Someone on ebay has a Canadian carded "lost line" Vader up. Is this a sign these are on their way to store shelves???

I just think this means the product is already available through Specialty Hobby shops like Legends. I got my share from my dear friend Josť and all cards are indeed trilogo. :)

Same here

Picked up both target 3-packs this weekend in Syracuse, NY. As well, received my SDCC carbonite set while I was there from an eBay seller.

 Was at Birch Run Outlet Mall in Michigan this weekend and picked up the Yavin Pilot set. They also had the Ewok set but I passed. They also had a few of the 'alternate vintage' packaging line (?). I'm not sure what to call these but they had a large logo on the front. Bespin Leia and Jar Jar only.

If anyone else is making cross border runs please PM me! I'm interested in both of the TRU sets.

Also that weird alt-line is being referred to as the "Lost Line Look" I believe...LLL anyone or L3 ?

I stopped at a K-mart to look for the AT-ST and the Ewoks and AT-ST driver packs.  Only found the AT-ST, but they had some great sales.  I got a Cad Bane with speeder bike for $0.84 (Regular $16.99, but it was marked down to $1.69 and it was 50% off the lowest ticketed price!), a large LEGO TIE Fighter for $25 (regular $52.99, marked down to $50 but also 50% off), LEGO Yoda and Stormtrooper alarm clocks for $19.99 (regular $39.99 - I initially thought I would also get 50% off of that, but apparently, they are jewellery, not toys, so the additional 50% off didn't apply :crazy:).  I wish I found good deals like that at Zellers!

Hit another K-Mart today and got 2 vintage box B-wings for $8 each, as well as some Iron Man figs for $1.60 for my nephew.  There were 2 more B-wings, and I thought about getting them in case anyone here wanted them, but the cost to ship it would have made it impractical most likely.

$8?  Jeez, anyone have an extra B-Wing they'd like to trade for my extra boxed Y-Wing?  Would love to see those being clearanced out at that price here in Ontario...

Got the 2 TRU 5pks - Ewoks and Pilots - from a buddy in the US during their BOGOHO sale - came to $30 a set!
The pilot pack is in stock on the US website still as well.

The MTT is online at sears.ca for 149.99, the same as Legends. The product page says it is in stock but if you try to order one it says they are back-ordered and won't ship till Oct 15. Currently there is free shipping and $20 off coupon code 941612075 available which end today but there probably will be similar deals available in the future.

Nice Star Wars haul for a Saturday.

Picked up Commander Wolfe (Wal-Mart) and the Darth Maul Returns battlepack and DVD (Target) in Watertown, NY today.

Also, received my "Carbon Freeze Me" from Disney as well.

curious of your thoughts on the personalized carbon freeze. Was it worth it?

A little pricy, but totally worth it!! Even my non-fan wife thought it was cool.
I really dig unique items like this, and it was a once in a lifetime opportunity.

If you're thinking about getting one at some point be advised that shipping to Canada is $75!!

Fortunately for me I have a Us mailing address and live 40 minutes from the border.

I'll post pics later in the week.

At Celebration VI my entire family did it.   At $100 per x4 and $125 shipping plus 13% HST on top of that, pricey definately is the right word.   We have got all 4 of them now and I am happy we did it.  We had fun at the show doing it and it is neat item to have.  Things to note: if you are female, you still get a male body, kids and adult are sized differently on the block.  The block is the same size, but kids figures are shorter than adults.
