    Picked up another sketch card, this time a Jessica Hickman from the 2012 Galactic Files Series 1.

    I also found this fascinating and extremely rare signed Shannon Baksa figure from the 2001 Abbey International Japan Tour. According to the card back, she was over there in February 2001 with Billy Dee Williams and John Hollis (Lobot) to sign custom figures. Only 70 produced of this one.​

    Its time.....time to search for some great action figures. I'm going to start by looking for Pablo Jill Black Series, especially since I remember passing on his first figure release, and it shot up on ebay for like $40!
    Wish me luck (even though there is no such thing as luck- Obi Wan ANH)

    I went to Wal-mart and saw the same peg-warmers, but in a new location. The SW section has been squished into the very end of the aisle, and it's just depressing. I swear my local Wal-mart just doesn't care. They don't even stock Insider anymore.

    Local Entertainer had the usual pegwarmers in the Black series last time I was there. Even their website doesn't have anything new in that area.

    I didn't buy it, but I saw a giant-size clone trooper at Target the other day.

    Wave 3 of the 6" Black Series finally started showing up on Amazon. I just bought Bespin Luke. Stormtrooper is currently running about $50, so I'm just going to keep my fingers crossed and pray that I find one at retail. Personally, I think he's going to prove more elusive and expensive than Boba Fett did simply because he's an "Army builder". Why anyone needs 10-12+ 6" Stormtroopers I have no idea.

    I don't know but there are a lot of guys who certainly love to army build.

    I picked up a big 30th anniversary Coin album at Goodwill this week. It's pretty spiffy, I might have to use it for my coins that are all over the place.

    Found this at the local bookstore in town this morning. Hadn't seen it before so I picked it up. It's a mix of art from the DH and Marvel comics. Pretty good!

    I think there are 5 or 6 Fett-related cards. One was the Vader/Fett duel from 'Enemy of the Empire'.

    Nice book LAJ!

    So my shopping is now limited to thrift shops since I'm having to sell on ebay for extra moola (not advertising - just stating a sad fact.) I hit the freaking motherload for Star Wars goodies today - I only had once in the past that I saw as much stuff at one shop. But that go around it was masses of figures - I've never seen this many vehicles before. Part of this batch I'm keeping (that Galactic Heroes Falcon is MINE!) - the rest I'll be selling.

    Check out my haul:

    This is the stuff that I'm selling, including another ship that I'd picked up a few weeks ago. The CW thing w/ the big wheels in the back is staying because it won't fit in any boxes that I use for mailing things out.

    Can anyone help me to ID these?

    And these are Anakin's and Obi-Wans starfighters, ,right?
