Did you notice how beat up the cardback is and is that a bit of a ding/edgeware on the lower left under the tape/bubble hinge?

That is just awesome.

You gotta love this nutjobs that pay incredible amounts of money for pure crap.  At least the reserve was never met.

You are never alone when there's a clone.

Well, I have a variation Meena Tills.  Not that I usually go this route, but it's going to ebay.  I'm trying to build up my Paypal account to buy some more stuff from www.owenscustoms.com.

I guess we should mention the running change to the #28 Anakin figure, who now has red Sith eyes, instead of those hideous raccoon eyes that he originally came with.  Nice correction there by Hasbro, as this version looks much better.

I don't see the blue one anymore.  I only saw that one at the beggining.  Nowadays I only see the green/brown/grey one.


Anyone have a link to a decent comparison shot of these two Vulture droids together, so I can show a buddy of mine exactly which one I need (green)?

I've been lucky enough to get both.  I'll go dig them out of storage and take a pic...

Here we go:



As you can see, I had to get a US packaged one for the blue version - it wasn't available in good ol' Canada.    ::)

It was reported waaay back in June...


has anybody here spotted the meena tillis variation / error reported about on the rebelscum main page? by variation, i mean the light cream colored face version. just wondering if this is a widespread variation or some kind of unintentional production error where only a small amount leaked out.

Here's the pictures to back it up:

I have one.  It was acquired for me by the wife, she said it looked different than the other one so she got it.

I'm hearing rumors of a variation in the Anakin Evolution set. Something about painted/unpainted scars on the ROTJ anakin head. Can anyone confirm this?

I haven't seen the variation yet, but a friend at www.coreplanets.com claims to have the scarred version (mine does not have a scar).  He's an honest guy so I see no reason to not believe him.

Can anyone confirm that there are 2 versions of the Red Royal Guard??

Shiny helmet/dull helmet???

Or is this just another "made up variant"?

Oh by the way, this is my first post here. There seems to be more ROTS collectors here than ANYWHERE!  ;D
