    Man those Titanium utlras feel perfect. It's a little tricky getting them out of the package though. The Arc and Xwing are definitely worth it.


    Getting the SW ships in scale has already happened actually , just not in die cast or Micro scale.
    There's so many different SW lines one could mix the mall to having the right scale for each (except like you said about the larger ships)

    That Titanium Death Star is like one of those toys you hold at a distance from the ship in your other hand, and by squinting one eye to make it seem larger in the background you can almost make it look like the ship is flying towards it.haha

    I broke down today and picked up the Ultra ARC 170 and must say I am quite disappointed. To be fair, I am a "pick up and play" sort of collector, and that obviously isn't what these are meant for. However, it would be nice if there was some indicator of that. Honestly, the price point and the location (WM toy aisles) kind of gives the impression that these are appropriate for kids - you know, the sort who pick up and play with their toys.

    What specifically bugged me?

    First, the fighter is screwed to the base. I have to assume this is the case with all of the Ultras, so that they don't come loose during shipping. Admittedly it doesn't take much effort to free them, but it doesn't seem like that's the intent.

    Second, there is little real play value here. The cockpit opens and closes, and that's it. It has two gun turrets that don't move (additional cost for that would have been zero), and the S-foils don't close.

    IN the end, it's just a scaled up version of the basic titanium toy, which is simply not enough to get another $20 from me.

    Since you have one (though I'm sure it's packed up now since you're moving) do you think the Lego SD is roughly in scale with Titanium fighters?

    Go for it. You can rotate the top half so the slits in the laser are either black or green, for firing and not firing.

    Dunno, but I doubt it. It'd be cool for size, but by itself it'd be just like a metal soccer ball.

    I got the Death Star, I like it. A coworker asked me what this was and jokingly I replied "It's where we work."

    Today I got Darth Vader's TIE Advanced x1 Starfighter. It's pretty cool. I think all of it is made of die-cast metal. It's pretty heavy. And nicely detailed.

    FYI - I found the Deluxe Snowspeeder and Slave I in my Super WalMart today. Didn't buy them, but they are out there.

    Hm, maybe I should've stopped at walmart this morning. Oh well, I don't want the larger ships anyway.

    Anyone else crazy eager for the TIE interceptor? And maybe a B-wing?

    Don't know if this is new to anyone, but the walmart 5 pack seems to be out (maybe it's been out a while, don't know) and I picked up a set. Haven't opened yet though. It was $19.97

    The most recent five pack I've seen has a silver Millenium Falcon, a Y-Wing, a Tie Fighter, an X-Wing and a land speeder.

    I found these individuals yesterday: regular Millenium Falcon, silver Slave-1, new Jedi Starfighter, Queen's Royal Starship, AAT and Sith Infiltrator.

    Just bought a few today and now I feel hooked! I started out my collection w/ Vader's TIE fighter, Imperial Shuttle, AT-AT, Wookie Flyer, AT-TE tank, and the limited Republic Gunship. Going back tomorrow morning to Wal-Mart for the white TIE fighter. Also hitting a local toy show...if I have any $$ left I'll pick up that Wal-Mart 5 pack as well.
