Wampa Cave / Re: Time for Star Case discussion again....
« on: July 14, 2019, 08:27:59 AM »
   earlier this year i ordered some cases from ''Mario Retro'' on amazon. the first box i ordered had some cases with scratches on them. it was also 50 bucks so maybe thats why. either way i dont think anything plastic is "super scratch resistant''. i still dig these cases. they are def good! They are Evoretro cases.

 Did they always have the PET ones ? when i look under ''mario retro'' it only carries the PVC ones. amazon isnt always the easiest searching for things. i didnt see the Evoretro amazon store till now but when u add it to your cart it says ''mario retro'' and the page results are diff if u dont type the right thing. god!

 i did find Evoretros own website during my first order though. based out of Montreal. i just figured they sold them for less on amazon. didnt notice the PET thing but thats why and they dont sell PVC ones on there own website. dont make it confusing eh?

 gee, what a surprise. TRU has a sale yet all the retro figures weren't available or hardly were if they even were. what a joke!

 wow! thats cool to see amazon is getting these. over the past 6 1/2 years ive ordered from walmart quite a few times and honestly i never once had a shipping problem or anything ''beat to all hell''.

 so this is an issue with amazon ? ive never ordered from them yet. dang!

my least favourite scene of the movie was during the big battle, when Captain Marvel had the gauntlet and suddenly was being escorted by like 10-20 various and unconnected female warriors. I have no issue with having awesome and powerful female characters. However, this scene to me was so obviously forced to try to cater to a certain audience that it is painful to see.

 Welcome to 2019! its not chauvinistic at all if you ask me. i felt the exact same way! thats Disney big time! look at how they throw certain things in with star wars. Rose and her blatant animal rights thing during the filler scene in TLJ.

 also, i never liked the show 'Roseanne' but if you saw any of the new ones they blatantly tackle all the issues of the day the exact same way. guess who owns ABC ? thats right!,Disney! its how they do things but they need to figure a way to make it less cheese/lame like they sometimes do.

 it is cool females are taking a lead. im not against that either and even the Captain America thing when he goes ''it feels like it doesnt belong to me'' thats another obvious line and seems cheesy. its not enough to just have the dude be CA so they have to add there little commercial line to it :S

 i sorta feel the sting by saying the CA thing too but im not racist. i hate everyone equally! lol :) They just cheese it out a bit and they dont have to.

  thanks for the comments guys. im still unclear but chances are they are getting worse.

 it just seems silly to me. amazon doesnt have a retail store so we cant. meanwhile the comments im reading is store inventory isnt tied to online inventory. so to me online amazon, online walmart u think would compete with eachother. i did try to do it after i ordered and not before. maybe thats why. they got the sale so they dont care. 

 i get the impression if i did it before they might say ''ok no problem''

 sounds like they are getting tighter for sure anyway. screw em!

 ya, i noticed around x mas too the pricing goes like amazon. if it doesnt sell it goes lower..they sell one item it goes back up to regular price or whatever. thats kind of good though, u can just wait for it to drop and order.

  thanks again!

  speaking of walmart, i just tried to admatch a black series figure with walmart (online) and they said they cant admatch cause amazon doesnt have a retail store. ?? is that new or was that always that way. ive never actually tried ad matching online before.

 i read from google u cant admatch in the stores (walmart) anymore but im not going to say its true cause the internet told me so.

 seems a bit off to me. its amazon online and walmart online. are they just getting worse about it ?

 yep. in the fall last year i felt like buying some of those Masterpiece Transfromers KO figures from ebay. i was green buying these and found some for half the price compared to what most people sell them for on there. i got ripped off but ebay covers you with there money back guaranttee. so luckily i got my money back! still, i felt like an idiot falling for that but i was also new to Transformers and i learned pretty quickly those rip off artists show up on and off all the time.

 Star Wars figures on ebay i had never seen that before but now it looks like they are taking a stab at doing it with those too. what a bunch of slimy people! if anyone met someone in person that did this they would get knocked out or should get knocked out. they can go out into the world and no one knows what they do. i really cant stand that type of behaviour. aaah

 anyway, be careful. dont fall for too good to be true prices like Napseeker just said.

« on: March 12, 2019, 03:30:03 PM »

  id say thats def not worth it. walmart just had this thing on sale for 14 bucks. it doesnt come with the figure by the looks of it but its the same ship.

 no word on the Retro line being in Canada i guess ? i should ask the EbGames dude next time i go. the one guy i spoke with last week was good so he might tend to look a little more. i havent heard anything yet.

Scout Report / Re: EB Games Friday Deal
« on: March 02, 2019, 06:19:25 AM »
As always, thanks Old Man Ben.
Called last night, a guy at one of the stores verified it as well.
Still nothing on the website.
One hour until 2 of the local stores open!

 i noticed that too early friday morning but i had faith Old Man Ben got official word from someone at his EBgames he goes too :r2d2:

 i got an Enfys Nest and TFA Rey. they didnt have any Rangetroopers unfortunately but they had Snoke,Young Han,Jyn plus the two i got. not too bad. they had lots of rangetroopers awhile back before this sale. i have a feeling other workers are getting stuff possibly before customers can but what can you do :S

 i mentioned to the guy about this not being listed online for sales but he didnt have much to say other then it was listed on his end as ''sw 06 blah blah'' whatever numbers he said but validated what i meant saying you cant even tell what it is. :S lame!

 They are offering the Platinum card for 50 percent off right now if anyone didnt know. i decided to get one cause Yakface and others should be coming sometime sooner then later i hope. they are cool to offer 5 bone VC figures so i figured i might as well get the card and buy some other stuff from them sale or not. i almost feel bad just getting those figs for 5 bucks but i'll take it!  lol

 thanks oldmanben! that was awesome you told us!

  lol. ya, sometimes Paul makes it seem like something doesnt bother him when you can tell it clearly does. that makes me laugh :)

  ya, i wont name names. most i forget anyway cause it changes but there is one person in particular that is one of the worse for stirring the pot and being an all around pain in the butt yet people flock to said person for other reasons that are quite hilarous imo.

 ya, exactly, they are just movies. i see people ripping apart plot lines and looking waaay too much into them. its no wonder you cant enjoy anything if you think that hard about it. i know some of whats happened is obvious but i dont mean that..u know what i mean. its just like that theory that Jar Jar Binks is a sith. ever heard that mentioned ? someone in EBgames said that to me once and i told him whoever told you that did/does too much acid! :D

13
 i remember what happened with Yakface and i remember him saying at that time he wasnt going to change and not kiss ass etc etc. not in so many words but your right, its awesome he stuck to his guns.

 Sometimes JTA does feel like a place to kiss hasbros ass over and over. other times its not so bad. they were sent a thank you type of document in a frame for promoting Jabbas Sail barge as much they did. i dont necassarily think ''the owner'' lol, is that bad. Sometimes i think they create ''news'' just to get comments etc etc so you do have a point..ive called them out on that btw! a couple times or so that i can think of ;)  a lot of the comments on there are people with nothing better to do and some that forgot to take there meds. whatever though, i dont really care either cause its not worth it.

cheers man!

 i didnt notice JTA was not involved or didnt mention it. i thought they would of when the final votes came up. maybe with all the 3.75'' news this year it felt right to not bother. who knows. so is it even over ? i dont even get it at this point! ha

 ya, usually the votes end up on the official SW site and thats the final vote. it seemed under the radar more this time around. i voted on rebelscum twice and that was it. sw fatigue!
