DarkKnight2k4, I'll definitely let you know if I come across any of these.

On a personal note, I was able to secure two non-functioning DM sabers today.  Once I get these, I'm going to start working on my full hilt, single bladed version of the Force FX saber.  I'm extremely excited to take one of these bad boys apart!  I plan on taking some WIP pics in case anyone is interested in seeing the guts of one of these.  More to come...

I've still got to pick up....

-Maul double bladed
-Obi-Wan E3
-Palpy if they ever do it

I think at that point I'd be FX sabered out...  Maybe a QGJ would be buyable but it's not a necessity to me either, I dunno.  I'm not going for an ANH Luke though since I consider E3 Anakin's that same saber...  I would only consider buying newer models if they were a substantial improvement like removable blades and stuff...  These are cool higher-end collectible that's still semi-affordable.


I really want an Obi EP3 as well, but I also really like the Obi EP2 one that is coming out next year.  I'm kind of like you, after I get those two, I'm considering my collection complete.  The Yoda would be really cool, but I'd have a hard time convincing my kids that it's not for them...  Since I'm throttling back on my action figure/vehicle purchases next year, I'm hopefully going to be in a better position to get these.

I've been wanting the Mace and double Maul forever. Just need to wait for a deal. THought I had own with tfaw but kinda scared now.

You can find double Maul FX sabers on ebay now and again for $120 Buy It Now prices.  The shipping is usually about $20 or less.  Considering that I paid about $160 for mine when it came out, that's not a bad deal.

One thing to keep in mind though is that this really is a BIG saber when it's fully assembled.  I've gotten to the point where I only combine them for special occasions.  I've been looking for a damaged one that someone is trying to get rid of so that I can disassemble the blade and just use the hilt to create a single-bladed, full hilt version of this.  Haven't come across one yet...

Good luck on your hunt!

I am all over this figure!  Sorry to those of you that aren't interested in it/don't like it.  To me, the more bad guys the better, EU or not!  But here's to hoping that Hasbro goes the extra mile on this and does the coloring appropriately as well.  I'd hate to see them put out a great sculpt only to have them miss the mark once it's painted.

I'm really just glad that we are finally getting a 'Darth' that isn't the 4th or 5th re-release of the same figure...

'cough' 500th Vader 'cough'

Just wondering if it's just me or...

I have my account set to keep me logged in. Randomly this weekend, I had to re-log in. Since then, threads I've read before, start at post 1 every time I click on the thread. Is it me or is there some technical error somehwhere?

Same thing is going on with me too.

I think I'm going to save myself a lot of trouble and just get the troopers and battle droids, that is if I can find them all.  Also, since I missed it, I'm going to have to pick up the VOTC Boba Fett too.

2007 Saga Legends Shocktrooper (Battle Pack) X2
2007 Saga Legends Battle Droid 2-Pack (Tan)
2007 Saga Legends Battle Droid 2-Pack (Maroon)
2007 Saga Legends Battle Droid 2-Pack (Blaster Damage)
2007 Saga Legends Battle Droid 2-Pack (Lightsaber Damage)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Trooper (Clone Wars 03-50) X2
2007 Saga Legends Boba Fett (VOTC)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Trooper (new - SA 501st) X2
2007 Saga Legends Sandtrooper (Evolutions - White Pauldron) X2
2007 Saga Legends Clone Commander (Evolutions - Ep3 Grey)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Officers (EE Set - Red) X2
2007 Saga Legends Clone Officers (EE Set - Yellow) X2
2007 Saga Legends Clone Officers (EE Set - Blue) X2
2007 Saga Legends Clone Officers (EE Set - Green) X2

So not as bad as Jeff, but I'm in for at least 22 and I know that I'll be buying all of next year's Battle Packs as well.  Hopefully I will be able to cut back on the basic line quite a bit...

Thanks for the info and the shipping code!

Yeah, they are at $21 right now, but I'm sure they won't last long.  I picked one up last night.  If I'm lucky enough to find another one at $15, then bonus for me, but I don't think they'll be around that long.

I just got off the phone with tfaw and the guy I spoke with said that in most cases it's just the box that has been damaged.  They will take out the saber, check it for damage and functionality, but the box is damaged and has been opened.

At this point I didn't feel too bad about it.  However he continued on.

He also mentioned that it could be a display item that has had minimal handling, and he was pretty vague on whether it could have been a 'return' that is being re-sold.

So all that being said, I'm not going to take the chance on this since there are no returns on these items.  If they could assure that it was only an item where the box was damaged and the lightsaber was mint inside and functioning appropriately, I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

Good luck if anyone decides to get one.

I just scored the Rogue Two Snowspeeder for $14.98! That's no typo! I couldn't believe it when I saw the endcap loaded with Snowspeeders marked with a huge red sign %50 off! Freaking sweet.

That is awesome!  I can only hope that the remaining ones in my store make it to the next markdown.  Merry Christmas to you!

Yeah I still have one.  I use it primarily for my kids' tapes (Disney, etc) and the rare movie I still haven't repurchased on DVD.  It's probably 10+ years old now so I'm sure it will be dying soon.

I just got an e-mail from and they are advertising the Mace and Luke FX sabers in 'Nick & Dent' condition for $60 each.  They also have a shipping code of 'HOLIDAY2006' to get $10 off shipping.

I'm going to call them up later this morning to get clarification of what exactly constitutes a nick and dent lightsaber (is the box just beat up or is there something scratched/dented or otherwise on the saber itself).  Once I find out I'll pass along their description.

Yeah, I ran into these last night and picked up two Snowspeeders.  If you can find them, $21 is a good price for these.  There were only 4 at my Target.  There are approximately 20 Kit Fisto Starfighters on the shelves however, so I'm going to hold out until possibly the next round of price reductions.

I realize the last post on this was some two years ago, but I just started on a Hard Cover book buying spree because my wife is setting up a library in our den.  I thought that I'd let the Star Wars novels take a prominent spot on the shelves, so I started with this book.  In the last three weeks, I've gotten about 20 HC books off ebay for almost nothing (I paid $6 including shipping for this one and it's in mint condition).

Anyway, I really liked this book.  The character development was really good and you get a better sense of what Maul is all about.  This book combined with the Dark Horse comics series on him are a really good combination.  My only regret in reading this book was that you can pretty much guess how it's going to end after the first 5-6 chapters.

Also, for anyone who has not read this book or Cloak of Deception by James Luceno, read that book first.  I wish I would have read this thread prior to starting Shadow Hunter, because now I'm reading Cloak of Deception and a lot of the characters and situations from Cloak of Deception carryover into Shadow Hunter.  I'm only about half way through CofD, but it is a really good read.  It sets up the events from EP1 in a much better light.  Luceno gives a lot of depth to the origins of the Trade Federation and the discontent in the Senate.

I highly recommend both of these books to anyone looking to bolster their pre-EP1 knowledge.

I too would love to see some Rep Commandos stories, but with Traviss signed on for two more novels, I wonder if there would be problems with crossover...

I think that I'm going to have to ditch the single issues of Legacy here soon because I will definitely be buying the 'Broken' tpb when it comes out so there's no sense in me continuing to buy them as single issues.  But I just can't get enough!
