Well, really only a few months. And if Brian's Toys had had any sort of coupon code (in addition to free shipping) a mere week or so ago, I would have bought the entire wave for the $130 they were asking at the time. They now want $160 for it. I already had the four repacked Walmart figures, so I didn't really want them. However, for $3.25 each, I went ahead and scored a second Naboo Pilot and Gungan Warrior.

Yes, but sometimes the early bird gets the worm. I've missed out on just as many bargains as I've found. Though I am getting better.

Those pictures make me want the BMF even more. I just can't pull the trigger because of the price tag. Crying or Very sad

Amazon has sales on them periodically. I got mine for $127 shipped last year! Shipping is 30-40 if I am not mistaken so I was very pleased. The thing is a play set it is so awesome!

Still too rich for me. I'd only pick it up if I could get it shipped to me for $75 or less. Preferably $50 or less. But I doubt that that would ever happen.

After avoiding this figure for over a year, I decided to get a TVC Battle Droid today at Target, for $9.99. I decided to get it since I doubt I'll be spending much of anything on Star Wars this year, since Hasbro seems to be pulling back distribution in order to prepare for the release of the last two prequels in 3D.

I hate it when lack of new/good stuff leads to the purchase of stuff you would never have purchased otherwise. Seems to be happening all to often these days.

I have purchased a lot of Nickelodeon(CatDog, Hey Arnold, Rugrats) and E.T. figures and others things of the sort so I can totally relate...I do not know if I am late or early in finding this but I was really happy to see something new on the shelves, not to mention something on my want list!



So I have made the executive decision to not collect as many MOC/ StarCased figures from the TVC due to space. The only ones that will remain StarCased or, MOC at all for that matter, are the ones that feel special/ super nostalgic to me. Here are a some I have taken out of storage for opening since I do not already have loose/ opened:

The old lady, Jocasta Nu, finally arrived on my doorstep last night. I purchased two, and our boy, Ridge, has claimed the second. Despite all the drama surrounding Brian's Toys, I sure am glad they picked this one up, since it really is a nice figure. Very nice.

I found the TVC Bespin Han Solo today at TRU. The store had a ton of the TVC re-release figures from 2012, such as Bom Vimdin, Captain Fordo, Aayla Secura, Logray, Doctor Evazan, Barriss Offee, Nom Anor and the Rebel Fleet Trooper. All of them had the life-sized Darth Maul giveaway sticker on the front of the cards. I imagine we are going to be seeing figures from this wave for quite a while this year.

Very Happy I miss you guys! But I promise I am not elsewhere, Yodanews is my home for Star Wars or even action figures for that matter... I have been spending a lot of time on my car... If you are into cars at all, here is my build thread on the BMW forums in which I am a member of. Enjoy! Also follow me on instagram @rdauito

On another, more on topic note: I plan on playing with some toys tonight, so I sure will try and take some photos if I have anything creative to share!

I'm not one for freaking out, but if this is true I am going to go crazy wild. Did they SERIOUSLY release the endor at-at ONLY in Canada? can anyone confirm if this auction is true or misinformed?
