Paul do they still sell the starspeeder?  Just curious. 
When to Disneyland last night and picked up the droids for those that emailed me.

The Star Trader only had the new sets of parts. The droid bodies are still the BAD sculpts but they removed the lower hole on the side. Also there is now only one leg instead of a left and right version. They removed the wires around the lower leg. This should make it easier for lay people to build a droid without two left legs. Also the hats are brand new. They include a Oswald the Lucky Rabbit hat, sumbraro, imperial officer hat and a regular Mickey hat. I think that was all of them. The old two pack clam shells are gone. They only have the one droid version.

Thanks again for helping out a fellow collector!

Also, if I were to buy 6" figures at all, I'd buy the Japanese ones.  They're vastly superior, so why not?  Pay the extra, and be happier.  Piss on Hasbro's $20 meh.  But I'm still refusing to jump scales, no matter how obvious Hasbro makes it that they want me to jump scales.

Yeah, the Japanese figures rock. I posted some comparison shots of the Revoltech 6 Inch Stormtrooper and the Black Series 6 Inch Stormtrooper a while back, and did anyone else see Jayson's comparison of the Revoltech and Black Series R2-D2? Pretty sad. I still buy some Hasbro 6 inch stuff that we probably won't get for a while from Japan, but if we do, it's gone to a storage bin with old POTF2 stuff.

I dunno, I figure that I have the extra cash to spend, and if Hasbro doesn't want it, I'll gladly give it to one of the other companies that does.
On the heels of finding Yoda last week, I also picked up a TIE Pilot at TRU and "Boosk" from Amazon. Haven't gotten to open Bossk yet, but the TIE Pilot is a good figure.

Darth Maul Update from Tamashii

Holy Moly, Darth Vader looks AWESOME.  Not 100% perfect, but very very nice...  I may have to break down and pick one up.  :-\  #carefuldontopenthatdoor

You're right - I guess I should have said it was Mosep who was retconned into the light-haired nimban, not the dark hair version was retconned into Tawss. ;)

However you want to describe it, thanks to the article, I always thought Mosep was supposed to be the dark haired guy.  Now, he's the light-haired one for some reason. 

Like I said - either way, I'm happy to buy any cantina or Jabba Palace alien they make, even if they can't keep the names straight anymore thanks to all the changes over the years. :)

^Tawss Khaa was always the dark haired one. Dehipher used two different images of it for both of them and left the light haired one unnamed.

Anyone know where those figure stands are from?

The round ones are ProTech, I don't know about the oblong stands.
Here are the droids we made last night.
