Jocasta's Reading Room / Re: Rare hardcovers?

PM replied!

Yes you can join SFBK to avoid this, however if the books are only released in the 2-in-1 or 3-in-1 omnibus hard cover versions, you're going to have to wait until the second or third books in the series are released and they 'create' the combined hardcovers.  I can tell you right now that they still have the 'Republic Commando' Duology available and the 'Dark Nest' 3-in-1 available at SFBC.  They also have the three Legacy of the Force novels that weren't released in mass market hard cover (Bloodlines, Exile, and Tempest).

I'm waiting until I move into my new place to join SFBK, but I plan on getting all 5 Legacy of the Force novels and the Dark Nest 3-in-1 for the low low price of $19 for the 6 books and avoid getting bent over on ebay for these h/c releases in the future...

I just wish I would have known all this back when the NJO novels were all still available!

Rob,

I'm in the same boat as you.  I just started to buy them and am running into problems with NJO.  All but 4 of the NJO books were released in paperback or were only Sci-Fi Book Club 2-in-1 or 3-in-1 Omnibus hard covers.  The very rare exceptions to this are Traitor, Dark Journey, and The Final Prophecy.  Those were only SFBK hard cover single book editions.  Those are the ones I've seen sell for >$75 on ebay.

There are also issues with some of the Republic Era, Empire Era, and New Republic Era novels.  Almost all of the 3 book series (Jedi Academy, Black Fleet Crisis, Bounty Hunter Wars, etc) were only released in 3-in-1 Omnibus hard covers.  Otherwise you're stuck with only getting them in paperback.  Some of those hard covers are easier to come by, but there are the exceptions too.

I have a fairly extensive and accurate list of all of the novels released.  If you want, shoot me a PM and I can send it to you.

Bump with updates.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Recent 30AC Purchases

McFett yesterday.

I'm in.  Great give-away yet again!

So am I the only one that's bothered by the fact that Hermie's green on the cardback and pink as a figure?  I think that the figure itself is great, I'm just curious as why there's such a color difference.

Also, I like the KOTOR figures, but Malak's jaw piece is way too big.  That's unfortunate because I was really looking forward to that figure.

The EP1/EP2 Obi-Wan was on their 30th Anniversary product listing either late last year or early this year along with a Jedi Jow build your own force FX lightsaber.  I honestly would be shocked if we see either one of them...

1794
I am praying that the TPM Kenobi FX saber gets made.

I have been praying for the same thing, but this late in the year, I doubt that they would go through the trouble...

The Vintage Collection / Re: Hasbro Q&A Sessions

Or maybe I should hope they're animated, so I can save a small fortune.

I'm with you Rob, I really could use a break for a while with the amount I'm spending.  This year has been the worst yet and I could use some time off.

Well, thanks to a push from a fellow collector (thanks BrentS), I just pre-ordered this Wave from NFC.  This is my first case purchase and I'm having a bit of sticker shock, but I know that this is for the best as I want everything from this wave.  Considering that this Wave also comes packed with the Wave 4 Concept Vader and a Stormtrooper, it made pre-ordering it a no brainer.  And thankfully this won't ship until Sept/Oct, so I'll have enough time to save my pennies...

Sounds good. I have nothing to wager though, sorry...  Spending WAY too much money on figures these days  ;D

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: EE Mandalorian 14 Pack

I thought that I read if you've pre-ordered an item from EE, you are able to cancel the order if you're unhappy with the final product once it's revealed...  I'll try to find that reference.

I'd keep going but well, it is being marketed as a bit of a mystery set.  (And don't forget EE lets you cancel any pre-order with no penalty if you order it on Tuesday and decide after the announcement that you don't much care for it.  Risk-free, yay.)   That's good enough for now, I think, so there ya go!

Found it.  I'm still glad that I ordered this set.  If you look back through what Adam did report, he said that there will be a lot of accessories (guns, holsters, backpacks) and a lot of parts to 'inspire new creations'.  If it were one Mando and 13 clones, I don't see that being possible.  Also, he said that 'the characters in this set, by and large, look quite different from one another with a couple of exceptions'.  I'm going to bet that there will be numerous clones (I'd bet two to three per pack) and multiple Mandolorians.  I'm still holding out hope for the SA Jango, Kal Skirata, and null-ARC Ordo.  I guess we'll find out next month.

So is EE not going to reveal the identities of the other figures? I'm not purchasing something that I have no clue to what it's going to contain.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC/OTC Purchases
« on: June 11, 2007, 10:13 AM »
I'm very late to picking up the VOTC line, but I purchased the entire set for just under original retail price including shipping.  I couldn't resist after picking up last year's and this year's lines.
