Another plastic freedom update from last night:

ROTS 12" Figures- did YOU know that Bariss and Shaak Ti came with clear stands while none of the others did? I certainly was surprised- these are the same stands that came with the Amidala Portrait Edition ones...



Only a few more shelves to clear out.....

Actually- it looks like I passed on him for some reason... still in the closet  in his box.    Is he especially hard to come by or worth alot or something?

I did the same unboxing craze a couple of months ago, I managed to fill up 10 bags of vehicles, figures, everything!
It was insane.  ;D
Good luck with all your unboxing!

Nah, rip open Grievous!  To hell with his so-called dollar value, he's way cooler open than stuck in the box.

And the chances of Sideshow making a Greivous soon........

Exactly- so I might as well go ahead and open up the Greivous and put him on display fighinting my SSC Obi-Wan!

Unleashing the toys...That is one of my favorite things.  The smell, the feel, the excitement...

The smell is a cool aspect of opening, but I recommend a well ventillated area, especially when opening large batches of toys.

   Hey Oboewan, I too would like to see some pics of your unboxing event. Sounds like you're having fun freeing the ships and figures, though.
   On a similar note, I decided to open some of my carded figures. I started with  UGH Han, Kenobi, Skywalker, and Cody, along with Celebration 3 Darth Vader. I already had a loose UGH Grievous, so now he doesn't look so lonely. I have a UGH Snowtrooper, Scorch, Vader, AT-AT Driver, and Fett left to open. I can't wait to free them.
   Oh, Oboewan, sorry about derailing your thread. I just thought this might fit in here.
