Same here.. they're good.
So is Saga central.
Toys'R'Us in Adelaide have set up their Star Wars display in the foyer as you get off the escalator again ....
Galactic Heroes Cinema Scenes for $30 - Cantina Band, Escape from Mos Eisley, Geonisis Battle - only problem is TRU don't do layby's
They do do Playby
I thought they stopped that
They haven't done play-by for a few years - I guess they go burnt by too many people!
Curse you TRU!!!!!!
(insert shaking fist smiley)
At Fella's in the City Cross arcade there are two cardboard cut outs of Chewbacca and C-3P0.
Sorry - my bad. Shows how long since I've brought toys for my self.
Rogue Leaders - The Story of LucasArts. Will be getting this in the next week or two. Looks interesting.
Two links to it here (where it can be bought in Australia). http://www.shopwiki.com.au/_Rogue+Leaders:+Story+of+LucasArts
Alternatively, Amazon has it for $37US + Postage, which is a lot lower than the $60US RRP.
Secondly, again video game related, Gametrailers.com have put out TEN videos that are TWENTY MINUTES long each (ie, more than three hours!) about the history of Star Wars videogames. A bit dry, but lots of work went into it. Free downloads from here, nearly 2 gig in total (wow!). http://www.gametrailers.com/game/6389.html
Lucasarts are responsible for the best PC game ever - Monkey Island.
I loved that game! Loved number two aswell.
Oddly enough, I've not played any of the LucasArts adventure/SCUMM games! I've probably at least had a got at 90% of their other games.
Must install that SCUMM emulator on the PSP or iPhone...
But yeah, ordering the book today or tomorrow, still trying to find the best price & delivery times for Australia...
I was lucky enough to pick up TWO holo Jango Fett Key rings this morning. Coles at Reynella is selling the key rings again.
We have just seen them in Coles at Munno Para - but there were no Holograms ....
Roger David stores have a pretty cool looking range of SW T Shirts, but they are expensive at $49 each! But Even a stormtrooper, Vader, Yoda, Chewie and more!
They have an awesome stormy samurai tee. $40 when I last checked. I want!
I believe that 6082 has one of the Samurai stormie Ts...
This is Matt, transmitting from a below-zero locale in North carolina...
The stuff over here is INSANE. I wish I had enough luggage space to bring some back for everyone! The Disney gear is to die for - Mr Potatoe heads for all characters....'cept Chewie
The variations action figures are unreal Unleashed characters come in singles!
Will post photos of my personal booty!
for those living out north - Target at Tea Tree Plaza have a heap of figures, etc, reduced to clear - $7 each for figures, including Clone Pilot Oddball ....
I left them all.... I bought NADA!!!
haven't seen this one myself, but I'm reliably informed that Sanity stores have Star Wars belt buckles going cheap. Well, Marion does at least *lol*
