Not very exciting, but I took an original ESB card, original Bossk and gun and resealed it with a current Vintage Collection bubble. Not super pretty, but gets the job done for a fraction of the cost.

Cool idea.  Do you have a picture to share?

If I were you, to be sure, I'd send an email to "" right now, and let them know you just bought a Premier Guild membership, and want to preorder the SDCC Jumbo Blue Snaggletooth.  And ask them to email you as soon as you are eligible to make that purchase as well.

Might not make any difference, but then again, it couldn't hurt either.

Also, I know I mentioned this before, but make sure you get that free one time promotional code (in email) to get your free gift for signing up.  And one of those is the Jumbo Gamm. Guard. 

I emailed them yesterday.  They'll probably be manually emailing a lot of people tomorrow.

I signed up a month or so ago.  Your membership is manually processed, so should happen sometime on Monday and you should be all set.

As I understand, you would need to be present at SDCC to order one of these, right?  I have the membership, but not going to the Con - can I still get one?   :-\

*EDIT* NM - just placed my order.   8)

Thanks for the info guys.  I sure hope they intialize my membership before the blue Snaggletooth pre-order sells out.  Hard to believe it has to be setup manually.

I signed up for the Premier Guild Membership an hour ago.  Does anyone know who long it takes for new memberships to become active.  I can't wait to order the blue Snaggletooth.

Joe Colton is already out?  And the black Cobra Commander is the rare one?  I've seen at least a dozen black ones, but not a single blue one...

The Cobra Commander figure that comes in blue is supposed to be the standard for Wave 1. I'v only seen one of the black variants and one Joe Colton. I'm sure the Colton figure will be widely available in later waves. But it looks like Hasbro did release him as a rare figure to pick up within the first Wave.

Was Joe Colton found at a retail store?

GH is reporting the latest Insider confirm Jumbo Gonk for Q4

Thanks for the news.  That is my all time favorite action figure from when I was a kid and still to this day.  I can't wait.

That's cool.  Anyone here have there collection displayed on one of those racks?

I have a MOC R2-D2 and C-3PO that my dad saved.  Of course my mom cut out the upc for the Boba Fett but I still have them with a hole in the back.  Every other Star Wars toy from my childhood was sold around 1988.

Found this site today and I took a big trip down memory lane.

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.

Nice buys.  Thanks for sharing. 

All this vintage talk and sharing makes me want to dig out my MOC collection that has been unseen since I bought them in the early 1990s.

Picked up the Chewie today for 50% off at Gentle Giant's website... couldn't resist at that price. There are so many others that I'd like; Fett, Jawa, R2, Vader, Hammerhead, Greedo, etc., but I'm mainly holding out for Yoda and maybe a power droid.

That $40 Chewbacca is tempting.  How much was shipping? 

Are they skipping Power Droid?  I sure hope not.  That was my all time favorite figure when I was 4.

Ok, I looked over what else is coming out and I think Greedo, Hammerhead, Death Star Droid and Walrus Man are on my list. 

Oh, and I missed Sand People and Jawa too. 

Not really sure I will ever buy the human characters at this scale.  Mostly just the aliens.
