30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Completed bar pictues?

Out of interest where do the other pieces and the background come from?

I may have to get them via ebay?


Here in the UK we have to pay the same amount in 's as you pay in $.

With the exchange rate more or less 1 = $2 you can see why we are called Rip Off Britain!

As with wave 7 this looked great up close.

Can't wait to get my hands on it.

Mine arrived yesterday from R2Dtoys.

I'm very impressed with the entire wave with the exception of Biggs.  Maybe it's just mine but his feet are so curved that posing him is impossible.

I like it.

The facial sculpt looks very good and now that I've become a lose collector I'm looking forward to getting him in various poses.

Not overly keen on the belt though.

Over here in the UK Toys'r'us are still stocking the shelves with the Saga line but strangely ASDA (Walmart owned supermarket) have moved into toys and are getting the new waves in very quickly.

Guys, for the record I don't expect much to come of the "variation" on color there...  I don't expect anything to come of it, other than R2-DToys to have listed something that isn't really a story.  As was pointed out to me by our administrator, they were listing the clones as UGH then changed them...

Don't count on white Marines or 501st airborne or whatever...  I'd kind of dig that, but don't count on it.  Just interesting speculation to a little blurb that came up on their site.

I guess all will be revealed on 1-5-07 (5-1-07 for US based members) when wave 3 is scheduled to land on my door step.

I've had notification that my wave 3 will be with me in the next 7 days or so and interestingly it may be coming with a colour variant of both the Galactic Marine and Airborne Trooper

Tough one this.

None of the figures interest me *that* much, with the exception of Raven and maybe Grevious, but I *really* want to complete the coin album.

Not sure what to do to be honest................

Top Stuff

Wave 2 already, I just found the first wave. Where did you find them?

I'm Uk based and R2Dtoys tend to get figures in well before thier official release date.

Will post a picture as soon as I figure out how to do it.

Received my wave 2 yesterday and I was disappointed.

Han Solo - Nice detail, good articulation but Han looks anorexic and a tad lanky.

Rebel Guard - woeful figure.  Reminds of a 70's plastic solider.  Cheap and nasty.

Death Star Trooper - Ok sculpting, ok articulation but what do The Empire give thier men in way of vitamins?  This chap has a serious does of rickets and he looks ridiculous.

Luke Skywalker - I like this one.  Nice sculpting, some really nice detail and decent likeness.

Biggs Darklighter - The best figure in the wave but still Hasbro **** it up with the ROM of Bigg's right arm.

Concept Bobe Fett - love the two heads but thats about it.

Overall - not a single figure that I consider to be a must have or even decent addition to anyones collection.  Here's hoping wave 3 is better.
