Because the SW line is completely stillborn right now, I am getting more interested in vintage toys from my youth.

A couple of standouts I had forgotten about include Pulsar, the transparent man and most of the Fighting Furies line, particularly Peg-Leg and Hook.

There's a healthy selection of Shogun Warrior stuff too, though I really only want the 3 megasized ones based on the comic.

Nostalgia is powerfully addictive.

I read that review too and unfortunately I am one of the people mentioned who would buy this and then leave it boxed in its pristine state on display. So yah, does not do much to pump my tires. I would just as soon they retire this RC idea altogether and get back to making non-functional toys that I can never find in stores.  ;D

Is that the Clone Tank Gunner they have manning it?

Pretty cool, nice that they added the tank feature, because this has the potential to be a little boring.

Nothing else new pictured on the back photos, so it must be this and then the Mando Gunship as far as midsize stuff goes for 2011.

Ok, so technically it's not a "figure rumor" but EE has a new pre-listing up for a Mandalorian Gunship.  :o

No pictures or description, but based on my recollection this could be 1 of 2 different Mando ships. Either would be pretty cool as they are both interesting designs.

Hope to see more at SDCC!

Saw some Thor figures with the helmet today.  No sign of figures like the Destroyer or the Warriors Three, but they were shown on the cardback of the new Thors I spotted.

Which store???

Found more remnants of this wave at the TRU across town this morning, only Bom and Barriss. I missed Fordo AGAIN.  :(

This is getting a little frustrating.

I came across a new DCPI for this line over at RS: 087-06-2320

But none of my area stores have anything with that # in stock currently. They have them designated as Star Wars Rapid Strike vehicles, $16.99.

The Vintage Collection / Re: Target DPCI #s

Time to dust this puppy off. I saw an interesting blurb on RS last night that there may be a new DCPI for the Deluxe Figure and Vehicle sets, er...Class 1 Fleet Vehicles, er...Star Wars Rapid Strike vehicles. Whatever they are calling them now.

087-06-2320 - Star Wars Rapid Strike vehicles, $16.99.


I will be Jedi Mind Tricking this # today and will see what I can find out. Would be curious what others may come up with as well...good luck!

Slumpbuster Thursday....FINALLY found Wave 7 at Target after work. Of course, the one figure I wanted most (Fordo) was the only one missing from the pegs, but I snagged Bom, Barriss, and the RFT. No interest in Logray or Han, but I let a fellow collector know about the Han as he was looking for an opener so he was psyched.

The figures I snagged tonight are all awesome, I can see why people are saying this rivals Wave 3. Outstanding attention to detail.

Glad Target is finally getting some new stuff in too, they have been an utter wasteland around here for awhile now. Plus I have about ten more stores now I can start stalking for Fordo.  >:D

Dang, I will be down in the ATL just before this, probably only miss it by a day or so.

I am here on business now and there is a Coke Collectors convention going on in my hotel. You thought SW collectors were weird? Sheesh!

Saw Bridesmaids over the weekend with the wife. Not bad, probably the closest I will come to an actual "chick flick".

To me the funniest thing was just seeing the dude from the Tim & Eric Awesome show in a big time movie. Spaghet!

I checked FYE too and not only did they have no Star Wars toys whatsoever, the guy who worked there had never even heard of FYE selling SW stuff, and could not explain why stores in one state would have a completely different inventory than stores in another state.

Weird.

Our TRU gets their truck tomorrow but I am stuck in ATL still and will be unable to be there when they open, which pretty much means no new figures this week either.

I am coming up empty at Targets too.
