Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Disneyland!
« on: February 7, 2014, 01:08 AM »
What a fun week we had!  We hit Disney for four days and Universal Studios for a day as well.  I think we picked the right time to go because there were hardly any lineups to deal with.  Star Tours, Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, Matterhorn, Radiator Springs Racers -- just so many fun rides.  I'm normally a big wimp, but it was so worth pushing myself to try them out.  I still couldn't bring myself to try the California Screamin' rollercoaster though!

Naturally, I had to grab some collectibles too!

Jedi Mickey's Starfighter - I don't even remember hearing about this coming out, so it was a neat surprise to find.

Ambush at Star Tours - I only found one of these sets, there was no way I could pass on this set with Vader.

Star Tours Search for the Rebel Spy - During the Star Tours ride, one person is chosen from the group as the "rebel spy" and their pic is shown on the screen.  My wife was chosen!

Droid Factory - My daughters and I each made 2 droids and had a lot of fun doing it.  I went with a red & white theme for both, gotta show my Canadian colours!  I still need to come up with names for them...

Vinylmation Pins sets - I haven't purchased any of these pins online before, but seeing them in person they were much cooler.

Vinylmation Droids Pins and Regular Pins - The Droid series pins are "Junior" ones, so a little shorter and come blind packed with 5 per package.  There are 14 in total to collect.  I was pretty stoked to get only OT ones (C-3PO, R5-D4, 4-LOM, IG-88, 2-1B), there are also some PT pins and Star Tours pins.

R2-D2 Mickey Ears hat - I just couldn't pass on the chance to dress like a kid and wear some Mickey ears with a Star Wars style.

R2-D2 Light Chaser - Who doesn't love hearing R2s sound effects?  Throw in some lights and I'm a sucker.  Check out the video!

Indiana Jones Vinylmation Figure - I bought one of these to try my luck at what I'd get from the blind package and got the chase Idol figure.  Pretty cool.

R2-D2 Popcorn bucket - My wife bought this for me!

42% off?  Whoa, that could be dangerously tempting.

My kids bought me these books for each of the last two Father's Days, so they're rather special to me.  To see these statues, I just can't resist. 

They're actually cheaper through BBTS -- $134.99 each -- and shipping to Canada is about half the price, so I put in my order through them. 

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2014

I'm certainly hoping to see the next couple waves of the Black Series, both 3-3/4" (Wave 4 and more) and 6" figures (Wave 4 and more).  I'm hoping we'll see the 6" Scout and Speeder Bike too.

Sounds great guys, I hope to cover everything multiple times.  My daughters have become daredevils along with their mother, so the rides will be a big focus.  Since we're going in between Christmas break and Spring break, I'm hoping the lines will be a little quicker to get through.

I should really do some research to see what collectibles I can hope to find at Disney.  I hope they're still doing those Build-A-Droids.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Re: 1/6 Han Solo - Hoth
« on: January 10, 2014, 02:55 AM »
Besides getting Willrow Hood made...getting Hoth Han with a Brown coat is the second greatest achievement of my Collecting Career.  Man that was that they are making both and acknowledging my gadflyness

Well done, Scott.  Well done.  8)

Kubricks / Re: Show me Your Kubes!
« on: January 10, 2014, 02:30 AM »
I haven't looked at Kubricks for quite a long time, but I just wanted to say how awesome those dioramas are Dan.  The use of spray foam for the snow is genius.

These are all I have these days, but I'm hoping to add some more Imperials.

PM coming for a few figures.

I started this thread over 8 years ago but wasn't able to go at the time.  My wife and daughter (age 4 at the time) and mother-in-law went, and now it's MY turn!  Our family -- 2 daughters (now 12 and 6), wife and I -- are going at the end of January and I'm pretty damn excited!

We have 4 day passes with the FastPass option and are staying at a hotel across the street from the entrance. 

I can't wait!

I like to display one of every Jedi, so these sets are a must have for me.  Seeing them on sale, I couldn't resist, though they're not supposed to be available until Nov 1 up here in Canuckia.

Has anyone found the larger scale Darth Vader yet?
