No offense, but I don't think Barada and Kithiba are the same character.... You found Kithiba... with the Brown or Red Bandana?

Yes, sorry, Kithaba. For some reason I thought the card said Barada. It has a brown bandana I have yet to find a red bandana, of course, this is the first one I have seen in the wild though.

I made the same mistake... did a little research because I was wondering if I could get rid of the Old Skiff Guard 3-Pack Barada and replace him with Kithiba.... and figured out they are not the same. I see many people making this mistake so I thought I would throw that out there.

I read this and to show you where my excitement level is right now, left work at 3:30 and went home. I'll find what I need when I find them. To hell with hunting. Tired and bored.

Toys r us Is by far the most expensive. Do not buy them there. Everywhere else (Walmart target an the Lego store are all the same). Tru is $40 higher on some sets.

Has anyone had any luck with the Dollar General G.I. Joes? I've been going nuts hunting for these and can't find squat. I just hit six stores (5 yesterday) and keep coming up empty.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Indy, keep an eye on Lego.com They always have online sales. Target is also good and usually has some sort of sale, but LotR is hit or miss. Even though TRU is expensive, they are good for sales, so keep an eye on them if they have buy one get one free or buy one get one 50% off, also if you have rewards coupons, those help bring them even lower, but yeah, reg price at TRU is a joke.

I still haven't seen the DG Joes. I'm having my fam check in other states too, lol.

Nope - I have seen zilch. Supposedly someone on hisstank has found them several times, but the two stores I was hitting regularly either never got them or never put them out. I asked several times and they had no idea what I was talking about. I gave up and bought the Snake Eyes on ebay...

I found the Malgus wave (must have only been once case since they only had one of each - or someone already picked over the rest at the Target on Lake Cook in Buffalo Grove. They had everybody BUT Malgus hanging on the pegs, I took Luke. I'm tempted on the Imperial Navy Officer- though I have to admit I'm holding out for a true vintage grey suit version, which I bet will be out soon to help them get their money's worth out of that mold.

Sounds cool Higa. Just sent you a pm.

I had the chance to hit the Schaumburg TRU yesterday - they're selling the blue packaged Deluxe Figure w/ Vehicle sets for $11.99. Was able to score the only Yavin Tech w/ Sled at that store, but check out other stores they could have it and for such a low price it's a damn good deal.

Hey all, man I have been missing out! Too much craziness with two international travels in less than a month. However, I do want to reconnect and find out if there is any interest for C6? I still have a room for the group at the Raddison near the convention center for $40 for the full 4 days. It would be fun to get a group to go.

Later

Lars, I'll beat at C6 (sharing a place with my buddy) - we should try to get as many of the CTF crew who will be there together at some point.

I had the opportunity to hit the stores around Golf Mill today and there is a huge lack of anything right now. Nothing but wave 1 Movie Heroes and last year's Saga Legends. Loads of crap, between poor distribution and insane case assortments it's very dire out there. Funniest thing I saw was at Kohl's - 2011 TCW figures for $12.99!

How was the weather by you guys? Everyone okay? We finally got power around midnight this morning. Town looks like a bomb went off, lol.. we were pretty much untouched, but some neighbors, not so much:


Our "biggest" damage.. my poor garden


Neighbor behind me...


kinda creepy...


Let me know if you guys need a place.. I know the owner, we can get you a deal...



wow... prob the worse damage I saw, 3 cars under there.


Most were near misses, a lot of debris, but a lot of lucky people. It was cool seeing everyone out and helping eachother out.


After the storm, this was almost every other street here.

The closest Hardess is in WI...otherwise I would so go.
I think there are a few in Indiana too.

We had some damage but nothing major. A few neighbors have tarps on their roofs. There are no very tall trees in the neighborhood. Power did go off but returned quickly because we have underground wires.

To those non-Facebooks CTFfers...

I saw this table top game this guy made for 4" figures. Kind of like old SW west end games miniatures, or other miniatures games... anyway, sounds kind of cool and thought it could be something we could get together to do. Who's game? <-- No pun intended, lol..

So far Jason and my friend Chris said they wanna do it, I was thinking set up a "plan and build" day... get some supplies and go over the playing field, nothing too complicated, something maybe with 12"x12" wood that we can take apart real easy, make the playing field simple, so we can put it together and use again in the future. Make building simple, foam rocks, use vehicles we have, etc... then if we do it again, we can move it all around and even change the theme around. Anyone else interested?

any body considering going to C6?, please email me.

I know I have not posted much lately due to my work load this year. Honestly, it has been very busy. I seem to be on a plane every week now, and the rest of the time I have is with the family. Unfortunately, my star wars family and collecting has been very sparse. I am sorry for not participating as often or as I would like too. I hope things will slow down, but if not I still am here.
