What's scary folks is that he's being totally serious.  :mad0218:

I submitted the question for the last Hasbro Q&A as to whether Hasbro will recall the Yarnas... but I should've added: "or, would you be willing to sell all 100,000 Yarnas left in Canada to sinkie for $0.15 each?"  :)

EDIT: without a doubt it would be a kick to see a photo of an army of her - a clone army of Yarnas! Surely enough to force the surrender of the CIS.

I'll take anyone's unwanted Yarna off them...literally take!  :winking0071:  Oh okay. I'll pay for shipping at least!

PS - I really wish you HAD asked that part of the question napseeker! I would love to get a call from my local TRU's saying Hasbro authorized them to sell me all their Yarna's for like even 50 cents each!  :party0053:

Just got back from TRU, same deal: new CW figures (Arf, Argyus, Luminara, Fisto, Thire) but no new TLC figures or anything else.  I did notice a Republic Tank at the far back of the vehicles and quickly bought it -- it was the last one so I feel quite lucky there!

The pegs are filled with Yarna, Ak-Rev, Pons Limbic, Saesee Tiin, Plo Koon, and Leerun Sub... yuck. For $7, these figures will not be going anywhere. Just mark them down to $1 and maybe they'll finally move. I know for a fact that sinkie has sworn to me he'll buy 50 Yarnas if he finds them for $1 each.  I will hold him to that promise!  Too bad he doesn't live in Toronto  :)

Yep! Hey, if you see them at a buck a piece buy me 50 (or as many as they have!) and I'll get my brother to get them from you...but $7 is still a little steep for a gag purchase!

Ummm....this is going to make you think you're reading a post from like 10+ years ago but yesterday, at a small store in a mall selling only new toys (not used or collectibles from what I could tell) I found the following:

Naboo Royal Starship MIB
2x Amidala "Barbie" style dolls
Cinema Scenes ROTJ Spirits
Ric Ollie on card
(they also had some TAC, Blue Card Legacy and a ROTS Mon Mothma!)

Obviously this is old stock they just haven't gotten rid of for over 10 years but still! The Royal Starship kind of surprised me given that at least at one time it was a pretty hard to find item. Anyone seriously interested in it PM me, might be expensive to ship however. But I doubt it will be flying off the shelf any time soon! :) It felt kind of funny to see it for sale at retail so I thought I'd post it as a curiosity since it's been a slow few months! :indifferent0020:

Last night in Repentigny, in Quebec, I found the Nikto skiff guard at Walmart. I thought the ROTJ wave wasn't coming to Canada but obviously a case made it through.  TRU's pegs are pretty skimpy though, just a couple remnants of ANH wave and of course...sigh...Clone Wars and more Clone Wars. :confused0024:

As I mentioned a few days back, I received my second Ugnaught a couple of weeks ago from Legends, so he has been and is now gone.

I'm pretty sure Hasbro said in some QnA or other that the 2nd Ugnaught would not see a Canadian or UK release. Legends often orders directly from the US which is why they can get these waves and revisions that will never come to Canada. Unless a case slips through at TRU or something, it seems it will never be released here at least under the Legacy banner.

I agree! Tom was a great communicator through the whole process. Even down to the last minute, literally! Nice meeting up with you in T.O. Worked out great for me too knowing the items were safely delivered to you in person. Would deal with Tom again in a heartbeat!

Was really nice to meet you too. Sorry I was so rushed. Could have been fun to have chatted for a little bit. Maybe next time! Enjoy!


Congratulations! As I asked in the main dio contest post, have you considered somehow putting it on display in a local comic store or something, even if only temporarily?

Congrats Richd! You deserved it for your insanely constructed and insanely temporary (maybe you could move this to a local comic/toy store for at least a few weeks display???) set up!

A big thanks from me too Sanja! I had a lot of fun doing this and as I said before I thank you too for motivating me to actually do a dio in the first place since I've tried to self-start for years and never found the time or energy. I'm looking forward to next year's contest too though I'm less inclined to support the "allow photoshop" option since photoshop, if legally acquired, can be expensive and give an unfair advantage and start to deviate, IMO, from what a true dio is all about. I think they should be presented in photos as close as they would look if you were in their physical presence. Why not experiment with light sources, etc? I found that a few of the more detailed photos I used, with backlighting behind the Emperor and his blue lightning glowed quite nicely on its own without any photoshop touching up. Helped that he was in a dark area of course, but still...

I agree though that a 5 or slightly more photo limit might be better too. It would allow one to highlight some of the more exciting details of one's work and not use 60 to 100 percent of one's photo limit on just showing the entire thing from six feet away (those 4 inch figures can start to look pretty small at that distance and any details in the environment's construction can become lost). And yeah, sure, much smaller prizes for 2nd and 3rd would be a bonus but the generosity of that first place prize is already beyond the call! :)  Now, if I decide to turn my entire house into a section of the death star and recruit my family to be living action figures, will I be allowed to use video to show it off? That's my burning question!  ???

I'm forwarding my wife this link so there will be no more complaining about my four measly ornaments! :)

Anyone know if I go pick up stuff tonight will they let me get a refund tomorrow?

Not sure, maybe the deluxe packs or evolutions too? Comic packs or the two packs (or are those Walmart exclusives). Possible, though doubtful, that they mean Legacy is excluded but not CW. They often say there is a sale on CW but all the figs ring up at the sale price.

Ah ha! So I was right ("From a certain point of view." Those of the people of Brossard that is!) ;)

Found Jedi Luke, half-Stormie Han, restraining bolt R2 at the Anjou Quebec TRU last night so I guess they had at least one case of ANH wave come where did the rest of that wave go I wonder...(I'm looking at you Jediburrick!!! ;) ).

I blame this diorama for a dream I had last night: Hasbro released a new AT-AT that came up to my hip! It was awesome and when I woke up I was so disappointed it wasn't real...yet! Good job inspiring me to dream big ;)
