It's too late for me, Sorlac. Turn back while you still can!  :)

Other Toy Lines / Re: ReAction Lines

There's a difference between 1978 and 1985 but like Jesse says it's pretty marginal. A figure that 'looks' like it belongs in the Kenner line would be good enough. I think the OT would be where all the action is (there are a couple dozen action figures right off that I think would be desirable) but I'd welcome the PT and CW as well.

I'm all about it. BTVS in particular. I'd love to see Hasbro tackle a vintage esque line like this for SW. I think there's a market for it and if history is any guide Hasbro will look to follow this trend in the next year or two.

I'd be all over something like this. I think it's cool and it reminds me a little of the vintage tomy (takara?) boxed figures. I have a friend in Japan helping me obtain a case of these.

I think it's a great decision and a signal that they are looking towards more of an OT feel and deliberately not a PT one.

Excellent shape. A little wear but pretty much the best boxes I've seen yet. And the ships are tucked inside with their cardboard inserts and have pretty much never been touched. Great find. But I need an intervention.

I don't know. Affleck has actually turned into an interesting filmmaker/actor. He's not my first choice but it all depends on the approach. It's really soon after the Nolan films though and that's a long shadow for anyone to stand in.

Very cool Jesse. I find the Canadian Kenner stuff so interesting. So I thought I was done buying for a long while then I happened upon these two excellent gems for $40 total and well, you know the rest:

I see this too and for the first time at Chicago Comic Con this year (only one I go to regularly) there was a real presence of vendors selling LEGO, loose and all, and this was really where the action was with the kids. I think the kid aspect has moved to LEGO in force. It's creative, imaginative, and endless.

Wow, that's great that you got it! It is truly an amazing piece. If I hadn't already found the TIE Bomber and Sandcrawler I definitely would have jumped at it. But I had a great haul and it's great to see it went to someone here at JD!

Took a day trip down to Des Moines yesterday, and stopped into Jays CD and Hobby, which if you're in Iowa, you should check out. After looking around and not seeing too much (usually score big here) I asked if they had anything else. Lo and behold they bring out this piece of treasure:

It's complete in the box with an unused sticket sheet. I know the instant I saw it I couldn't leave without it. I was afraid though it would be severely expensive. This is a piece I never expected to see let alone own. Turns out they wanted $300 for it, and I was able to walk away with it for $275. AMAZING find and the cap on a great month for SW collecting!

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 2

Very nice and agree completely on Han. Standout of the series so far.

I've been looking forward to Merumeru for a while so that's cool. But yeah. Definitely would rather see OT at this point. Same goes in the SL line where we're getting more PT/CW it seems. Time to let some of that go. Unless it's never before done CW like Satine or somebody. Then I'm all for it.  :)

Just an update as far as availability - my Target reloaded on these today. Another case worth.

Yeah they're pretty dead. The MM figures are not in the reset at Target and finding any of the newer pieces is probably going to be hard. Did see a Faora at Chicago Comic Con. $35.  Nope.
