Go there and order your very own Darth Rosenberg.  :)

Would it have killed them to offer a mail-in? Here was a perfect opportunity to get unreleased stuff like Trophy OOM-9 and Obi-Wan in collector's hands. But, it was probably the idea of the same corporate sleazeball that thought collectors would absolutely LOVE to see action features on their Star Wars figures.

Speaking of Action Fleet, I have yet to find the wave with the Republic Gunship in it. God, this town just about sucks for new stuff sometimes.

Found some ROTK figures today. Eomer, Frodo, and Sam. There wasn't a repacked Aragorn there, but I have two of that figure anyway. I just need a carded one.

Still haven't found the Horse and Rider sets. I'm liking the Sharku and Warg set.

I was over at The GD again and they had some pics of a red-packaged GImli and Boromir, both of whom Toy Biz stated would not be coming out. They were both found in Austrailia.

Methinks they're mere customs, due to both of these figures being produced again. But, the pictures aren't all that great, so it's hard to tell.

I'm hoping I can manage to find Eowyn. I did find the PEW and Galadriel, so my luck should hold.

Haven't found Smeagol yet, but I got the Helm's Deep set yesterday, and it looks so neat all boxed up I can't bring myself to open it.

I'd like to see a wave based on the Episode I Naboo Royal Starship.
Padme (or would it be Sabe?) in an outfit Hasbro hasn't made yet.

Some resculpted Naboo guards, or even rereleased ones. Maybe different head sculpts like the Imperial Officer.

And Handmaidens in those funny orange gowns, cause we've been asking for those.

I think Hasbro woul probably avoid an entire Episode I-themed wave like the plague, but I'd like to see it.

I noticed that when I picked the figure up yesterday. Nice touch.

Looking up a figure's skirt probably says more about me than I care to know.

One thing I always wanted as a kid was a Transformers Starscream that was big enough to properly transform, yet be able to hold a Gi Joe-sized figure in the cockpit.

But, nowadays, I find myself wishing for awesome LOTR and Buffy figures done in the 3 3/4 inch scale to compliment my Star Wars figures. Aragorn and Luke hanging out, Leia and Buffy kicking a$$ and cracking one-liners, and Gimli and the Gammorean Guards enjoying malt beer and red meat off the bone in front of roaring fires. Life would be about perfect then.

And, after clearing a bunch of junk out, Target gets new stuff! I found Padme and Wat Tambor today. Yay!

Red SKull a chase figure? Damnation.
I did find Elektra today, but no Goliath to be found, which really doesn't suck, because I don't want that figure anyway.

For you fellow LOTR collectors: The two-packs are on clearance for something like $8.78. I wish they'd put the Horse/Rider sets on sale, because they've a motherload of Ringwraiths sets at my local Target.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Toys R Us FINALLY has NEW figures!

I also found new stuff at TRU today. I got the Yoda and Youngling packs as well as a red Battle Droid. The stuff on new cards was gone, because someone like a TRU employee beat me to 'em.

They also had some Clone Wars stuff, so I got a Clone pack. They even had a Marvel Legends Elektra.

I'll be damned. Must me a local thing.

Sorry to get any hopes up. :(

I mostly collect Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. That's about 60% of my toy dollars. The rest is divided among smaller lines I dig, like Marvel Legends and until recently, Masters of the Universe. I seem to think of MOTU as more of a chore than joy, so I've decided to back off that one for now.

I received a couple of Buffy figures in the mail today, (Buffy v1 and nice Angel) and I want more. Now, of course, the price on those will skyrocket, until Art Asylum picks up the license and delivers us from evil.
