I went to Target today, and was able to get MH Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker, for $8.99 each. Jar Jar Binks was there, too, but I'm gonna wait for the TVC version.

I know a guy in Ireland who might know the answer to this one. Let me ask him for you.

[Edit]: Okay, I just sent him a PM. I'll let you know what he says.

Hey many thanks, but guess what? all the PM VC wave 1 (i think) came into the store that I go to and they saved a whole box of this wave for me unpunched and mint, I have taken them out of the box to look at them and now they go into the loft with all the others. I will check out those sites though many thanks again.

When I attempted to open/ assemble Sunday night I was exhausted. I decided to put the contents pack into the box since I was fading out and to apply the decals at that time would not have been smart lol. But, upon first look it looks soooo cool, and will be an awesome center piece or more so "playset" for recreating some of our favorite battle scenes. I already have in mind using it to portray the ARC troopers first mission in Tarnovsky's animated Clone Wars lol, when a blue ARC trooper descends from above and breaches the tank to leave a grenade behind... Fast Forward to 3:05 for this scene with the ATT Smile

I am really excited to play the scene out haha, my Captain Fordo comes today as well as my clone wars-deco gunship! Hopefully I can get some dedicated toy time in later!
Tonight I will try and assemble and have a more detailed report/photos for you guys!

Okay! So a step closer to opening these vehicles/ships I am lol. I did not get to opening much last night. But as of this morning they are on the table and ready for opening! I am not leaving anyone hanging Wink! I did open the Captain Fordo, card-back pictured above, and his overall appearance is so bad ass. Hasbro did such an awesome job capturing the characters appearance from the TV show and I am more than happy with him!

I snapped a few quick shots of my Eopie and Qui Gon display on the way out to work this morning... nothing crazy but a cool way to display these two non the less! Just cork board once again.. lol

I absolutely love this thing! It really is fun to play with, and an epic center piece for any diorama. I recommend it very much so!




Fully loaded lol, these are made to fit 7 droids exactly, coincidentally that is what I have at the moment! Also take note of the paint app around the cannons, the carbon scoring around the barrels is a really nice touch!


This cockpit is also an awesome touch to take note of, and really adds to the "intimidation factor" of the vehicle... knowing there are droids inside commanding the tank really make it feel complete! With out this feature I probably would have passed on this vehicle to be completely honest.





Hope this helps you in your decision! Also no missiles were fitted into the cannons in any photos above, I am not a big fan of that look and placed them in a Ziploc back in box.

I picked up a DTF Darth Maul just to see if the paint apps on this new one are better than the paint apps on the original that I have in my collection.
