It's one of the reasons we still have Netflix.  You won't be disappointed with any of the seasons.

Exactly.

Wampa Cave / Re: Hasbro New 5 inch Figures
« on: July 20, 2019, 04:30:03 PM »
I was perfectly fine with the basic line of figures. 3.75" GOA could have continued with new figures instead of repacks. This new line is already going to be $9.99 USD (at least $11.99 here) and definitely resembles the Disney Toybox figures from last year. Hopefully there will be a basic line for TROS and The Mandalorian despite Hasbro saying TVC and the Retro Line will continue as the home of 3.75". TVC can't cover both of those when it's almost always repacks these days.

 :fett:

The important part is TVC continues.  They have.their margin on it and they know collectors will pay. 

They are still just sticking their heads in the ground and ignoring the fact that the tide has turned on toys and it less kids and more collectors, and ita still a kids toys company.  Hence if they cant sell 3.75" 5poa to kids, theyll keep trying something else.

Meanwhile, stores barely order TVC and all you see are Wave 1 everywhere you look. The price needs to be closer to USD already. $12.99 compared to $17.99. Yes there's the exchange rate, but it's still hard to justify for one figure at times.

 :fett:

Don't care about retail that much myself.  I just order online.  Cheaper than hitting retail all the time.

Oh I see... I didn't bother with the description, just saw the pics and the title and assumed it was OK.

To be honest, I think most peoples problem is that it's Cookie Monster instead of something else.  It's actually a pretty cool Cookie Monster replica.

And unless it was a Star Wars item (or a MLP for my daughter) I doubt I'd have bought anyway, so it could have been practically anything i wouldn't buy. (though I'm sure I could come up with something else if I really tried)

Hopefully they try something else next.  I'm interested to see how this goes.

Oh man we never get the good conventions in Winnipeg  :(. If anyone's going to FanExpo and willing to try to help out on a Luke 3 Pack and rainbow Vader, PM me. I'll cash or trade to make it worth your while.

They limit you to 2.  Of course, they DON'T limit the number of visits you'll be making, so it's not a super hard limit.  I'll be going twice, for example

What's everyone's take on the Fan expo Exclusives?

https://www.starwars.com/news/star-wars-exclusives-san-diego-comic-con-2019

The 6" 40th Vintage Collection Fett looks great - will definitely be picking that up. I like that is has the old style Kenner look, since there are already a lot of Fett releases (the Archive one being this year).  I hope they do a 40th 6" just like the SW 40th .

The Luke Jedi Destiny Set 3.75" .  I'm repeating myself, but these are the WORST rehash of a classic look. I like the set, but god I wish they'd redo the look.  I might make a custom for this set.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but Luke as Stormtrooper hasn't been released as Vintage Collection... is there a super-articulated version of Luke Trooper I don't remember?

The Vintage Collection (TVC) / Re: TVC - Jabba's Palace Diorama
« on: May 28, 2019, 04:42:50 PM »
Just announced as a WalMart Exclusive at ToyFair!

Jabba's palace's walls + Ree-Yees and Han Carbonite (TBS) on TVC cardbacks individually carded!

Hopefully they'll be available to Canada!

I'm so excited that the Walmart exclusive is something I have 0 desire to get!

Now those target exclusives, they look sweet.


I just re-read my post here and I must not have noticed the figures were carded at the time.  Of course I want them.  But I think patience will work out here.

I'm hoping to get a TIE Fighter for $19 USD - from the sounds of it that shouldn't be too hard.  Hopefully (Eventually) we'll get the same with this playset.

I HATE exclusives.

Scout Report / Re: Post Retail Finds of NEW PRODUCT Here!
« on: May 23, 2019, 11:25:22 AM »
stopped at my local to see to but not a thing. just same old figures.
then got home and found my shipment from target came in, so worked out. got the 2 figures and the tarkin retro figure with board game.

Yeah well Target cancelled my Luke troopers, and sent me beat-to-hell cards for the troopers.

Thankfully I was wable to pick up both at TRU today.

Did you get one or want one Mike?  I can help.

No I'm all good, thanks though!

Bascially the shipping is like $29 for the first item and then $2 for items on top.  So it starts to make it easier if you gather it all up into one shipment.

I noticed Walmart.ca has their Black series 6" figures all marked down to $19 each.
Which indicates to me that the $5-$10 blow out maybe just around the corner. Like the past three years.


PS - Happy Belated Birthday JJReason!😀👍🎂


Tuesday evening!!!
4lom is now available on Walmart.ca for $19.97 (a harder figure to find, even though it's a year old)
4lom now available $19.97
