Looks like tfaw is having a sale on Kotobukiya kits (25% off).  Thought some of you would like to know.  Here is the link to the Anakin:

I received the Kotobukiya C-3PO & R2-D2 set yesterday. I can say one word: AWSOME!! They are so cool and besides the great look of these iconic figures, I was amazed by the easiness in kit assembly, it took less than 1 minute to assemble the kits. They were really snap & fit. BTW both the droids heads can rotate. Every year Kotobukiya comes with better products. I took some pics:

I just used my galactic rewards through MBNA to nab  a Bly. This will be my first of these, but after seeing how nice your collections look, I doubt it will be my last.

My Bly showed up, and he looks cool (I haven't taken him out of the box yet). I'm worried about starting another habit, and I just cleaned house of a couple of incomplete lines.

If you are a completist you only can dream about having a really complete Koto collection. There are a few really rare and very expensive items (especially the 3 colored AOTC Clones). Better choose what you like instead of going for everything.

Nice Red Shock Trooper! I passed on it even with the great offer Toy Palace got. I don't collect PT.

On the other hand I'm a bit sad because at Toy Palace the Koto Slave Leia will arrive only in January 2007. But at least I'll get a free gift ;)

I have an ROTS Anakin for Sale --50.00 shipped.  The box  has a big tear in the front but the figure inside is still minty and NRFB. SO this would be for all you openers.

Also have a loose yoda- 30.00 Shipped Just been displayed- no box.


Need to dump this to make room for some of my other stuf

 :) it's been a while Kotos,have released thier last masterpiece.wonder what's thier next "creation" plan for them will be like?..Love to see them to release Grievous as been rumoured in thier listings plan.I am a clone / sith collector dude,and this cyborg is neither falls in these category,but due his superb 4 sabers displayed skills,hopefully his released is a confirmed for this year plan. Hasbro have him in 12",GG have him as well...bust,animated so does sideshow.. Lets do something for the SW galaxy collectors,Kotobukiya...Arigato..

Good job ... those are the same pics  from regular SW.com. ;)

The Koto stuff has been flying under my radar but the sheer awesomitude of this made me sit up and take notice. It's kind of weird seeing that familiar, iconic image translated into 3D, but it turned out rad as hell. Vader, in particular, rocks balls like no tomorrow.

I like that they "punched up" the colors a little, although Luke's saber would have been better as bright yellow or straight clear, instead of this sort of urine color.
