Those comic packs look great Chris, I agree the Vuuzahn Vong was a brilliant figure, as for darth talon, well yeah she's not a Disney princess that's for sure! Very Happy
They did quite a few comic packs, and they were good value for money, on the secondary market they all seem to be expensive, I was lucky to win a cammie and fixer one for a good price on ebay a couple of years ago, that's still the only one I own

Got this delightful figure at a toy show last weekend. It's impressive that this was even made since its the better old version of Han & Leia's kid.  rofl Sure, it was a fan's choice poll so it became a PR issue.

That's a cool looking figure, so that's from the old cannon, not read any of that stuff, is it any good do you know?

Thrawn Trilogy and New Jedi Order #1: "Vector Prime", are my recommendation, the later is pretty interesting. 15-20 years after ROTJ the entire galaxy is invaded by space orcs that are unaffected by the force. popcorn

I'm pretty happy with it. Now to get a Super NT so I can play them properly in HD with a wireless controller. rofl

I know I was commenting on how much I loved the art on the ESB box before, but now that I see them all together, the other two are just cropped versions of the standard posters. Maybe I'm ignorant but I don't recall seeing that ESB image used anywhere else. scratch

I love the gammy guard, I've yet to see them in person over here, hoping to pick one up at a con, it looks a solid figure, the 3 and 3 quarter version is my favourite figure out of the black series line

Yeah I’ve really pretty much stopped buying these and the ones I do get I’m opening. The last one before this was 4-Lom.

I really like this tbough, might be my favourite black series 6” figure.

I also found this at a comic shop yesterday:  rofl

It certainly looks like a solid figure, and the Ephant Mon figure is another of my favourites, great score
