Wow is right. This came out of nowhere. Sounds pretty cool. Star Wars adventures in the OT era!

I love television as a medium, so I'm pretty excited to see live action star wars finally coming to TV, in not just one but two series.

I still remember getting my POTF2 Falcon from 1995 sometime in 1998 or 1999. I was originally skipping vehicles, and then changed my mind. But by then, the Falcons were all gone in most stores. But Canadian Tire had one. Can often count on Canadian Tire for outdated toys!! :)

My rebel fleet trooper was packed in a bubble mailer, which just arrived last week. So they're still using them. Probably just whatever the shipper feels like.

I'm a sucker for anything hoth and would like the han. Leia is a regular retail figure.

The price is scary. $50US plus EE extra high shipping rates plus tax and brokerage. Probably looking at $100 in the end. Which means really it's about $65+ for the Han since Leia will likely be available for $30 or less.

Just got a shipping date for my 4-LOM.

That will get me caught up. Now to wait for the Dengar wave...

My 6" Rebel Fleet Trooper I ordered in September now has a shipping date. I guess they got some more stock in. Still waiting on the 4-LOM that I ordered back in July...

So it appears we are finally getting chewie and R2 on original SW card backs. As much as it sucks to get repacks filling slots in the vintage line I will be happy to have these for my carded vintage collection.
I'm certainly more excited about these than the 6" battle droid and padme.

Met up with Derek to make a sale/trade and had a great visit as well. It was great to shoot the breeze on SW collecting. Super easy person to deal with and would happily deal with again.  :)` :)`

No, I checked, they're Amazon.ca prices. Pretty scalpy of them.

Hmm yeah you're right. Amazon is so odd. When I first found these pages they showed up at about $20 but if  looked down the page I could click to get another option and it took me to the 6.99 price. My initial searches were taking me to a third party seller. I thought maybe that was what was happening for you.

Hopefully the price will drop again at some point. And hopefully they will actually get stock!!

Those are likely third party prices. You might be able to still find them at the 6.99 under "other sellers". Otherwise it appears amazon may be presold out at the moment. If more stock becomes available it should go back to 6.99. But yes they seem to have weird algorithms.

Star Wars Movies & TV shows / Re: The Mandalorian
« on: October 16, 2018, 07:49:28 PM »
I have a feeling the series won't be deep diving into Mandalorian history. My guess is that it will be mostly location specific meaning there won't be a ton of sets.

I agree. I think it will be more about the adventures of the individual mandalorian. Choosing a Mandalorian is just good marketing. And whether you're a child or adult boba fett still has damn cool Armour.  In the original movies he didn't have depth of character but that doesn't mean he wasnt badass and didn't have a cool mystery factor about him. Using a Mandalorian plays on that but I think it will likely stand on its own. At least I hope so. Just the ideal of following a character around the star wars universe from episode to episode is enough to intrigue me. It's only a single image but it's pretty awesome.

Star Wars Movies & TV shows / Star Wars Resistance
« on: October 08, 2018, 12:11:00 AM »
Just noticed Showcase is running a SW marathon. TFA is on tonight. But tomorrow sandwiched in between ROTJ and TFA at what looks to be about 6:15pm on my PVR is the debut of Resistance. Looks to be a 1 hr premiere.

I'm not exactly clamoring for new SW in this era. Especially after TLJ and how much of a tool Poe Dameron was, this seems like an odd choice to focus a series on. Anyway I'm definitely going to check it out.

Wanted to give folks a heads up as I just stumbled upon this. Star Wars cartoon on Showcase... odd but welcome.

Still have not seen the concept vehicles in store but there are now pages up for three of them on amazon.ca

https://www.amazon.ca/Hot-Wheels-Starship-Prototype-Millenium/dp/B0777RVK18/ref=aw_st_pd_dx_s_5/132-1421012-4338007?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B0777RVK18&pd_rd_r=d4616d15-86a1-4fdc-b4f7-25e82c68639f&pd_rd_w=hHec3&pd_rd_wg=zNV4S&psc=1&refRID=0KYFN45NF82ZHJ4WHTQN

Can search for Hot Wheels Starship Prototype and they should come up.

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.
