Picked up a "Jabba the Hutt Action Playset" box w/ some stuff in it. When added to the stuff I already had I believe I am a hooka pipe away from a complete Jabba set with box.

After many times of having self control when I saw this, my love for Jaina finally made me cave today and the Kotobukiya Jaina Solo is a part of my collection now.

Picked up a "Generation 2 or 3" Polish Leia figure from a local guy on Craigslist yesterday.

Cool.  What do you think of it?

In it's own quirky way I really like it. Think it would be fun to get more but not for as much as people want for them. I did see the guy I got it from lowered his silver Snowtrooper from $50 to $40 but still way too much for me.

Picked up a Dianoga to throw in my Death Star box with the other random bits of the playset I actually own.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 1

The thing that's hard to predict is how robustly target will restock these. That 1 case per store model seems a little conservative. Our TRU has yet to stock these even.

Not that this is any sort of nationwide indicator, but two Targets near me that sold thru the 6" figures have restocked. The store closest to me has actually restocked twice since last Monday. So far a bunch of new releases from Hasbro (Black Series, GI Joe, Marvel) seem extremely limited both in-store and online, but with the holiday season coming up that should change soon.

The Target near me has sold three full sets minus one Luke as of yesterday morning.

My plan is to not "hunt" this but if I see it I can almost guarantee it's going home with me even at $60

Much to my chagrin I really like these.

I picked up the Luke, Sandtrooper, and the Maul. Passed on R2. Not sure any of them are worth $20 each, but R2 is just too little.

The Sandtrooper is gorgeous. I really like Luke other than the way his legs meet his torso. Maul is nice.

Ebayed a complete ESB Taun Taun (closed belly) w/ decent box. One flap is completely off but if you tuck the tab in its hard to tell. It also had the cardboard insert that keeps the taun taun from moving and the shape to the box.

BIN a Vintage Wampa w/ not so pretty box off ebay yesterday. Even had the wife's blessing since we just named our new albino baby rat "The Wampa".

Gentle Giant / Re: Jumbo Kenner Wampa
« on: July 21, 2013, 01:30 PM »
I just realized that Hasbro may have blown it with the 6 inch series. If they had done the kenner retro 6 inch line with cards like the gentle giant ones, I think many of us would have been way tempted. Especially if they essentially promised a full series of the entire vintage line. Then you throw in some droids figures and others as convention/retailer exclusives... I think it could have been gold.

Keep it down Dan. IF they did that divorce would be in line for me and my wife.

Added the ESB Turret/Probot Playset w/ okay shape box (missing a flap) to my collection.

Nice!  Local finds or Ebaying?  You're snagging some great stuff!

About half and half.
