Just hit TOYS R US and picked up C-3PO and Dack Ralter!

They had quite a few figures that I wanted to buy, however only had so much money to spend... So I got two figs for now... WILL HAVE TO GO BACK AGAIN SOON!

beware when ordering from toynktoys.com; i am sad to say that out of the 11 figs purchased i did receive 4 with some dents on the top and sides of the figure blisters, not the end of the world, but not too thrilling from a collectors point of view... as i am new to collecting, how hard would you stress this... is it worth returning for ones in better condition? should i open these ones for the mail away offer?

It all depends how serious you are with card condition, it would also depend on their policy for returns.

the cards are nearly perfect, it is just some of the plastic encasing the figure has some creases and dents, not enough to affect seeing the figure, and you kind of have to look for it to notice...

I can solve that for you. I'll come over to your house, and open up all of your figures, throwing the cards and bubbles into the trash. That's how I treat all of my cards!!

Problem solved!

haha i cringe at just imagining the sight... i don't think its that big of a deal, just not to thrilled but i guess out of 35 figs now only 4 are in this unfortunate condition... lesson learned, go hand pluck them from my local store myself... probably will enjoy collecting more as well if i do so, instead of ordering full waves at a time... the only excitement is waiting for them to get there and hoping that they are in pristine condition when they do...

I can relate. I used to be a MOC collector, but I was always disappointed by the fact that I could not take the figures out and play with them. So, back in 2003 or 2004 (I can't remember which), I spent three summer nights opening them all up. I have never kept a figure carded since.

Anyway, I was able to get AT-AT Commander and Bespin Luke Skywalker this morning at Target.
