Online Shopping - Who's Got the Hot Items??? / Re: Amazon.ca Updates
« on: September 14, 2017, 08:21:42 AM »
The Elite Praetorian Guard is actually cheaper on amazon.ca than amazon.com after factoring in shiping and duties and taxes. I cancelled my order on amazon.com.

As for the FO Stormtrooper with Gear,  the cost is about the same on amazon.ca and amazon.com when adding duties and taxes. I ordered 2 on amazon.com and it worked out to about $115.00cdn . Amazon.ca was $113.00cdn for the 2. ( I'm in Ontario).

I was across the border yesterday (Friday), and I was lucky to find and pick-up a couple of sets of the Black Series SA 3.75 inch Last Jedi Wave Walmart Exclusives (Elite Praetorian Guard, Stormtrooper Executioner,  Luke Skywalker Jedi Master, Resistance Tech Rose). After picking up these figures, it has re-assured me that I will not be buying any of the 5POA Last Jedi figures unless they are on clearance for less the $4.00 each. 

I noticed that when I was shopping there, that the Rathtar pack is peg/shelf warming in all the stores, but the Imperial Probe Droid Pack is being bought up....I couldn't find one imperial probe droid pack there.  I did manage to pick-up this set here in Canada (even though the Darth Vader is 'garbage') because the probe droid is absolutely amazing....and is much improved over the previous POTF2 version and it's repaints. If you haven't picked-up this set yet, I would highly recommend that you pick one up for the Imperial Probe Droid.

I also saw the A-wing there and the other speeder...I forget the name of it (which I have yet to see both of these vehicles here in Canada in-store), and they seem to be heavily available in the U.S. stores as well.

Wave 1 of the Black Series 6-inch figures were also easy to find (including Hera and Thrawn), as well as the regular release of the Landspeeder and Luke, and Rey with Speeder.  (Walmart had a huge display with these 2 vehicles for $59.99U.S. each.)

I also found one...and only one.... Black Series 6-inch First Order Stormtrooper Executioner (Target Exclusive).  I finally found it after visiting 4 Target stores.  I'm sure there will be more coming as Target exclusives tend to peg warm after a while.

It's Hasbro and toys r us....so unfortunately taxes are always extra.  Even though it's all Hasbro products, it's more of a Toys r Us store as you get a Toys R Us receipt when you cash out. Even though there is about 100000 people at the show, I did not have to wait in line for the hasbrostore....I just walked in. There is a limit of 1 of each and every item.  I went in the store 3 times today...spoke with the same Hasbro folks and they didnt give me a hard time. Lots of stuff still left.

If everyone is wondering why there is no product on the shelves at Walmart or Toys R Us retail stores it's because it's all at Fan Expo.

Saw some of the stars there today....Norman Reedus, Anthony Daniels, Famke Jansen, Richard Dryfuss ( please excuse the spelling of names).

I went to Fan Expo this Thursday and Saturday, and let me tell you it made my Force Friday or Force Weekend.

I picked up the following at the Hasbrostore (had to make 2 trips back and forth from the hotel):

BS Landspeeder with Luke exclusive $139.99
BS Landspeeder with Luke regular ed $74.97 on sale
BS Rey with Speeder $74.97 on sale
BS Thrawn exclusive $69.99
BS Rey/Luke 2-pack exclusive $69.99
BS Rey, Thrawn, Luke, Hera  $29.99 each.  I didn't pick up Kylo ,  Stormtrooper or Darth Vader.

They also had all of the wave 1 3.75 5POA figures, BS Luke and Vader statue centerpiece thingies, poe Dameron electronic helmet, and the new BS Rey FX lightsaber.

They didn't seem to be running out of stock on anything and I was last there at 2pm today.

Oh...and I got a 10% off savings card good until the end of January 2018 on star wars toys at toys r us stores and online. Some exclusions apply.

I picked up a few 6inch Black Series figures for $5.00 + tax yesteady at Walmart.....as the figures were scanning for $29.92 each but the shelf tag still said $15.00....so with their $10.00 adjustment policy for the  price mismatch at the register, I got them for $5.00 each. Yay me!

Scout Report / Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
« on: August 06, 2017, 09:15:31 PM »
. I don't recall seeing anything for 6" but they're probably on the planogram next to this section which I forgot to take a look at.


I saw the planogram at my local Walmart. ...the 6inch figures are in the plan...but the space is current being occupied by the 6inch clearance figures.  There is something on the plan that l'm curious about .... an item tagged as 'SW E5 LUKE SKYW BLCK 1 each'  1 facing of 5 units. Price is $79.97. Is this a black series exclusive?..Does anyone know what this could be???..it seems to be from episode 5.

Could it be Luke's Landspeeder in 6" Black Series? 80$ seems the right price for this...

I was actually thinking that...it's an item on a bottom shelf and it takes up about 1/3 of the shelf space....the only thing that's throwing me off is the 'E5' on the shelf tag.

There are 4 new figures and 2 are repacks. They are a Disney exclusive limited to I think 1000 pieces for D23 celebration expo. No word yet if they will be released in regular Disney stores.
