    Re: The Recent Toy Acquistion(s) thread

    Little Barda is figuring out a way to free my latest acquisitions, Big Barda and Big Barda variant, from out of their bubbles.

    That may have been a mistake, lol. LEGO is ridiculously addictive, and I got hooked. They tell you how to assemble it piece by piece, yet it's still ridiculously satisfying to put sets together.
    BC, that's quite an SW Lego collection that you're amassing and you're right, it's ridiculously satisfying to put sets together. However, due to space and cost considerations, I've had to give up on SW Lego sets Also, my sets always seem to tumble onto the floor and I hated having to rebuild them over and over again - I guess it's only satisfying for me for the initial build.

    Re: The Recent Toy Acquistion(s) thread

    I remember I was a senior in college when the Lego Star Wars first appeared. I bought every single one of them. I put them together and already I had ran out of space. So I sold the sets to a friend at a discount. They really are cool but since I have way too many toys as it is, I really can't do Legos. They are awesome though and I love putting them together.

    Funny, I find the same thing a lot of a time. I figured with Lego, that I could disassemble things and rotate displays in and out, as space requires, but assembling them a second time just isn't as fun.

    I certainly can't imagine taking the time to disassemble and re-assemble the Death Star, considering the time investment involved though.

    Latest from Ebay, I got the Alien Encounter Skippy plush for $15. Not the cleanest condition but it ain't bad.

    Yea! Skippy has arrived. I bet someone here knows a good way to clean him.

    Re: The Recent Toy Acquistion(s) thread

    So excited about V.I.N.C.E.N.T, but after a few Italian acquisitions, I broke down and switched horses midstream. I'm now collecting these instead of the US carded figures. That said, I have 4 US carded figs on eBay at the moment at must-sell prices. Check them out! eBay Seller: runawaybrain88: DVDs Movies, Toys Hobbies items on eBay.com

    Re: The Recent Toy Acquistion(s) thread

    Ok I have not had the time to update my own acqusitions lately, but i have been busy. Here are a few I have got.

    I recently got a new Star Wars X-Wing pilot from Coheteboy and then I got two more in a Comic 2pack from WalMart today. I decided to film them together.

    X-Wing pilots: Quarren Nrin Vakil, Mon Calamari Ibtian, and Twi'Lek Cesi Eirriss. Without helmets, then with them on. The helmets fit very snug. They all look great.

    Haha they had to make custom helmets for those guys. It almost makes no sense for them to exist. What timeline do they fall in for Star Wars anyway? And why is Mon Calamari blue???

    I am guessing that like Humans and Twi'leks, there is more than 1 skin color for Mon Calamaris. They all fall into Original Trilogy time and all 3 were members of Rogue Squadron. Here are the Wookiepedia entries for all 3.

    Cesi Eirriss

    Nrin Vakil


    Ibtisam

    I hate Expanded Universe. So much.

    Re: The Recent Toy Acquistion(s) thread

    (to bring balance to the Force) I love Star Wars Expanded Universe figures!

    Even when I've never read the comics that they come from, I tend to want the figures. Even when I've read them and don't like them (Legacy), I still want 'em! I have that Twilek pilot (I was disappointed to hear them pronounce it as "Twee - lek" on Clone Wars as I've been saying "Twigh-lek" all these years) and would love to have the Mon Cal and Quarren pilot.

    Re: The Recent Toy Acquistion(s) thread

    Some of the expanded Star Wars universe is quite good, but I don't really follow it any more.

    I did buy the Admiral Thrawn figure recently, as he is an awesome character.

    Because that's the Mon Calamari, playing the Mon Calamari disguised as another Mon Calamari... from the hit movie Sonic Thunder. (I hope I don't give Stiller [or Mel Brooks] any ideas).

    You know, I think it was the expanded universe that made me lose my interest in Star Wars - just because there was so much of it that I was not familiar with. If I ever get back into collecting Star Wars, my focus will just be on figures from the live-action movies and the vehicles from those movies.

    Not really a toy addition, but I added a Kingdom of the Crystal Skull popcorn bucket to my Indiana Jones collection today. Only cost 99 cents!
