Mine is still coming together. Since I'm a programmer, I'm designing mine to be a Jedi Slicer. That is why I like the eletronic components on his head. I've had to make the 3po leg a little longer so I added a section from his other leg. I think he will be receiving a new hand and possibily a wrist gauntlet computer.

It's nice you can get away with that kind of thing here.


Her shaft is rayshielded so we're going to have use proton torpedos.

Theres a joke just waiting there but I'm not touching it. I'm  just going to snicker and wait. ;D

I'd storm her with my little trooper....

I'd like to open her blast doors....

At first I though he was wearing parachute pants. Then I realized its just the gun in the background. These look nice. I especially like the trim and the gauntlets. Are you going to make a red version?

I think I'm going to use the gi joe hard drive head for mine. I'm not thrilled with the way the naboo guard head is working.  I think I'll also use the obiwan pilot body I have laying around too.

Nothing like killing two birds with one stone. Those are some great ideas. I'll have to incorporate some of them in my version.

Hey Chewie. For the next Monthly Customizing Challenge can we do her?

You missed my point entirely. Your were probably too busy playing the lottery. >:(

Going into debt for something that ultimately wont matter  (ie star wars toys) for sort term happyness is stupid.  Saving for things that do matter like houses is important. With the equity in my house I can afford to buy figures and buy gas without a second though.

If the price of gas is distribing to you, you probably shouldn't be buying $6+ plastic men that will have no value in the future. But as long as your immediately happy thats all that count.

Sure. The OC goes to Target. The 909 dirt people shop at Walmart.

Wait a minute, my area code is 909. Fortunately chino hills doesn't consider itself part of SB county except in tax rates.  We're just a suburb of Brea. ;D

It's weird how Target hasn't had any clearances on ep3 stuff at all. They just keep raising the price then lower it again back to its original level. That is why there are so many frogs on the pegs.

As prices rise, it affects the poor much more than the rich. Gas prices would have to go up to $10-12 a gallon before it starts to put dents into medium income households. Since I'm not poor, its doesn't affect my toy runs in the least.

I think the scarer thing is the rise in housing prices. Around here in California its gone up 400-500% in a few years. Good for me that owns property. Bad for you that rent. Most new families are being majorly sqeezed out of the housing market.

Real estate is a far better investment than star wars toys. We should all stop buying star wars stuff, pay off debt and save to buy property. We would all be better off in the end and also save lots of gas from not doing toy runs.

Believe me, if you care any kind of debt and you still buy every star wars item in multiples you will wind up dirt poor for the rest of your life no matter how much you make. Pay off all your credit cards, car and student loans and buy a house instead.

I've seen all three sets around here a few times. They go pretty quickly. I skipped the sith lord set. It just didn't appeal to me.

Funny. Down in southern california, Target far out ranks walmart for having star wars stuff. Walmart typically has bare shelves around here for most of their toys. Target always keeps them stocked with mostly frog warriors. >:(

At $40 for a new TIE, I'm going to be skipping this one. I havn't bought a new ship since the preview anakin starfighter.

Does anyone have any Bossk arms or feet?
