I am really liking that GG Boba Fett mini bust. I am tempted to get the lowest membership level just to be able to buy it when it becomes available.

In AOTC we saw Jango Fett without a helmet and in some cases without armor. Do you think Boba Fett ever did the same thing? As a kid I always pictured Boba Fett constantly in armor. I've read stories where Boba Fett was never seen without his armor or helmet on. I was just wondering because I have created my Boba Fett inspired motorcycle helmet and I'm doing the same with a jacket, that will have similar markings and attributes of Boba Fett's armor ensemble, but will in no way be meant to look like a jacket version of Boba Fett's armor. It just made me wonder if maybe Boba Fett had other outfits that carried on the same look, so that people knew it was Boba Fett, but wasn't his signature apparel. Much like Batman.

I'm not sure what's in Fett's closet, I'm willing to bet it's not as big as Landos.

Dammit! I've been trying to get these all week and from what I can tell they're part of a major toy reset. The employees can't even find them. Had multiple people checking multiple locations for them and can't find them.


Germann & Gilbert Target- No Gamorrean Guards. I did pick up a Jakk's FO Stormtrooper and a Praetorian Guard for $5.98 each.

I'm not super happy with the Boba Fett belt pouches I bought off eBay years ago for Bobber Fett. So I'm giving it a shot at making my own and something more accurate. Here's my first prototype pouch. Except for the stitching and lack of weathering at the moment, they're actually pretty close. They're fully functional and will keep the rigid shape as they have three pieces of Sintra inside. The lid is secured with Velcro and works very well. I really didn't want to create pouches that weren't functional. They weren't terribly difficult. The downside is that I need eight of them total.

The parts consist of:

  • Leather remnants from Hobby Lobby
  • a fairly cheap leather belt from Walmart (I will probably need 3-4 total)
  • Insta-Cure Glue and Insta-Set spray
  • Velcro
  • 1/8" Sintra (I used black and glad I did)

I know where I'm stopping after work tomorrow! Did they have a bunch?
I've noticed a handful of old cars on the new solo cards but not the new cars.
Thanks!

The PGM Boba Fett Holiday bust is available for pre-order.

$120
Due 4th Quarter

You must order by August 10th. I just ordered mine.


Thanks for posting that! Just ordered the Silver Membership, once it clears tomorrow I will be ordering the bust.
They don't give you a lot of time to order, do they? Less than 2 weeks seems short to me.

I didn't have any luck at the Walmart at Gilbert and Germane south of the 202 but I did find some at Greenfield just south of the 60!

Thanks for looking out.

Huge thanks to Slave_1 for helping me acquire the Gam Guard. I'm hoping to pick up a few more in the near future.

I saw the Vandor 1 playset with Chewbacca at Red Mountain Target yesterday. I won't be picking up the set but I would like to get hold of Chewbacca.

Please keep me in mind about Gamorreans. I haven't picked one up yet. I kept getting the whole "reset" story reported about at JTA. And just like they mentioned, every Target in the area now shows 0 in stock. I would like to get two at some point.

I don't know if anyone is interested in the Funko Vynl Darth Vader and Stormtrooper set but it is 30% off for the next four hours at Hottopic.com; normal price is $18.90 and the discount takes it to $13.23; This set was out of stock this morning but back in stock when I visited the site tonight.

I'm glad I bought the POP! Cad Bane in store because the one I ordered hasn't arrived yet, but I did get a notice that it has finally shipped.

I didn't check the forum before going to bed and now it's only 20% off. Not sure I want to get roped into this line though. I do like it, but I seriously can't do another line of Star Wars toys. The only reason I'm doing the new Mighty Muggs is because I have picked them all up at a clearance price. I may do a select few of the Vynl figures.

I will be all over this set. I see many in my future.

I like the Trooper set. Hopefully it will actually show up at Target when it's supposed to.

I ended up buying the Vynl Vader and Stormtrooper due to the discount plus I used some of my rewards to get even more savings. I'm only going to buy SW Vynls that interest me--I have no interest in the Han/Lando, Rey/Kylo sets and just minor interest in the Jabba and Salacious set.
