These ARE the droids I was looking for!

So even though I hadn't posted these little guys as eBay wins, that's where I got these them. Oddly enough eBay was not the first time I encountered them. I recall seeing them at Target during the holidays and thought they were pretty cool because the last I had a radio controlled astromech unit was back in the 80's and R2-D2 was easily 4 times bigger than these guys. Either way, I believe I passed on because I was broke or just didn't want to get back into Star Wars at the moment. Not sure if it's a good or bad thing but I have two out of the four, so I'm happy. Especially since they ALMOST got sent back to the person I got these from. The people at my local post office are weird, don't ask. I just thanks the gods for delivery confirmation with tracking numbers.

So after a quick jaunt to the post office, I quickly opened these guys one by one with the giddiness of a child on Christmas morning and I have to say, they ROCK! They're the same scale as regular Star Wars figures but are slightly taller than any astromech because of their wheels. Well painted and come with a mini lightsaber shaped remote control. I would definitely recommend these droids. Very cool :D

Star Wars Junkie

So here the latest batch of wins. As you can see I went kinda crazy on the Star Wars figures. But hey, this blog isn't called Confessions of a Plastic junkie for nothing! You have to admit the selection is rather interesting, mostly Jedi and aliens. Normally I'm not that in to Jedi but The Clone Wars series has passed the Jedi bug to me. It doesn't help that Clone Wars also featured unique Jedi like Foul Moudama and Robb Coron, which I picked up. That now Ben Kenobi is vastly superior to the Power of the Jedi I currently own. Gotta work on upgrading that muscle bound Lando...

I also want to build dioramas of Jabba's Palace and the cantina at  Mos Eisley, hence the aliens. Anyone else I just feel is cool enough to get, like Porkins or Kyle Katarn (Dark Forces!).

Biggs Porkins
CZ-4 Monk
Wampa Lak
Kyle Katarn Obi-Wan Kenobi
Oola Greedo
Jawa Rodian Band
T-1 Coron
Amanaman Omega Squad
Foul Kota
Yaddle More to come as I've been making trips to Toys R Us! :P
