    I'm glad Judi cannot read this. She would definitely think you're giving her ideas.

    Was doing my grocery shopping at the local Sainsburys this morning and they had a stand of kids books on '2 for the price of 1'. In the pile I found Jedi Battles and Sith Wars. Both are picture/word books meant for young readers but I picked them up when I saw the number of stills from the films. Note that Amazon UK lists these as hardcovers but they are paperbacks.

    Aww they're so cute! I still haven't freed my set of those from their plastic prison. I'm not one to ask because I love ewoks, I'd recommend getting all ewoks out there :p

    And I was waiting for you to reply to this and sort of...enable me. :D

    See? I can't act like a reasonable thirty-something. It's Ewoks. :eek:

    Haha! The new Kmart assault catapult set is pretty awesome. I like the set w/ the mamma and the baby. I hunted a long time to get one of those sets reasonably.

    I still have a ton of the ewoks to pick up. Are you thinking of going for the cartoon vintage figures?

    I saw the catapult, from what I understand, it's a remake of the one err...as old as the film/as old as me? I'm always trying to locate items in Europe first, as shipping from USA can cost more than the item itself, in case of single figures and so; and toy shops here carry only the most popular SW stuff, not the kind of things I'm after.

    And yes, I'll be going for the rest of the PVC ones, but that will cost a lot. I saw Latara go for up to 40€, and that's more than I paid for this pack, customs and shipping.

    P.S. My Ewoks are bossy! http://instagram.com/p/sXN_-4H0Ki/

    Picked up the standalone SW:Tthe Bounty Hunter Code book at the local Waterstones today. I already have the deluxe set but wanted to read the book without having to disturb the deluxe box.

    Got my final two Star Wars Clone Wars animated figures this week! :) A loose red Clone Trooper (without the black plastic base unfortunately but in excellent condition) and a boxed battle-damage Anakin Skywalker. All 20 done and dusted. Now I can concentrate on Rebels figures.

    I am toying with the idea of getting those Gentle Giant Bust-Ups of the animated micro-series, to display with them. They seem be available for very low prices still and you can get some characters (like Padme in her winter hood outfit) that weren't released as action figures. What do you guys think of them?

    I like them, they're nicely detailed. They are a little fragile though and a pain for moving around, but once you display them they stay together. I have a good number of them, I like them.

    My Dorkside order showed up today: x2 6" Anakin Skywalkers and Toryn Farr. I'd highly recommend buying from them - they're a geek toy place and my figures were very nicely packaged w/ only the slightest corner edge wear from transit. Not that that matters to me since I'm a deboxer - but I know it bothers some people.

    Congrats - that is a superb set. I think I have this, though IIRC I got it @ TRU. I remember these were extremely HTF.

    Got TBS Mara Jade from Target last week - excellent figure, even though it was coming off the card....

    That looks like it's a great figure. Always was a big fan of Mara Jade...I really want them to come out with a six-inch version of her in TBS...I'd buy that in a heartbeat.
