    Awesome news...my friend called from his shop right after opening half an hour ago and told me that he got hold of a brand new Vintage Collection (VC105) Emperor's Royal Guard from one of the online assortments! :) :cool: If I want it it'll be $16, which is a little bit more than he normally charges me for brand new Vintage Collection figures but this is from an online case assortment and these last 12 figures are gonna be a lot harder to come by because nobody's going to be carrying them at retail.

    I think I'll bite. I don't mind having another Royal Guard.

    I wish the Quantum Mechanix Firefly Big/Little Damn Heroes figures were't so expensive or sold out. Does anyone know when the Inara LDH figure will be released? I know it's on pre-order now but when will it actually come out?

    Now that's the textbook definition of a stiff and tight ass.

    Had a lot of fun with Hawkeye and Black Widow today while getting Christmas stuff ready. Too much fun. Here's the first of several photos:

    I finally have a way to get my hands on a Clone Wars Ahsoka (Scuba Gear) and Clone Commander Fox from the tail end of this year's CW figure line. I'm so relieved...I've spent the last couple of months or longer trying to track both down thanks to the abysmal distribution of most new Star Wars action figures this past year and now it looks like it's finally gonna pay off.

    After this I'll be completely caught up on all the 2012 basic carded action figures that I wanted.

    For those not hip to the Clone Wars mythology, this is Commander Fox:

    I have several SW figures on the way as I type and post this, including my Scuba Ahsoka, Wolffe, Fox and an extra Training Super Battle Droid from the same assortments(a simple repaint of a 2008 figure but a really, really good one and very eye-catching). I'm also expecting two more army builders from the online exclusive Vintage Collection wave: another Gungan Warrior and an extra Naboo Pilot.

    I don't know which is neater and cooler...your delicious-looking gingerbread house or all the funny Hawkeye photos you take. :p

    Well, I didn't actually bake the house, it was a kit. I cheated. :p

    And I thought Hawkeye and the house was funny, because Jeremy Renner's next movie is Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

    I didn't know that...cool. I was unaware he was making that movie and, thus, the connection in your photos. Thanks!

    In toy news I managed to find a $10 Legacy Collection (2009) Gungan Warrior with the gold-colored battle horn at my friend's shop this morning. Some guy came in yesterday and traded some of his figures for newer stuff and the Gungan was one of his trades.

    Too bad there's not a Gemma Aterton action figure anywhere.

    I just picked this Jean-Luc Picard action figure. A little nervous because I could not find anything on it and hope I did not over pay. Gave $100 for it.

    It is a certified signature wizard Jean-Luc Picard Tapestry II action figure. It is in a clear package. Picard is in a green uniform.

    I collect a wide range of things from Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel to what ever catches my eye.

    Sorry I tried to attach a photo but it did not post.

    You're still a cadet. It'll take a little while before you're allowed to post images. If you post the image I can quote it for you to make it show up.

    Welcome, by the way. It's always great to get another member on the boards, especially one that can be active in this thread.

    There's a rumour of an ESB Slave 1 which will presumably use the same mold as the Clone Wars battle pack version. That one is fairly massive (much larger than the 2002 one) and makes this new one look like a micro machine.

    Oh, yeah...the Clone Wars Slave 1 was the one that came in the huge $100 Toys "R" Us gift set with the Anakin, astromech droid, young Boba Fett and Bossk figures wasn't it? That's the only animated Bossk that's ever been made in plastic as far as I know. That ship was pretty hefty and good looking if I remember correctly...I could see them tweaking and repainting it for a movie-style release.

    In other news I had some figures arrive today:

    1 x CW15 Scuba Ahsoka
    1 x CW16 Training Super Battle Droid
    1 x CW17 Clone Commander Wolffe
    1 x CW18 Clone Commander Fox
    1 x Vintage Collection Naboo Pilot
    1 x Vintage Collection Gungan Warrior
    1 x Legacy Collection (2009) Nien Nunb (in red B-Wing flight gear)

    Yep! There's a few custom repaints knocking around which look great. I have it and to be honest, anything larger would just be silly.
