I'm not sure if anyone is still looking for these or not, but tfaw is having a sale at the moment and both the battle damaged and clean white trooper 4-packs are on sale for $29.99 each.

Just picked up Legacy #5 this morning.  Very good issue!  Picks up at the end of #3.  I don't want to spoil the issue for anyone, so I'll just tease it a little.  Darth Talon has tracked down the Mynock...

Saga Collection '06 / Re: "Battle Above the Sarlaac" Battle Pack
« on: October 31, 2006, 08:59 AM »
I know that some of us have complained that Hasbro is re-releasing a lot of old figures in the most recent Battle Packs, but I wanted to relay a story from last night.

I was shopping with my two sons yesterday for non-Star Wars related merchandise (I know, for shame) when I saw a 6-7 year old boy walking around with the Carkoon Battle Pack in his hands.  He had the biggest smile on his face as he was looking at all the figures and from the looks of it he couldn't have been happier.

I can't begin to explain how happy I was to not only see a young kid getting into Star Wars (especially an item from the OT), but to see him genuinely happy with what we consider to be re-hashed items we would just assume pass on.

This gives me at least a little hope that when my kids are old enough to play with the toys I'm buying, they will be as happy as the kid I saw last night.  So keep pumping out those Battle Packs Hasbro.  I for one will continue to buy them.

This put a pretty big smile on my face last night and I thought that I would share.   ;D

Thanks Brent, I was going to post some boxed images, but I think these are much better.

I really like that Airborne Trooper.  I can't wait until next year's carded Utapau version.

I'll try to get a picture up tonight when I get home from work.  Boxed images ok?

Although I think that the Limited Edition is an unbelievable package, there's no way I can justify $400 for it.  I have the hardcover in my Wishlist already.

BTW, a Borders employee posted on GH that some stores are marking down the single bladed Darth Maul Force FX lightsabers to $69.  Might be worth it for those of you who have been holding out until now.

FInally ! I have been wanting one forever ! Now to find one !

I found these at a Borders by me for $79.99 each, so if you're still looking send me a PM and I can pick one or two up for you.

I know that I should post this in the classifieds, but thought I should start here first.  Anyone out there have a non-functioning single bladed Darth Maul lightsaber they are looking to get rid of?  I have a project that I'm working on and need a single bladed version.  If you could send me a PM I'd appreciate it...  Thanks.

I like how the description says that 'Price may vary by location'.  Can anyone else see this getting put on the shelves for more than $59.99?

Yeah, looks like next year according to the flyer (30th Ann.).  I hope that since they have adjusted both the hilt and the blade for the Yoda saber, they are also going to adjust the price accordingly.  I know, wishful thinking on my part, but it can't hurt to wish.

All issues, regular and alternate cover copies, are expected to arrive in stores by the first week of November.

Anyone near any of these locations?

I'm going to be interested to see if they offer a connection piece in the build your own lightsaber kit (like the one for the Darth Maul double bladed saber).  I'd love to have another double bladed saber in either green or blue.

Have I missed something somewhere or can someone explain to me what 'Force FX-Q' is?!

Very cool, it's about time they made the Yoda!

I too am looking forward to this.  Has anyone seen on DH's web-site that they are issuing a limited edition version of #1 with an alternate cover?  If not, here's the link:

http://www.darkhorse.com/profile/profile.php?sku=10-965

There will only be 1000 copies of this available.  If anyone is able to come across an extra one of these when they are released, I'm very interested.

Thanks.  I did notice the difference, but didn't make the connection that it might be a filler issue.  That makes more sense now.  I still wish the issues came more frequently though.  I guess that I'm going to have to fill my time between 'Legacy' issues by starting to read 'Dark Times' when it comes out.
