Wanted something Blade Runner for a while now so I picked up a carded Ertl Rachael's Spinner. Package not in great shape, but it still displays nice.

Picked up a custom painted loose Droids C3PO (regular pull apart vintage painted to look Droids). I'd say very good version. Good paint job. Very close to original colors. Blue in the eyes is too big compared to the real thing, but it holds the place of the real thing well enough for me until (I fear "if" is the better word) I get an authentic one.

Paid $11 for it and just watched a loose authentic go for $200+ so I'm happy.

I have a feeling if I ever have one of these for real it's going to just be his torso and head or something like that.

Not very exciting, but picked up a custom printed Mungo Baobab Droids cardback. Okay printing job and straight corners, but the artwork is cool (Mungo knocking out a couple Stormtroopers) and my favorite part is the second wave of Droids figures are all shown on the back with a description of their character.

And it cost me all of 99 cents w/ free shipping.

Another one down, three to go.

Added a loose Droids R2D2 to the collection today. No saber. Sticker is a little dirty and where the two ends meet it is missing a small piece of the bottom corner of sticker. But I'm happy with him. Paid a little more than I wanted to, but I still had some paypal sale balance and in the same lot I got the R2 Droids coin in a holder as well as a 1986 PVC Spain Droids C3PO.

Now I just need a relatively cheap Droids C3PO, Tig Fromm and Sise Fromm and, unless I win the lottery I'm not counting Vlix, I will be done with the "non variations" vintage figures.

Accuse me of hyperbole, but I think "Community" will go down as one of the best comedies that no one watched.

I thought that was brilliant. Knowing the Community characters helps but certainly isn't needed.

If Washington really signs Desean Jackson, I just want to say that is going to be a fun car wreck to watch. And you deserve every part  of it Dan Snyder!

Not something I would usually splurge on, but had some money from selling some cards on ebay:

Bought a loose vintage 12 inch Lili Ledy Darth Vader. No saber or foil chest decal, but all other "clothes" with him and in nice shape.

Love this thing. Not because it is great looking, but it's just so funny looking. Looks like they took a vintage basic figure Vader head and enlarged it and then put it on a Ken Doll body that was painted black. and then given black clothes to wear with a cape.

I think I felt about last night's episode the same way I felt about the season. Great episode. Great character development.

Joe thing was awesome. Haven't reached that scene's equivalent in the comics yet. Thought the Rick (and others) coming to terms with the fact that it is ok to be able to do what they are capable of doing now in this world was great. It may feel evil, but if it's to protect the ones you love then it is Ok. Doesn't make them a monster.

All that being said, my gut feeling is not enough happened this season. Can't totally explain why I feel that, but I do. Would have liked a little more info on Terminus with all the build up to the finale too.

Received a lot of four "1988 Star Wars Action Figures" that I recently bought for $10 on ebay today.
POTF2 Biggs-my son can have that
POTF2 8D8-he can have that too
vintage long mouth Biker Scout-add him to my vintage army builders
and the reason I bought the lot, a vintage short mouth Biker Scout. If I have read up correctly it is the Lili Ledy version too.

I don't want to do this, and I won't even say it out loud, but.......


Or at least something related to him.

I know it's way too early and I'm not right, but I have my reasons for thinking it.

SLP Target has had three 6" on their three pegs for at least two weeks and no restock so I don't know that will work. Angers me greatly

Recently purchased and received today a loose Rebel Transport. I've always wanted one but just never have picked it up even though they aren't that pricey. I believe it is complete with all decals with the exception it only came with four backpacks and two gas masks (one of each would have been good enough for me). Even got the instructions that had been gnawed on by some sort of rodent.

Me too. I am going to need to become an expert on the blind bag fondling though.
