    Just ordered a vintage C-3P0 online. I hope his legs aren't too loose!

    I liked Open Seasons. It was a good read. Some of the characters show up in the SW: Bounty Hunter game as well.

    My copy of the Official Figurine Collection #56 came in the mail, today. Now, I have 4-LOM displayed on my shelf beside Zuckuss.

    And I'm thinking of buying more of these magazines.

    I don't have a problem, I can stop at any time. :p

    Got my Sideshow Tusken Raider 1/6 Scale exclusive figure today. He's pretty nice! Check out pics/review HERE.

    I've also recently got a Hot Toys 1/6 Scale Superman (Christopher Reeve) and I picked up loose most of the Hot Toys Wolverine figure from Origins. God I love their figures, they're soooo beautiful!

    Forgot to mention I also scored a Lego Sith Infiltrator in box at Goodwill today. I looked inside and Maul is in there, I didn't actually count the pieces but it looks like it might all be there.Don't own any legos so trying to assemble this should be interesting. If it's all there, it's going into my departments White Elephant exchange at Xmas. Come to think of I guess not, I didn't see his lightsaber. Guess I'll have to keep him - oh darn.

    It might be worthwhile to check BrickLink, which keeps an inventory of all the pieces found in each LEGO set. That'll tell you if you have all the pieces, and if not, which ones are missing. :)

    I'll have to check that out. So far it's missing several pieces from the underbelly of the ship, makes it hard to try to make it to see what else I might be missing :(

    That is one lego set I wanted and didn't get... yet. As a major Lego player/collector I have to check out that link as well. Thanks, Mayla!

    I did get stickers! I have a R2 sticker, rebel logo stickers, 'protected by Wookiees' sticker, and a 2nd death star sticker [ gonna put that one on the front of my laptop.]

    My goofy Yoda/Disney bobblehead statue arrived this week that I ordered before I learned about the merger. Darn the Mouse, now I need to see about tracking down more of these kinds of items...the statue is adorable I've got him next to my popcorn munching Yoda GG mini-bust from Wondercon last year :)

    Vintage 4-LOM(aka Zuckuss), Chief Chirpa staff and Emperor cane to complete those figures. I'm having a blast putting together a loose vintage collection!

    Target has all sorts of fun Xmas goodies. Didn't pick up the glass ornaments - it irritates me that they sell them w/o boxes to protect them.

    I picked up 4 Xmas bobbleheads: Vader, C-3PO, R2-D2, and Yoda
    A puzzle w/ the CT good guys that's in a baggy.
    3 mini-deformed plushy dolls: Boba Fett, Stormtrooper, and Wicket. The stormtrooper cracks me up - he looks like the 2 tiny stormtroopers from Detours :p

    Vintage Hammerhead. I have to say he was probably my favorite when I was a kid.

    The Boba Fett dry erase board looks pretty sweet.

    Indeed it does. And handy, as I use dry-erase boards often. My current board is pretty small, I could use a cool-looking larger one.
