    I've never wento looking for toys in Farmers. I've been to Kmart at St Lukes for a few times and they never have a lot of SW stuff. I don't collect anything but it's fun to look. :D

    IMO, the R2 with holo Leia looks much better. But I haven't bought the AOTC R2, so it may be better unpackaged.

    Yeah, it does beep and light up I think. My Artoo keyring does that as well.

    Hey, does anyone know if the warehouse is having a sale today?

    The Warehouse was having SOME sale prices, but I don't think toys was one - mainly bedding.

    K-Mart St Lukes has probably the biggest selection I saw during my travels yesterday - including T-shirts (kid's sizes I think).


    Edit:
    I just saw another advert - K-Mart's 15% off sale is today and tomorrow (Thursday and Friday).

    K mart had LOTS.
    yup 15% off everything...

    They also had LEGO Deluxe collectors edition X-Wing fighters. $199 with 15% off = $170. Me want.

    Yep, 15% off Thurs and Fri, all stores open til 9pm. Figures for $14.30, not bad.

    Picked up Bespin Vader and Luke.

    I love the way Luke comes with a suckon-cap cloud city vane so you can hang him from your ceiling, lol.

    BTW, has anyone been finding the magnets on the figures are far too weak? They can pick up a gun or lightsaber, but that's about it. They don't 'jump into their hand' as it says on the packet. Misleading advertising!!

    What you mean like a real one? :D

    They've got toy ones from AOTC everywhere now. You pay around $69.95, and they make movie sounds, light up, everything you'd want.

    Or else you can by an imitation cheap one, usually called 'lazer swords' or 'lazer sabers' because the name 'lightsaber' is copyrighted to LFL, for around 10-20 bucks.

    Thanks Kitt. yeah I want a real one. When I'm rich, I'm gonna do heaps of research to make them.
    Do you know whereabouts exactly has the good kind of sabers, good as in official LFL ones?

    If you mean the $69.95 ones, they should be available at most stores carrying Episode II toys. You can buy Anakin's, Obi-Wans and Dooku's. Quite good :)

    Later they'll probably release the 'basic' sabers. Still LFL, just without the fancy light and sound etc., and a little shorter. I got a basic Ep1 saber (not the really thick ones with thin blades) from Deka last year, and it's got a far better blade than any of my others. It fully retracts into the handle, too. They'll be worth watching out for, and will be somewhat cheaper.

    There's some great looking replica lightsaber handles (and a Han Solo pistol) at Master Replicas - Note: possible Episode II spoilers

    One of them isn't an exact replica, but it does light up.

    EXPENSIVE though, and limited in numbers.

    Expensive, and you can't hold backyard lightsaber battles ;)

    I didn't see any Obi's lightsabers at St Lukes yesterday. :confused: Surely they are not that popular. I think the t-shirts come in adult sizes too. :)

    obi wans saber is the harder saber to find due to the way the cases are packed

    found a card variation the other day, Super battle droid. some have stickers on the back over the part that shows you what the figure does, some don't.

    And whats with the little holographic backdrops on some figures? pesonally I think they look silly.

    card backdrop was ment to go in ever figure but the packaging line stuffed up and only some figures got them

    got plo kloon and siasee tiin today. force things r stupid figures cool

    two moans saisee hand is to big to hold saber properly and the figures have holes in there belts but the sabers dont have pegs to hang them on

    I think these figures were a bit rushed in the packing - there TONS of "variations": with/without backgrounds, sticker changes, etc.

    Thankfully I don't bother buying every single "version". :)

    Man i'm missing out on so much. I haven't even been into any stores yet. I only saw the packaging for the first time on the news last night with the interview with J&D.

    There's just so much going on at the moment [face_plain] Busy, busy.
