Han Solo: Death Star Escape
I don't know if it really counts as a collectible, but the TPM DVD is the first SW item I've bought in months. A pity I don't have more money, cause I keep seeing lots of POTJ figures I don't have on sale.
Ok, i got the DVD and my wife got from a friend of hers at work the R2-D2 Ice Cooler the real big one. Anybody know how much its worth?
My wife gave me my birthday presents today, I got the B-wing, a episode 1 T-shirt, a Jedi Hat, a Han solo CD-ROM game, and STAR WOIDS Documentry. I made out like a bandit today. WOOO HOOO!!!
I was lucky enough to receive these DVD promotional buttons from a friend at Kmart:
Just picked up the deluxe darth maul,the one with the lightsaber handleand moves. now all i need to complete those three is the obi-wan one, yay.
Obi-Wan Kenobi Jedi Training Gear
Luke Skywalker X-Wing Pilot
I acquired a 12" DSD to add to my collection of 12" bipedal droids.
I also saw at least 5 or 6 cases of the new Vader Emperor's wrath figs at Target. I already have them, so I didn't actually acquire anything, but I thought it was interesting to have seen such.
Got OBiwan deluxe from episode 1 collection. now i hjave all three. Whoohoo.
OK, I bought a load of suff at the Memorablia event here in the UK today.
POTF2 Pote Snitkin
POTF2 Death Star Trooper
POTF2 Rancor with Luke
POTJ Tusken Raider
POTJ Han Solo Death Star Escape
POTJ Leia Bespin Escape
POTJ Boss Nass
POTJ Luke X-wing pilot
POTJ Shmi Skywalker
POTJ Lando Calrissian
POTJ Ben Kenobi
I got three nice complete vintage stormtroopers, a vintage Ree Yees and biker scout, and Shmi.
Woo hoo! I walked into a new wave!
Darth Vader Emperor's Wrath
Hee hee. I happy.
I found the Luke in the Bacta Tank and shirtless Maul tonight when I hit my local Wal-Mart. They had a ton of these figures surprisingly.
The new trailer got me so excited about Star Wars, that I rushed to TRU to get back to collecting again. I picked up Anakin's Podracer for $7.98, 12" Electronic Darth Maul and Jar Jar Binks for $4.97 each and Ellors Madak for $7.99 (which is steep when compared to the other things I bought, but it's a cool fig).
Not really a collectible, but I bought issue #56 of the Star Wars Insider. It's the one with the dual cover (Qui-Gon and Obi in the waterfall on one side, Jay and Silent Bob on the other). Too bad they didn't have issue #57.
On Saturday, I found the Bacta Tank Luke at KMart. They also had the shirtless Maul, didn't get it, but now I'm considering picking that one up. I don't really like EU figures, but this one did look sharp, with a unique-looking accessory. I'm waiting on the new Leia and Amanaman, more than the first two!
I picked up the POTJ TIE Interceptor at Toys R Us. I haven't gotten any ships but this is one I really liked.
12" Luke on Speeder Bike
Shirtless Darth Maul
Luke in Bacta
Found Dagobah Vader & Darth Maul:Final Duel on clearance and picked up an extra of each.
12" Tie Fighter Pilot
I was given the Anakin, Maul, & Jar Jar face puzzle thingies as a gift that someone found on clearance for a buck a piece.
The round clear figure stands from the Official Site...I really like them and will be getting more, providing the site actually has them the next time I log on.
Seems like I picked up some other older stuff since the last time I posted, but I couldn't really say what exactly.
Non Star Wars related I picked up the 'Sting' replica sword from LOTR and it is a very nice collectible, sharp too. A little pricey but worth it if you're into swords or LOTR merchandise. Also picked up the 4 orc 1/4 cast helmets, nice collectibles and well worth the $10 price tag.
I got the Bacta tank Luke a couple days ago, nothin really major though.
The newest thing I've gotten was, well my girlfriend decided to give me one of my christmas presents early, so she handed me this box. I was like cool. I opened the box and there where 5 vintage carded figs. She'd gotten me Cheif Chirpa, Paploo, Logray and a Jawa on ROTJ and an ATAT Commander on Empire card. It wasn't too much of a surprise since i helped her snipe them on ebay, but I was surprised because she said that wasn't my "big" christmas present. The newest thing I've bought was the new Han sculpt with the stormtrooper belt and the new Luke X-Wing sculpt. Other new things:
ATAT Driver with slide
Anikan Skywalker with flashback thing
I stopped at a used bookstore in Boulder, Co and I got the 3 Scholastic movie books and a poster book for ESB. But more importantly I got a book called A guide to the Star Wars Universe from 1984 and (!) a Star Wars word study book called "Attack on Reading" from 1980. Never been written in and in almost perfect condition!
Needless to say, one of my better days.
Lets see, Picked up a few things today. I got the Darth Maul with training droid ( the Latest Deluxe model thing), Two old Micro machine playsets (got those for 1.97 a piece,) and the rare Tie Intercepter. So I think I did pretty well.
Ok, its christmas time so i gfuess im finnally finding stuff i need when i shouldn't be buying it. but anyway, got the Darth maul sith apprintise from the POTJ line. Also found some older figures, got 2-1B and Bossk today, going back tomorrow and seeing what else I need is there,.
Today I went to electronics Boutique and picked up 4 new figures.
-Queen Amidala (royal decoy)
-FX-7 (medical droid)
I'm getting back into the Young Jedi (Episode I) card game.... I'm gonna get some packs to expand my deck, it's just too awesome of a game to just put away in my closet forever.
