No, that's not good at all... I wonder what will happen to them?  Seems like a lot of e-tailers have gone under the past couple years (like aislesniper) so I hope they don't have to do that.  Their prices aren't always the best, but I'd have to say they are the most reliable place I've ever bought from.

ONLY ONE HOUR LEFT.

This isn;t a shameless plus for a freind, I just was browzing on e-bay and it was for 5.00 only and in an hour left.

I'd buy it if I had a credit card, but I don't :P

Well, I looked at it right after the auction ended!

I can't afford to be buying too much diorama stuff right now, but that dealer does have some other really nice items.

Fodder Alert!
« Reply #33 on: November 15, 2005, 01:41 AM »
The XD line of military figures currently features two movie-related figures in its assortments. They are from the recent wannabe Indiana Jones movie "Sahara", and feature the lead characters in middle eastern robes. Both look like they would make for good Senator bodies or background characters.

The only good pic I found was on an ebay auction...



I was tapped for cash tonight, or I would have bought the four I saw. With a hand- and head-swap they'd be pretty cool...

I picked some up the other night, the lack of accessories sucks though. I had plans of using the bodies for peseant types and using the head of Al as a Jack O'Neill (i'm going to heavily modify it though.

Thanks for the heads up.  Any of these to be found in regular retail stores?

I'm desperately searching for many of these to do some "modern" army building with.  My BBI military figures have had a noticeable lack of targets to shoot at!  >:(

The figures look cool Ryan, glad you could find them!  Pittsburgh his still an XD Drought zone so no Sahara figures to be found...  No Battle of the Bulge, no Japanese...  Just Marines.  :)

Oh, we do? Well, that sucks. Those looked really cool. I never saw the movie, but isn't Dirk Pitt the main character in Clive Cussler novels? Is this movie an adaptation of it?

Well we're not bone dry on XD, and sometimes the Battle of the Bulge wave appears, but Wal-Mart is **** for distribution of anything, so the Sahara and BotB figures aren't too common here...  The Japanese, Pilots, and Patton figures also are non-existant.  The only thing I ever see on this side of town are the Marines, which are cool figures mind you, but I need some damn diversity! :)

These may show, you never know, so keep your eyes open at Wal-Mart stores out your way. :)

I'm pulling for a Quinlan Vos. I could make quite a few versions of him and other charachters based off of him.

I'm sure Vos will get a TON of votes. I don't have much hope for my Bothan, but it's a figure I've wanted since Mon Mothma first bemoaned those who died stealing the Death Star plans :P

Well at least they could make a Borsk Fey'Lya figure from the NJO Book series. Then you could customize a bunch of different Bothans.
I remember my dream now.

Funny thatyou should mention that. It is right up at the top of my list too. I've actually been giving some thought to trying my hand at a Bothan headsculpt if I ever get a wax pen. I didn't realize how expensive t he good ones are. :(
