Star Action Figures web site is a little bit slow but only took me 10 minutes to get on the site.
Just pre ordered these...I’m a sucker for Ep1 packaging.
What are your thoughts?

Just had a look, I don't think you can go far wrong with these to be honest and you are right on about the packaging it does look good. Now, would we get a young Anakin? hmmmmm.


Looks like a Clone Wars Maul and Ashoka for the vintage collection, I might grab those two depending on the cardback art (I dont open the VC stuff). Expensive couple of months ahead of us...... :roll: :lol:

Just pre ordered the bad batch trooper for now.

Yeah - but my OCD will get the better of me so i will have to track them down :D

Hopefully i secured all the Empire ones and they should arrive next week and then i will look at the best sort of prices for the SW ones, or if people here have spares or want to look at trades etc. we will see - but i can't believe some of the prices for mass produced and widely available figures.

Don't really know why i passed on them the first time around - but there you go...

Watch out for a big photo post next week when the Empire figures come in.

Well, I did not see this one coming. Oddly enough, I was thinking the other day why didnt I get Cal. I thought he was going to sit around for ages and I could prioritise on other figures but nope I was wrong.

Different version, kind of like him so ill grab this one.

Vintage collection Carbon Cara Dune available for pre order. Honestly, grab her whilst you can. Prices have gone absolutely mental so would be worth grabbing one whilst you can. Glad I got the normal VC and BS Cara long ago.

I remember initially being a little miffed having to go through ebay to grab the black series at £30 plus P&P way back, at least I was able to pick up the VC release at retail though. Its odd really; and I think I said before, I thought that the black series Cara would hang around for a little bit when the first batch got released but she was gone almost instantly, as was IG-11. I am unsure if that is true for the US market, it was for the Uk and from what my friend over in Hong Kong told me, he couldn't find her at all out there.

Now, for the interesting bit. We was bound to get another run, like the Durasteel Mando' and carbon version and by the way those I found easier to get hold of. Then the apocalypse started, China ramped up anti western sentiment ten fold floods bursting dams and crop famine had a massive impact in the Asia-Pacific. So the odds really stacked up against us in that respect, did they already have a bunch in component bins ready to go. Whilst Hasbro has stopped its production, I can guarantee you that we will see a fair few trickle out be it loose or boxed and will we see some of these in bargain stores (it happens a lot).

Id be interested in case composition for the UK and compare it to those state side, as we do get different packing fills at times too. Was she a short fill?

hmmm

Well, I decided to treat myself in the future. Pre ordered the Deluxe set as that sculpt is just amazing in my opinion. Pricey but it is two figures, so works out not so bad, a standard version will be available at some point but honestly go for the deluxe. DB94, will he be added to the shelf? :o :lol:

I'm really looking forward to him being released, I have held off getting a Boba for a long time so its just right for me. I do hope we get a Fennec Shand, the two would look just perfect. :P
