hmmm, what are the odds Hasbro ever makes either of these guys in the 6" Black Series line?  ???

I feel like I had better pick these up just in case.

Grabbed myself Enfys Nest today for $5 at Kmart using a $15 free points on $15 purchase.  The set was already on sale for $18.99 so it was roughly $5 for a cool little Speeder and figure.  Wish it had a stand for the bike but such is life.

I got the Han speeder for fairly cheap a week ago or so because it was on sale too and I used some of my accumulated expiring points.  So I have the shipís.  I also got some Hoth renels betwern two stores for free paying with just points so thereís that too.

I have a $7 on $7 points coupon Iím gonna use on a Paige figure Friday before the sale expires and the coupon starts.  I wanted an extra of her but she disappeared locally fast.

Should have posted my other post here...

I found the two new 2-packs in a Walmart in VA while passing through on Friday - Rebolt & Hound and Han & Chewie.

On a side note, please move/remove if this is not appropriate; doing a little promotion for a indigogo project I think is cool...

If you're not familiar, this guy makes accessories/set pieces for 3.75 inch figures, mostly. Some 6 inch. Up until now, everything has been cast in resin, he's trying to move to plastic, thus the campaign. I've bought his Rebel sled and Imperial Computer consoles and I love them. Will be buying the Tantive IV and Imperial Walls at some point. For this, he's starting doing boxes, crates and landing bay lights.

Over the past couple of weeks I picked up the wave 2 2-packs (Mimban Han & Chewbacca, Rebolt with Corellian hound), as well as the new Vader and the FO Stormtrooper Officer. 

I noticed that the plastic on these new figures seems pretty soft.  It was especially noticeable on Chewbacca.  Oh, and the cage for the Corellian hound?  Wow, that was a PITA to assemble!

Not really the idea of this thread, but call me a sucker for customs that Hasbro will never make. Greedo just for scale.

Thatís really awesome Nick.  Cast in resin or all just sculpted and sold?

Cast in resin. Looks like two pieces where the "plating" meets the rest of her body. Not spot on but certainly close enough

Agreed, that is sweet! Would love a figure of her in any scale...

Keep an eye out on Ross, I found in two different stores the Rebolt/Hound 2 pack for $9.99. In one store I also found the Royal Guard single pack figure for $4.99. All those figures Target never got had to go somewhere...
