I'm kind of a "one of everything" type a guy, but dispite that, I won't be picking up any of the Wholesale club packs.

Tarfful.... I am working on a custom Tarfful that should make up for the one that Hasbro made.

The tarrful you're making would have to made out of solid gold to make up for hasbro's terrible tarrful  ;)

I'm sure it'll be awesome wookiees seem to be your specialty.  :)

Basically, I replaced the legs from the knee down to give him better leg articulation, and need to do quite a bit of repainting.  I am thinking I will finish it tonight and send pics to both my hosting buddies here.

Hadn't really planned on passing on any (at least of the basic figures; vehicles, deluxe, 12inchers, etc. is a different story) since I'm somewhat of a completist, but I've definitely been spreading out my purchases because of monetary reasons.

I found #37-40 (except the AT TE Gunner) today, and I passed on them, only because it was Kohl's and $7.  I can wait, which seems to be the prevailing theme with all of these guys.  Today I saw every figure available except for the aforementioned Gunner, and I doubt that will change much.

Here is my Tarfful upgrade.  Lots more new stuff can be found in the customs and in the photonovel sections.

Ook, you would probably really like the Shaak Ti figure...

I passed on the exclusives too, except for the holo Yoda.

Although I haven't seen the figure yet, I'm debating on whether or not to pass on Grievous #36 (Exploding Body).  Looking at some of the pictures that have shown up online, I don't know that I'm overly impressed....and I've read some comments that he is quite unstable once you 'splode him once.  For those of you who have found/have him, what do you think of the figure?  I already have the preview and first basic carded ones, and I'm not sure if I want to have a Grievous Army like I do Jango and Maul armies ;).

Uh, is there some reason I would...? (No spoilers, please)


I also definitely don't want the BARC, and I think the AT-RT stinks.

Well, do you open your stuff Ook?  Do you like well sculpted/articulated figures?  It's 100% better than the SAGA version... That's reason enough for me!   :)

Here's a pic of her in one of my photonovels... so much better than the SAGA version -



Mosnab... I love the exploding Grievous... mainly for his awesome cape.  Here's a photonovel pic of the cape on the 4-arm Grievous -
