...  Saved me at rip out actually had I gone that route.

Okay, no offense, but what in the heck did you just say?  ???

I was seriously considering picking up two more Ties as well, but I went the Bantha route instead.  One for me, the other for another local.  My order came to $56 - not a bad deal but now I'm thinking I should have gotten the Ties instead.  I had no idea their website still had them in stock, but I'm not going anywhere near that $45 price point anytime soon :-\

Keep me in mind for the next outting - maybe I'll trade/sell you one.  I already had one and probably don't need 3 of them - it was just too hard to pass up.  Wish I had seen that they had the bantha pack.   :P

I broke the habit right around AOTC and am glad I did! I do collect Vader's Carded. because he's been on practically every card. I figure if I have one version of a card in the collection do I need 500? a FF vader looks cooler than a FF Malikilli! Plus it's easier and creates a IMHO nicer display to focus on one or 2 characters carded (Vader, Yoda, R2 and you'd pretty much cover every line, from the original 12 to now, except special circumstances, like AOTC preview, ROTS preview, but you coudl get those astromechs... and then ALL loose.

Here is a US link to the shelves: http://www.ikea.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10103&storeId=12&langId=-1&productId=11638



I use these for my Marvel Legends and loose Star Wars - they work awesome.  What I did was use one vertically as shown, then I built a huge 6ft x 7ft frame using particle board and used the second detolf cabinet for glass shelves.  That gives me 6 six foot shelves (base of particle board, 4 sides of detolf #2 and the door from detolf #1.  Had to get a little creative, but it looks sweet all finished.

Clones aren't very sporting are they?   :-[

You're nuts!  ;D Seriously, that may be the best thing for you...on the other hand, 10 years down the road when you want to display something carded and its open, you'll be kicking yourself.  You can ALWAYS open your stuff later, but you can NEVER reseal your stuff - just remember that.   Personally, I open one of everything and keep a sealed version of everything, but that's a freaking expensive way to go about this, AND you have even less display space than if you did just one or the other, so who am I to give advice.  Good luck in your decision.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Target DPCI #s
« on: February 20, 2007, 05:05 PM »
I was hearing rumors of some price adjustments showing up in the Target computers, so I decided to check for myself and punch in the latest round of DPCI #s for 30th Anniversary stuff.  Here's an update on pricing plans for 2007:
 
30th Anniversary Basic Figures: 087-06-1990 - $6.99 same
30th Anniversary Darth Vader w/Coin Album: 087-06-0886 - $9.99 (lower price, was $11.99)
Order 66 2-packs 087-06-0884 - $9.99 (lower price, was $12.99)

## Please note that these are the prices here in MN and your local milage may vary a bit...


Very good news!  What target did you try this at?  The Knollwood store always has higher prices on the basic figs - I'm curious to try the DPCIs there and see if they're the same...  :-\

Got to the store too late to get anything good (Battle Droid 2pack and an Emperor - meh), but I did order Buy one Get one on the TRU Mega-sized TIE Fighters.  Gonna get reamed when that massive box shows up at the house...

Not sure how the west-side east-side breaks down for this group.  I'm in Golden Valley (still pissed that I missed living in a "New Hope" by just a mile), so that probably puts me in with the W's.   ;D

Oh, you're in my neck of the woods. I live in N Plymouth just off of 169.

The whole eas'side, wes'side thing is just a joke we have. We often curse the other side if one gets all the goodies before the other side does. And, I'm sure you've heard it before, we tend to look after each other for figures too, so be sure to list your wants in our "Who's in need" section of our MN forum.

Cute kids, Justin.

West Side Rulez!  What are we using for the border?  If this is basically St. Pual vs. Minneapolis, I had better put on my riot gear.  I'm actually doing pretty good on my wants right now - all caught up on Saga except for the WM wave, and I have those on the way via a Rebelscum trader.  I'm looking for the Yavin 4 Battle Pack that has been showing up at WM, probably another TIE Fighter, couple more Appo's maybe.  I'll go check out that section and see if there's anything I can help out with.  Thanks!

Yes, 'tis true.  I am a fellow Minnesotan who is also a relatively new father of twins.   :o 

My twins (2 boys) are 7.5 months old, born last summer (July).  We'll have to share "twins war stories" if you can make it out to one of our MN group meetings.     :)

 If you have questions, just let someone know and we'll do our best to point ya in the right direction!

Niiice.  Congrats on the boys!  Are they identical?  My not-so-little Sam & Adia are just about 5 months, so I'll be looking to you to shoot me any early warnings that I need to watch out for!  Definitely looking forward to sharing war stories & thanks for the welcome!

I live in the Twin Cities, Minnesota and am a relatively new father of Twins! 

Congrats on the twins. You aren't the only Minnesota guy who just had twins. Our fearless leader Jeff (who's also a mod on here so you'll see him on here a lot) just had twin boys last year (July?). From what it sounds like, you might be a "west-sider" too?

Big welcome. Hope to see you soon.

Thanks Vlad!  Wow, more twins.  What's in the MN water supply?  I have 4 co-workers who all either had or are about to have twins within the last year!

Newbie alert! ::) :P :o ;)

Hey Gang,

Long time Star Wars collector, first time on Jedi Defender!  Heard about this site from Jayson over at Yakface and decided to join up.  I've been collecting Star Wars since...well, I saw SW at age 4 and I suppose you could say my collection has been growing ever since.  I have LOTS of trade goodies, so hopefully you;ll see me around the trading forums shortly. 

What else...I live in the Twin Cities, Minnesota and am a relatively new father of Twins!  (my very own Luke and Leia I suppose ;D)  Looking forward to scoping out the site and getting to know some of you. 

JediJman (AKA Justin)
