12" Figures / Re: 12" Chewbacca (Kay-Bee Exclusive)

I can't remember where I read it, but I'm pretty sure they said he was supposed to be 15" tall.  That seems a little more in line with scale.

Thanx for the info Mr. Matt JediMAC.  I've always just collected the Hasbro figs, but these mystery packed Bust-Ups add a little more excitement to the chase.  I'll probably try and find a complete regular set for this 1st wave to get caught up, then maybe try a case for the 2nd wave so that I can do a little trading too!  Should be fun.  Just don't tell the wife...  (Normally, she's VERY understanding about my addiction, but adding more to the list could be trouble!  :o)  I'll see if I can find some goodies in your sell & trade sections.

Hi guys.  Pretty new here, but I've finished reading this thread and it got me very excited about these (more collections to complete - great!).  It seems that buying a case of these is pretty expensive - even on sale they're $100US at  I managed to find a few sets of series 1 on eBay (excuse me, ePay) for $20 - $25.  If you buy a case, you're going to be stuck with many duplicates obviously - have you guys had much luck trading them away, or are you stuck with them?  I'm just wondering if the cost of a case is worth the chance of getting a chase Leia, or if I should just give up on the idea of getting the chase figure and be happy with a complete regular set.

Man, I'm really kicking myself now.  I saw one of these the other day, but didn't have the cash, and figured, hey it's 3PO, there'll be lots of them later.  Oops.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Episode 3 Cardback

I agree, what will happen?  

I know RS had a report about four preview figures and a ship being released in November and I couldn't help but think: huh?  

Where is the logic of that?  POTJ was in full swing through the winter IIRC.  Sure, it was the last couple of waves, but still at least 7 figures.  Leaving only four figures and a ship for the Christmas season plus another four months (six months in total) is just plain stupid marketing.  

Good point.  Fans are going to be getting more and more excited for the big show in May - to only have those 4 preview figures will definitely not be enough to keep us happy.  Who knows, maybe they'll manage to work in some more OTC stuff in the meantime?

As for the cardback, Comic Con may even be too early to reveal the card.  With such a focus on OTC, they may delay revealing it a little longer.  Of course, I would like to be wrong, after seeing all of the great mock-ups here, I need to know what the card will really be!

Other Collectibles / Re: Unleashed Again

These Unleashed figs just keep getting better and better.  Initially I ignored this line when it started, but now that I have Boba Fett, Yoda, Chewie and Clone Trooper (not red), I'm hooked.  I will have these!

When I was a kid, reading these little catalogs was such a highlight:

Have this one, have this one, need this one, oooh NEED this one, have this one...

It's great to see them back!
