The High End: Replicas & Statues / Re: MR Blasters???
« on: April 05, 2006, 07:18:02 AM »
Thank you very much guys!

I was looking for either the Stormtrooper blaster or Han's...  Would sure like to get the ANH but it's a little too pricey...

Anyways, thanks again!

The High End: Replicas & Statues / MR Blasters???
« on: April 04, 2006, 12:53:09 PM »
Hey folks!

I've been considering purchasing one or two of the Blasters from the Master Replicas collection.

I just wanted to know if they could be shipped to Canada or within Canada?

Do any of you own some and how did you proceed to get them shipped to you?

Finally, do you know of any stores that sell them in Canada?  Futureshop shows one in stock but when you reach check out, it's out of stock.

Thanks for all the help you guys can provide on this!

Wampa Cave / #35 Palpatine **SPOILERS**

Hello to all,

Just bought this figure at walmart.  I thought it was supposed to come with Sidious' red lightsaber, I got Darth Vader's red saber.

Is this supposed to be, I'd feel cheated if Canada got the wrong lightsaber mold the right colour, referring to original US blue lightsaber.

Anyways, if anyone can enlighten me, please do.

Thanks

I missed out on the second half of the first season of Clone Wars.  Can't wait to get the DVD 'cause those cartoons were just what Star Wars was to me.  Grand Battles intercut with moving main character actions.

Just rocked on the first ten episodes I saw.

How was the rest?

It gets worse, just bought a sneek peak today, and they're taped on the sides, Glued on the top and bottom and worst of all, the cardboard itself is way thinner than usual, leaving more chance for bends.

I'm an opener, but I foresee that carded collectors will be extremely mad because the tape will eventually come unglued and the cards are likely to sway and stay that way at little or no pressure.

Disapointing for carded collectors I suppose.

Other than that, the packaging is radically different, but pleasing to the eye.  Marketing was correctly done to avoid having full walls of unsellable figures after E3 hits.

Hi everyone!

I'm born and bread, save for University years from the Ottawa, Ontario region.

My folks started my addiction to Star Wars collecting when I was 5, around the time ROTJ came out to the theatres.  I remember laughing like hell at Wicket when he swung that rock in his face during the Endor battle.

My first figures were Han Solo and Squid face, along with that came the speeder bike and the land speeder.

Ever since then, I've been a proud collector of Star Wars action figures, POTF2 was big for me.  I had every figure and then I slacked a bit through E1, POTJ and Saga.  Heck I didn't touch anything from the OTC line save for the vintage remakes, those are great by the way.

Recently I have parted with a significant portion of my SW collection and I am enthused at the Transformers Binaltech line, sorry for that, but the metal versions of those new molds of old characters are to die for.

Not to say that I will drop Star Wars, I will concentrate on main themes and Characters.

Please feel free to ask any questions related to collecting, I feel I am very knowledgeable about such things!

Anyways, feels great to find a Canuck site on one of my addictions!!

Any more left at Sparks Street Zellers??? I went to Billings Bridge one and they had jack!! Damn it, went to the wrong one today!!
They had about 16 figures on the peg, retract the one I bought so 15 left.

They had the same number of each four figures, I went around 12hr30 so their may yet be some left in the morning.

Good luck!!

Forgot to add, Tion Medon looks like he's got curdoroy pants face or like he fell asleep on a rippled pillow and just woke up.

Very scary.

The figure also comes with a description for all four figures, Tion is said to be the administrator of the Utaupan world where Obi-wan is sent to hunt down Grievious.

Nothing else of much interest that is not known.

Until next time!

Just bought the Wookie Warrior down at the Zellers on Sparks Street Mall down in Ottawa.

They had all four Sneek Peaks, great looking cards, lava's a real image and not drawn.  A bit too much tape on the packaging if you ask me, the card is glued bottom and top and taped on the sides.

As for the wookie, its very similar to VOTC chewy save for one less segment on the abdomen and the arms are articulated like VOTC Lando.  Finally, the feet don't swivel.

This is a massive figure about half an inch taller than VOTC chewy but the width is unbelievable.  When you do get it for yourselves, let me know if you think that the hat looks better worn backwards

Comes with removable shin pads, hat and wookie weapon, a bowcaster would have been better.

Anyways good arctic hunt.

These are way better than E2 preview, articulation is wonderful!!!
