    I think I have had the longest dry spell since I started collecting!

    I havent seen ANYTHING new since last April 23rd!

    I want to pick up a Bespin Vader but cant seem to find one! I am kinda hoping that the fan club gets them in so I can order that and the Stormtrooper builder set together!

    Anyone else order(or ordering) the troop builder set?

    Well I'm packing up my female collection and thinking how did I get so many? Then I look at Jeff's room and don't feel so bad. He just got about 15 or so female SW figures (which he had most of them already).

    As for what your looking for, I keep my eyes open but the person to ask is Chunk.

    Let's post one more time what every body is looking for (old or new) we can keep an eye out or trade.

    I found clone trooper pez and jango fet pez and all the other characters... didn't know if those are new or not. I don't follow this kinda thing. But I sure thought they were cool. Especially since they were being sold in a fabric store.

    I have seen the Pez at Wal Mart a few times.

    Has anyone in the Alliance put in a pre-order for the Imperial Shuttle? I did this afternoon. Kinda pricy at $125, but with shipping it totaled a few cents short of $145!!!!!

    That has to be the most expensive SW toy ever, well at reatail prices anyway!

    P.S.
    JGoC, what were you doing in a fabric store? Looking for decorative rope?

    Heres the Rebelscum artice....

    UPDATE: FAO Taking Pre-Orders For Shuttle Tyderium
    Curto: FAO Schwarz has sent out an email notice informing subscribers of some exciting news:

    Call 1-800-876-7867 for more information. Limited quantities available so order now for December delivery! Please reference promotion code: EM235 when ordering.

    * 'biggs33' writes in to let us know that he got a similar email with the code EM237. Perhaps this is a regional difference that FAO uses to track orders?

    I am fairly sure that you have to call to get in on it.

    I called today and the lady had no idea what I was talking about, so I told her to ask her manager.

    Be very very cautious arrow, this one seriously puts a dent in the pocketbook.....

    Just do what I did and pre-order it and not say anything! ;) You wont be billed till it ships in December, so you have pleny of time to save up some cash!

    Let see this is May and it ships in December thats 7 months and it costs $145 shipped so thats about $20 bucks a month!

    At HR Meininger's, the art supply store on 5th avenue and Broadway, I picked up a really interesting item that I haven't seen anywhere else. It's a Star Wars pen made by Lego -- each pen comes with a Lego figure and some various bits to attach to the pen. I got the last Darth Vader, but yesterday they still had Anakin Skywalker (the name's misspelled on the package, might be of interest to variant collectors), Jango Fett, Artoo, and Threepio. Has anyone else seen these anywhere?

    wow a buck a piece? Pretty cool! Yeah, I only go to Wal-Mart and K-Mart to look for SW stuff and they're expensive there :( But i found these cool sticker things, a big ol' box of them for 5.99 at KMart, they're cool!

    I wish I had known there was a Legoland Store at the MOA, I would have taken orders before I left. They had these really cute Lego figure keychains and they ha all of those Pens Clockwork was talking about, Jango, Vader, Anakin, Clonetrooper, and two others that have completely slipped my mind. They were also building the 10' Yoda again too.

    I've decided that I need to be strong and wait for the Rebel Blockade Runner to go on clearance. It's $200 right now, and that is way too much, but they had one put together there and GOD I want that thing so bad.
