At this point I can't say I really want to see any repacks, so much that I can;t even bring myself to offer any suggestions.

Since they've been doing it quite a bit , I feel more and more "cheated" by Habro than anythign when they bring the repacks out.

I'd have to say Target, followed by (imagine this) Kmart.  TRU and Wal-mart have been pretty poor at keeping things on the shelves lately. 

Also, in my area I think Wal-Mart and TRU seem to have the scalpers working there more so than Target.

Fun time as always, just a few pics up on:

501st wer in attendance, not as much vintage as usual, I think much of the vintage has been picked over through the years.  Now a lot of more "affordable" stuff has been gone.  More high end or pricey stuff.  Vintage boxed Skiff in great condition for about $450.

I grabbed:
*SDCC Yoda .45 scale saber and the 3 latest star tours figs from a fellow PSWCS'er. 
* A Saga Padme $5
* A tri-0logo Nikto card is unpunched and in great shape, bubble slightly "pushed in" at 2 corners - $15
* OTC Luke Bespin w/star case $12 (yes I bit the bullet)
* Luke Hoth and Slave Leia fig/cup sets $10ea.

That's about it.  Nothing real spectacular this time around.  Nice to hang with Jesse as always, drinks/food after was fun, hung out with some guys into the eve. and golfed Sun AM as well.  Great weekend.

POTJ Duros was the fig most seemed to recieve as the free figure for attending.
* New Unleashed was about $25+, older Unleashed were all over the board, Yoda was about $90.
* New basic figs were about $10+ for the most part, I think charred Anakin was a bit higher.
* I choked when one vendor wanted $35 for the OTC Vader, and $35 for the Luke Bespin.
* New clone 3 packs were about $25+ (I think I saw a set for about $20
* I noticed some 12" (common) prices seemdd to jump, they used to have a bunch for about $12+ now seemed common 12" were about $20+.  Saga 12" Padme $50, Anakin $40 *GASP*
* Not as much modern stuff as usually is being scalped in the area.
* SDCC Leia figs were about $25+
* one vendor had ROTS, Batman, War of the World bootlegs all about $10ea.
* of note, BK toys varied in price, but some vendors had the BK toys for about $2-$3ea. some like the Maul were $5, Fett was $7, Vader $10.  A few full sets were floating around, but again not as plentiful as I expected.

I think it's more of a good sign that Hasbro and other vendors maybe hadn't flooded the market this go-round like the last two movies ?  I don;t think it's a sign of demand slowing or anything, becasue I've seen more SW collectors, and more SW talk than ever at the show.

About the best recap I can give, should have written some prices down.

They gave the POTJ Duros out as a free figure to the first "X" amount of people in the door.

Not sure if EVERYONE got the same fig, but a bunch of us got him.

Holy! So your da big winner on that fine proto skiff.  8)

Congrats, I had that in my watch list to see what it would go for and I'm surprised it did not go for more.

Post some pics if you can when you get it.   :)

Thanks!    I know it's missing a railing(don't see that trememndously hurting the auction any), but still was also shocked to get it.  The regular common(albeit HTF) production skiffs go for more than this.

Pics- Will do.  Once I get it I'd like to get a clear plastic case for it.  I'm wondering if one of those $9.99 clear cases used for footballs will work, maybe put something small to prop in on inside.

Thanks!  Yeah I was kinda shocked, but with it going off at 10AM on a Wed. I didn;t get that either.  I'm guessing ending it Sun night would have gotten waaay more than it did.

I haven;t seen the tarkin wve either

I think one or two of the newer PA Star Wars Collecting Society members will be there too, should be thier first go-round at a toyshow with us.

Hope they are up for some brews...and I hope they have the raspberry brew this time around.  ;^)

See you there!  Vaughn is staying, so if you want to head back to the house on your way home for a few drinks, feel free!  Unfortunately I won't have my vintage prototype Skiff in time.

I'd love to get that Jedi Mickey. I've been in love with my sons plush Jedi mickey since he got it in May. I'd love to be able to add him to my SW collection at some point. Any idea if this 2 pk. can be found online anywhere ?

I tried to get the Vader Mickey-no go, tried to get the 2004 Jedi Mickey plush (2004 foot tag) no go.

Was able to get the common Jedi Mickey plush.  Same one as the 2004 without the foot tag I beleive.  Sigh, really wanted the Vader Mickey it's insane on ebay right now.

Also, when I talked to Disney they said the 2 pack wouldn;t be avail until Fall, but not to expect until possibly around X-mas.  ??

Mine doesn't really look like any of the 3 mentioned.

Mine almost looks like the mouth is painted slightly giving it almost an opened look. Also my neck is painted so much better than any shown.  It's a nice black "wash" that really gives the neck a lot of detail.

I actually like the paint on mine much better than the 3 listed.  weird.  Also, this is a freaking GREAT I mean GREAT figure.  Just awesome.  The mechanical hand sculpt is wonderful, only wish they did klind of a black wash or had a little black paint on it for a little detail, but thats really being picky.

Got a pretty nice piece today...thought I got one heck of a deal on it too!!!! :^)
Odd that it went off on a Wed. morning, I'm shocked I got it at that price, no snipers at 10AM Wed morning.

ebay # 5988446732

I also bid on the unproduced Jabba copper mold they had at CIII also, but at about $150ish it didn't meet the reserve.

I'll be there Sat. around 8AM as usual, hit the show, hang out for a few hours, and we'll probably start to head on over to John Harvards for a few drinks around 11:00ish.

Usually everyone starts showing up around then, and then one by one the guys join us as they finish thier "shopping".

Also, Vaughn and I are heading to Tom's Run to squeak in 18 holes Sunday Am if anyone wants to join us!!!! :^)

Also, the 501st will be there, and the first 1,000 people in the door will get a free SW action figure.

(hey, even if it is an EPI Jar-Jar, hey...its SW and it's free!)

Yeah, that was a FC/shopsw item.

I actually LOVED everything about these and absolutely had to get a set.  They are very nice pieces and somewhat of a "sleeper" item IMO.  They are very heavy, I beleive handpainted.  Display VERY well.  They actually kind of have an older "antique" look to them.  All 3 are great, really like the Fett.

Limited out of only about 4,000 sets, and I'm sure some only picked out the one/ones they wanted, so you have to figure there are far fewer complete sets out there.

Both were non-existant in my parts, I lucked out and happend to stumble upon one of each at an out of the way "We're Entertainment" store back in the day...didn;t know they even had figs, they were on a low corner peg, darned near didn't see them.

Never saw them again, and still don;t see many at the toy shows.
