In our worry over the fire going out on 3.75″ collecting Paul discussed earlier, there is a spark that will light the fire that may inspire you once again. It definitely gives me some hope for upcoming figures to come!! Click through for the full video… Full Story
I found this image floating on Facebook. It was sourced from another group entirely so as of yet I don’t have the original source for this image. As a big fan of the Star Wars Nerf line (not added to ships…) I think this is a great set. If you look a little closer you may find something else of interest to TVC collectors. A little more to the left… a little more…
Keep checking your local Walmart clearance aisle’s folks. I found the entire wave (bought the Hoth trooper) for $11. This is the first time I had seen the full wave at any Walmart in my area. I’ve seen other reports of people finding them for even less than $11 (no pics, sorry).
To be honest, Battle Packs were hit or miss. Ones like the Mandalorian Warrior pack (please send more Mandos) were much more popular than ones like the Battle of Geonosis.

One of the parts of the movie that may be difficult to get a good long look at the background details is Dryden Voss’ study.

Also interesting to note are the references to Legends material. Click through for the full video!

I’ve been a fan of holeintheground productions’ work for quite some time. Most recently they have put a gorgeous 3.75″ scale Emperor’s throne up for sale. Thanks to Scott M. for pointing us in their direction. And we agree… A new Emperor who can sit in this throne would be wonderful!! Do you have any pieces from them in your dioramas? Let us know in the comments!
Solo was a great film. It was a fun movie to watch. One thing that it did very well was the dense and diverse population of each planet and cantina visited throughout the story.

Well, this is new… I stumbled upon this image on Facebook in a great group of collectors who follow the Toy Run podcast, and was immediately disheartened. Has this happened in any of your local Walmarts? If you’ve ever had to buy spray paint at Walmart you know how hard it can be to find the guy with the keys. And we thought collecting was hard enough! Has this happened in any of your local Walmarts? Credit goes out to Criz. B for the image.
