ebgames.ca has the 6-inch Black Series  C-3PO exclusive available for $29.99. Funny thing.....the photo they are using is actually of the 3.75 inch black series C-3PO.

Ebgames.ca has the Vintage 40th Anniversary R5-D4 for the new low price of only$34.99 each. (Upt the price by $5.00.......Boooooooooo! )

They seem to have been increasing the prices on all of their newer 6" figures, not just SW, but also Marvel Legends too.

I think it's because they have some kind of new (paid) premium membership program where members get 10 or 15% off their purchases... so naturally to offset that and maintain their profits, they raise their regular retail prices!

Saw 3 R5's yesterday. I may have impulsively bought one at $29.99 but no way I'm buying at the new price. I left without buying any of them.

Apparently the $19.98 clearance price was a one day flash sale for Saturday only....price is now back to $59.99 for the BS Legacy Pack.

I found one in store, damaged outer box. The lady working was nice enough to sell it to me for yesterday's price since "we just want to get rid of them". Lucky for me.  :party0053:

Unfortunately, haven't heard a thing about this one...or the titanium helmet exclusive (TIE fighter and Luke X-wing). Both are available for order through gamestop.com and ship to Canada...but for a high price on the shipping... and you will likely get import fees too.

Went to EB on Friday not realizing that Battlefront II was coming out. The lineup was all to pick up the game or the new Pokemon one. Couldn't tell which fans were worse.

Went to the toy area and they had just put out a fresh case of 6". Got the Praetorian guard for $26. Looked down and they had retagged a Guard 4 pack for $106. They had a Snoke but I already was blowing my budget.

Get in line and guys in front of me see my haul. "is that the new guard?" "Yep. Looks like they put stuff out for Battlefront."

The line shrinks by 3 guys who went to check the Star Wars section.

Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: Darth Woo on May 24, 2018, 02:59:38 PM
Looks like Chewie will be more plentiful than Wolffe.  Just picked up Chewie today.  They literally got it 5 min before I got there.  They had like 10 of him.

I never planned to get him, but finally caved.  I'll probably sell my TFA one just cause I never really liked that one too much anyways.

Thanks! I picked up a pair from my local store, I think they just came in as they had 4 on the shelf.

Losing hope on my Wolffe pre-order. I seriously doubt they will get any more of him in.
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: bobafett108 on May 24, 2018, 10:52:36 PM
yea. i was so lucky getting my wolffe. was just luck one i got.  i am hoping the pre order for the gammy guard goes thru ok and it comes in. i have not had much luck with pre orders thru ebgames at the store lately.
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: Darth Woo on May 24, 2018, 11:19:13 PM
The store I got Wolffe only had 3 and all 3 were spoken for before it even hit the stores. I was lucky that I was one of the 3. The store I got Chewie at wouldn't take any Wolffe pre-orders and it was first come first served.

Thanks to DarthDerek's post, I was able to get a Rey for $44 (with Edge Card membership).  It'll come to the same as getting it for $20 in the US, so I figured why not.

Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: jjreason on June 24, 2018, 09:01:17 AM
I haven't seen one yet, but I didn't preorder either so they may all be taken. I will have a tough time paying almost double price for it, but I'm not saying 100 percent no either, based on how people have reacted to the figure.
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: Darth Cujo on June 24, 2018, 09:27:23 AM
I preordered and have yet to get a phone call. I think I will be calling them today. Hopefully it didn't get missed for some reason.


Follow up... I phoned this morning and they had one for me. But after speaking to them in store they never had any notice of my preorder. Mine was out on the floor for sale before I called.

That store only got two in. One sold yesterday and I picked up the other.

If you preordered and haven't received a phone call you should call them now.
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: bobafett108 on June 24, 2018, 09:00:19 PM
happened to me too on Friday exact same thing manager told me the pre order sku was different then the one that got in so no pre orders were listed when got in. very lucky I got mine
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: jjreason on June 24, 2018, 09:07:57 PM
2 just hanging out available at the store closest me after the move. Very happy with the figure - I decided to get one once I saw it in person without hesitation. Good luck in getting them!
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: Wedge1021 on June 24, 2018, 09:32:25 PM
I did get a phone call, but it was from a different store than where I actually did the preorder. It was very strange, they couldn't figure out why. And I had pre-ordered 2 but they only had one set aside for me. I picked it up plus an extra they had on the floor. Then I went in right away to the other store and cancelled the 2 they had for me there (with no phone call), so they could sell them to others. Moral of the story - ebgames has an AWFUL pre-order system that is set up for mass-release video games, and not optimized for very-limited-run action figures. I wish they would just let us pay full price upon pre-ordering and then guarantee they will be there for us. If you don't go to pick them up right away, they'll sell them out from under you.

I picked up my pre-ordered Gamo Guard today at EB Games .  It is a nice figure (just like The Vintage Collection 4" Gamo Guard), however, $45 plus tax for a six inch piece of plastic is kind of getting ridiculous.  I have been a long time collector of SW figures, however, since Disney acquired the rights, quality has gone way down (5 POA) and prices have gone up (plus TLJ was terrible and Han Solo was average.  Also, no Han Solo product is at retail stores).  I am kind of losing interest in SW figures and collecting for the first time in my life.  Anyone else feel the same? 
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: jjreason on June 25, 2018, 12:12:51 AM
The allure of collecting, at least for me, has typically been the finding & acquiring more than it has been the enjoying of what I found (weird, yes, I would have to agree).

When you take those out of the equation via bad distribution or simply by NOT creating anything worth finding - the hobby is spoiled, or at least significantly reduced. High prices don't help, but that pain goes away for me pretty quickly as long as I'm satisfied with the item.

I got mine.  It is indeed, very nice.  I can see why they had to charge a little extra.  Figure is amazing. 

I was the only one who pre-ordered at my store and the manager said they only got one other one.  That's not a lot of Gamorrean Guards around, though I expect still more of them than Clone Commander Wolfe, who is already starting to go for hefty prices on eBay.

Black Series 6-inch Admiral Piett is available for pre-order in-store.  I pre-ordered mine today. Item #737834.

Also, there is a mystery 'Vintage' vehicle that looks to be coming on August 1st. I can't see this being the Rogue One Combat Assault Tank  as the price of the vehicle is $199.99.
It's in their system as 738637 STAR WARS VINTAGE VEHICL 199.99. Hmmmmmmmm!

If it's a new Vintage Collection vehicle, I'm gonna be super excited.....please let it be an original trilogy vehicle. We might have to wait until San Diego Comic Con is in full swing to find out what it could be.

For some reason I am thinking it's the Sandcrawler. That would fit with the price of $200. Does anyone remember how there was a hint of a Sandcrawler last year?  It was just a silhouette of it and I think suggested as some kind of Disney exclusive... then we never heard anything more about it. But I think the word "playset" was tossed in as part of the hint. So it could be a Sandcrawler vehicle-playset type deal... similar to that Clone Wars republic shuttle that opened up to also function as a playset, since Hasbro likes to combine the two.

The Sandcrawler was actually a vehicle that was going to be put out by Disney....not Hasbro. It was supposed to be part of Disney's droid factory line.  For some reason it's been put on the back burner....there has been no talk about it since May 2018.
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: napseeker on July 06, 2018, 06:33:17 PM
That's my point.. it was supposed to be from Disney. Then we never heard anything more about it. Maybe Hasbro decided to release a full Sandcrawler and Disney cancelled their plans to offer a likely cheaper, less robust Sandcrawler of their own... no one would want their version if Hasbro was going to do their own.

Is the Vintage Collection Vehicle an Ebgames Exclusive?  Or just that ebg will carry it in stock?  I noticed this being discussed on JediTemple Archives a few days ago, where they were showing pictures of the Hover Tank and in the bottom left corner you could see another TVC boxed Vehicle , bigger then the Tank box.
I'm guessing it's a TLJ REBEL BOMBER SHIP!....lol.... Not a rumor, just my guess. :P
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: Darth Cujo on July 07, 2018, 11:54:54 AM
Thanks for the item number on Piett. I was able to preorder over the phone at a location near me. One less exclusive to track down. Though after my gammy guard experience I wont relax until I have it in hand.

Now I wonder if ebgames will bring in Veers... really looking forward to that one.

I wonder if the $200 item is the hover tank at a ridiculously inflated price. Wouldn't surprise me.

Maybe you have to buy them in pairs. I'm guessing they will be about $100 each based o  US pricing. Well, $100 for Hovertank I guess is a little optimistic.

Ordered my Veers with the SKU thx

Interestingly the girl who did my preorder asked me if I wanted to preorder the new Vintage vehicle for $200. When I asked her if there were any details on what it was she said it is LUKEíS LANDSPEEDER in the Vintage line. Not sure how right she is but she seemed pretty sure?!
Title: Re: EB Games

Post by: old man ben on July 21, 2018, 02:56:42 PM
Regarding the girl at EB Games saying the new $200 vehicle is Luke's Speeder, I find this hard to believe.  First of all, none of the EB people actually knows what it is going to be, but a retail of $200 for a vehicle that's already been released at $100 is a bit far fetched.  Who's going to pay that price when they are down to $60 in the stores now.
Title: Re: EB Games

This morning my EBGames called me to let me know that the six inch Moloch solo figure is up for preorder. He said this preorder needed the $5 down deposit.  He didn't say what the full price of Moloch would be , but I read somewhere that it would be priced like the Gammorean Guard, around $40-45 each. I don't have the scu number but he said its under the code name ( that I forget) like Hercules, but not Hercules.

Subcoolin, maybe you can help here. What was the code name Moloch was under?

I was just there but the price was not 34.99 but more (I wanna say $45).  Considering the availability of most of the EB recent exclusives (Gammorean, Wolffe) I took a risk and put a deposit on two.

Post by: bob on July 22, 2018, 05:46:54 PM

 holy f! hasbros getting worse. gammy guard is 45 just cause its got some extra stuff a regular figure doesnt have. thats suspect anyway and cant cost 15 more for that if you ask me. now this figure cause its bigger is going to cost that much. if its Moloch but most seem to think it is. i dont know how people can afford this anymore!
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: jjreason on July 22, 2018, 06:02:59 PM
I took my Gam Guard back, just couldn't enjoy it knowing it was $50 with taxes. It IS a larger than normal, hefty as hell figure with added accessories - I can see it costing more - but it wound up being too much for me. Moloch had better be huge and/or come with some interesting stuff if it's going to be worth the same price.

 its a shorter figure but a wider one! still, smart move taking back. that takes some discipline too! sometimes i get stuff that im not sure about and i return it but sometimes once i have it i forget about the mulla. im pretty good though, i cant justify buying plastic if its too much. i just cant!
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: jjreason on July 22, 2018, 11:40:10 PM
Ha, thanks - I only walked out with about $15 in hand because I used the return credit to pre-order Admiral Piett - at least he fits in with my plan to only buy ESB figures in this scale, no way I can justify spreading it out any further than that.
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: bob on July 23, 2018, 12:23:03 AM
 cool! im a big fan of ESB too (big surprise right?,ha) sometimes i think just having a vintage kenner display and maybe just modern ESB would be a better idea. once i see stuff i buy it with new movies etc etc. i did get a Solo figure finally. the range trooper in 6 inch.

its hard to stay with one focus even though i dont buy crazy amounts of stuff, still sorta trying to figure that out :S i have too much as it is, i dont know how some of these people do it, i dont mean the cash part of it now either, just all the stuff gets to be too much!

I found out what the new mystery Vintage Vehicle (showing at $200) is.  It is the Hover Tank that TRU has already at $120.  It is not released until tomorrow and maybe at that point the $200 price point might be reduced.
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: napseeker on July 31, 2018, 02:34:24 PM
That. is. insane.  Are they just buying their stock from TRU now and reselling it at a markup or something? 

With platinum card discount of 10% (or was it 15%, I don't remember) of $20, that's still $180+tax. Yeeesh.

I found out what the new mystery Vintage Vehicle (showing at $200) is.  It is the Hover Tank that TRU has already at $120.  It is not released until tomorrow and maybe at that point the $200 price point might be reduced.

Dang thatís a steep mark-up. They gotta drop that down to something more reasonable otherwise who would buy that?

This is true - but the fact they marked down the nice 40th Vader 6" in extra packaging to $20 is also kinda hopeful. I would gladly take the tank for $59.99!  :party0053:

EB has been pretty good with their prices on some stuff. Not so much on others. But the 200$ hover tank is a bit goofy. Must be some kind of error (I say that even though I guessed right ☺).

Thanks for the heads up on Piett. I'll hope for a call tomorrow.

That would be awesome! I would pick up a couple extra for gifts at that price. Not sure if they over produced the tank enough for it to even go on clearance tho. EB wont even price match so if the price is correct at $200 then theyíre going to be sitting on those for a while.

Post by: napseeker on August 01, 2018, 04:18:30 PM
I remember someone on the RS forums who bought the tank saying that there was plenty of room inside the cardboard packaging to hold a driver figure (but of course, it was empty space). 

Wondering if it's possible that maybe this is a yet-another unannounced product, maybe a special edition of the tank that does come with a tank crew? Maybe a driver, a gunner, and a Stormtrooper to justify the higher cost?  It seems hard to believe that EB would try to sell the $120 TRU tank for $80 more... unless they've just plain lost their minds.

Actually, I asked about this and they will price match if it is advertised in print and the item is actually in stock at the advertised place.  Never actually ever did it but that's what I was told by one of the employees.

Thatís weird. I asked the girl who called me and she said they donít price match at all.

Honestly Iíll probably buy from TRU to support it. We are lucky we still have TRU up here. Doing my small part to keep it alive. Now I just have to find one first so I can buy it lol

Edited to add: just came from store and asked in person. The info Iíve been given is that they donít price match. Not sure why some stores do and some donít

I agree as well. If they can just iron out their pre-order system such that it can guarantee your figure will be there for you, and develop consistent availability for pre-orders, they'll be 10/10 in my books. Until then, I'll give them an 8. Which is still pretty good!

with everyone here too. if it was not for EBgames in my area I would have not gotten anything new. my local tru have not had any new none ex 6 inch figure since feb if not later. have gotten all the new six inch ones from ebamges with out a problem and love that can pre order the figures.

Title: Re: EB Games

If the last few posts indicate anything, it's that EB Games is eating TRU's lunch these past 2 months (especially if you collect both Marvel Legends and SW 6").

I had both Piett and The Thing in my bag the other day, was headed off to TRU because the TRU director (for all of the Ontario stores I think, not Canada-wide) had been popping up at my local store lately just to show him that TRU needed to step up their game right now, unless they wanted to lose a ton of business to EB. 

I'd say that people should send the same message to their nearest TRU, since it sounds like all the TRUs are suffering from the lack of new toys problem (I haven't seen any new NECA stuff at any of my TRUs either).

Given our collecting situation has been way better than the US is solely because of EB in many cases, but also because we do still have TRUs alive in our country, it should be important to inform TRU that they can't just sit back and breathe a sigh of relief because of Fairfax, they need to get new product on their shelves NOW if they want collectors to help keep them alive.

My only beef with EBgames is that I wish they would have better availability on their website. For someone like me who lives many hours drive away from an EBG it would be nice to just order the figures. It is very spotty what they post online.
Title: Re: EB Games
Post by: Darth Woo on August 03, 2018, 01:08:19 PM
There is one EBGames close to me that's really bad and won't take any pre-orders.  There is another one slightly farther away, but they always accept my orders when I ask them.  For Wolffe, the first store said they cannot do anything until it's released on May 1st and it's first come first serve when it comes in.

The one that I deal with now, even though it's slightly farther, they've always accepted my pre-order.  For Wolffe, I called them right after the first store told me no, but this store just took my info and called me when it arrived.

For Piett, same thing, they took my order.  Both times, I didn't even have to pay the $5 deposit.  But when going to pick up, they checked that I was who I was to make sure someone else isn't buying my figure.

I'm giving TRU a bit of a pass right now, as I assume they've got some re-organizing to do within the company as well as likely some restructuring of supply chains, etc. However, that grace period is going to run out really quick. August/September is traditionally when resets are done in the toy department, and if TRU doesn't come out guns blazing for the Christmas season, I think a lot of collectors will write them off. And who knows? Maybe TRU re-evaluates their target market and decides that the adult collector isn't worth it for them. Seems like Walmart has already decided that.

But if TRU decides to stay in the game, they need to re-think their stock purchase strategy. They need to limit the quantity of both exclusives and regular-release figures. Too often they will over-order on a wave and it will sit there forever. The collector market isn't as big as it once was, and those that are left are a lot more choosy than we used to be. There's still money to be made but it has to be done smartly. EB seems to be doing it right for the most part - while a limited number of figures per store can be frustrating if you're trying to chase one down, it keeps the line from clogging their pegs and keeps the stock flowing. They're also a lot quicker to clearance stuff out, and at significant discounts as well. TRU has always been slow with that.

Walked into EB Games today and they were unpacking series 2 of the Vintage Collection. I picked up Han and Enfys. The hair on Han was glued weird so I am going to peel it and reglue it. The Enfys is nicely done but I was hoping the helmet came off with an alternative head underneath. Oh well.

They had all the rest, including the Tank Driver, but I really only wanted Han and Enfys.

Called one store on Thursday and they were presold out of their allotment of Leia. Popped into another location yesterday and they had presold 5 of their 7 so was able to get one of their two left. The guy was commenting on how the black series exclusives have been flying out the door, pretty much preselling out in most cases.

Nice figure.

Too bad they put the date stamp on the leg. It seems so pro pounced on her. I also noticed her torso doesn't seem to fit properly. Unless she's bent back a little, theres a gap. I do like the figure though. She stands really solidly too even though she has small feet with heels.

This figure (along with Val, L3-37) are just regular release, not EB exclusives. They won't usually do pre-orders for regular figures as I think they all get put in the computer system under the same SKU number. So you can't really reserve a specific figure of those. Unless you are buddies with the employees and they know to set something aside for you special when it comes in.

I would take advantage of one of the online stores case pre-orders on this wave.  The Wave 19 case is:

1x Val
1x Imperial Patrol Trooper
1x L3-37
1x Rio Durant
1x Dengar
1x Princess Leia Hoth Outfit
1x Lando Calrissian Ė Skiff Guard
1x Han Solo Bespin

7 new figures and a Han Bespin.  Why bother hunting at retail for figs, only to find that the chase one (let's go with Dengar from this one - see 4-LOM for reference) is never there?

DorkSideToys.com and NorthmenCollectibles.ca both have the case listed for pre-order with the Bespin Han, and that's the case assortment that's been in the rumour lists for months now. Things have been known to change though! Either way, this is one of the best case assortments for Black Series 6" in a long time. I'll be ordering a case for sure this time around, which I don't think I've done for BS6" since the Rogue One waves. I've still got my receipt for my Bespin Han, so I'm all ready to return him if he is indeed in the case. Which I'm actually hoping for, because I have no interest in a Holdo figure.

From what I understand, there is a different case revision out there. It may just be a Hasbro Canada thing - it's been known to happen in the past. Why they've done it is beyond me - as far as I can tell, these cases are only gonna help clog up the pegs even more when (IF?!) the proper wave 19 cases show up here.

That's all we need is more Qi'ra - she is already clogging up the pegs in both 6" and 3.75" sizes.
What we are missing from the six inch wave 19 is Hoth Leia, Dengar, Lando Skiff Guard and Rio Durant.  I wonder when they will appear and with what other figures?

Anyone know if EBGames will be getting that new Gamestop exclusive Imperial Rocket Trooper?

They  have been good at getting exclusives except for the actual Imperial Troops.  I don't think the Battlefront Tie Pilot ever made it here.

Hope the Rocket Trooper won't suffer that fate.

I hope so as well.  Though with the amount of exclusives in the 6' category this year, I might have to either plan a trip to Pennsylvania or rely on etailers to get some imported in.

Which is dumb. It's weird EBGames gets all kinds of other exclusives but sometime not their own.

They must have just put that in because I went there Tuesday and they couldn't find it in the system.

Not Black Series

My jumptrooper was in on Monday but I hadn't gotten the mail. Picked it up last night and wow is it nice. I love the helmet sculpt, very Dr. Fate-ish in appearance. The jumppack is thin and the hoses are attached from the pack to the helmet. Otherwise the rest is a Stormtrooper body with the exception of the one shoulder armor being goldenrod in colour.

In all, quite a nice figure. I am curious if they are out in the US yet.

I wish they were more descriptive in indicating what it is.  I have 2 of the Walmart Mimbans already and don't really need another and I don't collect 3.75" Clone.

I guess I'll preorder anyways and if it's not Han, I can always sell or change my mind and keep.

Did the same thing.  Hoping it's Han Stormtrooper since it's a Target exclusive, though it could easily be the Elite Clone trooper in which case I'm not quite as chuffed about it.

So, just pre-ordered the 3.75" vintage trooper at EB when I picked up my Jumptrooper.

Looks like they got a second shipment of him.  I never got called for the pre-order when they first got it and the guy got it shipped from another store for me.

Then over the weekend, I got a call that my pre-order came in, so I'm guessing mine was on the second batch.  Just gotta decide if I want two of the Jumptrooper or if I should sell one.

If it's just a pre-order, you don't have to buy it. You can tell them you changed your mind, they'll just put it on the shelf with the others. You can get your deposit back or put it towards something else.

It is yes. Although I have both paint variants of the black series clone, where one variant has more solid grey colour applications and I thought this new TVC figure would be identical.  However this newer Clone has even more solid colour grey apps to it then the black series variant does ( in the mid section inpiticular).  So I guess it's new enough plus the card art.

Is it supposed to be coming to EB Games?  I'm getting tired of all the guessing games with Hasbro Canada and where exclusives will end up (except with Walmart, which I know aren't coming at all)

Generally, Target exclusives go to TRU and Gamestop and Walgreens exclusives go to EB Games. Thats why I'm hoping Obi Wan shows up at EB.

I don't know why.....but I have no interest in this obi-wan figure. I will wait for clearance...and if it sells out, I won't care. Original trilogy figures only for me.

Seeing now that it is $34.99, I'm just gonna wait and see.  If I see it, I'll buy it, but not gonna bother pre-ordering it.

Picked up 2 VC Rogue One Stormtroopers at EB yesterday.  They had the whole wave except for Yakface.

I don't believe Yakface is in the case assortment that eb is getting.

I think it's:

2X Lando
2X Stormtrooper
2X Chewbacca
1X Praetorian Guard
1X Phasma

That was actually exactly what they had.  Wondering why we didn't get Yakface since he's on the cardback.

I said it in another thread - seems unlikely that wave will make it to Canada.

Will the Fan Expo exclusives be available at EB Games stores or their online site?
i read another post where someone said they preordered the exclusives online or in store, I don't see any links on line though.

$5 Friday is back with a vengeance.  Tons of Star Wars merch down to $5 today only.  My buddy picked me up the Black Series Landspeeder w/Luke and a Death Star timer.  Funkos, Vinyls, Old luke on a rock black series.  All $5!!

FYI - newer black series figures (basically everything), Archive Figures, and TVC figures are NOT $5.

I was able to pick up some stuff, but by far the most fun was the $5 Battlefront II Black series helmet I got for $5.  THat's a $149 item for $5.  Pretty sweet.

They had lots of Funko one and two packs but they are not my thing.  They did have one LEGO Cloud Rider and Swoop Bikes set for $5 so I snapped that up for my grandson.  It was regular $39.99.
Wish I had gone in earlier.

Every store is different.  They have a list of stuff that head office sends them to put to $5, and then they can also offer other items that they may have overstock of.

As is typical, there was nothing of note at my EB locations...

Ran to another location and found the Encounter on Endor Funko movie moment $5!  Sweet!
