw it!  Thankfully I was able to trade for them.  That mentality of getting the figures ASAP has helped in numerous instances.  Like the Toy Fair Darth Vader fiasco, the Jorg Sacul figure, Ephant Mon, the McQuarrie Stormtrooper, etc.

But now, several years older and wiser, I'm conciously holding off on the Millenium Falcon.  I don't think they're all going to sell right away.  The pricetag is a little prohibitive for that.  Plus, I'm in the stores often enough to recognize when things start to disappear.  Here's to hoping it goes on clearance at Target around Christmastime!

I've been pretty selective.  I only started getting into this last year when I lucked out and got the blue Clone Trooper bust at Wizard World in Chicago.  I'm focusing mainly on masked characters, and then on characters I like.  I definitely have some serious backtracking to do, and I'm looking to get Vader, Yoda and both Fett's now.  I wish I knew then what I know now.

I don't know about that.  Texas has been pretty hot.  I think it'll be the A's winning the west, but Texas bringing in the wild card.

So, anyone here going to be attending this show?  I met Dustrho at this show last year, and it's always cool to meet other forum members.

I can't wait to see the IG-88 bust in person this weekend.  I wonder if the Gentle Giant guys would mind if I "borrowed" theirs?  ;D

I hope Gentle Giant has some news for us at Wizard World this coming weekend about the Bust Ups line.  I'd love to know what the third wave is going to be like.

I was very happy with this set.  Having them not blindpacked made it a lot easier to get a set.  I even scored a set for $20.  Not bad, IMO.  The Yoda looks like it might be big enough to stand in for a 3-3/4" scale Yoda.  Very cool, even if he isn't very posable.

I just read there is a 12" Randy that true?  And if so I may want one!

Yeah.  I've seen it in the store a couple of times.

The big news today is about the Pro Bowl Clinton Portis that went on sale today.  It's only at, and at the cheap price of $19.99 each.  :o

Not dead.

An EB Games store near me had the Biker Scout on display as part of the promotion for Battlefront.  I think word is getting around about the game and the figure.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC/OTC Purchases

I can't believe I actually found some OTC figures I WANTED.  Scored these today:

OTC Luke X-Wing Pilot
OTC Luke Jedi
OTC Bossk

Found ML 6 today in NJ and NY!  And, it was at WalMart & TRU...even better!  Scored Juggernaut, brown Wolverine and movie Punisher.  Those were the only ones I saw.

But the coup de grace for todays haul?  A loose yellow Daredevil!  I know it cost $20, but I think it was a pretty sweet find.

I saw Shelob today at a Comic Shop.  They wanted $20 for her, so I passed.  It looks great, though!

Revenge of the Sith / Re: AT-TE
« on: August 6, 2004, 07:41 PM »
While I've heard rumor of a high price ticket item, I can say that it isn't the AT-TE.  I've heard that a playset might be on the way, and that might be occupying that price point.

I would definitely like to see an AT-TE.  I think it's a pretty cool vehicle, but I think the only way we might see it is if it's about the size of the Republic Gunship and is offered at a $39.99 price point.

I like the blast door frame behind him, and the blaster shots going by just add the icing to this cake!
