    Hey chewy,

    I did get The Bounty Hunter set at suncaost before they closed. I work for the company that bought them out so I had them held for me till the last possible marked down then rec. a discount on top of that. lol :) Sorry.

    Ok ............
    On to the new find over the last couple weeks. Ummmmmmm... were to start. :)

    All my basic new comics for the month.
    Plus a couple classic I found..

    A Call Upon Yoda Interactive. Great Deal on Sale. lol

    Figures:
    Monaw Nadon Saga #31
    Lushros Dofine saga #23
    Clone Commander Cody #24

    I'm personal NOT going to get the new set Heros & Vill. just for the fact thay are the same dang thing as before just w/ some new name on the box. It's actually starting to get a little old for me. The amount of repeats they keep coming out with. Exp. sence they are so many more figures they can be doing. It's kinda sad. :(
    Anyways......lol

    A couple loose figures in found...
    Snowtrooper Wave 10 1997
    Crown control Trooper 7-96
    Holt rebel soldier 7-97
    2 sandtroopers Wave 5 11.96
    Han in hold gear w/ saber blue

    I have a lot of the promo sheet for the Org. Star wars coming out on DVD Plus some promo posters(Don't worrie John I have some for you) Much love....lol

    The target Exclusive "General Grievous" Demise of Grievous

    A great new item me and John found last week at a show. They are these great new mini helmets. Just like the bustups. Same style. Anyways... they are made by Tomy Gentle Giant. They have japeness writing all over them. Very cool check them out.

    Oh ya...lol
    I got Vader and a VERY SWEET Black Tie Pilot Helmet. Nice... :)

    good finds there. I over the past week or so I have picked up the Tat wave, the new 7" unleashed, and a DV voice changer for $5 on clearance at WW. Not too bad on that one. It comes with a cheesy sabre but I thought it was cool. Got to love clearance. lol

    Hello, Hello, Hello !!

    How goes with everyone? I do hope all is well. :)

    So this week I did pretty good. ... lol
    I found a couple new pieces I had been hunting for. So let's get it started.

    Figures:
    Darth Vader saga 038
    Hem Dazon A.N.H 033
    Garindan A.N.H 034
    Han Solo A.N.H 035
    Sandtrooper A.N.H 037
    R5-D4 A.N.H 032
    Luke Skywalker A.N.H 036

    The best piece of the week is my new... :)
    Darth Vader Cold-Cast Statue which is made by Hasbro Adult Collectibles. It is 17inches tall (Just lovely) It shows him standing atop a broken platform just above a lava flow.

    It is a very nice piece. However I do have to say I'm a bit saddend by the item as a whole. The statue part of Vader is AWESOME they did a GREAT job on him. The part I'm most disappointed in is the base of the statue. The broken platform and lara are all made out of plastic. Oh, and very cheap plastic at that. You had to snap it together like an old model. a piece like this coming from Hasbro you'd think they would have done a better job on it. Especially seeing what the price of it is. Had I paid full price for it, I'd have been a bit upset. But the deal I rec. on it. I have NO complaints. lol

    OK, fine.........
    Statue of Vader Retail $129.99
    Comic Shop going out of Business ... Sad :(
    TK buying it for $34.99 PRICELESS!!!

    SeeYa!

    Some great finds there TK. Glad to hear people up in NH are finding the deals and the goods. I just got word the my wave 5 will be coming later this week from EE. Even though I have found the wave in the stores I look forward to getting a case. Nothing much new here in MA. Trying to find the Hunt for Grevious battle pack from TRU to no avail.

    The new Endor wave has hit the Concord Wal Mart. Due to me being flat broke I can't afford to get any :( Brandon did get most of them and I have to say that I'm impressed with the new 3P0. Nice articulation and the knees bend! :D

    The Death Star Gunner is easily the second best fig after 3P0, with removable helmet and points of articulation. gotta get me 2 of these. Also, noticed that the Vintage collection was dropped a buck and are now $8.98

    On a final note, I've been following the SDCC this evening and I want one of THESE!! :D It would make a damn fine collection to my GG bust collection :D

    any good finds up in NH lately? Been seeing the new Target Unleashed GG and Boba Fett. Granted they are repacks but the packaging is pretty damn good on these. I picked them up when I saw them.

    Not much at all really, just the second edition of the heros and villians. My wife was cool to get me the micro machines Executer for my desk at my new job :D

    Targets up here are empty of anything new, and nothing is found on clearance for SW.

    I picked up 7 of the Endor AT-AT, at ToyRUs yesterday and 3 of the Tie Fighter Sagas with the color variant!

    My first post... I met T.K. digging for loose figures ($1 each) at the Chris's Comic show in May... I lost his card, but found it today!

    Hey Baron...

    I told mine it was an investment (wink-wink) That it was going to be this year's "Tickle me Elmo"

    Then around Xmas... when they aren't selling for anything more than $90... as eBay is flooded with them...

    I will just have to convince her it is not worth it to sell them yet... then slow but sure, hopefully she will forget we have them!.... I didnt say it was a good plan, just that I had a plan...lol

    I would really like to find Fisto's starfighter (2 of them).... but I can only seem to get it from overseas people.

    We have Darth Maul's Light Saber, and Darth Vader's all silver star fighter coming soon as well to Walmart.

    I have some pre orders in at shop.starwars but who knows, one "wave" states it wont ship until 2007!

    What do you think of the $10 collector's packs of figures at Walmart right now?

    Where do I look for upcoming events and cons?

    I am new here.

    I pre-order a majority of my stuff from entertainmentearth.com. They are probably one of the best e-retailers in my opinion. Them and bigbadtoystore.com are my favs and I have done very well with them so far. I think I have been buying from both for 3 yrs now and have only been screwed a couple of times, which wasn't their fault Hasbro cancelled the waves I wanted.

    As far as cons go in MA(where I am from) we have in October Memoribilia fest in Milford, MA and then we have Supermega Fest in Nov in Framingham, MA. For Supermega Fest we plan on having a table set-up were we will have info on Fan Force and hold a couple raffles for baskets to give the money to a charity. At this time I forget the dates of those two cons,but if you go to the Boston rebels board Darthwormie has all the info posted there. Next Memorial Day weekend is C4 at in L.A. a couple of us from Foxboro boards are more than likely going and I know people on other sites that are going as well.

    I should be at SMF. The only thing that would hold me back is if my lil wookie cub decides that it is time to make his world wide appearance before next weekend.

    this will be the first one. the lil bugger is supposedly pretty big according to the ultra sound we had done last wednesday. we will see once though when the time arrives.

    anyway, to get back on target with this thread. I was able to find the new Target exclusive Mace BP on Sunday at Target in Marlboro. I also picked up tins for EP5 and EP1, plus a number of other stuff. The Mace BP is a pretty good one probably one of the best I have seen.

    Took a quick spin around Concord last night with no good results. The Wal Mart wave has been out for a while but there's really nothing in it that interests me. The other day I did see the new green Scout clone from ROTS, but didn't have any $$ to pick it up. That's all I have seen of the newest wave. Other than that, Target and TRU had nothing much new to offer...

    things here in MA haven't been the greatest either. I found the Wal-mart 5 a few weeks back. I am looking for a couple more sets of these figs. I found them at two Wal-marts and haven't seen them since I haven't seen any of the new stuff since actually. Makes me glad I did a pre-order thru Entertainmentearth.com when I did.

    Hey ,

    Did anyone know about the 2 day sale at Toy Rus? Buy 1 Get 1 Free! I found out Sunday night it was only for Sun & Mon. I did stop by 3 toy r us. 1 in RI,1 in MA. and 1 here at home. I found NOTHING !!

    I mean they had crap. 20 of the same office guy and that was it. It was kinda sad. I asked at 2 differant stores what was up and one place they said they did not have much to start with. He thought it may be just a sale to close out all the old stuff on the shelf to make room for the new items coming this spring. What new items?? lol I've only seen a few myself. I most be missing something.

    The 2nd. store the lady told me the first day they got WIPED out!! She said one guy had like to cart of stuff. (sound like me most times. lol) Guess I just missed out. The sad part is I may know the guy. lol Oh well.

    Let me know if anyone found anything at the sale.

    SeeYa,
    TK

    if there is another one of those titanium 3POs could you please pick me up one? I have not seen those in MA yet and probably won't since they are cancelling that line for SW.

    thanks

    The 30th Anniversary wave has hit Concord, and TRU has the Endor Walkers in stock as well as the Tantive IV battle pack. Walmart had one of the Battle of Saluemaci (sp?), while TK and Brandon noted that the Seabrooke and Manchester Walmarts had huge end caps of them. And there is still no sign of the McQuarrie Trooper! Grrrr. I was hoping to collect all of the McQuarrie concept figs but I'm not getting off to a good start!
