The Vintage Collection / Re: Big Items of the Future!

I seem to be in the minority here, but I would much rather get a complete vehicle than a playset. Probably because I don't do diorama like displays.

Snowspeeder coming today from Amazon two days after shipping.
Carbonized Fett hitting 14 days since it shipped from EE. Says it's in Indiana (I'm in MN).
Han in Carbonite hitting 11 days since it shipped from Pulse. Says it's in Ohio.
I know I paid for cheap shipping, but it feels ridiculous to me. As a (mostly) opener I will choose Amazon almost always. Realizing that they don't always get stuff as soon.

I'm 42. Been playing with or collecting 3.75 Star Wars pretty much since I was born. Buy dumb variations your average person wouldn't notice. Etc.

With a few exceptions (source material I love with no other option) I won't touch anything non Star Wars that isn't 5 inches or bigger. Not sure what that means exactly, but I think it says something.

I don't think it's apples to apples.
$500 vs $350
Vehicle vs figure
Really big vs big
No secondary market data vs knowledge that you could have bought two barges from Haslab for price of one now.

That being said you are kidding yourself if you don't think this speaks volumes to where the SW and Marvel toy collecting communities are respectfully.

I'm certainly not absolving Hasbro's decisions over past X years when it comes to SW but I hope this makes some of the loudest yellers think a little.

This Sentinel is like the 3rd or 4th version of him/it. We can't even get our community to spend full retail on brand new vehicles that are really well done (tank, troop transport, etc).

Certainly gives me some perspective.

There are plenty people "army building" this too. I've read numerous people getting 2 or 3 or 4.

I've received Kenobi, Anakin, and the BD from Amazon. Missed Plo Koon and Fisto so still waiting on Pulse and EE individual orders on those.

Hasbro Pulse charged me for this last week, but they still haven't shipped.  Strange!

I was charged for Han block last Friday and just got shipping notice this morning so hopefully this will work the same for you.

Is this Vader the same as the Vader coming in the 40th ESB wave 3?

I see my CC was charged on Friday, but still no shipping notice......

Long shot/wrong thread

But anyone ever happen to have one of these? Wondering how it looks just as a display piece. I'd like to have more than just my mini die cast one and Action Fleet is too expensive. Thanks.

Almost skipped this set. Glad I didn't. Very cool. Keeps me at 100% on the 40th Anniversary packaged 6" stuff too.

I've only paid about $20,000 each for all my beltless figs.....

That Luke's Original is possibly my new favorite title for a listing and then you add the price. Top notch.
