GTA TRU had 2 cases of vintage out at 9.99.  Also had a case of Clone Wars, the force battler Anakin and Rex, a case of new galactic heroes a whack of ships, jedi walkie talkies (that look like jedi communicators), the r/c hailfire droid, a bunch of new package sw transformers, and the galactic heroes AT-AT.    Whew, that's a lot of new stuff for one day. Non of it was there yesterday.  Will post exact location in prov. forum.

LOL, so is nobody going to stick to the imposed August street date then?  Does this mean Hasbro employees will be showing up at my local TRU and packing things up?  Confusion reigns...

The guy was putting stuff out and I asked about that.  He said they were holding stock as per the date (originally they were going to put stuff out as it came cause their aisle is so empty) but recieved word yesterday that they can put it out.  I'm assuming he meant their head honcho's spoke to Hasbro and got the go ahead.

Found Cloud Car in a Montreal TRU...34.99.  They also had intage with and Without Boba Stickers.  Best selection of Vintage figures I've seen so far.

Had a  :sign0065: moment at Wal-Mart today.  Nothing new in the main toy aisle, no surprise, so I went around to the clearance aisle just in case (sometimes they just dump new stuff there).  Was pretty perplexed when I saw 8-10 ROTS figures sitting on a shelf.  Really weird, but I figured I'd scan one and see how much they were, if they were dirt cheap I may have bought a couple.

So I scan one and it comes up as SW 3.75" VINTAGE FIG.

Really.

It's pretty obvious, when I saw the Vintage last week they all had upc stickers over the upc on the back of the card. So some scumbag bought the new figs and simply put the new stickers over the old ones and laughed all the way home!

The TRU I went to had the radio controlled Hailfire droid with figure. Hadn't seen anyone else mention these yet. They only had two and the suckers go for $69.99!

Saw the new CW at Hamilton TRU today, only Aurra was left of the new figs though, just her and a bunch of repacks.

Still no sign of Vintage here, aside from the one 4-LOM I found at Wal-Mart.

Expect that one to go up in price. I just saw it yesterday morning at Target, it was 59.99, a 10.00 markup is just not enough for TRU Canada.

Saw 2 cases of US Wave 1 Saga Legends SL1-SL12 on the new cards at a Wal-Mart. The Obi-Wan SL12 is the 1st variation - Outlander Club sculpt not 2008 TAC version.

Also saw the Speed Stars vehicles and starter sets in quadlingual packaging. These did not scan at the pricing scanners.
