Kubricks / Re: Recent Acquisitions

I finally took the Kubricks plunge today and bought the 2005 TRU Japan 5-pack.  It was just too cool to resist.

Tinally got a Titanium C-3PO today.  It was at a comic shop price, but this piece has been so scarce that paying another $7 for it seemed like it was saving me some time and trouble in finding it.

And here it's just barely below freezing but there's a nice coating of ice.  NICE!

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 30AC "Vintage" Figures Thread

Probably the best character for a height comparison in this image is Dengar, because he's only a foot or two closer to camera than IG-88.  The other Bounty Hunters are signifigantly closer so it would make it hard to compare their heights.  It looks like the top of Dengar's head should be about even with IG-88's shoulder if they were all standing on the same level.  I hope the figure is pretty tall as a result.  IG-88 looks almost Wookiee tall.

Hmmm.  I have two days off.  Road trip to Canada?  ::)

Last night I filled for $1.95 a gallon.  It's a little better than where prices have been, but it's still a ridiculous price for gasoline.

Check the card inserts.  You'll find some information on the bottom of them regarding manufacturing in the UK.

Scores like that don't happen every day.  The last time I made a score like this was Midnight Madness in 2005.

One thing about the arrival of those 30AC figures in eastern Canada makes me wonder, where do their figures come from?  I know that Hasbro does some manufacturing in Europe.  And it's been fairly well established that Europe is getting the first 30AC wave, too.  So I have to wonder if some of Eastern Canada is supplied by the European factories.

I believe that the North American sightings of the 30AC line have been in Canada so far.

Scored almost 2 full sets of these.  These are among some of the only TSC figures that I'll keep carded.  I got a complete carded set and 3 openers.  It's a novel wave, but I'm not terribly keen on buying most of these figures all over again.  At least it was somewhat easy to track down most of them in one shot.

I'm genuinely interested in seeing the difference between the original Kitik Keed'kak and this version.  I can easily recognize the different paint apps in the other cantina aliens.

Had a pretty decent score tonight. 

2 x Kitik Keed'kak
2 x Aurra Sing
2 x Nabrun Leids & Kabe
1 x Labria
1 x R4-M6
1 x Padme
1 x Yarael Poof
1 x Holo Obi-Wan
2 x R4-K5
2 x Commander Appo
2 x Elite Corps Clone
3 x Combat Engineer Clone Trooper


Looking forward to the morning when I'm a little more awake and I can open some of these.  I picked up a couple of extra things to help out some friends, but I really hope that the army builders don't go crazy on the Commander Appo's.  There's just no need, especially when there's a regular SA 501st Clone on the way in the SAGA Legends line.  Anyway, what are people going to do with all of those extra pauldrons?

Prices are starting to dip below the $2 mark in NJ again.  But just barely.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 2007 Rumors... Oh my!
« on: January 31, 2007, 11:24 AM »
I'm hoping it has 2 heads honestly...  I'd hate to hear the great debate and any anger/rage at the figure not being what people want...  That was suggested to Hasbro in a Q&A by the way, and they said it was "interesting".  Makes me wonder if they were just hinting at what they already knew or if they were shocked at the friggin' concept.

The body wouldn't need to change really, just needs 2 different heads is all...  Spirit of figures are so dull I really hope they don't milk this by leaving the option to do the "other" Anakin then.

I guess I could handle that since the Christensen character wouldn't be my first choice.

Hasbro mentioned in the Q&A sessions that if they would re-do the Spirit of Anakin Skywalker, that they would include heads for both Sebastian Shaw and Hayden Christensen.  Seems like that was a not-so-veiled hint.
