The only parts of my collection that they will not get their hands on are my Darth Vader and Darth Maul Master Replicas Force FX lightsabers.  Those are for me!    ;D  I haven't decided if I'm going to get the Anakin and Luke ones for them to play with when they are MUCH older...

And just to update you all, it didn't take me long to decide on the Anakin and Luke.  I ended up buying both this week.  I couldn't help myself, the price was too good to pass up!

Now if I could only figure out how to break it to my wife...

Thanks for the welcomes everyone.  I'm getting settled in quite nicely.  I've posted a few times but mostly have been laying back and observing.  I guess it's the 'people watcher' in me.  So far I like what I see!

Hope to talk to more of you soon.

Other Collectibles / Re: Master Replicas Force FX Lightsabers

Hi Everyone.  I'm new to collecting FX sabers, but I dove right in over the past two months.  I ended up getting the double bladed Darth Maul (favorite character, favorite saber), the ESB Vader, the ROTS Anakin, and the ROTJ Luke.  Although I've missed out on a lot of the first releases (based on what I've read in this thread), I can't see myself going back and completing the set.  One because of the price and two because I wouldn't know where to even begin to locate them.  I do really like this generation of sabers.

I'm pretty glad that I waited until now to get them, as I saved myself a few hundred by getting them on ebay or through the MR package deals that I've split with another collector I work with.

I can't wait to get the ROTS Obi-Wan and would love to see either Dooku made eventually as I love the uniqueness of the hilt.

I have to ask though, has anyone purchased one of the 'Luxeon' versions of these with the sparring blades posted on ebay?  I just want to know how they stack up.

These just hit by me today.  I was able to get two put on hold for me last night when they were unloading them from the truck.  When I went in to pick them up this morning when they opened, the remaining four were nowhere to be seen.

This was only at one of the two TRU's in my area though.  The other still has not gotten them, nor can they confirm when they will be.  I still have another friend that needs two for himself.  Hopefully there will be plenty more to come.

These are great sets and ones that I was happy to shell out $50 for!

Saga Collection '06 / Re: TSC Imperial Shuttle??
« on: May 16, 2006, 09:05 AM »
I'm actually lookiing forward to this as I missed out on the original version from FAO/KB.  And if the $60 price tag holds true that makes it all the better.  I'm getting a little sticker shock with the price of vehicles these days ($30 for the starfighters/hailfire/AAT and $45 for the gunship!!!), so a reduction from the original $100-$125 would be welcomed.

Where my concern comes in is that the smaller Target stores like the one in my area never seem to get the same volume as the Target Greatland stores and thus I usually only see one or two at best of the larger vehicles.  The TIE Fighter was the exception as they had about 6, but 4 of them ended up on clearance for $28.  The shuttle is not something I'm going to wait to go on clearance...

Hi everyone.  Although I'm a new member, I've been browsing around on this site for almost three months now.  I'm friends with a few members and they have sung the praises of this site so much that I just had to sign up.

I've been collecting SW merchandise for only about 18 months.  My collection starts with EP1 up to Saga II, but I was a little late for the VOTC, so I missed out on all of those in the stores.  I haven't brung myself to pay the secondary market cost for that collection so it's going to be the only void I have.

My plan is to pass everything I have purchased on to my two sons when they are old enough to play with it.  Right now, the boys are 2 years and 11 months old, respectively.  Although I assure my wife that the little one won't swallow any of the small parts, she won't let them near anything for at least another 2 years.  (Yes, before you ask, everything is MOC or MIB and it's taking up a rather large portion of my house at the moment.)  Needless to say, I haven't listened to her entirely and bought the older one a basic lightsaber when ROTS came out.  He's quite adept at making sound effects and using it to scare the dog.

The only parts of my collection that they will not get their hands on are my Darth Vader and Darth Maul Master Replicas Force FX lightsabers.  Those are for me!    ;D  I haven't decided if I'm going to get the Anakin and Luke ones for them to play with when they are MUCH older...

That's me.  I look forward to a long stay here.  Thanks!

Hi everyone. I'm new to this site, but have been a member at GH for a while.  I also have a few friends here at JD and have been browsing for some time.  I have been admiring everyone's customs and Photo Novels a lot.

I saw your latest challenge and thought I would post something I worked on a while back.  I know it doesn't qualify, but felt compelled to post it anyway.  I have two very small children so I don't get the chance to customize very much.  This was finished right around the time Hasbro announced that they were releasing their own version of the Clone Wars Cartoon Republic Gunship.  Oh well, I like mine better just because the paint ap on the wings is on the top and bottom, and the wing turrets are black like in the cartoon.

Thanks for letting me share and keep up the great work everyone!
