Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Should I...

I have to agree with the group.  I'd let it go.  I don't think engaging them in the way you suggest will be positive.  We have a nice little community here, and I'd be glad just for that.

CC, so sorry to hear about your mom.  But she sounds like a woman of great strength, so I'm sure both of you will be fine.  Best wishes.

This topic is so interesting to me because I realized in reading it I never really thought of myself as having heroes.  I don't know if that's good or bad.  I certainly did as a child.  George Lucas was one, simply because he made me want to make movies.  Astronauts.  The Challenger crew.  

My grandfather is one of my heroes.  I think the biggest hero in my life now is my cousin Kim.  She's a bedrock of joy and passion for life despite all the things that would otherwise impede her.  She's a bright shining light in an often dark world and she makes me smile.  That's heroic.

'Hi Robb!'

And welcome.  My name is Darb, and I am also a SW addict.  Whenever you need someone to go to a meeting with you (say, at TRU), give me a ring.   ;D

Welcome, Matt!   ;D  Hey that sounds familiar... great Vader collection.  Really impressive, you should be proud.

This is so tough... Jesse has it right.  There's no clear winner.  They're all good.   For me, it's a tie between Boba Fett, FX-7, Bespin Han, and Throne Room Amidala.

I never saw the clean in a store.  Or anywhere else for that matter.  I have two dirty ones, but I hope they make the upcoming troop builder pack all clean.

I agree Dustrho - the vintage Scout is the best of the line.  I still remember getting my five dollar allowance for the month of June in '83 and rushing out to K-Mart to get him!   ;D

All of you guys have detailed what's wrong with the current situation better than I could, so I'll just say that from a retail point of view, the SW ship has been sinking since '98.  This pattern of glut, Hasbro dudes coming to the stores and clearing them out for new product has happened how many times now?

And who's fault is that?  Hasbro does terrific things with SW - I'm so glad they're making SW toys - but their production management (case assortments, over-production) is puzzling.  Now, it would have killed any other line by now.  These retail fluctuations have been going on for five years, and maybe Hasbro has found an acceptable level of comfort with them.

Me, I just learned to buy online.

I agree with MisterPL.  I'm on your side about the trading/selling issue, Jango Fettish, but the banner may have been a bit much...

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What else do you collect?

All but Spike.   :(

I can't afford to pay $75 for him on Ebay, so... distribution here is awful.  I wish someone else would get the license.  MAC is a truly awful company.  The figures (such as they are) are nice, but their PR leaves a lot to be desired.

I used to haunt RS quite a bit, but for many of the reasons already stated here, I don't much anymore.  Let's just say I'm oh so glad I found this place.

My main other haunts would be:

I also lurk around GH, TheForce.Net,, the Simpon's Collector Sector, some others.  

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: I want a new TF Droid Starfighter!

I'd like one of these, too.  Although if we ever get another, I have a feeling it will be the walking one from E1 thrown in a TRU 4 pack of some kind or another.

If Hasbro wanted to do a Pod Race Hanger type of set, they could probably kit bash a Nikto Pod Mechanic, or an Ishi Tib one, a Twilek massuess, something like that.   ;D

My Nexu is also in good shape, Jesse.  Sorry to hear about yours.  I would be very upset.   >:(
