Up till the other night I had seen 2 total at retail.  Got the rest in trades and from Matt.  Not abundant here, but those 4 I found I personally think are stock that's been sitting in the back of WM for a time, ya know?

It's like the ANH wave clogged them up so much the other stuff came in, but never saw the floor till now.  I know that when the Falcon Carrying Cases came out, there was no room for them on the shelves and then they got dumped out on an endcap within the store for clearance because they were old.  At the time I gobbled up all that I could for the scanner techs and sold the cases off as fodder junk for cheap.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC/OTC Purchases
« on: January 3, 2005, 01:02 AM »
I picked up 3 ANH VOTC tonight (Leia, Ben, and Luke) at Wal-Mart, a Scanner Tech, and 2 Cloud Car Pilots...

Figured I'd get some custom fodder while I had the $ and it was available.  In my neck of the woods, the ANH wave is only at select Wal-Marts while others are bare bones dry of VOTC or have some ESB leavins.  The WM I went to tonight is a lower traffic one, but any of the busy ones are darn near empty of figures at all.

The MP reference was inevitable...

Fans could do Star Wars over so much more funny if given the resources to do so.  Bah at Lucas and his poor sense of humor.

Hey Bob,

Great photos man...  Efforts have been made all night to whip something up for it on the main page but tech difficulties have been a plague for quite some time so I'm just giving up now...  Someone with more knowledge with this stuff is gonna have to handle this one.

Thanks for sharing the photos though.  They look grat...  I dig the colors and the style of packaging we're gonna see actually.  I wasn't too keen on it, but it really does look nice the more you see it.  It grows on you.

Very cool stuff man,

Jesse

Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS Pegwarmers?

At $6.99 a pop, should this continue, I'm going to lay my bet down that everybody undersells what they're hoping for, and that no figure is safe.

Just too damn much money.

$5.99's pushing it as it stands...  POTC's got some, sadly, regretful choices in it.

Oh I knew you'd twist that to your own benefit.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Green Crossbow Question
« on: January 1, 2005, 06:35 PM »
I got a Green CB Chewie years ago, and the green's most noteable when you hold it up to the light...  It shines green almost. 

That's my understanding of this variation anyway...  That it's incredibly easy to miss unless you inspect it.

It's sort of neat to have, but nothing to flip over either.  It's definitely green though when you see it in light...  Which that scan looks like it sort of illuminates the gun.

Hey Bob,

When showing photos from Photobucket, I always just use the button here:



Then just right click the image you want to show to anyone, go to "properties" and copy the images link (from Photobucket) into the image button's tag lines.

Make it an accurate rebel fleet trooper with working holster and removable helmet...  Then we'll talk.
 
I have my stormtrooper, thank you very much. :P

The "post sober" motto seems to continue...  :)

Vinty figures?  I'd have killed the man myself...  Modern I woulda let it slide with maybe a knee-capping or some such.  That's me though, my friends are merely place-holders so I look better as a person.

Well, I was gonna do the picture joke...  Matt killed it, but I'm doing it anyway.

There ya go old fart.

Welp, not ALL the figures I want of course, but many nonetheless.

I'd say Hem, Hermi, Bom, and Veers all are figures I'd love to see...  Veers especially if he's got the removable armor/helmet, belt, and officer's cap.  Excellent.

While I like the list, I think this is a list of figures that would rock if mixed in with a variety of other "types".  Army builders namely, but resculpts of main characters as well have their place I think... 

It's good, and I think all of the top 10 have a strong chance at plastic between 2005 and 2006.  :)
