    Wal-Mart on Winchester past Riverdale had a BUNCH of the new Unleashed Clone Troopers, Chewies, and Lukes.

    I finally found Joker and Robin figures! They were at Target off Southern/Cottonwood in 2-paks with Batman. They also had a bunch of the first wave of animated Clone Wars figs, and 1 each of the second wave- except for Yoda...my search continues. I'm hoping they'll do a General Kenobi in armor/robes and that red trooper with the two blaster pistols!

    Hey guys I wanted to let ya know I found an Obi-wan and Darth maul collector figure/glass @ super target. Might be some more around your area targets, but didn't find any @ the Target off Southern. I'll bring the glasses this weekend for whoever wants one.

    Groovy- I think there are supposed to be 4 or so. I remember posting about them a while back.

    I've got my Joke and Robin now. I just have to get a Mr. Freeze...

    I'm going to have to stop myself from collecting anything more for a while.... I'm going broke! Someone's going to have to separate me from my pusher and put me in a 12-step program!

    Sorry I missed your call last night, John. I accidentally left my cell phone in the car. Give me a shout sometime during your lunch break.

    There's only a couple things I'm going to collect for now. Batman- the Mr. Freeze figure and the large Batmobile from HotWheels. SW- CW Yoda, and any of the future animated waves, those glasses at Target- at least the Maul one, that new Unleashed Hoth Luke, and of course the Admiral Ozzel figure when it hits! I'm going to stay away from ebay- unless it's to sell something!

    Oh, just saw shots of the guy's collection in Siongapore that I bought those two prototypes from- holy $#*%! He's got glass cases with prototypes and carded figures out the wahzoo!

    Lin want...

    Woo Hoo! The unleashed line need to grow a bit quicker! I am only missing Mace and Sidious From my unleashed collection but I wish I could open some of them i.e. Stripper Leia but the good thing is that some of the figs will be re-issued this year!

    Must..have.. 'pole dance Leia'...

    Actually, I bought the Unleashed Hoth/Speeder Luke last night. I also found one of the HotWheels Batmobile I've been looking for-well, actually two of them! I just glanced as I walked past the HW section and BAM- there it was! I quickly put it in my basket under the Luke figure to protect it from any predators as I thought, "Mine!Mine!Mine!"

    Lin: If I get the Unleashed Leia, can you alter her to make it look like she has a bunch of dollar bills hanging from out of her bikini waistband?

    You bet! Maybe we can even come up with a neon 'Platinum Plus' or 'Babes' sign to display her with!

    That was the old Unleashed Padme, Ben. They confiscated her peanuts, so to speak, in later releases. Rhonda has the "Padme: Unleashed in a Chilly Room" figure.

    Lin: I have seen a custom figure of a Twilek dancer or Jedi where they modified an Unleashed Leia. It looked really good. I can't remember if I saw it online or in Insider.

    Saw this on TFN- keep your eyes out, Lin want!

    According to the Official Site?s Cargo Bay collectibles database, the Unleashed line is entering the variation game made popular by both Hasbro?s 3 3/4? and Gentle Giant?s Clone Troopers. Despite the January date shown on the site?s description, there have been no reports of this being found yet. Props to eagle-eyed Rebelscum reader Al Bundy for spotting the variation.
    Reported by Rebelscum.com


    Also, I've heard reports of Adm. Ozzel out there on the shelves. I need a few to customize into the 'toastmster'..!

    I'm heading to Target during lunch- wish me luck!

    Just saw this on boingboing.net. Some guy in the UK is selling his replica of Darth Vader's flagship; it's made out of wood, is 2 meters x 1.5 meters x 1 meter, and (in English pounds) is only a paltry £305 (about $545 in US dollars) on eBay right now. And shipping and handling is free (well, within the United Kingdom, anyway)! It's built to the same scale as the 4" figurines, and sure beats the hell out of using your little sister's Barbie dollhouse.

    Here is the eBay link, if you want to Supersize the photos and drool.

    Less than 48 hours left on that Darth Vader flagship from the UK, folks! And it's only went up to 315 pounds (~$560). Of course, it'll probably cost that much just to courier it across the Atlantic to the FedEx facility in Memphis.

    If you miss out on that, you can always add a 2nd car to your driveway with a bid on the street-driveable "Back to the Future" Delorean. It started at a $10K bid, and is now up to only $35.1K

    Bad, bad toys for bad, bad boys...

    "Tell him about the Twinkie."


    I saw someone a few years back ebaying a full scale X-Wing that they had in their backyard. I think it was going for $10-20K. If I ever get rich, the one thing I will have to buy is a 60's Batmobile!
