Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Deluxe Figures

Well, Hasbro's got some nicer pictures of the Deluxe wave 2 up now...

The pictures at Hasbro are a little clearer, and Vader's shows all the stuff he comes with (Helm, legs, etc).  I also like that the Vulture droid comes with a buzz droid, nice little add on.

Wow - thanks for clarifying, for some reason I thought the Yoda w/Cancell was a deluxe figure! The CargoBay site over at has this listed as a Deluxe Figure too - I guess that's where I got that idea from - but we all know that sometimes they have bad info...

Well, looks like you (and the Cargo Bay) were right.  Yoda with Can-cell is indeed a Deluxe figure according to the Hasbro site...

Looks like those early reports from Asia of him being in the case with the AT-RT were butt-ass wrong.

I see that Logary is still commanding $$$. A very tuff Kuby to get for those that are still looking for him.  :-\

1/96 secret Logray!

I was watching that one until it got into the $90 plus range...

Just going to bide m,y time and hope I snag one cheap someday.   ;)

Nataku, are the cases stackable?
I need to make room, and that would be awesome way of doing it.

Yep, definately stackable.

The top part of the case is slightly tapered at the top so that the base of the next case will fit snugly on top.

Yeah, I'm officially screwed too.

I had Wake Forest in the Final Four and Kansas in the Elite Eight.  :(

In fact, after going 24-8 in the first two days, I was royally screwed yesterday - I only picked 4 winners (Illinois, Arizona, Washington, Kentucky) and ended up with 6 losers (BC, Gonzaga, Wake, OK and Kansas & Syra who didn't even win the first round).

Ah well, it's always fun to try.  Maybe next year...

Looking forward to seeing the Speeder Bike set in one of those too.  Might talk me into picking those up myself.

Well, I got a chance to put the new display case on the SW shelf...

I like the way I can show off my Speeder Bike and Max Rebo sets (LOOSE  :-X) and still keep them nice and dust-free.  I think this little case will work out just fine...   :)

Ummm, I think you mean Series 4.  :P

Thank you, Mr. Nitpick.   ::)

Very cool display idea there Jeff. Looking forward to seeing the Speeder Bike set in one of those too. Might talk me into picking those up myself. How much was it?

It was called "Auto Show Case" and it was $5.99 plus tax at TRU.

I'm unsure what these Friends and Family Passes are. Please elaborate. :)

Damn kids and their short attention spans...  ::)

Official Star Wars Fan Club members who purchase 4-day badges for Celebration III during the pre-registration period online will receive 4 Friends & Family passes that they can use to share some member benefits with non-members.

Benefits include:
1) entrance to the Convention Center during the "fan club only" hour before the center opens to the rest of the public. Once inside the center members can enter anything that is open during the special hour with no additional identification
2) Entrance into the Fan Club Lounge
3) One access to other Fan Club benefits if any are announced.

That's what they are.  A way to get non-Fan Club Members into Fan Club "events".  Of course, so far the only "events" they've announced are the lounge and getting in early...

Well, I finally got a chance to open up my Max Rebo set.

clicky for larger image...

Medicom sure loves this line, it really shows what can happen when a company cares about the quality of the product.  The detail on Rebo's Ball Organ is fantastic.  This is such an incredible set and the boxed presentation is equally stunning.

I think these little guys have easily vaulted themselves into my top ten favorite figures... which should last until Series 3 and Vader and the Emperor come out.   :P

Also, today at TRU I picked up a nice car display case that I'll be using for my Rebo Band set.  I'll probably also bust out the Speeder Bike set and set them up inside there too:

Just a reminder since the passes are shipping now...

So, those of us who ARE in the Fan Club can try to help some of those who are NOT in the Fan Club with the passes.

Good thinking Jeff.  I was starting to get a little bummed that a few of our pals (and roommates) might get stuck in an entirely seperate line.  It's gonna be tough enough spending a couple hours in line to get in, so the more, the merrier!

Those of you who get the Fan Club "Friends and Family" tickets and don't need them, please donate them to the "Help a Brother Out" foundation.  Either myself or J-MAC will gladly accept your buddy tickets to re-distribute to the faithful. 

So, send me (or JediMAC) a PM if you are:

A.  interested in giving up your extra "Friends and Family" tickets to
B.  interested in receiving Fan Club "Friends and Family" tickets from a JD member

I'm going to open them numerically, starting with III-1 Anakin Skywalker.  I'll work my way up from there...

Some one please post a warning if you come across a picture of Greivous unmasked cause it's one picture I want to remain unspoiled about.

For Kevin:


Come on, clicky it, you know you want to...

Ew, that is one ugly case. 

Trying to take something that is smooth and rounded and forcing into a rectangular case?  Just looks icky to me. 

I hope that someone else comes up with a better design...  :-\

Yeah, Denver is 9-1 in their last 10 games!  :o

If they keep playing like that both the LAkers and the Wolves will have trouble catching them.

Even the Griz at #7 have been playing agrweat and winning lately...
