Will now stockpile figures for the eventual front window Sarlaac Pit display here at the store.

Anyone have a POTF2 Skiff they wanna sell me?

Whether it succeeds or not I think there will be significant implications to the hobby. The hobby seems to be in a state of flux. By hasbro going this route they have acknowledged there is a diminishing collector base. But I also think they are using this to gage that collector base.

I think it's a matter of them not wanting to invest in this (or any other large vehicle) themselves simply because most collectors KNOW the larger vehicles go on deep clearance eventually, and retails complain about taking a loss on those items - so they don't want to order them anymore.

Mattel did this years ago with Castle Grayskull. It met it's goal, it was made, and I proudly have one on display at home. It was $300 U.S.

THIS, however, I don't think it's going to reach unless they allow the entire world to order it.
I have 3 customers that one, plus myself. I plan on making a huge diorama in the front window with one. Same thing when the Castle came out - but they ordered their own, because Mattel would ship worldwide.

I watched the latest video on your site.  Great spots and advertisement for the store.  I have not been in the store for long time, due to where I live, but it looks great.   :u:

You mean, since Sept 29th, 2012 when I re-opened? ;)

Hey Mike.  Saw you were on Hamilton news.  Congrats!

Thanks! Yeah, I've been on there at least half a dozen times in the last 5 years.
They're all posted here:

I watched SW, GI Joe & He-Man - haven't checked out the Barbie episode as of yet. I believe "The Mike" was interviewed for an upcoming episode so we will eagerly anticipate that!

While I know many people attached to this, and supplied a couple of figures for an upcoming Transformers one (in January, I think?), I wasn't interviewed for this. ;)

Finally I can tell you guys!
It was for the Battlefront II commercial.

My shop supplied the toys for it, and I was an advisor on some of it.



Just saw this, thanks guys!!

It's true, my landlord wants to up the rent about $800 a year, and I can get a place elsewhere for the same price, with another 500 sq. feet of space... WHY would I stay?

I get to have a lease renewal meeting in a couple of weeks... so who knows what's going to happen.

If I move, I have a place picked out, and it's also on Ottawa Street, so I won't be moving far. ;)

I've been watching its Facebook page for months now. I'd be so happy if I could easily order from him online...

I don't think that's ever coming back. Times have changed, and so have I. I personally don't have a use for an e-commerce site anymore since the store is so busy, and stock turns over quickly. However, never say never... I may re-do the site to only sell packaged items - but no vintage at all. Sorry man!

However, in the meantime, I'd suggest you guys join our social media outlets as we do update those sections:

I attend Disney World in Florida every year.

Thusfar, there have been these exclusive to the parks since the Disney takeover.

Holiday Droid 2015
Holiday Droid 2016
Halloween Droid 2016
May The 4th Be With You 2016

And a 4 pack of Rogue One droids.

The character/SW mix figures are now just PVC figures.

No exclusive vehicles right now (Except a remote control Mouse Droid!)

NONE of the above droids are left. Except maybe some of the 2016 Holiday Droids. They usually get rid of them all by the start of Feb.

Anyone know why you can't pre-order it at Best Buy?

I sell them, 10 in a bag for $6.00 Canadian.

At the last Canadian joe con I think hasbro canada bailed on them. Or they sent a rep with some stuff on display that was already out and the rep had virtually nothing insightful to say. They may as well have not been there.

Since I was the one that ran the Canadian Joe Con, I can 100% confirm that I had to argue with them to attend, but they dropped the Q&A.... however, it had nothing to do with restructuring at that time, and it was the fallout of how they were treated at another Hasbro Fan-run event.

After that, Hasbro International changed the way it interacted with ALL aspects of the fanbase, across all lines. A year or two later, they restructured internally.

I have an Obi-Wan. But he's carded... and pricey... so, you may not want him. Especially if you need it shipped! ;)

I can't take any credit for this one. I never got the login admin email, and the site just showed up working. Someone else must of fixed it this time.

2003-08-23 is what day the site says I joined... But I remember being one of the original members here... and prior - back when it was called Power of the North or something like that.

Meh. I don't know why, but the older I get, the less I care that they've been altered from the originals.... Then again, I have the originals on offical DVD release from that Walmart exclusive in 2006.

Some of the changes I actually like, (Jabba in ANH,  band sequence in Jedi, Death Star explosion). Others I don't care about... Fett having his voice replaced bugs me however.... boba became his own man, his voice could be different than all those clones.
