Video Games / Nintendo Classic Edition
« on: September 07, 2016, 10:28:34 PM »
Anyone else see this?

www.nintendo.com/en_CA/nes-classic

I don't really play video games, but this would be a great system for me. It has most of the nintendo games I used to play with my friends, which I would love to play again on a casual basis. It seems it's already gearing up to be the scarce Christmas gift this year. At least for bigger kids like me. :) Though my 12 year old nephew seemed pretty keen on it as well. He's the one that told me about it!

Anyone know when or where it will be made available for pre-order in Canada? I haven't been able to find anything online other than "Available Nov 11".

Scout Report / Figure Skating Cairo Ren
« on: December 14, 2015, 10:41:46 PM »
Here's a new one, I hope this isn't a spoiler:

Star Wars black series 6 inches figure skating Cairo Ren:

I don't see any skates! Cheap Hasbro skimping on the accessories again!

Scout Report / Toys R Us has 30% off their action figures
« on: November 21, 2014, 02:41:15 PM »
Surprised this hasn't hit the boards yet (unless I missed it).

Just got back from my local TRU and they have 30% off all action figures, playsets and role play. They had 2 fresh cases of rebels figures, so I grabbed the 2 stormtroopers and a couple others. Man, talk about a throw back; the sale price is LESS than $5 per figure. Paint apps on these looked a lot better than the legends figures in previous packaging. The jedi Luke looks great.

They also had the Ree Yees wave, so you can grab them if you want em.

Scout Report / Hot wheels found in Canada
« on: November 04, 2014, 08:00:19 AM »
I found the new Star Wars Hot Wheels cars (well, actually just three of the Vader car) on the weekend. I passed, just not interested, even though at least they're not just recycled cars with a new Star Wars paint job. They're pretty creative. I think they were priced at roughly $6, which is ridiculous for a dinky car. I get licencing fees, and the fact they won't be able to reuse these molds for anything other than SW, but 5 times what a regular dinky car goes for?  :crazy:

Oh well, happy hunting if these are your thing. :)

Wampa Cave / Why do collectible stores do this?
« on: June 17, 2014, 10:59:20 AM »
I popped into a local collectibles/comics shop here in Vaughan. Never been there before, but I was mainly looking for a source for the upcoming Planet of the Apes figures that doesn't charge an arm and a leg. No success on that front, their prices are too high. But I digress...

As I was browsing around this huge store (and it is huge as these kind of stores go) I came across a wall of pegs stuffed with green carded holo and freeze frame SW figures and a bunch of carded Ep I figures. And EVERY SINGLE one was priced at $59.99 each!! I nearly burst out laughing at the absurdity! These are the figures collectors can barely give away. The market for these is probably in the range of $3-$5 each. so the question is why? What's the point? They just sit and collect dust.

The only theory I can think of is they are hoping for some unsuspecting parent or grandparent who knows nothing about these things to prey on. I know this works since it happened to my mom once many years ago. That store lost my business forever after that, so really they lost in the long run. But is this their reasoning? and how often does this work?

As to other reasons, they could not have nearly that much invested in them to need to recover costs. And despite the hugeness of this store, they do not need more crap to fill it out. The place is overstuffed and cramped.  I get that in a given case assortment you need to balance the costs of peg warmers with more desirable figures by marking up to some extent, but when it is a 2000% markup over the market value, it just seems really odd.

I'm really curious, why have a wall of crappy figures priced at $59.99 each? Any store owners (current or past) have any theories? I'm genuinely curious!

Anyone else excited about these figures coming soon. Love the Classic ones, which I need to track down. The figures look phenomenal. Packaging looks to be like the 6" Black series, but much nicer in my opinion. Here are a couple links:

http://www.cooltoyreview.com/photo.asp?image=http://www.collectinghq.com/im/0032487.jpg&text=

They're also doing figures for the new movie coming out. Those have been spotted in the US at TRU.

http://forum.rebelscum.com/t1100477-17/

The Classic ones are supposed to be out in July. Anyone know if TRU in Canada will be carrying them? I'm actually not interested in the new movie ones, but am very excited for the classic ones. Just trying to figure out if I can find them at TRU, or if I need to order from a comic shop.

Lego / Disney Princess Lego
« on: April 25, 2014, 12:11:37 PM »
Well, I know there are at least a couple parents on here who's kids may or may not be into Disney and/or Lego, so why not start this thread. My daughter is in full-on Disney mode now. She has been asking for a Princess Lego set for her birthday ever since she found out they existed.

Right now Toysrus.ca has the Rapunzel set on sale for $35 (regular $50). No idea why it is on sale right now, no other Disney sets are and I don't think it's in the flyer. Maybe it's online only. But 30% off a Lego set is a bargain, and just in time for my daughter's Birthday so I grabbed it.

Just wanted to share in case there's anyone else out there looking for deals on these sets. Please post here if anyone finds any other deals on these. :)

Wampa Cave / Star Wars Rebels Inquisitor Action Figure Revealed
« on: December 30, 2013, 11:02:01 PM »
So, what's everyone think?

http://starwars.com/news/star-wars-rebels-inquisitor-action-figure-reveal.html

My first impression is it looks kinda prequel-ish to me. Moreso than McQuarrie-ish, which is interesting considering the inspiration the series is supposed to have. Maybe it's the animated style, which I associate with the Clone Wars. The face doesn't look as angular as some of the CW stuff though, which is good.

Anyway, for me it will be a pass. As intrigued and hopeful as I am about Rebels, I am going to be very selective with the figures I get from this line. Guaranteed I'll pick up a couple to mess with, heck, it's Star Wars! But I don't see myself really collecting the line as much as picking one up here and there. The 5 POA that folks seem upset about don't bother me. As a toy I think it looks great. They won't fit in with my OT collection, so, as I said a pass for me in most cases, but I am curious to see some other figures. Stormtroopers might look cool.

Scout Report / Making of Return of the Jedi... The trilogy is complete!
« on: September 18, 2013, 11:07:25 PM »
Wasn't sure where to post this since we don't really have a section on reference books...

Much to my surprise, I received the "Making of Return of the Jedi" book in the mail today! I had preordered it ages ago, and it isn't supposed to be out until Oct 1st, but lo and behold it has arrived! :)

I've only skimmed it, but it look absolutely fantastic, just like the previous two volumes. Tonnes of great photos, many of which I'd never seen before, including a few from the Blu-Ray scene of Luke building his light saber, a storyboard drawing of Ackbar with a lobster bib, a stage tech in the Vader costume, a shot of the rancor battling a dragon from the Dragonslayer movie to mention a couple.

Awesome book that is a must for any Star Wars library!

Wampa Cave / Best age to be introduced to Star Wars?
« on: March 11, 2013, 09:26:33 PM »
I'm sure I've seen this discussed somewhere before, but I did a search and couldn't find this topic anywhere. Mods feel free to merge it or move it as appropriate. :)

This question has come up lately since I have a nearly 4 year old daughter. She has been intrigued by star wars and its characters since she sees them around the house all the time, but I have yet to sit her down to watch a whole movie. She's seen a few bits of ANH (mainly stuff with C-3PO and R2-D2 as she is hooked on R2-D2). I've avoided big spoilers (if a nearly 4 year old can be spoiled), and any "scary bits". But she did ask me a week or two ago to watch "all of it", even the scary bits!

So, the big question; What age is appropriate for kids to watch SW? I have two considerations regarding this.

One is, is it too scary for a 4 year old? Obviously it varies from kid to kid, but a general impression is what I'm wondering about. Any parents with experience with their kids? Now, SW came out when I was almost exactly the age my daughter is now, but I don't actually remember seeing it in the theatre. I know I did, but SW was in theatres for almost a year and had multiple rereleases before Empire came out. So my recollection of my reaction is nil! I just know I loved it. Also, by the time Empire came out, I was nearly 7 and by then I was obviously fine watching the films.

Second, is she too young to get a lot out of it? For example, I'm thinking of the whole Vader reveal in Empire. Again, she's a couple years younger than I was when Empire came out, so I don't know from experience how she might react.

Anyway, the main thing is I don't want it to be too scary and turn her off of it. If she doesn't get into SW I'm totally fine with that. She'll like what she likes and I'll be good with that (Go Tinkerbell!!), but I'd hate to turn her off of it before she even has a chance!

Thoughts?

Oh and that other question that isn't even a question; The proper order of IV, V, VI, I, II, III will be observed. I won't tarnish her experience by showing her the prequels first!

Star Wars Movies & TV shows / Star Wars: Detours
« on: August 24, 2012, 11:22:00 PM »
So, what's everyone think of this new series?

Looks pretty funny. Seems like robot chicken humour without as much of the raunch/gore etc. The little sample bits are funny, but I wonder how it will hold up in full episodes. Plus things are: It's OT era YAY!! And it looks like fun. Fun Star Wars, YAY!

Non-Star Wars Toys / Hasbro gets Star Trek Licence!
« on: February 11, 2012, 11:55:00 PM »
Bout freaking time!! This is pretty awsome. Crappy thing is it's more for me to spend money on!!  And the best part, apparently the licence spans beyond just the new movie. I have my TNG and OS crew in the diamond/DST scale but I've always wanted a 3 3/4 line that wasn't crap like the playmates stuff. Here's a link:

Non-Star Wars Toys / The Hobbit (and LOTR) toys
« on: December 20, 2011, 11:18:20 PM »
So Lego has announced they got the licence to do Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit sets. Pretty cool. (http://www.bricktuts.com/2011/12/lego-lord-of-the-rings-preliminary-pictures-of-summer-2012-sets-revealed/) I may try and pick up the fellowship in minifig form. Not sure if I will get anymore than that since space and budget are ever increasingly an issue, but it's pretty awsome to see these coming.

I also found out that "The Bridge Direct, Inc" got the master toy licence for the Hobbit. No hasbro, no mattel, no toy biz (I guess they're gone). They make justin bieber dolls.  :rollfloorlaffsmiley: I don't really want to get into another action figure line, but I was hopeful someone like hasbro would pick up the licence. I'd love a nice quality 3 3/4 Gandalf figure. I have low expectations on this one though.
