Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS - Battle Arena Assortment.

Saw (but didn't buy) Mace & Palps and Ani & Dooku today. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the Palps. I'll definitely be getting this one. I only glanced at the other set, but I think it's worth a second look since the rest of the Anakins all look kinda funky in one way or another.

That would kick ass. :)

So far $31.91 ($14.99 AT-RT, $9.99 Holo Yoda, $4.99 Quickdraw Clone, plus tax).

Then $15.94 of 2002 Saga that I happened upon.

Anybody else get lucky?
Yeah I did and so did 4 others in MN :)

That's me. ;) Yep I got my Holo Yoda ... there were only twelve and I was fifth in the line (at least originally). Neener neener to all the rest of you that missed out. :P Sorry for rubbing it in, it's just that this is the first time I've scored anything that could be considered a rare exclusive. Of course it'll only be rare for a week but that's beside the point. ;)

I'll get the clone set. Pass on Grievous. Haven't decided on Obi-Wan.

I like the AT-RT, although I haven't bothered with the walking feature yet.

Out of curiousity to see if anything happens, I added our "MN & Canuckia Store Reports" thread to my RS sig. I only have 3 posts at RS, so I highly doubt anything will come of it.  8)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS must have figures for you?

Over time I plan to get 75% of the basics, picking the best of the multiple releases like Obi-Wan and GG. But I'm a sucker for clones and every single Palps. ;)

These are my must haves:

All types of clone
All types of Palpatine
Battle droids, droidekas, Super BDs --- Believe it or not, I don't currently have a single droideka or SBD.
Grievous's Bodyguard (Battle Attack!) --- Just plain looks cool. Two.
Neimoidian Warrior --- Awesome-looking dude.
Wookiee Warrior --- Awesome-looking army builder.
Count Dooku (Sith Lord) --- Don't have any Dooku yet.
Bail Organa (Republic Senator) --- Sucker for anything Bail Organa.
C-3PO (Protocol Droid) --- Believe it or not I don't have a gold Threepio. Well, at one point I had the first POTF2 version, but I painted him silver to customize the Bespin protocol droid that told Threepio to go shove it. ;)
Padmé (Republic Senator) --- The only Padmé I have so far is EpI Tatooine peasant disguise.
Agen Kolar (Jedi Master) --- He is teh roXXorz!!!111! SA version of cool new Jedi.
Royal Guard (Senate Security) (red and blue versions)
Mon Mothma (Republic Senator)
--- I'm a fan of "Senate building"--think army building with Senators--so I need all three of these (multiples of the guards).
Ki-Adi-Mundi (Jedi Master) --- I've loved this character since Prelude to Rebellion #1, and I don't even have a figure of him. Up to now, that is.
Luminara Unduli (Jedi Master) --- SA version of cool Jedi. I like the character but missed the Saga version.
General Grievous (Exploding Body) --- This is the cloaked GG right? I only plan to get this version, except for the one that comes with the Wheelbike.
Tarkin --- Well DUH.
Ask Aak (republic Senator) 
Meena Tillis (Republic Senator)
--- Senate builders.
Captain Antilles --- Can't go wrong with Alderaanians.
Mas Amedda (Republic Senator) --- Yes definitely. I have the POTJ version, but for some reason I really like this character and figure.

And my lesser priorities:

Tarfful (Firing Bowcaster!) --- Normally this would be on my list, but I already found him leaked about a month ago. :)
Mustafar Sentry --- Looks cool.
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Red Leader Pilot) --- Appears to be the best Obi of the bunch.
Plo Koon (Jedi Master) --- SA version of cool Jedi. Not as much of a priority, since I'm pretty pleased with the POTJ version.
Shaak Ti (Jedi Master) --- SA version of cool Jedi. Not as much of a priority, since I'm pretty pleased with the Saga version.
Saesee Tiin (Jedi Master) --- SA version of cool Jedi. But not as much of a priority since I'm pretty pleased with the Clone Wars version.
Aayla Secura (Jedi Knight) --- SA version of cool Jedi. Not as big a priority, since I have the Saga version.
Vader's Medical Droid (Chopper Droid) --- Intriguing.
Polis Massan (Medic) --- Intriguing.
Utapauan Warrior --- Looks really nifty.

Eventually I will get most of the rest (e.g., Yoda, Darth, and so on) but they are secondary.

You know what would be awesome: a 3-pack of troopers standing at attention. Much like the bootleg AOTC troopers. These wouldn't even need leg articulation, and only minimal arm artic.

The Clones aren't something I want to see variants in personally.  I'd sooner just have the one set to buy and be done with it, and let the SA bodysculpts get the variations then.

Good point.

As things stand now, I'm looking at getting 1 QuickDraw Clone, 2 of the SA (#40something), and however many of the 3-packs I can get my hands on. Mind you, that's just the white infantry, not including the Pilots, Officers, and other types.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: April/2005 - Your Plan of Action
« on: March 31, 2005, 02:02 PM »
TRU Midnight Madness. I'm only budgeting $30 for the event. One or two deluxe or small vehicles, and a couple of basic figures.

I'm a college student; I need to save some for the books to buy at the Matt Stover signing, for stuff to buy at Celebration III, and so on. But rest assured I'll be diligently plugging away all year in $10 - 20 increments. :)

In a way it's too bad I can't start off with a spectacular blaze of sound and fury like I'd hoped -- but on the other hand it prolongs the fun to acquire them in bits and pieces through the spring and summer ... and fall ... and winter ... and following spring ... and summer ... and then on 75% off clearance ... and so on.

So keep in mind that this list is my long-term plan.

Basic, Deluxe, and Small and Medium Vehicles.
About 75% of these items. Picking the best version of "multiple release" characters like Obi-Wan, Anakin, Yoda, Grievous. One opener per, and multiples of army builders.

Holo Yoda: yes.
Lava Vader: screw that!
Wal-Mart Early Bird BS: see above.

Battle Arenas.
Probably pass. Clearance maybe.

A few. Waiting til I see them in person.

Force Battlers.
Probably Anakin and Obi, depending how they look in person. Later on, Chewbacca and Clone.

I don't collect those, so pass except for the Clone Trooper.


repaint Gunship
I don't have either previous version, so yep.

Pass unless I see an extremely good deal on clearance.

Anakin, Obi, Asajj Ventress (later wave), Clone (later wave). Pass on Grievous unless it looks really spectacular in person. I'm not a fan of the GG concept and up to now I haven't collected Unleashed.

Galactic Heroes
I've only gotten one GH set so far (Tusken and Jawa), and here I'll just get 1 or 2, like Chewie & Clone and maybe Yoda & Palps. Not a priority though.

Jedi Force
Haven't been paying attention to this line, so I'll take a look in person, but pass unless there's something really spiffy like a clone (noticing a theme here? ;)).

Darth Tater
Pass unless $1.50 clearance.

Pass unless clearance. Maybe the Chewie watergun or bowcaster, or Yoda's saber.

Die Cast & Micro Things
Sounds promising; waiting till I see them in person so I can figure out exactly what they are.

Fast Food Happy Meal Gimmicks
Wait and see.

Books & Comics
One of pretty much everything (Visual Dictionary, Incredible X-Sections, Essential Guides, adaptations, whatever else), however I'm not touching any of these until after I see the flick. The one exception is the novelization, which I'll get at the Matt Stover signing event.

Gah! The bitches! >:( ::)

Fortunately for me, I'm going to TRU for MM anyway.
