CIII Loot: What did j00 get?
« on: April 25, 2005, 07:01 PM »
There's a couple threads for the exclusives, but here you can list all your loot.

I got a few freebies:

Promo Attacktix Dooku
Miniatures Nautolan Soldier
Dark Horse poster of cover art from ROTS comic trade paperback
Vader poster from Dark Horse (got signed by Randy Stradley)
56-figure poster from Hasbro
a custom CIII poster made by a fellow poster from SW.com
Cingular Star Wars photo holder keychain
Pin from Del Rey Books with a picture of flying Yoda with lightsaber, captioned "Read, you will."

Books/comics:

ROTS Cross-sections (got signed)
New Essential Guide to Characters (got signed)
ROTS Comic (signed)
Clone Wars Adventures #3 (actually purchased at Borders downtown; when I made a purchase at the Borders booth in the convention the cashier gave me a 15% coupon that was only good at the downtown store.)

Other:

Applause sculpture of the Han and Jabba scene from ANH SE.
Pin of Episode I logo

3.75" inch:

I totally cleaned up on loose figures, for between $1 and $5 apiece. It was glorious--I saw multiples of figures I've wanted for years. For example, I'd been looking for a loose Prince Xizor for ages, and at CIII I saw at least a dozen. Oddly, most were missing his cloak, and I only found one that had the blue energy shield things. I bought that one and one missing the cloak.

In no particular order (all are modern era unless otherwise indicated):

1983 Vintage Jabba (only $5!)
SOTE Swoop Bike
POTF2 Chewie
CW Kit Fisto
Teebo
Tusken Raider from the POTF2 Bantha Set
1978 Vintage Hammerhead
1997 POTF2 Hammerhead
Snoova
Xizor with cloak
Xizor missing cloak
EpI Darth Sidious (non-holo version)
POTJ Jedi Training Obi-Wan, with dark clothes and visor
POTJ Gungan Soldier
POTF2 Sandtrooper
Tusken Female (my third copy of this figure)
SOTE Coruscant Guard Luke (after I bought it I noticed the helmet was missing, but it was still a damn good find for $1)
Imperial Advisor Janus Greejatus
Saga AOTC Jar Jar
R3-T7 from AOTC Sneak Preview
Greeata from Jabba's Dancers 3-pack
Sith Training Darth Maul (tan outfit)
EpI Senator Palpatine
POTF2 Admiral Ackbar
Salacious Crumb (1983 Vintage I guess)
a battledroid that comes in half with a magnetic connection at the waist. The dealer had a whole bin of these for $1. Back in the hotel room I tried him out and was very impressed with both the magnet and the fact that he actually stands up. I went back to the dealer for more but apparently someone else had the same idea since they were all gone. :(

Tessek (the only one I bought carded; $3 with slightly damaged card)


I'm sure there's a few more items that I forgot. As you can see, I didn't pick up any high-end or particularly rare items, but I wasn't planning to do so and I'm very pleased with what I got.

Here are 3 REALLY tough pieces:



The Hard Rock pin is limited to only 300 sold in 23 min. AT the Hard Rock.

The Titanium gold X-wing has "Indianapolis 2005" on each side of it (I heard 100 made, then I heard 250 later in the day???)

My Stormtrooper pin was #30 of 300 (numbered on the back lower right corner.

4 Vaders, 1 Plush Yoda (love that thing) and a MR FX Saber (E3 Anakin).

That was about it...  not counting free ****.  I did get 2 C3 posters too though.

Like the saber a lot, and Yoda.  Vader grew on me as a cooler toy than I thought with the base and all.

I'm glad to have this stuff...  The Yoda just is really neat considering everything. 

My favorite purchase though is 3 signed McQuarrie Concept Art prints.  1 from each film, and each are either iconic ones (in my view) or ones that meant something to me.

The ANH one I got was the duel in the streets of Mos Eisley.  Love that shot, and I think it's a very popular image with fans of McQuarrie's work.

The ESB one was the rebel soldiers wounded or dead in the trench with the AT-AT walking over the trench and the Snowspeeder smoking as it flies along.  The picture's important to me since I have such a military-focus with this hobby.  It's one of the gritty, realistic war images of the trilogy.

The ROTJ one I got is the conceptual drawing of the B-Wings flying away from the exploding destroyer they strafed.  Very nice picture, very iconic, and again a devastating picture of the "War" in Star Wars.  The shot being one edited out (all 3 are actually filmed in one way or another, and edited out) is pretty neat too.

Added Cingular Star Wars photo holder keychain to my list of freebies.

Darth Kenobi, how much was your SA Clone? I saw a few for 20 - 40 bucks.

How did you end up with those? Were they selling them there? Or giving them away? I asked the people at the booth about them, and they told me they would be out on 5/16 and they didn't have any to give out  >:(

What does the plush Yoda look like? Was it a previously released item? Anybody get the CIII lanyard or keychain?

Well, me and P'Dubbs found these 4 cases, against the wall all alone, unguarded. So we went over and started raiding the opened on, and getting what we wanted. Then a mess of people showed up, and it became a cluster**** of grabbing for toys, and I wound up with what I had. The 501st just kinda looked the other way for us. I took pics of the chaos. Expect them up later this week.

Yeah, I had to hide my stuff too, we left the hotel room, came back, and our blankets and bags were all over the place. Nothing was missing, we were just paranoid after. Maybe Matt heard I had more promo stuff than he did?

I'm curious to know what hotel keys everyone got.  I have two of the one with Vader and his cape flowing out behind him (like batman).  What did others get?  Mine were from the Marriott. 

I went nuts on the pins from Pin USA but haven't unpacked "that" bag yet, I know my mini saber is in it but I can't remember what else.

That's the one I got too, over at the Courtyard by Marriott.  No extras though.  They were actually selling them at the front desk too, for $5 a pop.

I like that one.  I just seen in the traders thread someone was looking for the one I have so I'll have to pm him and see if I can get a different one.
