I saw an OTC Vader Tie and X-wing at TRU on Yonge and Eglington. They were 30-40 bucks each.

Nothing at TRU on Hurontario in Mississauga, nor at WalMart Square One.
The #2 closeout on Star Wars figures were only $5.98, not $1.98 as reported elsewhere.

Thanks for the responses.  I'm going to pass on any tri-logo OTCs this year as the packaging is just too cool for it to be ruined by all the added text and reduction in graphics.  
Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: old man ben on July 09, 2004, 03:00:38 PM
Pedro's stock at Toy Addict is NOT Tri-logo.  All are English only, front and back, including the OTC figures I got from Legends in Montreal.

The only French I have seen is an extra sticker on the OTC Vintage figures of Han and Leia.  There is a Warning sticker - choking hazard which is translated inti French and placed on top of the outside Starcase.

What is the "superstore"...and does anyone know when the mellenium falcon will be realeased in Canada...toronto area..i was also wondering if anyone knows where i can find VOTC figures..i believe TRU does not carry them..even the thornhill location..i could be wrong

TRU should be carrying the VOTC figures soon. And 'The real canadian superstore' is a grocery store.

Superstore is the Real Canadian Superstore.  It is what Loblaws is called in BC

Post by: Johnny B. on July 10, 2004, 02:49:34 AM
Ah...Must be them new supersized Loblaws...There's a large Loblaws in Markham (northeast of Markville Mall) that used to carry some Saga figs.  I should check sometime if they got some new stuff in.  If anyone goes there, the toy section is approximately in the central part of the place.
Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: old man ben on July 10, 2004, 09:46:44 AM
Loblaws has just opened a Superstore in Oakville - Dundas and Trafalgar, across from WalMart.  There is another scheduled for Winston Churchill and the 401 later this year.  They are much like a Walmart with electronics, books, pharmacy, crispy cremes store, etc etc.

Post by: NorthernSolo on July 11, 2004, 08:14:21 AM
Wal-Mart in PTBO has glutted itself on the Yavin wave and according to store policy the OTC figures they have in stock will not be sold until existing stock is taken care of, and employees refuse to open any new cases since they have a whole THREE PEGS allotted to SW figures in the store which is WAY TOO MUCH for a non-movie year.  
 Zellers on the other hand has full price Taun We's and Zams on the shelf with a stack of Ultras (but no Ultra Jabba damn them!) but no other figures in sight. They apparantly can't determine if they have any stuff in stock since all the SKUs are diff on each fig. (These people are obviously not the sharpest knives in the drawer, since we all know it would be easy to walk into the back and look for the box that says "Hasbro Star Wars") According to the manager of the local Zellers, SW is a seasonal product and since there will be no movie til 2005, they won't order new product. I pointed out that the DVD release was one of the most anticipated sets to hit DVD players in years - but that supposedly doesn't make 2004 count as a movie year.  We have no superstores or TRUs around here so it looks like I will have to wait for my Dagobah Luke and Yoda. I anticipate finding them in 16-29 months.

Alright I've been in the loop with SW for quite a long time now, haven't even looked at the figures for over a month, are you guys talking the repackaged stuff or those new vintage ones, because i saw a bunch of them today at TRU today for 14.99
Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: jjreason on July 13, 2004, 01:24:14 AM
The new vintage ones are of interest to most of us, Ronch, but the OTC carded figures (some new, some newly painted and some totally repacked) are of interest as well. Thanks for the post of your find!

Just a sidebar on my previous post - Vintage figures ROCK - if this is a taste of what Hasbro has in store for us with these dozen figures then  :o

Ironically, I being a Harrison Ford/Han Solo fan wound up nabbing the Vintage OTC Han Solo on Ford's birthday no less! Talk about karma! And for the record I HIGHLY recommend getting 1 if not 2 of each of these VOTC jobbies - I have mine set up now (opened - but with the card in perfect condition minus the outer bubble) and I'm wishing I had a carded fig IN the case on top of the actual figure posed in front - Yes people - these figures are THAT GOOD. Enough said - Whitby TRU for anyone near it - they have them in oodles - and a slew of Saga Snowtroopers too for you army builders - even tho that doesn't REALLY count as a OTC find....

I need to go find an optimum pose for Solo now.....NorthernSolo out!

Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: NorthernSolo on July 14, 2004, 06:57:35 AM
I almost forgot - I remember seeing someone mention that the VOTC figs they got had been "Quebec-ized" with the little french warning stickers. The ones I got in Whitby yesterday were clear of those and according to the underside legal and manufacturing blurb, it appears these figs originated in the UK! (My Wampa apparantly too!) Am glad to see Hasbro Canada isn't being allowed to ruin the aesthetic look of the new packaging with a glut of french all over it (don't even get me started on DVD packaging in Canada) Anyhoo - not that huge an issue but I'm sure some will wonder. Also, the black warning sticker on the inside of the star case comes off very easily with no residue to ruin the shell. And yeah - I'm still wishing I'd bought 2 of each now. ???

PS: I'm not anti-Quebec or anti-French (I grew up in Montreal and some of my best friends are french) I just hate having the packaging changed entirely just to accomodate a translation of the movie and character's names when it's obvious that most if not all SW figs/movies are universally recognizable - and the bloody DVD packaging.... French on the other side should mean one side is ALL English and one side is ALL french - not both in varying sizes on each side....Wake up movie studios - End of rant. Coffee time. Sorry for being off-topic

Get up to the Hamilton TRU if you need the VOTC figures. They just put out 3 cases when I got there at 4PM today. No Lukes yet. Also, they are not in the action figure isle, but are on the floor display when you turn left past the spider man display. Go Get em!

From what i hear this VOTC are not going to be around for too long...but, could change depending on how they sell+ how the repacked stuff sells aswell.
Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: markdelete on July 16, 2004, 08:29:48 PM
there are 3 sets of VOTC figures that will be releasesed from now till September and the shipments should all have some figures from the previous set when each is released. like right now in the 1st set Luke is the tough one to find BUT should be in the Empire VOTC set as well. Im gona guess that either Vader or Yoda will be the rare one in the Empire set and so one for the ROTJ set.
you can check entertainmentearth.com to give you an idea on how the figures are shipped.

Thanks for the info markdelete.So in the last few weeks i picked up DV tie and VOTC han x2  a leia and a obi-wan..all from TRU cedarbrae and also a OTC tie fighter from Silver Snail...the falcon is $109.99 thats pretty high..i think TRU will have it cheaper for sure..but, i am un-aware when it will be realeased at TRU..the american date is july 25..anyone have any idea when we will see this in TRU?

I picked up a new OTC Luke, but in the "Hand Stand" pose variation...got it at The Toy Addict in Toronto for $9.99 after Snowtroopers Discount.  I'll post a picture once my camera battery charges up.

I found the same situation in the Detroit, Michigan area last weekend.  I went to 5 Targets, 2 TRUs, 2 K-Marts, 3 Meijer's and 2 KB Toys.  Not a single OTC or VOTC figure in sight.  Just the OTC Vader Tie, X-Wing and regular Tie at the TRU.  Very, very dissapointing to say the least.  I did pick up a few bargains though at KB.  The funny thing is, when I get back I find the first wave of VOTC on our TRU store shelves.  I thought for sure we would lag behind the US.  Hopefully, the OTC are not too far behind.

At least 2 cases of VOTC came (and went) in TRU Victoria on Friday.

The question has probably been asked elsewhere on these boards already but 'how do Jedi Council Scenes fit into the OTC?'  There was no Jedi Council in the original trilogy.  That's like having a two-pack of bounty hunters in the Princess Leia Collection(POTF2).  Gimme a break.  What's next?-OTC Jar Jar?

Now there's some good news. I was concerned about having to rely on my US sources (namely one brother that isn't a real motivated SW shopper) for these. Saves shipping money too, so I'm not to cranky about the likely Canadian Price (I'm expecting 29.99??? Anyone heard?).

Seeing suggestions on the net that there are both versions and this one is the more 'rare' version, or so ebay sales are indicating.  I like the grey much better as well, but from a value standpoint maybe you should have picked it up.  

Here's a stupid question:  regarding the Jedi Council scenes, how do the sets from last year fit in with these?
Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: jjreason on July 21, 2004, 04:07:24 PM
The 4 new sets will make up the rest of the "ring" of seats, along with the centre of the ring floor. I'm not sure if they plan on rereleasing the Saga sets or not.

By the way, how does the Jedi Council fit into the "Original Trilogy" collection? Anyone? Bueller?

I want Luke too, only one I couldn't preorder from my place in the US. Where the hell are the basic figures? My Superstore hasn't put anything out (really though, they're way behind - more toys on top of the shelves than on them) and Walmart hasn't put any new figures out for a few weeks now. Still nothing at TRU either, their first VOTC lot sold out within 2 days here.

Congrats, rpa. I've been checking my Superstore pretty close to daily since the first report came in about the OTC being found there. Nothing here yet, but my Superstore seems to have given up on toys. They have so many cases of toys on TOP of the racks, and so few things out for display in the aisle. Time for a big clearance there methinks.

Wal-Mart out here in Peterborough has nothing beyond the Endor wave. Oh, they also have 2 dozen Captain Antilles/Dodonnas sitting on the shelves. Apparantly the store has no control over what they get in shipments anymore since it's done from a central location that just decides what stores need what. (the Wal-Mart CIA? Hopefully it works better than the US CIA!!) Anyhoo...........For those reasons I predict I will NEVER see an OTC figure in this town.

That's good news, I hadn't heard about an OTC find at Canadian WalMat until I read that post. I guess ours should be here in 1-2 weeks. I wonder how many different figures we'll be getting in our cases? Folks in the states have reported finding up to 22 different OTC basics at once.

It will probably be like the HOF, mix of both U.S. and Canadian cards and people will grab the Canadian cards for thier U.S. friends that like variations leaving the U.S. carded stuff for the rest of us :)

First OTC Basics for me found today at WalMart Nanaimo. Dagobah Luke, R2 and Yoda along with repacked Han and Chewie. All trilogo "starburst" jobbies. I bought the 3 new figures along with Chewie, but I'll be taking Chewie back. He's the same (paintwise) as POTJ Falcon Mechanic.

Has anyone found a full case out yet? What else is there? I found only 8 figures at my store, and bought 4 of them. Chewie is going back however.

Luke x2
Yoda x2
R2D2 x2
Chewie
Han

There must have been 4 others, but I haven't read anywhere what they would have been. I have a few thoughts: a full Dagobah wave with Obi Wan, or maybe just a couple with a Jedi Luke and an X-Wing Luke. Anyone find these other figures yet?

I found a fresh case today at Walmart in North Bay, Ontario. There are one of each of the first 11 figures plus an extra Biker Scout. Hope this helps.
BTW, I will still be passing on these and just picking up the 7 new figures on the US cards plus the Scanning Trooper that I never got ;)

The Canadian (Starburst background) cases has a different ratio then the US.  I found the following on CDN cards at a Wal-mart(in Winnipeg):

2 Dag Luke (standing)
1 Dag Obi-wan
2 Dag R2-D2
1 Jedi Luke
2 Han Solo
1 Chewy
1 Dag Yoda

the other 2 were gone!  I'm guessing another Yoda was one.

That is the assortment I found as well:

1 yoda

1 spirit of ben
1 jedi luke
1 x-wing look
1 solo

1 leia
1 Vader

WAL-MART in Peterborough:

Luke Skywalker
R2-D2

Those are the only two they had - $8.92 each on the starburst back. Nice figs - crap packaging. Looks like there coulda been more there but were bought already - asked some lady workin in toys to see if there were extra stock and without even checking I got the "WYSIWYG" reply.... ::) Oh, Wal-Mart....

Still - nice to see we're at least GETTING the new figs now! Woulda been nice if they'd got a shipment from the US instead tho cuz the starburst packaging is worthless compared to the uber-cool photo backs. Oh well....Now all I need is Yoda! I better get him soon too - cuz at this rate all the blood will flow to Luke's head and he'll pass out!

PS: GREAT sound on R2 - MUCH improved over Saga version. Love the "scream"

WAL-MART IN PETERBOROUGH ON THURS:

Luke (Dagobah)
Luke (X-Wing)
Han
Chewie

Am thinking they stuck them out early - cuz it was slim pickings left. Didn't get any of them since Dagobah Luke's the only one I was after and I got him already. Nice to see a consistent re-stock. ALMOST got X-Wing Luke and then said forget it. If only I'd stopped in there BEFORE I went for my Army physical today @ 8am I mighta scored Yoda! Dang! Oh well...

Found 2 more cases of OTC starburst at my Walmart in North Bay, Ontario today. The case breakdown was different from the first 2 cases I found however. Here it is;

2 Dagobah Luke
2 Dagobah R2
2 Dagobah Yoda
1 Spirit Ben
1 Han
1 Chewy
1 Luke X-wing
1 Luke Jedi
1 Vader ROTJ

The previous 2 cases had 1 of each of the first 11 figures and an extra Biker Scout. If anyone needs these LMK and I'll get them for you for cost plus shipping.

7 repacks/repaints: Jedi Luke, X-Wing Luke, Commtech Han, Mechanic Chewie, New Likeness Leia, (Clean) Biker Scout, and Commtech Stormtrooper.

Hey - just came from the TRU in Kitchener (ON).  They've got a bunch of OTC Falcons, the "ask Yoda" both versions new and old, OTC Darth Vader's TIE and Red Leader and X-wing (they've had these a while), OTC Jedi Council Set 1 and about two boxes worth of the "starburst" tri-logo OTC figures!  

I took only the Darth Vader and Dagobah Luke (I also saw Leia, Han, Spirit of Obi-Wan, Biker Scout, R2-D2, Luke X-wing, Yoda and Chewbacca).  There were doubles of Biker Scout and Spirit of Obi-wan .. if you want any of the others I'd suggest you get there quick :-*!!

Boba Fett

Luke X-Wing
Luke Jedi
Darth ROJ
Spirit Obi Wan

Passed on C3PO, Han, and doubles of the other 3 Dagobah figures. I don't know who the 12th figure in the case would have been. EDIT: Yes I do, looking back 3 posts it would appear the missing figure was a Stormtrooper. Cool case.

I so hate this mentality.  Y'know, if they were all new figures, fine, whatever, someone will still open them.  But with 75%ish of this line being rehashes and Canadian cards sucking ka-ka compared to US cards, this just isn't helping anyone.  

I had a thread about this months ago with the HOF stuff.  Some jacka$$ bent three HOF cards - chewie, leia and Obi.  They are still sitting there.  No kids clamoring for stuff they can't get cuz of big, bad toy collectors.  Nope, just dead inventory at Zellers six months later.  Morons.  Just slightly higher forms of life than the dread pirate scalpers.

I'm hit and miss. The Dagobah figures look really great on their US movie shot cards, but Darth Vader doesn't really show up against his. The Starburst is nice contrast to the black figure. I think it also looks really good with Fett, but I don't know which movie backdrop they used for the US card on that figure.

 X-Wing Luke
 Jedi Luke
 Han
 Boba Fett

Apu, I might have to hit you up for a favor - if there's nothing here in a week or so, I'll PM you and ask you to pick me up a set (I'd of course send you the $ in advance).

Kitchener Walmart has C-3PO, Han, Stormtrooper (dent in the internal bubble), Greedo, Yoda, R2, Spirit of Ben, Dagobah luke, Pilot luke, and Darth Vader on tri-logo OTC cards.

Also located tri-logo hall of fame carded figures of Lando (death star attack and skiff guard), General Antillies, General Dononna, General Madine, Gold Leader and probably more I couldn't remember -- anyone collect these?? - these were at a zellers .. also had Dengar

TRU Kitchener this morning (Thurs Aug 26th)... lots of VOTC Luke, Han, Ben and Leia (two pegs full .. about 5 of each ... well 4 Lukes now as I snagged one!).  Also 2 OTC X-wings and 2 OTC Tie Fighters!  Nice to see that they got a second shipment of VOTC (the first one of Han, Ben and Leia didn't last long).

I found my 4th case of the Boba/3PO/Stormy/Greedo assortment at Walmart in North Bay, Ontario today. I picked up the Boba for a friend. He was hidden behind some other toys actually. I was really hoping to find the Bossk/IG-88/R2/Tie Pilot assortment. Has anyone seen these at retail yet? Still it was good to see the 2 pegs they have full again (lol). Now if someone will only buy those 4 Saga Dengars  ::)

TRU Markville in Markham has new stock on OTC Vader and Luke lightsabres, restock on VOTC Hans and Lukes, new stock on VOTC Vaders and Yodas, and quite a few new OTC 'starburst' figures such as Boba Fett, Greedo, standard R2-D2, Bespin Leia, Lobot, Tatooine Obi-Wan, Cloud Car Pilot...Sorry I grabbed the last two Stormtroopers.  I also grabbed two of each of the VOTC Vader and Yoda, one set for me and one set for Etobicoke Fett.  No sign of VOTC Lando or C-3P0 yet.  

Also Walmart at Markville had squat.  Just about five saga figs on the one peg...SIGH!

I hit three different TRU stores in western Toronto today with generally disappointing results:

Woodbridge - 1 only VOTC Han
Hurontario/Eglington - no OTC or VOTC
Hwy 7/Hwy410- no OTC or VOTC

Most had all the Jedi council sets in abundance, some OTC vehicles, Galactic Heroes Falcon, and many older figures but virtually nothing in VOTC or OTC packaging.

I am still looking for Vader and Yoda VOTC.

The stores must be starting to load up for the 21st, as today I hit two of the stores closest to where I live and hit paydirt!

WalMart at the 401 and Winston Churchill had a whole end cap full of the new Commemorative Trilogy DVD packs - all three is full supply at $14.92 each.  This means you can have ten rehash figures for a total of $51 with taxes.

And around the corner in the action figure aisle they had a full new assortment of OTC figures, including Boba Fett, StormTrooper, Old Ben, Ewok, Luke X-wing, Cloud Car Pilot, Bossk, Lobot, Leai Bespin, C-3PO...all on starburst cards so I left them all.

TRU on Hurontario also had most of the same OTC figures as above, but even better, they had four full pegs of VOTC figures including Darth Vader, Yoda, Han, and Luke...at least 8 of each one.

After being all over the city/countryside for the last few weeks I find them all close to home!

As of yesterday at woodbridge TRU they had VOTC yoda, luke and han, NO OTC figures, and a couple OTC 12" stormtroopers and lukes.

Also had the Falcon playskool thing. Sooo expensive. Very cool looking and bigger than i thought it would be (I'd only seen pics online). But not in my budget. I may get the 2-pack with vader (if there is one) for my vader collection, but thats about all I will get from that line. I wonder if we will see the 2-packs here in canada.

Walmart around the corner had the trilogy DVD figure sets in abundance, and some OTC starburst; greedo, c-3po, han, and some others. Don't remember which. Only 2 pegs full though.

Saw Lando and C3P0 at Oakville ToysRUS. Only problem was that someone had sat on the Star Case and totally ruined them. So I left them 1 of each. Also checked out ToysRUS at Sherway, nada.

So still looking for these two, any help would be great.
Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: NorthernSolo on September 26, 2004, 09:37:42 AM
It appears to me that stores are really dropping the ball with the DVD sales. A movie set that pulls in over 100 million in sales in one day to most people would be a good selling product - and you can bet lots of kids are seeing the films for the first time. Stores could be making a right KILLING on SW toys right now with the release of the OT - and yet it seems as though Wally in particular couldn't give a rat's ass about it. Wasn't the whole point to the OTC line to coincide with the DVD release? And what about the Vintage? Hasbro has been plugging how good that line is for ages! I've watched as the 3-packs have quickly disappeared off the shelf at my local Wally, and am amazed that they haven't bothered to order any VOTC or OTC figures. From the way it looks, they got 2 cases of SW figs and (literally) crammed them all onto 2 pegs amidst a sea of Ninja Turtles and Yu-Gi-Oh crap. (We're talking the cardbacks are TRASHED by the time some inept Wally worker has gotten through with them) Oh but wait - SW toys don't sell is always Wally's mantra - that must be why by the end of the weekend they won't have any 3packs left. It also goes against the fact that when they put out 10 cases of Saga figs in 2002 they were all sold in a day. Truly disappointing considering when the OTC first got put out here it was like 8 pegs filled with them - not a Cloud Car Pilot and Bespin Leia in amongst dozens of Antilles and Dodonnas. Wally needs a Hasbro rep to come in and explain to the associates that nobody is interested in buying Admiral Ozzel now that most other stores are receiving Vintage Chewbacca and Boba Fett! Isn't there some way that stores have to return unbought stuff? I mean - when the layer of dust on a figure reaches 10 inches I think it's time to rethink here! Zellers is also right up there with UTTER uselessness. It's too bad that they're the only two stores Peterborough has that sells the stuff. (Zellers still has Zam and Taun We on the shelf for sale at full price to give you an idea) Rant over. I know this is a little off topic - Should be more like Post LACK of OTC finds here....
Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: jjreason on September 26, 2004, 12:53:41 PM
I feel your pain. I thought TRU and Wally here were waiting to load up for the DVD's - I was wrong. Neither place has had any new stuff since the release, heck we haven't even seen the 3 packs here yet at all.

I think the only thing we can do is buy up the crap and donate it for tax receipts. The stores' ordering is all done via computer now, based on what the tills are ringing through. I don't think we can safely lay stuff away and expect to see the shelves restocked, we have to buy it up.

Zellers IS the worst, they still have 2002 Saga stuff here as well, not to mention an episode I Padme if you look hard enough. Unbelievable, since they've put so many other things on clearance in the meantime. A nice donation of the stuff to "Toys for Tots" or something would clear the space and might trigger the re-ordering of new stuff, although the "con" is a big one: having to spend the money on crap you don't want. Just an idea though.

Post by: stormtripper on September 26, 2004, 04:48:56 PM
well I didn't find Lando and C 3po but there was some new star wars at my local zellers.

VOTC Vader and VOTC yoda $14.95
as well as the VOTC han, luke and ben same price
unleashed Luke and palp $24.95
Vaders light saber $29.99 ( dad in line was buying it for his son just as we were leaving)
some OTC's finally $7 and change

AVP's predators and aliens $15.95

All I bought was a marvel legends deadpool that I might keep or use as trade bait as I understand he is a difficult find. I have also got to say that the toy department is looking as if they care about it again, its nice to be able to find things where they belong...

FINALLY GOT MY VADER! First off hats off to TRU at Steeles and Yonge for knowing how to market SW to coincide with theDVD release. They had the most OTC stuff I have seen about 4 full pegs of VOTC lots of SW wave and Yoda's tons of regular OTC basics located on the island display. Then on the regular shelf lots of Vaders, Landos and 3PO's (3 or 4 of each) and even more basic figures. Lots of stock as well on 12 inch vehicals etc.... Then went to TRU at Markville and had a interesting find OTC basics figures all on U.S cards and tons of them!! looks like they had the first 11 figures plus the later Bossk wave, also lots of VOTC SW wave and more Vaders Landos C3PO's..Happy Hunting!!

Us troopers should meet there (TRU Hilda) sometime...My friend/co-worker lives in the building just south of there, so it could be a route I can take after work.  I may go there tomorrow...And then a trip to Markville TRU may come in handy since I'm the Markham guy.
Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: Johnny B. on September 29, 2004, 08:56:02 PM
Thanks for the tip Muskrat but when I got there after work, all they had were VOTC Lukes, Hans, Obi-Wans, and Yodas...No Landos or C3P0s in sight...There are still a few starburst Bespin Leias, Tatooine Obi-Wans, Cloud Car Pilots, Tatooine C3P0s, and ANH R2-D2s.

Post by: Muskrat Of Mayhem on September 29, 2004, 09:54:28 PM
Wow SaMmiLoVer thats unbelievable!, I was at the Steels/Yonge TRU around 1:30pm on Tuesday and they had about 3 Vaders and 4 each of C3PO and Lando. Did you check the regular shelf stock thats where I found mine. In regards to Markville and U.S carded Figs I cant believe they were gone!!! they must of had about 30-35 OTC basics all on U.S cards maybe 4 of each of the Dagobah wave lots of Hans and Chewies couple of Vaders, Leias, Luke Jedi and X-wing and about 4 of each of the Bossk, IG88 and Bespin Luke wave even had a couple of Tie Pilots. The really sad thing is I have just started collectiing the starburst figs and I need basically everything 20 and up so at first glance I was excited to see the Bossk wave and the Tie Pilot, I was actually kinda bummed when I realized they were all U.S cards. In regards to VOTC they had 3 Vaders 2 Landos and 2 3PO's ........ Sorry if you wasted a trip, Makes you wonder who is snapping these things up so quickly?
Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: Johnny B. on September 29, 2004, 10:25:29 PM
Nah, it's cool...Markham's my territory and Markville's not too far from home.  Yeah...I wonder who's grabbing these off the shelves so fast.  I normally know where they keep these figs and I'm sure that what you describe as being there yesterday are all gone...Until next time...They'll bring out more...

I hope markdelete sees this message and doesn't waste a trip to the Hilda Ave TRU on Friday.  But you never know...They may restock on Friday.
Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: Dark Jedi on September 29, 2004, 11:55:25 PM
Um...I was at Markville TRU this morning.  The only VOTC i bought was Vader though and there was still one more left along with Lando, C3PO, etc. but there were less than 2 dozen OTC US carded figures when I got there.  I picked up a clean R2D2, Tie Pilot, Boskk, IG-88, Bespin Luke and a starburst Vader.  They did have a US carded Vader but I bought the starburst one for an opener and left the US card for another collector.  On the positive side, if they see their Star Wars OTC display was blown out so quickly, they'll likely restock it shortly.

I was down in the States over the weekend (Boston area) where I hit a few stores.  KB Toys was disappointing...a few VOTC figures but at $12.99 US.  The 12" Gamorrean Guard was on sale for 19.99, and a few assorted older figures for $2.99.  I left empty handed.

Next was TRU when I saw the Endor Ambush pack for $20 but since I have all these figures already I passed.  They had a few VOTC at $9.99, but nothing new.

WalMart was worse...lots of older figures at $4.99 but nothing new.

Target fared the best...picked up a VOTC Lando for $9.99
and two Unleashed (Bossk and Aayla) for $20 each - which actually isn't any deal since TRU here is $24.95 CDN I think.
At least the tax there was only 5% so I probably came out even.  I also saw a LOTR deluxe set there for $50 which I had already bought earlier at Silver Snail for $85 CDN - Damn!  I could have saved $20.

I had another trip into the US yesterday, found a Target near Toledo that had all their Star wars stuff on sale.  I picked up a Falcon for $42.99 (about $56 CDN).  They also had all the OTC figures for $3.88 but not much left - Lobot, Luke, Han, Holo Ben so I left those.  Only a few VOTC left at $9.99 - ones I already had.  No sign of the ROTJ wave.

I was in TRU in Mississauga (Hurontario) today...looks like they got a fair bit of new VOTC (lots of Luke, Han and Ben only), and also OTC on US picture cards (Luke Bespin, TC-88, Bossk, Tie Fighter Pilot, R2-D2, Luke Dagobah, etc.  Also all the new Unleashed wave.

Entertainment Earth has started to ship out OTC Vintage Wave 3 and the Post OTC Basic Figures Wave 2.
Here is the case breakdown for the latter:
2x Rabé, 3x Padmé - Ceremonial Dress, 2x Pablo-Jill - Geonosis Arena, 2x Yarua - Coruscant Senate, 3x Sly Moore - Coruscant Senate.
For those in Ottawa, Ontario, The Comic Book Shoppe  (on Clyde Ave) received 4 cases of the Post OTC yesterday, and will received an additional case next week. I'm not sure what's left on the pegs.

TRU Hilda Avenue (Yonge and Steeles) in Toronto, has the Unleashed Bossk, Aayla, and Tusken.  New American carded OTC Bossk, IG-88, Dag Yoda, Dag R2, Dag Luke, standard R2 and the rest with starburst style.  Lots of Unleashed Obi-Wans, Leias, and Chewies.  A few 12" Lukes and Stormies.  The rest of the lot is the usual stuff of X's and Tie's, Carkoon and Jedi packs, Councils, and so on.  New also is the Endor pack with Ewoks, speeder bike with Scout, Han with trenchcoat, and Rebel Soldier...Nothing special with that, 'coz I have them from the POTF2 line.

Hillcrest Mall (Yonge and Carrville) in Richmond Hill, ON: Zellers has lots of OTC lightsabers for around the $19 - $20 mark...I passed 'coz the packaging is Canadian without the picture on the front...Box looks bland and I don't think I really need another couple of 'kiddy' lightsabers when I can save some cash for the Master Replicas FX or so.  Also a few OTC figs (such as IG-88) and a few Saga figs (such as female Tusken and child) for $7.83 each.  The General Store in the Mall does NOT have the Star Wars toy section anymore...I guess the guy that owned that section moved on.

Special note:  Zellers at Centerpoint Mall at Yonge and Steeles does NOT have any lightsabers at all...I have asked an associate there and she stated that they do not have any at the sale price, or for that matter, at any price.

Brantford Wal-Mart has had the first OTC Dagobah wave + rehash Han etc... for a while now. They also have a shelf full of the new rehash three packs. I picked up an empire pack cause I didn't have those figures loose. By the looks of it these will eventually end up on clearence. Which is good becuase the ROTJ pack has an army builder and all the other packs have great customizing potential. If they do go on clearence I'm going to do a cuztimizing project to make super-articulated versions of these figures.

I found an OTC Monopoly game at Walmart in North Bay, Ontario today. I didn't check the price but there are 8 new pewter figurines that come with it. As for figures there's still a full end cap of the DVD 3-packs and 2 pegs overflowing with Han's, Dagobah and X-wing Lukes along with some 3PO's and Yoda's as well as a few Saga Dengars still.

On a side note my friend in the US received our Holo Emperor figures today and 3 of the 10 were badly damged even after being bubble wrapped with a star case. Fedex was pretty rough with the box.

I couldnt agree more........There are over 60 TRU's in Canada..when you find something new (especially new VOTC!!) please please please dont just say "I was at my local Walmart today" or "my TRU has" cause guess what, I have no idea where that is!!! whenever I report a find I give the store, the location (ie street, mall) and the city. Every post on this page by OMB and samilover are perfect...not to be ungreatful for all those that report...but it is a little frustrating.... :-[

I picked up three new "preview" figures from Toy Addict yesterday (he was sold out of Pablo-Jill and Yarua), but I saw all 5 of them today at Silver Snail downtown Toronto but at $13.99 each!!!  That's over $16 with tax.  All their other OTC figures, and they have a lot of them like Gamorrean Guard etc, are only $10.99.  I held off at that price, and hopefully will find some at the Toy Show on Sunday.
I also stopped in at TRU in Sherway Gardens today but nothing left in VOTC and only a couple of OTC Lukes on the pegs...everything else was even older!

This is pissing me off..from paycheck to paycheck..i go out looking for this VOTC/OTC stuff and it gets completely raped from the pegs..i even have all week to go searching and yet..its always gone..i got all of the ANH wave and just yoda in the ESB wave of the VOTC..and now the final weave is showing up...i think i will have to order a case of these soon..really s**tty distributing and lack of store selection in Canada..man it sucks to live here sometimes.

Toronto East End:

Walmart Moringside: Crap-about 5 Saga figures, no OTC in sight
Walmart Pickering: Few OTC starburst (Greedo, Dagobah Wave, Han. I grabbed a Tie Pilot)
Walmart Ajax: About 12 OTC starburst (Vader,C3PO few others, and about 7 Dagobah Lukes! go figure)

Zellers Ajax: Crap: One VOTC Han (there for 2 months), Old Saga figs, and a ton of Lightsabers

Zellers side note: they had and entire end aisle Jammed!! with the McFarlane Yellow Submarine Re-release figures must have been about 50 figures and about 20 Ozzy figs....Oh yeah all kids are just dying to play with Ringo and the Blue Meanie!!! but Star Wars wont sell....Idiots!!!!....Ok Rant over lets move on...

TRU Pickering: Endor Ambush packs, same 12 inch, vehicals, blah, blah, blah and a couple US carded Bossk wave

So all in all a big waste of time in the East.....
Been very dry since my big score over 2 weeks ago...hope something changes soon...at least there is some good news from Hamiltion :-*

I guess alot of stores like TRU learned a lesson with TPM and AOTC when they ordered tons of it...and then it sat around on clearance after..this new line is more attractive and in higher demand..guess they order less of it since they have old figures still on the pegs...its really stupid..and yea i checked most TRU in the East..as i live in s**tty Scarlem (Scarborough) mostly the same crap when i go looking around..and with TRU they never know if they are getting more VOTC figures..seems like they only get one case of the ESB wave and someone buys all the figures in that case..adn therefore when i get there i cannot determine if they had them...and when and so on...the empolyee's have no clue what the differences are really.i just have not been "lucky" at all these few weeks..and i will be ordering all of the ESB and ROTJ wave soon if this goes into early december.

I found and picked up 2 Bespin Lukes, 2 Bossk, 2 IG-88 and a Tie Pilot at Walmart in North Bay, Ontario today. There was also a Jedi Luke, Dagobah R2 and Dagobah Yoda that were not there before so I assume they came in the same case. The other 2 figures were probably an X-wing Luke and Dagobah Luke.
I also checked on the price of that OTC Monopoly and it is $39.99 at Walmart.

It's a Canadian collectors tradition.  Watch product come to market in the U.S. way before you ever see it in stores and when you do finally find some, it is in short supply until there is more product you are watching come to market in the U.S. wishing you could get it now instead of waiting.  

Special bonus for Canadian collectors: aesthetically inferior packaging! :-*

well went semi hunting for some of the new votc today in toronto without any luck. Semi as in i didn't try to hard and i am kind of mad that when i went looking in the past i wouldn't end up with anything.  

TRU Yonge/eg....i each of the new hope votc....nothing else. bunch of new unleashed tusken wave and some chewie wave....and leia wave. there was a 12" stormtrooper but it looked returned and opened....


walmart-eg/warden...new otc wave with ig88,Dagobah,clean r2 and a few others all starburst....i decided to pick up the one tie pilot i saw.  

zellers eg-v.p. well what can i say...nothing much here...saw some dag lukes, and a han otc woohoo! on a side not i actually saw 2 marvel legends 6th series....too bad they were only a cable and a wolvie....guess i was too late.  

after that i gave up...was looking forward to picking up some of votc but now i'm even more disappointed....i think i'll be lucky to pick up any of the new votc....man i was lucky enough to find one 12" stormtrooper....but i guess there isn't any hope now for a 12"boba.....
anyways happy hunting!

No sign of Lando and C 3PO at eaither the Pickering or Whitby TRU's Lot's of the first wave though. Not much OTC either, a few of the brown coat Han wave from Saga and tonnes of the endor four pack re hash. I bet these packs will be discouted in about 2010.

I snagged the Last BOBA FETT VOTC today at TRU on Yonge/Steels. (Hilda Ave.)  I think there is still a Yoda Votc sitting there which has been there for weeks. They dont have much left for the new Unleashed figures, tons of ObiWan Unleashed though.
Nothing new in the way of OTC figures, & the last of the Saga line is almost gone too.
i cant believe someone left a VOTC Boba in plain sight. though i am very happy someone did for my taking. would have loved to snag 1 or 2 VOTC Stormtroopers. Still hunting for VOTC Lando & C3PO.

Found lando and 3P0(also had two vaders, leia's and yoda's these too) at superstore today. Picked up lando and left 3P0. IMO goldenrod has to be the worst figure I'v ever seen!  :-\

oh and they also had a good selection of the animatied clone wars figures for $9 bucks. Picked up a clone since it was the last one and I am going back to get durge, mace and assaj.

Pretty good hunt today, but like the rest of you, I'm dying to get my hands on the ROTJ wave of VOTC.  ::)

Not sure mark...Unfortunately I'm not there everyday...Although, I did snag the last VOTC Lando at TRU Markville today...I thought that they had sh*t until I noticed the 'island' display in the middle of the walk aisleway...The usual Aayla, Bossk Unleashed wave, the ANH and Vader/Yoda VOTC line, and some OTC including US Snowtrooper and AT-ST Han, and starburst Darth Vader.

Toy show in Toronto had a few pieces of the ROTJ VOTC figures at 425, but all sold out early.  New OTC transition figures were going for $14.99 and the 3 pce Cantina Bar sets - both versions were $60 each.

Another Vendor had big range of OTC figures sealed in hard plastic cases - "factory fresh, untouched by human hands" for $60 a pop!

My only purchase was a vintage two-pack, but it was still fun to see all the vendors, chat things up.

The Brand new WalMart in Milton (James Snow and Steeles) had two pegs fills with new OTC starburst backs -
IG-88, Bossk, Tie Fighter Pilot, R2-D2 and Dagobah Luke, etc and also quite a few of the DVD 3-packs.

Hi Guys,
I am new to posting but visit the site all the time and thought  should give some input.

Went to the ToysRus at Steeles and Sheppard last night and they had VOTC Lando x 1, VOTC R2 x 1, and a ton of VOTC Lukes, Hans, Leia's and Obi-wan's. Not much going with OTC line there. They had a few starbursts - Bespin Leia and Lobot and I saw a U.S. picture card Vader, Snowtrooper and Jawa pack.

That was about it. Hoped for a Fett but thats life!

Cambridge Ontario - Zellers on Hwy 24 had new ROTJ wave of YOTC, along with several pegs full of newer OTC figures with U.S. picture backs...Greedo, Cloud Car Pilot, Bespin Leia, and many others.

I left one of each of VOTC Boba, Lando, Vader, and stormtrooper for the next guy.  Glad I didn't pay $25 each at the toy show last sunday!

WalMart on the same street had only 2 pegs of newer OTC figures including IG-88, all on Starburst cards...and quite a few of the DVD #-packs still on the shelf.

Walmart North Bay put out more new OTC today including a couple Snowtroopers, Jawa's, Tuskens as well a a Boba, Ben and Leia #9. With the exception of #17-20 I have seen every OTC figure at this store up to #28. I picked up the Boba for a friend and grabbed the Leia as I know she's HTF. If anyone needs her LMK. She was only one per case in the first assortment and this is the first time I've seen her in a new asst.

Found US OTC (Wicket, Old Ben, Ben Spirit, Luke Dagoba, Yoda, R2 Dagoba, R2 a new hope, C3P0, Leia Bespin, Lobot, Cloud Car Pilot) at Guelph Line, Burlington. Zellers. Nothing at Applyby line Burlington. or 3rd Line Oakville Zellers. Still haven't found any ROTJ VOTC at Zellers. Except one Stormtrooper at Zellers in Cambridge. Thanks for that Old Man Ben. Hope I find the others. C3P0, BOBA, CHEWIE & R2.

Hmmm, you say Zellers stores in Ontario now have the new ROTJ VOTC. Nice, that means that they're going to show up at my Zellers in B.C. soon too, can't wait & gonna be checking everyday since it's on the way to my school.

TRU in Toronto on Hilda Ave (yonge/steeles) i got 4 outa 6 new OTC figures. Bib Fortuna, General Lando, Gamorian Guard, Crix Madine.

i left Hoth Vader & ATST Han Solo because they are super stupid figures. (the vader barely has white paint sprinkled on him. the han is just truly a stupid idea for a figure.) i couldnt justify bothering to buy them even for the fact of having a complete non duplicate set. THE HOTH VADER IS JUST TOO DUMB. ive got the original Dagobah Vader from the POTJ series & the re-issued re-paint from the Jedi DVD pack. its the same figure as the Jedi pack with sprinkled white paint. i just cant get over how utterly stupid it looks.

OH ALL THE FIGURES ARE ON US PICTURE CARDS. the new stuff seems to have ditched the starburst. A mother load of VOTC New Hope figures are sitting there for the taking. all 4 peoples. go nuts people.

yeah sammi, i was there like 230 or so. cant beleive anyone even a sevre completist would  touch that Hoth Vader. its so beyond stupid.
stromtripper, the ATST Han is tempting just cause its a new figure. though i think its the old ATST figure mold. The Hoth Vader is just too freaking stupid. but your right i would maybe sang it for a feww bucks

I bought my Vader fx lightsaber at Plant x near st.clair and Victoria Park..paid $258 i think total..yea its expensive to buy from comic/colectible stores..but, its not very much over what i would pay online..plus shipping and all..as my next saber i will buy from Master replicas..they have the Mace windu saber for $99 US but, i do not like it and so i will be getting the ESB luke saber for $119 US it will be a little cheaper then what i payed for one of these locally...i think.

hit superstore today, buying some tortalinni for dinner, a pumpkin (they were sold out, on halloween, go figure) and halloween candy for the trick or treaters.
Had a look at the star wars section, it was looking pretty good. I got a VOTC lando, there were many jawa, tusken and snowtroopers, a few lukes, r2's and yodas and a nice assortment of cw annimated figures, no clone, mace or durge.  I bought the a mace last week and saw a durge but had one already. I want a clone, hope they restock.

Shot across the border (Buffalo Area) today here is what I found:

VOTC: were EVERYWHERE Target seemed to lead the pack, one Target I went had all except no Chewie......The only one I need of course ;) but lots and lots of the ESB wave all well as ROTJ. Still after 4 Targets, 3 K-marts, 3 Walmarts, 2 TRU and 2 KB I couldnt find a Chewie!!....Is he like Luke was of the ANH wave??? Saw every other VOTC but him..im talking like 20 Boba's....yet no Chewie....sad..

OTC Basic: The last 10 were pretty abundant minus scanning crew tech......Again the only one I need ;) but they were lots of the others around to be had.

Vehicals: Like here, all were there and pretty available, TRU did have the Y-Wing...I dunno it looked kinda bad so I passed......


Cantina Sets: Were really warming the pegs at all the K-Marts.....picked up both sets at 10% off, the packaging is great.... the figures.....could have been better..some of the paints jobs just dont look right....

MISC: The Vader Helmets were around at the TRU's...My big score was finding the original Playschool Stuff at KB, I picked up the X-Wing, The Endor set and the Hoth set for my Son...the best part all were 25% off....

All and all not a bad day I went 2 for 5 on my list...I got the Cantina Sets...but no VOTC Chewie, No Scanning Tech #38 and No Silver Vader......

Not necessarily...I live in Markham, which is north of Scarborough and as reported last week on my day off, no new VOTC in sight or anything like the Scanning Tech or the Slave Leia.  It's places like Hamilton or Oakville to the west or Pickering, Oshawa, and Whitby to the east that seem to be getting the goodies so far.  I guess it's the patience game that's in play for the rest of us!

TRU in Vaughan, ON (Weston Rd. and Highway 7) has lots of OTC starburst and US carded Slave Leias, ANH Vaders, ESB Vaders, Cloud Car Pilots, Gamorrean Guards, Bib Fortunas, General Madines, etc.  There was only one VOTC ROTJ Stormtrooper, which I bought and one OTC starburst Fett which I also bought.  The rest were the ANH wave and the odd ESB Yoda.  No sign of any Silver Vaders or OTC Scanning Techs.

I found all the VOTC ESB and ROTJ figures (one of each) minus 3PO, Yoda and Boba at Zellers in North Bay, ON last night. A friend of mine also told me that Winners had some OTC figures (Han, Chewy, etc). Haven't had a chance to check them out yet but it may be worth checking your Winners stores if your in the neighbourhood.
Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: markdelete on November 27, 2004, 03:14:32 AM
a bunch of US carded figures at Hilda/Steeles TRU in Toronto.
saw some Jawas & Tusken Raiders & Slave Leia. The downside for Carded Collectors, its all tossed in a dump bin & while trying to get the to depths of the bin I made no effort to be careful while digging. SORRY.
no new VOTC. still enough ANH VOTC figures for at least 3 full sets to be made. so anyone still complaining about not getting a VOTC Leia or Luke or Han or Ben shut up & get over to TRU on Hilda/Steeles or bother some of us guys in the area. i know i will gladly help out.
other than finding a Scanning Tropper a few weeks ago, i havent had any luck with anything. Pretty much lost all hope for finishing a VOTC Collection. Missing Lando, 3PO, Chewie, R2, & Stromtrooper.

hey, VOTC lando, R2 and Chewie...I found at Bridlewood Zellers yesterday.

I'm going back to zellers to return my VOTC Lando and Vader if anyone wants it.   (saving of $5.00/fig)

Snagged a VOTC Lando & Yonge/Eglinton TRU.
They have 2 VOTC Vader & 2 VOTC Yoda left hanging on the peg. get them now while they are under 10 bucks.
also lots of the newer OTC figures in dump bins, which once again is ravaged. None of the figures would ever pass as MINT ON CARD. no sign of scanning trooper.

Zellers at Bridlewood Mall at Warden and Finch in Scarborough, ON still has a VOTC Stormtrooper, 2 VOTC R2's, and a few VOTC Landos as reported by Darth Wolf before.  I got the VOTC Chewie.  Quite a few figs at TRU Victoria Park and Lawrence.  I was surprised at TRU Markville at Highway 7 and McCowan.  I guess a new shipment came in...Lots of silver Vaders, OTC Gamorrean Guards, Bib Fortunas, Slave Girl Leias, etc.  I think there were 2 VOTC Vaders and 1 Yoda...I grabbed the only VOTC Fett and the only OTC Scanning Trooper...Woohoo!

Was at the new Vaughan Mills mall on the weekend in Vaughan, ON at Rutherford and Jane...There's this children's toy store in there (Forgot what it's called but you can't miss it) that had some older SAGA and some OTC figures for $9.99 each.  There were also Galactic Heroes for the same price.  Noticed a 2-pack Stormtrooper but wasn't interested.  There's also a few SAGA figures at the WINNERS in the mall for $4.99 each.  I got the Anakin Secret Ceremony and the Carkoon Boba Fett.  Last I saw, there was still one Mace Windu and 2 ATOC Flying R2-D2.

Post by: Boyan on November 29, 2004, 06:35:05 PM
You can price match your VOTC figures from Zellers with the TRU flyer for 9.99$, and you can keep on reusing the flyer  forever I'm pretty sure, since they don't pay any attention to the date that's on it. If you try and point on the basic figures that are 7.99$ that might work too if you're really lucky, they really don't care there, as long you  have some flyer with the different price on it and it says Star Wars figures on it, try it it's worth a try :-*
Title: Re:Post OTC finds here!
Post by: markdelete on November 30, 2004, 07:09:54 PM
Lots of  Empire VOTC at TRU Hilda Ave/Steeles.
I got the last 3PO, there is at least 2 Lando's left & a bunch of Vader's & Yoda's. Still lots of ANH VOTC left as well. ONE VOTC BOBA FETT LEFT!!! go get him now if you can. no sign of the other Jedi VOTC.

Found the last wave of 2004 OTC figures today at Walmart in North Bay, Ontario. It appears as though they got 3 cases. I picked up a few for a friend along with 2 extra Scanning Crew figures. If anyone needs these or anything else from this asst PLMK. I'll pick em up for you for cost plus shipping.

Seems like lots and lots of OTC at Walmart Concord, ON (Highway 7 and Jane).  Lots of Gam Guards, Slave Leias, IG-88s, Snowtroopers, and Scout Troopers, to name a few; all on Canadian 'starburst' cards.  I think got the last Scanning Trooper.  If anyone local would like to have it, please PM me.  We can arrange a trade or something.

Last night Zellers at Hillcrest had VOTCs 1 boba, a couple vaders, landos and yodas. That was it. I left them all there, so grab em if you want em.

Hey Sammilover, sounds like we frequent the same stores! At least the TRU and walmart in Vaughan. When you first posted about the scanning crew guy at walmart, I went over a few days later and there were 2 left. I grabbed one and left the other. That must be the one you picked up the other day. :) Meant to post about it but was lazy! I was amazed that they hung around so long!! Now I need to get a US scanning crew to keep carded...

Yeah...The north end is where I am...I work in Concord/Vaughan and I live in Markham.  So anywhere in between: Concord Walmart, Hillcrest Zellers, Hilda TRU, Markville Walmart and TRU...I'm usually at either one of these locations at least once a week.  We may have run into one another at one time or another and not known it!  But if you see a black Si Civic with 'snowtroopers' decals on it, then I'm in that particular store!   ;)

Still quite a few OTC C-3PO and Darth Vader figure cases at the Walmart in Square One (Mississauga, ON).  They go for around the $29-30 range.  I would've got one of the Vaders but all of them are scuffed up and really dirty.  Must've been there for quite some time.  Both C-3PO and Darth Vader versions come with a Chewbacca and Han Solo figure.  It's funny that the Walmart at Square One is the only place I have seen these figure cases.

Hey SaMmiLoVer, none of these cases have made it out west to Alberta.

I'll keep it in mind because Mississauga is still a distance away from where I live in Markham.  I probably just go there twice or three times per year.  Hopefully other GTA folks see this post as well.

Markdelete, I noticed a few VOTC Boba Fetts, a few Yodas, and a Lando at the Zellers on Hurontario (north) in Mississauga/Brampton.  But I AM STILL MISSING A C-3PO!!!  I know what you mean...Not too many left.  I think it was b.s. to release so many ANH VOTCs as opposed to the ESB or ROTJ waves.

For anyone who didnt pick these up, they can now be found for the extra low price of $2.  Found all 4, the Republic Gunship, AT-AT, Falcon, and Droid Army Tank, here in Regina tonight.  

I thought they were knda cool at first, but at $10 a shot, it was way too much.  Then at $4 they were a good price, just didnt get them, but for $2 you really cant go wrong.  Maybe I will have to make an army out of mini Republic Gunships.   ;D

Brantford Walmart still has some OTC peg warmers rotting on the pegs. They even have a bespin Luke thats had its weather vain stolen, and saga gold dard General Dondonna. I by passed on star wars and headed to the clearence aisle, and found some minimates marked down to $2.00 each. They only had two differen't sets, but I bought all 5 packs that they had left for customizing. I also picked up a sweet urban citizen 10inch figure of the Ecko rhino, its straight up pimping  8), marked down to $10.00 of course.

Anyone see any POTC Myo or Sandtrooper recently??? I could trade with someone looking for a ROTS Clone Pilot or Clone Commander.

I might be able to find a Myo and maybe consider trading my extra otc sandtrooper.  Its hard to say on the sandtrooper.

Saw some OTC 12" Windus for $9.95 at Coquitlam (BC) TRU and some 3P0 battle droid deluxe at Metrotown.  Battered boxes but still ok.

That would be really cool. Email me if you have any luck on the Myo and if your willing to part with a Sandtrooper. Thanks.

Ok someone else hooked me up with the Myo. Now all I need is the Sandtrooper. I am also looking for the #10 US OTC Vader. I can trade the CAN version with anyone. Also have the CAN OTC Stormtrooper.

TOYS TOYS TOYS in Hillcrest Mall (Yonge and Carrville) in Richmond Hill has the VOTC 12" Stormtrooper on sale for $19.99...The 12" Fett and Luke are $29.99 each.  I asked the guy in the store about the price difference and he stated that there were more Stormtroopers to a case than the other two.  I walked out with a Fett, 'coz I needed one loose.

The toysRus.ca website has one OTC vader figure for sale, ealry today it had two OTC Vaders, one from new hope and one just OTC. I just checked and now only the OTC Vader is available.  Better be quick if you want one.

Did you try to buy it? Sometimes even though they show an item, if you try to add it to a basket, it comes up with a "this item is currently sold out, try your local store....."

Post by: Darth Odious on May 28, 2005, 11:27:21 AM
Well I was only able to buy the OTC A New Hope Vader figure and the order has been processed and set to ship, Ill probably get it sometime next week.  I also bought the OTC in the special plastic case but a few hours later TRU sent me an email saying they were out of the product and would only ship the New Hope Vader.

Those are discontinued now by the way.  I noticed the SKU on the computer is marked Discontinued so unless they do another repack in ROTS packaging they might not be around for a while.

Has anyone seen the OTC multi-figure packs Endor Ambush OR Naboo Final Conflict? Did they ever come to Canada? Does anybody have info on them?

Much Appreciated!

Thanks!

The Naboo set did not come to Canada. It is fairly reasonably priced on ebay (at least it was when I got mine).

The Endor set I believe DID come up here in limited numbers - but there were no  "new" figures therein.

Oh, I sarcastically ""'d the new because in most of these sets the new figures are actually just old POTF2 figure parts rearranged to make what appears to be a crappy new figure. Only the Naboo sets and the original Imperials on Hoth set were even close to the money in my opinion.

Both sets did indeed come out here. I saw both the Naboo and the Endor sets at my local TRU. Passed on both because of the repacks.

I'm still looking for both sets my self as well.  I love these packs but I didn't get the chance to grab these two I passed up on them to buy other things now I wish I bought them.

I'm not sure since I didn't see a price sticker on it.  I think they were about $35 or so from what I remember seeing it at other TRU's.

You should try Ebay.

Dufferin Mall Walmart(Toronto) has them as well!! And I believe it was Vader and Boba Fett in the States.

 Hey  The People's Collector, these are the same cases that came out in the 80's, or the same C-3PO that came out a few years back, but this one does not talk. and they come with 2 figures!!! >:( :-X :D ;D :D :D
