    Hi Darth Shaun,

    I cant remember what they look like. I might even have them...

    Hi DB and Woofer,

    I wish that I could meet up with you guys
    but at work I am. I really would have liked
    to buy a snowspeeder. Can one of you guys take a look and see if they have a Y wing and what the damage is ....

    Bah...I only picked up the Bespin Vader. I couldn't find parking so I double parked on a side street and ran in there. No Bespin Luke....darn it all!!!!

    I would of stayed longer but at the risk of getting ticketed and towed, I just grabbed the Vader and ran back to my car.

    Sorry I couldn't find the pricing on the stuff you needed, Mike.

    It is not a big deal young man. I have already spent $500 in the last 2 weeks so
    I should hold off for a few days anyways.
    Besides it would probably be $160 +...

    I did see the Y-wing, didn't check the price though. Sorry

    I was a bit rushed today with all the things I planned to do, so did not spend a great deal of time at the Snail.

    Darn, guess I'll have to go back.

    Hey Mike,

    Although stores will be receiving the new wave tomorrow it doesn't mean that they'll be pegged and sold tomorrow though, right?

    I went to the Snail today too...And while most of the new toys were pretty cool, what was up with that Mace Windu? Action poses are fine and good, but he just looked silly with his eyes closed and mouth wide open... :p

    yeah...mace looks like he just woke up with a big nice morning yawn.

    The deluxe Anakin isn't much better.

    I still love the fact that Orn Fre Taa weighs twice as much as all the other figures :)

    And the new Palpatine looks really nice too...I'll probably get both of them once they hit the cheaper stores (And according to TheForce.net, prices are dropping in the States by a dollar...I hope that happens here too!)

    Well, i don't think it will be necessary for the Bespin Luke since Mike said that they should be out everywhere within the next 5 days.

    I was just bummed cuz I went down there today and couldn't pick it up.

    HOWEVER, I would like period updates of what they do have in terms of new Star Wars figures.

    Hi DB, I am sure we will see them very soon


    Also remember DB if you really want the Luke Bespin figure, I can get it for you no problem. Just give me the word young man and
    with one call I will have one put aside for
    you as soon as they come off the truck....

    Thanks Mike but I can wait a couple days. Besides, I like the thrill of the hunt and finding it at a store. LMK if there are any sightings of it though within the next few days. That way, at least my hunt will be short one.

    Mike, are you sure you don't want to be my dad? You can use a 25 year-old Chinese guy for a son, right? Kekekeke.

    How much are figures all around? Just wondeirng where's the best place to go buying.

    Loblaws has action figures at $11.99 and the Jedi Starfighter at $29.99 wasn't able to check out the lightsaber prices though. They've got Doku's and Obi Wans.

    Well, if you being a nutcase of a dad can land me an inheritance of your collection, you can gladly call me your son. =D

    Yeah, I went to Markville Mall today and I took a peek at Walmart and Toys R Us and nothing new. I bought some new shorts today at Old Navy though. Yay me!

    I saw the Anakin figure with the two lightsabers today with the "Special battle Action" sticker on the front.

    Note to self : must grab.

    Note to Mike : You can't beat me to it. Chances are you've already got it.

    I know it is about $80 - 100 Cdn and should be out by now. You may want to speak to your local Party City store. Amazing party and costume at QEW and Kipling should be able to get it for you. I am thinking of buying one of these too.

    Ok, tomorrow is Wednesday so I'll be heading out to the Snail one more time to find my Bespin Luke and see if there are anything else cool there. I'll post findings tomorrow.
