(though I'm hesitent to share with you two if you're just going to brag about having Japanese pals who get you stuff for cost  >:().

Well, I think I've kept the bragging to a minimum at worst, more just small comments discreetly placed.  But if it's any consolation, I've spent so much on gas tracking down trilogo figures for my contact that I'd be willing to bet you're ahead financially even if you're buying from ebay.  In my case this is payback for about 5-6 years of buying and shipping stuff to my Japanese buddy.

Medicom has updated their website with the Parco Exclusives details.

No links for orders yet, but it looks like the carded 6-pks might be going up for sale via the Collectors site sometime during the 4th of July weekend...  stay tuned I guess.

Like many I think the Band Member packaged with the instruments is neat but I have all I want from series 2.

I could easily see OT starved collectors jumping all over them though...........

Two carded sets up on ebay for a BIN of $199

As I was lucky enough to pick up a Parco Sandtrooper recently then I think I'll try and pick up an orange pauldron Sandtrooper from this set now.

When this sucker drops I'll be getting it.  I just like the carded ones better, they look better in acrylic cases on display.

I don't know how I'd be able to mess with this.  Can anybody help with this?  O honestly don't think I'll be able to figure out how to put in for it, even if they so ship overseas. :-X

I'd like to get a sealed set of these if possible.  I just won 5 of the 6 yesterday.  But I can open them since I don't have any of Series 2 at all.
