    Cleaning house today and I forgot I even had this Star Wars Battle Pack still.

    Definitely one of the nicer early army packs and from the Clone Wars cartoon. Now the card board cut out gunner ship in that design did eventually become a real vehicle set. I'm now compelled to hunt one of these toy vehicles down! :)

    Also cleaning house sucks!:roll:

    I still can't get over the kick of there being Otto Preminger toys in the world now:

    I've seen a little Lego rendition out there, too, and a genuinely awful looking 'realistic' bust.

    Shortly after I did some research and your right! But you can get him for $30 normal instead of that price.

    Cause it's G1 nostalgia. Ppl are willing to pay big money even for reissues. Remember the second G1 reissues back in the early 2000's? Those even go for quite a pretty penny.

    ya, i got that SDCC soudwave, in the secondary market, i think it was 70$. Worth it though. I dont see HotRod as a Legendary toy. The engeneering prolly has somthing to do with it all too

    Oh dude that's Atlas Omega by Ilu Ilu. You can find the thread here. Definitely one of my favourite makers, but prices are a little crazy on the newer stuff. That guy is maybe 4" tall, retailed for around $700.

    $700? Are you sure or did you accidently put two zeros instead of one after 7? ;)

    I love Ilu Ilu btw but I’d somehow missed that robot guy. Looks like a great piece.

    I'm being dead serious about the price, haha! I went for it because I hope to one day have all the sculpts together, but I couldn't rightly recommend it to anyone else.

    I understand. I like it a lot but that’s a pretty hefty price tag for a 4” figure. :)

    I've been resuscitating my little car collecting hobby lately. Even got some cool clear carry cases to organize stuff.
    Had this Baja Breaker when I was a wee child; I was glad to score this super clean version recently:

    Love this groovy van, Hot Wheels '78:

    And who doesn't love a fancy Batmobile?

    Okay, fair enough. That one is pretty stellar. But I confess a deep love for this version as well,



    And, of course, that's in a very close tie with this classic,


    (not to mention the corresponding Batwing. ;) )

    But far be it from me to make suggestions here which might be taken as encouraging anyone's collection behaviour. :oops:

    It only took me almost 2 hours worth of sitting down and loosing blood flow in my legs to get it done. Hooray for noodle legs!!!

    I think I'd have to choose Baja Breaker. That little circular window at the back is killing me!
