I picked up the Battle Damaged TIE fighter last night...complete w/original box. I normally eschew the auctions with original packaging as it tends to drive the price up, but this one was surprisingly affordable. ($35) Looks pretty damn minty too.

Lots of stuff I have my eyes on this week too...could be a big week for vintage scores.

Wow, battle game cards...that really excites me NOT.

I really would have preferred they gone the Build A Clone route....

Why do I have to join that frigging site just to look at their stupid pictures? That is weak as hell.

Shareware dudes, spread the love.

Well done, sir. That is a fine looking collection. Do you have other variants displayed separately? I notice Large Head Han in the picture and Yellow Hair Farmboy Luke...

I got my Vader TIE in the mail today but the wings are not as good as I'd hoped. Looks like I may be in the market for these again.

Picked up a Matchstick tonight at WM.  First time I've seen him at retail.  They had quite a few waves of whatever wave he's from.

Yeah, I have only seen him twice - both weeks ago. I'm glad I snagged him right away because I have seen a LOT of other figs from this Wave since then but no more Matchsticks. I can't figure out why some random clone is so popular.

I want to see the Twilight, Republic Shuttle, Separatist SuperTank, or some other big vehicle in the TCW line that isn't a Y-Wing or Gunship re-paint.

If TLC is getting an AT-AT, Hasbro damn sure better have something comparable up their sleeves for the animated line.

I scored a minty POTF Barada last night, but it does not include the collector's coin, so I am going to have to hunt that down separately. (dammit) It is hard to find auctions on eBay where the coins are included. Of course, when I actually tried buying them separately, EVERY auction for those figures seemed to include the coins. So I really can't win.

Seems like a pointless business model to me. Anybody liable to stumble across that site on the internet would do much better just listing their stuff on eBay.

I don't think they're likely to get much action from the octogenarian set.

These latest pics look even better than the first batch. (Why does a strategy droid need a pistol though?)

I just wish it wasn't going to be 3 more months before we see these in stores...

Yep, it was that local shop again. He's also carrying some nice mint paint variants for some of the figures too, like the rebel soldier, dengar and a few more that I can't remember.

If there was a shop like that here, I would LIVE there.

About how much did the VC Jawa set you back? $300 ballpark or better/worse?

That's an awesome score.

Scored Vader's TIE fighter last night for a decent price. I really only needed the wings but I went for the whole thing since the electronics were in 100% working order and that is somewhat rare. That's the last ANH vehicle I needed, except for some replacement TIE parts and maybe an upgrade X-wing. (Mine is shedding stickers badly)

I really am going all out to complete the vintage collection this year, outside of the super-pricey variants at least. As of Jan 1st I have exactly 30 items on my "short-list" to round out my vintage line. (11 figs, 8 vehicles, 9 playsets and 2 mini-rigs) I figure it is realistic to average an item per week (until I get down to the really expensive stuff at least - Yakface, Cloud City, etc) so I am aiming for a September close-out target.

Here's to getting the best of my completism in 2010!

Sigh...$100 would be a perfect price point for a large scale Separatist shuttle for the TCW line, or the Twilight.

It sure will be fun when all the vintage purist guys see those 2010/2011 prequel movie waves using their hallowed cardback.   :-X

We are NOT amused.

So, here's hoping everyone got their orders from Toyrocket:

Bump for 2010; according to all sources this Wave should be out now.

Seems like an opportune time to start my first "WHERE THE F ARE THE NEW TOYS" rant of the year.  ;D

This Wave has been around since SDCC, so I figure they may as well go ahead and put 'em out. Last new TCW wave was what, 3-4 MONTHS ago? (!)

I'm officially jonesing for new swag.
