I buy what I want. No real hard and fast rules I set for myself. Here's a little rundown on how modern SW toys have gotten me!

When SW stuff came back, I thought it was great! I was actually proud that my long-favored pop entertainment subject was back in stores. But I had no intention of collecting all the figures. I didn't even buy the first POTF2 figs. I recall looking for the Action Masters die-cast, but never finding them. I think the first thing that got me was MicroMachines. I picked up the movie-themed 3-packs of vehicles, then got sucked into the little figurines by the Jawas. I was stunned by quality of sculpting on such tiny figs! Long story short, that led to "collecting" most of the damned things. I figured I could collect collect the whole damn universe at that scale, and it wouldn't take up an awful lot of space. Then POTF2 Greedo came out...

Oh, man. It's the aliens that got me. He was my first, and Hammerhead and others followed. I lost interest in the micros, and started getting more and more action figs that I liked. I could finally get the heros and other main characters when the sculpts started getting good. I wasn't having any of that beefy Luke ****, or Monkey Face Leia rubbish.

Then came 12". :o The Tusken Raider was the first 12" to lure me into that web. I bought some of those, and after a while lost interest in the 3". Fruitless toy runs and other annoyances got old.

I was pretty much only paying attention to 12" for a while, when I got interested in getting some of the 3" OT aliens I'd missed or ignored in the past. I started poking around RS and then trading for stuff I wanted there. Then, all of a sudden, there all these great figures coming out: More OT aliens to add to the menagerie, like the current Jabba waves and the super duper clone trooper! Hell, that has even led to my first vehicle purchase, the command gunship. I've got to amass an army, right?

Power of the Force 2 / Re: Opinions on Rebo Band and Rancor

Yeah, I think the band figs are as nice as the current stuff. They're sculpted beautifully. The bummer is, of course, that Sy is based on the stupid CG cartoon from the SE, and not the old puppet. :( I don't even display her (or Yowzah). I like the Rodian, though. He's hilarious. ;D

The Rancor's pretty cool, too. As others mentioned, he does have problems standing. I have mine rearing up, so far back that he's kind of balanced. But he's still propped against my printer. The sculpt detail is nice. The "soft skin" is cool, and the flat look of it contrasts with the gloss paint they used inside the mouth so that the mouth actually looks all moist and mucousy like in the movie! ;D

I give 'em all the thumbs up, with extreme prejudice against SE CG characters. ;)

    Sgt Ook on RS. I like long walks on the beach, and Godiva chocolates. If I were elected Miss America, I bring would peace to the world through a campaign of smiling at strangers for no reason, and random acts of kindness! I love you ALL! :) :-*
