    It's finally MINE!! The elusive POTJ Masters of the Dark Side 2-pack arrived today. Yes I got it off of eBay, which means yes, I paid higher than retail, but hey, I'm a completist and this is one of the coolest sets to have. But I did pay well under the price Tomart's has it at. ;)

    Saturday I bought the Epidode II teaser poster from a Suncoast in MI. Full 27*40 inches with the little "produced for theatrical distribution" label on the shrinkwrap.

    I was so amazed to find it. They must have just gotten them, because there were five in their rack, and I can't imagine five lasting all week even around here. $14.99 quite well spent.

    I finally managed to get hold of a Princess Leia Organa Solo EU figure (MOMC) for a decent price. Its a pretty rare item over here in the UK.

    I was able to buy a yoda figure really cheap and he is the last one I needed to complete my jedi collection ( this does not include eth koth because I can't find him in any store I visited)

    Only just got the Holiday Special today. After watching the first minute of it before I had to leave the house it looks every bit as embarrassing as I thought it would be!!

    The local KB started restocking Episode I figures on the Darth Maul card. I picked up a Ric Olie and Padme Naberrie. I hadn't bought those before. If I see a R2-B1 or hologram Sidious, it's all mine.

    Hopefully I'll go out tomorrow and find the FX-7 wave or the Zutton one... or perhaps even BoShek (though I doubt it).

    I finally found the "soft goods" Darth Maul for $2.99 at KB. All I need now is Obi-Wan to complete the "soft goods" trio.

    I think PA exists in some sort of time warp. I just not got the Lando Bespin escape figs - arrording to NiubNiub's Universe, they've been out since March 2001...! :eek:

    Well, picked up Lando Bespin, Leia General, Tessek, and R2-Q5 with glowy red Death Star accesory. :D

    Hopefully the FX-7 wave hits sometime during the next millennium.

    We don't (didn't?) even get the Y-Wing, B-Wing or TIE Int yet!

    Grahhhh!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, I agree. PA does exist in a time warp. But things are starting to pick up around my area. A few months ago I saw the B-Wing at a local Target, but no Y-Wing or TIE Interceptor. I was stupid not to buy it. Back in the summer it was really bad!

    Last night I picked up the Han & Chewie 25th Anniversary pack. Man, I'm lucky I found them. Ever since they came out, the shelves have been empty. And last week I picked up the 12" Luke and Yoda.

    I've seen 12" Luke & Yoda, and the 25th anniversary things, but it's new single figs that are the problem.

    Silac:

    "FX-7
    Queen Decoy
    Imperial Officer
    Rebel Trooper"

    Just picked up these exact 4. Looking for the Bo Shek wave, no luck yet.

    As for the PA folks we have a Time Warping TRU in Norfolk VA, I saw the Lando wave there 2 weeks ago and picked up and Additional Black R2 for a fellow collector.

    I picked up Luke X-Wing Pilot today.Actually my mother bought it for me.

    I think the face sculpt on it is terrible.He looks like a skinny headed bucktoothed inbred.
