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 have a Queen Padme Amidala figure in mint condition, still in the box. It is the one where she is a Handmaiden. Does anybody have an idea of how much its worth? I want to be able to sell it or at least trade it, because all its doing is sitting in my closet and I really want a different figure.

BTW Darth Screamer, your sig picture totally rocks! :grin: Did somebody make it for you, or did you do it yourself?

I wish I could help

My current toy mags have no prices for the Phantom Menace figures

I know they first sold at $19.99 but if you put up on ebay you could start there and have others bid higher

Maybe others will know

Sorry I couldn't be of any help

Is it the small action figure, or a doll sized... er, doll? I'm not sure how much either is worth. If you have the action figure, and it's the red & yellowy outfit that I'm thinking of, I might be interested. I never did pick up that figure, along with Pablo Jill or whoever it was that came out in that wave.

Oh man... have I made a killing today. It seems a lot of stuff is getting cleared out of the toy department, at least in my store. I was checking through the clearance aisle and found the 30th tin sets there. The Cantina Band has been there for weeks at $20, but no one is buying them. They were marked to $10! So I grabbed one, being that I want my Cantina Band to have all six members. I can use the others for something else I'm sure.

The other tin sets... all from the OT... were marked as $10 each. BUT the ANH and ESB sets rang up as $1.00 each!!! I'm thinking about going back and grabbing the other remaining ANH sets...!

Darnit, I'm going to want all of those, and they're going to be expensive, what with paying for a bunch of jedi I already have. :?

Finally picked up Commander Appo at Target last night to be Commander Bow's seargent. Unfortunately he cost over $7, so I regret it a little.

Wow, that looks real. :D Is there any other Star Wars videos that look this real?

The Padme figure I have is made by Applause. The only thing that moves on it is the head. I had tried to move the arms, but it apprears that they don't move. Her pose is of that she has her gun at the ready, and it looks like she is in attack mode. I think she stands 7-8 inches high. I have only opened the box once, and that was to see if the arms and head move.

The way I figure it, I don't have enough 501st Clones to promote him any higher. :lol:

Commander Bo and Anakin's Airborne Trooper would only bring it to seven, less than a full squad. I figure its a stretch to call Bow a First Lt.

After I have the TAC and Betrayal sets, I need to sit down and figure out the chain of command/organization in my little army - because right now I have a full squad of plain white Clone Troopers, an almost full squad of green camouflaged Clone Troopers, and 5 half-squads of others.

It looks a little silly.

The way I do my clones is I have a Commander and 8 grunts

With Commander Bow and the blue airborne trooper this will make it 10

I'm doing the same with the Cody's troop with the orange airbone trooper I just picked up and the AT-RT repaint that set will have 10 figures also

I have two of Neyroo's grunts and these two will be perfect

I'm hoping that one day in the future these two figures will be on cards individually.

If you don't mind me asking, how do their colors (burgundy?) compare to those of Commander Bacarra and the Marines?
