The Vintage Collection / Re: The Future of Star Wars Collecting?
« on: January 26, 2022, 12:18 PM »
I wonder how long the renewal is good for…

Received two of these today. I originally bought one at full price with the Creature set, but got another one when they went on sale for 20% off. I tried to cancel the first one but they told me they would have to cancel the whole order which I didn’t want to risk because the Creature set isn’t even listed anymore.

The Pit Droid is so cool.  :)

Yvette Mimieux…aka Dr Kate McCrae from The Black Hole. Loved her… :'(

I received my CC Moff Gideon from Best Buy today. It was a little banged up in the box but not enough to really worry too much about. Just glad to have something new for a change!

Dwayne Hickman.

Some of the Wave 3 Archive figures have started to resurface around here this week at Walmart. I saw 2-3 cases at one this morning and managed to get minty cards of all 4 new ones I needed, including the elusive Clone Trooper. They rang up at $19.97 each too. Glad I held off on ordering these all online now!

I’m not sure I love straight repacks of figures outside of the archive line, but I will bite on this one. Wish they had tweaked it even a little though.

Still mostly the same for me, thankfully I guess. My space crunch has somewhat stabilized, but I still have to be selective.

Star Wars Black Series - my main collecting focus, still maintaining a complete collection to this point.

Super 7 ReAction - I’ve managed to avoid the temptation of the Ultimates, but I still buy a lot of the little figures.

Marvel Legends - really got into this line more this past year, but mostly limiting my focus to comic FF figures and goofy one offs.

MISC - Lanard Space Troopers if they ever come out, the Final Faction stuff, any NECA The Thing figures, and those American Werewolf in London figures if they ever come out.

I finally watched it last night and liked it. I do agree with a good bit of what has been said already.

He should be more bad assed and ruthless for sure. The thing that was most puzzling was not disintegrating the churlish Mayor’s lackey. They should have sent him back in several small boxes.

I didn’t mind all the flashbacks really, but what bother me most was the writing in some places. For a dude that never talked, he talks too much now. The exchange about it being “weird” about accepting tribute from a former employer was an example.

I feel like the thing they really need to explain is how he got from pretty Daniel Logan to horribly scarred up Boba. He practically looked like Deadpool under there! And that would be all pre ROTJ assumably.

Anyway, the thing with Boba for me has always been the allure of mystery. The more they reveal about the character, the less fascinating he becomes. Same thing happened with Maul. But the series has all kinds of potential to be fun and entertaining though.

This is a really cool set that a lot of people will have interest in collecting I predict.

Watched it tonight…”he is so prolific!”  ;D

Whew, this totally slipped my mind earlier, but I just picked up two with Free Shipping - thanks for the tip on that. Looks cool enough that I will probably keep one to open.

This makes the 5th Gaming Greats figure I have on PO with them…be nice if they would start shipping some of these things!

I can’t stop hearing Billy Idol screaming in my head “it’s a nice day for a…White Wookie!”  ;D

I am a dope and love all of these, I’m all in…

No one on that SW Team deserves a promotion after the year they just had. They should be thankful they still have jobs.
