Whatever works as long as, in the end, I get what I want.

Thanks CB,cool encouragement from you..I'm really thought of giving up in searching for those Kuby's..It's really hard to get it from the place where I'm residing now.Yup,time zone differences,whereby have been bidded out most of the times..SW is part of my life though,but due to most figures either rare in getting or damn expensive from ebay...sigh..might be a sad turning point to others Kub's  released though.Ie..Metal gear.etc..
still in a midst of consideration though,as i'm still wish that miracles can happen,as i still believed in the Skywalker family still rocks the galaxy....

Picked up a Biker Scout at a local Star Wars shop here in town. They had the Imperial Guard and a couple others but none that I wanted. Now if I can just fine the TIE pilot. ::)

My Yakface arrived which is good, but it makes me a little nervous.  The arms are pretty loose on this guy.  Is that the case on anyone else's?

The arms on mine are good, tight joints. I have had the odd regular figure with loose joints or a leg a tad longer than the other.

Same thing happened with my Imperial Officer (Veers) from Series 6. These things happen from time to time. I've had loose arms on my Bespin Luke and Hoth Han as well....

Thanks to Jessevader, the imperial ranks swell a little more... 3 DS gunners, 3 DS troopers, 3 jawas, bikerscouts, and guards. Plus some ewoks for some customizing that will make the ASPCA a little nervous....

Yeah, I've given up on being a completest.
I'll still get a MC just in case there is a Chase I want to keep, but from now on its only a few from the regular series and a carded one here and there, oh and a 400% here and there as well, oh and an RAH here and there as well....
Seriously, I found that the Chase figures are the hardest thing to keep up with because of price.
If I cut them out it will leve the door open for some cool carded stuff and a few loose series ones now and again.
But alas with Star wars there is always something I want!
If my pockets were deep I'd buy those damn Attakus Sandies!
I also had to have that McQuarrie book that is on the way, the man is amazing and he did art for so many other things that include one of my other interests...Bigfoot!
All my geekness (well a good chunck) in one wonderful book!
