VOTC/OTC Purchases
« on: July 12, 2004, 02:11 PM »
Well, since it sounds like the OTC (and VOTC) are starting to show up around the country (even here in Nebraska!), I thought it would be nice to see what everyone is finding, buying, or passing on.  What do you have, what do you have left to get this year?  With the massive repacks, I know many will be having a Star Wars figure break here for awhile.

Here's what I've gotten so far:

Vintage Original Trilogy Collection
Han Solo (Amazon.com)

Original Trilogy Collection
Luke Skywalker - Dagobah (Wal-Mart)
Yoda - Dagobah (Wal-Mart)
Obi-Wan Kenobi Spirit - Dagobah (Wal-Mart)
R2-D2 - Dagobah (Wal-Mart)
Han Solo repack (Wal-Mart)

I've also seen a few more OTC repacks, but passed on them.  For now, I'm looking ahead to the rest of the VOTC line (maybe 2 of each, we'll see), the OTC Bespin wave, and repacks such as Bespin Luke, Gamorrean Guard, General Lando, Slave Leia, and possibly Bib Fortuna or the Jawas (their repaint looks pretty good).

Nice to see a fresh topic here.

Let's see, so far I have found at retail a lot of the repacks, but no Dagobah Luke/Yoda/Ben.

Here's what I've been able to buy so far, all openers for me:

- Dagobah R2D2
- Cloud Car Pilot
- Bespin Leia
- Lobot
- Jedi Luke

By far my favorite so far is the Clound Car Pilot, he has awesome articulation and a great sculpt.  I want several more, maybe up to a dozen altogether.

And I have been informed by the wife that my VOTC Han and Leia arrived today! :)

 :P

Only Lobot so far for me.  I intend to change that, of course.   :)

I dropped out of collecting for a couple of years, but jumped right back in with the OTC. Passed on the Bespin wave last Tuesday only to grab three on Friday and the other 17 on Sunday. I guess you could say I'm back in the game with all 20.  Here we go again. ::)

I REALLY like the OTC stuff because I didn't pick up most of the POTJ/Saga re-cards to begin with. Most will be brand new to me. Doesn't hurt that the cardbacks are stunning and very attractive when grouped together either.

Indeed!  If this beautiful OTC line doesn't draw the former collectors back into the fold, I don't know what will!  Congrats on the great OTC finds there too AustinPOTF.  Nice pic.  Jealous, I am!

Nice to have another 'Old Timer' stop by and visit us here at ye olde JediDefender as well.  I remember you from the other boards, long ago...  Hope you enjoy the friendly, cozy confines of JD, and feel free to give us a holler if you have any questions or comments about the place.  Looking forward to seeing you around the boards here...   8)

I just ordered Han, Leia, and Obi-Wan at Amazon. Yay!

I've been very tempted to do this as well, and I have actually been surprised that they have stayed "in stock" over there.  I did order a Han from them last week, while ordering some other stuff, but I have held off on the Obi and Leia so far.  I guess I'm afraid of ordering them (and paying a little more, with shipping), and then finding that they aren't nearly as "limited" as we originally thought.  I'm still tempted to order them though, and I know if figures from the next couple waves show up there, I probably will.

Also, forgot to mention earlier, I also picked up the Darth Vader TIE at TRU.  I never had this ship in any form before, so it was a good chance to pick it up (and in some nice packaging).  It is just sitting in the closet in the box for now though, I need some more room for ships (and all of this!) :)  Good luck to everyone in their searches!

Yay! I got the Bespin wave in the mail this morning so Iíve FINISHED my OTC collection!

OK, so Iím avoiding all the rehashes, but Iíve completed the line according to my own goals anyway  :P.  The line looks good, but Iím running out of space, so Iím just going to stick with the first issues that I already have.

Now it is on to the VOTC.  These are being very slow in making it over here, so itís going to be quite tough.  Still, I have the rest of the year to get only 12 figures, so my wallet should be in better shape.
Palitoy...it ain't yellow :)
