Taking a look at ebay, was the titanium Mon Cal Cruiser (Liberty) hard to find, or rare? In the package people want $100+. I just found it at a local collectible shop, loose, for $4.99.

Yes. It and the Rogue Shadow were hard to find. I never found either one, so getting the MC for 4.99 is awesome. If they have extras, I'd be happy to pay you for one.

I figured as much. Was it in the same wave as the Outrider? I know that one is hard to find. Looking back, spending $17 on it was a good deal lol.

Looks like the others they have are only Vader’s TIE (blue, loose) and an Ewok on a speeder bike (in package).

Outrider and Neb Frigate were also somewhat difficult. But for some reason, the Mon Cal wave didn't make it to many stores. No stores around me ever had that wave.

picked up the Star Trek Strike Force NCC-1701D USS Enterprise at a flea market over the weekend. the ship is close to the scale of the Star Wars Action Fleet lines. comes with mini figures of Captain Picard and Commander Riker.

Picked up an Action Fleet Landing Craft at a local collectible shop for 15 bucks. It only came with an Imperial Pilot but couldn’t pass it up.

I was finally able to complete the set of MicroMachines orange carded single packs, with the final item that is the Imperial Star Destroyer ! So glad to have this completed set now !

Also got a bunch of Episode 1 carded sets, as well as duplicates of the TFA line.

Greetings........I was most fortunate to find Mon Cal, Neb Frig, Outrider and Malevolence at Big lots for 4.99 each......purchased Rogue from the Hasbro Store (wish I had bought more than 1 tho)......never found those anywhere else. I am still looking for the 2008 Clone Wars Wave 3 AT-ST - same wave as Fel, Mace, Hot Dog, Royal Cruiser and T-16. Have dupes for trade or will buy. Thanx!

I'm assuming those finds were many years ago, when they were released, right? I believe that's where I found my Nebulon Frigate as well.

Picked up an original Titanium X-wing from Galoob off ebay for 7 bucks for the 1,000th time because the guns broke off.

Off topic: I’m totally missing Titaniums of late... :( so many new starships / vehicles from the Clone Wars, The Resistance, Rebels, TFAs, TLJ, Solo, and the coming TROS and The Mandalorian - which need to be made!

Sooo many holes, and much unproduced...

Great find, DarkArtist! The Strike Force line has intrigued me for a long time. Especially the Klingon Bird of Prey with Kruge.

Picked up an Action Fleet TIE Fighter today at a local collectible shop, $15. I might use it for another custom, not sure yet. Couldn't pass it up at that price.

I bit the bullet and bought the red Resistance A-wing Revell kit. This was the one not released in the US. After shipping it brought it to a bit over 30 bucks, so it wasn't too bad. I believe the original price on these were around 20 bucks. It should be in around Thanksgiving.

I don't buy many of these, but I couldn't resist grabbing the Hot Wheels Razor Crest today.

Been getting on an action fleet kick again, got the Death Star and Yavin bases, ordered a few battle packs and some ships.

Looking for more if anyone has any they're parting with

Finally located a Hot Wheels Razor Crest today. I was actually at this exact wal-mart yesterday, but I had to run back into town (in a snowstorm) for a combustion fan and realized I needed laundry detergent which is always cheapest at walmart. So I checked the die cast section again and this time just happened to glance up at the overstock shelf and saw Poe's X-wing, a little rooting around and the Crest was secure in my basket. :)

picked up a titanium series Darth Vader Jedi Interceptor the other day for $2.00. missed out on this one when it was released. would have loved to see this ship get some screen time in one of the spinoff movies like Solo.

Picked up an Action Fleet TIE Fighter off ebay for $21 and change after shipping, which came in today. I needed it for a custom.

I feel like the regular TIE Fighters go up and down in price on ebay. If I need one and can get one at 20 bucks max I'll bite.

I received the Vintage Pins set by Roseart (as discussed in the MM thread), as well as the 4 first Collections from the Episode I MM line in their "First Edition" packaging (fun little variant, as the figures don't have holes in their stands), and finally, finally, the Star Trek Set XI with the HMS Bounty ! I've been after that one for a long time, and probably overpaid it, but I was tired of looking at loose sets on ebay hoping to find this rare mini, and bought a mint pack :)

Just received a bunch of MM figures packs MOC, as I'm trying to put together a complete set with one of each including packaging variants. It's a fun hunt on ebay !

Also received the 3 MM Aliens sets, that are quite nice ! The ships in particular are beautiful.

And coming with this shipment were some MOC mini-heads set, and I got a fun factory error as the Boushh mini-head is lacking the Han Solo in carbonite that is supposedly glued to the back. No sign of it in the box and it's sealed, so that's one against Galoob quality control !

Got a couple Black Series ships in a lot on ebay, mib. I was only after the Falcon, but the lot also included FO Star Destroyer, FO SF and regular Tie Fighters, Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle (grey). It was a good deal for all of them so why not.
It's interesting how much more heft the Black Series Falcon has compared to the larger Hot Wheels Falcon.

Not really an Action Fleet ship, but very, very close. And for me Action Fleet line remains very close to my heart, even these days when my collecting focus has changed dramatically, and thus I'm always looking for Action Fleet like collectibles.

Disney Starspeeder 3000 arrived las week from an EU seller, and it was at a very good price.

The ship is VERY Action Fleet like, it looks like it belongs in the Galoob universe, the silver pilot droid inside the ship is removable, and I used a bit of museum putty to keep it in place. The top can be removed to see the interior of the ship. In the front it has a screen (sticker) showing the details of the ship itself. I added a few more stickers inside the ship, especially where the pilot consoles would be - wish I had more stickers from old AF/MM ships and playsets, but this is it. Though these upgrades don't show in the pics attached as I only did them a few hours ago.

The ship has 17 seats inside, 3 rows of 5, and a front row with 2 seats, which look like it would be for the human pilot and co-pilot. The seats fit Action Fleet figures perfectly, though if you play with the ship they will fall off the chairs. Thus again I used a tiny bit of museum putty and I added 4 regular TIE Pilots (from a bunch I got from ebay last year) and two custom Rebel pilots painted black, and which now are the Imperial pilots of this transport speeder/lander/troop carrier.

If you push the yellow left button in the back all 3 left doors will open at once, and will stay open a much as you hold the button. The same on the right side. You can open all 6 doors at the same time, as the opening and closing is mechanical and not electronic.

The only weird thing is the R2 unit which is much larger than it should be, and inside you only have a bit of it remaining in the cockpit (similar to the AF yellow Naboo fighter). In fact this R2 is a button. If I would ever find a second Starspeeder 3000 like this for a very good price, I would buy it and have it customized by a friend, by painting it Imperial gray (like the Micro Turbo Tank) and have replaced the R2 top unit with a cannon of some sort. Would look fantastic, in fact this ship simply asks for customizing and having it painted gray. But will not do it, unless I get a second for dirt cheap some day.

I went to a local collectible shop this morning, they were having a warehouse sale. I picked up an Action Fleet Luke's X-wing ($10) and a TIE Interceptor (light blue version, $6), both were in the box but opened. Didn't really have a need for them but those were good prices, couldn't pass up another TIE and maybe in the future I can use them for customs or something. Also grabbed the novelization of A New Hope for $1.

That is a thing of beauty, Sergiu. I only own the slightly-larger-than-Titanium wind-up and release Starspeeder 1000 that I had picked up in 2012.

I clearly remember my first ride aboard the Starspeeder 3000, on a rainy day in Eurodisney, as it was called back in 1994, when I was 7 years old. Back then I hadn't seen a single SW film and I've never been on a simulated ride before either. When the Speeder barely made it out of the dock through that big porthole and you're suddenly confronted with the vastness of space, I clearly remember getting scared, turning to my mom and asking if we've really left Earth. And on top of that, the ship went into Lightspeed. Imagine not only seeing stars distorting in that iconic way for the first time, but being in a moving ship while it happens. It was pure magic.

In case you know if the seller had any spare ones, please PM me, Sergiu.

Thanks for the cool story. I think these Starspeeder ships can be found on ebay both in US and Europe. The prices are not too high, but the ship itself fits perfectly with Action Fleet.

I received all new sets from Armada, with both the Galactic Republic and Separatists Starters, as well as 2x each Fighter Squadrons packs. Unfortunately, both Separatist Fighter Squadrons pack were incomplete, as both were missing a Hyena Bomber mini. Asmodee's customer service does not want to help, because I'm located in France and I bought the packs from an ebay "unauthorized" retailer... so I'm stuck with incomplete Hyena squadrons now... thanks a lot Asmodee, your new customer policy stinks !

Other than that, I also managed to grab all 3 Hasbro MicroMachines Rogue One 3-packs !

Disney Star Tours Starspeeder 3000: from year 2007 (the one on the left) and 2002 (the other two). The one on the right belongs to a friend of mine, I'll send it to him later on.

Because you can't find these anywhere in Canada, except at online small shops, I bit the bullet and paid through BBTS. Here's hoping they release the next waves soon.

They will be perfect for a small scale diorama, maybe a battle scene, or base invasion.

Also they are surprisingly heavy. I know they are diecast but still surprised by the heft.
