    UP!


    Is the Unleashed Darth Vader real accurate, and is the pose authentic?

    Saw only one (in a colector's store), and in the glass case it was hard to see what he looks like.

    (Is it worth the price?)

    IMO, the Unleashed Vader is probably the best of the line so far. Great pose ripped straight from ESB, and the detail is fantastic. A must have! :)

    IMO!
    I'm quite picky when it comes to Vader my FAV! But the slightly inaccurate sculpt is overwhelmed by the sheer coolness of this fig! (Plus the sculpt is an artistic interpretation so I allow a little freedom with this line)

    I'v got both Unleashed Vader and Unleashed Jango...
    Vader is good but I have to
    admit I like Jango better..
    would love to see an Unleashed Boba
    from the ESB era tho..

    Yes there was an AF TIE Bomber, I have one sitting on my shelf with the rest of the fleet as we speak! I believe they came out in 1997 or 98 and were clearanced at KB stores for $3.99 each in mid to late 1999. That's when I got most of my AF vehicles. I highly recommend this ship if you can get it for a good price.

    Hi guys just went to TRU and found the Landspeeder, can any one please tell me the cost of this in the US, I'm just thinking this thing is overpriced here and want to compare with US$.


    Thanks in advance

    Hey Shocktrooper. They are 29.99 in Canada
    and 19.99 in the US. By the time you get it shipped over, pay the duty and exchange it will probably be about even. Unless you
    are buying it from a collectable store in which case they will have charging several
    dollars more...

    Thanks CrazyMike
    I'm in Australia and my TRU is selling it for $70 HUGE RIP OFF!!! thats the same price the TIE BOMBER was.
    Going from the US price I should be paying around $45 AUS. I think a phone call is in order.
    I loved the look of it and it would be my first landspeeder for 3 3/4 in my collection
    but $70 I'll give it a miss. Since our stores here never seem to discount I'll pobably never get it.

    Howdy everyone I recently acquired two SW flags one has the republic logo and the other the imperial. I paid $40 for both and they have tm & c Lucasfilm Ltd. All Rights Reserved. It came with a certificate of authenticity... in dutch.. which said each flag was limited to 1000 each. Has anyone heard of these flags?? Are they really limited Are they really licensed? Did I just get ripped off? Any comments or thoughts? other than that they are really cool and look good... Unfortunately, I have to sell em. do you think i could break even? or do you think i should just count my losses and keep the flags?

    Does anyone know of a site that lists all the Action Fleets that have come out? Pics would be great.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: The older ones preferably.

    Sorry "old" man, but neither of those sites has anything on the Action Fleets.

    Anybody else have any suggestions?

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I am looking for the following items. Does anyone know where I can find them? I don't get to make it to too many shows/cons, so I rarely just "happen" on to this stuff.

    Wish List:

    The Star Wars Holiday Special (VCD or DVD)
    The Ewok Adventure/Caravan of Courage (VCD or DVD)
    The Battle For Endor (VCD or DVD)
    ANY Ewoks cartoons (VCD or DVD)
    ANY Droids cartoons (VCD or DVD)

    Yes, yes, I am a glutton for punishment. Any assistance anyone can offer would be appreciated. Feel free to email or PM me.

    ^ I have the Christmas special and one of the Ewok Adventure, but mine are on VHS, and not DVD. If you would settle for VHS I could make a copy of them and send them to you.

    Thanks for the offer. I have "something in the works" with someone on the RPF, but that may fall through and I might take you up on that sometime.

    Still DEFINATELY looking for the VCDs, though. I've heard quite a lot of talk about them showing up at conventions and whatnot.

    ***THANK YOU MJF FOR DIRECTING ME HERE***


    I was just wondering if any of you could tell me where to find the AOTC Yoda figure. I have looked in most toy stores and Wal-Mart type places and have had no luck. Is it even out yet? I only collect Yoda b/c he's the MAN. (I hate that promo) But really, can I have a store order it for me?? Any info will help. I live in Charlotte, NC USA. I've never had trouble finding him before this movie. And he will make my Yoda bookshelf look SWEEEEEET! Help me JC members, you're my only hope! Sorry.

    There is an active FanForce chapter in Charlotte NC. I should have also given you the link to their board. They may be able to help you as well. I am sure many of them are collectors. It is interesting that you only collect Yoda. My youngest daughter is the same way, she only collects Yoda. :D
