I've never even heard of that thing, but it's a fascinating read. The Stretch Armstrong dude I want is the Green villain guy that sort of resembles the Abomination. Those are next to impossible to find on eBay too. I had him as a kid but it was lost over time.

I don't like that Pawn Stars show because I feel like the employees are always just out to screw people. They constantly try to lowball customers and then gloat about it afterwards.

I much prefer STORAGE WARS. I'll never forget the episode where that young gun dude cracked open box after box of super rare 70's and 80's action figures, including a carded Amanaman to drool over. As soon as I saw that I thought, damn that's what I want to do for a living!

Great start to the weekend...returned my HTS Gunship to Target for a ful cash refund, promptly drove over to TRU and picked up another full set of TCW Wave 3 for openers, fresh off the truck. I am officially done with this wave!

Gotta love closing out an entire wave, MOC and openers, in just over 24 hours with only a minimum of hassle and driving. I even picked up the latest set cheaper as I had a $5 off coupon that was just valid starting today.

I think this is a cool idea too, but at some point I think you are going to be stuck looking at some hefty prices, card condition notwithstanding. I mean, even Yakface on a crappy card is going to command a premium.

I am doing more or less the same thing with the DROIDS line right now and am facing the same eventuality. There is no way around getting gouged for a carded Fett or Sise Fromm, unfortunately.

I look forward to hearing more on your progress!

Saw this Wave restocked at TRU this morning, but was not sure what to look for in regards to the stormtrooper helmet. Couldn't tell which Skiff Guard neck it was either.

Picked up Eeth Koth, Comm. Colt, Barriss Offee, and the Riot Control Clone Trooper this morning at TRU for $8.99 each. They only had one of each, but there may have been more and someone beat me to them. Kind of doubt that though, this store restocks on Thursdays and I got there only an hour after opening.

They also had all of TVC Wave 6 but I am all set there.

All the cards on the new figures were decent, so I am good to go on the MOC side. I'd still like at least an opener of Barriss though because she's just that damn good.

Oh, also picked up a mintier boxed Droid Gunship last night at Target to replace my slightly dinged one from HTS.


I found them all this morning at a TRU as well, but at $9 a pop, I wish I had found them at Target instead.  :-\

It's a great wave but Barriss is easily my favorite. I may pass getting openers of the others but definitely not her. The outstanding likeness more than makes up for any articulation concerns, IMO.

No sign of Commander Jet in the case assortment either. Not that I expected him, but it would be cool if they snuck him in somehow in the next wave or two.

My wife would call Social Services on me if I tried to show those movies to my kids, and they are 3 and 5.

Maybe when they are 8 we would consider it.

RIP Jackie Cooper, from Little Rascals to Superman. Quite a career...

Frigging Caps are choking again...unbelievable. Why do all DC teams break your heart or just suck outright?

I'm sure there's a dedicated thread for the new RC Republic Fighter Tank, so feel free to merge this Mods. I looked but couldn't find it - sorry!

Am I crazy or is the scale of this thing suddenly way off? The new packaged photo seems to indicate this, as far as the relative positioning of the figure to the vehicle. The non-RC versions seem a bit more robust.

I wonder what they will actually charge for this thing because it seems smaller than the Hailfire Droid too.

Geez, I fly down to Atlanta for business for a couple of days, and look what happens! A slew of new images to set me salivating, especially that Cad Bane in Clone Disguise pic I have been waiting on forever. HELL YES!

The assault on Geonosis BP comes in as a close second though, they are really giving us a good variety of drones now. I love that.

I hope they cut the price on these too, but frankly I'm more irked by the constantly changing box dimensions. It really makes it a pain to store all those oddsize boxes in any sort of consistent manner.

Rot in Hell ************!

We did right by those poor people killed almost 10 years ago, justice was finally served, and not some courtroom or military tribunal BS.

Proud to be an American tonight. We did what nobody else could do. Scumbag was practically the Antichrist.

Unbelievably, this thing suddenly came back In Stock at Entertainment Earth. I bought one immediately, has been on my want list forever and these things are IMPOSSIBLE to find on eBay, much less at a decent price.

Huge, huge get for me. I'm stoked!

Uncle Gundy and his minty card have now officially joined my DROIDS posse. All hail!

Dude gets his own thread? Dayum, let the hype commence!

I can only see the tiny image on the front page here, since Sandtroopers does not want me to see their site while I am at work, damn them. But from first glance it looks freaking awesome.

I was not a huge fan of how he turned out on the show either, but the figure looks like a winner.
