Original Trilogy Collection / Re: 2004 NEW NEWS ON SANDCRAWLER
« on: November 2, 2004, 01:06 PM »
I pre-ordered mine through StarWarsShop.com using the $50 Gift Certificate from the March fiasco.

The total with shipping came to $17.94 ;)

I was pretty sure that my local comic shop couldn't beat that price, so I decided to pull the trigger on the SWS.com pre-order.  Now we wait until November to see if it ever gets released... and if I ever get it from them since their track record is so great.  ::)

I got my shipping notice today!   ;D

I hope this works out OK.  Given SWShop.com's spotty track record, I was a bit worried.  I got a great deal on the sandcrawler this way and I probably wouldn't have picked one up if not for the GC I had from the initial order fiasco...

Count me in for the "free" league then.

My 4-4 team is just about right as far as my Fantsasy Football skill level gets me every year.  I've never won, but I've never come in last as well.

So I was wondering the other day what the significance of this odd little difference between the Jawas was - one plastic sculpted version, and one "cloth" version...  When it struck me: This is yet another nod to the Vintage era.  Duh.  The "vinyl" caped Jawa, and the "regular" Jawa.  Cool!  No wonder they're making the Vinyl caped version so rare - it's mimicking the Vintage one's scarcity!

Another very cool display of collecting knowledge from the folks over at Medicom...   8)

HA!  Now Dale knows what it's like to have people not read HIS posts  Some Karma feedback from that Knight thread...  :P

Holy ****! Are my eyes seeing what they are seeing, the chase Jawa has what appears to be a Vinyl cape!  This is awesome & a very nice nod to the vinty line. Kudo's Medicom.

Either that, or you old guys don't read so well...

 :P

It's part my own detective work and some of the stuff I've read at HongKong and Japanese sites where ppl have opened their Master Cases.

I've been keeping track of all of the Lograys and Ion Rifle Jawas I see on eBay, Japan eBay (bidders), and both of the yahoo auction sites for Japan & Hong Kong.

Almost all the auctions state that with the Master Cases you will always end up with either Logray or Jawa, meaning that they are 1:96 if evenly split, but I keep seeing Logray much more than the Jawa being pulled.

No hard evidence yet (too early), but lots of circumstantial evidence pointing to a 1:192 Jawa and 1:48 Logray instead of both of them being 1:96.

Very interesting...

Seems like NewForce got in the wave 2.5 vOTC case and are shipping them now (I got my ship confirmation today... I totally forgot that I had ordered this case from them). 

It would seem that the vOTC case wave 2.5 with C-3PO is starting to finally hit some places again, as 3PO has turned up in stock at Amazon, NewForce, and OMGCNFO.com too, I wonder if EE (who adjusted the ship date to Nov) is getting their cases in as well?

Maybe they will start popping up at retail again too?

Well, after looking over the auctions, I decided to buy a set of 9 for $200...time will tell how stupid that is but most sellers are saying the Jawa is 1:96 which means its going to be a $100+ Kubrick by itself.  The Logray will be around $40-$50 in the end if its truly 1:48...so I think I talked myself into that I didn't just overspend by $70 :-\

And BBTS better not have full sets for sale this time either, or I will be PO'd >:(

I really considered buying one of those sets of 9 myself, but I decided to go the master case route for the "fun" of opening the boxes and being surprised.

Everything I'm reading indicates that it seems like 1out of every 4 Master Cases offers up a Jawa...  that would be 1/192 on the Jawa if it's true!!!  There are a lot more Logray out there compared to Jawa...  :-\

If so, that $200 for all nine is a great deal now...  those 1/192 Kubricks sell for that much alone!

Jeff

ps.
Scott, glad to sell ya an extra Jawa or two, we can work that out when my case gets here.   ;)

According to Amazon, my C-3POs are set to ship tonight via USPS (lol).

I am pretty sure it is going out in the mail tomorrow... we shall see what I actually end up with!

[fingers crossed]

Picked this set up today at TRU.

I really like the new paint job on the Kaduu, it looks much better than the Ep1 go-round.  The feathers add a lot to the sculpt too.

Always nice to add a few army builders too!

When you get that master case Jeff & with everyone one else that ordered one, keep tabs on the placement of the figures so can figure out where the chases are.  ;)

You caught me off guard on that Jeff, you started slowly & moved up. Hope you get good chases.  :)

 ;D 

Can do.

Well,

I bit the bullet.   :-X

Master Case of 48

I used up all my spare spending cash for November, but maybe I'll luck out with a good chase (Logray)...

So, I should end up with:
12x - Wicket (or 11x Wicket & 1x Logray)
12x - Jawa (or 11x Droid Caller Jawa & 1x Ion Rifle Jawa)
9x - Carbonite Block
4x - ATAT Driver
4x - Lando
4x - C-3PO
3x - Hibernation Sickness Han Solo

Anyone need some Ewoks or Jawas?   Carbonite Block?  Maybe a set of 6 or 7 (with Chase Han)? 

I'll have extras!  :P
