    Dude, that Ventress/Dooku looks amazing. It'll certainly take some saving.

    SPOTTED:
    At Zellers, Chinook - in the Christmas section,

    A Fabriche Darth Vader statue (Vader is making a Death Star snowball)
    $29.99 (there were 4 on the shelf - according to the package, there's also a Jawa figure and a Fett one but neither one was there)

    Also, terrible (and I mean terrible) looking Yoda and Darth Vader nut-crackers. They're in official packaging but they look like junk (not sure what the price was).

    A while back someone on TDH had access to a whole bunch of the Fett statues and was selling them on there. I didn't pick one up though.

    Just got the Acme Archives Snow Bunny Padme character key today and it looks awesome #633 of 1000. It was originally a SWS.COM exclusive now only 4 more keys and I'm done the clone wars line as I'm up to date on the OT keys.

    Also got a R2-KT when I was at the pop culture fair in edmonton a week back nice figure and picked up my commander cody mini bust from ms_ventress.

    Think that's all for now always more coming [face_dancing].

    Well, last week I was finally able to add a third model to my Star Wars Lego Ultimate collection: Darth Vader's TIE Advanced. With just over 1200 pieces, it took about 6 hours to build. I was VERY surprised to see it at Toy'R'Us, when I stopped there on a whim.

    New exclusive maquette is now up for pre-order at actionfigureexpress.com and it's freaking sweet. It is Luke VS Diagona monster and this piece is only available through afx and is limited to 1500 pieces worldwide.

    Got mine ordered and check out rebelscum.com or actionfigureexpress.com for pictures. This maquette is scheduled to ship in January 2008 so act now.

    Checkout rebelscum.com for new pics of the upcoming CLone Wars packaging for the new figures, ships, and other products. Packaging looks amazing if your a mint on card collector and will be a welcome addition to any Star Wars collection. Make sure to keep your eyes open starting Feb 17th as that is when Toy Fair begins and we should see more of what's coming this year.

    I'm finding more and more toys for "The Force Unleashed" including LEGO and new toy "sith spike" lightsabers. It could be cool, but without the game to pull it all together it lacks something.

    I think they really missed a window when they pushed the game release.

    I think there not missing the boat so much as they need to release something as a tease for the fans because people are very excited about the game. The figures are scheduled to be wave 2 this year and are going to be a huge success as most fans want something new and EU is going to be hot stuff this year. Because EU will be the way Hasbro moves in the next few years as that seems to be the way Lucasfilms is moving.

    So I finally saw today one of the upcoming statue dioramas Sideshow is releasing for Jurassic Park. Obviously, I can avoid BIG shipping costs by buying from Canada and not Sideshow directly.

    Chinook and Hobby will be getting this, according to Trost Toys Distributing.

    Since I am way up here, I would need to get Chinook and Hobby to mail it to me. Are they reliable for this kind of buying? I know one person bought online from them and never got their item. I don't really have much choice though.......... <_<

    This is the item I am talking about:

    I think one of the guys whose post on this site runs a store and has connections with Sideshow maybe he could hook you up. Red 5 or something...
