    Over the weekend I picked up all the Hallmark 2001 ornaments. I also finally found Aurra Sing at Target and picked up the 12" Tarpals/Kaadu as a clearance item while I was there.

    I found the B-Wing, completing my searching for the time being. I can't say much for the B-Wing, though. It's packaged nicely and the weathering looks good...but other than that it's just the old B-Wing with no battery operated lights. Plus I think $40 was a bit much for this considering that the figure looks awful familiar...

    Picked up the B-Wing on Tues. Love it. No complaints. Agree that $40 is a bit much but its so nice I don't care. You won't hear a peep out of me...

    A B-Wing would be the most recent addition to my collection - no complaints here: it's big, it's detailed and it makes the 3rd item in my collection that I won't open (besides my Y-Wing & assorted carded figures).

    I bought Ketwol and the Fans Choice figure last week. Didn't LucasFilm say that the Duros were actually an off-shoot of the Nemoudians? No mention of that with the figure.

    I picked up the R2, 3PO and Chewbacca palm-talkers the other day. They were tucked away on the top shelf in a Meijers Thrifty Acres. (They also had several figures from the Duros wave. The Christmas is slowly approaching).

    Wave 1 of my birthday has struck, giving me 4 boxes of Evolution cards...have about 10+ complete commons sets, all the chase cards + a handful of extras to trade and 3 Level A autograph cards (not getting an auto in one of the boxes blows). I have a sneaking suspision when Wave 2 (my wife's side of the family) strikes I may get another box. Waiting sucks.

    Things are slow here. Nothing new at Wally-World or TRU. I ordered a FF Death Star Droid fan club ed. and a POTJ OB1-Kenobi from ANH. Thought it was a good time to round out some figures I been trying to get but put off.

    Got 4 more Evolution autograph cards...one of which is the Anthony Daniels Level D autograph card!!!!!!! My wife suddenly became interested in my hobby for a few moments until I explained to her that I'm not going to sell the card. Need to remember to hid that binder....

    While cleaning out my old closet at my parents' house I found a box of my old Star Wars toys that I thought were sold at a garage sale. They've all been opened and played with (by me, when I was little). They're priceless. The coolest one I found was my stormtrooper with a broken foot that looks like he's peed himself 'coz he's sunbleached from the waist down. I left him in the garden one day with his head buried in the dirt after a painful interrogation by Lord Vader. :)
