It was the Anakin/ Vader 3 Pack (http://www.rebelscum.com/swevol_AS-DV.asp). Eff'ing amazing. As good as VotC. Great packaging and detail and play value. Cheaper too. $20 for 3 guys opposed $10 for a single guy. I did not get it. I had $13 in my pocket (I bought Sin City the other day so that's where the rest went) and it was pretty smashed up. I coulda borrowed money from a friend, but didn't wanna pay full price for this thing. I asked if I could get a discount and the cashier said no. I told them I'd go to Target and TRU from now on for my collecting needs and left. A lie, yes, but c'mon. This thing was smashed to a pulp. Even though I was taking them out, I keep the boxes and like them to be C8/ C9. I'll eventually get it.

Anyhow, these things are fricken sweet. Keep an eye out fellas ;) I'd like an EU Kyle Evolution one. Dark Forces, Jedi Knight, Jedi Outcast. Sweet :cool:

The figures in this aren't just repackages, are they? Its hard to tell.

Hell no! These things are eff'ing awesome. As I said above, as good as VOTC. Of course they're remakes of old figures, but they're the best of the best. Worth it alone for RotS Anakin because all other versions so far suck.

Ah, I see, I'll have to pick them up.

BTW, Andrew went to CT for the weekend, and he said he's gonna pick me up a vintage Greedo! They have some vintage toy store down there.

I don't think the other two are out yet....

Nah, not carded. They aren't too much. He said he was gonna try to get some Imperials for his vintage Death Star scene.

Yeh, I heard about the Palpy and Clones packs. I think theres actually two planned Clone sets, different color schemes.

Yeah, so I saw. I may have to get the 'rare' one and leave it in because the packaging is so damned cool.

Yah, i got your greedo, and myself a mon mothma carded cus i never had one carded. He had absolutely NONE vintage on the card. And he refused to sell me 12" (actually like 14) vintage vader's saber loose. I went for the reason of getting indy stuff...He had 1...1! and it was indy as german with no hand..12$ my a$$. Needless to say i passed.

$12 ain't bad if he had no hand. I think one of my figures is missing a thumb.... I glued it back on because the vendor had it :p I think it's normal Indy; I have two others since. One is complete C9, the other we just got no accesories for $30 for the convoy truck.

Nice repaints...one of the few times repaints excite me.

Well there isn't really a lot you can do with the clones besides repaint them. :p

Or one of those "lightsaber swinging" actions.

well the clone repaints are just the same as the 1st figures. They are fine, I kinda wish I got a few more white clones when they was out in full stock.

Well my clone army is up to 9 now, four commanders, bacara, 1 41 clone, atte gunner and 2 red clones. I think I might try to get my clone army to up around 15 or something like that. I do have money since I sell my useless stuff that I dont need on ebay. If I didnt sell anything on ebay, its doubtful that I would havent even got what I have now. Anyone got that clone evolutions pack? I am thinking about getting it today before they sell out.

I can not help talking, it is addictive.
my clone army is at 9 as well, and i still hjave yet to get bacara, the gunner or any repaints. I want the evolution pack alot, especially for the sand trooper, but i doubt ill open it.

well im sorry to say now my clone army is now 14(Ep3 Wise) I have a few ep2 clones, maybe about 5 with that arc and 2 pilots for the ep2 gunship. One of these days im gonna set them up along with my wookies and droids and have a grand scale war happen. So far my wookie army is about 15, droid army 10 and clones around 20 including the ep2 clones.

08-24-2005, 01:15 PM
Yeah... Thats what i did for ep2..but i just cant do it niw. damn.

My Wookie army is the best for my RotS collection. Hardly have any repeats of clones. My best army scene is my Clone Wars one, but I still think Andrew's dwarfs mine ;) My cantina/ Jabba's Palace is cooler though! :p

I saw the Anakin Evoltuon pack today at Wal Mart for 20. Passed, but I did get the number 50 Anakin and Baraca. They also had 500th Vader.

I just got a guitar, and I have to pay $188... so... yeah. Won't be getting much SW for awhile.

I got the same figs in oxford mike, but also the new unleahes..asajj, vader, sidious/yoda. No evolution packs. And yah...guitar, maybe in like 2 weeks ill order mine, maybe not.

How good is that Palp/yoda unleashed? I was concidering getting that. But kinda wanted to build up my clone army. Ive also set up my own Jabba palace, katarn. Im gonna try to get some pics up soon.

Its OK but not that awsome. Id say spend ur money on clones. My jabbas palace scene i think is to the par of Katarns, but my cantina lacks, especially since hes got the whole band.

Katarn07
08-26-2005, 03:23 AM
They weren't cheap either, butr the band sealed the deal for me :cool:

Haven't seen your scene for a while. The pics I saw were two years old so I'm sure it's better now. New Jabba since than among other figures. Do you have the pop up diorama? Last time you didn't. You need to get that; it's a must.

And Zappa, don't think I've seen your scene so I'll hold my tongue when bragging when I can't compare them ;)
