Found these at a yard sale :)



That's an awesome garage sale find! I recently got that Chirpa and DS Gunner of ebay. Those are great figures. I'd love to have that R5.

Still no Black Series up here. It looks like they are slowly flowing across the southern states from the West coast.

Here is Wave 3 of Black series....if Wave 1 and 2 don't totally screw up the distribution for these. There's some carry-forwards and some useful army-builders with the Stormtrooper. Very excited for Vizam.

I hope I can get a Mara Jade and a Darth Plageuis--but judging how impossible it was to get a Darth Malgus here when that wave hit all the Targets (and I'm almost sure a Target employee was plucking those out of the cases)-- I'm just going to assume that I am never going to get those two figures.

The Black Series – Wave 3
Darth Vader
Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony)
Clone Pilot
Luminara Unduli
41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper
Stormtrooper
Mara Jade Skywalker
Merumeru
Vizam
Darth Plageuis
Mace Windu (The Clone Wars)
Commander Neyo

Saw the Mission packs last week in the stores-- no SW Black yet (and that was with Fandomfest in town)

Finally, a 3-3/4" SW figure I'm excited about… Torryn Farr! At last a new and never-before-made character

I had almost forgotten that Toys R Us had exclusive Geonosis Jedi Knight figures out. I picked up both sets today and I'm glad to see new movie-based characters in figure form.

Score! Found these at Target last night:

Luminara Unduli
41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper
Stormtrooper
Mara Jade Skywalker
Merumeru

I picked up Mara, the Clone, and Meru. Mara is pretty nice, but she does suffer from "80's" hair. Luke needs to tell her to cut back on the hair spray a little. :lol:

Scored again!

Got the Kmart scanning crew and Ewok catapult yesterday. My Kmart had these in some abundance AND on sale.

Note: the scanning crew had two 2-packs associated with it, so be careful to get both.

I kinda want the Black Series Mara Jade, but I haven't seen any of the newer ones at retail, and some of my local target don't even have the Black Series at all. One target still has Vintage collection 4Lom, QC, and a Naboo trooper!

I got both Scanning Crew packs, but BARELY. The pack with the top Scanner and Stormtrooper were flying off the shelves the second they were stocked and I couldn't drive to Kmarts fast enough. Got the last one though.

The Catapault on the other hand, seemed to take weeks to arrive here after the rest of the country. But then each store got a case of 8 and they're not really selling. I even passed it up when it was on sale for $16. After hearing about people getting AT-RTs for $4 last year I decided no, wait, try to get a deal for once.

I haven't seeing ANY Mara Jade wave and i'm looking. The only BS basic figure I've bought so far is Padme. Saw her once and never again. i'd like that Biggs, but I'd like to see a sale. The only figure I'm excited about is Vizam. Not much at this scale that i am excited for this year.

The Scanning Crew sets are my favorite purchase of the year , so far, for this scale. Just hoping for a Ree-Yees and Hammerhead and maybe a Squidhead at this point. A re-release of Ponda Baba and Hoth Rebel soldier would be nice. And any OT stuff, really. But I don't expect much until EP.7 in 2015, I suppose. But if they save these characters for a relaunch of The Vintage Collection, I would be more than happy with that. I so, so, so miss The Vintage Collection.

I got a Mara Jade Skywalker from Hasbro Toy Shop on Black Friday. It was 20% off and free shipping. I ended up paying less than retail for it.

Found this at my local Target. 6 inch Boba Fett! Asked an associate to see what he had in the back. He pulled this out and a few others.

And yes he is as awesome as the online pics of him show

Does anybody follow The Clone Wars lines at all. I have been really liking the small amount I can find but it seems like Ebay and Amazon want some pretty high prices for figures that don't have a lot of demand.

WEll since the line was cancelled almost a year ago-- you are at the whims of the resale market...

Your best bet is to buy large lots if you want a decent price-- which ones are you seeing high prices on?-- Some of those figure are almost 6-7 years old now-- so it depends on who you want-- as many of the unique characters that were fan favorites-- were only usually released in one assortment.

I was excited for him until I saw the 5 POA mentioned. Looks like the Rebels line isn't going to follow the Clone Wars model. :cry:

Oh well, maybe there'll be a deluxe version of some of the characters.
