SO...anyone else here just to appreciate just how good we had it in 2007? Because 30th Anniversary Collection was one of a kind.
I'm still living like it's 2007. I've picked up TAC figures in the past few days. So bummed I missed out of the golden age of the line...

I pretty much have to resort to eBay for this stuff. I've been to a few shops around the country where it was like stepping back in time, but even the local comic shops around my area don't really keep SW figures.

I loathe eBay, so I usually stick to local collectors' shows and Kijiji and such. I've got a TAC Anchorhead Biggs that I'm picking up some time this week along with a few other figs. That's one I found on Kijiji.

VTAC or VTSC?

Can anyone explain why Rebelscum categorises VTSC wave 2 as VTAC? I appreciate that the wave was released in 2007 alongside the TAC line, but the branding on the packaging makes it clear that it's part of the TSC line.

I have a lot of TAC items I just posted (or will be soon posting) to eBay. Large TRU exclusive Y-Wing, Tie Bombers, and about 7-8 NIB figures already listed. I have about 20 more figures to post over the next week. Let me know if you are looking for something specific. I have a lot stuff including but not limited to the following (all new in box): lots of troopers and clone commanders, Darth Malak, Bly variant in wrong packaging, Faie, Cody, Uatpau Shadow, 501st Legion, Hoth Trooper, Luke Starkiller, Concept Chewbacca, Concept Vader, Lava. Darth Vader exclusive from Target, Celebration 3 Talking Vader, Imperial Trooper, Coin figures, Gree, McQuarrie. Search 'scottb4713' in eBay to see what's up for auction currently. I have more to sell that hasn't yet been put on eBay. Thanks,

It's probably a lost cause, but it would be cool of they reissued some of the TAC figures. Though i wonder if it would be better to put them in themed Battle Packs?
Revan, Malak, HK. Rahm Kota, Starkiller, ???

I got the Concept Chewie in the mail today along with some other figures.

I really love the Concept Chewie figure. It's huge!

And it weighs twice as much as the warrior Gungan figure(with all accessories for both included in their weights).

I was thinking, the Concept Chewie must have twice as much mass(plastic) as the Gungan but cost less when it released(Concept Chewie=$6.99 in 2007/Gungan warrior TVC=$9.99 in 2012). So inflation must have been why. But the Chewie figure is still twice as much plastic. Like you could have two figures for the same price either way.

These figures have close to the same POA. Concept Chewie's only difference in POA is that he has swivel shoulders instead of ball hinged.

I just thought it was neat/odd that the Concept Chewie is twice as massive as the Gungan warrior Vintage figure.

I plan to use the Concept Chewie to make a Lasat(most likely Zeb). I just hate that I'll have to do something about the fur and the lower legs to make it accurate.

I also like the idea of using the Concept Chewie body to make a Snoova from SOTE. The head off the POTF2 Snoova figure is probably too small, but I'm going to look at trying that once I get a second Concept Chewie body. :{D

I wouldn't worry about the pieces, they're honestly a bit crappy. And will definitely be out of date when Hasbro reservists them. Hopefully.

Yeah, the figures were the most important part since neither of them could easily be customized without a lot of sculpting, which I'm no good at

Dropped by a local thrift store today and picked up a few odds and ends. Mostly custom fodder but there was an Infinities white and blue Jedi Leia in there and a Republic comic 2-pack Assassin Droid. Nothing crazy rare, but for 7 bucks for them and 2 junkers I can't complain.

Hey, I don't collect this line but have a figure from my teenage collecting years. It's Vader with a gold coin, but I can't find one with the same card art. Anyone know anything about this figure?

It appears to be an Ultimate Galactic Hunt figure, but with a variant or Foreign card art.

I just recently picked up the Toys R Us Exclusive of Obi Wan’s Jedi starfighyer with the hyperspace ring. What a beautiful looking ship. I purchased a custom stand for it, and it just looks so nice on display. The prequels really had some great designs for the spaceships. Does anyone else have this exclusive?

In the process of doing my Nerd Cave and pulled this line out for display. Man, I had forgotten how much AWESOME was in the 2007/2008 TAC/Saga Legends line! The concept figures, the crap tons of army builder variant troopers, clones, pit droids, battle droids etc, the realistic versions of the first Clone Wars shorts series, The Force Unleashed figures, Holiday Special Boba Fett, the ENORMOUS Hermi Odle, all of the figure "firsts," Old Republic stuff, lots of cool droids, and last but certainly not least, all of the Fan's Choice figures. Just wow! This line is imho the pinnacle of Star Wars figure greatness. I'm glad I pulled them out and put them on display!!

Hasbro peaked with TAC...no question. I’ve sold so many 3.75” to fund 1/6 scale, but not TAC...no way! Love the McQ. Concept line.

Hi,

I hope I'm in the right place, I have my full set of Ralph Mcquarrie figures from the 30th Anniversary Collection, but only the convention ones come with a protective case, does anyone knows which size (number) of Protech Star Case is the right one for them?
I want to get one that looks almost the same as the ones from the conventions.

Thanks
