Off Topic / Site like this, but for Marvel Legends?

Anyone collect Marvel Legends?
I've gotten in to them a bit more recently and I'm looking for some good collector resources. Anyone know of a site like Snowtroopers for Marvel Legends? Something Canadian-based would be my preference.


Look at the size of that thing:


"Please note we cannot ship to a PO Box and we cannot ship to Canada or any other country at this time."


I'm hoping Old Republic :fingerscrossed:

Playset is down to $91. I pulled the trigger on this one. I have a feeling it may go lower yet but I feel at this price it isn't too bad. I can see at some point, these will be blown out for like $50-60 but you never know with this kind of thing.

I told myself I'd go for it if it hit under $90. It's currently at $90.94 and I think that's close enough.
I agree that it might go lower, but, how low could it reasonably drop?

Off Topic / Where to buy Skylanders

My kids just started getting in to Skylanders.
He's got a few on his wishlist that I can't track down in town. I never paid much attention to them in the past and it seems like some characters are rarer than others.

Anyone know of any online stores that have reasonable prices & ship to Canada?

I managed to pick up Ezra's speeder for $8 and the First Order Snowspeeder for $15 as both were on "red tag" clearance pricing.
I was very happy as I specifically stopped in to Winners to see if they had those exact pieces.

Also saw the Tie Striker and U-Wing as others have mentioned. Those were not on clearance, but they had a lot ... so maybe someday soon.

I assume those sale prices will end tonight before the TLJ stuff goes on sale, too

I caved & ordered it :-)

The only place I've seen it is Toys R Us for $250.

I was kind of hoping it'd have the same fate as the 6" TIE and end up 75% off. But, I'm thinking they didn't order many and not many stores seemed to have ordered any AT-ATCs at all. The TIE was everywhere and in massive quantities. I'm thinking we might see the AT-ATC hit 50% off, but I was hoping that would be _now_. Even at 50% off, that'd still be $125 which isn't much less than Target here.

Yeah, trying to convince myself ;-)

Ugh.... I have the AT-ACT in my cart. Sooo tempted. It's still nearly $200... not sure if I can justify it.

What price do you consider regular retail?

> You might want to try The Silver Snail

Yeah, Silver Snail closed, like, last year. It wasn't any good for action figure anyway.

The Comic Book Shoppe is good. There are two locations, one downtown and one a bit south/west. That location, on Clyde, has a better selection of toys.

Word of warning, though, DarthSlaad ... it's ComicCon this weekend, so the Comic Book Shoppe's stock will be significantly reduced because they set up a big booth at the Con.

There's also Toys on Fire ( out in Barrhaven. I haven't been in years because it's too damn far to get to, but it was pretty cool when I was there last.
Oh, and same deal as CBS, they have a booth at ComicCon usually, so their stock might be down.

Heck, you should just go to ComicCon. Better shopping there than anywhere else  :)

I think my family represents a bit of a strange demographic. See, I gave my son (7yo) & daughter (11yo) about 90% of my Star Wars toy collection when they showed interest. So, both my daughter and son play with Star Wars action figures a whole lot, but I'm trying to think of which toys the specifically _asked_ for.

Both my kids ask for Pokemon stuff all the time. My daughter asks for Barbie stuff (but she's playing with toys a lot less now that she's older). Both kids ask for Lego. My son used to collect all the Paw Patrol guys and the Transformers Rescue Bots. My daughter's asked for a few Star Wars "dolls" (12") a couple of times and my son has a big list of Star Wars action figures he wants. ex. He really wants to get an Admiral Raddus figure.

But, if I just look at my son, who's still in prime-time toy-playing age, I'd say he collects Pokemon, Lego and Star Wars action figures. He divides his time evenly between Star Wars, Lego and dress-up play. He doesn't play too many video games. Maybe a couple of hours per week, tops.

I can't say whether he'd have chosen Star Wars toys on his own, but he loves the ones he's got :)
