    I just got the Yoda force FX lightsaber... and umm... it's probably the best thing I've ever laid my hands on! If you only get one force FX lightsaber, make it this one, you won't regret it!

    Medicom has just announced there next RAH 12 inch figure after the C4 exclusive and it none other then Jango Fett himself. This figure looks great and is featured on the main page of rebelscum if you want to see the picture for yourself. Would look great standing next to the Boba Fett that comes out in a few weeks.

    Recent additions to the collection:

    - Unleashed Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Shadow Stormtrooper (Wal-Mart US Exclusives, re-releases in new tube packaging, thanks Winbrant)

    - Acme Archives Character Keys: Kit Fisto, R2-D2, C-3PO, and Slave Leia (NYCC Exclusive, she's enroute right now)

    - Daniel Logan Autograph (Meet at Edmonton Toy and Comic show March 25th, wonderful young man.)

    That's all in the last few weeks, next week is of course the C4 Luke Yavin 12inch preview which I can't wait to have as sideshow are one of my favorites.

    I hope to have the collection room ready for display soon so maybe a tour will be organized.

    Dooks my SW room is crammed with stuff and the balance is in storage. A few things
    have made their way into my livingroom and my wife is not very pleased :)

    Dooks I am looking forward to the RAH Jango. I am looking forward to getting hime to go with the RAH Boba which I believe is shipping around the same time as the 1:4 Darth Maul. Someone on one of the Canadian forums was asking about pics of the SS 1:4 Boba so here are some pics. He arrived last week in the mail:

    Man that Fett looks amazing as does Grievous I hope to add both of these and the Maul one this year. The Jango RAH looks so good but this is a line I have yet to get into and still don't know if I will as Sideshow is kicking a$$ with there 12inch line.

    Just so much good stuff coming out this year it's going to be hard to decide what not too buy. I LOVE COLLECTING!!!!![face_dancing].

    I was just over on rebelscum.com and I nearly had a heart attack. They have announced Battlefront 2 trooper packs!!! We are finaly going to get the 501st in all their multiple class glory, including what look like new chain guns, EMP cannons and plex missile launchers. It's an army builder's dream (this had better not be a Target exclusive!)
    there is also a droid pack, and I hope that there will be Rebel and Imperial packs comming too.

    Also recieved the SWS.COM Exclusive Darth Vader and Stormtrooper Lego Maquettes and have to say they are great. Kind of forgot about these as I pre-ordered them from sws.com last october but are a nice addition to the maquette collection.

    The cool thing is the heads attach with magnets so you can switch there heads around like in the game. Nice line to get into with the hardest one to get being the Shadow Stormtrooper but that is because he was a Japan exclusive. The next one in this line is Boba Fett and is due out in October and is exclusive to sws.com. Also there will be a Luke X-Wing pilot maquette that comes with a Lego set at the end of the month which is a TRU exclusive(Thanks to Winbrant for the heads up).

    Just revieved my Clark Mitchell C4 art print today looks great and is featured in the unleashed battle pack packaging art work. Also picked up the Durge charater key from acme archives the other week when it went on sale. Only one more character left in the Clone Wars character keys kinda sucks but there is classic to focus on.

    Next week Oct.11 wizarduniverse.com will be selling a Spirit of Obi-Wan Kenobi mini bust by gentle giant on there website. Same mold as the Ep.IV one that's currently out but lights up like the C4 Yoda.

    Also got a few canadian carded 30th anniversary figures and Saga Legends so right now I have more canadian then I do american carded figures. That's all I picked up in the last little while but good enough I suppose.

    Whoa nice score echo so you want to trade that to me for anything :D. Cancelled mu Durge character key from acme and decided to pick it up along with the Boba Fett character key from SWS.COM. Could be some more additions in the coming weeks man collecting is fun.
