HOT prices at KB Toys!
« on: May 20, 2003, 11:15 PM »
I know I don't have any money at the moment, but I just had to buy these two items that are on sale at KB Toys.  They're at incredible prices, so I didn't want anyone else here to miss this great offer.  Here's what I just bought...

-- Republic Gunship = $9.97
-- Jedi Starfighter with Obi-Wan Kenobi = $4.97

I already knew about it, but thank you for the heads up.  It's always nice to share the info! ;)

Right now I have to pass on any unnecessary spending as I have just changed careers and am going into a pure commission life insurance sales career.  I think I will do well at it, but at the same time I am aprehensive because I won't have a definite paycheck coming in...

 :P

Good call on the Gunship and Jedi Starfighter.  Also, there are great prices on custom fodder.  For example, I just ordered 4 Lott Dodds for random alien senator customs (thanks to CHEWIE for the idea for using Dodd's body for my hammerhead and walrusmen senators) and 4 SAGA Endor Rebel troopers (Dresselian rebel and endor rebel customs)...that's 8 figures for $18 shipped.  Bargain time at kbkids.com...

I knew about this too when it first took place, but when I tried to order both items they immediately ran out of stock.  I got an email from KB Toys about these items being back in stock, so I immediately ordered both of these.

I was pondering getting some Starfighter's with Kenobi figures.

$5 for a figure and a to-scale ship's not a bad deal (even if the ship's missing its 2 rear gear).

If the Republic used that starfighter overall, and it wasn't just a Jedi thing, I'd clear them out of the things...  Right now it appears a Jedi-only thing though.  Hmmm...

May still buy 2 or something though.

Hey Metal Jedi!

You wouldn't be the same chap I'm making a purchase from over at Rebelscum.com would you?

Either way I'm glad ya jumped over here to JD.com, but it's even better if you're the great guy helping me get something I've had the toughest time finding!

Welcome to the site no matter what, and hope this becomes your forum of choice.  :)

Oh man....I've got 2 gunships already, and now I'm contemplating a third. The price is right, but living in NYC doesn't allow for a lot of extra space...

On a similar note, anyone know where I can get gunship pilots these days?
