    Well I ordered the new Rebel Fleet Trooper from the fan club, and it took less than 48 hours to arrive. Excellent service.

    Like the Imperial Trooper, this guy doesn't need a gun as an accessory as much as an iron. Get him Martha Stewart's phone number!!! LOL

    The gun is awfully small, but I like the unique poseability of the knees and ankles. Nice touch.

    Just recieved Leia with Barge gun, Imp officer, rebel trooper, QUeen decoy in black gown and FX-7

    There are all excellent figures. Hasbro are really out doing themselves lately. I especially like FX-7. Everyone of his little arms is articulated in two places ('shoulder' and elbow) and he has an Easter Egg on him -- a great little nod to ILM. Very sweet!

    FYI...Target has reduced their 12" figures down to $10.40 and their 3 3/4" figures down to $4.80. Not much of a selection at the stores I go to, but I found some good ones.

    Got some pretty good presents for Christmas.
    I got the TIE Interceptor, Luke in the Bacta Tank, and the FX-7 wave.

    Since my birthday is so close to Christmas, I may go and pick up the 12" Luke Skywalker Speeder Bike that's on sale right now.

    I'm pretty new to the collecting thing but I got a lot of great stuff from my girlfriend for Christmas. I got a couple of the Cinema scenes and I also received the original Burger King Star Wars glasses from 1977 in mint condition! I remember having them when I was a kid and I'm pretty psyched to have them again. I just got the ESB and ROTJ BK glasses off of Ebay to compelete the set.

    For Christmas I got the new Bespin Guard (awesome detail, IMO) and Sabe as the queen in battle gear. I got several other SW things, but those were the only figures I got. :)


    BTW, does anyone still go after vintage figures? It seems like most things in this thread are the new releases. Personally, the vintage figures have some of the most beautiful vehicles and creature. Those are my favorite to collect, and I was wondering if anyone else collects them!

    I'm envious Sithman. I've got most of my original Y-Wing from my youth, but its a little worse for wear.

    Anyway...

    Much to my surprise, Wal-Mart was well-stocked today. Picked up an Eeth Koth and two of the 25th Anniversary 2-packs, Luke and Leia, and Han and Chewie. The Han and Chewie are absolutely outstanding, but I'm a little underwhelemed by the other pair. Does anyone know if the Vader Obi-Wan 2-pack is out yet, or is it lagging behind the other sets?

    I picked up Eeth Koth last week. And because of a surge of restocks, I was able to get Saesee Tiin and Quuen Amidala-Theed Invasion today. :)

    Was in the Mall of America the other day and found out that Brian's Toys has a kiosk on the first floor. It was fun looking at all the figures they have there. Most were over priced though. :( I did manage to pick up four TPM figures for $17.00. I also picked up two Droid Fighter lego sets and Luke's landspeeder lego set for $10.00. I was disappointed at the Lego store in the MOA. They really don't have many Star Wars Legos there.
