    No questions, just outright refusal to have him there... matter of fact I am not allowed any SW items in my bedroom or the main floor of the house for that matter. :p

    Christina,
    I say you need some SW pajamas or at least a big night shirt with Obi Wan's face on it. LOL! :D

    Picked up the Die-cast Darth Vader at Target today for 15 dollars. They had 2 diecast Boba Fett's, which looked like they had better detail. I wanted that one more, but it was one vader and two boba's, I took the odd's that I might not find Vader again.

    Edited for spelling and to add that I picked it up at the Target in Florissant/Hazelwood on N. Lindbergh.

    What stores have the cheapest VOTC Figures? I think the cheapest I saw them over here was $9.99.

    You guys have probably seen the George Lucas in Stormtrooper disguise that's coming out. (I'm behind on my updates) It appears that you have to buy one of each of the new VOTC (5 of them) to send in for one George Stormie.

    That's gonna make it one expensive send in - $49.95 plus shipping (yikes!)

    I've got no problem getting a couple of the X-wing Luke, Endor Han, and the super articulated Speeder Bike Trooper. But I could do without an extra Tusken Raider or Greedo. Since I've got probably 10 of each through various incarnations. (gett'in really burned out on the rehashing of old figures)

    Tim, I really haven't seen anything around here. And I haven't seen any postings that encourage me to go out and buy either. The only thing I am really waiting for are the Galactic Hero's with TPM line coming out later this summer, oh and the FX Obi-Wan saber... :D

    I've seen the Maul/Obi pack, but not the others. If I see Obi again, should I grab one for you?

    I got mine too. I was impressed how fast it was this time. All total I think I spent under 10 minutes ordering.

    Oh so awsome!
    I did mine online and it was pretty painless. What time did they start to let us order? Cause I was home by 1230/1245 and that was just after 1030 Ca time and the exclusive was sold out.

    I wanted Mace but can only get right now 1 a quarter if they doo it like that since they are expensive but they look great.

    They started at 12:00. I didn't realize they sold out that fast. I was in at 12:05, and done by 12:15. I was really surprised to get in, because with the Obi figure it took me an hour to get in, but I still get both exclusives. And this concluded my buying spree...lol. :D

    Has anybody seen the 3 3/4" Commander Cody yet? I've seen the Coruscant wave twice, but have yet to see Commander Cody. I think my friendly neighborhood scalper has been at it again.

    Target seems to be putting the newest waves out sooner than other dept. stores lately.

    I haven't seen anything new in this area...and the Target here is just a wall of hangers. :(

    I haven't seen Cody, but if I do see one, I'll grab it for you. Mom managed to find me a Scorch (in DuQuoin, IL) so I'll have her keep her eyes peeled, too - somehow she seems to stumble across these things more often than I do. Maybe the scalpers aren't as active in rural IL...

    Is Scorch hard to find? I think I saw someone else say that in a different forum. I just saw a few him at the Target in Shiloh.

    If anyone is looking for him, let me know.

    Ok, I have a dumb question: My husband has been remodeling our basement. What this has done is left a horrible layer of concrete dust on my collection. Does anyone have a good idea on how I can get it out of the loose figures I have out? I have thought about putting them under running water to get it out of the cracks but I am afraid that may cause problems with the movement. Help? :D

    I've cleaned my figures before in dilute dish soap with no apparent damage. I haven't done rigorous testing, though.
