Just to reiterate - what the hell was Medicom thinking with two Anakin and one Gam. Guard in the box?  I'm going through my extras and I have an absolute ton of Royal Guards left over (no worries there) some extra Biker scouts (again, no biggie) an extra Lando, an extra Leia (I can work with those) and then five, count 'em, five extra Spirit Anakins.  Why?  Who cares?  I'd be pleased as punch if I were sitting on five extra Gam. Guards (even if they weren't exceptionally Kubricky) but five extra Anakins.  Blech. 

Also not keen on the chase ruining one of the boxes/sets, that's not helping me at all. 

crustily yours.

...Why?  Who cares? 

Maybe they were making a political protest over the whole 2004 DVD "young Anakin ghost" swaperoo?

Yeah, I bet that's it.  They were soooooo pissed about Hayden's ghostly appearance in ROTJ that they released a TON of "Old Guy" Ghost Anakins to prove a point.

Whats worse, infested with Anakins or Ewoks? hmmmm

The Anakins make for good freebies & giveaways. I put a few kubs in the 501st box when they collected here (along with Luke X-wing and some other good ones, so don`t think I was just dumpin junk! )
They are nice to toss in when you trade with someone or sell something too. Melt a few down and see if they burn blue, bb gun targets, hang one from your rear view mirror, any number of things good ol` Anakin can be used for  8)

My Kuby display cases arrived today so open they became. The smell of Kuby's, so intoxicating!  ;D  Except that Spirit Anakin, I found it had a different smell to it.  :-\

Lookin` good!
Yep, ol` Anakin spirit is the weakest kub inwhile. I don`t like the spirit/holo stuff in general, but if they give us a Yoda to go with Ben & Anakin I guess it will be cool enough.

A spirit Yoda would complement Ben & Anakin.  ;D

Very nice Dale.  Very nice indeed.  I think Yak Face is my favourite, followed by the Gamorrean and ERG.  8)

Thanks to Dale, I was able to grab a box of Series 7 (after thinking I had ordered a case from Robby.jp only to realize I never actually sent the e-mail  ::)), and it arrived today.  I was quickly reminded of how much I love the detail in these!  As sharp as the Royal Guards will look flanking the Emperor, I think my favourite is actually Leia Boushh because of the detail in her outfit and the removable helmet.  8)  Lando looks great for the same reason.  I love the Scout Trooper, it sure makes me wish I had the Bike too.  ;)

Again, a shout out to Dale who pointed me towards a nifty BIN for Yak Face.  Have to wait for it to arrive, but it should herald the end of Series 7 for me 8) 

BHS is on the way, box set is on order.  3-4 days until the announcement of Series 8.

Speak for yourself, I love the Spirit versions!
And I love the Flesh Nod to the Vintage line...flesh nod, that just sounds wrong.

I do speak for myself, who else would I be speaking for?
And, rumor at the shop is that you love to give flesh nods.

Very nice review on Series 7 Mr Jeff! I see you are trying to create more junkies for your peddling way...
Is the ankle holster actually usable?

I want this weekend to be all about series 8. Come on Medicom!!

Very nice indeed, Jeff.  It's amazing the amount of people that have started collecting these.  I was late to the party but managed to catch up relatively easily.  Can't wait to see what series 8 brings.

Mine's not...
