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.

I added a few great pieces to my collection this past weekend after attending a toy show in Victoria, BC.

First off, my Canadian Ewok Village.  Box is a bit beaten up, but the playset is complete.  I never thought I'd jump in on one of these!

I also found a boxed Laser Cannon and 3 minty Snowtroopers to add to my growing army.  I actually thought the Cannon was a Canadian box when I bought it at a vintage toy store, but when I got home I realized it was a Trilogo (or is it referred to as bilogo?).  I totally missed the presence of six languages (!).  I didn't expect to find a foreign box like this!

And finally, an ESB figure case, it'll display nicely with my CDN SW one.

I've been meaning to post my pics of the Vader in this series.  It's the same figure as the Mission Series 2-pack.
