Let’s see…my recent Star Wars purchases…
Well, I’m an avid thrifter, and I recently picked up a few things for pretty cheap at Goodwill:
A couple of “Force Action” lightsabers for $2.99 each (these are the ones that can maim a child with the touch of a button…Hence, why they no longer make these…).
Talking plush Yoda (the mouth actually moves as he dispenses his wisdom, and all for the low, low price of $3.99; as a side benefit, his training will hopefully reduce my chances of maiming any children with the aforementioned “Force Action” lightsabers).
Star Wars MTT Droid Carrier Vehicle
This is actually pretty cool (for a prequel toy). When you push a button, the carrier comes to life and actually deploys the droids (Roger, Roger!). Not too bad for $4.99 (especially since this seems to retail for over $150 bucks).
31" “My Size” Darth Vader (a bit pricey for $14.99, but he looks pretty cool standing on a shelf in my gameroom).
Hasbro Hero Series Millennium Falcon (this thing is absolutely HUGE and was only $9.99).
For some sense of scale, here it is next to my copy of Star Wars: Epic Duels (also purchased for $2.99 at Goodwill):
Seems about right to me; say “Hi”, Chewbacca…“Rrraarhrrarahr”…
I also picked up a few things that weren’t from Goodwill:
- Star Wars: Risk (Black Series)
This actually plays nothing like Risk (they just used the name for brand recognition). It actually plays more like a streamlined version of Star Wars: The Queen’s Gambit (if you know your board games) and only takes around 30 minutes to finish a game.
- And I pre-ordered the new Star Wars: Rebellion game from Fantasy Flight (over 150 detailed miniatures…yes, please!):
So…like I said…a few things…
