Despite four trips to California in less than a year, I could never find the Rebels Vader, which is why I was pretty happy to see this frowning face when I opened a birthday gift from Reverend Strone.

This Vader now stands next to the Kenner Vader from my childhood, something that makes me incredibly happy, each and every time I look at the two.

(Thanks, Dan!)

:D It was your due. I owe you many times over, my friend. He's a beautiful looking figure. It would have been so wrong for you not to have one.

Finally had to bite the bullet (Farmers had a sale) & buy the new Black Series mini helmets. Here they are with my current collection.

Wow, the two lines work very well together!

Question about the Camo Biker Scout - is that an official release or custom repaint?

Official release - I don't have the skill to do a paint job that well.

They were sold in blind boxes, but the person who sold them too me was good enough to open them before I purchased. It made it a bit easier to get the whole set (of that wave). The Kashyyyk scout wasn't mentioned on any of the boxes, more of a nice surprise.

Thanks. :) I hadn't heard they were doing that one so it was a surprise. It's a perplexing repaint, though, not being canonical. The Kashyyyk trooper helmets from ROTS were only superficially similar, but not literally Biker Scouts repainted, which is why I was surprised to see it.

That all said, you have me really interested in these TOMY helmets, now! :D They look great.

For clarity: the back two rows are not new. I bought them around 2002 / 2003. I don't know how available they are now.

It's been a good week for getting SW stuff.

From the first time I saw these last year they were on my want / must have list. Finally got the pennies together :)
Pic heavy, sorry.

The boxes are beautiful themselves.

Even the inside of the box is subtly good.

Fantastic looking figures.

Loads of weapons for the Fett

Image

And a few for the Stormtrooper

Image

The guns have movable flintlocks, and the swords can be sheathed.

Image

I think these may be my favourite collectibles.
