Recent 30AC Purchases
« on: October 21, 2006, 12:02 PM »
I guess it's time to start one of these up.


My Tin Bikerscout and Blue Clone arrived from Hong Kong yesterday. I also picked up the PT Tin sets at TRU yesterday.

Well then.....

My Bikers from the Tin showed up a few days ago.  They are nice, despite Hasbro's attempt to Jango-tize them.

Could you please direct me to the place that you bought those?

Scored the ANH 30AV tin set.  This one and the AOTC set are the highest on my list right now.

Picked up the ANH set on Monday or Tuesday at TRU and got a free Wookiee Warrior to boot.  As I said in another thread, Vader's great, the Sandtrooper's good, Leia sucks, and Threepio STILL sucks.  The tin is useless.

I received the Clone Lieutenant from the AOTC Tin set (thank you Dressel Rebel!) on Tuesday as well, and picked up a ROTS tin on Tuesday afternoon at the local WM so I could finally get an Evolutions Anakin in at least one of the two Anakin JSFs from ROTS.  The AT-RT Driver isn't too bad, but Mace and Yoda weren't even opened.  The tin, again, is useless.

As far as 30AC goes so far I've just bought the Kanos/Jax set and the AOTC tin (basically just for the blue clone and Anakin).

I plan on getting ANH and possibly ROTJ tins when I find them, and the entire 8 Wave 1 when I find them, which might be the first time in years I bought an entire wave.

I found all of the OT tins just now at TRU.  I did buy the ANH one mainly for the Leia and stormtrooper.

I was tempted on the ROTJ one for the scout, but I don't like the Endor Rebel or Leia Endor.

The ESB was also a little tempting for the Chewie Hoth.  Snowtrooper is okay, but the articulation sucks.

Anyhow, not too bad a deal on the ANH at least with the free fig giveaway and all.
