    I'm going to the UK for Xmas.
    If anyone would like me to pick up a modern carded figure let me know.
    eg Dooks may like a Vader???
    I think the costs are about the same.

    I'll do my best to see what I can get for you.

    Very kind of you to offer, Vinny. I'm not collecting figures anymore though.

    We'll miss you at the party - but have a Happy Christmas in the UK!

    Emperor figure if you can or Ventress Dooku or Grievous whatever you get I'm good for the dough.

    Thanks have a great time.

    Hi everyone, hope you all had a great time.

    I just realised how lucky we are here. I know there are some complaints about the cost of SW merch. here compared to the US, but the UK is even more expensive.
    In Toys R Us the new large AT-AT retails at 99 pounds, so at the present exchange rate that about $165 Canadian, and most basic figures work out to about $18.
    Wow,
    Anyway, I checked out a whole load of figures, strangely the Clone War figures were all canadian imports??????

    I found a couple of things.
    Firstly, I could NOT find any R2s on any type of card......sorry.
    I did not find an Emperor, but DID find a Darth Sidious.
    I also found a Vader.

    One of these is on the vintage Empire card, and one is on the Jedi card.
    I can't remember which way round though.
    I'll bring them in next meeting.
    The cost is about $18, but give me $10 and we'll call it a merry Christmas.
