I've completely given up on WM at this point.  I've ranted in other threads about how hard it is to find new stuff there.  DP - I love your comments on the WM stocking trends!!  Made me laugh you did.   :)

TRU?  Many have closed their doors where I live and the only one that's close is backlogged with 30-50 ROTS figs and caked with the Hoth wave.  I'm sure with their upcomming BOGO sale will result in more of the same wave as the pic suggests.

I get most of my stuff from Target.  I'm an early bird hunter so I have the pleasure of competing with the HW guys.  I've never had to run to beat them to the stuff - don't need toys that bad.  Most of the guys have this "first come first served" thing though which is nice.

KB?  Don't even think there's any left in my entire state.

K-Mart.  K what?

He was 17.  I was just about to start my freshman year in high school and he was going to be a senior.  First time we would have ever been at the same school at the same time.

Casefresh has listings for the Star Destroyer Executor, Sandcrawler, B-Wing, and an UGH Windu Fighter.  Haven't heard these mentioned before.

I'll get a bit more serious here and say life.....My older brother died in a car accident less than 1/2 mile from home when I was 14.   :'(

Thanks.  I'm a dumbass for not looking more closely.  :-\

What are the differences in the variants that Scum has been reporting on?  What's so different about the packagaing, base, and hologram fig?  The three that I have are packed away (already) so I can't compare.

Scum has pics of two new 3" ships, plus an "all empire" themed giftset with a raw Death Star.  This set looks quite nice compared to the last three.  Would anybody know if WM plans to pick this thing up as an exclusive again??  I would so not be happy...

These cases are available through eBay as well - I ordered a few to try them out.

So how well do they fit??  Or have you not received them yet....Inquiring Fetts want to know.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Long Term Storage Questions
« on: April 4, 2006, 10:36 AM »
I have no room where I'm currently living and I had both options of putting my entire collection in the attic or the basement.  With the elements in mind, there was no way I wanted to jepardize everything.  I have all my carded figs in Star Cases too, but I put them all in huge thick flower boxes - I heard issues about the "breathing" thing so I took this route.

If you have the space in your home, then by all means it should be taken advantage of, but I'm leary of the attic/basement issues - insects, rodents, heat, humidity.  I since decided to go the expensive route by putting everything in a climate controlled storage unit to make sure everything stays nice and dry.  I take a peek into various boxes every few months or so and so far there's been no problems - not that I'd see one arising.

My stuff has been in storage for over a year now. I won't boast about the size of my collection, but everything has been nice and kosher.  ;)

Just my 2 cents...

WM would have to get figures first to actually have a price to fluctuate. :)  I'm in awe that almost all of you have WM's selling figures, and Pittsburgh WM's don't have pegs for them...  I'm dead serious.  I don't know what happened.

Ahh, the days of shopping at WM and actually being able to find new SW figs.  I'd have to say for me, a freak encounter with the Hoth wave was the last that I found.  Prior to that was back when I found the E2 preview figs.

I hope that WM pulls a price cut, maybe that's what's been holding them off from putting new stock out?  At least here in the Twin Cities area.

I'm 28 as well and I still remember watching them on the Tracy Ulman show.  Loved it even though they looked pretty fugly back in the day compared to now.  I hardly watch the show as much as I would like, but I still get a kick out of it everytime I get around to watch.  Gotta love those Halloween specials too  ;D

Bring on the movie I say!!  Dare I ask if there's any computer animation in it?

Peter Jackson has made Director's Cuts of all his movies, sans "Meet the Feebles". All of which really didn't do much for the movies, except "Heavenly Creatures", which got a little racier, and "Braindead/Dead Alive", and those were distributor cuts. "The Frighteners" is up in the air.

Had no idea that PJ directed The Frightners - not that I paid attention to anyway.  Twas an oddball movie, but I always liked it for some reason.  Didn't they just release a SE of the movie a few months back?
