    I guess the Three Wise Vaders brought gifts of spice, holocrons and midichlorians.

    Cool! Feel free to post more pics if you have them! We don't get enough He-Man/MotU pictures in here.



    In other news:

    Is there an FYE store near you? Do you collect Star Wars?

    Get there. NOW.

    FYE is real hit or miss with Star Wars Hasbro figures. Some get lots of the newer and newest characters. Others have only older selections. Then there are the ones - like yours apparently - that carry jack squat and might never bother with them.

    Mine carries them but for some time now the only Vintage Collection figure on their toy pegs is a VC26 Rebel Commando with the white skin. They did have some Clones, Jedi and Sandtroopers but they were all either bought or pulled. I'd love to see more Emperor's Royal Guards, Weequays and Old Republic Troopers dangling from FYE's toy wall but at their current pace of checking and restocking their inventory I won't hold my breath.

    I have some other expenses I need to take care of at the moment so I won't be able to take advantage of this sale. It'll probably expire before I can jump on it so I'm probably going to have to wait until the Falcon goes on severe markdown at my brick-and-mortar store before I pick it up.

    I have 8 versions of Ezio on the way to my house. :) Seven of them are the NECA 7" action figures and one is the 9" ACR PVC figure.

    The NECA ones are:

    ACB Ebony hooded
    ACB Ebony unhooded
    ACB Onyx hooded
    ACB Onyx unhooded
    ACR Standard Grey hooded
    A two pack consisting of ACB Florentine Scarlet hooded and ACR Caspian Teal hooded

    ACB = Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
    ACR - Assassin's Creed Revelations

    I love Assassin's Creed! :)

    Awesome. I love Assassin's Creed, too. I haven't picked up any of the NECA figures, but I did invest in one really awesome one by a certain company with the initials HT:

    If they were to make the line out of repacks, it would be awesome if they decided to put out some of the figures that were impossible to find, like Jacen and Jaina Solo. Maybe some of the Droid Factoryy figures as standard releases. Any way they do it, I'll be thrilled to have the Vintage Collection keep shelf presence after this dismal last year.

    I'd love for them to make all-new Vintage figures next year but right now the news is leaning in favor of reissuing popular 2012 figures without new product. If I had my way we'd get a TVC Jawa, Chewbacca, Hammerhead (Momaw Nadon), Power Droid in classic Kenner colors and at least several others from the Classic Trilogy.

    But you know, I'll take old 2012 cases of figures showing up late as some unofficial "Greatest Hits" assortments. They'll be the 2012 packages without anything new on them but since so many people never found Shae Vizla, Starkiller or Grand Moff Tarkin among others this can only be good news.

    After the abysmal mess that was distribution this past year the least Hasbro can do is try to get the product to the people, even if it's late. Now if we can just do something about the 2011 Ponda Baba wave with the Hoth Solider army builder....
