These are terrible photos I took so I have a record of what accessories came with what figure.
First, the Uglies. T-800 was a Christmas present I believe. Found the Predator at Barnes and Noble for $5. Ugnaughts (my second set) were purchased at Kowabunga Comics a few years ago.
Power of the Jedi Darth Vader, then Cloud City Pilot. Both from Kowabunga Comics:
Cloud City Guards from Kowabunga Comics:
T-1000 and Sarah Connor, Christmas presents. Terminator purchased from Amazon. The T-800 I originally purchased only came with one of his weapons. Would a miscard be worth tons of money? Probably not.
Dark Empire Luke. Has some wear and didn’t come with his lightsaber, but he was only $1. And Floppy Hat Luke purchased from Kowabunga Comics.
This is a Star Wars photo comic I finished on December 31, 2011. It used to be hosted on Nibcrom.com, but I figured it made more sense to host it here.
“Dark times have fallen on the Galactic Empire. With numerous resculpts of standard figures filling the shelves, countless repacks glutting the market, and neither a prequel nor even sequel in sight, fans and collectors have lost some of their frenzied appetite for 3.75″ Star Wars figures. Superior paint applications, better likenesses, and increased articulation should speak in favor of newly released figures, but such advancements have come at a staggering price, and even the most staunch collectors pause and perhaps even pass over new items.
“Exhausted from the Ultimate Galactic Hunt, completists have become an endangered species.
“Understanding that the future of his vast Empire hangs in the balance, Emperor Palpatine makes a desperate bid to retain power: Order 95, the extermination of all POTF2 figures. The Emperor hopes that the vacuum left behind will encourage consumers to replace their lost collectibles, not knowing that a handful of photonovelists are recording the progress of this dreadful order…”

Super7 has announced they are releasing a special 3-pack of Alien Reaction Figures at New York Comic Con: Dallas, Kane, and Lambert, all in the space suits they wore on the surface of LV-426.
Some fans have questioned the colors of the figures and wondered whether or not they are film accurate.
As a follow-up to Battle of the Stands, Volume I, let’s take a look at Star Stands:
Star Stands come in five varieties: a circular vintage stand, a circular modern stand, a rectangular modern stand, a vintage stand with the Kenner logo, and a vintage stand with a Star Wars character-specific nameplate.
Here’s how to turn your T1000 (sic) with Hole in Head into Sky Commanders T-1000:
Step 1: Get some string.
Step 2: Put the string through the hole in the T-1000’s head.
Step 3: Go for a ride!
The T1000 (sic) Frozen Patrolman is a neat looking figure.
Unfortunately, his “ice” was coming off before I even opened the package:
Lt. Ripley, from Kenner’s 1992 Aliens line; and Ripley, from Funko’s 2013 Alien Reaction Figures line, based on a sculpt from 1979.
Here’s a couple of pics from May 2014:
