Anyone else snag one of these??? I just got mine yesterday. And I gotta say, as cheap as the hasblow figures are, this guy rocks.:rock

Definitely a must own for anyone who considers themselves a collector.

I bought one of the first ones that showed up on Ebay. I thought $60 was bad after I bought it, but I've seen the recent auctions going for more than that. This is one case where buyer's remorse didn't last long.

I just snagged two more from SWS.com myself. And I know exactly why Gaz.... :lol :yay :naughty

P.S. Thanks to both One of Nine and Gazmog for the heads up on that :rock

You just made my week!:bow

I was just looking at them on ebay and also the Target Exclusive as well. I'd like to get both of those and the regular to have my Vader collection :)

Man, thats a much sweeter price than ebay. It will allow me to ge the Target version if they dont have it on this site.

Gazmog
04-25-2005, 11:05 AM
No probs, Mannie. :)

I bought one for my collection, and one to give to one of you fine fellows. :wave

I'm looking around right now hope they go enough so I can search for a couple other things before I buy. I'd much rather pay $20 bucks than three times that on ebay.

My order is in. Went ahead and also got the Vader Basic Hasbro figure while I was at it.

Ebay is already flooded with the things though.

One may be able to pick one up there as cheap or cheaper given a little bit of time.

JS :dunno

Yeah, they have a ton but they are all way way exspensive right now. Figure I'll go the safer route for sure and get it from the SWS. Now, I will have to get the Target Exclusive on Ebay though.

jlcmsu
04-25-2005, 12:03 PM
Target Exclusive Lava Vader is in the Bag. May buy the TRU Yoda Exclusive.

Gazmog
04-25-2005, 12:25 PM
Bought the one figure worth getting. Now my sights are homing in on the code 3 poster.

Oxbeard
04-25-2005, 12:25 PM
You know me. Too late on this one again:bang :bang :bang :bang

I was holding out hoping they would have extra on the site and then I miss it while I'm at work. If anyone has picked up and extra and interested in selling let me know. Otherwise, eBay here I come.

jlcmsu
04-25-2005, 01:02 PM
Man, that didn't take long to sell out now did it.

Oxbeard
04-25-2005, 01:04 PM
I have to admit Gaz, I wasn't very impressed with Code 3's other sculpted posters. But the CIII exclusive really did catch my eye. I think it is the best of the bunch, not surprised it sold out so quick.

You and me both!

Word travels fast. I was hoping they'd last longer so collectors could get them at a decent price than from a scalper on eBay.

Viking28
04-25-2005, 01:10 PM
Did you see some of those auctions entire boxes of the figure!

"Yea I'll take 5 boxes of the Vader figure.Yea there for my kids at home."

Gazmog
04-25-2005, 01:21 PM
Ox, to be honest I don't mind the posters for ANH and Jedi, it's just the ESB 'Gone With The Wind' one I can't stand. :x :puke

I really need to slow down on my spending after getting this one. I have pretty much established a whole GG collection in a VERY SHORT space of time...and now I am feeling the pinch. :rolleyes :D

jlcmsu
04-25-2005, 01:31 PM
Yup, I'm probably gonna buy the TRU Yoda so that will cost me about $15-$16 bucks making today over $100 bucks in Figures. I'll stop for a while now that I basically have all I want.

Gazmog

The Lava Figure is pretty neat very shiny looking based on the pics on ebay.

I missed them on the SWS.com site :bang

I was coming to post about it. I managed to just get in under the wire with the Vader C3 fig from SWS ~ but it was like the SS site on a release day. Just pulling teeth and hair out

Mannie The Dragon

everyone keep your eyes open for the next Target Exclusive figure. It's a "Super Poseable Clone Trooper." Officially, the street date isn't supposed to be until the 8th of next month.... but that doesn't stop some of those idiots who toss it up on eBay and make a killing:

"Super Rare, not in stores until May 8th!!!: Buy it Now for $50 to make sure you don't have to stand in line!!!" (and pay $37.00 less :lol )

Some of those sellers crack me up.

But yeah, keep your eyes open for it.

Oxbeard
04-25-2005, 04:25 PM
Yeah, this Clone Trooper exclusive has already been showing up on some shelves. Along with the 5 pack of collector cases for the carded figures.

Hadn't seen any here in the southeast, but have heard reports from a little further north of these being found over the past couple of days.

I saw some selling this on ebay already as well. Not really interested in it myself but I did want the Vader.

Hmm, missed the SWS offer, but I did get one via eBay. I love how Jones voiced sayings specifically for this figure. :lol :banana

Mine arrived from StarWarsShop.com this morning, and from all accounts they're great.

Mine is due in Saturday as well as the Lava Vader I bought from Ebay.

I don't suppose that any of you kind souls that I have maybe helped out in the past or just heard what a great guy I am would like to sell me one of your extra Vader Poster Scuplts you ordered? Looking to get one without being extorted on Ebay. I missed mine by a matter of minutes.

Jesse I only bought one. I would love to help ya out if I could.

bigdaddyrob
04-28-2005, 01:09 PM
Sorry JW, same here. Only got one b/c I am really trying to avoid buying anymore figures

But someone help this guy out, great collector and has hooked up many on the boards!

Oxbeard
04-28-2005, 02:39 PM
Jesse, are you talking about the Hasbro CIII exclusive figure or the Code3 CIII exclusive poster sculpt? We've gotten OT a little bit and been talking about both so I wasn't sure.

Regardless, I've had to resort to eBay for both myself. Received my Code3 exclusive ESB poster sculpt today and it looks awesome. Appears to be a smaller scale than the regular versions coming out, but I must admit I am very tempted no to pick up the others. This thing rocks :banana

RichardW
04-28-2005, 02:48 PM
I bought one of the first poster sculpts off eBay for $60 last week. I received an email today saying they just now shipped it. :bang The anticipation is killing me.

Oxbeard
04-28-2005, 02:51 PM
I will be well worth the wait. This thing is awesome!!!

jesseawilson
04-28-2005, 03:02 PM
I was referring to the Poster sculpt they look absolutely brilliant!

Today brought more SW items for me. My C-III Vader and Basic Vader Figures came today a day early. The C-III Vader is sweet with the sayings that it has but my fave is just the infamous breathing. The Basic Vader is also really sweet and when my Target Lava Vader comes tomorrow it should make a nice little trio of Vaders.

Viking28
04-29-2005, 01:14 PM
Got my CIII vader today!!! Awesome!:banana

Sir Tristram
04-29-2005, 01:20 PM
Man, mine better come tomorrow! They charged me right away and sent the tracking...I thought it was going to be here by now!
I can't wait to hear JEJ's voice!!!

jlcmsu
04-29-2005, 01:34 PM
Its pretty awesome Sir T. You will enjoy it and its will be worth the wait.

Sir Tristram
04-29-2005, 01:45 PM
Yea, I am psyched to see it!
I am just so glad they offered it on Monday! I was so bummed that I had to work and could not get to C3!

jlcmsu
04-29-2005, 02:07 PM
Yeah, I was glad they had it on their site so I didn't have to pay ebay prices since I couldn't afford to go to C-III.

LOTR Fan
04-29-2005, 03:06 PM
I did pay eBay prices! :bang :bang

jlcmsu
04-29-2005, 03:16 PM
That sucks Matt. Its pretty sweet and I wouldn't be upset to pay that for this awesome figure.

Mannie The Dragon
04-29-2005, 11:11 PM
I paid eBay prices for one. But considering I ended up with 3 for less than $100, I'm completely satisfied. And based on how limited, and amazing this figure is, I'm sure the price won't go anywhere but up from here.

LOTR Fan
04-29-2005, 11:16 PM
That is a good deal Mannie, I think I may try to grab just one more! :p

Well, I got my Lava Vader today pretty cool figure I like how the lava is reflecting off him. Its still not as neat as C-III Vader but its pretty cool. Last night I won the Toys R Us Holographic yoda as well as I bought a regular Yoda and a General Grievous from Wal-Mart.
