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

Just wanted to show a couple (very affordable) 1997-ish Kenner/Hasbro prototype pieces I picked up recently, one of which, at the Cincinnati Toy Show.

This first one is a first shot Kyle Katarn from the "Expanded Universe" Line, it came from a Kenner employee who worked there in Cincinnati through the vintage star wars days, right until the office was closed by Hasbro in 2000. Included with the documentation was a copy of the letter that Hasbro sent everyone to let them know that the Cincinnati office was closing.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This second one if a framed collection of sketches from the "Jabba's Dancers" 3-Pack. Technically based on special edition characters, but I thought it was very interesting for the price. It features little white-out spots and modifications that were made to the design that reflect the final toy, as well as 3.75" scaled down versions which were cut & pasted beside the drawing.

Found the "Archive Series" wave of black series figures a couple days ago. I've sold off most of the black series that I had but I must say, I like having the bounty hunters. popcorn Just need to find Dengar, shouldn't be too hard.

Got this "Korbanth Graflex 2.5" for my birthday. Pretty screen accurate piece that was on sale at the time. I'm gonna try to get a couple upgrade parts at celebration to make it more screen accurate. I've set it up in the ANH style which has 7 hand grips and the "bubble strip".

Thanks, Ian. I have hardly scratched the surface but I can tell the "saber nerds" are just as bad as us, in their own unique way. rofl

There are at least 3 companies that create these replicas, all with their own ups and downs.
