    My problem with the price is that the Marvel Legends line, which is the same scale (At least in terms of height. I'd say they're actually bulkier), retails for $14.96 at Wal-Mart. I understand not all licenses are the same, but that's a $5 swing :(.

    I'm with you on the stand. I was really disappointed when Hasbro stopped including them with their 3 3/4". With the 6" they're really almost a necessity.

    Picked up the latest Insider issue.

    I ogled the 6" Black Series figures at Target today, but didn't buy any. I was on the hunt for blind bags of Fighter Pod figures, but couldn't find any.

    Just bought the POTJ Amanaman. One of my favorite aliens in the entire saga! Definitely excited, it's everything I thought it would be, has lots of nice detail for an older figure.

    Picked up the latest Insider.

    I looked through Target's toy selection and absolutely no sign of Black Series figures anywhere. Carlisle's Target has been a real bust. I'm not holding my breath for Gettysburg's Wal-mart.

    My Entertainer still has a few Wave 1 figs of both the small and large Black figures. R2 seems to be a pegwarmer,

    I found the 6" Black Series Boba Fett on Amazon for $26.50 w/free S&H, and I pounced on that bad boy like a lion on a gazelle. That's a full $12-14 less than I'd seen him anywhere else (when sold seperately). You factor in gas & sales tax and, assuming I would've found him at retail, it's basically a wash. Pretty stoked :D.

    Lucky you! Post a pic when you get him. The only Black Series Fett I see on Amazon UK is the CE II exclusive going for around £100. Not going there..

    Will do. I was pretty jazzed to get him at that price. I'd been checking Amazon and ebay and he was always well North of $30. When I saw the free S&H I think I may have broken my "Enter" key I hit it so fast :p.

    All the pieces are there. Not bad for 17 bucks.

    Nice Find DarthMak - I spent many hours in my childhood playing that game!

    That was fun, got confirmation that a package I was waiting for was delivered. Looked it up - it went to my old address. Luckily a) it was just down the road from me. b) after 6 months the house is still waiting for renters so my box was there waiting for me. WHEW!

    Got my first item in a LOONNG time today - my Gentle Giant Premium Guild Exclusive Mace Windu Mini-bust showed up! Also arrived in the box was a bonus 12" scale Jumbo Kenner Han Solo blaster keychain!

    Photos will come later.

    Also bit the bullet and went to Hasbroshop.com and ordered the Han, Slave Leia, and Greedo 6" figures (not shocking they were out of Boba Fett - which is fine, he didn't excite me) instead I also snagged 3 3/4" Biggs, AOTC Anakin, and AOTC Padme figures!

    I just got all of Star Wars Black series 2 and posted reviews on my site.

    They're very, very cool. I was looking for the K-Mart scanning crew set over the weekend, but no luck.

    As you can see I still haven't taken him out of the box, but you can see the level of detailing through the window and it's fantastic. I love this figure and this line.
