May wonders never cease.  I just got an e-mail from Hasbro that they credited my order the 10% after I sent them the promo code.  I almost feel like busting into a little 'Today Was a Good Day' from Ice Cube!

I was able to order two  ;D!!!  BrentS e-mailed me too late, but there's a promotional code that you can use with your order to get a discount.  The code is 'COMIC2006'.  I just sent an e-mail to Hasbro in hopes of them modifying my order to give me the discount, but I highly doubt they will.  Then again, I didn't think that I would have a chance to get this figure after they sold out last week.  Good luck everyone!

Saga Collection '06 / Re: TRU Exclusive Endor AT-AT

I was able to confirm that one of the TRUs in my area is getting a shipment of these tomorrow.  My problem is that I really can't justify the $90 price point right now.  If they order these in the same quantity as they did the Falcons last year, these will still be here a year from now.  But if they learned their lesson and have only ordered a limited amount, I may miss out.  The last release came out well before I started collecting.  It's just the price that is making this decision so hard right now.

I'm definitely excited about these!  I really like the stories and her writing style.  Obviously LFL feels the same way otherwise I'm sure that they wouldn't have commissioned two more books.  Now if we can only get them to release tie-ins like a nice Omega squad 4-pack of figures  ;D.

BrentS picked me up a Vader Tie Advanced last night at WM.  The strange thing is that it rang up for $19.96.  I thought that this was in the $29.99 vehicle assortment?  If not, then I saved myself $10 + shipping instead of ordering it from EE.

Got 3 Skirmish Battle Packs last week too for $5 each.

Guess what?  OUT OF STOCK!  After two hours straight of trying to just get one figure, they go out of stock.  Thanks Hasbro, for once again proving why your website is completely useless.  >:(

I second that!

I've gotten to my cart twice, but every time I go to check out I kepe getting 'page cannot be displayed' or 'Error found on page' messages.  ARGH!  >:(

Congratulations!

I tried getting my youngest son to be named Luke Sky Walters, but my wife boycotted that one almost immediately.  Lucas George Walters didn't go over too well either...

I applaud your ability to get Anakin 'approved'.  Must have used a Jedi mind trick...

Just picked up #2 today.  I could only flip through it before I had to get back to work, but Darth Talon has made her Legacy debut.  ;)  I'm very interested to see what's been going on for the last 7 years...

I only picked up 3 VTSC Biker Scouts to go along with my Vintage Biker Scout and Speeder Bike.  I'm sure that I'll be picking up more now that they are going on clearance.  These have always been my favorite Troopers throughout all the movies.

Just got done reading issues #0 and #1.  I definitely like where this is going.  Can't wait for the next installment.

On a related note, this is my first real entry into the events of the New Jedi Order.  Any suggested reading I should check out to get me up to speed on where they are at?  Or I guess better stated, where they have come from?  ???

Thanks for any help you can provide.

That was awesome!  Thanks for sharing Gundam.  If I were one of his two 'assistants', I don't think that I would forget that experience any time soon.

I Am Sith Will you be going for the mace Windu? The hilt is in my oppinion the best one.

I really don't think that I'm going to get a Mace one, but who knows what will happen if the price is right.  If FAO Schwarz puts it up on sale like the Vader and Anakin sabers are this week, I don't think that I could pass it up at $68 like those.

I know that the hilt is great as a friend of mine has one and I've been able to see it up close.  I'm also not crazy about purple.  But my main beef is with the character more than the saber.  He and Jar Jar are by far my two least favorite prequel characters.  I don't mean to offend those of you who like Samuel L. Jackson's character, but I just didn't care for him, especially in EP1.

Call me crazy, but having an 'attachment' to the character is a big deal to me when it comes to getting these lightsabers.  Anakin, Luke, Maul, Vader, I got into all of these characters and was really psyched to get their force fx sabers.  I also can't wait to get the Obi-Wan when it comes out.  With Mace, he was just 'eh' to me in the prequels, so the desire isn't there.

Thanks for the compliments.  I'm quite the perfectionist, almost to a fault.  Since I worked on this a long while ago, I only have a few WIP pictures, but here you go:







The one thing that I remember about the 'face' was that I wasn't pleased with it until I added the black highlights.  That really sealed it for me.  It also covered up minor imperfections where the different colors meld together.  Thanks again.

My favorite story is the Maul story he just slooks so badass.

Mine as well. Very entertaining read!!

I couldn't agree with both of you more!  When I saw the picture of Maul in Insider, I think that it took me all of about 10 seconds to order the book on Amazon.  I thought that the whole book was very well done and I loved some of the concept art that was included.  The tie in of the origin of Grievous in Visionaries to Labyrinth of Evil was great.
