Bump. Price lowered for the whole lot. Please make me some offers. Someone's got to want this stuff. Thanks again for looking!

   I picked up the Vader and Bow set along with the Emperor and Thire set this evening. I could have bought four or five of each set if I had wanted to. I decided to stick with just Thire and Bow because I do not really like the Hasbro-invented paint jobs; with the purple clones being the worst paint scheme. I have only opened the set with Bow so far, and I am very happy with it. Two super articulated and well detailed figures for ten bucks is a steal. 

In the movie Neyo's wingman had no binoculars. There was (or looks to be) a clone corpse on the ground with the binoculars on the helmet. Perhaps that clone died because of a crash involving riding a speeder while using binoculars?

   Well, I bought and opened two sets today, and I couldn't be more pleased with what I purchased. The bikes are cool, and go nicely with all of the clones in my collection, especially the Elite Corps troopers. It's always nice to have more vehicles for the clones.
   The BARC troopers in this set are very cool. Neyo looks exactly like he did in the movie. The removable harness is also a nice touch. As for the BARC trooper with the binocular visor device, he is also very nice. I know I'm in the minority here, but I think the nonremovable binoculars look a lot nicer than the ones on Clone Commander and Bly; though an additional head with the binoculars in an up position would've been nice. One thing I'm confused about is why that clone would be using binoculars while he's riding a speeder bike. Isn't that somewhat dangerous?

I got my stuff from my third trade with Roron Corobb. Everything arrived in spectacular condition. Jedi KnightMaster Corobb is a super trader and it's always a pleasure to do business with him.

I picked up two of those Treachery on Saleucami Battle Packs today at Wal Mart, and I recieved a Super Battle Droids and two Galactic Marines from a trade yesterday.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: TRU exclusive Bantha & Rancor?
« on: April 4, 2007, 10:24 PM »
   I'm planning to buy one of each variation to open. I don't mind the curly haired Banthas, and I think the different colored Tuskens are pretty cool. I doubt that all of Tatooines Sandpeople used the same exact colored cloth to make their clothes and stuff. I can also use more Tuskens because my Sand Troopers need something/someone to fight.

   That's interesting, Brian. One of the Wal-Marts in my area was loaded with basic figures on an endcap, along with many coin albums and Saleucami sets. I mean, loaded. At least twenty of each clone and many of the other figures. Of course, there was only one McQuarrie Storm Trooper which I now regret passing on. It's kind of funny how greatly Wal Mart stores differ from each other.   
   Anyway, here are some of my opinions on some wave one figures. Thus far, I have picked up three Galactic Marines, two Super Battle Droids, two Airborne troopers, and one Concept Art Storm Trooper. These figures seem to be the best of the wave, as well as the hardest to find. The Super Battle Droid is the best, and the flames are kind of cool. The clones are well done, and the removable helmets are a really nice touch. The concept Art Stormie is a vast improvement over the 2003/2004 version. It's amazing what some new paint can do to a figure.  Overall, Wave 1 seems like a very good wave and I cannot wait to pick up the other four or five figures.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: YOUR LOYALTY?
« on: April 4, 2007, 09:01 PM »
My loyalty is to Star Wars. If Hasbro chooses not to renew the license, then I would do one or more of the following:

-Continue collecting a new line of 3 3/4 inch figures if they are produced by a good company (Zizzle may be able to do a good job with Star Wars)

-Back track and buy items made from 1995 up until the Revenge of the Sith line. I wouldn't buy all items, just the stuff Hasbro hasn't remade between 2005 and 2018. 

-Track down Wizards of the Coast miniature figures and ships. Those little guys have always intrigued me for some reason, but they are kind of expensive.

-Buy Lego Star Wars items. I am really tempted by the recent offering from Lego (Battle Packs, upcoming MTT and Hoth Base) but have been holding off on them for now.

-Stop collecting altogether if I am happy with my collection by 2018. Maybe I will attempt to get MOC/MIP versions of all of my loose items. 

   I'm probably going to get this set, as the Battle of Geonosis and Arena Battle scenes were some of my favorites from the entire saga.
   I do hope that the three Arena beasts are included (Nexu, Reek, and Acklay), but this already seems very likely. I wouldn't mind seeing the Reek and Nexu being new with no electronics and articulation in the legs, but I'm not going to hold my breath. In addition to the beasts, I'd be happy with Padme, Obi-Wan, and Anakin with three pillars or 3-5 Sun Facs repainted as Geonosian Warriors.  One last item the would be cool to see is the sonic cannon that was supposed to come with the Arena Playset back in 2002.
   Overall, I'm kind of hopeful about this set and I am also very curious as to how it will look in its package.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Military Surplus Anyone?
« on: March 26, 2007, 10:55 PM »
   I have several small military related items, but they do mean a lot to me. My Grandfather served in World War 2, and several years ago, when I was 9 or 10, he gave me his five war medals. They are not major medals/awards or anything like that (Or at least I don't think they are) but they are important to me because he gave them to me out of everyone in my family. (I was, and still am, the third youngest member)   
   I'm not sure this is what you guys are talking about, but I just thought I'd add this to the conversation.
