    Oh yes, I'm familiar with the eternal collectors struggle. Always having to find room or new shelves!

    My room is in chaos. I'm going to be taking out a ton of empty boxes ( 7 years accumulation - all Hot Toys and Gentle Giant, etc) and get more shelves to fill up w/ my stuff that's been sitting on my floor.

    He’s so GOT DANG cute! With all these options now I’m glad I didn’t order anything yet. That quarter scale is mighty tempting.

    My Sideshow Child is here!!!! He's so stinkin' cute. People have been complaining about the pink on his face, but I put a couple of my toys next to him and they have no coloring on their faces - it just makes his stand out and look very realistic.

    I'm - slowly - working to update my shrine room. Whenever I get it done I'll take photos of him.

    Hopefully before the end of the month! Getting my room cleared out this weekend of piles of empty boxes. Then I need more bookshelves.

    My baby is here!!!! My child! My adorable little one! I feel like a proud new mama!!
    I love how you can stand and he can sit on a small low table and he looks up at you with the most expressive face and adorable eyes and ears!! He looks like he was reaching in the egg incubator and got caught red handed and turned Rosey faced from it.

    Looks pretty good. I've always liked Lando in that costume - I have a 12-inch figure of him.

    I'm excited - I'm down to my last payment on him. I really wish Sideshow would redo Boussh Leia. My helmet and staff broke on my figure. Helmet was stuck in box's packaging - flew out and crashed onto hard tile floor. Staff snapped in 1/2 when I tried putting it in her hand :(

    Their faces have hugely improved over time also.

    I'm hoarding Sideshow points like Smaug so that I can put a healthy amount down on Jabba so that I can significantly reduce his payments. In redoing my SW room, I'm getting room in my SW room for a bonus shelf and will have room for him.

    This isn't a really big deal to me - other than I'm saving points at the moment to chop off a chunk of Jabba's cost, I usually use my points when they come in on my next purchase. But it sucks for people who hoard them.

    I officially did it. I bit the bullet. End of March - the gangster will be mine!

    I got $147 off w/ Sideshow reward points and a coupon. Woot!

    I had some rewards and a promo code on sideshow, couldn't resist how inexpensive I was able to get my son the Kylo Ren Kotobukiya figure/statue from Sideshow. I hope he likes it. His vivid imagination has already shown Kylo Ren in the pose the figure has him in, so it's perfect! Now if I can just wait till his next birthday in November to give it to him.

    Someone might have already said this, but, I think I have figured out that perhaps Hot Toys will wait to announce Padme until May 2022. At least I can hope!!

    The Koto statues are nice. I'm sure that your son will love it.

    I really hope that they don't wait long. If they're smart they'll announce her, Kit Fisto, and any other AOTC figures THIS May so they'll be ready to ship in 2022.

    I have a feeling they're going to do what they did with Endor Leia (waited until they had Wicket to go with her) and wait to have AOTC Anakin ready to go with her.

    Thanks to a bunch of my figures all coming in at the end of the year, by end of month I should have another $30 or so in rewards waiting to be used. I'm thinking that I'll order the Sideshow 1/6 C-3PO. I've heard his fingers are rather fragile, but he would look great w/ my Jabba.
