^ Agreed. These will probably be on perpetual clearance like the TF Kreos. They look cool, but I also got the new Club mag today with a preview of the third wave of Retaliation figures, and they looked pretty neat, so they'll probably take up all my dough.

Hisstank put some pics on Facebook, and they look really cool. Not sure what to do yet, but I'll probably buy a few sets.

Got some more vintage Joes. The Tele-Viper, Psyche-Out, and iceberg are all perfect, but Zartan has a little more wear on the back than the seller indicated, but did have a complete and unbroken Swamp Skier, plus the backpack and mask were in great condition. Still a pretty good haul.  :)

Yeah, $350 is far and away more than I ever spent on one item, but hell, it's Fort Max.

And MP Prime is out already? Crap. I was going to hit TRU tomorrow looking for those Generations dudes (Springer and Wheelie) but I might end up with that.

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.
