Commander Cody (man how hard is it previously to get a hold of this guy?!)...and probably Plo Koon, coz he has a removeable mask!
A fully articulated Zuckuss!!! Definitely gonna be better than the POTF release! Not forgetting Hoth Luke!
While I've stopped completely from collecting the Force FX Lightsabers a long time ago (4 is already PLENTY!!!! It's enough for me to dress up as General Grievous for God's sake!), the mere sight of Count Dooku's and Asajj Ventress' lightsabers is truly breathtaking!
DEFINITELY the main highlight of '09....
This looks cool too...and will look sweet alongside my existing TIE's...
Let's see if these DO arrive in the South East Asia retail market.......or else we'd be forced to give our blood to the scalpers on a certain online auction website! LOL......

"From the first appearance of Darth Vader in the groundbreaking movie Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Star Wars fans have known what terror feels like -- and they loved it. But never before has Star Wars publishing ventured into the unknown territory of true horror . . . until now.
When the Imperial prison barge Purge breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope seems to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back -- bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours, nearly all aboard the Purge will die. And death is only the beginning.
For aboard the Star Destroyer, amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn't really empty at all, the dead are rising, soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry."

I've got tonnes of Star Wars figures but I don't think I have the patience to build a diorama from scratch. LOL....So here's to challenging you Star Wars fans (those who come across my humble blog) in the region to submit one on behalf of the whole South East Asian region! We salute you!!!!

09.09.09 marks the worlwide release of the original Beatles catalogue, which has been digitally re-mastered by studio engineers for the first time, the same date as the release of the widely anticipated "The Beatles: Rock Band" video game. Each of the CDs is bundled with replicated original UK album art, including expanded booklets containing original and newly written liner notes and rare photos. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. On the same date, two new Beatles boxed CD collections will also be released. One in stereo in its entirety and one in mono. For more info, head on to The Beatles official website for the official announcement.
The 'stereo' boxset
I'm still in limbo though, I have every single one of them already, except for the Beatles for Sale album (which I had been holding out to buy for some unknown reasons!). Should I go out and just buy that particular album...or do I buy the stereo boxset which contains all of the remastered albums? As a huge Beatles fan, I'd definitely be tempted to get the boxset because I'm positively sure that it's gonna come with more rare photos, articles and audio goodness inside (studio chat, song commentary etc.).
This is one considerably huge box if compared to the ones housing the Y-Wings!
Geek fact: Wedge Antilles was Red 2 during the Battle of Yavin (Ep IV) and he was Red Leader during The Battles of Endor (Ep VI).....
This is a really cool box-art!
Fans have been waiting for oh-so-long for this screen-accurate yellow ladder to be produced. Previously this was only made available with that SDCC '09 exclusive Luke Skywalker figure. I forgot to snap a close look of the brown ladder used by the ground technicians to check on the wings.
Mr. Antilles himself looking pretty somber for some reasons....
Wedge's trusty astromech droid, an R4-G9 unit....posing by the yellow ladder....he's no Artoo, but he'll do the job the same!
Next, I got myself several comic packs (5 to be exact!). These were going at a 30% discount at a nearby retail outlet. The one with the black-carded was even going for 50% less! Normally I would hesitate and go back and forth before deciding to pick up at the most.....2 or 3 comic packs at one go. But given that most of these comic pack are red hot item (i.e. constantly being 'ridiculously-marked-up 'on eBay!), I just had to get 'em all!
I got myself the Imperial Knights (Draco and Grieg), Darth Talon/Cade Skywalker (smokin' hot!!!), Darth Vader/Grand Moff Trachta (who gives a s*** about yet-another-Vader......its Trachta I'm after!), Grand Admiral Thrawn and Talon Karrde; and the Lt. Jundland/Deena Sheen (I just can't resist another Imperial officer!) comic pack.
What a Galactic month it has been! Next, I'll be waiting for these to hit Malaysian stores:
May the Force be with me (AND my wallet)....always!!!
