EXACTLY!!!!  Lol
Although it does say being released January 20 on their website. Even though you can’t order it anymore.

I saw the whole wave at TRU in London over the holidays. Great looking set of figures.

Check with Bor Gullet.  He will know the truth.

Did you get this yet? My local had one new on the shelf just this week, which I grabbed. Haven't seen it in any store before that.

Yes...I received my BS Bohdi a couple of weeks ago.

Picked up two 212th Clones in store.  I wanted two and that's exactly what they have left from the pre-orders.

Saw the Navarro playset at Gamestop.  I passed on it though.

Just picked up the Walmart Clone Wars Mace Windu in store today.  Really surprised I was able to get it.  They didn't have it last week when I got the 212th, so really lucky.  They also restocked the Imperial Crosshair as they had him again.

Nothing like that at one of my local Walmart’s.  Just four black series Bo-Ketan Kryse and one Bad Batch Commander, plus one lonely TVC figure - a Death Star Droid.

Sorry, I meant I got that 'Walmart' Clone Wars Mace at Gamestop.

The price is just wacked.  He isn't worth $50.  Still pre-ordered though.
Title: Re: GameStop Canada
Post by: jjreason on April 14, 2022, 05:42:07 PM
They get you coming or going. He is basically a "need" to complete that amazing Rogue One wave.
Title: Re: GameStop Canada
Post by: old man ben on April 15, 2022, 02:22:34 PM
Cobb Vanth isn’t worth $50 either although he does come with quite a few accessories.  Still, I bit the bullet and ordered both.

Picked up a VC Clone Captain today. Almost didn't see him in the back of a peg with some VC figures.

Lucked out on Mace a few weeks ago but no luck on the 6" Fordo.

Got an Umbra Operative Clone today.  Was $40.49 after discount.  No idea why he's so expensive. :(  Maybe that's why they still had like 5 of them on shelf.

Picked up BS Echo in store yesterday. Funny thing is I preordered online for pickup at that store, yet it was available on shelf and no one ever called me. That's  why I prefer picking shipping option but for some reason he wasn't available for shipping when preordered.

Yea. I use to have shipped to local store but never call me and always never call me.

NEB-B Deluxe BS Droid for $49.99 at GameStop!  Yikes.  When will these price increases stop.  He is a fun figure but fringe at best.  Why is he so much?

Just got shipping notice for my Shae Vizla from Gamestop.  Was really surprised.  This is actually where I like the sites like Toysnowman where I pay up front.  All these things are shipping early and racking up on my bill.  The problem is some of my G.I.Joe stuff all got shipped late though so now everything is coming within a 2 week window...haha.

Oh well, still better than buying at Toys R Us I guess...haha.  I saw the Classified Croc Master at Toys R Us 2 weeks ago and was tempted to get it and cancel my Gamestop pre-order, but then checked the price; TRU: $66.99 Gamestop pre-order (with membership): $56.69. 

I ended up picking up Sgt Kreel as he was $39.99 at TRU and my Gamestop pre-order was $38.69.  I saw some where the helmets were painted badly so I paid the extra $1 to be able to pick the one that looked the best versus hoping I get a good one from Gamestop.  Lucky though as TRU raised the price of Kreel to $44.99.

I received a box from GameStop yesterday but didn’t open it until this morning.  When I saw Darth Woo’s post above I just assumed it would be the same Shae Vizla as he is getting.  But to my surprise it was the 6” Princess Leia Organa in the “hidden box” packaging.  A pleasant arrival!

Just got shipping notice for Sev.  Holy, everything is just piling up now all at once...haha.

Thanks for the headsup.  I cancelled my Amazon orders and re-ordered using my Edge Card.

Post by: old man ben on July 26, 2022, 08:30:59 AM
Yes, thanks Ian.  Got my orders in as well.  It seems strange to book something that you won’t get for a year!

I currently have 45  different Vintage Collection or Black Series figures pending (confirmed) currently with gamestop over the next 12 months or so.

I think I need to drop all black series orders and cut the cord with the black series. And....I think I will drop the retro collection except maybe any original trilogy figures. My heart is still with the Vintage Collection 3.75" figures.
Title: Re: GameStop Canada
Post by: old man ben on July 27, 2022, 01:37:07 PM
I think that with the new Black series figures hitting $40 and up, its getting very hard to collect them, let alone collect them all. There is a display factor as well.. they take up a lot of room.
I do like like some of the Retro figures, particularly from the new series such as the Mandalorian, etc.  I don’t really need
all the Retro OTC versions as I already have all the originals.
To me, the TVC figures are the place to be, even though they are going up in price as well.  Just have to be more selective with my ordering/purchasing.

Gamestop is getting the Deluxe Boba in.  Saw a few behind the cash for pre orders at one store and another on the peg at South Barrie.  $39.  I passed on this before seeing it in person. No bubble, no sale.
Title: Re: GameStop Canada
Post by: jjreason on July 27, 2022, 08:36:17 PM
That's how I feel too - if I'm going to buy it in person, I reserve the right to see the actual figure. Was very glad I was able to get Koska Reeves at TRU because only 1 of the 5 figures had the face painted in a suitable manner.

What deluxe Boba Fett is that. Throne room one ?

No, it's the TVC Tatooine version sold in a box rather than a cardback:

https://www.gamestop.ca/Jouets-Collectible/Games/891306/star-wars-the-vintage-collection-deluxe-boba-fett-tatooine

The Throne Room Boba Fett is a Black Series 6'' figure:

https://www.gamestop.ca/Jouets-Collectible/Games/891041/star-wars-the-black-series-boba-fett-throne-room


Then the Morak Boba Fett is a Target (eventually TRU) exclusive TVC figure:
