The Legacy Collection / Re: Vehicles: Do You Buy Them?
« on: September 3, 2008, 02:14 PM »
I've bought every new vehicle, repaint, resculpt to come down the pipe in the new era. Up until last year I've purchased a second sample of each when packaged in a window box, or with figures. The sheer volume of product that's been coming out and the price that comes with it has forced me to cut back on that mint in box collection. Still, I never pass up an opportunity to pick up a "fleet" vehicle discounted at 75% off.

What's supposed to fly, I hang up, older sculpts (small wing ties, vintage x-wings...) go into storage. For land vehicles I have 2 dioramas going, Battle of Hoth and a non-cannon Seperatist/ Republic battle, I also have a couple of mini scenes as well. What doesn't fit in these are put in storage. I have to admit that prequel battle is getting pretty crowded.

Quite a bit stuffed in there.  Is that ATT the same repaint that's coming out in a few months?

Looks like the paint job is just different enough...

I found wave 3 yesterday at Wal-Mart, passed on the AT-AP, is it different in this wave? I assumed the ARC-170 was the same as as the earlier one so I passed, gotta go back and check now.

A buddy went to the recent Comic Con and picked me up a Gift card. It was worth $75.

Ordered "Sculpting a Galaxy" hardcover, a 12" figure stand and one of those 12" gray female art models. Gonna use that for my other Ventress head.

Wasn't entirely painless, still had to pay 14 bucks for tax, shipping and handling.

WARNING: I found this out the hard way - save your points for cheaper priced items, not expensive items!  When you use points on an order, you don't collect ANY points for the remaining purchase price.  I used my points on the Clone Wars Obi Wan to save a few bucks, but now I'm not getting any of the points for him and he's worth quite a few.  You're way better off collecting points on the big tickets, then using them on something smaller.

Woah, I had no idea about that... Thanks.
Yeah lol.
And I only have like 150 points so thats not that much i think.

Take your points and divide them by 20 and you'll see your discount. Be patient, I'm getting my Rebel Fleet Trooper for $13.78, that's with tax, S&H.

I got one of these and it loks great with my Sideshow Sith Apprentice Vader (Annakin).

But wouldn't you know SWS came out a little later offering the Shocktrooper! But I just couldn't afford both.

Well the Shocktrooper was offered at half price last week, but I'm still recovering from July 26th so I had to pass, besides SWS is blocked out here at work.

Well my buddy (who actually brought that to my attention) went ahead and ordered it for me saying that all the stuff I'd picked for him in the past more than covered it!

Got it Wednesday, looks great next to Sideshow Emperor!

Anybody else got a story where you were surprised by someones generosity?

I picked the BMF at Wal-mart and the rest of the vehicles at TRU, got 3 free Holo Grievous'.

No A-wings here, but i did pick up a B-wing at my TRU.

That biker scout is Nik Sant in disguise, helmet comes off.

Yeah I'll be hurtin' especially if the B-wing comes out too. I'm hoping those are Type-os.

Ayla looks great! Her top is a little oversize but it does a good job hiding the articulation point. Other than that, nice figure.

Got my shipping notice, 'says I'll get it tomorrow, but I find it hard to believe that I'll have her before the CC.

Got the latest Entertainment Earth catalog that showed an upcoming wave 4 with a Cylon Basestar (new series), E III Jedi Starfighter with Hyperspace ring, Bongo, Sebulbas Pod Racer, Death Star and Tie Fighter.

Website has it up for preorder.
