Non-Star Wars Toys / HASLAB Marvel's Galactus
« on: August 30, 2021, 11:33:53 PM »
Decided to 'back' only one of these in the last hour of the campaign. The units sold is approaching 30,000...about 8,000 more than the Sentinel.  I'm surprised that they sold more Galactus's than Sentinels. Sentinels are more of an army builder figure, not Galactus. I guess Galactus is more popular. The Sentinel is already pre-selling after-market for around $1100Cdn. Same thing with the Razor Crest.

Scout Report / Walmart BS Clone Wars Exclusives
« on: October 20, 2020, 07:56:03 PM »
It's because of a-h*les like this eBay seller why I cant find the BS Clone Wars Exclusives at retail in my area. He's selling 12 of the Mando Super Commandos which is exactly what most stores are receiving as stock.

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Star-Wars-Black-Series-Mandalorian-Super-Commando/184492118868?hash=item2af4965354:g:~WUAAOSwTmVfivUj

This is new product that just came out at retail, and it's not a product that we all have the equal opportunity of pre-ordering as Walmart's online pre-order window lasts only an hour or two.

Don't buy from these scalpers!!!...and he has crappy feeback also.

Black Series Mandalorian Imperial Stormtrooper....ugh!

First off...I hate the new packaging...it looks cheap. 7 pieces of tape....really??!! My stormtrooper face is off-centered....the nose piece is not centered between the eye lenses...the chin has black paint that looks like bad make-up running....the helmet looks like it will eventually 'yellow'....the chestplate seems to sag lower on the right side...and one shoulder piece looks bigger than the other. Oh...and this is just looking at it still sealed in the box. Way to go Hasbro...nice quality control.

Non-Star Wars Toys / HASLAB Marvel's Sentinel
« on: August 24, 2020, 11:19:38 PM »
I just bought my first Marvel Legends figure....ever! ...And it's a biggy!

I would be interested to hear from Marvel collectors if this is a good purchase/investment. I bought 4 Sail Barges as a die hard Star Wars collector and flipped 2 of them and made a good profit which brought down my cost of owning the other 2 Sail Barges I kept.  I'm curious whether or not the Sentinel could be flipped for a profit in the future. I honestly don't know what the ratio of Star Wars collectors there are to Marvel collectors. I would be interested in opinions of Marvel collectors.

I'm viewing this as a sought after collectible later and a centerpiece to a Marvel collection.....or will the market be saturated with them?... hmmmmmm

UPDATE: It's over!....22,550 pieces backed.

Wampa Cave / Canada Post Parcel Delivery Delays: A Star Wars Story
« on: June 09, 2020, 05:12:23 PM »
Hello fellow collectors!

I just thought I would vent my frustrations with Canada Post right now.  I get it that there is a Pandemic....I get it they are social distancing at the sorting facilities....what I don't get is how disorganised from a customer perspective they are at processing & delivering parcels during this time within a reasonable time. The delays I'm experiencing (and probably most of you) are beyond comprehension right now. Who the heck is organizing things there???  Nobody by the looks of things.

This is what I'm waiting on:
1. Parcel shipping from Entertainment Earth, left the USA for Canada on May 25th, has yet to processed by Canada Post  (heck I will gladly pay any duties and taxes just for a tracking update)....waiting over 2 weeks.
2. Parcel shipping from Mississauga ON, which is being shipped to my home address in Mississauga ON, shipment was picked up on May 29, was processed yesterday June 08, yet to go out for delivery. (took 10 days to process it through the Mississauga facility)
3. Parcel shipping form Montreal QC, left Montreal in transit on June 02, yet to be processed in Mississauga ON at the Mississauga facility. (7 days in transit...really?)
4. Another parcel shipping from Mississauga ON, picked up by Canada Post on June 01, has yet to be processed through the Mississauga facility (really 8 days and still not processed, it's in the same flippin' city!)
5. Parcel coming from Oshawa ON, shipment received by Canada Post on June 03, yet to be processed at Mississauga facility. (6 days processed at the post office, doesn't even show in transit to Mississauga facility.)
6. Parcel shipping from Mississauga ON, which was picked up on June 06 by Canada Post and delivered today (June 09) YAY!!! I got one........I just don't understand how this one got processed and delivered before the others.

All are medium to large packages....nothing overly huge.  All are Expedited Parcel....and 1 USA international parcel to Canada.

This is absolutely disgusting on Canada Post's part!!!

(I need my toys now.)

Scout Report / Black Series 40th ESB Anniversary Figures
« on: April 27, 2020, 01:54:47 PM »
I ordered 2 cases/sets of the 40th Anniversary wave 1 figures. They arrived today. I opened the cases up and I'm disappointed....why?..because of the return of 'Bubblegate'.
Both AT-AT Driver bubbles were separating from the cards....and one of my Leias is starting to separate on one corner. UGH!

UPDATE: I have spoken with the organizer personally, and as per their Facebook page, the toy show is still a GO!  There are approximately 50-60 tables as of yesterday. Due to current COVID-19 situation, it would be nice for those people visiting the show that you practice safe hygiene (wash/sanitize hands frenquently, don't shake hands, etc.),...and if you see an item you are interested in, that you consult the vendor prior to touching/handling an item from their table. Please respect the vendor's decision to limit handling of items.  My understanding is there will be some hand sanitizer on hand provided by the hotel. I will have some at my table and I may ask my regulars to sanitize their hands prior to handling items on my table.  This is to make sure your experience and my experience are as safe as possible.  Also, if you feel sick in anyway, please stay home.  Let's have a safe and fun toy show.

ToyConís March 15th show will feature some unique vendors, exhibitors, artists and cosplayers.  The Canadian ToyCon is a convention that focuses on action figures, comics, collectibles, toys, figurines, dolls, artwork and more from the 70ís, 80ís, 90ís and today.
