I’m with you on that Grant, some nice Lukes you have there there.
I’m still looking for a Luke X Wing and a Fett on Italian GIG cards if anyone can help. :D

Another day... :)

Sadly this is the second Kylo I have bought but the only one to turn up. Ordered the first from Staractionfigures two weeks ago and instead of sending me the VC figure they sent me some shite force link thing and now they are radio silent (after five chases to their un-customer services) - anyway... rant over.

The 6inch Maul is amazing, from forbidden plant, waiting for the Obi Wan to arrive now.

Totally agree with you, so pleased that I managed to get a Maul the other week.
I’m surprised about Star Action Figures, I’ve never had any issues in the past.
I know that they have been under pressure as Force Friday crashed their web site ordering system.
Good luck with getting an email exchange.

I just finished my POTF 2 THX leaflet figs after 20 year's with the lando. I don't normally collect modern but i have a soft spot for these. It wasn't that these where difficult to find i just left them in the box and decided it was time to finish them. If anyone knows of any i don't have please let me know as i am sure iv seen a hoth rebel command with a THX leaflet once before.

I'm sure they will eventually get back to me and either refund or ship the figure i actually paid for. That said, i have almost zero tolerance in this day and age for businesses that have websites crashing etc. Triple Force Friday was known about for months, simple burst capacity takes minutes to sort out and any cost is more than covered by your continued uptime and sales - it is a very poor business that doesn't deal with that and then to simply writing on your customer contact section, 'Don't email us we're busy..." that is beyond unacceptable, it ain't 1999, if you run an online business 24/7 is the minimum requirement. (sorry, i spent years working in e-commerce so this gets me going a bit :) - point of principle more than anything else)

Odeon had the same issue a few years back when Force Awakens tickets came on sale and Lego used to suffer when they ran major campaigns - both got slammed for it, so it isn't just small guys who get it wrong, just no excuses.

Anyway, i do love seeing all the 'Old - Modern' figures. Keep em coming.... i have two more coming in from the US that will finish the Phantom run and one more tin that get's me 9 of the 10 30th tins - so one to get after that.

Thanks mini99 I will take a look at this as I don't have any reference's at hand other than the 2 waves on the rear of the card and a few online resources. I know most hate these figures but they where for me the first star wars on the shelves in years and was lucky enough to have a family member buy me a few at the time.

Your welcome.
For me these were the first Star Wars figures I bought in a shop (being a bit older than a lot on here!) so they hold great memories.
I sold all mine including a set of THX ones in 2011, but missed them, so have been putting another Red ceded run together on Italian cards - GIG.
Two left to go which are proving tough to get!
If you like the information on that link, I do have links for Green POTF2 and EP1 if you would like them.
Nick.

Thanks Nick i think i am going to just stick with these ones for my collection as i said i don't really collect modern but occasionally pick up the odd bit i like. The link for the Episode 1 stuff would be helpful i can pass that onto my brother who has almost finished everything accept the accesorie packs i think.

thanks again

Grabbed too much Force Friday stuff to show and also i dont need any evidence around for the missus to chop my left gonad off but i have to say guys, if youre wondering about the carbonised figures then Jesus H Christ the Sith Trooper is magnificant and the best of the 4 carbs. Oooh shiny :mrgreen:
