I'm in love with the Gollum mini fig

The junk that the Target I frequent doesn't sell for $9 or $10 a piece so being "forced" to buy two figs for $6.75 or $7.50 a piece doesn't make me think much of it is going to go anywhere because of this sale. Hope I'm wrong.

With how difficult it has been lately to find anything, I find myself not even caring if I find the new CW stuff. Maybe if there was a brand new character in one of these waves, but right now I'm glad to still have the cash I would have spent if I saw them. I just want to find the Vintage line stuff.

Details man!  From where and for how much?

Brian's Toys. I paid $50. Based off of Ebay "buy it now" pricing, not that they are necessarily selling for those prices, but oh well, I felt it was an ok price and I wanted to add at least one carded "Ewoks" fig to the collection since I added my first carded "Droids" a couple weeks back. I was quite happy with the shape of the thing. Yellowing bubble, small crease in right upper corner and small ding in lower right corner, but otherwise really nice card.

I was worried my online purchase could start a bad trend since I never order stuff online, but the wife was home when UPS showed up so that probably won't be happening again.

Picked up an Ewoks carded Urgah Lady Ganeesh.


Unlike Pete, I have a wife who would probably as soon divorce me as allow me to travel to FL to buy stuff like this.  :-[

My head almost imploded when I thought about what it would be like to tell my wife I was going to do what Pete did.

Nick, I have been seeing coupons for free shipping from Brian's Toys for purchases over $60 (coupon code: google).

I appreciate everyone's two cents. For reasons I won't get into I'm really just looking for something like Brians Toys (I know they are a rip off) where I can just see a figure at some set price, enter my cc number into a secure link and have it shortly thereafter. So it's not looking good for my wants.

Thanks again.

Thanks guys.

It's official, Pete is the undisputed King Of All Star Wars collectors. Your dedication is inspiring, brother.

Completists Uber Alles!

I have to second that motion.

Our one rat Lenny has been on drugs to help his breathing for about a month. Yesterday he was not eating and looking bad. At about 10 p.m. he was barely moving and when he did it was like he was bouncing around. So we made the trip to the emergency vet. By the time we were filling out the paperwork he died in his cage. Can't imagine suffocating to death. Poor guy. At least now he can play with his sisters that went before him.

Miss ya Lenny.

Are there any reputable web sites other than Brians Toys that sell carded Kenner stuff?

I don't think she would have the same appreciation for them.  We did have Han and Leia cake toppers at our wedding though.  I used the figures from the POTF2 Princess Leia collection.

We used the same Leia and a Vintage Han. One of my wife's bridesmaids was horrified. B$t*h.

I saw R2-D2 at Source Comics today but it was $80.  I thought about buyingit but I wanted both droids at once.

Is that the store by the fair grounds? I'm tempted now. Dang you!!!  ;)

It's still there and 20% off for FCBD.

Stopped in Sunday. Didn't see it. Asked about it and one of the guys said he remembered someone buying it on Saturday. Oh well. Probably a good thing I didn't start my way down the slope.
