Those are pretty cool, Praetor! Nice stash, man! I've never collected anything like those but I've always thought they were really colorful and neat-looking.

Hope for some store pegs? A Yakface.com photo of a Toys 'R' Us that has actually gotten brand new product in(as opposed to most American TRU outlets which have been sitting on the same Episode I product since January with little or no change).

If you're into the hobby I guess it's time to grit your teeth and check TRU again. Meh...you never know.

Meanwhile, in the UK, we haven't even seen the Deleted Scenes wave yet.

Here's my big CLONE WARS score from Walmart last night. These are four of the seven new CW figures in Waves 2 and 3. These are the first new CLONE WARS characters I've seen at local retail since the mad merchandising rush of January 30th. Up until now the most exciting CW figure I've seen on pegs has been the random Savage Opress(shirtless).

What's the difference, if any, between the two Kenobi figures? Or is one just an extra?

Bingo! OdoWan nailed it. There were only two left of the brand new Obi-Wan and I went ahead and got them both.

Seems like I've always got something I haven't shared yet. I think I have too much stuff. Here's my Indiana Jones "shrine"

Nice...love those. If only other companies could replicate THAT good of a Harrison Ford likeness on their merchandise. Even the 12" stuff always falls a little short. They've reached the ability to nail most of his facial features(including his chin scar)but something else always eludes them. You can tell it's Harrison Ford, but it's Harrison from 40 years ago...or it's Harrison after he's slept face-down for an entire night.

Here are two shots of Disneyland's and Disneyworld's brand-new "Droid Factory" feature which allows paying customers($11.95 for one droid, $18.95 for two) to both build as well as personally package their very own customized astromech droids using a wide variety of differently colored parts as well as bonus pieces like Mickey and Goofy ears, Jack Sparrow pirate hats or Indiana Jones fedoras.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I don't think any of you guys have seen the carded photos of two of the upcoming Grand Moff Tarkin wave figures(2012 Wave 5?) that are supposed to start surfacing by sometime in June. These are the first-ever carded figures of Starkiller(Galen Marek) from the two FORCE UNLEASHED video games and Bounty Hunter Shae Vizla from the OLD REPUBLIC game. As always and with current distribution issues being what they are your mileage will, of course, vary...but these should officially be in circulation by the end of next month.




And JUST BREAKING! Hot off the presses at Sandtroopers.com is the first boxed photo of the upcoming K-Mart exclusive AT-ST Scout Walker from the Vintage Collection line of ships and vehicles. Check out the sweet-ass retro box...it's like it's 1983 or 1984 all over again.

That's *a lot* of detail. I was thinking of getting a couple of them (Hawkeye and if there is one, Iron Man) but I could only find low res earlier images but that is amazing.
