Congrats on that Droid Factory, that's pretty cool.

I recently added a 4th boxed Vader's TIE Fighter to my focus.  They're all open, but I love how they display together.

I've also been slowly building my loose 12" figure collection, I grabbed a Stormtrooper, C-3PO, and Han -- all complete.  Getting closer to completing the set!

IG-88 will be the highlight of this wave for me.

I have to agree.  I'm only collecting the OT with 6" figures, so Cody is out, but I'm not sure I need another Leia.  Although she does make sense for those wanting to complete the Jabba scene in a different way.

I'm surprised by the lack of interest in the Emperor, to me he's a must have.  I'll admit the way the hood is tacked onto his robe is a little strange, but other than that I think it's a great looking figure.

I'm sure some of these are inevitable, but these are my personal top 10:

1. Snowtrooper
2. AT-AT Driver
3. Emperor's Guard
4. Tarkin
5. Gamorrean Guard
6. Obi-Wan ANH
7. Lando ESB
8. Tusken Raider
9. Luke ANH
10. Leia ANH

Honourable mentions:

Ree Yees
Yak Face

The hockey rink on the bottom floor.

I think the hockey rink is on the command level and the penalty box is the trash compactor...

Ha!  Nice!  ;D  No, there's no actual differences between the playsets themselves.



Uh, yeah, they're even starting to tempt me, who vowed not to deviate from 4" scale stuff...  But that?  Holy ****.

If Hasbro wanted to bump figure prices to $15 for the 4" line, I'd be giddy to see them go this route.  Multiple scene-specific heads, hands, hyper articulated, crisp paint apps...  I'd pay 50% more for figures for that kinda stuff.

And these shame their 6" line, top to bottom.

Thanks for posting that JJ, Luke looks pretty impressive, especially posed against Vader on that background.  Tempting...

I actually picked this up a couple weeks ago, it was a great way to end 2014.  A Canadian boxed Death Star, I certainly never expected to own this!  It was only missing the rope, but I lucked out and already tracked one down.

The preorder came up at HLJ for Vader and the Stormtrooper, but they're already pre-sold out!  I'm pissed I missed them.  Hopefully the BBTS prices aren't too ugly, it's way cheaper for me to buy from Japan because the Canadian dollar is much stronger against the Yen than the US dollar.

Gas dropped to 074.9 per litre here in Edmonton.   :P

What?  We're still paying 104.9 in Kelowna.  Welcome to BC.  >:(

That Stormtrooper looks amazing!  I may have to consider this setup:

That display background is very cool!  I'll definitely have to look into it when I preorder my Vader.  Thanks for the update Jeff!

The title says it all, I'm looking for 3 Kubricks to complete my display:

AT-AT Driver

Please PM me if you can help, thanks!
