Oh yeah, that helps out lots ::)  Big red circles from the customs folks comparing the receipt to the declared value is always a ton of fun >:(

Yeah.  Seriously.  I wonder what kind of dumbass would do that...  You'd have to be a total 'tard to do something so dumb!



And Beth, whatever helps you feel better about your "cheating" ways, dear...   ;)

Found the first 3 sets tonight, at TRU for $4.99 and right next to the regular SW action figure section.  No Chewie/3PO set though.  Is that one not out yet, or did I just miss out?  Doesn't sound like anyone's found that set yet...

Cute little suckers!  Probably only about $3 or $4 cute, but what the hell...

Hey Colman,

I hope all is well with you and yours.  Yes the Chewie and C3PO set is out but appears to be the HTF so far.  A neighbor of mine in AZ scored that set today.

Cool, thanks for the heads up Fish!  So, you've already made a collecting friend out there?!  Nice!  And where's our Arizona finds thread here, eh?!   :P  (I know RS has a kick ass one though)  BTW, did you come out here last week and NOT call me?!   :-X  I thought we were gonna try to get together when you were here.  LMK when you're headed back out Matthew!

Yeah, suuuure Jason.  That's what we all said we we got into this line - "for our nephews/kids".  What gave it away though, is most of us don't have nephews/kids...   ;)

You're gonna have to send us some pictures with visual proof, or your nephew tearing them all open and playing with them, and then him storing them away in HIS room!   :-*

OK, found all 4 sets at K-Mart today ($5.49 each), including the only one that I still needed - the Chewie/3PO one.  All caught up again!   8)

I already let him rip open the CC exclusive Biker Scout, so that's a start.   ;D

These guys have finally hit Target stores now too ($4.99), along with the newly packaged Millenium Falcon ($29.99).  Saw a ton of the three two-pack sets, but once again, absolutely NO Chewie/3PO sets.  Weird.  Definitely the tough one of the bunch to find...

Anyone know if there's any differences between this "new" Falcon, and the previously released one (other than the figures it comes with)?

Just curious, for those of you who collect the Playskool/Galactic Heroes line....are you selective, do you buy all of them, OT only, PT only?  I have all of the OT sets released so far...and I am about to get caught up with the new releases (thanks Matt!), and I've basically just been sticking to the OT figures/sets.  However, looking at the pics online of the AOTC wave coming up sometime soon, they look kind of neat as well, so I'm thinking about getting those too.  Just curious what some of you do, if you stick to the OT, or if you bring the PT sets in as well.  I believe previously, there have only been 2 prequel sets (Duel with Darth Maul and Rampaging Reek).  I've always stuck to OT-only with any sublines, and will probably continue to do so, but this line (as well as some of the Unleashed) are both tempting at times.

I'm not OT anything.  Having recently been watching the PT's again (my daughter likes Amidala, well, anything princess-like), I'm finding a great many flaws in the movies, so I'm not doing myself any favors.  But there are some really neat characters in the movies, so I don't like to restrict myself.  Besides, she actually plays with these ones, though she prefers playing with the Wampa, more than anything else.  

PT/OT, whatever.  They're all cool little toys.  Maul is neat.  Mace is neat.  Little clone trooper is cool.  The Reek is really well done.  I loathe Anakin as a child and the vehicle is the only Ep I vehicle I own, but it gets played with.  I still need to bring home my Falcon, now that I think about it.

How about this:  I bring home an OTC Falcon, Lego Falcon and Playskool Falcon all at once.  Think my wife will be impressed? ::)

Just received the first four packs of these (thanks Matt), and also saw some hanging out at TRU yesterday.  I am still really enjoying this line, and I really like how these are packaged.  I'm not sure what it is (character art, background, etc.), but they just look kind of spiffy to me.  Although some people probably wouldn't like it, looking at the art on the front, it seems they could easily develop a "Galactic Heroes" cartoon for the kids.  Anyways, nice packaging and figures, and I can't wait for the upcoming waves to start hitting.

Good Pal of mine in WI let me know that he found the AotC GH packs at Target near Madison today.

He nabbed the Padme/Aniakin set and the Obi-Wan/Jango set, but the Yoda/Clone were gone...

Time to start watching for these at retail too, eh?
