    Question Thank God it's Christmas... (SAGA stuff you passed over but were given)

    I was just thinking this over the weekend after having gotten a nice surprise from a friend. I hosted a Christmas party and a friend who has a bit of disposable income came bearing gifts. He remembered seeing the TRU 12" Luke w/Taun Taun and didn't think I had it so he got it for me. Needless to say, I was quite surprised and VERY pleased.

    I was thinking that there must be recent pieces that we had passed over due to cost or space or whatever and then received it as a gift.

    Who's next?

    OK... I BLOG. YOU READ. at http://jedipartner1967.livejournal.com

    I'd chime in on this subject, but I've already said what I'm getting for Christmas in a couple other threads.

    But...I'll say it again.

    Because I didn't have money at the time, I'm now getting the following for Christmas:
    Yoda with Chian
    Coleman Trebor
    Battle Droid, Arena Battle (red)
    Battle Droid Arena Battle (red)

    My mother bought me the Saga Wampa on Saturday. I know that isnt as suprising as a Luke and Tauntaun but i was happy with it.

    Silent Chazz, cool find with the Coleman Trebor. I found one over a week ago and am very glad that i did, i was scared that he would be another Ephant Mon.

    I'm getting $100 worth of Star Wars toys from Hasbro's online contest which ends today. They should arrive in time for Christmas, and when they do, I hope to get figures that I haven't got yet. I do regret not ordering a case of the 12" Biker Scout wave from EE when I had the chance. No one in my family is really exchanging gifts anymore, so it looks like Hasbro is coming through for me though!

    Well... I'd pretty much given up on ever finding the Geonosian War Room with Count Dooku and Poggle. Then I miraculously saw it while out shopping. There were only 2 left!!

    Thanks. Yep, only 2 left. I've been searching for it for months. For the Dooku and the Poggle mostly but also, I'm a fan of the Cinema Scenes. On days like that, I enjoy the hunt.

    Ha Ha LOL. That is so true for me too. My girlfriend last Christmas wanted to buy something Star Wars and she told me that she couldn't remember what I needed when she was in the store. My reply was this, "That's good, because whatever you see on the shelf I have had for months now, just get me a gift card or something." I stronly discourage anyone buying me anything Star Wars 'cause they'll just end up royally screwing the pooch. I'll either already haver the item or would never dream of buying it.
    Kitik Keed'kaks for everyone.

    You hit the nail on the head there. I know gift card seem impersonal but for collectors like us, it's a much better deal. We can actually get things we want/need as opposed to taking things back we already have etc.

    The only thing I'm getting of Star Wars from someone other than me is my fiancee and that's the Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy video game. She's gotten me a game or two for the past three years and that's worked out just fine in my book. 1st year Battle for Naboo (N64) 2nd year Bounty Hunter and Clone wars (PS2) and this year, Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

    Shoot, she even got me Starfighter, Jedi Starfighter, and KOTOR, over the past couple of years.

    The only other thing that I want as far as SW goes is the board game Epic Duels. I had a copy, but it "mysteriously" disappeared at a SW Halloween party I went to and I didn't realize it until the next day.
    Move along, move along
