Hey guys and gals! :D

First of all, let me say its great to finally communicate with fellow Star Wars fanatics like myself:). I'm 23(will be 24 on the 28th), and I've been a Star Wars freak as long as I can remember. I had everything(toy related) up to around 98, then like an IDIOT I decided to stop collecting, and sell my entire collection in an effort to 'grow out of it'.

Then, in 99(yeah, a whole year later lol), I realized its ok to be a adult, and collect toys. The Episode 1 figures changed my mind I guess(yes, I happen to love both prequels). Anyway, now on to today. The other day while in Wal-Mart, I found new figures at last. The last figures I found was SC Anakin, and factory chase Padme.

I must say I'm VERY satisfied with my new finds:) Here is my quick reviews....

SNOWTROOPER-Fantastic sculpt!!!! It totally dwarfs the potf2 ST in quality. My only complaints, is the stupid RED laser, and I would have been excited over ball jointed shoulders, but hey the rest of it makes up for it. RANK:9

WAT TAMBOR-Great figure in my opinion. It definitely lacks in the articulation department, but this character really doesn't require it. Looks awesome in a war room diorama, and that's really all I could ask for:) RANK:9

COLEMAN TREBOR-WOOOOOW, I font think I have any complaints what so ever. This truly is a image of what Star Wars figures are about, and the reason I fell in love with them. Perfect sculpt, perfect articulation, no action feature, just perfect IMO.:) rank:10+

LT. DANNI FAYTONNI-Yet another great example of a great SW action figure. GREAT articulation, great base/display piece(although I had a time getting the table to pop into the floor piece). Again, no action feature, or button which I'm always grateful for. The only thing I see wrong is the head. I think the face is pretty accurate, but the hair seems a bit too much, and not all that close. RANK:9

HAN SOLO HOTH-VVVVVVVVVVVery nice!!!!!!!!! This one puts the original to shame!!!! Super great accessories, and all around great sculpt. Also, he can ride a Taun Taun PERFECTLY!!!!! Now all I need is a extra Taun Taun(I heard there is one coming out in a gift set familiar to the ultimate bounty set?) RANK:10

I also found the new Emperor(lol :rolleyes: ), Jedi Luke, Mynock Chewie,and Boba, but passed on them all do to their appearances. The emperor is pathetic, I cant for the life of me see how it was approved.

Well, anyway, I hope to discuss SW with everyone here now, and I'm very glade to meet you all. :happy: :cool:

Welcome aboard dude. Hope you enjoy it here. Anyways I wish I could find those figures. I just found the red battle droid wave and all. Hopefully I will own those by 2010.

Welcome to the forums, glad to have you here.

About your screen scenes......you can try other stores or meet a nice trader like myself and trade me for what you need. I would have taken one of each of the figures you passed on. And I still need the leuitenant, emperor, coleman, wat, WA-7 (waitress), yoda and chian, ashla and jempa, aayla secura, barriss offee, padme wedding, and maul repack. Let me know if you want to work a trade. (I need the figures mint on near mint or mint cards please.) My email is untyl@aol.com. If anyone else sees this and wants to trade figures for screen scenes, let me know! Thanks! ;)

Anyways...welcome aboard...I hope you have fun here!

If you haven't already, check out the "photo gallery" and then "members collections", I'm sure you'll see a lot of cool collections there! I love seeing other members collections and how they display them. Well, welcome! As you'll notice in my avatar, I'm a Tusken Raider and I also have a set of Stormtrooper armor. Enjoy your stay at SSG, cause you can never leave!

Yeah, welcome my friend. I havent been here very long compared to most of these folks, but they are good people. If you need to trade, have people help you get figures, or just have a question, they can help.

Those were killer findings. I have had all that stuff pre ordered since perhaps the beginning of civilization and still havent got it, and your finding em all in stores. Thats great. and I hate you

I kid.
nice findings. my names keith and if I can ever help you, let me know

Wow, you made quite a catch. I found my screen scenes at Target but be prepared to pay when you see them. I dont know how hard they are to find either. I only seen two sets and i picked up one and never saw the others again. But i hope you enjoy the forums.

It's great that you found new figures. It's hard to be a collector and not be able to find them!

Welcome to the forums!
Much like you I took some time off from collecting. Drinking beer seemed like a better use of money than finely shaped plastic. College will do that I guess.
I took off from '97 till E2. I've been able to get just about everything, although the credit cards felt it. I'm just about now paying off all the goodies, but a good collection is worth it.
These forums have really helped me out, not only do you get to see pictures of new stuff in advance, but you also get word on when shipments are hitting so you know when to check out the stores.
One of the coolest things I monitor is case assortments. That way whne I send my girlfriend to the store I can tell her over the phone exactly what to look for.
