Personally I'm a little surprised that the news of the NFL team 3-packs has just slipped in under the radar.  I really like the idea, and the player selections are pretty cool.

Here's my current ROTJ list...

-Kedin Yuru-Grey Leader
-Luke Skywalker - Endor Gear (super articulate w/ soft goods)
-Princess Leia Organa - Endor gear (super articulate w/ softgoods poncho)

-Emporer Palpatine - Softgoods, SA, with cane, force lightning & throne
-Imperial Gantry Droid (seen behind Moff Jerjerrod & Imperial Officers in the right side of this image)

-Hermi Odle
-Weequay-Skiff Captain
-Sergeant Doallyn
-Ishi Tib

Happy to say that I found the new wave this morning, and it was pretty much without incident.  I had planned on going to 6 WalMart's today, and it was at the first one I hit.  NICE!

Definitely liking the Darth Maul.  Excellent pose.

Also got notification that SWS is shipping the MBNA C-3PO's.  Good news all around.

I've been doing the autograph collecting thing for a while.  A couple of the signing opportunities have been somewhat impromptu.  In one case James Earl Jones was signing at a Verizon store in Harlem.  He was just doing a publicity appearance since he's the main spokesman for Verizon.  So a couple of Star Wars fans come in and ask for autographs.  His response?  He was actually very kind and very accomodating.  So now I have his auto on a photo and a POTF2 CommTech Vader.

There's definitely not any kind of "trick" for getting people to sign.  Just be nice to them and they may very well be accomodating.  Start getting pushy and they may respond in kind.

BTW, cool opportunity for you Darth Gamboa.  I haven't heard of any convention appearances by John Ratzenberger.  Probably because he works on a steady basis.  Those Pixar movies are also pretty lucrative, and his "Cheers" residuals are probably quite substantial.

These bidders are nothing but impatient idiots.  I can't believe that there are still people willing to pay so much for a figure that's going to be widely available at retail.

There's also the matter of a rumored Saesee Tiin one as well.  Uggghhh.  I'm unwittingly building a fleet.

Bearded Sentry does look much cooler.  I opened the regular so far, but no the variant.  I've got to read the comic that came with him just to catch up on who the character is.

I also put together most of Giant Man.  Thing is he looks like some kind of an amputee without his right hand at the moment.  Gotta find Thor!

You don't have the BAF Apocalypse Scott?  That seemed strangely absent from those pics.  But that is definitely a very good ML collection!

Ahhh!  Thank you Scott!  So is it safe to surmise that a duplicate part that comes with both Sentry and the Sentry variant?  But I still need Thor to complete it.  Drat!

Updating this want list a bit...

old school gold Iron Man - think this might be a variant in a future wave
Scarlet Witch
She Hulk (w/ FF variant)
Black Knight

Storm - original costume
Beast - X-Factor minus blue fur
Cyclops - X-Factor
Jean Grey - X-Factor
"Days Of Future Past" gift pack w/ Wolverine, Colossus, Rachel Summers, Kate Pryde, Franklin Richards, Magneto
Logan - A better street clothes version.  The first one stunk on ice!
Wolverine - with bone claws


Thanos - Marvel Select
Crimson Dynamo
Titanium Man
Sebastion Shaw
White Queen - Kinda sorta done by Marvel Select
The Blob

Well, this morning I'll be picking up almost the entire Giant man wave as the result of a trade.  I'm curious to see which Giant Man parts each figure has.  I already got Sabretooth which comes with Giant Man's left foot.  I'm getting the entirety of the rest of the wave except for Thor.  Now from what I understand one of the variants has an essential piece of Giant Man.  Not sure if it's Sentry or Wolverine.  Guess I'll find that out later, and find out which piece has the duplicate Giant Man part.

Has anyone verified which figure comes with which BAF part?

Collecting karma pays off!  A buddy of mine scored me the entire Giant Man wave minus Sabretooth (which I already have) and Thor,  and even got the Sentry variant.  Trading pays off!

Maybe, maybe not.  Depends where it goes, what your connection speed is and maybe whether you're a hyperwaste member or not.   ;)

Considering how much a Hyperspace membership costs, and that cost relative to what this piece is fetching on ePay, it would be an absolute BARGAIN to get the Hyperspace membership and pay $50 or whatever for the bust.

Patience is a virtue.  Just wait.

Yeah, it should settle out to around $400 or so on ebay given time :P

eBay?  We don't need no estinkin' eBay!
