Thanks for keeping it Real.

I Am Sith hooked me up with the Box Set TC-14 and Padme.  Got them in the mail today and they look great!  Way better than spending $200 for the whole set, especially since I'm not a big fan of the other 3 figs.  I like Jango and the clone, but don't really need them for the minor differences in them and the Super Battle Droid just looks silly to me.

Received my 2009 Collector's Club set in the mail today.  Glad I was able to track this one down.  I really like these figures a lot now that I've seen them in person.

Down to 1.5 box sets left for a complete set...

My set came with I am Sith's as well (gotta love combined shipping).  Happy to have this set myself as well.  Been an expensive Kubie month for me.

I don't know why the Super Battle Droid has such skinny legs, when the regular Battle Droid has standard kub legs.  Makes the SBD really hard to keep standing, I had to use double stick tape under his feet just so he wouldn't fall over.

Yeah, not remotely impressed witht hat figure.  If it had been something better, I probably would have splurged to get the different clone and Jango, but couldn't see paying $200 when all I really wanted was Padme and TC.

Received Logray in the mail today. Payed 122.96 shipped (not a great deal but O.K.). Now I just need the VC Jawa to complete series 3.

My max bid for that one was $100 shipped.  Glad I was outbid by a fellow forum member!

That's a nice grab.  I was hoping to land that for about $100 as well as one of the harder chases to come across, but $123 is still a very nice price.  Well done GT!

Do you guys worry about Logray being faked?

Faked using what?  I haven't looked at one close enough to know - I take it there is something similar enough to the orginal out there to act as a suitable fake?

Yeah, the factory mold rejects.  Not too long after Series 3 hit, a whole pile of fake Lograys hit the secondary market.  I have no idea where the last round of chat about it lies, but suffice it to say that someone got a hold of a pile of Medicom Logray cast-offs and re-painted/touched them up enough to sell them as the legit product.  I'll dig around to see if I can find the links, but fake Lograys are out there for sure...

I just bit on the 2009 5pc Box Set.  I think I've got the Black Friday bug and just couldn't resist.  Found it on the bay for $199 with $10 shipping in the US, so after Bing Cashback (10% right now...-$20) and Ebay Bucks (-$4), it's only going to cost me $185 shipped.   8)
