Anyone collecting the Burger King Star Wars toys?

I don't know if this is the right place to post, but I'm collecting all of these. Not for money, but my son is really into it. I missed the week 1 toys. I need
Luke, Solo, Jabba, and Falcon. They don't even have to be in the package.
I have many for trade including:
Padme
Leia
Obi-wan
Boga
Jodi Starfighter
All of thes are NIP.

I also have Chewie out of package and these coming in for trade:
Darth Maul
Pod Racer

I can get more and will trade in your favor for my wants. Hope to hear from you.

thanks
David

Funny - those are 2 of the 4 I need. We have two in my area I"ve been going too and they've been pretty cool. They have let me choosed a couple times. Are you interested in trading those two for a stack of the extras I have?

Thanks

i bought one the ended up getting the hardest one to find; the vader!

my recommendation is to just get them off ebay; tons of people are selling them and it'll be easier to directly get what you want. many sell in lots as well.

I'd rather trade. The pricey are way too high and I've had great luck trading on this and other sites in the past. I also can help others out and save people some coin on toys I get for FREE. eBay is my last ditch effort, but for now I hope to get some trades going.

Nah, I just have a couple of extra basic figures. I suggest going to www.rebelscum.com forums. They have a whole section for SW toy trading.

Was at Burger King the other day and felt bad for anyone that would need to eat 30 meals there to get all these.

Can you buy these outright?

Yup. I've gone in and bout groups of 5 to get mine.

Guys, I don't have any doubles but let me know who you're looking for and I might be able to search around here for them. I'll take your Fett and Maul and Jabba's!

I've been eating there on Monday, but by the time my kids get two childrens meals and I buy 2 with my meal I have 4 of the 5 for that week. My mom knows them there and goes and gets the other and extras so I've only had to suck down that food once a week. Not bad. I like their onion rings.

digital - I'll have to see what I still need. I just made a trade that gets me up to date. I'll get back. thanks

My local BKs are not selling the toys individually (don't know if this is chainwide or not). Anyone care to explain the logic of this?

The toys must only cost a few pennies to produce... why not sell them individually for a buck or two? Refusing to allow me to pay money for them? That just doesn't make sense...

The one right near me has clearly had a bunch of requests. They've actually posted a sign on the door that says "Don't bother asking: Star Wars toys not for sale without meal." It's right on the door -- causing people to turn around before they even enter the restaurant. Seems to contradict the whole point of the promotion.

EDIT: Buckee1 -- you can see them all at http://www.bk.com/StarWars/

de nada.

after scanning and posting that, I decided to go through my bags to see what I had and what I was missing. after going through all four, I discovered I had the complete set. they're pretty cool for what they are. Luke, Leia, Obi-Wan, Mace, 3PO & Maul all have pictures in 'em [hold 'em up to the light and turn the wheel]. but the coolest has to be the jawa. his eyes light up when you squeeze his stomach.

as far as the BKs over here, all of 'em sell 'em separately [though I like BK slightly more than McD's, there's NO WAY i'd eat all this crap just for a toy]. wonder how "limited" the Vader figure was..

I just got back from the UK recently and they only offered 6 different toys at BK but they came in a cool kids meal box that carries all the figures. They were also all sold seperately if you didn't want the meal. The coolest toy is a the C3PO one which you have to assemble. It stands about 8" high. The only similar one is the flipping Yoda toy; all the others are different designs from the US versions.


Yoda
Chewbacca
C-3PO
Darth Vader
Millennium Falcon
R2-D2
