    I want Paploo most of all, but he's hella hard to find.

    For Han's shirt- it was stained when I got him, but a scoop of Oxy Clean in water and left to set for an afternoon brightened it up.

    Awww, my guys are all in storage. The 2 3POs are from Spain the rest are Star Tours guys. I believe I also have a stormtrooper, Vader, and Chewie from that line.

    Obtained these two today - the German book is from 1987 and it appears to be on a level I could use to practice my translation skills, the sticker album is the same one I had as a child in then-Yugoslavia.

    Skellybobs - I like those Mission series figures, they look like they'll stand up on their own better than the more articulated ones.

    Ewok Poet - those are pretty cool! The artwork is adorable.

    Post lady brought the August/September issue of Insider today. I love the Jeffrey Brown cover, especially as the subscribers cover doesn't have all the text on it that newsstand editions have.

    Picked up the latest issue of Insider. I eyed the Hallmark Keepsake ornaments yesterday, but not all of the SW ones are out yet, and there weren't any that I really, really wanted, so I just got Godzilla and pre-ordered the Xenomorph.

    Then I flipped through Insider and looked at the Brian's Toys ad and say that Toryn Farr is up for pre-order! I also saw that they're selling a bronze Vader statue.

    Time to check my couch for loose change! I'm sure I have $18,000 in coins lying around somewhere...

    Woohoo! FedEx just delivered my 6" San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Jabba the Hutt that I got through Hasbro directly!

    The box is huge - I officially have nowhere to display him :p

    Just bought a Clone Wars Animated series blue Clone Trooper on eBay UK for £11.99 GBP

    These last few colour variants are getting a little bit harder to nab for under £10. The yellow cost me £8.

    Just the red Clone Trooper and short haired "battle damaged" Anakin to go

    Found a Saga Legends Boba Fett at toys r us. I'd seen him before once a few months ago, and haven't seen him since, so I snagged him this time! $5.99 is not all that bad :)

    These were finally shipped today (had dealt with a really peculiar eBay seller...)...my first action figures. So excited. :) Love that first picture, guess I would need a trooper to recreate that!

    And a random parcel from France for somebody living 400-500 metres from here was delivered to me, because, apparently, other people in this part of the city aren't supposed to manically order fun stuff and spend all of their money on it. Ohwell, gonna go give it to whoever actually ordered it.

    She thinks that everything from an used tea bag to a pair of glasses is a chew toy, so...yup, I only wanted to make a witty pun, but I failed. :D

    Oh ha ha. Yeah thankfully mine is no longer in full blown puppiness, so I understand the frustration there.

    Lord knows how many Jango and Boba Fetts I've lost to my dog. He's been with my since before my fourth birthday. Now she's old and sleepy, but back in the day, the Fetts, and Luke, were his figures of choice!

    Haven't updated in a month and there was a few things I picked up. Finally a proud ownder of the original Cantina set without box or base! Also picked up Carded Cloud Car Pilot, Imperial Hoth set gun, carded Emperor, Weequay, Logray, Adm. Akbar from ROTJ, and Last 17 Imperial Gunner in good shape. Now (for realZ) in save $ mode for Rebels.
