Title: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: Slizer 26 on June 25, 2010, 10:01:26 PM
I've also found Kul Teska at my local Toys "R" Us. Same price unsure about the new card as well, ready for Vintage but the other stuff not so much.

the new Clone Wars and Legends have a street date of August 6th.. I've seen the cases and can confirm that .. saw cases of Legends, Clone Wars AND Vintage today (but they were not put out because the store I was at was honouring that date (I asked but they said no)  :(

Well, at least they're there. And there'll be plenty of this to find whenever they'll put them out. I'm personnaly in no hurry and I'm sure that everyone here will find what they'll need regarding the basic vint, SL and CW figures.

Isn't the sticker on the boxes stating "The week of" August 6th? or does it actually say August 6th? It is good to know that some stores already have the stock.

As reported at AFN various of the blue skies/Shadows of the Dark Side packaged items have shown up at Wal-Mart and I found most of the items mentioned. Saw US carded CW wave 1 (Pre Vizsla, Aurra Sing, Mandalorian Police Officer, Grievous) cases. These are standard wave 1 cases with the Galactic Battle Mat offer sticker on them and still cost 9.92. Wave 1.5 vehicles - Anakin's and Obi's Jedi SF, blue Republic Fighter Tank and Luke's Snowspeeder in Cdn quadlingual packging - no Cloud Car. The price has been reduced a buck to 28.92. Also saw the Galactic Heroes AT-AT in multilingual packaging but did not get a price.

has anyone seen CW Malevolence Figure Two-Packs at Walmart? I found them today at my local Wallyworld .. they were about $17 a pop. They had Obi-Wan and Grievous, Anakin w/ someone (can't remember who) and Ahsoka w/ someone (can't remember either) .. they both might have been clones. They were new to me  :confused0024:

Yeah I saw them, its a good deal for ~17$ but its too bad that they pack in a "main" character with each of them. I was thinking about getting the clone one but I don't want/need another anakin figure...

Went to Walmart based on reports tonight. I found the CW figs, and the Vehicles. took them to the price checker and....please see an associate for assistance on this item came up. Arrrgghhhh!
This kills me because they had the malevolence 2 packs out with a tag for them on the shelf. When I saw the 2 packs last week at  another Walmart they also had the august 6 crap on the boxes and that store didn't put them out.
I don't care at all about the 2 packs, but I just think the situation sucks.

at-at 44.95. didn't see the cloud car or snowspeeder.....tank and star ships were there.
on the cardback for GH...a superbattle droid/clone bomber figure listed....wonder what else is coming out that they haven't mentioned yet.
not sure if it was a cost saving measure...but GH figures seem to be made of softer plastic...and some joints are quite loose and pop off.
still happy with the hall....stuff out at one of the wally worlds in london...but not all of them.

I saw on in the wild last night and to be honest, though I want to be excited about it, it looks short and a bit cartoony. I wish they'd done one that looked more like the TAC one but perhaps with a bit more deco or something. I guess at least it's different though!

Of course they did! That version is not only completely remolded, it's also to scale with the figures, so a little smaller than the vintage mold (thus then all other versions released so far).

Look at the detailed pictures from JediTempleArchives if you're not convinced to buy one (I certainly will!): http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/content/modules.php?name=JReviews&file=print&id=416

Finally, walked into a BC Walmart this morning at 7:30 AM and found at least 10 cases of Vintage hanging on the shelves.  I was able to get the ones I wanted, but no Boba Stickers.  No ships or clone wars figures as of yet.  They did have all the Malevolence 2 packs which I am not really interested in.  Start hunting BC Troopers!!!

Calgary Wal Mart has started to put these out as well. Northland had at least 5 cases on the shelf. No new vehicles though. I'm guessing we won't see these until first week of August.

While this is good news, and what I expected, I wasn't planning on buying any openers from the next wave. I'll have to either wait til wave 3, open one I wouldn't have otherwise, or I'll have to rely on fellow snowtroopers that have extra forms. ;) I was hoping forms would show up in later cases of wave 1. Oh well.

The guy was putting stuff out and I asked about that.  He said they were holding stock as per the date (originally they were going to put stuff out as it came cause their aisle is so empty) but recieved word yesterday that they can put it out.  I'm assuming he meant their head honcho's spoke to Hasbro and got the go ahead.

Had a  :sign0065: moment at Wal-Mart today.  Nothing new in the main toy aisle, no surprise, so I went around to the clearance aisle just in case (sometimes they just dump new stuff there).  Was pretty perplexed when I saw 8-10 ROTS figures sitting on a shelf.  Really weird, but I figured I'd scan one and see how much they were, if they were dirt cheap I may have bought a couple.

So I scan one and it comes up as SW 3.75" VINTAGE FIG.

Really.

It's pretty obvious, when I saw the Vintage last week they all had upc stickers over the upc on the back of the card. So some scumbag bought the new figs and simply put the new stickers over the old ones and laughed all the way home!

Wow it's pegger... there's a name I've not heard in a long time... anyone know if the Skiff can fit the realistic figures?  Looking at the photos of the cockpit, it looks more suited to the slimmer CW figures so I'm wondering if it'd be a tight squeeze for the TLC/TVC guys.

Still no AT-ATs at the TRU I hit yesterday (where they were shifting/clearing space). But they have spread out the figure pegs BIG TIME!

Just got from my friend José the figures from wave 3 of Clone Wars:

- Aurra Sing (repack from wave 1)
- Pre Vizsla (repack from wave 1)
- Mandalorian Police Officer (repack from wave 1)
- Mace Windu (super articulated)
- ARF Trooper with Teth Camo
- Kit Fisto
- Battle Droid Commander

I passed on the other figures from that wave (Anakin with Space helmet, Commander GRee, and another I cannot remember -- I already have these from the previous lineup).

Mace Windu is simply incredible! He's super-hyper articulated, with ball joints even at his hips... and even at his ankles! Yes, you read it right: full ball joints at the ankles, which allow poses at angles for his feet! Much like what you see on the left foot on this picture taken by Rebelscum from the Celebration V Hasbro stand (http://www.rebelscum.com/C5/hasbro/image270.asp).

These were on Canadian cards, so expect them to arrive at the retail stores in the next couple of weeks, or as soon as the stores need to order new cases of CW figures, if their pegs are empty.

But I'm still missing my General Grievous, since he's not packed in wave 3. That omission will be corrected very soon. My guess is that Grevious will be the fast-seller of this new line, and probably the scarciest. If you find one, you're either lucky or you live in an area where there's neither no collectors nor kids who know Star Wars... :)

This new GiJoe line is called Pursuit of Cobra (or in short POC). It's some sort of continuation of the movie line (Rise of Cobra). Very nicely sculpted figures. I saw both Storm Shadow and the new Snake Eyes figures. Storm Shadow has his clothes ripped up with chains around his neck, very nicely done. The Snake Eyes has his wolf pal with a movable head, which is a first I believe (I long for a fully articulated wolf). I'm not a Joe collector, but I do have a few iconic characters that I bought in the past 2 years out of nostalgia from the cartoon TV series I used to view before or after the Transformers cartoon I viewed religiously.

Finally went to a Zellers today to see about getting that TIE fighter for 39.99...but even after holding it in my hands I was hesitant. It's the red cockpit window that's holding me back...anyone bought this and totally loving it????

Anyway, took me forever to find the couple of pegs of figures buried amongst a chaotic mess of everything else. They had mostly CW (a Palpatine, Dooku, Kit Fisto, Cad Bane) and some Saga Legends from the last preTVC wave...oh, and a concept Ki Adi and pink cantina girl. And 2 Yarnas full price (CW is on sale for around $7.50 as others reported but the Yaran's scanned at 9.99!!!)

PS: I am still looking to army build Yarna (thanks Dave!!!) and anyone else who can find her at $3 or under I'll take them (up to about 15 please!)  :rockon: :mad0218:

Just picked up the AT-AT at TRU on my way home. $129.99 less 25% if you find it before the sale ends.

AWESOME! congrats.

I'm good with that... anyone object?

Or if possible just keep the last 3-4 weeks worth.

I like the 4 weeks worth, heck, I wouldnt care if you went 2 months. It would still kill a lot of pages.

I don't know if there is a way to delete pages in bulk or move pages in bulk... deleting or moving posts one at a time is far too time consuming.

Just figured it out... split the topic. I'll leave the original post up for a few more weeks just in case anyone wants to look back for something.

Found the Mighty Beans Darth Vader head (and Spiderman) carry case (includes 1 bean I think) for...$19.99!!! Passed big time.

Found Legends figs Bossk, Boussh, Greedo...and the battlepacks! Passed on all even though I almost went for the Hoth one. No AT-AT sighting here in Quebec yet!

Stopped in at a Niagara WallyWorld this morning, and they finally had the new Saga Legends figs in - 3 pegs full. I grabbed a Greedo, Bossk and IG-88, as well as a TVC Han. I am now officially done... until the next waves hit, that is. Anyone know how long that might be? I'm hoping my bank account gets enough time to recuperate. Also, a WM sale would be nice too.

If you open up that IG-88, let us know if Hasbro is using the same plastic as the VTSC version (stiff and hard) or the more rubbery plastic as the TLC Lancer droid.  The problem with the VTSC version is that many people reported the stiff plastic actually caused limbs to stick and if you forced it, the limb would snap off entirely  :mad0137:  This is probably why they went with rubbery plastic for the Lancer droid - which didn't suffer that problem, although the softness comes with its own set of issues.

I haven't been in a big hurry to open packages lately, but since these things are now shipping with stands again, I can go ahead! Just went out to my car and grabbed him... looks like he is made from the rubbery plastic, similar to the Lancer droid (and the CW IG-86 droids too i think?). I don't have a VTSC one to compare to though (thus the reason for picking this one up). But after sitting in the heat of my car for several hours, I'm quite sure he's not made of stiff plastic! Hope that helps!

While I'm writing, just a few comments in review of the figure, and the SL line in general. First thing I noticed: the glue on the new bubbles seem much more forgiving than what they used for TLC bubbles. I usually like to keep the card as intact as possible, and keep the bubble attached at the top, so that I can re-insert the figure for display/storage purposes. This came off quite easily, with almost no tearing of the cardback, so that was nice to see. The figure itself is quite nice. Decent details and accessories, and surprisingly very little warpage seeing as it's made of rubbery plastic (and that's the entire figure - limbs, torso, head, even weapons). Should be a nice way to cap off the recent set of bounty hunters.

One last comment, regarding the slightly misleading tagline "includes secret weapons" - why does Hasbro include these "stock" weapons packs in the Legends figures? Is it really a selling feature? I'd rather have a display stand. Thankfully these are now included, if only for their battle game.

I think Hasbro commented on that saying it was for the kids and as it was a primarily kid targeted line, they wanted to give the kids the weapons that they wanted or something to that effect.

On the scouting sides of things, I did find the Darth Vader Voice Changer Helmet at Toys "R" Us in the new blue packageing, along with the Boba Fett helmet. No AT-AT though.

Local TRU had the first wave of Legends out and a repack wave of clone wars on the new card.  Arf Trooper, Asohka, ventress, snow rex.

I noticed the the US Legends #6 Vader is NOT the same fig as the multi lingual carded #6 Vader.  The US one is a ROTJ version with a removable helmet, while the M/L one appears to be a ESB version.

Well thats good to hear. I am not sure why they even thought about putting those outdated sculpts back out again. Although the last Saga Legends Han figure had a 10 year old sculpt and I didn't see him hanging around for very long. I know I didn't buy him, but someone was.

Heroes/villains sell; Hasbro said it and it's true. Who? Luke, Solo, Chewie, 3-PO/R2, Vader, Fett : They're easily recognisable and flash in the eyes of parents/giftgivers (and kids)...and most the latter are not aware of the 3 different kind of lines. They see a known face and are not aware that it's a 10 years old figure or not.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: Mit_Othy on September 01, 2010, 04:10:48 PM
Yeah, I guess that is very true. And probably most parents/kids don't even care how old the figure is. It says Star Wars on the packaging!

Sort of new product, but want to pass the news to everyone, not just the provincial forums.  Yesterday at 3 different Zellers I grabbed a bunch of the new packaging Battle Packs.

Anti Hailfire Droid Squad
Holocron Heist
Clone Troopers and Droids
Hoth Assault

All on sale for

 $7.49!!!!

They scan as basic figs which are on sale this week.  I'm assuming cause it was at 3 different stores that this will be chainwide and if they don't catch the error they will be 30% off during the sale that starts tomorrow.

Good Hunting!!

If anyone finds any extra of the Hoth Assault, Clones & Droids, or Anti-Hailfire Clones Battle Packs at Zellers for this price, I would love to have them. I just checked all the Zellers around where I live and the STILL have nothing new. If someone is willing to grab me any that you find, I would really really appreciate it! I would pay for you to ship it to me here in Niagara Falls. Thanks!

I managed to track down 11 Yarnas on clearance from Walmart...for my not-so-secret project...but now I'm finding them nowhere to be found, even at Walmarts that a week ago had 5 or more of her pegwarming. Is someone else out there in the Montreal area competing with me? Or are you going to PM me soon with a bunch of hostage-Yarnas for me to rescue at a crazy mark up??? :mad0137:  If anyone in the area is doing this for the POPs only ($3 a figure isn't a bad way to get POPs) let me know, I'll buy them from you for what you paid and you can keep the POP and droid part!  :)

Speaking of that, after hitting two Walmarts, finding some, and then finding none at 3 more Walmarts that I know had some last week, I wondered if it were possible that Hasbro told Walmart not to clearance them for now so people would be forced to buy full price figures for the POPs for the Fett offer? Or maybe I'm just seeing conspiracies where there are none!

I picked up all of the new CW wave, the Mando speeder and the BARC with sidecar (for the BOGOHO sale). I also grabbed both "Bobba" Fetts as it is the only time I've seen him in store. Finally my search has ended!!

I also saw brand new cases of Wave 2 at TRU, but there were no Camo ARF Troopers / Clone Scouts either. I wonder if he got dropped down to another wave? As far as I can tell, the 4 "new" figures from this wave are CW20 thru 23 - SA Mace, Gree repack, BD Cmdr, and SA Fisto. Has anyone else seen the Camo Trooper?

Hey Guys, just came back from my local TRU. They have the exclusive TRU 2-packs on the pegs. Picked up the "Orphan to Bounty Hunter" & the "Pre-Cyborg Grievous to General Grievous". They had 2 of each of the 3 sets. The other being the "Anakin Skywalker to Darth Vader". I didn't get that one.

I was wondering if these would show up. I'd probably pick up the Boba one. Since I don't have the young version yet. What were they priced at, Obi Wan No Oni?
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: Wedge1021 on September 29, 2010, 08:37:14 PM
The Grievous one would be a god pickup, that Pre-Cyborg figure is tough to find and expensive on places like ebay...

They were $19.99 each.

Also had the two packs at my local TRU.  Also had the Ultimate Battle Pack, Rise of Boba Fett. $129.  The scale of the Slave 1 is shown on the bottom of the box and it's huge!!

16 jabbas at my local walmart this morning. Now only 14, grabbed an extra for a friend. Also scored some wave 2 gi joe figures.  And a couple cases of diapers that were on sale! woohoo!!

My local TRU has the new slave I with jedi starfighter set. Very cool looking vehicle. Looking forward to the ESB version in a couple years.  Bossk looks great too, so hopefully when the exclusivity runs out he'll be on a single card for my OT-related animated figure collection.  They also had the 2 packs of vader, fett and grievous. easy pass, but nice looking sets. Vintage they were mostly down to a bunch of CC pilots, dengars, and 4-LOMs. About 2 pegs worth. Hopefulyl wave 2 will be coming soon. Want that sandtrooper!

Ditto here on the diapers! 1/2 price diapers are like gold... almost as great a find as 1/2 price figures!  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

Where do you guys live that you are finding the Jabba's, Slave I's, etc already? My area is soooo slow getting new stuff in. I only just recently found the BAT-AT at retail here...

Not Star Wars but exciting nonetheless...spotted at Walmart the roughly 12 inch Tron doll today with the face that appears and speaks. Around $45!!! Cool but not that cool. They had the anti-gravity lightcycle and the regular lightcycle with semi-poseable figure. I believe they were $35 and $20 approximately, respectively.

I can't imagine there's a store in Toronto that still has any of the Lars sets left. There was a sale I think around Jan/Feb and they were about 30 or 35% off and that seemed to move away the last 3 still on the shelves at my TRU.  Surprisingly, they never lingered long enough to get marked down to something dirt cheap like $20 or $15.

Oh I do have the Aunt Beru from that set for sale if you're interested  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

Admittedly the hoopla around the Fett figures is a bit crazy but for me, an opener, I'm treating this particular Vintage figure as a collectible simply because it's the 30th Anniversary of TESB and it's the first time we'll be getting our hands on the rocket firing Fett. It will be kind of neat to display all the variations of this figure as a commemorative event. The only one I need now is the US foil Fett.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: sinkie on November 06, 2010, 08:12:17 AM
Haha! Yeah, I realized my little joke kind of backfired as I was completely unaware that the actual figure might actually contain "variant" elements!!!

But no, I too am normally an "opener" but the vintage line has me wanting one to open and one to keep sealed and yep, Fett, the entire idea of his variants and the Rocket Firing version, has me wanting them all too. I did NOT open the foil Fett I found, that was a joke! I'm not sure I'll hunt down the US Foil one though, so far I'm not feeling that it would add anything especially since with this line the card photos are not different due to language laws etc. So I'm content so far to have the US proper stickered version, the CND Bobba error and stickerless version and the stickerless/formrless version and now the foil and rocket firing. Unless they issue a SW or ROTJ version I think I'm done!

OK, so I go into Walmart at (check provincial forums) and find about five TIE Bombers on an end-cap with some Star Wars Speed Stars sets.  The shelf listed them as $39.92 rolled back to $19.97.  :rockon:
So I bring one up to the cash and inquire.  The TIE Bomber scanned at $39.92 still but they gave it to me for the shelf sign price of $19.97!  SCORE!  I went back to grab a few more for some fellow Snowtroopers but they had already changed the shelf sign to this:

Maybe it will go on rollback soon?   :confused0024:

Was so excited to find a foil Fett! Got home cracked him open and now I'm trying to figure out what the big fuss is over. Now that I'm posing him side by side the one from Wave 1 I see no difference between this one and that one.

The price at the Winners I saw them at was 69.99 and this is the price being reported at AFN. Still not a great price since one would essentially buying it for the Sarlaac and the Skiff. Interestingly the ones I saw were in Japanese language packaging like some previous Legacy items that were at Winners earlier this year.

Post by: Mit_Othy on November 24, 2010, 09:23:58 AM
I would get it, if the price was not so steep. $70 seems like a regular retail price, doesn't it? What was this set priced at in the US when it first came out?

Japanese packaging?  Woah, that's pretty cool, I may have to check out Winners!

Hasbro's current usual Japanese language packaging consists of taking an English language package while putting a small sticker on the front of the package and a larger sticker on the back or bottom of the package.

I would get it, if the price was not so steep. $70 seems like a regular retail price, doesn't it? What was this set priced at in the US when it first came out?

According to the original RS thread about the BP it started out at 62.99 although some Targets quickly raised the price to 69.99.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: Hellboy on November 24, 2010, 02:14:24 PM
The ones at the target I saw had the "as compared to" price of $99. I might have been wrong about the $79 price but even $69 is over double what it's worth.

I checked out two Winners stores near me.  Nothing at one, but the other had one of each of the three Quarter Scale figures.  I picked up all three while I was there.  They also had several Y-wings at $39.99 and several of the Sarlacc Pit sets at $69.99.  I looked up what I paid for mine last year and it was $85, so $70 is not a bad deal...but not a really great deal either.

Checked out my my 3 local Winners today, didn't find those 2 GH packs but did find 2 others: Obi-Wan's Episode III Starfighter and Endor Attack. Both $15. Also grabbed a V-Wing Starfighter for $15.

One of the locations had four of the Sarlaac Battle Pack, but I couldn't rationalize the $70 price tag. I'll have to work on justifying that price to myself over the next month or so and likely end up buying it anyways.

It seems a little quiet around here lately?   Maybe it is the calm before the storm, when the ROTJ wave is about to hit.  On that note I picked up the Gamorrean Guard and Wicket from my local comic shop for $11.99.  I wanted to make sure I got those 2.  I will pick up the balance of the wave when (and if?) they finally hit Canadian retail.

These probably won't move off the shelves too fast... kids aren't going to recognize any of these characters and my TRU had tons of them.  Hasbro definitely has aimed this one for the collectors (thanks Hasbro! :) ) 

I do hope they don't end up clearancing for $5 like the Evolutions packs did since that would kill the line in its infancy before we can get more collector-targeted army builder packs. I'd love to see more Endor rebels and Tantive IV defenders in this type of configuration; the pilots are nice but we've gotten way overexposed with pilots in these past 3 years.

Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: Darth Cujo on December 24, 2010, 02:27:09 PM
They had a ton at my local TRU as well. Hopefully they'll go on sale. $30 isn't too bad though for 4 figures. Definitely worthwhile if they go on sale.

They also had 2 each of the Masters of the Universe Classics 2-packs. Merman vs. Aquaman and Stratos vs Hawkman (I think it's hawkman). Nice to finally see some new MOTU on retail shelves. Even if it is stuck with some superheroes.

I picked up the Separatist Gunship at my TRU today. Strangely enough, there were only 2 left of the 2nd pilot pack there. None of the 1st set. I grabbed one while they were there. I was expecting them to sit a lot longer on the shelf, like the two TFU sets a year ago. Unless those were just Christmas returns from another store and mine hasn't gotten their shipment in... cuz I didn't see a shelf tag for them either.

For those who were asking: The UPC for set #2 is 6 53569 57413 2 and the SKU # is 181218. They are English-only packaging.

Wal-Mart has the BARC Speeder w/Clone Trooper Jesse Deluxe wave and the Battle of Orto Plutonia and Invasion of Utapau BPs in Cdn multi-lingual packaging. The Deluxe figures have a multi-lingual sticker on them indicating a Battle Card is included. The BPs do not have a sticker like the US package showing that a Battle Mat is included but in small type in 4 languages it is indicated that the cards and a Battle Mat is included. I did not buy a BP to verify this.

The case assortments are standard.

Deluxe: BARC/Jesse, BARC with sidecar/Obi-Wan, Freeco/Trooper, AT-RT/Boil
BPs: Battle of Orto Plutonia, Invasion of Utapau, Jedi Showdown, Anti-Hailfire Squad

I also found the entire Wave 4 of TCW (Shaak Ti, Embo, R4-P17, Mando Warrior, Boba) and picked them all up.


Edit:
Picked up the new ARC Troopers BP and Mando Warriors BP at TRU tonight for the $25 sale price.

Did this wave Hit the regular TRUs or Wallmarts yet? I'm kinda interested in a couple of these figures, but I wasn't looking for them in my hunting. Just wondering if I'm out of luck on a Clone Wars Fett and Embo?

A couple of people reported parts of this wave at regular TRUs and I've seen parts also at various TRUs but never the complete wave. Sometimes I know the wave has been there at other TRUs because of the production date on  the repacks. Someone at AFN reported this wave at Wal-Mart but I've not seen any other WM reports and have not seen them myself at WM. Interestingly enough TRU.ca currently has all 5 figures in stock which leads me to believe more could be showing up at regular TRUs.

Yikes, when you put it that way...

Hopefully, Hasbro sees how much of a hit this figure is and puts him in the Saga Legends line eventually. Like they did with Zuckuss and Snowspeeder Luke. Great figures that deserved more peg time.

''Peg Time''

I love the term.

Having picked up my wave this weekend, I can honestly say the Gamorrean is the best looking figure I've seen in a long, long time.  Definitely worthy of more Peg Time and a spot in the saga legends!

ROTJ wave found at GTA TRU, ON SALE!!!!!  Multiple cases being put out while I was there.  An H case and J case.  Both have only one of each of the wave, plus either 2 Anakin (not Vader), Clone Trooper from ROTS wave and Vader and the Sandtrooper.

Worst, or best part depending on your timing, they were all UNPUNCHED.  Of the 4 cases I saw opened, none of the Jedi figs had the peg hole punched out.

Picked up one of each.

I found the remnants of the ROTJ wave at TRU in Laval, Quebec, on my way back home this evening.

Based on what I could see, there were two boxes and at least one customer was there before me and grabbed all the Gammos (either 1 or 2 per case, meaning he left with both or the four of them). There was thus one figure of each, + double the load of the Sandtroopers, Vader and the ROTS Clone Troopers.

I picked up a Luke and a Wicket, since I already have all others twice thanks to my friend José. :)

So the hunt for Green Pigs in open!

I stopped in at my local TRU at lunch today to look for the ROTJ wave. I was so excited when I walked into the SW aisle and saw the stock boy opening some Hasbro cases. I waited a few minutes and it turned out it was only some old TFU figure packs they must have had sitting in the back for a year... 2 full cases worth!  :mad0137: They FINALLY got rid of the ones that were warming the shelf for the last 10 months! Now I have to look at a dozen more of them. He was also restocking with the latest wave of CW battle packs.  :indifferent0020:

Don't worry. The wave her ein Quebec is hitting a plenty in both Walmart and TRU stores. They'll get to you eventually. I just found at least 10 sets sitting on the pegs here in TRU Boisbriand, on the North Shore of Montreal. The problem: no Gamorean Guards at all. Niet. Nada. These were targeted, carefully selected, as I could clearly see that other figures were there, filling the 9 or so pegs (so roughly about 10 of each figures at least). The green pigs were nowhere to be seen. Either a greedy store employee, or someone who decided the Gammos were worth millions on the black market.

When I see these things, I feel sorry to be a SW collector. I mean, I have what I want, but would never empty all the pegs of one single figure to make sure there's none left for the kids. It's not like the guy took only 1-2 or even 3. If the case assortment contained 1 Gammo, then he picked all 10. If the cases contained 2 of each, then the guy took all 20. That's a real shame, to be honest. What about the kids that try to find a single Gammo, and there's none left? Thats greedy and stupid. :~/~:

I was thinking something similar tonight. I'm still hoping for two more but I also thought, sheesh! The scalpers are going to have a field day with these! And yeah, the poor kids. Then I was thinking, man, I wish there was a way that after I get my last 2 I could buy them to keep them from greedy scalpers but somehow "distribute" them to kids! If it was Xmas maybe I'd donate them to a toy drive or something at least! Hopefully Hasbro gets word of their popularity and is quick to Saga Legends-the hell out of them to drive down scalper prices!

Oh wait! Here's the kind of place where they might be going:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Star-Wars-vintage-collection-gamorrean-guard-army-luke-/140505964581?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20b6cee025 (http://cgi.ebay.com/Star-Wars-vintage-collection-gamorrean-guard-army-luke-/140505964581?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20b6cee025)

Well at least a kid with around $100 to spare gets themselves a small army of pigs and the best ROTJ Luke ever yet produced! So there's that...

Yeah, I got excited yesterday when I saw a whole whack of figures, albeit in a bin of death.  Turns out they were all wave 1 of Saga Legends (Maul, Vader, Yoda, C-3PO, R2-D2, Obi-Wan, Anakin, etc.).  Not sure what the point of leaving these until the last day of the sale was.

The wait for wave 3 continues....

I hope you're right! But even if it is only the occasional "collect them all" type of kid that wants one I still feel sorry for them. I never doubted we were part of the problem only that perhaps less scrupulous collectors and/or scalpers were taking what few would remain out of their hands. When we were kids my brother was mad for the Gamorreans so I'm sure there's still a few younglings out there that are hoping to find them!

This site, and sites similar, are the direct reason that this type of hoarding/scalping happens.  Nobody randomly goes in and cleans out 10 of one figure without prior knowledge that it is a desireable figure.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: jediburrick on January 29, 2011, 01:18:41 PM
Scalping may happens and in fact do happens. But nobody states that this haul have been made by only 1 person. On the Quebec forum, someone stated that his mother took 4 GG at this particular TRU; the rest must have been bought by 1 or more other person.

And also keep in mind those who build dio. I personnaly need 7 GG for my Jabba dio. I would not have hesitated 1 second to grab all I need all at once, but that would be all I'd take. And no, it wasn't me (I've never been to that TRU) ;D

No, in fact the SW/collector sites are a necessity and very usefull to bring us all the information we're looking for. But they're like science : neither good nor bad; it all depends on how you use them.

Post by: Hellboy on January 29, 2011, 01:31:03 PM
I think it's the time of year.... the usual scarcity of waves or dropped waves in Jan/Feb... the fact we are at least 2 waves behind the US... and the fact that the ROTJ wave is probably the best assortment of figures out of all the waves in general that is putting a bit of a panic on the hunt. The Gams are sort of an army builder (if you are a Jabba's Palace fan) and it's always good to have at least 2 so I do believe they will be in short demand unless they get released in subsequent waves.

Would I pay scalpers prices for one? No. They will come out again eventually. Would I like to have my hands on a few without waiting for months to get another? For sure.

jediburrick and hellboy make good points in defense of our collector collective here at this helpful site. Thirdfloor is likely correct in presuming that worms or spaceslugs out there will use this well meaning information to benefit their greed. A wretched hive of scum and villainy scalpers are, heh. No scruples or common decency have they. Hasbro did include 3 different weapons with the Gamorrean in hopes we would buy more than 1. I like to think they are also watching sites like this to gague supply to the demand and will insure this figure a continued run in some form. But, as we all know, Hasbro is anything but consistent in their logic. I may bend to ebay and pay up to 50% above retail tops. Or I may attempt the nearly impossible feat of waiting for the dust to settle in the hopes I will eventually get the 4 or 5 little piggies I covet. The only one I have was from a comic shop at only $13 (a small markup above retail all things considered) Don't let the dark times ruin our fun guys. Since August we've only managed to get up to wave 3, but I think the gray skies are gonna clear up. So put on a happy face. (yes I was singing that in my head as I was writing it)

Peace out to you all (except for the spaceslugs -- May you all rot on an asteroid)

Post by: LordBaylin on January 29, 2011, 09:17:31 PM
I think people are not looking at the bigger picture here. The Gamorrean Guard is a completely new sculpt, therefore they had to make new molds for every part of it,
this costs a lot of money. So I guarantee you will see this figure shipping in the vintage packaging for all of 2011 and it will then go to legends assortment, and a battle pack or deluxe 2 pack or a multi pack or Jabba's sale barge, or a cereal premium or fast food premium. Just like everything else that is even remotely popular. You just have to be patient and always remember you can never be the first to own anything.
 I've been collecting Star Wars since June of 95 and have never had a problem finding any figure even if it didn't come to Canada. The only figure I had trouble finding was the R2-D2 comtech with Princess Leia hologra m, it came out around 1999- 2000, I think. When that wave came to Canada it went to clearance right away for $2.00 at Wal Mart. I found about 20 of them and sold a bunch on Ebay for $20-$30 and trust me when I tell you I don't do that very often!

Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: jediburrick on January 29, 2011, 09:50:07 PM
Hmm, Revan and Malak were also completely new sculpts and therefore they had to make new molds for every part of them.

I took those 2 as examples, but how many other sought after figures still haven't been re-released?

And BTW I'm not saying that GG won't be release again. I don't know what are Hasbro's plans relatively to this figure.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: jjreason on January 29, 2011, 10:13:55 PM
Sites like this CAN contribute to what we call "scalping". That's why we have a site policy to NOT disclose the specific stores or locations of new finds in the open forums. We have gotten lax on this, and potentially allowed a few ebay horders to grab a few gamoreans.

Let's get back to basics and post the specific stores in specific cities in the Provincials where they belong.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: LordBaylin on January 30, 2011, 01:11:06 AM
 I understand that there have been other figures released in the past that have never seen the light of day again, but they are usually obscure characters not the mainstream ones, regardless of popularity. Gammoreans = $ to Hasbro they like money so we'll see lots of them, I myself own 9 of potf2 and 3 of the repaints. It is a super sweet figure though, this entire wave is nice.

A retail find is a retail find... this thread is generally where a "heads up" is given to all members. Noting a find in Ottawa or Toronto or Siberia is a perfectly valid entry. The only thing requested in the general forums is a lack of specifics about the store locations in order to deter lurking scalpers from beating us troopers to the shelves.

Several different figures at the local Wal-Mart in ********, AB. Several Vintage ESB, ROTJ and ROTS figures, picked up an ESB Vader myself, and lots of Clone Wars figures. They have alot of Wal-Mart excl Jabba the Hutt, which is marked down to 35.99, and a few Tie Bombers. Zellers has a couple of vintage ESB figures left Cloud Car Pilot and Dengar, alot of Clone Wars Figs, two AT AT's which are of course still at full price $129, two vintage Tie Fighters, and a few of the regular packaged Tie Fighters which come with the Tie Pilot and are $10 more. They also have a few packs of Galactic Heroes, and several of the Galactic Heroes AT AT's. Additionally, they are carrying the Darth Vader Mighty Beans case, and an Emperor Palpatine, and Lando Calrissian Mighty Mugg.

Saw the same at my Zellers this morning. I couldn't find them at Winners so I grabbed one, $29.99 is still a good price. They had also finally stocked with the new CW Target 2-packs, there were about 20 of each! Just grabbed one of each for myself. From WM I picked up the $15 clearance Lego Star Destroyer and $19.92 rollback Jedi Turbo Speeder. Both pretty nice.

Just picked up the most recent wave of Clone Wars figures (Anakin, Ashoka, El-les, Commander Wolfe, Aqua Droid) at an east coast Zellers. In spite of the currently advertised BOGOHO special, the figures were marked down to $6.49. Sweet find.

My wife just found and picked up for me the latest CW wave (Aqua Droid, etc) at a local Zellers. They had just restocked, the only one in my area to have anything new. The best part is they were on sale $6.49 each.

Here is a heads up, I was just on the Chapters website and they have the ROTJ wave listed for 14.95 each. Pricey but I wanted to get some more Gamorrean Guards so I guess it was worth it. Here is a code for $5.00 off olmar11 it is good until April 30. Chapters also has free shipping for orders over $25 so with the coupon and free shipping the price increase is a little easier to swallow considering the price of fuel.
http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/home/Star-Wars/4294966794-cat.html?page=3
Also don't forget to sign up for their plum rewards, it is free and by signing up you get 400 points and when you make your order you get another bonus 100 points anything to help you get some bargains on your Star Wars fetish:
http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/plumrewards/ looks like you have to earn a lot of points to get any real reward but they say they will have plenty of bonus points throughout the year.

Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: powerpig on April 27, 2011, 09:28:47 PM
Found the most recent wave of Clone Wars at Zellers on the east coast, for $6.49 a piece: Eeth Koth, Bariss Offee, Riot Control Clone... but no Commander Colt. I was at two different stores, one of which had duplicates of those three figs, but no Colts in sight anywhere.

Doesn't seem to me that a collector would pick up just Colt and not the other new figs, so I'm going to guess that he's not shipping in this wave (in Canada).
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: jediburrick on April 27, 2011, 10:46:32 PM
I'm not that sure about Colt not being shipped with this wave. When CW wave 2 start to hit, I've seen lots of Zellers with multiples of Ahsoka, Anakin, El-Les and Aqua-Droid, but NO Wolffe. I've finally find one, but this one was particularly hard to find because he's cool looking and sought after by both kids and adult collectors. I'm sure that it'll be the same for Colt.

Well, normally I'd agree, but at the second Zellers I went to, it appeared that they had just stocked the shelves. Two full boxes, 2X of everything, including Koth, Bariss and Riot Control Clone. So I did a bit of research in the wave assortment in the US.

Entertainment Earth lists Wave 9 as having the following figures: 1x ARF Trooper, 1x Battle Droid, 1x R2-D2, 1x Hevy in Training Armor, 1x Anakin (New Outfit), 1x Eeth Koth, 1x Bariss Offee, 1x Clone Commander Colt, 1x Clone w/ Riot Gear, 1x Grievous with Limbs, 1x Rex, 1x Commander Cody.

At Zellers, I saw no traces of Hevy or Colt. Even though I'm sure I got to the second Zellers shortly after they put out stock, I'll concede that someone could have come along and picked up 2X Colt. But Hevy? He's been in this area for weeks, available at all the Walmarts and even TRU. I can't see him disappearing so quickly.

On the other hand, I did find Obi-wan (new outfit). He's never appeared on pegs at Zellers (in this area at least), so it seems clear that he was in the box with the other figures. I think that's evidence that the wave is different in Canada than it is in the US, sadly.

I hope I'm wrong... but remember that we missed out on one wave of figures already (Quinlan Vos, etc.) and a year ago around this time, Hasbro shorted us on Hondo and Aalya Secura (while still shipping a wave that included Commander Bly.)

Hope you're right, and someone just picked it up before me. I really don't want to go through the hassle of importing another fig from the US.

Checked Zellers again this morning. Confirmed that Obi-wan (new outfit) must have been part of that wave in Canada, perhaps replacing Hevy.

Got mine today... I think the ratio must be something like 4 geo speeders and 1 rebel transport rig per case.  From what I saw there were 8 geo speeders and 2 rebel transports on the shelf.  I think Hasbro is really underestimating how well the OT stuff (rebel transports) would sell compared to the geonosian speeders... it should've been more like 3 geo speeders and 2 rebel transports per case.   

Oh well, glad to finally have Mr Ryan Stiles in my collection, now they just need to make a Drew Carey figure  :)
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: Darth Cujo on July 16, 2011, 03:16:05 PM
My local TRU had none of the rebel transport. :( Lots of other deluxe on the shelf. They also had a bunch of blowtorches and cobra commanders from the latest gi joe wave, but of course no cobra troopers or steel brigade figures, so useless for me. Someone beat me to all the good stuff.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: LordBaylin on July 20, 2011, 04:11:04 PM
I finally got to see a case of the deluxe fig w/vehicle asst. they come in cases of 4 and the ratio is 3:1 in favor of the Separatist speeder.
There was not a single male in the store today and getting the females to help me was like pulling teeth!
They kept saying"The computer says in transit so they are not here" and I kept saying "sometimes if there is a truck in the back, it came in yesterday, that they are there and you don't realize it" After the 3rd discussionment one the Supervisors told the girl to go in the back and look, just to basically humor me, and low and behold the first Star Wars case she saw in the pile was the right one.
The thing that kills me the most was that she told me the guys aren't supposed to do that and they could lose their jobs blah blah blah!
Then why did she let the girl go back there? OH, that's it because she knows everything she is omnipotent that's right. Then why was the case there then if you know everything? ( I said in my head as I purchased my 3 Geo Speeders at front cash) one thing I learned a long time ago " don't bite the hand that feeds you!"
This kind of crap makes me crazy!
I tried for the Stealth trooper, that also said"in transit" but she said the first case was the only Star Wars one she saw! Lies! er... I mean UNOBSERVANT!
Oh well i guess I have to go back again tomorrow.
Yaarrgh!

I believe they adjust receipts for 14 days, but you can do a return for 30 or 45 days (i can't remember). So if a sale happens in a month, and they have the item in stock you can rebuy it and return the first one. Sometimes they'll let you do the receipt adjustment beyond 14 days. Depends who you get.

Post by: napseeker on July 27, 2011, 07:58:34 AM
Well this is actually not a big deal because most retailers seem to now price their SW items with the plan to eventually sell them at the "sale price".  If you notice, 25% of $35 = $8.75.  So at the next 25% off sale, they'll sell them for $26.25 ($8.84 per figure) OR at the next 30% off sale, they'd sell for $24.50 (or $8.17 per figure).  This is still crazy expensive for those of us used to $5 or $7 per figures during sales but those collectors who really want the figures in these packs will still breathe a sigh of relief and buy it at the sale price.

My bet would be that we'll next get a 25% off sale, then next month a 30% off sale to get rid of any remaining battlepacks that didn't move at the 25% off sale previously.  XMas will then clear these all out eventually.

I find it strange that these stores employees don't want to sell store products. I mean, these products are meant to be sold. That's the sole purpose of a store, to sell products. If a clerk refused to open a box for me, I would simply go and talk to the manager adn discuss the matter between adults. Maybe that's what you should do...

They have the boxes set out in an organized fashion. When some heathen (aka a Hot Wheels Collector) rummages, rips, drops, throws & ruins everything, it gives all of us a bad name. Do it discreetly or be very polite if someone is at the cart & ask if you could please see if the item you're looking for is in one of the boxes.... if they say no it sucks, but it's because we as the collective toy collectors have ruined it for ourselves by being boorish.

Fair enough. But sometimes when you know there are super limited amounts coming in and you only have so many trips to the store in you, you have to do what you have to do. I try and be as respectful as possible, mostly because I don't want to get caught by the staff and turfed out on my butt though :)

Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: JediPatrick on July 29, 2011, 02:03:33 PM
Found at TRU in the outskirts of Montreal at lunch time today:

Battle Packs (34.99$ for 3 figures?! WHAT???)
2x Assault on Geonosis (Obi-Wan-Old Armor;  Geonosis ARF Trooper; Geonosian Warrior)
1x Cad Banes's Escape (Ahsoka Tano in Space Suit; Cad Bane in Clone Trooper disguise; Anaklin Skywalker in Anakin Skywalker)
2x Defend Kamino (Clone Trooper Fives; ARC Commander Elite; Clone Trooper Echo)
1x The Hunt for Grievous (Captain Rex; General Grievous with Cape; Clone Trooper Kix)

Deluxe Class 1 Vehicles (24.99$)
2x Castas w/ Speeder
2x Clone Trooper w/ Scout speeder
2x Battle Droid w/ Speeder
2x General Grievous w/ Mini Wheel Bike

The price of the Class 1 figures is okay, corresponding to what we used to see in the past. But the price of the new Battle packs at 34.99$ each for only 3 figures (with 1 or 2 repaints) is a steal, especially considering that Target is now selling these at 25$US currently in the US, without any sales going on. Basically, it's like buying 3 carded figures...

Also note the ratio: Cad Bane's BP will certainly become a rarity, especially considering the fact that there's two new figures (yes, Ahsoka is a coompletely new mold, perhaps except the head). EDIT: sorry, after double-checking, Ahsoka is just a repaint of the previous release...

Oh, and the Battle Droid coming with the Separatist little cool speeder is also a new sculpt, at least is can now bend at the knee joint and his blaster can now be attached to his backpack, like he was supposed to be. A very nice modification IMO. I hope this droid will be offered more and more in future packs and future carded CW releases.

Also note the ratio: Cad Bane's BP will certainly become a rarity, ...

This reported ratio differs from what I have seen and what is listed as the wave 1 case contents at both EE and Golden Age Toys although I suppose there could be a unlisted revision case out there:

2x Assault On Geonosis
2x Cad Bane's Escape
1x Defend Kamino
1x Hunt for Grievous.

It's even worse than that as the price reported at both SWCollector and RS is currently $19.99 at Target. Legends has these listed at 32.99 and the case price at GAT is 179.99 which works out to $30 each.

The ratio was what I found at TRU when I was there, but it may be that someone else got there before me to pick up a few items. I did not open the boxes, the stuff was already on the shelves. But I'm glad that the Cad Bane set will not be too scarce...

$24.99 and they had 10 at my local toys rus in an end cap full of deluxe vehicles along with what felt like a 100's of y wings, not to impressed with the y wing especially with the standard of some of the newer vehicles and @ 49.99 forget it!

They did add the targeting computer on the Y wing but its pretty flimsy and hard to get in the right spot. Maybe its my sausage fingers? Also the landing gear on one side likes to collapse. The paint on top of the turret gun was damaged too. Vintage boxes are nice but I miss the windows to see if the product is a dud or not.

The landing gear on the Y-Wing hasn't been addressed???? They've been failing since this ship's inception, at least in the modern line. I never had a vintage one so I can't comment, but I've had 3 modern ones and they've all done this.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Hi there gang,

The first Y-wing I bought, the first version released in the new line, Target POTF I believe it was, had the same problem with the landing gear collapsing. After much frustration and trying to prop it up on a clear plastic card-box, I finally got mad enough to risk disaster and I unscrewed the whole thing separating the upper and lower halves. I found that the chief offending landing pad(the weakest that did not lock open) had been wrongly assembled or rather misaligned. It was a sort of round gear that was simply one notch off. I repositioned it and screwed it all back together, and presto - better than new. Problem solved. Chalk up yet another incident of Hasbro's lack of quality control. If memory serves, I think I had to repeat the process with the gold squadron Y-wing as well. This company is just out to lunch in so many ways :indifferent0020: I don't know how these guys keep their jobs.
Hope that helps, Cheers

That solution sounds like it will work great for all the older y-wings. The problem with the new one is, is that tehre are now two covers on two of the screws. I dont know if they can be easily removed or not, as i have not purchased a Y-Wing. Thanks for the advice though, so i can try and fix my old TAC one.

Crazy price IMO.  I know it's "deluxe" but the speeder pretty much looks like a box.  I really want one as I have an entire coffee table devoted to rebel pilots and ships but I'll wait this one out.

On my way home from visiting family in Ontario, I stopped at a TRU and found several cases of the deluxe vehicles waiting to be put out. They had already been gone through somewhat and 3 of the maybe 5 to 6 boxes had already been opened and the Yavin tech was gone. But I opened one of the others, found him, but then left him in the wild, 25 bucks is steep IMO. I already have two from the first time around plus 4 more techs I got from Tungori so I'm good I think, unless I see him on sale again some day...But I picked up a Y-wing, hope it goes on sale in the next few weeks for a price adjustment, but I like the vintage boxes and with not THAT much new coming out in the next while OT-wise, it didn't hurt so bad...

24.99 for the battle packs thats significantly better. was it those battle packs or those 3 figure starter sets (Thire/yoda/Destroyer, Obi/cody/grievious etc.) that was tagged though as tyhose have the same price.

Could be as Slizer suggests. There are 2 "distinct" tags at my TRU: one with SKN 45-7418 for the new BPs - 34.99 and another with SKN 36-3766 for the value pack BPs - 24.99. The wording on the tags are slightly different. Also the price on the new BPs hasn't changed at TRU.ca.

Hmm, yeah, I think you are right. I was in a hurry so didn't bring one to the scanner. The shelf was a bit of a mess so the tag was likely for those other 3-packs. Guess I just got my hopes up. Either way, I will likely not be picking them up, or if I do it will be at Walmart. I did notice that the repacked figures in them do have some upgrades - Obi-Wan has a soft goods "skirt" and some dirt paint, Grievous has a pretty nice soft cape like the TVC one. Those kind of upgrades would at least make these BPs a little easier to swallow, even if it is only to get the one new figure included. I think the Defend Kamino set has the most attraction, as all the figures are nice upgraded troop builders.

Yeah - went to TRU today - looking to get both of these.  TRU had them - but after seeing them, I passed.  TFU - which I really wanted - after seeing it - just left me flat.  The Sith is too cartoony looking - and the stormies are poorly done - just look cheap.

The Commando set - although the previous ones had less articulation - the new ones look lacking as well.  Not impressed - but saved $100!

I agree. My first thought was that they all looked a little too "meaty"... like the Power of the Force figures. The paint apps looked very thick too. I had no intention of buying any of them and seeing them in person certainly confirmed my decision.

Well, I say thanks for posting. I didn't even know that fan voting was going on. That forum is sort of blended in with a bunch of others, and I rarely go into it. There should be a better way to announce things like that more prominantly on the website. Since our main page is basically a dud, we should make the announcements/news forum stand out more somehow. IMHO, anyways. :)

Yeah that main page issue is really annoying. I did email koda about why we can't just have the URL hoster redirect anyone going to snowtroopers.ca to a thread in our announcement forum but he hasn't gotten back to me.  I hope we clear up this issue SOMEDAY before we get the holographic release of the SW saga!

Okay, good thing Darth Chadus posted in this thread, if Cujo didn't see the two annoucements that I made then I gotta wonder how many people haven't either!  Jeez, does no one besides me use the "View most recent posts on the forum" thingamabob at the bottom of the main forum page?  :mad0218:

Just one more tidbit sent to me by HunterPR/Hasbro today:
"As you prepare your site's list based on your fans' polling, please remember that the winning figure must fit on a basic card, so no oversized characters will be considered, and that the characters must be drawn from existing STAR WARS storytelling, so "behind the scenes" characters are not eligible."

About the TRU exclusive Coronet battle pack, the price isn't too bad considering they are $24.99 in the States.
If you need one you might want to pick it up while the sale is happening they'll probably mark it up to $34.99 like the rest.
I've seen it happen before with other Star Wars toys and exclusives, the first week they have them it seems like a good price until they realize their mistake and jack it up.

Hi gang,
Sorry if I'm sounding like a broken record bashing Hasbro, but unless we bombard Hasbro customer service with complaints they'll never get the message. I feel sorry for anyone who might not yet own either of the 2 vehicles of the Trench Run set and wants them. This is not a fair option at that price. As I can see, no new tooling was required for this set and as such I would rather see the X-wing offered on its own (and no cheap pack-in figure) for $40 max and as Vader's TIE has been released regularly the set makes no sense to me. They can't even be bothered to fix Luke's lightsaber after all these years. I guess they suppose us geeks will be quite willing to toss them $50 for packaging. Also, it wouldn't hurt to send TRU and WalMart suggestions that they insist on Hasbro packing new assortment cases with all figures from that wave and leave "refresh" figures to separate dedicated cases for restocking the older figures as needed. The problem is that retailers take little interest in the assortment breakdown of action figures and I doubt they realize how Hasbro takes advantage of that to sell them old stock at new figure rates. They need to stop making excuses about the viability of creating unique sku #'s for each figure instead of one general sku that does not allow them to track stock properly and insure that they are putting new items on the pegs.
Respects to you all, cheers.

Seems like those last few TRU sales might have worked! Saw what appeared to be at least 3 possibly 5 cases of the AOTC wave packing the pegs this morning at a local TRU. Also at least 3 cases of the newest Saga Legends with the Spacetrooper etc. Which wave is slated to be next for us? The one with the Rebel Fleet Trooper or straight to Ponda and Echo Base soldier?
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!

I thought this wave:

Han Solo
(Bespin Outfit)
Barriss Offee
(Jedi Padawan)   
Rebel
Fleet Trooper   
Bom Vimdin
(Cantina Patron)   
ARC Trooper Commander
(Captain Fordo)   
Logray
(Ewok Medicine Man)

was supposed to be next.  It would be another Hasbro Canada travesty, if we miss it, and move on to the Ponda Baba wave, which has only three new figures.

If that's the wave with the Hoth Echo base soldier the shipment Legends received did not seem to be a repaint of Logray sadly. Perhaps the repaint is either a rumor or will be in a revision case of that wave?

We got bucket loads of the Chewbacca wave (Wave 6) at TRU here on the east coast, which was followed up by a few isolated boxes of the Plo Koon wave (Wave 4) at Walmart and then at TRU. I was going bonkers trying to find the Seripas wave (Wave 5), and had pretty much given up hope they'd show here, in spite of apparently wide distribution in Ontario.

However, I found them one day last week while I was hitting up Zellers looking for the Taun-Taun. Last place I expected to see them, really, but there they were! So make sure your toy runs include Zellers. :D

You are right the TCW wave 6 case has CW58 Piell, CW59 armoured Savage, CW63 Chewbacca, CW64 R7-D4 and CW65 Jar Jar Binks along with CW55 shirtless Savage, CW62 jet-pack Rex, CW48 Wolfe and CW52 Colt repacks. For some reason Hasbro felt the need to put shirtless Savage in the wave 4, 5 and 6 cases plus he's coming back in 2012.

Which wave is the Armoured Savage Oppress supposed to be in? I found several cases of the Chewbacca wave tonight on the shelves and with them were shirtless Savage Oppress'. I thought that was the wave that was supposed to have the Armoured Savage in it?

You are right the TCW wave 6 case has CW58 Piell, CW59 armoured Savage, CW63 Chewbacca, CW64 R7-D4 and CW65 Jar Jar Binks along with CW55 shirtless Savage, CW62 jet-pack Rex, CW48 Wolfe and CW52 Colt repacks. For some reason Hasbro felt the need to put shirtless Savage in the wave 4, 5 and 6 cases plus he's coming back in 2012.

It's weird.. I went to my local TRU this morning and they had 5 Armoured Savage Oppress' on the shelf and not a heck of a lot else except for 'ripped apart' two-packs. So I got to scoop two of them  :rockon:

TRU has TVC wave 9 (Bastila Shan, Echo Base Rebel Soldier, Ponda Baba, Keyan Farlander) on Canadian cards for 5.95. Unlike US wave 9 there are no Prototype Fett stickers on the cards or redemption forms in the blister. Farlander, Wicket, Endor Capture Luke and Admiral Ackbar are on Revenge cards. Case contents same as US cases including VC39 Death Star Escape Luke.

I saw several boxes of the Movie Heroes and Vintage Ep 1. figures and vehicles on the floor of ToysRUs in Vancouver.  I was thrilled, until the stock boy put them back on his cart, to take them to the back.  He did not want to get him in trouble due to the "shelf date".  I showed him on my smart phone, that the embargo had been lifted, but he was afraid for his job.


I hate HASBRO sometimes.  OK, most times.  Ok, Ok, ALL the times I can not find figures I want, which is 99% of the year!

They might still increase it for TVC and "Discover the Force" though. These are just the Movie Heroes figures (like Saga Lengends). I'm sure they have no clue what that means, but some of those figures are pretty ancient and don't even deserve a $10 price let alone $11.

I was glad to find TPM wave at Walmart today. Left Dofine in favor of getting one with a proper paint job later. Left Kenobi and Jinn (don't need repacks thanks) I won't buy another battle droid till they give em better arms, so they can sell this one to someone else. The 8 figures I got look rather well done. I hope they're still grand once I get around to opening them (you never know for sure about details like absent peg-holes in feet and clumsy articulation till you pop them open--fingers crossed). The clerk I spoke to seemed unimpressed by pointless street dates since what's likely to happen is we'll see this wave right through to next Christmas due to overproduction that will slow subsequent waves and leave us with HasCan scratching their heads yet again as to why us uninterested collectors force them to cancel later waves. I know I'm being a Negative Nancy but this is Hasbro we're talking about. They're like that neighbor's dog that keeps crapping on your lawn and no matter how many times you shoot it with a pellet gun as it stoops to poop, you can bet he'll be back doing it tomorrow and again the day after that.

Cheers and happy hunting

Popped by a WM this morning. They had a lone Sith Infiltrator and Anakin's Podracer on a bottom shelf. I tried scanning them but they hadn't been entered in the system yet, and no price tag on the shelf. It almost seems like a return from another store or a stray case that got put out by accident. No clue how they would have priced it had I tried to buy one. I might have been able to argue it should be for the $10 clearance price, but there were no other SW ships to use as comparison proof.

I also popped into a TRU, nothing new but they had their inventory contractors there doing the whole store, so hopefully that means the reset is coming soon! Even though I've got pretty much everything already ordered for the TPM launch, it's still exciting to see new product on the shelves for once.

Are you breaking street date if you didn't actually put the figures on the shelf? After all, it doesn't say anything about handing the case right to the customer!  :winking0071:

One of the local shops saves me each wave when they come in so I don't have to do any searching and never miss any figures. I was told the store even received a phone call reminding them of the street date.

I was also at my local WM in Niagara this evening, same thing there. New CW and complete vintage TPM wave. Only 1 case of each so far. Also the new battlepacks and a couple of vehicles. Again, 1 case each. They are still resetting the shelves, so more should come. I don't think WM cares about the street date.

One question: is it confirmed if we are getting the WM exclusive stuff? Like the "Discover the Force in 3D" line? Because I did not see any note of that on their shelf stock layout sheets that were still taped up. That would really suck if it doesn't come here.

Oh, BTW, the TVC figures were still priced $9.92 (or whatever their normal price is) - no increase like TRU (yet).

Saw the new SW setup at the front of the store at my local TRU. Rather depressing. They had literally 72 pegs of clone wars figures between the store front, an end cap and the regular star wars section. Plus 15 pegs of the movie heroes stuff. And three sparsely populated pegs of vintage in the regular section. The store front section didn't even have room for vintage, and when asked they said they had nothing in the back. No sign of wave 9 or the TPM wave.  :shakehead:

Seriously, 72 pegs of clone wars?  :mad0218: I know CW outsells vintage, and probably by a fair bit, but 24 to 1 ?!

... I know CW outsells vintage, and probably by a fair bit, but 24 to 1 ?!

As sad as it may look like, not overflooding the pegs with TVC Wave 1 will certainly raise the odds of seeing further waves here in Canada. But knowing H Can too much, I fear that an ominous TPM flood will most probably happen.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: jjreason on January 18, 2012, 06:54:53 PM
I agree, we'll see a flood here at some point -although I must say we haven't really had a bad one since the Yellow Naboo Guard fiasco - unless you want to count the swinging Yarnas....

My TRU had the area under construction - tons of signage, all at the front of the stoor near the entryway, but no toys populating it just yet. Inside the store there was a half-decent selection of movie heroes figures (along with the remaining horde of Christmas cw figures), but nothing else new.

EDITED: I had a little bird advise that TRU isn't even expecting the EPI Vintage wave in stores until the end of this week due to shipping slowdowns - the closing of the seasonal "express" locations, etc. They may not be sticking to the street date on purpose, but the figures might not even be into the stores in many cases until closer to the end of the month. The bird also advised that you can expect the wave in good numbers are TRU (as per usual with any Wave 1 at TRU really).

Hopefully there's a sale in the next 2 weeks.  Of course there were a bajillion clone wars and movie heroes figures which I could've cared less about. A store employee said that the TVC line was selling poorly compared to Clone Wars which is why the store ordered so few TVC... to which I of course replied with an expletive and commented on if they'd actually gotten in some NEW waves like wave8 and 9, they'd have seen way better sales instead of relying on getting rid of those #$!%! pegwarming 4LOMs to account for their sales data.

$1 is not a huge increase.  How long have they been $10?  And how many sales do they have.  There's no way they make money on these figs at the rate they put them on sale.  And who's to say that Hasbro hasn't raised the cost to the retailers.  If both TRU and Walmart have put them up, chances are they're just passing on a price increase from the manufacturer.

Ah FishFan, I recall the last time they went up by $1, way back in the transition from EpI to Power of the Jedi. TRU dared to go to 10 or it might have even been $11.99 - there was a major outcry back then as well. Needless to say the hobby survived the temporary increase.  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

Let's remember when the price of figures were $5.99 US, they charged us $9.99 CDN. Don't even get me started on what LEGO does to us in Canada.  You have to get a 30% discount in Canada just to get American pricing.  Walmart is charging $9.93 for the new figures and you can bet they are making good margins.  TRU has been raising their margins across the board for awhile, ever since Walmart backed off of trying to be the number one TOY place and scaled back their toy section. I am hoping TARGET's arrival brings on some new competitiveness between the retailers.

What really grinds my gears is more the fact that Hasbro never seems to learn from this problem and find a way to fix it. I give them big kudos for I think it was 2008 TAC when to my shock they did get in a wave that I expected not to arrive (given that it conformed to the pattern you mentioned) and there it was on TRU's pegs right after XMas.  I really thought they'd finally addressed this issue and made our lives easier.  Of course then it's only gotten worse... I'm hoping that with Target's arrival this will both increase retailer orders for waves and get TRU to go back to competitive pricing (no way will I buy full waves if they are selling for $11 a pop, I just cannot afford that with all the many different lines I'm collecting).

I saw a bunch of newly shelved value 2pks at my TRU. The entire Embo/Shaak Ti/Boba Fett wave was there.
They also had all of the new stuff out in a big display at the front - TVC, MH, CW and the new vehicles, BPs, Titaniums, etc.

Still no new Lego in my area - WM had empty shelves with price tags for the new stuff.

My TRU had put out everything this morning : CW, MH, Vintage figures, the deluxe figures, the medium size TPM vehicles (Pod racers and Sith infiltrator) and the other non 3 3/4" related stuff.  Only thing I didn't see was the TRU exclusive pod racer set.

Hate to say it, but I think you like many other people missed it. I missed the whole wave. They showed up in small numbers I believe and now that we're into the TPM push I dont expect to see it again. Though theres always the possibility you'll stumble upon one. Hope the helps.

I found her at my local Loblaws today.

On another not, I went to Wal-Mart today and they had a sheet with price tags set up for the nightcrew and it's for next week's flyer. Off-handly I don't remember all of them, but I know there were at least three of those Planet Lego sets (12.44$ each), Maul's lightsaber and Luke's Landspeeder. That last one is set to be 29.94$ and I have to ask: is that the vintage Landspeeder that came out last year or something entirely new?

The 'Luke's Landspeeder' sounds like the Walmart exclusive Lego set #8092 that has been out in the U.S. and Canada for the last couple of years.  I was at the Lego store in Etobicoke (Sherway Gardens Mall) this weekend and they had the 'Luke's Landspeeder' there too.

You know, that would make an awful lot of sense. Cause I was pretty sure that Vintage Landspeeder was a Target/Zellers thing. Guess we shall find out on Wednesday when the new flyer starts or if they decide to put it up online before then.

There's 2 still on the pegs at my local superstore today for 4.97 on sale.

I just stopped by 2 superstores sale on all figures (vintage/saga/clones) but nothing much left I picked up another Saga Legends Stormie (VOTC) for 4.97. Might have something to do with a 30 something lady putting every vintage figure they had in stock at the first superstore i stopped @ in her cart. Must of been at least 30 figures.  :mad0137:

Was hoping to pricematch with the flyer so stopped by:
 Zellers (absolute rubbish nothing good)
 London Drugs (they had one figure, Wicket)
 TRU had a massive sale on. But apart from clone wars and new Phantom Menace not much else. I did manage snag another rebel speeder transport for 15 bucks!

Zellers has finally put out the new SW - figures (TCW, MH wave 1, TVC), BPs and Class Is. The shocker is the price of basic figs when I scanned them - 12.99 and there were shelf tags at one of the Zellers showing the 12.99 price - ridiculous. BPs were 34.99.

The only good news was they mispriced the Class Is as SW Transformers Class Is and they were coming up at 14.99. Plus they seem to getting cases consisting of mostly BARC Speeders w/Clone Trooper could even be full cases as I didn't see any other Class Is and considering the lack of this vehicle at other retailers.

They also managed to misprice the TCW Anakin so that it was coming up at 14.99. YMMV

The Superstore Flyer isn't specific enough. The only figure they show is an older Clone Wars figure and most stores will give you grief without the proper product identification (line/sku). You might get lucky at some stores but I wouldn't count on it. My Zellers is a stickler for details.

When I did this at TRU, they didn't want to give it to me at first cause they said it wasn't for the VC.  I pointed out that it says ALL 3 3/4" figures.  The lady called Superstore to confirm that it included VC and that they were in stock before giving me the price match.  It was worth it though.  Got VC Maul for $4.97.

I am guessing that the higher price is because they are closing down the stores at the end of September.  They will be closedfor 6 months and then reopen as Targets.  All stock will have to go, so expect to see 50% off signs in the summer and that is why the price increase, so when they do sell the stuff, they still make good margins.  Just a guess.

I'm not so sure... they're not all gonna be converted to Targets at the same time, and there are even some stores that are supposed to be staying as Zellers for the foreseeable future. HBC didn't sell the Zellers brand off, only the rights to most of the store leases. The company is supposed to continue existence, for a couple years at least - probably more in cities that aren't getting Targets.

The deleted scene figs are nice.... I picked them up from my local comic shop (The owner now gives me first pick of the new arrivals!!)

Getting sick of the hunt... especially now that the comic shop and retail (non-sale) prices are so close.

---------------------------

Only 4 left for me of the 87 figures released to date:

VC 28 - Wedge
VC 41 - Stormtrooper (Return variant)
VC 54 - Capt Fordo
VC 64 - Slave Leia (Return variant)

I have (unopened) duplicates of several figs (incl Gamo Guard)... If anyone has one or more of the figures that they're willing to sell or trade for, pls PM me.

thx,

VT

I was going to post something, but looks like I dont have to..haha

BUT anyways...friend went to Disney, and he brought me back Deleted Scene Lando, and Deleted Scene Colonel Cracken. He was told by the sales person, that these are the hard ones to find. Now friend, is not a star wars fan, so he was just going by what he was told...so I take it, these are NOT hard to find? Since Hellboy found them here in Canada.

Just thought he might of gotten them IN Florida not Disney, but checked, got the Disney price tag...HAHAHA

The card is also in English, no Spanish or French.

I have only seen them at 2 of the 4 TRU locations I frequent in the GTA and only what appears to have been 1 case each. Both times all of the Deleted Scene figs were hanging except for Luke. They rang up at the newer $10.99 price.

Rebel Commando (Revenge card, black variant)
Endor Han
TIE Pilot
B-wing Pilot
Jedi Luke (Palace card)

So... is that the ROTJ carded VC20 Yoda then? I see it showed up at retail after all.

I'm sure there's lots of US-based collectors over on Rebelscum that would jump at the chance to do that trade with you!

My local TRU had 2 cases on Malgus' wave and  case of ROTj Deleted scene. Both Malgus were gone and I expect that it's a clerk that took em, he always grab the cool toys when he is opening the cases, I know he told me so when "cool" figures were released the first time. But he lft me 2 Imperial Navy Commander and a deleted scene Lando. I left the 2 vader, hoth luke and CW anakin

I actually just asked a TRU employee about this a few days ago if they were allowed first dibs on the new figures being put out onto the pegs.  He said there wasn't any restrictions i.e. no waiting period before he could just go and snatch them off the pegs to buy BUT that if the management sees an employee always buying up the same action figure over and over again, they will usually discipline the guy, since the assumption is that he's hoarding rare or valuable figures for scalping on ebay or kijiji.

I questioned if managers really knew what was valuable and what was maybe just an army builder, but he commented they're not as dumb as some collectors/customers might think, they do have a general idea of what's hot and what's not.

Yeah I can imagine there have been complaints made by hot wheels horders over the years about certain cars never showing up & theorizing the stock boys are getting them. I'm not gonna lie, I've worked in the past at making friends working at these stores in hopes of getting notices that certain things were in OR even have them held for me. Not 100 percent successful but you can't blame a guy for trying.

I was at my local Superstore yesterday,  I saw the vintage pegs labelled at $2.47 each.  Of course not a figure to be found; last week they had about 20 figures on the pegs, mostly old figs.  Did I just miss out on a clearance sale?  What concerns me the most is that does this mean they are phasing out the vintage sku?    Still lots of Movie Heroes and Clone Wars at the reg price.    :sign0065:

Yeah, there's not much there worth picking up from any line.  The only thing I'm holding out for a deeper discount on is the GI Joe Skystriker.  My Zellers still has tons of them, gotta wait for at least 50%.

August will probably be when the deep deep liquidation starts.  I know my local store is closing Sept. 1.

How much would the Skystriker be priced at when it hits 50%?  A couple of months back, the Skystriker was found for around $24-$30 (depending on your luck and timing) at some of the Winners stores in Ontario. That said, quantities were really low. There were only 3 or 4 that showed up at mine and they went quick even at $30. You may want to check yours just in case...

It wouldn't scan in their system (although the recon fighter did - $24.99).  When they called to toys to check the price they must have scanned an older deluxe set, and gave it to me for $19.99.  Surprised me to see it, as Zellers hasn't had anything new in 3-4 months.

I was in the Boston area for a few days this week and stopped in several Target stores hoping to find something new (like the exclusive 3-pack) but the only things I saw were the usual peg warmers that we have up here, only lots more of them!  All still at $9.99 each.

It's definetely the TVC one. The "pen" in his right pocket, the full holster, both hand have the index in a trigger position, he's small. The knees bend and turn. And the Helmet have a hard time staying on.

Post by: sinkie on July 16, 2012, 09:44:18 AM
And he's blond?

I actually meant maybe someone, as some sort of joke, took a TVC one, rubbed off the insignia, then returned him just to give someone a "variant" thrill! But who knows! Maybe it is a variant, I've got about 6 of these guys now so I'm going to go check on them, maybe I didn't look carefully enough.

Usually it is his "left" arm that has the insignia but...

...just checked what I had and sure enough one of the carded ones I have and have not opened appears to have no insignia either!!! Unless his arm is twisted around and it is hiding under his left armpit???

Did you check for that possibility?

But I think we might have a variant on our hands!

Both arms are logoless and they are not twisted. I should have checked before opening. grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Found the elusive Class I Deluxe Republic Attack Dropship yesterday at Walmart in the Montreal area. For those who don't know which one this is, here it is attached...

Only one on the shelves. Probably the most sought after Class I Vehicle at the moment, as seen on eBay with prices outrageously ranging from 60 to 90 USD.

This is a very neat little ship. Very clever action feature to deploy Clone Trooper troops. It is certainly a nice toy for kids. Too bad kids will never get their hands on such a toy considering the low numbers coming out of the factory...  :-\

I had a feeling that was the case. I was going to look up a case assortment for the Fox wave, you saved me the trouble. So maybe no Scuba Ahsoka wave in Canada then?
One extra note, they were on tri-lingual packaging, so good news for those in Quebec.

Walmart has been the surprise retailer for my area this past few months - CW waves 2 & 4 and TVC waves 11 & 12 so far, although in small quantities. Meanwhile TRU has had NOTHING.

I actually wouldn't mind the light up sabre vader. Is it just a regular figure in the Heroes line? Or are these light up figures somehow differentiated in packaging? I have been sort of looking but not very hard. Anything non-vintage blends together for me. :(

They are in the standard MH (Movie Heroes) packaging as the rest of the line except they have a little circular window to "press the button" and activate the feature.

It's frustrating that they didn't just go with the old "screw in the back" approach, so that you could just unscrew a cover on the back and easily remove or replace the battery. Probably a cost-saving measure. I agree - it's tough to pay $11+tax for a Vader with a cool gimmick that will one day stop working. That said, if they had made an Old Ben with this light-up feature, I would've had a hard time not buying that...

Sometimes the pleasures of certain figures are short lived anyway. I got the Obi Wan and Qui Gon, and love the light up feature. Will get the Darth when I see him as well. I'm sure to get at least a year or two of light up pleasure out of him. I just wish the light stayed on for a little bit, after letting go of the button.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!

But when the battery starts to corrode and leak it is pretty much garbage. Whereas a figure without this can at least be resold, possibly. I too would have a hard time resisting old Ben but I hope I would! :)

Nonsense, I know you - you'd cave the second you saw him on the pegs... as would I :)   Sometimes we tell ourselves that we have the willpower to resist so that we can sleep better at nights. But we cave... we always cave. You know this to be true.  :D

I really hope that when it comes time to release FX-7 on vintage card that they do a light-up feature, or something special, as opposed to just re-releasing the same old mold. I did like the small improvements they made to Gonk for the 3pack, although I was hoping for a sound chip quite frankly.

Guys, start stalking your local Walmart clearance and/or SW aisle: $5 ROTJ YODA!

I found 2 cases of the ROTJ Yoda wave freshly hung on clearance pegs in the Fort Erie WM. I grabbed 2x Yoda, 2x Fordo and 1x Fleet Trooper, all for $5 each. I almost peed my pants when I saw them there. It's been so long since I've had that feeling at any regular retail location. Too bad my trip to Buffalo wasn't so fruitful today though.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!

Well, the ad in the flyer is ambiguous. It says "vintage and saga" There haven't been "saga" figures for a few years, (and will be again next year), and basically EVERY figure on the pegs at my walmart was ringing in full price. I found a light up vader so figured I'd try and buy it for the $5. After about 10 minutes of them investigating and trying to figure out what figures the ad applies to, they finally said it must be an error and I got vader for free. At one point the checkout lady said it's not under the sale because the package didn't say 3 3/4" on it (while the ad did).  :crazy:

Now there are 2 skus in tiny print at the bottom of the flyer, but the average person is not going to know what those are, and the employees can't even figure out what is meant by "vintage and saga", so it is one messed up ad. Throw in the fact that vintage is now on its second sku (since the TPM wave), there is mass confusion.

Walmart is messed up too with keeping their prices in line with their signage. I've gotten a free can of penguin pasta 3 times because they still have the sale tag on the shelf and never remove it. Am I taking advantage of SCOP? Yup. But how many people have bought that item simply because they thought it was on sale and never check their bill or check only when they get home? Always check your bills on the way out if not in line!! :)

Well, the ad in the flyer is ambiguous. It says "vintage and saga" There haven't been "saga" figures for a few years,

Saga refers to Saga Legends figures. Most of the WMs I visited have got in 1-2 cases of 2011 Saga Legends - Hoth Han, Snowspeeder Luke, Jango, Grievous, DD, Stormie... along with 1-2 cases of the TVC Wave 8 revision case with Yoda. It seems WM probably only intended these figures to be on sale although one wouldn't get that impression from the ad. The Saga Legends figures scanned for $5. I assume HasCan offered WM a deal on these cases to get them out of the warehouse.

This rollback is confusing the Walmart staff! I picked up a few VTC storm troopers, Boba Fett and light up Vader. The vintage figures rang up at the till as full price and Vader was $5. The lady wasnt going to give me the $5 price for the vintage figures, until I pointed out that the flyer said vintage figures.

Also, all the vintage figures I scanned at the price checkers (old and new) scanned as $5 at my Walmart. Weird.

In reponse to Darth's searth for Yoda, the figures I am seeing in WalMarts at $5 are on Canadian ROTJ cards.  I have Yoda on an Empire card but it dates back to 2004 and the Original Trilogy Collection in the plastic protector box.  The only other one I have on a new "Vintage style" card is is the 2010 Revenge of the Sith card - exact same figure as the ROTJ card but with a different cardback picture.

I remembered the sticker incorrectly. It's a tri-lingual sticker which states "SPEAKS IN ENGLISH" on the first line. The second line is "PARLE EN FRANÇAIS" which I assume is a mistake and that the MTT does not speak French. The third line is in Spanish and states "speaks in English".

Sigthings of the "Lost line wave" with their "Vintage card" version as well at Walmart in the Montreal area tonight. Saw all these on their "Blue Lost Line" cardback version, as well as a few on their Vintage cardback version.

I found a full set of both at Wal-Mart in southern Ontario as well.

 Great, I've been holding out hoping these would come here, and of course get the usual markup slap. Depending on how these sell I'm just going to wait for their sales, all part of the game.

I know they are on the expensive side, but probably still cheaper than having to get them from ebay if they never showed up north of the border.

And I am sure TRU will have a sale soon enough...

I'm glad I sold all my pilots including my custom ones.  If I didn't, I'd be cursing TRU for the ridiculous price but as is, I decided to not have any pilots at all.

Agreed. Since I was only interested in a few I waited for some good ebay deals and was able to get the ones I wanted for pretty cheap (relatively speaking of course!).

... my pilots including my custom ones. 
Those are some great pilots though!!  :winking0071:

Especially when you consider the fact that Hasbro had been at a point that they were double packing ewoks on to a single card, i.e. Romba & Graak (TAC), Leektar & Nippet (08Legacy), Wicket and Logray (POTF2).

So technically there should have been ten ewoks in this battlepack.... :winking0071:

It's hard to grasp Hasbro's thinking on these recent price increases.  Speaking as a long-term collector I'm already pushing the limits of display area, so the pricing hikes are helping to make decisions easier (sort of...). 

This could lead to pushing away long-term collectors and scaring off the newbies. :confused0024:

I saw the Pilots and Ewoks packs here in Mississauga for the first time and I was shocked at the pricing.  I thought they were going to be similar to the US pricing of $40 but here they are $54.99!!  I find it very hard to justify that kind of price.

I was shocked as well. Found them the other day and I made the purchase, but am holding tightly to that receipt for a price adjustment. Even then it'll be expensive for a box set. I was hoping to get two ewok sets to play a little mix and match with the accessories, but at that price... ugh!!! Incidentally they only had 1 ewok set left and about 1/2 a dozen pilot sets, so I'm thinking the ewok set is the more popular one. At least at my local TRU.

Also picked up a speeder bike with the same hope for an adjustment. Otherwise they will all be going back to the store. I'm not convinced I want to keep the speeder bike anyways, as I was fine with the old ones to be honest. Oh well. I have a month or so to decide...

I picked up the Ewok pack today for $41 and change - it was 25% off.  It looks like TRU's pricing policy is to overcharge on the so called regular price by about 25% over the USA prices, so they can run them 25% off and still get full markup.  I don't think people are buying at these inflated regular prices.  The big Troop Transport vehicle was also 25% off, making it just about what it really should have been all along.
When I checked the Ewok packs the other day there were only 4 of them compared to 8 of the Pilots packs, so perhaps they are packed 1 to 2 in a box of 12?

I think they are evenly packed, my store had 4 of each. The Ewoks pack is more in demand. And they might be boxes of 4, or possibly 8 (makes sense if my store had 4 of each and yours had probably 8 of each).

I stopped off at a couple of Wal-marts last night.  Both had pegs filled with the last wave. 

Other than Lumat, Emperor's Royal Guard, and the Republic Trooper, there seemed to be plenty to go around.  (One of the stores had about 4-5 Ahsokas, but no Lumats, guards or troopers.)

For anyone still looking for last wave figures in the GTA area, now might be a good time to head out to a Wal-mart.

I'll also add (since I don't think I've seen it mentioned) in Wal-mart's seasonal candy section there are Star Wars candy dispensers.  They have Darth Vader, R2-D2, and a EII clone trooper.  They're $3 and don't look too bad.

Post by: General Brashin on December 22, 2012, 10:09:19 PM
$22.92 is the price for these new ships at Walmart.

I believe that Canadian Jedi has reported the correct price point for these vehicles as I saw a shelf sticker that was labeled SW CLII STAR FIGHTER - 22.92 as this fits what Hasbro was planning with these vehicles.

I think the 34.92 price reported at AFN or the 34.95 at JTA are not the correct price points but are due to WMs being lazy and deciding to charge the previous Class II vehicle price. Especially if they were like the WM where I first saw these vehicles.  When i visited the store again they had decided to print up new 34.92 UPC stickers with an older 34.92 Class II UPC and stuck them over the original upcs.

Bizarrely enough I saw this 2013 vehicle assortment being "clearanced" at another WM for $20.

The hasbro section for Star Wars was completely barren of small ticket 3 3/4" items.  There were 7 carded figures, total, 3 super battle droids and 4 regular battle droids all on legends cards.  There was 1 rebel pilots pack and other than that there were only Vintage BMF's and MTT's.  I did a lap around the store to see if the section was moved but that was it.

As reported at AFN - http://www.actionfigurenews.ca/boards/showthread.php?t=12567 (http://www.actionfigurenews.ca/boards/showthread.php?t=12567) Cdn package 2013 Class I vehicles have arrived at Walmart priced at 22.92. Like jacobot I found only MTT Droid Fighters and 501st Legion AT-RTs at a number of Walmarts. It seems that HasCan is initially shipping cases with 2 each of the MTT Fighters and AT-RTs although the 501st Legion Attack Dropship and Jedi Attack Fighter are pictured on the bottom of the MTT Fighter and AT-RT boxes.

I am interested in what everybody else is seeing or if anyone has seen the Dropship or Jedi Fighter.

Also saw numerous green packaged 2013 Class I, II and III Fighter Pod Packs priced at 6.92, 12.92 and 18.92 respectively.

I was at my 'local' TRU today and saw the MTT'S on clearance for $119.99, also there were multiples of the 5 Ewok Battlepack.  There seemed to be an equal number of ewok packs to pilot packs so they must have been stocked not long before I was there.  Unfortunately they are still priced at $54.99.

His bandana in Return of the Jedi is definitely red, although having darker tones due to the dirt and probably sweet. The red bandana version is thus more "movie-accurate" in my opinion. At least way more than the brown bandana version.

Weird sighting today. Saw a TVC Clone Pilot "Odd Ball" hanging on the pegs at my local TRU. I didn't realize how strange it was until later on, so didn't think to check if it was US or Cdn card. None of the rest of the Tarkin wave there, and I'd never seen anything there like that before either. I'm wondering if it was some kind of return. I didn't think this wave made it out here - but didn't someone say they saw a Starkiller before?

Also on the pegs were a couple Barriss, both red and brown bandana Kithaba, Bom Vimdins, Logray, and 4x Rebel Fleet Troopers that have been sitting there for weeks now. Didn't need any of them myself.

Just saw all the Back Series figures, both 3 3/4 and 6 inch at my local Wal-Mart. I didn't buy anything, but the 6 inch figures look really good. I'm not interested in any of the 3 3/4 figures in this wave, but I took one over to the price checker since the rack didn't have a price tag, and the message on the scanner said to see a sales associate. So I'm guessing these were put out before they were supposed to be. No sign of Saga Legends or Mission Series. I definitely would have bought some of them! I'll post more details in my local provincial forum.

Saw Saga Legends and the Mission Series for the first time in person at a Wal-Mart in Atlantic Canada today (not in the same province as my Black Series sighting a few days ago). Looks like all the figures were there except for Yoda. I picked up Anakin today and will hopefully get some of the others later.

Full sets of Black wave @ 130th WM here in #yyc.

The non-articulated are abysmal. There are 2 different single pack colors and then 2-packs.

Grabbed Sergeant and Pilot for articulated single packs to see how those are.

Picked up Sandtrooper, Luke and Darth Maul 6" to see how they are.

Found Black 3 3/4 at Wal Mart. Not where they're supposed to be - clearance aisle alongside legends (I should have let the legends row "fall" onto the floor and accidentally run them over repeatedly with a shopping cart) Hey I understand many of you view the economy lines as "old school" offshoots and appreciate them for what they are. Peace to you nuts. You've got more money than sense :)
Only 1 case of each. I left only both Biker Scout repaints, 1 Biggs and 1 Anakin.

I finally found all the new lines at a Walmart nearby.  And I have to say I don't think I've ever been so disappointed or bored with Hasbro's Star Wars offerings!!!

The packaging is God-awful, looks so cheap and half baked. The figure selection is pretty lackluster and then there is the whole articulation issues.

We really got spoiled with TVC!!!  I'LL be saving a ton of money this year and until things improve!!!

I've been going through a TON of figures lately and I must say I'm not stuck on articulation. If they had decided the main line was going to be limited articulation, but of very high quality like the POTJ line was (for its time) I would be totally fine with that.

The fact they're even offering these cheaper versions (and by cheaper I mean not only "less expensive" but also CHEAP LOOKING) screams out "THIS IS WHERE WE'RE HEADED" to me. Only time will tell.

But when it comes to articulation, we have gone beyond the potj days. And unless you're a carded collector I think some flexibility in how you can pose and display figures will now be important. I do like some of these 5 poa figures but not enough to start what really amounts to collecting a different line and therefore a new sub collection, like the 6 inch line. But I think I get Hasbro's game here and it may work for them in the long run but it doesn't feel like it will work for me though 3.75 Black series will be something I continue to selectively buy from.

At $6.99 these 5 poa figures make sense for young and beginner collectors...more bang for your buck...especially if you leave them carded.

This.  I didn't mind the PotJ figures back in the day, but 5POA left me very cold. I rarely agreed with Hasbro's choices on how a figure should be posed for example, and this was even before the horrible Saga-AotC era where Hasbro really went nuts in their pre-posed figures.  Articulation lets me pose my figures the way I want them to be posed. It's never been Hasbro's job to tell me how my figures should stand around (unless it's a neutral standing pose). 

I was just fooling around with an old Count Dooku figure last night (the one where he has the holographic Death Star in his hand) and damn if his feet/legs weren't stuck in this stubborn pose that wouldn't allow for Dooku to stand on his own without easily tipping over at the slightest breeze. Posing his legs differently would fix this problem.  While 5POA and 6" are fine as tangential purchases, only SA 3.75" would keep me in the collecting game and even in regards to that, only so long as distribution isn't the nightmare that it was in 2012.

Post by: jjreason on August 12, 2013, 03:43:25 PM
I agree with the list of pros regarding articulation, and I must say when I first laid hands on a gi joe figure back in 1983 or 1984, they left the traditional sw figures in the dust forever. That being said, I don't "do" much with my figures other than open them & throw them in rubbermaid bins for storage - so as long as the figure is decorated with modern fine details & looks good - I'm happy.

Targets have been resetting their toy aisles and new product is starting to show up. I saw Mission series and Black 3.75 at a Target - 11.99 which is more than Walmart and TRU. There were shelf tags for other products: Saga Legends - 6.99 and 6" Black - 24.99.

In the don't care too much department: the price of Class II vehicles has been raised to 27.99 but they do have the lowest price for the 12" Anakin to Vader - 29.99.

I imagine some of these prices will get adjusted.

Anyone else notice that? The clone is nice, the stormie is basic, Luminari can't wear her hat if she lifts her arm above her elbow, but Pablo-Jil rocks.

Wow, I could not say it better. You've just exactly summed up my thoughts on this wave 2  :o ;D

From this wave, I've bought zero Mara, one Pablo, one Luminari and 4 Coruscant clones to date. One more for me and those clones will serve as a special 5-unit. As a side note, I will be more than happy to welcome 5 updated 41st Elite Corps (http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/Hasbro_The_Black_Series_12_41st_Elite_Corps_Clone_Trooper_Update_155072.asp) as soon as they'll be available

Mara Jade was the figure I've been most looking forward to with this wave and wow, what a disappointment. She's got rocker 80's hair and a rather unhappy look on her face (as if Hasbro screwed up and she knew it). Bought her anyway. Will stick a GI Joe RoC Scarlett head on her (since Scarlett is also a redhead) as an alternate head.

Bought Pablo and Luminara but they are more purchases for the sake of competing my diorama, not exactly huge wants of mine.  Can't believe anyone would want those Stormtroopers or Coruscant clones since they actually are the fugly ones to me in this wave.  I really hope that Plagueis isn't going to be mucked up the way Mara was.

My interest in even seeing this wave at retail has pretty much left the building - I was going to buy a Stormtrooper or two just to ring up a couple of sales for Hasbro, but if they're that bad it won't be happening. Going to see if I can find a write up or some pics - which Stormy are they using as the basis for this thing???

EDITED: For the love of God, can someone please advise whether or not they let this thing hit retail with the Sandtrooper backpack slot I saw in an online review? Jesus, Hasbro.  :speechless-smiley-004: :speechless-smiley-004: :speechless-smiley-004:

I honestly haven't been this disinterested in Hasbro Star Wars stuff since, well, before I started to collect again around the time of ROTS. I honestly almost don't care anymore. I mean, the handful of OT figures that are coming have me interested but not excited. I too was kind of looking forward to the stormtrooper at least but…I almost feel like I'm not collecting anymore. Sigh...

Maybe its the eternal optimist in me, but I'm one of the few who is actually very happy with the new TBS 3.75'' figures I've gotten lately. Ok so the selection is not what I would've preferred but I think everyone knows it was a selection based on a flopped 3D movie plan.  But the 8 figures from wave one, in my opinion, are good quality figures and good upgrades to the older ones I may have had in previous collections.  I recently got wave 2 and was quite happy with it too.  Ok, the stormtrooper is a sandtrooper rehash, but I already knew that months ago when they showed the pictures of it...and yea, Mara is pretty ugly but the rest of her body is very well done. A quick Black widow head swap and its already a lot better.  Pablo Jill is a great looking figure in my Geonosis display, as is Luminara in any Jedi temple display. And the clone well...a clone is a clone is a clone to me.

I also recently got the Slave 1 ship and thought it was really quite awesome...although I must say I'm one of the fortunate people that had no missing pieces or any of the other TVC horror stories with this item. But honestly, I have nothing bad to say about it and thinks it looks great. To me, its the definitive version of this ship. And lastly, the ewok catapult was very recently added, and that too is pretty sweet. So altogether, I'm quite happy with what we've been given.

I am looking forward to Vizam, Neyo and Plagueis quite a bit too, and the scanning packs. And now with rumors of Ree Yees and Doallyn on the way, things look even better.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: JediPatrick on November 05, 2013, 10:11:29 AM
I agree with most if not all of Darth Mink's message. I mean, for me, these new figures are quite nice.

I had nothing to complain about TBS Wave 1 except for that rehash Biker Scout, but maybe it's because I've seen too much of him since I own 3 Speeder Bike where the same figure was packed in. For me, the Clones are Clones and as long as they're Phase I clones, I like them (dunno why, but I prefer AOTC era Clones rather than ROTS era Clones). Even that Padawan Anakin was partly resculpted, so for me it was a neat wave of figures.

Recently got wave 2 also from my friend José and must say I'm quite happy. Okay, Mara Jade is a letdown, but that's just because of her too thick hairdo. I'm getting two of this character in order to perform a nice head swap with a Black Window figure and I'll be okay with it. Luminara's hat has a tendency to fall down, but a quick drop of hot glue should resolve the problem I guess. And Pablo Jill is a really really nicely done figure!

Also got the Ewok Catapult. Very nice set! I really really like Ewoks. They're my new Tauntauns. Gimme me more and more Ewoks and I'll be quite pleased. Those who know me understand that I really like furry creatures. When are we getting that Wampa resculpt? ;-)

Also got my set of Imperial Scanning Crew from José this weekend while attending that Montreal Toy Con. Still need to find some time to open them, but it's cool to finally get our hands on the 2nd scanning Crew figure! :)

I think some collectors are feeling letdown because stock isn't moving as smoothly as we used to get in the past few years. The TVC line was flooding the shelves with new stuff pretty much each 1-2 months, and I think most of us feel that TBS esthetics and content isn't on par with what we got used to in the past few years. But for me, it was a much needed break: I bought at least two of each TVC figures (one to open, one to keep carded)and now I'm simply glad to buy just one of each TBS figure. It surely shows in my pocket...

Anyway, the slow year was kind of predictable: with a new movie coming in 2015, and a new animated show in 2014, I'm sure Hasbro has been quite busy feeding their manufacturing shops with stuff for the new shows and movies. It's quite obvious to me that E7 will see plenty of goodies from all the major toy licencees. Probably more than what we've seen for E1. As long as we don't get overloaded with Jar Jar, I'm sure we'll all be happy when we see the new heros and villains faces in the toy stores...

Anyway, just adding a final note that I've seen some remnants of TBS Wave 2 pretty much all around the Montreal area (Walmart, Target, etc.) Mara Jade is the fast seller and Luminara seems to be the one sticking to the pegs. Strange. Because I thought most people find Luke's wife quite ugly... ;)
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: sinkie on November 05, 2013, 12:41:41 PM
I definitely think that part of the let down is the switch from TVC to the Black Series. I realize how much that added to the pleasure of collecting for me and now, it feels like a step back, resculpted figures we mostly already have had. Sure there always improvements but sometimes that isn't enough. I am looking forward to the new, never produced OT stuff but Biggs, Biker scout and Ceremony Luke were all kind of "meh". It has definitely made me realize that the TVC packaging kept the line feeling fresh, like we were getting more bang for our buck and getting figures on vintage cards we wished we'd had as kids (if you were a kid then I mean). Now, it is starting to feel like we're just going over old ground.

I saw the 6" wave 2 on the shelves today and have to admit it is the closest I've come to buying one. Both Fett and Han had me this close to taking them to the cashier. But I realized I would be starting down a path I couldn't really afford to go down right now. But Han especially was much nicer in hand than I'd been lead to believe.

OK, so I'm just taking this thread even further down the "off topic" trail... I've been having the same debates with myself about the 6" figures. Some look neat to me, others not so much, but I am afraid of my tendency to buy everything once I start into a line. One thing you could do though, and I've been thinking of it myself, would be to just buy a couple of your favourite, iconic characters to display almost as "mini-statuettes" or something - the poor man's version of GG or Sideshow items. I find that more and more of my 3.75" figures sit in storage, likely never to be displayed. It'd be nice to have a few of these 6" figures to set up in a couple spots as display pieces. Maybe a Han & Greedo combo, or a Vader & Bespin Luke duel, something like that.

Post by: sinkie on November 05, 2013, 01:44:42 PM

Strangely, I'm stuck with the same feeling. I've encountered a Wave 2 6" Boba Fett figure this weekend from José and honestly felt it was a very nice figure, very well done all around. I had it in my hands and looked at it for a while, thinking I could maybe reason myself just buying a few of them. But I put it back on the table, knowing myself for the completist I am... so no 6" for me. At least not now.

It'd be nice to have a few of these 6" figures to set up in a couple spots as display pieces. Maybe a Han & Greedo combo, or a Vader & Bespin Luke duel, something like that.

I agree. I will definitely look carefully at that 6" Luke Bespin in hopes that an ESB Vader will be coming closely behind. To be honest, they'd be only a few figures I'd be willing to pick: ESB Luke, ESB Vader, ESB Yoda, Han Bespin, Leia Hoth. And a nice combo Luke Hoth + his Tauntaun! :-)

So you see, I'm confusing myself. Said I would not start a new 6" collection, but then my arms would be quite open if they did produce what I like. Oh well. Damn Hasbro right? They know how to get the money out of our wallets...  :-\

Post by: Shadow_Imperium on November 05, 2013, 08:23:36 PM
I'm with everyone else on this.

 I had Boba and Leia in hand, and stood for a minute internally debating. On the one hand they are really well done, and would be fun to play around with/display on my desk. On the other hand...where would it all end? Two years ago I did a major downsizing and reorganizing of my collection, for sanity's and space sake, I'm worried about how far in I'd go with 6". If I got Greedo I'd have to get Han. If/when Old Obi-Wan is done I'd want an ANH specific Vader for him to duel. I was already picturing Boba with the other bounty hunters, so I'd have to get all of them. I didn't get them this time, but who knows about next, I love ROTJ focused figures....Heaven help me if that rumored Jabba becomes a reality

Sinkie, I couldn't have said it any better.  The TVC took me back 30 years ago, and awoke the feelings of excitement/anticipation of popping an awesome star wars figure out of the card.  So the packaging/sculpting/articulation made it an easy decision.  For me, ultimately, it is that "feeling" what I'm really buying, and none of the other lines have given me that yet (specially not the black series).  So for me it's been pretty easy to ignore all other lines thus far...

Thanks buzo! :)

And I saw another Han and Greedo in the wild tonight and came close (thanks to Wedge1021 encouraging me earlier!!!  :rollfloorlaffsmiley: ) to getting them but passed again. Like everyone keeps saying, if you're at all a completist or someone who justifies purchases by saying, "well of course if I have this character I need that character to go with him" Then you're doomed! The ONLY two characters I've been able to successfully apply that logic to with Sideshow for example is Old Ben and Vader. So I might be safe if those two come out. But I will most likely try to resist even that temptation because it could still lead me astray.

I still have't seen them in the wild. My cas is already secured at José's. I will probably grab a Boba if I see one in stores to keep one sealed. Besides 3 3/4 figures, I don't collect anything else (sideshow, marvel, etc) so I started collecting these. But I'm not sure I would have started these having more product to buy on a regular basis.

Walked into my local Walmart, to find that the shelves had been stocked with 6-inch figures. But I got there late, because only one lonely figure was left hanging on the pegs.

That figure was...

...Boba Fett!!!  :fett:

What are the odds??? Thank you to whoever left him behind for me! I'm so happy!

Maybe it was a return from another store. Who cares though, it's a nice find for you! Still looking for one myself. Hope they show up in greater numbers.

So far all I've seen was a slave Leia and her face looked like someone just shot her dog. She was so sad looking! I passed on her, and won't be getting the slave Leia. Horrible choice for a first Leia figure with all the exposed joints. Simply put it's just not a nice looking figure. Still searching for the rest, especially Boba!

In case anyone is still looking for some/all of the Black Series 3.75" Wave 2 figures - a few of my local Walmarts have bins at the entrance (toy side) with assorted "$8.47 Rollback" action figures. Each store I've seen them at has had a case of wave 2 thrown in, with none of them having been placed on the pegs in the toy aisle yet. So if you've been having fruitless WM toy runs, give a look in those bins.

Has anyone found any of the Black Series 3-3/4" Wave 2 sets recently?  I have been looking at all the usually spots in the Mississauga/Orangeville/Toronto/Whitby area and have only found tons of Wave 1.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: napseeker on December 09, 2013, 05:07:55 PM
It's possible that wave 2 was there, but just stripped of the 3 figures that people actually want from this wave (Pablo, Luminara, and Mara). Once those 3 figs are bought up, it would look like it was all just wave 1 remnants when it's actually also wave2 as well.

Wave 3 in Southeastern Ontario. Found remnants at local TRU, Plagueis was gone of course, so was Merumeru and Neyo. Grabbed Vizam, which I was most looking forward to anyway so I walked out very happy. :P

If anyone interested, wave able to pick up Wave 2 of Mission Pack series from my local TRU in Belleville, Ontario today. Was able to get all three R2, c3po, maul and obiwan, han and chewie, had quite a few on for 10.99. first time I have seen new stuff at my local tru in got to me few months.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!

Saw wave 2 Mission Series (Han/Chewbacca, C-3PO/R2-D2 and Kenobi/Maul).

At first I was excited, especially since I haven't seen any really new 3.75 SW in a while and there was only one of the droids pack so I felt fortunate to have snagged it! Anyway, after looking them over for a while, totally prepared to buy, I realized what sense of their quality was slowly coming over me: Garbage.

Seriously, they are such a step backwards and having them in-hand I can say they really are not all that well done. Han looks goofy, Chewie is skinny and his face is weird, R2 and Threepio look like dollar store knock-offs...I couldn't believe I was about to lay down $22 plus tax for them. If this is the future of SW figures, there is no need to rush out and buy these as this kind of crap is bound to be recycled forever now that the franchise is growing even more commercial.

No Vizam yet…though found a Aurora MU figure!

Looks like you guys in the East are starting to see a bit more action. Anyone here in the West see anything new pop up? I just checked a TRU in Vancouver and still no new mission series, no 6" Boba (but a lot of peg warming leias and greedos), no wave 2 black series 3.75". Its getting real depressing...

Hopefully it is all coming your way or coming back your way! I'm just waiting for signs of wave 3 in the 3.75 line. I keep finding restocks or remnants of both wave 2 and wave 2 in 6 inch format. If I'd been collecting them, I could have had a small army of Fetts by now! (not to rub it in!)

Didn't I read somewhere that Disney stores are getting Star Wars stuff now including the black series?

Saw wave 2 Mission Series (Han/Chewbacca, C-3PO/R2-D2 and Kenobi/Maul).

Just for curiosity, where did you see them exactly? I might want to get the CW Maul and Kenobi just because that's the only rendition of that Maul figure. And maybe 3PO and R2 for the heck of it...

I think it's fine to mention the vendor & province in the open ("Wal Mart in Ontario" for example), it's the specific store reports with times & everything attached that are going to provide the scalpers with the advantage.

Provincials not open for me yet, but I found mission series 2 at a Toys R Us in Vancouver. Picked up the Tantive 4 pack and was surprised that they didn't feel like McDonald's Toys despite the 5POA. They are decently painted as well.  :artoo:
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: JediPatrick on March 29, 2014, 11:04:58 AM
Okay, finally put my hands on the new wave 2 Mission Series 2-packs:

- Tantive 4: C-3PO & R2-D2
- Mandalore: CW Obi-Wan & Cyborg Darth Maul
- Death Star: Han Solo & Chewbacca

 I was surprized to found them at Walmart instead of TRU. In fact, most of the Walmart stores I've been to in the past weeks had received several cases of these.

Purchased the CW Obi-Wan and Darth Maul, merely because this is the only such rendition of Darth Maul.

Have also sinned and bought the 3PO & R2 pack. Merely for 3PO, because the sculpt is not so bad. But honestly, after thinking of it, might as well reimburse it: I can have much nicer 3PO out of eBay for much less. :-/

Still no sign of the Saga Legends wave 2 (with the Stormtrooper, the only one I want, really).

Still no sign of Black Series Wave 3 (with Merumeru and Vizam) since I last saw remnants of the wave at TRU late February. To think of it, I'm pretty sure that there are certainly a few TRU store employees that simply put these new figures aside when they receive them for their own purchase instead of putting them on the pegs. Sadly. :-(

Hi guys! Just to let you know that I've found the mighty jackpot today!

All TRU, Walmart and Target stores I've been to today in the Montreal area (that's 8 stores total) have received MASSIVE shipments of BRAND NEW Star Wars items!!!

- Black Series 3-3/4" Wave 3 with at least 5-6 cases (so 10-12 of each characters)!

- Black Series 6" Wave 3 with at least 10 cases (so plenty of Bespin Luke and Stormtrooper for everyone!)

On top of that, all the Walmart stores I've been to have also put back on the shelves many TVC figures (at least 60-70), with rare almost never released figures such as Starkiller, Shae Vizla, Aayla Secura, Hoth Echo Base trooper, etc. etc!!! I've seen at least six dozens of such rare figures sitting on the pegs!

It's like Xmas all over again, but this time with all the pegs and shelves full of new products!!

I've also seen an Hasbro rep in one of the TRU store and the lady told me they are aware of the distribution problems in Canada and that Hasbro's top management has decided it was time to PUSH the new material in all the stores by removing old peg warmers. They will also FORCE store managers to accept and bring in new items every 2 weeks to keep the newer product flowing in a more fuild manner!!

This is marvelous!!

 :D  :D

And the best thing: I've heard both TRU and Target are on the verge of starting a HUGE sale on SW products with 30% price reduction on all basic figures and 20% on everything else!!!

Way to go Hasbro!  :)`

Ewoks are the mightiest warriors of the Galaxy (who else was able to defeat an entire Empire garnison with spears, rocks and arrows?) So they will defend their Tauntaun friends with their own lives! No Tauntaun will ever be roasted on a spitroast as long as Ewoks live. :)

Yeah, TVC resurfacing would be quite a marvel, right? During these dark times (aka this Black Series nightmare), I'm pretty sure everyone would find it very cool to find TVC cardback on the pegs, even if it meant 2-4 years old stuff thrown back at us. Especially finding a Starkiller, Tarkin, Nikto Guard at retail! :-) :-)

Not funny. It's an ongoing tragedy…how dare you! 
 :D :D :D :D :D


 :) Yeah I know, the joke's on us really! Now that Hasbro and those stupid TRU, WM and Target stores who kept asking for cheap action figures with 5POA are stuck with them for 8 months, I guess they'll start complaining that the toy market is slowing down. If they really did a good assessment of the situation, they would realize that there's a limit on the number of Biggs Darklighter and Anakin Skywalker single customers are willing to purchase (usually, that's only one). And to have stuff moving off the pegs, usually you need to diversify the offer with new product flowing more fluidly on the pegs and shelves. Usually diversity attracts people...

Anyway, April's fool everyone! No no, Hasbro has not started listening to us, they're way too busy listening to the retail stores managers who don't give a damn about these things...

Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: Thirdfloor on April 02, 2014, 05:40:36 PM
You know things are out of whack when people are complaining about how little money they have spent over the last six months to a year.  If Hasbro was in-tune with their customer base you would think they would realize that by not having new product for such long periods of time is only going to give collectors the space and time to contemplate whether or not they even want to continue collecting.  When new product is constantly being pushed out and in your face it's harder to think about quiting because you know the next 'fix' is right around the corner.  It hasn't worked on me, yet..., but I've noticed quite a few people selling off entire collections, lack of interest could be a large part of those decisions. 

They have so many existing molds to figures that people are dying to add to their collections from previous lines, and those same people are paying upto 5x initial retail value and some way beyond that in the aftermarket.  If they did their homework and figured out what the customers wanted they could be pumping out wave after wave of figures that need zero dollars in tooling or development costs and making tones of profit.  Why they don't do that is well beyond my reasoning.  If I owed a company and knew there were items I could sell if I took the time to produce, I don't see what would stop me from doing that.  Hasbro knows these fansites exist, and there have already been lots of threads on the different sites about which figures from the past people would want to see again.  If a Hasbro rep took the time to go to as many of the major sites as possible and open a thread for people to vote, they could come up with the top 50 figures averaged between the sites and they'd have a years worth of waves of figures right there.  Oh well, I don't wear a suit to work, so what do I know?

A couple of weeks ago I picked up Merumeru and Vizam on the black cards for $12.99 and no Tax at Superstore.  Yesterday I was in a Walmart and they had all the black series on sale for $8.47 so I picked up the same two figures and saved myself some money.  Today when I returned the two figures to Superstore I noticed that they now had them on clearance at $7.77 and again it is a no tax day, so I bought them back again.  I'll return the ones from Walmart on another day.  And just to round out my lucky day, I stopped in next door at Toys'R'Us and found Darth Plagueis at $10.99!

I have been told by a very reliable source that there was a Wave 2 produced on Canadian cards.  I don't know where they went, how many were produced, or where at all they were available but I had an opportunity a few months ago to purchase this case assortment and unfortunately I passed on it thinking that they would be readily available at retail. :mad0218: 

Hopefully they do show up at Winners, or for whatever reason end up coming to regular retail shortly following the 3rd wave...?   :confused0024:

Well, that's the key. If a wave has been produced on Canadian packaging, and isn't showing up at the big three (TRU, Target, Walmart), they need to show up somewhere. And history says it's usually Winners/Marshalls.

I'm convinced at this point that the Wave 3 Black 6" is going to show up at one of the discount chains. We know they're out in Canadian packaging, they've shown up in small quantities at a couple small retailers (Sunrise, that online store), but we've heard that they're not going to show up at the big 3. They have to show up somewhere in decent quantities. Time will tell.

Of Series 1.

Not kidding. If you missed any of the series 1 figures and are in Saskatoon, the Stonebridge Crossing Walmart has full pegs.

Of Series 1.

I found a second 6" Stormtrooper yesterday, same Target that I found one in last week.  They must have put out another case.

I'm getting really jelly right now. I just checked my Target yesterday and there was nothing but Greedos and Leias. I always have a feeling deep inside me that none of those cases ever make it to the west coast, as if millions of figures suddenly cried out in terror and were silenced. I fear something terrible has happened to the delivery truck.

As mentioned in a couple of provincial reports and at echobase TBS 6" wave 3 is showing up at Disney stores.

Also at the Disney store saw the Boba Fett Slave I, Obi's blue Eta-3 JSF and Anakin's Delta-7B JSF Class II vehicles in Cdn packaging. This is the first time I recall seeing this case assortment although I don't pay much attention to the current class IIs. I didn't see a price for the vehicles.

Found at Walmart near Montreal earlier this week:

Wave 3 of Mission Series:
- Luke Bespin + Darth Vader
- Obi-Wan Kenobi + General Grievous

3 each. As always, very bad paint application, especially on the eyes. Yuck.

Seeing stores in Montreal area restocking the Vizam/Plagueuis wave. In fact I found a very minty Plageuis that I don't want but if anyone does, PM me, especially if you're in the Montreal area. Otherwise I'll return him next week. Saw the Command stuff too at a couple TRUs, have to admit I was tempted by the sandpeople/sandtrooper pack but got over it.

There were 3 Battle packs for 6.99 - Imperial Assault, Sandtrooper Strike and Galactic Empire; 3 Attack packs (2 vehicles, 10 figures) for 12.99 - Arena Assault, Jedi Duel and Endor Attack; and 2 boxed Invasion packs for 19.99 - Final Battle and Death Star Strike. All were in Cdn packaging.

Also saw Rebels branded small role-play masks - Vader, Ezra and Stormtrooper for 10.99.

Ok, the hunt is on.

Just found the "Jedi Reveal" 3-pack exclusive at Toys'r'Us in the Montreal area at lunch today. 19.99$. Very slim package, much thiner than what I anticipated. They had at least 25-30 of these.

Grabbed one. Very nice. But had to carefully choose the best out of the lot for paint job applications (the eyes sometimes look crooked).

So here you go! Happy hunting! :-)

I found most of the Rebels figures from the Saga Legends line today at Wal-Mart. No Inquisitor, Ezra or new Mission Series though. Only one each of the others. I had been looking forward to them, but passed for now because the paint job was too bad on the ones I was interested in. The repackaged Jedi Luke has way better looking eyes now, and was the most tempting for me to pick up so I could replace the big eyes version. Hopefully I can find a decent looking Chopper soon!

Hey FF... AREVthese the same as the action fleet Diecast that were hitting discount a few years ago...same meaning size .
Diecast is awesome as long as there aren't to many plastic pieces.

I think these are bigger.  The B-wing was about 6-7 inches as was the star destroyer.  Vader's tie was a bit bigger also.  Detailing is really nice.  Tie, snowspeeder, b-wing were $11 and the star destroyer was $23ish.

The Chewie's at my store were all the clean version, I think, there was no dirt on the tires.

WOW...these are definitely getting cheaper...maybe after XMAS they will be down to 5.00 bucks!! :artoo:

What I find funny is ...3 3/4 inch figures are more expensive with less plastic used ...bizarre! :speechless-smiley-004:

Secondly check out the REBELS 2 packs...many shown ..many unavailable !... :confused0024:

Lastly,hmmm...walmart is great for many of their pricing and if your lucky enough to be  around store level  many have made out like bandits ...but my point...wHy are many figures shown as online only not at store level????...hmmm...I bought all my big JAKKS at store level..

TRU in Montreal area had new Black Series 3.75 with nice bright fluorescent green price tags that read 14.99. The rumours are true…the price increase seems to be here already! Walmart still had them at their regular price however, so far.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: napseeker on January 16, 2015, 12:24:33 PM
So with a 25% off sale, that's $11.24... in Ontario we'd then pay 13% HST to get $12.70 per figure...

Thank you Hasbro for raising the wholesale cost by 30%... let's hope that at least Walmart has the ability to pressure Hasbro from doing the same to them.

And with the crappy loonie, no chance to save $$ by buying from the States (even with their price increase).

I'm not done, but I will honestly be so insanely picky about what I buy from now on that Hasbro will rue the day they did this... rue the day!!!!  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

But seriously, at this point they may as well stop churning out army builders because who is going to pay $13 per figure to army build anything from now on?  Except maybe the Tantive IV rebel (with holster) and INC in grey that is...

Hasbro's tagline should be the inverse of TARGET's: "Expect less, pay MORE!"

With the Canadian dollar at a 20% discount these days I am surprised that the price hasn't jumped even higher!  Where are the six inch figures going to end up?  Mind you we were already paying a 25% premium for them.
The Han and Tauntaun are pre-booking at $49.  That would put us at $60 at least here in Canada.  It wouldn't be a stretch to see them at $69.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: jjreason on January 17, 2015, 10:15:28 AM
Walmart.ca still has them at 10.54 or 10.84, the old price. Finally got my order placed for Ree Yees & the Skiff guard, $24 and change since they're still offering free shipping for now. They had a few other black series figures in stock too, from previous waves, in case anyone is still hoping to find Mara or whomever.

I saw that and it is scary. Makes me think I'll be even more selective with the 6" line. I may get priced right out of the 6" line altogether. And crazy they're carrying the speeder bike forward. At least they didn't carry Jabba forward!!

Just picked up the 6" Luke Jedi Knight at Superstore.  The only bummer is that it was $26.99 and that was the only one they had left.  I'm just happy that this wave is showing up here.  It is an international packaged one that had 3 languages on the box.  Here's hoping I can find Vader, Tie Pilot and Chewie.

Nice find!  :D  The fourth figure in the wave is the black pauldron Sandtrooper, not the Tie Pilot.  The Tie Pilot is in the wave (6) that follows with Yoda, Clone Captain and Obi repack and that wave doesn't look like it's coming to Canada so if you are wanting the Tie Pilot or the other two from that wave you should order them now online while they can still be found for regular retail prices.

Based on what you told me, I just ordered a case of new wave of figures which is 1 Chewie, 1 Tie Pilot, 1 Bossk, and 1 Han in Stormtrooper uniform.

Cool, very nice.  I know it takes the 'thrill of the retail hunt' out of collecting but sometimes the piece of mind you get from ordering online outweighs it.  Especially when Canada gets ripped off of having several of the waves and you don't even GET the chance to find them in the wild.  I really want the Bossk figure, but I'll have to order him by himself because I already have the Chewie and the Tie will be on its way to me soon with the Yoda wave and Stormie Han is going to be carried forward to the next wave which I will probably get a case for.

For those you like them, Walmart in the Montreal araea just received a bunch of new wave 5 Saga Legends 4" figures, including:

- Lando Skiff Guard
- Luke X-Wing Pilot
- Han Solo Bespin

Very crappy figures. But maybe some will like them, which I really don't understand why since you can still get their super articulated version for a few bucks on eBay...

So it means wave 4 (containing the Tie Pilot, AT-TP driver and Jedi Temple Guard) has been officially skipped in Canada (my other source also confirmed it does not appear on Hasbro Canada listings).

No sign yet of the next wave of Missions Series (the Wookiees, Sabine, Bossk & IG-88).

But the Sandman wave of the Marvel 4" line has arrived as well. For those who collect them, they're here.

Post by: darthpaul on February 23, 2015, 07:47:31 PM
I'd find it hard to accept that we would not get the AT-DP wave as they are new figs.  Otherwise I guess I'll be paying scalper fees at Celebration.

This is terrible news if in fact it is true.  But I agree it is a little early to be jumping the gun.  It need to load up on the at-dp and tie pilots!   :)
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: jmac on February 24, 2015, 11:17:59 AM
I hope it isn't true. This looked like a good wave. Could Hasbro have switched the order of the waves? I would be curious to know if any online stores in Canada have heard of this wave being skipped here.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: Darth Woo on February 24, 2015, 01:39:05 PM
Hasbro Canada just seems to skip the good stuff.  I actually wanted the Saga Legends Stormtrooper but that's the wave they skipped.  Now if this is true and they are skipping the wave with Tie Fighter pilot and At-Dp pilot, that would really really suck.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: darthpaul on February 26, 2015, 03:14:27 PM
I called Hasbro Canada customer service and gave them the assortment number for the Sabine wave. They said it will be coming to Canada. Just not sure of a solid date yet.

I can confirm you the Jedi Temple Guard wave (including the Tie Pilot and the AT-DP driver) will not come to Canada thru regular retail. That wave is not on Hasbro Canada's listing. It has been skipped.

The Sabine wave is scheduled to ship soon, it's definitely coming to Canada. They just skipped one Rebels/Legends wave.

For the Black Series, you'll certainly see the same thing, but there's a lot of repacking, so I think we should pretty much be covered.

And for those who ask why Hasbro skips waves once in a while, just picture yourself as the Toy Company decision makers facing a product that doesn't quite sell and retailers that returns their overstock by hundreds units per store. At some point, you too would be faced with the "hard" decision to sacrifice the last few waves to adjust to the local market and in hopes to meet your yearly Yearly Net Earnings target...

New find?

WM has the "Digital Release Commemorative Collection". $29.92 each. 5/6 sets at WM in DF Meadows in YYC. Easy pass for me since they look to be 5POA figures.

Also have 2 new giant figures of Greedo and Luke.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: Darth Woo on March 11, 2015, 11:58:43 AM
I believe it's cheaper or the same price to get those DVD pack figures individually.  Too bad they are 5 POA stuff.  If they were the Black Series type figures, it would be an awesome deal and set.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: napseeker on March 12, 2015, 03:51:46 PM
Don't remember if anyone reported this already but Walmart has got in the newer Jakks Pacific SW figures, namely the Han Solo and Jedi Luke... if there's another character in the wave, I didn't see them.  Anyway, much to JediPatrick's chagrin, I bought me a Han and Luke... :)

I also saw the newer 5POA wave with Bespin Han and X-Wing Luke. Wow, that Luke sculpt/paintjob makes him look like a little girl... the Bespin Han was decent though.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: Darth Chadus on March 12, 2015, 05:09:36 PM
I think Greedo might be the 3rd figure in that wave.

Post by: napseeker on March 15, 2015, 07:11:01 AM
I think Greedo might be the 3rd figure in that wave.

And so you are correct, I'm a bit surprised that Greedo sold out before Jedi Luke and ANH Han. Perhaps Jakks short-packed him, fearing a repeat of the 6" Hasbro debacle...

Edit: correct price, add case assortment
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: napseeker on March 15, 2015, 12:34:56 PM
Hmmm, so assuming you buy the transport during a 25% off sale, that's still about $26.25+tax = just under $30 for a rather small transport... I remember buying my vintage Kenner TT for $20 (the electronics didn't work) at Snail a few years back.

Was at the local Walmart whose Star Wars section has not seen any new stock since the Black and Blue series came out. I thought, ahhh what the hell. And there they were. Bespin Han, X-wing Luke, Guard Lando and an Inquisitor. Was not sold on the Luke or the Lando, but the Han was actually freakin' sweet. Yes, I'm not impressed with the new 5POA (POS) but this sculpt really clicked with me. Also bought the Inquisitor since he hadn't been around.

Today I saw the Endor figs on Hasbrotoyshop.com and while the Leia and Luke look.... meh, the Han looks completely Goofy. It looks like old Harrison is wearing a freakin' diaper because of the sculpted jacket.

Finally figured out the Grandview Hwy Superstore schedule.  They've been getting the 6" BS figures at 1 case per shipment.  I noticed they have remnants every Tuesday and Thursday when I go after work to do grocery shopping.

On Tuesday, couldn't make it in the morning but found Chewie and Luke that evening so I picked up Chewie (had Luke from when they first started showing up).  Today, I was able to make it before work and sure enough, 1 full case on the pegs so I finally got Vader.

So, if you are in the Vancouver area, check out Grandview Superstore on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.  Don't know if it'll change, but it's been like this for the last 3 weeks that I can tell.

Thanks for the heads up. My collection also thanks you, but my wallet isn't too happy. I went late last night and picked up the remaining three figures which ended up being $90 after tax.

So is this the new Canadian price or just limited to RCSS? I haven't bought a BS6 figure from a brick and mortar retailer since they were $19.99 at Walmart (Slave Leia is still on the pegs for $14.99). Sadly, it's probably still cheaper than buying online.

Superstore so far has been the only mass retailer to get new 6" BS stuff so that may be just the new pricing.

TRU I think is $24.99 for the older stuff.  If you can find it, Slave Leia is actually only $10 I believe at Walmart.

Yea, i broke down and picked up 6' Black Series ROTJ Luke from RCSS on Don Mills on Sunday, they had Sandtrooper,Vader,Chewie and another Luke left after i picked mine up.

I also picked up Mission Series ANH Luke(stormtrooper) and Leia plus Hoth Luke and Han two pack and i am very impressed with these latest waves of 5poa style figures with better sculpting, basically these are the updated figures we should've got later on down the road after POTF from Kenner instead of those roided out figures.

Yep, they're quite similar to the "new likeness" versions from around 97 or 98 when they thinned out the heroes & made them more movie realistic. I do like these ones better than those, but I just can't spend money on them. Too many of similar quality in rubbermaid bins downstairs.  :speechless-smiley-004:

You may already be aware of this but I was at a Disney store yesterday and noticed that they had a selection of die-cast ships that were two to three times larger than the hot wheels releases.  There were no price tags and I didn't end up asking a cashier so I'm not sure how much they go for but they did look pretty cool.  There was a falcon that was about six or seven inches in length and they had a star destroyer that was the same size.  There were other ships in the assortment as well.  I also saw the hot wheel versions at the TRU in Barrie the same day.

Went to the Whitby TRU today and picked up the REBEL Imperial Transport (3) 2 packs, Hera/Stormtrooper, Stormtrooper/Tie Fighter and a very funny looking couple Leia/Luke as Stormtrooper - Luke is like twice the size of Leia !.  I also picked up 5 new Mattel die cast ships - Y-wing, Ghost, Millennium Falcon, Snowspeeder and Slave 1.   I am just amazed that I spent some money on Star Wars toys - that has not happened for a long time !

TRU has some of Hot Wheels starship vehicles: Ghost, Millennium Falcon, Snowspeeder and Slave I - 5.99. ...   

Looks like the actual regular TRU price is 6.99. Oakville TRU temporarily had the price at 5.99 but it's up to 6.99 today and that's the price I saw at another TRU. This is a buck more than posted peg price at Walmart.

I also went to the Disney store today to take a look at the Die cast ships.  The large Destroyer was $22.95 whereas the smaller ships (Slave I, Y-wing, etc) were $10.95.  I didn't see the Millennium Falcon.  Perhaps it had sold out already?

A large quantity of diecast vehicles were on sale during  Christmas for half the price. I got the Falcon for under $10 back then, a very nice piece actually comparing to the tiny Hot Wheels one.

I found one set of 6" TBS with all four Luke/Sandtrooper/Vader/Chewie on sale for $17.77 at TRU High Tech! Great prices! :rockon:

I've just found some new 3 3/4 BS in a Archambault store in Qc. Due to Hasbro's lack of offer lately I've really lost track of which figures is supposed to come in which wave, but I've found out that they're from wave 8. What was left when I was there was :

- Threepio
- Clone "Doom"
- Commander Thorn
- Jawas 
- Leia Boushh
- Chewie
- Dagobah Vader-Luke

Found 2 cases of the Wave 2 Hot Wheels Starships at a Walmart. There are 7 different starships with 4 new vehicles: Red 3 X-Wing (closed S-foils), Red 5 (open S-foils), Vulture Droid and Tie Fighter. The vehicles were not in the system and I couldn't get a price, so I don't know if the 5.99 price seen earlier on tags which have now been removed still applies.

Case assortment appears to be:

3x Tie Fighter
3x Red 5
2x Millennium Falcon
1x Red 3
1x Vulture Droid
1x Ghost
1x Slave I.

Remnants of the 2 packs found at a TRU...picked up Ahsoka/Vader and was tempted (though not duped :) ) into the red-armed Threepio pack! No sign of the bb-8/scavenger pack nor Chopper but there was Anakin/Yoda, Han/Leia and Kenobi/Cody.

From what I could tell there's 2 of the A/V pack but only 1 of the scavengers pack in the case (unless someone came before me and had already bought one of the scav sets).

I checked a second TRU this morning but saw no two-packs at all.

If anything that's a good sign, means that they've not yet put them out. 

@GenBrashin: glad Hasbro realized that the Vader/Ahoska set was going to be the more popular of the entire batch and doubled up on them.  That's a rare thing for Hasbro to actually get what's going to be the big seller... although if they'd put Chopper with a Scav + BB8, rather than another release of Zeb (who is massively pegwarming at the TRUs that I've been to) it likely would've sold out like crazy too.

Sent someone to Disney Store for an Elite Maul pickup (today is release day) and they got kiboshed by the draw non-sense everyone thought was going to happen. Lineup at store opening to get a raffle ticket and then return at lunch? Disney must be on something. They need to either order enough stuff or offer free shipping to Canada.

Good news is they did find me a Rey and Kylo so those did get restocked since yesterday, but Phasma sold out. They were told to check back every two weeks.

Edit: False news on Elite restock... they were conned into buying die cast... ships. Instead of figures when they showed them the Elite pamphlet.

Howdy folks,

I found the most recent waves of Force Awakens 3.75 inch figures at my local GTA Toys R Us, as well as the Battle Action Milenium Falcon.

I took advantage of the 20% off and was therefore able to purchase:

Ezra
Kanan
Inquisitor
Goss Toowers
PZ-4C0
Guavian Enforcer
General Hux
Sarcco Plank
Asty
First Order Snowtrooper
Kylo Ren variant
First Order Stormtrooper

The individual working the aisle said that they'd put three cases out this morning.  There was one Black Series 6 inch wave out - two Kylo Ren figures were still there but I didn't pick any up as I already have that wave.

Saw Class II vehicles - 1st Order Snowspeeder and Desert Landspeeder at a Walmart for the first time. They scanned at 47.92 which I hope is a pricing error as that's $11 more than TRU.

Poe's X-Wing scanned in at $62.92 at Walmart which is $3 more than TRU.

... which is about 25$ more than what it's really worth. LOL  :speechless-smiley-004:

Couldn't agree more.  I honestly want to get all the vehicles if the prices were better.

walmart.ca http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/star-wars-the-force-awakens-375-inch-vehicle-first-order-special-forces-tie-fighter/6000194402780 (http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/star-wars-the-force-awakens-375-inch-vehicle-first-order-special-forces-tie-fighter/6000194402780) has a listing for the First Order Tie Fighter for 44.92 which is $5 less than TRU (on sale at amazon.ca for 40.97). The Tie Fighter is classed as a Class II Deluxe vehicle which indicates the 47.92 for regular Class II vehicles is out of whack.

Another price that seems off at Walmart is the one for Micro Machines heads - 34.92 which is $10 more than sears.ca and $7 more than TRU.

I can confirm that Wave 2 6" hit Canada as I just bought the whole wave this morning at ***** TRU. Sorry only one set and I bought it, sure they should show up anywhere else.

EDITED - Removed the specific location of the TRU so that lurkers don't jump on this & grab them all up before the collectors get a chance. - jj

Picked up a 6" Snowtrooper Officer just now at TRU.  Sucks that because it's a TRU exclusive, they decided that they needed to add their 50% exchange rate to the product vs the US TRU price.  It's $29.99.  They had two and I bought one.  I have another on the way from the US, so if I ever find the damn FO Stormtrooper, I can make a FO Stormtrooper officer without buying that 4 pack.

It's a weird sales time because the vast majority folks have NO idea how they feel about these characters.... they either just look desirable or they don't. I would imagine sales of Poe figures will ramp up once the movie drops, assuming he's the new "scoundrel" a la Han Solo.

Picked the Guavian Enforcer, very nice detailed figure. Passed on the others... the blue droid looks a little too cartoony and that Goss Toowers guy doesn't appeal to me much. I hope we're getting a SA General Hux fig in the upcoming months.

3x Poe's Black X-Wing
1x Obi-wan's blue Eta-2 Jedi Interceptor
1x Snowspeeder
2x Millennium Falcon
3x 1st Order Special Forces Tie Fighter.

They were priced a lot higher than other retailers - 8.99.

Saw a Wave 2 12" 1st Order Tie Fighter Pilot at a TRU. It's the only new figure in the Wave 2 case which includes repacks of all of Wave 1.

Found two Mission Series cases at a Canadian Tire priced at 14.99. The BB-8's had pegholes in the bases - a variation reported by Adam Pawlus.

There were also 2 Galactic Heroes figures/vehicle/beast sets: Jabba's Bounty and Landspeeder Adventure Pack - 54.99.

I don't know if it's indicative of the oversaturation of the product in stores, but the Hux wave and the Sarcco Plank wave have been sitting around at my local TRU.

They also got in those giant Vaders and First Order Stormtroopers - the four feet tall ones.

I also found the Black Series 3.75 inch first wave at Walmart.  It seemed like there were six of every figure on the pegs.  I did my part and bought three in the hopes that that will one day ensure the release of the next few waves.

There hasnt been to much if the Hux wave in the GTA yet.  I know theyve been trickling out case by case so far but I saw 4 cases of the jungle/space wave (hux/guavian/kylo/pz-4co/goss/inquisitor) at a TRU this week.  So looks like there coming out in full supply now.

After checking out at least 6 or 7 TRU stores over the last week and not finding anything new in 6" figures, I finally caved and bought 3 at a nearby Showcase store:  Phasma, Guavian, and Dameron.  It hurts to lay out $30 each, but the store only had one of each - so I bought them.
I never came across any of the 3 3/4 inch General Hux wave so maybe they are finally starting to hit TRU now.  I found mine at a Walmart out in Brantford last week.

Thanks for heads up.  It is available on line and I believe at just about every TRU store according to the system search I did via their on line check store.   I went to my store armed with that information and the sku # - they did not have any out but the store associate went in the back and found one for me.  It was great to get it today because I still had one of the buy $40 get $10 off coupons left to use.  Thanks again.

This wave made it to Archambault stores in Quebec 2 months ago in scarce numbers. I suspect they'll hit the pegs of secondary retail stores market (Winners, Homesense, etc.) in the next few months. It's not surprising they have not shown up in Walmart or TRU stores due to the unleash of TFA merchandise early September, most probably these retailers have concentrated their efforts on the new material rather than ordering the old series. It's a shame.  :-\

Quite ridiculous indeed. The 7$ difference is totally unjustified. It's exactly the same mold, same box size, same features, except the haul is white with blue stripes. Oh wait! Maybe we pay more because it comes with an exclusive Poe figure with a non-removable molded helmet? Who-hoo!! That's quite an improvement! :shakehead:

On the other hand, successfully bought the Poe Dameron's Black version this weekend. Didn't want it at first, but then figured it's almost certain we will never see this thing in a larger format, I really doubt Hasbro will go back and redo the ship in the near future. Anyway, bought it and somehow managed to get it at 25% off (15$ off) rather than 10$. Dunno how I did this. Think there was something wrong in the computers, but didn't try to argue...  :)

Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: napseeker on November 10, 2015, 04:41:08 PM
I'm not interested in buying any of the X-Wings... not after seeing how small they are.  Amazes me that collectors are really shelling out this kind of money for what would otherwise be a $35 toy.

My concern about the Walmart SA figures is that Hasbro will choose a poor character ratio for each wave (as they tend to do) where the new SA TFA figures are evenly packed with repacks of some OT ones (which most collectors will already have) then whammo, we get pegwarming OT figures holding up future wave shipments. 
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: sinkie on November 10, 2015, 05:05:40 PM
I hope you're wrong…except I for one want mostly the OT figures (new sculpts) and may pick up the TFA if I'm feeling rich.

Also I would like to revise my previous statement. I did not realize these were shrunk down x-wings. I would only pay $35 as well and probably never would unless on sale.

Post by: Darth Woo on November 10, 2015, 07:40:05 PM
It's longer than the vintage one.  I think also wider.  The issue is the cockpit is narrower, hence making it hard to fit the figure in.

Walmart has the white and blue XWing, but it's $69.92 vs the $62.92 price of the regular black one.

Are the cannons bent?  :r2d2:
I'll bet you can still price match it with TRU's sale this week at $49.99.

Thank you for the suggestion.  I went to Walmart tonight and yes they did price match.    I still think $49.99 is expensive for this item, I think I got the other one for $35 from TRU.  But we do not have much of a choice if it is Walmart exclusive.  You either wait for a sale from Walmart and hope that the Christmas frenzy Star Wars movie release does not clear them all out or you wait for  them to go on clearance at which time the boxes will have a lot of shelf wear on them.

That price seems crazy, but its not if people still buy it.  At what point do the collectors say no.  Reminds me of the TRU Rancor set, 160, I dont see that moving at all.

The Disney store in Mississauga today had a new shipment of Elite Series Die Cast Kylo Ren and First Order Stormtroopers.  Unfortunately not the ones that I was looking for.

I hope you're wrong…except I for one want mostly the OT figures (new sculpts) and may pick up the TFA if I'm feeling rich.

Problem is, other than Ceremony Leia, Hasbro basically said they aren't doing any new OT sculpts for the SA line, it's TFA that's getting the new tooling... which I assume means any OT in there otherwise is going to be repacks...

Some deals at Costcos

Lego FO Tie Fighter $70, $90 at TRU
Lego 3 pack of microfighters $30, $13 each at TRU
Lego oversized minifigure  Yoda clock $15, $32 at TRU
Nerf FO Stormtrooper deluxe blaster $35, $40 on sale at TRU, regular $50
AirHogs remote control x-wing $70, 80 at TRU
Motorized Deluxe R2-D2 $80, haven't actually seen this anywhere else

I picked up the Nerf blaster and Lego Tie fighter as I don't think this will be on sale for some time.  The lego stuff is pretty hard to get a deal on.
Would have picked up the yoda clock, but TRU is giving away a Vader or Stormie with $100 lego purchase for next 2 weeks.

Hi guys,

I picked up some of the Walmart exclusive 3.75' wave 2 figures today, Kylo Ren and the FO Stormtrooper.  I didn't see a Leia.

If anyone does find a Leia and is in the GTA and wants to trade for a Kylo or FO Stormtrooper, let me know!

Post by: jjreason on November 14, 2015, 01:57:53 PM
These are fully articulated, higher quality versions OMB. The first wave was all repacks/bare repaints but this 2nd wave is 3 all-new figures. ONLY available at Walmart stores.

Found nearly a full case of Wave 2 at another Walmart and the peg tag had a 11.92 price listed but the Leias still scanned at 14.86. Because of this I was able to get $10 off a Leia. It appears that 11.92 is supposed to be the price for the Walmart BS figures for now.

Only Leia and Luke seem to be scanning at the old 14.86 price so depending on what your Walmart has posted as the shelf price you may be able to get $10 off Leia and Luke till the price gets corrected.

Based on what I saw and on a report to Yakface,  a possible case assortment is 4 Kylo, 3 FO Stormtroopers, 2 Leia and 1 each of Luke, Vader and Chewie. It is also possible that it is 3 each of the Wave 2 figures and 1 each of the Wave 1 figures. Date code stamp is 52571.

I think the case breakdown is as follows:

- 5 x Kylo Ren
- 4 x First Order Stormtrooper
- 3 x Princess Leia

I know this because I found a nearly intact case yesterday. Half the figures were still in the box while the rest were put on the pegs but the old store clerk. When I passed by, the only missing figures were 1 Kylo Ren and 1 Stormtrooper, probably took by another customer just before I got there. So there was still 4 Kylo Ren, 3 Stormtroopers, 3 Leia.

As for the price, I confirm that Leia goes for 14.86$ and that price matched the tag on the pegs. So I honestly believed they screwed up on the other figures (Kylo and Stormtrooper) and didn't want to ask a clerk or the cashier to end up paying these figures at the normal higher price. Did you actually succeeded in having a price match and pay only 10$ for Leia because of that?

Well as far as my one and only local Walmart it looks like I will be out of luck for wave 2.  We received wave 1 back when they first hit and I did my part and took one of each and someone else around here took another set of three.  I thought things were looking good and I might see wave 2 until four days ago when the store got in another box of wave 1 :mad0218:, there are now six of each wave 1 figure sitting there and they are not going anywhere any time soon. :'(

If anyone on here can help me secure the three figures from wave 2 please send me a PM, I would really appreciate it.  On the flip side if anyone is have trouble finding wave 1 figures that they want, let me know and I can help you get them for exact cost and shipping.

AFAIK the Wave 1 case figures have only a date stamp of 52431 which means the Wave 1 figures I saw were repacks and not Wave 1 case leftovers. The report to Yakface indicated 5 Kylo, 3 Stormies, 2 Leia and a couple of repacks. I suppose there could be more than one Wave 2 case assortment. Is it possible the Walmart you were at put out 2 cases? In any case we need more data  :).

Scanning code of practice details are here http://www.competitionbureau.gc.ca/eic/site/cb-bc.nsf/eng/03252.html (http://www.competitionbureau.gc.ca/eic/site/cb-bc.nsf/eng/03252.html). Note that stores do not have to follow this code as it is voluntary. There was a discussion about this before on Snowtroopers and I believe it is mandatory in Quebec.

The store gave the Leia to me for 4.86. Reading the SCOP rules they should have given it to me for 1.92 but I'm not complaining too much. The tag on the peg hanger said 11.92 so they should have taken $10 off the corrected price.

In the excitement of wave 2 of The Black Series 3.75 inch, I forgot to mention something from yesterday's Walmart visit:  there was only one six inch Black Series figure on the Walmart shelf and it was a Guavian Enforcer.  It was my first time seeing that wave at Walmart.

For what it's worth, my local TRU has two Poe Dameron and two Zuvio 6 inch figures.

You may be right. Maybe they got two cases out. reports from all around tend to show a mix ratio of 4 Kylo, 3 FO Troopers and 2 Leia + 1 of each Vader, Luke and Chewie.

So I may ended up getting a full case minus the repack and someone else before me took away the first case.

The price tags here in the Montreal area clearly show 14.86$. That's why I preferred not to say anything, because what could have happened is that they would have offered me the lower price of 11.92$ for all the figures that were so marked in their computers and they would have left that Leia at the tag price of 14.86$. But, they maybe would have corrected the price of all other figures in their computer system to match the price tags so that new customer would pay the tag price in the future. I didn't want to shoot myself in the back for my next few purchases... LOL

Walmart in bc have it now. I showed up right after a full case was put out. Got 2 Stormtroopers and a Kylo Ren. I left the 3rd Stormtrooper cause the head was really bad. Unfortunately, they fixed the scanner issue and they rang up regular price. If they were the $11 price, I would have grabbed the 3rd Stormtroopers to make a custom Finn.

For case breakdown, I saw 3 Stormtroopers, 1 of each of the wave 1 figures, I can't remember if it was 1 or 2 Leia that I saw and the rest were Ren. He's the most plentiful to choose from.

I found the new SA figures at Wal-Mart. It was nice to see them and Kylo Ren is tempting, but just too expensive when I already got the 5POA figure for half the price. I hope this line does okay for the sake of the people who really want them, but that price has me concerned about the future of the SA line in this scale.

I saw TRU got in their exclusive 6-pack of 5POA figures (one set focusing on OT, the other on the PT).  I believe the price was $50, based on the gasp of shock from a parent who took one set to the price scanner to check how much it cost - she mumbled "Fifty--mumble-mumble- bucks" and put it back on the shelf  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

What's interesting is that in the PT pack, Hasbro had to toss in the super-articulated TVC Qui-Gon Jinn since they didn't want to bother tooling up a 5POA Qui-Gon just for this set...

I might be tempted if I find her in the wild but I'm guessing these are heading to ebay as it was the ONLY figure unavailable and I refuse to pay the scalpers. Ren and the trooper looked nice but I passed despite the temptation.

You best hope you don't find it then,  I saw a couple the other day.  I didn't get them as I'm really not liking the big bulky packaging for this size of figure, but the sculpt on Leia is fantastic.  I was actually quite surprised at the amount of cleavage she has!!

Hi guys,

I found the TRU Exclusive Captain Phasma and Poe Dameron 'Epic Battles' figures today.  Seems like a case had recently been put out - 6 of both figures. Still pricey in terms of the figure and what you get, but not a bad way to get a Phasma if you still want one in that line.

They also had the gigantic First Order Tie Fighter for the 6-inch line, going at 189.99.

Also, if you're still looking for the Black Series 6 inch wave 2 (and you're around Burlington/Oakville) send me a PM...might be able to help.

Damn! Ok well, if she's the only figure I buy this year I guess I can suck up the $15 plus tax price! Finding her seems to be the problem though. LIke I said, 3 pegs full of this series and she was the only one not found. I refuse to go the scalper route.

They are still part of the Armor Up Series, just the "epic battles" selection from the Armor Up series which I believes indicates a TRU exclusive as TRU are running the epic battles promotion and they come with 2 pieces of armor that most of us dont want instead of only 1 piece that we dont want.
Anyone else notice that that first piece cost an extra $5 and the second extra cost $3 more.  You could look at that as deal ... Or you might see it as $8 for extra armor that makes the figure look ridiculous.

I believe the mission series are still the 2 figure packs

I saw TRU got in their exclusive 6-pack of 5POA figures (one set focusing on OT, the other on the PT).  I believe the price was $50, based on the gasp of shock from a parent who took one set to the price scanner to check how much it cost - she mumbled "Fifty--mumble-mumble- bucks" ...

Yes they are 49.99.

Saw the TRU exclusive 64 piece Micro Machine set - 79.99, on sale this week for 59.97 because of the 25% Star Wars Micro Machine and Hot Wheels sale.

"Epic Battles" should be TRU exclusive stuff, coinciding with the medals. Those didn't look like new figures in that pack either - be careful & check to see if you REALLY need those before you pop for them!

Looks like:
Luke Bespin & Darth from the 5POA Mission Series 2 pack
Leia Endor & Biker Scout from 5POA Saga Legends and
Chewie & Stormtrooper, also from 5POA Saga Legends

Pack 2:
Darth Maul 5POA & Qui Gon, from what looks like approximately 2006 Saga Collection vintage (with the swivel elbows)
Mace Windu & Jango Fett 5POA (Mission Series or Saga Legends - not sure which)
Anakin & Obi Wan (ROTS versions) 5POA from what must have been a Mission Series 2 pack

True, that Qui=Gon Jinn figure is the exact same figure as the one released in the Saga Collection Evolutions (http://www.rebelscum.com/TACevoJediLegacy.asp) set in 2008, then re-released in 2012 in the Vintage Collection line as (VC #75 (http://www.rebelscum.com/TVC75QuiGon.asp)), but minus the cloak. That figure was later re-released the same year in the Walmart Exclusive line "Discover the Force" made for the 3D release of The Phantom Menace as figure #DTF08 (http://www.rebelscum.com/DTF08-Qui-Gon_Jinn.asp).

So this Qui-Gon Jinn figure is surprisingly the only super-articulated figure in the whole lot. Strange. Maybe Hasbro made a mistake.

But no. This is no mistake. The reason why they chose this figure is simple: Hasbro never ever produced a 5POA Qui-Gon Jinn!!! So when you imagine Hasbro being cheap when they produced the 5POA figures, no one would dare to say they can be even cheaper by not wanting to produce a 5POA version of Qui-Gon Jinn to fit with this multipack!!!

But the real question remains: who at Hasbro managed to have TRU agreed to carry such an AWFUL exclusive? I mean, these Mission Series figures never sold... so who would think an awful pack of such figures, with price probably set at 50$ at least like any TRU exclusive, would sell?

That guy at Hasbro who managed to have TRU sign this deal should be given a huge bonus. He must have brought that TRU rep to a strip club and paid him a lot of vodka shots and expensive champagne to close this deal.  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

The one thing TRU has going for them is Christmas. I have seen complete garbage sell out at my local TRU in the last minutes leading up to Christmas Eve. Stuff I was absolutely certain would still be piled high in January, just cleaned right out. And with the new movie coming out a week before, there will be lineups of clueless parents, grandparents etc just desperate to buy anything that says "Star Wars" on it in time to throw under the tree. And with the complete lack of anything GOOD being stocked at ANY retailers, people will have no choice but to buy this repacked junk.

Hey you're right!!! I come I missed this marvelous piece (http://www.rebelscum.com/Duel_On_Naboo_Hasbro_Star_Wars_Battle_Pack.asp)?!!  :o

Maybe it's because I was too thrilled shopping for the nice TVC Collection of figures (http://www.rebelscum.com/TVCfigures.asp)! I was blinded by the super articulated figures with awesome sculpts and I guess I forgot to look at the other marvels Hasbro had produced for us. LOL

So Hasbro is not that cheap after all. They did produce an horrible 5POA Qui-Gon Jinn after all!  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

The two releases that haven't been this one are the Naboo Duel and the light-up sabre versions.

So, for whatever reason, releasing this version certainly does seem to be a Hasbro thing to do.

Whole bunch of the new Walmart BS SA wave at a GTA Walmart this morning (PM me if you can't see the local forums). At least 6 boxes, with 2 sets of each at the new 14.86 price.

Glad to see that these are showing up, that Canada isn't getting short changed on this exclusive line. But I'm not getting it. I feel like the price is just too high to justify. I will get any interesting OT offerings but I'm making a clear line that I won't cross. I'm not going to collect any new 3.75 figures from any newer films and shows. It's an easy line to create and not cross I think. My "completist" side (or my version thereof) feels good about sticking to a 3.75 OT SA collection. Now I just have to keep this mentality after I've seen the new film and hear about SA 3.75 old Luke, Leia and Han showing up in the future!!!

To be quite frank, I'd much rather pay 17$ for a figure I WANT rather than 24$ on a figure I'm FORCED to accept as a "collector-oriented" product I really DON'T want.  :)

The 6 inches line selling at 25$ a piece for me is what is outrageous. There's honestly no lack in quality in the new TFA SA Black Series Walmart Exclusive figures: these are very nicely done, fully articulated and with likeliness defying the horrible sculpt of their 6 inches line counterparts. Trying to justify the higher price of the 6 inches line with the pounds of plastic being used to produce them is not a good reason enough for me to switch from a 3-3/4" collection filled with more than a thousand figures (if not more) to a 6 inches line of figures. To me, these new TFA SA figures are screaming evidence that this is what we could have got for the last 2 years if collectors has decided to send a real hard message to Hasbro by not buying the 6 inches line.  :-\

Basically, Hasbro should have increased the price point of the SA 3-3/4" figures from the very start and forget about the crappy 6 inches line. Even two years ago, I would have gladly put 14-15$ on the table for a nicely done and fully articulated 3-3/4" figure if it'd "guaranteed" me that the line would survive many years ahead. Now we just end up paying more to get what we got a few years back. But this compensate for the lack of figures we suffered from for the past 2 years, with only a handful of new sculpts among the few releases of the Black Series line.  :D :)

By the way, found this new Wave 3 of figures pretty much everywhere now. In 2-3 cases. So there won't be a lack of these, at least in Canada. On the other hand, what frustrates me is seeing these scalpers asking for outrageous prices for these figures on eBay, especially for the Troopers. It makes me sick...  ::)  :-[

To each their own. I'd much prefer more, better 3.75" figures myself, but I don't take anything away from Hasbro wanting to make nice 6" figures or anyone from wanting to buy them. Some of them are totally awesome - I just cannot commit to collecting another scale. It won't work financially. If I were a new collector though, or had just come back to it after a long layoff - I can definitely see how the 6" figures would be very appealing.

As always, vote with your dollars. All we can do.

Yeah, I'm not going for the 6" line either. I've just had enough and since this is now going to be a never ending supply of new characters with Disney promising a film a year…I'm out. I had reigned in my SW spending to OT only 3.75 before (then I bought some Rebels figures because I was shocked by how much I liked that show and my kid was into it too…a moment of lack of will power). And I will be keeping my eye on the SA 3.75 line but I'm not going to start buying all the TFA stuff because that's just the launching off point for a whole lot of spending in the years to come. I also think the lack of SA 3.75 before this exclusive line made this easier of course. I got used to not buying, I got used to not seeing anything on the pegs I wanted. And it taught me that I can live without it. I saw (and resisted buying with more ease than I expected) Kylo and the FO Troopers. I only bought Leia. I haven't opened her yet. The receipt is still in the bag. We'll see how long she stays in my possession. But I'm happy to see them showing up and I'm going to keep an eye on them for any wacky new cantina aliens etc. But I have a feeling that unless they were already sculpted and in the pipeline we'll be getting repacks and new TFA and beyond figures for the most part.

Sorry, I didn't meant that I'm a scalper or anything.  I'm just saying that in Canada, it's pointless buying to sell on Ebay, unlike in the US where they can actually make money doing this.  I just buy what I want and leave the rest.

I was at a Walmart 2 weeks ago when Wave 2 showed up.  Just put one case up on the shelf.  I bough just what I wanted for my own collection as it's too much hassle to try to scalp these from Canada.  With shipping prices and stuff, just not worth it.  I wanted the 3rd Stormtrooper but his head was just done too poorly so I left that one.  All gone the day after though.  Today, that same Walmart had a lone ROTJ Luke on the peg.

Wait what?  Why do we actively allow scalping talk and such?  This defeats the purpose of this community to help each other and alert new findings online and in store if most people here will empty shelves to scalp.

That's why we do not actually say the location of where we find things on these forums.  You have to get permission to join the local forums that actually post actual sightings and stuff.  This is actually to deter scalpers who lurk these forums from getting the scoop on new stuff.

Hahaha ok great, sorry I misinterpreted what you said.

Not toy related but Shopper's Drug Mart will have Star Wars Battlefront for $49.99 starting this Saturday.  Good price and it has only been out a couple weeks.

We don't promote scalping at all, but we realize it's a part of the hobby. Many of us have tried to help, helped and/or received help from other members over the years on these boards, and one of my biggest hopes is that we continue to have each others' backs when it comes to finding the new stuff we want. I can tell from reading the posts day in & day out that many, many Troopers are going out of their way to help the other members - and let me say a big thanks for all of that!!!

I haven't seen it reported yet, so in case anyone was interested:  TRU is carrying the Blueprints Paper Craft "Death Star" Deluxe Pack playset. This lets you make a cardboard recreation of the Death Star II Throne Room, sadly probably a little too small and simplistic to function for any 3.75" figures.

The cost is $30. 

edit: I just saw a pic of the playset with some 3.75" figures and it's not as small as I thought.  If there were some way to replace the default flat stairs with real steps, this set would've been far more impressive.

There is a Buy, Sell and Trades - Modern Star Wars section in the Hoth marketplace that you can start your own thread posting what you are looking for and you might find some help from fellow members.

London Drugs is different than Shoppers.  I don't recall see anything in Shoppers.

I'd suggest calling around or visiting TRUs.  They claim to have the largest selection of Paw Patrol in Canada.

Also, there are building block kits, so you can check the LEGO section, too.

All good - glad you got something & hope they loved it this morning! I know the Paws Patrol is a big deal as a lady at work was demanding to be taken to TRU on a lunch break in a panic a few weeks ago, they were on sale & she knew they'd be snapped up if she didn't hurry.

For anyone interested in the 18" Jakks figures, TRU has the New Hope 4 pack (Vader,Stormy,Tusken,Luke) on clearance for $49.99.   They also have buy one get one half off all clearance.  So I was able to pick up a set for myself and another trooper for $37.50 each.  Pretty good deal considering it works out cheaper per figure than the 3 3/4" figs.  The regular price was $100 which I knew was way too high.  I remember in the fall thinking if I could get this set for $70 I would be happy.    I actually like these figures, much better quality and detail than the shampoo bottle 12".

I ordered mine from BBTS. They have the pile of loot and I find this works pretty well. I can look at it this way, I am spending less money on gas so the money saved goes to the higher cost of toys in the USA. If the price of gas goes up so will our dollar thus the price of toys in the USA for us comes down. In the end it probably evens out.

Think it's a new sighting but found the Titanium Helmet 2 packs at Walmart ********** yesterday.  They look great, pretty sure they were $20 a set.

Thank you for the post. I'm editing out the specific location of the store so that the Hot Wheels crazies don't storm the place & buy everything to resell on ebay.

Thanks - after a few more posts I'll change your access so you can see & post in the Provincial forums, that's where we keep track of exactly what is being found, when, where & by whom - hopefully helping you find the stuff you want quicker & more efficiently.

EDITED: Checked your date of joining & modified your profile - if you log out & back in you should now see an area called "The Outer Rim" near the bottom of the listings, each province & territory will have a separate section with discussions about specific things found in specific spots - hopefully you find them useful.  :r2d2line:

Found 2 cases of Black Series Wave 1, 2016 tonight at a Walmart on a skid.

Oops, didn't realize this was the Jango Fett wave thought it was the wave with Ahsoka in it.
I saw the Jango wave before Christmas and they put out 2 cases of it last week at the same store.

There was also a 2015, wave 1 case for the 3.75 black series on the skid as well.

That explains why my hunt this morning seemed so "unsatisfying"! Nothing but those 3 figures. I did however spot the better painted 6" Rey, FO stormtrooper, TIE pilot and resistance trooper at one Walmart. Left them all as I don't collect that at all.

Gawd I'm dying for a 6" Rey.  I literally have not seen a single 6" figure other than Finn for over 3 months.  did a run yesterday, and empty shelves last week turned into Finn, 3 Finns and 8 Finns on the pegs. 
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: old man ben on February 08, 2016, 03:03:58 PM
I know the feeling.  Last Thursday and Friday I hit more than ten Walmarts and saw virtually nothing but 6" Finns.  I did manage to find in one store only a 6" Flametrooper along with a Phasma and Rebellion Trooper.  I left the last two as I already have them. Today I did four more Walmarts and found only one store with another Flametrooper, a Finn and a new Finn (FN2187) which I bought.  No sign of any Han's or Jango's.  A few of the stores had a restock of Wave 1 of the Black series 3.75" figures but most were just empty pegs.

I know it's probably too early to know for sure, but since it seems that just about every year Canada skips a wave, I wonder if the Han and Rey (Resistance outfit) 3 3/4 wave is going to be one of those situations. Does anyone know for sure if this wave is actually on order in Canada?
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: dangerlinto on February 08, 2016, 07:48:18 PM
What's really frustrating is I had a 6" Rey I got just after Force Friday, kept it hidden, but when I couldn't find literally any other Rey products after TFA came out and my daughter turned into a Rey fanatic, Santa gave it to her. 

And like a good girl, she opened it.  I figured I'd find another one. 

I wouldn't take it back for the world (she loves her rey figure.  She keeps it beside her on her nightstand when she sleeps) , but man I can't believe I can't find another.

As far as I know the wave that will skip Canada is Fat Rex, Unkar Plutt and Stormtrooper Finn.  I don't know in any of those will be brought back in the future as carry forwards but they will not be over the next few cases.  I have been told that the other waves will be available in Canada, including Han and Rey.

Regina Superstore has the Legendary Yoda large animated figures on for $49.94.  That's $148.05 off, or basically 75% off.  Still not picking one up but that's a heck of a deal if you were on the fence.

My local TRU had the Black Series Titanium helmet packs (the miniature ones with the FO Stormtrooper/Phasma and Kylo Ren/Poe's X Wing Helmet).  They didn't have a price on them though so I'm not sure what they're ringing up at.

The 12 inch Captain Phasma TRU exclusive had also been restocked, as had the first two waves of 5POA figures.  Nothing new 6-inch-wise.

Sigh.

A note to dangerlinto, there will be more 6" Rey's coming again in future waves.  Ian Toronto already reported seeing some a couple of weeks ago, and the US on line stores show her being included in the next couple of waves.  Hopefully you can find another for yourself.

Found the Legendary Yoda at another Superstore for the same 49.94. Location in the provincials. This location also had the Class II vehicles and Poe's X-Wing at 50% off. The signage indicated only 25% off but they scanned at 50% off.

I hit four more Walmarts today in search of new 6" figures - Milton, Woodstock, Tilsonburg and Cambridge - but only a few Finn's on the pegs.  The day wasn't a loss though.  As a result of General Brashin's tip I was able to pick up one of the four Legendary Yoda's he reported yesterday for $50.  As of nine AM this morning there were now two left as someone else was picking one up the same time as me.

I've heard and mentioned the same thing about six inch Hux and Asty, as far as I know now they will not be coming to Canadian retail.  The snowtrooper however is supposed to be carried forward with Wave 6 and that wave should be making it to Canada.

BS 6 inch wave 6:
2x SW E7 FIRST ORDER SNOWTROOPER
1x SW E7 HAN SOLO
1x SW R KANAN JARRUS
1x SW R AHSOKA TANO
1x SW E4 LUKE SKYWALKER

It's impossible to get the new BS figures here. It's always resistance trooper and Finn I see. I asked the TRU employee and she said that they just keep getting shipped only one case at a time. Wish they would get more so I can have a shot at the new stuff. I finally caved in and bought a new Rey. Her paint is miles above the original release.
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!

Agreed. For whatever reason, Hasbro seems to have stocked up on the Resistance Trooper/Tie Pilot wave.  It's all I've seen too. 

They better be ready to have just as much of the old Han/Jango wave and the eps4 Luke wave...
Title: Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
Post by: JM Owen Skywalker on February 13, 2016, 03:57:48 PM
Montreal has been a lot of Finns, Resistance troopers, Captain Zuvios, Reys, but there were a couple of Rena, and FO Tie Pilots. All of which were found in the Wal-Mart's and TRUs.

Saw a 6" Kylo Ren at Walmart.  Unfortunately, it wasn't the newest one.  This one was the transition one where his softgoods were cut better (shorter and smaller hood) and the lightsaber hilt had the additional paint apps.  However, his cloak is still the smooth textured one.  Seeing how hard it is to get any Star Wars 6" figures that aren't Finn when he's on Jakku or a certain constable, I picked it up anyways.  With the soft goods and lightsaber hilt updates, then I think I am happy enough.

I saw 2 FO trooper 6" in the wild. I'm not collecting them but if someone is PM me and I could see if they are still there on the way into work tomorrow...also saw at least one Kylo at this same location though I have no idea what version he is. Rey too.

Yeah found in Quebec too at 2 different Walmarts. Finn, Unkar and Rex (in Santa on Vacation Disguise)!

I was looking for the Ithano mission pack (no sign yet) but was shocked by this find since we had heard rumblings they would not be coming. My son is going to do cartwheels over FN-2187!!!

Post by: 66jedikiller66 on February 17, 2016, 12:38:30 PM
Guys, if figures continue selling the way they are I don't think Canada will miss a single wave this year.
I have 2 Walmarts in my city and both have been pretty much bone dry for the past 6 weeks, these things are going to fly off the shelf.
I'm expecting the other 2 waves to be showing up within a week or so, as well.
What sucks is that I'm just finishing 11 days of vacation and have been going every night to check skids.
Unfortunately I work nights so I'll have to wait until the morning now.
I have a case on hold at BBTS for the Rey/Han wave and a case on order for the Adm. Ackbar wave too.
That just leaves the Tassu Leech wave to worry about and I honestly wouldn't be surprised if that shows up in the next week or so too.

I forgot to mention that there seemed to be a restock of the first waves (troopers, Kylo, Rey, Finn and also Hux etc). Saw a mix of these with the Unkar/Rex wave. Maybe stuff left in the stock room from post xmas inventory?

Went to a Superstore in BC yesterday and they restocked on the older 5 POA figures (they had the wave that had Hux).  They also got the new Ezra Speeder.  Too bad they raised their prices on Class 1 to $29.99.  I passed on it.  Even the Class 1 Walker with Stormtrooper is $29.99 too.

Found the Black Series Wave 3 Titanium vehicles at a couple of TRUs:

18 AT-AT (didn't actually see one at either TRU)

Yes, they shipped. Sorry for not mentioned before, was too overwhelmed at work and got very sick last week, but grabbed these sets 2 weeks ago or so at Walmart in Montreal. They're packed in one each alongside a few old ones (BB-8/Scavengers, Ashoka/Vader, R2/C3PO and I can't remember which other pack).

I found the Unmasked Kylo wave and the Resistance Rey wave today at my local Walmart. Interestingly, the other Walmart in town had nothing and the toy department folks seemed frustrated with the fact that they hadn't received much of anything lately.

Toys R Us had the Resistance Rey wave and the Jango Black Series wave.

No two packs. 

The hunt continues...

Also had Ezra Speeder but passed on it. the other walmart in trenton, had no new figures but did see a box sitting on a shelf unopened and was able to score the 2 new 2 packs. only one per box. no new 6" figures thou, just lots and lots of Finns

Funny that the 2 packs are only packing 1 each of those...funny for 2 reasons. 1. They are the NEW figures so why pack them short??? 2. Entertainment Earth listed their cases as 2 of each (including Thug/bb-8 and Vader Ahsoka.

...it's been a busy week.

I recommend hitting both Walmart and Toys R Us if they're in your area.

I've only seen the Captain Rex wave and the Unmasked Kylo wave at Walmart but I've seen the Rey Resistance wave at both stores. 

As for the two-packs, I got lucky at Walmart.  I figured they wouldn't have anything and went in as an afterthought and there they were!

I haven't seen (or heard of) the Ackbar wave in Canada yet. 

As for the Hux wave, my understanding was that that wave of the Black Series 6 inch was being skipped in Canada for whatever reason.  I think it was either Jeditemplearchives or Rebelscum that reported that the wave might be reappearing as late as June, but I'm not sure if that's only for the USA or if it means Canada will eventually get a shot at it.  So far purchasing from an online USA retailer is the best bet, although it hurts when you take into consideration shipping, scarcity and the exchange.

Oh - and I don't know if anyone is interested in the 12 inch heroes line or anything, but I did see Rey in that line at Walmart.  They also had the Bladebuilder/FX lightsaber with her face on the package for Anakin/Luke's blue bladed saber.

For those of you missing having Legends' online site to order from, this newer site might be worth checking out: https://www.canucktibles.ca/
Good for pre-orders, and I think there is even a local pickup option if you're in the Golden Horseshoe / GTA area. I haven't used them but they seem to be starting off the right way. I'll post this in the "Just Found: Other" thread as well (unless there's a better location to post it?)

got the general hux 6 inch pre order thru toysonfire.com paying stupid price for it but better then not finding them at all.

wow. late to the party with walmart.ca but checked hoping Jango would still be available. To my surprise, the whole wave is still available. So did Walmart finally clue in that these are big sellers and order more stock, or are these figures not selling as fast? I'm partial to more stock because this wave seems pretty solid (No Zuvio types). IIRC Boba sold pretty fast and didn't last this long online.

Regardless, glad it's available and still lower pricing than TRU.

So I'm not really finding much of anything 'new' these days (other than the FN-2187 armor up figure and the elite tie pilot armor up)...  but I did find a whooooooooooooooooooooole lot of Jango Fetts and Phasmas.

Yeah, I saw 7 cases of these on a skid last week at a Walmart in Ontario.
With the price increase Walmart may have bought up all the existing stock at the old price.
Hopefully they will be in clearance soon.

Toysrus.ca had Ackbar and the Fifth Brother for sale.  No sign of Taso.  Ordered them only to see a notice that Ackbar is on backorder now - so I am guessing Tasu was sold out.

I've been watching the site too!

Sadly, usually nothing happens. 

I was a Chapters over the weekend and I saw that Forest Mission 5 pack and was like cool.  Wasn't interested in it at all but was nice to see it.  Then I looked and thought it odd that BB8 was featured so prominently on the package art and that's when I realized that he was missing.  If I'm not mistaken, this is an online exclusive so I guess some low life bought it online and then refunded at the store and since the employees probably never saw this before, probably had no idea.

It's weird - I was able to get my order in around noon with Ahsoka, Kanan, Luke and a Snowtrooper.  I'm hoping they don't pull at Toys R Us on me and either cancel or send me the wrong thing.

Well, Ahsoka and Luke are sold out now. :(

I guess when I saw the thread and ordered, it was already out of stock which was why it didn't let me finalize the order.

Just out of curiosity, if I were to buy another item just to get free shipping, if I refund that, do they make me pay for shipping or would they accept the refund as is?
