I caved and bought one on eBay for $50 shipped.  It's half of what I expected to pay and only about $15 more than it would have cost me in stores.

So that's done and I have a Miyagi with the Headband and T-1000 with Hole in the Head on their way.

Now I need to find a reasonably priced way to pick up:

- Masters of the Universe Prototypes
- Universal Monsters Haunted Crypt 4-pack
- SDCC T-1000 with the hook arms
- Terminator 2 T-800 Variant
- Terminator 2 Sarah Connor Variant
- Japanese Exclusive Marty McFly with Einsten

This line is getting tougher and tougher to collect...

It'll be a busy start to 2017 for sure - Disney has 3 big sequels in a six week span...

05-05-2017 - Guardians of the Galaxy 2
05-26-2017 - Episode 8
06-16-2017 - Toy Story 4

That doesn't seem smart to me, but what do I know.  Wouldn't you want to stagger that a bit more?

I heard they were showing up, so I stopped by today and nada.  I'm going by TRU again on Friday, so fingers crossed.  The good news is that either way, eBay prices are dropping.

I'm not saying vintage carded isn't gorgeous, or fun, or whatever... I'm just saying it has a shelf-life and I wouldn't be willing to shell out tens of thousands of dollars for something that eventually, one way or the other, is going to pop open and lose almost all of its value.

I'll say the same thing I always say... The only difference between that $27,000 Fett and a $35 Fett is a deteriorating layer of 30 year old glue.

Collecting carded, especially at the high end simply doesn't make sense to me.

TIE Interceptor goes live at 6:00 CST.

6" Luke and Wampa is on the schedule now too...

All the stuff I bought last week.  Naturally.

6" Han and Taun Taun is coming up at 4:00.

That's Central Time I assume since I'm reading it off of my page...

Just snagged a 6" Han and a Mosep.  Kind of crazy though that really great deals right now are letting us buy figures at $18 and $11 respectively.   :-\

EDIT:  Also just managed to get Leia through the wait list... Just need Han and Threepio now to finish this wave.

Also looks like Thorn is on the clock for 2:00.

Again... How are machine gun toting villains, monsters, or steroid using wrestlers better toys for children than this?

I want the bloody jaws set in the worst way... But I'm not spending $100+ for it... I hate exclusives.

I'd be tempted to try and make room for it, if it was an OT TIE.

I figured it's a PR thing to keep it fresh.  You mention something as the 7th movie in a series and it's that much tougher to make it seem new and exciting, even if excitement is completely built into this one.

I wish Abrams was just doing the whole trilogy...

Disney spent a lot of money, so they're expecting to make a lot of money... I honestly think we're about to see Star Wars go from a special thing that you can't wait for, to a watered down annual event that gets stale pretty quickly. 

Five movies have already been announced and the directors are all over the map.  I just hope that someone is maintaining a vision of how this is all going to come together or stay consistent, and I hope that at least 7-8-9 meets expectations, even if the spin-offs are spin-offy.
