The Year of Joe - July

Wow! Almost forgot that I need to post my Joe acquisitions at the end of each month. I mostly purchased Series 1 vehicles to complete the Series 1 collection. That included the HAL, JUMP, and VAMP with Clutch, along with a Whirlwind. Purchased all of these at Eternia Dreams and Toys in Taneytown, Maryland.

Star Wars Black Series Gamestop Heavy Battle Droid

Wasn't expecting this when I walked in but saw this guy. Not sure how he is supposed to hold all his weapons and I think parts are missing for the cannon unless I am that clueless.

Star Wars Black Series - The Attack of the Clones Wave

This was a nice set of Black Series figures, and some overdue attention to Attack of the Clones. We have AOTC Anakin, Obi-Wan, Plo Koon, Kit Fisto, and Geonosian Battle Droid. The case also has Count Dooku as a repack. The pack has doubles of Anakin and Plo Koon. An extra Battle Droid was replaced by Dooku. Not sure why. You can always use more Battle Droids, even though they are a pain in the ass to stand up.

Star Wars Black Series Snowspeeder - Oh WOW!

First of all, I haven't posted in a bit because my personal laptop crashed and I didn't want to be doing it on my work laptop. Second, along with that crashed laptop went all my photos from April through July. I typically back everything up at the end of the quarter, but forgot to. And I delete my photos from my phone after I download them. Argh! So a little public service announcement: back your stuff up!!!!

I do post quite a bit now on my Instagram site: @gi_jigsaw

Anyway, guess what arrived late last week. My Black Series Snowspeeders and they are as awesome as I thought they would be. Besides the Millenium Falcon, the Snowspeeder is my favorite vehicle in the Star Wars saga.

This thing measures 16 inches from the back to the tips of the cannons. Lots of details and includes a figure of Dak Raltar.

When I look at this thing, "I feel like I can take on the whole Empire by myself."

I LOVE this thing. Well done Hasbro. Well done.

Check it out.
