    Hey Mike, if you come down here, you must make a donation to everyone's collection. Or just give it all to me and I'll divide it up myself. :)

    Don't know if these are part of the newest wave, but this is the first time I've seen them. High Council Yoda and Destroyer Droids spotted at the Walmart on Meacham in Elk Grove Village. Also, Tie Bomber! It's really high on the shelf, so remember to look up.

    Has anyone seen any of the 2003s around here yet? (Padmé Conveyor Belt, Obi-Wan Acklay, etc.)


    I haven't, but then again, I haven't been out on a trench run (figure hunting to multiple stores in one day) in 2 weeks, so I wanted to know if anyone had begun to see them. :)

    Yah, I just saw one person in the collecting forum (New Aquis thread) say they got all the Jan.10 releases today, so I was just wondering if they were appearing around here. :)

    Geez...I don't see anything cool. No Silver Vader (Yes I know that's not in stores) No Compactor Sets, no Holiday Sets. Oh well.

    I'll stop whining and let you guys know that the Super K-Mart in Elk Grove Village is closing. Toys are currently 20% off. No good Hasbro stuff. But still some cool Lego sets.

    Got all 16 of the new 3 3/4" figures......the classic Boba Fett is really awesome....love Bariss and Aayla too....they are stand-outs...
    ....one of my favorites is Lama Su and the Clone boy....the rest are kinda ho-hum....
    just a re-hash...
    the Anakin Secret Ceremony also looks pretty good...got the mechanical arm thing going...

    next it is on to the new vehicles and Action Fleets....
