Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Incredibles!
« on: November 7, 2004, 10:53 AM »
It was a great movie!  At least for us adults - my 3 year got a little spooked by the action. 

Alas, no trailer here.   :'(  After enjoying it so much on my little computer screen, I knew it would be wild on the big screen.  Fudge.

Kubricks / Re: Power of the Kubricks!

Not to change the subject of series 3, but today is my girlfriend's and mine 1 year anniversary and one of the presents she got me a a carded Luke Kubrick.  ;D One more down, 2 to go.

Now that's love, she's definitely a keeper!

Gentle Giant / Re: OT Gentle Giant Busts

You've got to wonder where these came from. How in the world did SWS.com just happen to find a few cases of these all of a sudden? And how many did they find?

I wonder if there was an agreement between Gentle Giant and the Mastercard people - perhaps it just expired and so the remaining stock went to SWS.com?  Just a guess.  As for how many they found, well I'd love to know that too.

$227 US!  That's $270 CDN!  Man, I knew that $50 was a good deal, but yikes!

[Does a happy dance]   ;D

They say they ship Nov 22. 

Thanks for pointing that out - in all the excitement I totally missed that fact.  It's gonna be tough to wait, but I can be patient (if I have to be).

Pretty surprising to see them pop up like this.  Probably gonna piss a whole lot of collectors off who have those already, and make a whole other lotta collectors who don't have them happy as **** (like Dave).

I'm one of the happy ones - I never dreamed I'd actually get these.  Like Brent says, that's assuming SWS.com actually delivers.  This is my 1st order with them, and I've heard so many horror stories that I don't actually believe, yet, that they're mine.  Crossing fingers!!

P.S. I won't tell your wife if you don't tell mine ;)

Deal!

You know, I'd really LOVE to take all the credit on this, but I must commend habs98 on snowtroopers.ca for giving me the info.   ;)

Kubricks / Re: Power of the Kubricks!

There's still much confusion whether the chase Jawa is 1:48 or 1:96  - Does HLJ ever release what the actual ratios are?  It looks like we need some sort of official source. 

1:48 BIN = $90

1:96 BIN = $79

Do you buy now while they're "cheap"?

Um, none?    :'(

The plan was to get 2 of each - 1 carded, 1 opened.  But I like Nataku's idea of 1 flanking either side of Vader.

12" Figures / Re: 12" Chewbacca (Kay-Bee Exclusive)
« on: November 3, 2004, 04:02 PM »
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.

Gentle Giant / Re: Bust Ups!
« on: November 3, 2004, 11:07 AM »
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 SWS.com.  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.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC C-3PO on Ebay??
« on: October 29, 2004, 03:27 AM »
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
« on: July 12, 2004, 11:57 PM »
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
« on: July 11, 2004, 01:56 AM »
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!
