Madine Wave Hits Hamilton!
« on: June 16, 2004, 02:08:24 PM »

Went into the Eastgate Wal-Mart, where they restocked the Dengar wave (no Ozzel's left), and had 2 each of Han AT-ST & Lando General, with 1 Madine, all at $8.92 and on Canadian tri-logo.  I already had one of each with 2 Madine's, so there was still one of each of the new wave left when I left.

Hamilton TRU also got the same wave.  Lots of Han and Lando, but not a Madine in sight.  They also had Lando Skiff, Luke Hoth, Hoth Soldier, 1 each of Dengar and Bossk, and a gold-card Anakin Ceremony.  Here, prices suck at $9.99.  They also restocked the Chewie Unleashed wave, with 2 of each.  No red Clones, and they've been moved to the McFarlane aisle, probably to accomodate their new figures.  I don't think they've sold a single Skirmish at Carkoon 4-pack since I reported them last week either.

Still no sign of repacks of the Ewok Ultra wave after I saw them that one time a couple of weeks ago.

Sure as soon as I stop buying due to too many bills, they bring all the figures out. Where were they months ago? :D

Also at the Mississauga, ON TRU and evidently was at the Oakville TRU but, no generals left
although, they finally managed to put out the Skirmish set.

Great news! I've been kind of poking extra-expectantly around Walmart for the last week or so hoping the Madine wave would show up. That means we've now seen 20 of 21 basics this year leading up to the OTC stuff, which should come in good numbers due to the packaging change and pending DVD release. Very nicely done, Hasbro Canada. I for one am quite impressed.

I did three stores along Hwy 7 west of Toronto today...both WalMart at Airport Road ($8.92) and TRU at Hwy 410 ($9.99) had lots of the Madine wave with at least 2 of each in most cases:  Madine, Ossel, Han ATST, Luke Hoth, Lando General, Bossk, and Dengar plus other assorted older figures.

Zellers in Georgetown had BRAND NEW Orn Fre Taa and Count Dooku with little booklets inside bubble to go with Senator Jar Jar and Taun Wee, all at regular prices $7.83.  Rush in!! These will go fast!!

These don't sound quite so exciting now do they - now that the OTC packages are appearing?

I went to the TRU in my area and came across the Madine wave as well.  I'm 99% sure the case assortment broke down like this:

2x Han AT-ST
2x Lando Death Star Attack
2x General Madine
1x Bossk
1x Dengar
1x Luke Hoth
1x Hoth Trooper
1x Admiral Ozzel
1x Lando Jabbas Sail Barge

No new basics at TRU for us yet (Nanaimo), but as I posted in the BC forum the Madine wave has shown up at our WalMart. Now on to the OTC!
