TRU Jedi Set 3 and 4 (junky though they may be), were both due mid-November, probably in time for the Post-Thanksgiving shopping crunch.

I think had a 11/15 date on them or something...
edit: just checked and they are listed as available 11/20 at, so yeah, just in time for Thanksgiving crunch


I've got 3:  1 carded, 2 loose.

My carded one is hanging on the OTC Wall of Figures, the two loose ones are flanking my FF Rem Helmet Vader as he overlooks my Bounty Hunters.

I think I'll stick with 2 for now and hope for a cheaper re-release army builder pack or something.  $10 each is just too much IMHO for massive army-building.  Buying anything more than the 3 that I have will eat too much into my budget, and then I'd have to start passing things up. :(

In fact, even buying 3 figures for $30 is starting to get excessive in my book...  :-\

Here's the stuff that is still on my "needs" list that I will probably find in 2004:

* 2005 Cantina Wave (due Nov. from EE)
* OTC-38 Imperial Trooper (x2)
* TRU Jedi Scene 3 and 4

That's about it.  I have caught up with my vOTC and I only need the Scan trooper for OTC.  I managed to find all the other stuff that I wanted, but I did pass on a lot of stuff this year thanks to all the re-hashes (Y-Wing, Vader's TIE, OTC re-hash TIE and X-Wing and more).

I guess I do have some other stuff I am tracking on the needs list, but these items probably won't show up before the end of the year:

* GH Tatooine Wave (Jedi Luke/Gam Guard, Skiff Lando/Nikto, Jawa/Tusken)
* Target Figure w/Cup Wave 2 (Han, Yoda, Fett)
* Star Tours Wave 4

I doubt that stuff will hit before Christmas though...

Yeah, if this drags on much longer it will only make things worse around here... I agree with ya Scott and Brian.  Hard to believe that we are basically right back where we were in 2000, only this time it's Ohio not Florida.

I hope in 2008 we go back to one of those elections where one guy gets his ass handed to him and there is NO question who's the boss (a-la Reagan 1984).  One of those elections where by 8pm Pacific one guy is ready to concede becuase he's losing by 200 electoral votes.

* 4 Back to the Future
* SW Series 1 (no chases)
* SW Series 2 (with Indy chase, I still need to pick up White Pad trooper from my pal)
* Muppets Series 1

I pre-ordered mine through 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 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'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...

Just got shipping confirmation.  My master case should be here early next week!   ;D

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 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 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!


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