Does anyone have any comparison shots with the old bike? I'd like to see them side by side to see just how much of an improvement this new bike is over the POTF2 version.

Jedi Temple Archives had some pictures.

In between posts raving about how x-store is stepping it up because somewhere one outlet actually got new product in. If they lived where I do, they'd probably never have any store reports.

Mini-Bust of the Officer that takes Chewie's bowcaster in the Imperial Bunker on Endor...  It's a piece to accompany the Lt. Renz busts at Scum.  Get yours today in a dumpster somewhere near Dallas, I am told.  :-X

So Renz and repeat?  ;)

I'd like to think I'll quit next year, since this year has been not finding anything and struggling to rationalize buying stuff when I do. Thought about the online route, but $13 a figure...twice what I was paying per figure when I got back into Star Wars in 2005-2006. Am I getting twice the enjoyment? Not usually. Ordering a case? There's never that many figures in case to make that a realistic option. And there's the scarcity, I find myself not opening figures because who knows? That figure might be going for 3 times what I paid for it.  Very tempting to sell it and hope I find another one. And that's almost scalping (though I never did resell anything), which is not collecting, and not fun.  It's absurd.

 My collecting is dysfunctional at this point. And I'm only a casual collector. But it not possible to collect current Star Wars like that.

Michael Clarke Duncan has passed away at age 54.

Actor Michael Clarke Duncan dead at 54
Sept. 3, 2012, 5:53 PM EST
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Michael Clarke Duncan's fiancee says the Oscar nominee for "The Green Mile" has died while being hospitalized following a July heart attack.

Publicist Joy Fehily released a statement from Clarke's fiancee, the Rev. Omarosa Manigault, saying the 54-year-old actor died Monday morning in a Los Angeles hospital after nearly two months of treatment following the July 13 heart attack.

The 6-foot-5, 300 pound Duncan appeared in dozens of films, including such box office hits as "Armageddon," ''Planet of the Apes" and "Kung Fu Panda," Duncan had a handful of minor roles before "The Green Mile" brought him an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor.

The 1999 film, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, starred Tom Hanks as a corrections officer at a penitentiary in the 1930s. Duncan played John Coffey, a convicted murderer.

I like the fedora and pirate hats....they should include those with retail BADs.

But it's for the kids.  They love light-up figures and limited articulation.  ::)

Especially after the non-replaceable batteries run out.

Some of those are not valid with any other offer, if a sale counts as an offer.

After September, it's free, right?  :D

They probably reissue Office Duel Palpatine and/or deluxe switcho-change-o Sidious/Palpatine.

why is it that it seems to me that the single carded Maul looks way better than the BP Maul?

Cleaned up press image one vs. cleaned up press image two.

If you want Maul's Galactic Battle game card you ahve to buy the battle pack, since the game won't be around in 2013. A huge blow to everyone, no?  ;)

Maybe Hasbro is one selling them on Amazon. HA!

Quote from: McMetal
The Obi-Wan heads keep getting angrier and angrier looking.

Yeah, he's not known for being mad all the time. I think the same thing when I see Mickey Mouse figures/toys with this almost evil scowl. Is Mickey known for being an angry character?

That Lobot was too dated, but POTF 2-1B was somehow totally acceptable to reissue.

I thought the Battle Droid was a red version of the new exploding one shown at SDCC.

Some people are saying it looks as if Sandtrooper's gun is part of his arm. These photos are so doctored, its not clear. Odds are they are right.

Surely, a basic Phase 1 Clone Trooper is one of the first 12. Super Battle droid and/or Destroyer droid are likely.

I just paid a quarter for that R2 at a garage sale on saturday.'s popular and common as heck.

Everyone acts like the space program had huge popular support amongst the U.S. public. But it did not. We fortunate that Cold War was going on and the government pushed the Apollo Program as much as they did. Left up to an actual popular vote, Armstrong probably wouldn't have made history.
