I got good news and I got bad news...
The bad news? I bought some Ep. II stuff. I know- I know- I shouldn't have but when I saw the Royal Guards, I broke down and bought 2...and then 1 Deluxe Fett to pilot the Slave I I bought (I LOVE the retooling on this thing!) then a couple of Preview Clone Troopers and Jango Fetts, then a Super Battle Droid...then the book, the soundtrack, Doorku's and Anakin's lightsaber AND the Jedi Starfighter AND...
You get the idea ;)
I scored 2 TIE Bombers and a Snowspeeder yesterday, too- thanks Wal-Mart! Took the TIE home, opened her up and was instantly in love :D Boo yah! They had plenty when I left yesterday, too.
The GOOD news:
Since the new AF is all Target Exclusive and there is only 1 collector here in Bozeman, MT (I met him yesterday ;)), there is a good chance I can snag them for all if they end up being rare or tough to grab. Depending on how good the re-toolings are, I *MIGHT* go back down the AF vehicle road...MAYBE...MIGHT...who knows? ;) I hope they're decent though.
Anyway, as the product trickles out, keep me posted here and I will get what I can when I can for whom I can. I may be a bit player in the collecting world now that Episode 1 and POTJ is all done, but I'm not out of the show yet ;)
VT- Miss you man! The FX-7 fixing an Enterprise piccy's came out :) I'll print one up- gimme an address to send it to.
R2- Long time no talky- say, are the pics of all of us still on the web? If so, could ya' point me there?
Anyone I had deals with: firstname.lastname@example.org before I forget :p
There ya go!
Ep. II is starting to get me warmed up a bit...heh.
On a weird note- was anyone else who REALLY liked MM's from Episode 1 kinda' psychologically damaged when they saw ACTION FIGURES on a BLUE card instead of MM's? Or was that just me? ;)
you Miss me? now i hurd evrythin ;) did All 3 pix come out? hope so
dee2: pleez pleez let ws email you pix so you can post em on teatime page? that'd make for superconvenient viewing, esp since i don't maintain any webpages :D
as indicated on huntthred, i thought the preview clones had dopey poses & weathering so i waited for the red-accented one :) ditto preview & deluxe jango, from what i can see i much prefer regular version :) anyone know if babyboba's jetpack is significantly diff from jango's? if so plz enumerate diffs for me, i'm tryina decide if i should bother w/babyboba's pack :)
assuming i can't score one down here, if snowsp goes on sale later, maybe pick me up one? cuz tokyo joe would want figure(s) (is luke a new sculpt or just dack?), and b'jr would take the leftover snowsp :) btw, does tiebomber have an exclusive figure or is it virtually same as a previous figure (as with tie int's pilot)?
actually i think this blue ep2 packaging's a-ok, i like its wispy abstract background & all; i just wish some had mms inside :frus:
