Recently received Sebulba and the Gungan Warrior moc. They were openers for me, and you know those plastic wrapped metal ties they used to use on everything back then? Holy crap did those things degrade and get sticky.
i just got a loose aurra sing i think shes from potj i saw pics of her on card.
her rifle is so bendy she can barely old it. were talking near spaghetti quality here.
her pistol fits nicely in her hand and holster. so at least theres that.
but whats up with her arms? they move up nd down duck style and they move backwards but refuse to go forward.
That Amanaman doesn't disappoint. He's kind of like the Yautja of the SW universe with those eerie but awesome accessories. I have him displayed next to Ephant Mon just like that behind the scenes 'pack up night party' from the SW to Jedi documentary.
This is one that I don't have, but actually wish I did. I ddn't know the gun and the binocs attach to the backpack. I think the casemates were Vader, Luke, and Han. I think the breakdown was 4x Vader, 4x Han, 3x Luke, and 1x Sandtrooper. Even back then Hasbro was stingy on the troopers.
I finally got myself a complete POTJ Bo Shek for my Cantina Diorama. I now have a spare blaster for him so that'll be going on eBay. I did have the POTJ Ep 1 Tusken Raider which I really liked, but it got eaten by my ex-girlfriend's dog! To add insult to injury it also peed over my Ace of Spades rug.
Recently acquired the POTJ Plo Koon, a figure I always wanted but never had high on the priority list -- I was always curious about the yellow lightsaber and a sculpted robe for this character, having first experienced this character in Jedi Power Battles before the movies or CW show, and I find the TPM force files kind of interesting. Plo feels like a different Jedi than who he becomes, but the headsculpt might be my favorite he's had, and the swivel elbows aren't as impressive as the TLC figure's ball joints, but for a figure of this era they seem very well placed.
Admittedly not a figure I'd recommend to any other collector unless they were a fan of the character or prequel Jedi in general.
I completely passed over PotJ when it was out in stores. I had started in with PotF2 when itfirst hit but quickly traded it all away for Transformers (I just couldn't get into the sculpt styles). It wasn't until about 2005 that I started to pick up the odd Star Wars figure and look back at what I missed. As years went on I would start to see large lots (mostly in Japan) getting put up and finding some were selling for really low prices...and of course some going crazy high. After years of just watching and never participating I finally threw in some bids on a few auctions earlier this month.
I got a mix of PotJ and PotF2 in 2 auction lot wins. The auction photos were not great. Piles of figures where you can see what's on top but mysteries below. I mainly targeted these 2 auctions beacuse they had Rebel Fleet Troopers. I tried for 5 auctions in total. One lost auction had 6-7 R4-M9 astromechs and a few K-3PO droids which I kinda wanted. Another had 5 or 6 Imperial Officers. The last had a TIE-Bomber which I always wanted, as well as I believe a few more Rebel Fleet Troopers. What I did get in my 2 wins is a lot of Rebel Fleet Troopers, 22 in total. That alone makes it a huge win, much easier than buying a bunch of singles on Ebay from multiple sellers. I also got 9 Death Star Droids, 3 AT-ST Drivers, some Cantina aliens (Greedo-Hammerhead-Snaggletooth-Lak Sivrak), and then crazy stuff like 9 BoSheks, 7 Palpatines, 9 General Leia Organa, 9 TPM Jedi Robes Kenobi. Also some R2's, Chewbacca's, Carbonite Hans and Hoth Lukes. I got 103 figures in total.
