The Star Wars News and Toy Haul Thread

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

I picked up two more of those Walmart value packs.

Endor soldier (black)
Endor soldier (white)
Hologram Darth Maul
AT-AT Driver

I never did get Maul when I saw him one or two times in the store, so this worked out. The rest are duplicates, but I wanted to do some swapping with the Endor soldiers. Plus, I have an extra of the Saga Endor solider that the 2006 figure is based on... I'm going to try a head swap with one of the new figures. It seems the 2006 version has the same neck base on the torso as the old figure (which only had a swivel, not a ball & socket). I just wish I had more of the bigger rifles with the strap. They look much better in the soldier's hands than that semi-weeny blaster gun. If I can make fabric tunics for them, too, that would make them even better... :D

What's up with the Sith Infiltrator? It's tiny!

And who are the new figures? Two crazy looking stormtroopers, an all black Crimson Guard with a lightsaber, and other curious figures.

Furthermore, the Gunship TF is disappointing, but the Saesee Tinn TF looks good and the Commander Cody TF looks great.

Curious to see that AT-AT TF in Robot Mode.

Well, holy ****. Hasbro declared war on my wallet, and on three fronts they won: Star Wars, GI Joe 25th Anniversary, and Spider-Man / Marvel. Though I won't get every Spider-Man or Marvel figure that they put out, I'll probably end up with all of the SW and GI Joes.

As for the Sith Infiltrator... they had to produce it for the $20 vehicle pricepoint. I would have also preferred it to be larger (and maybe $30), but I suppose we get what we can, during a non-movie year. At least it's in proper proportions, unlike some of the older (70s / 80s) scaled-down vehicles (Falcon, X-Wing, etc).

No :( I haven't been down in that area for a while. I hate going to the mall and the stores around there alone... but I'll get out there eventually. I also want to see if that store or the one on 19 near the mall have any Doctor Who stuff...

Raaargh. Our Walmart has a bunch of new Battlepacks (Dagobah and Geonosis), Comic 2-packs, Vehicles, Unleashed troop builders, and a ton and a half of SWTFs, but not a single individual 3.75" action figure. They finally sold the last three that they had since Christmas, and they still haven't restocked the figures!

There's one 20min east of us (in Cuba) and 30min west of us (St. Roberts). Can't quite justify the drive though, since I have no reason to go except to look for Star Wars Figures.

It's just the name of a town on I-44 here in Missouri.

We also have towns named California, Mexico, Washington, etc.

Really annoying.

Thanks bro....I see that you liked Luke.

To answer your question over there, yeah its an obi-wan body and the sarlacc pit head from a Luke.

I went out yesterday to a target in Delaware and a store in Lancaster pa.

Well I hit the jackpot.

I got:
2 Appo
2 Holo Obi-wan
2 Elite clone troopers
2 Yarrel Poof
2 Aura Sing
2 Labria
1 Mace Windu droid
1 Kitik keed kak
1 Nabrun Leids & Kabe
1 Padme

Now I only need another Mace Windu Droid and 2 Vader Droids.

I was annoyed that the Elite Trooper didn't come with the long gun, and the lightsaber for Poof is weird looking. But I'll make a quick change of both since I have extras for both.

I also got an AOTC Durge with speeder bike in the mail the other day.

Finally found the 5th Fleet Security Trooper and the Clone Wars Kit Fisto. Also found the Felucia Battle Pack, but couldn't afford to get it as I was also getting the Autobot City 2-pack.

So next time I go hunting it will be for the Felucia Battle pack, the Kashyyk Sniper/Elite Trooper, and Commander Appo.

Ohh, I hope so! I'll grab another Felucia set for sure. Maybe another Illum set so I can make a better Padme figure using her parts... or maybe not. I have tons of extra SW figures that I've never gotten around to customize. :?

Ha ha, I saw a bunch of Clone Engineers today.

They made me chuckle. I looked at the example picture on the box, which is of a clone, side view, who is pretty dirty. The marking pattern on the toy is totally fabricated if they are trying to assert that it represents the image on the package.

Whoooo.

Anyway, when do we get Galactic Marines? and how many of them were involved with shooting down Mundi in E3?
