My batteries are dead in my big Millennium Falcon - can anyone tell me where I find the battery compartment?  I have scanned it top to bottom but cannot find it.

I recently purchased the Force Link 2.0 Voice transponder so that my grandkids could play with it, but I need some help with it.  It seems to work fine with most of the figures and vehicles that are marked Force Link 2.0 but when I try it with the newer figures from SOLO all I get is a message saying "Firmware Update Required".  Is there a newer version of this gizmo that works with the Solo line of figures?  Or can it indeed be updated to work with these figures? 
If so, how do I go about doing it?

Any information would be appreciated.

Itís extremely cold and snowy in sunny Mississauga this morning and to top it off, our furnace packed it in on Friday!
We canít get it replaced until Monday so we have the fireplace and three heaters going full time to keep the temperature above 18 inside.
Wish I had a Tauntaun to crawl into.

Here is a heads up for tomorrow's special $5 items.  They are offering all stock in the six inch Black Series - Regular $30 for $5 each!!
My store had Tobias Beckett, Val. L3-37, Qi'ra, Tarkin, Bespin Han and a few others.  There was also a Thrawn but the box was damaged.
If you cant get in for store opening, try calling them to put any away for purchase later in the day.

If anyone is still looking for this hard to find figure I saw three of them this afternoon at my local Loblaw's.  Price was $13.49.  If you would like me to pick up one or more of these I don't mind making a trip back to the store.

A big thanks to Ben for not only hooking me up with Rose and Doris 3-pack, but also delivering it to me.  Great Trooper!

My wife bought me one of these at Longo's here in Mississauga today.  It's an insulated lunch bag, with zippered top, complete with light and sounds when you push the button - on sale for $12.97.  I think it is kind of neat and I am sure my grand kids will like to play with it.

Wampa Cave / This little beauty
« on: November 22, 2016, 07:42:19 PM »
Disney has just released a 1/6th scale line of Elite figures - the first two being Kylo Ren and this little beauty, Rey.  They are not quite Sideshow Collectibles quality, but darn close...and at less than a quarter of the price!  They feature 30+ points of articulation, extra accessories like guns, hands, back packs etc.  Real cloth costumes and great paint job.  I passed on Kylo, but I couldn't resist Rey.  They are in the Disney stores now at $43.95.

The Toys - Snowtrooper Reviews! / Legendary Yoda
« on: February 13, 2016, 01:07:12 PM »
I just opened up my new Legendary Yoda toy today, powered him up with 6 "C" cells, and started to play with him at once.  He is very responsive to voice controls and very active, especially with the light saber attached.  That is for the attack mode. I had him placed too close to one of my display shelves and he wiped out a whole row of Stormtroopers with it! For his wise mode, you swap out the light saber for his cane.  There is also a "force" mode which I haven't tried yet.
I am not sure if he is worth the original $199 they were asking, but at $50 you definitely get a lot of play value.  I can't wait for my five year old granddaughter to come over to play with it.

Star Wars Art / Special Drawing for Grandpa
« on: January 09, 2016, 12:51:44 PM »
My granddaughter, Noelle, who is just turning five in a couple of weeks drew this special picture for me, knowing that I love Star Wars.
She plays with my toys when she comes to visit but she has none of her own at home, so this is all from memory.
