SW Vintage find

Post by fuzzcat on Wed Nov 30, 2011 9:09 am

Hey guys,

Was wandering through Big W at Chermside today, saw some new SW Vintage figs on the pegs - there was a Bastilla Shan, Hoth Rebel, Rebel Fleet Trooper, 'Revenge of the Jedi'-carded Ackbar, Logray and B-Wing Pilot. Didn't grab any as money is non-existant at the moment.

Then wandered over to David Jones, and they had the Rebel Commando, Nikto Jedi and Weequay Vintage figs. Bummer.

Then stuck my nose in at Target and saw they had a Bom Vindum figure amidst all the clones and $-LOM figures.

So they're out there!

I saw Ackbar last night at my local. I've actually seen him a few times now at retail......doesn't seem like there's much love for the Mon Wink

My local has 2 3+ year old Padme figures, and NOTHING else. Sad

Admiral Ackbar stinking up the pegs is so 1985.

Yeah, I guess with "It's a trap!" being a fairly mainstream meme these days, Ol' Acky isn't as obscure a character as he used to be... Sad

Was out and about today and found at Target Strathpine the latest Vintage figures from the Blu-Ray deleted scenes - Mon Cal Pilot, Colonel Cracken, Luke from lightsabre construction scene and Leia and Lando from the sandstorm. $16.00 each, grabbed Mon Cal and Cracken.
Even more exciting, found the 'Discover the Force' Movie Heroes collection at Big W Strathpine - they come with 3D glasses attached to the card to look at some cool 3D images on the back. There are some new figures for this collection (not just the same old repacks) like Mawhonic and a Naboo Pilot. I only saw Yoda, a new Aurra Sing and new Gungan Warrior (which I grabbed), but they were only $9.83 each!

Checked out Big W at North Lakes, grabbed a Naboo Pilot and G8-R3 (one of the astromechs on the Naboo Royal Ship), no sign of mawhonic - I'm thinking he's going to be the one that eludes me for a while.....
