    jawainc. The Insider with C3PO on the cover has been in stores for at least a month now. If you haven't gotten it, you should definitely call the fan club and check things out.

    Yeah, that Insider is even out here in the sticks (Yuma, CO). So you know that if it's out here it DEFINATELY is out in Denver. Call em, and say "wot's up?"

    Now that the Bronco's season is over wot are we all gonna do?? Watch the Nuggets? ok, maybe not.

    Now everywhere I go I see 12 inch Darth Maul. Making me less proud of my Maul everytime I see one. Once again I must say, DAMN YOU HASBRO!!

    Anyone seen the "soft lines" figs here in CO?? The only new fig I haven't seen @ Walmart is that confounded R2. Don't hold out on a brotha, let me know wot up!

    12" Darth Maul? Where??? I have not seen any of those on the shelf since the summer!
    As for anything new, the only figures I have found have been the new 12" Chewie and Leia. I can't find the new 12" Han. As for the 3 3/4 figures I am still looking for Holo Sidious and that wave, not to mention that R2 with holo Leia and of course the soft goods wave! There is nothing new out here yet!
    Sometimes this hobby can be frustrating!

    I'm with you jedicat! I did see a HoloSid at Mile High Comics, but I didn't buy it. I didn't think it was that great. I read somewhere that the R2/Leia got recalled because the little Leia was a choking hazard, but I don't think that makes sense because what the heck about all those little blasters and other accessories that come with other figures? Those are bigger hazards.

    I'm trying to find Jedi Women Mara Jade, Leia Organa Solo and Mon Mothma. Anyone have any ideas where?

    Hey jwkenobi,
    I had a hard time as well finding all 3 of those figs. Maybe try ebay, try to get in on a last minute auction...it's worked for me.
    Who else has found the "soft goods wave" ? I'm finally caught up again except for them & of course R2 w/Holo Leia...oh wait I guess TC-14 & R2-B1 are supposedly out now too!!! It never fails, just when I think I'm caught up...

    Where did everybody go?? Okay, quick question: Who has a Commtech reader???? I would also like to know who opens their figs.


    Me personally, I do not have a commtech reader. I think commtech is an evil plot by the man (Hasbro) to squeeze another buck out of us. And I open certain figs, if I get doubles that is.

    WOT UP COLORADO???

    Hi! I'm still here. I'm a figure opener. I like to play with them before I display them. I have some collector cases I put them in and group them by different themes - e.g. Jedi, Jabba's Palace, Naboo (Now that I have Ric Olie and Panaka, I only need Sio Bibble to complete my "Three Stooges of Naboo" tableau!

    I save the cards in a notebook. I finally broke down and got a Commtech reader thing for less that $10. Other than the Gungans, they do a fair job of mimicking the real characters. It was kind of fun to try them all out one night.

    I'm still here. Just nothing to report. I have not found anything new. I can't find any new figures out here!
    I am an opener too. I like to open my figures and see what they can do, and then display them and make little dioramas and scenes when I have the time. I did get a Commtech reader when they were cheap. So of course now it sits there collecting dust! Oh well...if they ever get those chips to actually sound like the characters then I will be ready to use the reader once more.

    Well, another weekend and of course nothing new on the shelves or on the pegs! Anyone else have any luck?
    At least the new Insider came today in the mail.
