Title: Winners
Post by: pjtrooper on December 20, 2011, 11:32:03 AM
If anybody is missing any Clone Wars figures from pretty much the last year Winners in Winnipeg has tons. I was able to pick up the two I was missing for $5.99 each which were Chewbacca and Armor Savage.

I picked up an extra Chewie today at my local Winners in Langley, BC.  They weren't with the rest of the toys, but on a shelving unit just in front of the checkouts.  There were a couple of boxes with the full wave in there; I picked out a minty-fresh one!  They are out there troopers...

Same at my Winners, they're in the "impulse buy" area around the checkouts...

dunno bout anyone else, but winners is now my favorite toy store :D they always get in the stuff no one else does, then they have it at half the price, usually :P
(the CW 2 packs there are 15$, compared to 12$ at TRU, which threw me off, but besides that...)
Title: Re: Winners
Post by: Darth Woo on December 21, 2011, 01:09:02 PM
Well, the Winners in my area has 1 of the Camie/Fixer packs for $3.  I had already gotten mine for $5 so I left this one there.
Title: Re: Winners
Post by: Darth Woo on January 19, 2012, 03:21:54 PM
So weed refunded a crapload of '$14.99' Clone Wars figures at Winners.  There were like 5 of them and one of them was a TRU Value pack (2 carded figures taped together).  I would have wanted to get that one too cause it was Boba Fett and a Mandalore warrior.

what! as in Master Replicas?

At that pice I may be wrong but i believe its probably, teh Hasbro Ultimate FX kiddie ones. While still cool, arent metal and have a blade thats about a foot too short i figure. but great for collectors on a budget
Title: Re: Winners

Title: Re: Winners
Post by: Darth Chadus on March 11, 2012, 06:16:00 PM
Yes the Hasbro Ultimate FX lightsabers,  they are really cool.  They are plastic instead of metal, however they look almost identical to the Master Replica ones, except for the slightly shorter blade.  I read somewhere that they are actually made in the same factory as the MR ones.  A friend of mine who collects both, said they are very hard to tell the difference between the 2 when they are side by side.

Battle Pack.  Usually a multi pack, or a couple of figures and a cool vehicle or accessory.  They used to be 5 figure battle packs back during the ROTS days, then 4, now it's usually 3.

Thanks, I picked up all 3 of them today. My TRU barely got any of these in due to the enormous overstock of their 1 exclusive TPM set. And these are a way better deal than the $30 TRU price. I hope wave 2 comes here, with the OT vehicles.

Winners are putting out 3.75" non-revision Wave 3 Black Series figures for 7.99. Strangely they seem to be getting in 1/3 of case per store- 4 randomly selected figures. One store had 2 of Plagueis.

Post by: Wedge1021 on July 21, 2014, 04:36:01 PM
WTF?!?!  These have barely made it to regular retail in Canada, and they are already at a discounter outlet?

Probably because both Walmart and TRU passed on the wave since they have a backlog of wave 2 (and even some wave 1 left). I have only heard sightings of wave 3 at Target and Disney Stores so far. So when not enough "regular" retailers order the product, HasCan goes to the discounters to see if they will buy up the remaining stock from their warehouse. It's been happening more often the past couple years.

WTF?!?!  These have barely made it to regular retail in Canada, and they are already at a discounter outlet?

And that's not all. Today at Winners I found part cases of revision wave 3 Mission Series figs Luke/Vader, Obi-Wan/Grievous and Han/Chewie in "Canadian" packaging for 7.99 each less than 3 weeks after these were first reported at EchoBase and here at Snowtroopers as starting to show up at Walmart.

In the revision case Han/Chewie replaces Sidious/Yoda. So far I haven't seen any Sidious/Yoda packs. All the Winners had revision case packs with a 40991 date stamp and the only case I've seen at a Walmart was also a revision case with a 41191 date stamp. Darth Paul mentioned only Vader/Luke and Obi-Wan/Grievous in his report. Has anyone seen a "Canadian" carded Sidious/Yoda?

In the long run it probably doesn't matter as Sidious/Yoda is supposed to reappear in Rebels/Saga Legends packaging.

Exactly as I predicted when they started showing up in multi-lingual packaging at specialty stores. Once we see things translated into multilingual packaging then they have to be released in decent quantities somewhere. :)

This even happened as far back as 1998. I remember several freeze frame figures showing up on trilingual cards at deep discount prices at Party Packagers (now known as Party City) that never hit regular retail.

As previously reported, wave 3 of the 6 inch line has been showing up at Winners stores...price $19.99 each.  But to add a little confusion, wave 2 of the 6 inch line is showing up there as well...price $14.99 each.  I saw two Han Solos for two different prices....obviously one from each wave. Also,  Winners only seem to have received one case of each wave.
Title: Re: Winners
Post by: Darth Woo on July 30, 2014, 12:05:03 PM
Only saw Obi-Wan and Bespin Luke for $19.99.  If I saw a $14.99 Han, I would have picked him up.  They only had Greedo's and Leias at all the TRU around me during the $14.99 sale.

Checked both Winners & Homesense X2 this afternoon - NO 3.75" wave 4. I did see the Sidious/Yoda 2 pack (wow - just wow - and I mean that in a "these wouldn't sell at the Dollar Store" way) as well as Vader & Luke Bespin. Luke Bespin I actually did like, but not enough to start a new 5POA collection (and the lower skirt on Vader is a disaster anyhow).
Title: Re: Winners

I visited two Marshall's and two Winners in my Mississauga area and saw a diversity of things, none of which I wanted.  There were four different two packs including Han/Chewie and Sidious/Yoda, all in decent shape.  There were six inch Leia, Han and Greedo all at 14.99 and one Luke Bespin at $19.99
In the smaller black series I saw Luminara, Merumeru, and a clone trooper  at $7.99.  They had several Anakin to Vader 12 inch figures at $18 and the lesser 12" Luke, Vader, Obi wan for $7.99.  Also a variety of light sabres and blasters.
I was hoping to find new stuff but someone may have beat me to it.

Title: Re: Winners
Post by: Darth Woo on August 06, 2014, 04:37:52 PM
Visited a Winners here in BC today.  Had basically what old man ben saw.  I picked up Han and Boba Fett 6" figures for $14.99 each.  They had Greedo and Leia at the same price but they had an Obi Wan that was still there from last week for $19.99.  Luke was $19.99 as well but didn't see him anymore today.

Title: Re: Winners
Post by: darthpaul on August 10, 2014, 08:14:49 PM
SO I hit 4 Winners on London today.  A few lightsabers, a total of 4 Black Series figures (not wave 4 though!! :maul:) - but if someone wants a Plagueis I know where to find one.  Glad I got a Sidious/Yoda pack in Stratford because although the 2 packs were all over the place at all 4 stores, not one of that particular pack.

No mispriced 6"ers.  Each place had Leias and Greedos. A couple had Hans and one had an Obi.

After all of that I bought a Lego Phantom with Ezra and Chopper at TRU.

In case I posted it elsewhere, check the checkout area first for 3.75" figures - they're hanging them in where folks line up to pay. I haven't ever seen any in the toy section proper.
Title: Re: Winners

The smaller figures tend to be hanging in the checkout line whereas the six inch packs are in the toy section.  Mind you each store I have been in is a little bit different and some have the 3.75 " figures hanging in the toy section and some have the six inch by the cash.  Go figure?

Both at cash area, nothing at checkout and both in toy section or split up (if they even have both) but the majority of the time the 3.75 are in the checkout aisle from my experience. Oh, and check end caps in the toy section. I found every single figure at one Winners on pegs that were on the end cap of a toy section facing the wall. Almost missed them entirely that time.

Found the Rebels Class II vehicles at a Winners: AT-DP, Phantom and Inquisitor's Tie in tri-lingual packaging for the not so great price of 29.99 each unless you missed out on the Target exclusive Phantom and Inquisitor's Tie or can't find an Inquisitor's Tie at TRU or you believe Winners' inflated retail price of 44.00. The AT-DP might be an exception as this wave seemingly never showed up at regular retail except for Disney stores.

Found more Rebels packaged Class II vehicles at a Marshalls: Boba Fett's Slave I and Obi-Wan's Eta-2 JSF in tri-lingual packaging again at the same 29.99 price. I assume case mate Anakin's Delta-7B JSF is also floating around.

Saw the Rebels packaged Anakin's Delta-7B JSF at another Marshalls. Even better at the same Marshalls I found a multi-lingual Heroes X-Wing for 49.99 which is the price sears.ca is charging and was the price TRU used to charge now reduced to 24.98. The listed compare price was 74.99.

No. Winners has bought into the hype that anything Star Wars is worth more. Thus we get stuff that is on sale for 20 at TRU for 30, and 6 inch figures for the same price as Walmart ($18 for ObiWan, 22 at Walmart).

I'm not sure how it is in your neck of the woods but the toy sections in Saskatoon and Regina are getting more and more bare. And the stuff at the line up is really terrible (Bendies. Who the hell wants bendies)
Title: Re: Winners
Post by: napseeker on July 17, 2015, 12:18:23 AM
My Winners (and TRU) are bare. Winners isn't even worth making the trip for any longer. TRU has tons of Greedos and Leias, and the "little green men" SW stuff that is moving s-l-o-w-l-y. The Torynn Farr wave 3.75" lingers around, no one buying it thanks to the huge $13.99+tax price increase mandated by Hasbro (or was it $12.99? either way, absurd)

I mean, it's been like that for so long that I don't even look at the TRU SW aisle when I go in, I just check the Transformers section and go home after that :)

I'll give credit to the Hasbro Transformers team, they are killing it this year (Stunticons, Aerialbots, a "BMF" Devastator, G1 homage Megatron, Combaticons, Protectobots, etc) I've never spent so much on TF ever, and been happy to shell out the cash for the nostalgia high.  This, Hasbro, is how I used to feel about your SW and GI Joe toys before.. before the dark times. Before 6" and 5POA  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

Found BS 6" Wave 5 figures at a Marshalls - Chewie, Vader and Luke for 14.99. I did not see the Sandtrooper which I assume someone bought.

Continuing the theme of Rebels packaged items with an inflated Suggested Retail Price, saw Wave 1 Mission Series Zeb/Stormie, Palpatine/Yoda and Stormie/Fett for 9.99 at a Marshalls with a SRP of 17.00. Also saw Ultimate FX lightsabers (Vader/Kenobi) at Winners for 39.99 with a SRP of 72.00.
Title: Re: Winners

$9.99 will be considered "cheap" for those Mission 2-packs... today at TRU I bought one of those 2 packs and at the cash was stunned to see that they've gone up in price to $11.99!  That's about $13.55 total once taxes are included for 2 5POA figures... crazy  :crazy:

I agree. Those TF Combiner sets look really cool. Can't wait to get my hands on the Combaticons, been waiting for years for these. Although I really can't understand why the hell they decided to change Blast Off from a really cool Space Shuttle to a jet. Duh. Would have been a really killer set.  :-\

BS 3.75 Wave 4 (Shan/Dack/Farr ...) is showing  up again at Winners but the price has increased to 9.99 with a ridiculous suggested retail of 19.00.

More Rebels items out: Deluxe 12" (Kanaan/Inquisitor) - 19.99 (12.98 at TRU) at a Marshalls and Inquisitor Lightsabers at Winners for 29.99.
Title: Re: Winners
Post by: Darth Woo on July 31, 2015, 02:21:33 PM
I have seen in the past at Winners were items were priced really wrong.  Turns out people buy them and take a higher priced item's sticker they had purchased and put it on the cheap item and refund it so it looks like Winners is charging way more than they should but in actual fact, it's someone scamming them.

However, if you say it's the whole wave like that, then most likely they just raised their prices and are totally out of touch.
Title: Re: Winners
Post by: napseeker on July 31, 2015, 04:31:00 PM
I'm surprised a scam like that would work... I've noticed, at least recently, that the price stickers do reflect the proper name of the toy so that unless the cashier is really not paying attention, the scammer is more likely to get caught than not.

I know I returned something to Winners a few months back and saw the cashier was careful to inspect the product name on the price label before giving me the refund...
Title: Re: Winners
Post by: General Brashin on August 02, 2015, 06:37:44 PM
Another item for the fail file - Command Millennium Falcon for 39.99 at Winners which is more than the initial retail price charged by Target, TRU and Walmart. This item is currently on clearance at both TRU and Walmart for 19.98 and 30 respectively.

Unfortunately, in the case I saw, they bought G.I.Joe single pack figures and refunded it with G.I.Joe vehicles so the generic descriptions get past the cashier.

Post by: Wedge1021 on August 05, 2015, 10:56:38 PM
Not sure if this affects their prices in this case: I asked an employee once about why/how their items are priced. I had seen 3 of the same items side-by-side on the shelf once, and all 3 had different prices. She said it can vary depending on if the items are bought in different lots, ie. since Winners buys up all their product from liquidators and chains shedding their overstock, they may get things some times for less cost than other times. For these over-priced Command items, it could be they overpaid for them when buying them up from TRU and now they gotta get their money back somehow.
Title: Re: Winners
Post by: napseeker on August 06, 2015, 09:00:24 AM
I noticed more of the Toryn Farr wave at my Winners the other day.  Whereas they were once priced at $7.99+tax, they're now $9.99...  everything's getting more expensive.
Title: Re: Winners
Post by: sinkie on August 06, 2015, 10:58:39 AM
I wonder if someone setting prices for Winners might be aware of both the popularity of Star Wars as well as the current drought in new product overall and might be trying to take advantage of this. Or is it simply just Winners doing this somewhat generally. I know I've always been suspicious of the prices on food items/snack items. Sure they are gourmet chips but seriously? Is there any market for $8 chips at retail...now only $5.99 at Winners? I guess there must be because they always seem to have them lining the alleys to the cashiers for impulse buyers. But often I find clothing very reasonable so…maybe they hope to bring you in for the clothes and have you spend a bit more on other things like toys and snacks at a lower mark down (or inflated retail and ultimately no mark down)?

The larger 12" 5POA figures are called Heroes Series (HS in short and on all the price tags at Walmart), whereas the Missions Series are the 5POA Figures 2-packs. Saga Legends are the 5POA series.

Winners is getting Rebels Saga Legends figures but are selling them for 7.99 which is worse than regular retail. Saw mostly the Bly wave case assortment: Bly, Endor Han/Leia/Luke, Kanaan and Inquisitor although there was a X-Wing Luke at one Winners.

Also saw the dart firing Rebels Stormtrooper blaster for 19.99 and for some reason Winners is getting in the old green/white Yoda package 12" Anakin and Clone Trooper for 9.99.

Winners are getting in Jakks Pacific 18"-20" figures in Lava Vader and Rebels packaging for 19.99. I saw Vader, Bossk, Luke Jedi Knight, Scout Trooper, Chewie, Inquisitor and Zeb.

Also saw a TFA packaged figure, a 18" Orange Pauldron Sandtrooper. I've seen it at more than one Winners so it is not a fluke.

Also saw Lego large minifig LED Lite Lamps in green Yoda packaging - Vader, Boba Fett and Yoda priced at 29.99 except Yoda was 34.99 in some stores. Only saw Vader in one store.

Some Winners/Marshalls are reducing the clearance price of Class II Rebels packaged vehicles to $16.

Some Winners/Marshalls are receiving a 2nd shipment of Class II Rebels packaged non-Rebels vehicles: Anakin Delta JSF, Obi-Wan Eta JSF and Boba Fett Slave I but with a more reasonable initial price - 19.99.

A second shipment of Command Millennium Falcons is also showing up at some places, again more reasonably priced at 14.99 instead of 39.99.

It's an odd assortment with some from the last two waves.  The Dagobah Vader, Dutch, Doom, Chewie, and Rex are all from the 2nd wave (2015) and the 3P0, Thorn, Boushh, Mosep, Solo and Jawas are from the 3rd and final wave (2015).  No reports of Wolffe :(

On a side note.  I picked up an extra Mosep today and would love to trade with anyone who finds the Jawas.

From retail finds forum:

Don't do it.  Wave 1 stuff always, always, always gets over ordered (TRU especially) and will go on sale at a BOGO 1/2, or show up at Winners.

Well it's hard to believe but this morning my nephew found Wave 1 Rogue One 5POA figures at a Winners less than a week later - 7.99. Verified at another Winners. Places seem to be getting a bit more than a case perhaps up to 2 cases.

Saw them today finally.  However, they look so badly done like they are knockoffs.  Took a picture of the Stormtrooper.  The Kylo Ren had the non-updated lightsaber (ie. all black) and the smooth texture on the scarf.

The paint apps on the Stormtrooper were worse than the knockoff/bootleg ones from China. The box itself looks different than what I remember seeing.  Also, the taping is completely different than ones I see at other places.  It's just one fat piece of tape on the top and bottom for all of them unlike the other ones with two skinny pieces of tape at top and one skinny on the bottom.

Ya I remember seeing that stormtrooper few weeks ago and saw another 6" Jakku Fin at another Winners, Both Paint application are really really bad, and the print on the box feels weird.

Saw them today finally.  However, they look so badly done like they are knockoffs.  Took a picture of the Stormtrooper.  The Kylo Ren had the non-updated lightsaber (ie. all black) and the smooth texture on the scarf.

Just realized the Stormtrooper head is facing forward instead of to the right a little too. 

Thinking this might be the same situation as those Dollarama 5 POA 2-packs.

Pretty sure these are not knock offs but the real thing.

Just think that there are so different markets, so quality of production may vary from market to market. The Asian market, with barely no real quality control (there's a "fake" quality control on industrial products, believe me I've been through that in my job, so can't imagine there's a real QC for toys!) I'm sure tends to get the cheaper production runs. The Western economies probably gets the best quality of products due to the severe QC.

But with the overstock of products, and the decline of sales, Hasbro probably decided to dump their overruns to the cheap retailers and dollar stores. So we end up with a stash of cheap products at cheap retail stores.

So these are real. But the real cheap things.

Merely for the poisonous materials that could be in plastic and paint that does not fall within the reach of FDA (the serious Food & Drugs Administration) in the USA (and thus for Canada as well), I would stay away from these cheap products if you intend to give them to your kids at XMas.

Wouldn't Hasbro still have to abide by the regulations put into place for the sale of these items, though? In terms of health/safety?

Hasbro probably has to follow certain rules but nobody probably checks. If something bad ever happens, then things get looked at, which is too late at that point. There is probably some small fine paid if they are caught.

I managed to pick up Ezra's speeder for $8 and the First Order Snowspeeder for $15 as both were on "red tag" clearance pricing.
I was very happy as I specifically stopped in to Winners to see if they had those exact pieces.

Also saw the Tie Striker and U-Wing as others have mentioned. Those were not on clearance, but they had a lot ... so maybe someday soon.

My nephew found Rogue One Wave 3 2-packs at his local Winners - ST Commander/Baze and Phasma/Finn - $8.

As pointed out by GlitchBob007 for those who care:

It's worth noting that the Baze figure from the wave 3 (Finn/Phasma) case has a different, less yellow skin tone from the original release. It looks a bit better.

RogueOne tie fighter(wrong name I know) $24.99.
Kanan and ship $12.99.

If any one can locate a Baze/Storie 2 pk for me that would be awesome!  I need help.

Hey everyone, I just want to thank namely CJ, Ookk, Subcoolin and Kev for their kind generacity to help me find a Baze 2 pk.  I acted on Subcoolins tip and was very successful. So successful that I found a maul/5th sister 2pk I needed aswell.
I wanted to mention the extra efforts of Ookk and Kev(newer member) who both went out of their way to search, find, and purchase the Baze 2pk just to help another fellow Snowtrooper. I very much appreciate everyone's help and please use me to help return the favor. I too love to try and help locate for others, it helps on store runs where I turn up empty handed for myself but feel that my info and time is not wasted if I can in anyway help another SnowTrooper.

Some Winners have further reduced the clearance prices. I saw Ezra Speeders and AT-DP Speeders fot $5 and Jakku Landspeeders for $10.

Great!!! I've checked my local Winners and nothing yet. But these were bound to finish at this store, Hasbo Canada has apparently a warehouse full of them with no takers (WM and TRU declined).

I'm looking for Luke/Yoda, ANH Leia/R2, Ahsoka, Padmé. My kids loves these dolls and I have yet to find them anywhere. So Winners might be my way out.

Any idea how much they sell for? And were there plenty of each? And Leia, was she Hoth Leia or ANH Leia?

I went to Winners in Mississauga and found a Luke/Yoda for $9.99.  There was only the one at the store, plus the Hoth Leia/R2D2 and Rey/BB8.  The first two Winners I went to had no Lukes, but did have one or two of the Leia and Rey.

I think the line is either getting axed by Hasbro due to poor results or the stores in Canada declined these all together, leaving Hasbro Canada to send to clearance stores like Winners the bulge of their stock that was meant to TRU and Walmart. So I think it's not likely we'll ever see Padmé and Ahsoka here in Canada. Same for Rey-Kylo Ren 2-pack, or that ANH Leia-R2 special pack.

Anyway, we'll see. My eyes are opened and I'm ready to find these anywhere but at TRU and Walmart.

BTW Luke and Yoda seems to be packed 1 per box along with Rey-BB8 and Leia Hoth-R2...

Found basic Forces of Destiny dolls at several Winners: Ahsoka w/loth cat and Rey of Jakku - 7.99. The distribution of figures at the different WInners was 2 Ahsoka and a Rey, 2 Reys only and a single Ahoska. I assume some dolls had already been bought. The 2 Marshalls and a few other Winners I checked had no dolls although it may be early.

Edit: Case assortment appears to be 2 Ahsokas and 2 Reys.
