    Just curious - does anybody here have a Toys 'R' Us Express store in your area? If you do and you collect Star Wars toys you might want to check your store because some of the Amazon-exclusive Vintage Collection Slave I's have been spotted there for as little as $35 before sales tax, which is less than half the original Amazon price.

    Leia seems to have shrunk somewhat.

    Is that the 2007 Endor Leia from the Vintage-themed clamshell figures, minus her Rebel helmet and poncho? Looks like it's that particular release.

    Alright! Completed the first wave of Avengers Marvel Legends. Here's Captain Marvel. She comes with interchangeable heads. I think my preference is for the unmasked look. I never really cared for the mohawk.

    Yesterday afternoon I found the brand new Jedi Temple Guard and AT-AT Driver figures (3.75” Rebels/Saga Legends) at my local Target for $5.99 each.

    got SH Figuarts Red Buster in the mail today. Go Busters may not have been the best series but i liked most of the characters.

    Pre-orders for Wave 9 of Black Series 6" figures (Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise, IG-88, two Clone Commander Codys) just went up online over at Dorkside Toys, but that wave assortment is still a little ways off. I have yet to find any of the new Wave 7 figures anywhere (Bossk, Han in Stormtrooper Disguise) and some stores around here haven't bothered to stock (or restock) the current Wave 6 figures which include Yoda and the TIE Pilot.

    That's a pretty cool die-cast vehicle. The new line of Disney Store ships and vehicles seems to be a smash hit and the quality looks to be about as good as you can ask for in that price range.

    Awesome! I wish all kids loved Star Wars toys and collectibles as much as that.

    The AT-AT is actually very cool. Its legs are fully movable, same with the neck. You could do stop motion with it, in fact I think I will. See what I can do in the next few days.

    If you get any decent results from those experiments make a video and post it in the thread!

    I'd love to see the looks on the kids' faces when their parents buy that for them.
