Other Toy Lines / Re: 2011: What Are You Collecting?

Maybe this will be the year I bite the bullet and go all-out on the Droids/Ewoks lines. 

Damn, they got me. I bit the bullet and decided to go for a carded EWOKS collection. I'm halfway there after this weekend. Still debating a loose/carded DROIDS collection. Most of them are still fairly affordable, but it has to be all or nothing...eesh.

I also finally tracked down the SDCC exclusive Metalocalypse figures...these have all but disappeared even from eBay.

Have there been any more sightings of this set? I was thinking about putting in an order for him at EE - paying $18.99 for him is better than not having him at all...  :-\

Nope, this thing is totally MIA, no one outside of Canada has seen any for weeks if not months now. I do not think they will carry it forward with any of the new waves either. I have been waiting forever for it to come back into stock at EE, BBTS, etc but they cannot seem to restock it anymore.

I finally gave up this weekend and bought a ridiculously overpriced one off eBay. I have been resisting this but I just don't see myself ever finding this and I am tired of looking.

Damn, I missed it completely. I have a hard time remembering to watch that show live. Wish there wasn't such a delay in putting them On-Demand.

Has anyone bought the DVD of Season 1? Was the unaired pilot funny?

Upgraded my vintage stash with a much nicer X-Wing complete with original box. The one I had from back in the day was not showing the years well. Think this completes any upgrades for stuff I already own.

Years ago, there was a Target and a TRU that never stocked.  I walked through both of them three times a week, twice a day on the way to and from Grad school.

Eventually, I got so fed up, I started carrying little printed out cards I made that said "Please Stock The Star Wars Pegs," and on the back I had a list of assortments that were currrent.  I would hang these cards right on the pegs!

LOL, I've done that too...never thought to include the current case assortments though, that's a good idea. It did seem to work at the Target I was stalking at that time though.

Playing "musical pegs" with the figures is probably an exercise in futility, but it IS sort of an amusing game.

Chewie, I loved your story about this. = Winning!

Well, I've officially succumbed to the Dark Side...bought my first carded EWOKS figures, Lady & King Gorneesh. God help me.

At least I only have four left to worry about, and they are not brutally expensive if you're not terribly choosy about the card condition, which I am not.

I could have gone the loose route but it's not that much more to go carded so I figured what the hell.

For DROIDS, I think carded is probably out. A few of those are crazy high.

I finally picked up the drum/seat for the Ewok Battle Wagon which I have been looking for forever. Now I just need the ladder and I am done with that set.

Starting to window shop for At-At's again too...man, those thing have gone up noticeably in price even in the past few months.

They even put those black spacers on the pegs to keep the figures out at the front of the peg...  Like that somehow makes it look more full or something.

I HATE that practice...it's lazy, half-assed and deceptive. Walk on back to the stockroom and pull a fresh case to re-stock the pegs already. If you don't have any in the back, order more. Just don't try to fake like your pegs are all filled, with only 1-2 figures deep at each peg. That's weak sauce.

I make it a regular habit now of re-arranging all the figures from each line into the fewest # of pegs possible, so there is plenty of available space for new figures to be put out.

The sad thing is, we've seen (almost) nothing of what would follow this wave in the TCW line, so for all we know they will just take a few months off until SDCC as in the past. That pushes Jet back even further into limbo.

I'd love to see a whole "lost" wave for this summer with Jet, Hondo, Aayla, and even the Cad Bane in Disguise figure. How sweet would that be?

3268
Case assortments and updated photos are available for this wave at EE. Commander Jet remains MIA.  :(

I don't recall what exactly the postcards said, but something to the effect that they were backordered. There was no mention of not being able to fill the existing orders to my knowledge.
