I was awfully tempted to pick up the Vader, but ended up passing.  I have to pass up something to help save up for the Falcon, AT-TE, and all that other stuff that is a few weeks away now.

Pass on Vader?  Tsk, tsk Brian.  Falcon be damned.  ;)

Found Grievous and Yoda at Target today on my (fruitless) hunt for 7/26 stuff. I love 'em! ;D

I've only got the Yoda, but I'm thinking he needs a buddy.  Do I go with an enemy (ex. Palpy), or a buddy (Mace, Chewie, Obi-Wan)?  I'm having a hard time deciding and I really do have to choose (since diapers are not optional).

I saw the Vaders at Wal-mart this past weekend with the 2 dot eyes. Either Wal-mart is putting out old stock or Hasbro is shipping both versions still.
The most prized possession of my entire star wars collection is my Sega Trilogy Special Edition Pinball Machine.

I recommend Chewie, I think he'd look great alone with Yoda. :)

I have been basically out the collecting for almost a year now but have collected these.  Would be really cool to see Aliens and Predators but unfortuneately Hasbro has no contract. I'd assume a GI Joe line would be next. Heres what ive picked up so far.  Looking forward to some OT SW and more of the Marvel stuff. On a side note, I did not realize there were any variants in the line.

I've been looking for the Chewie for a couple weeks, but haven't seen him.  I did get the Grevious and Palpy though. :)

It sounds like they're releasing plain, all-white/black Muggs through HTS.com.

Looks like these are now up for pre-order (ships in September):

How unexciting.  I assume these are being made for customizers  ??? 

I just don't get if if they're not.

Can I be the first to say that Hasbro's new line of Ultra-Shadow Might Muggs is a bit too far?  Actually this seems like kind of a neat idea, since it costs Hasbro no extra money it terms of development, and gives customizers a great outlet.  Not that there seems to be a shortage of C-3POs that people who were interested could paint over, but still an interesting idea.

I think it's a neat idea that really won't hurt to have out there. One day if I'm feeling inspired I might order a couple and whip something up. I may even end up just adding the blank ones to my collection. :-X

RS has said Darth Revan and shirtless Maul are coming. Shirtless Maul? I love the idea of getting that in Mugg form, but is Hasbro really running out of ideas in this line, too? Already? ::)

They just like churning out the characters that they know people will buy, I guess. By the way, I noticed that BBTS now has the SDCC-exclusive Admiral Ackbar Mugg available for order by itself, so you don't have to buy the shadow stormtrooper if you don't want it (I don't).

Good to know. I might actually skip the Shadow Stormtrooper.
