Had the pleasure of meeting artist Banky V. Farano at last weekend's Miami Comic Con and picked up this stunning sketch card from her.



I also saw a bunch of her Galaxy 6 cards as well. Good stuff!

Just got back into SW minis and read about the sales at Target stores. I was alittle skeptical because back in the day when I played Heroclix and MageKnight, retail stores were the worst place to buy boosters because they were often already opened and/or returned. So, I took a chance and picked up some packs from three different Target stores and here's what I got:

Imperial Entanglements:
R Arica
R Moff Jerjerrod
VR Xizor

Legacy of the Force:
R Moff Nyna Calixte
R Deena Shan
R Shado Vao
VR Leia Organa Solo, Jedi Knight

Jedi Acedemy:
R Anakin Solo
R Qui-Gon Jinn, Jedi Trainer
VR Master K Kruhk
VR Naga Sadow

So, four VRs and a few good, named (as in, people I recognize) characters. Seems like the concern about opened boosters was misplaced, as I'm pretty happy with my pulls. Haven't played the minis game in years, so I'm hoping to gather up some figures before they disappear or become too hard to find.

From Target.

Imperial Entanglements:
R Thrawn
VR Darth Vader, Legacy of the Force
VR Luke Skywalker, Rebel Commander

Jedi Acedemy:
R Grand Master Yoda
R The Jedi Exile

The IE were a big deal, because they were the last three boosters in the store.

actually, i had a recent acquisition, and its SORTA autograph related. I love star wars cards and like many people i like signed star wars cards especially too lol. I recently just purchased from a guy nearly the entire set of final production slides for the 1993 portrait done by Joe Smith. He did 12 total, these are 10 of the 12 one of a kinda plates used to print the artwork that was used in both the set, on post cards, and on reprints later down. Topps sold them from the topps vault a while back each one of a kind. Guy just had them up now, took a shot and got em all. Now i want the last two (good luck eh?). These are the BEST cards to get signed, makes a KILLER set.

More $4 Star Wars minis boosters from Target:

IE Arica
IE Rieken
IE Thrawn

Literally, that makes my third copy of each figure. At least I finally got the Bacta Tank and I did get more Rebels and Imperials, so that helps.

Thanks! I just wish I could put a full set of four together. I'd like to get them framed when I do.

Part of my "Blu-ray" project. I am awaiting an ESB piece from Mr. Russell Walks, which will replace the extra ROTJ in the bottom middle. At that point, it will spell out "Blu ray"

Well, I finally put a complete set together! Star Wars Galaxy 6 #73 Bounty Aquired complete set of printing plates. What's even better it's one of my favorite pieces of Star Wars art. Now I just have to decide how to frame them. Debating between getting the print and putting the plates around it. Or the plates and get an autographed base card together. Ideas??

WOW that is ELITE! You so rarely see a completed Printing plate set! GREAT JOB! Yeah, frame that up for sure...any thought to biting the bullet and contacting the artist to see if the original is for sale?

The original is a full size painting that if Lucas doesn't already own I'm sure it'd cost a ton. I have the canvas wrap the was available through ACME Direct.

Recent Pick Up & Pulls. Snagged the Ki-Adi Mundi by D. Douglass off eBay because I didn't have a Skethc by that Artist. The Rise Of The Bounty Hunter Sketches are from a case I got a pretty good deal on. I've only opened 3 boxes so far, but the Proctor Cad Bane, Yoda by Jerry Gaylord & Ki-Adi Mundi by Shea Standefer have me off to a pretty good start.

I got an awesome card for Christmas from a friend, I never thought I would own one. Dont know if one has been posted here before, so here's mine. Limited to 300. The scan doesnt do it justice.

That's an awesome Ewok card Driftwood83! I have one as well. Shame there will probably never be any more SW costume cards made.
