I picked up one of the huge booster packs today and got the Hailfire Droid  :-\  I picked the "heaviest" set there because I wanted a Rancor or AT-ST.  I scored a Darth Vader in that set though, so it wasn't a complete waste. 
I might have to buy another set to see if I can get one of those pieces...then again, every booster pack that I buy is $20 away from a Koto Scout Trooper.... dilemmas dilemmas
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Do or do not. There is no try.

I have quite a bit from RS, CS and ROTS, and a few from Universe.
I posted in the trade section a bit ago, list is a little outdated now though.
Check it out and LMK if you wanna trade.

No starter set for Universe.
I guess at 20 (retail) per booster, they felt it was pushing it to offer a starter?
I love the ROTS starter, the game board is awesome. But with the huges now,
it gets cramped real quick! heh

I'm still waiting for my 2 cases of Universe Minis in the mail, but I came across a collectibles shop that had boosters for sale, so I had to grab a couple.  Here's what I got:

1. Clone Trooper - Common
6. Battle Droid - Uncommon
12. Abyssin Black Sun Thug - Common
19. Guri - Rare
20. Kaminoan Ascetic - Common
23. Nexu - Uncommon
30. Tusken Raider on Bantha (Huge) - Uncommon
32. X-1 Viper Droid (Huge) - Uncommon
36. Dark Trooper Phase III - Uncommon
44. Bith Rebel - Common
46. Dressellian Commando - Common
48. Luke Skywalker on Tauntaun - Rare
54. New Republic Commander - Uncommon
56. Young Jedi Knight - Common



I don't plan on playing the game at all, just collect 'em.  Of the Huges, I wanted the Bantha and Rancor the most, so to get the Bantha already is pretty sweet.

I just got an e-mail from GameOutfitter.com saying that my order has shipped.  It was good news until I realized they're using UPS.   >:(   The customs and ******* brokerage fees are going to kill me.   :'(  For some reason I thought they used USPS which doesn't charge me the brokerage fee.

Are you in Canada?
Too bad they didn`t inform you before they shipped, might have been able
to get them to ship USPS.
Does FedEx wack you too? DHL?
Hope it`s not too bad!

Yeah, I am.

UPS, FedEx, DHL - they all hit ya with brokerage fees.

I should have been smarter and put in a request to have them sent by USPS when I ordered them.   :-\

Don't forget about your other alternative if you deal with guys in Canada! Canada Post....argh!  Talk about a hindering infrastructure. 

I decided to trade my extras minis with some dudes in the States, I ended up paying between $5.50 and $12.50 per package with Canada Post, they use USPS and they are paying like $1.50 to $3.00.

Well, that just blows.
UPS is expensive enough without adding extra fees.

Got a few boosters yesterday and pulled a Thrawn!
3 more to go, Kyle, Maul and Luke Jedimaster.

I have extra Baron Fell, Nute Gunray, B. Monk and an AT-ST I got
extra too, hoping to be able to trade for the last few I need.

HOLY S^@T!

Well, hope you get tons of good pulls to make up for the extra $$.
If you get extra Kyle and Jedi Master Luke, we need to talk...  ;D
