Wampa Cave / Re: Episode 9 Trailer

Brianakarobin, that must have been bananas sitting in that hall with that audience and seeing that trailer! I remember being at Celebration when the Ep3 trailer and title dropped - everyone lost it and went nuts!

And luckily they shipped them to us from Quebec so we didn't get dinged with any customs or brokerage fees!

I couldn't be happier with the barge,  Hasbro knocked this one out of the park! My son and I had a great time putting together Jabba's legendary vehicle! Out of all 3.75" star wars vehicles and playsets, this definitely has the most play features and hidden details. Anyone not opening theirs, I get it,  but realize in this case you are missing out on some cool stuff so you may want to make an exception.

 Outer box had 5 or 6 gashes but inner box was ok and the actual vintage box was minty. Yakface was in great shape too. Maybe the Barges that went to Canada weren't handled as much or maybe it was just luck.

My wife texted me about 45 mins ago. She had no idea it was coming:

"Ahem... Jabba's sail barge is here. It's almost as big as me."

IanToronto, no need to fake one, I think if you showed the boss the photo of 4 barges they would instinctively agree you have some sort of illness!

Forum poster bespin_boy posted this on rebelscum.com, if it's accurate,  that's cool:

"Hey Canadian backers. I phoned Hasbro this morning and he confirmed the Canadian barges have shipped from the Hasbro warehouse in Longueuil, Quebec! We should all have our tracking info by/on Monday..."

You had me going for about 4 seconds,  Jedipatrick! Hopefully the barges get delivered before April 1 or there could be some merciless April fools posts.  :P

I called Hasbro customer service for an update and darthric's summary is pretty much it. They had a slight delay but expect to start shipping them out in the next couple days.

Solo (2018-???) / Re: Kassel Run 3.75" Falcon $65 @ Amazon.ca

For 3.75" stuff - yes.

I'd even say Hasbro SW in general for quality at a reasonable price, we've passed the high water mark. I think the latest 6" black series stuff looks absolutely great,  but I don't consider $30 for a 6" figure to be a reasonable price.

I shouldn't even limit it to Hasbro, take a look at what Hasbro was able to deliver in their Titanium Ultra line (6" to 7" sized die cast vehicles) for $12 to $18 in 2006 to 2010 (roughly) and compare that to Mattel's hot wheels elite at $50 to $80 for roughly the same product with a nicer box.

Yes, it's definitely the least impressive of the 3.75" Falcons,  I was waiting for the sale because I've picked up all the other 3.75" Falcons up to this point so I figured why quit now. We really reached a high water mark for Hasbro SW toy quality (at a reasonable price) back in the 2004 to 2012 range.

Solo (2018-???) / Kassel Run 3.75" Falcon $65 @ Amazon.ca
« on: March 10, 2019, 11:49:11 PM »
The Kessel run 3.75" Falcon is currently $64.77 at Amazon.ca, buy it there or show it to toys r us for a price match.

https://www.amazon.ca/Star-Wars-Kessel-Millennium-Falcon/dp/B072QMZTYT/ref=sr_1_10?keywords=Star+wars+falcon&qid=1552275772&s=gateway&sr=8-10

Is it worth $65? I don't know, but that's much better than $130 for folks that have a falcon corner in their star wars room.

The box sure is small and light compared to the BMF.

I don't know, but I'd assumed the entire shipment came by boat to the USA then they dropshipped the Canadian orders to Hasbro in longeuil Quebec for distribution. They did indicate last year that Canadian orders were being shipped from Canada.

Fyi, I checked in with Hasbro Customer Service today (March 8) and the rep indicated they are still planning to ship Canadian orders out to customers starting on March 14.
