    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.

    I acquired a 12" DSD to add to my collection of 12" bipedal droids. :D

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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:

    Teaser Poster
    Shmi Skywalker
    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.

    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.
