    lol, I think "clutterist" should be "most clutty". :p


    Awww, in its packaging. Poor things, kept inside their cages. :(


    BTW, they're toys... not collectibles.

    I ended up buying my Silver Anniversary R2 on e-bay (and getting ripped off)...but I got tired of the endless....

    duh...
    gee....
    I dunno.....
    from the TRU employees....

    Mine hasn't arrived yet....but the spot next to the Silver Anniversary Darth Vader is open....

    the other figures you mentioned should be arriving shortly....
    have to check with my connection....
    I do have the Ephont Mon already....
    but the re-done Yoda and the Destroyer Droid are supposed to be the last figures for the current "series"....
    Then it starts over with a new "series"...probably some of the same figures ....just in new packaging...or slightly altered.

    Hmmm, I'm gonna call the two TRUs around here (Schaumburg and Arlington Heights) to see if they still have any R2s.

    I'll pick of the Slave I or something then return it in a day or two. :)

    There is one problem in returning items that you purchase to receive the R2, you have to return the R2 with the purchase. I was returning a couple items that I bought besides by $20's worth of SW toys. The person behind the counter told me this stipulation. So for those who were planning trying this good luck. It might work if the manager isn't around???

    I also spoke with a manager of the Toy dept at a Kmart in OH. She said that due to the port entry strike that a lot of the toys that were coming over were held at the dock longer than supposed too. That means our area was stuck with the same product for some time and that is why we are starting to see some new figs on the racks. Target has figures at $2.99 and have been for sometime. For those who our looking to build up their clone troopers and battle droids I was at a Target with racks full.

    Happy collecting!!

    Hey CM, things are well at the Larsen house hold! Abbie is getting bigger everyday! Man is sucks when I am on the road. Any how, the clones I was refering too were at a Target in Lavonia MI. Depending on what part of Toronto you are in you could make a nice trip to Detroit!! I am working on putting together some more pictures of Abbie and should have them up soon or maybe now only if I can get this to work.

    OK, I don't know if this is true (or if it's true for Chicago), but I got this off of another set of SW MB's I monitor. The guy's pretty reliable. Let us know if you find these deals:


    Okay peeps, you all wanted star wars toys for cheap? WELL HEAD ON OVER TO WIZARDS OF THE COAST NOW!!!!! They have 12" Ki-Adi-Mundi for $4.99 (and other 12" figures... depends on the store). Star Wars figures for $2.99! Jedi Starfighter for $9.99 (some have it for $4.99)! Hardware Wars dvd for $1.99!! The carbonation freeze chamber with figure for $9.99!!!

    STORMTROOPER TROOP BUILDER 4PACK FOR $6.99!!!!!! (i bought 8... so that's 32 stormtrooper figures)

    STAR WARS BOBBLE HEADS FOR $9.99 each!!!! They sold out of Boba Fett but I was able to get Vader and 3PO.

    Head on out soon while supplies last! Oh in case some of you don't know why Wizards of the Coast has all this fanclub sw merchandise, it's because they purchased the insider a while back.

    Oh and in other news, I recieved my Star Wars credit card the other day! www.deathstarplans.com has the image of it.
