300 sold really quick....

Really sad I missed that.  I was going to get JJ a gift (of a dozen)...and me a couple too.

The thought alone was nice.  I'm just so giddy to see a good one, finally, after I've been collecting seriously since my teens (about 13 or 14).  It was one of the first involved customs I made using Endor Han, a Death Squad Trooper head, and some plastic bits.

I wonder if the RFT would come with the staff of the Yavin Honor Guard
I dont remember if there was some kind of photo at sdcc 2011.

The two heads variants are a plus for the figure, as the painted antenna.

The blaster charges strap anticipates a virtual evolution for rebel pilots, maybe some time, they would come with that detachable piece, so the sculpt of legs must become more exigent. (You may say Im a dreamer but Im not the only one.)

I ordered as well...  I got 5.  He put them up to $8.99 now, so the "deal" isn't there like before, especially with $9 shipping.

I also ordered 5.  Too bad they're $9 each now.  

If I decide I don't like them for some odd reason, I know I can always sell them to Jesse.

I ordered 8. Been checking randomly and lucked out. New he was going to charge more this time though. When something sells that fast, you know you can get away with it.

I missed out again.

I am almost getting annoyed with my total lack of being a Vampire/nocturnal like you guys.  Oh well if he ever posts them during the daylight hours while I am at my desk, I will buy all 200 and we will have a giveaway here on the Site to celebrate Jesse's triumph.





And then we will complain about the lack of a Holster.

I'll complain about the holster first, don't worry. :)  It's like ICMG not having his belly.

We're going to have to find donor figures so we can graft their holsters onto our new RFT's.


So much to do.  So little time.

Death Star Gunner's got the most accurate one, aside from the color...  If it were brown, that'd be pretty spot-on.  I don't know if it fits a RFT style pistol well though.  It fits the Impy blaster perfectly, but just not sure on the RFT style one.

Do not feel too bad, I checked three times a day since the first posting and then he reposts just as I shut my computer down. I knew this figure would be popular but not this popular. I want to order some other figures but I am trying to hold out for what will hopefully be round 3. If he raises the price again I will wait for online retailers to get them carded. sometimes his figures have flaws. I also noticed if you order a lot of figures from him in one order he usually messes up and is not the best at making good on fixing the issue. I still like him but I am stating my many experiences with him, it happened several times.
