Wampa Cave / Road Trip To Florida = Star Wars
« on: March 21, 2005, 01:46:14 AM »
Just got back from a two week round trip road trip to florida down the I-75.
Managed to find some star war deals and was able to get some star war ROTS figures that I do not believe in Canada yet.  When some of you guys head down for celebration you may be able to take advantage of some of the clearance of star war items.

Deals:
KMART: Scene 1 & Scene 2 Cantina Bar scenes $10 ea. Millenium Falcon $30
Lord of the Rings Risk game $16
Target: Light sabers $4.88, Rabe and the other four figures that were released here in Canada were at $3.88 Electronic Lighter sabers with sound and Lights were $9.99
Walmart: Lego X-wing $13, Millenium Falcon $15, VOTC $2, Exclusive Walmart figure sets $5 , Lego Rebel Snow Fighters $11, Star Wars Monopoly $10

Prices vary from store to store and item available at clearance section vary. ie Star Wars Monopoly sold at full price at one Walmart and $10 at the next.   The deepest discounts were found in the southern states.  

The 3 new cantina figures are available at Walmart for $5.88 and Toys R US for $6.99.  By Celebration they maybe discounting these figures.

ROTS finds: Both Kmart and Walmart were making the mistake of putting them out before the April 2nd date.  At Kmart when I took the figures up they would not scan-the check out person checked with customer service and they came back saying they could not sell them to me until April 2nd.  I went to Walmart -they had them out again -fortunately I also took one of the sneak preview figures up at the same time.  The check out person could not scan the new ROTS so she used the preview figure and scan it 10 times - $5.24 a figure.
They had different figures at Walmart and Kmart.  kMart had the deluxe star war figures and non-warrior figures, Walmart had more of the warrior figures.
I only collect figures related to the original 3 movies so I got the new chewbacca, the new wookie with cross bow, darth vader, yoda, droids R2 and also got battle droid-saw many others - they all look good.

The only thing I was looking for and could not find was the Mr. Potatoe head Darth Vader - I have a 2 year old son I was trying to get it for him as a birthday present.

And for anyone headed to disney world - at the MGM Star Wars ride they had out some exclusive figures and the best find for me was OTC Y-wings - as many as you wanted!! and they deliveried them to my hotel at no extra charge. They have star war weekends coming up soon and the staff were talking up a storm about how great a time it would be.

I hope on your road trip to Celebration you score some deals on star wars merchandise.

Wow, that is cool. It's good to see that they gave you that. My brother was telling me that in sales, he was taught that a happy costumer will tell a couple people, and an unhappy costumer will tell 18 people. So it's always good to deal with any problems and make the costumer happy. So Hasbro obviously wants good PR and they'll get it from this. Cheers to them!

In this case though, I am fearful that the darkside of the force is at work, a happy customer told 18 people and they in turn are going to become "unhappy customers" to see what they can get from Hasbro.  Don't give into the power of the dark side.   It may lead to a life time supply of Jar Jar binks.  Imagine no matter where you move, every month Hasbro finds you and sends you a Jar Jar Binks for the rest of your life.  (Just kidding - if you got something of Hasbro that's broke - give them a chance to make you happy-I did)

They just sent me an OTC #10 and a VOTC C3p0 in order to compensate me for missing items from my Slave 1 - I guess they must be all out of OTC stuff and have moved onto giving out ROTS stuff.

Wampa Cave / Re:Free VOTC C3P0 from Hasbro & OTC #10
« on: February 11, 2005, 04:21:09 AM »
Which of the 12 VOTC are good figures?  Comic book is a good company to purchase from. I just got (2) of the post Sandtroopers and (1) Myo to finish off the POst OTC I wanted.  If anyone is interested I think thye still have (1) Myo and (1) Dannik, they do not have the cat like bounty hunter.

Wampa Cave / Free VOTC C3P0 from Hasbro & OTC #10
« on: February 10, 2005, 10:27:26 PM »
I bought a Slave 1 that was missing the Rocket from Boba Fett and also missing 4 of the missles.  I sent a request for replacement parts to Hasbro USA. My problem was forwarded to Hasbro Canada.  I am guessing that because the Slave 1 was not a Vehicle available in Canada they did not have access to replacement parts - therefore they sent me a free Darth Vader OTC #10 for the missing rocket and then two weeks later they sent me a free VOTC C3P0 for the missing missles.  

I think the C3P0 are hard to find - is this true?  Maybe I should put it up on e-bay - I still have the Hasbro box and documentation that they sent me.  Could be worth millions$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.....or maybe $14.95 or $9.97 at Xmas.

Wampa Cave / Re:OTC Figures
« on: January 30, 2005, 10:10:26 PM »
Some of the on-line stores that sponsor stormtroopers have had them in stock.
I bought a set on ebay for $18.50 US for all 3.  I have not seen them in any of the big retailers.  Hasbro has discontinued some of new wave 12 pack boxes that include multiple of these figures.  I know this because I had one on order and it was canceled for this reason. I am new to collecting Star Wars so I don't know if this is something that  Hasbro does regularly.

OTC is what got me into star wars collecting world.  I got lucky on my purchases - when I started collecting - US cards were  all available at Toysrus. I got even more lucky when they had the sale in December. I kept all my receipt and got 39 of the 40 US cards for $7.97 cdn.. Good luck on your hunt. I think if you are new to collecting the OTC is the best way to go.  Hard to justify the purchases if you already got the figures in Saga.

Snowtrooper Recruitment / Re:Step 1 in my 10 step process.
« on: January 28, 2005, 02:15:51 PM »
They had several CP30 that were in mint condition. And there was a total of 5 Darth Vader cases.  2 of which were up high - the ones up high were in great condition.  Since you had mentioned that they had dust on them- I brought a rag to clean them off and check them out in the store.  2 of the other cases, once cleaned up only had minor marks.  The cases had been there from the middle of December. THey brought them in on a skid and placed the skid in one of the asiles.  I think all the dust must have been from the warehouse in states where they came from.   I'm guessing we got the Darth Vader cases because they had the HAn and Chewie and not Baba Fett & Stormtrooper.

Snowtrooper Recruitment / Step 1 in my 10 step process.
« on: January 27, 2005, 09:40:52 PM »
Hi I am new to snowtroopers and new to star wars collecting.  3 months ago OTC infected my blood stream and took over my body and soul.  I became concerned that I may have a problem when I heard about the problems people are having getting Scanning Troopers - I have 10.  

Thanks go out to the guy representing Markham - he mentioned that the Star War Figure cases were available at Square one in Mississauga - I had been looking for these for awhile. Hard to find in Canada. I have a question about them, if anyone knows the answer- the Darth Vader Figure cases came with a Han and Chewie figure. The Hasbro site shows them with a Boba Fett and Stormtrooper.  Is mine an early edition or just a mistake?

The second indication that I may have a problem is When I walked into the Toysrus tonight the girls in the Customer service area - said out loud "It's the Star Wars guy"  Just like at Cheers. By the way Preview figures are out in Toysrus in Ontario.
 
That's it for step 1 in my 10 step process: admiting I may have a problem.
