    Alright, I've actually been meaning to do this for a long time (since a little while after the first Black Sun meeting), but I've been too lazy to actually post it. :p So, here it is!

    I really don't know how to get into this, so I'll just jump right in. Since the first Black Sun meeting, we've seen people buying each other figures. New figures, rare figures, everything. When someone really wanted something, it was made known, and maybe a few people looked for it on their toy runs to pick up for the person who wanted it. Yet, so many toy runs for me seem to be not only so pointless when they don't have the figures I want, but falling short of their full potential.
    I mean, I've seen some 2003 figures in stores. Way back in early, early spring, I saw Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Acklay, and recently I've seen a Clone Wars Droideka Launcher, some AATs and Starfighters, and the new Luke and Vader plastic lightsabers. I, personally did not buy any of these because they weren't figures/toys that I wanted, but I'm sure there were people here in CF that would have loved to have one or two of these toys at normal price if I had bought them for 'em. But I'm not going to just buy every new figure I see, assuming that someone will buy it, and I'm sure you won't either. For example, I've wanted a few red battle droids for a while, and just before the last Black Sun meeting, Burton had seen one at a store, but didn't pick it up because he didn't want it, and of course had no way of knowing that I wanted it. :(
    Wouldn't it help if we already knew exactly what other people wanted before going on toy runs? So, I thought up the idea of a thread just for that: Everyone posts what figures/toys they want (and how many of each) in this thread. That way, if you want to help out fellow collectors, you can bring along the list in case you find new toys out somewhere!
    And, of course, you'd make use of this board's unlimited edit time feature so as to keep your list updated and current. It's honestly not really nice to leave figures on your list that you already have; you're costing someone else money. :( So! Keep your list updated and be prompt about it! :D It'll make everyone happier!

    And please, please, please, do not create another post when you update your list- just edit your original post. If each person just has one list that's updated consistently instead of 20 posts updating their list, it's much easier to keep track of! :)

    One more thing: Listing them in order of "how badly you want them" would be nice. :)

    So, you guys with me? :D I really think this might be a great idea for us Black Sun dudes... You know, helping each other out even more! :) And, without further adeiu, here is my list!...


    Nothing. I'm taking a several month break from Collecting. :)

    Fantastic idea Sithman!!!

    I want to echo Kevin's point on keeping your list updated and staying with only one post. I doubt that if you have 20 posts anyone is going to bother buying toys for you since it will be impossible to keep track of.

    Regular Figures:
    Endor Wave:
    General Crix Madine
    General Lando Calrissian
    General Han Solo (AT-ST Driver Disguise) x 2

    I saw some new stuff that I hadn't seen yet at the Big K-Mart in Racine, when I was up there last week. (picked up a Pit of Carkoon Boba Fett for m'self) Next time I'm up that way, I'll check and see if anything from people's lists is there....

    Bump: I updated my list with two ARC Clonetrooper and two plain white clonetroopers that would come with each of the ARC troopers. :) I'll mention my want for them at this Black Sun meeting, but I wanted to keep my list updated too. :)

    Hey Jimmy! I imagine so...

    I'm almost "done" with my SW room. The main figures I'm looking for are a blue clonetrooper and a green clonetrooper (loose and free would be fine with me).

    With any luck I'll take a few pics today.

    edit: see my post on the next page.

    I told Sithy last night, but I found a pair of ARC troopers for him!

    I think Sithy only wants one ARC, so Drac, you can have the other one. (I got a total of three, one for me, one for you, one for Sithy.) Are you coming to Kane County?

    I want an ARC trooper They are so cool. That would be a neat costume. They remind me a lot of Boba Fett espically with the rocket pack.

    Actually, Peaches, I just picked up an ARC trooper myself last night, so, PM General Kenobi and ask him if you can have the one that he bought for me... It's fine with me! :D


    Though, if anyone finds and ARC Trooper Value Pack from Wal*Mart with the white clonie attached to it... LEMME KNOW! :D



    I edited/updated my want list, BTW. :)
