This isnt related to the Hasbro stuff, but I just bought the Code 3 Darth Vader TIE Fighter from Entertainment Earth. They are selling them for $99 right now. If you have ever seen any of the Code 3 stuff in person, you know how good of a deal that is. I just couldn't pass it up.

I just got the Unleashed Fett and Greivous Target exlusives.  My sister in law picked them up for me when she was in Buffalo last weekend.  Wasn't too particular on getting the Greivous, but it looks good regardless.  The fett on the other hand is spectacular.  I have the carded one, but the tube style packaging is amazing just for the fact that it's fully assembled and actually has two spaces in the card on the lid that a light could be shone through to light the whole thing up.  Awesome!!!

Also just got R2 (clean) and the scout trooper from the OTC collection in a trade with Hunter CJ and got 3 of the 5 endor wave figs at Zellers for $6 each as they didn't scan and couldn't find the right code for them!! 

Been an awesome week for me.

It's not really SW related, but i scored a sweet 1/6th scale Ducati 998 @ walmart on friday night. Now i have something to race against my Speeder bike  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

My most recent SW score was a 12 inch scale POTF R5-D4 that i got from Darryl @ Mulvey for $15(you rock man!:) :artoo:)

And the BEST score of all is always the one you don't have to pay for...i managed to fix my wonky iPod myself, thereby saving myself around $400 or so for a new one. :rockon: :character0005:

Wow, that really is awsome, redeyekho. I'd love to get one of those. Is it a custom built thing? Or are they readily available? I won't be getting one soon either way, no room, and probably not enough $$ at the moment!

Very cool!!  :)` :)`

Oh and what is the little R2 next to the biggy? Is it the interactive one or the phone perhaps? Looks about the right soze to be the phone. I have one of those, it's pretty cool.

It is a fan made one. Be prepared to pay major dollars if you decide. I know that Sideshow has there 1 to 1 size scale as well.. but am not sure what they charge... plus I don't think they are shipping it yet. They also have a C-3PO as well.... I wouldn't mind having a C-3PO standing beside R2  :)`

Oh yes... that is the interactive R2 beside the fullsize one.

Awesome R2. I was thinking the same thing. How was it crossing the boarder? Any trouble?

I claimed it for a lesser amount. Plus I was in the US for 5 days. I did still have to pay a bit but it would've been alot more. If I was to claim what I paid for it I would have to pay $1500 in duty taxes  :shakehead: I crossed the border with no problems. I thought for sure they would've looked in the crate. It was actually pretty smooth. The guy gave me a receipt.. I went inside and paid for it and off I went. There was a couple of vehichles that was being searched. I claimed it as a "reasonable amount". I'm sure if I said $500 I would've been pulled to the side and searched.

Picked up the GG Leia/Artoo animated maquette. I've got nowhere to display it right now but man it's sweet.
I truly believe I completely undervalued the Clone Wars cartoon until I bought the DVDs after Christmas... as a whole, uninterrupted series it has better character developement than the 3 prequel movies combined. I'm really glad Gentle Giant has given the OT characters this highly stylized animated look.

It was also my first time buying directly from Sideshow (got all the other 1:4 premiums off e-bay) and I am very pleased with their customer service! I will not hesitate to buy from them again! :happy0025:

Hey Peconi, it was a few bucks for the bucket. It took some sweat to find this but paid off at the end. I got it from Rudolpht, he's a well known prop collector and seller in the community. If your interested I can give you a few contacts where you can maybe get a AOTC helmet. Just PM me.

Ambasah, never knew Attakus made those statues, Very nice. Those were probably a pretty $$$.

So I received the SS boba today. It's very nice and all, but you would think something this expensive would be perfect. The viewfinder is very flimsy and did not stay up properly without a little tweaking. All that hoopla about what it was made of had no impact on me. It is beautiful and I could care less how much it weighs. The exclusive coaster is another matter - utter waste. It really has me rethinking my completist mentality. That coaster cost me about $200 extra. At least the maul one will be worth getting.

It was a long time coming, but I finally obtained my first Attakus piece.  Got Vader 1 about a month ago and just finished cutomizing my 2nd detolf to expand.  He is to big to fit on a shelf, so I decided to remove a shelf and then make a little felt covered box for him to stand on in order to have him look centered.

Here are some pics:

Post by: Slave1 on May 02, 2007, 01:24:17 PM
Thanks guys!

The Detolfs framing the ESB poster has been my plan for quite some time now, I just needed enough to fill them.  I still dont know what to put in that last space at the bottom of the second detolf for now.  My long term plan is to move Maul there and get the Code 3 X-wing signature to complete the signature series in the large cabinet on the left; but with C4 coming up I have to watch the spending.  The signature X-wing is quite expensive so it might not happen for a long time unless I see a fantastic deal I can't turn down.  It was hard enough dishing out the dough for that Vader this close to C4.

Title: Re: New Aquisitions....
Post by: Hellboy on May 09, 2007, 02:16:55 AM
I've always liked the colour orange and the 212th Attack Battallion is more prominent in ROTS than the other clones... if they announce they're going to make a Cody helmet I'm screwed... my wife would kill me if I bought another. :)
Now I just need to build the rest of the armour.

This pack came from the second wave of accessory packs...which I think were a Target Stores exclusive in the US.  The first wave did so poorly in stores that I think the second set was done in very low numbers.  They are quite rare and pull in pretty good $$$ on e-bay...when you can find them.  The others in the set were:

Rappel Line Attack
Pod Racer Fuel Station
Hyperdrive Repair

So today my street had it's yearly garage sale and I dug out some old star Trek stuff that I had.  I took it to a neighbour that liked star Trek to see if he wanted it.  He said sure, just as I spotted the Royal Naboo Starship playset on a table.  The big one, about 21/2 feet long.  He said $6. It was missing a couple of parts, but looks sweet as hell none the less.   He also had the R2 figure case that came out during Ep 1 for $4 (too much in my opinion).  I offered the star trek toys as trade and we swapped stuff.

Also today my Brother in law dropped of my carded Ep1 R2 B1 that I got on ebay for $20.  and I just ordered the concept luke on hasbro.com

We also made $90 at the garage sale!!!  Man, that's a good day. :rockon:

Wow ambasah, you seem to be collecting all the lines out there from hasbro to GG , SS MR and attakus!  There's no stopping you!

I bet your SW room will be like heaven to many LOL

I've just recently started to collect statues and such from GG, SS and medicom.  Sure gets pretty expensive!

Two on the same account?  I thought they limited it to one per membership.  I know that some people ordered multipple but their orders got cancelled and the cancelled ones went back on sale.

Here's some pics.  Upon opening mine i found a crack at the front robe belt!!! Heartbreaker..... :sad0064: i've emailed SWShop to see if they can do anything...if not i'll have to glue it back some how.

LOL...i was actually thinking about keeping it and dont know how SWShop deals with people that dont return items? Charge them full valuie for them?  I'll send them an email and inquire how i can keep this piece for a discount haha.

I imagine they wont take it back and fix it up and re-sell it?  With one broken piece out there it makes it 999 rare complete pieces haha

How much on average did u guys pay for the attakus sandtrooper regular and sandie sargeant?

Back to my windu story.  Got 2 windu maquettes.  SWShop never sent a courier to pick it up or email me that they will charge me for the extra one with a discount!  Bonus!! haha
Title: Re: New Aquisitions....
Post by: ambasah on August 22, 2007, 03:51:48 PM
Good one Dawg! If you ever want to sell or trade the damaged one let me know!

The Attakus exclusive set me back about $450 when everything was said and done.

The regular (which I actually prefer in person) was about $300 off ebay (everything said and done).
Title: Re: New Aquisitions....
Post by: pcdawg on August 22, 2007, 03:58:46 PM
Sure sanjay.  I've left the other windu unopened and probably give a few more weeks before I try to glue the other one back.  Its not apart...but with perhaps some soft hands and a bit of clear glue, it can be close to perfect.

Check PM as well...got an offer u might be intrested in.

I pre-order the sandtrooper sergeant from Attakus, so it cost me full retail. ($400US).  The regular version, which I just recieved as well, is readily available for under $300 on Ebay

... The regular (which I actually prefer in person) was about $300 off ebay (everything said and done).

I like the regular one alot more than I expected as well, somtimes I think it makes the exclusive look a bit static and stiff when they are displayed next to each other.  The exclusive if still my favorite of the two as it looks far better displayed alone.

Dont make me buy more than I want LOL

Im literally kicking myself in the butt as a few years ago I was in Hong Kong and found a small shop that had these attakus statues for about $200 CDN.  I thought wow...expensive and I didnt know what attakus was so i didnt buy them and didnt bother to look up online to see what they were.

I would have literally have most of these for damn cheap if I had know better!!

I love the exclusive sarge peice.  That pose is amazing.

here is my new attakus sandtrooper in his new home.  I am still not sure how to permanently display them.  I dont want to keep adding detolfs and detolfs, any good alternatives to hold far more statues than a detolf.  I need something to display everything on one shelf or cabinet.

Dont waste your time waiting for the SS , hunt around for decent priced Attakus Jango.  If you're patient you can still get one for a good price.  There wont be a better one made by anybody.

From what i heard, even ray park said that the attakus is the most accurate maul out there.

There is a lot of debate as to which maul has the better face sculpt: the GG statue, or this Attakus statue.  I personally like both alot, but I know why and can totally understand why there is such a conflict of opinions: his facial expression on each.

Both are very different and changes the look of the statue.

When it comes to sheer detail, the Attakus is better, but many prefer the facial expression on the GG statue.

Beyond this, every other aspect is superior on the Attakus version, to the point that I can't really see or understand how any other comparisons could be made to the GG version.  Their attention to detail with the formation and natural look of cloth, leather etc is incredible.

Thats great. I have a few of the epic force figures. Picked up a couple on clearance back in the day. I remember seeing the 3 pack at silver snail for crazy money back then too. Wouldn't mind getting them eventually, especially if I could get them for that price!! As ambasah said, the demand for these is quite low. I think the market was just saturated when they came out and therefore never caught on. And the market is so much more saturated now. Good way to collect, waiting a few years and getting stuff then.

Got my 3rd Medicom figure today.  Really nicely detailed.  Only knock is that the neck seems to short and there's no spats (ankle cover-ups).  The viewfinder can go up and down.  Comes with 2 weapons, his favourite blaster and a blaster similar to jango's which fits on his right hip holster.

This guy is just crazy realistic.  Just added him thanks to a hook-up from Phil.  Best statue I have seen.  I know hes not to popular so not alot of people will have a chance to see him in person, so I put a few pics for you guys to see how well it is done.  But it is really tough to show in photos.
The level of detail and the accuracy of the different textures next to each is just uncanny.  Got a couple more things coming, will post more pics later.  The difference is sheen (glossiness) of the different textures is much more apparent in person and even the area around his snout has a thick eneven glossy finish that appears to give it a "snotty" look.  In the photos, everything kinda comes with a glossy finish.

wow slave1, that gamorrean guard looks amazing.  I can picture the details from those pics.

Attakus pieces are truely amazing, unfortunately quite pricey and even with low production runs  they do not sell out quickly.

Post by: Rotaxxx on October 10, 2007, 02:26:52 PM
Hopefully give it time and the prices will come down..a perfect example of this is the Kotobukiya statues, they were quite pricey when they first came out, but have gone down and are quite resonable now. I also like the Attakus pieces but am holding off a bit :)

Yeah, the not-so-popular characters have dropped in price, but it takes some time.  The more popular characters dont come down much or at all.  The problem is waiting to find one that someone is going to part with one, usually with expensive items like this people buy them for keeps.  The best deals come from some of the early non-popular characters that dealers have had lying around for a couple of years, but they are getting wiser and avoiding that now, so its tough to find the recent ones cheap.  I dont think there are gonna to be too many of the newer ones showing up for under 200 like some of the older ones have.

Wow, A good camera goes a long way sometimes.  Here is someones else's pic form another board, looks much more life-like

Nice! I think it's the best of the bunch (of the clones anyhow). What do you think of that new one coming out? I was surprised they decided to go with a character that was never in the movies for their final helmet.

I had a feeling they would do the Utapau shadow clone.  Last year a guy from Japan took a Star Corps helemt and re-painted it like the Shadow clone and it looked fantastic, so I;m sure that's where MR got their inspiration.  Here's the link to the guy's page:

True, I like the Code 3 vehicles as well, but it seems people are too crazy of the MR stuff to care about Code 3 now.  But I noticed since MR announced there will be no X-wing this one has been harder to get.  Glad I got it when I did because it looks like I wont be able to afford it now if I didn't.

I try to frequent it as often as I can.  I also have gotten some great deals on some Gentle Giant items as well in the past.

I have been fortunate to score a few solid deals off CL from that guy recently, that's for sure..I missed out on the Han/Chewbacca, and Yoda II and passed on the Luke in X-wing fatigues  that was being sold a few weeks ago.  When all is said and done though- you are right it worked out to buy one get one free, or even better in some cases..A couple of weeks ago I was able to get 2 gammos and flip them to pay for 1 1/2 of my other Attakus statues.  :scared0008:

They were on sale the Sunday of the THanksgiving weekend. When I went two weeks later to the states I only found one Target that still had the Hoth and Endor Battlepacks and only one of each. All 5 other Targets were sold out.  The RT army sets were easier to find but they certainly were not overstocked.  In my opinion the Hoth and Endor Battlepacks would rank as the best Star Wars toy purchase for the year.  The Target merchants really know how to pick the winners.

Last night I won two ebay auctions from the same seller, one was for a lot of Episode I figures, and the other was a lot of POTJ figures.  There were 34 figures total between the two auctions, and I needed 15 of them to fill holes in my carded collection.  The sweet part is that the total price after shipping charges broke down to $3.68 per figure and I was able to get quite a few of the harder to find Episode I figures for that price.

Queen Amidala Battle
Sio Bibble
Darth Sidious Hologram
R2-B1
Pit Droid 2-pack
Naboo Royal Gaurd

Now I have just three more POTJ and eleven more EP I to track down to finish both those sets.

attakus oola - they continue to show why they are simply the best when it comes to statues.

GG han - the sculpt and paint application are suprisingly good, although the neck seems a bit off.

really think attakus is the best with SW statues?

I would have to disagree regarding the paint - no one can touch attakus. If you go to Silver Snail, they have a few on display...but to each his own.

Sideshow's 1/4 stuff is superb as well (especially their human figs which easily kick attakus' stuff) but I would definately take an attakus vader over sideshow's offering (the same for maul,fett etc).

but the more options, the better for us - who could've imagined all of this even 10 years ago!

have to agree with ambasah, I wasn't crazy about the the Attakus until I starting seeing them in person.  Now I have several.  Nobody can really come close to the realism and quality of the Attakus stuff released in the last couple of years.

I did not think so myself until I saw Attakus in person. 
There is a HUGE difference when you see it in person and in pics surprisingly.  Before I seriously reseached and looked at them in person, I disliked Attakus (especially their early work which is still poor for some statues)

They do incredible work though...really amazing stuff

Grabbed a set of 6 Target 2-pack cylinders when we were down in Phoenix. Some nice troops for $9.99 USD and 2 new Jedi.

Couldn't find all of the Final '07 5 (I only saw Padme/Wolfie which I grabbed @ TRU's BOGO here). I also grabbed all of the TAC '08 figs I needed - they had everything up to #15 Juno Eclipse. Prices varied from around $6.9x (WM/Target) to $7.99 @ KB Toys.

Thanks Major, Sanjai.

Hands down, and in my honest opinion, this is the BEST statue that I've ever seen/owned.  There's a few SW ones that I would classify as awesome, Biker Scout, Rancor, the upcoming SS Wampa/Luke.   But this one takes the cake.  I'm on a mission to complete the whole dio series....

Sanjai, no, this is the regular.  I had the option to pick up the Exclusive, but I too was a bit worried about the light-up feature, similar to the Spidey/Hulk finger issue.  This was a local/cash deal :)

More to post in the coming days :)
Title: Re: New Aquisitions....

I look forward to the other pics - the 3 of them together will be an amazing sight to behold.

I agree with you regarding the exclusive - If I ever was in a position to get it (yeah right) it would have to be local. I would want to ensure the light up function worked properly first hand.

Congrats again!
