BigDumbWookie, are the Uruks in the TRU set the same as in the two big accessory sets (ballista and battering ram)?  The one I want most is the captain, I guess, with the white hand on his helm.  Thanks.

I also got it but my virus protection snagged it.  Still, I'm none too happy.

I agree with HMI.   Red, blue, periwrinkle, I don't care.

Yeah, of all the figs in the Wat Tambor case the Red BD lingers the most.  I've seen him plenty of times now, though I've only bought two.

Eowyn!!  Eowyn!!  ;D

I remember thinking when TTT came out how royally she got the shaft, and now here we're getting two great Eowyn figs at the same time.

And yeah, these people need to learn restraint.

I stopped buying anything entertainment wise at Wal Mart when they started dropping books because their content might refrence 9/11 - a romance novel, for example, that features an airliner in distress.  WTF?  They will carry those 'tribute' books with the big pics of images none of us need reminding of.  And they edit music.  When a chain store starts dictating terms to the arts, it's time to bail.

I'm still wait and see on the Emperor myself.  I like the idea of the moveable hood, but it's all about execution.

I also recieved my Wave 13 from Newforce yesterday.  Perfect condition, except my Darth Maul who I intended to leave carded was loose in the bubble and his lightsaber is bent in a lovely U shape.  And Yoda's hand fell off.  And so did Aalya's arm.  

After my Wave 15 debacle, where I recieved two Chewie's and no Hoth Han, I've decided I won't order online anymore.  Nothing against Rick - it's not his fault by any means.  It's Hasbro's.  But apparently the only to ensure getting what I want is to inspect it in a store before I buy it.  And if I don't find it, I don't find it.

I found all the available ROTK figs today at TRU with the exception of course of Eowyn and Bilbo.  I only bought Frodo because they cost $9 each, but I was impressed with all of them.   I'm looking forward to the rest.

I always liked the ARC Trooper, and my opinion of Anakin went up big time after seeing this.  Still not sure if I'll get him, though.  Yoda: sigh.

I mentioned something about being burnt out in another thread the other day... and I still am.  I think it's just too much of a good thing.  Adam Pawlus frequently vets a 'year off' idea for Hasbro, and the more I think about it, it makes sense to me.  Give us a little time to recharge the batteries.  Get excited again.

I also look at my collection and am kind of overwhelmed by it.  There's no space for anything new, no way to display any sizable portion of it, and it becomes more an issue of containing it than collecting it.
