Good luck selling it, though!

What figures do you have?

VADER2013 06-30-2013 01:00 PM

I have a bunch of vintage Star Wars mostly figures, not all though. The potf I am still missing several. Have some vehicles, wax packs, cardbacks. I have been trying to complete the first 21 on card, but most are slit open bubbles which suits me fine.
I started collecting the newer, post 95 figures but quit, it was just too much.

I know, there's over 400+ post-Kenner figures

Zulithe 06-30-2013 06:01 PM

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

Is the Black Series Boba Fett/Han Solo in carbonite a 3 or 6 inch figure? ANyone gonna try to get that?

Zulithe 07-01-2013 09:23 PM

The Boba Fett is 6" and it looks incredible. I am not sure if the carbonite comes with every one... it might be SDCC exclusive. Here are pics

http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front...ate_151973.asp

*edit* yeah the carbonite version is definitely a con exclusive. I guess I'll just get the regular version :( It will still be awesome either way. I'm guessing he will be in wave 2... I hope

It's 6 inch, I think. It's a SDCC exclusive though :ohwell:

Brodie 07-01-2013 10:53 PM

I'm wondering if Boba Fett by himself will be in an upcoming series, though.

I hope so, Especialy in the 6 inch series.

snake 07-19-2013 12:12 AM

Next week I'm ordering some Black Series Stuff!!!

Walkabout 07-28-2013 10:53 PM

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

Pride of my collection is Jabbas palace, when I set that up again one day Ill take and post pics.

MsMarvelDuckie 08-04-2013 09:42 PM

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!

Zulithe 08-04-2013 09:49 PM

So, who has some of the new black series figs? Anyone got the SDCC Boba Fett?

What are your impressions of the 6" line so far?

Leo656 08-08-2013 01:15 AM

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.

Zulithe 08-14-2013 07:13 AM

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...

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/im...HSA4301Blg.jpg

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.

I am, we usually get him in the first 3 waves of a SW line.

Zulithe 08-15-2013 03:53 PM

Vader better be in wave 3...

with removable helmet or a head-swap that has the "luke in vader helmet" from ESB :p

Okay Disney... you got me... keep pumping out 6" figs and i'll stick around a while.

There are so many characters I would buy... and rebuy (I really want Jedi Knight Luke from RotJ)

Figures I hope we see
1- Luke ANH clothes
2- Liea ANH
3- Darth Vader
4- Mace Windu
5- no Expanded universe stuff until these covered all 6 movies

Zulithe 08-16-2013 10:57 PM

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

Nice! And about the trooper clogging thing, in the wave 2 for the 3" black series it has 5 different clones :teek:

snake 08-17-2013 03:19 AM

Sorry about the double post, but imagine what a Black Series Rancor would be like. (Besides expensive as @$%#.)

raph27 08-17-2013 08:43 AM

I'm not a big SW fan but I might have to get Leia.:P

Lemcool 08-19-2013 05:37 PM

I'm a huge Star Wars fan, with the kind of collection where you'd think there is something mentally wrong with me. Next month, I'm going to start offloading some original ('88-'92) carded turtles and will be in the market for trading for vintage Star Wars stuff. Looking forward to revisiting this thread again when I take that step. :tgrin:

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!
