    It dawned on me right after I got my RotS preview
    figures that the next two months are going to be
    pretty slow in terms of new stuff coming out. The
    CW figures are already out. The POTC has already hit
    in most places. What will everyone be doing to kill
    the time between now and April 2nd?

    Going back and picking up things you missed the past
    few months?

    Filling out your vintage collection?

    Devoting time/money to another line/hobby?

    Hoarding money for the RotS onslaught?

    Chipping in and buying Juke Skywalker a vintage
    sitdown Star Wars video Arcade game?

    Other?

    Waiting and hoping for some decent ROTS lego other than the ARC.

    After I buy the preview toys I'll be hoarding my money for the RotS onslaught The only Star Wars items I plan to buy between now and April 2nd is the Clone Wars DVD and any magazines that have a RotS Cover story.

    I'm also saving for Celebration 3 and I've also made a list of all the ROTS stuff I want to get (based on those awesome pics that have come out so far) and budgeting my money around that.

    It all depends on whether I get a large tax refund and if I get a well paying job lined up for after C3.

    There are some things I would like to get my hands on soon, but after having to drop almost $1000 on car repairs to pass inspection as well as C3 expenses, I can't comfortably buy much right now.

    BTW, need tax advice? PM me.

    I'm trying to save money for a Park Saber, but I found a nice collection of Vintage figures at an antique mall yesterday, so I'll probably buy some of those until the RotS line starts.

    Mostly buying lots of old stuff on ebay. Unfortunately, I had to sell most of my collection in order to pay for my senior year of college, but now that that is all finished, time to hunt for my old stuff! (and also saving for episode 3 stuff - I hope we are literally bombarded with unleashed figs)

    You've got the first quarter on the console! (Anyone
    remember doing that, putting your quarter on the
    console to say 'I got next'?)

    i never did actually answer the question about the next two months. i'll be picking up whatever i find--hopefully a few unleashed, darth tater, etc.--and saving up for ROTS. i'm getting more excited everyday!

    and if you haven't done so yet, check out the new wal-mart display photos on rebelscum.com. i've been drooling all day.

    JUKE- glad to hear your mother is doing better.

    Over the next two months? Hmm...

    Well, I've already got the four preview figures, and I know that Darth Tater is coming out on Tuesday, so I might have to get me one of him. I still haven't found the Unleashed Vader repack, so I'll be on the lookout for him, too. And then I'll be getting the Stormtrooper whenever he comes out. As far as figures go, I need to find a Sly Moore, though I have to wonder if we'll be seeing any more now that this newer stuff is starting to ship.

    I've filled almost every hole in my collection, so the few that remain can wait til well after April 2nd. But between now and then, I'm definitely picking up Unleashed Aurra, IG-88 and Stormtrooper.

    Well, I'll actually be pretty busy for the next two months... For the past few weeks, I've been slowly packing ALL my star wars stuff into boxes because I'm quitting my job (effective in 10 working days), moving all my stuff (including my packed toys) to my hometown (which is only an hours plane ride from the city I am in now), and moving to London!

    So all you London collectors, make some room in your circle for me! =)

    ... If anything, I'll just buy the new Unleashed before I leave.

    Buying the Preview figures and then saving money for CIII!!!

    I saw so many cool things for sale at FX in Orlando this weekend that I can't wait to see what is available at CIII.

    Catching up on OTC figures like the Sandtrooper and Imperial Scanning Trooper. Hitting KB looking for hard to find figs on clearence and patiently waiting (yeah right) for Cel 3 and Ep 3.

    I've got my eyes on a couple of MR sabers from ebay (including Dooku limited edition and a Luke Skywalker ROTJ lightsaber "elite edition").
