Just bought the Wookie Warrior down at the Zellers on Sparks Street Mall down in Ottawa.

They had all four Sneek Peaks, great looking cards, lava's a real image and not drawn.  A bit too much tape on the packaging if you ask me, the card is glued bottom and top and taped on the sides.

As for the wookie, its very similar to VOTC chewy save for one less segment on the abdomen and the arms are articulated like VOTC Lando.  Finally, the feet don't swivel.

This is a massive figure about half an inch taller than VOTC chewy but the width is unbelievable.  When you do get it for yourselves, let me know if you think that the hat looks better worn backwards

Comes with removable shin pads, hat and wookie weapon, a bowcaster would have been better.

Anyways good arctic hunt.

These are way better than E2 preview, articulation is wonderful!!!

Forgot to add, Tion Medon looks like he's got curdoroy pants face or like he fell asleep on a rippled pillow and just woke up.

Very scary.

The figure also comes with a description for all four figures, Tion is said to be the administrator of the Utaupan world where Obi-wan is sent to hunt down Grievious.

Nothing else of much interest that is not known.

Until next time!

hey hey HL02..  great to see another Ottawa collector... but don't forget to post your finds in the Ottawa thread under the Ontario Forums too :)

the figures are quite nice..

but i'm not too happy about the card/bubble/etc...  being a carded figure collector, it'll be tough to find these in good shape, let alone get them home after unaware cashiers dumping them in bags...   the card is die cut and has lots of places for the card to bend...  the bubble is taped to the back of the card (similar to the GI Joe Venom vs. Valor cards)...  which for some of the figures on the shelf.. had already started peeling off...   oiy

the package overall is much smaller so i might be able to fit more in my storage containers..

these figs are tri-logo..  if anyone finds US cards, don't miss reporting that too!

They had about 16 figures on the peg, retract the one I bought so 15 left.

They had the same number of each four figures, I went around 12hr30 so their may yet be some left in the morning.

Good luck!!

Back from my Sparks Street early morning Figure Haul 8am!!! That is a new record for me... god it was a close one too.... I was able to get all the preview figs... but there was a guy there before me, so I kinda butted my way into his to take the figures...

as of when I  left, there was two GG's and one Wookiee..... cards slightly bent... these things are hard to get in good shape... and the tape on them is more to be desired....

thanks HL02 for the heads up!! You helped me alot today....

Thanks General Brashin,

Went to Oakville Zellers, and still lots. At least 4-5 of each left.

That is of 12pm today.

Post by: HunterCJ on January 21, 2005, 01:14:52 PM
Had the four preview figures at Zellers in Pickering Town center today.  There were 3-4 of each.  I grabbed a Grevious and Wookie to start, as these should be abundant in the near future.  I guess the shelf date is not supposed to be until Feb. 1st, but I guess Zellers doesn't pay attention to details.

Oh, and they rang up at $8.97 which is a dollar more than the OTC figs were.  Guess it is true the cost from Hasbro has increased.  Guess we can expect this will the Ep.3 movie line.   :'(

Happy hunting!

I picked up my set of four Preview figures today at the same Oakville store about ten this morning.  At that time there were still 7 or 8 of each left.

Also, a bit ironic, but aside from one VOTC Lando, all they had left in other Star Wars stuff was about 6 of the Episode I preview boxes of the STAP and Battledroid - still at $19.99!  What are they 5 years old now?

Well I remember that when AOTC figs came out, Zellers adhered to the street date while Wal-Mart and TRU put them out a week or 2 early, so Zellers got stuck with a bunch of figures people already had.  Maybe it's a pre-emptive strike?

Lets hope that Protech (http://www.protechproductsinc.com/starwars.htm) decides to make a Star Case 3.  Or maybe we'll see some new styled ProtectoPaks (http://www.adkinsstore.com/cgi/products.cgi?group=Protecto-Pak&pagenum=2&pagetype=shop&template=prcshop).  I imagine whoever releases a case first will make a lot of $$.

From what I have seen, General Grievous and the Wookiee Warrior are the peg warmers, bc they are packed 4 each a case, Tion and R4 are 2 each a case..... When I found my preview set, there were 3 GGs, 2 Wookiees and one Tion and one R4.........I bought one of each...

I did...No trouble really with the lightsabre 'coz I left it on the hand.  Just had a bit of trouble standing him, so his left foot is stuck out and up a bit so that he can stand properly.  Otherwise, he's a cool-lookin' figure.

It's here!!! I just got back from Metrotown's Zellars and found 4 pegs full of ROTS Preview Toys. Not sure if TRU had any, got too excited as I paid for it and went straight home. BTW they got tons of GG and wookie, few R4-G9 and Tion Medon. I think the ratio was 2:1 per case. Go now before it's gone.

Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Jedi Jedd on January 25, 2005, 08:02:02 PM
IMO this is a great case ratio move by hasbro. Obviosly grevious and the wookie would be the most popular, so it's nice to see a good supply of them. Although I hope I can find the astromech when they get here. :)

I was also very glad that they made it at that ratio. They finally understand which characters need to be produced more. So we dont get too much peg warmers.

surprisingly, london was very good at keeping with the feb 1st release date and well the big day is here and what did I find in london....hardly anything. Only 1 of the 4 zellers had them...and only had 12 figures...toys r us didn't have theirs out yet and apparently only got 36 in stock....

any news when the starfighter will be making an appearance?

overall impressed with them...glad to see they finally got the 3rd leg on an R2 unit to conceal properly....can't wait for the big release in april, although from looking on the 3 card back pics that are circulating, it appears that we're going to see a fair amount of rehashing of figs...

anyone from london want to make a road trip to port huron when the day comes?

Well isn't that pretty much par for the course. I don't remember seeing the Y-Wing anywhere in Canada. TRU Canada proabely dropped all Star Wars vehicles, since they always seems to get stuck with some. At my local TRU there are 13 M-Falcons just sitting on the shelf.

Well none of the local stores have the preview wave here in Pdot. Wally just put out a case of POTC (Pablo, Sly, Rabe, etc) No Cantina stuff. According to the lackey at Wally they won't get ROTS stuff til April which means no preview wave at all. Local Zellers has no room for stuff here and is still clogging the pegs with Ultra Riekeens for $18. Glad I picked up the preview figs I wanted a week or so ago. Ironic since the US is already getting the first wave of Sith figures for sale at Targets.  :'(

tonight Newmarket walmart had a couple potc (rabe, pablo, and sly moore) but no ROTS, TRU had no ROTS, but Zellers had the ROTS figures. I got the last R4-G9, but they had lots of the other three. It almost seemed that R4-G9 was the only figure anyone else bought. I know he's short-packed but to have only one left with several of the others was interesting.

Just he back of the cards. They are like the OTC wave. It just had pics of the preview figs and Anaking Fighter. Were as the American one has a little BIO and a pic of the figure the canadian one has neither.

Great that your week's been good, and people, he's right, Comic Book Shops generally charge alot more, espescially if the item isn't in abundance yet.

For instance, AVP figures this Summer, expensive through June and July, but in August, a huge display came out at Wal-Mart, figures were all $15, and the Comic Book prices dropped to about half.

Never fear, I think $30 for the Starfighter is highly likely.

yea these fighters will be $30 for sure..either before or atleast after taxes,last fall i believe i picked up the three AVP Preadators all in one shot at TRU, think they were $12.99 or $14 i forget..they are really awesome just really brittle and easy to break the closed spear on the back, and the shoulder mount gun was horribly loose and hard to pose at times, i dis-liked the fact they used the same body for each one..and just switched the arms, and all the armor was the same,other then that great figures, SCAR then the Elder were my favorite.

Yeah, the Celtic was the one I got, the leg snapped right off my buddies, just as we were posing them.

Mine, however is pretty decent. I agree that the mounted shulder gun is quite loose, often, but it's a great sculpt, as usual with McFarlane.

A lot of Wallys are avoiding the preview wave like the black plague. The Wally here is getting BARE MINIMUM of ROTS stuff so that they don't get stuck with loads of the stuff come Xmas time. Here's hoping they clear away some of the Spiderman stuff cuz that crap has been sitting there since last March! I've only seen the preview wave for sale once and that was at a Zellers like over a month ago now. As for available stuff right now - the only junk they have on the shelves is the Pablo POTC wave and some dregs of Dagobah Luke and a ton of Bossk and IG-88s. IMO, Bossk should have not been re-released on OTC....He was just in one of the last assortments of Saga so he's a major pegwarmer now (despite being a decent fig)

Hey Valfar, I'm envious -- that Deluxe Anakin looked amazing and I'm dying to get one. I can't believe that they're charging $20 for the Dooku!!! It's a great figure, but man, those really are scalper's prices.

What's the articulation like on the Anakin (that is, if you can tell from outside the packaging).
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Valfar on February 18, 2005, 09:24:08 AM
Well anakin's forearms come off so you can plug vaders forearms on when changing..so his forearm has articulation at the elbow kinda like a swivel,i  am not sure if he has ball-jointed shoulders, i doubt it..i know the Obi-wan deluxe has ball-jointed shoulders and articulation in the hands,knees,hips and waist but, he has this anoying metal rod and base near his feet for the "force jumping attack" i hope this thing can be removed,i am still not sure if i like Anakins cape..i may just throw secret ceremony Anakins cape on him sometime in the future,this cape we get looks some what too angular,the two front pieces of his robe look too close together and very block shaped,looks like you have to remove Anakin's head to change to Darth Vader, and i must say, this is one of the best scupts of Vader i have ever seen..too bad they never used this vader head on a actual vader figure.
So i am debating opening them,but they are on US card, i opened my Dooku since there was a bit of a crease in the card, i was kicking myself in the a** the whole way home thinking i could had grabbed a Dooku out of the case instead i got him off the peg,maybe i will wait and buy the tri-logo stuff i already have and open that instead.

TOYS TOYS TOYS at Hillcrest Mall in Richmond Hill, ON (Carrville and Yonge) had minimal ROTS stock.  I only grabbed Mon Mothma and Padme at $14.99 each.  They had two deluxe Palpatine/Sidious and one deluxe Obi-Wan With Super Battle Droid at $19.99 each.  Was not interested in those.  Other figures left over at $14.99 included all 4 of the Sneak Preview figures, Bail Organa (Who looked 'nasty'!!!), C-3PO, Battle Droid, and Palpatine.  I was debating whether to buy any or not...I mean they will eventually show up at Zellers, Walmart, and TRU for probably cheaper, but heck...Why not!  These still had the stooooopid tape on the back just like the Sneak Preview ones...How stooooopid can they get???!!!

I noticed from the posting on Galactic Hunter about Deluxe Anakin that his head actually sinks into his chest in order to put the Vader helmet on.  Don't know why, but I find this actually to be a pretty cool idea (assuming it doesn't easily pop back up and knock the Vader head off).

Now kids can play "peek-a-boo" with Anakin's head  ;D
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Valfar on February 19, 2005, 12:27:56 PM
Yea its not a bad feature but, Anakin's head cannot turn at all, and when you clip the vader helmet and cape piece on, there are two white tabs under vaders head that clip into anakin's shoulders as his head springs down..in the instructions it states that you apply the first tap in on the left and then work it on over to the right, you will hear it click in.

A great score here in Kingston at Wally-World.  To my absolute shock, there was 10 of the first 12 mainline ROTS figures hanging when I went in at 7:00 tonight. I myself picked up #4 Super Battle Droid, #6 Clone Trooper, #8 Grievous' Bodyguard, and #11 Darth Vader.
Judging by the picture check-list on the backs, the only 2 figures I didn't see there tonight were #2 Anakin and #9 General Grievous.

Gen. Baily, Yes it is the new one that is on Midland Ave. just north of the TRU, (the old one is now closed for good). There was only one each of the 10 at the time, (minus the two I listed). Seemed odd to me too as I'm used to seeing doubles, (or quadruples of some :)). The Clone Trooper was laying on the shelf below the peg and the Emperor was on the OTC peg next row over so I know I wasn't the first to lay eyes on the score... But who in their right mind would leave four fig's I bought...!!!!  If you wake up early and drive the 40min's up here, You might find the rest still here. I got what I wanted already... :-* (except the four lightsaber Grievous...)
Price was $8.96.

I found the preview wave today as well as the first 12 ROTS figures at my Walmart in North Bay,ON! They had one case of the regular figures (1-12) and 2 cases of the preview wave. The odd thing here though is that Grevious and the Wookie are the short packs (2 each per case) while the droid and Tion are 4 per case.
Anyhow I picked up all 12 ROTS figures and 2 sets of the preview figures. So there are 2 complete sets left plus 4 extra droids and Tion's. Cost was $8.92/figure. I was glad to see the price didn't go up like it has in the US. The lady there (who I know really well now as I'm there every day:) told me she'd be ordering more (as i had cleaned out over half her stock).
Good luck to the rest of you. Keep an eye on those Walmarts  :-*

obi wan kenobi
anakin

Is the Royal Guard in the first 12?
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Sandtrooper Tyler on February 22, 2005, 07:57:56 PM
The coolest figure for me would have to be the 4 handed Grevious. But really they all look good. Even the Super Battle Droid and R2. And the Royal guard was not in that set. It is #23 of collection 2.

I'm hoping for a mircale at my local Wally-World. They still haven't stocked any preview figures...

If ANYBODY knows of any stores in Edmonton that carry the regular ROTS line, let me know, I'll pick a few figures up.

Gen. Baily, Yes it is the new one that is on Midland Ave. just north of the TRU, (the old one is now closed for good). There was only one each of the 10 at the time, (minus the two I listed). Seemed odd to me too as I'm used to seeing doubles, (or quadruples of some :)). The Clone Trooper was laying on the shelf below the peg and the Emperor was on the OTC peg next row over so I know I wasn't the first to lay eyes on the score... But who in their right mind would leave four fig's I bought...!!!!  If you wake up early and drive the 40min's up here, You might find the rest still here. I got what I wanted already... :-* (except the four lightsaber Grievous...)
Price was $8.96.

Hey bud,

I hit the Wally World in Cobourg and found some ROTS figs.... I found only 6 figs.. one each of:

GG bodyguard
Obi-Wan
Anakin
Mace
Palpatine
Super Battle Droid

I bought all but the Super Battle Droid...... GG is gonna be a b***h to find I can tell....

Yeah but it seems it's only the smaller cities of North Bay or Kingston that's getting them in.  So far in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) it's been only available at TOYS TOYS TOYS at a premium price.  I've been to a few Walmarts and nothing.

Top shelf...that's their overstock/holding area. I heard/know that their merchandisers (Wal*Mart and TRU) are encouraged not to put stock in back room when they are clearing out the receiving bay and to put on shelf or overstock and, in this case, without realizing there is a release date on these items, unless these items DO NOT have one.

It would appear Wal*Mart distribution has started pushing these out to the stores for, in theory, Apr.2, which would make some sense as I recall seeing inventory storage (in a separate area) of some items made a month before release and to ensure the particular retailer will have it in quantity in their system.  Stores are encouraged to place their orders from central distribution early to ensure they get product.

Here's to hoping the Eastern Canada stores don't get wise to what's happening and inform the whole chain, or else we won't see these early releases out West.

Man oh man! Has it been a hell of a last couple days here in Ottawa. First off, on Tuesday Feb 22, I read all these postings of EP3 figures leaking out early at Wal-Mart right accross Ontario. So I hop in the car and cruise the WM scenes. Nada!!! Then on Wednessday I check 'em again and now they are all sporting EP3 Preview figures, but still no official April 2nd figures. But still the forum persists of people across Ontario finding leaked figures. Well, in a last ditch effort I drive across the bridge to the Wal-mart in Gatineau Quebec and ... BOOYAH!!! Score 5 leeaked figures.
#01 Obi-wan
#02 Anakin
#05 Chewie
#07 R2-D2
#10 Mace

Can anybody who has an opened Anakin tell me if their's has a scar on his left cheek or am I just a victim of a poor casting process?

Went to Burlington, Milton, South Common (Mississauga) Walmarts and they had Nada. Not even the preview figures, which leads me to believe the collection 1 have not arrived yet at any of these locations.

If you see preview figures and no collection 1 my bet is that someone has already hit that location.

My guess is that they won't be available again until their original release date....I suppose I can wait.

The Anakin Sneak Peek Starfighter was at SCI-FI WORLD in Toronto, ON (1600 Steeles Ave. West) for $39.99.  Kind of high of a price, so I left it.  But I thought the box was heavier than usual for a toy ship.  Maybe it was me, 'coz I was kind of excited with other stuff I saw in the store.

Well I went to my Walmart in North Bay, ON today to see if they had replenished their ROTS stock (and hopefully get the col 2 figures now) only to find out they are non-replenishable according to thier stock gun. So if you find em you better grab them as we may not see anymore until next month.

BTW, I know the manager of the toy department there and she checked them out herself. Can anyone else confirm this at their Walmarts?

Post by: TILALLR1 on March 03, 2005, 01:41:32 PM
I'm going to take a wild guess.

Hasbro found out Walmart put out the figures early and slapped them on the hand.

Street dates exist for a reason. Sure we couldn't care less, but I am sure Lucasfilm does.

I don't think we are going to see any more of these leaks. Unless someone does it by freak accident.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Eatons Trooper on March 03, 2005, 03:00:15 PM
I used to work in a major bookstore, and "street dates" were seldom used but a big deal when they are. Mostly for the just the big names of literature...Tom Clancy, John Grisham, Harry Potter...anyway, retailers are actually given threats of no future product, loss of bulk discounts, etc. when they violate street dates. The same thing goes for release of new DVD's & CD's. It's all part of the marketing plan.

Of course, Hasbro can't afford to have their product NOT available in WalMarts, so I can't imagine what threats they can hold over the largest retail chain in the world. The power of the force is insignificant next to the power of WALMART!

Personally, I don't care about street dates..I just want some figures....is that too much to ask? I haven't found one measly ROTS figure anywhere, and I've checked four different WalMarts, Zellers, etc. and followed up on local tips from these forums. Nothing! My hat's off to those of you who've found them!

JUST returned home from east walmart here in Regina, SK, and managed to grab 8 of the first 12 ROTS figs, only missing Anakin, Super Battle Droid, Clone Trooper, and Vader.  Very nice!  The GF didnt quite like the arm full of toys, but she allowed it since I just sold off a bunch of McFarlane stuff.   ;D

 :-X  Took my monthly trip across the border to NY state, looking for some EP3 Collection 2 figures. Alas it was not to be. But fate smiled at me when I blew in to a Target store in a small town called Fayetteville. There sitting in the Star Wars section was a DROID TRI-FIGHTER and 2 GRIEVOUS' WHEEL BIKES. They each cost $19.99 US  ($24.75 CDN).

While I didn't open the Tri-Fighter, I did open 1 of the 2 wheel bikes. The vehicle itself is amazing and all but the Grievous figure included is MOST UNDESIRABLE ::). I'll write up a full review on Sunday the 6th.

I picked up the first 12 today as well.  

I thought Vader, Obi, clone were good (surprised by Obi).
Mace is a little off, but by far the best we have to this point.  I'm happy with him and respectfully disagree with double cup.
Not a fan of the rest, though Chewie (all your old Chewbacca's are now out of scale, btw) and Palpatine were nice.  I think lots will like Grievous and bodyguard too.  R2, Anakin (nice suntan ::)) and Yoda suck (when did Yoda get a long neck?).

Just picked up all 12 Collection 2 (Wave 1) figures at Zellers in Bathurst, NB. The Royal Guard was the red version, as noted by another poster.

Our Walmart still doesn't have stock of the Collection 1 (Wave 1) figures, but the toy department manager tells me that there are 72 on order.

Post by: powerpig on March 14, 2005, 07:08:07 PM
Actually, they're trilingual. It's just harder to tell with these new cards. Take a close look at the name field -- where it's not a character name (like C-3PO), you'll see it listed three languages (Royal Guard, Guard Imperial, Guardia Imperial). The card back is trilingual, too, with no specific character information listed.

Still, it was quite the find!

Well I stand corrected.  Its just odd to me since the collection 1 figures which I found here in Regina were also tri-logo, but didnt have the stuff like  "Jedi Master" on the bubble.  

Oh, crazy Hasbro. ::)

Still a great score.   :-*  Really cant wait to find that Dooku!

I scored all of Collection 1 today at Zellers.  A young lady was loading the pegs as I happened by.  They had at least 4 cases worth.  I asked politely if I could have a couple of the empty boxes as I was going to buy a few figures and they were handy for storage.  Where would we be if young stockpersons actually looked at the cases and saw the red lettering which reads 'ON SHELF DATE NO EARLIER THAN APRIL 02, 2005' in 6 different spots on the box.  Also grabbed the post-OTC figs. that I still needed.  Can't wait for the credit card bill to arrive...maybe I'll have it paid by April 2nd and can focus on Collection 2, vehicles, Deluxe...yikes.

I picked up some of the collection two figures in Truro, NS yesterday.  Saw all of them, but didn't buy them all.  Red Royal guard as well, so I don't think the blue Senate security has been seen up north yet.  I think they put them out by mistake, there were quite a few preview figs on the pegs and these were just mixed right in.  

So I've now found all of collection I and II at retail - the first 24 figures.

I don't at all doubt what you say but Hasbro can't honestly think they can live without Walmart, can they?  I mean really, this leg is on it's last line.  Walmart would look at Hasbro and say fine, see ya later, we're dropping all your toys then.  Wanna see Hasbro drop a load?

true but the problem is hasbro owns almost every other toy line.  Plus from what I've herd Lucas bought into Wal-mart last year so it might hurt them in more then one way.  

I don't think that Wal-mart will lose it for good but it will be a bad day for them to pay that multi billion dallor law suit.  Because 300 thousand a day pre store world wide adds up fast.

As Morgbug said, Hasbro would be total idiots to scr*w with a huge chain like Walmart.  I mean, if it were Hasbro Canada I could see them pulling a bonehead move like that but I think the U.S parent may actually have a bit of a clue about supply and demand, distribution, etc.  If they don't want things on sale before a certain date they shouldn't ship them almost a month in advance.  Human error is always possible and because of it I, and many others, are enjoying all 12 collection 1 figures at this time.

Hey Blink,

They are located on Dundas & Dixie in Mississauga. They are actually on Dundas:

Westdale Plaza
1131 Dundas Street West
Mississauga, Ontario
L5C 1C5
(905) 270-3231

I'm sure they still have a ton. My wife picked them up for me closer to the end of the day. 4pm ish. I was only missing a Clone Trooper and Yoda. At least 3 sets of each were left. Since my wife said she saw about 3-4 clone troopers left. Probably more since I wasn't there.

Good Luck

Post by: powerpig on March 16, 2005, 01:20:08 PM
I checked out my local Zellers again today, to see if Collection 1 had arrived, and if there were any more Collection 2.

As it turns out, there are AT LEAST 12 BOXES OF COLLECTION 2 in the stock room. They also expect 12 boxes of Collection 1 any day now.

Bathurst is a rather small town with a population of 14,000. We have both a Walmart and a Zellers. And there aren't many collectors here. There is no way that Zellers is going to sell 12 cases of Collection 2 figures, no matter how good the movie. And with Walmart getting in the same figures any day now, well, it's a collector's paradise.

I'm willing to help those of you who can't find Collection 2. I will gladly go and purchase a full box of figures and mail it to you.

The cost of of the figures is $8.97 each, or $123.77 in total with taxes. You'll have to pay shipping, of course, and I'd appreciate it if you'd throw in a few bucks (say, $8) for my time and gas for my car.

I'm not looking to make any money with this, just help out fellow collectors. Unfortunately, I don't have time to pick up individual figures for people, so it'll have to be a full box of the 12 Collection 2 figures: Padme, Palpatine, C-3P0, Dooku, Battle Droid, Bail Organa, Kit Fisto, Shakk Ti, Plo Koon, Agen Kolar, Mon Mothma and the Royal Guard (Red).

I'd prefer to be paid with an email money transfer, but I'll accept Paypal, too, so long as you cover the cost of the transaction.

And just so you know I'm not some scammer, here's a few links where you can learn about me or see some of my work:

Zellers on Plains Rd. in Burlington/Aldershot still has scads of ROTS figures.  I dropped by and picked up an extra Emperor to open earlier tonight.  They had 50+ figures on the pegs and I even spyed a couple of unopened cases sitting on a skid a little ways away.  A few Post-OTC figures left as well.  Get 'em if you want 'em.

Went there today, just to check it out and I can confirm a ton of figures. I also saw the two extra unopenned boxes. If you need a clone trooper this is your best bet. Good luck.

but its not just hasbro canada its all of hasbro.  They made everyone sign contract stating not to sell untell the day.  Everyone has there cases in there stores or should soon but the bad thing is Wal-mart is lettting the scalpers making money buy selling them early.  I just think its bad business pratice and it sucks that many wal-mart employes are losing there jobs and in some cases being charged do to this.  That why I'm waiting tell April 2nd to buy them from chinook hobbies because I feel its wrong to support this.

Bathurst is in northern New Brunswick.

And, yeah, they have 12 boxes of Collection 2! I really don't mind picking one up for you; otherwise, they'll just sit here and warm pegs all summer. I'm looking for a link to the old snowtrooper message boards, where you can feedback from people I've sold stuff to. I can't find it right now, though... I'll post it as soon as I locate it.

Just let me know what you'd like me to do!

I'm sure they still have a ton. My wife picked them up for me closer to the end of the day. 4pm ish. I was only missing a Clone Trooper and Yoda. At least 3 sets of each were left. Since my wife said she saw about 3-4 clone troopers left. Probably more since I wasn't there.

Good Luck
thank you

Hey Quade,

Just open one of the two unopenned boxes sitting in the pile beside the toy section. Or ask for help. I am sure there are some clone troopers sitting there.

Wow!!! Just picked up all of collection 2 from Overlea Zellers and must I say alot of figures there. They also hand a decent number of collection 1. Very worth the 30min trip from Oakville, ON. Thanks so much for posting this find.

Also say at least 2 clone troopers, so if your looking for these it might also be worth the trip for you.

Founds tons of EPIII Lego @ Zellers (with the BOGO sale, it's a sweet deal) as well as all 4 Force Battlers.  Picked up Vader and Grevious.. they are $14.97 each.

The Zellers at Five Points only has a few preview figures and the Zellers in the OC has a bunch of ROTS figures but no clone troopers.

Holy spit, Batman!

I walked into our dinky little Zellers today (in my town of 5000) and found 23 of the first 24 ROTS figures!  

 :-X

Of course, Vader was that 24th figure.  

I haven't felt a rush like that in a long time!  I grabbed those 23 figures, plus doubles of about 10 more to open.

Ah.  The big guy in the sky was smiling on me today.

Yeah, it definitely hurt the pocketbook.  I just finished going back through my receipt and realized I bought 18 doubles.

41 x $8.92 = $365.72 - 10% = $329.15 x 14% = $375.23   :-[

I saved 10% because I applied for the HBC credit card, which they approved on the spot.  This could save someone else a few bucks too!

I looked through them tonite, and plan to do some serious playing tomorrow!   ;D

And I caved in....I grabbed 3 of them. I said caved in, cause I was just going to grab the ones I like, but I grabbed these ones cause I grabbed AOTC previews also..lol

Saw some Collection 1 Figures at the St. Albert Wal-Mart. Funny, they've never got Preview figures, just OTC peg-warmers, and next to them, some Collection 1.

All Toys R Us's and Zellers in the Edmonton area have had Preview Figures. I just need to buy another Wookiee and keep in MOC, then I'll have all four MOC.

That's all I've seen for now.

After a few weeks of putting one case out every 5 or 6 days, the Wal-Mart here in Kingston went and put out what I figure to be about 120 figures from coll. 1 and 2. Not even on pegs either, they were put on two 5ft. sections of shelving and left to stand on their own. (Gonna be a fricken mess of scattered figures there by tonight...)
I grabbed the 3 figures I wanted from the selection there, (Grievous #9, red Royal Guard, and a Battle Droid).
I did notice that on some of the packages, even though they were tri-logo, had those goofy U.S card-style decals across the front saying "Jedi Master", "Supreme Chancellor", etc...

WalMart in Brampton (Hwy 7) had the first 32 figures out today...and strangely none of these had the extra stickers on front "Jedi Master" or "Republic Senator"...they were just plain...unlike the few figures I got at Zellers last week.  They also had a few lightsabers on an end bin, but no vehicles or playsets.

OK...This is to show how cool my wife is...

We went out for dinner tonight, and after dinner we went to the Sears at Cambridge Center to buy a light sabre for our 19 month old son, who thinks they are super cool (OK, he can't talk, but he always reaches for them when he sees them at the store)....

On the shelf was one obi wan starfighter and one tri-droid fighter...

as we left the aisle, there was a cart full of boxes, and on the bottom was Hasbro box of "Star Wars Small Vehicles"... She tells me "If you can open that box, you can have whatever is in there."  

So, after restacking the pile, I managed to get a Boga and BARC speeder....19.99 each!!!

Zellers on Dundas near Wolfdale - had only 3 of the 4 deluxe figures - nothing else.
Zellers Sheridan Mall on Erin Mills had nothing.

Guess I went to the wrong Sears today.

Back to my earlier post about WalMart Brampton - yes the figures were on a mid-aisle stand - just about opposite the light sabers....not down any of the main aisles.

BountyHunter, you must have the favor of the scanner gods.

$10 for a whole case of Col. 2? That's amazing!

The other day, my Galactic Heroes Falcon only rang up as $30, instead of $40, and the figures were only $7, but for a whole case just $10?

In Winnipeg on March 29, found the first and second yodas, the first and second Obiwan and the Dark Anakin at the Walmart on North Portage.

Up at Kildonan Place, the Sears was seriously stocked.  They have most of the first 28 figures out, except Vader and Clone.  They had Wheelbike, Obi-Wan and Boga, Barc Trooper, Tri-fighter and Obi-Wan's Fighter.  Huge find.  

I have seriously under rated Sears as a source.  Guess I will have to add them to my usual routes.

Thanks... :P  Funny thing, well maybe not so funny. I went to another Zeller's on the off chance I might find more. I asked the girl in toys about them. She thought they didn't have any. I had the SKU, so she checked and lo and behold this Zeller's has 11 cases. I asked if I could get her bring me a case or 2, she said sure thing.  OK, so I'm rubbing my hands together about getting a whole whack of them.  

Well she came back empty handed and proceeded to tell about the whole april 2nd release. I said oh wow, are you sure?  Hehe. She said, oh yes, April 2nd. I said well maybe you could do me a favor and help me out by getting me some now, as I'm working on Sat.

Oh no, I can't do that. I'd get fired, she said.  I told her that's OK I just have to wait like everyone else.

She then told me that she was told to phone the other Zeller's where I found these figs I posted and tell them to get the rest off the pegs.

Oh, and the 11 cases at Zeller's.......which one??.......

Northside Zellers...... ???  have fun boys and girls

ROTS Vehicles @ Hilda/Steeles TRU. ObiWan & Anakin starfighters, grevious bike, & tri droid ship.
not that this is news but its something fpr those that are close to the area.
They were also in the middle of setting up the ROTS display near the front door. No midnight sale or early open or any thing special at all for TRU. though  i find it odd that they didnt put out the figures but put out the vehicles.

Took a lunch break yesterday and decided to check out the TRU in west end Ottawa. They have a nice ROTS display set up with Star Wars crime scene tape everywhere that says ..." do not cross until April 2nd, 2005." Anyway, I go to the action figure isle and score the second yellow animated clonetrooper that I needed and I found an entire case of the ROTS battle arenas. They were $29.99 cdn each. Case broke down like this:

Mace vs Palpatine x 1
Anakin vs Dooku   x1
Obi-Wan vs bodyguard x2

This is the second case assortment. The first one has 2 x Ani vs Dooku and 2 x mace vs Palp.

And the actual play feature works and is surprisingly fun. I took on all comers at my local comicbook shop and was obliterating them left and right. Man, the darkside is stronger!

I can't say for sure if canadian TRU's, Wal-Marts and Zellers will carry this wave, but the COMIC BOOK SHOPPE in Ottawa, Ontario (west end for sure) will carry a limited number of COLLECTION 2 WAVE 3 ( along with a slew of other ROTS merchandise) for their MIDNIGHT MADNESS sale. So if your in the area April 1/05 @ 11:59 pm and you want Mas Amedda, the AT-TE Tank Gunner, Polis Massan or Vader's medical droid I suggest you stop in.

Zellers (BC),   had all their stock on a skid labelled April 2.  I was able to snag 3 clone troopers.  Just as I was leaving another guy showed up and grabbed the remaining 4 or five clones.   I believe it was collection 1, every case seemed to have the same figures.   I also grabbed emperor, vader and gg's bodyguard. I left everything else behind. For which store, check out the provincial forum.

I am starting to wonder if WalMart is going to be the place to hit first tomorrow.  I have been in a few of their stores today, and aside from a smattering of the first 32 figures, there doesn't seem to a sign of much more to come - no vehicles, no deluxe sets, no 12" in evidence anywhere that might give a hint as to what they will put out tomorrow.  In fact there aren't even any empty pegs or sections that might be filled up with Star Wars merchandise tonight.

The only big store that looks like it is preparing anything special is TRU.  Most of the stores I have seen have blocked off big chunks of floor space near their front doors for the new merchandise - big signs on the doors indicating new merchandise coming april 2nd, etc.

Possibly Zellers could be a surprise...at least they have vehicles and deluxe figures pictured in their new flyers today, and a few of these toys have leaked out in some of their stores so far.  But again nothing past figure 32.

It will be interesting to see if stores like Silver Snail and the other independents have better assortments (and more fun things planned) than the big chains.  For them it appears to be a Ho Humm event.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: bobafett0rz on April 01, 2005, 11:10:00 PM
I came home from a tiring day of school to drop by Toys R Us.  They had a section blocked off and I asked someone and they said 8PM they should be stocking them.

So I drive down to Wal-Mart at square one and there was a tiny display of Ep 3! this is the first time i've seen the Ep3 figures in person. =P  there were probably about 16 pegs in total.  They had everything from 1-32, minus Vader, Clones, Luminara and Aayla.  So I grabbed obi wan (#1), anakin (#2), yoda (#3), grievous (#9)^_^, palpatine (#12), anakin (#28)

Then at 7:30 I finished my dinner and drove to Toys R Us at about 7:45.  I waited patiently and this nice fellow that worked there pulled up 32 Cases of Ep3! I watched as he opened ALL OF THE CASES.  Haha I bet he felt a little awkward, but i wanted my figures!  

Here's a recap, there were 4 darth vader figures in the whole 32 cases! I grabbed 2 of them ^_^.  And to my surprise there were so many Clone Troopers, it had to have been every other case, so possibly 16 of them!  I grabbed 2 of those haha ^_^.  And also, 2 of the 32 cases had the figures with the stickers on them.  I thought this was awkward, so I got Shaak Ti with Jedi Master sticker, and Aayla Secura with Jedi Knight sticker.  

Oh he also opened up one case of Animated Clone Wars and I managed to get a Yellow Clone Trooper.  Grievous, Asajj, 2 ARC, and others were in the box.  It was an expensive day already so I decided that was that.

8.92 each at Wal-Mart, 9.99 each at Toys R Us

Frantically drove home from work this morning and quickly hit the Wal-Mart on Winston Churchill/401.
NOT A SINGLE FIGURE TO BE FOUND.
Looks like I'm on my way to TRU .
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: old man ben on April 02, 2005, 11:34:56 AM
Well it was pretty much what I thought and feared (see my prediction above).
I went to Square One this morning - WalMart had a few picked over figures from the 1 to 32 waves - absolutley nothing else added this morning from what was put out earlier on Friday.  And from what you guys have reported already, WalMarts have obviously not supported the new release at all!

Zellers was a little better - at least they had several brand new cases of the figs 1-32, but nothing beyond that anywhere (even TRU).  They also had a few vehicles and the 4 deluxe figures.

TRU was definitely the best place to be, but I still found it all rather anticlimatic as everything I saw had been leaked out earlier in various stores.  They did have Darth Tator, some new 12" figures including Grievous, and the 3 new Unleashed figures (I picked up a Grievous but that was all I bought).  None of the Battle Arena sets, no new re-stocks of the Animated Clone Wars figures....but overall I was very disappointed not to find any new figures beyond #32 - personally, that's what I was hoping for.

My cousin is in the process of getting my stuff for me as we speak, he got me all figures up to #33!!! But considering I found the first 24 beforehand anyways, it really isnt that impressive!! I got the Clone Commander and Mas Amedda too!! In CDN Packagings!! I cleaned up shop today... I am sooo poor.. I got all Unleashed, Palpy Deluxe, Grievous' Wheel Bike, Obi's Starfighter.... and he is gonna hook me up with 12" Grievous and Palpy too!!

Awesome finds, and I cleaned up shop today!!

Post by: Darth Cujo on April 02, 2005, 01:35:19 PM
Well, went to Zellers hillcrest first this morning. They had a bunch of figures, including about 8 clones. Grabbed 2 vaders (one to keep carded), a couple clones and a deluxe anakin/vader. Passed on the rest. Just not in the budget.

Then went to TRU at Hilda/Steeles. They had a tonne of figures out and a guy was dumping cases of them into a big bin. All the figures were the first 32. And no Blue Guards, all red.

I was hoping that there'd be some of the 33-40 figures, but no luck. Tonnes of cool stuff though. Ships, 12" figures, force battlers, attactix, Tonnes of stuff out.

Honestly I don't see how anyone could be that disappointed though. I mean jeez, 32 figures, and all that other stuff? Maybe a little disappointed if you got the figures when they leaked, but really, what more could you expect?

Anyone in the Oakville/Burlington area, Zellers had 2 skids on the floor and give us free reign, one skid contained coll. 1 and 2 (roughly 25 boxes of each) and the other contained 8 boxes of the various ships, 10 boxes of Force Battlers, 15 boxes of lightsabers and 12 boxes of the assortment with Anikan 2, Obi 2, Yoda 2 and Tarrfull.

What truly made my day was beating the scalpers to everything at Wal-Mart and Zellers. They were P.O. off alright. I heard one of them saying they just "started" collecting Star Wars. Yeah, Right. One of the scalpers was a guy in his 60's, and he was grumbling and gave me a dirty look. I don't care. This guy and his other scalpers friends are *always* scalping treasure hunts and mcfarlane sportspicks chase figures. Sorry pal but once you start scalping Star Wars, your playing with the big boys.

The funniest thing was when Zellers opened I was the first one heading for the toys and didn't know where the rots figs were. So I went one way and my dad who was with me went another way, it totally confused the scalpers. I found the rots display first, and everyone else showed up 30 seconds later.


Well I ended up finding everything I wanted, except for the blue royal guard.

Picked up:

Red Guards x 4
Clone Trooper x 2
Tarfful
Yoda (Spinning Attack)
Deluxe Sidious (Quick Change)

There was no vehicles at Zellers here.  Guess they don't have them yet.

I've only made it to the Whitby TRU and they had a sweet Star Wars display. Lost of figures, no blue guards and I only saw 2 clone troopers which I purchased with a darth tater and a force battlers vader.

The cashier was saying that they only recieved 6 taters and she was probably right because I dropped by again after breakfast to see if they restocked (i really want a blue guard ok) and they were all gone.

Well I was lucky enough to know someone who works at TRU, he went through all their case assortments to see how many of the 40 they got.  Here are the results:

They had all of the following except:

#33 clone commander
#34 clone pilot
#35 palpatine
#36 grevious
#19 padne
#23 blue royal guard (they did have red)
#24 mon mothma

They also confirmed in their computer that they will be getting the Holographic yoda- but its still on order (should be here in a couple of weeks)

They had the 3 of the 4 deluxe Emperor was not in the asst

All 3 battle arenas

All 6 vehicles without figures

4 pce only of 12" Ultimate Darth Vader

All 3 unleashed

And Darth Tater

That was it I am out West so it looks like we canexpect to see the regular 12" soon, since it is being posted that they are in the Eastern stores.

Happy hunting everyone!!

TRU McLeod in Calgary had 12", but only one of each grievous, female jedi. only two each of ARC and Gunship, 6 of Tater, of which one lady took 4 and ran to the till before they could impose the one per customer rule (Dallas) :'( my niece will have to wait.

Met great guys out there and generally considerate. Nice to see some sharing out there, especially for the kids that were out and about.

Wal*mart was kinda of a bust, chinook was cool but crowded, tru was, well, tru. Kinda cool to see the new Star Wars models out at TRU, however, sice models seem to be a risky merchandising selection nowadays. Interesting in that, other than myself, only one other person walked with LEGO...biggest display, yet no one went near.
Title: Need Clonetroopers?
Post by: powerpig on April 02, 2005, 03:42:02 PM
Hey, if anyone needs clonetroopers, I can help you out.

No one but me bought anything today at my local Zellers. They put out about 12 dozens figures and... I swear to god, I am the only one who bought anything.

There are 10 clonestroopers currently hanging on the pegs. And another four unopened boxes of Collection 1 sitting near the display. It's breaking my fricken heart. They'll never sell here in Bathurst, NB. With a population of only 15,000, there just isn't the market for it.

Anyway, I'm willing to help out anyone who needs clones (or anything else, really). I'm not looking to make money. You pay me $8.97 per figure ($10.32 with tax) and shipping costs and I'll get you what you need.

Drop me a line at chris@powerpig.ca, or if you want, go to www.powerpig.ca and find my phone number and call me, and I'll see what I can do to help you out.

And you know, this helps me too. Cause if these figures don't sell, I'll never see a newer assortment here in town.

Chris

and Darth Tater.

Blue Guard is listed for purchase on the Toys r us Canadian web site.  If you select this item none are available for purchase.

Got lucky at Toys r us in Ajax-hardly anyone there.  The Toysrus in Whitby had a line up out the door - so I left and went to Ajax and got everything that was available that I wanted.  Arc Fighter , Darth Tater and the Talking Yoda are great items.

Picked up the remaining 25-32 figures at Walmart in Oakville - Trafalgar & Dundus. Had a bit more figures of 1-32 but not that much.

Then got Blue Royal Guard 23 & 37-40 from a local toy shop. Paid $15 each. But I had to have them all. That AT-TE Clone was COOOLLLL.

Then went over to Toys R Us in Oakville and picked up Starwars DVD Trivial Pursuit. Going to play later. Heard there some cool scenes of episode III on the DVD. Quigon ghost & Yoda? Out of ARC 170 ships. A ton of figures. 1-32.

Then went to get the ARC 170 at Toys R Us near Square One. And I got the last one. Sorry, but that is like the coolest ship for Episode III yet.

Just got back from TRU at Steeles near Yonge in Toronto.  They had tonnes of stuff including all first 32 figs.  They were running low on vehicles.  I asked the manager who was out and she said they had opened 60 cases of figures and not seen a single blue Royal Guard.  However someone else at the cash said he'd picked through cases days ago and we were just getting the "leftovers" today.  So who knows!

Zellers at Centerpoint Mall had as good a figure selection and were $1 cheaper than TRU.  So I bought all mine there.

Anyone found an AT-RT?

Went to lansdowne zellers today, and was surprised that there wasn't much of a lineup there. As reported in the BC forum, I found loads and loads of clones! (approx. 12+) I bought a lego clone walker, 4 clones (1 to open, 1 maybe to give away), and an Agen Kolar. A great find, but no blue guards.

I arrived at tru about 10 minutes before it opened... and obviously, there was a lineup. Once the store opened, many folks, including myself, dashed to the star wars section, where we were greeted with pegs upon pegs of jedi figs. No clones whatsoever. Some guy was lucky enough to get a vader though. No blue guards here either. :'( Either the employees were hoarding the clones for themselves, or the scalpers miraculously whipped all of 'em away before I got there. looks like no clone commander for me... yet.

AT-TR was available in the US today.  I think Hasbro just has a different mix in the case in Canada.

My understanding is that the commander and pilots were not in the assortments they received and they didn't get as many cases with the AT-TE gunner.  Most were 85173092C and 85174092A, figures 1-24.

Well the day started at 8AM when I went to chinook which had alot of goods but I only picked up Palpatine and Royal Guard(Red).   Good to meet and chat with Alexandertrooper this morning but I'll be heading back to chinook later next week for some goods I didn't get today for sure.

Then it was on to toys r us market mall where it seemed pretty picked over(cashier said they had like 20 people waiting outside this morning and there was almost a cat fight too).  But did manage to pick up Plo Koon, Polis Massan, Vader's Medical Droid, and Mas Amedda.  Also got Obi-Wan VS Grievous Bodyguard Battle Arena and Anakin & Obi-Wan Unleashed.

Hit zellers(market mall) and picked up Deluxe Anakin and Grievous then it was off to wal-mart.  Both wal-marts I went to had basically nothng, northland had a few and royal oak had nothing so then I went home.  Sat around for alittle bit then headed to NE toys r us and picked up Unleashed Grievous and Deluxe Palpatine.  They had a ton of lego at the northeast location but no 12 inch or large ships which was good because I was rapidly running out of cash.  

So all in all a good day for ROTS stuff had no problems good to see people out lovin the star wars especailly all the young kids  :-*.  Alittle side not was the other star wars figs I picked up VOTC Obi-wan, Yellow Animated Clone Trooper, don't worry Alexandertrooper I'll keep my eyes open for you too, and a Blue Animated Clone Trooper.  Again great day and now I can't wait till pay day too get some more  :-X.

My buddy and I decided to head over to the states for the Apr. 2nd release since we always miss out on the good stuff.  Really glad we headed over.  First we hit the TRU midnight madness and scored some US carded clones, some 12".   In the morning, lined up at Target for the Target exclusive Lava Vaders.  Since there were only a little more than 20 people waiting, we both scored two Lavas (48 available per store).  Also, we were both lucky to find the second exclusive, the clone plus cup (also tried looking for a second set at other Targets, but they were out.  Also got a couple of Battle Buddies clones (they look really cute).   On the way back to T.O., was able to score 4 more Tri-logo Clones at Zellers.

All the stores had a huge selection of figures from #1 to #32  (no blue guards)

Target:

Figures - $5.29US
12" - $19.99US
Lava Vadar - $12.00US
Clone & Cup - $9.99US
Battle Buddies - $5.99US

TRU:

Figures -  $5.99US (midnight madness $5.29US)
12" - $19.99US
Battle Buddies - $4.99US

Walmart:

Figures - $5.24US
12" - $18.77US

Big K (K-mart):

Figures - $6.99US (some red guards)
12" - $19.99US

KB:

Figures - $6.99US (lots of red guards)
12" - $25.99US

All in all, great toy run in the states.  If they had #33 to #40, would have been sweeter.  Would have provided more information, but my interest is in clone troopers.

First off I must say that TRU Canada sure put all other retailers, including it's american counterparts, to shame as far as available product went on April 2, 2005. Way to go!

I partook in the midnight madness sale at the Comic Book Shoppe in Ottawa, so I already had most of my single carded figures. I was waiting for April 2 to go down to the states to pick up all my vehicles and any store exclusives I could get my hands on. Well I was able to score 2 ARC-170s, 2 AT-RTs, 2 BARC Speeders and 2 Bogas. As far as exclusives went I was able to score 2 Target Lava Darth Vaders from 2 stores and surprisingly 1 Holographic Yoda from TRU. To my understanding these were only available April2/05 at the TRUs participating in the Midnight Madness sales and would be made available to all other TRUs April 8/05 with the purchase of $25 US or more. But here me and my buddy were, first in line when the manager unlocked the doors and tells all of the people in line that the first 12 people would receive a holographic Yoda for $9.99 US. What a good day.  :-X

The other awesome score I landed was an american carded "RED" ROYAL SENATE GUARD. Now I know that this guy is pretty common here in Canada and we haven't seen the blue version on canadian card, but in the USA it's the opposite. Every store I checked out had the blue versions with no reds in sight. That was until my buddy spotted a red guard in some guys shopping cart. I walked up and asked him if he'd seen "any"guards and he said no. JERK! Anyway a little later in the day I managed to score one and my buddy scored 2 of them. Nice. It seems the red will be the hardest to find figure south of the border.

All in all I though all of the american stores had more collections 1 & 2 wave 1 than anything else. Collections 1 & 2 wave 2 were very sparse. There was much more diversity and quantity here in Canada. Congrats to those canadians who found figures #37, #38, #39 and #40 out west. And kudos to those who found series 2 of the 12" assortment.

We did see the other two versions.  The clone is not the same as the carded clone. It come with a white shoulder pad and a logo shoulder pad.

Great Score!  I can't stop drooling!

I went to the Zellers @ Hillcrest Mall (Richmond Hill, Ontario).
There wasn't a single Clonetrooper.  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
My stomach is hurting.

I ended up getting Royal Guard (Red), Anakin, Chancellor Palpatine, Grievous Bodyguard, and Deluxe Grievous.

Anyone know of any stores that have clones? If so, I would be really greatful if anyone could share the info with me. Please, someone help put a smile back on my face... ?

Saw all the deluxe, sabers, ships and figs 1-32 today at local Zellers. Picked up Fisto and #2 Anakin. Lots of Clones, Red Guards, Battle Droids, SBDs, Obis, Anakins, Emperors, heck - a lot of everything! They had the Attack tix things but they just look plain stupid. Ships are nice (no ARC or Gunships) but at $30 a pop I'm gonna hold off....Unfortunately - no Unleashed.

I was at Zellers @ Centrepoint Mall (Yonge/Steeles) tonight right at closing time 8:50 PM.  Still a bunch of clones left.  I picked up another 3... was going to get 6... but my conscience got the better of me.  So there are at least 3 left... and could be more.... didn't have to look very hard.

The two TRUs I was at today were picked clean.

My first post.

I found 2 darth vader #11 at Zellers(BC) and I bought one for me and the other for my friend.  The Walmart had another darth vader #11.  They also had a couple of the red royal guards.  Sears(BC) also had 1 darth vader #11 for $9.99.

In Surrey, I went to the Toys R Us(BC) and they had just sold the last Darth Tater. :'(  Lots of other action figures though except for darth vader, imperial guard, and mon mothma.

Post by: old man ben on April 05, 2005, 09:15:32 AM
Anybody who shopped in the US certainly would have got a better deal price-wise.  I spoke to a friend who picked up all 32 figures, plus a few vehicles, and spent less than $200 dollars!  Even with a Lava Vader he figures he averaged $4 per figure (that's only about $5 CDN).  Even at $8.92 from Zellers or WalMart we paid nearly twice that!

Anybody near Ajax and Whitby could still find quite a few clonetroopers and other vital figures between tru in whitby and the zellers in Ajax as of monday morning anyhow

A short comment on the american prices.  5.29 min per figure x 30 figs.  lava vader. 12.99 = 171.69 and thats not including taxes or duty fees if you declare them.  vehicles ran basic prices 14.99 to 29.99.  i went to the states and i had 32 of 34 figures. so i didn't pick up many 3, but i got 4 lava vaders, 3 12", 3 unleashed, both big vehicles, target exclusives x3 = almost $400 so yes american's got a better deal price wise, but thats because they are disgustingly huge bloated corporate entities.  i know i should have bought canadian, but i wanted my lava vaders, and not pay 15% sales tax on money that i already paid 22% to keep.  

sorry about the rant...

So which evil empire is worse, the Canadian Government or Wally/Target? :P

Lots of folks had the $1 off coupons for Target and were able to get figures for cheaper.  They also got price adjustments when Target dropped prices the following day, bringing basic figures down to $3.99.  

Truthfully that's why I haven't bought much right now at all.  I'll happily pay Canadian prices for clones, but the rest will be so dirt-common that I'll wait until I'm in the US at some point this summer.  $$6.50 per fig including taxes and exchange and duty is still way, way cheaper than $10+ up here.  I can wait.  Possibly even wait for clearance prices to hit. ;)

Hey everyone, does anyone know if Zeller's (in toronto) would adjust my bill to match Wal-Mart's price of $7.44 a figure?  Also, will i need a wal-mart's flyer as proof or can i just show them a receipt from wal-mart?

Would be nice if I can claim back $50 for the basic figs...

I am really concerned about the piles and piles of ROTS figures that are sitting in stores here in Toronto right now.  If they don't sell down, and soon, are the retailers going to start cancelling deliveries of future waves?

I was in Zellers in Erin Mills Town Center today, and they must have put out even more stuff this week.  They now have two full island display units, plus three more full end of aisle fixtures full - mainly with the basic figures.  That's two more fixtures more than they had on April 2nd.

And Sears in the same centre has just brought in what I would call one case of 12 figures at $9.99 plus a few vehicles for their upcoming 15% off sale.  WalMarts everywhere have dropped their retail to $7.44 becasue they know they missed the boat on April 2, and are now trying to move out what bits they have.  Zellers and TRU are going to remain loaded unless they take some rpice action as well...and even then they have lots and lots of stock to move!

Well all of the Walmarts I have been to have barely had anything and what is there has been picked through totally no clones no Grevious or his guards no royal guards vaders etc etc. so I would say it is moving somewhat.

Keep in mind that the movie has not been released yet and as far kids go the hype is just not there yet they will be the ones to buy the rest hopefully this one will bring a larger crowd than the last 2 did. I have not seen TV add for anything but the voice changer or light sabers either and I have 2 kids so YTV and treehouse are on all the time here.

The only advertisement I have seen for the toys so far was in a zellers flyer the week they came out Walmart TRU etc have had nothing but the Vader voice changer in there I bet most kids don't even know these are out unless they have been to TRU etc lately.

I agree that future waves might be cancelled which could by why we have not seen any of the 32 + yet  I think the toys should have coincided more with the movie than just for collectors 2 months before.

it's all in the marketing and up here they are not even bothering.

I found a clone commander at Silver Snail yesterday but it was the last one they had...paid $10.99 for it.  I bumped into a Hasbro rep at TRU earlier today and asked her when the next wave of new basic figures was due out - but she claimed they haven't told her.  She suspects it will be closer to when the movie opens.

Another little interesting thing I noticed today.  On the Mustafar playset, they say you get two figures:  Obi-wan Kenobi and Darth Vader...yet it's not really a Vader figure as we would know him...rather an Anakin figure in a brown tunic.

anyone in the oakville area who are looking for 33-40 check out the comic connection on kerr.  they got in a few cases.  i bought one since i was missing everyone...   they are a lil more expensive 12.95 per fig.  but hey he isn't a major conglomerate who can afford to sell figures by the boatload.

They had the Mustafar set at Tru in Hamilton tonight also.  I bought one of the 3 that were on the shelf.  Also saw the Anakin/Vader 12'.  I may grab this when I go to CIII as there were lots in the stores when I popped down to Buffalo on Monday to get a holo Yoda.

Please, keep this thread spoiler free.  Any threads you want to talk about spoilers need to be mentioned in the *initial* subject header.  A line of space is not enough when it is a thread about toy finding, and not about movie discussion.  The posts relating to the spoiler have been removed to keep this area as spoiler-free as possible.

I truly wish that spoiler had been caught before I managed to accidentally see it. Thanks for nothing... you just ruined what should've been a major surprise for me after trying HARD to stay away from any big spoilers for over a year. I really can't describe how pissed off it makes me. And on a TOY SPOTTING thread for pete's sake...

And while I appreciate the moderator removing the offending message asap, that's it for me. No more hanging out at these boards until after the movie.  Some people just end up ruining it for others whether they realize it or not.

So long.

With it being Star Wars and all its popularity..i think you should had known better that this would have happend..after all the toys give alot awaty about the movies and we do get the toys a month prior, maybe they should be released on may 19th instead huh...but, we talk SW toys here and it is hard to stay away from spoilers with this new line.


its not the end of the world.

Yeah, if you want to stay completely spoiler-free no matter what, lock yourself in a dungeon from April until May 19, because even Star Wars.com can ruin stuff for you.

Your reaction was a little over-done, it's not the end of the world, as Valfar so logically put it.

Thanks MasterJay for bringing this thread back to what it should be, and the toys don't give away that much of the plot.  Grant it the battle arenas show the match ups in the movies the basics don't give away anything.  Saw the controller aswell at wal-mart in calgary.

Post by: ant9284 on April 14, 2005, 11:16:34 PM

I was at Sears today and saw the U.S packaged Barc Speeder for $19.99.  When the cashier scanned it on the register it showed $8.96.  He knew something was wrong so he scanned it on another register and the same amount came up.  So I got my Speeder for under $10.00.  I am sure they fixed the problem now because after I paid he went to the SW section and brought  all the vehicles to the counter.  I am not sure if this is the case for all stores but it doesn't hurt to give it a try.

Actually Zellers has a very small section.  Most of the figures are sold out, but they did have many preview figures and at least a Bail Organa.  Also had lots of Bogas and Bark Speeders.

TRU at Vic. Park and Lawrence:  Scored the only #35 Palpatine (Red Saber) this morning.  They also had one Exploding Grevious which is still up for grabs.

No signs of clone commanders or pilots.  Sorta disapointed since I was there yesterday when they had nothing.   I have suspicion that the stockboys are keepin' the clones to themselves but I don't blame them since I would do the same (one of each fig, not into army building....yet).  They seem to know what they're doing by 'facing' all the #6 clones to the front to reduce stock and perhaps give them reason to order more cases in the future.

Has anyone noticed that the second wave of figures aren't updated in their system?  At two different TRU locations I was able to score new figures but none of them would scan :S.

Note - Haven't seen AT-RT anywhere either

What makes you think the stockboys are keeping the clones?...just curious..i been to that store many times.

Post by: Canadian Jedi on April 17, 2005, 07:06:25 PM
When I was making my rounds looking for OTC USA figures - I used to go to that TRU all the time.  THe stock guys I worked with went out of there way to open boxes in the back and look for figures for me. And they did not collect at all.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Gam13it on April 17, 2005, 07:28:43 PM
They may or may not collect but I have nothing against them if they did.  Most likely bad timing on my behalf but like I said, I was there yesterday late afternoon when there were no signs of figures #33+.   This morning, I was there 5 mins after they opened today and there were #35 and #36 stocked right out front along side a wall of #6 clones.  Pretty collector friendly if you ask me.  

My suspicision is based on the fact that they seem to know their product and wouldn't mind keepin' a few for their own collections.  But then again, I'm just paranoid like always.

Note - I have no clue as to what the case ratios are and they simply may or may not have gotten any new clones @ all =(

Post by: Brantford. On. on April 18, 2005, 07:19:03 PM
I just got back from my local Zellers here in Brantford and they were packed with star wars goodies (three aisle ends full). They basically had every figure except the blue royal guard and vader. If you army builders are interested they had 13 clonetroopers, a ton of grevious guards, and about 2 racks of royal guards. They also had the boga, the speederbike, and obi+ani's jedi starfighters. I have no job so all I could grab was one figure. So I grabbed a plain old Anikin, a appropriate figure to kick off ROTS collecting. If you go leave a couple clones for the kids, and other collectors who haven't found one yet.

we left a couple the other night at the TRU at Lawrence and Vic Park

bought 2 as well.

Allmost every case has 1 or 2 clones in them which is why it has been so easy to find them there one case in particular that has 2 vaders and 2 clones that is how we got the 2 the other night and left 2 because they brought us out 2 cases.

tru in BC, not gonna say which one until I get a chance to post in the provincial forum had the Mustafar playset on Tuesday morning as well as the attix starter set.

I was quite impressed that the playset was only 39.99 but I personally don't think that it is that great a playset compared to some of those I have seen in the past

I just scored 2 cool mint ROTS store display posters from Zellers. Super colourful prints on heavy plastic stock, not cardboard. Aprox. 31"w  x  17.75"h

They had extras sitting there on a shelf next to the center isle display of new figures. I asked a store clerk if they needed them and she said no and gave 'em to me!

One has the Vader helmet/lava graphic and the other has a close-up of the Anakin and Obi-Wan lightsaber duel in lava.

Goes to show it never hurts to ask. :-*

New Rots Figures 33 to 44 - Here's the GOOD NEWS!  Silver Snail in Toronto was just unpacking a load of new cases and put out all of the following figures inclding the new AT-RT with Driver ($24.95):
#33 Clone Commander
#34 Clone Pilot
#35 Palpatine
#36 Exploding Grievous
#41 Articulated Clone Trooper
#42 Neimoidian warrior
#43 Wookie Warrior
#44 Destroyer Droid - all in US Packaging

They did not get in figs 37, 38, 39, or 40 in this shipment, but said they would be getting them again.

Now the Bad News!  They have bumped up the pricing on these new figures to $12.99, whereas all the first 32 figures were and still are at $10.99.

Silver Snail usually sells at the Toy Show at the International Center - which is this Sunday...maybe they will have these there?

New Rots Figures 33 to 44 - Here's the GOOD NEWS!  Silver Snail in Toronto was just unpacking a load of new cases and put out all of the following figures inclding the new AT-RT with Driver ($24.95):
#33 Clone Commander
#34 Clone Pilot
#35 Palpatine
#36 Exploding Grievous
#41 Articulated Clone Trooper
#42 Neimoidian warrior
#43 Wookie Warrior
#44 Destroyer Droid - all in US Packaging

They did not get in figs 37, 38, 39, or 40 in this shipment, but said they would be getting them again.

Now the Bad News!  They have bumped up the pricing on these new figures to $12.99, whereas all the first 32 figures were and still are at $10.99.

Silver Snail usually sells at the Toy Show at the International Center - which is this Sunday...maybe they will have these there?

Yep, they were all there. Only needed 41-44, they still had alot left when I left at 7:30pm. Lots and lots. The only figure that might run in short supply is the Articulated Clone Trooper. Much better than the #6 clone trooper. Anyway, thats again Ross.

Chinook hobbies got in new deluxw figures and AT-RT walkers.  The Deluxe are Yoda on that bug thing, Flying Clone Trooper (jet pack), Vader medicle table and Droid ship.  All very cool.

Wal-Mart is now getting the #33 to #40 waves.  I found them today at the Place D'Orleans Wal-Mart.  See the Ontario forums for more if you're from that area.

Post by: Gam13it on April 23, 2005, 06:42:11 PM
Yup, I can confirm Barry's post.  I never would have 'thunk' it but Wal-Mart is now my favorite store again!  My Wal-Mart in Toronto (Eglinton and Vic Park) had a ton of clones (#6, #34, #35)  One person was there before me and they had picked out quite a few but I still managed... 1 Pilot, 3 Clone Commanders and get this: 10 Clones at $7.44!!!    No signs of #37-#40 though

From the time I left (4:30 pm) they still had;
3-4 Clone Commaders,
4-5 Regular Clones,
4-5 Exploding Grevious
4-5 #35 Palpatine
and like 10 Clone Pilots!! (I swear! I wasn't too impressed by the fig so I'm just gonna keep the one I got MOC)


If anyone needs anything I'll try to make a last effort to pick them up, otherwise... FREE FOR ALL!!

Yep. I can confirm that they still have some of them. However, when I left they had:
1 - Clone Commander
5 - Exploding Greivous' & Palpatines
1 - Mas Amed
1 - Polis


No others. But lots of #6 Clone Trooper & Vader.

Also like to note, the Walmart at Winston Churchill & 401 did have 32 - 36. But the one in Milton had Nada.

Post by: HunterCJ on April 26, 2005, 11:00:14 PM
Must say was very disappointed in my walmart run last night.   :-[
Hit 4 walmarts in the durham region which had new cases of figures, but not one clone commander to be had!!  All the others were still available.  Haven't seen any posts from collectors here from the area with scores, so makes me start to think one word:  scalpers!!
The most frustrating was in Whitby where they updated the midway island with what I was told 4 cases of this wave and NO commanders at all, yet several of palpatine, grevious and even pilots to be had.
Usually I have good success in toy runs over the years and never seem to get annoyed becuase yes, after all just a piece of plastic, but I was simply pissed off!  (Also due to a long day at work didn't help any)
Anyway I am hoping this is pattern that does not keep up with future figures.
Good to all snowtroopers in there searches.

PS- Huge thanks to membraneman you made a nice score for my collection that has brigtened my week!   :D

Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: jjreason on April 29, 2005, 01:05:33 PM
Hi Jedi Historian, we're just using the Hasbro numbering system to differentiate between the carded clone you can find right now (which is #6 in the series of 56 basic figures they're putting out for ROTS this year), and #41. The numbers are on the bottom of the bubbles - to see the number of any figures you might have carded, just look at the left edge of the package (from the front).

Here's a link to a thread in which 2 copies of the numbered list are displayed as a picture - an older list, and the finallized list.

This morning on my way to work I stopped by my TRU (VicPark and Lawrence) just to find TRU's Holo Yoda @ $14.99 as well as the Republic Gunship for $39.99!

I only picked up the gunship (unfortunately the one and only one)  but left the ARC-170 there.  The Holo Yoda was a lil to expensive for my liking and their were only about 10 pegs full of them!!   (as of 11:30 am)

I cant wait to unleash this beast as well as all my clones troopers!!  (sole reason why I haven't opened anything)

Thanks for clearing that up, I heard that from an employee at me TRU and was wondering why the other stores had been putting them out early (my conspiracy theory being that the managers wanted to sell out of them at 14.99 a pop before they had to give any away on the 14th - I'm glad that's not the case).

Anyone in the GTA still looking for #6 clones (or any figures 1-32) should head over to TRU at Markville Mall (Hwy 7 & McCowan).  As of 6 PM tonight, they had three different areas of the store where the pegs were STOCKED.... I counted at least 15 clones (in the 2 sections further back from the entrance)... and there were probably more.  So if anyone is still hurting for a clone... get in there!

Sadly... after looking through dozens of pegs, not a single figure above 32 to be found.  I'm just praying to the toy gods that these figures become easier to find as the film gets closer to release...

The Bay in Southgate mall here in Edmonton has figures 1 - 32 as well as the ARC 170 fighter and the ROTS Gunship for $40.00 each.  You'll have to ask the lady working there to get access to some of the figures as they are still in the stock room.  She was kind enough to look for me and managed to get me a QD clonetrooper:)  The basic figures there are $8.97.  They also had a 12" Clonetrooper as well as the Ultimate Villain Anakin/Vader figure.

Found a few ROTS figures at a toy shop here in town. They have 1 Clone Commander between $15-20 (can't remember exact price), 1 Red Guard $12, 1 Clone Trooper (didn't see price) Also saw a 12" Clone Trooper. Looks as if someone bought these from TRU and sold them to the shop.

They also have a few animated figures. 1 Red ARC $20, 1 Clone Trooper Captain *Red* $20, 1 Mace and 1 Grevous were I believe also $20 each as well.

Seems to me like their hoarding. Just my opinion.

Went on a road trip from Whitby to Hamilton and got some great Star War toy finds.  

On the way to Hamilton I stop off at the TRU at Victoria Park and Lawrence and picked up a couple of Holo Yodas - plenty to go around for everyone - don't worry when your local TRU gets their shipment you will get one.  

Picked up a couple of CIII Vaders from shrmarboba. Thanks again for letting me see your CIII pictures and your great Star Wars collection.

Went over to the TRU by Limeridge Mall in Hamilton and got a Gunship.  THey just got their shipment in. They also have the Holo Yodas.  They may not be out on the store floor, but they are in the back of the store.  Great service at this TRU, very, very helpful staff.

Limeridge Mall Toys etc. had (2) # 42 and (2) #43 and they had (2) Clone Commander.  $14.99 ea.

Happy hunting.

Just another thought I had...if you want a Republic Gunship or Arcship from TRU...do not ask for it by name.  Their computer will find nothing.  Ask for a Star Wars-E3 Large $39.99.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Canadian Jedi on May 02, 2005, 09:59:39 PM
Whitby TRU got in 12 Arc ships. I got the last one.  They did not get any Gunships.  I did find out that they have on order 1700 Star Wars E3 Large for all of the TRUs across Canada.  So sooner or later there will be more than enough to go around.

The AT-RT with the driver is available at the Zellers in Hillcrest Mall in Richmond Hill, ON (Yonge and Carrville).  I think it was around the $19-20 range.  I looked at it and placed it back on the shelf.  Not my cup of tea.

Durham, Ontario find:

My Big find today.....as I was driving home....who passes me....but R2-D2 in a Pepsi Van!!!! I got the Pepsi guy to roll down his window and told me where his distination was: Price Choppers on brock.  So I drove ahead and talked with manager before it arrived.  I am not holding my breath on getting this but it was great to see one.  Pepsi guy said you can not buy them direct from Pepsi. It is the same height as a real R2-D2-probably bigger and you can put ice in it and Pepsi.  The Sobeys and Price Choppers in the area have been getting them - they also have been disappearing alot because they are on wheels.  Worth the drive to this Price Choppers they have a big display with Chips, Pop and Star Wars music playing and a fog machine and of course MY MY MY R2-D2 please let it be MINE.  Also has Star Wars toys hanging from ceiling.

If anyone can hook me up with one of these - I see beer and burgers in my back yard for all Snowtroopers who can make it to my house.

Happy Hunting.

Post by: Amps on May 04, 2005, 10:41:29 PM
Did another tour of duty tonight. First, the stores where I couldn't find anything.


-TRU (Eglington/Hwy 10) was a bust, only had maybe one or two #35 palpatines and the rest were the regular pegwarmers.
-Zellers (Square One) was the same as TRU, not even any Gunships or ARC fighters.


Now the stores that paid off.

-Walmart (Square One) had several #35,  #36 and Clone Pilots. They also had  tons of Clone Troopers, like 10+. Picked up 2 Pilots and 3 Clones in preparation for when I find a Gunship.
-Hobby World (Square One)...........BLUE GUARD x2!  :o  I picked up one for myself and considered grabbing the other to trade to a fellow snowtrooper but at $11.99, I wasn't sure anyone was up for it. I got mine just before closing so if you get there at opening they'll probably still have the other.

BTW, looks like Walmart got a big shipment in tonight and according to the stock boy there should be a lot of ROTS comming in as well.

yeah i was there when chinook and hobbies put out the fresh cases.

they only got like 1 case f 41-44

there were two other collectors waiting on the cases and i was just fortunate enugh to hit that box first

there were only two 41 super articulated clones and my brother and i both got the only two

and only a couple nemdian and wookies and we both each got one of those too.


and we left the crappy destroyer dorids sitting there...

and i aso had no interest in the palpatine/commander wave, you guys do know Wal-marts in calgary have had these for several weeks now right? i got them all a couple weeks ago. for three dollers less a figure than chinook charges too.

had to have my clone today though..., but the wookie and nemodian are pure crap imo, especially the wookie. the clone is nice but i wish he was clean with no scuff marks.

Went to walmart up on Upper James in Hamilton, and also the one at Eastgate square. Nothing new there. They  both did have the Clone Trooper #6.

Went to TRU and they had the ones I was looking for, #33 - Clone Commandar, #38 - At-Te Gunner. I also picked up the Clone Trooper delux. The one with the jetpack.

TRU looked like they just finishing stocking the shelves as I walked in. So I was lucky..bout time..lol. And both walmarts you could tell people already went through the stock.

I talked to a lady at TRU and she said the HALO yoda didn't come in yet, and I could go to the service desk and ask when, but man there was a lot of people returning items so I didn't wait..lol

All I need to finish off my clones are #41, and #49. I'm not getting all the figs, just the ones I want.

Just in case anyone is looking...

Walmart in Milton had 8 Clone pilots, 8 Clone Commanders, 6 Darth Vaders, and a couple exploding Greivious'.   They are actually on display when you walk into the store.   Just before the row of cash register's  start.

And still no TATER   ::)

Walmart Square One at 8 a.m. this morning had a huge bin of figures piled up, and after a great deal of sifting I located my own RT-TE Gunner.  Also saw Mas Amedda, Vader's Medic droid, Polis, etc.  Lots of new stuff but just a terrible to present it...most cards are going to end up bent and/or on the floor.

Post by: Amps on May 09, 2005, 11:11:21 AM
Was at Walmart Square one as well this morning and managed to grab 37, 38 and 39. Also got to meet Old Man Ben  :D

Nothing at Zellers or TRU though.

Made a trip to Niagara Falls/Buffalo last weekend. Went to about 5 targets, 3 walmarts, 3 TRU, 3 KB Toys. Was able to find all figures 1-36 (but no Blue Guard), also got the Exclusive Target Trooper, and found figures 41-44. No sign of 37-40 though....and didn't see wave2 of the Deluxe figs either. I didn't see a gunship anywhere, but managed to snag that at Zellers in T.O.

Overall - there's a lot more SW stuff down in the US. Lots of blankets, lawn chairs, party supplies, food products, etc. Lots more FUN!

What's up with Canada?

The bin was just outside of McDonalds and it looked as though there was 1 or 2 cases of 37-40 total. Between me and Old Man Ben we got 2 Gunners and then 1 each of 37, 39 and 40. Spoke to the toy manager soon as it opened and he said that they had just got those figures in the night before.

This afternoon, TRU in Woodbridge had their Holo Yoda's out on the pegs for $14.99...but nothing else looked new.  Oh yes, they had Darth Tater's again.

TRU in Brampton - Hwy 7 and Hwy 410 - had several of the second wave of deluxe figures - I picked up a Yoda on Can-cell, vulture droid, and Clone trooper with jet backpack...no sign of the Vader operating table though.

Nothing at Zellers or Sears Bramalea.

how you managed to get those figures in that bin is a miracle! i saw a whole bunch of clone commanders and clone pilots, but i already have them and i didn't want to trash wal-mart hahaha.  i also saw a mas amedda, but i only really wanted the at-te gunner.   i commend you both!

Found a Palpatine #35 and a Vader's Medical Droid at Hamilton TRU tonight.  Also got an interesting bit of info from one of the managers there (I used to work there)... they have about 40 cases of figures in their warehouse, but need to wait until the existing stock on the shelves/ racks deplete a bit to put them out.  So, hopefully by the time the 19th rolls around, there will be a ton of figures sold.  Keep Friday, Saturday and Sunday open as shopping days ;)

Oh, and don't bother hiding stuff (some people around here said they've done that)... they clean the store at the end of the night... they bring in a cleaning staff at night.

Just as an addendum to my previous post, the manager also said there seems to be three types of boxes - Collection 1, Collection 2 then a "mixer" of sorts.  The packaging for the "mixer" is never consistent... it always has something different, but always something from the harder to find group of figures.  As an example, he said he had seen a "clone with its helmet off" which I assume means the AT-TE gunner.

A quick East-end GTA report here.

No sign of the Gunner at Cedarbrae Mall, though Zellers still had the rest of the wave.
Found Holo Yoda at Pickering TRU, they still had 5 or so when I left.
Found AT-RT at Pickering Town Center Zellers... they had a bunch.

That's about all I found of note and I checked Morningside WM, Pickering WM (by TRU), Zellers at Salem Rd. and Hwy. 2 as well.

Was at Markville TRU (5:30PM) and found the second wave of deluxe figures.  They had all four deluxe figures - Yoda on Can-cell, vulture droid, Clone trooper with jet backpack and Vader operating table.  They had a large quantity and I picked two Clone troopers with jet backpack.  They are at $14.99.  

They also restocked Darth Tater, they had 9 left when I left.

All 2nd wave deluxe figures were out at Yonge/Eglinton TRU also.  Many, many clone pilots and commanders there too, but I picked up the only Polis Massan and Vader's Med. Droid they had out.

Sears at the Carlingwood mall in Ottawa had figures #33 to #40. Unfortunately only singles. Finally I got my second AT-TE gunner! Whew!

The Comic Book Shoppe on Clyde ave got in 10 cases of Col 1 wave 4. So there are plenty of Clone Troopers #41, Nemoidian Warriors #42, Wookie Warriors #43 and Destroyer Droids #44. Also restocks of figures #33 to #36. All are on US cards.

Oh Yah! These cases also contain Anakin Skywalker #02 with the corrected Dooku sabre in place of the glove gripped red sabre from the initial wave. A must have for the variant hunters.

Found Wave 2 deluxe today at TRU Sherway. I grabbed a Vader (Operating table) and Canadian Jedi scooped up the other 2 Vaders, 3 Clones (with jetpack) and a Vulture droid. Also found a lone Jetpack Clone at TRU Mississauga that I scooped up.

From talking to warehouse manager at TRU Mississauga, it looks like they have lots of unopened cases in the warehouse and are just waiting to put them out soon.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Canadian Jedi on May 11, 2005, 03:54:11 PM
Thanks to Amps I now have a Blue Guard and all the Deluxe Figures I wanted from this wave.

My favorite part about going to Mississauga TRU , besides meeting AMPS, was that they have a Star Wars ROTS Display which is a life size ROTS action figure case.  Both Amps and I got in and got our pictures taken with a FX light saber - for free!   This is the only TRU that I know of that has this - so if you do not know what I am talking about head over there it is worth the trip and take your camera.

After my visit with AMPS I managed to get in a visit to Burger King -they have 5 of 31 available.  Picked up a Hamburger and a Falcon.  Then I went to Woodbridge TRU and they were fully stocked of the Deluxe Figures and they have an FX saber out for everyone to try-there are still 2 Darth Vader FX sabers left.  I picked up 2 more #38 Gunners at this TRU.

Happy Hunting.

Went to the Sherway Gardens area tonight in GTA (8-9pm). Was at Zellers, Bay, Sears, Walmart and TRU.

Only Deluxe wave 2 I found was Yoda (TRU - I passed). Saw many Red Royal Guards (about 8 between Zellers and Bay). Sears had Mas Ammeda, Polis Massan and Vader Med Droid. (1 each left after I bought 1 of each).

Saw just about all figs (1-40) over course of 5 stores except the AT TE gunner (and Blue guard of course). Walmart had lots of #6 clones as well as pilots and commanders if anyone is still looking for army builders. They had at least 10 of each.

Also saw the fabrics at Walmart - very cool. Strange as it sounds I think I might sew some pillows.... :P

Post by: darth_keg on May 13, 2005, 12:07:17 PM
thanks man, just got back from doing a run to costco and coudn't find them.  guess that's why...

While I was at walmart I notice that they had a new electronic Vader lightsaber.  Old lightsaber in ROTS packaging at least.  It was on the overstock shelf so I got one down.  It's not the blue/red one.  Also the playskool soft sabers are $14.94 and zellers has them too.

Anyone who is interested, I asked at work (TRU) and it will be manager's discretion to price match walmarts flyer price of $7.44 for the 3 3/4 inch figs.  Because it's a regular price not a sale price, TRU doesn't, by policy, have to match it.  Also, if they do choose to price match, they are then not obligated to give the holo yoda out with the purchase of three figs.  I'm warning everyone now, that unless something comes down from H/O, each store will probably handle it differently.  I spoke to my dept manager this morning and he said he's will to do both to get rid of as many basic figs as we can.

 :D

Yes, the Costco in Newmarket doesn't have the F/X lightsabers.

Went to Zellers in Hillcrest Mall in Richmond Hill and the had some of the Jedi Force playskool line there.  Including, chewie, luke, droids, anakin and yoda.  they also had one jedi force scale x wing instock.  figs are $10.  x-wing was $20.  darth taters too...$10. and the playskool soft sabers are only $11.97 compared to $14.92 at walmart.

If anyone in the Richmond Hill area doesn't know this already there is a TRU going in on Hwy 7 with the rest of the big box stores.  Opens in June i think.

We have been price matching at 2 different TRU all they need is a reciept within a certain date takes em less than 3 mins to ring it all in.

The cashiers don't even question it as a matter of fact we had more touble with Zellers.

If anyone in the Richmond Hill area doesn't know this already there is a TRU going in on Hwy 7 with the rest of the big box stores.  Opens in June i think.

Whereabouts?  Near the Yonge and 7 region?  That would be great!  I zoom-zoom on Highway 7 almost everyday!

yep on 7.  I'm pretty sure it's going to be between yonge and bayview on the noth side somewhere.

it will be manager's discretion to price match walmarts flyer price of $7.44 for the 3 3/4 inch figs.  Because it's a regular price not a sale price, TRU doesn't, by policy, have to match it.

as far as i understand it, I don't work at the service desk so I don't have to deal with it, they will price match so long as it's in a flyer, but don't have when it says "everyday price" ,cause it's not a sale.  they do it for good customer service and get the sale over the competition.

I just found what I think is one of the coolest figures yet. It's the Darth Vader on the Operating Table figure. I got it at the TRU in the Markville Mall.... There was one left, when I left...

According to a sign on their doors, Toys'R'Us will price match on any advertised item as long as you bring in a flyer to prove the item is advertised as such.  It doesn't have to be "on sale", but they won't match limited quantity store opening specials.
So when Zellers flyer was out a few weeks ago, showing their regular price on the basic figures was $8.92, then TRU matched it right away - altho one store clipped out the ad from my flyer so I wasn't able to use it again.
This weekend I intend to go back with my bills on the deluxe figures I bought and have them reduced from $14.99 to their own advertised price of $11.97!

Re: Price matching at TRU.  

I go to the same TRU that Moogly does and they would not do a price match for me unless they called the store and confirmed that Walmart had the exact item in stock.  As a result I have not bought any of my figures at TRU except for the #38 Gunner.  In contrast Zellers, I have found, will match Walmart in a heart beat.

I've decided to start collecting.

Yesterday i found last chewbacca at TRU, almost had to wrestle some 8 year old for it.

Last night went to burger king to get some toys and turns out it closed 20 minutes early. Me and friend were angry so we ripped down the wookie they had sticking on a fence, unfortunatly my friend has it on his wall and i dont.

Today went down to walmart with 15 dollars in nickels and bought a darth vadar.

Pretty happy nonetheless. Really want that OTC yoda at TRU but 15.99 I have not.

One more note on price matching, WalMart has a 2 page ad in their Toronto store flyers last night on alot of Star Wars merchandise, including the basic figures at $7.44...so now you have a full color page showing the ROTS packages that you can take to TRU for price matching today - especially for those who have to buy 3 figures to get their free Yoda.

TRU in Hamilton was putting out TONS of new figs today at 12:00ish.  I got one Tank Gunner, saw one Polis Massan, one Vader on the medical table, a few Pilots and Clone Commanders.  I think there was one Mas Amedda and a few Palpatines in red.... speaking of which, anyone else out there think Palpy in red sucks when it comes to articulation?  His arms barely move... so much for dueling with his lightsaber.

Westside TRU had all of the Holo Yodas on the floor.  I think you may just be able to purchase it for 14.99.  I didn't get one though.  As for 33 and above, I have seen no sign of them.  I went to Southside TRU, Westside TRU, and the stores in WEM.  There was a scalper store in WEM that had the 33 and the SA Clone but for $40.00 :(  Sheesh.

Well I guess I better register. I've been missing out!

I'm actually glad to hear there is such a policy.  As a kid I remember how much it sucked when you couldn't find a cool figure (I never did find "Flash" from the first GI Joe 3.5" line).  Getting to the store first should pay off, but if the first guy in cleans the place out, what fun is that?

I finally found a clone commander last week by hitting the store first thing. There were 2 and I was torn about taking the second one. I didn't want a scalper to get him, but I also felt bad taking the only 2. Luckily a fellow collector showed up who had been missing out too. It was great to see the look on his face when I handed him one.

(BTW "Fort Mc-guy", Chinook had tons of 'em, and pilots too, that day. Hope you filled out those ARC170's!)

I'm in Miami at the moment.  
Went to TRU next to Dadeland Mall - they had the normal range, up to number 34 or so.   Nothing special.
Went to the Target there as well.  Nothing special on the shelves, but a few of the higher numbers than at TRU.  So, I asked an assistant if there was anything in the stock room.  She went in to have a look and brought me out two number 41 troopers, and a couple of pilots.   Very nice of her, so I took them all.   The troopers are very cool figures, and at US$4.99 the price was also great.   No At drivers though.

Was at Upper Canada mall in Newmarket this afternoon.
Zellers had the ARC ship (sorry, can't remember its proper name), but no special figures.
TRU had both DV on the table and the Clone Trooper with the jet-pack.  I must admit that for just under $12 each, they are not badly priced.   But can someone explain to me why DV's face is so "brown"?  That color does put me off a bit.
Wal-mart just up the road had nada.    In fact, their selection was the worst I've seen.

Got my wife to stop by at the TRU in Hong Kong.  She said the TRU store is smaller and the ROTS section is smaller than in Canada but it is nicer.  She said that all of the figures up into the 50's are displayed in a case for all to see.  I gave her my entire wish list to her and she said she could not find one figure on the list.  In fact she ran into an American that was there searching the pegs for figures and the American could not find anything on his list.  I thought it would be a hot bed of Star War figures but as I was told earlier in another thread - Hong Kong is not the place to get Star Wars Toys.

I've posted on the trade section that I'm looking for one, but nobody seems to have an extra.

Darth Keg - would have said hello if I'd known.   Next time?!   And thanks for the dlx.   No, I haven't seen the movie yet (who knows when that will be), but thanks also for the bit of info about the head.   Strange from my point of view, but.........

Only visit today was WM at Major Mac & Bayview - once again, they had nada.

Oh, by the way, forgot to report that I visited Planet X last week (opposite the WM mentioned above).   You can keep it; no room, no selection and NO service of any kind or description.   They'll need a lot of luck if they hope to keep going - don't they understand how important customer relations is to a small shop like theirs.   Makes me wonder.    ::)

We have seen lots of pilots and commanders the pilots being the more common one even more so now than the #6.

Something I have noticed in the few stores we have hit this last week is that they are getting bare half stocked shelves all over the place this is a good sign there is hope for lots of these figures to be going around this summer.

this movie is really taking off in a big way everyone is talking about it all over I hope the hype stays up.

Ya I agree!
The movie is such a hit right now, and the figures are being bought up so fast.  We're actually seeing newer waves of figures, and around the same time as the US too!  It's a great sign.

Re: Upandatom,   #41 of the basic series is a super articulated clean white trooper.  The Target exclusive is the same fig with a different card back and has the same red emblem as the 12" trooper.

To sort of answer your question, yes we will be getting #41 in Canada, not just at TRU, but at walmart and Zellers too I would imagine.

And NO we will not be getting the Target exclusive in Canada.  Wouldn't be much of an exclusive then.

Don't pay $20 for a figure that you can get at Walmart or the Superstore for $8 in a couple of weeks.  Be patient, they will come. :D

Awesome news.  Although, I've been scouring both my local TRU's, 4 different walmarts, 3 zellers' and even sears and haven't even laid eyes on an AT-TE gunner, I don't have much faith that I'll track down a SA trooper...
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: darth_keg on May 23, 2005, 10:17:23 AM
If you want to try to get a tank gunner, go into the store of your choice and find the person in the toy dept, TRU find the person in the boys dept if there is one scheduled.  If they are agreeable to opening a case of figures to put out, ask them to look for a "B" case (ends with the letter B).  That is the only case that has the tank gunner and there is only 1 in the case.

Good Luck.

Patience is the key. I was about to give up on clone commanders and pilots, but then I found some. Since then I've seen a few commanders on the racks and pilots are all over the place.

The tank gunner is tough, but I found one at the front of the peg in the late afternoon, and there were enough empty pegs that I don't think it had just been stocked.

Keg, I remember you saying that earlier about the Gunner being in the 'B' box, I've tried asking at both TRU's with no luck, although the people were great and actually went to look, just couldn't find any 'B' boxes.  How often do the stores get more stock?  Thanks for all your help!
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Darryl811 on May 23, 2005, 06:56:19 PM
The problem with finding this AT-TE Gunner is that it is a Collection 2 asst, which are produced in half the ratio as the Collection 1 asst's, which makes the case hard to find.  In addition to this the figure is one per case, and on top of this it's an army builder, so who ever finds more then one will probably take them all.  Not to mention it is a very nice figure so most kids an collectors want it.  For all these reasons the figure is in very high demand.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: darth_keg on May 23, 2005, 07:39:58 PM
Unfortunately there is no set shipping schedule for the figures or what cases will be shipped to what stores. It's just a matter of when the warehouse puts them on the truck.  I know they hold back on shipping all of the cases they recieve so the stores to have tons of overstock to deal with.  The easiest thing to do is to call TRU each monday and ask what day they are getting a truck (or days if they are getting more than one).  Call back at about 4 or 5 on the day of the truck and by that time they should know if any new cases of ROTS figures arrived and which letter they are.

I was at Wal-Mart and found a bunch of #41-44!  The #41 clone was camoflauging behind a #6 clone, I almost missed it! And I rummaged through a bunch of figures and luckily found another one!  

While I was there I counted:
2 Super Articulated Clones (I got them both)
2 Neimoidian Warriors (these look great! but i had to resist, i think i'm already over budget =P)
4 Wookie Warriors (got one for my cousin, the wookie lover)
4 Destroyer Droids

I also found at least four Anakin#2 w/ Dooku lightsaber, I grabbed one of those too!

I came THIS close to a gunner today.  I was at the TRU at St. Laurent here in Ottawa and the Hasbro rep was actually stocking the Star Wars display, I asked her if she had any cases marked 'B' (thanks again, Keg) and she went into the back to check, and actually came out with a 'B' case.  I thought my search was over!  But, when I looked in the box, one figure was missing, you can guess which one it was.  She said the employees weren't supposed to do that, I hope I didn't get anyone in trouble!  

Keg, do you know which case has the SA troopers in 'em?

Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: darth_keg on May 28, 2005, 01:07:50 AM
From what I understand the Anakin with dooku saber is now shipping with the SA Clone wave.  It is actually a corrected version so that is all that will be shipped from now on.  Look for it at your local Walmart, Zellers, TRU when they start putting out the 41-44 wave.

The blue saber #35 Palpatine never shipped to Canada (on a Tri-logo card).  The only place that you will find it is at comic and collector shops that shipped in the US versions.  It was the early version and has also been corrected to the red version that Canada recieved en mass on the tri-logo card.  Expect to pay an extra couple of bucks for it either that route or the ebay route as everyone now knows that it is no longer available.

hope that helps

Just so you know it's not a lot better in the USA.  I spent 5 days down in Balticmore Washington DC area - hit at least 8 WalMarts, one TRU, one Target, and even tried K.Mart and Kohls.  Aside from WM and Target who were priced at $5.99 and $5.24, the prices were high - Kohl's was $9.99 for basic figures!
Even KB Toys had them "on sale"  for for 2 for $12.  Most stores had only up to #44 (and sold out of the Articulated Clone), many were worse than that...still being loaded up with the 4 preview figures.
I did manage to find the WalMart Exclusive Early Bird Package at one store only and Kohl's had one of their exclusive Barc Speeder with extra Wookie Warrior included.
I also found one only "Stass Allie" Deluxe bike set and the Striped Variant of the Vulture Droid...and picked up two extra AT-TE Tank Gunners and a Blue Royal Guard (if anyone is looking for one) as traders.

I waas really disappointed not to find anything really new....particularly since there were supposed to be new basic figures out on May 15th.

Wal-Mart here had 3 cases of 41-44 out this morning. 2 cases were already opened and had a look through them, and just found 1 Neimoidian Warrior and 1 Destroyer Droid in each of the two cases. The third case was still sealed when I left. No sign of the SA Clone Trooper or Wookiee Warrior.

The old trick still works!!!
Was in the USA earlier today trying to get any of the Tarkin wave (found none) and the elusive AT-TE gunner (found none). As usual the employee in the toy departments refuse to go look in the back and see if anything is kicking around.
Then my girlfriend suggest she asks the toy guy herself. Of course, she's a looker. So the guy comes right back from the backstore with the gunner.
yeahhhhhhh that's my girl!!!!  :-X
So be nice to your wife or girlfriend and take with you for your next toy hunt and you might get lucky (in getting the figure you want....not the...oh..nevermind!!)
If you DON'T have a girlfriend (it's probably because you  collect SW...JK  ;D ) but a sister or cute friend should do.

Also found (by myself this time) a Cantina 3-pack with Kitick Keedkak, wuher and Evazan on clearance for $10 at Kmart. And a few Clones #41.

Does anyone know if its still possible to find Sneak Preview figs anywhere in general retail in Edmonton?  I don't want to pay 12$ for a replacement Grievous.

Check your local Superstore. Mine in Calgary seems to have received these instead of the regular ROTS assortments

Walmart in Hamilton (Upperjames, the smallest of the ones around here) had not three, not 2, but ONE peg of figures. It looked like it was just a case full, obi wan#1, anakin#2 with dooku saber, a few palpatine #35s and one of each of wookie warrior, destroyer droid, and neimoidian warrior, with no SA clones. After a few seconds of wondering what happend here, I got the wookie and neimoidian.

Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Nerf Herder on June 01, 2005, 04:57:10 PM
I was in the Yonge/Steeles area today, and they had nothing new at:

TRU - plenty of figures, but basically the same old same old.
Zellers - 30 or so figures, but again nothing that you haven't seen many times already.

And just for a laugh, I popped into "Wizzards" (or whatever its called), which claims to be a comic-book shop and also sells action figures, ie SW stuff.  They also have a sign in the SW section that says something like "the prices of SW figures is determined by the demand/popularity of the individual figure".    Which the owner/operator translates to mean "I can charge any price I want, irrelevant of what the figure is actually worth".    Examples: basic EP1 Darth Maul for $40 ; EP1 Destroyer Droid $45 ; Luke & Rancor $90 and so on.   All I can say is "Wow, where do I sign up?".    :o

And I haven't been to that shop for over two years, for the exact reasons mentioned above.   And now I know I won't have to go back for another two years!    ???     BTW, they had only about 6 ROTS figs, all for $12.99 and all peg-warmers everywhere else.

Darth_Keg, with taxes and shipping the grand total was $13.38, not bad considering you cant find it in any of the stores, atleast none of the ones i went too.  And if you figure in gas its probably the same.

Just to let you know, to date I don't believe the Blue version of #23 has shipped on a Canadian card.  U.S. only, hence you will only find him at places that had their figures shipped up from Hasbro in the U.S.  TRU, Walmart, Zeller etc all carry the Canadian Hasbro merchandise and will only have the red #23. (unless they change it but that would seem to be a mute point now)

Welcome VLD!!

Unfortunately you will be needing to go to a collector shop to get the blue guard.(silver snail, planet x but not the one in richmond hill if you listen to rotaxxx.  there is another in scarborough.  call them first, if they have it, they will hold it)

As for #11 Vader.  Go the Walmart/Zellers/TRU near you and if can find an employee willing to help you out as for a "C" case to be opened as it has a vader in it.

For the #'s 37-40 (medical droid, tank gunner etc.)  you will need to ask for a "B" case to be opend.  Only one of each in that case also.

Good Luck and enjoy the hunt.

Found an Anakin with the Dooku variation lightsaber at Ancaster Wal-Mart tonight.  They also had some Wookie Warriors, and about 3-4 Neimoidian warriors.  I didn't want 'em, so they're up for grabs.

I don't know much about the variations in the Wookie Warriors... this one was beige with the tri-language package, if that helps anyone.

Darth Keg. Any chance you can tell us what else is in the case with #41-44 and what the breakdown is? I'm sure this assortment must have hit my Walmart in North Bay by now but I have yet to find anything beyond #35 on the pegs. Lots of Clone pilots, Obi-wans and #35 Plapatines.

Post by: darth_keg on June 02, 2005, 11:34:19 PM
I haven't recieved any of the cases that have 41-44 at my TRU but I've read that there are two different cases that have been shipped with this wave.  the first is simply one of each.  the second is at least two of the SA clone and 2 of I think the nemoidian warrior.  As soon as I can confirm, I'll post.  I think there's another TRU emp. from either manitoba or alberta who may know.  Not sur of his handle though.  TRU125 comes to mind but not sure.

If it's any help, Silver Snail in Toronto was restocking all their figures up to #44 but they had also marked them up at $12.99...even the older ones like Vader which had formerly been only $10.99.
Zellers in Mississauga Erin Mills has moved all their RPTS figures to the back wall - I saw quite a few Vaders, Red Guards, etc but nothing new past #40.

Got up early, ventured out to 427/Queenway Wal Mart & found zip, zilch, nada..

Picked up a Wookie Warrior, but they had no Darth Vader and no Blue Guard.

I think its onto Silver Snail tomorrow to pick up the missiing ones & a road trip to the US. I picked up a SA Trooper #41 approximately 2 weeks before it came out in Canada.

maybe scalper was a bit harsh but look at the facts: a store RISES its price from 10.99$ to 12.99$ on all figures because there is an increase in demand for a few (SA trooper, AT-TE gunner etc)?
 
even if they are independent, you do realize they are making money at $10.99 right? at 12.99$ they are just making more

Now would you be more likely to purchase a figure there (not only SA troopers but the others as well) at $12.99 or look for it at your local Wally, TRU or Zellers?
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Arc trooper on June 03, 2005, 04:16:42 PM
Sure I would buy figs from then cause if I have too pay a few more bucks to get the figs I want it's no big deal.  Right now I've paid $9.99 or $10.99 for figs not too many at wal-mart prices cause they usually don't have the ones I need.  Guess it all depends on your budget and if you are willing to wait.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Darryl811 on June 03, 2005, 04:55:46 PM
If the price of a figure goes up in value due to demand, is it not fair to ask more.  If you owned some thing like gold for instance and the price goes up, should you keep your price the same because you paid less, while everyone else is charging more!
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: darth_keg on June 03, 2005, 05:02:45 PM
Don't forget too that SS carries the U.S.  carded figures not the Canadian.  How much  would a figure be when you factor in gas to buffalo and back, your time, 2 hours each way.  Granted they don't drive down there to get them, they have them shipped up here.  But you're going to find the same selection at the local walmarts down there that you would here so going to a collector's shop to pick up the hard find ones even at $15 save you tons of money on gas and time trying to find it up here.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: old man ben on June 03, 2005, 08:59:18 PM
I can vouch for that - just came back from 5 days in the USA - went in a dozen WalMarts, 2 or 3 Targets, K-Mart, TRU, and even Kohl's and Sears - they all had pretty much the same peg warmers as up here.  All I found was one blue guard and 2 AT-TE Gunners.  They had quite a few Nemoidian Guards and Wookie Warriors, but no SA Clone Troopers left...and nothing past figure #44...
so I could have saved a couple of hundred in gas dollars and got the same figures at Silver snail all in one trip.  It's your choice whether to buy or not.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: dagobahmaster on June 04, 2005, 12:37:38 AM
just to let you guys know walmart is making $0 from the rots line to buy a case from hasbro it is $60 US so in the state at 5.24 they are making .24 cents per fig up here with the exchange it is not much more thats why they are 9.99 at tru so at 12.99 they are only making 5 bucks so they are doing what they can.

so I get called up to the front of the store to do some reshop (returns) and I'm told there are some star wars figures that a guy returned because he changed his mind.  He bought them at the woodbridge TRU and was returning them to my store, newmarket.  I look in the cart and there are 3 clone pilots, a shaak ti, 2 greivous bodyguards and an anakin #2.  The best part is the shaak ti and the 2 bodyguards are on U.S. cards and the anakin is the variant on a canadian card. Bought the anakin left everything else for customers.

This thread in the "just found" area is viewable to anyone, even non-members.

If you keep posting the store locations in this thread as oppsed to the provincial forum, these items will dissapear quicker as all scalpers and re-sellers also check these threads and look for store locations. I am just trying to help all the fellow collectors!!

BTW, the (local store) was just a tongue-in-cheek agreement with the notion of not posting store locations.  I'll head over to the Ontario forum to post where exactly I found them.

Deleted posts can mean only one thing!  Invasion!  :P

Deleted? Thats odd I don't remember seeing that one before it was gone :-\

Well...As a start to my non-figure collecting days, I went to good old Zellers today. Lo and behold - I saw (and bought) Unleashed Anakin, Obi-Wan and Grievous. Wow...Nice pieces. They had some good assortment of stuff....Talking Yoda, Mustafar, some lego, 1-32 for figs, and some ships.

how much where the unleashed and the mustafar playset?

thanks

I found and picked up 7 #41 Clones today at my Zellers here in Northern Ontario  ;) I then went to Walmart and was lucky enough to open a fresh case of this wave and answer my question as to the breakdown of this asortment. Here's the breakdown;

#41 SA Clone
#42 Neimoidian Warrior
#43 Wookie Warrior
#44 Destroyer Droid
#33 Clone Commander
#34 Clone Pilot
#35 Palpatine
#36 Grevious (exploding)
#01 Obi-Wan
#02 Anakin (Dooku saber)
#03 Yoda
#09 Grevious

All the Wookies were the tan coloured one and there were no blue sabered Palps. Anyhow I grabbed the #41 Clone from that case as well and restocked the shelves with the rest. Both stores also had re-stocks of #13-24.

Wish they had thrown the Tank gunner into that assortment as well it would have been the prefect case.

this would explain the sudden flood of commanders everywhere but also proves to me that someone is buying up large amounts of the #41 Clones because I have seen many many commanders in the upwards of 10 or so but only a couple #41's at a time.

The At-TE gunner is a collection 2 figure and those other figures are  collection 1's.  They ship seperately.  Also the Coll 2 are produced in half the amounts of the coll 1's, making them harder to find.

Saw the Wookie Warrior "Vanilla" (light colored) version, along with the neimoidian and mas amedda for the first time at Zellers today...still no sign of bacara Tarkin, or even the Mon Cal senator...hopefully i'll get as lucky as i did with my commander (crosses his fingers and prays for a fresh case with AT-TE gunners)

I saw the 500th Vader at a comic shop. It was priced $24.99 is it worth it? I really want it. But I am also afraid that if I get it, I might find it cheaper else where.

Which brings in the question... will Wal-Mart or Zellers be getting these? If so, how much will they be priced?

i know they've been available for some time at walmart, but the newmarket TRU just got the SA clone wave.  only 2 cases though, and I haven't put them out yet.  look for the 401 corridor stores to recieve more as newmarket is considered a small store.

Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: pcdawg on June 24, 2005, 10:44:47 AM
Just wondering...when does TRU stock up with their new shipment?

Becuase it seems like their shevles are always full and its with the figures that we all have already and never any clones or special figures we are hunting for...the

Do they hold onto the new shipment until the stock on the floor is mostly sold and there's space to place them on??
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: darth_keg on June 24, 2005, 11:24:43 AM
when we first got the figs in stock(about 1week before the release) we had tons of cases of the first and second waves of collection 1 and 2.  each wave after that we have only had 2 or 3 cases of each (at the newmarket store)  the clone wave that we just got in is the first sign of new figs in a month.  I still have 7 cases of our original shipment in the back.  whenever we did get in newer waves, i would fill the pegs with that first as I know ppl are looking for them and they will sell.  I don't open a case unless I can get all of it on the pegs (the exclusion to that rule is the odd little guy who is looking for a vader or yoda or 3po and his mom is hot!!)  If ppl ask if we have something, I tell them straight up, more than likely, but store policy is only to open cases if the whole case can go out.  other wise I'd have 20 cases with no vaders in any of them.  this way it's equal opportunity for everyone.

so to anwer your questions

new shipments go out if there is space on the peg for a full case.

at the newmarket store (I can't speak for the others) I don't hold new stuff, I put it asap.

That's true..but i find quite often that once the weekend comes around the figures move pretty fast....a lot of families shop on the weekends and the kids tend to get their parent to buy the stuff :)

Was at Square 1 today to pick up a few things....checked out walmart and behold a HUGE shipment of Hasbro toys!!! and a Hasbro rep...

Looked around and to my dissapointment didnt see any SW boxes   :'(
Anyhow i asked the hasbro rep why Walmart was not receiving any more SW shipments and she told me that they are coming into the warehouse, but most of shipments are going to TRU.....she told me how there are several collections and waves and that the new wave should be out soon ... once they get more in the warehouse they will be shipped over to Zellers and Walmart.  

She told me these SW toys were in hot demand both from collectors and the stores and they have sold extremely well, beyond what Hasbro would have thought....

So some good news about the Zellers and Walmart having little or no SW toys...  :-*

Ummmm it's probably not a stretch to check TRU for action figures.

What the mods are worried about is store-specific reports of new or hard to get figures in the public forums that might tip off non-members.

If you find a new figure, you post up the type of store - but not the specific location. That's all. Worrying about people posting about an upcoming sale at TRU - especially when they're not likely to be getting any figures we haven't seen yet in time for the sale - is not worth it.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Valfar on July 03, 2005, 08:04:14 AM
They may have the next new waves in the sale..you never know!...and for a sale price at that!!...i am not making a debate out of this..just..well, whats the point of this thread then?..says post the finds here....i am sure people are going to say what they got and where they got it from, or for sure asked the question..keeping that in the provincial forums makes more sense, and i think doing so..renders this thread outdated and useless.

Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: jjreason on July 03, 2005, 01:32:35 PM
Not to me. I keep track of what's being found in Canada at retail as an interest. There have been a few items over the years that have popped up in limited places throughout Canada that I never did find.

When I read in the national Scout Report that a new wave has been found, I like to see "where" (what province, what type of store) so I can try to estimate when our store out here will get them. In my experience, WalMart (for example) will get stuff on the east coast first, then Ontario, then out west. I know that there'll be at least a 2-3 week lag between Moncton finds and me encountering those figs on the shelves here. It lets me plan my shopping a little better.

This thread isn't outdated, it's just used for so much CRAP that should be put into other threads or PMs (and this post IS one of those, just so everyone doesn't think I'm a hypocrite) that it's overloaded.

This thread is for finds of NEW and DIFFERENT items, but we continuously see people posting about Clone Commanders and Pilots and #6 Clones. When I'm reading this thread, I DON'T CARE about those figures any more - I want to see WHAT'S NEW TO CANADA, and that's it. Too bad more people don't feel the same way.

how bout we put an end to this now.  Canadian Jedi posted that he saw the 500th vader at his local TRU along with a whack load of ROTS basic figs for the big july sale (paraphrased).   He reported a new find without being specific, just his local TRU and the price.  Dexta and someone else asked about the big july sale that he mentioned so I gave details about  a CHAIN of stores having a sale that will be advertised nation wide, NOT in one province.  No details about a specific figure at a specific store that any scalper can use to hoard all the newer waves that are trickling into Canada.  Had the sale been only in the ontario stores or in the GTA, then I would gladly have posted in the ontario forum, but as it will be across Canada and shown in a flyer in everyones local paper, I don't see the harm in mentioning it in this forum.  I'll freely admit that it has nothing to do with the topic of the thread, but someone asked a question about TRU and I would be the one with the answer.  Sorry for helping out fellow troopers.  Next time, I'll just let you read it in the flyer.  Hopefully you didn't just by a tarkin for $15 somewhere, only to find it on sale at your local TRU for half that.

"Tx DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

that get me riled. It's a waste of my time reading it, but in every thread on this site you find post after post of it. It doesn't burn that many calories to hit a couple of extra links and send a PM. ::(

Today I got Crusty Mustafar Anakin and Bacura at Chinook.

Bacura is gone but there sre still a few Anakins left.

Anakin is pretty decdent Bacura was pretty bad but i swapped his head, skirt/belt and shouldr pad onto an extra #41 clone and it's now flawless.

Easiest custom i've ever done. No boiling, no dremeling, no painting, no gluing... and SO much better.

he says later this week to expect the new Unleashed and 500 Vader.

I'll be getting Vader and the Yoda vs. Palpatine for sure.

Re the new Wookiee Flyers...there are about half a dozen up on ebay already, pricing anywhere from $9.99 to $29.  Alltroops has them listed at $20 US, so I would guess they will be a little bit more than the $19.99 CDN that the Boga and Barc Speeder went for up here.  Probably around $24.99??

I checked through the SW section and found nothing new...went to the back to check some tricycles for my kid and as I was walking back out to the front to leave the store I saw the Evolutions box just laying flat on the bottom rack....i believe some kid picked it up with their mom/dad and went to the cash register to pay for it...found that it costs too much and just dumped it there... :)

I think the same my local Walmart has not even one figure. I asked a lady there and she scanned the peg tag for me and said they are indeed still active but had no idea when more would come she also said they were selling like crazy and can't see why they wouldn't be getting alot more in. Much different from what another guy had told me so I was quite pleased to hear that.

I have seen how many they get in and it is quite amazing that they are allready gone.

The Walmart here in Kitchener only has like 4 figures on the pegs and they were 4 #36 or whatver number it is palpatines...I was around Cornwall, Ont. this week (6 hours away) and checked out there HUGE walmart and they only had 4 figs on the shelf too...4 clone pilots.  Seemed weird that they each only had 4 figures and all of the same one.

I'm not the least bit worried about walmart not carrying any more ROTS stuff.  It's just a matter of being there at the right time.  I'm fortunate to be a stay home dad and work part time.  I swing by walmart almost every morning.  That's where I got both the SA clone wave and the Tarkin Wave.

WalMart Square One has reloaded with ROTS.  I really question though why they would take all the really badly warn old packages and move them onto pegs, then dump all the new stuff into one big massive wire bin, where these will soon be dog-eared and worn over like the old ones.
In any case there are tones of SA Clones, Pilots, Commanders,
Wookie Warriors, Destroyer Droids, Anakins, Palpatines, and even Obi-wan...a few Neimoidians...but no Tank Drivers, or new figures over #50.

Zellers at Erin Mills look like they opened a few more cases - had at least a dozen red royal guards, lots of Clones, and Greivous of all three types.

WalMart Warden and Eglinton - nothing new - nor at Planet X on St Clair.

I rechecked Zellers this morning (16th) and many of the Clones had gone, but there must have been at least a dozen Vaders, and same of Greivous Guards, super battle droids, and still tons of Clone Pilots and Clone Commanders.

Same 5 Clone Pilots and 2 Mon Mothma's at my Walmart in Ont. They did have the first wave of 8" Force Battlers though (2 of each). This is the first time I've seen these at Walmart.
Zellers here got in 6-500th Vader's. They also got in some case asst with a bunch of Vader's and Clone Commander's. There was one #41 Clone too which I picked up.

OK..i finally agree with Blink on something..he is right, they should atleast check the system to see what is left, retail workers at Walmart usually could care less..espcially when it is Star Wars, you can tell by the tone of voice sometimes over the phone like they are thinking "oh Gawd! Star Wars carp again!"..it has been very obvious to me in a few calls i had made to certain stores..customer satisfaction is important, you have to be curtious to work and retail, i see it as being lazy..what happend to blink, checking the system would had been nice..atleast.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Nighttrain on July 17, 2005, 01:29:45 AM
Have you been to square one? Their bin is like 4 feet by four feet by four feet high...that means there is like 500 action figures in a little random spot...and I really doubt their "system" tells them they have "Tarkin" in. If they could just look in the system and see #38, 47 5, etc is in then yea I agree but its not like that.  Like I said before I had 3 of us digging through the thing and all together all 3 of us could only get about 1/2 through the bin. Saying NO is alot easier then saying YES and it not being there. The guy did the proper customer service.  Because him telling you for sure one way or another is impossible...unless he is a big fan like us and knows 100% for sure.

#1 You called that guy a jerk without knowing anything about him.
#2. I am 2 hours away and I went without knowing if they had crap all there..waaaah I dont have a car. You could call the waaahambulance.
#3 and #1 The guys job is not to be your personal shopper. His job is to service people IN THE STORE and ANSWER answerable questions If you want a personal shopper I have lots of people that are looking for work, I think personal shoppers get paid like 20-30 bucks an hour. I wouldve said the same thing if someone called asking for the same thing...picture if you are at walmart working and some one calls for a super neon orange fishing lure with a black spine and you are not sure if you have the ones that are all orange or the ones that are all green with the black spine......you wouldnt check,when there are about 1000 of em to go through, admit it, I wouldnt and I know it. Also I am a retail manager I wouldnt want my employees to waste their time going through all that for someone that may or may not come in...I want them focusing on people that are in the store....especially in the biggest WALMART in the world!

Me and another Snowtrooper said they were in....dont blame the guy making 8 dollars an hour for your laziness. I dont want to take sides but in this case the customer isnt always right.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: darth_keg on July 17, 2005, 09:54:11 AM
night train, do you work in retail.  there is no standing rule that you have to give customer service to the customers that are in the store and not to the ones on the phone.  It is most definitely not wasting time to provide good customer service on the phone.

What if some 90 year old grandma is looking for something on little johnny's birthday wish list and she depends on wheel trans to get around.  does she have to get of her arse just cause the $8 an hour flunky at walmart doesn't feel like doing HIS JOB

Customer service is for people in the store and the ones who may come to your store.  Not providing it on the phone means that customer is no longer a customer and won't be coming into spend $ that pays $8 an hour flunky.  I've been in retail for well over 10 years now and that is most definitely not how to talk to a customer on the phone.  At the very least the person could have walked by the bin, or got someone else who may have known more about the dept, if there was one.

Gotta side with Blink on this one.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: Nighttrain on July 17, 2005, 10:31:58 AM
I agree good customer service says he should've went and looked but I dont blame him for not looking either. What Blink was asking the guy to do was rude and asking him to go above and beyond. I would feel like crap making some schlub do that.

And yes I am a retail manager I would expect my underlings to at least do a walk by...but my store is not even close to the size of that Wal-mart and doesnt have anything like that bin full of random toys. Like I said it may not have been right but I can totally see his side as well.

I think my big point is its Wal-mart for christ sakes...thats the whole point of Bountyhuntertoys, outer reaches legends etc....They are the ones who actually give a crap about if they have #38 in stock. I'm sure none of the guys who run those shops are surprised at your experience and I'm sure they've got those figures in and would be more then happy to tell you so over the phone.

Nightrain I believe name-calling is very uncalled for in this friendly forum, and that is out of line big time.  BUT...I do agree with you on this one about the topic at hand.  To ask a Wal-Mart employee to reach over and dig to see if the "Tarkin wave" is there is a little unreasonable.    That is way way too time consuming considering the size of this bin at this store, and I am pretty sure even the Toy Manager would question the employee and ask him what the heck he was doing if he saw the employee digging for 15 minutes for a Tarkin.  It isnt the same as asking for a tickle me Elmo or a bigger toy that is very obvious if you have it or not.  You honestly expect a WalMart employee to start digging for you on a busy Saturday afternoon to see if there is a Tarkin?  Get in touch with reality people.  These employees do a decent job, but their job is not to finish your collection, thats your job.  

If anything we should give huge props to Nightrain for steering us to this store and reporting this find.  I was there early in the week and found nothing, and to a few other stores as well.  So this is a big find and should be praised.

I dont mean to offend anyone...I cant remember where I name called unless you mean the jerk comment? I was just using that to make my point if thats the one you are talking about, cause the employee was called a jerk first.

Like you said the important issue is that the find is reported and I'm done derailing this topic as we can go around in circles on this thing forever! I didnt mean to sound offensive I just like to add some colour to my arguements and get people going sometimes.

All this could have been avoided if the store had a proper display. Or simply put the figs out on the pegs. The bin is inexcusable to me. However, I believe the guy could have done a quick check by just looking in the bin. I agree going through the bin searching for a particular figure is a total waste of an employees time, but a quick check is more than reasonable. There is nothing I hate more than people in a 'Service' industry not performing any type of Service. You are paid to service customers.

By the way, loads of thanks to Nighttrain for the post. I would never have checked Square1 this weekend if it were not for the heads up. Ever since I found the 2 alien senators a couple of weeks ago, I've been going nuts looking for Tarkin himself. Thanks dude. ;D

I know for a fact walmart can scan a SW item and tell you which ones they got in, it would be better if you knew the number of the case but, they can infact trace what they got in..i had a guy do it twice at pickering Walmart..he was very polite and helpfull aswell..even went in the back to check..and there was stock..he could not get at it though because it was blocked by a zillion skids, so customer service varies at Walmart, and there are alot of times when it is espcially SW stuff..they just think you are some grown up geek thats wasting their time, choicefull it is at times.

tarkin
vaders med droid
votc lando (at 4 dollers how could you loose?)

and  Nighttrain

i am sorry that i have offended you by calling somone that we all dont know a jerk, unless it was you then i would understand why you got so mad.  i just think that custemer servis is very important in a bussnis, and you sould know that as you are a manager.  i went and i found them, wich was a lie on his part, and the bin is not at ALL imposable to look through

An update on WalMart at Square One today - still a few Meena Tills in the bin, but they are getting a bit worn from the digging.  Also several Neimoidian guards, Polis Massan, and Palpatines...quite a few Wookiee's - Tarful, Chewie, and Wookiee Warriors.  Most are very shop-worn.

Yeah, there isn't much SW stuff at the Flea Market but sometimes a few of them might have a few disirable figs now and then.   I know that Terry had some AT-TE Tank Gunners, C3PO's and a bunch of #41 Clones.   They were all US carded.

On a different note, I found an Evolutions Anakin 3 pack today at TRU.  They still have 2 left.

Yeah, Zellers can be a hit and a miss here in Ontario too.  But Wal-Mart is probably the worst.  Their Star Wars swag is pitiful.  :(

I did however see the ARC Fighter at Zellers one time for 29.99 as opposed to the regular 39.99 price tag.  I should have snagged it then!

It's insane, but if it's a figure that's next to impossible to find on the pegs, what are you gonna do? I had to cough up 20 for my blue guard...even though the guy also had an AT-TE gunner for the same price...also on the US cards...I got nothing against the smaller stores trying to make a profit, but c'mon, charging DOUBLE the retail price? That's nuts. And don't gimme that "Supply and demand" crap either.
Title: Re:Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: jjreason on August 08, 2005, 08:20:41 PM
It's ridiculous, but it IS supply and demand. No blue guards, plus you "need" one (believe me, my wife gets on my case for "needing" stuff instead of wanting stuff too) = you're willing to pay the extra bucks.

The more we pay these prices for figures we want, the more likely  we are to be charged that price. That's the simple fact. If the scalpers couldn't make the money off the figures - they wouldn't buy them. They know the demand is high, and that the supply has been slow to come in, it's a scalper's paradise.

Of interest, Hasbro Canada did change the package backs on the new wave - it shows 36-47. I wonder if that had anything to do with the ABSURD delay in getting this wave to Nanaimo?

What disgusts me most is that it's only AUGUST 8!!!!

The next line of SW isn't due out until Dec??  MAYBE???

Someone at HAsbro Canada should be FIRED over this..It is absolutely horrible, and inexcusable in my opinion.

PS - my wife and your wife would get along...she doesn't understand why I need 5 of every clone....and 1 of every fig...

Blink, Pegger is talking about the change in packaging from ROTS to Saga2, not the next wave of ROTS stuff. They'll be switching over in time for the Christmas rush, at least that's the best guess as to when it will happen.

The problem is, if we're only seeing one wave every 2 months, BBQ Ani won't show in Nanaimo until October. There's no way in heck we'll get 56 ROTS figures, let alone 68 by the time the Christmas toys are supposed to come in.

Silver Snail buys from a US distributor or Hasbro USA. Wal-mart Canada buys from Hasbro Canada. Quite a big difference. >:(

Picked up Unleashed Vader, Sidious vs. Yoda and Asajj at TRU in BC last friday. Still at $24.99CAD when then retail for $14.99USD in the US. 2 cases only and another guy grabbed the another set. Went back 30 mins later and the other 2 sets were gone. An employee said only 2 cases per store. Seeing how many Obi and Anakins are left he said no more were expected.

Grabbed #6 repaint, #34 repaint and #49 in the US yesterday. Skipped on every other latest release.

An employee said only 2 cases per store. Seeing how many Obi and Anakins are left he said no more were expected.

That employee is full of crap.  the newmarket store got 4 cases to start with and has had two shipments of 2 cases for restock since.  and I would expect to get more still

Not sure if this has been reported yet but:

Found the Canadian boxed vehicle, AT-RT with AT-RT Driver at Zellers yesterday.

This was in Ontario - Toronto area. They had 5 or 6 of them.

Also had the OTC Darth Vader collector case with Han Solo/Chewbacca figures included.

Yes, on Canadian card. The curious thing is that there was only a couple of Vader med. droids, Mon Mothma, and a few other peg-warmers, (about 10 figs. in total) and this Blue Guard.
My first instinct was to check the tape job on the back... (it was clearly factory.)

Who snapped up all the green clone commanders on saturday morning?  Lord Prelude was in the Oakville TRU and picked one up just before 11...told me there was at least three more that he saw, but when I went in minutes later they were all gone!

The Royal Guard is collection 2 and  48, 49 & 50 are collection 1 so they wouldn't be in the same case assortment.  Maybe he's in with the latest release of the Tarkin wave? Or maybe the latest 37-40 (AT-TE Gunner et al) assortment.  Hey, maybe this means we'll start to see some brown wookies (#43) up here soon!

the blue royal guard was in a case with 2at-te gunners,1 dooku, 1 c-3po, 2 mas, 1 medic, 1 chopper droid, 1 battle droid and I can't rember what other figures.  The clones repaints aren't always in with Barraca so far chinook hobbies has got this wave 3 times and have yet to see a repaints.  So I'm hopping the next time.
Title: Re: Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: jjreason on August 22, 2005, 02:16:07 AM
The Hasbro Canada cases aren't the same as the US ones. The US cases are all posted on Entertainment Earth (and available for preorder), and none of them are the same as the Anakin case we just got.

The Royal Guard in the US cases doesn't show up again until the 51-54 figures start rolling in (and then he's only one per case - and no guarantees as to which you get) - here, as posted above, he's in with the AT-TE Gunner and Mas Amedda case.

I know they're US cases - that was my point. When I look at the breakdown of the cases containing possible Clone repaints, I don't see any that include ALL of the figures from 48-50. There is only one US case on EE that has Clones in with new figures, and it's a bit of a strange one:

1 x 33
3 x 34
1 x 41-44
2 x 49
2 x 50

For "new" figures, this assortment blows - unless all of the clones showing up are repaints.

TRU Kitchener has some very cool blasters (a little pricey at $29.99).  There was a clone trooper blaster that echoed the vintage 3-position laser rifle (without the 3 position feature) and the sound was excellent.  "Paint" was worn purposely - looked good.  There was also Greivous' blaster and a wookie/chewie gun that shot foam discs.   :sw2:

Are these the same ones that were sent from energizer?  If so I got one that was Vader on one side and Anakin on the other, are these not the same having both or are they two separate sabres that don't change back and forth?

I would suspect those are less likely to be errors than they are to be fraudulent returns. If they're still there next time, turn them over to an employee so that no one buys them. I've recently found POTF2 Chewie and Commtech Stormy at my TRU in VOTC packaging, and I told the employees what had happened. They took them off the shelves right away.

51-53 is available at Hamilton TRU.  Got them all last night.  Tarkin wave is there also but I have it coming via a trade.  New Unleashed were in stock as well.  All the Vaders were gone as of this afternoon but still lots of Yoda vs. Sidious and the other one.  Not situated in the SW section but an endcap further down towards the lego section.

My local wal-mart just restocked the pegs....here's  a pic of the selection

(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y147/Procto/IMG_3829.jpg)


They even had 2 vaders medical droids but one quickly vanished from the peg when I turned my back. I didn't bother picking up the second one though, the figure seems boring, but aparently a rare figure. I buy toys because I like them not because they're rare. I suppose it would have been good trade bait, oh well hopefully some collector with a hole in his collection picks it up, and it doesn't end up in the hand of a scalper  :mad0137:.

Hey Guys

As you may have noticed, I just modified a bunch of the more recent posts that included the exact stores where you purchased or saw the new figures.  Please only post exact stores in the provincial forums, as many lurkers are around, some of whom are scalpers, so we would rather only actual members who are involved reap the benefits from the info here...

Finally scored my blue guard on Canadian card from Zellers in Ontario too. There was only the one along with a Battle Droid, Mas Amedda, Polis Massan, Vader's Medical Droid, red Palpatine and the regular pegwarmers (Clone Pilot, black Palpatine, Bail Organa, Mon Mothma and Neimodian Warrior). Someone must have already gotten the 2 AT-TE Gunners from the case. Still lots of wave 2 deluxe figures also (6-7 of each). Just waiting for 54 & up now.

You can see all of figures up to #63 on e-bay, and all are for "on hand" delivery which means they are out there in the USA.  In your search under Star Wars Category ROTS just put in the figure number - # 57 or #58 or whatever and you can get pictures from any one of the listings.  There are even listings for figures beyond these numbers, such as the Target Exclusive commando for pre-sell (Nov delivery).
Most of these are repaints of existing figures, but pretty good looking none the less.

You never know who is going to be the hot figure. Buy the ones you like and don't worry about it. Just be sure to grab em when you see em.

As for your troubles findin' #48 R2-D2 (http://www.goldenagetoys.com/c240802p16695776.2.html), and #50 Anakin on Mustafar (http://www.goldenagetoys.com/c240802p16695772.2.html) we've got 'em for $9.99 each. Sold out of AT-RT Drivers (http://www.goldenagetoys.com/c240802p16696683.2.html) though. Sorry.

Just as a note - I belatedly changed (slightly) Jodo:Kast's post to remove the city name and change it for the province.  As many cities only have one TRU, that is just telling the lurking scalpers where to go. 

Please, everyone, only post the province and store in this thread, then go to the local forum to post the city (and specific store if there are more than one TRU or whatever in your city)
Title: Re: Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: darth_keg on September 29, 2005, 03:11:22 PM
Just got a couple of new things in at TRU.  1st is a darth vade "kit" that comes with the voice changer ($40), a vader electronic lightsaber ($30) and a vader cape with adjustable neck tie (or something like that).  Price is $65.

Also got a new TRU lego ROTS set.  Comes with Tri fighter, Arc 170, either the mini jedi starfighter OR the mini arc 170 and a cd rom (i think) of "revenge of the brick"
It wasn't priced but I believe it was about $70.  here's a pic, sorry it's blurry.

No this is from the "F" case.  We just got it in on Thursday and there was only 2 of them (may get more on next truck)

The repaint Anakin is in the "C" case.  Just ask someone who knows what they are doing at TRU if they have those cases.  The letters are at the end of a long #.

Went to local BC TRU, they had 8 C boxes and 1 D boxe that i could see.  Think they had more boxes in the back (box A to be specific) cause my buddy and I found a Bacara there which wasn't there last night at closing.  We left the Bacara in the back for anybody who's missing him.  I picked up an AT-RT driver, there was still one there when we left.   A lot of Obi-wan pilots and mustafar sentries.   I will forward this message to brianakarobin to put into the provincial forums as I do not have access yet.

The Crab Droid is one of the third wave of deluxe figures that we haven't seen up here in Canada yet, along with Stass Alie on her speeder bike, a Spider Droid (like the Saga deluxe figure) and 4 variant 3 packs of non-articulated Clonetroopers. I'm still hoping that we'll see these up here, but they were out in the states a LOOOOOONG time ago.

I'd rather pay US prices - even after exchange, it's still cheaper to buy in the states.  It's total BS that we're still paying as much as we are up here for figures - since the dollar his risen from a low of 62 cents to around 85 cents, the prices have pretty much stayed the same.   :mad0177:

One day later I found another (TriLogo) Shocktrooper and Green Clone Commander.  No (TriLogo) Black Pilot or Chocco-Wookie though.

Living in Windsor, on the border of Detroit, has its advantages...whatever I can't find in Canada, I find in Detroit...whatever I can't find in Detroit, I can make a trade with someone in the Detroit area.  ie, the AT-RT driver traded for the Black Pilot, and more recently I made a trade from the Clone Evolutions pack (yellow).

Now I'm set until the final 12 starts hitting

This the the case assortment that contains the Blue Guard (1) and AT-TE driver (2).

hey there posted this also in Ontario forum.

found today at toyrus (Ontario) after work.  2 blue guards (none left scooped them all so sclapers dont get them) AT-TE gunner (never found him before, maybe 5 left) and also grabbed the variation of ani with the sith eyes (maybe 5 left).  they also had the one ani with the alternate sideous lightsaber.  maybe 5 of those but i didnt pick one up.
they also had a couple of the jedi vs sith packs with obi, ani, jango, maul and i think mace.  didnt grab it cause well you know.  REPACKS.  any londoners wanna trade for a blue guard let me know.  i will trade one.  also i didnt see any black pilots or clones (whichever one it is)

about 2 weeks ago they had about 10 red clones and 10 green ones.  only picked one of each but all gone today. 

also walmart whiteoaks did a restock and plenty of the last couple waves.

Hi everybody
Walmart here in (Ontario) had a big shipment in today, lots of stuff I've never seen (Yoda spinning action, Battle Droid, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Red leader and AT TE Tank Gunner). Anybody know when the new wave is due to hit the stores?? SOOOO glad they shelved the 'glowing baby' Padme figure. WAY too cheesy.. :shakehead:


I'm going to start writing my edits in the posts to save on having all of these extra posts...

Anyway, again, edited out the city.  PLease do not put the city as well as the store - just what province - so that scalpers who are just lurking can not scoop the figures from the troopers here.  Only post cities in the provincial forums.  If you don't have acces, pm the actual store to me or another mod, and keep posting and you will get access! :)

Hey folks,

Saterday morning started on a rather good note, I found 2 black pilots at my local Wal-Mart in *******. I will keep one and the other one is up for grabs.

The figs were $ 7.44 each (before taxes). I would sell it for the same price I paid. I'm just here to help out fellow collectors.

Anyone interested ?

Let me know.

Walmart, Zellers and TRU have all had new stock in the last couple of days.  I found and bought the following:

red shock troopers
black clone pilots
green commanders
AT-RT drivers
blue royal guards
AT-TE gunners

I left behind 54-56, lots of #41s.

Picked up a Sith Evolution set and left behind the clone Evo.  Too pricey at $34.99 plus the taxes - $40 :mad0177:

Yeah...that's why i passed on the Anakin EVO, even tho i want that SA ROTS Anakin...<sighs> 40 bucks for one figure, and the rest would either go in the drawer, or otherwise out of sight...that's nucking futs:(
Title: Re: Post ROTS finds here!
Post by: napseeker on October 14, 2005, 11:45:43 PM
Richard, you should consider just asking other snowtroopers if they might want to buy the other two figures off you. You never know -- some folks might want the extra SA Vader or AotC Anakin. That way, you can work out an even split of your costs and who gets the box and which accessories go to who.

For example: I'd love to pick up the grey-white Evo Clone variant but I don't really need the dirty sandtrooper (a little too dirty compared to the yellow-Evo clones Sandtrooper which I didn't mind). You never know who might be army building or collecting the ones you don't need (my Evo Vader has a crappy paint job on the face -- the paint wasn't thick enough and you can make out the black plastic just beneath the paint. That alone would get me looking around for someone in my neighbourhood selling a SA Vader from that pack).

I just got back from the states an hour ago. Checked 3 Walmarts, 2 targets, 1 Kmart, 1 KB-Toys and 1 TRU.

Scored the 2 lava reflection figures at the Target near Walden Galeria.

None of the other stores seemed to have anything except 5+ SA Clones, 10+ Vaders and stupid ammounts of ATRT drivers and Nemoidian warriors. Also picked up a set of cases, a clone deluxe pack (on sale for $8) and a Stass Allie (also on sale). Was rediculously disapointed at the available selection.

I hear 'ya AMPS...I live in Windsor, Ontario (right on the border with Detroit--in fact I can see downtown Detroit right now from my office), so I hop over the border sometimes to hunt for the newest ROTS figs.  MOST of the time I don't find what I'm looking for (but I usually don't return totally empty-handed).

I believe the reason for my lack of success is due to the fact that there are no release dates (so the best stuff is usually gone by the time I get there), combined with the fact that this stuff is moving very fast.

On the upside...there are about 5 Targets, 4 TRU, 5 Walmarts, and 3 Zellers all within 1/2 hour of my home (between both Windsor and Detroit)

Just thinking out loud here, guys...it might be wise if we don't post actual store locations in the US as well, as the scalpers can just as easily pop over the border and clean out the stores there.  Maybe we could post them in the provincial forum of the province that has the closest border with the location?  What do you think?

Honestly, we post the exact store location on the front lage, so I honestly dont see the big deal posting a store name in this forum at all.

I agree with rickulack...but also for different reasons.  First of all, what are the chances that US collectors are reading Canadian forums, especially considering we get stuff in Canada way after the states.  Secondly, especially in the case of the exclusives, they are gone in a day or two anyways (partly due to the fact the all the US forums allow the members to post the cities/store names, and partly due the fact that Target exclusives are really popular and move really fast on thier own)

The Target lava Anakin and Obi wan are now showing up in WNY.  My sister in law was kind enough to get me a set.  They were mis-priced for $5 to boot!!!  Also got the nemoidian commander.  She's off to Walmart to look for any of the other "final 12" for me.

I've picked up most of my final 12 on e-bay, and fairly reasonably too.  I now have in hand, or coming soon:
Commanders Bly and Gree
Passel Argente
Cat Miin
Neimoidian Commander,
Tactical Ops Trooper.
My daughter is down in Phoenix now looking to fill in some of the others - already has found the Lava reflection Obi and Ani for me.

I am not concerned about the US readers, but Canadian scalpers who live near the border and could scoop them up.

Richkulach, as far as I know, we try not to post actual stores on the main page as well.  It may happen occasionally, but it is the exception, not the rule, and would be an oversight.

And as to the minimum post rule - there is not an actual number, first of all, and secondly, I think it is a reasonably effective deterrent.  First, it is extra work for them, and they often won't bother.  Second, maybe if we can get them on board, they might see how there scalping is viewed, and they may stop.  This certainly is the minority, but as an example, before I ever got involved with these boards, I remember picking up a pile of Queen Amidala Coruscant for cheap at Wal-Mart after episode I, because I saw that on ebay they were selling for a fair bit more.  I didn't really think anything of it until coming to this board.  Now, I wouldn't do that (although it is not the same as picking up the new figs and jacking up the price), as I would rather sell them for cost to help out another collector, and hope that they would do the same for me.

With all the fear-mongering about the last 12 ROTS figures not coming to Canada, I took a trip to the US yesterday to see what I could find. 
Managed to grab 57-63 between Target and Walmart.  Early pegwarming favourites from this lot were the Wookkiee Commando aka Soldier Ape, Neimoidian Commander(hello! repaint w new accessory) and Commander Gree(cool fig...maybe he ressembles the AT-RT driver too much?)
Also grabbed a pack of Target Star cases and some Xmas ornaments.  Walmart had a boxed set of Pez dispensers for $14.99 but I already had them all individually.

Please see the ROTS toys section for discussion threads about these topics - the 3 packs weren't found yesterday, no idea if there's an update for today - and a Hasbro TRU employee is the one that broke the news about the last 12 NOT coming to Canada to one of our very reputable members.

About 2-3 weeks ago I went to the Zeller's at westmount mall in Edmonton, and they had 2 Green Commanders, 3 Bacaras, shocktroopers and an AT-RT driver. I bought the commanders, Bacara and Driver. Iwent back today and the rest were gone. Previously I purchased a red commander at the Zeller's in St.Albert. So watch Zeller's! Please tell me if my find was a good one.

went to Detroit again this weekend.  Found the Gree variant (with shiney/metalic green visor) at Kmart!!!  Also, I found R4-P17 at Target (unfortunately, this is the only "final 5" figure I've ever seen at retail!).  I also found the US carded Red Royal Guard at Target.

Out of 4 Targets I visited, I saw a single Shadowtrooper in hiding, but I already have the 2 I want for myself.

Actually, I went to Detroit for the purpose of getting the Walmart exclusive Separation of the Twins, but I couldn't find it anywhere.

The pics on rebel scum are probably Canadian. The Leia Boushh pic actually says "canadian card" below the picture when you blow up the pic of her carded. The rest probably are just missing the label. I think the US will have picture backgrounds and be single lingo.

Anyone know how "random" those holo figs that comes with them actually are, if at all. You can see on the back of which figure, but if my speculation is wrong and they really ARE random, will they be worth more depending on the holo coming with it eg. boba and holo boba? If so theres gonna be war for these.

Backgrounds are DEFINITELY on the US cards. Not coming on the Canadian cards. Thus Canadian card back sucks. Visually of course. Since I not an opener it really sucks. I guess ebay for me again.

Title: Re: New Saga 2006 Available Now!!!
Post by: napseeker on November 30, 2005, 12:20:50 PM
Yeah, it's a massive goof-up by Hasbro to make the holograms in action poses rather than neutral stances. I noticed on the other SW boards that few people are really all that excited by these so I don't think we're gonna see massive demand for collecting all the possible combinations or even the popular combos.

Also, what's the point of getting a Boba-with-mini-Boba for those carded collectors if you can only see the hologram from the backside? Carders usually hang them on the wall face-forward. Another goof-up...

I believe one of the reports mentioned that it's pretty easy to cut open the little window on the back and steal the holo-fig. That should also make it fairly easy for collectors who'd want Boba-with-Boba or Vader-with-Vader to carefully insert whichever holofig with whatever character they want while only damaging the packaging very, very minimally. You get the same effect. I refuse to believe that someone would rather pay 3x the price on eBay for an actual holo+figure combo when they could manufacture their own version with an exacto knife and some tape. Collectors wouldn't be that crazy, would they? :sign0065:

Title: Re: New Saga 2006 Available Now!!!
Post by: jjreason on November 30, 2005, 03:34:24 PM
The whole thing is going to lead to a lot of vandalism and theft. If each separate figure had the same holo packed in, there'd be a lot less potential for that to happen. Bad idea, Hasbro.

Are they regular price - that is $9.99?  Or are they more now because of the extra hologram? 
And could you tell if the holo figures were random?
Title: Re: New Saga 2006 Available Now!!!
Post by: clone 118 on December 01, 2005, 06:04:37 PM
Holo figures are random, there were different ones with each han as an exmple and the yoda was with three different figures, he was the most common in the case I saw.
Yes it seems $9.99 is now the regular price for this line.

Thanks for this price, I will wait for now but 9.99$ is not bad at all...for some reason I will just wait since my ROTS collection is not complete yet...their is so much to buy...can't have it all but want it all. Dam It  :mad0177:

Just picked up some saga figures today and  all I have to say is Hasbro has really gone the distance for us Canucks yet again.  :shakehead:

No backgrounds on the cards. Not even a crappy starburst, just plain black space.

This is the most unoriginal and sadest excuse for a cardback that I have seen.

They screwed us with the final 12 and they are doing it again.

I hit my TRU early this morning, and they had about 10 or 12 of each figure to choose from...four or five different holo figures for any one of the 6 regular figures.
I was able to select Yoda, Luke, Boba Fett, Queen Amidalla, Vader and Darth Maul.

I must admit I don't mind the common black starry background, but I would have much preferred individual cards as in the USA with pictures and more specific info for each figure on the back.  The sculpts themselves are quite good, much more detailed that previous versions.  My original plan was NOT to get all six, but after seeing them I went the whole hog!

I'll see if I can post up some pictures to show them in detail.

In terms of the sculpt it looks pretty much like the Pit of Carkoon version, but the paint job is totally different...lighter grey uniform, more detail on chestplate, etc.  I think the knee joints look to be different, but I haven't opened mine yet.

Here's a funny story. We were at the 3rd Wal-mart on our secret toy run when I spotted the Unleashed Battle packs (wave 1). I convinced my friend to get a set for the Comic Book Shoppe. As I was searching for a better packaged Utapau trooper set I noticed the corner of the Bail Organa / Leia card hidden behind a Darth Vader voice changer helmet and about 3 Ki-Adi Mundi action figures. Sure enough there they were along with a solitary Obi-Wan and baby Luke. I guess someone didn't do that good a stashing job on them. Thank you mysterious stranger. LOL :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

Stopped by my local Walmart today after work to look for the new SAGA figures. No luck with them but I did find 6 (yes 6) black pilots on the pegs as well as a chocolate Wookie, an SA Clone, Destroyer Droid, Mustafar Anakin and 4 Bacarra's. I think I'll return some of my grey pilots and fill my ships with black ones instead as I haven't opened them yet.

I am wondering if the new Saga figures are even out in the USA yet.  A quick check on e-bay shows only sellers are from Canada or the UK, and they are all the blank back CDN cards.  I have a friend in Chicago who hasn't seen them down there yet.
Title: Re: Post Saga2 Finds Here
Post by: clone 118 on December 05, 2005, 06:57:59 PM
Wondering out loud. Perhaps Hasbro shipped them early to sell for Christmas here because they didn't have the last 12 of ROTS to sell? Have to provide the retainers with something. I seem to remember a new wave hitting Wally World a week or so before Xmas one year for the same sort of reason.

If the R2 is a repaint of the ROTS Sneak Preview Droid (as was rumored), you'll likely want one. That's a VERY nice droid, I'd gladly take an R2 made like him.

Found Saga figures at the local Walmart.  When I went to scan them -scanner said see Walmart employee for help.  THey were on the same pags with the SW EPS 3 figures that said $7.44 - she took the figure over to a scanning centre and it came up with $8.44.  So it looks like there is only $1.55 difference between them and TRU now.

They went up in the US as well - lots of folks griping about having to pay 6.44 - 6.99 down there per figure (a dollar more than they were paying for ROTS figures).

I was hoping that with the new parity between our currencies we'd see NO price increase.... which we haven't at Zellers or TRU now that I think of it. WalMart must have decided to try and break even on this year's figures.

You hit the nail on the head there. The wholesale prices from Hasbro haven't changed. Wal-Mart was selling their ROTS figures at a loss to suck us into their store every week looking for new figures expecting us to buy other stuff while we were there.

You can also see why Wal-Mart was so bad at getting new stock out there. They loose money on each one they sell so they are better off to leave a few peg warmers hanging there as bait to get us in there hoping to find the latest wave hot off the truck and then just buy a box of cereal for the kids while we are in there. And then repeat the cycle.

These guys know how to play the game. They aren't the world's largest company for nothing. Now that it is not a movie year they've determined that the low price bait won't draw enough traffic to justify the loss so they are going to try to actually make money on the figures now.
 
Title: Re: Post Saga2 Finds Here
Post by: jjreason on January 08, 2006, 02:54:43 AM
It's going to stop working though (the bait, I mean) if they don't stock up soon. I used to go to Walmart almost every day....... but I've pretty much given up. They finally put out the stuff they'd had on layaway (a few of the Tarkin wave figures were at my WM today, to go along with the 3 dusty Mon Mothmas), so hopefully after those have sold we'll get the first Saga case.

Full Hoth wave - all 8 - at Silver Snail at $12.99 each.
Thanks old man ben. Saved me again.

Walmart (ONT) also has them. But no backgrounds, so not interested. They are all yours. As of 12:30pm. :(

That's what the provincial forums are for....

Specific store finds are to be posted in the local provincial forums.  General "Just Found" announcements are to be posted here.
Maybe we need a sticky at the top of the forum to remind people of this.

I don't get it?? I'm to say "found hoth wave" And then go to provincial forum and say where????  seems like a waste of time.  I feel the bigger problem is people not saying what city they found things in, like when someone says "found hoth wave at my local walmart" that is just useless

Saying that you found a particular thing in your local walmart in any province is fine with me.  I'd rather read that hear then check each and every provincial thread to see what is showing up where.  If I see my province listed then I'll go to the provincial forum and see where abouts it is.

And for the record, found a case of hoth at my local walmart in ontario, check provincial forum for city!!! :tongue0024:

Post by: powerpig on February 16, 2006, 08:57:59 PM
Not being able to post/view the location of finds in this forum and having to reach "Empire" status to view provincial forums pretty much makes this site largely useless for casual visitors. It's very disappointing.

I am not a scalper, and I rarely buy more than one of each figure at my local Walmart or Zellers. Usually I just check here to see if anything is showing up in neighboring towns with a Walmart or Zellers. This usually gives me an idea of how soon they'll show up here.

It's upsetting that scalpers prowl these forums, but I think by effectively ending your scout report service, you're alienating a lot of would-be snowtroopers.

Well, that's my two cents.
Title: Re: Post Saga2 Finds Here...Hoth wave found!!!
Post by: Darth Paul on February 16, 2006, 09:42:14 PM
I'm not a moderator or anything but I think the original intent of this forum was to give general info.  It's fine to say that you found new figs in Toronto or Kitchener or Kamloops or whatever.
I think it was posting specific store finds that was discouraged, like "I found the new Hoth wave at Square 1 Wal-Mart in Mississauga."
And I don't think it takes very long to reach Empire status. 
Title: Re: Post Saga2 Finds Here...Hoth wave found!!!
Post by: jjreason on February 16, 2006, 10:15:39 PM
That's correct. The requirements for seeing the local forums are as follows:

- you must be a registered member

- you must make at least 10 posts under your username (at least I believe the number is 10, I know it's not very high)

We're trying to discourage lurkers from being able to score all the good figures - and that's the extent of it.
Title: Re: Post Saga2 Finds Here...Hoth wave found!!!
Post by: powerpig on February 17, 2006, 08:16:22 AM
I think it's a bit unfortunate that you seem to suspect all lurkers of being scalpers, or at the very least, less deserving of good figures than regular posters.

I am sure there are a number of regular posters here who are scalpers. It's really not hard to post a bunch of messages in different forums to reach "Empire" status. So clearly, if someone is intent on using these forums as a scalping resource, well, they're stilling able to do so rather easily.

I do respect your intent, but I'm just not sure you've taken the right approach. Anyhoo, enough of my complaining! :)

I think the idea is to have people contribute more to the forum and form friendships with other troopers. Sure, anyone can post a bunch of non-sense posts and get access but not as many people will waste the time doing it unless they really cared about it. Also, I think mods "moderate" who has access so I'm sure that if someone registers one day, posts 10 "Ya, I agree" posts then is never heard from again, well it might make them suspicious.

Well, all I can say is don't come to me with a problem - come to me with a solution. If anyone has any input on a better way of doing this on an internet message board, feel free to contact myself or any member of the admin. Only with the input of the membership can we make this place as good as we'd all like it to be.

Speaking as someone who just got access to the provincial forums, I don't mind the way it's set up at all...at the very least, the snowtroopers msg board is a way of networking...I mean, at work, I'm not going to share any of my "retailing secrets" with someone I just met, only with the people I know and trust...giving access out in this way does limit the board from being filled with only users, by encouraging everyone to contribute...my 2 cents

speech over  :tongue0024:
Title: Re: Post Saga2 Finds Here...Hoth wave found!!!
Post by: powerpig on February 17, 2006, 03:28:26 PM
Here's an idea: Why not have scout reports sent to an admin, and then the admin can post them in a general forum? Nothing too specific, but things like "Hoth Wave now showing up in southern New Brunswick." So people can quickly check to see if there's any point in running out to Walmart/Zellers/TRU.

The fact is that many people work a full day, have a long commute home and have limited time in the evenings. So this would help them figure out whether there is any point in taking a trip to Walmart.

I also think it would be nice to see news on the home page indicating what toys are expected to come to Canada. As an example, I had no idea whether the Hoth Wave would show up here -- it was only by talking with the guys at Legends that I figured this out.

I've already got access to my provincial forum, so it's not like I have some hidden agenda here. I just think that it's a bit alienating for new users. I started coming to these boards a few years ago, and I can tell you that if there was a posting threshold to access provincial forums at that time, I may not have stayed around.

Ultimately, this affects the traffic the site gets and, I imagine, how much revenue it makes from ads. (I always click through to stores on the home page to make sure the businesses know that I've gotten to them through Snowtroopers.ca.) So I do think it's worth discussion.

To my knowledge the admins and mods here are all volunteering their time and to expect them to go through all the scout reports on a daily basis, edit and post the relavant ones on top of any of the other things that they do is too much to ask


"The fact is that many people work a full day, have a long commute home and have limited time in the evenings. So this would help them figure out whether there is any point in taking a trip to Walmart. "

Many is not all.  I work part time and stay home full time with my kids.  I don't know how you can make a broad statement like this without first doing some kind of poll to find out who works what hours and whether or not they have limited time to go check thier retailers for stock.  They do also have the option of calling to find out what's new and in stock.  Most retailers will hold items if they have them in stock

"I also think it would be nice to see news on the home page indicating what toys are expected to come to Canada. As an example, I had no idea whether the Hoth Wave would show up here -- it was only by talking with the guys at Legends that I figured this out. "

Expecting reports on what is and isn't coming is to Canada is more dependant on the Sponsers giving us that information.  Most of the big chains (TRU, Walmart etc) are not apt to give that information out as it can be used against them by thier competition.  Also, they have no idea what wave they are getting, it's whatever Hasbro Canada ships to them as they don't order specific waves.  Ex.  TRU in my neck of the woods only has the Carkoon Wave and the Walmart has only had 1 case of Hoth thus far.


I have no problems with the way this site is run and I appreciate the job done by the mods and admins and thus don't feel the need to suggest a better way of doing something.  You seem to have found faults with a number of things, but no alternate solutions, unless you have pm'd them to mod or admin and then I would be happy to retract that statement

How would you change things to avoid the lurkers from getting the info that the collectors would still like access to?

Also this should be continued the the "suggestions" part of the board, not the scout report

I agree. That's why I support an open scout report forum with no restrictions. However, I was asked to come up with a suggestion, and I did.

I don't know how you can make a broad statement [suggesting everyone works a full day] without first doing some kind of poll to find out who works what hours and whether or not they have limited time to go check their retailers for stock.  They do also have the option of calling to find out what's new and in stock. Most retailers will hold items if they have them in stock.

I don't think it's "broad statement" to suggest many people work a full day and that a lot of them have a long commute home. And to suggest people just call stores instead of using this forum... uh, well what's the point of this forum, then?

Expecting reports on what is and isn't coming is to Canada is more dependant on the sponsors giving us that information.  Most of the big chains (TRU, Walmart etc) are not apt to give that information out as it can be used against them by their competition.

That's understandable. Still, I wish we could see more news about what has been found, without it being a sponsor statement.

You seem to have found faults with a number of things, but no alternate solutions, unless you have pm'd them to mod or admin and then I would be happy to retract that statement.

I don't think I've been overly negative and certainly I haven't been disrespectful. I wouldn't even bother bring it up if I didn't care about the site and collectors in Canada. And I did come up with one suggestion, which you dismissed.

How would you change things to avoid the lurkers from getting the info that the collectors would still like access to?

This statement taps into a major concern that I expressed earlier -- the belief that all lurkers are bad and that only people who post regularly are deserving of the information.

I worry that this attitude is alienating; in effect, the site seems to have a policy suggesting that new visitors are foes until they've been proven friends.

Please don't mistake my concern for contempt. This site has been a great resource for me and other collectors, and I just want to make sure it continues to be a great resource!

I know on jedidefender they have private just found forums as well, and they have mods monitoring members to see who are "legit" and who are just using the site for scalping purposes.
I think that is too much to ask of volunteers on a toy site,  personally.
I think the current system we have here is reasonable.  It won't really stop committed scalpers, and I don't really think it will alienate potential new members.  But it is something.
Besides, half the posts in this forum don't abide by these "rules" anyway :P, which is why I brought it up in the first place...

My two sense on this, is that the idea of the site is to PROMOTE a sense of community with the people here, not just to let others do the hunting for you. Please don't take that statement to be an accusation of any sort. There are many of us on here that would love to help a trooper out in finding items, especially if we get to know you. I found that even if I can't find things at retail the people here are a great resource that should definitely NOT be underestimated. I started collecting US-OTC at the end of the run and was able to get the entire collection with the relationships I have built up here. Therefore the provincial restrictions are no big deal if you participate.

Not sure if this is new or not - I am not into MM Star Wars figures but I found R2/D2, C3P0 and the Queen, Luke & Leia, Darth Maul and Count Dooku and Han Solo and Boba Fett at a Walmart in Ontario.  The cost was $3.92 each. 

They were in the clearance section.  I am guessing every Walmart across Canada will get one box in and sell them at this discounted price.

They aren't "new" but this is the first time I've heard them being available at Walmart? TRU had them last year for $9.99 each. Hopefully they'll show up at my Walmart. My wife has been bugging me to open up my set  :shakehead:

Hoth wave (most of it) at Ptbo Wally.

They had Cliff, Riekeen, Veers, droid & AT-AT driver. Also SW TFs....

Local Zellers has Titanium ARC and Tri-Droid. Only Ep III figs still kicking around are Mon Mothma and Bail Organa. Lame selection. I myself will wait for VOTC 06 series. Carkoon wave at Zellers too. All crappy Canada cards.

Hell - so far this year I bought 2 figs (Boussh Leia and Carb Solo) None of the others look to be worth it.

This amazed me to no end!!!! UGH on Canadian Card.  The sticker across the top is a foil tri logo sticker and the UGH is also Tri logo!!  If Hasbro holds true to only doing 10-20% of what the produce for the US market, these babies are going to be hard to get when all is said and done.

When I opened up my Utapau Clone, I noticed his brochure contains pics of the Geonosis wave figures!  So, does this mean they are coming?  Are we just getting these figures out of order? :sign0065:

that's not a bad price when you think about it

2 electronic lightsabers @ $30 each (TRU price)
2 Basic figs  (the ones from the Mustafa playset aka lava vader ver.2 and lava obi wan)  $10 each

that's $80 indivually for $50.  plus you get a neat poster (insert sarcasm here)

I finally found the coruscant wave at TRU they didn't have them all but i did manage to walk away with an  Anakin and an UGH Vader.

They also had 1 holo ki adi mundi, an UGH Han, lushros dofine and Foul Moudama.

I guess somebody beat me there because they had no utapau clones, no codys and no obi wan. I guess the hunt continues.

I also have an extra UGH Vader, if any one cares.

Yeah, in the US, all UGH figures were only shipped with the Coruscant wave in 5 different case versions.  So if Hasbro Canada has moved onto shipping the Geonosis wave, I think we may be outta luck.

my guess is the few cases of coruscant that popped up a couple of weeks ago were shipped out of order by mistake by hasbro.  Now that Geonosis has shown up in larger #'s, I would expect to see more assortments of Coruscant again.

I'd agree completely.  Looks like ARC Trooper-MTL's find would correspond to that suggestion.

I found the new vintage figures of Luke, Han, Greedo, Tusken, and scout trooper yesterday, they were in a big display stand that had a huge picture of the UGH Logo on it. That read if you get all 5 fig's you can mail away for the George Lucas storm trooper fig. The fig's them selves ran for $19.99 each.

You may not have access to the provincial forums yet to post an exact location, but what province and store did you see these at?  Zellers, TRU, Wallyworld

$20 a piece??  Ouch!  Thats a little high.  Hopefully I find them in the US so I can avoid that extra cost, Lucas figure or not.

Got my Scorch today from TRU in Toronto. But no sign of Atat of Snowtrooper UGH's though? Or any of the others. Are you guys sure that the Canadian cases are the same as the ones found in the EE cases? I think they might be one per case now. I doubt someone would have left a Scorch for a trooper. Especially at $7.97 at TRU!

Hey guys

I know this line has it's own board but i was wondering if you could help. I found the titanium figues of Boba and Vader at TRU yesterday, but behind a lot of transformers I found a "Limited vintage finish" boba, no color at all just metal. Are these rare or just a variant and do they make a vader in the same finish.

Thanks

Just grabbed the Target Exclusive "Demise of General Grievous" at the Detroit Motor City Comic Con, AND I got it signed by Matt Wood (voice of Grievous).  Earlier last week, I found Scorch, UGH Boba Fett, and UGA Snowtrooper all at a local Zellers. 

Sorry fellow troopers, no extras found of "Demise of Grievous" at a reasonable prices.

local wally restocked and so did zellers with the geo wave...Too bad by the time it hit the shelf there were no figures other than Yoda or Poggle left. Still no sign of the VTSC and I highly doubt we'll EVER see them retail here.

 Wally in Osh has nothing but Bib Fortuna, Cliff and Reik. Zellers in Osh only has Carb Han, Leia, and Bib. Pretty sad selection. And quite obvious that someone is digging thru the assortments and buying all the Snowtroopers, AT-AT Drivers & Scorch figs, leaving only the ULTRA peg-warmers.

 All I know is I'm glad I ordered my VTSC from Legends and have them already on my shelf as I write this. :)`

Its still on Dundas street, but in a newer (larger and much better) location --  accross the street from where the arcade used to be

The Utapau Clones, Cody and Scorch do exist in the GTA.  I dunno.... I must have had a pair of horse-shoes stuck somewhere when I walked into a Walmart (Warden and Eglinton) and snagged 2 Clones and  Cody (damn near fainted). A couple of weeks later at another Walmart (Major Mackenzie and ??)  I found another Clone and Scorch.

I'm a little ticked about Hasbro Canada keeping the lid on the VOTC stuff though... I bought a set for $40 US off eBay (sans stickers) as it had been rumoured they would never show up here. Ah, well... at least now I have both US and Canadian cards.

Anybody get their Lucas fig yet?

For anyone having a hard time finding the VSTC Biker Scout, I have a few extra available for cost plus shipping. Hearing how hard it is for some people to find him I thought I'd save a few from the scalpers and help a few troopers complete their sets. BTW, I just found out we have a scalper here in North Bay, ON. He's been grabing all the Clones and selling them at the local flea market here  :fighting0003:

Nice job Hasbro, this set has made it coast to coast (NOT like the Coruscant wave, which we got badly stiffed on out here).

No sign of the Tatooine or Heroes and Villains waves yet, eh? I'm guess that H&V will show up next, followed by Tatooine. Both of these waves have been found in the US, and for a few weeks now.

Is R5-D4 a new mold or the same old POTF2 fig ?

New sculpt, major improvement. I'll grab a pic to post here so you can see how nice he looks:

R5-D4 is a sweet figure. Same body mold as the VOTC R2-D2 with the obvious head difference. A nice touch is the broken motivator that pops up when you turn his head. Only complaint is he could be dirtier.

No UGHs in Tatooine wave - UGH is over...

Yikes. I thought I read somewhere that they would be coming in the next few waves.
So, only the Coruscant wave had UGH and that is the end of it?! What a joke  :shakehead:

You need to know how WM works. They're not going to get a new case until they're in-store stock drops below 6 figures, including all the ones on layaway. If you're looking at more than that, get used to them - all the reorders are done automatically by the computer checkout system.

The only way to beat it is to buy the lot, then exchange them for the new figures when they come in.

The Wally in Ptbo has had nothing more than 2 cliffs and 2 riekeens on the shelf for as long as I can recall. When I asked I'd get the standard "Just what's there" crap and then a day later a new case would appear from nowhere on the shelf (usually the Geo wave minus any clones) I think it boils down to the fact that Wally employees don't give a rat's a** about doing their jobs.

In some cases you're likely right - but I honestly don't think they know when  they're stuff is coming in. They get trucks every night (most stores), and I'd wager that most trucks have toys on them. A lot of what shows up also depends on what WM is holding at their depot as well - they don't see which cases are new vs old - they just see "Store 28 needs a box of Star Wars" and grab whatever's sitting there.

I agree with this whole hartedly... for me, Walmart has proven to be a very poor choice for figures.  I prefer to pay a little more at TRU to save the hassel and gas...  :D

i can see why you guys like TRU more.....maybe because they SPECIFICALLY SELL TOYS!!! wal-mart's ok when you can find stuff there, I've got a few hook ups from when I used to work there. TRU is pretty good but sucks that they NEVER reduce prices when they're clogging up the pegs

Found new Titanium wave of Basic Vehicles today inlcudes Luke on Speeder Bike, Eps 3 Falcon(Blue), Republic Ship.  They also had Heros & Villains -12 figures set and the new Transformers - Emperor Shuttle, Arc Fighter etc.

These were found at a TRU in Ontario.

Happy Hunting.

Do the H&V have the "star" backgrounds or are they like the US versions?
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: Canadian Jedi on July 19, 2006, 10:54:47 PM
Well sort of - these have the star background but they have placed a product catalogue behind the figure so the star background is blocked.   
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!

Heroes and Villains were found in a different part of Ontario today as well..........

Found the above mentioned titanium and heroes and villians along with the remanents of the tatooine wave at my local TRU.

H & V were $13 each  :sign0065:

TRU scalping now?

and they were on the crappy starbackground to boot :shakehead:
