Wampa Cave / Merry Christmas everyone!
« on: December 25, 2018, 11:55:10 AM »
How'd you all make out for Star Wars stuff this year?

We made an order from Target shipped to Canada so I got the Solo Trooper 6-pack, Molock Black Series and the Vandor-1 Playset. I'm very happy!

Found approximately a dozen TLJ figures for $4 each at my local Ontario Dollarama

Online Shopping - Who's Got the Hot Items??? / canadiantire.ca
« on: October 17, 2018, 12:38:26 PM »
I noticed today that Canadian Tire is advertising some very low clearance prices on some of last year's Star Wars stock. The ROTJ 3-Pack for $10 and the Saga 8-Pack for $25, for instance

Wampa Cave / What's up with the scalper pricing by Amazon?
« on: July 01, 2018, 12:07:18 PM »
Does anyone know of a change in Amazon.ca policy recently to have "dynamic pricing" or some other garbage to justify overcharging for in-demand toys?

Here just two examples of Ships from and sold by Amazon.ca. product listings at significantly over MSRP:


Compared to, say Qi'ra which is listed at retail price: https://www.amazon.ca/Star-Wars-Force-Corellia-Figure/dp/B0721JXH1Y

I know they're just toys meant mostly for adults with disposable income, but this makes me so angry that I'm purposefully directing my collecting dollars elsewhere.

Scout Report / Solo toys tomorrow?
« on: April 12, 2018, 08:23:24 PM »
So, what do we all think? If I go to a store in Canada tomorrow, will I find a bunch of Solo toys?

Off Topic / Site like this, but for Marvel Legends?
« on: February 22, 2018, 12:20:23 AM »
Anyone collect Marvel Legends?
I've gotten in to them a bit more recently and I'm looking for some good collector resources. Anyone know of a site like Snowtroopers for Marvel Legends? Something Canadian-based would be my preference.

Thanks.

Off Topic / Where to buy Skylanders
« on: November 12, 2017, 08:42:00 PM »
My kids just started getting in to Skylanders.
He's got a few on his wishlist that I can't track down in town. I never paid much attention to them in the past and it seems like some characters are rarer than others.

Anyone know of any online stores that have reasonable prices & ship to Canada?

Anyone find anything interesting, Star Wars-related?
So far, I've found:

Wampa Cave / Rogue One - What did you think? (Possible spoilers)
« on: December 15, 2016, 11:38:56 PM »
I thought it was pretty good. Enjoyed it a lot. I think I'll like it better on second viewing, now that I know the characters.
The last 30 minutes were amazing. Overall, I'd say it was the best structured of all the Star Wars movies. It might not be my favourite, but it ranks near the top.

Scout Report / Toys at The Bay
« on: September 18, 2016, 05:15:35 PM »
I was looking for some socks today and stopped in to The Bay at the mall. Imagine my surprise when I found a large, new toy section. A quite sizeable section of the floor, though mostly Lego, there were aisles for all the major toy brands. Prices seemed in line with TRU. Might be a good place to watch for sales. It's nice to see toys back at The Bay.

Also noticed they sell online:

Scout Report / Rogue One Black Series found in Ontario
« on: September 13, 2016, 08:52:04 PM »
Like it says in the subject, I found the full assortment of 6" Black Series Rogue One figures at an Ontario Walmart this afternoon. I don't really collect that line, so I left them all there.
$24.97 each

I loved it. Since it twice already. I didn't care much for the 3D version because I kept wanting to look at the edges of the screen to see the details, but things got too distorted.

It's very different in style to the prequels and, really, even the OT. It was very obviously a JJ Abrams, to me, but still very much a Star Wars movie. I'd rank this as probably my #3 favourite Star Wars film right now. Maybe #2. I'll have to let it sink in a bit, but really, I have only positive things to say about it right now.

Well, maybe one negative thing ... I can't believe I have to wait 2 years to find out what happens!

Wampa Cave / Going offline
« on: December 09, 2015, 08:55:53 PM »
Today is my last day visiting my regular blogs, forums and news sites. I'm unplugging as much as possible for the next week, to avoid any last-minute spoilers. I can imagine as more people start seeing TFA, more spoilers will leak.

See you on the other side :-)
