Woot!  These 2 big guys are going to flank my vintage army.  Plus I'm up to 5 of the Legends ones for my modern Hoth diorama.

Congrats on the new purchase Rob, it looks pretty sharp.

I'm pretty proud of our new vehicle purchase, a 2013 GMC Sierra.  The cool thing is it's a hybrid, so it actually gets better gas mileage than my previous SUV (Hyundai Veracruz).  We're going camping next week, so the timing couldn't be better.

I added the 12" Luke and Leia, pretty clean and complete except for Luke missing his grappling hook.



And here's the 6 I have:

I just put in a preorder for 2 of these from BBTS, I'm going to display them with my Kenner army.   

It should be coming out pretty soon, it's still listed as a June release.

I'm not quite sure which thread to put this in, but I found a couple Legends Snowtroopers today at a (Canadian) Walmart, the first time I've seen anything new for quite a while.

I haven't bought anything from the Legends line (except of course Vader) because of my dislike for the 5 POA in these figures, but I certainly like the nice sculpt of this trooper.

I think I got pretty lucky, $25 plus shipping.  He's definitely showing his age, but I'm stoked to have him.

A fun addition for me, the Takara wind-up R2.  It's a beater, missing the front sticker but the walking feature still works!   click the pic to see him in action:

Great find Darby, it must've felt pretty good the day Luke arrived.  :)


Just a small acquisition today:





...for my Snowtrooper army!  79 and counting...  I think I have a problem.  :D

Initially I wasn't that excited for Jabba, but he sure looks good with Crumb and that packaging is pretty sharp.

Those damn Habs are a thorn in my side.   >:(  Subban scores to win game 1 in 2-OT.

Nice grabs Jesse!  Is the Canadian EV the same as the US one except for the box? 

Yep, the Village itself is exactly the same as a US one.

Of course, Montreal has been sitting idle for awhile.  Wonder if that'll mess with their playing.

I think that can definitely mess with a team, waiting, waiting, waiting to play another game.  But Boston only played one more game than them, so things should be pretty equal when they meet for Round 2.

Like you said Dave, I think that it's such an established practice in Japan, so many collectors over there simply expect it and must enjoy the 'unknown' aspect.
