I agree with most everyone's comments here. I filled it out as well, with my choice being 3.75" if it was going to be that or 6" going forward. Lots of intriguing figures they are considering for the 6" line (General Grievous, Dengar, 4-LOM, etc.).

Also, very surprised at their focus on the props. I like them, but I'm not a big prop collector myself. That First Order Baton would be pretty amazing though! Expensive, but amazing.

Keep an eye out at your local Winners and Marshalls locations, especially now post-Christmas.

They had a wide range of Rogue One figures for $7.99, and now some are marked down to $5 at my local Marshalls (specifically the Imperial Ground Crew figure).

Winners & Marshalls also carried the 1st wave of the 'The Force Awakens' 6" Black Series: Rey & BB-8, Finn, and First Order Stormtrooper are ones I saw during the Holidays for $14.99. (I picked up a 'Rey & BB-8' 6" pack for my daughter & her dollhouse - haha - got it for 30% off the $14.99 during a special 2-day TJX Style + member sale on Dec. 22nd & 23rd, they had 30% all books, games, and toys fo rthose 2 days)

Also, Giant Tiger carried the Rogue One & The Force Awakens 5POA figures this Christmas as well.

Found Black Series wave 3 3/4 Finn and Poe, no luck finding Rey out of 3 Wal-Marts. If anyone can help, I'd like that!

I saw some at a location near me yesterday, if they are there when I go back, I'll grab one or 2, and contact you.

FYI: Depending on the date of your 6" Snowtroopers online shipping receipt or in-store purchase, you may be able to get 25% back from your original purchase by a Price Adjustment.

TRU Canada's 25% off Star Wars toys $99.99 and under ends tomorrow, Thurs Dec 3rd, if I'm not mistaken.

I pre-ordered my two 6" Black Series Snowtrooper Officers in September, BUT my online shipping receipt said order date of November 2nd. Took my receipt in yesterday and got the 25% difference + tax put back on my credit card.

Also, the Snowtroopers are in stock online again for anyone looking to army build, or who may have missed out before. I ordered two more as well, hard to beat at that price & easy access!

Happy toy hunting!

Heading to IMAX 3D here in Halifax for opening night (Thurs. Dec 17th). Bought tix to the 7pm & 10pm shows so that family & friends can go as well. CAN. NOT. WAIT!!

Tickets secured here in the Halifax area also! 7pm & 10pm shows on Thursday December 17th :-)

IMAX & reserved seating - woo!!

 :artoo:  :luke: :fight:

Does anyone happen to know when these are going to ship? Has anyone received an e-mail from re: their pre-orders? (I haven't, just as an FYI - but Americans have according to :snowtroopers:

Just pre-ordered two TFA Snowtroopers last night. Figured I'd make it easy on myself to ensure I got a couple.  :snowtroopers:

$29.99 price point is annoying...but it is a TRU exclusive, better this than trying to hunt them down like the 6" Boba Fett...

Much respect, and move love from a fellow G1 Transformers & Star Wars fan!

This past weekend (Sunday), I picked up a Bespin Luke 6" at the new Marshalls location that opened in Halifax. There was an Obi-Wan on the shelf, but I left that one.

This particular wave that includes Bespin Luke & Obi-Wan were priced at $19.99.

The had Leia, Greedo, and Han from the previous wave as well, those were priced at $14.99. I checked the other Marshalls location in the area (Dartmouth) and they only had the previous 6" wave still (Han & Leia).

Winners seems to have 6" figures, but only that same aforementioned wave. The newer wave of 6" seems to only be found at certain Marshalls stores at this time.

There's another thread here discussing a newer wave of 3.75" figures popping up at Winners if you're interested in hunting some down. (Neither of my 2 local Marshalls locations has ever carried any 3.75" to date.)

I picked up 2 Luke, and 1 Snowtrooper yesterday at a Winners here in Dartmouth, NS (Halifax). I have checked the cash area & toy section of 3 additional Winners stores in the Halifax area and there was nothing. Perhaps already purchased, or maybe those locations weren't allocated any. There is one other location to check, I'll try to do so after work today.

I hit a few Wal-Mart stores last night here in the HRM (Halifax Regional Municipality), and Leia was the only one left on the shelves from Wave 2.

Wow, what a disappointing looking figure the Princess Leia one is compared to the detail of the 6" figures Wave 1. A seemingly poor paint job, and they used cheaper looking plastic as well?

I'll have to keep my eyes open at Target & Toys R Us for Boba Fett.

Great job, Marasame! Love use of the package displays for your shelving diaplays/dioramas.

The lightsabers on the wall look really sweet!

Thanks for the info! A couple of weeks ago, the cashier at my local TRU had no idea about the 'save $5' card and I had to ask her about it, only because I had read about it in a flyer. I had no idea about this 'save 10%' flicker card. I went back this week to ask TRU for one, and it was in the same drawer as the 'save $5' cards. Amazing that the cashier wouldn't have automatically given me one of each originally.

Equally amazing is that half the time the kids who work at TRU have no idea what promotions are going on at any given time and have to resort to reading their own store's flyer to find out what they should be giving out.

DarthVader77: I couldn't agree more!!

I should have received a $5 card from my Sept. 10th purchase, but like you pointed out, they had no clue what I was talking about...but that's when they gave me the 10% off flicker card, and also like you said, both promotion cards should've been in the same drawer anyway...

I used to work retail in my high school & undergrad days, and we always had to know about the store promos, and even if there was an occassion that I didn't there was always someone working who did (or it would be listed at the cash area for us to reference). Not sure why these employees aren't up on this stuff...they are nationwide sales & promos - lol

In fact here's the full promo right excuse for those employees:
