Picked up 2 Alien Bespin Guards, a Scanner Tech, an AT-AT Driver, and an Imp. Engineer at the Pittsburgh Steel City Con, all for a good bit less than retail price.  Usually $5 or less.

Not all I picked up but a good chunk was Legacy...  Now I have a new stack of BAD parts to sift through too! :P

Also forget what line it came out in but the 181st TIE Interceptor (Elite one w/red stripes), I was sold a pair of wings to one for $5.  I'll track any random TIE cockpit down, paint to match, touch up with some details, and make a Baron Soontir Fel fighter...  He's a man without a ship.  :-\

This stuff had to come out between 06 and 08 right?  Totally forgot this ship's time-frame.

Let me know if you have the right leg and left arm of the YVH droid.  I never got those and would like to trade for them if possible.

Yes.  I never got to finish that droid.

I finally got a concept snowtrooper. This is an amazing figure. It makes Hasbro's current stuff look like a polish bootleg.

I agree...  It's great but I dug the McQuarrie one more.  Still all the concept figures but the Stormtrooper were as good or better than even most of TVC...  A few TVC were top notch too (Ponda, RFT, Gammie) but so much from 2007-2009 was as good or better with pack in stuff and a lower price.

McQuarrie figs are my only carded collection to this day besides a set of silver figs I should sell haha.

The non-McQuarrie one seems more pulp sci-fi novel cover than Star Wars. But that's not a bad thing. Not sure why they've never revisited concept art figures, I assume it goes back to Hasbro hating (collector) money.

A Hoth rebel and Endor rebel are both high on my Wishlists...  Bikerscout too...  Much needed additions.

Lando was noticeably absent.  I'd also buy an upgraded Stormtrooper as well.

Concept Jabba?  Gnome Yoda might be funny too.  They didn't do many Johnston designs.

A couple of days ago, Target had five of the ROTH-DEL MASONA VS. SUPER BATTLE DROID sets for $17.95 each (orig $12.99). They were actually in the computer system and in great shape. They must have found them in the back and put them out with the new reset. Of course, I didn't buy them.

With the Clone Wars animated line having ended, I am finally getting around to running down some of the realistic-style characters from the original Tartakovsky series. I loved the animated figures for that show but never really got into the more realistic interpretations, although some of them seemed pretty cool.

I finally started building a list this year and between the Legacy Collection BAD line and the TAC line, there's really not all that many to worry about, about 13 total I think?

In the past week or so I have picked up the Quarren Soldier, Mon Calamari Warrior, Snow Bunny Padme and the IG Lancer droid for about $5-$6 or so on average, courtesy of eBay. Not a bad deal to fill in some of these holes.

Or a motorbike in Tron, do the deed and then I'm gone.
