Popped open my box of SW figures. One of my R2's that has light/sound has a dead battery in it. I should probably take the battery out, right?

Got them out. It was the mud covered Dagobah R2, I think from the Saga line. There were 3 other electronic R2s in the box ATOC and whatever the other two are. (Not sure why I bought all of them.) Those 3 still work.

You bought them because they were R2 & thus fucking amazing, each & every one. ;)

EDITED: Except for that piece of shit 6" black series version. That one sucks.

Is the 6" Kanan Jarus supposed to be rare? I see people on FB groups talking about it like it's the new Artoo w/ holographic Leia. But the local WM, usually a scalper haven, has had at least four for over a week.

I don't want to ask on any of these groups or a collecting site, because I don't want to be slammed with requests to pick them up for strangers. (If he is indeed rare and any of you want him, that's different.)

New price for 3.75" Black Series up here........ $17.96. For one figure. Fuck that shit. Old Luke & Resistance Rey, if they show up, will be the only 2 figures I'd purchase at this price point.

It has been about 8 years since I stopped collecting. I don't regret it at all.

I saw some new Titanium figures. It takes pretty big balls to bring back a line like that. I don't remember it being very popular the first time around.

Holy shit. Had it been almost a year since anyone posted in here??

Toys are too fucking expensive. What used to be an enjoyable hobby turned into a meth addiction.

Sorry to break the streak of silence on the Star Wars toys. It is kind of crazy that it has been that long considering that it is what brought us all together in the first place. Something something over Star Wars completely...

Here is what I don't understand about some toys. Walmart has their own line of military figures that take up a few rows of pegs. Toys R Us has almost an entire aisle dedicated to their military figure line. Yet GI Joe isn't at retail anymore.

I started collecting the 6" figures when they dropped to $10 in September. They're cool.

Those Titaniums are absolute shit that make the 1995 figures look like fucking high end statues.

the Elite series? i have a bunch of them, but none of the face characters, only masked ones. vader, kylo ren, boba fett, stormtrooper (classic and first order varieties), and phasma. i think those look really good. i got my daughter the rey one, and was disappointed by the face sculpt.

Nah, The Black Series. A few missteps, but overall pretty solid.

I kept waiting to find one character that could be my only one if I never bought another. Preferably a masked character. Unfortunately, those tend to be the rare ones. I finally found FN-2187, Jango, and the first decent Phasma I ever saw, and they were ten bucks. I grabbed them, along with Han since I figured I could trade him. Liked them, kept Han, and have gotten a lot more since.

I'm not worried about getting the ones I missed unless I find bargains. Even uber-pegwarmers Greedo and Slave Leia are pricey on the secondary market.

I'm annoyed that i started late also.
Some of those early peg warmers would be great now.
