Star Wars Universe / Re: Disney to Purge Select EU
« on: April 25, 2014, 04:38 PM »
If you're a fan of the books, comics, etc, I can understand some frustrations with this. I don't know if a person can be too upset though; it's hardly the first time it's happened (original Marvel run, the Christmas special) and Lucas has maintained pretty much from the beginning, and with a blow horn during the prequels, that nothing outside of the films is cannon.

12" Figures / Re: Disney Exclusive 12" Electronic Figures

They look great. I'd be curious to see them in person. I would be more into a 3-PO and R2 maybe, but they all look fun.

I remember these at KMart right at the end when everything got blown out. I know we got some of the plush Ewoks along with some of the figures.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

Most of Obi-Wan's life is unaccounted for. The only reason for them to introduce a character like this is to explain where they came from, which suggests (if any of this is true) we'll see Ewan McGregor again as Obi-Wan, likely in a stand alone movie set in the gap between ROTS and ANH. I'd be all for that. I'm also all for an Obi-Wan who is not a cardboard cut-out of himself as we've discussed I think here before. If he had a child, or grandchildren, I don't think that diminishes him in any way. It may compound the tragedy of Obi-Wan Kenobi - does he forego what we can only speculate would have been a chance at a normal life, to adhere to his vows, to his duty to Luke? Does he even know about any offspring? I guess we'll find out. If any of it is true.

Great scores Nick. Sise and Tigg Fromm are moving up my list, especially now that I finished off R2 and 3-PO. Oh, and these guys...

Amazing score of all four of these guys together for a tremendous price. All are complete save for Boba, who is missing the cape and gun. Otherwise a HOF score. Never imagined I own an IG88 much less ever see one, but now I do!

Jason - Ka-Pow is well worth going to. Lots of great stuff to look at... Star Wars is hit and miss. He did have a boxed 12 inch Fett that was spectacular. I got my Sandcrawler there last fall. Higher priced than Quake for sure.

Some new pick ups:



Very quickly found a companion for 3PO for a great price. Also picked up carded unpunched EWOKS Logray there in the back. Along with him came a loose Logray and what I thought was a Comics Figura Wicket, but pretty sure now is Disney:

Not sure on the cards either but good deal on the Landspeeder. Looking at ebay $50 seems fair if they're good shape.

Got a long sought figure finally off ebay the other day:



Fair price, and he came with the non-Droids coin. I still have the Droids cartoon coin from the 3-PO I had as a kid (sadly did not survive many moves and puberty) so this was a nice addition. Together at last:

Was in Chicago over the weekend and along with the usual stops at Quake and now Ka-Pow, I stopped by Forever Young also. I hadn't been there before and wasn't sure if it still was, knowing she was selling the place. Turns out she is still there and I had a great haul. Got all this for just over $200:



A lot of great fun stuff, but I think the Spanish PVC Droids 3-PO was by far the coolest find. If I remember correctly this was Comic Figuras? Not sure. I think there was an R2 also but she didn't have him. Also loved the complete set of ROTJ candy dispensers with the candy still inside! I loved these as a kid.
