You know what..that Poe head and face sculpt is actually pretty good!

'Trooper is on point as well. Now you need a Finn to set up the "TRAITOR!" scene. lol!

I picked up a couple of BS figures as well. I'll add the pictures in a bit!

Nice additions Matt, so cool you got the prototype armor Fett cheers
Yes, overall Poe got good reviews this time around for his face sculpt.
That Tusken looks good!

Thanks Paul.

Prototype Fett is one of the main reasons I want to display them loose.

Decisions, decisions.

Have you seen the rest of Wave 10?

I haven't seen all of them and in a way don't want to as I can't afford this damn addictive and expensive line that's not even vintage up yours lol!

Some of the figs look great displayed in their box while others are a bit odd (the Stormie in the two pack I recently added looks like he's disco dancing). If I had the space I'd def display them loose in action poses with their boxes in the background.

A quick picture of my recent pick-ups.

I recently won 3 out of 4 Fantasy Football pools I was in, and after banking 80% of the winnings, I spent the rest on these.



- Luke (Hoth) and Wampa
- Han (Hoth) and Tauntaun
- Biker Scout and Speeder Bike
- Jabba the Hutt


I didn't have any of them, and they were all part of one auction.

I believe it was less than $35 each with free shipping.

:Drool:   :Drool:  Great score Matt! I remember seeing the Speeder Bike and Jabba sets in my local toy store at the time and thought they looked good.

Nice score Matt. I haven't forgotten about getting you the shipping quote. It's been busy, but I have them in hand set aside to send one to you.

There's no rush, don't worry!

Here are my two recents:

Darth Malgus (loose)



Originally carded, but the bubble was knocked into oblivion and I decided to be merciful.

Darth Plagueis (mint carded)





Probably #1 on the list for sought after 3.75" B.S. figures.

I'm not looking to get into the 3.75" line, but these were two of my favorites and aren't available in the 6" (yet!)

Have a few more Black Series coming soon but for now here are two figs I picked up while in the UK for just a fiver each. Bargain! Very Happy




Finn (Jakku version)







First Order Flametrooper. Wasn't much struck by this figure at first but once it came out of the pack and got into poses I was impressed.

Was well pleased to finally add the Boba Fett Prototype Armour to the run at last. What a cool figure cheers













Also picked up a bargain Greedo. Box is a little beat hence the cheap price and free postage.

Great looking figures, Paul!

Surprisingly (or maybe unsurprisingly) I haven't been focusing on the Force Awakens B.S. figures. They look good though, and I think if I come across them cheap, I'll snatch them up.

Same goes for Rogue One. I'm starting to see the prices drop in GameStop and such.

Congrats on Fett! He's a beauty. Greedo is a steal as well.

BTW have you seen these?

Black Series 40th Anniversary Figures:









I'm thinking about pre-ordering the first wave. I don't have anyone except for Luke.

Cheers Matt. Yeah I saw the 40th anniversary set and it looks amazing! Going to be a real commitment and expense to try and put that together. I already have artoo and almost snagged a Han recently but the Greedo I got (in this case) shot first lol!

They displayed the new figures coming out. So excited!




I also picked up this special exclusive from Black Series:




Prices on eBay are bananas. Supposedly it's the most requested re-release and at the same time, rarest BS figure. Really cool how they did it on a card like the other 40th anniversary releases.

Very nice :Drool: LXWP was the first release of the line and received an overall postive review. Sticking it on a card like that was sure to be a winner. Great addition Matt cheers

Thanks!

And yeah, so many good characters to be released. They even have the main character of the recently announced Battlefront II. She'll be a GameStop exclusive.

And I believe Jaina Solo was the fan vote that won out, so they made her as well.

That is awesome Matt cheers I'm guessing the figures come clean out of their MOC for display, and not so they damage the bubble and cardback?

The legacy pack only comes with the special edition Vader, stand, background etc.

The others are sold separately/ coming out in June.

That 40th Anniversary stand looks great.
There looks like loads of really great stuff coming out for the 40th, but we don't seem to be seeing much of it over here in the U.K.

@Artoo_Detour

Wave 11 hit the open market. I'm going to be actively searching for Lando and Tusken Raider!

...I think they botched QGJ's face though. No

PS - Shout out to @trappedtexan for sending me this great two-pack! Thanks again, Bryan.
