Luv the bendem really need there own thread because there so cool

just two pickups lately more choosy with modern now a-days picked up the bossk not a fan of the mash ups but well its bossk at smiths for I think £4:50 and the rey in aldi for £4.95 picked it up as I miss read the price thought it was £2.95 even at that price I did not pick any of the others up as they did not appeal to me, but under a fiver was ok for Ray

You can't hate bendems they are special, the jury is out on ewoks :)

Yeah leave the bendems alone :D personally I never minded the ewoks, but I get why people don't
Nice bossk figure and I've seen the boxed figures, got about five or six of the earlier wave they did, not picked up this later wave yet, they were at 6.99 in aldi, which to me for what they are is a bit pricey

When I took the ray out to display I was disappointed how hollow, thin cheap plastic it was more like some cheap 70's bubble bath container, with no articulation to the mid arms wrists or the legs, very bad Hasbro, as the teachers report used to say, you must try harder, more like a bootleg, no they probably would have articulated the legs :x :) not worth the £5 more like £3

Nice one Chiffy,thats one cool looking helmet 8) might just have to look into getting one myself :D

Picked up a few pieces over the last few weeks...

Finally got the last of the Flashback figures,there are 11 figures in this small line and it took ages for me to snag the last one...C3-PO...

Image

ROTS Figure...Commander Gree

Image

A couple more Episode 1 figures...

Image
Image

Also managed to pick up another Rogue One piece...Popped into my local TRU to see if any new pieces were available and came across this 'VS' set....Looked into it and 'I Think' its a Toys R Us exclusive I could be proved wrong though...

Yeah nice set of figures there mate, didn't realise there were 11 figures in the flashback line, very cool
Popped into TRU on my way home today, picked up this Ray figure, they didn't have much in rogue one wise

supposed to be 7.99 but went through the till at a fiver, bonus :D, the black series 6 inch were reduced to £14.99 but again I had everything they were offering

Yeh I've noticed that TRU are a bit thin on the Rogue One line...not too sure when any new waves are released ?
