Title: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: DarthDerek on March 10, 2018, 09:29:46 AM
Ok so we all bought the 40th Vintage Carded figures last year, wether or not you really collect 6 inch.
And you bought a Vader in the EarlyBird box. But did you buy another Vader to take out of the EarlyBird box to display carded?  I know some have like myself found second Vader sets at my local TRU for around $28 bucks.

Here is your chance to get it online at $22.00 and maybe cheaper with a EB Games VIP EDGE Card.

Hmm. Tempting to get one to keep on card as I have the boxed version that came out with TLJ wave.

I did - got him on clearance at my local eb for a deep discount as the outer carton was obliterated. Happy to see some others might get a similar chance.

Wolffe scheduled for May 1st release. 

Has unique SKU# 735412 so it should be easier to find as it won't be mixed in with regular BS stuff.

Do we know if the Gamorrean Guard has a SKU/release date yet?

So I called up the EBGames that will put Commander Wolffe on hold for me to confirm that it is on order for me and they confirmed it is. 

They have 3  that are on the way and all 3 are spoken for.  So if you want one, I think it would be good idea to just call all the stores around you until you find one willing to put it on hold. 

I know the first one I called said it's first come first serve and they aren't taking any pre-orders, but the second store I called accepted it.

I went on Monday to my store and they had already broken the street date and sold them the previous Friday when they came in. He looked up local stock and said the website is showing lots available - however the online listing has not gone live yet. He checked the system and it allowed him to pre-order one for me (I just had to put down $5). So hopefully it arrives soon before he disappears completely, in case something gets canceled along the way and I have to track down another. It's great that ebgames is getting more into these, but it would be nice if they were more consistent in putting up preorders online. I got most of their exclusives that way, and it was nice and hassle-free.

So, my Wolffe arrived at EBGames today. Really happy that they allowed me to pre-order it yesterday when the other store didn't let me.

Picked up my Wolffe last night.  Nice looking figure.  Here's some pics with Rex.

I did find that his helmet profile seems weird.  It seems too flat in my opinion, unless that is how his helmet should look.  I just don't remember it being so flat before.

His kama is too short too.  I didn't think it looked too bad until I put him together with Rex.

Nice pics DarthWoo.
I picked up mine this morning and another TVC Hoth rebel trooper.
I asked and looked in their binder book for upcoming Star Wars figures, but there wasn't any dates yet.
But she did see the Garmorean Guard in there system but can't order yet. Does any one know the scu number for ebgames and the G Gaurd ? She tell me the price $44.9?.

I keep checking for 4LOM. Finally today a dude very close to my age advised he had seen one come & go from the store in the past week. I put an order in on Amazon to try & negate the "need" to stop at every EB I see. ><

My wife just called me to let me know that EBgames has just left a telephone message at home that my preorder has arrived.
Is it Conan (Moloch) ?
Is it the newer besbin Leia ?
I'm not sure which one yet, but here is your heads up to check your store.

It's the Black Series 6" Besbin Leia.

99% sure it's Bespin Leia. My store had her out on the shelf already today and was calling up people for their pre-orders while I was standing there. I had gone there to pre-order myself, but left with one off the floor instead. Nice looking figure!
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: bobafett108 on September 24, 2018, 10:07:29 PM
agree with Wedge. it is a nice figure. wish she came with more thou, but the new printing tech for the face is really working well.
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: old man ben on September 25, 2018, 08:47:10 AM
The SKU number for the “Conan” black series figure at EB Games is740789 which is different than the Bespin Leia.  Release date for this preorder is Oct 1 and the price is showing as $39.99.  This is the figure I believe will be Moloch.

Goes without saying, but if anyone finds Bespin Leia (red/pink gown) at EB, I'd like to know it's available.

EDITED: Appears I'm losing my mind - I thought a friend of mine told me they found 6" Leia Bespin at Target in the US, and I believed we were getting Leia Bespin GOWN this year - but now I can't find anything. Is that figure not coming? In my defence, I'm old enough to be going senile.....  :speechless-smiley-004:

No there is a Bespin Escape Leia.  Its basically Hoth Leia without the yellowish vest.
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: jjreason on December 08, 2018, 11:15:56 AM
Yes, I managed to track her down - just looking for Hoth Leia now, I guess Bespin Gown was a figment of my fanboy imagination.  :(
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: Darth Cujo on December 08, 2018, 11:46:02 AM
The initial rumors just stated "Bespin Leia" so there was speculation it was going to be bespin gown but it ended up being bespin escape.

I find bespin escape just different enough (vest, boots, hair, gloves), but would have preferred bespin gown.
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: jjreason on December 09, 2018, 11:16:38 PM
I'm very happy with Bespin Escape - looking forward to finding Hoth Leia so I can do a compare/contrast with the faces - the Bespin Escape one I got is just gorgeous.

It just feels like I'm never going to get any of wave 2 or 3 of this line.  Brampton TRU seems like it is never going to get the new waves, so I am stuck holding onto these rain checks.  Maybe some day.

Hey Bob,
As far as I know it's across all franchise, atleast here in the GTA Ontario.
They have had some good ones through out 2018, but it depends what your into.
I remember they have had on their "FIVE DOLLAR DEAL FRIDAYS" all POPS $5,  black series 6" Luke on rock set $5, old 5poa figures $5, tiki Star Wars mugs $5,  and now TVC $5.

Post by: fishfan on December 30, 2018, 10:11:25 AM
Every Friday is $5 Friday.  The items that are part of the promo change week to week. Pop!s, action figures, wallets, t-shirts.  I just go on the website on Friday mornings and see what's listed under the "on sale" tab.  If it's on the site for $5, it's $5 in store also.

 holy crap! i dont go to Ebgames too often so i had no clue about this. not surprised the two people i spoke with knew next to nothing but that happens at retail :S lol.

 well i kinda hope/think there is a good chance TVC ones will go on sale again. thats really all i want right now and only certain ones anyway. the other figs u mentoined arent bad. not into Pops but they are cute or whatever. baha

 thanks Derek!

 I got some Black Series for $5 before. For the VC figures, wonder if anyone at the store knew about it. They still had the exact same ones after the $5 sale as the ones they had before.

 idk, its pretty hidden and quick. the one EB i went too had the range trooper wave of VC figs. it didnt look like anyone bought anything the day before unless they restocked that morning. its gotta happen again so i can see whats up!

 that was the best at the one store.. me -''did you have a sale on these figures for 5 yesterday'' retarded employee - "possibly!""  gee! thanks! haha :/

EB Games has updated their ordering system....it now shows as 'Moloch'...no longer 'Conan'.

Also was at Target in Niagara Falls U S. of A. today...and the Molochs are 'shelf warming' like crazy, and they are all beat to hell with case cutter slits on top of the packaging....I found 2 that were acceptable.

Nice.  I have no interest in him though (thankfully).  I expect they'll have a few here and there after all the pre-orders are filled though. 

I didn't get the Gammy Guard and never actually saw him.  Again, thankfully I was interested in him.

Glad i got him but dont like how he is more expensive.

They seem to be doing this with the Walgreens exclusives lately - Marvel Legends as well.
I don't think they do it with the Target exclusives, but we haven't had one of those for a little while now.
I assume their cost is likely a bit higher for these as they probably need to pony up a bit more cash for them.
Glad we at least get them here now - I used to order them through Walgreens' website but that is getting less consistently stocked.
