And Ruiner, since you told me to keep count we are at:

2 new tools
3 repaints

So far, you're closer to being right...

We're wagering a set right?

Ha!  I seem to recall saying that I have nothing to wager at that time...  I really need to make sure that post doesn't get deleted...

I guess we can consider this one of the other re-paints that Adam elluded to earlier.  I was planning on doing a squad of my own black deco Rep Commandos, so this just saves me the work.  I really would have liked to have them SA though...  Oh well, not the end of the world IMO.

Thanks for the 501st Airborne and the fast shipment.  Always a pleasure to buy from you!

Just a heads up, Master Replicas is running their Scavenger Hunt 'Christmas in July' sale today and I've come across the Yoda Force FX lightsaber for $79.99 and the Darth Maul Battle Damaged Force FX lightsaber for $89.99 already.  The add says to check back periodically durinig the day for updates.  Might be worth it for people who have been waiting to buy some MR items...

Great purchase!

The nice thing that I've found is that most of SFBK's items are less than retail and comparable to Amazon.  I refuse to buy books from Borders or Waldenbooks because they are always 10%-20% or more higher than on-line.

Good luck in getting the rest of the hardcovers you're looking for!  I'll try not to get in a bidding war with you on ebay for the rare ones!

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!

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.

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.

PM sent.

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...

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...

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.
