The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: 2010 "Vintage" Collection Wave 1

Not excited by any of these.

Me either. It amazes me how they utterly fail to capture the likeness of the characters from the films. None of those 4 looks anything like the actors in question.

Articulation and detail are great, but give me a well-sculpted face and proportionally accurate body parts. Not Popeye arms like that crappy Veers.

Not finding these dirty bastages ANYWHERE...seven Walmarts in this town and none of them have re-stocked since X-Mas.  >:(

No new purchases this week, but I did finally receive my vintage Ackbar variants in the mail from the UK. Postmark date was 12/23...WTF?

They're great...I've got a nice little gang of five now, each with unique paint apps. The 4 new addition are all from Taiwan.

Also got my replacement carboard backdrop for the Cantina playset...looks awesome, a steal for $10.

Still waiting on Warok, Carbonite Han, Univisor Snowtrooper Variant, and my battle damaged TIE.  ;D

Yeah, but some of us are strictly carded collectors, and don't want to maim our minty packaging.  ;D

I probably have 5 actually, courtesy of Willrow, Zuckuss, Rumsleg and my duplicate Cad Bane and Luminara.

Hot damn!

Thanks, I have noted this as well. However, since STL is a lot further east than Cali, I am hopeful these could actually show up any day.

Now the new TCW figure waves that have been spotted in Cali, THOSE will probably take awhile to get here. Rats!

With me, it's not the gas I need to conserve, it's the time. I have such limited windows for hunting now, any saved effort is a plus.

The AT-RT wave has hit the St. Louis area the past couple days (Wal-Marts only so far).

To quote the great movie "Used Cars": "You gotta be jacking me!"  ;D

That's super mega-awesome. I hit a couple up at lunch today but no signs around here yet. Reason to keep looking though!

So I read this morning on RS that there's a Tank Gunner Paint App Variant - one with a Green painted Triangle on front and one with a plain gold triangle. I had to run home at lunch to see what I had - green one. So after a few frantic stops I managed to score the Gold variant at TRU. Last one on the pegs...nice.

 ;D

It gets weirder. Upon closer inspection, Farmboy Luke's neck is actually two-tone - the back half is in the normal pink and the front half is in the pale yellow which matches the hands.

Was this an ill-advised attempt at a custom paint job? Factory reject?

Not sure, but I'm sort of tempted to keep him just out of the sheer weirdness.

I went off on another bender this weekend, far exceeding my vintage budget. I did snag the Univisor Snowtrooper Variant, plus the POTF Han w/Carbonite Block and Warok. I just can't stop myself!

So I got my Brown Hair Farmboy Luke in the mail today and I smell a rat. Help me out here...

The face coloring does not match the skin coloring of the neck or hands AT ALL. It's not even close...the face is pink and the other parts are like a pale yellow. Both pieces, independent of each other, appear to be authentic. But they clearly do not match. Is this typical of some kind of foreign knock-off, or did someone pull some kind of fishy head swap?

I've seen other versions where everything matched and they looked much better. I'm thinking I should probably try for a return...

When are the other 2 new TLC BP's going to be released?

I'm of the opinion that anything Hasbro shows off at SDCC really should be released at retail outlets BEFORE Toy Fair. I don't think they're going to make it with the Aayla/Hondo wave, or that EU TLC wave either.

How many Whorms ya need? I saw about 20 last night... ;)

One of the local Wally's has a massive supply of the recent TCW waves, just nothing new.

Whatever, just more $$$ for my vintage fix...
