    Sal: I'll check out Toys B Us by the Mall of Murder on the way home tomorrow. I think I saw one there. I can't remember if it was TBU or Walmart in Raleigh where I saw one last. There's always K-Mart on Austein Peay. SW figures don't sell worth a sh...darn there.

    Anybody else you're looking for?

    I like the POTF figures. I have quite a few of them. I like the classic figures from the latest collection, too.

    Oooo....Do you have the Cantina characters with their respective parts of the bar? I saw a buttload of those at the Raleigh WalMart!

    Hey Tim! No I didnt like the cantina figs so much so i skipped on those since I was still trying to complete my 3 3/4" figs set. I still havent seen any of the new figs for this year :( I dont know what to do about the newer waves since they get pretty pricey to get them all online.

    Sal: Ephont Mon is the one that looks like a really long-faced warthog, right? I'll keep a lookout for him.

    I want the POTF Vader/Anakin with removeable helmet like you have. Other than that, I have no friggin clue which ones I want. I wish they'd come out with the diarama-type set of the Luke/Anakin scene from the end of ROTJ. That would be excellent!

    Maybe I should email Hasbro eighteen times a day until they do it.

    Hey Tim I did see the 12" Leia in the Bousche disguise with the Han in Carbonite but I was so disappointed with the Leia body its a bit to Barbi-ish. Hasbro promised a new female body but its delayed so this is there way if making a buck on the old body mold. The costume is cool but it needs the new body before I buy it. EPHANT MON is hard to find for some reason!

    They guy you saw is Teemto Pagalies he was one of the pod racer pilots but they never made his pod racer so this toy is useless!

    I am really looking forward to the 12" scale Yoda since I missed out on him the first time around in his ESB garb. And that biker scout looks sweet!!! I am a bit disappointed with the BROWN vest for ROTJ Luke this is the same mistake they did with the previous release and they should release Luke with his Cloak from ROTJ but his new head sculpt and Saber hilt sculpt look great! Which one will you be looking for???

    those ewoks rock! i still haven't found ephant mon and refuse to pay jacked up prices on the net for it. I can go without, as I'm tired of trying to be a completest. It's too expensive.

    What in the Blue Milk is this???

    [image=http://www.rebelscum.com/toys2/tomy2003_yoda.jpg]

    It looks more like Yoghurt from the movie SpaceBalls than Yoda!!! Its like I expect to squeeze it and for it to say "May the Schwartz be with you!"

    And what in the Blue Milk is this one supposed to be??? A Carebear dressed for Halloween!!!

    [image=http://www.rebelscum.com/toys2/tomy2003_wicket.jpg]

    And this one looks like Kenny from Southpark after he gets hit with lightning.

    JUST A LITTLE FYI. WHILE SUFFERING WITH NOT HAVING CABLE T.V. I SAW ON PBS'S ANTIQUE ROAD SHOW A KID WITH A COLLECTION OF THE OLD ORIGINAL FIGURES THAT INCLUDED A HUMAN SIZED SNAGGLE TOOTH DRESSED IN BLUE. THE GUY WHO WAS DOING THE VALUE ESTIMATE FOR THE KID SAID THAT THIS FIGURE ALONE WAS WORTH 150 DOLLARS. INTERESTING?

    OK, that's scary. Maybe he has a cardboard and plastic fetish.

    I just got POTF Han in Carbonite and POTF C-3PO for $4 each (incl. shipping) on ebay. I also got POTF Vader with Removeable Helmet for $8.

    www.yestertoys.com has the first couple of waves of the 2003 figures available including Aayla Secura, Red Battle Droid and the Bear Clan. I've ordered from them before and they area good place to get stuff from off the net.

    Got my Ephant Mon in the mail today. That's one huge figure. Worth the 8.99 I paid for it. I'm going to pick up some stuff I won in an auction on ebay today. He lives in memphis. Possible new member to the group. we will see.

    I stopped in my local Wal-Mart SuperCenter this morning for coffee creamer (CoffeeMate French Vanilla...this stuff is addictive) and decided to check on SW figures while I was there. Wow! They actually had NEW ones!! They had the new Collection 2 figures: Han Solo ANH, Luke Skywalker ROTJ Throne Room duel, Darth Vader ROTJ Throne Room Duel, and they also had one Aayla Secura figure...of course, now they have none. I had to buy that hot thing. Anyway, if you need any of these...just let me know and I'll pick up whatever you need.

    Hey Sal-
    Those toy shots are too funny. Have you thought about doing a Star Wars Hall of Shame? There could be shots of goofy toys, strange fans from another planet, movie goofs, bad videos(Star Wars Kid Reloaded anyone?) Wizard magazine has a column they do every month on strange things found on ebay.

    I've kinda slacked off on my SW toy collecting. I think the last one I bought was the Jengo Fett with the removeable helmet. My house is just WAY too small and cramped from the stuff I had as a kid! I do have a big 14" Vader model I want to put together for the next Wonderfest I go to. It'll have the light up saber, chest, and belt. I may see about trying to wire him up for sound as well- but I'll be lucky to get the lights working!

    Chris!!! Dude! It's been too long!

    Have you checked out the Toys B Us out by the Mall of Murder? Their SW stuff doesn't seem to move so well.

    I do like the idea of the top 10 worst SW toys, even if it's a fake collecting page.

    You know, those Jar Jar Binks Nose Hair Clippers weren't a big seller.

    Cool. I'll have to take a pic of my SW room since it will turn into a nursery shortly! Me and my wife call it the Jedi room since I have all my stuff on display.

    I stopped by the Toys R Us by the Mall of Murder a few days ago, the only thing they had new was the clone wars jedi starfighter. The same goes for the Toys R Us out by the Wolfchase. I'll have to check my neighborhood Walmart and Target tonight. In other words, still nothing newer than Clone Trooper Pilots round my way. Sad isn't it.
