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 went in to my local comic store today to find a Star Wars Collector sold his collection to the store so I scored another Shadow Trooper and two more Target exclusive clones that have Commander Neyo insignia on them

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?

Quite a haul for me yesterday, thanks to WJ35! I got some non-SW stuff too, so I'll post that in the other toys topic.

At the comic store, I got:

Evolutions: The Sith and Anakin -> Vader sets
Ep3 Holographic Yoda and Emperor (the TRU exclusives)

And from a trade with WJ35:

Ep3 Holographic Aayla Secrua and Plo Koon
TSC R5-J2

The comic store owner was cool about marking down some the holo figures. Someone unloaded a SW collection there, so he was selling them off. There were a few other things I was interested in, but I need to cool off a bit since I've ordered a ton of Doctor Who stuff lately!

Also, I saw the white TIE Fighter and Saesee Tiin's Starfighter at a Target. I'm waiting for the Starfighter to show up at a Walmart so I can use my discount. ;) I just love that starfighter design. I only need the Clone Wars versions... the blue regular one and Anakin's.

Thanks again WJ35!

Steve ...the owner of Yancy St comics is a good guy I love dealing with him

As you seen Spike all those boxes that were on the side were all Star Wars figures

I wish I knew how much he bought that collection for

In a trade with Spike I got two Combat Engineers and 2 transformer keychains (Spike I found the other two this morning at my Walmart)

I also picked up another Clone Evolution set (gold version)

and in a trade I recieved 5 more purple clones and an R2-B1 in another trade
