Wow. Bet they won't last too long either. Better make up my mind quick.

Never found these at Target when they came out a few years back, but I found a set on ebay for the right price and put them together this morning. They're wicked cool. :) Now to go around the house making 'whoosh' noises.

Picked up the Asian-exclusive Generations Cliffjumper and Swerve at TRU today. Missed Springer, so hopefully they restock.

I decided to complete my vintage collection recently, so I started by taking the first step into a larger world (POTF) with these two:



They're perfect, which is nice. Probably overpaid for Lando, but got Luke a little cheaper than I expected. Got three of the last 17; 14 to go.  :P Plus a few common figures that need replacing.

Wow. Almost $10 grand a piece.

It's pretty expensive, but I'm seriously considering it, about as seriously as Mattel would, for what it's worth.

I would rather buy something like a MOTUC Battle Ram or Land Shark or Slime Pit, but I get why the want to get this out the door before the line ends. It's far more iconic.

...and now the Maul BP is out of stock on the Target website, yet in stock at one of the stores I hit yesterday. I could just about puke. This is one of the worst-distributed exclusives I've ever seen.  :(

Congrats on the Jedi Luke!  :) I know how hard they are to find without an offer on the card. I only have one vintage carded figure, and an offerless 77-back Jedi Luke is it.

Made a run out-of-town today with Darby and Matt R. trying to score some swag, namely the K-mart 2-packs and the Maul BP. Didn't find either of those, but I did grab an AT-AT in the blue box and a V-19 Torrent, so it wasn't all bad.

Pretty disappointed in the distribution as well. I've forgotten how many figures I am behind, and the Maul BP is like non-existent around here, but I was still happy to grab an AT-AT.

Picked up the high-quality KO of Shockwave recently, and it arrived this week. Definitely better than an average KO, but still doesn't have the fit and finish that something from TakTom or Hasbro would have. Had to do some minor surgery on the left leg to get the foot to slide out, and there's a lot of mold flashes. I don't know if stuff like this is because it's such a flimsy design or what.

That said, it beats the hell out of paying $300 for a loose busted-up POS Shockwave on ebay.

It's on the main page. Now it says: Error: Invalid start/end news items.

I'm using Chrome, but it works fine in IE. Just on my end I guess.

I hate to be a bother, but there seems to be something wrong with the link to the fix tutorial on the main page.

I don't collect statues, but that is pretty neat.
