Got some Jawa droid factory parts free at a yard sale today. Most of the legs have ripped pegs, sadly, the parts don't hold up well in that regard.  There were actually hoses, though.

A pegless R5-D4 leg and an R2 leg, too...from the actual figures.

They'd release the exact same figure from  the Legacy collection, but with the accessory from the POTF Millenium Falcon carrying case version....and then say it was a mix up and never correct it.

It's way too easy to be pessimistic these days.  :P

Saw the one Ewok set at TRU today and skipped it due to gash like mold flaws on Teebo's chest.  I hate when that happens. But at $40, I am gonna be that picky and wait for the next shipment (which won't happened...I missed the boat... :( )

Pilots set looks worse in person.

Defend Kamino battlepack at TJ Maxx for $13. They are still shipping those 2011 battle packs. Had 2 Geonosis ones, as well. And some more of the AOTC vintage wave.

Marshalls had the Sentinel with Wolverine for $30. If any one is looking for those.

I like how some Ebay sellers want $20 to $30 for Blitz by himself, but you can get  the battle pack for probably that or less than that. I guess they never care if they sell anything or hope a sucker comes along...years later. Me, when I sell stuff I usually want it gone. Same with craigslist. I sold some Monster High dolls my dad got in a  lot at an auction for pretty cheap last Xmas. Maybe too cheap...but they sold and were gone. I had money. All these bozos who never sell their junk because they think its gold....they probably give up and throw it away.

Yard sale finds: Bunch of incomplete junked ships. A CW Jabba with no arms. Homing Spider Droid with no leg tops or weapons. TRU Hailfire with no weapons. TRU Imperial V-Wing with no missiles or wings. Utapau Obi-Wan starfighter with no missiles or canopy...Grievous fighter without...well, you get the idea. I think some kid was told he had to sell his SW stuff and made sure everything was useless!  :P

Funeral Padme is gonna be a  hard sell.

Hasbro will release that battle pack Nightsister and will say good enough as far as Talzin is concerned. You know they will. LOOK INTO YOUR HEART, YOU KNOW IT TO BE TRUE.

Mandalorian Transport 2!

Hey, Hasbro try leading 2013 with new molds and save the recycled junk for the refreshes that never make it to stores.

TRU $5 off anything coupon - no minimum purchase

print one in Google Chrome, and one in IE and you will get two coupons each with unique barcodes

Promo no longer available. I waited too long. After all that getting my Java updated and crap.

I'm always perplexed with Hasbro produces such a great figure and then makes it limited.

Then tells us how new tooling costs limits what they can do.

I consider the remakes of main characters inevitable, so I rarely vote for them. I'd want unmade background characters over redos of most minor characters, though I'd get Ree Yees and Yak Face redos if they made them. I haven't gotten any modern Imperial Dignitaries, so while I see the desire to make Slim Aloo, I doubt I'd go out my way to get him.

Dash Rendar is sooo 90's. I wouldn't say I'd pass on a new one, if they bring back comic packs and stick him with his droid or whoever.

What Has Happened To Teebo In The Toys R Us Ewok Pack?

No new Teebo head sculpt? Logray repaint?!

Touching on some of these others....

-Chewbacca - I agree, the VOTC & Early Bird versions knocked it out of the park with Chewie.  If we're going to get scene specific with our favorite Wookiee, there are three jailbird versions left that I can think of:  Death Star prisoner Chewbacca, Cloud City Chewie with manacles & C-3PO, and a Jabba's palace prisoner Chewie.

They've gotten Boushh's bounty Chewbacca wrong twice now. In ROTJ, the collar is quite visible, not buried under fur like the toy versions.

The only thing I know is that they've been available from that same seller for well over a year now. There's red striped ones, too. Did those see retail release? I remember hearing talk of bootleg troopers (as opposed to factory extras or whatever), but the seller's other stuff looks like actual production items.

I've never bought anything from that seller.

No. Those people will have all quit the hobby they claim they are going to.  It was all about retro packaging!

Maybe, to all that.

Funny thing, the kid had cardboard vehicles he made, too.

Also those early Clone Wars clones (1st head sculpt) with green stripes that IIRC, were only found on eBay. Star Wars Clone Wars Grey Clone Trooper Green

Could be overseas...he sure sounded American.

Dropship...keep forgetting they made it.

I watched some stop motion video on youtube some kid made recently, there was the dropship! I've never seen one, how'd this kid get it?
