Hey Morbug, I'm about to move to Italy so I'm going to have to resort to ordering cases like that.  I've never had to order whole cases.  I don't know what I'm going to do w/ the ones I don't want like the lame repack of Anakin and Vader Hoth...  That case should have more of Cody!  Cody REALLY needs to be over packed.  Why doesn't Hasbro get it?  You could put 4 Cody's per case and still not have enough!!! ::)

I hope the TH gunship will be the CW cartoon paint apps!

Like this?

Looks like this 3rd wave is now being found in Asia...

Someone found them in Las Vegas!!!!† I'm freaking because these are coming out so fast!!!† I need a break or something...I'm starting to get tired of hitting stores.† Now I have the SAGA Hoth wave and all other Titanium ships but Wave 3 is out so it's back to the stores...† †:P

P.S. I really like the shuttle!  Movable wings!!!† :D

I keep finding stashed Bib Fortunas at my WM.  I don't have it but I get that "Bust the stash and buy it" feeling when I see it.  I don't like it but it's SO tempting....  I think I have a problem.   My wife "knows" I have a problem w/ Star Wars addiction... :P

Found a Wookiee Heavy Gunner in a return bin at Walmart for 4 bucks.† ;D

Awesome find!!!  I busted a stash last night and found some Hotwheels that might have been good or something...don't know, and I found (and bought) another AT-RT Driver for $4!   Wife gave me the old, "Do you REALLY need ANOTHER one?" thing but it's a trooper and he's Super Articulated so I got it! :D

I've been pondering putting some weathering on my custom Darktrooper but once I found an image of the actual thing I figured I didn't need to.† However (This is why I posted to this thread) I do think he could be a little glossy like the photo shows.† What would be the best way to make it look like shiny armor w/o turning it into a figure that's too shiny aka "candy apple" trooper?† Overdoing it would stink and I don't know how to fix it if I did...



Can I get a "Hoorah" for the Republic Attack Cruiser?† That thing is SO cool!† I have 3; one on my bedside table, one downstairs by the TV and one on my desk at work "flying" by the Diecast Death Star. :D

Just found another Republic Attack Cruiser (that's 3 for me) and a Death Star.† I also picked up Spudtrooper for a fried.†

I'm really looking forward to the following 3 inch Titaniums:
Imperial Shuttle
Darth Vaderís TIE fighter

Jedi Starfighter - IF it's a AOTC fighter (oh please, oh please)
Droid Tank

1978 Cylon Raider vehicle
2004 Scout ship vehicle
1978 Viper vehicle

Titanium LTD E3 Millenium Falcon

BG 04 Colonial 1
BG 04 Raptor
BG 04 Viper MK VII
TIE Interceptor

Lameness award = Battle Ravaged Millenium Falcon

Mystery Award =† 3Inch Titanium LTD Purple ?????

Question: Are the Jango Slave 1 and/or the ROTS Vulture Droid considered Treasure Hunts????

Picked up 5 SA Troopers and 2 AT-RT Drivers for $4 each at Walmart tonight!!!

I'm just glad I got the Boba Fett Slave 1 in the multipack.† I was really mad when I couldn't find it in wave 1.† †I opened my white TIE and it's really cool!† in general I don't like the "treasure hunt" idea at all!† It's way too much like the Hot Wheels Dork thing and I don't even like thinking about them.†

The White TIE is "nostalgia" to me because it reminds me of my 1st diecast ship from the 80s.† †I wouldn't have been bent out of shape had I not found it but that's just personal preference.† If they made "Raw Metal" ships as the "treasure hunt" vehicles it would be easier to accept.† However, the ROTS Falcon and any other ship that was in the films would freak me out if they made them Treasure Hunts.†

Just think if they made a Droid Control ship w/ ROTS markings a Treasure Hunt.† That would really make me crazy mad!!!† I hope they do make one because I'll need a couple to fight my Republic Attack Cruisers... 8)

The white TIE treasure hunt doesn't bug me because it's just nostalgia but the ROTS Falcon that is rumored to be the next treasure hunt does.† That is cool and it's a great connection to the old movies.† I know they are short packing it because it's just a repaint but not THAT one! >:(

Found the Slave 1, White TIE and ROTS Droid Fighter today at a MD Walmart.† †:)


I also picked up the Turbo Tank, Republic Attack Cruiser (only had it the wave?) and the ARC-170 and Tri-Fighter Ultras.

My problem is storage.† †I'm ALMOST glad the price went up.† I can't deal with a million clone troopers even though I'd like too... ;D† If the #41 trooper was plentiful and $2 a pop I'd have WAY too many...† this way it sort of keeps me honest.†

More to the point: I'm becoming more selective and the Carkoon wave drives the point home for me.† I think the wave sucks for the most part and it sobers me a bit.

Went to Target at the mall today at 4PM and they had some Palpatines, Nemoidian Warriors, Mon Mothmas, 2 Big Wing TIEs for ~ $28 and one lava Obiwan for ~$9.  No WAY would I pay more than $3 for a Lava Obiwan and even then I would think I was brainwashed for buying it in the 1st place.  I think it would be the "if it's Star Wars AND 90% off then I have to buy it even if it sucks" effect...

If it's the #6 shocktrooper then this set should prove to be a little easier to find... ::)
