Scout Report / "6-inch Value" figures at Canadian Tire
« on: October 28, 2016, 01:39:11 PM »
Saw a display full of these window-boxed figures at a Canadian Tire - 7.99. The figures are all pretty much the same height. There were 10 different figures: Vader, Jedi Luke, Han, Maul, Kanan, FO Stormtrooper, FO Snowtrooper, Rey, Kylo and Finn (Jakku). Pictures of most of these figures have been seen before. Rey and Maul are new to me.

Edit: Removed my comment about them not being 6 inches tall as they do seem to be all indeed 6 inches tall.

Wampa Cave / TRU Epic Battles Medal Promotion
« on: November 02, 2015, 08:39:05 PM »
I hadn't noticed this promotion which started Oct 24 - till I accidentally clicked on one of the Epic Battles side banners at although this promotion has been mentioned on their Facebook account.

You are presented with a SW scene and you are supposed to locate 5 objects which gives you access to a certificate which you can redeem for a medal. It seems though you don't have to really find any objects as a direct link is provided to the certificate.

On the certificate it says you have to be 18 years old to participate (I assume for legal reasons) but it also says: Parents, take your kids and this certificate to your local Toys "R" Us store to receive your ... medal.

Disclaimers include one per person, limited quantities and not available in all regions.

There are 4 medals available:

Hoth Battle - play 10/24 - 11/6 - redeem 11/7 & 11/8
Endor Battle - play 11/7 - 11/20 - redeem 11/21 & 11/22
Yavin Battle - play 11/21 - 12/4 - redeem  12/5 & 12/6
Tatooine Battle - play 12/5 - 12/12 - redeem 12/12 & 12/13.

I can't seem to find any images of these medals.

Aussi disponible en franšais:

I notice the French certificate while mentioning parents doesn't say to bring your children.

Scout Report / Superstore - 25% off Select Star Wars
« on: September 25, 2015, 08:07:56 PM »
A JTA article reported that Atlantic Superstores were having a 25% off sale on certain SW items with single TFA figures selling for 7.47 which is slightly cheaper than TRU's sale price. I checked the local Superstore flyer and it also advertised a 25% sale on select Star Wars action figures and roleplay.

The 2 Superstores I checked had a rather sparse selection of SW items. The first one had only Class I vehicles (Walker & Speeder Bike) which scanned at 20.17 which is slightly more expensive than TRU - 19.97. There were also Bladebuilders - Jedi Master Lightsaber sets which I didn't scan and that was it.

The second store had Armor figures which the JTA article indicates are on sale but since the regular price is $1 more than TRU the sale price is no better than TRU's sale price. They were also Jakks Pacific 18-20" TFA figures: Kylo Ren, Phasma, Stormtrooper and X-Wing Pilot Poe Dameron. The ad shows Jakks Phasma and Stormtrooper  and indicates 20" figures are on sale for 22.47 with a limit of 3 figures. After 3 figures the price is 29.99. At this particular Superstore the indicated shelf price was 34.99. The price scanner was broken at this Superstore so I couldn't verify the pricing.
