    Recently, I preordered the 1/6th scale Wolffe. When the announcement came up on April 1st, I was afraid it was a prank, but luckily it wasn't. Just a day before the announcement I had told my friend that the only 6th scale figure I really, really wanted was Wolffe .. and then that :).

    Commander Wolffe is so cool. I mean I even spent $10 on his figure. Just had to.

    I picked up a lot recently. Not sure...guess May the 4th is getting me into Star Wars spirit. Picked up almost all the expanded universe figures/ships (Luke, clone Palps, Mary Jade, Sentinel, Adm. Thrawn, Concept Cloud City car, Air speeder, Speed bike, Cruise Missille, Swoop Bike. No one wanted them on Ebay, but man I really liked the design of the ships and hope to see their use in Episode VII. Then I picked up Vintage Imperial Attack base, Dagabah sets (not complete), Naboo starfighter, Kenobi's AOTC ship, Anakins ROTS ship, Commander Faie, Vintage Death Star Space Station (almost complete). So needless to say, I'm broke, but happy with my new collection pieces.

    Also picked up this Sandtrooper. I think he's the one the Clone Wars was going to debut next season. Any thoughts?

    Looks like. Or even a concept sandtrooper. Honestly, I'm not sure. Parts of him look kit-bashed. You'll have to give us better pics when you get him.

    Anywho, I haven't bought much lately, as I had dropped the cash on a non-SW figure, so I'm holding off on buying anything else for a while. In case you're curious, I bought this recently:

    The only thing SW-related about Mewtwo is the lightsaber he's holding, which I got at CVI.

    Postman brought the June issue of the UK Clone Wars comic magazine but put it through my neighbor's post slot instead of mine. (It's a temp postman this week). Neighbor gave it to me when he got home from work.

    Well, I hit 23 on Tuesday and as a reward for surviving another year I was awarded/thoroughly spoilt with:

    Lego Jabba's Palace set.
    Lego Sarlacc Pit/Skiff set.
    An alarm clock shaped like a Boba Fett minifig.
    RotS Palpatine, Blue lightsaber variant. (YES! :))
    An A4 framed ep IV poster print.
    A mug with Luke on a Tauntaun on it.
    A 12" Jawa which we later discovered to be a money box.
    An R2D2 minifig keyring.
    A Stormtrooper keyring.
    A Stormtrooper t-shirt.
    And the Palpatine Transformer from the crossover line.

    And a partridge in a pear tree :)

    Honestly, I'm never usually this spoilt! So very happy right now... But I'm majorly savouring it, 'cause I'd imagine my other half and my family won't be so giving ever again :p

    That's quite a haul there! Happy B-day!

    My Gentle Giant brown snake jumbo figure Yoda arrived today. His box was enormous...packaging every bit as enormous. Seriously there's no way I could collect all of these, they're like regular 3 3/4" figures on steroids.

    I do love the Yoda though. There are a handful of figs that I'd pick up - I'd get a Bespin Leia, a General Calrissian, and maybe some of the ewoks. Other than that, I don't really need more of them. I'll review and have pics of him after I move.

    Nice haul, Vebnator! (And happy birthday..)

    I have a similar alarm clock to your Fett, I think. It's Vader. Got it as a Christmas 'Secret Santa' gift.

    I hope so! I'll be able to open the minibust when I get home after college.

    I like them - some of them fall apart pretty easily though.

    I shall keep that in mind for when I get a Zuckuss Bust-Up. I'm an obsessive duster, so I'd have to put him back together quite often.

    Though... if you never plan to dismantle the figures ever again... you could always glue the pieces together.

    For Star Wars Day:
    B-wing lego set [ 50% off at Lego store so that factored heavily in my decision vs the new Red 5 X-wing I would have preferred, plus I have pretty much everything thing else]
    Han Solo in Hoth Gear Lego minifig 'giveaway' for spending over $75, very cool but "giveaway" :rolleyes:
    poster of Yoda Chronicles & comic book to go with it
    free comic book of Empire #1
    t-shirt with Chewie standing in front of palm trees holding a skateboard with a rebel insignia from Hot Topic
    Vintage Collection Luke in Hoth Outfit figure
    ROTJ Deleted Scene with Luke building lightsaber figure

    My mother came back to NJ from her Florida house with 3 Clone Wars figs she picked up for less than a dollar each: Obi-Wan Kenobi, R4-P17, and Quinlan Vos

    Yeah, my mother is cool like that, but then again she has been buying Star Wars stuff for us since 1977, LOL! She has some experience.

    Anyway, I made the most of SW day than I ever had before by doing the true thing SW fans do best: spend $ on SW stuff. ;)

    Still waiting for those Bust-Ups, hope they're nice!

    I read that a while ago, and thought it was great. Jeffrey Brown certainly has a knack for these little humor books, and is good at heartwarming stuff as well.

    Don't know if it counts as collecting but I got Star Wars: Bounty Hunter off Ebay on Tuesday and it came today. I haven't played it yet(will do when I have finished Jedi Starfighter) but it looks like a awesome game.
