These are the black series 6'' line, and bloody hell Monkey you really did go all out. A very nice haul indeed, I stupidly let slip the Luke/yoda pack and R2 like an idiot. -.-

Think ill hold out for a clean version and a new C3P0, I oddly enough do have any of their old releases.

Yeah - i am an all or nothing sort of person.

The SW ones were cheep due to damaged bubbles, the Chewie almost lifts off, but they were cheep :)

There should be three more to arrive, Luke Snowspeeder gear, Probe Droid and the Snowspeeder - i think at that point that is all the Empire 6" 40th stuff?

I will slowly get the other SW figures, but they are a bit much on a figure by figure bases so may take a while.

I can see Hasbro slowly doing all '96' figures in 6" vintage style, which means i can see me getting them :D

Looks like you are on top of those releases, nice one. I ended up ordering a 2nd Hoth Luke and Han to keep carded as well as a cheap as hell Hoth Leia in the older BS box to open, and keep the carded version sealed.

I may even get a 3rd Luke and Leia to use their bodies for some customs. Hmmm Toryn Farr maybe and some other random rebels for some variation.

Nabbed a 2nd Han, Luke and Leia to keep carded and the others to open. I have robbed the X-Wing helmet off of the Hoth Luke statue to see if it fits on Leia, the base Im going to use for the snow speeder. Hmmmm Ideas are running wild. 8)

I think, the Snow speeder Luke cardback has got to be my favourite out of the entire line closely followed by the rebel trooper. Might have to find another Luke as I want one for the speeder, not going to be opening the cardbacks.....Oh the pain :lol:

Nice pickups guys! i think that Luke Snow speeder card is really well done, one of my favourites, the whole 40th wave is pretty good though, i do love the rebel trooper, i hope we get a jedi rebel commando figure with the same face changing gimmick, not that i open them, but the option would be nice :D

I had wave 1 and 2 retro collection sealed but they were doing absolutely nothing for me - just two brown boxes sitting in a wardrobe so I sold them with no intention of buying any more........... I walk into Tesco today...... See the Empire figures actually on the shelf and instantly turn into an eight year old :lol: :lol: :lol:

Han Hoth is one of my fav figures and Boba just looks so cool.

Liking the extra tab protection on them

Now if they'd just release a R2

Well done in finding a Fett.
The ASDA where I work had 4 in last week, first time that I had seen the ESB figures.
Of corse none of thise were a Fett or Yoda, which are the only two that I want... I will keep looking every day that I’m in work.

I am collecting the retro collection and Han in Hoth Gear is one of my faves. I have Wave 3 on order which will also include Cara Dune and I lost the plot and bought a Darth Vader Prototype from the US!
