Now with TRU gone that opens the door for another retailer to jump in and offer exclusive items. The only normal stores that carry TBS6 is Target and Myer (does DJs???), myer did have the Chewie Exclusive so maybe that could be their next one. Otherwise Ebay or online stores are the way to go.

After a few good years collecting when shipping costs were low and the $AUD was high I found myself on struggle street and realised all I could afford of these figures was clearance sales or cheap auctions. I pick things up a year after release if at all. I just picked up a Baze Malbus 6” for 15 bucks on an eBay auction tonight, so that rounds out my R1 collection nicely, save for Tarkin who will have to wait. It’s tough seeing the Clone Commanders hanging at $70 on the secondary market. A waiting game as most of them come down.

Does anyone know who in Australia might be getting the Black Series Gamorrean guard?
Hasbro confirmed a few weeks back on email that "at this stage we are not getting this character in Australia".

Saw the Solo carded wave including Val, Beckett, L3, Emperors royal guard etc at Big W today...not collecting many 3 3/4" figures anymore. But it was nice to see new stock on the pegs.

Received a couple of HotToys 12" figures in the past week or so...I have to say if you have even the slightest interest in Dark Side Anakin don't hesitate in picking him up. The sculpt looks phenomenal with the Sith eyes and the base is all kinds of cool. I remember when Sideshow released their RotS Anakin and then the exclusive Sith eyed Anakin back in the day I was kicking myself for skipping the exclusive(with its special base)...ahh those were the days.

My Deluxe Emperor Palpatine 12" Hot Toys arrived from Popcultcha on Monday...I was a bit nervous when looking at him in box but once I got him out and put up his hood I was sold. I am yet to find a space for him on the shelves so he is resting back in his box for the moment. I look forward to futzing him at a later date. ;)

The sail Barge is coming to Australia in the near future, I'd hate to think how much it'll cost here.

Do you have a link Adam? I don't seem to be able to find it on their site.


Sorry for the late reply mate.

Was only available to a Facebook group and then briefly on their site for about 2 seconds. LOL!

No worries mate...now that I think about it I think I do remember seeing the barge on LTC's website a fair while back.

I remember thinking it was a bit expensive....if only I had known I may have considered it more closely.

Have seen a few unboxings the last day or 2 and man it sure is impressive!

This barge is so well made and has every detail you can imagine.

Is it worth $1000.00 + though, I don't know. :whistling:

Yeah I think I'll just get the new skiff and be done with it

I can't see myself dropping that kind of coin on this....I mean you can pick up Sideshow's new 12" scale Jabba and environ for less.

$1000+ is just a little pricey for it myself. I don't know if I can justify it atm.

Yeah it's a lot of coin to drop on one item.

Jus getting all that cash at once to drop on it is my problem.

If they had a payment plan then maybe.....

Received a few 6" Black Series figures from LTC today....Hasbro are really hitting their straps with these Dengar would have to be my favourite. Really well detailed. Skiff Lando is another stand out.

Has the Vintage Collection wave that includes the skiff guard Klaatu and Yak Face been seen anywhere yet?

I'll definitely be getting this and will be my new centrepiece.

It may be worth $1000 to buy now and will only increase but its real value will be how it's displayed.

Hasbro sold out of the international Sail Barges very quickly.

Yeah only 400 for the rest of the world outside of the US and Canada....kind of glad I didn't have the money/space in the end...

...I think I would have had massive buyers remorse.

It went live from 6am EADT and it took all of 10 minutes for them to disappear. I had been up since before 5am waiting for it so I did get one. It's now in Kentucky having the customs documentation made up. Even though I don't have a place for it just yet. I will MAKE space for it.

So does anyone have any info on the Jabba's Palace Playset?

Are we likely to see a local release.....or at the very least are any of the local etailers going to stock it.

Mad Zombie is the only local place that has it on pre order but it's at an insane $174.00. :rolleyes:

Where are people going for the Yakface/Klaatu wave? Have we missed it, or is it still coming?
