Scout Report / Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
« on: April 10, 2019, 06:45:14 PM »
I remember back in 1997, when the TRU Exclusive G.I.Joe Thunderbolt first showed up in Canada, it was like $69.99 which was ridiculous cause it was $29.99US.

I ended up waiting and sure enough, a few weeks later, the price dropped to $49.99 which was the price I was expecting it to be in the first place based on the exchange rate TRU used back then. 

If it was only TRU selling Grevious for $69.99, I would have thought that was the same thing that might have happened, but now it's being reported that other retailers are selling at that price too, then maybe it seems like that is the intended price.  I guess I should grab him at EBGames if I see him for $40 before they decide to raise the price.

However, I think EB was selling hovertanks for $200 when it first came out where other places were selling for $120.  Maybe they got hosed on the pricing for the Hovertanks and this is their way of hitting back at the other retailers...haha.

I havent seen him yet. However, with the Palpatine anouncement, I'm gonna save my money and use it on the Emperor with throne.

The helmet is also hard plastic and the head features the digital face printing technology.

Darn.  Was hoping for Han.  But at least they improved on the Clone from before.  Guess I'll drop by after work to see if my EBGames got any new stuff.

Walmart near me re-stocked archive line.  They had everything but Fett.  I did break down and buy Bossk.  I've stayed away from all the bounty hunters except Fett cause they'd be hard to get.  I've never even seen Dengar yet.  He'd probably be the only other one I'd get if I see him.

Have people seen this yet?

Same price as Amazon.  Good price too.  That's about the price the Hovertank should have been in my opinion.

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.

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.

Got my Jumptrooper yesterday. Somehow they forgot to call me when it first came in.  Good thing I checked last week and they were able to transfer one from another store so I finally got him yesterday.

Customs / Darth Revan with soft goods hood
« on: March 18, 2019, 11:57:47 PM »
I really liked the Darth Revan Black Series figure, but hated the stiff hood.  Plus, he was so hard to get (I never once saw him at retail in Canada) but eventually managed to get him for retail price from a Canadian seller.  I gave mine a soft goods hood.  Took a while to finally decide to take the plunge and do it.






I found it stupid that they made a nice head for him but you can't appreciate it cause the hood is so stiff.  This was actually one of the reasons I held off getting him even when I was able to get him for slightly higher than retail.  Here's how his head looks under the hood for those that were wondering.

I pre-ordered it in store for pick up.  I went by today and somehow, they missed calling me or they didn't get enough.

Luckily, another store had it and he called to have it shipped over for me.
