    Once again collecting is at a down period

    I would have liked Hasbro to pump out a few more figures before the years end. There's not much to talk about here. I hope this isn't a trend for the next few years. I know it gets a little slow at non movie years, but it's already kinda dead. Thats just my 2 cent.

    I don't mind it. The Deluxe have yet to show up past Nexu/Ani w/ Geo along with the Acklay, but I really don't mind the slow down. A breather once in awhile is nice, especially after 52 figures from April to now, and theres still two left, not too mention the ones who still have to track down the newest ones like Ephant Mon.

    I don't know, I guess I like to chase the figures. I like the hunt, or is it I hate the hunt. I guess it's a love hate sort of thing. My interests are going towards Mcfarlane these days. They are pumping out many of my other favorite movie figures, but SW will always be a passion.

    I don't mind the down time much. It gives me a chance to save up more $ for later. And work on a few other toy lines too.

    The only other toy line I'm collecting is ArtAsylum's Star Trek figures. Haven't even decided if I'm buying their ships yet.

    In Star Wars I did finally decide to buy the 25th Anniversary scenes - Han/Chewie, Luke/Leia - only because I found the perfect Ben/Darth! I'm trying to make myself return them - I really didn't need them, or their expense (though they were on sale for around $9 each) but I buy to open stuff - there's no point in opening these, so...

    Meanwhile, If you want the challenge of the hunt, the rumor is that:

    Pamde Droid Factory (white outfit)
    Sand Person (Tusken Raider)
    Jedi Analysis Droids 2-pack
    Rebel Fleet Trooper (new head)
    Imp Officer (new head)
    Zuckuss (re-carded)
    Teebo (re-carded)

    are all out now - showing up very rarely at some Targets.

    You might find them by going out to the store before they open and waiting to be the first in...

    They MIGHT have these now, before about a month-2 months of non-ordering, inventory management sets in (where we'll listen to countless stories of how unfair distribution is, and how limited these figures are - all untrue). But if you want to hunt - now's your chance to get them before they are common peg-warmers by March.

    Tycho, you had to pay $9.00 for the Anniversary set...on sale, WOW!

    I just found these at KB Toys for $4.95 each. They had TONS of Vader and Ben sets along with Luke/Leia and one, yes one lonely Han/Chewie set. Needless to say, I now have a loose set of each in my collection (I paid full price for my MIMB sets 11 months ago ).

    I tell you though, these things should have been priced at $4.95 from the start, IMHO.
    May the force be with you.
