Kenner Retro Collection / Re: 3rd Party Kenner Retro-Style Toys

Oh cool, I'll keep an eye out.  I'm not familiar with them but I'm definitely curious to see it.

I'm waiting for them to get here, but I ordered Paploo and Weechee from ProCustomFigures recently.

Pulse just charged me for all this stuff... Luke, Cassian, Vel, Klatoonian, 2 Artillery Troopers and Cal Kestis. 

Amazon is still showing May and July deliveries, but I bet it'll be sooner.

I always just order anywhere I can get free shipping, in this case Pulse and Amazon.  Whoever ships first gets the sale, the other one gets canceled.

I got a bunch of emails from Pulse yesterday that Cassian, Artillery Trooper, Vel, Cal, Imperial Cruiser Luke, and the Klatoonian are all shipping soon.

Iím just going to say itÖ Grogu should have stayed with Luke and Mando should be on new dangerous quests without simultaneously babysitting a little green kid. 

Felt to me like they probably were going to have that happen and then changed it so Grogu stayed because they were scared to have the show move forward without the ever so popular Baby Yoda in it. 

Feels like a business decisionÖ

Filling gaps in my vintage collection is going to be a point of emphasis for me this year... Other recent adds...

TIE Fighter


Custom Canceled Droids Figures:

Well I ordered six of these... four shipped, the other two are delayed.  Of the four I got, I got 3 different colors and a duplicate of the one with the yellow head.

Iím into the retro figures for Indiana JonesÖ unlike Star Wars I donít have any of the vintage ones and always wanted them, so this might be a happy, inexpensive medium if they make them all. 

Still disappointed that thereís no modern 3.75Ē continuation.   :-\

Yeah, tons of Toy Tony stuff was graded.  That was a big part
of the drama.  If AFA canít tell, how can anyone else?

To me that should have been the death of AFA but what do I know.

Iíd read about this oneÖ sealed cases apparently. After Toy Tony, Iím skeptical of anything like this at this point, but if itís real itís amazing for sure. 

Also, this is in Chicago, why wasnít it me who found themÖ  :'(

Not much has changed for me.   

I'm still 100% in on 3.75" Star Wars / Hasbro.

I've been making a push to fill gaps in my Vintage Kenner collection.  I bought a few mini-rigs, an A-Wing, and a TIE Fighter in the last month or so.

I've also started adding custom vintage style figures, mostly Stan Solo things.  I'm not interested in hand painted / 3D printed items, but if they're factory produced and look good, I want them.

I still collect Gentle Giant Mini-busts, but I just added a 10th Detolf to the basement and I don't think I have room for an 11th.  In a year or two I might have to start downsizing there or being clever about where to put them.

I still collect OT Lego, just OT there.

I ditched ReAction figures a few years ago and never looked back, the 450 or so figures I have sitting around are probably going on eBay over the next few weeks.

Apparently these are finally shipping.

For me it's not that it can't hold the gun, it's that it keeps dropping it when I try to put him in the rack.  It took some work, but I did get them all open and set up today.  Going to have to rearrange some things to get them onto the shelves this weekend:
