Does anyone here collect Star Wars figures? It's one of my favorite toy-lines, and I have 200+ figures.
So, does anyone else collect them?

Yeah bro! I have the 86' Kenner Obi Wan, Tatooine Short Robe Luke and Ceremonial Gear luke.

I also have a MIB Boba Fett error card from the Clone Wars run.

Dude, I am a HUUUUUGE Star Wars collector. I've got a 200+ collection too and it is probably my favorite toy line of all. TMNT is close, but I had waaaay more SW toys as a kid. Most of my figures are from the power of the force lines from the 90s but I also have a lot of vintage and episode I figures, some episode II figs, and 0 from Episode III. Plus TONS of vehicles, back in high school I had them hanging from the ceiling with fishing line to make them seem like they were flying around- it looked awesome! Maybe I can find a pic. If I had to pick my all time favorite figure and vehicle, they would probably be the 300th edition Boba Fett and the At-At walker. That was one of my favorite birthdays the year I got that walker...

Sorry about not having any pics, but my collection is currently stored in my parents' basement.

I dont have any of the modern vintage line. I've seen them and they look great, I just dont have the cash to spend on figures lately.

Can you narrow down any favorites?

Sure, wave 1 C3-P0, Clone Trooper Lieutenant, and Darth Malgus are my personal favorites.

I have piles of Star Wars stuff in my basement. I got out around 2004-05, when I could no longer justify spending money on toys. I've probably got a few hundred figures sitting in boxes and tons of vehicles/playsets/collectible junk. My favourites were the CN Clone Wars figures they put out that seemed impossible to find. Mace Windu in particular was bad f*cking ass.

I went crazy collecting the action figures through Revenge of the Sith and a little beyond that. Then all the figures started looking the same and it was just too much for me. I would actually like to sell these, but at the same time am too lazy to do it in such a way to make it worth the effort. And I don't think these are worth a whole lot anyways.

In the last few years the only figures I've bought are a handful of the vintage-style figures of my favorite characters (Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, and Padme).

I also have a bunch of the 1/6 scale figures from Sideshow and some of the mini busts from Gentle Giant. Again, Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon, plus other Jedi characters and a few others. I thought I was done with these until they recently released a 1/6 scale Episode I Obi-Wan (now I have 5 Obi-Wans - Episodes 1, 2, 3, 4 and Clone Wars).

And even though it is HUGE and I have absolutely no where to display it, I got the recent Obi-Wan Mythos statue from Sideshow because it is just too amazing. I had a bunch of rewards points saved from buying all those 1/6 scale figures, which paid for more than half of it.

In general my Star Wars collecting days are over, but I'm still a sucker for quality Obi-Wan or Qui-Gon items.

That's the one. The General Grevious from that line was also really great.

I only normally pick 'em up for customs, but I do have a Darth Vader that I got as a random Christmas present that I use for as a SoulCalibur figure. I pick up them on occasion for my dad. He really likes them, and once in a while I find a good deal on the harder to find stuff like R2-KT.

Ditto, him and Lee are just so badass! I remember the first time I saw Horror of Dracula, with Lee as Dracula and Cushing as Van Helsing, blew me away and is still my favorite dracula movie to this day.

Me! I have an old POF2 one.

Awesome! he is one of the few original characters that I never got a figure of, or really ever even saw a figure of back in the stores way back when. Though I wish I did have one, he's just about the only person in the galaxy (without force powers) that can be like "Stfu Vader, we got real work to do..." without getting force choked lol. Did the pof2 line make him look super buff like alot of the other characters?

I love Star wars. Especially the micro fleet! Man I had a lot of Star wars back in the day. To be honest, I'm selling all of it on ebay right now as I decided to focus my collection on TMNT and other lines.

I'd love for someone here to get them as I want it all to go to a good home.

I have an AT-AT, vintage ewoks, the Falcon, among many other things.

It's all in pretty good condition.

star wars black series for pre-order on amazon now. just search and you'll find them all. Both the smaller and 6" figures. Sadly they did jack the prices up a little. I am thinking about using BBTS... i can't find them cheaper anywhere else (including the shipping)

I'm only interested in the 6" stuff but I might get the 3.5" vader simply because I don't currently have a vader figure :P

the amazon listings are also interesting because you can see each figure in-packaging in the product details

I bought as much as I could from the "sneak peek" Attack of the Clones through to the first few waves of Revenge Of The Sith, concentrating on the 3 and 3/4 stuff (though I have a fair few 12'')

I don't really buy any anymore because I have WAAAAY too many of them...I just went nuts for a couple of years!!!
I did pick up Dr Evazan a while ago though (who I always called/called bumb faced man as a kid/now)

In retrospect I only care about the stuff from the original movies :D

I have a few SW figures as well, and my hubby still has his old Vader carry-case with all his figures in it. His collection has the Luke with the yellow light-saber, and I have Mara Jade (my fave piece!) and a Special Edition Jedi Luke that was part of a promotion when the SE RotJ was released in theaters. It was one of only 1000, and they were only given out to theater employees. A friend of mine worked in a movie theater, and got two- he gave me one of them.

I also have the Queen Amidala in the red gown (the one from the beginning of PM with the long hair-tails on the sides.) Most of my collection is still in the packages, but unfortunately, that one is not, as two of my cousins got into my collection while we were living with my grandmother (and my uncle and said cousins) and they opened several of them. Fortunately, the Mara and the SE Luke are still safe!

I started collecting with Power of the Force figures, went really nuts around the time Episode I came out up until about a year later, and after that was only sporadically into it through Episodes II and III. At that point, I was collecting several toy lines at once while starting to make less and less money at work, so something had to give. I mostly focused on figures, although I did pick up a Millennium Falcon in 1999 or 2000, and collected several of the battery-powered toy lightsabers. Those things were so bad-ass until those movie replica ones started being made; by then I couldn't get one because I had to more or less stop collecting everything due to lack of funds.

I was never really hard-core, though. With lines I collect, I mostly focus on main characters in their most familiar or iconic looks, then branch out into secondary characters, variants, and more obscure or "background" characters if I can afford it and/or feel it's justified. Since I know getting everything is impossible, I try to, at best, get one of everyone "important". Star Wars became really frustrating for me, though, because between PotF and the time Episode I had been out for a year, I had many of the main characters and figured the "hard part" was over. But then they started releasing newer, better sculpts of those figures that fit in better with the Episodes I-III lines, and I felt like I'd wasted 5 years and tons of money, so I sort of just quit rather than spend a fortune collecting "better" figures of characters I already had.

It was a crazy time in my life; some paychecks, toys had more priority than food, and looking back, that's pretty silly. Although, I did have a lot more fun in general than I do now, so maybe it's since I've "matured" that I've lost perspective and been living wrong, I don't know. Due to financial reasons, I don't collect any toy lines consistently, anymore, just random things that catch my eye. I haven't bought a Star Wars toy in years. Kinda makes me sad. I used to have shelves covered in the damn things.

Ordered all 4 Black 6" wave 1 figs on amazon. They restocked this morning. I was thinking about waiting and hoping they mark them down a bit, but every time I check they are sold out so screw it, i'll pay full price for this wave, then see if they mark them down over the next few weeks and see what the stock is like. If I see significant discounting, I'll remember that for wave 2.

Speaking of wave 2...

I lamented on getting these, as my Star Wars fandom has definitely waned over the years, but I am a sucker for 6 inch figures. If I end up not caring for wave 1 so much, I'm still getting Boba and Han no matter what. Slave Leia will have its fans but I'm just rolling my eyes :p

Yeah, me too...I ordered them a few days ago and amazon said they would notify me when the shipped. I figured it would be awhile before they got some more in, but I was surprised this morning to find that they had shipped out today. I ordered darth maul, but I accidentally ordered 2 so I guess I'll be opening one and keeping the other. I don't normally collect Star Wars figures, but these figures look too nice to pass on. Cant wait for Bobba and Leia.

Ordered all 4 Black 6" wave 1 figs on amazon. They restocked this morning. I was thinking about waiting and hoping they mark them down a bit, but every time I check they are sold out so screw it, i'll pay full price for this wave, then see if they mark them down over the next few weeks and see what the stock is like. If I see significant discounting, I'll remember that for wave 2.

Speaking of wave 2...

I lamented on getting these, as my Star Wars fandom has definitely waned over the years, but I am a sucker for 6 inch figures. If I end up not caring for wave 1 so much, I'm still getting Boba and Han no matter what. Slave Leia will have its fans but I'm just rolling my eyes :p
Is anyone weirded out that we haven't gotten a 6" Vader yet?

Well, got my four wave 1 figs. Really happy with them! I don't normally care for troopers but the sand trooper is definitely the coolest. But they're all great IMO. I just hope they don't flood this line with lots of troopers instead of doing more important characters.

figs I either want or think will come soon:

C-3PO - They can't have R2 and not make him as well. He'll need to be in all vac gold metal of course!

Lando

Vader (of course)

Yoda -- yeah he'd be small (like R2) but it still needs to happen. Maybe they could include some cool stuff with him, other than walking stick and lightsaber. His Jedi Council chair?

Palpatine (RotS version)

Obi-Wan (any version, but I'd like RotS the most)

Qui-Gon

Mace Windu

No, only 1985 and older for me. Since I live in Kenner country (Cincinnati), I keep plenty busy trying to track down old factory workers. It's basically like treasure hunting. Last week I picked up a speeder bike pedal car in the Kmart promotional shipping box from 1983, a Kenner Toyfair employee award, 15 Kenner catalogues, 3 sealed multi-pack villain mailers, 3 sealed Max Rebo bands, and a Jawa Sandcrawler in the box. I doubt I will ever buy any new items again with all the incredible old stuff!

Boba Fett is the #1 selling action figure today... probably will remain that way for a while, or at least hovering in the top 10 or 20.

No that was a SDCC exclusive edition. The retail version is the same only without the Han.

The RETAIL versions are $19.99 msrp each and you can pre-order them now at your favorite store. You can probably even get them cheaper if you order a case (which has 1 of each of the 4)

It's not a big deal to me. You can find Han in Carbonite figures/statues/whatever sooo easily all over the place. There's a bunch of different versions at my local TRU as I say this, I've seen them there for months. But can you find a nice looking 6" Boba Fett everywhere? heck no! I only care about the Boba. His accessories are great too.

I ordered all 4 of wave 2 though, not just boba.

It's not the small normal size, it's big and in scale with my nick tmnt (as normal human size) so I'm really happy. :D

I think they will hit retail around 11/22. That is when they should be poping up on TRU, Amazon and other online sites. I know some sites have them up early but the wide release is late November. Amazon has Boba Fett for 44, but theat price should come down to 19 once the wide release hits. Happy hunting.

I used to collect the Mighty Max rip-off pocket SW toys as a kid and loved them. It wasn't until a few years ago when I started collecting 3 3/4 figures in general that I decided to get the iconic characters in this scale. I got quite a few figures around 20 but still missing plenty of main characters and I realized I don't have the space or care to have them all. I think I will only get my top favorite characters in the new 6" Black line and i'll be very selective, I think I'd only get Chewbacca, Boba Fett, a Storm Trooper, Darth Vader at least from the top of my head. There's other characters I'm unsure if I'd get like Darth Maul, Jango Fett, the droids, maybe a main character but I'm really unsure how deep I want to get into the line.

I do own the huge Millennium Falcon and AT-AT they released a few years ago, I love them but boy do they take up a lot of space. I plan to get rid of my 3 3/4 figures but I'm not sure about getting rid of those two ships I own.

black series 3 on pre-order on BBTS and others. Hoping amazon lists them soon...

Disappointed that there's only 2 figures in the wave I really want: Bespin luke and RotS Obi Wan. The other two are less exciting, at least to me. One is the same figure as Wave 2's Han Solo (wtf?), and the fourth is a Storm Trooper, which looks like they just altered the Sand Trooper a bit -- which of course makes sense but still, it's barely any different so not that interesting to me.

Hope wave 4 is a lot better. There are many figs on my wishlist but I'd like to get Vader and C-3PO, not because I particularly like 3PO, but since we already have R2 it would be nice to have the pair.

I love my huge Falcon and 2010 AT-AT! But I haven't exactly been able to unbox them yet because I don't have that much space right now. They should consider doing a bigger version of the Lambda-class shuttle from Jedi some day. Haven't really collected anything lately since I'm saving all my cash for toys from the upcoming movies and hopefully some Star Wars Rebels ships.

Some of 'em look great and the others, not so much.

At kmart , I found a clone wars Obi wan I didn't have in the clearance aisle. It's been there for about two years. So I called a worker over and asked how much it would be. It came out 90 cents. I went to the checkout and it kept coming up as a penny.

They gave it to me for free.

snagged a 6" clone trooper and 6" anakin (revenge of the sith with swappable heads!) on amazon. they are on pre-order

so glad I got in on the 6" bandwagon early... i have all of them so far. now that star wars Episode VII news is starting to heat up, I hope it doesn't get harder to snag future figures... such as chewie (the 6" sculpt looks great)

Mappy May The 4th weekend guys, and that means... star wars sales out the wazoo.

LEGO has a pretty good one, and so do many other stores.

I noticed on amazon many star wars figures are marked down.

You can get some of the 6" black figures for $13 and change including Obi Wan and Han Solo to name just two.

happy hunting

Good news star wars fans...

not only are we getting 6" black series vader later this year...

but we are getting this 6" figure from Medicom!!

http://www.actionfigurefury.com/6-inch-mafex-darth-vader-medicom-star-wars/

medicom is a relatively new line but they are already famous for creating perhaps the best 6" spider-man figure ever made. I expect good things from this Vader.

Lots'o money.

So a few months ago I finally got a BS Boba Fett. His arm broke off due to the freezing cold weather outside. I called up Hasbro and they sent me a free figure.


I got a wave 1 luke. Typical.

I'm just going to return it to Walmart for a marvel legends figure or something like that.

Saw Star Wars at the theatre when I was 6 and by the time ROTJ hit I was 12 and a raving fanatic like most kids of that era. Had a lot of figures, ships, and playsets but mostly of the Tatooine and Endor variety, and everything Jabba's Palace related. Was never much for the Hoth or Cloud City stuff for some reason. Bedsheets, knitted winter sweaters, and a lot of memorabilia.

Sold absolutely ALL of it during my marriage for home renos and kick myself in the arse till this day for doing it. Then around the time of the prequels, I got into prop building on the Replica Prop Forums with other lightsaber enthusiasts and started collecting the officially licensed Master Replica lightsaber prop replicas as well as other SW related collectibles in 2002.

Right now my collection consists of :
12 Master Replicas Lightsabers (Ep1 Elite Edition Obi, Ep2 Anakin, Dooku, Ep3 Anakin, Obi, Mace, Sideous, Ep4 Obi,Luke,Darth, Ep6 Luke, Luke ver2) and an MR Training Remote.

7 Gentle Giant minibusts (Vader, Boba Fett, Bossk, Leia as Boush, Greedo, Zuckuss, Death Trooper) and Gentle Giant Jabba's Throne Room, Jabba's Palace Band, and the Animated Darth, BobaFett, and Leia with R2 maquettes

Lego sets - UCS X-wing, UCS Y-wing, X-wing, Millenium Falcon, Jabba's Palace, Jabba's Sail Barge, and 3 desert skiffs. Non SW Lego includes my Modular Buildings (Green Grocer, Fire Brigade, Grand Emporium, Pet Shop, Palace Cinema) and Batman Arkham Asylum and the original release Batcave.

My current want list includes:
Master Replica lightsabers (Ep1 Darth Maul, Qui-Gonn, Ep3 Yoda)
Gentle Giant minibusts (Dengar, IG-88, 4-LOM)
Lego Mos Eisley Cantina (non yet released) and Sandcrawler

I've been avoiding the new Black Series of SW figs but the new Jabba might make me give in. For now, I'm trying to keep my collection focused to the themes I'm already into and would like to finish my saber collection before the new movie comes out because we all know it'll have it's own cool merchandising. Kudos for starting a SW collecting thread. :)

Zulithe
06-27-2014, 11:59 PM
I really love lightsaber replicas but I don't own any. I am in the market for some though. Probably within the next year or two I'll try to pick some up... I'm hoping they do another round of updates to some of the more poplular sabers.

For example, in the earlier Hasbro collectors line of lightsabers, the blade was attached.

Then, in some newer versions they now have lightsabers with detachable blades.

These are already a few years old, and I'm wondering if they are going to do another refresh of them around the time the new movies are hitting.

arkangel
06-28-2014, 02:29 AM
Considering Disney spent around 4 billion for pretty much everything Lucas, I'm assuming that they will continue to push the merchandising as much as humanly possible. Come sequel time, the market should be saturated with SW everything. The light-up sabers are indeed cool too. I bought my nephew one and he loves it. The company Master Replicas has been gone for a while now, but you can still get most of the static prop lightsabers for around 4 hundred which is just slightly more than what they were when first released. They are very well made with low QC issues and I recommend them highly. The ep4 obi wan weathered version is especially cool.

So I got all of the new Mario Kart 8 figures from McDonalds and was looking them over

and I was looking super close and I am actually very impressed with the sculpting and paint apps on these toys which are basically "free" toys given away with meals (or for a little over $1 in most areas without the meal)

Mario for example, he has a lot of shapes and change of surface area on his face and hat, and yet they mange to still apply all of the paint perfectly. No misalignment, no missing paint, nothing.

Then I thought... okay, how can the paint on this little freebie toy be so good, yet we still get crap like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqBqXpoKKw4

(Black Series 3.75 inch Yoda)

SERIOUSLY!? That $10 figure has less paint -- and CRAPPY paint at that -- than a mcdonalds toy...

Hasbro can shove their toys up their butts.

I'm still very interested in collecting the 6" black series figures but the paint problems have got to stop. There is no excuse if McDonalds can outdo them.

(btw, this applies to Playmates just as much! Hasbro isn't the main offender, Playmates is way worse)

Today at TRU i saw two speeder bikes and a jabba... AND I PASSED ON BOTH!!

The reason... I had ordered a speeder bike on amazon earlier in the day and it was already in the "shipping" stage... I came close to picking up one though so I'd have two BUT i had some other purchases so I decided to hold off... so far they haven't been that challenging to find so I can probably pick up a second speeder later and maybe even at below MSRP (that is the hope.)

As for jabba... I am REALLY hoping for a discount later this year because I think paying $40 for him when he comes with NO accessories (damn you, SDCC version...) just feels like price gouging to me.

But yeah guys... search TRU both of these figures are showing up now, they actually started showing up last week.

Jabba is a major rip off. I wanted his SDCC version but I don't have 60 bucks and it's not worth it for that price. 40/45? Sure. But not 60.


Then there's the retail version which apparently follows Watto's selling methods of "more for less". You get a half empty box with Jabba.

Sucks because I really wanted Crumb.

So I got all of the new Mario Kart 8 figures from McDonalds and was looking them over

and I was looking super close and I am actually very impressed with the sculpting and paint apps on these toys which are basically "free" toys given away with meals (or for a little over $1 in most areas without the meal)

Mario for example, he has a lot of shapes and change of surface area on his face and hat, and yet they mange to still apply all of the paint perfectly. No misalignment, no missing paint, nothing.

Then I thought... okay, how can the paint on this little freebie toy be so good, yet we still get crap like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqBqXpoKKw4

(Black Series 3.75 inch Yoda)

SERIOUSLY!? That $10 figure has less paint -- and CRAPPY paint at that -- than a mcdonalds toy...

Hasbro can shove their toys up their butts.

I'm still very interested in collecting the 6" black series figures but the paint problems have got to stop. There is no excuse if McDonalds can outdo them.

(btw, this applies to Playmates just as much! Hasbro isn't the main offender, Playmates is way worse)

Hey at least it isn't Jazwares.

Sure! I'll help!

Fifth is a Build A Droid figure. I'm not sure which one.


I'm pretty sure that Build A Droid figure is Hk-47.

been looking closely on ebay for SDCC jabba to see if I can get a good deal... yeah right, pretty much impossible to get for under $90, if you are lucky there might be a listing for $99 that's about the best you can do.

Yeah i read they were hitting stores... sadly it's sunday and tomorrow is a holiday i don't know if i'll be able to spot any till tuesday due to my schedule

I have white boba pre-ordered already so I don't care. but if I *DO* find him that means i can cancel my online order and i'll get it faster. so, I will try.

As for Vader? I have a case of Wave 5 (vader/chewie/RotJ luke/sandtrooper repaint) also on pre-order...

I got my bases covered!

But it sure is awesome that Walgreens is starting to get into 6" figures

the bad news: i've been reading that walgreens is not getting cases of these figures like they did for agent venom, instead they are getting just a handfull per store AND NOT ALL STORES ARE GETTING THE SAME FIGURES, so not every store will get prototype boba

Is it B.S.? Who knows, you hear tons of misinformation from store employees

BTW speaking of star wars i have acquired a TON of new LEGO SW sets this month. I got the sith fury-class interceptor coming, palpatine's arrest, a bunch of clone wars (focusing on sets that have cool ships or jedi/sith), even got the gungan sub cause I didn't have any Episode I sets yet.

I have a case of Wave 5 coming later this month so I only snagged boba!

Now to decide: should I keep my walgreens.com order (1x agent venom & 1x prototype armor boba fett) or cancel it... I already have both, but having an extra of each could be useful in the future... and the shipping is free :P

Yes you do! Because most stores are only getting 3 Black Series figures in their first shipments and judging by reports each store is getting about 1x Boba on average, few are getting more than that right now.

Granted it is a variant so it's not a must buy unless it interests you. I think the normal Boba Fett is amazing looking as it is.

Now I can't wait to get my Wave 5 case. I'm stoked for Vader and Chewie. Vader looks really good to me. Some collectors are being way too harsh on how it looks.

My Vader/Chewie/RotJ Luke/Black pauldron Sandtrooper case came today! After shipping it was only $85 thanks to the free shipping on entertainmentearth... overall, I am mostly glad I waited instead of trying to piece together a set by visiting 20 diff walgreens because it saved me some headaches of hunting for these figures.

And STILL I have only seen them at walgreens like a few times, never at TRU or Target. So knowing I got my case before those stores even got them on the shelves is pretty cool.

I am definitely doing cases from now on as long as I want all the figures in the wave. That's what made this wave great: all 4 were new in some way, either brand new or a paint variant. Sadly, not all 6" Black Series waves are that good. :(

Looks like both of the next two waves will have a minimum of 1 repacked figure each.

*edit*

Okay i've had some time to open them and check them out. I just want to say... I've seen pictures, read & watched some various reviews on 6" black series Vader and while he looked nice I had my expectations VERY much in check so that I don't build it up too much in my head and simply enjoy it as an "okay" vader

But I am gonna just say right now.

It is the best Vader I own... I love this figure! The cape looks GREAT, I love it. He does not look puffy or fat at all (at least not mine?)

if I had one small gripe it's that, since the helmet does remove, when I put the helmet on I can't get it to line up PERFECTLY with the bottom of the helm so that it looks like all one piece. But you can only tell up close. From about two feet away it looks excellent. But it's a minor thing really.

for $19.99 you CAN NOT GO WRONG with this Vader, he is great. I'll have more thoughts on the other figures later, I gotta do some errands

Well if you dig the 6" scale I think he's pretty great. Vader and Boba are about equal footing for me in this series. The troopers are also really well done but I've never been huge on trooper figures, I prefer the more major characters.

Chewie is not to be underestimated either... they did a great job capturing him and his figure has some weight to it... was surprised when I picked him up, he's a bit on the heavy side which is great!

As for RotJ Luke, well, what can I say? It's not bad, but they could do much better at painting the faces. I think most of the face sculpts have been good it's mostly the paint that they aren't getting right. Luke looks better than some though (a HELL of a lot better than Leia)

Buy yourself a fan-made Black Series cape (can get these on ebay, various colors) and bam... suddenly your Luke turns into a badass.

6" SW Wave 6 is on pre-order through various online retailers. Yoda, TIE Pilot, Clone Trooper and... ugh, an Obi Wan repack :( Poor choice but at least it's not Leia, Greedo or Han.

Seriously why not just repack Vader? He'll probably stay a strong seller.

Or... why are we still in the dark ages when it comes to case allotments? Why can't the Obi Wan case slot just be a random slot and they can put random 6" figures from previous waves in that slot. That could be a cool idea.

I'm still ordering a case because I don't want to risk not being able to find them easily through other means. Lots of stores have old stock that isn't moving, that can't be good for the line.

A refurbished Star Wars is on somewhere or everywhere. I have no intention of revisiting any galaxy. I shrivel inside each time it is mentioned. Twenty years ago, when the film was first shown, it had a freshness, also a sense of moral good and fun. Then I began to be uneasy at the influence it might be having. The bad penny first dropped in San Francisco when a sweet-faced boy of twelve told me proudly that he had seen Star Wars over a hundred times. His elegant mother nodded with approval. Looking into the boy’s eyes I thought I detected little star-shells of madness beginning to form and I guessed that one day they would explode.

“I would love you to do something for me,” I said.

“Anything! Anything!” the boy said rapturously.

“You won’t like what I’m going to ask you to do,” I said.

“Anything, sir, anything!”

“Well,” I said, “do you think you could promise never to see Star Wars again?”

He burst into tears. His mother drew himself up to an immense height. “What a dreadful thing to say to a child!” she barked, and dragged the poor kid away. Maybe she was right but I just hope the lad, now in his thirties, is not living in a fantasy world of secondhand, childish banalities.

Out of stock already? Last night Kmart was having a sale on BS figures (3;75), and I later found out that Starkiller was out of stock the minute I added him to my cart. I was going to buy Malgus instead, but I have the TVC original, so I didn't.

i've had all the vader wave for while now, but i have seen quite a few vaders at my local TRU the last 2 or so weeks.

Lots of Chewies too. And TONS of RotJ Luke.

Oh well, while luke may peg warm in the short term, i think he'll sell a lot better than slave leia and greedo. he'll be roughly on par with Han.

also I wonder if Hasbro is going to produce anymore of the figures from wave 1? I bet a lot of people just now jumping onto this series would like to own a Maul but they can't since it seems like he's discontinued

There are some more SW Rebels LEGO sets coming late this month (January LEGO sets usually show up in December), one has the Inquisitor and one has Sabine (though sadly without her awesome Pink Mandalorian helmet), I'll be getting those!

Waaait a minute, didn't you say you weren't getting those? You caved, didn't you? Ata boy! At least I think I remember you bowing out of Rebels stuff and waiting on the movie line. I honestly wasn't sure I wanted those either but they've evolved into must haves. Can't wait for that Imperial Troop Transport coming next year too. I think we're getting a release of The Ghost next Summer as well. Haven't found a single Rebels vehicle yet but keeping an eye out for Phantom, the AT-DP, and Inquisitor's Tie this December.

I should also check out some of those lego sets. Seems like their vehicles have a tun more action features than Hasbro's vehicles. My cousin's husband's lego Falcon has an opening top hatch for instance. At least I seem to remember it sporting one of those. Wish Hasbro had added that on their big 2008 version. Still bought it and love it regardless. I'm wondering if they're going to come up with an all new version for their 3 inch Episode VII line. Might just have to get it if that's the case. However, if it's a repaint, then I'm just sticking with the one I already have. lol I hope we're also due for a new Imperial Lambda Class Shuttle by Hasbro within the next few years. I got the 2006 version Target put out but it's still that 80's mold with a boarding ramp about as big as a popsicle stick. Palpatine could break his hip if he's not careful while walking on that thing.

I think I said something about not wanting rebels figures, but that was before I saw the show and I was still pretty angry about 5poa. :x

Yeah, I confess the show made me want the toys as well. Filoni and crew really love that Troop Transport, but they have good tastes.

I was surprised to have found this at one of my local TRU, I must have just got there when they pulled it from the truck. But, it's a quality figure.

Same for Iron Man (Age of Ultron edition) SHF

What scale is Relvotech C-3PO? I'm thinking of picking him up.

Zulithe
01-06-2015, 07:56 AM
Very close to 1/12th scale. The figure is 155mm (6.1 inches) and anthony daniels is 5'9" out of his suit so that's really close to 1/12th. Similar to 6" Black Series

I've also seen some info that indicates these are on a 7" scale not 6" (which would be accurate if C-3PO is a few inches shorter than 5'9" and some data suggests he is, at least in canon)

In any case I think they will mix really well with 6" figures

Yes, I collect Star Wars action figures. I have been collecting them since the 1990s. They are great. My favorites are the Vintage Original Trilogy type of action figures. New action figures with the vintage Kenner packaging cardbacks.

I got a call from a cousin in TN who was in a Target and she snagged a missions two pack with Sabine and a stormtrooper for me. Now all I need is Hera and Chopper to complete the crew of the Ghost. These Rebels figs sure are difficult to find. You'd think with it being a huge year for Star Wars that shelves would be filling up. Now if only I could grab a three and three quarters Inquisitor by some miracle... I like the vehicles too but ain't holding my breath where the Rebels ships are concerned.

I'm thrilled to see Rebels and Black Series stuff on TX store shelves. Been looking for the Rebs Imperial Troop Transport, Inquisitor's Tie, Phantom, and AT-DP for months. I found them all a couple of weeks ago, not to mention Hera and Inquisitor. I'm hoping we'll get an Ezra with saber at some point, and an Inquisitor with double and single saber alts. I'm mostly saving for Ep VII stuff whenever it hits store shelves. Toysrus is doing the midnight madness thing some time before the movie is released and I'd love to go to that. I'm getting pretty excited.

I'm thinking about collecting the Star Wars: Rebels figures as I've really started to love the show. The toys are virtually non-existent though. I frequently see the Kanan, Ezra, and Obi-Wan three pack. And I think I've seen the Hera and Zeb two packs once. That's about it. The racks for the Rebels toys are always empty whenever I go down the action figure isles.

True that, ABrown.
I hope Hasbro puts a ton out this Fall. It would make sense to put Rebels stuff out along with TFA on September 4th. Yeah, there are a bunch of Kanans Ezras and Heras around my neck of the woods. Finally managed to grab an Inquisitor in the 3 3/4 scale, but he doesn't include his mask, and no single bladed or unlit versions of his double edged lightsaber. He's alright but hoping for a better one down the line. Sabine too, since the 3 3/4 version's helmet isn't removable. I went ahead and picked her up anyway. All I need is Chopper to complete the Ghost crew. Maybe they'll reveal more Rebels stuff at Comic con, but I doubt we'll see too much new Rebels this year since they're going to clobber us with Force Awakens. Not that I'm complaining. Can't wait for that either.

So, time to check in on this thread again.

I really dislike my Black Series Boba Fett and Chewbacca, I mean they're fine but for the price they're really lacking. I'm thinking of selling them, I just hope they make a Figuarts or Mafex Fett, didn't get the Revo since he looked too "clean" and I think Chewbacca is better represented as a plush toy than a plastic toy. I think I've decided to get the Mafex Vader. Revoltech joints look ugly in that one and the Figuart doesn't convince me for some reason. Unsure if I want to get a stormtrooper, how is the Black series one? I feel it's too much for the Mafex...now I may just wait and get one of the newer stormtroopers from Ep.VII.

Anyone getting the Vader/Stormtrooper nendoroids? I loved them when I first saw them but now I'm unsure whether I want them.

After watching the two part season premiere of Rebels, I absolutely had to start collecting the figures. I picked up the Kanan, Ezra, and Obi-Wan three pack at Toys R Us. I found the Hera two pack and the Zeb two pack at Target. I had to go go amazon.com to get the Sabine two pack and The Inquisitor figure. Amazon does have the Agent Kallus figure, but it's a little more than I'd like to pay. I'm hoping it's a lot easier this fall to find the coming Vader and Ahsoka figures.

Where I live there was no Force Friday, but I guess it's not too bad since I probably would've bought something but everything outside the BB8 remote figure looks terrible. Or am I missing something cool that I haven't seen? Seeing pictures everything looks lackluster but I would buy a bunch of things based on hype alone.

Can someone tell me the different versions of remote control BB-8 toys that are out there?

I think there's a $150 one that is controlled by an app. I'm guessing that's the best one. But how are the other ones, I really don't want to spend $150 on it, are the other versions alright?

The other version is bigger, slower, and has a remote control instead of being app controlled. It has a lot less features.

Popped into my local toy store yesterday to get my niece a birthday present.

Checked the TMNT and Star Wars figures...instantly drawn to the new Star Wars 3.75" figures!

Only thing is, and I wonder what other UK peeps think of this...10...that's quite a bit of money for something this size.

I know inflation has gone up since I was 8 years old (1990) but I still think the true value / worth of these types of figures is between 5 and 7.

There's about 4-5 figures I want (Rey, Finn, Kylo Ren plus some TMNT), but in reality that's 50....just too much.

These toy companies need to have a long hard look in the mirror at their RRP costs!

Probably still get Rey and Kylo Ren....and maybe Finn....30.....gahhhhh

Wait for shop promotions, which regularly happen. For example, Argos sell the figures for 9 and recently had a 3-for-2, so you get 3 figures for 18 = 6 each. A much more reasonable price for these, because I agree with you, 10 is too much.
