OK, it's October, but this is when that FAO Catalogue arrives and you usually point out: I want this, need that, and can't go on in life without one of these....

Well, this year's sucked. The only SW stuff I saw was the AotC chess set, Jabba's Palace Lego Playset, and the new MR F/X Lightsabers.

I got what I want for Christmas planned though, so post here as you add to that list ;)

Mine:

Collecting
AotC Chess set
(oh, more is to come. These usually come from my parents seeing they cost more. I'll flip through a Brian's and pick out some old stuff I may need like Endor playset if nothing new comes)

non-Collecting
Indiana Jones Trilogy DVD
Matrix DVD
Matrix Reloaded DVD
LotR: Fellowship of the Ring DVD
LotR: The Two Towers DVD
(3 sisters each with 50 some dollars for each person, one gets the Indy set, another the two Matrix films, and the third the LotR ones :D)

I'll add onto the list as I find more stuff and may end up replacing others. I don't have enough money to get all those DVDs and video games and books I may have my eye on. (Jedi Academy XBOX, GTA: Vice City XBOX, NEW Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels, Jedi Shadow, Jedi Sunrise.... So overwhelming!)

I know you got a sister, but I got 3. I dunno how that'd work out in gift/ cash quantities.

I find when you get cash as a gift, you actually get more through gift form. I'd get 200 through cash, but you see, if I get it through collectibles, it could be up to 300 :eek: That's because my dad wants the stuff too and uses the holiday to stock up since my mom hates my room and basement :D

And, Z? Wait for the XBOX 2 if you get 1000 dollars ;)

The only way I'll get 1000 bucks is if I save up for 2 years, and for me, thats impossible :p

I could get an XBox, seeing as there isn't much else that I really want.... But I'll probably get more games for the cube and PC isntead... I dunno. Andrew will probably get an XBox, so I think I won't. ;)

Star Wars gifts for Christmas. Hmm, I remember that I have got two books, one Jabbas Palace booster and game : Star Wars Episode I : The Phantom Menace. On this Christmas I want to get Tropico 2 and probably something with Star Wars example - books or booster.

OK, as you may or may not know, I got the Indy Trilogy the day it came out and am gonna finish it off today with Last Crusade and the making of it.

That means I can add 007: Everything or Nothing and Jedi Academy to my list.

Now, onto SW:

Red ARC Trooper if one is not found in the store.

ALOT different. Retail price is 200 dollars and it is a scaled model and not a toy. I have the Lego X-Wing like that half completed under my bed. It was SUPER reduced.

I asked for a bunch of random stuff, including those vintage SW figures that are seemingly impossible to find. I have a Obi-Wan figure and a Darth Vader figure, both of which are missing limbs/ a head (in Vaders case :( ). I've also had to replace the original sabers with colored toothpicks, which (IMO) work much better.;)

What figures in paticular? Blue Snaggletooth I'm guessing is one of them?

Mostly ones with lightsabers, like Vader, Luke (ANH and ESB) and Obi-Wan because...well...

I just totally got addicted to the toothpick sabers! They work so well! And you can put in your own color and everything!

:sweat:

ESB Luke doesn't have a saber that goes into his arm. It's a seperate thing as is Jedi Luke.

Vintage guys aren't hard to come by in crummy condition for reasonable prices. Hell, I found some good ones for 4.50 a pop and got around 30 of those and then got around 10 high end ones for about 10-15 each.

I played with the 4.50 ones before Kenner came out with the PotF2 line in '95 so I have some fond memories of them, but don't collect them at all. I have them all on display and wouldn't ever sell them for new stuff but have no desire to get any more.

I found a few vintage guys at the convention for 3.50-10. I think there were a few sabers there, probably not in that great of condition though.

I have 30 dollars left for Christmas money. i think I'll just buy Halo and that's it :)

That's what I all got, but my XBOX doesn't work atm. It's been locking up since around Thanksgiving and Best Buy has yet to do anything about it :mad:

Seinfeld is the best so far. I haven't watched any LotR yet.
