    This is mostly for Phyllis.

    FYI, there is another, Mr. Potatoe Head.

    R2D2 is the next spud to be released.

    Geez, I haven't even found the Spudtrooper yet, but this should be cool.

    Not me! I am done with 3 3/4....
    for me it is all about the lightsabers...

    The Darth Maul FX will be up for sale at Master Replicas this week!
    Maybe it is time to do that "Darth Maul: Sith Training" costume....

    Hey, just a reminder. Our June meeting would normally fall on this Sunday, but due to Father's day, we will be meeting next Sunday.

    And it's summer field trip time, as we will be going to Quake Collectibles and then to nalan's house for some hanging.

    Collector Club falls on the same day as the zoo. Do we want to meet somewhere nearby after? Graham Crackers is not all that far from there also.

    Just wondering if any members of the collectors club were collecting any of Sideshow's 12 inch figures?

    I am not collecting the Side Show 12" figures...although I had thought about it...

    Right now I am just dizzy with delight ....
    It was quite a ceremony...
    Women fainted...:eek:
    Grown men cried....:_|
    I cried....:_|

    The ceremony?
    I installed the last issues of Star Wars Fact Files into their binder...my collection of 141 issues is now complete...=D=

    Hello,
    Though I am not a member of the Collecting Club, I am collecting the Sideshow 12" SW Line. I have a few of the 1/4 scale also.

    I am just recently jumping back into collecting and this line looks great.
    So far I have received these:

    12-inch Figures Anakin Skywalker - Sideshow Exclusive 21191
    12-inch Figures Kit Fisto 2106
    12-inch Figures Darth Vader - Sith Apprentice - NON-ATTENDEE 2139SC

    I have either orders/waitlist reservations for all of them.

    At first it did not seem that this would be an extensive line but they have been announcing new figures regularly.

    I have the 12" Obi-Wan ROTS on order. I can't wait to see it. I don't have any other Sideshow collectibles.

    Yeah I got sucked in by sideshow so far I have

    Anakin, anakin 2006 SDCC exclusive, Luke and I think Han is on his way now too.

    Based on the luke Fig alone, I bought the kickarse jabba set, and pretty much everything else sideshow puts out.

    Although my favorite items from sideshow have been the premium format line, of which i got Darth, Obi wan and Grevous.

    Sideshow pretty much comsumes 50 percent of my credit card continually, damn their superior sculpting.

    I have to say Sideshow has sucked me in as well though I've still managed to keep the brakes on somewhat. So far I've received the Anakin which is incredible, have the Han coming hopefully this week, and the Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon should be coming in Sept. This isn't to mention the Maul and Leia as Boushh that I have pre-ordered. Luckily I was able to say no to Jabba and his throne as my wallet just couldn't take anymore.

    My main excitement now though after only receiving one is getting the rest of these to see if the level of quality is as good or better than the proto pictures.
