Got arc welder Solo today for 4 bux and change with this Kmart coupon: . Unfortunately I just heard about it today. :-\

Prior purchases from this line have been Dengar (awesome!), Threepio, Cody and Jabba (!!! :D).

Outside of this line I also recently bought Resurgence and the Ultimate Sarlacc (thanks Ray!).

Mine finally showed up a few days ago... I think it's pretty awesome.

Nice pile of chubas Jabba's got there. I hung Gragra's chubas from the hookah. :D

Mucho positive feedback to Ray, Bobafett77, for hooking me up with a box set I was never able to grab at retail. He hooked me up with a MIB item at a really great price. I appreciate it very much; it's filling a hole in an area of my collection that needed attention! Hope I can repay the favor soon. I know Ray locally and he's always been great to talk to and deal with. Thanks!!! ;D

You can tell Hasbro is struggling with this because of the inconsistent placement, it is all over the place on every figure even the same characters.

Really? Example? ???

Series 2.

Do you have Kermit? Would you combine your Indy with Kermit to make an Adventure Kermit for me? I've been wanting to see that since Indy came out.


I agree of course that safety is important. I don't want children getting sick from lead paint or my dog dying from food tainted (deliberately by Chinese factories) with melamine. But as an adult who collects this junk this is just about the worst news since Hasbro started using crappy, gummy materials on items that should be rigid and retain their shape! >:(

I spotted TVC Cody at Walmart right when they started hitting. There was only one and because one of the first things I noticed was the stupid number stamped into his leg, I put it back hoping I could find one later that didn't have it. It didn't help that the leg was rotated slightly in the package making it appear that they went and did something inexplicable like putting in right on the FRONT on his leg. I waited to find out that everyone was finding the number stamp in the same spot before deciding to go and get the fig. Fortunately it's not right in front, but it's still damned ugly.

The black ones are much, much worse! WTF are they thinking? ??? The one on the back of "Rocket Firing Fett" isn't a deal-breaker for me because it's a novelty toy as far as I'm concerned. I'm just going to keep it on my desk and shoot the rocket for ***** and giggles. But I imagine some from our generation have been wanting this thing fiercely for decades, and probably find it a hell of a letdown. I would too if it were on any realistic style figure. I'm glad I don't want young Uncle Owen because that bull**** is a definite deal-breaker for me. Is it on Camie & Fixer too? ??? Because I was considering getting them. But not with black numbers in an conspicuous location, that's for damned sure.

This is terribly unacceptable to me. What the hell could possibly be preferable about a hideous black ink stamp on the OUTSIDE of a foot rather than a colorless stamped-in number someplace less conspicuous??? I hope this is a trend that does not continue. And thank you very much, JACKOFTRADZE, for brining it up. This **** is a real buzzkill. >:(

I remember hearing a little about this name origin before. Interesting indeed. I only recently learned that a dagoba or dagaba is a Buddhist shrine! ;D

Wow, distribution on this set was actually good in Chicago land. I came across it more times than I can count. It does sell well, but if I come across it again I can pick it up for you Sal, just LMK.

I would take you up on that. I don't have one yet.

Found one today.
