Gumbo, I'd love to see your Luke Stormy blaster. I bought the the Luke Stormy as a kid (carded) and was extremely good about not losing weapons. But it of course was mixed with all my guns. I've tried to find this "pure black" blaster out of like the 50 Stormtrooper blasters I have to no success. Would love to see somebody else's.Great scores! Are all of the weapons original? I only ask so if you know they are repro you can keep track of which are not original vintage if you are looking to eventually obtain all authentic weapons/ accessories. It took me a while to complete my last 17 run on the basis of the imperial gunner/a- wing gun and the Luke storm trooper helmet. Thanks for sharing!
Agreed. I'd understand an R2 repack... I imagine that they'd be coming out with a 3P0 in the near future, so that would be a nice companion repack. Army builders make the most sense though, like your Troopers, Clones, etc. With the box only containing 4 figures at a time, it doesn't have to always be a 4 figure wave. They could easily make it a 3 fig wave and just have 2 of the army builder packed in; in this case, the TIE Pilot. I don't know whay Hasbro makes these decisions. If they had an ear to the boards and the collectors forums, they'd know that army builders are the way to go with repacks and such.I cannot believe they packed forward freaking obi wan kenobi. Seriously that guy is almost as bad a peg warmer as greedo. They should have repacked r2d2, or boba fett or ANYTHING but obi wan.
If anyone gets a table, let me know what number you are or what name you'll go by. I'll be sure to seek ya out and intro myself if I go this weekend.I just heard back from him, he echoes what you said so it will be happening!
They have tables too so I think I will get one...
When I was walking in, the guy running the show pointed to a guy with a beard and said he was here from the Rebelscum boards. I didn't go over and say hey... he was talking to another guy at the first table. Was that you and Gumbo? Probably didn't see me, but I was in a light red t-shirt and jeans. How's that for vague... I know. Lol. Anyway. Definitely looking for better shows that are more professional. Lmk what ya find out about the upcoming event. ��The best part for me was meeting up with gumbo and talking Vintage kenner.
I wish I would have come over and intro'd myself. It would have been nice to meet some fellow scummers here in Houston.
Well... I saw an army of 6" Proto Bobas at the Walgreens on Fry near 10, by the HEB, and there were armies of Obi's, Bespin Lukes and Hans on display at the Walmart across the street from there. I'm certain that I won't find a TIE Fighter Pilot in the wild. Though I have them (thanks to a friend in Chicago), I still haven't seen Boba, a Clone Trooper, or a Stormtrooper in the wild. Army builders are hard to come by in this market for some reason.
Thanks for the heads up on this 12backvader- this show is on tomorrow in the Willowbrook area and it starts at 10am. Spoke to the coordinator and there are approx. 30 tables of vendors I don't know how many different dealers are there but that is a lot more of a pulse than that one a couple of weeks ago.Toys, Collectibles, Novelties, Unique Gifts, Events,
this is the next show I have flyers for coming up. I think they gave me a flyer at the stx show. I will ask around and see if I can hear if it's good or not. I've never been to one of their shows.
