    Saw the repaints and sculpts at TARGET with the colectors tin. Very Dissapointed, looks like a 3 year old painted them.:_|

    Took a late lunch today and went by Wal-Mart (O'Fallon, IL) They have the Firgin Dan and the modal nodes set (in the collector's tin) on clearance for $8.00 That's like $1.60 per figure. Cheap, Cheap, Fun, Fun!!

    I already had one, but I picked up another to possibly open. Anyone still looking for this set?

    I don't think they will last to long at that price.

    Darn it. I was in Chesterfield today, and there were so many different stormtroopers/clones I couldn't remember which one you needed Tim. Do you want me to go back and pick up one?

    If they still have one, definitely pick one up for me. If I find him in the mean time, having two Appo's wouldn't be a bad thing.

    Thanks Christina!

    I looked today, and while they have lots of storm troopers/clones I didn't not see Appo's. :( Sorry, I don't know if I messed up not calling you on Friday to ask. I will from now on when I am in question.

    TAC figs showed up at the Quincy WalMart as well. I just bought the 2 clones for now (since they didn't have the McQuarrie Stormie). I know they have them (cause I saw about 3 boxes of each), but they haven't put out the Vader/coin book or the Treachery at Seleucami battle pack yet

    I haven't seen them on this side of the river yet. Haven't really gone out looking though either.

    Actually, I just found Cmdr Appo, holographic Obi-Wan, and the Combat Engineer.

    I definitely want to get the speeder bike 2 pack, it looks awesome!

    They didn't have Vader either, but I did pick up an extra Marine Trooper, should anyone want it.

    Anyone order the new Sideshow Princess Leia? I really wanted to get her. But do not have that kind of cash right now.

    The C4 C3PO/R2 concept figures look VERY cool. I'm hoping these are offered at StarWars shop like usual. Although they are going to drive collectors batty. Its the same piece for Celebration Europe, only a different coin and cardback.

    Agreed, Just saw them this morning. They look great!


    It seems my list of things I must get keeps growing and growing. Anybody missing the good old days when you could somewhat keep up with everything that was coming out? :)

    Have not seen the new ones, have a link?

    Yes I do, remember when they had the Action Figure poster for ROTJ, and you could make a list of who you"had" and did not have. those were the good ol days.

    The Kirkwood Target has the Vader figure with the coin album. Of course I got one, although there is no chance I will be collecting all the coins. (I just wanted the artwork and being on a board it will stand up by itself well.) :D

    As cool as it looks too, we are just bordering on ridiculous now. They just announced another C4/Europe exclusive figure.

    Also cool, the 181st Fighter Group/Baron Fel TIE Interceptor just announced at toysrus.com. No pictures yet though.

    I don't know if it has been out for a while already or not but at walmart in warrenton yesterday i saw a Tycho A-wing pilot figure, i think it was a fan's choice one but i'm not sure.

    But they had several other 30th ann. edition figures there as well as a new repackaged TIE fighter and AAT Tank and Hail Fire Droid.

    ...and a Darth Vader transformer that transforms into the Death Star.

    I really wanted this, but when I went out yesterday, I couldn't find one! And just two weeks ago, they were everywhere... :(
