Other Collectibles / Re: Master Replicas Force FX Lightsabers
« on: December 1, 2006, 09:50 AM »
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!

Shipping to your local comic book store this Wednesday (11/15/2006)...


In case some of you haven't picked this up yet, has this on sale for $3.48 (82% off cover price)!!!  That's not a misprint nor is this a nick and dent item.  These are mint copies.  They also have a deal for free shipping on orders of $25 or more.  I just picked up this and a couple of other tpb's I'd been waiting to get.

I agree on the Snowspeeder.  I'd pick up two if they go on clearance.  There are approximately 20 Kit Fisto Starfighters on top of the action figure aisle and no sign of them getting shelf space any time soon.  Unless those hit rock bottom, I'm not going to bother with those.

At one of my local Targets there were only 6 of these on the shelves.  The same 6 that had been there for a month.  I went yesterday to check things out and the end cap that they were on had been reset for the Mace Battle Pack, etc.  I checked the system and these had been moved to the stock room.  There was no tag on the shelves anywhere for these (as well as the Kit Fisto Starfighter and the 3 general Battle Packs).  I talked to the manager of the toy section, and she said that her action figure sections were set for the rest of the year, and if there was not a spot on the shelves for these and there was merchandise in the stockroom, then it is a distinct possibility that these will be heading for clearance the next cycle.  That would be Wednesday of next week for me.

So all that being said, it might not hurt to start keeping an eye out for these items to show up on clearance soon...  I'll re-post next week if I find anything out.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: "Jedi vs. Darth Sidous" Battle Pack
« on: November 16, 2006, 11:20 AM »
For those of us that are looking for these (Jedi vs. Sidious, Sith Lord Attack, and Sarlacc), has anyone else had a hard time coming across these?  The two Targets by me had one case each that they put out a month ago and have never gotten any more of these in stock.  The TRU and the WM's don't even have a spot on the shelves for these.  Is it too early for these to be coming out in mass quantities, or have I just missed them all completely?

Well.... 12" Greivous has been freed... what a crappy figure it is though!   His weak, tiny hands can't even grasp a single lightsaber... not to mention all 4 of them!   I'll have to get some of the "bands" and use those for posers... err... posES I meant..

I had the exact same review when I opened mine last year.  I actually turned him into a statue and glue the joints so that it would stand properly.  I'm considering getting the arms casted so that they aren't as flimsy.

Worst figure of 2005 IMHO.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: The "Final 22"
« on: November 14, 2006, 09:12 AM »
It definitely looks that way.  If you look at the original 'poster' of the final 22 (I think it's back on page 4), the lightsaber is definitely different than what they originally had shown us.  It seems to fit his had better this way, but I just hope this isn't a sign of things to come in '07.  I'm not a big fan of the wider blade near the hilt.

Now we can all start complaining about the Padme figure :)

And the partially transparent droid...


Update with new wants.  Thanks.

Looking for a non-functioning single bladed Darth Maul Force FX lightsaber.  I need the hilt for a 'project' I'm working on, so I'd prefer the hilt to be in good condition, but the blade can be beat up.  Send me a PM with your asking price.  Thanks.

I got this set for one reason and one reason only.  The man purse.  The 1st ever bonafied Star Wars issued man purse. ;D

In case anyone missed the first issue, when I went to go get 'Dark Times #1' today, they had copies of the second printing of Legacy #1 there as well.  Just thought some people might want to know.
