    They want to get rid of the peg warmers..? Mark them down to $1 each, and buy 2 get 1 half off... There you go!

    Went yard sale hopping and found a SW pair of McDonald's Happy Meal "bobble-head vehicles". One was Obi-Wan's head on his Jedi starfighter, and the other was Leia's head on the Tantive IV.

    Yeah 2008, as they were released to promote The Clone Wars since that's when it began to air. According to the little paper that came with them there were 16 altogether.

    So I've started collecting the Star Wars line from Iron Studios 1/10 Art Scale, anyone knows about those?
    So far I've got the Death Trooper and the Riot Control Stormrtrooper, and just ordered Han Solo Stormtrooper Disguise today.
    I'll post somes pics of them when Han arrives.

    Went to GameStop today and bought the 40th Leia Black Series figure. She looks awesome! They also had the Vader Legacy pack, and that figure is gorgeous, but spending $45 for it is a little too much. I'll wait for it to be released in a regular BS packaging in September.

    I had the whole set back when it released! It helped that my older brother worked there at the time so he managed to snag them all for me. Unfortunately in 2011 I think I threw them all away to make space and I definitely regret it. They were really cool.

    Just got this beautifully detailed E-11 blaster carbine in the mail. It's made from PVC plastic with metal details like the rail and the trigger guard. The pommel cap comes unscrewed to add some weight to it, which I did through a thick metal rod. Now this thing feels beefy! Like a the real thing! But what really blows me away are the details. It doesn't have the sticker decals... yet, but it's got a lot of other great details that really bring realism like a dent in the stock (which unfortunately does not fold out, ah well can't have it all), pitting in the PVC and the counter even says Hengstler on it!

    Found a little Darth Vader candy dispenser at a yard sale. The candies were OK, but Vader's cool because when you press his chestplate he does his signature breath a few times. :vader:

    Also nabbed the Dark Horse book Panel to Panel at a book store, and it's got a lot of great comic art that, some of which is not available elsewhere.

    FINALLY got the Inquisitor, Seventh Sister, and Fifth Brother Funko POPs off Walmart.com! Been waiting for my store to get them in, but gave up on that since its been 4 months since they were supposed to release. Also went to a Big Lots and found those almost 6" 5 POA figures from Hasbro. They had Kanan and Han, and I picked up Kanan.
