    What have you brought or won recently.

    This week, I've brought the new POTJ B-wing and sandtrooper, and won a loose Graxol Kelvvyn from the Watto's box cinema scene (a seriously huge figure!), plus three of the 3 3/4" Max Rebo band figures. I only need Max Rebo for the whole set now.

    Well, I found a Senator Palpatine figure that was dirt cheap in mint condition that I have been searching ages for. I was happy. :)

    I also found all those other figures, I spoke of in the other thread. So I am really happy. :D

    I've never won anything related to SW but I do received a 12" POTJ IG-88 for my birthday in Feb this year from my working colleagues. I'm really touched!

    Its slow in the SW scene here in Singapore and I have briefly gone into buying 12" Dragon figs while waiting for the Death Star Trio of 12" to hit the shelves.
    Dragon's latest release Asia Pac Exclusives Biohazard fig I used to make him put on Han Hoth's gear, and he now looks like a manga style a-la Japanese comic Han Solo Hoth... and what matter most - tons of more articulations, thats real cool :)

    Max Rebo is a good figure; he was definitely my favorite from the band.

    I found the entire Duros wave last week at K-Mart. (K-Mart seems to be the place to find this wave). There were enough of them that I picked up and extra Duros to open. He kind of looks like James Coburn from the 60's with a big green mask on. I was a little disappointed in the articulation, but the paint job was excellent.

    Incom also just got some Rebo bans pairs....

    Your Welcome :)

    Myself, the last thin I found and purchased was a dirty Biker scout. I have seen the Ketwol wave at a Target of all places, but I have yet to see Disco Lando and his posse. Also the notorious P.L.O. Koon has eluded me, as do many things (Yes knowing IS half the battle)

    Hmm. Sounds like you got screwed by the 'We'll release the waves for 2 weeks to keep the collectors on their toes' philosophy Hasbro has adopted lately, Xizor. Lando and Co. have been off the shelves for quite a while around here. I'm a little concerned about the Sandtrooper wave as well. (Still haven't found that one.)

    I saw the Duros wave and the remnants of the Biker Scout wave at the local Wal~Mart this morning. They seem to be finding their way into more general release in the MidWest.

    I just picked up the aurra sing, because in my area any figures are hard to find.

    I've been able to find all but Ketwol in the new wave. And I just won the Final Lightsaber Duel 2 pack. We've been lucky here, the only POTJ figs I cant find are the R2 and Dejarik Chewie.

    Been kind of slow for me collecting wise (at least until the August release of Star Wars Evolution), but I picked up this on Ebay just for fun. A 1979 ESB Promo Coupon to see ESB in Washington, D.C. with C-3PO & R2-D2. I seem to remember having one of these as a kid or something similar. Probably paid more than I should have, but it will fit nicely with my other misc card & promo stuff.

    Well I've picked up some good POTJ figs here and there lately, but my most recent, and very cool, purchase has been an old POTF X-Wing from Toys R Us for only 4 dollars. What a steal!

    Lando and Co. have been off the shelves for quite a while around here.
    :(
    I never did find him; and ever since I caught the Magic of Myth show a couple months back, Lando's looked pretty good to me. Oh well.

    I found the Sandtrooper and Qui Gonn Jedi Training Armor this weekend at a TRU whilst in Kentucky.

    I figure if all the brown items on the figure were painted black and the head were resculpted a bit to look more like Sean Connery, Q-G would make for my idea of a pretty good Talon Karrde.
